Huawei Mate 10 Pro: The unfashionable estate car wants to go to town

Michael Strorm

"While flagships got thinner, more beautiful and glassy-eyed each year, the Mate didn't care – it just wanted to haul around the more practical stuff for you. [..] The regular Mate 10 hews to the station wagon formula, but its swankier sibling the Mate 10 Pro seems to have acquired Note envy."

Does it strike anyone as else ironic that they're using the "Pro" designation on the poser-oriented version rather than the substance-over-style, workhorse original an actual professional would be better off with?

(And yes, I know the term is frequently misused as marketing fluff, but this case highlights the absurdity of it).
