Well mine was brand new, I'm guessing you're wasn't and it was 16 months ago when it was worth more. It was £800 or something like that when new in October 2018.
Mine was opened but seller didn't use it I bought it on fb marketplace for £325 so like brand new and got warranty till summer or something like that

How do you find where the remaining warranty is, I know it's in 'benefits, but where is that?

I bought the Mate XS way back in April but still trying to get GMS to play smoothly before I transit over fully. To me, the screen estate is a major point for me so I almost always go for the largest screen possible and so far besides the Mate XS, there is nothing that comes close, not even the Samsung Fold 2 which gives a small screen when folded.

I just tried a Galaxy Note 10 plus for a week and was pretty disappointed. Really missed the bigger screen. Battery life was a lot less and the speakers are tinny in comparison. I know it's old but am going back to the Mate 20 X for the rest of this year. Most enjoyable phone I've had for a long time.

Hi bigdisplay. You had to ask so here it is:
  1. The recent app switcher isnt accurate. When you pick one app it chooses another.
  2. Theres flickering which I've tested on 2 mate 20x's
  3. Auto brightness isnt saved after reboots.
  4. System notifs cant be dismissed or easily turned off in which case you need an app for that. And unfortunately despite the app those notifs still return after reboots which again you must use the app for them yet again.
  5. Network time notifs keep haunting which cant be turned off.
  6. My music player (PlayerPro) cant use its own lockscreen for unknown reasons.
  7. Battery isnt that efficient.
It bewilders the living excrement out of me how huawei which is supposed to be this big, serious phone maker hasnt addressed these ongoing issues users have complained about for YEARSSSSS. If you think about it its disgusting.

It should behoove anyone with a half a brain to complain about these immature issues to huawei which other o/s's would be too embarrassed to possess.

I look every now and again for something from a good manufacturer with a screen bigger than 6.9"...nothing has interested me enough to change. I'm really hoping Xiaomi launch a 7.0" phone or bigger. I've owned several of their devices and they worked well. The 20x plays the games I like well enough and everything else is solid and reliable (standard OS, not rooted) so no incentive to change for me 🤷🏻‍♂️

Maybe am interested to try the 5G 20x...so I keep the bigger screen. Does anyone know if the 5g version will get more updates than the 4g version, or is it treated the same?

This is the only thing I could find about the 5G version.
It's dated but does put the 5G phone in a separate section (probably not for so long, though?)

Yup, I agree. Also the 5g has worse battery life and lower grade speakers than the 4g. Which I remember is partly why I didn't buy that model originally.

Trying out a Xiaomi Mi 11 now...6.81"
Everything seems tiny after the 20x 😆
The worst part is that the Mate 20x never felt big to me coming from an Xperia Z3 tablet compact and Mediapax X2 as my previous phones and looking at the market, everything is freaking KitKat shaped midget phones :/
Guess my only option is a fold 2...

    Problem with the S20 Ultra is that it is more narrow than the current S10 5G with a 6.7" screen (76mm vs 77.1mm). Phones are getting taller and narrower these days.

    I just got an S10 5G and it is pretty awesome. The screen is curved but it seems to be not as curved as the Note 10 (I could be wrong on that but it seems that way to me and I had a Note 10 Plus for a day last week (returned due to damage)). The S10 5G is still quite a bit smaller than the Mate 20 X but overall it seems to be a great phone.

    I've been using the S10 5G for a few days and it has been great.....

    Until I took the Mate 20 X out of the drawer and powered it up. I switched back to the 20 X. :cool:

    Or maybe Samsung once they have successfully integrated AMD GPU on their upcoming flagships.

    Things that matter to me are large screen, large battery, true stereo speakers, and exceptional performance. So it could be the next Kirin 1000 based mate xx or any other brands that provide those features.
    100% same as u.
    In. My world a Big phone with 19:9 is minimum 7 inch. But I prefer 16:6 6,8 inch
    I don't care of brand at all.

    My priority is:
    1. Big display
    2. Big battery
    The rest is not that important for me nowadays, most phones in 2019- have okay specs.

    But if I can get my 2 top priorities in a phone/phones, i buy this with best specs.

    Last year I had Samsung Note 9, all to tiny for me.
    Then MI Max 3, then Honor 8x max, then Honor note 10 and since December 2018 my dear beloved Mate 20X.
    Every time I bought a phone a new was released short after... First time ever I remember that many Big phones the same year [emoji3]
    And now in 2019 Nothing, not even 1 Big phone is released... Hmmmmmmm.
    Dad is mad.

    I've tried most every flagship and some midrange phones currently available (this includes OP 7, OP 7T, OP 7 PRO, Note 10+, Galaxy A70, Nubia RM 3, Nubia RM 3s, LG V40, Vivo Nex S, Mate 10 (non-pro), Mate 20 (non-pro), Pixel 3 XL, and others). I keep coming back to the Mate 20 X. I still have the 7T, LG V40, and Nubia 3S sitting in a drawer (I really should post them for sale). The Mate 20 X is simply one of the best phones ever created in my opinion. I do wish it was very slightly smaller but all the other phones are too small. I'm on my second 20 X after selling the first one (mistake). The battery life on this thing is just crazy good. Performance is just a tiny bit slower than the latest from OnePlus. I use an alternate launcher and have it loaded with all the Google apps (Phone, Contacts, Clock, Calendar) so I never really see EMUI except in settings. It's awesome!

    With all that said, I'm still waiting for a phone that is truly comparable. The only one left I'm curious about trying is the ASUS ROG Phone 2 but I haven't convinced myself to spend the $900 for it yet.
