    Since the Galaxy Fold will probably not release until June, is anyone going to take a second look at the Mate X? That releases in June too......

    Definitely not. We already guessed this screen tech is fragile. Having it on the outside seems like a terrible idea. Also it's way more expensive, and doesn't have video calling/selfie cam in the tablet mode. If it was the same price then I'd consider it if they had some clever case design that gave it more protection and let it flip open easily.

    Latest I saw was that the Mate X was releasing this fall, Samsung will probably still be out first with the Fold, but who knows.

    Huawei can at least learn a few things that went wrong with Samsung's launch and make adjustments.

    But yeah, nearly 3,000 dollars after taxes? Good luck with that.

    I had a play with the Mate X and was blown away by how incredible it was, so yeah, if it could come down on price, that's the Foldable I'd go for.

    Mate X has leather case that comes with the phone in the packaging, it was showcased at its announcement.

    The case looks good. I missed that the first time around. It's still too expensive for me. I would love to go there but I burned a lot of marital Goodwill with the fold. I don't think it will extend another 700.

    Not sure what to think but the p30 pro is awfully enticing if I'm going off topic.

    The Fold design appears to be better from a screen longevity perspective in that folding in subjects the screen to less damage from scratches. The "crease" would seem less likely to become wider or more pronounced.

    It would seem that folding out would not only be susceptible to damage especially if dropped but depending upon the screen material could create a more pronounced crease the width of the device almost like a hump right down the middle of the display.

    The hinge appears less elegant than the Fold. Also, if the Fold pricing makes you pause, the Mate X is $600+ more than the Fold. Drop the Mate X once and well over $2k is down the tubes not to mention that Huawei will probably be shipping entirely new devices instead of repairing one, something that could dinge profitability.

    I guess for clumsy type people but I always just have my phone facing my leg in my pocket and have no issues with scratches what-so-ever.

    With the screen on the outside and just imagining potential impact points, the Mate X could suffer catastrophe damage. I too carry my GS10+ face in with a Pelican Shield case. There really isn't a case for the phone in the traditional sense. It is probably going to be in a pouch or wallet case if that is at all possible.

    It comes with a case that seems like it would protect it from damage.

    Heck no. Screen is fully exposed, lending itself to scratches, and the uneven pressure application which iFixit says will destroy an OLED screen. The case it comes in looks pretty neat, until you realize...dust and pocket lint will certainly sneak in between it and the screen.

    I'm very interested, always have been, I prefer it's design.
    I am sure they are learning from the news and thus may delay its release too.
    Reviewers have been handling the Mate X for months.

    I look forward to seeing it in person one day. Alas its out of my league in price for now.

    The Huawei case looks counter intuitive. Not a fan of the Mate X design. Samsung's implementation still looks better to me.

    Lol, this is exactly what people are forgetting, the Mate X has been out in people's hands for a long time, Huawei were smart they let regular people get hold of it including me, they used this as an opportunity to test and see how it could hold up. In most countries where Huawei exist they have Mate X devices out in the wild in multiple versions and states of build.

    At the P30 Pro launch locally the head of Huawei products here in SA had a Mate X with him on stage that he had been using for a while, he didn't showcase it but he used it quite a bit before talking and even when sitting down, seems it's his daily driver.

    People are also forgetting that the Mate X will come with a Case out the box.

    If I were interested in a folding phone I'd be looking at the new Razr not the Mate.

    I really like the concept of a folding device. That said, I prefer the folding screen to be inward facing regardless of manufacturer. There are some aspects of the Mate X design I do like. But, I will likely not be looking at the X because:

    -Outward facing folding screen.
    -Cost of device. I was having a hard time with the cost of the Fold, the X is just too much.

    Cheers,
