Would you own a phone as big as the Huawei Mate 20 X?

Yeah, the Mate 20 X is huge. 7.2-inch screen huge! Compared to the Galaxy Note 9 — a phone that is already pretty big — the Mate 20 X still looks like a slab.
Thankfully, Huawei isn't relying only on a big screen to sell this device. No, no, there's support for a new Huawei M-Pen, which kind of sounds like it'll work like a Samsung S Pen, but will be sold separately; there are also stereo speakers with enhanced bass chambers in there; there's a gargantuan, 5,000 mAh battery inside; and there's a gamepad specifically developed for the Mate 20 X to kind of transform it into a sort-of-Nintendo-Switch (but not quite) console.
Yeah, it sounds cool... but is that size overkill? Well, we thought we'd ask you — would you own a smartphone with a 7.2-inch screen?
Would you own a smartphone with a 7.2-inch screen?
In a heartbeat!
If it has enough features and accessories to support that big screen, yes
Nope... that's overkill!

I miss small phones. The Pixel 3 and IPhone Xr are the last it seems and i don't want neither one.

I would most definitely get this amazing device! I just wish the powers that be in the US would give Hauwei a chance, and it sucks that it's not compatible with CDMA networks. :( Out of all the cellular flagships that has been unveiled this year, this is the ONLY one that has impressed me! Hauwei isn't playing, LOL!

I would get this but they need to up the PPI on it.

It's full HD with a PPI higher than the iPhone XR so I think it's fine, If this phone didn't use the Kirin soc then I would agree but Huawei doesn't have the best track record when it comes to harnessing the power of the GPUs they use so until they figure that out I really wouldn't won't to see a QHD version of this phone, for example, the P20 and P20 pro have FHD displays and they get worse FPS than the iPhone 6s plus, the P20 has a Mali-G72 MP12 so that shouldn't be happening but Huawei is crippling it, when Samsung gets the exact same performance in the Exynos version of the S7(they also cripple the ARM GPUs in their SOCs) using the previous gen ARM GPU with the same cluster count then you know you have a problem, Huawei should stick with FHD until they address this issue with their SOCs.

While I used to love the iPhone SE, I love my 7 even more as I feel I am able to use it more comfortably. The new phones are anyways requiring us to use both hands, so I dont think this is an overkill. As long as there are nice features that make use of the real estate I think people will love it. Especially media consumers. Remember what looks like an overkill today will be the standard tomorrow for everyone.

As an SE user myself, I couldn't agree more. It's a great phone for the most part, but both the display and the actual dimensions are too small. Larger screens are better, but I want to get a 7 or an 8 because I don't want to deal with the notch and prefer a one-handed device. My ideal phone would be an XS with decent pricing and no notch.

Compare mate 20X with note 9, iPhone XS max and S9 plus highest same as you comparing burj khalifia and Empire State Building Lol. Honestly still good looking phablet even though I’m not a fan of Huawei phones.

1. Only moron stores their phone in the front pocket (check the correlation with sperm count, fertility and testicular cancer) 2. 7.2" inch in 19:9 ratio means long/tall, rather than overly wide 3. We need real high end competition to Samsung Note-series. Mate 20 X has a true pen support and is not low-mid class like LG's Q-series Stylus phones 4. It has a 5000mAh battery, AND a card slot, AND a 3.5mm jack, AND stereo speakers AND those fancy cameras. Thank you Huawei. Thank you for making something DIFFERENT and not just another me-too-copy of almost all the other top end phones of 2017-2018
