Reviews for the Huawei MateBook X Pro 2022

90.3% Huawei MateBook X Pro 2022 laptop review: MacBook Air competitor scores with top IPS display | Notebookcheck
The MateBook X Pro 2022 sports a new case with a larger display, an up-to-date Alder Lake processor from Intel and a wide range of features. The end result is very good, but the Intel Evo certified ultrabook also comes with a hefty price tag of around 2,199 Euros (~US$ 2199).
Huawei MateBook X Pro 2022 12th Gen Review: More Than A New Coat of Paint
Source: ben's gadget reviews English
Huawei's newest flagship laptop, the MateBook X Pro, runs on a 12th-gen Intel core i7, with a gorgeous 14.1-inch 3K display, and a new coating that looks and feels premium yet different from the pack.

90% Huawei MateBook X Pro (2022, 12th gen) Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Huawei MateBook X Pro (2022, 12th-gen) is a great laptop; it offers improvements over its predecessor, including higher levels of brightness, better accuracy for colour-sensitive work, and a 12th-Gen Intel processor. I’m a fan of the sturdy build, and the haptic feedback touchpad. The MateBook X Pro is the ideal laptop for hybrid workers who are looking for a lightweight and portable device that can be used from home or the office. However, with a disappointing battery life and a super-high price, it’s likely to have limited appeal. If you want a speedy work laptop, then this is a great choice. But you can find a similar performance on more reasonably priced devices such as Dell XPS 13 OLED and MacBook Air M2.

Huawei MateBook X Pro (2022) review: Another Huawei great, but still not perfect
Source: XDA Developers English
All in all, I think the Huawei MateBook X Pro has a lot to offer, and while it is a bit pricy, it’s not overly expensive for what you get. Again, the £1,799 price tag includes a fairly expensive monitor in the package, so this isn’t as expensive as it initially appears. For what you pay, you get a phenomenal display, great sound, premium build quality, and a good typing experience. You can’t ask for a lot more. Except, maybe, for it to be available in the United States. My biggest issues with the Huawei MateBook X Pro have to do with the built-in webcam and microphone setup, plus the lack of legacy ports is unfortunate. I also didn’t love some aspects of the touchpad, but you might be able to get used to how it works. As for the Huawei MateView SE, I’d say this is a nice monitor for the price. I find the lack of speakers a bit unfortunate because I would also like to hook up my Nintendo Switch to it, but if you’re only using a laptop, it probably already has better speakers than any monitor in this price range.

90% Huawei's New MateBook X Pro 12th Gen Is Its Most Powerful Portable Yet
Source: Make Use Of English
I absolutely would recommend the X Pro 12th Gen as a daily portable with plenty of horsepower. If you’re not looking for a hardcore gaming laptop, or one for super-intensive design work, then you’re well onto a winner. It might carry a premium price tag, but you’re getting a premium home office laptop here, which is ideal for dealing with productivity tasks like child's play.

Huawei Matebook X Pro 2022 initial review: First look at the classy 12th gen powered laptop
Source: Pocket Lint English
It's safe to say that - on the whole - the updated MateBook X Pro is a refinement of the original 2022 design. But arguably is the laptop that earlier version should have been. The updated magnesium alloy finish gives it a really lovely look and texture, the 14.2-inch display promises vivid but accurate colours, and there's plenty of power here with efficient cooling that it should cope with just about any task. There's no denying it's an expensive machine, but given the improvements it seems - at least - that it's more worthy of that price tag than its predecessor was.

Hands on: Huawei MateBook X Pro (2022) review
Source: Techradar English
We really enjoyed our time with the new Huawei MateBook X Pro. Assuming it doesn’t somehow fall apart during our testing process - which we would be surprised to see - we’ll feel very comfortable recommending it to anyone looking for a lightweight new laptop. At this point, our main criticism is the relative lack of physical port options. There’s four ports in total (not including the headphone jack), all four of which are USB-C; No USB-A, no SD card reader, and no video output in sight. This is likely due to the ultra-thin form factor, but it’s still annoying that it necessitates the purchase of a USB hub when it’s already going to be quite pricey.

80% Huawei MateBook X Pro (2022) review: true blue ultraportable
Source: Stuff TV English
We already knew the latest Matebook X Pro was a slick-looking ultraportable with a stellar screen – and that hasn’t changed now Huawei has upgraded the internals. It’s still a great work machine, thanks to the tactile keyboard, responsive touchpad and 3:2 aspect ratio. The high resolution, HDR support and decent set of speakers mean it can entertain as well. The extra CPU cores have given performance a welcome boost, meaning it can crunch numbers on par with many chunkier machines. A few new colour options help the updated machine stand out from its more businesslike rivals, and by the time you configure an M2-powered MacBook Air with same RAM and storage the price gap is pretty minimal. Battery life remains a sore spot, though, and creative types will still need to look elsewhere for a machine with a dedicated GPU. But if you’re simply after a premium work machine with a splash of style, it absolutely gets the job done.
