So far, the Huawei Mate X has managed to achieve 99% positive review on Vmall from users who’d managed to purchase the device. Most of the users commended about it’s ergonomical design and smooth browsing speed which went beyond their expectations.
However, although the Mate X has been selling like hot cakes in the Chinese market, it’s international availability remain uncertain till now. If you still remember, a Huawei’s spokesman had recently told CNBC that a global launch plan is still currently under review.
Many believed that the delay could be linked to the omission of pre-installed Google Play apps and services on the Mate X. Due to the lack of these popular apps, it might be unlikely for consumers to fork out such an astronomical sum of money for the device.
