Huawei MateBook X Pro 2019 Review | Trusted Reviews

 

Huawei's new MateBook X Pro boasts an excellent screen, fetching design, and good performance, but is let down by a not-so-great battery.

The Huawei MateBook X Pro (2019) is an otherwise excellent ultrabook that’s undermined by a poor battery. Unless you’re going to be working somewhere with mains power close by, or you’re OK with lugging around a portable battery pack, I’d approach this...

Huawei MateBook X Pro review

 

A slimline beauty that's ready to crash Apple's party

Ultra-skinny screen bezels ; Powerful CPU/GPU combo for an ultraportable ; Loads of storage and respectable battery life

Touchpad can be finickity ; Webcam angle isn’t very flattering ; Looks a little too familiar

A seriously stylish and powerful Windows laptop with some clever ideas to get the maximum display for your dollar

Huawei MateBook X Pro review: Pro by name, pro by nature

 

With a stunning trim-bezel screen, heaps of power on tap, ample ports (including full-size USB), and a great-looking finish throughout, it MateBook X

Tiny screen bezel is the smallest in the business ; Bright and resolution touchscreen looks superb ; Heaps of power on tap ; Full size USB plus two USB-C for the future ; Discrete graphics (and off-board compatibility too)

Battery life won't hit double figures ; Camera placement isn't right ; Auto-brightness is overzealous ; Screen too glossy and therefore reflects ; No SD card slot

With a stunning trim-bezel screen, heaps of power on tap, ample ports (including full-size USB), and a great-looking finish throughout, it MateBook X Pro is, in many ways, the Windows laptop to outdo the Apple MacBook Pro.

Huawei MateBook X Pro review

 

The best laptop of 2018

Incredibly slick, sensible design ; Gorgeous, bright display ; Strong all-around performance ; Terrific battery life

No SD card slot ; Clever webcam is still flawed ; Mystic Silver is Core i7 only

Huawei has crafted a sleeper hit best laptop of 2018 with its MateBook X Pro, a surprisingly sublime marriage of function and form with few, if any, flaws to speak of for all audiences both professional and prosumer.

Huawei MateBook X Pro review: Huawei’s next-generation MacBook killer

 

Huawei's MateBook X Pro ultraportable laptop is here, and it's an impressive rival to the Apple MacBook

Stunning bezel-less design ; Excellent performance ; Ultra-thin and lightweight

Expensive

Whether it will be able to take the Apple MacBook’s crown in this fiercely competitive category remains to be seen. But one thing’s for certain: if any device is going to do it, there’s no more deserving contender than the MateBook X Pro.

Huawei MateBook X Pro

 

With upgrades including a touchscreen, quad speakers, Thunderbolt 3 and an 8th-gen Intel processor (and MX150 graphics) the MateBook X Pro is a very tempting ultraportable laptop.

Huawei Matebook X Pro review: Perfecting the ultraportable

 

The Huawei Matebook X Pro is slim, light and well-designed: an impressive second outing for Huawei's flagship laptop

If the first Matebook X was a triumph of design and a big surprise given Huawei’s inexperience in the laptop field, the Matebook X Pro is a firm consolidation of its position as a serious contender in the industry.

Huawei MateBook X Pro laptop review

  (Rating Hidden)

Huawei might be more recognisable as a smartphone and tablet maker than a laptop brand, but the company has been producing laptops for years. This being its most expensive laptop, it should rival the likes of the MacBook Pro and Dell XPS 13. We've put...
