The Apple iPhone XS Max houses a 6.5-inches screen whereas Galaxy Note 9 comes with 6.4-inches Samsung Galaxy Note 10 is most likely to bear bigger screen.

The biggest 7.2-inches screen is actually the main selling point of Mate 20 X – promises users dazzling smartphone experience you won’t find anywhere else. Wait! There is a gigantic battery that matches the display size – powering it with 5000mAh non-removable battery which is again a hefty battery in a smartphone so far. Let’s explore more in our Huawei Mate 20 X review below.

Release Date and Price

The official Huawei Mate 20 X release date was 16 October 2018 and landed on shelves in Australia after November 1st, 2018.

Screen and Body

The first and foremost thing you will feel while looking at Huawei Mate 20 X is its hugeness. Packed with a whopping and eye-catching 7.2-inches AMOLED screen with a Full HD+ resolution of 2244 x 1080 Pixels. The borders of Mate 20 X, on the other hand, are extremely narrow and gives 87.6% screen-to-body ratio. Moreover, these narrow borders give users a unique advantage while playing games as compared to traditional tablets. It has better controllability as well, thanks to its border which doesn’t occupy too much space.

The rear case “matrix lens” is an iconic element of Huawei Mate 20 X – a Flash and Leica Triple-camera are arranged in a square shape. Based on Huawei, it’s inspired by 4-eye car lights of Porsche 919.  And because of the large size of a fuselage, 20 X’s rear cover adopts the biggest arc design and while holding in a hand, the curvature of the entire body is highly close to your palm with a full grip.


Very much like Huawei P20 Pro, Huawei uses a Leica Triple-camera design in most of its top-notch models and interestingly Mate 20 X is no exception. Coming with 40MP (wide) + 20MP (ultra-wide) and 8MP (telephoto) sensors holding their position outback. And out front, you’ll see a solid and gorgeous 24MP FaceTime sensor for making video calls and selfies with your nearest and dearest.

Talking about camera performance, Mate 20 X adds a bunch of more scene recognition as well as more powerful tuning effects and solid image recognition capabilities. Therefore, if someone isn’t really good in photographing, he can shoot “big movies” via Mate 20 X.


Most important of all, it’s backed by the first batch of the 7-nanometer process chip of Kirin 980. It also features extraordinary smooth and powerful performance and, of course, long battery life. Simultaneously, a dual-core NPU design makes it greatly improve AI performance.

Coming with HiSilicon Kirin 980 Chipset – partnered with 6GB of RAM and Mali-G76 MP10 for managing a graphical department quite well. Got 308856 Points in AnTuTu whereas, in Geekbench with the single-core test, it scored 3328 Points and 9602 in the multi-core test. Making a long story short, Huawei Mate 20 X belongs to the first echelon of smartphones around.

The point is, high test scores don’t really necessarily mean that you are having a strong ability to deal with things. So, does it lag when it comes to playing graphics enriched games? The answer is, yes! One will get smooth and flawless performance during multitasking and playing intense 3D games.

Storage and Battery

The Mate 20 X doesn’t arrive with different storage tiers to accommodate your files and other stuff. However, a single variant with 128GB of onboard memory is more than enough to store loads and loads of data with ease. And if you want to take the storage to the next level, use a micro SD card to expand it further up to 256GB.

Onto battery, comes loaded with a 5000mAh non-removable battery which still remains 58% of power after using heavily consecutively four to five hours. That sounds enough to make Huawei Mate 20 X stand out from the competition. Luckily, Huawei added a Quick Charge Feature (4.5V/5A 22.5W) which refuels the tank up to 50% in 30 minutes which means it fully charges a 2500mAh battery in half an hour.

Final Words

The Mate 20 X undoubtedly a great-looking smartphone Huawei has ever manufactured. Having a huge screen with the promise of some meaty gaming capabilities. Adopts a quality-oriented camera from Huawei Mate 20 Pro but pairs that with more subtle dewdrop notch of Mate 20. While playing 3D games, it takes your enjoyment to the next level and a massive 5000mAh amount of battery entertains you all day long even with heavy activities. What’s more, do you want to?
