It has an easy to grip shape and a texture combination that feels rich in the hand.
The USB-C port is placed at the buttom while the sim tray is on the left-side; the fingerprint sensor and the edge buttons were rightly placed in their usual location except for the dual camera at the back which appears to be massively seperated.

Out of the box, you don’t get to see any menu tag indicator on the home screen, you just slide through to view and access apps.

At the top-back corner of the Huawei mate 10 pro are two weird seperated camera modules; the first have 12MP color(RGB) sensor with optical image stabilization (OIS) while the second comes with 20MP black and white (monochrome) sensor with no optical image stabilization (IOS). Both cameras suppots the new AI zoom and have the updated f/1.6 aperture.

The apperture mode on the Huawei mate 10 pro has alot going for it , it enables boken effect with the widest viewing angle, the photo shots are pretty good and the camera UI grants you access to tweak and fidget with customizations.

The Huawei mate 10 pro is a flagship that has alot going for it but it is not for everyone. This is because there are just a few missing features many would have love to see on this phone:
- 1. No headphone jack
- 2. No wireless charging
- 3. No SD card slot (128GB inbuilt storage not expandable)
However, the above missing features doesn’t seem to be much of a deal breaker to me considering the fact that there are lots of other features to compensate for. see today’s price on jumia
