Reviews for the Huawei Mate X

Huawei Mate X Review: Their is Folding Screen Phones Beast
Source: Igeekphone English
Some might ask, “Is it worth $2,600?” It needs to be clear that Mate X is not a continuation of any existing equipment or design. Although it is based on existing smartphone and tablet technology, it is still a new form. For this reason, Huawei’s Mate X and Samsung’s Galaxy Fold phones must now create an exclusive market for devices, and must also recover a lot of research and development costs. Today’s early user prices reflect all of these factors, and it is unfair to judge the phone with current smartphone standards and prices.

Using the Mate X made me a foldable phone believer
Source: CNet English
Last week, Samsung and Huawei announced the $1,980 Galaxy Fold and $2,600 Mate X foldable phones, respectively. I gawked along with everyone else, absorbing every detail I could, but it wasn't until I spent a good 5 minutes playing around with the Mate X in a cramped, stuffy meeting room at MWC 2019 that the appeal of foldable devices sunk in on a much deeper level. Not every foldable phone design will be a revelation, but for me, opening and closing the Mate X was.

Huawei Mate X hands-on review
Source: Stuff TV English
Where many other smartphone companies are standing at the edge of the pool, dipping toes in 5G waters. Huawei has swam a lap, climbed up the diving board, sprung off the edge with a triple reverse roll and made an almighty splash.

Huawei Mate X: First look
Source: PC Advisor English
The decision to show media the device in this controlled fashion has us believe that, again like Samsung, Huawei has made a technological marvel but is cautious about the software bugs. A room with scores of tech journalists will quickly find way to pick holes in a new device as much as they have just fawned over it.

The Huawei Mate X isn't going to be the first foldable phone to launch, but it might be the first you seriously consider paying gobs of money for in 2019. Its solid-feeling hinge allows this handset to fold up, transforming from full 8-inch tablet into a more-traditional-looking 6.6-inch and 6.38-inch smartphone with a screen on either side. It feels like you're holding the future in your hand, just know that your transformative euphoria over this phone comes at a very high price.

Why Huawei's Mate X is the foldable phone to beat
Source: Sydney Morning Herald English
Overall, the Mate X offers a larger display on all fronts with a more refined design, thinner frame and gapless hinge with minimal compromises. Of course there's still question marks over the durability of the hinge and screen in the long-term, but for now the Mate X is the foldable phone to beat.

Huawei Mate X first look: 5G flexibility in a foldable form factor (Updated)
Source: Android Authority English
The Huawei Mate X is a tablet-phone hybrid with an exterior folding display Huawei calls “FullView display,” which is wrapped around the outside of the device. The single flexible 8-inch OLED display provides a tablet experience when open, as well as a phone mode. The Mate X in tablet mode is not quite square with an aspect ratio of 8:7.1. Its 2,480 x 2,200 resolution results in 414 pixels per inch.

But as first impressions go, the Mate X edges nearer to a well-rounded reality than a pie-in-the-sky concept – impressive considering it’s still a few months from hitting the market – and is certainly one of the 2019 handsets we most look forward to getting our mitts on again later this year.

Huawei Mate X – the dazzling new flagship phone with everything
Source: Gadgetguy English
Well, we kind of expected big things from Huawei this year with its new phones, but only superlatives can be used for everything to do with the Huawei Mate X smart phone. In the lead up to the Mobile World Conference in Barcelona, Huawei showed off a phone that, at this stage, looks to be state-of-the-art in everything. (And those superlatives apply equally, as we’ll see, to the purchase price).

Huawei Mate X Foldable Phone First Look: The Future Is Here

As for Philippine availability, it’s still up in the air. While its 2299 Euro(~Php 135.7k) price tag is pretty steep because of regional pricing, there are certainly people out there willing to shell out top peso to get a piece of the foldable pie.

Huawei Mate X hands-on review
Source: GSM Arena English
Unfortunately that's all the hardware info we currently have on the Huawei Mate X. Many potentially important pieces are still missing from the puzzle. Judging by the company's often vague answers to particular questions and the fact that the unit we was on the show floor was the only unit available, we don't really expect to many particulars to get cleared up in the immediate future.

This display size is a threshold between tablets and smartphones. Most tablets have larger screen diagonals but a lot of smartphones offer such a big screen.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
