Huawei Mate Xs initial review: Re-working the Mate X

 

The Mate Xs is a marginal improvement on the Mate X we saw last year and will be a very expensive device on launch.

Beautiful fold-out display ; Sturdier hinge ; 55W charging ; Proven camera system

Expensive ; Not very pocketable ; Needs protection ; Battery potentially limiting

The Mate Xs is a marginal improvement on the Mate X we saw last year and is a very expensive device. Even so, it still has a lot of potential and there's no doubt it's an impressive device.

Huawei Mate Xs review

 

The Huawei Mate Xs is Huawei's refined version of its first generation of foldable phone and while it gains in specs and durability, it loses out on Google services.

The best foldable phone design Flagship level performance and features Excellent camera

No access to Google Apps Very expensive Uncertainty about the longevity of the screen

A foldable phone that expands into a tablet has been thought of as the next form factor for mobile devices. Huawei has thrown conventional design out of the window with Mate Xs by placing the foldable screen on the outside and we think this design...

Huawei Mate Xs review

 

The Huawei Mate Xs is the closest thing yet to being a perfect foldable phone. A lack of apps and a very high price are its only real issues - the actual hardware is great.

The Huawei Mate Xs is a brilliant phone. It’s the best folding design we’ve seen yet and one of the most polished foldables too.

Huawei Mate Xs folding phone review: Flawed marvel

 

The Huawei Mate Xs is the closest we've got to a true foldable smartphone that becomes a tablet when you want. It's an engineering marvel, but it's also flawed.

Superbly engineered ; Usable both folded and unfolded ; Beautiful screen ; Fast charging ; Useful multi-tasking features ; Excellent camera

Unreliable software ; No Google Mobile Services ; Poor audio ; Very expensive ; Durability is an unknown

Huawei Mate Xs 5G foldable phone review

 

Check out what a foldable should be like - the Mate Xs is a 6" phone when closed, and an 8" tablet when open. We review the specs, camera, performance and unique form factor of the pricey Mate Xs.

'Out-folding' design keeps the big-screen-phone-to-tablet promise best among foldable form factors; A joy to read, browse and Instagram on; Sturdy hinge; Hearty 512GB storage; Good battery life and 65W charger in the box; Versatile camera uses the main...

Hefty and thick with the official bumper case; Apps and games that check for Google services run in limited state; Tight hinge is relatively hard to push open; Square displays feel underutilized with the typical video aspect ratios; The slight 'bump'...

Huawei's Mate Xs is a terrific foldable phone, without Google Services | AndroidPIT

 

With the 2nd generation of its foldable smartphone, Huawei now wants to conquer the international markets. We tested the Mate Xs in advance.

The Huawei Mate Xs is, like its predecessor, an impressive folding smartphone, but it also has its price. At €2,499, it has even become €200 more expensive and is therefore certainly not affordable for everyone. For the purchase price of a Mate Xs, you...

Huawei Mate XS review: Know when to hold 'em and when to fold 'em

 

The Huawei Mate Xs is a fantastic piece of hardware with three big roadblocks to mainstream acceptance: the natural aversion to having a flexible display on the outside of a folding device, a current lack of access to Google apps and services not yet...

Excellent build quality ; Great P-OLED display ; Really good cameras ; Solid performance ; Good battery life ; Innovative design

No Google apps and services ; Limited apps in Huawei App Gallery ; Expensive ; Potentially fragile design
