Reviews for the Huawei MateBook X Pro 2021

87.8% Huawei MateBook X Pro 2021 Review: A Great Laptop You Probably Can't Buy | Notebookcheck
The MateBook X Pro is still one of the sharpest-looking Ultrabooks you can buy despite its years-old visual design. However, a few aspects haven't aged well at all for Huawei's flagship model.
80% Huawei MateBook X Pro (2021) review: Super sharp shooter
Source: Pocket Lint English
This laptop has a limited appeal, mostly because there's only an ultra-high-end spec version in the UK, which costs a packet. However, Huawei does a good job of justifying that cost, with great build quality, a sharp and bright screen, and an ambitious haptic touchpad.

The Huawei MateBook X Pro’s build quality is excellent and the screen is sharp and bright. Huawei’s Apple-style haptic touchpad is a success, and the device runs quiet, if not outright silent because this is an Intel Core-powered laptop, after all. What do you miss? Lovely as the screen it, it doesn’t have wide gamut colour. And while the battery life is solid, it isn’t class-leading.

80% Huawei MateBook X Pro (2021) review: A fine laptop but it needs an overhaul
Source: Expert Reviews English
The MateBook X Pro story is simple. An already very good ultraportable has just got a little better thanks to the latest Intel silicon. The problem is that it’s the only major upgrade, and the display is actually a bit worse. The position of the webcam is still farcical, and the usefulness of the Huawei file- and screen-sharing technology is blunted by the fact that nobody is buying Huawei's Android smartphones at the moment. Overall, then, it’s still good, but definitely in need of some overdue TLC.

83% Huawei Matebook X Pro (2021) Review – Great For Work And A Little Bit Of Play
Source: Pokde English
I had a good time with the HUAWEI MateBook X Pro. It has a beautiful design, premium build, amazing screen, decent battery life as well as good audio. However, there are some issues with the HUAWEI MateBook X Pro. Some of these issues are those mentioned before such as the awkward webcam placement, the slight lack of connectivity ports, the thermal issues and the wonky trackpad. The trackpad on the MateBook X Pro is really not good to the point where I resorted to using a mouse due to the sheer frustrations it gave me. Regardless of these shortcomings, I still think that the HUAWEI MateBook X Pro is perfect for those looking for a great work companion as well as looking great while using it. The screen is an absolute beaut and the touchscreen will prove useful during presentations. It is also great for one or two Netflix binge sessions and the speakers work pretty well. Also, it can handle some gaming as well albeit at a limited capacity.

80% Huawei MateBook X Pro (2021) review

The Huawei MateBook X Pro gets a 2021 refresh to go head-to-head with other products in the 'luxury laptop' market, such as the 13-inch M1 MacBook Pro and the Dell XPX 15. In fact, the first version of the MateBook X Pro impressed us so much back in 2018 that we awarded it a coveted 'best in class' award and stuck it right at the top of our list of the best laptops at the time. That sadly seems to have created some very imposing shoes to fill since, despite being impressed with this new offering, the MateBook X Pro (2021) falls flat in a few key areas. A glaring one is regional availability, with the device only available throughout China and parts of Europe at the moment, though Huawei has confirmed there are plans to make the product available in the USA through third-party retailers like Amazon - eventually.

In the fourth year of the same design the MateBook X Pro is beginning to feel a little long in the tooth, most notably in that poor webcam, and below-par battery life doesn't help matters. The design does still feel surprisingly slick though, and the keyboard and trackpad are among the best out there. This will be a fantastic purchase for some, but the few significant flaws will rule it out for others.

Although it’s subtly enhanced for 2021 and still as slick as ever, the Huawei MateBook X Pro falls short given its limited availability, short battery life, and awkward webcam placement.

The Huawei MateBook X Pro 2021 is a decent laptop, but not necessarily a good MacBook alternative. Yes, it has a bright display, a comfortable keyboard, a fast SSD and long battery life. But its middling performance, limited ports, wonky webcam and high price are tough to overlook.

Huawei MateBook X Pro review: A great PC with a WFH deal-breaker
Source: Neowin English
There's a lot of good here, and unfortunately, one major deal-breaker. Huawei took what's historically been a winning formula and basically bumped up the specs. It's got a new Emerald Green color and a haptic touchpad, but for the most part, the thing that's new here is the addition of 11th-gen processors and the lack of a dedicated GPU. And being that this has always been a winning formula, it's understandable to see why Huawei didn't think to change it.

The Huawei MateBook X Pro blends robust specs with stunning aesthetics and build quality. But all this hardware doesn't come cheap and it's not a huge upgrade over last year's model. Still, it's a fine buy for anyone looking for a powerful, stylish Windows laptop.
