Huawei MateView Review: A perfect 4K monitor for your home office

Hawaii MateView Review

Huawei recently released a monitor, which is the Huawei MateView. It possesses wireless display functionality, native 4K+ resolution, a 28.2-inch 3:2 panel, and an attractive design. Huawei did a good job enhancing technology.

The market is filled with many 28-inch monitors, which makes it quite competitive. But there aren’t many 3:2 options. That’s why Huawei MateView is special. 

Huawei MateView Design

The Huawei MateView has a design that’s quite similar to an all-in-one machine. It has a 3:2 ratio 4K + resolution large screen, which is attractive from the front. The screen has a fragile feel, having a size of 28.2 inches with 3840×2560 pixels resolution. The 3:2 ratio has a higher height than the standard 4K display, which is 3840×2160 pixels. The display area is also significant.

Huawei MateView’s screen-to-body ratio is about 94%. The top left, and right sides measure 6mm, while the bottom frame is slightly wider, measuring 9.3mm.

The frame surface is well-polished, which gives it an entire fine sand texture, unlike the standard snap-on design. Huawei MateView has a magnetic rear case, the magnetic suction type has a simple structure, and it doesn’t take much space.

The display chip from the display, thereby making the back of the screen of Huawei MateView flat. The screen is the thinnest and thickest part of the MateView measures 9.3mm and 13mm, respectively. The exposed screws possess a high degree of integration. This design is similar to a massive flat plate that’s placed on a bracket.

Huawei used a different lifting cable management structure for connecting the display and the bracket. The rotation axis, which acts as the connecting part, is fixed by a device identical to a universal ball. This ingenious design needs a finger for the tilt operation of the display. Also, the MateView possesses a built-in sliding rail that’s above the bracket, which allows lifting operations. 

The base has a Huawei sharing sensing area that supports the one-touch screen projection operation of Huawei mobile phones.

The display sound hole is at the lower part of the bracket, and it has 5920 circular holes in an array. It works as an air inlet, which reduces body temperature. The soundhole comprises two high-power (rated power 5W, maximum power of about 8W), full-range speakers, alongside a 28cc independent, big sound cavity. The weighted loudness of these two speakers reaches 75dB and the standard loudness 78dB.

Huawei MateView’s speaker offers a high-quality hearing experience that’s clear, high-pitched, impressive bass, and a large sound field. Also, it has built-in dual microphones through the sound optimization algorithm. The pickup distance is about 4 meters.

Concerning interfaces, MateView possesses a full-function 1 MiniDP (DP1.2), 1 HDMI (HDMI 2.0), USB-C, 2 USB-A, with a 3.5mm headphone and microphone combo interface. The headphone jack supports international standards (CTIA) and Chinese standards (OMTP), so you don’t have to stress yourself about headphone adaptation. These interfaces are found at the side and the rear of the body bracket.

As Huawei’s first sophisticated display product, MateView possesses 28.2 inches to display with a high resolution of 3840×2560 4K+ level. Having a 3:2 display ratio, MateView possesses about 1.5 million more pixels than the standard 4K resolution displays.

The 3:2 ratio monitors have an advantage regarding productivity, not like some 16:9 and 16:10 monitors. The 3:2 screen can display more in typical office software like the MS Office.

Concerning photography, the ratio of images captured by SLR cameras is 3:2, and the 3:2 screen displays images without black borders.

Besides Huawei, other companies have used the 3:2 screen, but only Huawei presented the 3:2 screen. Presently, few monitors have a 3:2 ratio, making it challenging for most professional office workers to go for a product that suits their needs. The release of Huawei MateView brings more options to the market.

The MateView screen has three types of color modes. The brightness is up to 500 nits, while the screen uses a 10bit color depth with 1.07 billion colors, which is the 1 billion color screen that gathered enormous popularity in the mobile phone part this year.

The screen field-color depth possesses a piece of essential parameter information. Color depth is the number of bits used in storing the color of 1 pixel. Also, it’s referred to as “bit/pixel.” All pixels consist of three colors of red, green, and blue.

The more data bits of the pixel, the more numbers can be used to differentiate colors. For a 10-bit screen, all color points can display 2 to the 10th power color depth, which is 1.07 billion colors, i.e., 64 times that of an 8-bit screen. The one billion-color screen offers a natural transition between colors when displaying colorful images. Also, it removes the color fault phenomenon.

Huawei MateView displays the transition from white to black in a pleasing way. It has a brightness of 500 nits and supports VESA Display HDRTM 400 professional certification. With a large color gamut of 98% DCI-P3, some pictures with an unyielding contrast between light and dark present desirable tension.

Huawei MateView possesses 3840 x 2560p resolution with 1.07 billion colors and 98% DCI-P3 color gamut, covering 100% sRGB, which is appealing. Creators will be excited over the color accuracy level and depth, but admittedly, clarity can be worked on. 500 nits peak brightness is enough to display every inch of detail. Also, the screen has a matte coating which can be seen in bright light.

 It possesses an Eye Comfort mode with TÜV Rheinland Low Blue Light, which will help folks who spend more time on the screen, and Flicker-Free certification, which includes a yellow tinge.

Two 5W speakers are built into the monitor. They can’t be depended on to play music or watch TV but can be used for quick audio or video calls. They are superb. Also, built-in dual microphones are a useful feature you don’t usually see; it makes calls much faster and easier to assemble.

Conclusion 

The Huawei MateView is a wonder to behold, and it has the incredibly sharp image quality and incredible color accuracy in an expensive-looking chassis. If you desire a sophisticated monitor to match your Huawei MateBook or Apple MacBook, or you want a monitor that has a taller 3:2 aspect ratio and 4K-plus resolution. Then the MateView is the best option for you.  Also, only Huawei’s smartphones can be mirrored on the Huawei MateView’s 28.2-inch IPS panel. This is possible with the help of an NFC-powered wireless projection feature. This option is not for you if you want to view several documents, apps and webpages or you want to use the wireless phone mirroring feature with a non-Huawei handset, or for gaming.
