The first technical aspect to measure is screen size. He Huawei Mate 10 has an almost frameless screen 5’9 inches, while the Mate 10 Pro reaches up to 6 inches. In comparison, the Galaxy S8 + goes up to 6.2 inches, while the Huawei P10 Plus and iPhone 8 Plus settle at 5.5 inches. Only Samsung offers more screen, while offering fewer bezels.
RAM and storage
The RAM of the Mate 10 is 4 GB, while the Mate 10 Pro is 6 GB. The Galaxy S8 + has 4 GB, the P10 Plus 4 or 6 GB and the iPhone 8 Plus has 3 GB. Apple loses out and Huawei does not fall below its other rivals. Regarding internal storage, the Mate 10 has 64 GB and the Mate 10 Pro 128 GB. Its rivals also offer that minimum of 64 GB, but the P10 Plus has a version with 128 GB and the iPhone one with 256 GB. Here the differences between the Mate 10 and the Mate 10 Pro end, so from now on we will talk about both indistinctly.
With the exception of the Galaxy mobile, the rest of the devices have dual cameras. The Mate 10 offers 20MP + 12MP on its rear cameras and 8 MP on the front. The Huawei P10 Plus mounts the same cameras and the iPhone has 12MP + 3MP and 7MP on the front. Samsung stays at 12MP for the rear and 8MP for the front.
Processor and battery
The Mate 10 uses an eight-core Kirin 970 processor, a better than the Kirin 960 in the P10 Plus. Samsung’s mobile uses an 8-core Samsung Exynos 8895 and Apple opts for a 6-core Apple A11 Bionic. In the same order, the capacities of each battery are: 4000 mAh, 3750 mAh, 3500 mAh and 2675 mAh. All have fast charging. The Mate 10 outperforms its rivals in both sections.
Extra: other aspects to consider
The Huawei Mate 10 also points to convergence. You can project your mobile on a screen and continue using your smartphone. For example, you can always have an app on a big screen and continue to use your mobile normally. this places it as a competitor to the Galaxy S8 + and its dock to connect with a PC. With this mode it lasts 3 hours, and you need a special cable to charge at the same time.
Its new NPU (Neural-Network Processing Unit) system makes it stand out in data processing. It is the first mobile in the world with this system, so it has a huge competitive advantage.
Conclusions: Huawei stands up
Once the comparison is completed, we can assure that Huawei has released two terminals capable of fighting the best of the market. Its characteristics position it as a smartphone to consider in the highest and most disputed range of all. If you want to compare other mobiles to see their characteristics, you can do it with the MobileZona comparator.
