Reviews for the Huawei MateBook X 2020 i5

80% Huawei MateBook X 2020 review
Source: Tech Advisor English
The MateBook X is a pretty bit of kit, with an exceptionally slim and lightweight design and a keyboard and touchpad that make the laptop a joy to use. That comes with compromises to ports, performance, and that webcam, but I think the trade-offs will be worth it for all but the power user.

80% Huawei Matebook X review – late-2020 (fanless Intel Core, 3:2 display)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
The craftsmanship and build quality, the lightweight and compact form-factor, the good-quality 3:2 touchscreen, the inputs or the fine audio for this size, all push the Huawei MateBook X laptop above many of its peers in the premium Windows ultrabook segment. But despite all these, this is merely a niche product meant for a tight segment of potential buyers once you also factor in its main quirks: the performance, battery life, and cost.

This laptop also has enough power for the majority of most people’s needs, as long as you don’t want to play too many games. The trackpad isn’t quite as much of a hit as the rest of the hardware, but you’ll get used to it fairly quickly if the rest of the highlights here appeal.

The Huawei MateBook X (2020) is a stylish, thin and light premium laptop that punches well above its weight. It's pricey, but still offers excellent value for money, with superb performance and battery life. Shame about the webcam placement, however.

Huawei MateBook X review: A real achievement in laptop design
Source: Pocket Lint English Archive.org version
This laptop explores the extremes, ideal for those willing to pay a few hundred quid more for 1kg weight and a tiny footprint. Its performance, weight, size, build quality and battery life are rarely as finely balanced as they are here. The MateBook X is a real achievement. And a real expense.

Source: T3 English Archive.org version
If you want some decent computing power in a form factor that's super lightweight and easy on the eye, then the Huawei MateBook X (2020) could be the Windows 10 laptop for you – it certainly doesn't let down what has been a strong series of MateBook laptops.

NVIDIA GeForce MX250: Successor of the MX150 and still based on the same Pascal GP108 chip (similar to the desktop GT 1030) but with higher clock speeds. Available in two versions, a normal 25 Watt version and a low power version with 10 Watt TDP and reduced performance. The 25 Watt version e.g. offers a 21% higher boost clock than the old MX150 leading to a 5% performance gain.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


i5-10210U: Comet Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced in 14nm++). The CPU cores can clock between 1.6 and 4.2 GHz (all 4 cores 3.9 GHz max.) with HyperThreading (8 threads). The integrated memory controller supports LPDDR4-2933 and using cTDP up/down the performance can be adjusted by the OEM (10 - 25 Watt possible, 15W default). Compared to the faster i5-10510U, the level 3 cache was reduced from 8 to 6 MB.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.
