Another down side for the "selfie cam" implementation is on making video calls. You use the smaller screen portion. Especially Zoom meetings with 6 or more people, it would be not so pleasant experience.

If you're out on a frozen lake and it begins to crack, get down on your hands and knees so that your body weight is spread out instead of being concentrated at your feet. That way, there is less chance of you falling through the ice.
Mate Xs's design is definitely better than Fold (IMO Fold is more like a folded tablet).. But its durability is questionable.. I don't think Fold is any better as well..
Not at all interested in such expensive phone from expansionist country with a spying chip..there are many more beautiful phones out there and they run run google..which huawei cant..bye bye huawei
just wait till xiaomi and oppo enter the game, we will see quick price drops. although i can easily afford the Xs or galaxy fold, i'll wait for some time to see the development of other brands and improved durability. I often go to the beach and my phone must survive sand.
"I wish it was lighter, then again that problem goes away when you open it up because now the same weight is spread out over far larger surface area."
This author doesn't know how physics works. He is talking about pressure, which has nothing to do with holding a heavy phone in your hand.
do not know if it was the

instead of being arogant and jealous try to express your opinions in a more polite manner.
The enthusiasts and rich are tired of the rectangular slab shape and want some novelty, what's the harm. These people replace their phones in months if not weeks.
Normal people would be more interested in durable options that can last them at least 2 years. I say we bring back the Asus Padfone. That device in 2020 would be an instant hit, where we have overpriced smartphones and nonexistent tablets. Or one that fits into a thin and light laptop case.
Sometimes we need to bring back old ideas that were too early for their times and reinvent.
i used a samsung flagship phone once, now i don't want to use a samsung phone
your article makes you so skin deep, spending thousands buck for that foldable device, i do have a feeling that you are holding a “plastic toy”. 🙄
Is it expensive, yes.
Do I miss the Google Play Store, not as much as I thought I would.
This phone is phenomenal and full of geeky goodness that I've come to appreciate.
Also, it's put up with my rough handling and daily usage of it for over after two months.
Don't let the whole fold-able screen thing fool you, this may be the most durable phone I've owned to date.
My only complaint is the same with too many new phones, no expandable memory but I haven't maxed out the 512 GB of space yet so we'll see.
This is the future. U sour grapes will nitpik until Apple comes out with one 3 years late n claim it’s the best thing ever!
Huawei is just too awesome. Why u r jealous n u know it.
i want this phone soooo badly...!!!!!!
This sounds good, but it's missing:
- Durability and a good 3 year lifespan
- Actual glass screen (logistically it doesn't work of course, but still)
- headphone jack (for me)
- a decent price, not sub 300$ of course, but sub 1000$
- a good battery life
- and if I wanna nitpick, slightly higher refresh rates and stereo speakers
Until then, for a "phone" this is no better than the iPad mini, which was already of dubious existence. But let's hope this will all come in due time, before the world dies from pollution and all other problems!
