Huawei improves on the perfect with the P10The P10 defies the odds by improving on what was already great in the P9
Huawei’s P10 has managed to surpass its predecessor by improving on what was already one of the best smartphones on the market.
Huawei’s trademark spin in their smartphone designs comes by adding their own touch to the technology that already exists in mobile engineering landscape, for example, Huawei does not only implement android technology like some other smartphone makers do, but incorporates their EMUI 5.1 software that features machine learning. Huawei also makes their own chipsets from scratch and was the first smartphone maker to seriously consider incorporating dual lens photography at a high-performance level.
The new P10 now builds on that existing technology by upgrading the monochrome sensor on the rear camera from the original 12MP to the current 20MP on the P10. Huawei’s newest flagship product will also be the first smartphone to feature the company’s lossless zoom, a technology developed by Huawei that enables digital zoom without loss of quality.
A huge advancement for the device is Huawei’s implementation of optical image stabilisation (OIS) which will prevent blurry pictures caused by shakiness by compensating for the movement of the device.
The P9’s Leica engineered dual lens was a pioneering idea that has since been mimicked by the likes of its competitors such as Apple in its iPhone 7 plus and Samsung, who has also reportedly experimented with implementing the technology into their new S8 model during its prototyping stages, but opted not to install it in its final design.
The front camera has also undergone an upgrade and now features a Leica co-engineered 8 MP front facing lens. The device also features “portrait mode” which automatically adjusts the lighting to ensure high quality selfies. The P10’s new “adaptive selfie” feature on the front camera also automatically detects when there is more than one person in the shot. It will then change the camera’s settings to take a wide angled picture if the phone feels that it needs to.
Despite the main selling point of the P10 being its camera, the device does not lose out to its competitors in other departments. The P10 plus packs a large 3750 mAh battery while the P10 packs a 3200 mAh batter, both support supercharge that enables fast charging. Compared to another similar device on the market, the S8 only measures to 3000mAh, the same size as Huawei’s 2016 P9.

Android 7.0 Nougat
The Android 7.0 Nougat runs alongside Huawei’s EMUI 5.1 which has implemented machine learning into the smartphone’s software. According to Huawei, EMUI 5.1 will be able to gauge how its user operates the device and adapt to him or her, increasing its overall operating efficiency. Because of this, Huawei says that the P10 will run faster a year after purchase than if it were fresh out of the box.
The P10 also packs Huawei’s newest processor, the octa-core Kirin 960 CPU. The Huawei made chipset slaps around its competitors in multi-core efficiency tests scoring above the likes of Samsung, Qualcomm and the iPhone’s A10 chip.
Huawei’s P10 has also improved its display and increased the pixel density of the device, measuring at 432 PPto 424 PPI on the Huawei P9. It’s also improved on its screen’s durability with its Gorilla Glass 5 screeI compared n instead of the old third generation Gorilla screens on the P9.
Putting another cherry on top of this device is the hyper diamond cut finishing that’s anti- fingerprint, anti-scratch and anti- slip.
The Huawei P10 is currently available in black and gold. Two new coloured models, blue and green, will be released on the 5th of May
*Pantone coloured P10, blue and green are available on 5th May.
Pantone coloured P10 Plus will be available within this month.
The newest generation of Huawei’s flagship line has surpassed all expectations of the company and if this is the benchmark with which we can set as an outlook to the company’s future products, the world of mobile phones looks brighter than ever.
