    I have an older Huawei which still has Google play services. Now, I'm in italy, not in the US... But I was under the understanding that due to Huawei privacy concerns, this is the reason American based OS systems were not allowed to do business with the Huawei. So am I to understand that this is only with newer devices? Becauee as I've mentioned... Mine still gets Google play. What OS then, does this phone run?

    I want a folding phone so bad. Just sucks that Huawei can’t use Google services anymore. I can’t wait to see how far folding phones have come in 5 years!

    I really want folding phones to work out. I read all the time on the phone, but i dont want to get a tablet just for reading. Though the cost is so extremely high, im guessing ill have to wait a few years

    Wow! You've got big hands with lots of reach. I myself have always loved the compact models, of especially Sony. But it's been a while since they've actually made a compact, anywhere near the top model. Btw. Folding phones? I think I'll just use a tablet when necessary. Thanks for the review anyway! 👍

    Hi, bug chasers you have found me so a big hooray to you, the answer for 5 down is what you will find here. Marques Brownlee says a ten-lettered word between the time 00:01-00:50 , which is a word commonly related to the time-old classic "Alice in Wonderland". Identify the word as that is your answer for 5 down. Also, remember the clue for 6 across is below the crossword.[ Esperanto - 2021 ]

    You do very well with all your products you show.... I love a lot of Huawei products but that phone there actually sucks because of the screen itself, that's a big issue and then no Google relationship. I mean it's just not feasible in price ... it is higher than even Galaxy fold an Galaxy fold Z 2 of which I have both and now they are coming out with a third one near the fall but that Huawei mate xs is just way overpriced for what you get and how easily it scratches. They should have made it so that it folds in but I guess they wanted to be different, you can't even put a case on that....Because it folds outward's crazy 😧

    Outside folding phones are nicer to me. They seem to better utilize the screen better. They seem to fold more flush with less gap. However until the tech catches up they gotta switch to the inside for now. They just have to.

    This design is the best because you actually get to use the main screen as a normal size phone and whip out the extra screen space when needed.. the problem with the galaxy fold is that the main phone screen is garbage, so it’s forcing you to always use the big screen when thats not very practical.. this wahway design of using the extended screen only when needed is pure genius
