Huawei P50 Pocket Review | A High-End Foldable That Isn't For The Average User

The new Huawei P50 pocket is a lightweight device designed to go wherever you need it to, whether you're on business or vacation, and it's the first smartphone to support 50 watts of fast charging. With its striking appearance and high performance, the Huawei P50 pocket is perfect for multitasks looking for a phone that fits in their pockets. It's also equipped with an efficient octa-core Kirin 970 processor and 4D dynamic pressure sensor, optimizing power usage when shooting pictures from the rear camera while the device is in your pocket.


  • 6 inch full HD+ display 1920x1080 , 538ppi
  • 16-megapixel rear camera 24MP f/1.8 aperture f.2.2 10mm 1/1.7" sensor 27.8mm equivalent focal length in 35mm film camera
  • 8-megapixel front camera
  • Dual SIM card slot so you won't have to choose between work or play during your day
  • 6GB LPDDR4 RAM and 128GB ROM UFS 2.1
  • Oct-core Kirin 970 processor paired with Mali-G72 MP12 graphics
  • 4D pressure sensor, Proximity sensor, Accelerometer, Compass
  • NFC allows you to easily share data with other devices or your Huawei Watch Sport
  • Bluetooth 4.2 for connecting to Bluetooth earphones and speakers
  • IP53 water resistance rating so you can use it worry-free in rain or shine

The phone is compatible with the LTE networks of all carriers, including Verizon Wireless, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, but cannot be used on CDMA networks such as Verizon's network. If you use the phone on another carrier besides Verizon Wireless, ensure you have an active nano-SIM card inserted before turning on the device. If you insert a SIM card from another carrier, the device will not function properly, so please keep this in mind.

Battery Performance

  • The 4000mAh capacity provides good battery life for most workloads.
  • Extensive gaming quickly depletes the battery.

The battery capacity is 4000mAh, which isn't particularly large compared to other phones in this price range.

The battery had dropped by 8% after an hour of Netflix watching, and it had dropped by 4% after an hour of online streaming to Bluetooth headphones. These figures aren't particularly impressive, but they're within the range of power drain that we're used to seeing on smartphones.

However, while I had a great time playing on this phone, it was a bit surprising to see that the battery had dropped by 14% after only half an hour of intense gaming. To put it another way, unless you're sitting next to a charging port, you won't be able to fit many gaming sessions into your day.


  • There is no 5G connectivity
  • There is no Google Mobile Services
  • Otherwise, excellent performance, particularly when gaming.

The Snapdragon 888 chipset powering the P50 Pocket provided a snappy level of day-to-day performance, with minimal lag when scrolling around displays or moving between apps. Even for the most demanding games, the gaming performance was excellent, with great graphics and smooth operation.

On Geekbench 5, the gadget scored 919 for single-core performance and 3,266 for multi-core performance. This distinguishes it from the ZTE Axon 30 5G and Vivo V23 Pro and the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3.


The huawei p 50 pocket comes in the classic black color and retails for $599 through Verizon Wireless or Best Buy. Those pre-orders will receive a free Google Daydream View headset while supplies last! The 6-inch smartphone is 6 inches tall by 2.83 inches wide by 0.32 inches thick and weighs 6.17 ounces to make it easy to carry wherever you go. It also has an IP53 rating against dust and is water-resistant up to one meter for 30 minutes (note: it's best not to test the limits). That’s all for today! I hope you enjoyed this article.
