The Huawei Mate 10 is official, along with the Mate 10 Pro and the Mate Porsche Design edition. Although they have small variations, they do share a lot in common, and the new Mate 10 will provide a user-experience baseline which is slightly sublimed by the two derivatives. We spent some time with the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro, so let’s take a more in-depth look at how good they are.

Note that the devices we handled were not the final retail units, and some details, along with performance and camera numbers will be looked at when the final hardware will land in our office. The street price for this phone remains unknown at this point, but we will update this when the news comes from the channel and carrier partners. At this moment, we will assume that it competes at the high-end, and we have compiled the following list of competitors:

The Galaxy S8+, LG V30, iPhone 8+, Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 and Pixel 2 XL. We may tweak this line up by the time we give our final score, but for now, this should be compelling enough as a comparison point to the Mate 10, which is a 5.9” high-end smartphone.
