Reviews for the Huawei Mate Xs

Huawei Mate Xs hands-on review
Source: GSM Arena English
On the other hand, even if Huawei launched the Mate Xs to be able to compete with more up-to-date hardware, the handset is still lacking Google Services, which in turn makes the smartphone hard to sell. And once again, Huawei has a great piece of tech, which you can't have outside of China without caveats. But if you don't mind using Huawei Mobile Services, you can get the phone for €2,499 internationally in about a month.

Huawei Mate Xs review (hands on)

Huawei is known for its excellent engineering, but we’ll have to see whether even its skills are up to the task before them here. Although I'm confident that the Mate Xs will deal with the strains of everyday use better than other foldables, that doesn't necessarily mean it will manage as well as a standard smartphone. The extortionate price means this will not be a phone for the masses, which in a way is good. Most people won't want to do without Google apps.

Huawei Mate Xs hands-on review

The Mate Xs is a 5G foldable with insane power, a super camera set-up, and if Huawei’s claims are true, enough juice to last over a day. Arguably there’s no better way to futureproof your pocket, problem is, with no word on pricing or availability will it burn a hole in it?

Huawei Mate Xs Hands-on Review: Better Than The Fold?
Source: Unbox English
Unlike the original Mate X, the Mate Xs is a phone made for global audiences. The phone is priced at Euros 2499 (around Php 138K) and will be shipping in Global markets next month. Take note though – Euro pricing is typically higher than local pricing, and the Mate Xs may end up being significantly cheaper if and when it hits our shores.

Huawei Mate XS hands-on: Weird flex, but it’s still unique

The Mate XS will receive a global launch (not the US, obviously), which includes select regions throughout Europe. We also know that it doesn’t come with the fancy leather case bundled with the original Mate X. We will be able to buy one separately, however, and something tells me you’ll want to as there’s no way I’d put this thing in my pocket unprotected!

Huawei Mate XS Hands-on: Solid hardware, but lacks Google Play Store
Source: Mobile Syrup English
In my short time with the Mate XS, I thought it was impressive. It’ll be interesting how long the fold lasts, how good the camera is, how long that 4,500mAh battery can survive for, and what apps have been optimized for its expansive 8-inch screen.

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.
