Reviews for the Huawei Mate 50

Huawei Mate 50 Smartphone Review
Source: OI Spice Tech News English
After analyzing different aspects of the Huawei Mate 50, the phone does have a charming effect from the brand, while the design layout feels refreshing and offers a performance setup. However, there are some minor flaws such as the screen only got a 90Hz refresh and more smooth experience, you have to purchase the Pro model. Apart from this, the camera results are fabulous and the battery life is average. Overall, Huawei does have a legit fan base that constantly looks for upcoming products and the fact that this phone will sell well because of them. But if you look at the whole market, you will find robust smartphones for under the $750 price tag. Plus, if you have that budget, then we highly recommend you check out Googe Pixel 7 Pro for an immersive camera experience with the newest Android update support. Finally, make a decision that fits your wish.
