The Huawei Mate 20 X 5G makes its market debut in the UK. It has a huge 7.2-inch display, heavy at 233 grams, and not particularly thin. The build quality is flawless, as I have come to expect from Huawei. The battery is charged quickly at 40 watts, which we will find out about in our final review.

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)
