The Huawei MateBook E is a 12-inch Windows tablet with a keyboard cover and the MatePen – an active stylus. Its main feature is a fan-less, aluminum body with premium features like a fingerprint reader. Thanks to its Intel Core m or Core i processors it is powerful enough to replace a notebook.

Design & build quality
This is easily the highlight of the Huawei Matebook E. Its design is likely the top reason to even consider getting it . Who wouldn’t want to replace a laptop with an ultra-thin tablet?
That is exactly what the Huawei Matebook E is. Get rid of the keyboard dock and you pretty much have a 12-inch tablet. It is amazingly thin at 6.9 mm and measures only 278.8 mm x 194.1 mm, making for an ultimate road warrior in terms of portability.
It looks great as a tablet, too. The bezel is thinner than an iPad’s. In fact, the 12.9-inch iPad Pro is much larger at 305.7 x 220.6 mm, even though the screen is only 0.9 inches bigger. The Huawei tablet is easy to handle and carry around. Not to mention it is a very solid piece of hardware.
Aside from the glass front, the Matebook E has an aluminum alloy body that meets all expectations of modern metal constructions. It is solid and has a hefty feel to it, even though it weighs only 640 grams. Nothing fumbles around, the buttons are sturdy and the device has a premium feel.
All in all, it is a gorgeous device you won’t mind carrying around and showing off, but it doesn’t come alone.
Artists have been using specialized tablets to do their animation and drawing for years. Most of these need to be connected to a PC and many still don’t have a screen, which means you draw in the tablet while looking at the monitor. It’s much more intuitive working directly with the screen, as if it was paper and pencil.
The MatePen optional accessory essentially turns your computer into a drawing tablet. After having some experience drawing with Wacom tablets, I was excited to try the MatePen, and it certainly didn’t disappoint.
Software and performance
The Matebook E runs a complete version of Windows 10 and it works exactly as you would expect. Not much needs to be said about the operating system, though it it is refreshing to have full access to an extensive library of desktop apps on a tablet. Those who have been looking into getting an iPad Pro and an Apple Pencil will really appreciate this, as Apple’s tablet can only access to mobile apps.
Keyboard, dock and other accessories
The Matebook E comes with the works. In the box is a folio keyboard that doubles as a case and a charger. Depending on the market, you might also get the MateDock 2 (extended port support) and/or a USB Type-C to Type A converter. There are additional optional accessories too, like the Huawei MatePen, which we also used.
The Matebook E has got a great screen, at least on paper. The 12-inch 2160×1440 display has 160-degree viewing angles, 1000:1 contrast, 400 nits of brightness and an 85% NTSC color gamut. Now let’s translate that to human words.
Screens have come a long way, even for super thin tablets. The Huawei Matebook E is not falling behind in this department. The screen is bright, colors are vibrant and images are plenty crisp. It is certainly an enjoyable display, with good viewing angles and acceptable visibility in direct sunlight.
Don’t expect miracles out of this tablet’s audio quality. Most mobile devices usually don’t have remarkable audio quality unless they are rocking larger front-facing speakers and the Huawei Matebook E is no different. It’s razor thin and barely sports any bezels, so they had to tuck the speakers to the top edge of the tablet.
This system is powered by Dolby Audio Premium, which optimizes for enhanced volume, virtual surround sound and increased bass response. Even with all those improvements the Huawei Matebook Ewas a little underwhelming.
