Reviews for the Huawei Mate X2

Does the Folding Mate X2 have Hidden Carbon Fiber? - Teardown!
Source: JerryRigEverything English
Huge thanks to Raycon for sponsoring this video. Huaweis new folding Mate X2 is a super expensive device. With advertised carbon fiber supports for the bending screen maybe that cost is justified? The only way to see the insides is with a teardown!

70% Huawei Mate X2 hands-on review: an expensive foldable with an ingenious design
Source: Neowin English
Despite being over two years old, the foldable market still feels like it's in an embryonic state, which makes it exciting to keep an eye on but also somewhat frustrating when it comes to actually using these devices. I love a lot of what Huawei did here, especially the design. Having most of the weight of the phone directly on the user's hand is ingenious and it almost makes you question why no one else has done it yet. It's also one of the thinner foldables right now, and the cover display has one of the most natural aspect ratios we've seen on any foldable so far, so using it as a normal phone is actually a viable option.

a $3,000 dollar folding phone?! - Huawei Mate X2 Durability Test!
Source: JerryRigEverything English
Folding phones are some of the coolest smartphones around. Yeah, they are pretty expensive at the moment. But so were microwaves at one point. Eventually the price on cool tech always comes down. Today we are going to see how durabile Huaweis new Mate X2 Folding phone really is, and if it can survive a little bit of dust.

80% Huawei Mate X2 review
Source: Tech Advisor English
You probably won't buy the Mate X2 - it's expensive, only on sale in China, and doesn't run Google apps and services. But from a hardware side, Huawei has knocked it out of the park, with a powerful camera and flawless foldable form factor. It’s hard to argue that this isn’t the best foldable hardware in the world right now.

Is This Phone The Future Of Foldables?
Source: MrMobile English
Episode 7 was planned as a traditional first-impressions video of the Huawei Mate X2, a rethinking of that company's approach to folding-screen smartphones and a direct competitor to Samsung's Galaxy Z Fold 2. But then something happened to my own Z Fold 2 that made me wonder whether the Huawei Mate X2 might in fact be something bigger: a preview of the future of foldable phones in general. Join me for episode 7 of Into The Fold!

The Huawei Mate X2 made me realize how much I was missing out on
Source: XDA Developers English
I’ve long been a fan of foldables — in theory. Many of my colleagues in the media have told me how their first time with a foldable was transformative for their views. My 1 week with the Mate X2 has indeed been a transformative experience. I can’t see the future of smartphone design going in any other direction. Whether the industry settles on an asymmetrical wedge design and inward folding display isn’t something I can predict, but I can say for certain that this is a winning design combo. The Huawei Mate X2 feels like a very polished product that’s only really held back by its lack of availability and absurdly high price.

80% Huawei Mate X2 review

The Huawei Mate X2 is a seriously special phone. It proves that foldables are indeed awesome, and can be durable enough to handle the real world while delivering a killer user experience. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 went part-way to making that point, but with a camera and front display that fell short compared to other flagships, the Mate X2 takes the final steps to foldable greatness.

88% Huawei Mate X2 review: a foldable masterpiece... at a price
Source: Phone Arena English
Huawei has improved the zooming algorithms for clearer shots at much farther distances, and has also provided a way to take selfies with both the front camera for when you are in a hurry, and the exemplary rear kit when you have more time to unfurl the phone open, using the external display as a huge 6.45" viewfinder of the main camera. Take that, puny Mi 11 Ultra secondary screen!

88% Huawei Mate X2 review

We consider the Mate X2 a "halo" showcase device with very limited availability and a deliberately prohibitive price tag around EUR 2300. It is not a device anyone is going to physically be owning or daily-driving any time soon. At least not as reviewed, in its current form.

90% Huawei Mate X2 review: Tainted love
Source: Android Authority English
The Huawei Mate X2 is the most perfect foldable I've used. Sadly, it comes with a big "but" for Western markets: the lack of Google support. A technical marvel that can't install YouTube, the Mate X2 will likely remain out of reach for all but the most dedicated consumers.

Huawei Mate X2 hands on: Now this is it
Source: Android Authority English
The Huawei Mate X2 box includes a 66W charging brick, USB-C to USB-A cable, and a pair of USB-C earbuds. It also comes with a very nice-looking PU leather case with a kickstand that works when the phone is open as well as closed. It’s worth pointing out that although the Mate X2 comes with a 66W brick (11V/6A), the phone itself only supports 55W fast charging (11v/5A).

Huawei Mate X2 Review: Improved Folding Technology, Dual OLED Display
Source: Igeekphone English
With superb craftsmanship and a very pleasing design, combined with powerful performance and video hardware configuration, Huawei Mate X2 is undoubtedly one of the best folding screen products in the mobile phone market. The price starting at $2774.99 seems to be high, but combined with its innovative structural design and sincere stacking materials, Huawei Mate X2 Phone will not hinder its unique charm even if it is worth 10,000 yuan. The efficient experience between opening and closing, such as a Huawei Mate X2, do you love it?

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.
