Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - CONTENTS - BY NIDHI SINGAL

Huawei may not be launch­ing its flag­ship Mate 10 in In­dia, but is of­fer­ing the same AI experience in the Honor View 10 that boasts a 5.99-inch dis­play with 2,160x1,080p resolution. The de­vice is com­fort­able to hold, and the screen of­fers bright colours, good view­ing an­gle and is a de­light to stream con­tent on.

Un­der the smart as­sis­tance set­ting, sys­tem nav­i­ga­tion gives users the op­tion to switch be­tween the off-screen nav­i­ga­tion but­ton and the vir­tual nav­i­ga­tion bar. Un­der the nav­i­ga­tion dock, a tap on the home but­ton takes one to the pre­vi­ous page, touch and hold takes one to the home screen, and hold and slide to the mul­ti­task­ing page.

The Honor View 10 runs on EMUI built on An­droid 8.0.0, which comes with the usual Google apps, along with some bloat­ware. The de­vice is pow­ered by Kirin 970 pro­ces­sor paired with 6 GB of RAM and per­forms most tasks with ease. The AI ca­pa­bil­i­ties of the pro­ces­sor have been put to good use in the cam­era, trans­la­tor app and to en­hance the over­all per­for­mance. The de­fault mode in cam­era can de­tect up to 13 sub­jects, in­clud­ing flower, green plants, text, cat, food and more, and en­hance set­tings au­to­mat­i­cally. The dual cam­era (20 MP + 16 MP) at the rear is good at capturing depth im­ages in wide aper­ture mode, which can be ad­justed while edit­ing im­ages.

For real time trans­la­tion, there is a Trans­la­tor app pow­ered by Mi­crosoft that sup­ports a wide range of lan­guages and works in the off­line mode as well. Un­like other apps that sup­port im­age or voice trans­la­tion, this one also sup­ports text and con­ver­sa­tional voice trans­la­tion. Honor will of­fer smart recog­ni­tion fea­tures, pow­ered by AI, such as fa­cial un­lock­ing, in­tel­li­gent dis­play ro­ta­tion and an in­tel­li­gent no­ti­fi­ca­tions lock with the next up­date.
