Hands-on with the Honor View10

The Honor View10 isn't a new product, but the firm felt it necessary to once again announce it at CES, as its impending release date is soon approaching. While it is now available in select markets as of January 8, the United States is not one of those markets, so it is a good thing that we got to take a quick look at the device during CES.

When it comes down to it, the View10 feels quite comfortable in hand and is incredibly similar in feel to the LG V30. Despite it being made of metal and glass, what is perhaps surprising is that it felt incredibly light. The front houses a 5.99-inch 18:9 display that looks crisp despite its resolution being 1080p. Even with the increased display real estate, Honor still managed to squeeze in the fingerprint reader on the front, placing it on the lower bezel area. This is different from other manufacturers approaches, where the fingerprint reader is normally relocated to the rear if the handset has slim bezels on the front.

The rear houses dual camera sensors with a 20MP and 16MP setup. The rear does look a little devoid with its plain metallic back but it still felt comfortable when being held. Overall, this seems like a solid device, offering top-end specifications for a fair price. Although it isn't available in the U.S. as of yet, when prices are converted, it sits at around 470 USD. Honor has stated that the View10 will be available in the U.S. sometime in Q1 2018.
