Me & My Huawei P10+ 08: One-Week Verdict

(1) the home button

which was pretty redundant

when i first got the phone

since i was always using the

three on-screen buttons

which consists of

-back – home – recent apps

Huawei P10 Plus 3 buttons

*

when i was about to be

quite used to the 3 buttons

and the redundant home button

*

they was a system update yesterday

suddenly the 3 buttons were gone

all three functions are being

replaced by the home button

*

gosh i just got used to

living without a home button

*

and so it’s a totally opposite situation

i am trying to learn to

adapt to the life without

the 3 on-screen buttons

and rely solely on the home button

just like good old iOS

*

wait…

it’s a best of both world situation

when i realize that

i actually get to choose

whichever way i want to

and now i would say that

i shall go for virtual navigation bar

i.e. the 3 on-screen buttons

oh wait you can even

choose a 4-button bar

which consists of shortcut menu

but for the time being

i am good with the 3-button bar

(2) the built-in music player

is pretty good

well since it’s quite a simple app

the background colour within a playlist

changes according to the album cover

so is the background on lock screen

(3) the earphone

the earphones work fine

and thank goodness it’s

earbud instead of in-ear

*

and after the recent system update

i was reminded that

it also allows song skipping

on the volume control key

it works similarly as Apple’s

no i mean the previous non-wireless

*

(4) App purchase

bought my very first app

it’s to upgrade a dictionary app

to get rid of the ad which

occupies the whole screen

and lasts about 5 secs

*

so this is officially

my first app purchase

good thing that they allow

billing via your telco

iOS is not offering the same

not that i aware of

*

so i can actually pay really fast

and i can get rid of

the large amount of

credit i have accumulated

since i am really a light user

when it comes to phone service

*

(5) Issues so far?

my Hiboard

similar to the widget screen on iOS

is not loading

all i have is app suggestion

i wish i can load the weather here

(5) Facebook app

is kinda unstable

it force exits sometimes

after scrolling for not really

that long time

*

and when you are scrolling through

and stop to read a certain post

instead of stopping at

right where you stop scrolling

*

it tends to jerk

and stops a bit lower

than your original position

to display the search bar on top

*

not a major issue

but it’s kinda unsmooth

so for the time being

i prefer browsing Facebook

on Chrome instead on app

*

the main point i wanna share

for this post is all about

ebook reader and built-in dictionary

since i was struggling to find one

which is close to iBooks

*

but it turned out to be

quite a long discussion

that i decided to

compile it as a

fresh post on its own

*
