Posted 28th Feb
I posted this the other day for around £609, well its just been reduced by a further £100.

Im seriously tempted by this, and I have no idea why

A Higher Intelligence Is Coming.

The Huawei Mate 20 X is all about delivering high-quality graphics on a stunning large display. With all the features you need to use it as your daily smartphone.

This includes continuing its relationship with Leica. With an amazing Leica triple triple-lens camera that enables you to take stunning pictures.

Not only do you have one of the most detailed and versatile camera arrays in the smartphone industry at your disposal; you can also be among the first to utilise a new technology – Huawei Supercool, the world’s first liquid multi-dimensional cooling system with Vapour Chamber and a Graphene Film.

Huawei's Kirin 980 octa-core processor with 7nm technology is the first of its kind. With a dual NPU (Neural Processing Unit), the Mate 20 X can achieve machine learning and AI efficiencies never seen in smartphone hardware before.

All this performance from a smartphone is incredibly impressive, but you need an equally good display to show off the graphical prowess. In this area, the Huawei Mate 20 X doesn’t disappoint.

It has a stunning state-of-the-art 7.2-inch FullHD+ OLED display with a resolution of 2244 x 1080. It offers an immersive experience, which gamers and video watchers will equally enjoy.

Looks a great price to me. Would have preferred the X to the Mate 20 Pro I got instead 😣
Wow! That's an awesome price for a UK seller. I was literally just looking at Very as they have sent me a 20% off next order code making it £640, that was probably gonna be my tipping point but another £131 cheaper will do me nicely

I've got a mix 3 here, but am tempted to sell to acquire this beast.

Would prefer the screen size increase. Other specs don't make much difference to me as I think camera is the same :/
Got this deal last night on the pro Sold my Mate 20 Pro last week and tried the S9 Plus, which is a fantastic phone but battery life sucks for me and 'Fast' charging is really slow compared to the Mate 20 pro so bought the Twilight Pro off them for the same price...both awesome deals - arriving tomorrow...Another top deal by Mr S

I can't argue about size (in general I don't ) but if you put them next to each other on gsmaresna, I think you will feel better for not choosing the X

Honestly size is the main thing for me. Same camera, same processor, huge battery, huge screen with a tiny notch!

Only thing it's missing is wireless charging (which I can live without) and the fingerprint scanner is insanely fast on the back rather than slower and potentially more temperamental on the front (I've heard both sides from people that say it's fine and people that now only use face unlock as it was that bad).

Tbh i rarely get chance to even use the finger print scanner it unlocks with face so fast
Is this refurbished with box and as new?
Wow I'm thinking about it do I need it that big tho
Doesn't have 20 cameras on the back - I'm out
Ordered but says "awaiting stock" on the tracker hoping that's just a place holder till someone picks it in warehouse tomorrow, otherwise that seems like a dodgy business model "we'll presell the returns..."
I saw this in another thread and ordered, comes with some nice extras I didn't know about

Hope it's in good condition
This or Note 9?
I love my 20 x, best phone I've ever had

The specs the pro has are screen resolution, 3d face unlock, wireless charging and in screen fingerprint. Also has better dust and water resistance and super fast charging.

Mate 20x has the bigger screen, head phone jack, bigger battery and standard fingerprint sensor, face unlock and normal fast charge.

Actual speed of the phone and cameras are same as the pro.

Like the guy answered I wanted the bigger screen over the other features as they aren't things I felt I needed. Never used wireless charging on previous devices so I definitely don't miss that.

Amazing handset for the price.

I got that from my order confirmation
Is this dual sim. Doesn't mention about having the original box and accessories?
I really want the mate 20 pro but I've heard the sound from the speakers is quite low. What do you guys think??
The deal I've soon online is on O2 £32 per month and £185 upfront. I can't afford to pay upfront so it has to be a contract but can't find anything cheaper on O2!

I've got the Pro and to be honest the curved screen is doing my head in. Getting massive reflections from anything nearby and finding screen protectors that work with the in screen fingerprint is not fun. You really need it too as you are so much more likely to smash the screen as it's more exposed than a flat one. I've already smashed 3 screen protectors and the only reason I'm not that fussed is that they were all cheap ones at several quid a piece and only one of them worked really well with fingerprint (but had other issues). I still haven't found the perfect one and I have a stack of them waiting to be tried out once I smash the currently fitted one... I think the Pro also has glass camera elements but is otherwise identical. If the 20X had in screen fingerprint and a higher resolution screen I'd be all over it. Even then, I'd probably go for the 20 X over the Pro if I had to choose now, but the stance that Huawei is taking with the bootloader is the real killer and I'd probably not bother with a Huawei in future. Having said that, even without root, I can do almost everything I want on EMUI9 after some heavy tweaking and it's surprisingly flexible. Still want root though for when they stop updating it and for tasker and theming, and their stance means that the developer community is just not there for the device now, even if I could get root. Pity as the hardware and software really aren't bad at all...
I have this and writing on it now it is an absolutely phenomenal beast of a phone! Bought it from Very, got a case and pen with it too which wasn't included in the price. Battery can last two days. I got over 9 hours of screen on time and 47 hours mixed usage in total.

By far the best phone I've had. I thought I'd made a mistake in terms of size on day one. By day two I know I won't go back to anything smaller.

I was comparing to the S10+ in the shop yesterday and yep, I'd stick with my Mate 20 X.

Hdr display is fantastic. Proper beast and I'd have this over the Pro any day.

The sound is terrible as it comes out of the USB c port so if it's charging it's really quiet. I'm not bothered about that as I don't really use the speakers. Phone is great though.

Worth nothing that most banks will not insure a phone larger than 7” screen size as they class it as a tablet.

I'd assume they were just returns... But just a guess.

When you say got a case and pen not included in the price, did you buy them separately or do you mean they didn't advertise but it did come with them? My mobile phones direct order still says "awaiting stock" but very have dropped price by £100 and I have a 20% next order voucher so it's only £50 more than this... If it includes a case and pen I'll cancel and order from very lol
