We love the Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS for its boldness. If this was a race, this phone would be the odds-on favourite to win. On the day, however, it'd be the one to crash out in an explosive, expensive and memorable collision. Which might well be the most exciting outcome possible.

Big features at a big price

from TechRadar

The Mate RS comes with more optional storage than any phone before it, a new cooling system and an in-screen fingerprint scanner. The rest is basically a Huawei P20 Pro in a Porsche Design body. So yes, this phone is incredibly expensive, but unlike many luxury items, it delivers both style and substance.

A lot of changes that comes with a hefty price

from TrustedReviews

Featuring a beautiful design, insane amounts of storage and a few nifty additions, like wireless charging, the Mate RS is what the P20 Pro should have been. But, the price is ridiculous, even by top-end phone standards, and means that most people won’t be able to pick one up without selling a kidney.
