There is no doubt that Honor V10 has good performance and it is a very worthwhile phone to buy. But before the purchase, we have a question: how about its workmanship? Here we disassemble an Honor V10 to explore its internal structure and workmanship.
Teardown is what we do! Follow us on Facebook for the latest repair news.
Because fingerprint reader is designed on the front, the phone’s back case can be separated from phone body successfully. There are four slim sealing strips on the smartphone’s verge to avoid the bad connection between body and back case.
The Honor V9’s back case has been integrated with lots of components, and only its screen is dependent. But the Honor V10 has the opposite design. Its back case hasn’t been integrated with any component.
Now, look at the motherboard area. The V10’s motherboard has the high space utilization, which can be comparable with the Huawei Mate 10. All wire connectors have been fixed by the metal cover to avoid malfunction of come functional components which is resulted from disconnected connectors.
Look at the phone’s front part. After removing the motherboard, components at the bottom can be seen. Earphone has been placed on the top, while the light distance sensor is designed in the internal. Electronic shock is connected to the motherboard, which is the only part that can be seen. Besides, the buttons on two sides are also connected to electronic shock.
Look at motherboard’s back part. The gap between shield cover and card slot seems to be slightly big. Although its space utilization is lower than motherboard’s front part, it is good to design motherboard in such a small size. We can see the shield is covered by thermal silicone.
Now, let’s separate camera. The first metal cover on camera’s connector has been removed, and two covers are connected with the base by the metal clip. In this way, it can help decrease motherboard’s area.
After erasing the conductive silicone on the surface, we can see 4GB of RAM chip below. It is obvious that Kirin 970 processor is sealed under the chip. The 64GB of ROM chip and the RAM chip is provided by Samsung.
Only a large shield cover on the front of the motherboard can be removed. The components under the cover have been densely arranged. The cooling design is not excellent, and no conductive material which can help dissipate is found. Most chips are made by Huawei, and they have optimized on power consumption and heating control.
Although the Honor V10 adopts lots of double-side taps on battery, we finally successfully separate the battery. The data on its surface shows that the battery’s typical capacity is 3,750mAh, 14.33Wh and its rated voltage is 3.82V. Most Android phones’ rated voltage is 3.85V, but the V10’s rated voltage will expand battery’s life.
Powered by Kirin 970 processor, undoubtedly the Honor V10 can bring good performance. After the teardown, we find the V10 has an excellent shatter-resistant function, and its connectors have been well protected. Besides, the phone has high space utilization.
In general, the Honor V10 has excellent space utilization performance and good workmanship. The phone has an excellent sealing capability and good shatter-resistant performance.
