Please find the below Antutu benchmark score comparision which is the widely used it to compare the device’s performance , speed and much more.
Please find the below Geekbench single core and multi core benchmark score and comparison.
- Kirin 930 processor is the latest of it’s kind even the flagship killer Huawei P20 sports the same processor
- Good camera with AI assistance and supports portrait mode
- Gorilla glass protection
What could be better:
- Honor ditched micro SD card slot, but however with 128 GB on board we really do not need another memory card
- Phone is slippery in hand and the rear side is easily scratchable, you definitely need a case for this .
Though most of the flagship devices prefer Snapdragon chipsets, Manufacturers like Samsung and Huawei prefers their own chipset which give then an extra advantage in pricing. Samsung’s Exynos and Kirin are equally good as Snapdragon so performance would not be a concern on these.
When the real competitor Oneplus 5T is no more in stock, we do feel that the device is worth the price as we do not have much options of flagship deices in 30k Range. As you can see in the benchmark comparisons, Honor 10 has got almost same score of Oneplus 5T except a slight difference.
If you are availing 3000 cashback on AXIS Cards and extra exchange discount, this device is really a great one to have with it’s stunning look, advanced AI features. If you are ready to spend a little extra , we’d recommend you to wait for oneplus 6 launch :)
