Huawei Mate Xs Review

Score: 91.6 / 100

Huawei Mate Xs is a top-level phone released a few years ago, which features a 40 mega-pixels back facing camera, an enormous 8 inches display and an extremely fast Octa-Core CPU clocking at 2.86 gigahertz. But it's time to get into a bit more detail.

Regarding its design, the Huawei Mate Xs is majorly built with Aluminum and Aluminum . Huawei made an amazing job making this phone weight only 10.58 oz. Huawei only sells this device in color interstellar blue. Even though this device is thin it's not so thin as many other devices in the market, with a thickness of 0.43 inches. While the Huawei Mate Xs only has 6.35" long, it still manages to pack a 8 inches display.

Huawei packed the Huawei Mate Xs with an awesome 8 inches display, and a resolution of 2200 x 2480 , making everything look vivid and colorful.

The Huawei Mate Xs is powered by an exceptional Octa-Core CPU clocking at 2860 megahertz, included in a HiSilicon Kirin 990 5G system chip and a huge 8 GB RAM memory. A great advantage of the Huawei Mate Xs is the 512 GB big internal storage and while it doesn't have a slot for an external memory card, it it is more than enough to store tons of apps, games, pictures and videos without even thinking about how much storage is left.

This cellphone includes wifi connectivity (which it can share with other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), 5G ultra high bandwidth connection type, 4G LTE-A really quick connection type and also HSPA+ connectivity (which is a lower speed 4G network) and fast 3G internet connection, using HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. The Huawei Mate Xs works with a Nano SIM card for GSM networks.

This phone only has a 40 megapixels back camera. the Huawei Mate Xs's back camera has a maximum 1.8 aperture so it can take sharp photos even in poor lighting conditions. It is also able to capture videos in 4K 3840x2160 at 30 frames per second.

This phone also comes with a wide range of interesting characteristics such as Fingerprint Scanner, NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your phone close to another NFC device or tag), Infrared Transmitter, Bluetooth and GPS, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This cellphone uses an incredible 4500 mAh Li - Polymer non-replaceable battery that can keep it running for many hours and even reach the end of the day without charging it. An issue to consider is that this phone's battery is non-replaceable so you can't change it when it starts to have trouble holding its charge, even though with such a huge battery size you will probably buy a new cellphone before it becomes a real problem.

It doesn't matter whether you want a work cellphone, want it to take lots of photos, want a phone mostly for internet broswing and social networks or need a cellphone for gaming, this phone is the right choice for you. Huawei packs the Huawei Mate Xs with Type-C digital headset, Quick Start Guide, Warranty card, Charger Type-C Cable, Folding Protective Case Installation Guide , Eject pin, Precautions carд and Folding Protective Case.
