The charging, thanks to added accessories: the USB-microUSB cable and a low-voltage, fast charger (and the Huawei SuperCharge function) takes around an 1.5 hours. In a half an hour we have a half of the battery charged, after that the charging speed is slightly lower. Using a different cable and/or other charger prolongs the time of charging. The battery itself has a 32000 mAh capacity and it offers maybe not weak, but definitely unimpressive lifespans. With my typical usage that I could describe as an average, it did not exceed one day of work (around 12 hours of working, the SoT was around 3 hours and 15 minutes). At the evening it was left with some energy, maybe few percent. With an economical usage P10 can achieve two days of work, but with a seldom usage of camera and games and with a limited usage of the mobile internet.
And here is partial data from measurements and benchmarks:
- the lifespan with the display on (playing videos from YouTube, active Wi-Fi module, 50% brightness) – 9 hours;
- PC Mark - Battery Work 2.0 benchmark - 8 hours and 13 minutes;
- 8 hours in the standby mode – 4% battery lost;
- half an hour of playing Real Racing 3 - 13% battery lost;
- an hour of video streaming through Wi-Fi - 13% lost;
- half an hour of using the navigation from Google Maps - 7% lost;
- an hour of streaming videos - 13% lost.
Is it worth betting on Huawei P10? Without a doubt the smartphone connects a great craftsmanship with a strong specification and nice software capabilities, it will not let us down when it comes to photography and communication options. And it is cheaper than other flagships, that have launched in this year so far. But will it reach to potential buyers through the marketing noise generated by LG G6, the newest Sony XZ Premium or Samsung Galaxy S8 that will soon be presented? In these flagships there is something extra, something distinguishable, while Huawei chose to enhance everything, perfected housing details, used an ingenious system and enhanced cameras capabilities. And models from the Mate 9 series will compete with the competition mentioned before.
P10 is not the biggest revolution when it comes to last year’s flagship, and what it offers is mostly known from the Mate 9 model – so if you have P9 or Mate 9 and you are pleased with these models, P10 will not change your impressions (switching to P10 Plus could be more beneficial, the phablet has stereo speakers, a brighter lens, bigger display and a more powerful specification). But in the case of those who are hesitant whether to buy Huawei P10 or not – this is definitely a model that will not fail you.
