Don't no what to say about this new first fordable screen mobile phone. Just looks a little bit more of a gimmick like some have claim. I believe your just basically paying more just because it is a fordable screen. But the specs will decently be no different then any traditional android mobile phone in today's market. So perhaps be aware of that before you really want to spend on something that isn't going to be a complete change other then just a basic fordable screen.
If you get bored quickly with your other traditional phones you just brought before.. You will too be bored with this Huawei Mate X as well quickly or eventually.
These fold-able screens really needs to improve much better then what your seen today, Early days yet. I agree with some of you users that the screen looks cheap looking.. Just special plastic impaired into a phone. Quickly to be scratched if your not too careful course i haven't seen no screen protectors been invented or made as yet for a foldable phone and if you can't find any of that in the market yet... expect to take care of your new MATE X carefully course quickly it might end up been scratch and you might end up been disapointed that you can't return the phone back if you where to scratch the screen or damage it from heavy use and constantly .
I reckon it is not good to rush into so desperately wanting a fold-able phone. They are here to stay and there will be more options out into the market eventually one after another model. Because i bet you that many people around the world will eventually be very disappointing feeling that having a traditional latest android phone would be MUCH more manageable and far more comfortable to use everydays and all the times. The fold-able screen phone just... looks more a bit like a mini tablet screen but without the wide screen looks. (depending how you want to view it from)
I also agree that all they doing is add a higher price for nothing a higher price for just a fold-able screen that is a plastic folding screen. Note: It isn't glass screen and glass screen can't be fold-able (maybe one-day) But not yet anyways.
So my opinion is why bother be excited when half we know is nothing much about the phone specs to be true. Also why bother wait when you can get the latest Huawei android phones. I can not imagine anything big change from a fold-able screen. It will just be the same specs as any original phone but only change is that it's just basically a fold-able plastic screen and perhaps drain it's battery quickly which might be annoying to most of us.
So until there is more foldable screens then at this stage there is Samsung and Huwei but it's too early and usually first foldable screens ever been release will aventually be bad phones.. Just like new technology that comes out. Huawei and Samsung are independently alone in the making of each own fold-able screens and that it is new so.. It is what it is for the meantime as i wrote this. If all companys such as OPPO and LG, Windows phone and other brands then i presume there will be a much better understanding with fold-able screens and much better spectrum when it comes adding up. But for now its small. I can't possibly think that Mate X will be any BIG change... It will still be the same as a traditional phone and all your looking at is a fold-able screen but nothing much else is change if unless they added a million GB of ram and so on then i guess that is a different question or if the fold-able screen is steady and strong touched screen. Instead of plastic and soft touched which may end up feeling as it your pressing the screen too hard killing the ink that is inside the screen whatever you want to call that.
The Mate X might simply feel too soft touched on screen due to been a plastic screen. Take note at that. When you touch a remote control tv that has a small LCD screen... mostly these remote control tv with a tiny screen display are actually plastic. When you press the screen... it will feel as though your actually sinking the the screen making it as if the stuff your looking on the screen is "smear" at the point of touched. As that would easily damage the viewing point of a screen eventually it might kill it and not only it might end up pixelated :) but might look greyish implemented marks on a screen from touching the screen so much. Because it is plastic. Not Glass which means Glass is stronger and you can easily touch the screen without a problem and not damaging the vivid colour your looking at on screen or damage the screen as plastic will indeed make the screen eventually smear.. You get my point. So like you and like me we are all sceptical and though i wouldn't bother with the waiting for so what excitement phone. These fold-able phones are here to stay so it's not the end of the world. Your traditional phone of today is much enough advance then you can think of. Not just from a basic fold-able screen made of plastic screen. Seriously.
So not sure what is the fuzz about a foldable screen. My 32 inch sizes curved monitor computer is good enough haha. ill spend my money on a lifetime travel overseas... course phone will make me brain dead.
It is posible that the Samsung and Huawei to be release on sale into the market quickly next month August. Samsung foldable phone around 14th of aug while the Huawei mate x to be release to the market around 21/22th of Aug. So all dates are about 1 week diferences and this is a references. (Not the September release as people claim)
Middle of Aug is what you would expect. And these who say (there has been a delay on both company phones for the foldable screens) is actually not true. You see Huawei may already indeed made more then 5.000+ and more Mate X already been packaing in the box with it's essentials. If for some reason there was a delay on such thing then they would have to take out more then 5.000+ more Mate x phones out of the box to fix everything up to sqaure one. And that isn't posible.
Huawei already made it clear and also made it totally aware of any virus and any potiential issues with the screen prior before packaing them. The packaing them all and more yet to make where packeged months ago. That's how long it takes to package 5.000 + more phones into each box with it's essentials. It takes aprox 2 months or so from the factory.
So there is no need for Huawei to unpacke everhting again just to re-fix something.. if that was to happen then the Huawei mate X phone will defently not be reliease into the market for another 2 or 4 months time. So that isn't going to happen because Huawei is in the beat with Samsung as competitor wars... Huawei doesn't want to delay its technology for consumers.. It is why Huawei wants to be number 1 leaders in the world not to let Samsung beat first.
So think again... if there was a delay it would have to be the screen and its features... Huawei would had fix that pruior before packging and all the test requierement months and months ago before creating them and testing them before packing them. It takes months to make the phones and to package each one carefully in its own boxes with the essentuials.. If for some reason there was a indeed delay on allready made mate x phones then this means the phone can not be release anytime soon and not even Septemeber.. it would take months later. So that i don't believe so. That's how long it really takes to make many copy phones and thats how long it takes as well to packing them. I do beleive Huawei already have Most more then 5.000 Mate x already packaged in each box. So it be pointless to un-do everything again otherwise there be a big delay and there for Huawei will be frustrated not catching up. So people have to be careful what they saying... Companys such as Huawei always test the phone for sometime... folding them 1000 times.. checking to see if there is anything missing and requiers more hardware and software fixing PRIOR before packing. Thats how company's works. Otherewise it be a bad company if they didn't fix and test things BEFORE it was pack in it's box So now u know and you can asure to relax about that as no delay is required. We have the best technology as far as we know as of i wrote this. However.... i do know Samsung will release the phone first before Huawei does.. But it wouldn't make much of a differences between the 2 competitors... After all one releases first week before the other releases a week later. But i do believe Mate X will be much winner from consumers.. Mainly because it does look slightly modern from todays standard compare to the Samsung making it quickly looking old fashionable piece of device. You select which is better!
Hello there folks.
I agree as well. I wouldn't want to pay well over 2000 dollars just for a mobile phone that has a foldable screen.
I agree that at that price if the camera itself doesn't feture the same as Huawei p30 pro with the 50x zoom or greater then this Mate X will of couse be useless and just a gommik at this stage.
If im going to be paying that much i do expect to have a good zoom. Not just 10x zoom. Because any traditional phone already have 10x zooms and most of the traditional phones don't cost as much as this Mate x.
Basically your just paying more mainly because of the foldable screen that does indeed look plastic. (Not glass screen)
Of course people would expect this expensive and first Huawei foldable to do much more then just a foldable screen itself. You would expect good camera optional. Zoom would be essential but it be silly to say it would just have a 10 or 15x zoom. When you can get the Huawei P30 pro with a 50x zoom and the phone isn't as expensive as this foldable Huawei mate x.
I believe from all the frustration most people are is that we are just waiting to play with the phone... But the truth comes out onces its available so we will see what more it can do other then just a foldable screen.
Because i do believe that aventually after i have used this Mate x.... all im going to end up is getting bored with just a foldable screen made of plastic screen and that i would notice that i would rather have better features.... Zoom is essential for photo shots and video recording and stereo sound speakers rather then speakers a the bttm of the screen.
So.. What do you think? Do you think yet at this stage foldable screen(s) such as Huawei mate x is worth it or... perhaps wait the next 2 years or so to see more optionals in the market as it is rather early stages and usually first new technology coming out will aventually get old and outdated looking devices.. (Think of the first Iphone that came out in 2007 or something like that and how tiny the phone really was..... It quickly in only less then 2 or 4 years after that and the first iphone that came out was useless because it was tiny while 2 or 4 years later down the track iphones became far greater and much bigger screen sizes.
So if you can compare that with the first new Huawei mate x foldable screen... perhaps in the next 2 or 4 years from now as we speak... may as well be that the Mate X be rather outdated looking device because it may look plastic screen and other things... while 2 or 4 years from now foldable screen(s) would be far much greater and better then the first one that came out.
However that is my opinion at this stage im curiosity and want to try out the Mate x.... Just like i did when i was curiosity to try out the first iphone that came out into the market some years ago... But i did quickly notice 2 years later Apple wasn't my thing and i end up Android with a bigger screen phones.... So perhaps if i was to buy the Android Huawei mate X today (once it comes out into the market) i might eventually get bored with it or i might eventually not like it in 2 years time or less and end up wanting to buy something much advance or bigger type foldable screen phone instead. Just like it would go with the same with the first iphone that came out.. Which in fact i hate and destroy Apple as i am not a fan. I am a Android lover and so do you :).
Last and all... I would not want to pay too much just because it might only be of the foldable screen. If im going to pay that much today (at the time i wrote this 2019) i would expect the Huawei mate x phone to do MUCH more then just a folding screen. And i believe everybody after all would agree with me on that. Specially like ive state in relation to the Camera... Not much zoom or it does on the Mate x ? Will see but if it doesn't have the best camera zoom as an example option then i would rather wait for a better newer foldable screens in the near future.. Because at that higher price as of 2019 you expect the phone to have greater camera features... Otherwise you be fool to pay too much for just a phone that has a foldable screen which looks dodgy and plastic from my opinion. Will see :)
You might end up saying well im laughing in 2 or so years from now.. and say... well the first ever foldable screen was so plastic and stupid.... Because in the future doldable screens will be far better then the first one that came out. Just saying if i could see myself saying that in the future. Just like from a SD flat screen tv in 2008 to a far better 8K flat screen today. See the diferences. Now im laughing why i spend 4.000 dollars on a SD HD flat screen tv when i have a better 8K tv. But then again it might as well go on with the same from 8k to perhaps a 12k. I can't keep up with technology from VHS recorders to 4K ULTRA dvd recorders.....
Well what can i say that's my story for now and i do expect Huawei mate x to be a good hit. i mean if i was to select Samsung first foldable screen vs the first Huawei mate X foldable screen phone i would indeed select the MATE X because it looks far more advance looking compare to the Samsung making it look like it might quickly end up outdated old fashionable looking device in just less then 2 years time which doesnt look modern.. Just looks thick and small screen from the front folded part of the screen making it soon to be the worst Samsung foldable screen if you where to see yourself looking at that phone in 2 or 4 years from now.
So at this stage Huawei Mate x wins due to the thin screen phone looking device + bigger screen sizes with 80% no frames around it.
So long folks :)
If you cant afford it. Just like any traiditonal phone. Why not go on a contract by your phone provider. That is if your phone network provider will have the mate x or not. One thing im skeptical is that the screen looks cheap and the feeling might not be as what you expected.. It might just feel plastic.. Try doing that touch any plastic and feel the differences. It wont be glass because you cant bent glass. Plastic will. But plastic will be scratch far quickly to anything. Look at anything flat plastic touched and see how scratch it is over time. Thats why im skeptical about this new technology. After all all your looking is nothing unusual other then a foldable screen made of plastic which might feel like a toy. But caution on the feel of the screen and the quickly how it might be scratched at anything from your nails to putting the phone in your pocket which rubs the material against the screen. I think the whole foldable phone(s) is a gimmick for the meantime until they come up with a much stronger un-scratcable screen. In the long run it will be better then the first one that came out which is this. Reviewing videos.. notice the reflection against the screen. It might bother many people. Go outdoors and if the sun reflect it or any light around the screen will be far too unclear to view from your naked eye to the screen if it was to look at the screen from left or right side of the screen directly. Far too much reflection which obviously you see the differences.. (special plastic implemented on a foldable screen) Not as strong feel and might bother some people. Also the feel might not be stability nor strong feel to the finger against the screen... Because it is not glass screen like traditional phones.
The Specs has just came out to social media. However im still trying to figure out does this foldable phone has zoom for photo/video on camera settings? Huawei P30 pro has a 50x zoom but i wonder if the MATE X has the same or greater considering this phone will cost far more.. And to see if its worth it or not. Too much of how many pixels does the camera contain but doesn't mention how many zoom does each lens does for taking photos and video recording. Someone might know yet?
2300$ ?!!!!! wooooow
huawei is crazy. thanks, but i prefer buy a OP7 and save my money
Huawei honor 10, 01 Jun 2019I'd take this over that galaxy fold but with that Google ban. Never would happen. :/You are right.
Imagine this (initial priced 1500euros+++) to hit just 800+++ euros range.
It may very well kill off US manufacturers as well as Korean makers like Samsung to recreate something of this caliber and at that pricing without any repercussions.
Dun forget, trade ban is one stupid move made by a more developed country whose exchange rates is so much higher and based against.
If the Chinese wanted to kill off US in the trade ban dispute, they can just slash this at a damn attractive sales price to kill off Apple, Samsung or any other from coming close with their new OS or other out there in the market on par with Google capabilities.
GG Google, iOS and US.
I'd take this over that galaxy fold but with that Google ban. Never would happen. :/
This is definitely my next phone.. no rivals can match up to it! Even if it does not support android due to Trump's personal business matters, I'm ready to test a new os like tizen or firefox on this device.
niki, 29 May 2019Huawei is better and so fast...........iphone always drain battery problem ,also too slowCorrect. I use 3 time's of iPhones, already have an badly drain battery. Next year I'll use huawei.
