The EISA (European Imaging and Sound Association) announced the winners of its awards for the year 2017 to 2018.
As a group focused on imaging and sound, they gave the Huawei P10 the Best Smartphone Camera award for its Leica-branded dual-rear cameras and portrait mode feature. EISA also recommends the bigger brother — P10 Plus — for “an even more professional photography experience.”
Two other Huawei devices also bagged awards — the Honor 8 Pro and the Huawei Watch 2. The former is recognized as the Best Consumer Smartphone with its beastly specs like 6GB of memory, Quad HD display that’s ideal for virtual reality, and 4000mAh battery, while the latter got the Best Wearable Device award.
However, the overall Best Smartphone awards went to the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+. EISA recognizes the Galaxy S8’s HDR-ready Infinity Display, top-notch processor, and excellent rear camera. The Bixby voice assistant also got a mention.
For the Best Buy Smartphone award, the NOA Element H10le was chosen thanks to its great price-to-performance ratio. The phone is powered by a Helio X27 deca-core processor with 4GB of memory and an AMOLED display.
