Compare this:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{amsmath}

\begin{document}

\begin{equation*}
  \begin{bmatrix}
    a & b \\
    c & d \\
    e & f \\
    g & h
  \end{bmatrix}
\end{equation*}

\end{document} 

enter image description here

to this:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{unicode-math}

\begin{document}

\begin{equation*}
  \begin{bmatrix}
    a & b \\
    c & d \\
    e & f \\
    g & h
  \end{bmatrix}
\end{equation*}

\end{document} 

enter image description here

The brackets generated with unicode-math don't look as clean. You can clearly see the joints of different bracket components.

Is there a way to avoid this?

    Welcome to TeX.SX! That is a viewer-dependent issue. Your pdf viewer sees one line behind the other and uses some heuristics to draw them a tad wider when the lines overlap. This should not show up in the printed document. – Phelype Oleinik Sep 14 at 22:51
