How to Transfer Messages, Music, Contacts, Apps to Huawei P10/P10 Plus

HUAWEI P10 sets an industry benchmark for style and craftsmanship with the first hyper diamond-cut finishing on a smartphone, which adds strength and colour. Finishes also available in high gloss and sandblast. ------ Huawei

Huawei just announced its new flagship smartphones Huawei P10 and P10 plus in March. I guess many of you just can not wait to know more about them. The P10 is the successor to Huawei’s P9 flagship, which in my mind was the firm’s finest handset to date. It continues the company’s push to dominate the camera market and features a refined version of the “designed by Leica” dual-camera setup seen on its predecessor.
