HONOR VIEW 10 : FIRST AI POW­ERED SMART­PHONE

PCQuest - - HANDS ON -

We all have a smart­phone, but still, hunger is there to get a more ad­vanced de­vice. The smart­phone in­dus­try has grown rapidly and it’s the most hy­per­ac­tive as well. With the launch of new in­no­va­tive phones, we be­come the wit­ness to some amaz­ing tech­nol­ogy. And the new rev­o­lu­tion is here with Honor View 10 (V10) smart­phone pow­ered by ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence (AI). Though AI is not new to the mar­ket but this is the first AI-pow­ered smart­phone, let’s see how it helps to im­prove the us­abil­ity of a ‘smart­phone’.

The smart­phone fol­lows the cur­rent trend, a tall screen with nar­row bezels. It sports a large 5.99-inch screen with the 18:9 as­pect ra­tio. On the top and bot­tom, the bor­ders are thick com­pared to thin bezels on both sides. On the top, it has selfie cam­era and ear­piece grill, along with an ar­ray of sen­sors. And the fin­ger­print scan­ner is placed at the bot­tom. The metal body feels pre­mium and of­fers good grip. At the back, It has dual cam­era setup and a sin­gle-LED flash at the back. Where the curved sides of­fer good grip, you can feel it a lit­tle slip­pery be­cause of a flat back.

Honor V10 has IPS screen, mea­sur­ing 5.99 inches with a Full HD+ (1080×2160) res­o­lu­tion. It pro­duces rich colors and has a great amount of bright­ness. You can en­joy videos, games and other con­tents on the screen. Also, you can eas­ily use the phone un­der di­rect sun­light. Honor of­fers you dif­fer­ent dis­play modes that ad­just the color tem­per­a­ture. You can choose to get neu­tral or vivid color re­pro­duc­tion.

The Honor View 10 has fin­ger­print scan­ner be­low the dis­play which is quick to un­lock the phone. Ad­di­tion­ally, Honor claims to have the ca­pa­bil­ity to un­lock the phone us­ing your face. As like fin­ger­print, you can add your face and it will un­lock your de­vice quickly.

You also get a pri­vate space to store your per­sonal data. It cre­ates a dif­fer­ent pro­file where you can lo­gin us­ing dif­fer­ent pass­code and fin­ger­print. All the con­tents will be safe and en­crypted on the phone. Smart con­trols The smart­phone runs on An­droid Oreo with an EMUI 8 on top of it. There are a few cus­tomiza­tions that will en­hance your ex­pe­ri­ence with the de­vice. You can change the way UI looks. Smart ges­ture con­trols are there to help you in­ter­act with the phone quickly and eas­ily. It makes sin­gle hand op­er­a­tion more com­fort­able which comes handy for an al­most 6-inch de­vice. You can dis­able the on­screen nav­i­ga­tion but­tons and in­stead tap long press, or swipe the fin­ger­print scan­ner to sim­u­late the Back, Home, and Over­view but­ton ac­tions re­spec­tively.

Honor View 10 is backed by a 3750 mAh bat­tery that can stay with you for more than a day with mod­er­ate us­age. In our video loop test, it man­aged to play video over YouTube for about 11 hours and 20 min­utes. In case of low bat­tery, you can lower the res­o­lu­tion to HD+ to save en­ergy. Also, the ul­tra-sav­ing mode is also there in case your bat­tery is drain­ing fast and you still need to juice. At the back, Honor V10 has dual 16 + 20 MP cam­era setup with PRICE: PER­FOR­MANCE: FEA­TURES: 5.99-inch LTPS IPS LCD 1080x2160p screen, 1.8GHz octa-core CPU, 6 GB RAM, 128 GB ROM, ex­pand­able up to 256 GB, An­droid 8.0 OS, Dual 16 + 20 MP rear and 13 MP front cam­era, 3750mAh bat­tery Good per­for­mance, cam­era, fea­tures Un­com­fort­able cam­era bumps LED flash. You can cap­ture beau­ti­ful snaps us­ing the rear cam­era in fa­vor­able light­ing con­di­tion. It cap­tures land­scapes with ac­cu­rate colors but lacks in de­tails of dis­tant ob­jects. How­ever, you get am­ple amount of de­tail with macro and other shots. You can record 4K videos with the pri­mary cam­era and shoot at 1080p at 60fps.

The front 13 MP cam­era is fairly per­fect for self­ies and groufies in most of the light­ing con­di­tions. You would love the por­trait mode, where the only sub­ject would be in fo­cus and the back­ground goes blur.

Com­bin­ing the Octa-Core pro­ces­sor and 6 GB of RAM with Mali-G72 MP12 GPU, the View 10 is ca­pa­ble to han­dle var­i­ous apps eas­ily. We used the phone for more than 3 weeks and loaded it with sev­eral apps. It runs smoothly with­out any vis­i­ble per­for­mance lag. Also, we added sev­eral high graphics in­ten­sive games. It han­dled them per­fectly, even when we played As­phalt 8 and Fifa si­mul­ta­ne­ously, along with other apps in­clud­ing What­sApp, Face­book, etc. we switched be­tween apps but there was no lag. Bot­tom­line: With­out a doubt, Honor V10 is a per­fect choice if you con­sider fea­tures and pric­ing. Vi­brant dis­play with nar­row bezels and amaz­ing over­all per­for­mance, it’s a strong con­tender in the cat­e­gory.
