The Phone That Actually Made Me Change My Mind

The Phone That Actually Made Me Change My Mind


Ok, take it from a real iPhone nerd. I’ve had each and every one from the beginning, and although I intend to keep my phones, I’ve been convinced there are other alternatives as well. In collaboration with Leica, HUAWEI flew us to Frankfurt last week and this is what makes all the difference.

Huawei revealed their highly anticipated HUAWEI Mate 10 and HUAWEI Mate 10 Pro featuring the world’s first artificially intelligent chipset with dedicated Neural Network Processing Unit (NPU). With AI-based enhancements and machine learning integrated throughout, the device delivers the ultimate smartphone performance. Something that made a photography nerd and an amateur photographer (yes, the two can be combined) awestruck.

Forget about Snapseed and what not. This picture was takes with the built in editing tools. And as I’m somewhat used to posing, I had to pose both for myself and somewhat techy people around…

…as for others, which I didn’t mind at all. Even a selfie looks good with this one .

The partnership between Huawei and renowned professional camera maker and optics expert Leica Camera grows even stronger with the HUAWEI Mate 10. Consisting of 20-megapixel mono and 12-megapixel RGB dual sensors, the New Leica Dual Camera results in more detailed and better quality images than ever before. Zero shutter lag, thanks to Huawei’s brand new Dual ISP on the Kirin 970 Chipset, Optical Image Stabilization (OIS), which keeps images and videos sharp and focused, and dual lenses with the world’s largest aperture of f/1.6 put the capability for professional photographs into the hands of the everyday user. If you ask me, that sounds all nice, but the important thing is that it takes pro pictures without any effort to it!

Behaviour-driven deep learning ensures the HUAWEI Mate 10 Series offers the world’s fastest smartphone experience throughout the day and the device’s lifetime, and the combination of the 4000mAh battery and smart power-saving technology means your phone has your back when you need it to. Should the handset need a little more juice, there is no need to be chained to an outlet for hours on end – HUAWEI SuperCharge gets you up and running in no time at all. A single, safe, 20 minute charge can supply a whole day’s power. Say what, iPhone?

For those looking for a phone that performs as well as it looks and feels, the HUAWEI Mate 10 Series is the ultimate all-rounder. Whether it’s being used on the go, taking holiday snaps or for business, the AI-powered device is more than just a smartphone. Delivering ultimate performance with its speed and efficiency, the new Mate 10 Series marks the start of the era of the intelligent machine.

    Dear ( My) Tommy,
    Wow !!!! HUAWEI Mate 10 series is absolutely what I need. First of all the fact that you can take such beautifully captured images and that the editing tool is right there just amazes me. I feel that I’ve tried so many cameras and editing apps and even phones that claim to take such great quality pictures but really it’s not effortless and actually not even at all easy for me. Then seeing these pictures you took is the proof. I love the one especially with you in the hat and a little bit of hair sticking out. Seriously belongs in a magazine!
    Thank you so much for writing this just in time for me to attempt holiday pictures!
    Your Jenny

    I don’t really know much about technology but I could tell that the quality of the photos were amazing! I’ve never heard of Huawei phones before but I’m definitely going to look into it now. The tech seems very ahead of the other phones out there!

    That’s so cool to be able to take such high quality photos from just our phones! Personally never owned this brand before, and it’s not big here in Australia but it’s awesome to see what international brands are doing in other markets! So keen to see this firsthand xx

    I never thought anything can even make me think of parting from my iPhone but then you mentioned Leica and their contribution to this smartphone and now I’m rethinking my stance!! I’ve been wanting a Leica camera in forever but sadly can’t really afford it at the mo. I am checking this phone out asap!

    It’s always nice to hear of alternatives to the iPhone just in case and the HUAWEI Mate 10 series sounds amazing. The photo quality is incredible and I love that it can be charged so fast! I haven’t actually heard of this brand before at all so thank you for introducing me to it. This is a great gift idea too and I will have to check it out. xoxo, Christine

    I can’t believe I have never heard about the HUAWEI Mate 10, and after reading your post I realized that it’s a great option to try. Your images are very good and lt has so many features for all the bloggers out there, including myself hahaha. I love Apple and I can’t literally live without my Iphone, but It’s great to know about such a good brand an option like this one.
    Thanks for sharing my friend!

    Wow Huawei takes amazing photos!!! I’m also an iphone nerd, I have been using iphone since when it first came out. It’s gonna take a lot for me to switch to another phone too. However, I do struggle a lot with iphone’s battery issues. Every time I go out have a long day, I have to bring a battery pack with me, and it takes so much space in my going out purses. It’s amazing how Huawei takes only 20 mins to charge and it would last a whole day! It’s would be a lifetime changing experience for me too!! I will definitely look into this phone.

    xx, Jessie

    I don’t keep up to date with the newest tech so it’s definitely nice to come hear and learn about HUAWEI Mate 10 series. I do have all apple products just because of ease of use. The photo quality is incredible and that there are but in editing features! Fast charge is absolutely a plus too! I’ve never heard of this before so I thank you for the introduction! I’m definitely headed to check it out now!

    I’ve heard so many things of HUAWEI, and now when they’ve partnered with Leica, the camera must be fantastic. I love the quality of the Leica’s cameras, it’s probably one of the best in the world. So no wonder for me, if someday HUAWEI will replace iPhone on the market.

    Cheers, Eliza |

    You remind me of me when it comes to getting the NEW iPhone every time it comes out. The Huawei phone takes amazing pictures too, it’s amazing how technology changes every few months.

    I have to be honest, I use my phone more for pictures and social media than for anything else so you totally got my attention with those shots, such great depth to them! I’ll definitely have to check out a Huawei.

    Wow I didn’t know the Huawei had all those features!
    I love my DSLR but I hate lugging it around as it’s so heavy and cumbersome
    It would be so nice to have a phone that takes really clear pictures and iPhones are notorious for their short battery life so any phone with longer battery life would be a godsend for me.
    I’m sold!

    It’s times like these i realize iPhones haven’t come along that far. That’s so crazy this was all taken on the phone. Literally so wild. Something to consider now that I’m due for an upgrade

    Wow the HUAWEI Mate 10 sounds amazing! I am a huge fan of Leica cameras, so I definitely have to look into this. 20-megapixel mono and 12-megapixel RGB dual sensors is next level! I’m an iPhone girl, but may have to finally make the switch.

    Thank you for sharing!

    I don’t know if i could ever switch away rom having an iPhone. Its so convenient as both my desktop and laptop also are apple products and they all sync together. Even with all these amazing features, theres the convenience that stops me from getting anything else.

    This is so funny we are like living the same things.. on my Eurotrip I was in Paris and one of my friend he is the manager director of Huawei in France and he was totally trying to sell me this new phone because I’m iPhone to death. I have to say after what he show it what it does and the features looks pretty cool and awesome. The pictures turn out very cool actually- I’m considering if I should change or not – reading your post help me to convince my self more lol

    The pictures on that phone are amazing! I’m not surprised since it has a Leica lens, but very impressed with the quality, the definition and focus is fantastic!

    Maybe something to put on my Christmas list?
