Foldable smartphones seem to be making a reentrance in the whole smartphone world. With the Huawei Mate X2 and the Galaxy Z Fold 2 looking incredibly similar, one can't help but wonder which phone would win when pitched against each other.
Foldable Phones' Disadvantage
One of the most common fears when it comes to buying an expensive foldable phone is not just regarding the phone's practicality when it comes to certain form factors, but also the whole fragility of the device in general. This is something that a particular "MrMobile'' had to learn the hard way with an incident involving the Moto Razr 5G once before.
According to the story by AndroidCentral, MrMobile notably experienced the same disaster once again with the newer Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2. Due to the experience, MrMobile reportedly considered trying out Samsung's competition, the Huawei Mate X2 which is basically trying to go head on and accomplish something that its competitors struggle with.
Galaxy Z Fold 2 Cracks
Despite being maybe the best foldable phone in the entire market with just so few, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 owners reports regarding cracking located along the crease of the inner display is something very common. While this might have not really been a big surprise for this expensive folding phone at $2000, it still did turn attention to Huawei's attempt at fixing what Sony found hard to do through borrowing designs from other folding phones.
The move by Huawei also reportedly made him appreciate Samsung's popular Premier service that users get when they purchase the foldable phone from the company. Users can easily check out MrMobile's personal impressions of the new Huawei Mate X2 in this YouTube video.
Huawei Mate X2 VS Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2
The video reportedly dives deeper into the design, the cameras, and basically how the two phones stack up against each other. The Huawei Mate X2 was compared to the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2. Of course, Huawei's current battles with the US makes it difficult for United States buyers to get their hands on these foldable phones.
Still, for the sake of smartphones, especially foldable smartphones, it is interesting to see how Huawei fared in comparison to its Samsung counterpart. The video tackled the phone's difference in size, refresh rate, and other display features. The video also tackled how the phone felt in the users hands as well as its practicality and orientation.
One particularly huge advantage that the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 has in comparison to the Huawei Mate X2 is that the Samsung phone has a selfie camera within the fold making it easier for the user to take video calls or video conferences within the fold itself. As for Huawei, users will have to fold the phone in order to take a video call like any other regular video calls. In the end, it is really up to the user to see which phone better fits their preference.
