Huawei Mate Pro 10 surpasses Apple’s iPhone as world’s best seller

Font Size:

A new Chinese smartphone has just overtaken Apple as the world’s best-selling smartphone and it’s not too hard to see why.

The Huawei Mate 10 Pro has one of the best cameras in the market, an OLED display, superfast operating system, top of the line hardware and mouth-watering design.

It’s little wonder it has taken on the big guns and won.

The Huawei screen is 6 inches with a 2160×1080 pixel resolution that takes up the entire face of the phone.

It’s got 128GB of storage, 6GB of RAM, a scratch-resistant glass back, fingerprint scanner, USB-C charging port, a powerful single speaker and runs on Android software.

It’s water resistant and can be submerged in 1.5m of water for up to 30 minutes.

But the real seller for this phone is the camera – a collaboration with industry leading lens company Leica.

For anyone who knows their cameras, Leica lenses are superb, especially sharp and easily the nicest lens for shooting in black and white.

And this smartphone camera is awesome, with a 12MP sensor for shooting colour and a 20MP sensor for shooting black and white and great exposure in both bright and low light situations.

And that’s just the back camera. The front camera is a wide-angle 8MP beastie perfect for shooting super sharp solo and group selfies.

Oh, and it also has a ‘beauty mode’, which smooths out wrinkles and imperfections.

And for anyone sick of iPhone’s flimsy battery life, Huawei claims its battery will last for up to two days between charges.

The Huawei Mate 10 Pro retails for around $A1099 – around the same price as an iPhone 8 but with a much larger screen, better battery life and camera.

    I bought a mobile phone (to use just as a mobile phone). It was released onto the market last year. Guess what? Ya can’t even buy a replacement battery …. the phone manufacturer tells me to contact Optus, and Optus tells me to contact the phone manufacturer (neither can tell me where I can get a battery in Australia). Even on the internet, the only place I can find that sells these batteries is in Brazil, and you must buy in huge bulk.

    I suspect they do stuff like this in order to force customers to regularly buy new phones.

    Let’s bring back normal phones (landline), life was sooooooooo much easier back then.

      Darn right Jim, — this NBN has taken us back 100 years — no power no phone and internet — we should send the Government a bill for the new modem /and VoIP phone and mobile — of which there was no need b4

      Did you try EBay Jim? I’d be interested to know what phone you got and where from? If you got it via optus then normally one would expect that they would stock, or at least get, a new battery.
      Usually, if you type the battery details onto EBay you will find a replacement, might be under another brand name/number etc.
