Huawei Claim their Phone is Better Than Switch

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Huawei Claim their Phone is Better Than Switch

In many respects, phones from 6 or 7 years ago are better than the Switch. Of course, they're really not very similar products at all. So it's kind of like saying Blu-ray players are better than transistor radios.

Since I was the only one that mentioned it (as an example); it’s not on there, that’s the point. Neither are any other of my favorite games. It could have the power of the biggest supercomputer out there, then still even GameBoy would be better because it has one of my favorite games while a phone does not. Now I realize that the phone companies aren’t necessarily aiming at the established console gaming crowd, so I fail to understand why this comparison was necessary when it was probably better to compare it to another high end phone.

It makes me think the company believes it's market doesn't understand that the Switch is and never really was that powerful, so they feel the comparison will be apt for the target audience's mind. I don't even think the Switch was as powerful as most phones when it released. Already people (including me) were complaining that it wasn't a Tegra X2, for just one example. 

Edit: edited all this bullshit out ... holy shit ... they're supposedly the third biggest phone seller in the world just behind Samsung and Apple. I guess my random guess was right, they ARE a big chinese company! 

They are actually the 2nd largest now and largest overall telecommunications equipment manufacturer in the world.  They definitely aren't the little guy out there.  We just don't hear their name very often in the US and Europe.

Don't people buy their phones these days by signing up for a contract that let's them pay for their phone in installments? Isn't that how people buy the iPhone X? If so, the price could be a non-issue for the casual crowd.

Also, a one sided controller with just a D-Pad and C-Stick would be terrible. Hopefully there's another set of buttons on the other side of the machine, and it doesn't rely on touch screen buttons.



The sentence below is false.

I think that's actually why the prices are so high. They'd rather tie you down to a subscription than let you buy it outright for a reasonable price.

well comparing it to next high end phone doesnt make any sense coz in about six month it will be dethroned.. secondly comparing it to switch which is already underpowered will atleast make sensible gaming audience sit up and notice to discuss how useless the comparison is, but its PR for them, and the amount of dumb kids that are floating around with their parent Credit cards would only see the tag line that if its more powerful than switch and it might play fortnite better. 

I guess, if that’s what they are going for.



I would buy it if it could play multiplatform games with better settings than the Switch.

Sure technically it has far superior Specs, but without a proper controller this doesnt mean much

Did you even bother look it up?




 

would you really refer to that thing on the side of the phone as a "proper controller"?

I'm just saying I wouldn't really think of a part of a broken PC mouse as being the same as KB/Mouse controls in a game, by the same standard I most certainly wouldn't call thing thing which is in the picture any rival for the controls which the Switch offers in terms of traditional gaming in comparison to smudged finger printy mess with non tactile feedback that a stick / screen combo would give.



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

And I can't stand the Asymmetrical sticks on the Joycons. - My right hands thumb doesn't point downwards you know.
So we are at an impasse.

With that in mind... You can use any typical Bluetooth enabled controller with the Mate 20 X if the current layout doesn't fit to your needs/wants/desires.
