[Deal Alert] Huawei Mate 10 Pro down to $649.99 at various retailers ($150 off)

Shortly after coming to the U.S., the Huawei Mate 10 Pro is already seeing a nice discount. You can pick up this phone for $649.99, $150 off MSRP, from Amazon, B&H, Best Buy, and Newegg. Honestly, this is a great deal.

Huawei Mate 10 Pro (U.S.) second opinion: A great phone that probably won't make it

Huawei has had a tough time of things in 2018, getting the rug pulled out from under it just before it launched the U.S. version of its flagship Mate 10 Pro on AT&T. The blows just kept coming with Verizon pulling out of a deal, followed by "security warnings" from some of the American government security agencies. While all of the political mess is somewhat fun to look back at and is good for a nice chuckle or two, my focus here is on the phone itself, Huawei's centerpiece.

[Deal Alert] Huawei Mate 10 Pro down to $699.99 ($100 off) at multiple retailers

The Huawei Mate 10 Pro didn't have the smoothest US launch, partly because Huawei tried to stuff its Best Buy listing with fake reviews. But before that mess emerged, Massdrop began offering the Mate 10 Pro at $699.99, $100 off MSRP. Amazon, B&H, and Best Buy are now matching that price.

TWRP now supports Honor View10, Mate 10 Pro, and more

TeamWin Recovery Project, or TWRP for short, is an invaluable tool for anyone looking to mod their device - from installing ROMs to simply making backups. The last time we covered the project earlier this month, it had started supporting the Moto Z2 Force, Redmi 5A, and several other phones.

Since then, a few more devices have been added to the roster, including the Honor View10 and Mate 10 Pro.

Magisk developer adds support for Huawei devices, will be away for the next 4 months

Magisk, one of the most recognized and well-known rooting solutions around, has just received an update to version 16.0. The update comes just a short week after version 15.4 was released, and includes a bootloop fix, support for Huawei and Honor devices with Treble (the Mate 10, 10 Pro, and View 10), and a few other changes.

[Update: Reviews all deleted] Huawei loads its Best Buy Mate 10 Pro listing with over 100 fake reviews, inevitably gets caught

Almost three months ago, we reviewed Huawei's Mate 10 Pro. We concluded that it'd be a good buy when it hit the US market, so long as it wasn't priced at $1000. Well, Huawei hasn't made that mistake (the phone is currently $799.99 with a $150 gift card at Best Buy), but it isn't doing itself any favors today. The company has overloaded the Mate 10 Pro's Best Buy listing with over 100 fake reviews from aspiring "beta testers," giving the phone - one still in the pre-order phase, mind you - a 4.9-star overall rating.

Huawei Mate 10 Pro comes through JerryRigEverything testing (mostly) unscathed

Huawei's Mate 10 Pro is finally launching in the US, but not the way Huawei would probably like. Both AT&T and Verizon are reported to have dropped plans to sell the phone after pressure from the government. You can get the phone unlocked, but it's spendy. At least it'll be a durable device if you do drop the cash. YouTube channel JerryRigEverything has subjected the Mate 10 Pro to the usual battery of tests, and it earns a passing grade.

[Deal Alert] Get the Mate 10 Pro for $699.99 ($100 off) via Massdrop

Huawei's Mate 10 Pro is a good phone, but it's not one you'll be able to get from your carrier. Deals with AT&T and Verizon both collapsed in the face of government pressure, but it's launching in the US as an unlocked phone later this month. Massdrop has this phone today, and it's offering $100 off.

Huawei Mate 10 Pro coming to US for $800 next month, AT&T version nowhere to be found

Huawei has announced that it will sell the Mate 10 Pro smartphone unlocked in the US for $799 in partnership with a number of online retailers starting next month. Best Buy, Amazon, Microsoft, Newegg, and B&H will also all offer $150 gift cards if you pre-order the phone.

Pre-orders of the Mate 10 Pro, which we like overall, will begin on February 4th and run through the 17th. On February 18th, the retail launch will officially get underway.

Oddly missing from today's announcement is any mention of a carrier version of the phone, which many in the industry had expected would be unveiled alongside the unlocked version today.

Source: Verizon also under pressure to cancel upcoming Huawei phone launch

According to a source familiar with the company's plans, Verizon is facing political pressure to cancel the launch of a Huawei smartphone later this year. The source stated Verizon intended to sell the Huawei Mate 10 this summer, but it had recently been pushed back to fall, and now it appears there is a strong likelihood it will be cancelled altogether. This follows closely on news that AT&T would cancel its own launch of the Mate 10 Pro for similar reasons.

For those unfamiliar with the AT&T story, The Information reported that the U.S. Senate and House intelligence committees sent letters to the FCC in December alleging Huawei was a security threat, and expressed "concerns" that the company was working with U.S.
