Mate x design makes him more vulnerable, while fold design has his cons too...
darodassa, 26 Aug 2019Pulling these things out of thin air, why? Can't afford one? What exactly is limited on this d... moreWell im getting frustrated about waiting for such a constipated excitment phone that they promise they will come out by July but was canceled and now they prosbound to see the phone available by september but we don't hear any news or no nothing.. Its already Septemeber.. So the point is... why are they promising so much this and that which ends up been all a lie ? IF if the phone has issues.. WHY not fix these things during the making of the huawei mate x BEFORE you end up promoting it to the public. Dont just create this phone halfway point while same time your announcing it.. How about smart busienss with a brain to create a phone. Test it a million times and then if the project works well... then promote it aventually. Dont just promote things and then act like there are issues with screens or something... which proves that busienss are lazy in testing thier own projects properly. This is starting to make me believe should i even trust huawei and samsung... if they create this phone... why don't they test the phones many times before they end up promoting things when more likely they going to have issues the following day. This proves they are lazy company people who dont bother testing... im not going to spent 2000 dollars for a folding phone when more likely it might defect and break apart...
Do your homework Huawei and Samsung.. do your homework... BEFORE you begin to promote things and release dates.. How about create a new folding phone and then test the phone a thousand milion times to make sure there are no issues with the models and then release your annoucement to the public. Just dont act like nothing will happen wrong. Course now im starting to think if i was to get this phone the screen might break apart.. dead pixels.. or anything.. So that is risky and costly and you have no idea how much it will cost you all to repair such a damn phone. Plus expect a 2 or 3 months or more until you get your fix phone back. Just wait and see that when people begin to complaint about the phone not working properly...
This is why i argue that companies should wake up to themselves without wasting peoples time... Create a folding screen phone AND then test the phone project a million times.. Not a dozen times.. but much more then that to be precies with your technology... Anyways i rather end up going back to the old days of a motorola brick phone. At least its strong and durable.
Jhonny, 27 Aug 2019They should give a stereo speaker and a selfie cameraIf there is no Stereo speakers as in Sorround sound top and bottom just like what Samsung has on most traditional phones.. then i tell you this Huawei mate x is a kimmic and rubish. Why spent that much money when it may sound like a mono and might not even have top and bottom speakers for clear sorround sound. Why bother get this folding screen phone if it doesnt have a 50x zoom lense camera.. or one of it's kind like (pro30) has. So these things are good. what else do they expect to shove on a phone knowdays.. a damn toaster with a cord attach to it.. seriously why should we all wait when we dont no nothing whats going on. I think 2019 has been the worse year ever for many of us.
This waiting senario is totally boredness and it is no wondr why now... the big mistake and the big problem for Samsung and Huawei.. Is that people where looking forward to get the Huawei mate x on a contract or to buy outright. But since there was a delay previewsly.. and now it seems it is delayed twice again with no hope of seen the phone by September now... Why bother waiting.. Most people need a phone and a new style but since many people dont like waiting because delays and so on with the companies such as this.. Then it's no wonder why Samsung and Huawei are slightly loosing people for this type of phone that once was promised to be out in the market. So aventually people will just "Give up" waiting and people just go buy a new diferent type of phone or under a contract.
I don't blame these who left the hope for Huawei mate x... I am almost to the nerve and point of leaving and dont bother with a flexible bend screen. So why bother waiting this is nothing upsolute NOTHING new. Just like Samsung they delay new model tv's models.. this and that issues... And believe it or not Samsung had a big issue with the preview phones batteries... lets see the reason why this time Samsung is now delaying thier new folding screen phones... This is how they loose many fans. They go with another brand and less stress bothering of waiting for so long.
Well with Huawei already enough BIG problems as it is with USA and all that... no wonder why they are also delayng this model phone. Why bother annoucing things IF YOU DONT PROMISE the dates. Dont just promote and make people all excitement.. because if you lie... your simply going to have many likes of this phone (boring and why bother waiting for a folding screen) since they never promise what they say in the first place.
I rather go back to the brick Motorola phone and forget that anything else looks like a toy in 2019 and beyond.
Anonymous, 21 Aug 2019That’s what Bluetooth is for i dont use headphone jack anymore Thank you! Same here, this is making me nuts. No headphone jack? Seriously? I haven't even touched a 3.5mm jack since 2014, we have bluetooth and these ports let dust and moisture in. Banish them! 2019 flagship fold screen phone, why would one keep this old school trash in? So I can watch a video in 4k on my high-end 2019 phone... and listen to tin can audio on my gas-station-grade earbuds from china like it's 2010? get yourself some decent Bose or Sennheiser noise cancelling headphones with bluetooth aptx and arrive in the real world. I never looked back. Not once did I miss that on my current P20 pro, I didn't even unpack that absurd adapter.
Same with battery capacity. I'm a heavy user, I have been carrying power banks for years and I don't care. It runs out? The 10.000mAh I bring with me everywhere I go will take care of this. People need to stop whining and get a spirit for technology. I just have a MAN-PURSE to carry all these things with me.
masdami29, 26 Aug 2019This whole senario about foldable screens doesn't mean it will have all the features that a or... morePulling these things out of thin air, why? Can't afford one? What exactly is limited on this device? Android has multi window. Check out Leena or Sentio desktop, it will transform the way you use your phone and multi-task. Not "much difference" to a ordinary phone? Yes, aside from the outrageous design and never-been-done-before folding mechanism with latest panel technology of course.
"folding screen meant to look like a mini tablet but that is nothing unusual." nothing unusual, yes, I see them everywhere. My grandma just got her second Royole FlexPai and she's bored of it already.
"There are competitors and you can not destroy traditional phones yet." You absolutely can, Multi-tasking and nearly double the screen real estate, camera hangs with the best and specs are great. Yes, there is competition, but these specs are only "standard" for enthusiasts, average joe doesn't spend this much money on a phone and does not have this tier of power and specs in his pocket. That makes this an absolute beast of a phone in practice, doesn't matter if other phones match or beat it in theory. If I whip out my folding 8 Inch phone with 8 GB RAM, Kirin 980 and Infrared Port It will outclass probably 97% of other phones that other people around me have.
Next paragraph I just disagree completely, do you have any idea how many manufacturers recall cars after decades of developement? battery failures like on the note 7 or cracking panels like early samsung prototypes are normal. Show me one category of technology that doesn't have these issues. It's normal and they obviously showed it earlier to create hype, they are a smart company and hype on social media is free marketing. Whats the alternative, be in the unknown and then sink billions into marketing because no one heard of your phone? They did nothing wrong imo.
"people will not bother waiting and they eventually end up buying traditional phone instead. Since people do NOT wish to be time wasted. Think about this." Well, I'm waiting so there's one. I won't buy anything else until I have gotten my hands on a Mate X, which I'll probably buy. People wait months for games, that's laughable. But it makes sense to delay and improve something as much as possible, if needed. They can take their time until 2020.
You need to learn the difference between technology in the white world and the black world. We are spoon fed progress and actually 20 years ahead.
For example, I read people complain about plastic screen. I agree, this is why they are working on hybrid glass that can fold and once that is out I know what to replace my future Mate X with. You GO IN and buy anyway, that's life, you need to try things out and see how they work out. This is why I'm not crying "oh no it will scratch who's gonna help me then???" or "it's soo expensove omg omg", I'm going after this and I will buy. This is pioneering, these are advancements we need to have and this is why this isn't just a gimmick on a phone, this is a snapshot of the future.
This whole senario about foldable screens doesn't mean it will have all the features that a ordinary traditional phone will have... Tho only limited of things.
If this phone was to have everything a traditional phone offers plus a fordable screen. Plus a good zoom lens camera... then the rest of all traditional phones will be old looking. But that won't happen and the main scenario about this fordable screen is that its just a fordable screen but that does not mean it will have everything or greater then any traditional phone in the market. Its all limited when a phone comes out. So there won't be much of a differences then a ordinary traditional phone. The only differences you will find about this phone is nothing more then just a folding screen meant to look like a mini tablet but that is nothing unusual.
People assume that this is the new technology when all your going to experience is nothing more then a folding screen. But the rest of the stuff built in is just like a ordinary traditional phone. It's not like as if this phone will do far more then a traditional phone. There are competitors and you can not destroy traditional phones yet.
Also since there is just delays over nothing and all this comercial hights about the recent shown huawei mate x and then you hear they have change things. I seriously dont understand why is all the fuzz about showing something if your going to continue to change your mind by changing something else on this model phone... Don't show this model and shouldnt have shown this in the first place if you are to change our mind later by re-doing this model phone or hardware... I just don't get it. You obviously huawei was not fully ready about this phone but that you should of not teased us with such a demo phone when you end up wanting to change your mind by re-doing the phone and hardware.. Just makes no sense... Wouldn't it be better to just design the phone carefully... do 100s of times test.. thats why your a big company... And then add what is needed such as hardware and everthing.. BEFORE you end up showing the world demo phones of the actual thing when its not even design properly yet or half way to your work. Your giving away too much info for other companies such as Motorolla and LG and so on to copy your technology because you where half way making this phone and all of suddent you rushed to show the world about it. Why not show the phone at the time when you KNOW that the phone does NOT need no more fixing and no more hardware work have to built in.
Also i don;t understand how a big company such as Huawei could end up having issues with the phone once you gave denos world wide and then realise later it seens there are issues with the screen and now you are to re-do the whole phone design to starting point.. A big company with so much money.. why dont they just test them a miliion times in a labaratory where they make the phones BEFORE you do the ridiculous of showing the phone and letting people touch it.. It just makes no sense...
It is Huawei responsability to test them themselves BEFORE you begin to post them to people to try the phone out. You dont just make a phone and then you careless about testing a milion times in the labaratory before you post them to people.... Just makes no sense.. Thats why there is this odd about delays all the times with phones.. Because companys are slack in testing the phones properly . But of course they end up having to re-do the phone once the phone comes out. Just makes no sense..
It is best to test it hard enough before you anounce the phone and before you begin to post them to people for a drive test. Thats how you make it full clear view of what your going to sell.
Anyways all this delay is because of that. Now this means Huawei and Samsung are starting to loose some ratings slowly over this phones.... at the start the whole world wanted this phone (months ago) once they announced it. But since there is so much delays and i think it is rather silly for the delay... the whole waitinga nd waiting means people would not wait around and eventually thousands of people will not bother waiting and they eventually end up buying traditional phone instead. Since people do NOT wish to be time wasted. Think about this.
You want to make good money fast and have the whole nation to your folding phone ... well you shouldnt have to muck around by changing your mind changing this or that hardware and the delays...
Think before you make any changes... i hate when companies do that all the times.. they promote.. so excited but later they change the minds and thats where the time wasted begins by delaying everything. Nothing new.. no wonder why this world is lack on technology.. since we havent had a human back on the moon recently yet and mars yet. Thats how slow technology seem to be on earth.
atleast worth wise it should come with 16GB ram and 92% body to screen ratio.. comparing to its price tag
Anonymous, 20 Aug 2019No 3.5mm, no way!Headphone jack seems to have become history...
I like listening to music while I am charging my phone in the same time. I, also, don't like the idea of removing the headphone jack, but what can we do...? We have to go with the flow(or better said...with the flaw?).
Anonymous, 20 Aug 2019Why you need to take selfie when it is unfold?
Folded has better grip. Being on the go, when I video talk with the loveones, them beeing faraway for a long time, miles away from me, I would love seeing them on a bigger sceen... Video call is nicer on a bigger sceen, and two video(camera) windows cramped on a small screen it is not fun.
So, if the Huawei provided us with a gadget that transform itself into a tablet(having "transformers": smartphone into tablet), why not have the all(complete) package: with a selfie camera into tablet mode?
It lakcs IP68 Water Resistance, but also needs another camera, more exactly a selfie camera in tablet mode.
The phone when it is fully open doesn't have a selfie camera. It needs a selfie camera in tablet mode, in this mode:
Add this ones and I will definitely buy it.
vanesa2, 03 Aug 2019The biggest negative about anyt Folding screen phones is that as an example this Huawei mate x... moreThere's another problem with this Huawei. Unlike the Samsung Galaxy Fold, it folds outwards. So basically, you are using half of the screen to fold the phone to the back. Imagine what would happen if you dropped that phone.
For once, I really do applaud Samsung for taking a rather more practical approach with the little screen when folded. It might look ugly, but at least the screen inside it wouldn't be hurt too much.
The biggest negative about anyt Folding screen phones is that as an example this Huawei mate x makes it look cheap on the screen. The screen has too much reflection and it looks like a plastic screen. The device looks cool But the screen isn't so cool. Too much plastic making it the obvious thing that most people will begin to complain about soon.
That is the most annoying part of a folding screen such as MATE X. Even the Samsung model has the same problem. Making both phones look like a toy. And annoying unable to view the screen properly if outdoors because the so much reflection all over the screen. Considering it is plastic and not hard glass screen.
At this moment i don't bother buying the device because of the screen would be annoying. The reflection would be the most annoying and the screen touched wont feel nothing like hard glass screen. Taking note of that one.
