Huawei's MateBook is beautiful, but fundamentally flawed

 

The MateBook proves that Huawei can make a good looking device, but its keyboard cover has so many issues you wouldn't want one.

Thin, light and attractive design

Display is merely average ; Keyboard is sold separately ; ... And it's terrible ; ... And it makes a terrible kickstand

Huawei's MateBook is a confounding device. It impresses upon first glance, but it's not long before you realize it's only beautiful on the surface. If Huawei's goal was to prove it could make a premium-looking device, well, mission accomplished. It...

Huawei Matebook review

 

Huawei's attractive Matebook is a solid first effort, but poor battery life cuts down its appeal.

Huawei MateBook review: Hip, hip Huawei is just a little too stylish for its own good

 

The Huawei MateBook's designers sacrificed productivity for aesthetics in a couple of key areas, marring what is otherwise a very nice Windows 10 convertible tablet.

Solid performance, among the upper echelon of convertible tablets. ; Luxurious faux-leather cases exude quality ; Some artful design touches, including "nests" to store expansion cables

Foldable keyboard doesn't offer the stability of a kickstand ; Battery life is disappointing ; Eliminating the SD card slot is a risky move

We compared the MateBook against a number of other convertible tablets in its class, as well as a couple of ultrabooks. Performance tends to break down across product categories: Atom at the bottom, than the Core m chips, and on up to the Core i-series...

Huawei Matebook review: This Surface wannabe falls flat -- literally

 

Huawei's new tablet tries to be the best of Windows and iPad, but Samsung has its number.

The Huawei Matebook fits a full Windows 10 PC into an iPad-sized tablet chassis. The fingerprint sensor is fast. Its screen and speakers are excellent.

You'll get periodic pauses when launching applications or loading web pages, and battery life is merely OK. Huawei charges extra for the keyboard, stylus and dock you'll need in order to use the Matebook like a PC.

If you like what the Matebook offers, pick the slightly pricier Samsung Galaxy TabPro S instead. The TabPro S has an even better screen, better battery life and throws the keyboard in for free.

Huawei MateBook

 

The Huawei MateBook is one of the thinnest and lightest 12-inch Windows tablets you can buy, but be prepared to add a lot of necessary accessories to the shopping cart when you order one.

One of the thinnest and lightest Windows tablets on the market. QHD screen. Custom-fitted accessories.

No kickstand. Requires adapters for full functionality. Case, dock, and pen not included. Odd SSD partitioning. No rear camera or SD slot. Only a single USB-C port.

The Huawei MateBook is a sleek, well-built tablet for anyone who just can't conceive of moving to a mobile-only operating system like Android or iOS. It looks beautiful and has a large selection of custom-made accessories, though you'll pay quite a bit...

Huawei MateBook review: this tablet wants to be a PC, but misses the basics

 

In the world of tablet computing, there are two camps. There's the Microsoft Surface (and its clones) camp, which attempts to make hardware that transforms from tablet to laptop and back again....

Sleek, aluminum unibody design ; Snappy performance ; Vibrant display

Keyboard case is poorly designed ; Battery life is atrocious ; Poor heat management

Anemic battery life; Slow SSD; Folding keyboard isn't very sturdy or comfortable; Only one USB Type-C port ; Huawei's first Windows PC is a good-looking 2-in-1 with a vivid screen, but weak battery life makes this a less-than-impressive debut.

Huawei MateBook Review: Hands-On

 

We are pleased to see Huawei jumping on the bandwagon, with its first ever PC Tablet, the Huawei MateBook that features a digital pen, just like the Surface Pro 4.

The Huawei MateBook Windows 10 tablet delivers powerful performance in an uber-stylish and compact body. This could be an ideal computer for people who spend most of their time on email and office productivity. The digipen and excellent tablet design...
