 Huawei offers consumers useful and richly functional options with its laptops as well as its smartphones. Moreover, these products are remarkable not only with their features but also with their designs. As of March 20 offered for sale in our reign matebook Huawei D15 is such a product. Huawei MateBook D 15, which is an entry-mid segment product with its price of 600USD and its features, seems to be a suitable option for those who want a stylish looking laptop. In this article, we will give you a quick review regarding the MateBook D 15.

Huawei MateBook D 15: Display, Price, and Specifications in 2020.


 Design & Display.


 Huawei MateBook D 15 comes with a body generally made of aluminum. We see a slightly reflective Huawei logo on the cover. It creates a valuable feeling with its soft and smooth surface. He seems a bit enthusiastic about fingerprinting. Its weight of 1.53 kilograms counts within reasonable limits for a 15-inch laptop. We can say the same for the thickness of 16.9 millimeters. We see that the laptop, which has a surface area of ​​358mm x 230mm, occupies a slightly lower area compared to other products with the same screen size. Huawei's thin screen design also has an effect on this.

The MateBook D 15's 15.6-inch screen is surrounded by a screen frame that we can describe as thin. The lower bezel is a bit wider and the Huawei logo is embedded here. The other edges are the same thickness and much thinner than the bottom. The display frame is made of plastic. We can say the same for the hinge. The screen is not fully folded back. However, when you open the cover completely, we can say that the angle with the keyboard is very close to 180 degrees.

In Huawei's laptops, we see the webcam built into the keyboard. This is also the case with the MateBook D 15. In the middle of the function key row, you will see a button with a camera icon. When you press this button, the webcam will open. We know from Huawei computers we have experienced before that the webcam does not offer a very practical solution in terms of where it is placed. When you have a video call or want to shoot a video using the camera, it looks like the other person or the viewer is looking at you from below. The good news is that those who are concerned about privacy do not have to stick tape on the camera. After you do not use the camera, you will inevitably turn it off.

 As far as display is concerned, The screen of the Huawei MateBook D 15 is 15.6 inches diagonal and has a Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. As we mentioned above, a high screen-to-body ratio of 87 percent is achieved thanks to the thin screen frame.

The screen surface has a matte finish. This reduces the reflection on the screen in environments where you are working outdoors or under bright light. This contributes to the visibility of the screen whose brightness is not very high. With a maximum brightness level of 220 nits, the visual experience offered by the Huawei MateBook D 15 is not far above average. The viewing angles of the screen with IPS technology are high. As the viewing angle increases, the brightness decreases, although you can see what is happening on the screen.

In terms of color support, the screen of the MateBook D 15 is not much higher than the average. It's worth noting that the screen looks a bit dull overall. The colors look slightly pale. This will prevent photo or video editing work on the Huawei MateBook D 15 from being ideal.

Despite this, the MateBook D 15's Full HD screen offers ample environment for watching movies or videos. At school, on trips or at home, you can watch the content you want to your satisfaction. Speaking of watching movies or videos, let's also take a look at the audio side of the Huawei MateBook D 15.

One of the things we like about the laptop is that despite its large surface area, the keyboard does not have a numeric keypad. In this case, the letters we use frequently are completely centered and it becomes possible to write more comfortably. Of course, the lack of a numeric keypad will be a downside for those considering playing games on this laptop.

The MateBook D 15's full-size keyboard has large keys and a sufficient range of keys. Writing is very comfortable and effortless. The keyboard keys are made of plastic and the surface is slightly rough. While the keys may look ordinary, they aren't too playful. So it is possible to write properly. The lack of backlighting of the keyboard will complicate your work in dark or dim environments. You can see that various shortcuts are also assigned to the function keys at the top. By turning off the Fn key, you can make settings such as screen brightness, volume, Wi-Fi easier.

We see the trackpad right in front of the keyboard. It has a large enough trackpad and its surface is soft. Its responsiveness is also good. We can easily perform our work without the need for any mouse. It also supports multi-touch gestures, which is an advantage when navigating the Windows 10 user interface.

 Operating System and Process.


 The Huawei MateBook D 15, which comes for review and has the main technical features such as AMD Ryzen 5 3500U CPU, AMD Radeon Vega GPU, 8 GB DDR4 2400MHz RAM and 256 GB PCIe SSD.

This hardware package is more than enough for daily work. Surfing the Internet, watching movies or videos on Netflix or YouTube; MateBook D 15 provides sufficient performance for tasks such as preparing projects or presentations in office applications such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint. In this respect, we can say that the laptop is sufficient for employees and students who do not need a very powerful computer. It will meet certain needs in subjects such as photo editing and video production. However, it should not be expected that this package will be sufficient for very high-level jobs. It is useful not to keep the expectations too high for the game, but it can provide a smooth experience for most games, albeit low quality.

Huawei's laptop also shows a good graphic when it comes to warming. A large ventilation grille at the bottom helps to expel hot air. It would not be wrong to say that we hardly hear the fan noise while using the computer. In the benchmark tests, the body temperature remains within reasonable limits and does not reach uncomfortable levels. When we look at the benchmark tests, we see that the MateBook D 15 shows the expected results.

 According to the operating system, Huawei MateBook D 15 comes with Windows 10 Home installed. There are no shortcomings in terms of applications and services compared to another laptop. You can download the applications and games you want from the Microsoft Store, or you can easily use classic Windows applications.

The good news is, Huawei hasn't overrated when it comes to apps that come preinstalled. We see that the installed applications are very limited. This is also good news. There is the PC Manager application that we have seen on Huawei's previous computers. Through this application, you can diagnose on your computer and easily perform driver updates.

If you have a Huawei branded Android phone, you can work with the MateBook 15 D without interruption. With the help of Huawei Share, you can easily transfer photos, videos or documents by simply touching your phone in the area next to the MateBook 15 D's trackpad. In addition, you can see the phone's screen on the laptop, move files between them by dragging and dropping, and continue working on your laptop while messaging your friends on your phone using the same keyboard and mouse.

With the Mate 30 Pro we have, this feature called "Multi-screen Collaboration" is quickly ready for use. After activating the Huawei Share option from the quick settings menu of the phone, it is enough to touch the area of ​​the computer that we said. Connection is established quickly and the Mate 30 Pro's user interface opens in the MateBook D 15 in a window. From this point on, it is possible to navigate the Android phone's interface and use its camera with the mouse. You can perform any work you do by taking your phone in your hand and touching its screen. Moving photos, videos, and other documents between both devices by dragging and dropping also works very quickly.

On Huawei's laptops, we see that the disk is divided into two partitions, one partition is Windows loaded, and the other is empty for files. Since programs and other content are also installed in the "C" directory by default, 80 GB of space is likely to fill up very quickly. If you buy this laptop, we recommend that you initially edit the volumes of the partitions.

 Security and Ports.


For security, A fingerprint reader is used as a biometric authentication unit in MateBook D 15. Just to the right of the keyboard is a button that looks stylish. This power button also houses the fingerprint reader. You can add your fingerprints either during setup or later. Thanks to this unit that works quickly, you can pass the locked screen quickly.

In terms of ports, Huawei's laptop will meet the needs. There are three USB-A ports in total. Two of them on the right side have USB 2.0 support, while the one on the left side has USB 3.0 support. It also has a USB-C port. You use this both for connecting USB-C devices and for charging. It's nice that Huawei doesn't use a dedicated power dock. There is also an HDMI port on the left. In this way, you can connect to external screens or TV more conveniently.

Sound System.


There are two speakers placed at the bottom, to the sides. In terms of their location, they gain a little more power by taking advantage of the reflection made from the surface where the computer is placed. The sound output might have been higher in our opinion, but we can say that it will be satisfactory for most users. The stereo sound effect is good, bass and treble are well balanced. The result is a smooth sound experience.

 Battery and charging.


  On the battery side, we see that this laptop comes with a 42 watt-hour capacity battery. When we use the screen brightness at 50 percent and power mode on, we found that 10 percent power was consumed in about 40 minutes. During this time, about 10-15 windows were open in Chrome and we were busy reading and surfing the web. When the laptop is in full sleep mode, power consumption is very low. We found that the laptop, which was in standby for about 14 hours, consumed only 2 percent of power.

As a result, we can say that this laptop will offer 5-6 hours of battery life for people with average needs and intensity of use. You can finish 2 or 3 full-length films on long air travel. Or when you need to work while out and use it periodically, you will be able to manage from morning to night on a single charge. However, if you forget the charge of the computer you brought to the office, you will not be able to work from morning to night on a single charge.

Fortunately, at this point, charging via the USB-C port comes to help. You can even charge the MateBook D 15 using your smartphone's charging adapter. Considering that USB-C tip charging adapters are becoming more common, we can see this as an advantage. On the other hand, the 65W power adapter included in the box also offers fast charging. It promises 54 percent occupancy in half an hour, and our practical experience and tests show that this claim is not wrong. In an hour and a half, the battery is fully charged.

 Conclusion.


 The Huawei MateBook D 15 has good material quality and a stylish design. It looks nice with its aluminum body and silver color. Its plastic keyboard and trackpad make it feel a little lower than high-end computers. We can make the same comment for the Full HD screen. However, we should say that this laptop, with its price of 600USD targets the people who think their budget and students.
Huawei MateBook D 15 easily performs the tasks that a normal user would do with a laptop. 

Although the screen brightness is averaged, it is sufficient for a good multimedia experience, and it will allow you to do things without a headache. Its keyboard and trackpad are easily used. The fingerprint reader is also fast. Do not have high expectations from the package starring AMD Ryzen 5. However, it offers the performance sought after on a computer at this price level.

If you have a Huawei phone, the Huawei MateBook D 15 becomes even more useful. While functions such as screen recording and transferring content on EMUI 9.1 and higher phones are easily done with the PC Manager, it becomes possible to view and manage the phone on the computer screen with EMUI 10 installed phones. At the same time, file transfer becomes easy enough to be down to drag-and-drop.

Huawei MateBook D 15 is a laptop with a high price-performance ratio. We can say that it is a suitable option that we can recommend especially for SME employees and students. Huawei's stronger after-sales support can also be considered among the advantages of this product. What do you think? Do you recommend this laptop? Share your knowledge with us.
