Samsung Galaxy Fold vs Huawei Mate X

by birtanpublished on September 20, 2020

It looks like 2019 is gonna be the year of the foldable smartphones and the two biggest players right now Sam Singh with the galaxy fold and one way with the mate eggs what's up guys Sofia on super-safe TV and what are the key differences between these two foldable

Devices well let's break them down super sad star now initially we do have different bolts on both of these devices and I describe them as my buddy mr. Mobile likes to say we've got an

Innie and we've got al t da me being the Samsung Galaxy fold and the outie because it falls on the outside the huawei mate X so let's initially talk about the galaxy fold which was announced earlier and that falls on the

Inside so this has a 7.3 inch Infinity flex AMOLED display but it also has a second display which is on the cover and that's four point six inches with one-way meets X you have an eight inch OLED display which falls on the outside

Now when it is folded down it is split into two so you have a six point six inch front display and you have a six point three inch back display which can also be active right so which one of these implementations is better well

It's gonna come down to personal preference there's advantages and disadvantages to both with the galaxy fold the advantage is that you do get an inner display which is protected whenever the device is closed out and

Then you have a glass on the outside you have to remember that glass does not fold so these displays are based on a plastic and of course plastic is gonna scratch much more easily compared to glass so

With the galaxy fold it is gonna be protected at all times whereas with the mate X it is gonna be exposed at all time so when it's going in and out your pocket it is gonna be more easily scratched

Compared to the galaxy fold but the galaxy fold does have a few disadvantages because of this and firstly that is that you're not getting an all screen display on the inside there is a cutout for the cameras also

The outer display on the galaxy fold although it's a separate independent display it is pretty small four point six inches with quite a bit of bezel with the mate X when the device is flat out you have minimal bezels you don't

Have a cut out or anything like that and when the device is folded down and using in one hand you are going to be getting a much larger screen size with munna bezels and the way while we have achieved this is with this sidebar so

This sidebar kind of acts like a handle like a grip when you're holding the device when it's flat out but it also houses the cameras and because of this quite clever design the mate X doesn't need a notch or any cutouts for the

Cameras now one of the things you would have noticed from both of the presentations is that there is visible creases on both of these devices now which one of these is gonna be more visible in day-to-day usage I cannot

Tell you that as yet of course when I've spent some more time with both of these devices in hand I'll be able to tell you but unfortunately this does look like because its first generation technology we will be seeing at least a little bit

Of crease on both of these devices now let's talk about the internals the galaxy phone comes with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor they may also be an exodus version at later point and the mate ax comes with the Kiran 980

Along with the Balan 5000 now in terms of speed and performance both of these are very very fast processors but when it comes to RAM the galaxy fold does have 12 gigabytes of RAM as this 8 gigabytes of RAM on the mate egg so you

Are gonna get more RAM on the Galaxy fold also when it comes to software you've got Android Pi on both of these but you've got one UI on the Galaxy fold and you've got emui on the mates eggs now the thing with the Galaxy fold is

That Samsung have emphasized that they've been working in partnership with Google as well as lots of Android app developers to optimize them for the Galaxy fold and they have also showed of app continuity so continuing apps from

The smaller display on to the larger display but also three app multitasking so you can have three apps open at the same time on the larger display we've only seen two apps open on the mate X and although we have a massive 512

Gigabytes of storage on both devices the Galaxy fold does come with ufs 3.0 storage so this is much faster twice as fast as current generation so it does get the advantage of all in terms of speed and optimization of course this

May change as time goes on when apps get more optimized on the mate X as well but based on what we've seen so far it looks like Samsung have utilized the displays a little bit more compared to what way under mates eggs

Now let's talk about the cameras so we've got a total of three cameras on the mates eggs on the Galaxy fold we have a total of six cameras now let's break these cameras down so on the mate X we have a similar setup to what we've

Got on the mate xx pro so that's a regular angle of view camera with 40 megapixels then we've got an ultra wide at 16 megapixels and then we've gone a megapixel telephoto camera which is gonna give you optical zoom

But the Galaxy forward you also have a triple camera setup similar to what we've got on the s10 so that's a regular 12 megapixel and also wired at 16 megapixels and a telephoto at 12 megapixels but then we also have a

Single front-facing camera when the device is closed we have two cameras when the device is open one of these is a front-facing camera and then we've got a depth sensor as well so lots of cameras here now in terms of the camera

Quality of course we'd have to put them side-by-side but something really interesting on the mate X is that we don't have any front-facing cameras and the reason for that is you can actually use the rear-facing cameras as

Front-facing cameras because of the way the device folds so the back display can be used for selfies so you can actually see yourself using the rear-facing cameras now this is really interesting because rear-facing cameras are usually

Much better than front-facing cameras not only that because you have it display in the back if you're taking pictures of somebody else then they're also going to be able to see themselves on the back screen of them a 20x and I

Gotta say this is a very very cool implementation and I cannot wait to test it out so you do get a few advantages here on the mate's X when it comes to the camera setups now as far as you can see neither of these devices have a 3.5

Mm jack unfortunately and when it comes to the batteries both devices are using a dual battery solution one battery on either side of the fold and we do get an overall a larger battery size in the May sex now usage obviously will vary we're

Not sure exactly how long each of these will last you will be powering more on the mate X because it has a larger display and it also has a larger display when the device is closed with the Galaxy fold you'll only be powering the

Larger display when you've got it open the smaller display is no doubt going to be taking up much less power but of course this is gonna vary and depend on lots of different factors one of the advantages of the

My ex does have is that we've got one weighs 55 watt supercharged now this is pretty insane what we're claiming that you can get up to 85% of charge in just 30 minutes that's crazy and even if you don't get

The advertised value because that's the absolute maximum even getting around 70 75 percent in half an hour is absolutely awesome these speeds all that the galaxy fold unfortunately nowhere near that but as far as we know there is no wireless

Charging on the mate X the galaxy fold however does seem to have wireless charging and you can also use wireless power share so we've seen in a video from Samsung that you can charge other devices using your Galaxy fold this is

Something as far as we know is not available on the mate X finally let's talk about pricing so Samsung have said the galaxy fold is gonna be starting at nineteen hundred and eighty dollars and it's gonna be available from the 26th of

April so coming very very soon the mates X is gonna be starting at around 2300 euros which comes in quite a bit higher compared to the Galaxy fold and the release is also gonna be later what we have said mid 2019 we're not sure of a

Specific date as yet now do bear in mind that this price is for the 5g Edition which the mate X is going to be in by default when the Galaxy fold as far as we're aware there is going to be a regular version as well as a 5g version

So we're not sure exactly what the price of the 5g version is gonna be and that's everything that we know about the Samsung Galaxy fold and B while we made 2x so far what do you guys think of both of these devices and which one would you

Go for definitely drop me a comment below and let me know your thoughts in terms of my opinions I'm liking both of these I like both implementations and I cannot wait to spend more time with these I think it's great to see

Innovation in this area and you have to remember that these are first generation products so although they might not be perfect they will be getting better over time and as a tech enthusiast I am super super excited of course as

Soon as these devices are in the studio we'll be doing lots of coverage super-safe star if you want to see all of that first then make sure you have subscribed and hit a notification bell so you don't miss anything I hope you

Enjoyed this video and found it useful if you did then do hit that thumbs up on for me thanks for watching this staphon super sassy V I'll see you next time
