It`s nice to see Nokia making a strong comeback after all the less-than-good years recently. Realy do like the new Nokia phones. As for the Honor 10, I`d like to think of it as an affordable flagship rather than a midranger, more similar to say OnePlus 6. I do share your oppinion on the EMUI, but with that said I actualy like it, I`ve never found it studdering or lagging, not for long anyway. Generaly speaking all Huawey phones` softwere is a bit more hungry for resources but that only becomes a problem if you buy a low-end phone. If you are willing to spend a few extra bucks the EMUI`s flaws simply just vanish!
If camera is my prearoity then i will go for nokia 7 plus becoz it have eis for video which honor doesnt provide for their phone.
Nokia 7 plus seems to be natural and real not like that honor which whitesh photos
i bought the nokia 7+. lovely phone to use and have in hand. camera is a little disappointing but it's ok. 7+ also has a really nice big screen, the edges are thin and makes the phone feel thinner than it is. love the 7+.
Honor greatly improved the fps performance in the latest update.
There was also something wrong with your device, Geekbench scores were way too low.
It's best to use "warm" color calibration in the Honor as stock calibration adds too much blue.
You can customize EMUI's appearance to your liking. You can't do that with stock Android which has many more limitations therefore it may not be appreciated by many users (including me).
Kirin 970 is comparable to SD835 so in terms of chipset the Nokia is outgunned but the stock Android of Nokia is quite awesome compared to EMUI, but the Huawei phones have a custom file system to prevent slow downs over time which works quite well trust me 80% perfromance for almost 2 years is quite amazing. Edit: Adreno GPU is probably better on the Nokia if not on par with the Mali of the Honor...
I have the 7 Plus, and recently installed the Gcam port from the Pixel. Its a massive improvement over the stock software, and i would say, pretty close to Pixel 2 quality. Super impressed with the phone, but will be nice when they get some of the lag sorted.
If I had to pick one, it would be Honor 10 by a small margin. Because:
1. Honor 10 can have very colour accurate display according to GSMArena if you change the colour calibration settings
2. I want a louder speaker on Honor 10 so that I don't miss any calls or notifications
3. Honor 10 has better camera overall
4. Honor 10 has a high-end chipset. Plus, if GPU Turbo is coming to this device through the OTA, its graphics performance most likely will be on par with SD845 which means it's going to be much better than SD660 on Nokia 7 Plus in terms of not only CPU intensive tasks but also in real life gaming performance as well
Nokia 7 Plus, however, has:
-Better battery life
-Faster OS update
-Definitely cooler design (though the back feels a bit plasticky due to thick layer of primer on the surface)
What the hell is wrong with those Geekbench scores.... Are you kidding me... 1100 single core and 5000 multi core on honor 10.....fpr gods sake don't fake the test or probably you got defective units..... Lots off ppl watch your videos and reviews why come up with wrong information..... How the hell could sd 660 be portrayed to be faster than kirin 970....bad comparison
A five hundred sixty dollar smartphone doesn't seem midrange to me.... just because competition has ridiculously high prices doesn't make them the "premium" range.... I would say the honor 10 is a high end device. I mean, the honor 10 has the kirin 970 processor. That is definitely not a midrange specsheet for Huawei...
why is the honor 10 classed as a midrange? it´s a budget high end smartphone, meanwhile the nokia is a premium midrange (a real premium midrange and not a hyped up one like A series from samsung or the Z play from motorola)
Whilst it's last years chipset, I'm curious to know how the Kirin 970 did so well in benchmarks on, for example, the Huawei Mate 10 and P20 which put it really close to, and in some instances surpassing, the SD835 yet in this review its struggling against really mediocre chip. Is it RAM configuration, software? Seems very odd.
Thx for the great video, exactly the comparison that i wanted. :D
I am still deciding which phone to buy, I am using a Honor 8 for over a year and a half, and wanted to upgrade to H10 but the Nokia seems cooler.
Can these phone play 1080p YouTube videos in 2x speed without lag?
Pick Nokia 7 plus for the camera because Honor 10 camera sick with over saturated images and low quality edge detection when creating depth effect. Honor 10 camera got some fancy stuff like Ai camera which is good help and that "rabbit face" thing that I will never use. Honor 10 night camera can be set for Nokia 7 plus if you adjust the shutter speed with Pro mode.
Pick Honor 10 if you like to play game with high quality setting which some games Nokia 7 plus need to use medium quality setting for better performance. Honor 10 can use EMUI screen record to record you playing game. But I see a Youtuber that play Mobile Legend and the notch block the display. I try the preinstall game like Asphalt that didn't have notch problem.
Take me two days to study and decide, so I end up pick Nokia 7 plus for the more nature camera colour, video with EIS & OZO audio, bigger batteries, bigger screen and no notch.
