Display and Design:
The Honor Note 10 features a minimal design with thin bezels to accompany the massive 6.95-inch display. On the front, the Honor logo is found on the bottom while the earpiece, selfie camera, and proximity sensor are on the front. On the back, there is a dual camera setup on the top left while the fingerprint sensor is conveniently located on the center. The Huawei Honor Note 10 features a glass on both the front and back with an aluminum frame. The overall build quality is impressive but the large size of the smartphone means that it is not suited for one-hand use.
As for the display, Huawei has made use of a AMOLED display on the Honor Note 10 with a FHD resolution and HDR10 compliance. The quality of the display output is admirable with great colors and contrast, there is a clear distinction between the whites and blacks, and the sunlight visibility is impressive as well. However, with the 6.95-inch screen size, a QHD resolution would have been perfect but we cannot really complain with the price tag. The Honor Note 10 is a great smartphone for watching videos, playing games, and working on documents owing to the large screen size.
The Honor Note 10 comes equipped with Huawei’s own premium chipset, the HiSilicon Kirin 970. The smartphone features an octa-core processor with the Mali-G72 MP2 GPU and 8 GB of RAM on the most high-end configuration. The Huwaei Honor Note 10 performs exceptionally in this department since it can handle HD games and heavy multitasking quite easily without lag. The performance to price ratio is on the higher side for the Honor Note 10 which is always the right side of the scale to be on. As for benchmarks, the Huawei Honor Note 10 has a score of 205132 in AnTuTu 7 which is impressive for a higher midrange smartphone.
The dual wide-angle plus telephoto camera on the rear is becoming a standard for premium smartphones nowadays and the Honor Note 10 follows suit. The camera configuration is impressive with a 16 MP wide-angle + 24 MP black-and-white camera on the rear that can take crisp and detailed photographs. The colors are impressive and the dynamic range is high as well so the Honor Note 10 should satisfy the requirements of casual photographers. As for the front camera, there is a 13 MP selfie shooter that can take wide angle photos which is ideal for capturing entire scenes and taking group photos.
Battery and Connectivity:
The Huawei Honor Note 10’s massive 6.95-inch display is coupled with an enormous 5000 mAh battery which ensures an excellent battery life. On average, you should be able to make it through 1.5 days easily with the Honor Note 10 on a full charge with data connectivity, web browsing, and calls. To top it all off, Huawei has put in generous 4.5 V/5 A fast charging support as well to help the Honor Note 10 reach from 0% to 100% in quick time.
Everything is pretty much standard with connectivity on the Huawei Honor Note 10 with Bluetooth 4.2, NFC, FM Radio, and USB 3.1 Type-C connectivity.
