Huawei P50 Pocket Review: A Folding Phone That Folds FLAT!

Looking at this, you might realise it’s quite similar to another folding phone that was released previously, but this is the Huawei P50 Pocket, and in some ways, it’s even better, but only if you don’t need specific Google services.

Designed in collaboration with fashion designer Iris Van Herpen, the Huawei P50 Pocket Premium Edition comes with a textured gold body that not only looks premium but feels very sturdy and durable as well. On the outside, you get two circles, one being the raised camera bump and the other being the Cover Screen that allows for the user to frame selfies even with the phone closed, check the weather, calendar and receive basic notifications.

That being said, the phone folds shut with no space between the two halves, which results in a slim and small folded footprint of 8.73cm by 7.55cm, with a thickness of just 1.52cm, compared to the thickest part of the nearest competitor, which is 1.71cm. It also snaps close with a satisfying sound and it’s easy to flip it open with just a thumb. There’s actually also the P50 Pocket White, which is the normal edition, but this won’t be coming to Singapore.
