    Viewing the pure color effect of the notebook from an angle of about 45 degrees, it can be seen that aside from the slightly reduced visible brightness on the screen, the overall color display remains accurate without any obvious drift. The HDR display effect is also reasonably good.

    In other words, the display quality of the Huawei MateBook X Pro 2021 screen is designed to meet the needs of a variety of users for entertainment and general work.
