When Huawei announced its latest flagship smartphones, that is, the Mate 20 smartphones, we all knew we were in for a treat of humongous smartphones. Out of all the smartphones announced, the biggest regarding appearance is the Huawei Mate 20 X.

Huawei Mate 20 X is not only the biggest in shape, but it’s also the largest with regards to battery life. Let me digress a little: Huawei announced the Mate 20 RS Porsche Design as the ritzier edition of the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. This Huawei Mate 20 Porsche Design is only different from the Mate 20 Pro due to its leathery composition and a glass bearing the cameras at the rear.

Back to today’s focus, Huawei Mate 20 X will be analysed properly as we proceed.

Huawei Mate 20 X Quick Review

Let’s put aside the gaming aspect, Huawei Mate 20 X supports something new called the M-pen stylus. This M-pen feature makes Huawei look like they’re directly trying to compete with the Samsung Note flagships.

The phone can sense 4,096 levels of pressure from the pen. However, the M-pen doesn’t come out of the box with the gadget; it has to be purchased separately. Unlike the way Samsung creates a compartment for the S-pen, this phone lacks a specific keep-place for the stylus.

Now, to the gaming qualities, the all-new Kirin 980 with ARM Mali-G76 GPU sees to the efficient gaming on the smartphone. Even more, Huawei Supercool is aboard to limit how the heating capacity of the phone during heavy gaming activities. The Supercool advanced cooling system consists of vapour chamber cooling with a graphene film heat spreader.

Dolby Atmos stereo speakers enhance the sound surroundings of the smartphone. The display department of this phone boasts of a large 7.2-inch AMOLED panel with 1080 x 2244 pixels resolution. Additionally, there’s the tear-drop notch that houses the 24MP selfie camera.

Still, about the camera, the triple camera qualities are the same as the Mate 20 Pro: 40MP + 20MP + 8MP. Meanwhile, the phone’s non-removable battery delivers the highest duration amidst all its peer due to its 5,000mAh capacity.
