    Thread Volume fluctuations on Audible app

    Using on a Huawei Mate 20x 5G (EMUI 12, Android 10). At night, screen off, timer on, via phone speaker. Happened on multiple titles despite remove/reinstall, redownload etc. Current title is The American by Martin Booth. Volume is very low, maybe one or two notches off silent. As I listen...

    Thread 5G connection speeds and quality?

    Due to wifi issues at home I have been forced to rely on mobile data a lot more this last week. I am in an apartment block, and the mobile connection has always been quite average, presumably due to the building's steel framework. Have any other 20x 5g users on here compared the 5g speeds and...

    Thread 20x 5g battery case

    I like my 20x 5g but the battery definitely lasts much less time than the 20x (is physically smaller and has the 5g tech to run). I found I can get the length of use I need by flipping it to fight mode and ultra battery saver when not in use. This cuts battery use to very little, but of course...

    Post Goodbye Huawei? What is your next phone?

    Yup, definitely agree. I just swapped to the 5g version for a change rather than anything else. Like your experience it feels to me like a very modern phone. I've rejected various Notes and suchlike in the last years and always returned to the 20x. The 5g version has much worse battery life and...

    Post Dolby Atmos bug on 20x 5g

    >>common bug on all U.K international builds since EMUI 11 Thanks for letting me know. I will register a support issue with Huawei when I get a chance then. Hopefully if enough people do then a fix will come through.

    Post 5G version worth the upgrade?

    Because for me a phone is a tool that is used all day every day for my job, and I'm willing to pay whatever to get the tool that does what I need. Some need Makita, some Ryobi 🤷‍♂️

    Post Goodbye Huawei? What is your next phone?

    Enjoy the Pixel! Never tried one myself. I recently swapped to my first 20x 5g from the 20x and after some messing with battery optimization am really liking it. Could have stayed with the 4g model with less hassle 😆

    Post Mate 20X 5G for 350€?

    If it does what you need then I would say yes. I use my phone all day every day for music, work etc. so I am happy to pay whatever to get a device that works just as I want. It's a tool and any tradesman will tell you that cheap tools don't make sense. I just sold a 20x with box and warranty...

    Thread Dolby Atmos bug on 20x 5g

    UK phone patched right up to date. Playing music, very tinny. Went to Dolby Atmos option page. Option was already on by default. Page showed that Atmos was 'auto activated in speaker mode' or some text like that (Spotify was playing). Touched a setting on that page and clearly the function...

    Post Table phone stand or dock ?

    Wondered if anyone had found a desk stand (with integrated usb connector) that supported the Mate 20x or 20x 5g fast charge/supercharge? One where the phone slides down onto a fixed in place USB C connector.

    Just picked up a resonably priced 20x 5g and enjoying it so far. The faster charging rate is very 😎 I got myself a 5g sim to test with it, see what speeds I can get at home at and the office.

    Thread Call quality issues with Jabra earbuds?

    I have three models of Jabra earbuds - Elite 7 Pro, Elite 85t and Elite 75t. Part of the reason for purchase was the reviews saying how good these were for calls. I do a lot of calls/meets for work via my PC and a Jabra Bluetooth Link 370 dongle. That works very well. What does not work so...

    Man, so much negativity on this thread. It's a 4 year old phone so I'm happy it's still getting comprehensive updates! Sure there are niggles but still. I'm pleased Huawei are still supporting old buyers, where many other companies would not. Especially as, after trying maybe 4-5 other phones in...

    Post 5G version worth the upgrade?

    I picked up a used-but-perfect 5g 20X from ReBuy in Germany for just under euro900 (!). Crazy to see them still selling at that price. But it has a 3 yr warranty and that and the condition was valuable to me. Long story short it was ok but went back under the 30 day return period. Had no box or...

    I have owned several Mate 20X over the years, by far my favorite phone. I love the big screen for fast typing and the sound quality through earbuds and the speakers. Am wondering if worth trying the 5G edition? I have tried various other phones but always go back to the 20X for the big screen...

    Thanks again. >>I'm guessing you can't get into recovery Correct. The phone is goig back to the seller as it is within the return window. I don't want to mess with it. I think that was good advice. Did Samsung ever say if they resolved this issue properly? It puts me off this model. Very...

    Got the Note 20 Ultra 5g a week ago used from a decent reseller. Today I got the black screen of death. Stock firmware. I want to return the phone while I have the chance, no interest in trying to fix it. It is password protected but I would ideally like to hard reset it before it goes back...

    I just tried a Galaxy Note 20 Ultra 5g with 6.9" screen. It was 'lightly used' but lasted all of two days before it failed with a black screen of death error. Seems this is very common with this model. Ridiculous for the price! Huawei 50X looks tempting but Huawei = no Google installed so no...

    Post Anyone Receive EMUI 12 Yet?

    2FA means when there is an extra security step set up for Paypal. The Paypal app does not run reliably on my 20X. From what I read online EMUI12 is based on HarmonyOS. That is based on Android I think, but I don't know which version. But anyway, I like it so far :)

    Post Anyone Receive EMUI 12 Yet?

    I got my update in the Netherlands a few days ago. I really like it. Battery life seems unchanged so far. Love the 20x, am on my 3rd. It's great to feel like this has given the phone a new lease of life. PayPal app still won't run reliably for me with 2FA on, but that has been the case for months.

    Post Info about imported AL00 turned into L29

    I was able to find a new L29 in the UK from a established vendor recently, but it wasn't cheap. I previously owned a AL00 for a couple of weeks, as it was sold to me in error (a Chinese version sold as global). When I owned that I did find a few independent phone shops online that would change...

    Noreve was a washout. They have beautiful handmade leather cases, in theory, but after several months waiting I had to get a refund. They simply couldn't deliver any of the many custom options they list for the Mate20x, only the few stock options which were not for me. Shame.

    Post Is there a Workaround to Enable 'Tap to Wake' on 20X?

    Just fired up my brand new Mate 20x and am very happy. It took a few hours to do all the updates from 9 to 11...but so lovely to have the big screen again. And the sound quality is definitely better than the Poco F3. Am now going to order a fancy leather blue shell case from France to complete...

    Post Goodbye Huawei? What is your next phone?

    Samsung make lovely devices, that's for sure. I had a Galaxy Note 10+ but sold it due to weak battery life. From what I read the Note 20 ultra is equal or worse than the 10+ in that regard. Doesn't matter if you are mostly close to a plug socket of course. And maybe I had a poor example.

    One thing I won't miss is the rear mounted fingerprint sensor. I've found that the under-screen ones on other devices are really hit and miss.
