The View 10 comes with dual camera setup on the back, in the camera app you get wide aperture and portrait mode options. Camera quality is excellent and like on other Honor smartphones you get a lot of profession modes that captures great shots. The bokeh effects are pretty good.

Selfie also looks too good, especially with the portrait mode. This handset can shoot 4K videos, there is no stabilization option on this handset. Do check the samples and the video sample in video review.

Camera Rating : 4.6 out of 5

Other features

The finger print sensor on the front is pretty fast and accurate. I did not find any issues with networks. Face unlock feature for now is not enabled but I will soon get it via OTA update and will cover that soon.

Face recognition is enabled but you cannot unlock the phone. Though some AI features are working for example when you have registered your face and you get notification, you will see the notification, but  others cannot.

The AI feature is pretty interesting, it monitors your usage pattern and customizes the UI experience as per your need.
