Bigger sized phones have found a place in the smart device market, and this is for a few reasons. Perhaps the best one is that the size of the screen offers viewers a far better viewing experience. The Huawei Mate 20 X has a 7.2” screen that displays a whopping 1080x2244 pixels. It has a 40MP camera system, and 6GB of RAM. The battery is an astonishing 5,000mAh, giving you plenty of uptime for your daily activities.
As is the case with these larger sized devices, functionality can be a problem for people with smaller hands. The fingerprint sensor’s location, combined with the overall dimensions of the Huawei Mate 20 X make it a little difficult for some people to unlock the phone. The IP rating is only IP53, so don’t go swimming with this device.
Is it for you?
If you are looking for a phone that has an excellent viewing surface, great internal components, and is built from high quality materials, then this is a good choice. The chipset and GPU lend themselves well to gaming, which isn’t surprising because this model is a good choice if you enjoy playing high performance titles on an Android device.
Meet the Huawei Mate 20 X
The phone features a rear facing fingerprint sensor, an Octa core CPU, 6GB of RAM, and a front and back glass design with an aluminum frame. It only weighs around 232g, which may sound like a lot, but this is a big device with solid construction materials. The device comes loaded with Android Pie, giving users an up to date android experience.
What we like
We really like the overall size of the device, especially the screen. It is an AMOLED capacitive display with a 16M color depth, giving it dynamic and beautiful display capabilities. It measures at around 7.2 inches, and is covered in Corning Gorilla Glass. The screen also supports HDR10 and has a Multi Touch interface for better navigation.
The camera system is a triple unit array of cameras comprised of 1 x 40MP, 1 x 20MP and 1 x 8MP cameras. They work together in tandem to create amazingly detailed pictures with incredible quality and resolutions.
Huawei has even included an infrared port on this device, so you can control appliances such as TVs, Hi-Fi systems and Air Conditioner units. The USB 3.1 interface uses a type C connector, which is unidirectional, meaning that you will always plug the device in properly first try.
What we don’t like
Considering that this phone is such a high quality camera solution, there are bound to be times when you risk coming into contact with water. With this in mind, a Higher IP rating would have been a welcome addition to the unit, as it would ensure that an accidental meeting with water would not confine it to a recycling center.
Should you buy it?
If you need a big display, amazing camera capabilities, and an insane battery, then this is most definitely the device for you. It allows for gaming and other high intensity activities such as HD content without breaking a sweat. We would have preferred an under the display fingerprint sensor, but that is just a small preference.
