  • Huawei's foldable Mate X seems to suffer from catastrophic defect similar to the never-launched Galaxy Fold

    Huawei's foldable Mate X seems to suffer from catastrophic defect similar to the never-launched Galaxy Fold
    2019 was the year when we finally saw the very first foldable phones out there, but their launch was far from flawless: the biggest name in the game, the Samsung Galaxy Fold, abandoned the first launch attempt after reviewers found a critical flaw with the design that would break the phone after a day or two of use. Samsung recalled all units sent to reviewers and seemed to fix the flaw and successfully staged a launch in late September.

    The other company that promised us a futuristic foldable phone in 2019 was Huawei with its Mate X

    The device was delayed multiple times and it seems quite hard to find in China, but new reports with users who have had the device for a while show that it might be suffering from similar issues to the Galaxy Fold.

    A recent video out of China shows a broken Huawei Mate X with the screen showing all sorts of weird artifacts, probably due to some sort of dust or debris having entered under the screen. The Mate X folds so that the main screen remains exposed on the outside, a different design than the better protected, inwards-folding Galaxy Fold.

    We are not quite certain whether that's a widespread issue or just a lone failing unit, but it's one more warning that the roads towards foldable phones will be rocky and this design is definitely a tough nut to crack.

    I really don't see the appeal of owning this device, especially when the cost is higher than the Galaxy Fold.

    Same here. If one is buying this phone it's nothing but solely for the sake of self satisfaction.

    A random person on Weibo posting a video of a broken Mate X with no explanation whatsoever, this means(even though this example is highly unlikely) he might have even hit the back of his device with a hammer until the OLED panel shattered to make this happen, for example. If this was a widespread issue that everyone is complaining about then it would have made more sense, but how can you write an article based on a single video that tells us nothing at all by its own?

    1. It's a device that seems to have been always "sold out" but not a lot of Chinese companies are posting out reviews. 2. Sure it's only "one" bad example, but this could be something that could start a wide spread issue (even though this example might be highly unlikely) like the note 7 or the ipad pros bending.

    The foldable phone doesn't serve any purpose at this point other than to just have something different and more expensive. If the galaxy fold had an s-pen, more apps that would increase productivity and other accessories to not need a laptop then it would justify 2000 pricetag! This phone is in the same category! Just because it bends what advantage does it give you, what apps will work, and will it stay updated for the life of the phone! For 2000 my phone better fly to me like thor's hammer! Lol

    Huawei phone suffering from a major defect, no way? It's not like Huawei is known for their massive quality. They aren't.

    It could be that the phone fell on the floor. On this type of design, there can be quite a bit a display damage from a fall.

    It just doesn't smell right. To me it looks like catastrophic user damage

    I don't care who makes it, I'm not buying it. Gonna wait at least 2 more generations until I'll even consider buying one (from Samsung of course).
