Huawei Matebook X Pro After 5 Months: Still one of the Best!

by birtanpublished on August 24, 2020

Today I want to share with you my long-term experience with the huawei mate book X Pro and I feel like this was a really slept on laptop it came out in the summer of 2018 and even laptops that came way later in the year I just feel like couldn't match the super screen a

Body ratio the plenty of power for the form factor and it was also priced competitively for both the entry-level and the high-end model I wish that more people could actually try this laptop because if he tried it you would

Absolutely love it and the last time that I was at an event with my good friend Joshua for Gaara we talked about the best tech in the best laptops of 2018 and the huawei mate book X Pro came up plenty of times so we both got an

Amazing opportunity to team up together and also to partner with Huawei to give you a chance to win a mate for your mate so there's gonna be two of these up for grabs and one on my channel and one on his

Channel and we both use it for different purposes so make sure you go out and check out his perspective but you definitely need to watch mine first stick around it to the end to find out how to win after using this for an

Extended period of time I really appreciate just how balanced this laptop is first of all the hardware is incredible it's really well built its compact it's portable the all-metal bill feels really premium

I love that there is a fingerprint scanner and power button combo all in one and when you start it up it just reads your fingerprint at that same time so when it boots up you are right in you really don't appreciate the small things

Until you just use it again and again and again you actually get a USB a port on the right hand side which makes things a little bit easier and on the left you get two USB C ports it also charges through USB and one of the ports

Is a Thunderbolt 3 port so that opens up the possibility with EGP use so if you want to play some more graphically intensive games or you want to crunch out a huge 4k edit and not render for days you can definitely do that with

This couple with that 8th generation Core i7 quad core processor you can definitely get pro work done and that's how Josh is using his right now that's his workflow he's using it for his everyday edits so make sure you check

Out his video on that if you're interested in this type of form factor and that you could actually extend the power if you want to when you need it definitely check out his video my favorite really is this

Display I mean look at the bezels or lack thereof really the screen of body ratio is crazy at 91% it's a really stunning view and this thirteen point nine inch three thousand by two thousand display is nice and bright at 450 nits

It covers 100% of srgb and I even like that three-to-two aspect ratio and even though I don't use the touch screen that much I think it's really handy to have sometimes so it's nice that it's there and this hinge is nice and sturdy too

Which really makes the touch experience nice the quad speakers are also really nice there's two on the sides and there's also two here at the bottom and it supports Dolby Atmos I'm not sure how effective Atmos is in this type of

Scenario but let me tell you the speakers sound fantastic usually the laptop is not my first choice when it comes to watching content but with a screen like this and speakers that have nice range and clarity

It makes me watch a lot more videos on this so the overall multimedia experience with the mate book X Pro is really nice I use this laptop mostly for productivity I write a lot of scripts on this I do a lot of research on this and

I do a lot of typing so I'm happy to say that this laptop has a nice backlit keyboard on it typing is easy there's plenty of key travel I do like the feedback from it but if I had one tiny complaint about it is that the keys are

A little bit on the mushy side but overall it's a nice typing experience there is one odd thing about the keyboard though on the function key row you'll find a little hidden pop-up camera here in the middle and that is

Awesome for security and privacy and I really like the super-secret location but I do have to say that the 1 megapixel webcam isn't the clearest and the view of the camera is kind of unflattering but it will work when you

Need to in a clutch situation I'm also happy to say that the trackpad has been fantastic it's a precision trackpad it's really responsive so that's my biggest complaint about most Windows laptops is the inconsistency between the trackpads

But this one's been fantastic so far precision for the win when it comes to specs you're gonna want to configure how you want it I have the higher-end 8 generation Core i7 model here with 16 gigabytes of ddr3 RAM and a 512 gigabyte

SSD and the two gigabyte nvidia MX 150 GPU there is an entry model with the core i5 eight gigabytes of ram 256 gigabyte SSD and the integrated intel 620 graphics and that should work for a lot of people

But if you have the money I would definitely bump up to the higher-end model there is a fifty seven point four watt hour battery and has done extremely well in my usage since I'm not doing a lot of processor

Intensive or graphically intensive work I'm easily getting eight to nine hours everyday from this so no problem when it comes to battery life so I feel like the culmination of everything from the build quality the keyboard the display the

Speakers all that together I feel like the MacBook X probe nails it when it comes to the Ultrabook form factor when it comes to power I feel like there'll be plenty of it for people who are looking for this type of form factor I'm

Glad that Huawei was one of the first to go with the MX 150 for the GPU while it's not the most powerful dedicated GPU you can play some light to moderate titles when it comes to gaming and if you're editing easier and less intensive

4k video or if you're strictly editing 1080p then you're gonna be just fine what this is gonna be buttery smooth and if you're a photographer and use Lightroom and you use Photoshop a lot to edit your photos then you're gonna

Definitely going to be fine with this as well because it's plenty powerful for that so if you're doing a lot of processor intensive work or a lot of GPU intensive stuff like playing games for extended period of time or rendering

Videos they will get a little warm here on the top but overall experience on this laptop as a whole has been great I've used plenty of laptops in 2018 but this is one of the machines that stood out to

Me is so balanced and ahead of its time like I said earlier it came out in the summer of 2018 and I feel like it's still a fantastic Buy in 2019 specs wise is plenty powerful the display is great with super thin bezels it's even a

Touchscreen the keyboard and trackpad are nice the speakers complement the user experience there's a clean version of Windows here with no bloatware fat storage Thunderbolt 3 great build quality and a great price too so when

You compare this to the competition the MacBook X Pro still looks for good I'll leave a link down below for you to check current pricing because now that it's been out for a while you could probably get it at a discount and that's

Even more of a win and you should definitely pick it up for a discount because this is still a great laptop I'm pretty sure this is not the first time that you've heard good things about this laptop there's plenty of other videos
