BUSINESS STANDARD Honor 10 review: Power-packed alternative to premium flagship smartphones

The Honor 10 lacks an optimized notch screen and stereo speakers, but the sleek look and fast performance, coupled with top-notch innards, make it a winner in the mid-range flagship segment


Technology News: Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei’s online subsidiary Honor on May 15 announced the artificial intelligencebased Honor 10 in India. Priced at Rs 32,999, the smartphone boasts some of the premium design elements and features of the recently launched Huawei P20 Pro -- glass-metal-glass sandwich design, notch-based screen, AI camera, etc, which -- which make it a cost-effective alternative to premium flagships. However, being a mid-range device, the Honor 10 cuts down on features like the Leica-tuned camera lenses, vivid AMOLED screen or the dual stereo speakers of the P20 Pro. But, it does sport a 3.5mm audio jack, which is not there in the P20 Pro. The Honor 10 boasts a glass-metal-glass sandwich design. The front is dominated by a notch-based screen, which leaves negligible bezels on the top and sides. On the bottom, there is a fingerprint sensor placed below the glass, adding to the utility without compromising on the overall design quotient. The glass back design seems an improvement over aluminum, especially due to its different color reflection properties. The glass is curved from the edges, something reminiscent of the Samsung Galaxy S-series devices. While everything seems to be in place, the glass design attracts fingerprint impressions which make it dirty, requiring regular cleaning. The Honor 10 seems to be the most balanced midrange smartphone with premium design, capable camera and modern notch-based screen. The nonoptimized 19:9 aspect ratio screen for video playback and absence of stereo speakers might not impress multimedia buffs but the sleek and fast performance, coupled with top-notch innards makes it a winner in midrange flagship segment.
