The evaluation device received by BGR is a dark gray version. BGR indicates that it looks like an Apple laptop at a distance. Once you are closer, you will realize that it is not Apple's LOGO, but HUAWEI.
The Huawei MateBook X Pro is equipped with an excellent 3K screen (3000*2000 resolution, 3:2 aspect ratio) that is officially called FullView. This is called FullView because the screen uses a "borderless" design. And compared to Dell's InfinityEdge screen, Huawei's border is thinner. According to the official description, the proportion of MateBook X Pro screen is as high as 91%, and it is believed that more notebook manufacturers will follow up in the future.
The body is equipped with a 13.9-inch screen, which is 0.6 inches larger than a conventional 13.3-inch screen. But notebook size is better thanMacBookThe Air is small and close to the MacBook Pro. The weight is only 1.33Kg.
So how does Huawei do it? Huawei removes the camera from the front panel and inserts it between F6 and F7.
When you need to use it, you can press the pop-up button and hide it when you don't need it. This will ensure that your camera will not cause much harm even after hacking.
For more security considerations, the user can turn off the microphone through the F7 button. However, there is one thing worth noting: that is, the angle of the camera cannot be adjusted during use.
In appearance is very close to Apple's MacBook Air, but Matebook X Pro performance is much stronger than Air. The notebook is equipped with Intel's eighth-generation Core i7 processor, 16GB of memory and 512GB of SSD, in addition to the Nvidia GeForce MX150 graphics card.
Although this kind of specification configuration cannot compare with the top gaming notebook, it is also sufficient to run most mainstream games smoothly. Foreign media editors tested games such as Fortress Night, CS:GO, Jedi Survival, and Watch Pioneer on this notebook, which can run smoothly. It can be used as a game station after an external monitor and can continue playing for hours.
However, when running the game, this notebook will be hot. Therefore, an external mouse and keyboard are recommended for operation.
The BGR editor admitted that the Macbook series' touchpad experience is excellent, and almost never used a mouse when using the Mac. The MateBook X Pro's touchpad also provides rich gesture interactions, but there are still gaps in the actual experience with Mac devices. This is mainly because of the current Windows 10 system, and the sensitivity must be adjusted during use.
MateBook X Pro supports up to 10 touch interactions. Foreign media plays Hearthstone on touch and discovers that the gaming experience is better than Mac devices.
At running points, the MateBook X Pro scored more than 3,000 in single-core tests and more than 10,000 multi-core scores in the GeekBench 4 test. The top-end 13-inch MacBook Pro has single-core and multi-core scores of 4600 and 9500, respectively.
Keyboard and fingerprint sensor
The MateBook X Pro's keyboard is very similar to the MacBook and uses almost the same design and appearance. If it is a MacBook user, then the keyboard of this device will be very familiar with, do not have time to adjust.
The input experience is also very good, but one of the problems is the location of the trackpad mentioned above. While I was typing, my hand touched the touchpad inadvertently. Although not many times, it also affects the input experience, so you must adjust the sensitivity of the touchpad to avoid it.
It is worth noting that Huawei's MateBook X Pro official claimed to be equipped with a super-fast power button 2.0 technology, enabling incredibly fast log-in regardless of whether the device is in a power-off or sleep mode.
In the actual test, when the user places the fingerprint on the device, the device will be automatically started and run, and the whole process can be described as very fast. Fingerprint unlock failure has never occurred during the entire test.
Huawei Official Says Matebook X Pro Supports 12 Hour Full HDvideoPlay, 14 hours of document processing and up to 15 hours of web browsing. However, there is some shrinkage in the actual test.
The full HD video playback time is 10 hours and 5 minutes. After the document is processed for 5 hours and 35 minutes, the battery power remains 64%.
In actual use, the user does not need to worry about the battery level. The MateBook X Pro supports USB Type-C port charging and can be charged faster than traditional laptops. It takes only 58 minutes to complete the measurement.
