Reviews for the Huawei Mate RS Porsche Design

Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS review: Is it worth that premium?
Source: Android Authority English Archive.org version
The 256GB Huawei Mate RS has a European price of 1,695 euros, compared to the P20 Pro’s 899 euro (~$1,050) price tag. Meanwhile, readers in the U.K. can expect to pay 1,500 pounds (~$1,980). Up the ante to 512GB and you’ll be paying 2,095 euros (~$2,450). It’s unclear if the U.K. will receive the 512GB model.

Huawei's Porsche Design Mate RS has crazy specs for sky high price
Source: CNet English Archive.org version
In my brief time with the phone, I loved the design aesthetic and high-end features, but the jaw-dropping price made me worried about accidentally dropping the phone, which wouldn't be cheap to replace.

A largely excellent high-end smartphone that’s let down by gremlins. You should expect better when spending this amount of cash.

The Mate RS comes with more optional storage than any phone before it, a new cooling system and an in-screen fingerprint scanner. The rest is basically a Huawei P20 Pro in a Porsche Design body. So yes, this phone is incredibly expensive, but unlike many luxury items, it delivers both style and substance.

Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS preview
Source: Trusted Reviews English Archive.org version
Featuring a beautiful design, insane amounts of storage and a few nifty additions, like wireless charging, the Mate RS is what the P20 Pro should have been. But, the price is ridiculous, even by top-end phone standards, and means that most people won’t be able to pick one up without selling a kidney. Even if you do have the cash to blow, I’d still recommend holding onto it until I’ve used it for a little longer and can comment on what it’s really like to live with.

Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS initial review: In technological pole position?
Source: Pocket Lint English Archive.org version
The Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS arrives at a really interesting time. With little to no "luxury" phone brands in existence - Vertu has fallen by the wayside - and a true focus on design and technology innovation (that doesn't depend on 24 carat gold or 150,000 Swarkovski crystals), there's a lot to impress.

Opinion: The Huawei Mate RS Porsche Design is THE Luxury Smartphone to beat but needs these 3 things to be perfect
Source: Tech Nave English Archive.org version
Luxury smartphones have traditionally been expensive devices that don't really deliver when it comes to performance or technological innovation (the currently deceased Vertu, etc.). However, Huawei's recent Mate RS Porsche Design smartphone is breaking the mould by not only delivering best in class performance but also utilizing the latest components generally not used in consumer devices due to their higher cost instead of just relying on premium materials.

Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS: Everything you want at triple the price
Source: Android Authority English Archive.org version
If you are like us and can’t afford to blow two months’ rent on a new smartphone, you’re probably pretty sad right now. But hey, today’s superphone is tomorrow’s normal phone. The very fact that a phone exists on the market with three cameras, an under-glass fingerprint sensor, 512GB of storage, and wireless charging, all in one, means that those features are coming soon to a more affordable device.

Huawei P20, P20 Pro and Mate RS hands-on review
Source: GSM Arena English Archive.org version
We are glad Huawei sprung into action and brought us two of the hottest flagships this season. The Mate RS was probably hotter still, but its price means it will always remain a niche product. It doesn't make it any less exciting, though.

Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS initial review: Stepping up a gear
Source: Pocket Lint English Archive.org version
There was once a time that a "luxury" phone often meant a compromise. There were any number of expensive handsets where the product didn't match the price and you were paying for the brand and perhaps an expensive finish. Not so with the Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS.

6.00":

It is a very small display format for smartphones. You should by no means be mis-sighted and you will generally see very little on the screen and only have a small resolution available. In return, the device should be very small and handy.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
