Huawei MateBook 13s Review: Great subnotebook with 90 Hz display

A new rival for the MacBook Air? Huawei’s MateBook 13s is a very compact subnotebook with a high-resolution 13-inch screen as well as a modern Tiger Lake-H35 processor from Intel. Combined with decent input devices and good speakers, the MateBook 13s turns out to be a very interesting package.

In addition to the 14-inch MateBook 14s we reviewed a couple of months ago, Huawei also offers a more compact version with a 13.4-inch display. The MateBook 13s also uses an Intel Tiger Lake-H35 processor, but contrary to the 14-inch device the slightly slower Core i5-11300H. Priced at 1120 Euros, the subnotebook also offers 16 GB RAM, 512 GB NVMe SSD storage as well as a high-resolution 2.5K touchscreen with a 3:2 aspect ratio and a fresh rate of 90 Hz.

Case - MateBook 13s with metal chassis in spruce green

The aluminum chassis is a smaller version of the recently reviewed MateBook 14s and the review unit with the Spruce Green color scheme looks very elegant. Compared to the larger 14-inch model, the side areas next to the keyboard are narrower and the clickpad is not as high, but the size of the keyboard itself is identical. We like the design with the narrow bezels and the quality impression of the MateBook 13s is also great. The build quality is perfect and it just feels like a high-quality item when you use it.

The compact device is also convincing in terms of stability; the keyboard deck only flexes slightly under a lot pressure, which is also required to provoke minor ripples on the screen. However, this should not be an issue in practice. Huawei adjusted the central hinge well and it keeps the display in position up to the maximum opening angle of around 150 degrees. Thanks to the small indentation on the front of the base unit, it is very easy to open the lid. The power button with the fingerprint scanner (which works well) is located on the right side above the keyboard.

The 3:2 aspect ratio screen of the MateBook 13s results in a deeper, but narrower chassis compared to the rivals. Overall, however, the competitors are pretty similar. The weight is little more than 1.3 kg and the power adapter (with the USB-C cable) tips the scale at another 200 grams.

Connectivity - Huawei does not support Thunderbolt

This is the section where we find the biggest difference compared to the MateBook 14s, because Huawei only equips the smaller MateBook 13s with two USB-C ports without Thunderbolt 4 support. There is no apparent technical reason for this, it seems the manufacturer just wanted to save licensing fees. Both ports can be used to charge the battery and drive external displays, however, so there should not be massive limitations in practice. It will not be possible to attach an external GPU, though.

Communication

The Wi-Fi module is from Intel (AX201) and supports the Wi-Fi 6 standard as well as Bluetooth 5.1. Our Wi-Fi test with the reference router Netgear RAX120 determines very good transfer rates when receiving data, but the transmitting performance is a bit lower than expected. There is no WWAN module (LTE or 5G). The signal quality was stable, both with the Wi-Fi 6 router as well as a FritzBox 7490 (Wi-Fi 5).

Webcam

The webcam is not hidden inside the keyboard anymore, but back at the regular position above the display. This is certainly not as secure and there is no mechanical shutter, but the webcam angle is not distorted anymore. It is still a 720p sensor though, which means the picture quality is still poor.

Maintenance

The bottom chassis panel is secured by multiple Torx screws (T5) and is easy to remove. However, many of the components are soldered onto the mainboard and you can only clean the fans and replace the M.2-2280 SSD.

Input Devices - MateBook 13s with 1.5 mm key travel

Keyboard

As mentioned before, the keyboard is identical to the larger MateBook 14s, so the smaller 13s also gets a generous key travel of 1.5 mm. Combined with the precise pressure point, the typing experience is very comfortable and it is no problem to type longer texts. Only the space bar tends to clatter a bit and the vertical arrow keys are pretty small, but otherwise, the layout does not require any learning period. The black keys with the white lettering provide a good contrast and a two-stage white illumination makes it easy to type in darker environments. You can comfortably adjust the duration (or the time before deactivation) in Huawei’s PC Manager.

Touchpad & Touchscreen

Because of the more compact chassis, the height of the clickpad is smaller than on the 14-inch model at 12 x 6.4 cm. The gliding capabilities of the smooth surface are very good and cursor movements work well, just like gestures with up to four fingers. You can physically click the pad in the lower half, but that results in a rather loud and cheap clicking sound. You can also use the capacitive touchscreen for inputs, which works just as expected.

Display - MateBook 13s with 90 Hz and 3:2 aspect ratio

Subpixel array

Only minor backlight bleeding at maximum brightness
Only minor backlight bleeding at maximum brightness

Huawei uses a so called LTPS panel (Low Temperature Poly Silcon), which enables higher pixel density and therefore higher resolutions. The 13.4-inch screen with a 3:2 aspect ratio has a resolution of 2520 x 1680 pixels and a pixel density of 226 ppi. The subjective picture impression of the glossy screen is excellent; all contents are very crisp with rich colors. Thanks to the integrated brightness sensor, the brightness can automatically be adjusted based on the environment lighting.

The manufacturer advertises a luminance of 400 nits, which is clearly surpassed by our review unit with an average brightness of 450 nits. The black value is also very low and results in an excellent contrast ratio of 2035:1. Backlight bleeding is no problem, despite the high brightness, and the response times are also okay. We can detect PWM flickering at 20% brightness or lower (corresponds with a brightness of 47 nits), but the determined frequency of 9.8 kHz is very high and should not cause any problems.

The MateBook 13s offers a 90 Hz mode, but it is not active by default. You can activate it via graphics settings or via key combination (Fn+R). The 90 Hz mode results in a smoother picture impression, especially during scrolling.

We analyzed the display with the professional CalMAN software and the X-Rite i1 Pro 2 spectrophotometer. The picture quality is already very good out of the box and there is no visible color cast, but there are some shades of blue with slightly elevated deviations (higher 3). Our own calibration (profile can be downloaded for free in the box above) can improve the results, but 100% blue still deviates, so this is just a limitation of the display. Still, the MateBook 13s is suited for picture editing in the small sRGB color space, which is almost covered completely.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
22.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 10.4 ms rise
↘ 12.4 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 37 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (23.3 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
44.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 22 ms rise
↘ 22.8 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.692 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 69 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (36.8 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 9804 Hz ≤ 20 % brightness setting
≤ 47 cd/m² brightness

The display backlight flickers at 9804 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 20 % (47 cd/m²) and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 9804 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

As the flickering occurs only on very low brightness settings, it should not be an issue in typical office settings. Nonetheless, use in low light conditions may be straining to the eyes.

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 21792 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The glossy display is a problem outdoors and it is hard to see the display contents on sunny days, despite the high brightness. It is more comfortable in the shade or on overcast days. There are nor problems with the viewing angle stability.

Performance - Huawei uses Tiger Lake-H35

Huawei only offers one configuration of the MateBook 13s. Similar to the larger MateBook 14s, the manufacturer uses 35W CPUs from Intel’s Tiger Lake generation, but in this case with the slower Core i5-11300H as well as the slightly slower version of the integrated Intel Iris Xe Graphics G7 with 80 EUs. Combined with 16 GB RAM (LPDDR4x-3733) in a dual-channel configuration, you get plenty of performance for pretty much every common task.

Huawei’s preinstalled PC Manager offers two power modes; the default "Balanced" setting and "Performance", but the latter only has a small effect on the performance (42 vs. 35 Watts during sustained workloads) and does not really make a difference in everyday tasks. You can also switch between the two modes with the key combination Fn+P. All the following benchmarks and measurements were performed with the "Balanced" mode and the Windows power setting "Best Performance". 

Processor - Core i5-11300H

Intel’s Core i5-11300H is a Tiger Lake CPU with four cores (8 threads) and a nominal TDP of 35 Watts. These H35 CPUs are basically regular Tiger Lake-U processors like the Core i5-1135G7 with higher power levels. The benchmark results are also pretty sobering and the Core i5 does not stand a chance against the AMD U-series processors as well as Apple’s M1 processor in M1 native tests like Cinebench R23, for example.

Huawei MateBook 14s i7 Intel Core i7-11370H: Ø1038 (1027.19-1054.52)

The Cinebench R15 Multi loop clearly shows that the difference between the two performance modes is negligible. If you need the maximum amount of CPU performance, you can certainly use the performance mode. The cooling performance of the MateBook 13s is good, because the CPU can consume more than 40 Watts at the beginning of the tests and then maintain the nominal 35 Watts. The weak performance is therefore caused by the Core i5-11300H itself; the results would be much better with a current AMD chip or one of the brand-new Alder Lake processors. The larger MateBook 14s with the Core i7-11370H can use 45W and is a bit faster, but the difference is once again very small in everyday scenarios.

Overall, the CPU performance is still more than sufficient for everyday tasks and should not be a bottleneck in the foreseeable future, either. The CPU performance is not reduced on battery power. More processor benchmarks are available in our tech section.

System Performance

The MateBook 13s is a very responsive system, which is also a result of the PCIe-SSD, and we did not notice any problems during our review period. All inputs are quickly executed and there were no crashes or stutters. The synthetic benchmark scores confirm our subjective impression.

The laptop is still shipped with Windows 10 Home, but you can upgrade to Windows 11 Home for free.

DPC Latency

Our standardized latency test (YouTube, web browsing, CPU load) does not reveal any latency issues for the MateBook 13s, but we noticed some dropped frames during the playback of a 4K YouTube video.

Storage Devices

The M.2-2280 SSD can be replaced.
The M.2-2280 SSD can be replaced.

Huawei does not implement a modern PCIe 4.0 interface, but the performance of the PCIe 3.0 x4 SSD from Phison Electronics is still very good. You get a storage capacity of 512 GB and 409 GB are free to use after the initial set-up, but similar to other Huawei laptops, there are two partitions. The capacity of the system drive is limited to little more than 70 GB, which means you can quickly get problems if you do not pay attention when you install apps or download files. This partitioning is very annoying in practice and we can only hope Huawei will not use it for future devices. More SSD benchmarks are available here.
