Just because a phone is packed with high-end features, doesn’t mean it has to have a high-end price. The Honor View 10 ticks many of the boxes most smartphone owners want, and it does so at a sub-$500 price point.
The View 10 features Huawei’s AI-powered Kirin 970 chipset, which was previously only available on the Mate 10 and Mate 10 Pro. Of course, that Kirin 970 means you’re also getting access to the dedicated Neural Processing Unit (NPU), which allows the phone to recognize objects in the camera and automatically select the mode to best fit the subject you’re trying to shoot.
What’s more, the NPU also automatically optimizes the phone’s memory based on which apps are used most often. Of course, RAM management shouldn’t be much of a problem anyway, considering the Honor View 10 comes with 6 GB of RAM. There’s also 128 GB of storage, expandable memory up to 256 GB, as well as a hybrid dual-SIM tray.
In our full review, we were really impressed by the View 10’s dual-camera setup, which features a 16 MP f/1.8 aperture color sensor and a 20 MP f/1.8 aperture monochrome sensor. Not only can it take solid pictures, it also offers plenty of fun features like portrait and wide-aperture modes.
