The device costs Rs 29,999 in India for the 6GB RAM and 128GB storage variant. The Honor View 10 has a bold new elegant design promising the right mix of performance and durability. After spending some time with the View 10, here are our initial impressions.
What’s with the look?
The Honor View 10 features a simplistic design language yet appears distinct. It’s a well-built smartphone with a premium metal finish. The View 10 comes with a 5.99-inch Full HD+ (2160x1080 pixels) display with 18:9 aspect ratio. Huawei has successfully managed to give an almost bezel-less look with the front of the device mostly showcasing the screen. The fingerprint scanner is located seamlessly in the front. The View 10 uniquely highlights the dual-lens setup of the device at the back. Both the lens are individually marked and protrudes slightly which may not be everyone’s favourite. Overall, the Honor View 10 looks great but the protrusion due to the lens at the back makes it a bit wobbly.
