11:06 – Conclusion and final thoughts

The Matebook, from an industrial design standpoint, feels great. Solid construction, excellent build quality, and probably the nicest Windows 10 tablet I’ve tested all year. The 12 inch screen looks great

Performance is great too thanks to a Core M processor vs. a slower Atom or Celeron chip most often found in tablets like this.

The only downside? Battery life. Very short at around 4 hours or so doing basic tasks.

  1. The Huawei Matebook is a really impressive tablet. I got the m5 version for $499 with free keyboard on Black Friday. There are two position for the keyboard stand (the middle of tablet has a 2nd magnet which isn't as secure as the main angle), they show how to align it inside the box. I would estimate battery is 5 or 6 hours of browsing at under 50% brightness. Charging 100% takes around 2 hours. The only real competitor for this tablet is the Samsung Galaxy TabPro S, but it was more expensive and only has a Core m3 processor. Both tablets are thinner than an iPad Pro, but much more powerful.

    My biggest complaint so far is that Huawei's driver update software is very poor. The tell you what drivers are available but it doesn't tell you which drivers are installed. When you select the drivers it downloads zip files that need to be extracted and the setup files need to be searched for. Huawei should automate the update process. The backlit keyboard is okay with a nice sized touchpad, but the right click button is unreliable so I do 2 finger tap instead.
