What the Critics Are Saying...


PC & Tech Authority

A highly capable and competent flagship, and at only $899 outright in a world of $1,000-plus smartphones, a financially attractive one as well.

The Mate 10 is easily the best flagship smartphone you can buy for under $1,000, and has no problem going toe-to-toe with far pricier handsets in terms of camera, performance, design, and battery life.

Notebookcheck

The Huawei Mate 10 is an outstanding smartphone. The few minor quibbles – the (in our case at least) wobbly volume rocker switch, the lack of an IP 67 certification, the context-based brightness adjustment, the postprocessing of the photos – don’t really detract from the overall concept.

- Marcus Herbrich, Notebookcheck
TechSpot

If you are after a large-screen phone and just want a great display, excellent battery life, good enough performance and features like a headphone jack, the Mate 10 does provide a decent option at a lower price point.

- Tim Schiesser, TechSpot

The Huawei Mate 10 may be hard for you to get your hands on, but it’s worth the effort if you want a big-screen phone and don’t quite have the budget for a Galaxy Note, iPhone Plus or Pixel 2.
