Huawei MatePad Pro 13.2 review - Creative tablet with high-precision stylus

Model dimensions. The MatePad Pro 13.2 not only offers a large display, but also a stylus with NearLink technology for the first time, which promises a significant improvement in terms of precision and latency. But entertainment is not neglected either with HDR support and six speakers. An all-rounder?

The Huawei MatePad Pro 13.2 can best be described as the successor to the MatePad Pro 11 or the MatePad Pro 12.6 but, as the name suggests, the display has grown and is therefore actually in a different category.

With its very slim design and many premium specifications, the Huawei tablet is immediately recognizable as a high-end product, and any doubts are dispelled when looking at the price, as the MatePad Pro 13.2 starts at 999 euros (12/256 GB, black) - only the tablet. The larger storage version with 512 GB (green) also offers a keyboard cover: 1,199 euros.

The big unknown is the SoC. Huawei reveals almost nothing about the Kirin 9000W, which is why we also took a closer look at it.

Case - Super-slim tablet from Huawei

Despite its large display, the Huawei MatePad Pro 13.2 is only 5.5 millimeters thick and surprisingly light. The display-to-surface ratio of 92 percent also certifies that the tablet has very narrow edges.

We like the build quality of the MatePad very much. The gaps are both close-fitting and even, and the case remains unyielding when twisted and does not even creak a little.

Huawei tablet does not have any IP certification and is available in black and green.

Features - MatePad Pro 13.2 offers USB 3.2

The Huawei MatePad Pro 13.2 uses a USB 3.2 port (Gen. 1), which achieved a speedy 327.55 MB/s in the copy test with connected M2.SSD (Samsung 980 Pro) and supports wired image output. With the latter, only the screen is mirrored, the tablet does not have a desktop mode. Connected storage drives with the FAT32, NTFS, and exFAT file systems are supported.

Memory expansion is not possible. However, Bluetooth 5.2 and NearLink are on board.

Software - Huawei tablet with HarmonyOS 4.0

With HarmonyOS 4.0, the MatePad Pro 13.2 relies on Huawei's own operating system, which is based on Android 12. Google services or even the Play Store are not pre-installed here. Huawei does not provide precise information on the duration or schedule of updates. However, experience has shown that the manufacturer releases these over several years for its premium products. For example, a Mate 30 Pro from 2019 is running the latest HarmonyOS 4.0. At the time of testing, the tablet's security patches were up to date as of December 1, 2023 and therefore still quite up to date.

If you can't find your known apps in the AppGallery, you can install them as APKs via the Petal search from corresponding online sites. This now works quite well, but there is no comprehensive check of the files. Another option is the GBox, which uses a sandbox to trick Google into thinking it is a Xiaomi smartphone and allows full access to the Play Store. Most apps also work quite reliably, but we had the problem, for example, that tracking apps were sometimes unable to determine the location. In addition, the apps start noticeably slower in the GBox and the solution is not harmless in terms of data protection.

AppGallery

Communication and GNSS - Neither 6 GHz WLAN nor a cellular option

The Huawei MatePad Pro 13.2 supports Wi-Fi 6, but without the fast 6 GHz band. In combination with our reference router Asus ROG Rapture GT-AXE11000, it still achieves high and stable data rates when sending data, but reception is surprisingly slow. In everyday use, however, this will only be noticeable with large amounts of data.

Like the Mate 60 Pro, the MatePad Pro 13.2 also uses NearLink wireless technology, which works in a similar way to UWB. This is a short-range wireless technology, but it is safer, more economical, and faster than Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. The transmission latency is just 20 microseconds, with six times the data rate of a conventional Bluetooth connection. NearLink is the basis for the optional M-Pencil.

Inside the buildings, a Satfix with the MatePad Pro 13.2 takes a moment longer, and the positioning sometimes jumps away from the actual location. Outdoors, however, the Huawei tablet provides a stable signal.

On a bike tour, we compare the MatePad with the Garmin Venu 2, and although the tablet's positioning is not quite as accurate, it is still good for navigation tasks.

Cameras - Three lenses for the MatePad Pro 13.2

Selfie with the Huawei MatePad Pro 13.2
Selfie with the Huawei MatePad Pro 13.2

Although the front camera delivers a fairly high resolution, the images are somewhat lacking in detail and only capable of Full HD video with 30 FPS. It is supported by ToF optics, which enables very good person tracking and can also detect whether someone is looking at the tablet and wake it up if necessary. Selfies are certainly not the main focus here, but rather video telephony.

There are two lenses on the back. In addition to the main camera, Huawei has provided an additional ultra-wide-angle lens. Both lenses offer rather mediocre quality. In good light, they produce photos that are suitable for documentation, but nothing more.

Videos are recorded in Ultra HD (30 FPS) at best. If Full HD is enough for you, you can also use 60 FPS and the ultra-wide angle.

The scope of delivery of the Huawei MatePad Pro 13.2 is nominally limited to a modular 88-watt power supply unit, which has both a USB-A and a USB-C port, as well as a USB cable (Type-A to Type-C). If you opt for the larger storage version, you will also receive a matching keyboard. The M-Pencil (Gen 3, 99 euros) must be purchased as an option but is included free of charge when purchased in the Huawei Store (until 29.02.2024) at launch.

Huawei also offers an optional Bluetooth mouse, a keyboard (199 euros), and a small docking station.

Huawei provides the MatePad Pro 13.2 with a 24-month warranty in Germany. As part of the market launch promotion, the warranty is extended to 3 years free of charge.

Input devices & operation - M-Pencil with NearLink makes the difference

The capacitive touchscreen of the Huawei MatePad Pro 13.2 works very reliably and has pleasant gliding properties. However, it only unfolds its full potential together with the M-Pencil. This is the first to use NearLink and is therefore characterized by noticeably lower latencies than those of Apple or Samsung. In addition, with over 10,000 pressure levels, it can differentiate more than twice as many as the competition. This makes the MatePad Pro technically the first choice for creative professionals.

The pen can be locked magnetically on the upper long edge. It sticks there very securely and is also charged there.

Finding the right software is more of a problem. Although Huawei offers a powerful tool with its own note-taking app, which also supports many additional features for the pen, it lacks a powerful image editing app. This is actually available for the Chinese market. However, it remains to be seen whether this will also be made available to the rest of the world.

For biometric security, Huawei relies exclusively on facial recognition via the front camera, which can save up to five facial profiles. However, why Huawei does not use the ToF for secure 3D recognition remains a mystery to us.

Unfortunately, the Huawei tablet does not have a vibration motor. However, keystrokes can also be better emphasized with sounds. The optional keyboard leaves a really good impression: The 1.7 x 1.7 millimeter keys have a fairly soft stroke and quiet clatter, only the space and enter keys are slightly louder. The generous touchpad measures 120 x 72 millimeters, offers very good gliding properties, and also supports gestures. The highlight: The Bluetooth keyboard can also be used when it is not directly docked to the tablet.

Microsoft SwiftKey and Celia are pre-installed as on-screen keyboards. The former offers a wider range of functions but is not adapted to the screen of the MatePad Pro 13.2.

One highlight of the Huawei MatePad Pro 13.2 is certainly the 13.2-inch OLED display. This works with a refresh rate of up to 144 Hz. The brightness should climb to up to 1,000 cd/m² with HDR content.

With an all-white display and an active ambient light sensor, the average brightness climbs to 803 cd/m². However, the APL18 (850 cd/m²) and HDR measurement (874 cd/m²) hardly achieve higher values, meaning that the specified peak brightness is missed by a considerable margin. If you adjust the display manually, up to 636 cd/m² is available.

Huawei uses PWM dimming with 1,440 Hz to make the panel as easy on the eyes as possible. This means that the display can nominally be described as flicker-free (> 1,400 Hz) and should not cause any discomfort even for sensitive people.

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 1428 Hz

The display backlight flickers at 1428 Hz (worst case, e.g., utilizing PWM) .

The frequency of 1428 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17900 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The Huawei MatePad Pro 13.2 makes a good impression outdoors. This is not only due to the high brightness but also to the magnetron-nano-optics coating, which reduces reflections.

The viewing angle stability is really good, even at flat viewing angles. The reduction in brightness is minimal, but a very subtle yellow haze is visible.

Performance - Huawei tablet with Kirin 9000W

The Huawei MatePad Pro 13.2 is powered by a HiSilicon Kirin 9000W, which has access to 12 GB of RAM. Unfortunately, Huawei does not reveal many details about the SoC. The CPU is made up of twelve cores: The power-saving cluster has four ARM Cortex-A510 cores, each operating at up to 1,530 MHz, while six other units use unspecified cores from HiSilicon (0x0D42) and clock at up to 2,150 MHz. The third cluster contains two HiSilicon cores (0x0D02), each with a maximum frequency of 2,487 MHz.

The single-core performance is correspondingly mixed if high-end demands are made, as this is at the level of an Apple A12. The multi-core performance looks better due to the numerous cores and the Kirin ranks above a Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 or a Dimensity 8020. This is good mid-range performance, but not what you would expect from a tablet with a price of around €1,000.

In the system benchmarks, the MatePad Pro 13.2 is also clearly inferior to the iPad Pro or the Tab S9 Ultra. However, HarmonyOS works very smoothly in everyday use, even when multitasking.

There are no details about the memory either, but the analysis reveals that it must be a very fast UFS 3.1 memory.

The graphics unit is a Maleoon 910, which was probably already used in a similar form in the Kirin 9000S. Here too, Huawei only lands in the mid-range and, depending on the benchmark, is at the level of an Adreno 640, 650, or a Mali-G77 MP9.

This is also noticeable when playing. Although the Ultra setting is available in PUBG Mobile, frame drops are clearly visible in HD, although the game does not stutter at all. Asphalt 9 crashed immediately after starting, which is why we reverted to the older Asphalt 8.
