2. The lightweight form factor
The MateBook D 14 exemplifies the idea of a thin-and-light laptop.
It weighs just 1.38kg and measures just 15.9,mm thick, offering a lightweight and compact form factor that has great portability.
This is the kind of laptop you can easily stow in a backpack or purse without needing to worry about it taking up too much space or weighing down on your shoulders.
3. Useful Huawei features
The MateBook D 14 highlights the multi-device collaboration that’s possible in the Huawei ecosystem.
Using Huawei Share, you can link your phone simply by tapping its NFC detection area on the MateBook D 14’s Huawei Share icon.
Linking your smartphone also allows you to share files, control apps on your phone, and even answer phone calls.
4. MateBook D 14 battery life
With a 56Wh battery and up to 9.5 hours of local 1080p video playback, the Huawei MateBook D 14 has an impressive battery life.
This battery life is useful during the working day while you’re on the go, but also when you’re sitting down to watch series in the evening.
Whether you’re using it on a plane, using it in class, or using it during meetings, the MateBook D 14 offers battery life that you can count on in many scenarios.
5. Security perks
The laptop also has some interesting perks that enhance your security and privacy.
Firstly, it has a built-in fingerprint sensor on the power button for secure access to your device. You can register multiple prints for better accuracy and flexibility, or to allow multiple family members access the device.
Secondly, the MateBook D 14 has a recessed webcam in the keyboard which allows you to fully shutter the camera when you’re not using it — helping avoid any snooping by apps when you think the camera is off.
When you want to use the camera for video calls, you can pop it out again by simply pressing the camera key.
