Honor View 10 – Battery life
As for battery life, the 3750mAh battery does a commendable job at getting the View 10 through a full day with some battery to spare – lighter users might even find it even lasts into the second day without too much fuss.
Be aware that gaming will sap the energy out of it much quicker than anything else though, so you’ll want to go steady on too many games of Asphalt 8 on the way to work if you want the charge to last until the afternoon.
Thankfully, Honor’s SuperCharge tech via its USB-C port is at hand if you do get caught short, providing up to 50% of battery charge in 30 minutes.
Why buy the Honor View 10?
While £400 isn’t exactly pocket change for spending on a phone, with flagship handsets creeping ever closer to the £1000 mark, the Honor View 10 represents a considerable saving for those who can’t afford the very best – or those who just aren’t that bothered about having it.
It gets a whole lot right at this price too. Its lightning-fast performance, innovative features, decent battery life and premium design certainly tick plenty of the must-haves, with its slightly inconsistent camera being one of its only let downs.
It’s here that the OnePlus 5T starts to overtake the View 10, with its AMOLED screen also pipping Honor’s effort for out-and-out quality. Some might decide that justifies the £50 premium that currently separates them.
However, if it’s storage you need, the 128GB on the View 10 is double that of the cheapest OnePlus 5T, plus has the flexibility of a microSD card slot as well.
The View 10 is proof that Honor’s persistence in the mid-range market is paying off – this is one of its best handsets yet.
