Honor 10 Work Performance, Battery Life + Recharging Speed

Work Performance – PCMark

We tested the Honor 10’s performance using PCMark, which simulates work applications like web browing, playing video, writing text and editing photos.

The Kirin 970 powering the Honor 10 (Price Check) is a true flagship SoC. Look at how fast it was at Work 2.0, beating the Samsung Galaxy S9 (Price Check) by 26%, and Galaxy S9+ (Price Check) by 34%.


Battery Life – PCMark

We then tested the Honor 10′ battery performance using PCMark. It basically ran the PCMark work tests until its battery capacity dropped to 20%.

The Honor 10 (Price Check) has a slightly smaller 3,400 mAh battery than the 3,500 mAh battery of the Samsung Galaxy S9+ (Price Check). It managed to last just under 9 hours in this stress test.


Battery Recharging Performance

The Honor 10 (Price Check) comes with a Huawei SuperCharge fast charger with a power output of 22.5 W. Take a look at how fast it recharged its 3,400 mAh battery.

Honor 10 battery recharging speed

It took the Honor 10 (Price Check) about 107 minutes (1 hour 47 minutes) to recharge its battery from 20% to 100%. This is 11.5 minutes longer than Samsung Galaxy S9+ (Price Check) with its 18 W fast charger.

This gives it a rather poor battery life : recharging ratio of 5:1, even with a high-powered fast charger. Honor really needs to look into addressing this issue.
