Huawei is growing up with the MateBook lineup for a couple of years. Huawei has released many premium-looking high-performance laptops that are competing with the top laptop manufacturing companies.
Today, I have decided to pick the two most popular laptops from Huawei to do a side-by-side comparison between Huawei MateBook D 14 vs. Huawei MateBook 14 to make your buying decision clear.
Let’s do it,
Both of the laptops were released in 2020, but D 14 was released in May and Matebook 14 was released in October.
The Huawei D 14 comes with a 14″ inches IPS display with a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, screen to body ratio is 84%, brightness maximum of 250 nits, contrast 800:1, and the screen aspect ratio is 16:9 with the viewing angle of 178 ° degrees.
On the opposite side, the Huawei Matebook 14 comes with a screen size of 14″ inches IPS multi-touch-sensitive screen display with a resolution of 2160×1440 pixels.
Huawei MateBook 14’s screen to body ratio is 90%, which is slightly higher than D14 for its tiny bezel. The MateBook 14 has a maximum brightness of 300 nits and a contrast ratio of 1500:1 with the same viewing angle as D 14.
The Huawei Matebook D 14 comes with two processor variations, AMD Ryzen 5 3500U and AMD 7 3700U. On the other side, Huawei Matebook 14 also got 2 processor variations, AMD Ryzen™ 5 4600H and AMD Ryzen™ 7 4800H. Comparing these two Matebook, you will find that Huawei Matebook 14 has got a little bit high-performance processor than Matebook D 14.
RAM and Storage:
Huawei installed 8GB DDR4 RAM in both of the Matebook D 14 processor variations. They have given an extra storage capacity for the AMD Ryzen 7 processor owner with 512 GB PCIe SSD, and AMD Ryzen 5 processor owner will get 256 GB of PCIe SSD storage.
But for the Matebook 14 customers, Huawei didn’t do the same thing, AMD Ryzen 5 processor will get 8GB of DDR RAM with 256 GB of PCIe SSD storage, and AMD Ryzen 7 processor owner will have 16GB DDR 4 RAM with 512 GB PCIe SSD storage.
If you love to do tasks like gaming, high-resolution video editing, or graphics works, then Huawei Matebook 14 will be advisable for you because of its AMD Radeon™ high-performance graphics processor. If you do those kinds of things that do not pressurize too much on a graphics processor, then Huawei Matebook D 14 would be adequate for you.
I loved how Huawei hide the 1MP webcam under a false key in the D 14 Matebook’s keyboard. Whereas, Matebook 14’s 720P HD webcam got almost hidden within its tiny bezel.
Comparing to all the features from both of the Matebook, the price is pretty affordable. Huawei D 14 Ryzen 5 laptop comes at £599.99, and Ryzen 7 processor will cost £749.99.
Nevertheless, Huawei Matebook 14 with Ryzen 5 processor comes at £689.99 and, if you take the Ryzen 7 processor, it costs around £949.99.
However, I cannot deny that Huawei’s these two beasts look beautiful for their minimalist design. I love the similar features like a fingerprint power button that allows me to log in so fast and Huawei Share, which can duplicate my Huawei phone’s screen and copy photos, videos, and any kinds of files without any cable.
Most importantly, its 7-9 hours of battery life will make you tension free from going anywhere. From these two, you can choose any of them according to your affordability.
