Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS review


The Mate RS is stunning and has an amazing camera, but it's not worth the extra over the Huawei P20 Pro

Great design and style ; Astonishing camera ; Plenty of power and storage ; Excellent screen

In-display fingerprint sensor is unreliable ; Very expensive ; Fragile glass body

You can get everything the Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS does best on a phone that costs half as much — the Huawei P20 Pro — and its a massive struggle to find a compelling reason to splash out the extra.

Huawei's Porsche Design Mate RS has crazy specs for sky high price


Wireless charging, an underscreen fingerprint sensor, 512GB of storage and triple cameras. You name it, this phone probably has it.

Huawei Porsche Design Mate RS: Triple cameras, in-display fingerprint reader, and 512GB of storage


If you thought Huawei's new was expensive, the Chinese phone maker has another model that makes it look cheap.

Huawei will begin selling the Porsche Design Mate RS in Europe on April 12th.

Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS review: The best on the market


Huawei didn't just present the P20 Pro, P20 and P20 Lite this year. The Chinese manufacturer also debuted another smartphone with a much heftier price tag. Why does the new Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS cost so much more than other high-end...

Huawei Mate RS


Porsche Design and Huawei team up for an ultra-high-end smartphone. But it's not without its problems.

Beautiful OLED screen ; Superb camera (with AI disabled) ; Masses of storage ; Great battery life

Stuck with the nasty supplied case ; Software bugs ; Ridiculous price

As mentioned, the Huawei Mate RS sports the same tri-camera setup as the Huawei P20 Pro. This combines a 40-megapixel telephoto sensor (f/1.8), a 20MP monochrome sensor (f/1.6) and a standard 8-megapixel image sensor (f/2.4). All three were...
