Reviews for the Huawei MateBook D 15-53010TUY
We were impressed by the MateBook with an Intel CPU, and now it appears as though it is just as good with an AMD processor. Huawei has made a number of changes to ensure that the AMD CPU can reach its full potential.
This is the MateBook D 15’s major compromise. The dullness is even noticeable when watching films. Battery life, at just under six hours in our video-playback test, is also disappointing. But the trade-off is a sleek and quick machine, and at this price that’s no disaster.

The Huawei MateBook D 15 (2020) is a nicely designed laptop that is reasonably priced and offers a decent level of performance thanks to AMD's mobile Ryzen technology. Despite taking a lot of design cues from Apple, it also includes some useful innovations, like a hidden webcam in the keyboard and NFC sharing with compatible smartphones, but the battery life and screen are disappointing.

If you’re looking for a good-looking notebook that delivers the goods for not a lot of money, then the MateBook D15 is one of the best ones around. A metal chassis, decent hardware plus additional flagship features make it a really solid notebook for the money. You’ll be hard-pressed to find other notebooks that have a Php 37,990 price tag that has all of the features that we mentioned in the MateBook D15.

The HUAWEI MateBook D 15‘s HUAWEI Share feature is definitely a major selling point if you are using a HUAWEI smartphone, as it virtually eliminates the need for cables for transferring files between your phone and your laptop, which is something I do on a daily basis. If you don’t own a HUAWEI smartphone, it is still a pretty compelling package as its very portable for a 15.6″ laptop, although there are some drawbacks like non-upgradeable RAM, poor selection of I/O ports and a pretty basic display. For RM2499, it is pretty affordable, and it is almost possible to forgive some of the shortcomings, especially if you aren’t a heavy user. I would recommend the HUAWEI MateBook D 15 for students as its relatively inexpensive and definitely capable of some casual gaming, and if they use a HUAWEI smartphone, it makes their daily tasks even more convenient because students have a terrible habit of making groups in Whatsapp for discussions. Yes, you know who you are.

If there’s a phrase I’d use for the Huawei MateBook D 15, it’d be good enough. The display is good enough, the system’s performance is good enough to handle most workloads, there are a decent amount of ports, audio quality from the speakers is good enough, the webcam and mic are good enough for Skype calls. The battery life is also good enough for a 15.6-inch laptop.

I’d say, for the price of RM2,499, I think the Huawei MateBook D 15 is an easy recommendation for those who just want to use a laptop to get some simple tasks done. Just keep in mind that there is no way to upgrade the laptop other than storage.

The hardware isn’t that beefy, but then again the MateBook D isn’t meant for heavy graphical tasks – it’s a notebook for people who need to get work done.

On the endurance front, the MateBook D 15 proved to be serviceable if unremarkable with an active battery life of about 7 or so hours with balanced power settings before you need to find a charging point. On that front, the notebook’s usage of a 65W USB Type-C charger makes things logistically easier, especially if you have a smartphone of recent vintage as you can charge both with the same cable.

On that front, the MateBook D 15 eschews the traditional Intel and NVIDIA combo and instead integrates a mid-range AMD Ryzen 5 3500U mobile processor with integrated Radeon Vega 8 graphics, 8GB RAM and a dual storage combo that consists of a 256GB SSD and a 1TB hard disk. This setup puts it as a very capable midrange workhorse that can tackle a variety of tasks like paperwork, movies and basic gaming without undue trouble.
