First, the screens: the P10 only gets a full HD resolution on its 5.1in IPS display, but the P10 Plus revels in a 5.5in, QHD affair.
Power is provided by a 2.4GHz Kirin 960 processor R11; that’s the same as the one in the Mate 9 and it ABSOLUTELY blows most of the competition out of the water when it comes to benchmarking. More importantly, it performs excellently in the real world too.
Huawei’s also kitted it out with a load of software tweaks to eke more power out of it – for instance it uses machine learning to optimise RAM and therefore open apps more quickly, and to improve battery life.
Speaking of battery life, the P10’s 3200mAh cell is par for the course these days, but the 3750mAh one in the P10 Plus is an absolute monster, even with that 5.5in QHD screen to power. The Galaxy S7 Edge, which has the same spec screen, has to make do with ‘just’ 3600mAh.
