The P10 is Huawei's latest high-end smartphone in a, compared to the Mate 9 phablet, more compact form factor. A 5.1" Full-HD display with very thin bezels allows for a design that easily fits into even small pockets. In the interior of the device top-end components, including Huawei's HiSilicon Kirin 960 octa-core chipset and 4GB of RAM, provide top-end performance.

The Leica-branded camera comes with the same specification as its equivalent in the Mate 9 and combines a 12MP color sensor with a 20MP monochrome chip. Both lenses have an F2.2 aperture and the color variant also features optical image stabilization. As before, color and monochrome image information is combined for better image detail, higher dynamic range and lower noise levels. There are also a laser-assisted autofocus, a two-tone LED flash and 4K video recording. On the software side of things a new 'Leica-style' portrait mode uses 3D face detection and applies a combination of fake bokeh, adjustable illumination and 'beautification' effects to your portrait subjects.

Our review

The Huawei P10 combines good imaging performance and features with premium build quality and fairly compact dimensions. There are better options around for video shooters but the P10 performs very well in stills mode, especially in lower light. The DNG Raw files offer a lot of potential for image quality optimization as well.

Good for: Low-light shooting, Raw capture and playing with camera features

Not so good for: Video-shooting and busy days without recharging opportunities
