Positioning

In October 2021, Huawei launched the MateView GT series of gaming monitors for sale in Russia. It includes a model with a diagonal of 27 inches, a radius of curvature of 1500R and a matrix refresh rate of up to 165 Hz.

The manufacturer itself positions the MateView GT as a device for gamers and ordinary users to perform daily work tasks.

The device is distinguished by 2K resolution, DC Flicker-Free, Adaptive Sync and Low Blue Light technologies. Especially for playing first-person shooters, the novelty has a sight function, which significantly increases the accuracy of shooting.

Today the Huawei MateView GT model costs 25,000 rubles.

Fact number 1. This is Huawei

As strange as it may sound, there are fans of certain brands, and various gadgets are created for them. Buying a monitor from a company that is familiar to a wide range of people mainly from smartphones is a rather strange move, because there are a lot of similar solutions from well-known manufacturers on the Russian market. At least those that have proven themselves in “monitor building”.

However, if you carefully google monitors with parameters of 24-27 inches, 2K resolution, 165 Hz, curved matrix, it turns out that almost all of these devices start selling from 26,000 rubles.

This is what makes Huawei interesting, that the brand always finds the opportunity to offer a potential buyer a very good option for adequate money.

Think of the company’s laptops. Their value for money is close to the ideal value, despite dozens of similar devices.

Fact number 2. Build quality, materials

From the point of view of appearance, the MateView GT monitor is nothing interesting, or the original MateView is just a bomb machine in a stylish case. I would love to buy one for work, but I’m already used to a high frequency of 100 Hz, and in MateView it is only 60 Hz. The animation is noticeably sluggish compared to the MateView GT.

So, the new GT 27 is assembled with high quality, there are no complaints about the materials (durable, powerful, it feels like they have been doing it for more than one year). I liked the thin leg, thanks to which the device is stable on a flat surface. The leg takes up little space, so you don’t have to worry about desktop space.

Separately, it is worth noting that Huawei has a 34-inch UltraWide MateView GT. So, he has speakers built into his leg. In addition, there is an RGB touch panel for volume control.

One of the things I didn’t like about the GT Standard Edition was the rounding of the screen. When you have a 27-inch diagonal in front of you, this solution does not look very good, since the aspect ratio of 16: 9 does not allow for the full potential of rounding. You simply do not see the effect of a wide stage, there is no immersion. However, in my opinion, and at 34 inches, the 1500R looks strange. But there are not so many options with a flat display and UltraWide (high resolution, high hertz).

Height adjustment approx. 110 mm. In my case, I had to choose the maximum. Cons: no turns (90 degrees) and rotation. Plus: can be mounted on VESA 100 × 100 mm.

Fact number 3. Display

In this case, we have a relatively typical picture: 27 inches, VA-matrix with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels.

I can’t find fault with the image on the screen: the colors are nice, clean; there are almost no highlights (in the photo, the exposure is specially twisted); the black level is not bad.

Of the features – the refresh rate of the matrix. It can be selected from 60 Hz to 165 Hz. For work, you can set 90 Hz – 120 Hz, and if you are a gamer, then 165 will go for shooters. My PC with AMD Ryzen 7 2700X and Nvidia GeForce 1660 Ti graphics can’t handle complex games above 100 FPS, so there was no way to test 165 Hz.

However, 165Hz is a very high frequency for a device like this, most monitors are limited to 144Hz. The difference in frequencies is small, but when it comes to comparison and competition, every inch, every hertz, every pixel plays a role.

The only thing, after using the MateView GT Standard Edition 27 ”, I came to the conclusion that the aspect ratio of 16: 9 is not suitable for me. The fact is that with a diagonal of 27 inches, if you place two windows on the right and left, there is little information on the screen, it is compressed vertically.

Therefore, I need either 3: 2, like MateView, or 21: 9, like MateView GT 34 “. In the first case, you get two full-length windows, in the second – a lot of data in width.

For gamers, the new 27-inch GT features dark zone control and digital aiming. The second feature was not useful to me, but the first one is convenient: you see more detail in the dark areas. Gamma is often not customizable in games, so dark zone control should help.

No overclocking
With overclocking

From the point of view of color accuracy, the GT SE model is not the best monitor, since DCI-P3 is only 90% here, and the delta E is higher in the region of 3-4. Probably better calibration parameters can be achieved.

The brightness is 390 cd / m2. At home, more than enough. There is support for HDR10. But, as you understand, HDR will not work at full strength due to the low brightness of the matrix backlight for this technology.

Of the obvious advantages, DC Flicker-Free and Low Blue Light are worth noting. There is no PWM throughout the dimming.

Fact number 4. Settings

A small joystick is provided to control the settings at the bottom of the monitor. Exactly the same is in the older model.

The joystick is comfortable, the response is instant, the stroke is small, pressing and deflections are soft.

The settings are very simple and straightforward. It is easy to navigate through them, switch different values. Usually, in monitors, control is done through some place: one button is up, another is down, the third must be confirmed, and so on.

Fact number 5. Hell illumination

I think that many have faced such a problem as backlighting on different devices. In particular, users criticize wireless chargers, TVs, soundbars with bright LEDs that dazzle the eyes at night.

This technology is disabled in the settings (extremely rarely), or the LEDs are banally sealed with tape.

For example, I am currently using an AOC CU34G2X monitor. So it has a small work indicator on the side to the right. As soon as you turn off the PC, the LED starts to glow red faintly. In general, it does not distract from sleep in any way.

Another thing is the MateView GT SE. Here the entire area around the joystick pulsates with bright white light. As a result, the monitor illuminates almost the entire room with its glow. This is annoying. It’s good that the direction of the glow is also down. The 34-inch MateView GT works the same way. How to turn off this LED, Huawei could not answer me.

There is only one way out of the situation – to remove the power cable from the monitor.

Conclusion

I wrote a small note on this monitor, since the device was with me for a short time – as a temporary replacement for my working monitor, which is located in the SC. Therefore, I did not describe in detail some of the parameters.

However, its almost complete analogue, only with a larger diagonal, I disassembled “to the screw” – Huawei MateView GT 34 inches. You will find an overview at the link below.

Cons:

  • boring design for a gaming device
  • has no turns
  • very bright LED in standby mode

In general, the new MateView GT Standard Edition made a good impression: an excellent matrix, high refresh rate, good assembly and materials, a stable compact foot, small weight and dimensions.

The value for money is at a high level here. So, I think it’s worth recommending it for purchase. Let me remind you that the GT Standard Edition is available in black for 25,000 rubles.
