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.
