Our Huawei Mate Xs 2 video review is now out

Huawei is still around, despite the very damaging sanctions it has had to deal with for a few years now, and it releases a limited number of phones each year, focusing on the mid-range nova line as well as foldables. The Mate Xs 2 is of the latter category and gives us an exciting glimpse of what could have been one of the Galaxy Z Fold3’s main competitors if it had been able to play 5G and use the Play Store.

We recently wrapped up our in-depth written take on the top foldable from the embattled Chinese company, and today we’re also bringing you the video version of the review. As usual, it aims to be concise but still incredibly informative, giving you all the important information about the device without going into every nook and cranny.

The Mate Xs 2 is definitely priced on the high end, and when you pair that with the lack of Google services and the lack of 5G, it’s going to be a pretty tough sell for most. And yet we enjoyed reviewing it because it has an eerie air of “what might have been” if the story was different.

It has a unique and interesting form factor that folds in the opposite way to what the competition does, and needs a smaller screen in the process – while also basically feeling like a slightly thicker regular smartphone when it’s closed. Oh, and the cameras are great too. On the other hand, the battery life is quite poor and the screen is very exposed all the time, so durability can be an issue.
