The Huion Kamvas Pro 13 is the only pen display of this size that boasts QHD. But is it worth it?

Our Verdict

Anyone looking for their first pen display might ask why the Huion Kamvas Pro 13 (2.5K) is slightly more expensive than its comparative Wacom – it's all in the specs. What this Huion tablet lacks in build quality is made up for by the display. It might be a lot to squeeze into a small screen but thankfully it works, and delivers a quality drawing experience.

For

  • Vibrant QHD display
  • Excellent drawing experience
  • Comes with stand

Against

  • Too many wires
  • Not touch screen

This upgrade from the Huion Kamvas Pro 13 (circa 2018) might seem minor, but the 2.5K upgrade from 1080P is noticeable on a 13inch screen. The Huion Kamvas Pro 13 (2.5K) sports a QLED screen – meaning brighter colours all round, and the screen certainly does ‘pop’. It's a refresh that makes this drawing tablet one of the best around.

The Kamvas range by Huion are what are known as ‘pen displays’, meaning you draw directly onto the screen. It’s not a stand alone device like an iPad, it needs to be connected to a PC, Mac or android device in order to work. These connected devices run the apps, the drawing tablet gets you closer to the art.
