Reviews for the Huawei MateBook m5-6Y54

84.2% Huawei MateBook m5-6Y54 Convertible Review | Notebookcheck
Light, but not that mobile. The smartphone-behemoth Huawei releases a Windows convertible - and aims high by targeting business customers in the premium segment. Is the small 2-in-1 a threat to the likes of a Surface Pro 4 or the HP Spectre x2 12?
Huawei MateBook review – a sleek tablet, but a mediocre ultrabook
Source: Tab Times English
When it comes to using the MateBook as a laptop, with the attached keyboard, the desktop experience suffers only in offering fewer angles at which you can prop up the display. We’re hoping to do a full Surface Pro 4 comparison and to explore the accompanying docks as well, particularly, we are eager to see if the benefits of USB Type-C and the slim form-factor of the MateDock are an advantage over the big pair of bricks that make up the Surface Dock.

Huawei MateBook review: Great-looking hybrid that can't quite eclipse Microsoft's Surface Pro 4
Source: Mirror English
I'll caveat that by saying you shouldn't be expecting to load up Skyrim or edit 4K video streams on it. But on the other hand it's very portable, capable of handling the majorioty of a user's demands and it looks good too.

Review: Huawei MateBook
Source: Unlocked Newegg English
This product would be good for those who want something fast and reliable in the workplace or for the ultimate true mobile tablet experience. If you were already thinking of upgrading your machinery, then it’s a device that can handle business needs in the air and on the ground. The iPad Pro caveats apply -- for typists and content creators, this isn't a real laptop replacement. But for everyone else, the Huawei is a strong competitor for best in class, especially if you've been itching for a Win 10 tablet with iPad build and style (and minimalist USB-C connectivity). Really, the Huawei MateBook is a near perfect Windows 10 tablet. If this is the kind of product we can expect from Huawei, then I can't wait to see what else they bring to market.

12":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
1.167 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.

In the first quarter of 2016, Huawei had a market share of 8.2% in the smartphone market, making it the third-largest smartphone manufacturer in the world.

In 2014, Huawei created the sub brand Honor and offers certain smartphone series under this name. The name Huawei is usually not listed for these products.
There are a lot of reviews on Huawei phones with slightly above average ratings (as of 2016).
81.4%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
