    Great to see 2 Asian phone giants competing to create world best foldable phone of future, the only annoying thing is America doing sabotaging works at the side.
    Foldable phone is the future, when China master the technologies behind these phones, expect them to get much cheaper like many products produced in China.

    This video has sold me on folding phones as the future, mainly for being able to use the high end camera to take better, higher quality selfies.
    Samsung and others need to advertise that feature; If they do folding phones will blow the hell up!

    I kind of get the point of the wedge design but it's just a really stupid design choice.
    Why would you hold the phone with only your right hand? Is that how people even hold their phones these days?
    Even on my normal 6.5 inch phone I have to hold it in my left hand and operate it with my right index finger when it's in a horizontal position. I basically form a sort of stand with my left hand. It's hard to use with one hand even when it's vertical. Plus at 200g it's really heavy so I can't hold it with one hand for too long or my wrist starts to hurt. I thought the idea with these things was to have a phone on the outside and a folding tablet on the inside that you operate with a pen or something. I don't even get the point of the models with screens folding on the outside. And shouldn't the thicker part of the wedge be on the left side instead? Why is it even on the right?
    And that old Galaxy Fold had a bad screen on the outside? Who cares? It's just there so you see the dialer app and texts and stuff like that. You can just open the tablet inside if you want to read a mail or look at Google Maps. I'd rather have a small screen on the outside and not consume as much battery but that's just me.
    I'd rather have a phone/tablet thing with more battery and an even weight on both sides. The rocking on the table issue would get really annoying really fast too. Also people that are left handed could use it just as easily, as others have already pointed out.
    Anyway that's just my two cents.

    You forgot about the free spy software AND the ban on google apps including the google play store. Seems pretty fishy a big YouTuber would forget to mention stuff like that for potential buyers.

    The wedge shape lol. Phone too heavy? Yikes. What if the person always holds their phone with their other hand? They have to use it upside down? Otherwise the phone feels extra heavy? Someone got stoned and came up with that feature lol.
    Phone looks really solid. I will say the narrow screen on the fold 2 has actually been something I really like compared to my old smartphones. I was always getting big ass screens that make one handed operation difficult. On the fold 2 I can reach everything except for shit at the very top so easily with one thumb. Reminds me of my phones from way back in the day.

    Is the world really that stupid to embrace Chinese tech and its products after all they've done to the world? Huawei was built to spy on people - you damn know that and want to deny it. With all the data and intel China got, they spread their bioweapon most lethal - covid19. We all lost our friends and relatives to Covid. Yet you still support China?? Don't be too liberal that someone comes and shoves something up your ____ and you stand there looking dumb doing nothing.

    So not for left hand people then?
    All the weight distributed to the right hand side. For those of us holding with the left the weight would have been better evenly distributed.
    Of course I'm aware that screen probably rotates so can be held upside down for us lefty's, but that leaves us with our hands all over the cameras.

    They put the weight into the right hand, but when it's open like that, must people will hold it with with their left hand, and use their right hand to point. They made the issue double as worse. Well, not for the left handed people. Perfect phone for them.

  • DarkNightDreamer

    I like the size of the screens compared to my Z fold 2, and the cameras. Not sure why Sammy didn't stick their best cameras in their most expensive phone. If you are going to spend the money for one of these phones the extra bit for the best camera package is probably not a big deal to you. Unfortunaly for Huawei, no google services makes pretty much anything they make dead on arrival in the US, if they are even still sending phones here at all.

  • WatsNu2Day


    Pirms Mēneša

    Who would e thought that device has appreciated 2x or 3x its worth. People are buying this at $3,000-$5,000 now...the camera and large front screen makes it better than fold 2, but not Google compliant unless you side load it and its not stable even if you do.

    the zfold2 is so thick you WANT the less-wide outer screen. if the make it as big as normal phones it would be impossible to use! Right now the best phone form factor to one hand is the folded Zfold2 ironically
    The x2 would be impossible to use when folded since it is so thick and so wide.

    But mate x2 is looking too ugly when its fold too wide, fold should always b narrow because we already have a bigger screen inside , fold should also b pocket size friendly , fold 1 size was best for me just it had too much bezels but now fold is going ridiculous, hope samsung dont do it

    The USA have absolutely no reason to block Huawei's access to Android etc. If at least they'd be honest enough and admit it's a move in their trade war with China, but instead they lie and say it's for the safety of US consumers. What BS!

    Wouldn't be surprised if this folding phone thing will only ever remain a temporary fad no one ever takes seriously and its simply getting replaced by something like AR augmented glasses that pair with your phone and when you look down on your phone and the phone recognizes you gazing at it has the glasses project a folded out, and thus larger image on top of the phone - Maybe without the phone even displaying its contents anymore as a privacy feature.
