The Huawei Mate Xs is still the best foldable phone you can buy, but it’s not perfect Huawei Mate Xs

The Huawei Mate Xs caught my attention when it initially launched as the Mate X at the start of 2019. Landing at MWC 2019 in Barcelona, Spain, the foldable phone was famously displayed behind glass, with hands-on opportunities hard to come by – and I, unfortunately, didn’t manage to try it out.

Originally slated to go on sale in June 2019, it was delayed until November and ended up only being available in China, scuppering my attempts to get hands-on with the most exciting foldable around.
