Huawei recently launched a slim and powerful laptop with excellent keyboard named Huawei Matebook X pro. The MateBook X Pro 2020 has a winning design and upgrades the chips to the latest Intel for a powerful and surprisingly affordable machine. The deck of the machine has a large, smooth and precise trackpad, which snaps down. It works great, but this has a slight crackle in the trackpad, which was a common problem with the previous generation model. The keyboard is excellently backlit with well-spaced, solid-feeling keys and enough travel for a satisfying typing experience. This machine has all the essential features with extraordinary beauty. Let’s discuss it’s specifications and feature that make this laptop more desirable.
Only one display option is available for the MateBook X Pro, a reflective 3: 2 capacitive touchscreen that operates at a native resolution of 3000×2000. Subjectively, the image quality is superb thanks to the bright colours and amazing display content. The display is undoubtedly the strong point of the MateBook X Pro. The display used is a so-called LTPS panel without the need for backlighting. Thanks to its compact nature this technology allows very high resolutions.
The theoretical maximum display brightness of 450 nits was far surpassed by the 530 nits achieved by our review unit. The contrast ratio was excellent at nearly 1700: 1 and we didn’t notice any screen bleeding at maximum brightness with the naked eye. What we found is PWM flicker at brightness levels of 40% and below. However, at 29 kHz we expect no problems or other consequences.
Overall, the Huawei MateBook X Pro performs very well. Windows 10 is fast and responsive, and using it daily for general use, we have absolutely no complaints. Huawei’s inclusion of the 10th generation of Intel processors is a good choice, bringing performance improvements to this thin and light laptop over previous models. The Intel Core i5-10210U processor featured in the model under review is a quad-core processor with a base frequency of 1.6 GHz and a boost of 4.2 GHz. Coupled with 16 GB of RAM, it offers an excellent experience with Windows 10, taking multitasking at ease.
However, we did notice that the processor seemed to slow down during intensive activities and benchmarks. This is likely due to the fanless design of the Huawei MateBook X Pro (2020). The lack of fans means that this laptop is practically silent, and while that’s a good thing, it also means the MateBook X (2020) struggles to stay calm. As a result, when the processor is overloaded with work, the laptop overheats, and when it reaches a certain temperature, the performance of the CPU is throttled, thereby reducing performance and heat.
In terms of battery life, this device is can be used for six to seven hours from a single charge of the Huawei MateBook X Pro’s 56Wh battery when using the computer for mostly work-related tasks.
The introductory price of Huawei Matebook X Pro is $1450. Price can be vary in different countries and states. For further information visit the official website of the Huawei.
