Huawei MateBook 16 review: a nose(cam) short of great


Here's what else the US is missing out on.

Fast eight-core processor ; Very nice chassis ; Excellent battery life

Drive partitions are a hassle ; Nosecam ; Something weird going on with the microphones

Huawei’s MateBook 16 is its latest attempt at a flagship MacBook competitor. It includes AMD’s lightning-fast Ryzen 7 5800H. It performs well with excellent battery life, but there are weird things here and there that you won’t see from other premium...

The Huawei MateBook 16 Review, Powered by AMD Ryzen 7 5800H: Ecosystem Plus


Having very recently reviewed the Matebook X Pro 2021 (13.9-inch), our local PR in the UK offered me a last-minute chance to examine the newest element to their laptop portfolio. The Huawei MateBook 16, on paper at least, comes across as a workhorse...

Huawei MateBook 16 review: Powerful and well priced, but the webcam is a problem | ZDNet


Well made, with long battery life and an excellent 16-inch screen, Huawei's MateBook 16 ticks a lot of boxes. With a better webcam, this laptop could be a real winner.

High-quality 16-inch IPS screen ; Good all-round performance ; Good speakers ; Long battery life ; Attractive price

Webcam location and resolution need a rethink ; Reflective screen ; Screen mirroring and file sharing limited to Huawei devices

Huawei MateBook 16 review: Big display, big potential


Huawei's first 3:2 16-inch notebook promises to unleash your creativity. Find out if it can in this Huawei MateBook 16 review.

Lovely, sturdy aluminum design ; Nice looking, large display ; Ultra-fast charging ; Huawei Multi-screen Collaboration ; Good sounding keyboard-side speakers

Display specs aren't as accurate in our testing ; Poor graphics performance ; Unflattering webcam angle ; Quiet microphone ; €1,199.00 at Huawei ; €1,099.00 at Huawei

The Huawei MateBook 16 is an excellent all-rounder for professionals looking for a laptop with a big display, but it isn't quite the creative powerhouse Huawei wants you to think it is.

Huawei MateBook 16


The Huawei MateBook 16 is a fantastic laptop if you want a big battery and an even bigger screen – but you may struggle to find one

Speedy performance ; Big screen for work and play ; Reliable battery life ; High-quality keyboard

Sometimes goes to sleep when the charger is removed ; Not great for portability ; Unflattering webcam

The Huawei MateBook 16 is a solid laptop with a great 16-inch screen that’s ideal for working and watching video content. Add to this an excellent battery life and a quick eight-core processor, and there’s no doubt this is one of the best 16-inch...

Huawei MateBook 16 (2021) review


With a boxier 3:2 aspect ratio, you can fit more on the MateBook 16's 16in screen than most alternatives - and that's perfect for remote work

Detailed, vibrant display ; Spacious 3:2 aspect ratio ; Powerful AMD chipset ; Stylish design

Awkwaqrd 720p webcam ; No discrete GPU ; Spongey keyboard ; No touchscreen support

The AMD-powered MateBook 16 and its large boxy 3:2 display is perfect for split-screen multitasking, dealing with emails, spreadsheets, coding and video calls (as long as you can get past the terrible angle from the built-in webcam) but the lack of a...
