Huawei MateBook E Laptop Review – A new Windows tablet with OLED

MatePad Pro meets Windows. We are already familiar with tablets and laptops from Huawei, but the manufacturer now launches a new convertible called the MateBook E. It is basically still a tablet similar to the MatePads, but it features Windows 11, Tiger Lake CPUs, and Thunderbolt 4.

Huawei has plenty of experience with its MatePad tablet lineup and now goes one step further with the new MateBook E, a 2-in-1 laptop or convertible with Windows 11 as well as Tiger Lake UP4 processors. The manufacturer advertises it as a convertible, but contrary to pretty much any other model on the market, there is no integrated kickstand, so it is basically a Windows tablet.

Huawei uses efficient UP4 versions of the mobile Intel Tiger Lake processors and offers two SKUs, one with a Core i3 processor, 8 GB RAM, and 128 GB SSD storage for 649 Euros, and our review unit with a Core i5 chip, 16 GB RAM, and 512 GB SSD storage for 1199 Euros. Core i5 units are automatically shipped with the corresponding keyboard cover. All models feature the same 12.6-inch OLED screen with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels (16:10).

Case - Like a MatePad Pro

It is not easy to distinguish the new MateBook E from the MatePad Pro based on the design, because both the visuals in Nebula Gray as well as the chassis design with rounded corner is pretty much identical between the two units. The bezels are just 5.6 mm wide and results in a high body-to-screen ratio of almost 90 percent. Both the build quality as well as the stability of the tablet are very good and there are no creaking sounds or picture distortions when we tried to twist the device. The rear of the tablet is made of a slightly roughened and offers good grip, but you can quickly see fingerprints and it is not easy to clean the surface, either.

A direct comparison with the MatePad Pro reveals the fan exhausts at the top, which are required for the active cooling solution. The buttons are very well integrated and do not rattle around, and the power button also implements a fingerprint scanner. It is also possible to attach the optional M-Pencil magnetically at the top edge, but more on that later.

We already mentioned that the MateBook E does not offer an integrated kickstand. The problem is that Windows is much harder to operate just with your fingers compared to Huawei’s own HarmonyOS on the MatePad Pro, for example, so the use of the keyboard cover (including the touchpad) is recommended. The connection with the tablet is very stable and the quality of the keyboard cover also leaves a decent impression. The black material is slightly rubberized and smooth.

Despite the active cooling solution, the tablet only tips the scale at little more than 700 grams and is therefore lighter than convertibles like the Surface Pro. The weight of the full package with the keyboard cover is around 1.15 kg, so it is still a very compact unit.

Connectivity - Huawei uses Thunderbolt 4

Huawei does not save money in terms of ports, because you get a modern USB-C port including full Thunderbolt 4 support. However, you are limited because there is only one port. If you want to attach an external screen, for instance, it should be one with power delivery via USB-C, otherwise the MateBook E will have to run on battery power. Always disconnecting the power adapter when you want to attach a USB drive or external hard drives can be annoying during productive tasks as well. We will later see that the battery runtime of the MateBook E is not great, so you will have to use the power adapter quite often.

Communication - Huawei implements Wi-Fi 6, but no LTE or 5G

Like other modern Windows devices, the MateBook E is quipped with a modern Wi-Fi module (in this case Intel AX201) including support for Wi-Fi 6 as well as Bluetooth 5.1. The transfer rates are very good in combination with our reference router from Netgear (Nighthawk AX12) and we did not notice any signal issues during our review period. Huawei also offers the HuaweiShare technology, which can be used to transfer files between compatible Huawei devices (from smartphone to a MateBook, for example) and is similar to Apple’s Air Drop technology. There is no option for an LTE or even 5G modem, though.

Webcam

The close relationship to the MatePad Pro pays off when we look at the webcams, because they are very good for a Windows device. In addition to a 13 MP sensor (f/1.8, auto focus) on the rear, which can be supported by a flash, Huawei also implements an 8 MP sensor (f/2.0, fix focus) on the front. The quality is much better compared to usual 720p modules and the MateBook E just takes much sharper images and is also very well-suited for video conferences.

Input Devices - Smart Magnetic Keyboard without illumination

The Core i5 SKUs of the new MateBook E are shipped with the new Huawei Smart Magnetic Keyboard by default. It is a keyboard cover including a touchpad and adjustable stand. Windows is still harder to use via touch inputs compared to mobile operating systems and the MateBook E does not have an integrated stand, so the keyboard cover is pretty much a must-have also for the less expensive Core i3 unit.

The keyboard itself has pretty shallow keys, but the typing experience is still okay thanks to the precise and also pretty quiet key strokes. The layout is a bit cramped at the right side and the vertical arrow keys are very small, but the bigger issue is the lack of illuminated keys.

The M-Pencil is held via magnets at the top.

The small clickpad underneath the keyboard (11.3 x 5.7 cm) works well and offers good gliding capabilities, but the unit on our model was a bit clattery. This was also noticeable when we juts tapped the surface or repositioned our fingers. If you depress the pad in the lower half, you are also confronted with a very loud clicking sound. We would recommend an external Bluetooth mouse, at least when you use it as a stationary device.

You can obviously use the capacitive touchscreen for inputs, which works very well. Huawei also offers the optional M-Pencil (first or second generation). It can be attached to the top of the tablet via magnet and is automatically charged and connected (Bluetooth). We cannot tell you anything about the new second generation M-Pencil, but we could test a first-generation model we still had from a MatePad pro. Inputs worked well, but the resistance from the touchscreen surface during writing was a bit high.

Display - MateBook E with 16:10 OLED

Subpixel array
Subpixel array

The highlight of the new MateBook E is definitely the display, because Huawei uses a 12.6-inch OLED touchscreen with a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels (16:10). The subjective picture impression is excellent thanks to the high resolution and very high contrast ratio, which create crisp and vivid images. Due to the rounded edges of the bezels, the picture contents are a slightly hidden in the corners. This is not a big deal in practice, but it is visible nonetheless.

Huawei advertises a brightness of 400 nits and we can confirm this value after our measurements. As it is typical for OLED screens, the black value is 0, so the contrast ratio in infinite in theory. The manufacturer also advertises an optional high-brightness mode with a brightness of up to 600 nits, but we were not able to find a corresponding option in the software, via key combination, or with the brightness sensor. We have already contacted the manufacturer and we will publish the answer as soon as we get it.

Backlight bleeding is no problem for OLED screens, but we can detect the typical PWM flickering at 60 Hz as soon as the brightness drops to 80% (corresponds with a brightness of 226 nits) or lower. The two screenshots in the PWM box below show the PWM flickering at 80 and 40% brightness. If you are sensitive to PWM flickering and maybe already noticed problems with OLED smartphones, you will probably not be happy with the new MateBook E.

* ... smaller is better

Like on other MateBooks, you get additional display software to adjust some aspects like the color temperature, a blue light filter or in the case of the MateBook E even the color space (sRGB or P3). You also have the option to automatically adjust the color temperature based on the environment via brightness sensor.

Our analysis with the professional CalMAN software (X-Rite i1 Pro 2) shows that the picture quality is already excellent out of the box. There is no visible color cast and the DeltaE-2000 deviations compared to the P3 reference color space are already below the important mark of 3. Combined with the full P3 color gamut, it is no problem to edit pictures/videos.

We were not able to improve the display performance with our own calibration, so we do not offer a profile at this point.

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
3.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 1.2 ms rise
↘ 2 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 4 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (23.3 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey

In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.692 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 4 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better 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 60.2 Hz ≤ 80 % brightness setting
≤ 226 cd/m² brightness

The display backlight flickers at 60.2 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 80 % (226 cd/m²) and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 60.2 Hz is very low, so the flickering may cause eyestrain and headaches after extended use.

Flickering occurs even at high brightness setting and may have an effect on the user during everyday use.

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 advertised high-brightness mode would certainly help on very bright and sunny days, because reflections from the glossy touchscreen are definitely an issue. You should look for a place in the shade in order to see the display contents. The overall viewing angle stability of the OLED panel is very good, but there is the OLED typical blue shimmer from certain angles.

Performance - Tiger Lake-UP4

The MateBook E is equipped with Intel Tiger Lake CPUs, but only the very efficient UP4 models, which are operated at much lower TDP values compared to the usual UP3 model like the Core i5-1135G7, which is familiar from many modern ultrabooks. In addition to the Core i5 (4 cores) in our review unit, you can also get an entry-level SKU with the Core i3-1110G4 with just two cores and also a slower version of the iGPU.

Review Settings

Huawei usually equips its MateBooks with an optional Performance mode, and the new MateBook E is no exception. You can activate it via PC Manager software or key combination (Fn + P). The CPU can consume up to 30 Watts for short periods of time in both modes, but quickly levels off at 10 Watts (Balanced) or 12 Watts (Performance), respectively, so there is not a huge difference. We performed the following benchmarks and measurements with the default Balanced mode in general and only checked the effect of the Performance mode in some sections.

Processor - Core i5-1130G7

Intel’s Core i5-1130G7 is a Tiger Lake-UP4 chip and has four cores (eight threads) with a maximum clock of up to 4 GHz or 3.4 GHz for all active cores, respectively. The short-term power consumption is set to 30 Watts, which ensures solid performance figures in peak load scenarios, which are very common during everyday workloads. The performance quickly drops under sustained workloads and the overall performance level is pretty low when you consider the price of 1200 Euros. The results are a bit better with the optional Performance mode, but they are still low in general. The performance does not drop any further on battery power. More benchmark results are available in our CPU section.

System Performance

The subjective performance impression of the MateBook E is solid and there is plenty of RAM at 16 GB, but there can be some stutters or delays when you stress the system a bit more. We notice it during the installation of applications, for example, where there was not much headroom for additional tasks. As long as you only use it for common tasks, however, there should not be any issues.

DPC Lateny

Our standardized latency test shows increased latencies as well as dropped frames during the playback of a 4K YouTube video with the current BIOS version. This means the MateBook E is currently not suitable for real-time audio applications.

Storage Devices

Huawei uses an M.2-SSD, which is attached via PCIe 3.0 x4 interface and the benchmark performance is good, so there should not be any limitations. The SSD offers a storage capacity of 512 GB, and you can use around 408 GB for your own files/apps after the initial set-up. Like on other current MateBooks, however, the SSD is partitioned and you only get 72 GB on the system drive. This can quickly result in capacity problems when you are not careful with installations and downloads. We once again think this is completely unnecessary and we can only hope Huawei will discontinue this method for future products. More SSD benchmarks are available here.

This iGPU is a good choice for everyday workloads and high-resolution video playback is also no problem thanks to the powerful video decoder. The iGPU is, however, hardly suited for gaming. The general performance is very low and it will drop by another 30% after a couple of minutes. You should focus on very old or very simple games from the Windows store. The performance is at least not further reduced on battery power. Please see our Tech section for more GPU benchmarks.
