T3’ S EARLY VER­DICT

THE P10 LOOKS IM­PRES­SIVE, BUT CAN IT MATCH THE BIG NAMES?

Australian T3 - - SUPERPHONE -

The P10’s fin­ger­print scan­ner is some­thing to be­hold – not only is it seam­lessly in­te­grated within the de­sign, it also fea­tures quick nav­i­ga­tion, en­abling you to use fin­ger ges­tures to con­trol the in­ter­face. You can slide your fin­ger right to show re­cent apps, or left to go back.

Let’s be fair, the P10 looks pretty stun­ning, but it’s been de­signed with prac­ti­cal­ity in mind, too. Take the re­cessed power but­ton, for in­stance, which pre­vents it be­ing ac­ci­den­tally pressed when you’re in the mid­dle of some­thing. It’s a sim­ple thing, but it’ll make a big dif­fer­ence in ev­ery­day life.

Com­pared to the com­pe­ti­tion, the P10’s screen is a lit­tle mid­dling. Sure, it still looks good, but with the ma­jor­ity mov­ing be­yond Full HD, and oth­ers – Sony, that is – push­ing the mo­bile bound­aries with a 4K HDR screen on its lat­est model, you can’t help but feel a lit­tle dis­ap­pointed by its dis­play tech.

The P10 Plus con­tains the Kirin 960 – the same chipset that ap­pears in the P10, and the Huawei Mate 9. It would have been nice to see some­thing new in its lat­est flag­ship, though you do get 4GB of RAM on the P10 and 6GB of RAM on the P10 Plus. Per­for­mance is cer­tainly swift, if not spec­tac­u­lar.
