Honor View 10, the new flagship from Huawei’s online-only brand, is now officially available in India on Amazon. Honor View 10 puts the focus on artificial intelligence and comes with a taller 18:9 display, dual-rear cameras, and facial recognition feature; all crucial for a ‘flagship’ phone in 2018.
The Honor View 10 technically replaces the Honor 8 Pro, which was the previous flagship smartphone from the company in the Indian market. Honor View 10 is priced at Rs 29,999, which means it will directly compete with OnePlus 5T, OnePlus 5, which has managed to capture the mid-range flagship market in India. So how does the Honor View 10 perform? Here is our review.

Honor View 10 review
The Honor View 10 review unit we got was in ‘Midnight Blue’ colour, which does make this flagship stand out from the boring sea of black phones. Honor View 10’s overall design though, is not so different from what the competition is offering given that ‘bezel-less’ display is the new trend. The Honor View 10 has a full frontal display, and the company has said it will include a pre-attached screen-guard on the phone, which is good to hear. The phone sports a metal body with all glass on the front.
One would think that like all other 18:9 displays in the market, Honor View 10 will also sport a rear fingerprint scanner. However, Honor has managed to squeeze in the fingerprint scanner on the front itself, making it really slim. On the back, there are two rear cameras, which do jut out quite prominently. The antenna bands are on the top and bottom and not exactly muted.
