Voted hot . The real phablet
I have had the international variant of this phone, and its amazing.

The screen is amazing, the 5000mah battery easily lasts 2 days with heavy usage, charging is very fast. Pubg mobile screams on this thing and it has a Samsung Dex equivalent.

I've had iPhones, galaxy phones, note range phones, Xiaomi phones and this is my all time favourite.

A quick note that with the Chinese one it's a bit fiddly changing launcher, but emui launcher actually is really good anyway, it's bullet fast. I usually install nova launcher but have actually stuck with the default launcher on my global one.

It comes with a really good preinstalled screen protector but I'd still recommend getting a case for it at the same time.

Fits very easily in my jeans and trouser pockets still, with the case on.

Female pockets seem to be a lot smaller for some reason and I doubt it would fit in them.
Whats the difference between this phone and the mate 20 pro?
I'm thinking of buying 2 but a bit worried

Do not pay huawei tax, better buy poccophone.
Just get myself Mate 20 pro Twilight from Shpock from guy near me sealed with the receipt for cracking price £570 so it's worth to look around you instead waiting for delivery from China. Just my point of view. Phone is proper beast getting used to it. Very handy as was using bulky Pixel 2xl before. Looks almost like Samsung s9+. Was trying to get used to One plus 6t before but no chance. Fingerprint scanner is terrible there. Huawei work far more better

But S9 has microsd so memory can upgraded with fast and cheaper micro SD card upto 512gb . On this there is nano slot . Nano memory is very expensive and slow at the moment and only available upto 256gb .

Well i have 128gb p20 pro and ive got 94gb spare thats with videos and hundreds of pictures on theres. If you need more dtorage then maybe the other phones will suit you better but i could never understand why you would need more than 64gb let alone 128gb unless you recording loads of 4k videos for blogging etc

Unfortunately the X model of the Huawei Mate 20 series won’t be available in the UK or most parts of the world. We can either buy direct from China or through third-party resellers like Eglobal.
bob.ay01/12/2018 14:32

The Huawei Mate 20 X 8GB/256GB can you get that in international version?


International version is limited to 6gb/256gb and there isn't any news that they will be releasing a 8gb/256gb for the international either. That may change but don't count on it.
Oh right wanted to go for the 8gb ram version what’s the difference between the international and Chinese version?

Yes im not to sure about the reasoning for making nano memory, maybe they will make all future huawei phones dual sim with the option of using a nano memory in sim slot 2

And the bend test...


Who really cares about the bend test ? Why would your phone get bent unless your over weight and keep it in your back pocket and sit down ? And if you put your £899 phone in a position it can get bent, then you deserve it to break.
This damn website man...

Im running out of damn pockets, usb c cables, buying all these damn phones!

There needs to be some hotukdeal anonymous addict support group or some shiiiiit....

Everyone cared when the iPhone 6 bent when you sat on it. Strange how attitudes change with companies like Huawei. If it was apple or Samsung the gluegate thing would be massively publicised but it seems to be swept under the carpet with Huawei. Maybe because the reviewers want to keep receiving their free phones

Well maybe it mattered to other people but i didnt even know the iphone 6 bent and it wouldnt bother me because i wouldnt sit on my phone. My daughters had an iphone 6 for years no problem with that, who sits on a phone ? Very strange unless they sat on it by accident. I do see your point though the glass should be stronger but as i dont try to put my phone in my bum and ive never broke a screen the bend test means jack to me

Wonda Mobile say there is an 8GB/256GB global version coming in December. Probably as it's hitting Singapore at that time.
Oh ok can you pre order it from Wonda? You guys reckon I should go for the 8 gb ram Chinese version or wait out for the 8gb ram global version from Wonda?

Global.
I recommend this phone, there is no phone quite the same. The screen is completely flat, AMOLED and 7.2". The battery is 5ah and this is the first phone I have used that really does last all day.

Are you sure? The prices are definitely £15 cheaper than before. I have already made my purchase last night and was gutted to find out this morning that it is now cheaper with the new promo code.

That would be the one without the EVR-AL00 code in the title. It's the only one that does not say imported from the Chinese market.
Tnx m8 coming from oneplus 6 and never used emui how is it good or bad
any deal on P20 PRO or MATE 20 PRO ?
This is a very good deal for the chinese version.
Seems a great price for what it is. I've set up a notify alert for it on their site for £450 (might never happen, but who knows!)

If it doesn't fit in your jeans pocket or threatens to pop out, you'll need to get some kind of man bag for it (assuming you are male).

It's not that bad, & you either end up accepting it or installing a third-party launcher - some people even grow to like/love it (I like it). It has improved a lot over the years, as independent reviews will tell you.

Compare the X with Mate 20 Pro
Edited by: "garbageguy" 5th Dec 2018
Cant wait for my mate 20 x to arrive. My lg v20 was still going strong but the camera on the 20 x is something else. Cracking deal on the best phone out at the moment!
