Here's my review of the Huawei P10 and Huawei P10 Plus. Both are amazing smartphones but you get a little more with the P10 Plus. But is it worth it? Watch to find out!

About the sound cutting off for a second, while switching display orientation - this is not an issue! That is actually a feature, called "Stereo+", which kicks in only in landscape orientation. It balances the two speakers, so the left and right audio channels are routed respectively to their corresponding speaker, while in portrait orientation the top speaker (being less powerful by design) only aids the bottom one. "Stereo+" can be switched off in sound settings. Hope this helps someone :)
the problem is that people wants to much from a phone if it takes good photos make calls do text, and wifi calling i dont see the problem and as from some of you i think at the end of the day if you did not have your phones you would cry
I had an p10 plus, and was a horrible experience with the software, allways working somehow clumsy. Just got a htc 11, and is so much smoother, everything works just great as it should for a true flagship
Ordered the P10 plus yesterday. Have a Mate S at the moment and it's the first phone I've had that has never lagged or suffered from battery fade. I've had Samsungs, HTCs and a ZTE prior to the Huawei and they all deteriorated over time.
I don't think I'll get anything else. If it wasn't for the fact that I broke my Mate S, I'd still be using it.
with that kinda price and no water proof. Yeah you definitely going to take a beat from the S8 and G6 especially that both have dropped their prices in a serious scale. P10 and 10+ are definitely very good phones and I don't even have to test them on my hands. I had a wonderful experience with the p9 lite alone for a year. The problem is the price, I was shocked with the prices that Huawei offered considering these phones are rebels to overpriced samsung and apple.
My first options when I looked for a new phone were the OnePlus 5 and the LG G6. Good thing I did more research and found the P10 Plus.
Though more expensive, I really liked that fact that it has a micro SD card slot for expandable storage (OP5 didn't have it). Another thing I liked is the IR Blaster, which both the OP5 and the G6 didn't have. I don't know about other people, but the IR blaster is a must for me. Also, it's got some built in features which i found really cool, like screen recording, twin app, and those knuckle gestures.
The only down side is that the phone isn't water resistant.
The good thing is that I'm coming from and LG V10, and it isn't water resistant as well. I've never really gotten into a situation where my phone got spill with or submerged in water, so I guess the lack of water resistance isn't gonna bother me that much.
Hope I won't regret my purchase! :D
Reviewers ALWAYS complain about flagship phone being smudge or finger print magnet. And here is Huawei P10 and P10 Plus that successfully got rid of the smudges yet managed to stay stunning with the diamond cut finish, and no reviewers has ever complimented Huawei for a job well done... I just don't get it. If you keep complaining about something, clearly it's something you can't fail to notice when it's fixed.
The same with Xperia phones, reviewers complain a lot about the reachability of finger print sensors at the back of the phone, or the phone needed to be lift up before you can unlock. Well here is Xperia that intelligently placed the finger print sensor at the side just where a right-handed thumb naturally lands, or a left-handed forefinger naturally can touch. And no one complimented Sony for this nice finger print sensor placement.
Reviewers should stop complaining all year round. Sometimes when a feature stopped you from complaining, then a little compliment is not something expensive to give, unless of course when the reviewer has some stinky agenda such as being in Apple's payroll.
Missed another selling point here
The size of p10... god I hate Samsung keep making their phones bigger
I mean I loved the size so s7.. now s8 is weirdly taller
There are enough people out there want their phone usable with one hand
I'm buying a new phone today and I'm having that last minute debate. I've had a Huawei G7 Ascend for the last while and honestly I adored it, hence the reason I'm really tilting towards the p10. The sizes of the phones have never been an issue for me (I have shovel hands) and the camera features are really intriguing for me. While the colours have been another point of interest, I'm sad to say Ireland seems to be only stocking them in black. I really wanted the green.
Your video really helped me decide whether to get the P10 or P10 plus so thank you!
Matthew Moniz You really did, thank you. I got the p10 and I just love it, I can't get over the speed of the fingerprint ID unlock, the camera is incredible and there are so many amazing things to do with it, I haven't gotten around to trying half of them.
The sound quality and picture is just brilliant. All in all I'm delighted with it. Would 100% recommend! 😊
I have the black P10 Plus and I absolutely love it. The camera is amazing. Normally I will not purchase a phone with an LCD display (I am a huge fan of AMOLED displays), but I find the display to be above average on this device. The battery life could be a bit better, but it's sufficient enough for me. However, I love taking pictures of my children and (as you mentioned in the video) the camera experience is quite nice. I must admit that I am not in love with EMUI because of the cartoonish icons, but I can remedy that with Nova Launcher. Overall, I would rate this device a 4.5 out of a possible 5. On the other hand, I would rate my Mate 9 Pro a 5 out of 5. It is hands down the best device I have ever owned.
great review matt. been supporting you since your channel was still new, watching this grow only makes me happy since i was here from the beginning. do you think Huawei software needs improvements and if yes does this improvements only brings it closer to the UI of iPhone with extra features?
Anyways Good job! keep it up! :)
Joshua! I know you've been around for so long! You're the best and it's been awhile since you asked me to giveaway something! lol Huawei is getting better with software just needs to tone down the gimmicks and let a little more stock android shine through. They're almost there!
i'm from europe, just bought mine..honestly because to me it's the slickest phone out there now, and the preformance meets the looks..btw, got me the normal version, not the plus, and they added me a gift box witch content is truly fantastic, 10000mAh power supply with additional cable and adapter, prophoto stand, and a wicked case..in other words, after two years of S6 and S7 both EDGE, the P10 is a dream..
Matthew this is one I really enjoyed watching but I did not do my research on.I did on the Mate 9 IMO the specs and the whole package I really liked as matter fact I reached out to the Company before they released the Mate9 here and at that time they were not sure they were going to.I have to say when they did and I read it i truly wanted the Mate9 and recommended it.I have some who came back to Thank me.I think they liked the specs and the whole package on the Mate9.I really hope they keep up with the Mate9 and even come out with more with that Line.I still really like it and have seen it in person.Also Tech Zillar did a Awesome Review as well.I think some can explore and try something different types of phone's that they actually might enjoy.Then they came out with more.I really like the Review and Love the people who do Review's on other phone's they might even be surprised.I say research and check it out you just might really like it. Thanks so much for sharing appreciate it Deb
Only reason I'm looking at the P10s is the camera, and the only reason I'm leaning towards the P10Plus is the IP rating because I'm outdoors most of the time I take pictures. I think I'll wait a while and see how G6 and S8 play out. Great video!
Definitely P10 plus. Best phone I've ever had coming from the HTC 10. The 10 is garbage cannot even handle Android N. You can disable the onscreen navigation buttons and use the finger print scanner. You also get 3 years warranty with HiCare which includes phone and screen replacement free. It's also cheaper than an iPhone 7 with insurance.
New subscriber here! great video breaking down the differences to a great depth than most! Ive had my eye on the P10 Plus as I want a bigger screen than my P9 for photography purposes. and that's the main attraction for me! the camera software is fantastic and I love the dof effect even though it's not perfect. feel free to check my Instagram for shots I've taken lately on my P9! www.instagram.com/austriker
+Unique193 if it's not on amazon it's not available on Amazon in your country. The link takes you to the country you're in and checks for availability. It's easier instead of linking 100 countries and checking for availability myself
I wonder if the P10 Plus is coming to canada one way or the other. Regarding comparing this phone with the G6 and S8, I think the pricing is one major factor for huawei compared to the LG and Samsung. The mate 9 (which is their first high end device this year) is priced at 600 USD (800CAD) which is about 200 USD or so lower than things like the Pixel XL and S7 edge. If the P10 is priced reasonably once it comes to rogers (and probably later on to fido) I can see people buying instead of the G6 (which reviews didn't come out that great for it, especially when it comes to battery life), and the S8 (which samsung managed to price higher than the iPhone, who would have thought that day would come).
Nice haircut by the way.
haha thanks (regarding the haircut)
Both the P10 and P10 Plus are coming to the Rogers. They'll be priced pretty high. In the UK the regular P10 starts at £550 which is like 900 CAD. The problem is most people don't know who huawei is yet at least in North America. It will be interesting to see if they sell many units here. Hope you're enjoying your long weekend!
I bought the Huawei P10 Plus, and I really like it. About the camera: If you use pro mode in dark light or just on a sunny day you get some much better pictures! Maybe if you have the time to perfect the photo you can use pro mode. You can activate it by swiping the little triangle from the left to the right.
Hey Matt. i had the P10 for a few days on upgrade. it's now waiting to be returned. amazing phone but as a heavy demanding user I'm not waiting months for the bug fix to be sorted. what was wrong? Huawei told me to de-activate Google Now voice commands to use sound recording. like WhatsApp Voice recording, Shazam, meeting recording... may not seem a big deal but I'm always listening to music and if i like something I'll tag it. I'm crap at taking notes, so I'll record a meeting....
Google is working on a fix as the phone keeps popping up an error message and tapping OK does nothing making it impossible to navigate an app. Also, Huawei don't give the function to rearrange music in a playlist, it's sorted alphabetically, as a user who re-arranges music on a daily basis this was a brick wall. i used Google Play, but kinda besides the point here. anywho, i got the Lenovo P2 coming next week. I'm gonna give that a go with it's 5100mAh 3day battery claim. I'll certainly put that to the test. I'm using 90 - 137GB a month lately!
Watching this video on my P10 plus . Yeah, the selling point of this phone is the camera. The aperture in this phone is customisable, ranging from f0.95 to to f16 which allows me to focus on a particular subject or everything(landscape photo). None of any other phone has this feature I guess
Matthew Moniz Coming from a long time Huawei user, the phones are getting better with every new edition. I had their first ever flagship, the Ascend P1 way back in 2012, and I loved it. It had a good display for that period, not HD Ready, but very bright and colorful, a pretty solid 8mpix rear camera and 1.5 GB RAM memory and I used it for 2 years and gave it to my gf to use it. Now I have a P8 Lite, which is a very good phone, I got it from my mobile operator for a Serbian Dinar, which is pretty much one US Cent, I've had it for two years as well, but it started to deteriate and is now a little bent and now I am definitely looking to upgrade to P10. So that's my experience with the brand so far. I've also used Samsung Galaxy S3 Neo and LG L Bello, but I like Huawei because they make very good phones and their design is cool and it's pretty easy to use. And I pretty much always root for the underdog, lol. 😁
