Huawei MateBook D 14 review: Quiet office laptop with a long battery life

Elegant. The 14-inch laptop from Huawei includes a Tiger Lake processor, brings an elegant metal case, produces only little noise, and offers a long battery life. At the time of our test, the whole package is available starting from 600 Euros (~$652).

The current incarnation of the Huawei MateBook D 14 - an elegant 14-inch office laptop - comes from the model year 2021 and is currently sold at a price starting from around 600 Euros (~$652). It includes an Intel Core i5-1135G7 CPU, 8 GB of RAM (LPDDR4X-4266), and a 512-GB SSD. The competitors include devices such as the Gateway Ultra Slim 14.1 GWTC51427, the HP Envy 14, the Dell Inspiron 14 5425, and the Acer Swift 3 SF314-43.

We already know the MateBook D 14, since we tested several similar sibling models over the years that shared an identical construction. This includes models such as the Honor MagicBook 14 (Core i7-1165G7) and the AMD MateBook (Ryzen 5 3500U).

Case and Equipment - The MateBook offers an elegant metal case

Huawei uses an elegant metal case that is kept in a matte grey color (Space Grey). The laptop doesn't show any faults in workmanship, and the base unit and lid offer sufficient stiffness. The maximum opening angle of the lid is 180 degrees. The battery, which is screwed instead of glued in, as well as the rest of the hardware are accessible after removing the bottom of the case.

The laptop has two USB-A connections (1x USB 2.0, 1x USB 3.2 Gen 1) and a single USB-C port (USB 3.2 Gen 1) that is also used to charge the laptop (Power Delivery). DisplayPort via USB-C is not supported, so with the HDMI port, there is only a single available video output port. The laptop does not offer a storage card reader.

The WLAN transfer rates we determined under optimal conditions (no additional WLAN devices nearby and close distance between laptop and server PC) turn out very good, even though they still remain slightly below the capabilities of the Wi-Fi chip (Intel AX201).

The webcam (0.9 MP, 1280 x 720 pixels max.) of the laptop is hidden in the keyboard, disguised as a key between the F6 and F7 keys. Pressing this "camera" key will cause the webcam to slide out and back in. The camera produces decent results with a relatively low color deviation.

Input Devices - The Huawei laptop includes keyboard illumination

The MateBook D 14 includes an illuminated Chiclet keyboard, with keys that offer a short stroke and clear pressure point. While typing, the keyboard only offers a minimal give, which does not interfere with the typing tasks. The two-step keyboard illumination is controlled with a function key. Overall, Huawei delivers a keyboard here that is suitable for everyday tasks.

The smooth surface of the multitouch-capable ClickPad (~12.1 x 6.4 cm; ~4.8 x 2.5 in) facilitates sliding of the fingers. The pad also responds to inputs in the corners and offers a short hub and clear pressure point.

Display - IPS but dark

Pixel grid
Pixel grid

The matte 14-inch display with 1,920 x 1,080 pixels offers a good contrast of 1,265:1. However, with a maximum brightness of 258.3 cd/m², the target of > 300 cd/m² is not reached. On the other hand, most competitors aren't much better in this regard either, and only the Envy 14 brings a very bright display.

The display of the D 14 shows some flickering (25,000 Hz) at brightness levels of 30% or below, which could lead to headaches or eye problems for sensitive users.

* ... smaller is better

In the state of delivery, the display offers a decent color reproduction, and with a deviation of around 4, the target of DeltaE < 3 is barely missed. While a calibration only drops the deviation to 3.6, it ensures a more even reproduction of the grayscale. The screen is unable to cover the AdobeRGB (43%), sRGB (63%), and DCI-P3 (42%) color spaces. With this, the panel is not designed for application scenarios that depend on color accuracy. Most of the competitors perform at eye-level here as well, with the exception of the panel of the Envy 14, which offers complete sRGB color space coverage.

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
17 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 9 ms rise
↘ 8 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 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 34 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.3 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
26 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 3 ms rise
↘ 23 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 31 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (33.4 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 25000 Hz ≤ 30 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 25000 Hz (worst case, e.g., utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 30 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 25000 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17560 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Performance - Huawei uses Tiger Lake

With the MateBook D 14, Huawei offers a mobile laptop in its portfolio that brings sufficient computing performance for Office and Internet applications, as well as simple games.

Test Conditions

You can switch between the manufacturer specific performance modes ("Performance" and "Balanced") via the Fn + P key combination. We performed the tests with the "Balanced" mode activated.

The "Performance" mode can only be used in mains operation with a battery level of at least 20%. The mode justifies its name, increasing the multi-thread CPU performance. In addition, the GPU is allowed to run constantly at its maximum clock speed.

Performance Balanced
Power Limit 1 28 Watt 25 Watt
Power Limit 2 60 Watt 60 Watt

Processor

The Core i5-1135G7 quad-core processor of the Tiger Lake generation runs at a basic clock speed of 2.4 GHz, which can be increased via Turbo to 3.8 GHz (all cores) and up to 4.2 GHz (single core). Hyperthreading with two threads per core is supported. The benchmark results range around the average levels for the CPU or above, depending on the performance mode used.

The CB15 loop test shows that the CPU Turbo is used constantly during multithread load, but the CPU is only able to run at full speed for a short time period, regardless of the selected mode. After several seconds, the clock speed drops. This behavior is more pronounced with the "Balanced" mode activated than with the "Performance" mode.

DPC Latencies

The standardized Latency Monitor test (web surfing, 4k video reproduction, Prime95 high load) attests the laptop with fairly low latencies. However, there appears to be a problem with one of the drivers. Future updates might lead to some improvements or also make things worse in this regard.

Storage Solution

Huawei has equipped the MateBook with a PCIe 3 SSD (M.2 2280) from Phison, which offers a storage capacity of 512 GB. The available storage space is split into a Windows (119 GB) and a data partition (337 GB). While the transfer rates turn out good, this is not one of the top models among SSDs. During the DiskSpd loop, it struggles with some slight performance drops due to thermal throttling.

A PCIe SSD serves as the system drive.
