Are you a lover of big screens? If so, Honor Note 10 is the right choice for you! With a 6.95-inch display, the Honor Note 10 is indeed bigger than the classic phablet. However, thanks to the minimalistic bezels, it doesn’t look like it.
The Honor Note 10 price in India can be around Rs 27,990, only if it is launched in the Indian market. The phone comes in four colour options – Black, Blue, Midnight Black, and Phantom Blue.
The build quality of Honor Note 10 is premium, and the phone feels sturdy to hold. While its sheer size maybe a little too big for some people, a bigger phone means a bigger screen space. Plus, the fact that the Honor Note 10 comes without a notch and minimalistic bezels allow for immersive viewing. The glass front and back impart to it a stylish look with n aluminium frame. On the rear panel, you have the dual-camera module aligned vertically on the top left corner. The camera module slightly protrudes from the frame. The fingerprint sensor rests in the top middle portion of the back panel. However, the glossy back makes the phone a fingerprint and grease magnet.
The Honor Note 10 features a huge 6.95-inch AMOLED screen with an FHD+ resolution of 1080 x 2220 pixels. It has a pixel density of 355 PPI and an 18.5:9 aspect ratio. The screen is undoubtedly one of the biggest USPs of the Honor Note 10. Apart from excellent colour reproduction, brightness and contrast levels, and viewing angles, the best part is that it comes with support for HDR10 content. There’s no notch, and it is practically bezel-less.
The Honor Note 10 comes with a HiSilicon Kirin 970 processor which delivers top-notch performance. Paired with the 6GB RAM/8GB RAM, the processor runs seamlessly and can handle any task you throw at it. While performing everyday tasks like calling, texting, streaming music, browsing, etc., is a breeze, gaming is also a pleasant experience on the Honor Note 10.
The Honor Note 10 runs on Android 8.1 Oreo with EMUI 8.2 on top, and for a greater part, the software is very user-friendly
The Honor Note 10 features a dual-camera setup – a 16 MP (f/1.8) primary sensor paired with 24 MP (B/W, f/1.8). Both have Phase Detection Auto Focus. Apart from this, the camera app is loaded with many other useful features like Bokeh Effect, 2x Zoom, Monochrome, Digital Zoom, Auto Flash, Face detection, Touch to focus, Exposure Compensation, and ISO control, among other things. In well-lit settings, the camera can capture some fantastic shots. The captured images look crisp and vivid while packing in a lot of detail. The colour accuracy is also great.
The Honor Note 10 has a 5000mAh battery which is a thoughtful addition considering the size and hardware specs. However, you must know that the high-resolution display drains a lot of the battery power. Also, if you use the Turbo mode while playing games, a lot of battery gets drained. Thanks to the fast-charging support though, the battery gets charged up pretty soon.
The Honor Note 10 feels like a phone made for big-screen lovers. However, with a big screen, it also packs in a massive battery, decent cameras, and a powerful processor that promises a glitch-free performance day-in and day-out. So, if you are looking for a mid-range Android with all these specs, Honor Note 10 is the way to go.
