Reviewing the latest launch from Huawei. Its called the Huawei Matebook X Pro .
2018 sees a new laptop from Huawei and JustInReviews would like to review it for you under the latest technology umbrella. It’s called the Huawei Matebook X Pro.
Majority would now feel that Huawei has figured out how to bring to the table a luxurious, durable and performant laptop post the Dell XPS 13. In fact, the brand accomplished such a design by emulating innovators rather closely, however none of its ancestors have possessed the capacity to accomplish this balance of form and function. Let’s now lay our hands on this…
The aluminum make of this one would remind us a considerable measure of Apple’s MacBooks, and that cannot be called a bad thing. Not just is it a thin, silver wedge (additionally made in Space Gray), it appears easy to open its lid with one hand, a characteristic of Apple’s notebooks. It likewise dons a sparkly inclined edge around its keyboard area, which the MacBooks don’t have.
This 14-inch Huawei Matebook weighs 2.9 pounds and happens to be 0.6 inches thick. The Huawei logo – which resembles a chopped Apple into a bundle of wedges – may be not as elegant. Additionally, the MateBook X Pro’s lid and edges appear flatter, without the tapered bends of the MacBook Air.
On the left side, you’ll discover the MateBook X Pro’s Thunderbolt 3 port, USB Type C port along with the headphone jack. Its square shaped, USB 3.0 Type-A port sits by the right edge.
The MateBook X Pro’s fingerprint scanner, which utilizes for Windows Hello sign-in, is subtly situated in its power button, and is known to quickly log you in. On similar lines, other famous brands like MacBook Pro etc. put to use their power buttons as fingerprint scanners, while the Specter 13 lacks one.
The 13.9-inch IPS (in-plane switching) display has got a thin, 4.4mm bezels encompassing it. This helps keep the overall size of the laptop down to just shy of 12 inches wide. Huawei claims that the device is the world’s first ‘FullView’ notebook, having a 91% screen to body ratio.
It’s currently a touchscreen that is said to have a snappy response and protected by a Gorilla Glass to shield it from getting scratched. It likewise has a 3K (3,000 x 2,000) resolution, which prompts to a 260 PPI (pixels per inch) pixel density. Thus, the display can be calles bounty sharp, however you might see that it is all the more ‘square’ than different other laptops.
Owing to it including a 3:2 aspect ratio, ala the MateBook X gadget prior to it, instead of the most widely recognized ratio of 16:9. In this manner, it offers more vertical space compared to other workstations, which could help with efficiency, however watching TV and films on it might bring about more obvious black bars towards the top and base of the display than most other.
The screen appears sharp and vibrant, accompanying a 450 nit brightness ready to tackle some genuine glare even at 50% brightness and 1,500:1 contrast for truly profound blacks.
The Huawei MateBook X Pro is known to deliver a great deal of sweet sound, sufficient to fill a medium-sized room.
The built-in Dolby Atmos Sound System framework can be ignored. The default music setting is known to offer a solid balance for all types of media, comprising of interviews, tunes and latest trailers. The Games preset is said to muddy instrumentals, while the Movie setting is known to overemphasize them, as if to provide more gravitas to a score.
Hardware and performance:
The Intel Core i7-8550U CPU and 16GB RAM in the Huawei MateBook X Pro offers large amounts of speed for nimble and consistent multitasking.
That point, combined with Nvidia MX 150 graphix card, leaves us with a workstation that is set up to go up against about any significant productivity undertaking shy of editing and rendering 4K media. The laptop is reported to keep pace well sufficient with the equivalently spec. Dell XPS 13, overtaking its Geekbench 4 Single-Core score and coming surprisingly close to the margin of error of majority other benchmarks.
To put it plainly, the more all encompassing power profile inside the MateBook X Pro makes it maybe a significantly more appealing option to the Dell XPS 13 and MacBook Pro in terms of performance, a surprising enhancement if one can call it.
This Huawei laptop is claimed to provide near to an entire day of battery power. The system was reported to have endured a marathon 9 hours and 55 minutes on the Laptop Mag Battery Test (web surfing at 150 nits). This running time is over a hour longer than the 8:53 class average and takes over the Specter 13 (5:16), and it’s within the times from the 1080p XPS 13 (11:59) and the 4K XPS 13 (8:23).
One one side, the MateBook X Pro comes with a Microsoft Signature Edition of Windows 10 on its most recent workstation, Huawei embedded only one application into the O.S.: the Huawei PC Manager. This service permits faster wireless connection between it on both the MateBook X Pro and Huawei phones.
The Huawei MateBook X Pro‘s 0.9-MP webcam lies within the button between its F6 and F7 keys, it is told that it shoots at an angle that spotlights on your fingers, and not your face. While this happens to be a boon for security-focused users, the mouthpiece is as yet usable when the webcam is concealed, so, you’re not probably totally safe from the chance of being spied on.
