Reviews for the Huawei MateBook 16 R7 5800H
The new MateBook 16 from Huawei is a powerful multimedia notebook that is particularly impressive thanks to its fast AMD Ryzen processor and high-resolution display. This device offers more CPU performance than most mobile workstations.

The Huawei MateBook 16 is a well-designed notebook with enough performance, battery life, and high-end features to suit those looking for a professional-grade laptop. Combined with a tall 3:2 aspect ratio, this laptop is a joy to use for work as well as play. With fast USB-C charging, Wi-Fi 6 on board, and Windows 11 supported too, this is a future-proof purchase that will last years to come. Although I’m not sure that Huawei’s Multi-screen Collaboration suite is quite the game-changer the company thinks it is. I’m equally unconvinced the display accuracy, single 512GB SSD capacity, and battery life are quite suited to the creative users that Huawei has in mind for the MateBook 16. Running the laptop at full tilt drains the battery just a little too quickly but performance is capped quite heavily when optimizing for battery life. Likewise, the lack of dedicated GPU means the MateBook 16 isn’t great for gaming. Taking a step back to look at the whole picture, Huawei’s MateBook 16 offers a reasonable value proposition.

There’s a lot to love about the MateBook 16; it boasts a sleek design with a stunning 16in IPS display with some of the slimmest bezels on the market, and it’s bright too. However, it’s the 3:2 aspect ratio that steals the show, offering much more screen real estate than 16:9 alternatives, a real boon for workers, multi-taskers and those that spend their time analysing data. The only downside is that it’s not suited to watching movies, with the boxy aspect ratio leaving large black bars atop and below the content you’re watching. The laptop is AMD-powered, sporting either the latest Ryzen 5 or Ryzen 7 alongside a generous 16GB of RAM and 512GB of SSD storage, with more than enough power to handle split-screen multitasking, word processing and even image editing. However, the lack of a dedicated GPU means it isn't the strongest contender when it comes to advanced graphic design, video editing or hardcore gaming. If you do need something with a little more graphical oomph, there are better options in our gaming laptop chart.

As the new product with the largest screen in the Huawei MateBook series product matrix, Huawei MateBook 16 is undoubtedly born to pursue higher productivity. The larger screen brings more freedom to play; whether it is engaged in artistic creation, text editing, or even online course learning, the efficiency can be greatly improved. The large screen has higher productivity. Huawei MateBook 16 is not a pure-play concept, and its hardware configuration does give enough confidence that it can play a role in improving user efficiency. With the addition of HarmonyOS 2, the multi-screen collaboration and intelligent experience of the Huawei MateBook series are also expected to continue to evolve. In addition to the interconnection with mobile phones, headsets, and tablets, there may be more and more new device interconnections and new functions in the future.
