Huawei's Mate 10 Pro isn't perfect, but it sure is one heck of a phone that should absolutely be on your shortlist.

2017 has been a phenomenal year for smartphones. The Pixel 2, Galaxy S8, LG V30, and HTC U11 are all prime examples of this, but one phone that's recently proven itself to be the best around for tremendous battery life is the Mate 10 Pro.

The Huawei Mate 10 Pro is the successor to last year's awesome Mate 9, and along with its wild stamina, the Mate 10 Pro also manages to offer a rock solid camera package, gorgeous design, and snappy performance. It isn't a perfect phone, but it's one that's definitely worth considering if you're in the market for a new, big handset.

Here's what some of our forum users have had to say about it so far.

Great to hear about a great battery life. Not sure why you're having issues with swiping down the notifications. But if the fps helps them great!
