I had a P9 from work and had no issues with bluetooth on it

 

 

 

The M10Pro was able to connect to my bluetooth speaker over the weekend and was able to stream Spotify to it then when I tried connecting to it again, it doesn't work, so it appears to be intermittent.

 

Have turned off the bluetooth scanning in location settings as freitasm suggested and am able to connect to my bluetooth earphone. Will see how I get on with connecting to the speaker when I get home today.

 

 

 

Thanks for the replies and suggestion.

hey guys.

 

well, i am just trying to enter my mate 10 IMEI on the US verizon website and guess what it turn up?

 

"The phone associated with the Device ID you entered is not compatible with the Verizon Wireless network."

 

so is this mean i can't use this mobile while we are at US?

 

surely that is not correct right?

@jackyleunght2002 plenty of other networks in the US it will work on. Verizon is a CDMA / LTE network the others like T-mobile and AT&T your handset will work fine on

You can't use it on Verizon, Verizon is a CDMA/LTE network that only allows whitelisted devices to connect to it. Think Telecom's old CDMA network. AT&T and T-Mobile are the networks you'll be using if you travel to the US with an international device.

Bought a Mate 10 new off trademe for $839 and am impressed-great camera, great battery life , running Oreo and has headphone jack!
Also comes with 5amp charger that gives 50% charge in 15
mins.
If I was a big name mobile manufacturer I would be worried.

An earlier post already stated this but, i cannot connect my plastation controllers via bluetooth to my mate 10 pro, the controllers worked fine via bluetooth on my old S5, hopefully this is addressed in the next software update.

Have you tried turning off the bluetooth scanning in location settings menu before connecting the controllers with M10Pro again? It worked for my bluetooth earphone and speakers.

Because every time i upload a video to my chat group everyone complains of the terrible audio playback quality, this happens on every device including my pc except from the phone i uploaded it from which is my mate 10 pro. Anyone know why?

Just received:

 

 

Huawei is thrilled to announce the release of the EMUI 9.0 update to Huawei smartphone users in New Zealand following the launch of its latest flagship smartphone chipset Kirin 980. Based on Android Pie that was introduced earlier this year, the new OS update will introduce a customised next generation user experience.

 

“We are excited to launch this new update in New Zealand. As one of the leading smartphone manufacturers in the global market, Huawei’s latest EMUI 9.0 update contains the newest features to make the user experience on the Mate 10 and P20 Series even better than before” says General Manager of CBG Huawei New Zealand, Gavin Cheng.

 

The enhanced UX and high-speed performance of EMUI 9.0 enable an unmatched OS for Huawei phones that are intuitive and simple. EMUI 9.0 is now available on Huawei P20 Pro, Huawei P20, Huawei Mate 10 Pro and Huawei Mate 10. The beta version will be available on Huawei Nova 3i, Huawei P10 Plus and Huawei P10 to users who register to join using the HiCare application.

 

The EMUI 9.0 achieved another milestone with a wide range of incredible features. With a concept to ‘enable a quality life’, this unique user interface (UI) system is improves the usability and experience through the numerous breakthroughs, including the following highlights:

 

Enhanced and Intuitive User Experience

 

  • Seamless gesture navigation - To streamline and optimise the smartphone experience, Huawei has introduced a new and improved gesture-based navigation system for an even more intuitive navigation experience. The gesture-based navigation gives users the ability to swipe either left or right for a seamless ambidextrous experience. Additionally, Huawei has redesigned apps such as the world clock and photos to implement advanced single-handed control features, allowing users to easily control apps from the top to the bottom of the screen without overextending their thumb.
  • Less is more – The EMUI 9.0 update reduces the number of setting items by 10 per cent, taking it from 940 to 843. This makes it easier for users to enable all location services with one touch, instead of enabling GPS, WLAN, and mobile location services separately, streamlining the process and saving time. Reducing the number of items has ultimately led to a more superior user experience.
  • Natural and immersive - EMUI 9.0 brings nature into the home of Huawei users by incorporating nature-inspired sounds. All new alarm ring tones include natural ambient sounds ranging from the sound of water flowing to birds chirping. EMUI 9.0 leverages the Smart Colour Picker to improve the contrast and vibrancy of the UI as well as the readability of text, creating an immersive and natural experience. The new system focuses on a faster and smoother animation, minimising the possibilities of lagging between the usage of different apps and functions.
  • Digital Wellbeing – The update includes features that are designed to improve quality of life when it comes to smartphone usage. Colors & Eye Comfort offers options for a paper-like viewing, a customized viewing, or an Eye Comfort viewing for more comfortable reading at night. The update also comes with a variety of settings to achieve true digital balance with the ability to access a comprehensive break down of their screen time, as well as how often users unlock their devices. Users also have the ability to set boundaries with the option to restrict screen or app time without limiting the device from performing essential tasks such as Messaging and Dialer. 

High-speed Performance

 

Speed is everything to Huawei and that is reflected in the EMUI 9.0 update. Not only is Huawei one of the first handset makers to launch a custom OS based on Android Pie, but the new system also boasts a smoother performance with 12.9 per cent improvement from its predecessor.

 

The app launching time has also shortened by a noticeable amount. It can launch popular apps such as Instagram 12 per cent faster and Spotify 11 per cent faster as well.

 

One of the heavyweight features of EMUI 9.0 will be its GPU Turbo 2.0 technology, the second generation of Huawei’s innovative graphics processing acceleration technology. GPU Turbo 2.0 can enhance touch controls in games and works in tandem with the App Assistant feature to deliver a smooth, premium mobile gaming experience. These features all allow for a more efficient user experience while operating the phone.
