Better late than never; Huawei Mate 20 X gets DxOMark rating (and it's good)

The Mate 20 X was announced in October 2018, but yesterday DxOMark finally gave it a score for its camera.

The total score of 111 puts it in the top 20, and serves a reminder of just how good this phone was when it first hit the market.

While serving more a niche market than the Mate 20 Pro, given its massive 7.2-inch display, the handset was an absolute delight to use for multimedia consumption, as well as the ability to use an M-pen for taking notes or annotating documents.

With the Mate 30 series never making an official appearance in the UK, the Mate 20 X is still to be considered a current release, despite its age.

With age comes a far more affordable price, with the 4G model now down to as little as £300 if you shop around.

It’s the 4G model that is worth buying, given it has a larger 5,000mAh battery than the 5G variant released later in 2019 (which will still set you back around £650).

It also has stereo sound, another feature the 5G model lost in order to accomodate the 5G modem and extra antennas.

However, both models have the same camera setup of a 40-megapixel primary camera, 8-megapixel telephoto (2x zoom) camera and 20-megapixel ultra-wide angle camera.

As you can see from the photos below in my own shared gallery, the camera is great, so if you’re not interested in laying down almost a grand on a new phone with a great camera, you can probably do worse than look at the Mate 20 X.

Also, if you’re after something a little smaller but still packing a mighty punch, the regular Mate 20 Pro has a score of 112.
