Welcome to my review of the Huawei Mate 20 X smartphone.

My review is split into several parts. A comparison with the Huawei Mate 20 Pro, usability and UI, Audio, Camera and final verdict. The audio section includes a loudspeaker shootout between the Mate 20 Pro as well.

  1. Just a question. What are the top 2 cases you have found for the Mate 20X? I’ve tried Noreve, but keep coming back to the free one that came with the phone.


    1. Hi Jim, the free one is one of the better options. I also have the official back leather cover from Huawei. It’s ultra slim and protects the 4 corners and leaves the sides open. I also have the smart view cover but don’t like that as it’s harder and slower to get access with the flap part always being in the way
