Mate 20 X between Mate 20 and Pro...
So, this one just snuck in completely under the radar it seems.... Huge 7.2" FLAT amoled screen, minimal notch, flagship specs...basically the phone I've always longed for.
I had a chance to test it at MediaMarkt but it was locked down to the stand so I couldn't really hold it, and the in-store skin it was running didn't allow me to do much, but there was no hiding that gorgeous MASSIVE display. Even with its relatively low 346 ppi I wasn't bothered at all by any visible pixels.
This format has to be seen in person, it's totally different from the more "normal" big phones out there at the moment. For videos and games its just immersive at a whole other level. And reading too, which is a big one for me as I really prefer amoled black behind white text to e-readers. Much more of a tablet experience, while still being small enough to be handled like a phone - in my opinion of course, I know that this will be too big for most people.
Only thing giving me second thoughts right now is the Mi Mix 3 with its sublime no-notch screen and considerably lower price (€519 to the €899 of the Mate 20 X).
Now come on Sammy, this is what the Note 10 should look like. 7.2" and FLAT screen, then you can really start talking about productivity...
