Using the Mate 20 X 5G in Monaco is like living in the near future. Almost everywhere I went, the phone showed and connected to a stable 5G signal, and often returned speeds that would put the Millennium Falcon to shame. It's the first Huawei phone to be sold with the Balong 5000 5G modem, which works in conjunction with the Kirin 980 processor and supported by 8GB of RAM.

Reviewers from nextpit have found the following[***]:
The Huawei Mate 20 X 5G is the first 5G smartphone from Huawei. It has a 7.2-inch display, heavy at 233 grams, and not particularly thin. With Huawei's Balong-5000 modem and the corresponding antennas, the smartphone will zoom faster than any other - at least if the corresponding network and 5G tariff are available.

Reviewers from techradar have found the following[***]:
The Huawei Mate 20 X 5G is a big-screened 5G phone with plenty of power and a great triple camera setup. It also features an extra 2GB of RAM as standard, and, of course, 5G data speeds. However, in the UK, the hardest thing to stomach about the phone is its price. Available for £999 (around $1,240 / AU$1,830)
