Huawei Mate X folding screen phone review: using innovation to make technology "soft"

ByKizzie Fearnley 2020-01-08 393

There is a temperature in science and technology, which comes from the hearts of users and designers; it is this "temperature" that promotes the development of the industry, accelerates technological innovation, and enables human society to move forward continuously.

The symbol of the emergence of human civilization is the manufacture and use of tools. We live in this era, as long as you want, you can easily record the beautiful things around you, as long as you want, you can express your feelings to another person. And what connects us to the world is the small mobile phone in our hands. It uses the power of science and technology to connect our hearts with the world.

People's yearning for a better future continues to promote the development and revolution of science and technology, which is also reflected incisively and vividly on the mobile phone screen between square inches. In this case, only a few years after the emergence of the concept of comprehensive screen, people turned their attention to another brand-new screen form, "folding screen". This technology, which once appeared only in science fiction movies, is what people think of the "future", but now it has become a reality.

.

Huawei, as a technology pioneer, brought us Huawei Mate X, showing us what the future mobile phone will look like, "one mobile phone, three innovations, new forms", which is the best interpretation of Huawei Mate X for the future.

Eagle wing folding design, combining the "magic" of science and technology and aesthetics


Huawei Mate X adopts eagle wing folding design. "folding" is not only a morphological art in design, but also a way of thinking in geometry. "Eagle wings" is the power that nature gives to creatures, symbolizing vastness and ease. Huawei Mate X hinge system can seamlessly support the screen and folding, so that the phone can truly achieve a perfect folding form of integration.

Huawei Mate X uses aerospace-grade polymer flexible screen to innovate materials and technology to make the screen display clear, sharp, saturated and bright. When unfolded, the Huawei Mate X presents an 8-inch unbounded tablet with a thickness of only 5.4mm at its thinnest point; when folded, the Huawei Mate X is transformed into a 6.6inch dual-screen phone that feels comfortable to hold. It is no different from a mainstream full-screen mobile phone, and it can use all kinds of functions normally.


Samsung, which also has a folding screen phone, adopts a completely different way of thinking. Unlike Huawei Mate X's outward folding scheme, Samsung chooses an inner folding scheme, so that the screen can be protected by a hard shell under normal conditions, but this also leads to the need for users to unfold the screen, which is very inconvenient. Huawei Mate X's outward folding scheme is bolder and more convenient, which can be folded or unfolded at will. Compared with the inner folding design adopted by Samsung Galaxy Fold, Huawei Mate X is obviously better in practicality, convenience and aesthetics.

For a folding screen mobile phone, how to place the camera, how to balance beauty and functionality, and how to make full use of the advantages of a large screen are all issues that need to be considered. Huawei Mate X's front-to-back imaging system fully takes into account these factors and brightens our eyes.

Because the front of the Huawei Mate X is wrapped by the screen, a bulge is designed on the right to hold the lens and other originals, and the vertical arrangement from top to bottom makes the Huawei Mate X more visually orderly. In terms of configuration, Huawei Mate X is equipped with a 40 million-pixel super-photosensitive camera, 16 million-pixel ultra-wide-angle camera, 8 million-pixel telephoto lens, and a ToF camera, there is no doubt about the strength of taking pictures.

Because the front of the fuselage is full of screens, Huawei Mate X does not have the so-called "front lens". Here Huawei skillfully takes advantage of the folding screen, and the four lenses on the back are both rear and front, which can play a role in different scenes. When taking a selfie, you can take a selfie using the back screen simply by flipping the phone. In this way, it not only makes the selfie more clear and intuitive, but also ensures the integrity of the screen.



Judging from the actual photo effect, Huawei Mate X still maintains the strong image strength of the Mate family, especially under the blessing of the ultra-wide-angle lens, the picture has great tension, accurate color and clear details.



In addition, even in the sun, the portrait mode can still accurately capture the hair of the character and the outline of the object. Through the intelligent recognition of AI, the excellent virtual effect of portrait can be realized.

"Easy to reach" interactive experience, improve efficiency and get twice the result with half the effort

As a folding screen phone, Huawei Mate X not only brings innovation in screen and photography, but also brings double improvement in experience and efficiency in terms of interaction from the user's point of view. For a mobile phone with a very special screen size and ratio, the adaptation of the application is an important basis for determining the feeling of daily use. 

In order to enable users' daily use to connect seamlessly, Huawei has specially opened up a "folding screen optimization zone" in the application market. It has made special adaptations to social, audio-visual, map and financial applications. The software that you need to use every day can be downloaded here.

 
Split screen mode.

In addition, Huawei Mate X also has two functions: split screen mode and "parallel horizon". As the name implies, the dual-screen operation of the two APP has a better visual effect and experience compared with the split-screen function of ordinary mobile phones, allowing consumers to browse gearbest while browsing Weibo and watching video while returning to Wechat, thus increasing their efficiency exponentially.

 
Parallel horizon.

On the other hand, "parallel Horizon" makes full use of the advantages of large screen interaction, and can achieve dual-screen operation in a APP, especially for shopping applications, where catalog windows and product details are displayed synchronously, which can further improve efficiency and avoid the tedious switching of pages back and forth.

Not only that, when switching between the folding state and the unfolding state, the phone can automatically adjust the screen of the application, making work and life, between the screen folding, more balanced and harmonious.

"Folding" mobile phones reflect our future

As a mobile phone that represents the future, Huawei Mate X has been closely watched by people since its birth. Media and users at home and abroad are very interested in this phone. Admittedly, there are still some problems to be solved in the technology and use of folding screen phones, but from the innovation of folding shape, camera system, application interaction and other aspects, Huawei Mate X is undoubtedly in the forefront of the industry, and it also gives us a glimpse into the shape of mobile phones in the future.
