Coming a few months after the rest of the Mate 20 series phones, but considered by most to be the best phone in the family, the Mate 20 X is finally entering the market, offering new screen capabilities you might not have expected.
Better late than never, as the old saying goes. The Mate 20 X was one of the most interesting smartphones in this series, but it never saw the light of day except for a few countries in Southeast Asia. This was the case until recently.
What we liked about the Huawei Mate 20 X:
- large screens
- best cameras
- fastest processors
- powerful batteries
- stylus M-Pen from Huawei
- giant OLED screen
Full HD is not what we would call “best”, but it is if you are a gamer. Above all else, the Mate 20 X has been truly praised for its potential gaming capabilities. The user can even select a dedicated hardware controller for a more immersive gaming experience.
