Editor Rating

Huawei Mate Xs 2 is a unique and good-looking flagship foldable device from the popular Chinese brand, which features a slim and flexible body, powerful internals, and a unique reverse clamshell closing mechanism that features a single massive display that wraps around the body. This way, you have a display on either side, which can be used independently of each other or as a single unit, depending on your use case. In order to keep the device as slim as possible, they had to reduce the size of the battery and push all the camera units into a corner slot that runs across the length of the device.


Bottom Line

Huawei Mate Xs 2 is one of the best-looking foldable devices on the market, and the reverse clamshell design is also quite intuitive for use in either form factor. Unfortunately, the presence of a two-year-old processor and a small battery make it a less-than-ideal solution for power users.
