Hands on with Huawei Mate 20 X 5G: Why it still matters
By Gong Zhe, Zhang Wanbao

The Mate 20 X 5G is not an old phone. It's the updated 5G version released in July.

You may think the phone is a bit outdated, but it can well be the best choice for many, even after the announcement of its successor Mate 30. Because this phone has an enormous screen that has almost no competitor in the market. And it still has Google apps preinstalled.
