Huawei P10 in the test: More back as progress in Leica’s flagship?

With the Huawei P10 we have looked at the current flagship smartphone of the Chinese group in the comprehensive test. Visually, this model can be described in comparison to P9 rather than evolution rather than revolution. Some changes are not compared to the previous comprehensible and verschlimmbessern functions that worked perfectly for years. It seems as if Huawei wants to approach the nearest rivals Apple to win new prospects for themselves. But that can really work? This question, we go in a review in the ground.

Huawei P10 in the test: More back as progress in Leica's flagship?

Huawei P10 review: The Design

The Huawei P10 has visually changed compared to P9 only in detail. Looking at the front of the smartphone, the fingerprint scanner directly hitting below the display. So far, he was sitting at the back, was intuitively accessible without problems and has dominated many useful functions. This accounts for the new generation and are replaced by intricate gestures, if you decide to not use the on-screen buttons. but more on that later.

Otherwise the front of Huawei P10 looks almost exactly like that of the P9. The front camera and earpiece sit exactly in the same place and the same size. The sound for calls in 3G and 4G network has not changed as expected. for not using a Huawei logo, this can be found on the back. But even there designed more reserved. In the blue version with the unique structure that goes almost under mild.

The screen size of the Huawei P10 is 5.1 inches and is thus contracted by 0.1 inches compared to its predecessor. but that's not synonymous with more compact external dimensions. The P10 is 6.98 mm to 145.3 × 69.3 ×, while the 5.2 inches diagonally measured Huawei P9 at 145 × 70.9 × 6.95 mm is. The weight has increased from 144 to 145 grams. The differences are so marginal. It is important, however, that the battery has grown from 3,000 mAh to 3,200 mAh. Whether the term improved by we clarify later.

It is interesting, however, on the back of P10. Here, Huawei has dared something and uses a special patterned surface that reminds us of the feeling of tipping 3D images from the 1990s. Feels initially very good, but also has the disadvantage that there relatively quickly collect dirt and this is not easy to remove. The rough surface also focuses only on the center of the back. The edges are so smooth that we, the smartphone has slipped even once out of hand - but fortunately not on the ground but on the bed. Who does not like the rough surface, can choose a different color with no pattern. The models in black and silver have a smooth back.

Very familiar affects the dual camera on the back of the Huawei P10. This has changed somewhat compared to P9 and now offers a higher resolution, better image quality and low-light performance. The design but has not changed. Everything can be found again in its usual place.

The same applies to the position of the speaker, USB Type-C port, power button, volume rocker and the connection for headphones. The power button is now decorated with a red border - seems a bit out of place in the blue model. So overall no major surprises in terms of connections. It is also still remained the mono speaker. Too bad, because the Plus model has stereo sound Talk donated get. The sound is still good enough for a smartphone.
