    I'm a tad disappointed or at least not blown away by the mate 10. As a mate 9 user I guess I expected more. The pro (USA) seems tiny compared to the note 8 and it seems the pro is our only choice.

    Now my choice. Note 8 v30 or pixel xl and of course mate 10.

    I opted for the Pixel 2 XL, but I'm having a little buyers remorse and thinking I should have gone with the V30. Of course waiting for the V30 to price drop. And I may yet get one.

    What you COULD do is just hang loose with the Mate 9 for a while, and wait for the 10 Pro to come out, and/or for the holidays to get closer and the holiday sales begin!

    I agree. It's a bit underwhelming given the price point. I'd hang on to the mate 9 and wait for the sales as well. If I remember correctly huawei/honor had some killer deals around Black Friday.

    yes i will most likely be waiting to see what deals come out. black friday is only a month away. i am not willing to pay full retail for it.

    It'll be interesting to see what they do with the Mate 9 as well. It'd be nice to see another price cut for that.

    Oh most definitely. The mate 9 at a reduced price would be tempting to those who don't need the absolute newest... Especially now that the mate 10 is coming in at a significantly higher price tag

    Could you imagine a $50 price cut!? Then around Black Friday another $50 off bringing the total to $350! Now that's a deal!

    That would be pretty slick. Should be great for most people who don't necessarily need the absolute greatest

    If the camera is superb, it's good enough. Otherwise, it's too expensive for a phone that is not well known in the U.S. (speaking strictly about the U.S. market).

    I watched a few comparison videos yesterday where the Mate 10 Pro took on the Mate 9 and the Note 8. The Mate 10 did a bit better than the Mate 9 in lowlight as expected but the Mate 9 actually beat it in quite a few scenarios. It was on preproduction software however so hopefully that'll be improved before release otherwise I'll be a little disappointed. Not because it's bad but just because I was expecting really big things this year

    Yep Note 8 overall has better camera, video the Note 8 is the clear winner, Huawei should have used OIS on 4k too.

    I decided to hold off and see how it goes, so far the M10 is the only phone I'll buy, 6gb

    If it doesn't change, it makes the Mate 9 a steal, especially if it drops in price for the holidays.

    I'm thinking the same thing. I'd even love to find a Mate 9 Pro to import that won't break the bank

    Dxomark just rated the overall phone camera a 97 point. 100 for still picture which beats the Pixel 2 by one point, 99 in still pictures, you guys won't be disappointed on the camera.

    Just cause it's not well known in the states, doesnt mean they should devalue their products. I'm sure it'll be cheaper once they announce the US price point. US usually gets nearly all the phones cheaper than other countries.

    100 for photography. I'll take that! I rarely ever shoot video so the overall score means little to me personally

    I don't think it's devaluing their brand. We just want them to work their pricing magic like they did with the Mate 9. It's going to be an uphill battle for them if they are priced similar to Samsung and Google. Yes, hopefully when it's released State side they'll adjust the price to better compete with the big guys.

    I wouldn't believe their overall score. But they're break down by several sub categories that are pretty legit.

    But, in a market where they are relatively unknown, they need something to get attention (and specs alone won't do it). Price is something that speaks to a multitude of people. I like Huawei's products and think they're reliable and a good value. But I know very few people in the U.S. that are aware of who they are. Samsung didn't develop the great following they have here by coming into the market with $1000 phones.
    But my original point was that, if the camera turned out to be less than stellar, the price would limit sales. With a stellar camera, they have a chance. But I still think it's a stiff challenge up against the recent releases of the Pixel 2, the Note 8 and the LG V30 which are well known here. I guess we'll see.

    It's a great camera... But also on par with the competition, not really beating them.

    Agreed. Hopefully they have a surprise or two for the US (pricewise)when it's finally released.

    Thing thing that irritates me the most is availability. I wanted to get the PXL2 but I have a crap record with Syncony bank..so no credit for me there. I'm picking up a TMO V30 in the next couple of weeks, but the Mate 10 really nails everything for me. Loving my Mate9 while my S8 is sitting in my drawer collecting dust. If Amazon carries the M10 I'll gladly make the 5 payments on it. Hopefully carriers pick it up though. TMO especially.
