A medium-sized, 14 inches-sized screen that you can slip into a computer bag and take with you on the go. With a processor Ryzen 5 4600H, Huawei offers an already outdated technology. A technical choice to reduce the final price of the laptop. A latest-generation processor would have implied a higher price.

The MateBook 14 2020 AMD- the right model for streaming and videos ?
Huawei has not designed this model for strictly multimedia use. If you are very mindful of the quality for multimedia use, we advise you to turn to models other than the MateBook 14 2020 AMD; more high-end products, which on the other hand will be a little more expensive. In short, this is a an unremarkable computer that is not comfortable with strictly multimedia use.
The computer proposed by Huaweiis of average size. This diagonal of 14 inches and a resolution of 2160×1440, is a good compromise. The image quality is bright and colorful, and provides an immersive experience.

Glossy screens are best suited to the indoor environment. Enhanced contrast, sharpness and color brightness are the main benefits you will get from this MateBook 14 2020 AMD. Also note that potentially this screen will be more stressful to the eyes, after 2-3 hours of use in a row.
As far as sound is concerned, the card equipment and speakers have been integrated into this MateBook 14 2020 AMD. To test the audio quality, we turned up the volume with a movie trailer and then with a few songs of different types. Despite good quality, you won’t get the same sound level as with a decent set of external speakers. If necessary, you can later supplement with external elements if you consider the results too insufficient.
Even if the use of this laptop does not require the latest generation of processor, be aware that it Ryzen 5 4600H is now outdated. The consequence will be that it will be less quiet and therefore will consume more electricity. However, as long as you only run one application at a time, it may be enough.
Equipped with the AMD Radeon Vega 6 graphic card, and with 16 Gb of RAM, you will be able to see your movies and even do photo editing if needed. Not good enough for 3D imaging professionals, but good enough for most of us.

Its light weight allows you to take it wherever you want. It is one of the lightest in its class. It’s difficult to get a large screen and a light weight for a laptop. One of the reasons is its 14 inches screen.
Unless perhaps you are used to working in dimly lit areas, you will not be bothered by the absence of a backlit keyboard. Not necessarily useful, except for those in dimly lit places.
Equipped with a glossy slab, it provides very good visual comfort. Its screen displays good image definition and beautiful colours. The disadvantage will come in the event of using it outdoors with a lot of light.
This model does not have a matt or anti-reflective tile. It would have allowed a better use of this model outdoors.
With the installation of the processor Ryzen 5 4600H, the power consumption is rather important.
The result is a poorer autonomy. You will need to expect 2/3 of this estimate for standard use; if you push the processor, the number will drop a little more.
With this laptop and its autonomy of 9 hours, you have in fact one of the best models of the moment.
In order to speed up booting up and calculations, this laptop is equipped with a hard drive type SSD of 500 Gb. The main advantage of this type of hard drive is that it contains fewer moving parts and is faster than standard drives.With SSD technology, however, you benefit from a considerable improvement in the time it takes your notebook to start up and get out of standby mode.For those who will need more space, this MateBook 14 2020 AMD will require the purchase of an external drive, as a permanent home for photos, music and your movie collection.

With these components, Huawei puts at your disposal a laptop whose computing speed has been improved since the last generation. It is a laptop designed for multitasking presented with Windows 10, which will allow to manage at the same time the audio-video applications consuming calculations.
It’s going to be a little harder on this model than on some of the other competitors. Nothing will stop you from modifying photos, videos and music, despite a processor Ryzen 5 4600H that is almost obsolete. You’ll soon discover that the processor lacks power and memory.
This model contains an SSD for the operating system and backup part. The advantage is the speed of starting and execution, but the disadvantage is the shorter lifetime of the disk. Here with 500 Gb you will have enough space to store everything. This computer, even if it is not intended for this use, is still a good product in terms of storage.
The interest of the laptop is to be able to be used in unplugged mode. Here, it’s 9 hours of autonomy available. As a reminder, with such a powerful laptop, it’s hard to do much better Huawei.

MateBook 14 2020 AMD for video games?
It is now possible to use laptops for online or local gaming. Clearly, if your only need is to play games with this MateBook 14 2020 AMD, it may be better to go to other models. The main causes are related to a lack of homogeneity in the choice of the graphics chip, associated with the processor, the screen and the cooling level of the laptop.
As far as image resolution is concerned, it is important that it is high in order to obtain a good rendering. This model is proposed in resolution 2160×1440, that is to say one of the best on the market.
Each year the power of the components increases, so this model is now far behind the others. Tests have shown the limitations of this laptop, including some image degradation and processor temperature rises. In other words it is a good design model, but due to the lower power of the graphics card, it is less efficient for gaming.
Since Huawei has not designed this model for gaming, the display system is not dimensioned for an exemplary reactivity during your gaming sessions. Possibly, the display will be less degraded if you are playing old games, requiring fewer resources.
A space of 500 Gb to save your data; this is in the average of what other brands offer. Not necessary for everyone who plays online, but convenient for those who prefer to play locally.
For online gaming, it MateBook 14 2020 AMD has high quality Wi-Fi. A guarantee of quality that will allow, if your living area is equipped with it, to have a faster and generally more reliable web access.
Because you will have to carry it sometimes, you will appreciate its weight, 1.5 Kg, among the lightest of the moment.
It has an autonomy of 9 hours, more than many others.
In short, an average rendering that makes this MateBook 14 2020 AMD a poor choice for video games, whether local or online. On the other hand, it is very suitable for word processing and multimedia.

One of the big advantages of a laptop is naturally its ability to follow you when you’re on the move. A weight of 1.5 Kg, which makes this computer one of the best in the lightest category.
No numeric keypad comes standard on this model. Unless you only do word processing that does not require its use.
Equipped with a slab without specific treatment, we unfortunately see many reflections on this MateBook 14 2020 AMD. However, if you work all day on text or spreadsheets, a matte screen would be preferable. Concerning light intensity, is is: not so good for eye comfort and work, but powerful in the dark to watch videos.
Under normal conditions of use, i.e. during the day, you will have no difficulty with the absence of a backlit keyboard.
Storage in this model is in the middle of what is available elsewhere. Equipped with a hard drive of 500 Gb, it will give you the possibility to store all your documents locally.
