Huawei Mate 10 Pro

The Good The Mate 10 Pro is sleek and solid, very powerful and takes great photos in both colour and black and white. It's also water-resistant and battery life is superb.

The Bad You can't expand the storage and there's no headphone jack. Its software extras are gimmicky.

The Bottom Line While it doesn't have all the Galaxy Note 8's features, the Mate 10 Pro earns its place in the high-end big-screen pack.

A beautiful, big-screen bruiser

Huawei has pinned its hopes on the Mate 10 Pro ($736.00 at Amazon.com) as its flagship phone for the year. It was designed to be just as good as the Galaxy Note 8 ($897.90 at Amazon.com). And with its huge display, powerful processor and cool camera, it gets pretty close.

The Mate 10 Pro isn't quite as fully featured as the Note 8, missing as it does the S Pen stylus, expandable storage and its own virtual assistant (though we're not totally sold on Bixby Voice). At around £700 or AU$1,099 (that converts to about $920), this phone isn't cheap. But solid all-round performance makes it a good option if you want a gorgeous, big screen, high-end phone without the Samsung name or the Note 8's staggeringly high price (£869 or AU$1,499; the Note 8 costs about $950 in the US).

The Pro here isn't the only phone in the Mate 10 ($594.61 at Amazon.com) series. The standard Mate 10 has a smaller 5.9-inch display, a fingerprint scanner on the front (rather than on the back) and it isn't waterproof. Internal specs are much the same and it should be the cheaper model, although pricing and availability aren't cemented just yet.
