Huawei MateBook 14s Review – Is it Worth the Price?

Is the HUAWEI MateBook 14s worth the price? Here is a review. Read on for my thoughts on performance, design, and price. You’ll be glad you did! Huawei is a good brand for quality laptops, and this one is no exception. But there are many differences between this laptop and its predecessors. You might want to choose the right model for your needs based on your own needs.

Review

The Huawei MateBook 14s is one of the newest premium notebooks from the Chinese manufacturer. It runs full versions of Windows 10 and is upgradable to Windows 11 – the latter is available either automatically or manually. It is equipped with an excellent thermal module and larger speakers. The laptop also offers a unified PC manager application, which facilitates connections to other Huawei devices. Its price is competitive, with a MSRP of $799.

Price

Huawei has released a new all-around performance-driven laptop that addresses one of its major flaws, the webcam. While it doesn’t have the best camera around (it’s hidden in the bezel), it does unlock with Windows Hello facial recognition. The price of the Huawei MateBook 14s starts at RM4999. It will be available in the region from 28 October 2021. If you’re in the market for a new laptop, there are other Huawei models to consider.

Performance

The Huawei MateBook14s comes with a good mix of features that make it a great choice for students, office workers, and anyone who needs a powerful notebook. Its speakers are impressive, with enough volume for multimedia applications. While they aren’t as loud as the speakers of other laptops, they are still good enough for the average user. In addition, the keyboard features backlit keycaps, and each key is responsive, with 1.5mm travel between them. The keyboard, with its backlit keys, is also a nice touch, with its slick surface and NFC sensing area.

Design

The Huawei MateBook is a laptop that is similar in design to the previous generation, the MateBook X Pro. It has the same angled top and bottom design, and the webcam has moved back to its usual place above the display. It comes in two different colour options: spruce green for the 512GB version, and space grey for the 1TB model. The laptop has a satin finish that prevents fingerprints.

Touchscreen display

The display on the Huawei MateBook14s i7 features a high-resolution screen with a maximum brightness of 450 nits and a resolution of 2.5K. Its display is also 100% sRGB and has a 1500:1 contrast ratio. The screen has a light sensor and has achieved TUV Rheinland Low Blue Light (Hardware Solution) and Flicker-Free certification.

Speakers

The speakers on the HUAWEI MateBook fourteens are fairly loud. We measured the output to be 80dB at head level. They exhibited a moderate amount of vibration from the chassis and an above-average bass response for its class. Overall, we were pleased with the performance. Here are some of the other features that the MateBook 14s has to offer. Here are some of the most notable. After using the device for a day, we’re ready to purchase one for ourselves.

Keyboard shortcuts

If you’re a power user, you’ll appreciate the powerful processing power of the HUAWEI MateBook 14s. This device uses an 11th Generation Intel Core Processor, and has integrated graphics from Intel Iris X. Activating performance mode allows the CPU to be boosted to 45W, or thermal design power. TDP is a measurement of the amount of workload the computer can handle.
