Its a win win IF one can afford it.
I'm telling you, the phone's not worth it unless you are a millionaire. Because, like all phones, you might just drop the phone on the ground and it rolls into a drain and you can't get it back. There goes your 3000 dollars...
HUAWEI Mate X foldable screen is from BOE, a Chinese display manufacturing company.
Not from SAMSUNG Display, Korean company.

After watching the actual handling videos of this device and the videos by Samsung for its fold I looked at the options offered and practicality of these phones;
The Huawei Mate X when folded gives you a full smart phone with 6.6" which by all standards is enough for all smartphone use scenarios. it also gives you all what their flagship phones have to offer including media consumption, emails, social media, etc. When unfolded it basically gives you an 8" tablet with all tablet features and awesome speakers. This tablet mode for most users will be 25% (or less) of the time as the folded form is more than enough for most users. This factor will reduce need for unfolding constantly and help reduce wear and tear. So in summary, you have a huge screen flagship smartphone and a flagship tablet when folded and unfolded respectively.
Samsung Galaxy fold on the other hand when folded offers a below average and non-usable (by todays standards) smartphone with a 4.6" screen and a ratio that makes it a tad better than a feature phone. When unfolded, it gives a 7.2" screen which is not exactly a tablet and borders a big screen phone territory in a very uncomfortable way. In otherwords, to type an sms or WhatsApp message, you have to unfold the device, to send an email or do anything on social media, you have to unfold the device. The folded form is only good for calls and can't be used conveniently to thumb type (basically a feature phone). its essentially a touch enabled Nokia 9210i giving you a folded option which is a feature phone and an unfolded option which is an oversized smartphone. Most importantly, an unfortunate buyer will end up unfolding it 90% of the time which will quickly wear the hinge mechanism and eventually result in a very expensive repair and ownership cost.
The Huawei Mate X is value for money while the Galaxy fold is a 1980's tech enthusiast's fantasy.
Unfortunately they stole illegally. Sorce codes from Cisco, fold screens from Samsung.

Mate X will cost about 2300€... you funking kidding me?!? I bet any foldable phone/phablet will cost at least 1500€, i assume. That fact alone will steer majority of people clear away from this market.
