Review: Huawei P50 Pocket Fashionista Folding Smartphone

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2022

The Huawei P50 Pocket is part of the latest flagship P-series lineup of smartphones from the Chinese phone maker. The folding smartphone offers a large display when unfolded yet offers a compact form factor when folded into half.

When folded, the Huawei P50 Pocket becomes compact and fits snugly in the trouser pocket or a ladies purse.

When folded, the Huawei P50 Pocket becomes compact and fits snugly in the trouser pocket or a ladies purse.

The design of top-end smartphones is fraught with trade-offs between desirable characteristics that tend to contradict each other in terms of manifestation.

Most of us desire a large display and long battery life yet baulk at the resultant bulkiness and weight.

My Take

The Huawei P50 Pocket is a head-turning flagship smartphone that offers a large display when unfolded and a compact form factor when folded – along with a stunning design that befits any fashionista.

We desire powerful performance and beautiful design yet keel over at the higher price tag.

So the design process by the phone maker and the buying decision often comprises a set of trade-offs between the things we desire in a smartphone.

The Huawei P50 Pocket removes the need for some of these trade-offs.

It offers a large 6.9-inch display when unfolded yet folds into a compact form factor that fits snugly in the trouser pocket without poking at uncomfortable places and threatening to slip out.

At 190g, it is not particularly heavy and has a large 4000mAh battery with 40W Huawei SuperCharge capability. Only wired charging is supported.

And as a flagship smartphone, has top-tier hardware for top-notch performance, including Huawei’s forte in smartphone cameras.
