Huawei Mate Xs hands-on and key features

by birtanpublished on August 25, 2020

Everyone last year the race for foldable phones began many of the first iterations were fragile expensive and really experimental my favorite foldable had never made it to the market it was Huawei's mate X now Chloe has had a year to refine their design and it'll be

Interesting to see what they've changed and what they've kept I'm Angie for GSM marina and this is a hands-on of the Hawaii mates XS

First glance the design of the made XS isn't too different from the original it still has the same falconwing design as before and you close it up it can even pass as a standard smartphone I'm still a fan of the form factor because it

Gives you something to grip onto when the phone is open and it allows for there to be almost no space between the panel's when the excess is closed the button that lets you pop up in the phone seems different and the mechanism is

Slightly smoother the sides have some new coding and it's more slippery than last year but the back is made of the same material it's still ridiculously light and when you open it up there's the same unique square form factor that

Makes much of media consumption a breeze well sixteen by nine videos still have huge bars on the side but that's unavoidable the eight inch OLED screen itself looks bright and has nice colors whether it's open to full capacity or

Isn't a smaller six point six inch folded state in this sense it's great that things haven't changed much now Huawei has said that the top sheet is a two layer polymer structure for added strength but they haven't confirmed

Whether this is a new addition to the phone or if this was how it was last year you'll still feel the bend in the screen and weena tilt it towards the light you can spot the crease but it's much less noticeable than before there

Is a pre applied screen protector that the phone ships with but it makes the display feel slicker and honestly it makes the phone look less elegant then without it the whole thing would be difficult to put in a case but even so I

Really recommend getting whatever Huawei is gonna be offering because even with the design revision and the protector the display is still very fragile then use our cone ium based hinge looks like two pins have been shoved down the sides

Of the phone and it doesn't sound as loud as before when you open and close it well not entirely silent it no longer feels like you're breaking the excess that said we were able to see it would look like the backside of the screen or

Some hinge mechanics peeking through and even though it supposedly allows for cooling it's unnerving on a phone that costs more than a new 16 inch MacBook Pro the mate excess has a 4,500 million power battery and supports 55 watt fast

Charging so endurance should be great Chloe has promised 21% more battery life in a heavy usage scenario the phone is powered by the cure in 1990 chipset which supports eight 5g bands so connectivity and speed shouldn't be an

Issue all the same this brings us to one of the phone's biggest weaknesses its software quo is continuing to negotiate with the states in order to be able to use Google services for now you'll have to make do with workarounds like

Watching YouTube in the browser or you can stick to highways newly launched App Store they're really pushing for it but considering you can't use the Instagram app or any app from Google that might be really off-putting to Western consumers

Otherwise it sports Androids hand with EMU i-10 on top the UI itself is better suited to the form factor than before and they've included an app multiplier which allows you to open two apps side-by-side and have one

App floating above them you can also attach files to emails just by dragging and dropping it's still not as intuitive as it should be and I found myself swiping a lot until I got the hang of it so perhaps they can refine it a little

More before release the XS also still has the same keyboard as before so if the phone is open you can't type anything with one hand I found the keyboard options really useful on the Galaxy fold and I think koalas should

Really consider including more the main XS has the same camera setup as before with a 40 megapixel quad be our main shooter an 8 megapixel telephoto and a 16 megapixel ultra wide cam there's also a 3d time-of-flight sensor for better

Depth mapping capabilities there's no front camera here instead you just use the main cameras when the X s is closed which means you get some pretty nice selfies while there are some clear differences and improvements over the

Mate X from last year there is still a ways to go in terms of overall design the phone is still gorgeous still fragile and still extremely expensive at 2500 euros and honestly I have my doubts about his

Durability even if you're extremely careful there's also the matter of Google services and Huawei phones to consider I think it's a taste of the future and if you love gadgets and you have the money to spend it's a really

Interesting product but foldables will need at least another year before they're ready for most users out there thanks for watching if you enjoyed this video hit the like button down below subscribe with belacan and I'll see you
