  • Phone thes days : foldable, rolable but not affordable 😒

  • Thank you, Hinge Engineering

  • I hope people would dig a little deeper and realize any money going to Huawei is essentially money going to the Chinese Communist Party. And that only strengthens the CCPs authoritative and genocidal rule (Uyghur Muslim Concentration Camps, Anti Democratic crackdown in Hong Kong, missing scientists and whistleblowers relating to origins of Covid-19, military buildup against Taiwan)

  • It’s China only so……….

  • Can you use a wawei phone in the us

  • Download harmony 2.0 for one sexy review of it

  • It's not worth having it for its price. I mean come on its not even a gold to be in such huge amount of money. It's after all just a phone. Useless

  • Who buys these phones? Sent from my iPhone

  • And this is why the fascist US government wants to ban Huawei!

  • Outside folding was better

  • Not a fan of inside folding phones

  • OK BUT how do you put a case on this???

  • Great to see 2 Asian phone giants competing to create world best foldable phone of future, the only annoying thing is America doing sabotaging works at the side. Foldable phone is the future, when China master the technologies behind these phones, expect them to get much cheaper like many products produced in China.

  • Not going to buy a Huawei phone. Privacy is not for sale.

  • Does this thing have playstore? If not then this belongs to the garbage can im afraid. Too bad i like the design and the hardware.

  • I just got mine 🤓

  • This video has sold me on folding phones as the future, mainly for being able to use the high end camera to take better, higher quality selfies. Samsung and others need to advertise that feature; If they do folding phones will blow the hell up!

  • I kind of get the point of the wedge design but it's just a really stupid design choice. Why would you hold the phone with only your right hand? Is that how people even hold their phones these days? Even on my normal 6.5 inch phone I have to hold it in my left hand and operate it with my right index finger when it's in a horizontal position. I basically form a sort of stand with my left hand. It's hard to use with one hand even when it's vertical. Plus at 200g it's really heavy so I can't hold it with one hand for too long or my wrist starts to hurt. I thought the idea with these things was to have a phone on the outside and a folding tablet on the inside that you operate with a pen or something. I don't even get the point of the models with screens folding on the outside. And shouldn't the thicker part of the wedge be on the left side instead? Why is it even on the right? And that old Galaxy Fold had a bad screen on the outside? Who cares? It's just there so you see the dialer app and texts and stuff like that. You can just open the tablet inside if you want to read a mail or look at Google Maps. I'd rather have a small screen on the outside and not consume as much battery but that's just me. I'd rather have a phone/tablet thing with more battery and an even weight on both sides. The rocking on the table issue would get really annoying really fast too. Also people that are left handed could use it just as easily, as others have already pointed out. Anyway that's just my two cents.

  • The price of this phone is absurd!

  • Imagine using Lightroom on this phone !

  • Made in China? Nah! But yes! Yes! The China made products are not always craps

  • Huawei: Yeah screw left handed people.

  • I just watched the mate xs video he said the form factor is weird, I said in my mind why the don't give it a widge shape and Bam next video "I told you" mkbhd sound 😂

  • awesome

  • just wow! finally a phone where watching movie is much pleasurable.

  • 5:20me and the left handed gang be sweating as we gotta hold that wheight.

  • Muuuuuuuuch better than Samsung

  • good review !

  • You do an excellent job not only in the review itself but you make it very easy to watch and listen, thanks

  • I am about to rewatch the video and an ad for the galaxy z fold 2 shows up 😂

  • You forgot about the free spy software AND the ban on google apps including the google play store. Seems pretty fishy a big SLnumberr would forget to mention stuff like that for potential buyers.

    • Man this comment need to be pinned! True

  • Everything look good ,except no sale outside China,let only Mainland Chinese use this gorgeous phone. Moreover,No google No need to buy.Thank you for Video.

  • Because Samsung galaxy z fold 2 have a flex mode

  • The wedge shape lol. Phone too heavy? Yikes. What if the person always holds their phone with their other hand? They have to use it upside down? Otherwise the phone feels extra heavy? Someone got stoned and came up with that feature lol. Phone looks really solid. I will say the narrow screen on the fold 2 has actually been something I really like compared to my old smartphones. I was always getting big ass screens that make one handed operation difficult. On the fold 2 I can reach everything except for shit at the very top so easily with one thumb. Reminds me of my phones from way back in the day.

  • That's not mather because samsung galaxy z fold 2 have a flex mode

  • OCD people on that wedge design:

  • Amazing wedge design!

  • Nice device. I normally hate foldables but this design could really put a hurt on Samsung's sales.

  • Is the world really that stupid to embrace Chinese tech and its products after all they've done to the world? Huawei was built to spy on people - you damn know that and want to deny it. With all the data and intel China got, they spread their bioweapon most lethal - covid19. We all lost our friends and relatives to Covid. Yet you still support China?? Don't be too liberal that someone comes and shoves something up your ____ and you stand there looking dumb doing nothing.

  • That UI looks like xiaomi's meme ui

  • "The hingeniers" best part..

  • huawei is the best

  • This phone makes galaxy fold 2 look like a toy 😂 I can't wait to see fold 3.

  • all fold phone are crap old tech rollable better

  • its crap

  • 5:02 Wow! Look at that! So cool

  • Magic talent

  • I hate these fold phone's, you might as well carry around a tablet. A phone should be a phone, screens are to big these day's.

  • The China/Huawei stealing to Nortel the 5G technology ...boycott Huawei

  • i think .. smartphones can skip punch holes camera completely for folding can be an uninterrupted display on both the screens out n inside & justifies the idea of carrying bulky phone and paying an hefty amount

  • look so cool!

  • well done Huawei and well done on review.

  • i need this phone 🌚♥️

  • it’s beautiful but i just hate the OS it’s so ugly

  • Atleast still someone in a race who still provide us a charger

  • 👍

  • So not for left hand people then? All the weight distributed to the right hand side. For those of us holding with the left the weight would have been better evenly distributed. Of course I'm aware that screen probably rotates so can be held upside down for us lefty's, but that leaves us with our hands all over the cameras.

  • Without google services that is only trash..

  • Yay. Another phone I can’t get in the US! I love the way this thing looks. AMAZING! I want one so bad!

  • This phone need pen

  • what is the full form of MKBHD bro

  • Foldable phone are dumb. It StUpId doesn’t make any senses. If I want want to enjoy big screen I will get Ipad and use it at home

  • They put the weight into the right hand, but when it's open like that, must people will hold it with with their left hand, and use their right hand to point. They made the issue double as worse. Well, not for the left handed people. Perfect phone for them.

  • I like the size of the screens compared to my Z fold 2, and the cameras. Not sure why Sammy didn't stick their best cameras in their most expensive phone. If you are going to spend the money for one of these phones the extra bit for the best camera package is probably not a big deal to you. Unfortunaly for Huawei, no google services makes pretty much anything they make dead on arrival in the US, if they are even still sending phones here at all.

  • Who would e thought that device has appreciated 2x or 3x its worth. People are buying this at $3,000-$5,000 now...the camera and large front screen makes it better than fold 2, but not Google compliant unless you side load it and its not stable even if you do.

  • 0:51 HTC Vive w/ Deluxe Audio Strap

  • We want huawei to improve some things in the future.

  • what about lefties?

  • This is why Western Countries boycott HuaWei technology, because it is too good to admit it!

  • But Huawei is banned in USA, then why...?

  • Can we use it in the US? like with verizon.

  • I want to see the review of HarmonyOS.

  • Wallpaper where to download bro

  • the zfold2 is so thick you WANT the less-wide outer screen. if the make it as big as normal phones it would be impossible to use! Right now the best phone form factor to one hand is the folded Zfold2 ironically The x2 would be impossible to use when folded since it is so thick and so wide.

  • But mate x2 is looking too ugly when its fold too wide, fold should always b narrow because we already have a bigger screen inside , fold should also b pocket size friendly , fold 1 size was best for me just it had too much bezels but now fold is going ridiculous, hope samsung dont do it

  • all this and still no headphone jack

  • The previous XS looked better and is unique. This is just a Samsung clone done better that can't run Android apps.

  • They aren't available in the U.S??? Then what is the point:) On ebay, they want 5-7 thousand dollars!!! Samsung Fold 2 $999.99 ..thank you very much...I take that

  • I love Huawei phones

  • Does it run in Android?

  • wow so cool

  • I love huawei

  • It just dawned on me.... You could not put a case on this phone ☹️ Meaning, my $1800 phone would be destroyed in the first week ☹️

  • Nope

  • 7:11 For one second i thought you was in a site with this same layout

  • The USA have absolutely no reason to block Huawei's access to Android etc. If at least they'd be honest enough and admit it's a move in their trade war with China, but instead they lie and say it's for the safety of US consumers. What BS!

  • It comes WITH a charger "That's great!" iPhone DOES NOT come with a charger...and he says "That's great!"

  • Huawei is an amazing company, it a combination of scientists, mathematicians, and engineers. Now I can understand why the US gov banned Huawei, it is like a jealous kid.

    • samsung is a combination of scientists, mathematicians, and engineers. this is a copy of samsung. even the hinge promotional video looks like samsung.

  • Wouldn't be surprised if this folding phone thing will only ever remain a temporary fad no one ever takes seriously and its simply getting replaced by something like AR augmented glasses that pair with your phone and when you look down on your phone and the phone recognizes you gazing at it has the glasses project a folded out, and thus larger image on top of the phone - Maybe without the phone even displaying its contents anymore as a privacy feature.

  • 🇨🇳 Bought him out. Advertising 🤔 to the blind.

  • Ok, so where can we buy it.

  • Great phone. 2 bad Huawei is racially identifying Uighur ppl for china reducation camps

  • Ebook reader
