Reviews for the Huawei MateBook 16s i7

86.4% Huawei MateBook 16s Review - Large multimedia laptop with an Alder Lake i7 | Notebookcheck
Huawei has now furnished the multimedia notebook MateBook 16 with an Intel processor and calls it the MateBook 16s. Buyers also get a Thunderbolt 4 port, a state-of-the-art Wi-Fi 6E module, and a bit more key travel. Other than that, there isn't much of a difference. Does that justify a price increase of 500 Euro (US$510)?

The Huawei MateBook 16s is one of the best big screen Windows laptops you can buy today — sporting a beautiful display, a great keyboard and touchpad, and powerful 12th Gen Intel performance in a sleek chassis. I would love to see a dedicated GPU configuration for creative pros and maybe a number pad-featured alternative, to speed up data entry in the future.

Huawei MateBook 16s 2022 Review
Source: Yugatech English
To wrap things up, the Huawei MateBook 16s 2022 checks the necessary boxes needed for a laptop but isn’t the best performing overall, and definitely the most appealing. It is ideal for productivity or entertainment and provides a sleek and sturdy design offering all the ports needed for someone on the go. Despite the downside of having to compromise on the battery life, the Huawei MateBook 16s 2022 gives spectacular speed thanks to the 12th Generation H-series processor. At a price of PHP 89,999 for the Core i7-12700H configuration, there are definitely better options that can provide a discreet GPU in the market with faster SSD speeds in the market.

Huawei MateBook 16s review: Big-screen machine created for creatives
Source: The Tech Revolutionist English
The Huawei MateBook 16s isn’t made for everyone – but it definitely isn’t trying to be. The laptop is for someone who is looking for an affordable and well-built 16-inch laptop with great battery life and an expansive and colorful screen. But if you’re looking for a sizeable laptop with a 4K OLED panel or an Nvidia RTX GPU then you might want to look the other way.

90% Huawei MateBook 16s (2022) Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
I have used my fair share of Huawei laptops and I have to say that the MateBook 16s is one of my favourites. I really enjoy the large screen, as it allows me to have multiple tabs open at once to work, and it performs great when I want to binge Netflix and YouTube after work. The 12th-Gen Intel H-Series processor is also ridiculously fast for a laptop in this price range, proving itself in the speedy load-up times and ability to run multiple software and apps at once without faltering. This does come at the price of the battery, which isn’t the best I’ve seen, but can be solved as long as you’re near to a plug socket. In my opinion, this is the best 16-inch laptop you can get from Huawei right now, and I would implore anyone interested in a large-screened machine to give this one a chance.

80% Huawei MateBook 16S review: premium and powerful
Source: Stuff TV English
For a go-anywhere machine with a sizeable screen, the MateBook 16S hits a lot of the right notes. It’s well-built, has a colourful display, and can be equipped with the kind of power that would embarrass many desktop PCs. At £1499 for an M1 MacBook-baiting Core i9 model, it also looks like stonkingly good value for anyone that can take advantage of all that CPU muscle. In real-world use though, the chip is rarely able to fully flex its muscles. Anyone in need of so much power will probably also want a dedicated GPU, which isn’t an option here. That makes the i7 version our laptop of choice – it’s still mighty quick, and matches the i9 version everywhere else. Creatives that need more than Photoshop might be underwhelmed, but the Matebook 16S absolutely earns a place on the shortlist for other workers that aren’t chained to an office desk.

100% Huawei MateBook 16s review: Big screen, big power, small size
Source: Expert Reviews English
Like the MateBook 14s, the new 16s is a definite step forward for Huawei. The 3:2 display and powerful sound system are both up there with the very best in class even if the panel doesn’t have the same 90Hz refresh rate as the smaller laptop. The keyboard is good and the new “smart” 1080p webcam is a very nice feature to have if you spend any time on videoconferencing calls. Performance from the 12th generation Intel chip is nothing short of outstanding, and I’m also happy that Huawei hasn’t joined the stampede to rid its compact machines of Type-A USB ports, while the presence of a Thunderbolt 4 port is always nice to see.

76% Huawei MateBook 16s Review – Power Packed Portable Performer
Source: Hitech Century English
On its own merits, the 16-inch Huawei MateBook 16s is a well built laptop with a premium finish, excellent endurance and performance across the board with its enviable Intel Evo certification attesting to its capabilities though the somewhat hefty weight makes it a pain to carry for long distances. This is one of the best 16-inch productivity oriented laptops available in the market and is is ideal especially if you are already invested in the Huawei ecosystem. The 16-inch Huawei MateBook 16s is an ideal choice if you’re already invested in the Huawei ecosystem and is well worth a look if you need a productivity-oriented laptop with a large touch display and powerful Intel Evo rated performance.

Huawei MateBook 16s Review: Huawei is really strengthening its ecosystem
Source: XDA Developers English
While the Huawei MateBook 16s is a great laptop on its own, the key thing that puts it above and beyond competitors is all of the work that the company has put into software. It’s designed to work seamlessly with the rest of the Huawei ecosystem.

First Impressions: Huawei MateBook 16s (2022) Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
Despite only spending a short time with the Huawei MateBook 16s, I thought it was a solid laptop and ideal choice for anyone looking to engage in entry-level creative work on a large screen. The large 16-inch screen looked bright and vibrant, making it ideal for photo editing, multitasking ands even Netflix binigng sessions. I do think the starting price of £1299.99 is a little steep given the lack of a discrete GPU, but the 12th-Gen H-Series Intel processor and Intel Evo certification should make it a speedy device that I would expect can breeze though productivity tasks. While I wouldn’t recommend it to any professional or gamer seeing a high-end graphics performance, I think it will work well for anyone after a large portable device with generous screen space.

Huawei MateBook 16S hands-on review: premium and powerful

For a go-anywhere machine with a sizeable screen, the MateBook 16S hits a lot of the right notes.

At £1499 for an M1 MacBook-baiting Core i9 model, it also looks like stonkingly good value for anyone that can take advantage of all that CPU muscle. We won’t be giving it a star rating until we’ve had a chance to do some proper testing (to see if the cooling system really can tame Intel’s toasty new silicon) and given the battery a real workout. Right now, though, it absolutely earns a place on the shortlist for creatives and workers that aren’t chained to an office desk.

90% Huawei MateBook 16s (2022) review
Source: Tech Advisor English
The MateBook 16s certainly won’t be for everyone, but it’s not trying to be. Although Huawei has tried its best to keep things trim, most people don’t need a laptop this big or bulky, and will be better off with smaller alternatives. For those who need the extra screen space, the 3:2 display here will be a big part of the 16s’s draw. It’s expansive, well proportioned, and carefully colour-calibrated, and is certainly one of the biggest and best displays available at the price. CPU performance is also exceptional thanks to Intel’s 12th-gen H-series chips, making this a powerful performer. The lack of a dedicated GPU option will undeniably limit the appeal to serious video editors or anyone hoping to use this to game, but don’t write off the integrated Iris Xe graphics, which provide plenty of oomph for office work and even photo editing and graphic design. If you want a 4K OLED panel or an Nvidia RTX GPU then the MateBook 16s won’t be for you – but then nothing at this price point will be. But with plenty of power in a relatively compact chassis, and all at a competitive price...

Huawei MateBook 16s initial review: Taking on the MacBook Pro
Source: Pocket Lint English
The Huawei MateBook 16s is certainly a striking laptop in terms of design. It offers a premium look and feel, with plenty of features on board. The large touch display is great and responsive and there's plenty of punch in terms of colours, while the surrounding slim bezels make for a lovely viewing experience. Whilst we couldn't test the performance of the MateBook 16s during our brief time with it, it's certainly a device we are looking forward to trying out properly.
