New Huawei MateBook 14 review: An attempt at a MacBook Air alternative

Ultrabook with 2K resolution and touch display. Huawei has updated the MateBook 14 and is now offering an Intel 12th generation processor in the high-quality midrange ultrabook. Our test shows whether an upgrade is worthwhile and how the model that visually shows a strong resemblance to the MacBook Air fares in our comparison.

Visually, the new Huawei MateBook 14 has hardly changed compared to the predecessor. The manufacturer continues to use a great display with a touchscreen and 2K resolution in the 3:2 format. In the manufacturer's line-up, the ultrabook is positioned between the MateBook X Pro and the MateBook D14. The regular price of 1,100 Euros (~$1,199) is often reduced by up to 270 Euros (~$294), making the model that shows a really high-quality workmanship already available for barely 830 Euros (~$905). The label of the model is slightly confusing. Since the updated MateBook 14 was already introduced into the Chinese market in 2022, Huawei itself calls it the "MateBook 14 2022." But the model became only available in the European market in the fourth quarter of 2023, so that it is known as "MateBook 14 2023" here.

Compared to the predecessor that was available in both an Intel and an AMD version, you have to be content with only the Intel version this year. What is used here is the Intel Core i5-1240P, and our test unit comes with 16 GB of working memory and a 512-GB SSD.

Since nothing has changed in the design and the color is "Space Gray" again, it lends itself to a comparison with the Macbook Air M2. In addition, other worthwhile comparisons include the predecessor model as well as the LG Gram 14Z90Q and Dell XPS 13 Plus 9320, which both also use the i5-1240P processor. As a competitor with an AMD processor, we choose the Lenovo ThinkPad E14 G5, and for a comparison with current Intel processors, we use the Acer Swift Go 14 laptop.

Case: Space Gray and aluminum

Almost nothing has changed in the case compared to the predecessor model. In the current Huawei MateBook 14, the name continues to reveal the intent, and the simple aluminum case reminds us strongly of a MacBook Air M2. The case appears very robust, and the base and display lid resist attempts of twisting. The laptop cannot be opened using a single hand, and the hinges wobble a lot when adjusting the lid angle.

Even though the maximum opening angle is fine at 150 degrees, with the touchscreen, a 180-degree angle allowing the display to lie flat on the surface would have also been very practical. As already in the predecessor, despite the aluminum case the keyboard deck has more give than expected, but we don't really see any real problem here.

Equipment: Same as the predecessor

Pop-up webcam with 720P

There are no changes to the equipment compared to the predecessor. You can find the audio port, a single USB-C 3.2 Gen 1 port, and HDMI 1.4b (4K @30Hz) on the left side. The fact that both USB-A ports on the right side offer the 3.2 Gen 1 standard is also an advantage.

Since the single USB-C port also represents the only charging option, it can only be used efficiently with a dongle. Even though there is an Intel processor inside the MateBook, unfortunately it doesn't support Thunderbolt. 

For a more detailed look at the Wi-Fi chip and the webcam that is integrated into the keyboard, we refer you to our review of the predecessor, since nothing has changed in this regard. The webcam continues to offer a 720P resolution, with a disadvantageous viewing angle due to its low position in the keyboard. While the webcam quality is usable, it quickly hits its limits in bad light conditions.

Maintenance

In order to remove the bottom plate, you have to first remove a total of 10 equally-sized screws. After that, a couple of suction cups are sufficient to lift up the plate. Inside, the M.2 SSD can be replaced, but you cannot do the same with the Wi-Fi module. The dual fans can be removed and cleaned easily, and the battery is also easy to replace.

Input Devices: A large touchpad and solid keyboard

While we are unable to see any external change in the keyboard of the current Huawei MateBook 14 compared to that of the predecessor, the typing experience is better than with last year's model, at least subjectively. Key presses feel crisp and in contrast to the predecessor model, the keyboard doesn't feel spongy. Even though the keyboard of the direct competitor, the MacBook Air M2, is even better, we were quickly able to reach our usual typing speed during the test. As in the predecessor, the keyboard has some slight give while typing, but this wasn't any significant annoyance during the test.

A critique that remains is that function keys such as "Home" and "End" would be desirable. But overall, the keyboard feels precise and comfortable even for longer writing tasks, making it also suitable for those who type a lot. The fingerprint sensor continues to be integrated in the power button that is fortunately not part of the keyboard as is customary with many other models at this point.

A brighter display with worse contrast values

Text display
Some slight clouding (displayed amplified)

Besides the newer processor, the brighter display in our Huawei MateBook 14 is probably the largest change compared to the predecessor model. Even if it is the same panel according to the device information, we were able to measure significantly better values, leading us to assume that Huawei has followed up with some additional calibration here.

The manufacturer continues to use a 14-inch display in the 3:2 format with a high resolution of 2,160 x 1,440 pixels. The display bezels are attractively slim on all four sides, without the addition a notch as in the MacBook Air M2.

In some regards, the measurements of the display turn out significantly better than those of the predecessor. At 411 cd/m², the average brightness turns out a good 44 cd/m² higher, and the brightness distribution is almost 10% better. On the other hand, the really good contrast value of the predecessor could not be reached this time, and the display remains within the advertised values at 1548:1. In the color space coverage, we don't see any noticeable improvements compared to the predecessor, but the values for AdobeRGB, sRGB, and DCI-P3 are 2% worse instead.

Together with the touchscreen functionality, a high pixel density of 185 pixels per inch completes the overall picture. Even though our test unit shows some slight screen bleeding and clouding effects, these are not very noticeable in everyday operation.

The viewing angles are very good as usual for IPS displays but not at the level of OLED panels.

With values between 2 and 2.5, the average DeltaE values of the Grayscale, colors, and saturation are already good before the calibration, although they can be improved significantly with an additional calibration. The average DeltaE values of the Grayscale turn out at a very good 0.4 after the calibration. The measurement values of the saturation can be improved to 0.95 and those of the saturation to 0.85. So an additional calibration of the display is worthwhile, even if the values are already above average for an IPS panel. You can download our color profile for the calibration in the section of the display information.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
23 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 12.5 ms rise
↘ 10.5 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 45 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (21.5 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
27.5 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 13.5 ms rise
↘ 14 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 31 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (33.7 ms).

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 not detected

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 display shows reflections in more direct sunlight.

With its higher average brightness, the current Huawei MateBook 14 is better-suited for outdoor use than the predecessor model. However, in direct sunlight even the current model hits its limits. The brightness is sufficient for some occasional work in the park or the train, but the reflective display has of course some disadvantages compared to the matte versions on the market.

Performance: The Intel Core i5-1240P shows its best side

While the predecessor model was still offered in a total of four processor versions, the current Huawei MateBook 14 arrived in the starting blocks with only a single processor version. However, the very good results in the benchmarks show that this doesn't have to be a disadvantage.

In the test, the processor is only surpassed by the AMD Ryzen 7 7730U in the Lenovo ThinkPad E14 G5 and the significantly newer Intel Core Ultra 7 155H in the Acer Swift Go 14. In almost all the synthetic benchmarks, the MateBook 14 is able to surpass its predecessor, the MacBook Air M2, the Dell XPS 13 Plus 9320, and the LG Gram 14Z90Q with the same processor.

We also don't notice any larger performance drops after longer runtimes, even if the CPU only stabilizes after 4 minutes in our Cinebench loop. As already in the predecessor model, the performance drop in battery operation is only marginal.

Test Conditions

The Huawei PC Manager software allows you to switch between the Performance and Balanced power modes. In Performance mode, the fans are significantly louder, and the TDP can be increased slightly. But a comparison shows that the average performance doesn't increase drastically in this mode. So those who value a lower fan noise volume can also use the Balanced mode without any larger concerns about the performance.

Processor

While the predecessor still used the quad-core Intel Core i7-1165G7 processor, the new Huawei MateBook offers a Core i5-1240P with 12 cores, leading to significantly better results in almost all the benchmarks. The processor starts our Cinebench R15 loop at almost 3.5 GHz, before quickly dropping to about 2.6 GHz. After two minutes, the performance continues to drop to about 2.4 GHz, and after around 4 minutes, the processor levels out at 2.2 GHz with some periodic changes to values between 3.2 and 3.4 GHz. After a peak consumption of more than 60 watts in the beginning of the loop, the average consumption during the benchmark lies at almost 32 watts. At a maximum of 87 °C (189 °F) and average of 72 °C (162 °F), the core temperatures remain significantly below those of the predecessor that reached an average of 83 °C (181 °F).

System Performance

The PCMark 10 results are solid but also show the weaknesses of the 12th Intel chip generation compared to AMD chips. The comparison with the current Intel Ultra 7 155H shows the capabilities of newer processors. But compared to the predecessor, the result turns out 7% better. In the Crossmark test, the current Huawei MateBook 14 turns out almost as good as the Acer Swift Go 14, surpassing the predecessor with a performance difference of 14%.

Our subjective impression of the system performance doesn't reveal any problems, and even opening several Windows is no problem anymore, due to the higher number of cores and increased multithreading performance. The system runs smoothly, and we do not notice any problems during daily operation.

DPC Latencies

With the current Huawei MateBook 14, you have to accept some significant compromises in the DCP latencies.

The predecessor was still able to achieve a very good result here and was even suited for lossless audio and video processing in real-time. Unfortunately, this isn't the case anymore for the new model. Although playing YouTube videos in 4K quality works without any problems, the device is not suited for real-time audio and video processing.

Nothing has changed in the storage solution, and the Samsung PM991 PCIe-3.0 NVMe SSD in the M.2-2280 format with 512 GB is also used here. Therefore, the storage performance is very similar compared to the Huawei MateBook 2021. In all the scenarios, the speed remains below average and could be significantly better considering the current very low prices for powerful storage solutions.

As in last year's model, Huawei splits the storage into the C and D partitions, with the C partition offering barely 70 GB of storage space.
