About the design I must say that The Huawei MateBook D16 is a 16” good-looking device that appears to target the mid-range to high-end laptops market.
Its design is more practical and focus more on essential requirements , the build in quality is remarkable and impressive, and the hardware components are dynamic and powerful.
The design of the HUAWEI MateBook D16 comes with a sleek, stylish design. The machine is made of aluminum metal material. It helps to get a premium touch, luxurious, strong, durable, yet it weighs only. 1.7 kg only plus, it’s only 18.4 millimeters thin. The screen is also TUV Rheinland certified for reducing harmful blue light. and reduce screen flickering
The keyboard is equipped with a Full-Sized design with a height of 1.5 mm, with a black Soft-Landing design, contrasting with the machine, with a white backlit, with spacing between the keys, not very close to each other.
The power button is in the upper right corner. It acts as a fingerprint scanner at the same time, making it easy to run and fairly fast. Speaker grilles frame the keyboard on both sides. These are excellent speakers – they get very loud and retain a good amount of bass.
The palm rests on either side of the touchpad are large enough to accommodate your hands while typing.
Huawei MateBook 16 is sleek and slim enough to carry it around in your messenger bag or backpack without too much trouble. I think it’s a solid choice for anyone who is currently hybrid working and needs a big screen.
At the bottom of the machine, there is a large air vent for sucking air into the heat. Then it will release the hot air out of the hinge, which Matebook 16 this machine has 2 fans and also has rubber feet that help lift the device from the floor for better ventilation.
The Huawei MateBook D 16 has enough ports and suitable for all practical approach.
It comes with 2 USB –C connection points, both support charging and data transfer.
One of it also support as Display port for hooking up to an external monitor.
Beside there are additional USB – Type A ports. One support USB 3.2( Gen1) and another support USB 2.0
Also an HDMI 2.0 port and 3.5mm Port for microphone input and Headphone output.
Finally the most promising and prominent aspect in Huawei MateBook 16D is the finger print sensor.
One interesting aspect like to mention is the AI Search Key which support hybrid search helps in making Office tasks more efficient.
About Display what we find is that with 16” IPS display, 1200:1 contrast, 16:10 aspect ratio and 100% SRGB color gamut make the overall of sharpness and color accuracy at the most. But we have to mention that only 60Hz refresh rate, No HDR and also no brightness sensor.
As Huawei claims a 100% SRGB Color gamut and a 300nit peak brightness with 90% screen to body ratio. It has develop a superb machine.
On top of the display, a 1080P for all e-meetings. The 1080p camera is definitely a step up compared to the 420p or even 720p resolutions most laptops are available in the market.
The display is only 60Hz, we would’ve loved to have seen a 90Hz panel as on some of Huawei’s other laptops have.
Despite the low brightness, the display is very contrast, distinctive, sharp and peculiar and finally the colors are nicely deep and saturated.
In terms of viewing angle, one is able to achieve a 178° of viewing angle allowing presentation amongst peers to be done as effortlessly as possible.
Battery Life :
Although Huawei brings all the latest technology on the Matebook D16 but as far as battery life is concern it is beyond expectation . It last for just 6 hours which is considerably far less then the available laptops and matebooks in the market. But I must admit under normal usage ( surfing net and checking email etc) it last longer .
