Huawei MateView: Stylish 4K+ Display Monitor

Huawei is playing more and more seriously in the computer market. The result is two new monitors – Huawei MateView and MateView GT. Today here we have Huawei MateView.

The box includes a power cable with a power supply (133W, USB-C) and the necessary set of cables – HDMI, USB-C, and Display Port.

Huawei MateView was made entirely of aluminum. It looks amazing in combination with bright, silver color and small, shiny inserts and thin frames. This is definitely one of the most beautiful monitors on the market.

The screen is adjustable in every plane. We can rotate it, swing it sideways, raise and lower it. The adjustment is smooth but not too light, thanks to which the monitor stably maintains the set position.

There are speakers and ports in the footer. Those, let’s call them, are fixed on the back – power, HDMI, and Display Port. On the other hand, the more accessory ones found their way to the right side of the pillar.

The last important element is the touch bar to control the functions of the monitor. It is placed under the screen on the lower edge. The strap is rubber. The operation takes place by moving your finger sideways over it, confirming the choices with a touch, and moving backward with a double touch. It is very intuitive. Just like the entire menu, in which we find the most important options without unnecessary combining.

The image displayed by Huawei MateView is of excellent quality. Very bright, contrasting, with nicely saturated and untouched colors.

The monitor is perfect for both office work and multimedia work. Editing photos is pure pleasure.

Huawei MateView offers 100% sRGB coverage, 90% AdobeRGB coverage and 95% P3 coverage. The gamma curve is exemplary. The maximum brightness obtained is 468 nits. The average white point is 7700K for maximum brightness, and this requires calibration. The differences in the matrix backlight are considerable, and for maximum brightness, they reach 18% in the lower-left corner. The delta E indicator is as good as Huawei portrays at 1.53. The monitor is the worst at dealing with shades of green, where the indicator sometimes increases to 4.22.

Summarizing this part, Huawei MateView offers outstanding image quality. High brightness, excellent matrix backlight, color coverage, and color distortions practically invisible to the human eye (delta E below 2) make the monitor suitable for multimedia applications.

Performance

Huawei MateView is not a gaming monitor, which does not mean that it is impossible to play on it. Of course, there are no gaming features here, such as illuminating dark areas of the image or displaying a viewfinder. Still, the outstanding image quality makes it fun to play, especially in less dynamic titles. In-network shooters, especially more demanding users, will surely complain about the 60Hz refresh rate. Nevertheless, Sunday players and people looking for a temporary break from work should not complain too much.

Built-in speakers will not provide us with a cinematic experience. But for small speakers built into the monitor, they do it. They are sufficient for conducting conferences or watching YouTube videos. When it comes to the built-in microphones, they catch the sound very well, and here, Huawei’s declarations and picking up sounds to 4 meters have coverage in reality.

The big and basically the biggest disadvantage of the monitor is.. it’s housing. Paradoxically, it is also one of its greatest advantages. The metal structure is very nice, but it is boiling to hell. In an air-conditioned office, it will be completely imperceptible. But if you use a monitor standing against the wall in an apartment on the top floor of a high block, you cool yourself with whatever you can in the heat of over 30 degrees; then you will strongly feel an additional increase in temperature. And MateView ensures this growth on a particular level. The housing heats up so much that keeping your hand on the monitor post is painful and difficult to endure.

MateView is not only a tool for displaying an image sent via a cable. Although, of course, this is its main function. The monitor can power the laptop connected if we use a USB-C cable to transfer the image. This is why a 133W power supply powers it.

We can also send the image wirelessly from any source. Unfortunately, in a laptop, only 30 Hz image refresh is available, and it is easy to get the impression that the mouse cursor is moving much too slowly.

It works better with smartphones. We can also send the image to the monitor, especially if we have a Huawei smartphone. Then just put it on the monitor stand, and you will immediately get a message on the screen that you are trying to establish a connection.

This feature definitely needs an update because when displaying the smartphone’s desktop, the vertical image has distorted proportions due to the monitor’s unusual aspect ratio. MateView was with me a month before the premiere.

In addition to the smartphone’s desktop, we can also use the desktop mode. What’s more, we can then connect a mouse and keyboard via Bluetooth to the monitor (not only the smartphone).

Conclusion!

Aside from the fact that it’s pretty. Because visually, it makes a huge impression and will fit into any interior. And especially when someone wants a minimalist design and connecting it to, for example, a Mac Mini on a clean desk. MateView is extremely useful. Thanks to the 3: 2 aspect ratio, we basically get an additional 20% of the screen on which we can fit the content. Additionally, we have very high brightness and excellent image quality. Thanks to this, we can successfully use the monitor to process photos or videos.

They also enjoy additional functions. The ability to easily pair with a smartphone or charge a laptop and transfer the image with a single USB-C cable. It is a very convenient solution. The built-in speakers fall out on average, but the microphones make up for it. In fact, the only serious disadvantage of the monitor is that it gets hotter. The construction heats up mercilessly, and it is worth remembering when planning its purchase and setting.
