    I'm using the global model on AT&T with no issues.
    SMS and MMS texting works without issue.
    Calls are loud and clear.
    Getting LTE speeds.
    Camera is outstanding.
    Screen is vivid and bright.

    If you have any questions, just ask.

    IR blaster works just fine. I really never thought I'd use that, but I do all the time now.

    There are no LEDs for notifications on this phone. At first, I was pretty frustrated by this, but it's not an issue now. If you have a smartwatch or activity tracker that's capable of getting notifications, you'll get used to having no LEDs on the phone really quickly. Still, I think it was a bonehead move by Huawei to get rid of them.

    That's a bit ridiculous. Different if they upgraded the AOD to show all notifications then remove the led like LG/Google etc

    Yep, I don't know why they keep their version of AOD so limited.

    My 2 complains of the 20x would be 1) always on display did not display notices for WhatsApp or any app [or is it a setting issue? Would like to hear from anyone who could make it to do it?] 2) my photo album names keep turning off out of a sudden. See pic attached. Would like to hear from any who could tell me it's me, not the phone?

    This is normal for Huawei's Always On Display. It only shows clock/date, calls, sms, music playing and battery. No email or 3rd party notifications can be displayed...much to all our frustration and constant requests for it

    As dov1978 said above, the AOD only displays Huawei's core apps. Bummer, I know.

    As far as the photos app goes, I use Google Photos, and have not had a similar issue as you are having. Are you using the Huawei stock gallery? If so, try using Google Photos.

    Thanks, will give it a try. The other thing about it was that when I changed to default lighter background, the album names came back

    That's strange. Not sure what would cause that. Must be an issue with EMUI handling dark mode.
    Let us know how Google Photos handles the issue if you decide to do that.

    Darkened mode doesn't work on Google photos. It will stay in its default theme.

    You'd need to get the Mate 20 Pro for all that.

    I use Samsung Internet browser on my Mate 20 Pro. These phones come with Google Chrome as default but I always install Samsung Internet with AdBlock Fast.

    I'm in USA so as much as I'd like to it isn't practical to buy one without warranty nor all our bands.

    Just ordered. Have been using a Galaxy Note 8 for a year, and my travel devices have been the Note 8, Galaxy Tab S3 for note-taking in interviews and observations, and a Surface Go LTE as my travel PC (need windows to runs some of the software we use).

    Hoping to reduce my travel devices to 2 (I've found the Note 8 to be a great phone and good for brief notes, but not for the multi-page notes I generate in projects). I still have a Samsung Note 8.0 tablet with LTE which is a great size for the notes in projects, but the Android OS hasn't been upgraded in quite a while, and I still have to carry three devices.

    From the reviews on the Mate 20 X, it seems that I may be able to use it for heavy-duty note-taking. I'm anxiously waiting for the arrival.

    Note taking works great on the M20X. I never thought I'd really use the pen that much, but I use it all the time. It's very accurate. The only thing that bothers me is the fact that it's a stand-alone accessory that cannot be attached to the phone or a case for that matter. It would be nice if someone would make a case with a slide-in slot for the pen.

    Coming from a Note8 you are going to love the Mate 20 X especially for its incredible Battery Life, it will be Night and Day from your Note8.

    I came from a Note8 to a Mate 20 Pro and I have not looked back, the battery life on these Mate 20 devices absolutely obliterates anything done by Samsung so far, I am blown away by how I can leave EVERYTHING On and the phone still gives me +7hours SOT with over 1day of usage.
