If you're looking for a two-handed mega-sized phone then the Mate 20 X is a genuinely fantastic media powerhouse. It has a great (and, yes, massive) screen, further enhanced by great audio, and the battery just goes on and on whatever you throw at it.

A niche phone just got more niche - but if you know you want 5G and the biggest screen in town, the Mate 20 X 5G won’t disappoint.

The Huawei Mate 20 X 5G is a perfectly good phone. It’s a bit too big, but otherwise it’s quick, nicely designed, has fantastic cameras and a good-quality display. Ultimately, though, as with all 5G phones right now, the Mate 20 X 5G is simply too expensive and the 5G service currently too patchy to justify the extra spend. That, coupled with the shortened battery life and the uncertainty over the future of Huawei’s ability to continue to supply Google software means it’s a phone we can’t currently recommend.

The phone's panel, combined with its next-generation network capabilities, great camera and hefty battery make it one of our favourite 5G phones so far. Huawei's device will certainly not be for everyone though - those that are not fussed about taking advantage of 5G in its early form are better off with cheaper handsets that are just as capable.
