The 5G might kill the battery, but it does looks good

That back gaming gimmick design isn't my cup of tea, looks awkward and that big tencent game logo. Also these triggers buttons are useless to me.
If you're a heavy phone gamer its definitely worth it though.

I just saw this in xda news

Looks great.

Has to be more affordable than the s20 ultra by a wide margin. $715


Are these phones easy to boot loader unlock and root?

Same question.. bootloader unlock and hopefully custom firmware as well? Lineage OS or something?

Did some research and the bands won't really work with AT&T.. Only 2 of 4 LTE. Sad face..

No? Xiaomi is third place with updates, little better than Huawei

I've been looking at this one since it was announced.
If I can't get my hands on a good deal Mate Xs trough some of the local operators, I'll definitely be getting it instead!

But I think there should be an option to lower the speed to LTE. I'm guessimg but not sure. But anyway even if it doesn't, I don't mind since 95% of the time I'll be using wifi. So battery won't be an issue.

That makes no sense. Although these are niche phones they are flagship in their own right considering the specs and peice.

I say updates will be regular. They have to be again according to the hefty price tag and high spec sheet.
