Huawei Mate X Review

Score: 89.4 / 100

Huawei Mate X is an absolutely great device released in November 2019, coming with an extremely powerful Octa-Core CPU clocking at 2600 megahertz, a 40 mega-pixels back camera and a large 8-inches screen.

Huawei just sells this phone in blue color. This phone is a compact cellphone, given that it has a 8" screen and it's only 6.35 inches long and 5.76" wide. The Huawei Mate X is slim and comfortable, although it's not as thin as many other devices out there, with a thickness of 0.43 inches. Huawei made an amazing design job making this cellphone weight only 10.41 oz. Regarding its construction materials, this device is majorly created with Glass .

Huawei sells this cellphone with a very fast 2.6 gigahertz Octa-Core CPU, bundled in the HiSilicon Kirin 980 system chip and a large 8 GB RAM. A good point of the Huawei Mate X is its large 512 GB internal memory and while it doesn't include a slot for external memory cards, it is still enough to install hundreds of applications and even the heaviest games available nowadays without worrying about running out of space.

Huawei equipped the Huawei Mate X with an awesome 8 inches screen, and a resolution of 2200 x 2480 , giving this phone a delightful image quality.

This phone includes wi-fi connectivity (which it can share with other devices around, acting as a modem), 5G cutting edge connectivity, LTE-A 4G ultra fast connectivity and also HSPA+ data connection (which is a lower speed 4G variation) and the fastest 3G connectivity, supported by HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. This phone works with a Nano SIM card for GSM carriers.

The Huawei Mate X has only a 40 mega-pixels back camera. this phone's back camera lens has a maximum f/1.8 aperture so it can take beautiful photographs even in dark conditions.

The Huawei Mate X uses a 4500 mAh large Li - Polymer non-replaceable battery, enough to provide the Huawei Mate X with an incredible battery duration. An issue to take into consideration is that this device's battery is non-removable so you can't buy a new battery when it starts to lose its charge, though with such a big battery you will probably buy a new phone before that happens.

This phone also includes a great numbre of cool features such as Fingerprint Reader, NFC (Near Field Communication), Bluetooth (5.0 ) and GPS Geolocation, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

The Huawei Mate X is being sold for 2299 dollars, not cheap for comparing with similar cellphones. This phone is very appropiate no matter if you are an amateur photographer, will use it mainly for internet broswing and social networks, want a gaming device or are looking for a work cellphone. The Huawei Mate X is packed with 55W Charger .
