The first smartphone from 5G in Poland is already on sale. We check Huaweia Mate 20 X 5G

Play just announced that it was the first operator in Poland to launch Huawei Mate 20 X 5G, the first smartphone to support new generation connectivity. I spent a few weeks with this equipment and I already know if it is worth buying.

For starters, let's start with the obvious. Huawei Mate 20 X 5G costs 4399 PLN and at a high price it can be concluded that it will be a top-shelf smartphone. And it actually is. The equipment is well made, perfectly fitted and can not be attached to its quality and appearance. The latter is due to the strips made of glass, which look really chic.

The high price defines a great specification.

Huawei Mate 20 X 5G is equipped with everything that the Chinese have the best to offer. The smartphone drives the fastest Huaweia processor, specifically the Kirin 980 made in 7 nanometer technology. It is supported by 8 GB RAM and 256 GB internal memory that can be extended using proprietary Nano Memory cards (not to be confused with microSD!). All components are cooled by means of cooling with a steam chamber. There are also three rear cameras (wide, plain, portrait) and anterior, which make very good photos, although worse than those from the P30 Pro.

How does it all look in practice? Well, this phone works like gold, no game and application is not scary, but ... I did not expect anything else. There is no point writing about communication standards, because all the necessary ones have been used, including NFC. Well, maybe except the headphone out, which appears less often in flagship smartphones.

Great, caricatural big screen.

It is a flat OLED display with an impressive diagonal of 7.2 "and a resolution of 2244 x 1080 pixels. It supports DCI-P3 and HDR, and its detail does not leave much to be desired, as opposed to size.

Because what about the fact that games and TV series look impressive on him, since the smartphone sometimes did not fit into the pocket of his trousers, and handling it with one hand is not so much uncomfortable as it is simply impossible. This huge screen makes Huawei Mate 20 X 5G impractical, dedicated to a very narrow audience.

5G network? Who needs it?

The most important element of this smartphone is the Balong 5000 modem, which supports 5G connectivity in the NSA and SA standards. I had the opportunity to test it recently, so I found out that LTE is outdated, and 5G technology is the future . Of course, remember that too soon we will not be able to use 5G, because publicly available networks do not exist yet and will appear only in the future.

It is a quite distant perspective, so I will not be surprised that when introducing the 5G network in Poland it will turn out that the Huawei Mate 20 X 5G is an obsolete electronic shuffle device which is not worth bothering. The 5G modem currently does not give Polish users any illusive benefits.

The 5G modem is also the cause of a very big problem.

As it is completely new and takes up a lot of space, it could not be integrated with the processor. That's why it was placed in the housing at the expense of the battery. The standard version of the Huawei Mate 20 X had cells with a capacity of 5000 mAh, and the 5G variant has a smaller battery of 4200 mAh.

On paper, it is quite a good value that allows you to use the typical smartphone throughout the day. However, the word "typical" should be emphasized, because the latest Huawei with its gargantuan screen is not a typical smartphone, so the battery in it is exhausted during the day. Of course, thanks to the SuperCharge technology, it can be fully charged in about an hour, but it is rather a bad consolation.

I do not know who this smartphone is for.

Huawei Mate 20 X 5G is a classic example of a smartphone that looks phenomenal on paper, but ... it does not make any sense. A huge, high-quality display and flagship components may suggest that we are dealing with a device designed for players, but the battery is contradictory. In addition, smartphones for gamers generally make little sense, because good mobile games are like a cure. Do you want to play on the go? Great, so buy a Nintendo Switch, 3DS or an age-old PSP, not a smartphone.

Another disadvantage of Huaweia Mate 20 X 5G is a gigantic screen that makes it feel unusable in my opinion. The impression may be magnified by the fact that I have a broken right hand for a month, so using a smartphone generally makes it difficult for me. So I gave the new Huaweia to several people to use and each one, like one husband, said it was a monster, a beast, not a smartphone. Seriously.

The biggest advantage of this model should be a 5G modem, right? Unfortunately, in Poland it will not be useful for months, if not years. Therefore, I have the impression that its only function is to occupy a space that could be used for a larger battery and show that Huawei already has a smartphone that supports the 5G network.

It is a good marketing procedure that can increase the reputation of a Chinese manufacturer and attract new clients to it. However, it does not make Huawei Mate 20 X a device worth recommending for most people.
