Where can you buy the new Honor 10 in the UK?

Monday, May 21st 2018 by Oprah Flash

Want a phone that looks like the iPhone X but for a third of the price? That’s where the Honor 10 comes in.

The latest Honor phone has hit shelves in the UK and you can now buy it SIM-free on Honor’s own website for £399 or get a pay-monthly deal from Three or Carphone Warehouse.

The Honor 10 is the manufacturer’s flagship handset for 2018 and features some beefy tech such as 128GB of storage, a 24MP front camera and fast 970 Kirin processor. With all that it's packing under its hood, the Honor 10 could comfortably compete with other flagship phones such as the Samsung Galaxy S9 or OnePlus 6, but the £399 price tag puts in company with mid-range phones.

Honor is a smartphone brand owned by the Huawei Group. Speaking about the mindset behind the phone, George Zhao, president of Honor, said: "We want to co-create a new lifestyle with young people worldwide. We listen to them, bounce ideas around with them, and cheer for them. They are our inspiration."

High-quality tech for £399

Since the release of the iPhone X, in November last year, the screen notch has become a trend for new phones in 2018. The Honor 10 is no different, and its 5.84-inch FullView FHD screen features a notch with an 86% screen-to-body ratio.

Don’t worry about being annoyed by it though, as there is in-built software that allows you to hid it. Running on the most up-to-date Android and Emui operating system, the phone has 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The Kirin 970 is the same processor that you’ll find in the Huawei P20 Pro.

Tech and mobile reviewer, Safwan Ahmedmia has described the phone as "colourful, stylish and affordable". The Phantom Aurora Glass back is certainly very eye-catching featuring a mirror glass reflective design.

Bloggers and social media enthusiasts will appreciate the chance to up their selfie game with the 24MP front camera and dual 24MP/16MP rear camera.

Just like most of the newer phones on the market, the Honor 10 has facial recognition technology. The ultrasonic fingerprint sensor sits under the glass screen so is flush with the display, which allows you to use it with wet hands.

Apart from the snazzy mirror glass design and the 24MP selfie camera, another main selling point for the phone is its powerful battery. The 3,400 mAh battery doesn’t quite match up to the 4,000mAh battery you’ll find in the Huawei P20 Pro, but it’s still better than some of its other competitors and can last you a day without the need to recharge it.

When the charge does start to run low, there’s some handy power-savvy technology to keep the phone awake just that bit longer.

Free headphones worth £69 from Three

You may also be happy to hear that the headphone jack is back, so no adapters needed. This is particularly useful at the moment as Three is giving away a free set of headphones with its pay-monthly deals.

You can get the Phantom Blue or Glacier Grey versions from Three with 128GB of internal storage.

The tariffs on offer are pretty reasonable considering the high spec of the phone. On an Advanced Plan with 4GB of data and all-you-and-eat minutes, Three is charging £31 a month and no upfront cost. As part of this you can use your data allowance as a personal hotspot and take the phone on holiday with you in 71 destinations – and use your allowance – without being charged extra.

For an Advanced Plan with Three’s famous Go Binge feature, you’ll need a plan that offers 12GB or above. The 12GB tariff cost £36 a month and nothing upfront. Go Binge gives you a separate unlimited data allowance, exclusively for Snapchat, Netflix, TV Player, Apple Music, Deezer and Soundcloud.
