Ultimately, the Latitude 15 7520 offers a great feel. The rubberized texture on the Carbon Fiber model is super satisfying on the hands, and the weight of just over 1.5 kilos is great for a 15-incher. It shows decent performance, which is more notable in graphically intensive load, rather than sheer computational power. In addition to that, you get good input devices and an optional touchscreen display. Of course, not everything is fun and games, as you don’t have any kind of memory expansion. You are stuck with what you get the device in the first place, so in our opinion – the 16GB option should be the bare minimum. Other than that, the laptop is fast, secure, lightweight, and feels premium. If none of the few disadvantages doesn’t bother you, then purchasing this device won’t be a bad choice.

The Dell Latitude 15 7520 is the latest to join the Dell family. At a glance, this laptop do seems like a very promising machine with its optional UHD display with HDR capabilities, LTE connectivity, Tiger Lake processors and other features as well. Overall, this model does not look like a typical business device. In addition to being productive, it appears to be absolutely stunning. Interestingly, Dell offers the laptop with either an aluminum or a Carbon Fiber chassis for users to choose from.
Before looking into the design, it is important to notice the differences between the aluminum, and the Carbon fiber chassis of the Latitude 15 7520. Apart from the obvious material variance, the aluminum model sits about 0.49mm lower with a profile of 18.4mm. However, the Carbon chassis is way lighter, stopping the scales at 1.53 kg vs 1.76 kg for the other type. The carbon chassis is quite sturdy but there is definitely some flex when it is twisted, but not too much, whatsoever. As for its lid, it can be opened with a single hand, but somehow, the hinges stiffen at 90°. However, the manufacturer has implemented a leverage mechanism, but the lid needs to be opened way too much for comfort. On the other hand, the bezels around the matte display are thin, but there is some sorcery happening in the top one. Firstly, there is the camera which can be either an HD or an FHD unit. In addition, there is also an IR face recognition sensor for Windows Hello authentication. Finally, there is a proximity sensor, which has the function to look for the user's presence, and when the user is not around, the dedicated software turns the display off.
In terms of its keyboard, the device lacks a NumberPad section. The keyboard is backlit though and feels generally comfortable for typing, once the user gets used to the positioning without a number pad. In addition, there is a touchpad which has a large footprint and offers smooth gliding. However, it is worth mentioning that it is not as responsive as the trackpads of the Apple world but it is definitely functionable without a wireless mouse.
As for its display, the device has been equipped with a 15.6-inches Full HD IPS panel and 1920 х 1080 pixels resolution. The Dell Latitude 15 7520 comes with four processor options which includes the Core i5-1135G7, Core i5-1145G7, Core i7-1165G7 and Core i7-1185G7 with an integrated Iris Xe Graphics G7. There is also up to 32GB RAM and up to 1000GB storage. The device has been equipped with a 63Wh battery pack which lasts for 10 hours and 18 minutes of web browsing and 9 hours and 17 minutes of video playback. Overall, it is a great laptop to be explored, depending on the need and preference of the user.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
