Honor 10 Dual Camera Smartphone Review - Verdict

Honor10 Blue (1)

Value For Money

The Honor 10 offers fantastic value for money considering the processing power behind it and 4GB/128GB RAM and storage. It's available for £399 from Amazon UK. It's also available in several countries via the Honor website

It is, in essence, the same phone as the Huawei P20 underneath the skin, with slightly different camera specs and of course without the Leica brand on the lenses, and without optical image stabilisation. The Huawei P20, however, has a heftier price tag of £549

This phone is a bargain - it has a reasonable price but specs to rival the premium offerings currently on the market. A close rival in terms of specs is the OnePlus 6, which was announced in May 2018 and also features dual rear cameras with a wide aperture. 

For those that want a premium phone, the Samsung Galaxy S8 has now dropped to a reasonably priced £438 in the wake of the Samsung Galaxy S9 being released. This phone is waterproof, dust resistant and has the capacity for a microSD card, unlike the Honor 10. If the lack of these features doesn't bother you, then The Honor 10 is definitely an extremely capable phone for photographers.

Honor 10 Verdict

Overall, the Honor 10 offers good specifications, a good camera with AI capability to recognise scenes, fast processing power and plenty of storage space. This makes the phone very desirable, especially for those that love to take photos on the go. There are a good amount of filters and editing capability within the phone for your images. However, the lack of optical image stabilisation (OIS) is a shame and will put this phone at a disadvantage for video recording. Noise would also be lower if the camera used a 12mp main camera, rather than 16mp.

However, the excellent pricing can't be overlooked. Yes, the camera doesn't carry the hallowed Leica branding, but it does offer similar features, with 2 rear cameras, one of these being a 24mp monochrome camera, and there's also a 24mp selfie camera. 

The Honor 10 is a stunning looking phone, with the iridescent back being a real eye-catcher. Slim, well made and offering high-performance capability, the only things it's missing are waterproof / dustproofing and the ability to insert a MicroSD card if you wanted to. Other than this, it's definitely a more budget-friendly rival to many premium offerings.
