Huawei MateBook

 

The MateBook is Huawei's first attempt at a Windows-powered laptop replacement, taking on the likes of the Microsoft Surface Pro 4 and Samsung Galaxy TabPro S. With a 2-in-1 design that includes a detachable keyboard and a stylus for drawing and making...

Huawei MateBook review

 

Move over Microsoft? Huawei's got its own take on the 2-in-1

Superb screen for the money ; Stylus is great for sketching and note-taking ; Fingerprint scanner comes in handy

Basic battery life ; Weak keyboard dock ; Only charges with bundled plug

A solid screen and stylus smarts for your cash, but not the hybrid to steal the show from Microsoft’s Surface

Huawei MateBook review: 5-hours of friendship

 

One glance at the Huawei MateBook and it's clear the Chinese company is hankering for a slice of the laptop-replacement market. This slim-build Windows 10 tablet is really well made, not a cheap knock-off competitor to the likes of the Microsoft...

Slim and well built Windows 10 tablet, fingerprint scanner is great, keyboard and trackpad work well, optional MatePen stylus

Poor battery life, keyboard not included, stand is limited by available angles and no good for on-the-go lap work, just one USB-C port

At first glance the Huawei MateBook gets lots right as 2-in-1s go: it's slim, well made, has a decent size keyboard and trackpad (if you buy it anyway), plus a built-in fingerprint scanner that helps stand it out from the crowd. It's not as powerful as...

Huawei MateBook review

 

Huawei's first Windows 10 tablet is beautiful and flawed

Premium materials ; Clever fingerprint reader integration ; Immaculate screen

Below average battery life ; Disappointing performance ; Flimsy keyboard cover

Huawei's first Windows tablet is a stunner in design and features, but below average performance and battery life are troubling issues.

Huawei Matebook review - a super slim Surface Pro 4 rival

 

The Huawei Matebook is a gorgeous Windows 10 tablet, but it's hampered by poor battery life and a fussy, underwhelming keyboard case

As a result, I can’t give the Matebook a whole-hearted recommendation at this point, although this might change once we get official UK pricing. Based on our current estimates, it’s just a little too close to the cost of a Surface Pro 4 to make it...

Huawei Matebook review

 

What is Huawei? Just a Chinese company that could become the No. 1 phone maker in the world. Did you know the Google Nexus 6P is a Huawei? You do now. But the company's latest device isn't a phone -- it's a 12-inch Windows tablet that's as slim as an...

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 review - hands on with Surface Pro 4 rival

 

Huawei's MateBook looks to take on the Surface Pro 4 and other productive tablet hybrids

Huawei MateBook review: Can it beat the Surface Pro 4?

 

Beautiful tablet design undermined by terrible battery life and a sub-par keyboard case

The Huawei MateBook isn’t yet available to buy in the UK, but with prices for the tablet starting at €799 (£660 at the time of writing) for the Intel Core m3 version, it should be cheaper than both the Surface Pro 4 and Samsung Galaxy TabPro S when it...

The Huawei Matebook is the latest tablet from the young mobile-phone brand that has recently branched into tablets. We've seen some interesting tablets from this Chinese manufacturer, which manage to balance performance and price, and the Matebook...
