Huawei P10 Features

Display and Build

Huawei P10 features a 5.1 inch IPS-NEO display with an FHD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and pixel density of 432ppi (pixels per inch). The screen's level of brightness makes its content view-able under the sun, its wide viewing angles makes it great for gaming and watching movies, and its IPS panel results in better blacks compared to regular IPS panels. Serving as a protection on the screen against cracks and scratches is a Gorilla glass 5, but there is no oleophobic coating on the screen, hence oil like spots or greases from the fingertips or face may be visible on the screen.

The Huawei P10's build material depends on its colour, where the dazzling blue and dazzling gold colours come with a hyper diamond technology to avoid scratches, the ceramic white variant comes with a ceramic build,  and the platone greenery, silver, gold or rose gold variants come with a stainless steel build. This build material and hyper diamond-cut finishing that improves the texture of the phone is better than that of the P9. This smartphone has a dimension of 145.3 x 69.3 x 7 mm (height x width x thickness) and weight of 145g. The dimension gives the phone a flat shape, and its medium sized screen and light weight makes it easy to handle and operate with one hand. 

The P10 also features a fingerprint sensor which Huawei claims is the fastest and most reliable in the industry. This sensor is located at the device's rear and serves to give users privacy over their files. Other than offering enhanced level of security, this fingerprint sensor also supports the use of gestures like a long press to return to the home screen and swiping to access recent apps menu. The fingerprint sensor also serves as a navigation key to go back in a menu, home, and access Google Now. This smartphone is also water resistant, but its IP rating signifies that it can only resist a few splashes of water.

Hardware and Software

To give this device a high level of performance, the P10 is powered by an ARM Mali-G71 GPU and Kirin 960 octa-core processor that has dual quad-core processors running at 2.4GHz and 1.8GHz respectively. This processor is an upgrade from the P9's Kirin 955 CPU and a better one at that. Based on storage options, the P10 is available in two variants and it is expected that there might be a China Variant of the P10 too. For the available variants, one has an inbuilt storage capacity of 32GB, while the other has 64GB inbuilt storage. Both variants come with support for expansion upto 256GB, but makes use of the same slot for a second SIM.

The P10 has a RAM size of 4GB that can run graphic intensive games and support multitasking without hangs or lags. According to Huawei, its Ultra Memory technology intelligently allocates, recycles, and the compresses memory, to allow one's apps load faster. This Ultra memory is a background feature that comes with Huawei's Emotion UI and allocates more RAM to the users favorite app, to allow a smooth operation of the phone.

Huawei P10 also runs on the latest Android Operating System, Android 7.0 Nougat on top Huawei's Emotion user interface, EMUI 5.1. One can tweak this User Interface by re-adding Android’s app tray to the UI or uninstalling some unwanted apps. The UI comes with an onscreen button that makes use of a custom ultra response feature that predicts what function one's finger will access next by keeping track of their daily usage habits. There is also an ultra power saving mode to manage power efficiently by allowing access to a few apps and reducing the phone's resolution when there is need to.


At its rear, the Huawei P10 features Leica dual cameras 2.0 with a resolution of 20MP and 12MP, and aperture of f/2.2. While one camera captures in colour (12MP camera), the other captures in monochrome (20MP camera).

Other features of the camera include 4K video recording at 30fps, water splash resistance, Optical Image Stabilization and Hybrid Zoom technology that retains the sharpness of an image while focusing on a specific area on the image.

On its front, is a Leica 8MP camera with f/1.9 aperture for taking selfies that looks natural. The camera is smart enough with its new adaptive selfie mode to detect when group pictures are to be taken, thereby automatically switching to a wide-angle capturing mode that reduces its focal length depending on the number of people to be captured. Huawei claims that this camera offers twice the brightness and dynamic range of the P9. According to them, "The new front camera allows anyone to capture perfect portrait photography in Leica image style whilst the rear camera captures facial features with incredible detail, bringing your photos vividly to life".

Battery and Connectivity

The battery capacity of Huawei P10 is 3,200mAh, this battery is non-removable and based on Li-on technology. Since the device's screen is less than that of a Phablet and features a Full HD display, the power consumption won't be that high, hence this battery can last for over a day on a singe charge. There is also Nougat power saving features like the doze mode which turns off unnecessary apps in order to reduce the power consumption. 

On the P10, there is also a fast charging support done at a low temperature with its 8 sets of thermal cooling mechanics to reduce temperature rise.
