What the Critics Are Saying...

Honor’s last few top-end phones have impressed us, and the Honor 10 is no exception. There’s a lot to love here, especially considering the price compared with other flagships, and we particularly enjoyed the camera, the display and the overall design.

The Honor 10 seems to be the most balanced midrange smartphone with premium design, capable camera and modern notch-based screen. The non-optimised 19:9 aspect ratio screen for video playback and absence of stereo speakers might not impress multimedia buffs but the sleek and fast performance, couple...

The Honor 10 is a toned down Huawei P20/P20 Pro. You can say that it's a souped up Honor V10 too. What matters is that the Honor 10 brings in some of the best bits we liked about the P20/P20 Pro and the View 10: both fantastic phones in their own right at their respective price points.

The Honor 10 is a stylish and speedy midrange Android phone, but its camera isn’t the best you can get at this price.

Pocket-lint

The Honor 10 offers heaps for its asking price, cementing its position as one of the affordable flagship phones available. Only a sub-par fingerprint scanner, divisive screen notch and some software/battery quirks hold back this great-looking slab of phone from perfection.

The non-optimised 19:9 aspect ratio screen for video playback and absence of stereo speakers might not impress multimedia buffs but the sleek and fast performance, coupled with top-notch innards makes it a winner in midrange flagship segment.

The Honor 10 is a toned down Huawei P20/P20 Pro. You can say that it's a souped up Honor V10 too. What matters is that the Honor 10 brings in some of the best bits we liked about the P20/P20 Pro and the View 10: both fantastic phones in their own right at their respective price points. The package is, as a result, one that offers the best of both worlds: high-end premium looks, high-end premium hardware: at a rock bottom price.

OnePlus has something to worry about

from AndroidPIT

The Honor 10 is the complete package, especially if you consider the price. It’ll be difficult to top for the time being. The new Honor smartphone looks great, is superbly crafted, and offers performance for which you pay twice as much and even more elsewhere.

No escaping the notch

A more affordable Huawei P20 without the Leica camera - that pretty much sums up the Honor 10. Similar build and striking looks, best chipset Huawei has to offer, and (of course) a notched display.

Best mid-range phone you can buy right now

from Tech Advisor

Even though battery life is a little underwhelming, it’s a minor quibble with what is an exceptionally good phone for the price. The display, cameras and build quality are verging on those of a phone twice the price and the performance is the best we’ve seen on an Honor phone.

Carves itself a very strong niche

from Digital Trends

The camera is top-notch, the body is a beauty, and the price is incredibly tempting. The software and performance issues are minimal, and unless you’re coming from much more powerful hardware, may not even be noticeable.
