If you are in the market for a new notebook then picking one in today’s times is not easy. There are so many to choose from but most of the time, brands don’t really have any major standout features that make their devices worth the price tag. The same can’t be said for Huawei who continue innovating with its MateBook range. One of the latest devices is the Huawei MateBook 14, a high-end productivity notebook that packs an incredible display, fantastic performance and battery life that will carry you through your workloads.
To teach you more about the Huawei MateBook 14, I have put together a guide on 10 of the best features you can expect to find in this device.
10 Best Features on The Huawei MateBook 14
Before we start, you can read more about the Huawei MateBook 14 on the official site here.
Huawei MateBook 14 2K FullView Display
The most important part of a notebook is the display. The Huawei MateBook 14 packs a 14-inch 2K panel. 2K means the display boasts a resolution of 2160×1440 at 185ppi. This means everything you do on the device will be expressed in fantastic quality. Images are vibrant, the text is sharp and the 300 nits of brightness means you can work in bright conditions as the display gets bright enough to see the screen.
For content creators, the Huawei MateBook 14 also packs all the standard requirements for photo editing and video production. It supports a 100% sRGB colour gamut and a contrast ratio of 1000:1. This means users will see images and content the way they should be presented on a display. It also includes a blue light filter to help reduce eye strain while working.
Huawei MateBook 14 Boasts Touch Screen Support Too
Another great feature of the FullView display is its touchscreen support. This opens up new doors for interacting with the device without the need to use the trackpad or external mouse. The multi-touch support includes easy-to-use gestures. You can take a screenshot of the current view on the display by simply swiping down on the panel with three fingers.
You can also zoom into content by pinching with two fingers and easily scroll down a page by dragging one finger down the document or website.
The Huawei MateBook 14 is Made to be Taken Everywhere
If you are someone who carries your notebook around with you. Be it to class, the office or even to a friend or family member then the Huawei MateBook 14 will fit your lifestyle perfectly. First off, the notebook is 307.5 x 223.8 x 15.9mm. This means the device is incredibly slim and even the bezels around the display are only 4.9mm. Huawei carefully designed this notebook with keeping the size down in mind.
If you are worried about the notebook being damaged while you are moving about don’t be. The Huawei MateBook 14 is made from aluminium alloy metal that complements its design while also providing a stronger hardness to the device. It is more durable and the metal is also light that helps keep the weight down. As for the display, it is made from a high-clarity reinforced glass that adds some extra protection to the panel.
Huawei MateBook 14 Recessed Camera
One amazing feature that lets the Huawei MateBook 14 stand out from other notebooks is the recessed camera. At first glance, you will probably think the device has no camera at all but that is not the case. The camera is actually hidden away underneath a button on the keyboard and pops up and down when you need it.
Not only does this mean your safety is put first and you won’t need to stick tape over the webcam but the removal of the camera around the display helped Huawei make the bezels around the panel so much thinner.
Huawei MateBook 14 Fingerprint Support
If you thought hiding the camera in the keyboard was cool then you will love the fingerprint reader. Huawei has built this sensor into the power button for quick access. This means that, unlike most notebooks that install this on the trackpad, it takes up less room on the device. You simply power on the Huawei MateBook 14 and unlock your Windows 10 account with a touch of your finger.
The fingerprint sensor also contributes greatly to the notebook’s fantastic level of security. No one can get into your Windows without your finger meaning all your data and personal information is safe and secure.
Huawei MateBook 14 Trackpad and Keyboard
If you rely on typing and using the trackpad to navigate through Windows 10 then the Huawei MateBook 14 is your best friend. The notebook boasts a large clickpad where users can easily swipe up and down and perform a range of gestures while working through Windows. It is large enough to support up to four fingers as you move about. It also boasts accidental touch support in case you move your hand over it by mistake.
As for the keyboard, it too is state-of-the-art. Each key’s travel distance has been carefully tweaked to provide the best experience possible. It also packs a full-size keyboard so you don’t need to worry about sacrificing the number pad to make room for the keys.
Huawei MateBook 14 Packs Some Power
When it comes to the daily tasks you need to get done, the Huawei MateBook 14 includes the power and performance to get you through it. It is powered by an 11th-Gen Intel Core-i7 1165G processor that makes everything faster. You can expect to get work done without a hiccup, browse the web with no hassles and edit and tweak photos and videos with ease.
Graphics-wise, the Huawei MateBook 14 includes the Intel Iris Xe Graphics chip that enhances 3D content and supports a range of apps and games. This means you can open up your favourite and take some time off to chill as you explore the wasteland in Borderlands 3 at 1080p 30FPS or even play a few matches of Dota 2 and CS GO at over 60FPS in 1080p.
Huawei MateBook 14 Battery is Superb
The Huawei MateBook 14 has been built with battery life in mind and users can expect to get close to 14 hours of battery life out of the device. When using the device at its max brightness and turning off power saver mode, this is cut down to around 10 hours but it is still impressive and enough to get you through the day.
The Huawei MateBook 14 also charges using a 65W USB Type-C charger that provides a lot of battery charge in a small amount of time. Just 15 minutes on the charger and you can expect up to 3 hours of life back on the device. You can also use the charger to quick charge your other USB Type-C enabled devices like the Huawei P40 Pro.
Huawei Share and The Huawei MateBook 14
Huawei Share makes it incredibly easy to transfer data from your Huawei mobile device to the Matebook 14 with one simple tap. Gone are the cables needed to tether the devices together. Now you just wirelessly send your files over thanks to its close-proximity BlueTooth Sensor.
Instead of plugging your phone in and shifting through the files and folders, you simply select the image and by using Huawei Share on the mobile device, send it through to the MateBook 14.
Huawei MateBook 14 Multi-Screen
There are so many great ways you can link your Huawei device to the MateBook 14 using Huawei Share. One of these is the Multi-Screen support. Users can connect their mobile device to the notebook and control the workings of the phone from their notebook display. If you want a file from your phone, you simply drag it off the screen and across to the desktop.
Huawei Share multi-screen support means you technically now have two displays in one and two operating systems at the palm of your hands. Huawei has also worked hard to ensure that this sharing feature is seamless and hassle-free.
