The major new update on the device is the inclusion of EIS (Electronic Image Stabilization) on the primary camera of the device. Though EIS is not as effective as OIS, this new update will bring stability to photos and videos, enabling sharper images. Another new feature added in the update is the Party Mode which will allow multiple Honor 10 devices to be connected for playing the same song simultaneously.

Users can also now enrol their fingerprint for authenticating payments using the Paytm app. A new HiTouch feature has also been added to the smartphone, which will use Amazon assistant to identify what products are on the screen. You can read our review of the Honor 10 over here.
