Huawei MateBook E review: Round two still has work to do


The original MateBook didn't have a particularly long battery life per charge, nor was the keyboard cover's stand very well designed. The MateBook E

Improved keyboard cover ; Infinitely variable stand ; Decent screen ; Integrated fingerprint scanner ; Near silent operation

Battery life still isn't great ; Upright typing position not too comfortable ; Expensive for moderate spec ; Hard to locate in UK

The original MateBook didn't have a particularly long battery life per charge, nor was the keyboard cover's stand very well designed. The MateBook E fixes this latter issue with a more creative keyboard cover, but the device doesn't go far enough to...

Huawei MateBook E review: Gorgeous but lacks power


A huge improvement on the first MateBook, thanks in main to a better keyboard case

Slim and lightweight ; Gorgeous 3:2 aspect ratio display ; Excellent keyboard case

Relatively slow performance ; Expensive

There’s nothing horribly wrong with Huawei’s MateBook E, but it's neither the best 2-in-1 you can buy nor the best value. If you're after the former, you need to go for a Core i7 2017 Microsoft Surface Pro and if you want to save some cash, opt for the...

Huawei MateBook E review


You will probably either love or loathe the idea of a 2-in-1. But as the MateBook E shows, there are real advantages to choosing one over a traditional laptop.

The MateBook E is a clear improvement from the first generation and is on par with the Surface Pro as the best Windows 10 hybrid device. The well-built and included keyboard cover is the quiet star of the show here, as there’s not much you can do to...

Huawei MateBook E review: Hands-on with Huawei’s second gen Surface Pro 4 rival


A huge improvement on the first MateBook, thanks in main to a better keyboard case

I haven’t yet been able to run full benchmarks and battery life tests, and we don’t have final UK pricing yet, although the euro prices, which start at €999, set a worrying precedent. However, so far the Huawei MateBook 2 looks to be a considerable...

Huawei MateBook E


Despite a capable, high-quality touch screen and iPad Pro-like looks, the Huawei MateBook E doesn't measure up to many competing detachable 2-in-1s.

Thin and light. Responsive and crisp touch screen. Full-size keys. USB adapter included.

Lackluster performance. Relatively short battery life. Subpar trackpad. Lacks angled keyboard. Pre-partitioned hard drive.

Ultimately, the MateBook E is less than the sum of its parts: a gorgeous display, a thin and light form factor, and processor, memory, and storage options that you'd expect to find on a laptop. Bring it all together, though, and you get an...

Huawei MateBook E Review and Ratings


The MateBook E delivers a spiffy-looking 12-inch tablet and a darn good keyboard cover at an attractive price for a premium 2-in-1. But so-so performance and a lack of ports keep it from realizing its full potential.

Moderate price versus Surface Pro devices includes keyboard folio ; Surprisingly good keyboard for a detachable 2-in-1 ; Stylish design, solid build quality ; Silent operation

Middling performance and battery life ; Single USB Type-C is only port/slot, with port expander extra-cost ; No rear-facing camera or stylus

All MateBook E models come with Windows 10 Home as the OS (sorry, no choice to upgrade to Pro), and it is the Microsoft Signature Edition that comes free from trialware and pre-loaded apps and programs you didn’t ask for. Also, Huawei includes a...
