Huawei has been busy releasing other products aside from their smartphones and the latest one to join the fray is the Huawei MateView GT. This monitor is an ultrawide monitor that is meant for gamers as this one has features that gamers would surely love including RGB lights and also fast refresh rate on the Huawei MateView GT.
First, let’s talk about the design of the Huawei MateView GT, well, the monitor does have an ultra-curved 21:9 display which looks really nice even from afar and at the back of the monitor, we got here a simple but clean design at the back with a halo in the middle and also a Huawei logo at the top of it.
We also got here a sturdy stand at the back that looks perfect whether you’re into gaming or you want to use the monitor as your main monitor for work. The thing that I like about the stand of the monitor is that it’s easy to install and you don’t need complicated tools to install the stand to the monitor of the Huawei MateView GT. Aside from the stand, you can also use VESA mount on the monitor if you’re not a fan of the soundbar.
As for the stand, the height of the monitor is completely adjustable which is a plus for me as I can use it at a higher level if I want to especially when I’m standing and using my PC. It’s pretty adjustable too and since it’s ultrawide, you can also adjust it to the sides if you want to have a better angle for you.
Another unique thing about the Huawei MateView GT is the included soundbar dual speakers that come with 5W speakers. With regards to the quality, well, the SoundBar dual speaker of the Huawei MateView GT still can’t replace my main speaker. It may be loud enough for watching movies on Netflix and on YouTube but the quality of the speaker is not on the level of good external speakers out there in the market but it will definitely do just fine if you just need an external speaker for basic needs.
This is no ordinary soundbar speaker on the Huawei MateView GT because this one also comes with RGB lights and you can choose from different lighting effects – Static, Breathing, Colorful, Single Waves, Ripple Waves, Colorful Flow, Colorful Ripples, and Flowing Waves. This RGB light at the soundbar also lets you control the volume of the soundbar by just sliding your finger into the soundbar. Pretty nifty.
For the ports, the Huawei MateView GT got plenty of that one as we got here 2x HDMI 2.0 ports, 1x DP1.4 port, 3.5mm audio jack, and also a USB-C port other devices that support USB-C output. The monitor can also be powered using its included power brick that is connected to the monitor via USB-C. I love using the USB-C port of this monitor for my smartphones and tablets as I don’t need a dongle anymore and for a gaming notebook, I was happily enjoying the 165Hz refresh rate on USB-C, which is way better than the one on HDMI as it only comes in HDMI 2.0 and not HDMI 2.1.
For the panel, we got here a 34” VA panel with a 21:9 display aspect ratio and also a 165Hz refresh rate. There’s a fast refresh rate on this one however, it only features a 4ms response time which is not ideal for hardcore pro FPS gamers. For the resolution, there’s the 3440×1440 resolution which is perfect for productivity. The panel also supports HDR however, the quality of it isn’t as great as I expected but it’s a nice feature to see on this monitor.
I really enjoyed playing games on the display of the monitor as the colors of this one are great and the 1500R curvature of this monitor feels just right for me especially on a 21:9 aspect ratio. Another thing that I like here is that the joystick control of the monitor. This means that I have fewer buttons to think about and easier to tinker with the settings and the menu of the monitor which is very user-friendly so I really didn’t have any problems with it. Actually, I love how user-friendly the monitor is and it includes a lot of features that can really help me when I’m playing games on the monitor.

Actually, I love how user-friendly the monitor is as it has features like Game Assist in where you can display the crosshair on the monitor which is really helpful in FPS games
In our gaming experience with the monitor, the monitor performed really well in fast-paced games like Valorant and APEX Legends and it will have no problem with those games as I didn’t experience any problems with it. It was smooth and fluid but with Valorant, I can slightly feel the difference between 4ms and 1ms monitors.
The Huawei MateView GT is an excellent monitor and one of the few good monitors at its price range. We got here an ultrawide display which is perfect for watching movies and also for gaming and the 1500R curvature is just perfect for my usage. The high refresh rate is also an interesting feature for gamers.
It also comes with a lot of awesome features including the RGB lights on the speaker which adds to the flair to the monitor but the latency is at 4ms which might not fit well for some FPS gamers and the speaker quality might not be the best and the HDR isn’t the best one that we’ve seen.
Nonetheless, the Huawei MateView GT is still an excellent monitor, especially for its price. The Huawei MateView GT is now available for Php28,999
