According to him, all brands in universe are all trash. Except s**y.
He will change his mind "again" after s**y implement the same plastic foldable.
New innovations have to be started by someone. Even with risks. This is how technology works. You start it, mitigate the risks, and develop better solution.
I praise huawei and samsung for their effort to start this new foldable tech.
And i despise company that just wait wait wait for so long long time, waiting other companies to implement the mature technology and then copy from them.

I don't play Facebook, thus I cannot sign up for the account.
A company which cannot optimise their UI and need help from other to do that, how can they produce a good phone themselves?
Recently many S10 units shipped early in the States reportedly came in open boxes.
And the first day sale of the S10 series in South Korea is the lowest compared with S9 and Note9.
All the proofs already said that SAMSUNG is going down slowly.

With an engineering background its clear to me that a complicated composition makes for difficult repair and heavy ownership cost.
Huawei Mate X is an optimized piece of technology that provides perdormance or that range, reliability and efficiency in what its deaigned to be (a flagship smartphone in folded form and a flagship mobile tablet in unfolded form) without compromising affordability and ease of repair and parts replacement.
This is "Neo" my posts were being delayed so I had to properly create an account and sign in.
please stop misinforming folks. This Mate X is extreme value for money. Apple needs to release similar.

I think its better to be well researched before posting falsehood to misinform folks who are here for honest reviews and facts.
Stop the misinformation pls.
A smart Shooter, 07 Mar 2019Carbon fibre is better on signal reception and lighter than plastic and stronger than plastic ... moreTechnologies cost money and carbon fibre optiom of flagships are usually double the price.
Huawei still keeps a standard of making cutting edge, practical and reliable Technologies at affordable prices. Samsung keeps ripping people off with garbage and the "fold" will be an ownership cost nightmare. A 9210i with Android would be better value than "fold" at $2000.
I watched tonns of videos and DID NOT see ANY wrinkles and would buy in a heartbeat. I also read reviews from journalists who actually used it for hours.
Nice concept, but, have anyone imagined how would it be to place this phone on desk, table, bench or anywhere. The screen would be schratched within 10 days. Not to mention puting it in the poket of jeans. Huawei has to produce 10 spare screens for each phone produced.

As I said 5G need time to coming but Fold-phone with super pricey will have time to reduce more and more so either you get one during expensive and waiting 5G or you get later with 5G launched and price reduced, but one thing will be never change:

if I invest in the Huawei Mate X when available (in 3 months time) knowing that the technology it packs (eg 5G) is still valid for 3 to 4 years and beyond then its a very smart and worthwhile investment.
Its the best android package. Apple should release theirs too. As this is the yardstick for Android - Huawei is Android.

The Nokia has a folded mode that can do nothing than pick calls only. The screen can't even accomodate two thumbs let alone allow for typing sms, WhatsApp message, email or even do anything on social media. its a narrow 4.6" that's makes it a feature phone at best.
In other to type an sms, email, WhatsApp, email or anything you have to unfold the device. Hence 98% of your activities will need you unfolding it - the hinge and the folded screen part will wear almost immediately.
With the Huawei Mate X, in a folded form you can do ANYTHING and EVERYTHING thanks to the 6.6" front screen and the 6.3" rear selfie mode view finder screen. You will rarely need it unfolded except for movies, etc.

I know Huawei want makes it weight lighter and get better signal reception with plastic materials but it looks like a toys or demo prototype. 5G is not completely launch for most of the market, yes you can waiting till it coming maybe 1 or 2 years can you waiting for it? The price show Huawei is greedy but they say they already reduce the price.

By the way, if they use anything apart from the current material (which I'm not even sure is plastic), you won't get the durability, efficiency and most importantly, it might turn out to be way more expensive.
Huawei is known for quality at affordable prices and this is no exception. With 5G, its as future proof as it gets.
You are asking for a car made of titanium, I'm looking for practicality, efficiency, useability (unlike "fold"), durability and affordability.

Display ratio 16:9 soon will coming, I am waiting you to praise it on that time. 4:3 content a 16:9 video means it get smaller view field. The QWERTY keyboard should be split two part for 4:3 ratio even the 16:9 display is better to split the keyboard for two sides, so why bother to use a 4:3, this is because hardware limitation but also software limitation.
The build quality is not future proof with plastic body.
Anonymous, 06 Mar 2019Poor battery ....Kept on complaining poor battery. Better have your own phone factory to satisfy all your needs. Huawei now is the best brand in the market and I doubt what other say.
A smart Shooter, 06 Mar 2019295gram for phone it is too heavy, for tablet it is just fine. Why Huawei don't use carbon fib... moreI'm not sure you saw the videos and reviews by tech journalists who inlike Samsung were allowed to hold and play around with the Huawei Mate X for up to 3 hours;
1. There are no "wrinkles" and the hinge mechanism was commended as a technological feat.
2. The 4:3 screen ratio when unfolded is the best aspect ratio for a 7" - 8" tablet intended to be on the go especially for thumb-typing and without an external keyboard. A truly mobile device.
3. Considering the folded form being a flagship phone with a huge bezel-less 6.6" screen with an equally bezel-less rear 6.3" selfie mode view finder screen, an unfolded 8" flagship tablet with a large capacity battery (imagine the SOT if used only in phone mode), the weight is quite ideal.
The thinness and distribution makes it feel a whole lot lighter than it really is. Its even lighter (or about same) and thinner than the Apple ipad mini 4 - only it offers more versatility and features as a flagship phone and tablet in one.
Its extreme value for money and worth every penny. Its also future proof with 5G.
Poor battery ....
