my first car cost less than what some people will spend on a phone this year— the Original Tweeter™️ (@dcseifert) February 24, 2019
As a company, I think Huawei faces three main challenges: develop brand personality to lead the smartphone space, win the 5G security battle to maintain its innovation leadership in network equipment and convince non-Chinese brands to use its cloud infrastructure. #MWC19 huawei— Thomas Husson (@Thomas_Husson) February 24, 2019
We saw one in a presentation that had a big fat crease down the middle of it from repeated folds and plainly looked like plastic.— David Ruddock (@RDRv3) February 24, 2019
Idk if it was an early prototype or what, but the version we could photograph was at max brightness 100% of the time - no screen off photos allowed.
I may have to sell three kidneys to afford both the Samsung Galaxy Fold and the Huawei Mate X...— Richard Lai (@richardlai) February 24, 2019
if i'm honest with myself, 17yo me would probably have rather had a futuristic smartphone (smartphones didn't exist at all back then!) than a 1990 VW Jetta with a hand crank sunroof— the Original Tweeter™️ (@dcseifert) February 24, 2019
It's interesting that Huawei didn't directly reference the Galaxy Fold when comparing thicknesses. Maybe it's because Samsung has yet to clearly label the dimensions. Regardless, I'm liking the Mate X's slimmer and flatter hinge implementation. pic.twitter.com/og9ysFWT9U— Richard Lai (@richardlai) February 24, 2019
it is quite hilarious to me that the first big companies with folding phones on the market are not exactly known for making good software, which will be crucial to making a good folding phone experience.— the Original Tweeter™️ (@dcseifert) February 24, 2019
Huawei not so subtlety slams "other foldable phone" for the gap you see when it folds down. The #HuaweiMateX has a big handle, but folds flatter, while maintaining a shorter hinge height, Huawei says #MWC2019 #GalaxyFold @CNET pic.twitter.com/xttWJfrQYn— Jessica Dolcourt (@jdolcourt) February 24, 2019
Nobody can touch any of these foldable phones. The software is clearly really bad, as that's the only reason you stop the press from touching your device. That or a vendor (ahem Google) is preventing you from doing so. Hit me up anonymously in DM if you know why— Tom Warren (@tomwarren) February 24, 2019
We weren't allowed to photograph the one that looked all folded up and gross, and Huawei's photo shoot unit was kept at max brightness with the display on.— David Ruddock (@RDRv3) February 24, 2019
I'm guessing it was for a reason.
Every phone is a folding phone if you're strong enough.— Marques Brownlee (@MKBHD) February 24, 2019
Huawei Mate X looks mind-blowingly cool. I honestly thought last year that smartphones wouldn't be able to surprise me anymore. Actually this reminds me of Ja'Red's rolled up computer concept from Fake Steve Jobs https://t.co/CIqk8lRSrX pic.twitter.com/JB7kjfsctA— Eric Migicovsky (@ericmigi) February 24, 2019
Euros 2290 for Huawei Mate X. That is expensive. Also available from mid 2019.— Javed Anwer (@brijwaasi) February 24, 2019
Basically, you can hope to buy a foldable 5G phone some time in 2021.
For now both the Galaxy Fold and the Mate X are beginning of something but no, future hasn't arrived yet.
Oh and a two-part 4,500mAh battery inside the Huawei Mate X. 55W fast charging, too!— Richard Lai (@richardlai) February 24, 2019
do I really trust Samsung and Huawei to figure out this software?— the Original Tweeter™️ (@dcseifert) February 24, 2019
have you ever used first-generation Samsung or Huawei software?
hell, Huawei's latest software is unusable.
