Honor View 10 review: hands-on

Honor View 10 review: hands-on

Chinese telecom giant Huawei's sub-brand Honor is all set to globally launch View 10 smartphone on January 8 next year including in India for 499 euros, the company's Global President George Zhao revealed here on Tuesday.

Just like the Mate 10 Pro, the Honor camera relies heavily on AI to identify what you're taking a picture of, and adjust the image to take the best quality possible.

Honor says that the V10 will be released in the USA, as well as some other major markets like United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, and Spain on January 8, 2018. It will be available in color options of Blue, Black, and Gold. Cameras are the major difference between the Honor 7X and Honor 9i as the latter comes with dual selfie cameras.

SIM-free iPhone X now available from Apple in the US
As 9to5Mac reported yesterday, Apple is now offering the option to buy the tenth-anniversary handset without a carrier. You can finally buy an iPhone X unlocked and without a SIM card in the United States.

The premium metal unibody design with the all-new 18:9 aspect ratio display with 2160x1080p pixels dense display and the dual rear-facing camera are the three main selling points of the Honor 7x. The device still falls back on its fingerprint sensor for secure app activity like banking. It has 4 x 2.4 GHz A73+ 4 x 1.8 GHz A53 10nm processor + i7 co-processor.

Honor has taken the wraps off two new phones -the Honor View 10 and Honor 7X in Europe.

The phone supports expandable storage and features a USB-C and 3.5mm headphone jack. The View 10 will also get an exclusive Face Unlock feature, which looks similar to the OnePlus 5T's implementation as it simply relies on a standard front-facing camera, can not see in 3D, and is not secure enough to be used to authenticate payments. It supports 4G VoLTE, WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1 LE and GPS / GLONASS.

Flu season coming earlier than expected in Ohio
Health experts look to Australia to measure the effectiveness of the vaccine and the severity of the flu headed our way. This year, the onslaught of a particularly deadly strain of the flu virus may lead to a harsher flu season than usual.

Rounding out the Honor View 10's hardware is a 3,750mAh battery, which is smaller than the 4000mAh battery found in the Mate 10 series. The View 10 runs on Android 8.0 operating system with EMUI 8.0. The phone has a dual camera with rear ones housing a 20MP and 16MP sensors.

The Honor View 10 price has been set at Euro 499 (roughly Rs. 38,000) and GBP 449 (roughly Rs. 38,900).

The 4GB Honor 7X will be available for purchase from December 7, noon onwards, in India via flash sales exclusively on Amazon.

Apple Pay Cash Missing from iOS 11.2 but Coming this Week
New patches bring a bunch of fixes and features, but unfortunately they can also introduce more problems than they fix. This new feature lets iOS users do in iMessage what Venmo has done for years - send money through an app.

The 2.5D glass face flows seamlessly into the aluminium chassis. The Honor View10 comes powered by the top-tier Kirin 970 SoC mated to 6GB of RAM. It's hard to judge low-light performance in just a few minutes in a demo area, but I feel confident in saying the View 10's camera is at least competent, this phone and stands a good chance of outperforming the 5T in darker conditions.
