CNET Tech Review
A whole lot of phone for not much cashIt's not as glitzy as the Galaxy S9, but the Honor View 10 packs a punch and doesn't ask for much in return.
[MUSIC] If you're in the market for a new powerhouse flagship phone, but you couldn't quite find enough loose change down the back of your sofa to afford Samsung's Galaxy S9, then Honor View 10 might be the better choice for you. It's got pretty much everything you would expect from a top end Flagship phone including a six inch screen that stretches right to the edges with a resolution that will make your photos really pop. You'll also find a super charged processor inside which will blitz through any game you're likely to throw at it. The honors metal back doesn't look quite as swanky as the curved glass on Samsung's S9, but I do like this deep blue hue that you'll find on most of Honors phones. Put two camera's on the back, one of which using color and the other only in black and white. I found that outdoor shots are pretty rich and vibrant, while indoor shots in lower lights also looked pretty decent. Selfies from the 13 megabit [UNKNOWN] front facing camera aren't great however, particularly in lower light situations. That's something that's worth bearing in mind if you're a gigantic narcissist who loves posting endless photos of your face to Instagram, like me. [MUSIC] [MUSIC] What you won't find on the View 10 is any kind of waterproofing so you'll have to be extra careful when you're walking near a swimming pool, the sea, or near any of your friends carrying big trays of drinks. So, no, honor's phone doesn't have the same kind of wow factor as Samsung's all singing all dancing flagship. This one definitely won't turn heads on the bus in quite the same way. But at only 450 pounds you will have plenty of cash left over for some pretty stylish headwear. Something like this for example. A bit of cheese hat. This is what's It's gonna get me the big bucks. The cheese hat. On the bus. At a movie screening. Dinner with the queen. Breakfast with the prince. Yeah, yeah, I'm feeling this.
