Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following***:
The MateBook 13 2020 runs very well in practice. The quad-core processor is powerful enough and the system executes our inputs without noticeable delays thanks to the fast SSD. The panel is very bright at more than 400 nits, but you always have issues with reflections in bright environments. We do not like the partition of the hard drive out of the box.

Pros
  • Full sRGB coverage
  • Very good battery life
  • High-quality case
  • Fast SSD
Cons
  • No SD card reader
  • No Thunderbolt 3

Reviewers from techradar have found the following***:
The Huawei MateBook 13 looks like the usual iterative update to its predecessor both on paper and in practice. The screen still puts out a 1440p picture at 100% of the sRGB color gamut – and its touch digitizer is as snappy as ever. This is a laptop that will tear through general use and will be ready to bat on more difficult tasks, too.

Pros
  • Sleek design
  • Excellent display
  • Excellent battery life
Cons
  • No Thunderbolt 3
