Huawei and Honor could possibly be described as either side of the identical coin. Being a Huawei sub-brand, gets the advantage of having complete access to its own parent firm technologies and R&D. Nevertheless, in regards to marketing approach, both companies could not possibly be searching in more different directions than they may be. Honor is dead set on supplying cheap high-quality tablets so, in the majority of markets, sales proceed through internet channels only. In other areas, the 2 brands even utilize different distribution chains and their individual advertising campaigns are separate.
But priced at only $399, the flagship prices equal, or even less, to a ordinary mid-ranger and this is where things become interesting.

The Honor 10 gets got the glass body of this P20, the special paintjobs included. On paper, both also share the exact same display, same processor, same battery with the exact same SuperCharge service, same applications, and similar cameras. And the 10 is cheaper.
After meant for markets outside Huawei’s hit, both manufacturers are broadening their achieve independently, so it seems the old approach was abandoned. And that is a fantastic thing. Huawei is broadly advertising the P20 Lite and P20 Guru, while leaving the normal P20 out the dialogue. Along with also the Honor 10 is creating the run for the own location.
The dual-camera set up on the trunk uses exactly the exact same RGB+B&W combo but is based on various camera detectors. We’re yet to determine whether the picture quality could be akin to P20, however, we’re very optimistic according to our experience with preceding Honor flagships.
However enough teasing, let us pop this item from the box and find this review started.
The Honor 10 is much more affordable than the Huawei P20, thus we can not be picky about the retail bundle. Really, there aren’t any headset indoors, but what else was carried over. You want both for the quick billing to work – anything else will not do it.
There’s also a translucent silicone case to maintain that glistening curvy back protected from scratches.
