Design


Maintaining the familiar MateBook design we're accustomed to, the MateBook D16 features a conventional full-sized keyboard, but with an unconventional trackpad placement that may raise eyebrows. HUAWEI seems to be sticking to the well-established design language of the MateBook series, and while this consistency isn't necessarily a drawback, it would be refreshing to see some occasional deviations from the norm.


The laptop is available exclusively in Mystic Silver, and I find myself yearning for more vibrant color choices in the next iteration. Despite its sleek and professional appearance, I believe a touch of personality is missing. The MateBook 14s, for example, offers a stunning Spruce Green option, and it makes me wonder why such variety wasn't introduced in this model. It however does look classy and give a touch of a professional office laptop.




Screen


Boasting a spacious and vivid display, the laptop stands out with its substantial 16-inch HUAWEI FullView Display screen. The 16:10 aspect ratio provides ample vertical space, accommodating the seamless management of multiple open tabs. The impressive 90% screen-to-body ratio adds a touch of sophistication to the laptop's overall appearance.


The 1920×1200 resolution contributes to a sharp and clear image, surpassing the standard Full HD (1920×1080) display. While it's expected to not have options like OLED or 4K at this price point, the absence of a touchscreen was a notable omission. Unfortunately, It does not have a touchscreen that could greatly benefit productivity-oriented users.


Performance


This laptop boasts impressive hardware, including a 13th Gen Intel® Core™ i9-13900H Processor, 16 GB RAM, and Intel Iris Xe Graphics. Such specifications promise a powerful computing experience, making it well-equipped for a variety of tasks.


In my personal gaming experience, where I utilized it for playing titles like League of Legends and Teamfight Tactics for around 4 hours, the laptop not only maintained its cool demeanor but also delivered a consistently smooth performance. Remarkably, it operated without generating any noticeable noise or succumbing to overheating. This shows the laptop is highly capable of gaming with an efficient cooling system for an enjoyable gaming session.



HUAWEI Metalline Antenna


HUAWEI's new first ever Metaline Antenna technology enhances signal conversion efficiency by 51%, ensuring a stable and seamless network connection in challenging environments. It minimizes false signals and enables connectivity over a distance of up to 270 meters, equivalent to two and a half football fields, even in the presence of walls and obstacles. No wonder I still have a good time buffering my videos when my mom asked me to go to the kitchen while I'm holding my laptop!



Super Device Connectivity


As flexible remote working becomes increasingly prevalent, online conferencing gains heightened significance. The HUAWEI MateBook D 16 facilitates quick local connections with other HUAWEI devices. When HUAWEI earphones, mice, keyboards, speakers, and printers are brought into proximity with the laptop, it automatically detects them, prompting instant and effortless pairing.


Just open it up in the PC file UI and work away on it as though it were saved locally on that device. You can simply drag and drop them across from the smartphone directly to the PC conveniently however you want.



Keyboard and Touchpad


The keys offer a comfortable typing experience with a 1.5mm travel distance and a strong, responsive bounce. While the keyboard produces a hollow 'thunk' with heavy action, it remains reasonably quiet. For light-touch typists, the sound generated is minimal.


Although the touchpad is not as expansive as some, its size is sufficient for easy navigation across the screen, and it proves to be responsive in use.


Battery


Equipped with a substantial 70 Wh large-capacity battery, this laptop ensures extended usage without the need for constant charging. What's even more impressive is that during my gaming sessions while running on battery power, the performance remains consistent and same as when I had the laptop plugged in. There were moments when I even forgot that my laptop wasn't connected to a power source.



Features: WPS AI


Bid farewell to writer's block as HUAWEI's WPS AI effortlessly produces top-notch content through advanced algorithms. Whether it's documents or presentations, transform your creative workflow with just a few clicks or voice commands.


WPS AI provides assistance in content generation, summarization, data analysis, and interactive chat with PDFs. Whether you're a student crafting essays, summarizing texts, or analyzing data, or a professional engaging in discussions, this tool has you covered.


Features: AI Camera and AI Sound


HUAWEI PC Manager also enables users to virtually change the background directly through HUAWEI's own camera. This means you can modify your background on various apps, such as Zoom, Discord, or Google Meet.



With AI Sound technology, users can create a tranquil meeting space anywhere using three noise cancellation modes: Personal Voice Enhancement, Clean Voice, or Sound TrueHD. Tailor your experience based on your surroundings—filter out distracting background noise or ensure crystal-clear melody voices with these enhancements.


Verdict


All in all, personally, I am satisfied with the laptop because the keyboard is nice to use. The startup of this laptop is really fast, allowing me to grab my laptop and use it almost immediately, conveniently, no matter where I am, thanks to its 13th Gen Core processor. The battery power also lasts long, and it does not overheat and does not produce loud sounds.




Pre-Order is now available at HUAWEI Official Website at the price starting from RM2,899.
