Huawei P10 Plus: An upsized powerhouse with a sleek design
The P10 Plus is another solid smartphone from Huawei, sporting an attractive design, high-end hardware, and a top-of-the-line camera. Here’s a rundown of its impressive specs and features.
Remarkable design and build
Despite a larger screen size, the P10 Plus is barely any bigger than the regular P10. It’s still 7mm thick, only a few millimetres wider and taller and just 20g heavier. Overall, this is quite impressive for a 5.5in phone with a front-mounted fingerprint scanner. It’s a very similar size and weight to the P9 Plus.
The P10 Plus has a gorgeous, desirable design, wielding a smooth and round shape on the edges. With its aluminium body, it feels nice in the hand that will remind you of high-end handsets like the iPhone 7.
Solid specs and hardware
The P10 Plus houses a Kirin 960 chipset that is also found in the Huawei Mate 9. This processor is something of a beast, sporting 8 cores backed up by a Mali-G71 GPU. For this reason, this phone is lightning fast and certainly an improvement on the already impressive P9 Plus.
Another feature that makes the P10 Plus so fast is the whopping 6GB RAM inside which is coupled with 128GB of storage. Not even high-end phones like the S8 have 6GB of RAM so this handset is quite impressive. There's also a micro-SD card slot for adding even more – up to 256GB.
At first glance, the P10 Plus has the same dual-camera setup as the regular P10 but that's not quite the case. It comes with 20 and 12MP monochrome and colour sensors with features like optical image stabilisation and a dual-tone flash. With that, you’ll get high-quality bokeh effects and awesome black-and-white images.
Meanwhile, the P10 Plus front snapper has 8 megapixels with a f/1.9 aperture. It is also equipped with Leica optics that allows you to take decent selfies. At the same time, it has the amazing ability to automatically detect if you're taking a picture of one person or a group and will adjust to wide-angle if needed.
Decent battery life
As expected in a Plus model, the P10 Plus has a larger battery than the normal model. At 3750mAh, it can get through a day of heavy usage which is something a lot of phones can't manage.
