The declared technical characteristics HUAWEI MateView SE are quite typical of the low-cost modern Full HD IP monitors: diagonal 23.8", a slow response , a relatively modest rate of renewal of 75 Hz and a low level of luminance of 250 cd/m2.

However, the monitor has been promised such unusual opportunities as the high quality of the color transmission settings with the DeltaE <2, broad colour coverage of 90 per cent DCI-P3, easy control with mini-joystics, and simulation mode of "electronic ink." Last year's HUAWEI, the Display 23.8 model, did not have any bonus on the list, with a complete convergence of basic parameters.

From all of this tasting list, only the eBook mode, which of course will not turn the monitor into an E-Ink-based device, is not too impressed. But the picture looks nice. Also note that the HDR mode on the menu is just a simulation of the HDR color video effects that are suitable for video viewing.

The density of pixels is low at about 93 ppi, which is on the verge of a comfortable perception of the image, but still does not pass.

The interface set is very minimal but modern: there is a single DP and HDMI interface.

The monitor is only available in a simple option that supports adjustment only by the angle of inclination. There is also a more advanced version that allows the display to change its height and turn it into a portrait mode, but it is not available.

The shape of the monitor cannot be attributed to the masterpieces of originality, but the model looks quite pleasant because of the small thickness of the body.

The menu is well organized and localized, and the set of settings is good enough, and the only claim is a slight delay in responding to deviations and pressing the joystick.


The measurements that we have made have shown little weakness in the declared contrast parameters .

The minimum luminance of the white field was 40 cd/m2, and the luminance setting, as in the HUAWEI monitors we already know, is non-linear: the step of change is the least at low levels of luminance and increases markedly with the luminance of the screen.

Similar to the models of this manufacturer that we already know and the general nature of the color transmission setting: minimal variations are observed at the maximum level of luminance of the screen, and the color temperature is reduced when it is reduced. However, if on previous models the change in colour temperature from 0 to 100 is about 500 K, HUAWEI MateView SE has only about 200 K.

The producer ' s promises on the level of colour-transmission variations were also fully fulfilled: in mode P3, the average level of DeltaE94 deviations was 1.7-1.8 units, depending on the level of luminance of the screen, and in setting the colour-transmission restriction at the level of sRGB less than 1 unit, the Argyll test in this mode being performed with the difference "from the box".

But the values of HUAWEI MateView SE are not limited to a good factory setting. This monitor allows the user what models of other manufacturers, including those specially positioned to work with color: the ability to correct RGB reinforcements in the color space restriction mode at the sRGB level. It can provide the accuracy of the colour transmission at the full calibration level without calibrating defects such as a deterioration in the quality of the reflection of gradients.

In DCI-P3, the color coverage of the matrix covers 99.7 per cent sRGB, 78.5 per cent Adobe RGB and 88.8 per cent DCI-P3. The total color range is 125.5 per cent sRGB, 86.5 per cent Adobe RGB and 88.9 per cent DCI-P3. This is very close to the manufacturer ' s promises of 90 per cent DCI-P3 coverage with full sRGB coverage.

In the sRGB emulation mode, the color range covers 96.6 per cent and the total color coverage is 97.9 per cent sRGB, which is a good setting.

Note, however, that the quality of the gamma-critic settings in sRGB mode is slightly lower than in the default P3 mode. The average gamma level in both cases is very close to the reference 2.2, but the sRGB mode shows more differences between individual shade curves.

The response rate is fairly typical for non-game IPS monitors with a standard update frequency. When the plumes are turned off after moving objects, and when the maximum level of acceleration is set, the artifacts of the response time compensation scheme are clearly visible. Two intermediate response rates are optimal, the difference between them being almost invisible to the eye or to the photo.

♪ Conclusion

The monitor HUAWEI MateView SE, in our view, is an unconditional best choice among low-cost Full HD IPS monitors. First of all, thanks to a good color show, it is quite good even "from a box", and the possibility of fully adjusting RGB reinforcements in a color-covering mode can be described as unique even in the face of more expensive models.

Otherwise, we are faced with a fairly typical representative of his class, who differs from most of the primary-list neighbours only by a full combination of the best solutions in this price segment.
