The Huawei P10 Plus is a continuation of the wonderful P10. The predecessor has gotten rave reviews from Android phone enthusiasts. Although they have a few things in common, there are a few basic differences that you need to know.
Design-wise, it is basically the P10 wrapped in a larger chassis. Yes, the bezel ratio remains the same. This also applies to the rear design. As for the buttons, you will feel familiar because the original arrangement is maintained. The new device still has different dimensions, though. It grows in length and width. Meanwhile, the thickness doesn’t change. This is perfect for those who are into larger Android phones.
Other differentiating factors include the shape of the fingerprint sensor, the placement of volume rockers, and 3.5mm audio jack. The body is constructed out of metal. It also adopts a unibody design, making it look sleek and neat. The rounded corners also add to its appeal. Another interesting fact is that the Huawei P10 Plus is available in 7 colors. When many phones are sold in limited colors, this really offers so many choices to buyers.
As the phone gets larger, so does the screen. It was a 5-inch 1080p touchscreen before. The new Huawei P10 Plus has a 5.5 inch with a 2k resolution. Is there any difference? Yes, while both displays are stunning, the P10 Plus takes clarity to the next level. It is understandable considering the larger screen is followed by an increase in resolution. Text becomes easier to read and pictures also look sharper.
High-quality cameras can easily be found on flagships. Thankfully, the Huawei P10 Plus seems to take this aspect seriously. Aside from utilizing a dual camera setup which consists of a 20MP monochrome sensor and a 12MP RGB sensor, it also takes advantage of Leica technology. This combination turns the phone into a powerful camera. It is capable of producing high-quality shots with SLR-style effects. Video recording also feels smooth thanks to the Optical Image Stabilization. With all the great features, this phone is perfect to capture your personal moments.

The Huawei P10 Plus is powered by the Hisilicon Kirin 960 processor. It performs very well and can be compared to others in its price range. There is enough power to do multitasking. Whether you are into streaming or use a phone solely for business, this processor is reliable. There is also 128GB of storage onboard. This can be expanded using a MicroSD. The RAM is spacious, it amounts to 6GB. There is no need to worry about apps burdening the system because the RAM can handle them well.
The phone also features fast-charging, but it lacks the wireless option. It is not a big deal because the battery can reach a full charge within an hour. We think you’d be surprised by the audio quality. It makes sense because the new device comes with stereo speakers instead of mono like that on the older model. This results in clear and crisp audio. Meanwhile, a fingerprint sensor can still be seen. While it is responsive, you may not be a fan of front-mounted sensors like this one. Some people prefer this feature on the back.
