Before we round up this year, The Neo Dimension would like to do a review for the Huawei Mate 10 Pro. If you have been following our blog closely, it has been a while since we have done a review on smartphone. This time, we are doing a little different from usual. We manage to interview a prominent blogger in Singapore, Mr Chester Tan (CT) to share with us more about how he feels about Huawei’s latest Mate 10 Pro.
Q1: What’s your impression when you first touch the Huawei Mate 10 Pro?
CT: It feels solid, does not have the sleek feminine curves like the P10 series.
Q2: What did you use the phone for? What’s the best feature of the Huawei Mate 10 Pro?
CT: Throughout the 10 days, I use it as a primary phone, transferring all data from my current phone and installing my apps. The best feature that makes Mate 10 Pro stands out has got to be the EMUI Desktop. The camera is superb but is an incremental upgrade from the P10 series.
Q3: Everybody is talking good stuff about the camera? Is it really that good? Tell me more on your photography experience with the phone
CT: The camera captures images quickly without lag, the exposure is well compensated so there is little post-adjustments. I rarely use the monochrome mode because I prefer to shoot in colour then process in black-white. The best mode to shoot is the wide aperture mode, as it achieves the unique shallow depth of field which can be easily adjusted post-shooting. What I like is that adjustment is really fast and not cumbersome, something that other brands fail to achieve.
Q4: Personally, I have yet to hear bad reviews on the phone. Is there any specific area that you think Huawei could have done better?
CT: I think Huawei needs to continue to reach out to the consumers to give them a chance to experience the phone, to convince them that it is an excellent product. Unlike bloggers, these consumers do not have the luxury of testing the phones at lengths. Among their peers, someone must be using a Huawei phone who will spread the good word about the phone, then others will give it a go.
Q5: Out of 5, what score will you give to Huawei Mate 10 Pro?
CT: I give 4.5.
