I really like the look of this phone - apart from the iphone/Pixel-like bezels it is packing.

 

If the price drops similar to what the P9 did, it could be very good value compared to the more expensive Pixel/Galaxy/iPhone options.

I wonder comparisons to Samsung S8 + 

 

I still have my Note 5 and am looking at upgrading soon. What is the camera like on the Mate 9 which is apparently the  same as the P10 ??

I have one here (the P10 Plus black). It's a beauty - and still smaller than the Mate 9. Here is the release with prices, which are very sharp!

 

 

New Zealand consumers will soon have access to the HUAWEI P10 and HUAWEI P10 Plus smartphones, which combine beautiful hardware with the latest advances in software. Available in modern colours and finishes, the HUAWEI handsets introduce new Leica front and back cameras with advanced portrait features to make every photo a cover shot. 

 

The P10 and P10 Plus are the world’s first smartphones to offer Te Reo Māori as a standardised language option, which will also be available on selected HUAWEI devices supplied new in New Zealand in the future.

 

“As culture and technology continue to intersect in every aspect of our world, we want to deliver new products and experiences that ultimately improve and enhance life,” says Roson Luo, General Manager Consumer Business Group HUAWEI New Zealand. “The new HUAWEI P10 and HUAWEI P10 Plus weave together the exceptional imaging capabilities of Leica and our stand-out design and hardware innovations to bring users a powerful device experience.” 

 

The new devices are built around 5.1-inch (P10) and 5.5-inch screens. Powered by Android 7.0, the handsets are equipped with HUAWEI’s EMUI User Interface, include larger batteries for extended operation and offer 64GB + 4GB RAM of memory. 

 

Key features include:

 

  • Leica Dual-Camera 2.0 for the HUAWEI P10 and Leica Dual-Camera 2.0 Pro Edition for the HUAWEI P10 Plus, featuring artistic portraits with precise 3D facial detection, dynamic illumination, portrait enhancements, natural bokeh effect (out of focus blur) and HUAWEI Hybrid Zoom.
  • The world’s first Leica front camera with a new, brighter sensor and larger F/1.9 aperture (F1.8 for the Pro Edition) for outstanding self-portraits.
  • Trendy colours and design, including the industry’s first Hyper Diamond-Cut metal finishing and colour variants created in the first cross-industry partnership with Pantone.
  • Kirin 960 processor, HUAWEI Ultra Memory and new EMUI 5.1 with industry-leading 4x4 LTE MIMO antenna system and 2x2 Wi-Fi MIMO antenna system for unparalleled performance.

The P10 handsets establish new benchmarks for integrated photography. With a 20-megapixel monochrome sensor, a 12-megapixel RGB sensor and enhanced fusion algorithms, the P Series sports advanced facial detection, dynamic illumination and portrait enhancement features.

 

The P10 Series offer portrait features driven by precise 3D facial detection technology that leverages 190 detailed identification nodes for rapid, accurate feature recognition. A smart imaging algorithm automatically applies studio-like re-lighting and beautifying effects for radiant portraits. 

 

Using a depth-of-field algorithm, a natural bokeh effect creates sharper, clearer and more vivid colours in the foreground, while the background remains elegantly blurred. The effect is available in the RGB and monochrome modes, and can be refocused after the image is taken.

 

Portrait features are also available with the 8-megapixel front camera for enhanced selfies. The HUAWEI P10 and HUAWEI P10 Plus automatically detect when a user is taking a selfie; if the device detects a selfie with multiple people, it automatically switches to wide-angle mode.

 

The HUAWEI P10 Plus features the Leica Dual-Camera 2.0 Pro Edition. This includes new Leica SUMMILUX-H lenses with a larger F/1.8 aperture and higher optical capability. These lenses capture sharp close-ups, quick actions shots and more light in low-light conditions.

 

The Dazzling Blue and Dazzling Gold colours are available in a Hyper Diamond-Cut finish - a high quality crafted metal that offers a subtle reflective look and repels fingerprint marks. Both will be available to purchase in New Zealand alongside Prestige Gold and Graphite Black. Other colours in the range not currently available in New Zealand including Greenery, Rose Gold, and Mystic Silver with a sandblast finish, and Ceramic White in gloss finish.

 

The HUAWEI P10 is sleek and slim at 6.98mm, with the camera window flush with the back of the device. Both its 5.1-inch and 5.5-inch models feature the latest Corning Gorilla 5 Glass protection and narrow bezel edges, while the HUAWEI P10 Plus has a 2K display for more detail.

 

The fingerprint sensor replaces the navigation bar and is located on the front of the phone, under one continuous pane of glass, making the screen view bigger, with smart touch navigation gestures faster and more ergonomic.

 

The P Series is powered by a Kirin 960 System on a Chip (SoC), with optimised multicore performance and a GPU which delivers a 180 percent improvement in performance and a 40 percent increase in power efficiency over its predecessor.

 

HUAWEI’s new user interface, EMUI 5.1, incorporates a machine learning algorithm to learn user behaviours and anticipate app usage; in tandem, HUAWEI Ultra Memory anticipates app usage and manages RAM, so most-used apps and services load faster and outperform in multitasking.

 

With 3,200 and 3,750 mAh batteries, the P10 and P10 Plus handsets support HUAWEI SuperCharge technology for low voltage, low temperature fast and safe charging.

 

With 4x4 MIMO (four physical antennas) and support for 4.5G networks, the handsets deliver faster, more stable connections even when the signal coverage weakens. Similarly, dual antenna 2X2 Wi-Fi MIMO delivers fast Wi-Fi coverage.

 

The HUAWEI P10 and P10 go on sale in New Zealand on Wednesday 12 April 2017. The P10 is available from all major network providers and major electronics retailers, priced at NZ$999, and the P10 Plus is available from 2degrees, Vodafone and major electronics retailers, priced at NZ$1199.

 

All P10 and P10 Plus devices come with a three month, accidental breakage free screen replacement (T&Cs apply). Huawei also offers a free nation-wide pickup and delivery service to all customers. Customers can call Huawei on 0800 Huawei to book the pick and the delivery service.

Camera on the Mate 9 is fantastic. Most underrated camera on the block.

Is there much size difference the P10 Plus and an iPhone plus?

 

How is the EMUI compared to something like touchwiz?

I used the HTC One since the HTC One M7 version through the HTC One Ten and moved to the Huawei series with the P9 (now Mate 9). Never had a problem with UI. Actually using Microsoft Arrow Launcher now anyway...

Does the NZ packaging for the P10 or the P10 Plus come with the optional case? I have been seeing on Huawei's website, it says optional so I am not sure what that means.

 

I think the P10 Plus would be a good replacement for my iPhone Plus. I would have preferred the LG G6, but I havent seen or heard about its launch here in NZ.

I just bought a P10 yesterday.

 

Definitely doesn't come a case.

 

 

 

Speaker is OK but nothing really special 

 

 

 

Took some photos today, the camera is not bad.

 

The Fake shallow depth of field doesn't always work well and can look really fake for some of the photos.  But when it works well then it's okay  

 

 

 

I'll do a P10 camera review. But anyway, here are a few photos I took today using the P10.
