Huawei MateBook 14s review | TechRadar

Two-minute review

The Huawei MateBook 14s might not have a name that suggests glamour (at least to the Western market), but like other devices in the Mate range, there are some incredible features, and a decent amount of luxury, packed into this laptop. As an alternative to other portable workstations like the M1-powered MacBook Air, 13-inch M1 MacBook Pro and the Dell XPX 15, the Chinese tech giant has introduced a compelling alternative, especially if you live in a region that supports the wider ecosystem of Huawei products.

This is sadly the biggest issue with the MateBook 14s though, as countries like the US have placed restrictions on Huawei products that mean many of its benefits are lost. Regional availability not just for the laptop, but complementing hardware such as Huawei phones and tablets drag down the product that performs extremely well as part of its own ecosystem, and in countries like the UK where Huawei products are available, but without access to essential features like the Google App store, the package feels much less attractive.
