Huawei MateBook D

The Huawei MateBook D is not the most exciting product in Huawei's first laptop range, but it may be suitable as your next computing device with a solidly built design and lots of impressive specs. Despite Huawei's apparent business aspirations, most users will likely compare the MateBook D to other, similar laptops like the Asus VivoBook S15, the HP Envy 15 or even the pricier, but significantly more upscale and powerful Dell XPS 15. The design of the MateBook D is best described as lackluster, as this looks much like any other business-focused laptop used over the past few years. The build quality is very good: gaps are even and the base unit resists twisting quite well with only minor creaks. The display lid twists more readily, but even pushing down hard on the back has no effect whatsoever and the picture remains free of discolorations or ripples. It is heavy at 1.9 kg but does have an attractive top cover. When a user opens it up, he can see the 15.6-inch Full HD display and the keyboard just down below. The MateBook D comes with a matte Full HD IPS panel. At an average of about 260 nits, the BOE panel features similar brightness as the LG panel Asus uses for the VivoBook S15. The display on the Huawei MateBook D looks good, but will not impress as much as the MateBook X with its QHD resolution. Here a user is only getting 142 ppi, but it should provide improved battery life. In terms of processing power, a user will have the choice of either the Core i5 or i7 seventh-generation processors from Intel. The MateBook D features a discrete Nvidia GeForce 940MX in addition to the integrated Intel HD 620. Then there are a variety of RAM options. It gets a little complicated here, but these options range from 4 GB of RAM with 500 GB of storage, which is the cheapest model, up to 16 GB of RAM with 128 GB of SSD storage and 1 TB of HDD storage. System performance is decent. Perceived performance is great with no lags thanks to the primary SSD. Booting is particularly swift at only about 10 seconds from a cold start to the Windows desktop. Huawei has partnered with Dolby to ensure the design of the laptop is ideal for viewing video content. In addition, a few software tweaks should make it more efficient. It means the speakers are in better places for watching movies, as well as having a slightly less reflective screen. One of the benefits of the MateBook D is the number of connectivity ports on offer. There is a DC-in jack, a 3.5 mm headphone jack, two USB 3.0 ports, and a USB 2.0 port, as well as an HDMI port.

Wallet-friendly mainstream..business? Huawei's 15.6-inch mainstream laptop surely looks the part, but while the build quality is good and the overall performance decent, the MateBook D suffers from a few significant shortcomings.

Huawei MateBook D hands-on review

I'm not entirely convinced by the MateBook D. It's too big, and too generic, to really impress. A MacBook Pro is thinner, more powerful, and (I think) better looking.

85% Huawei MateBook D review: AMD Ryzen performance for $629
Source: Neowin English
When people ask me what laptop they should buy, my first question is how much they're looking to spend, right before I ask what they're looking to do with it. Once I clear away the frankly terrible misconception that these people can get a good laptop for $200, I can get them to around $500 or $600, and that makes the Huawei MateBook D very easy to recommend.

Huawei MateBook D Review: Sleek, Attractive AMD Ryzen Powered Ultrabook
Source: Hot Hardware English
The MateBook D doesn't come with all the bells-and-whistles you'll find in more expensive laptops, but it stands out nonetheless. At just $629.99 it offers a lot in terms of graphics performance, portability and style. It also shows AMD as a truly viable option in the mobile market. It doesn't offer the same single core performance as Intel, but it has a better IGP, strong multi-threaded performance, runs cool and quiet, and is generally less expensive. All of this makes the MateBook D a great value for anyone on a budget and an easy recommendation.

The Huawei MateBook D 14 W50F sits between both segments. The stylish case and plentiful security features point towards the laptop being an expensive business laptop. However, Huawei preinstalls Windows 10 Home and has equipped the device with few ports, which aligns the W50F with cheaper office laptops. The real drawback is less to do with the laptop’s classification though.

Huawei MateBook D 2018 53010BRU

I think we are all aware that Huawei is originally a smartphone manufacturer. But a few years ago they started with manufacturing of laptops, just because they saw an opportunity. In my opinion, they delivered what they wanted too. The MateBook D is in the high mid-range compared to the higher MateBook X Pro laptops. It can be considered as a multimedia device too, as it is equipped with entry level dedicated MX150 GPU. Together with Intel 8th generation i5-8250U, casual gaming is also possible. Of course it has its own drawbacks too. For instance, if there were an SSD installed, it would be great, but unfortunately there is only a conventional 1 TB HDD and it is a slow one. Of course you can always change it. A free M.2 slot is there, only if you screw the whole base unit to reach it. Its matte IPS panel is satisfactory, but don’t expect much in terms of brightness. Connectivity wise, there is nothing much. 2 USB 3, 1 USB 2 and an HDMI. A USB Type-C would be nice, but nope. With this package, is it future proof? Absolutely not. It is missing all modern connections. But at least GPU and CPU will stay relevant for maybe next 2-3 years. I suggest you to have an SSD installed as well. In order to not void warranty, go to a service point if there are any in your country. So, should you purchase this laptop? Depending on your budget it can be a good choice. Its price starts from 700 Euros at the time or writing. If there was an SSD, it would be a no miss. But even with its current form at 1.9 kg and 16.9 mm thickness, it is still considerable. If you think this device for day to day office tasks, some multimedia and very light gaming, go ahead. But other than that, I wouldn't suggest it. The HDD really kills the potential here. The other aspect to consider is the form factor. Sure, you can find other devices in this price range with an SSD installed, but they will be most likely made out of plastic, thicker and heavier. You need to pick between form and performance. Considering that you can have an SSD installed later on, you should think of your way of usage. If it is going to sit all day on your desktop and wont be a real mobile companion, then you might consider other options. But if it will be your mobile device, carrying around all day long, definitely have an SSD. It will have a huge impact in overall performance. Shortly, if you are considering this device without having an SSD installed, don't buy it. You might end up complaining to yourself all the time about why your MateBook is slow.

Huawei Matebook D review - Affordable Windows laptop for students and mobile professionals
Source: Tech Nave English
At the price of RM2999, this is actually quite a decent laptop to have and it's perfect for students and working people who travel a lot. It's lightweight, clean looking, tech specs that are good enough to get the job done, good entertainment value for video playback and the Huawei Share is a bonus for every Huawei smartphone user. The only drawbacks I can think of is that it doesn't have any SSD ports and while it can play some light games, games like Dota 2 are just not recommended even on low settings.

Huawei Matebook D 15-53010FDQ

Huawei hasn’t been present in the computer category for a long time but it is now one of the big players in the laptop scene. It tends to offer laptops with good specs and sleek look at an affordable price compared to its competitors such as Dell and HP. Huawei definitely didn’t cut corners in the build quality. The laptop’s entire shell and interior is made of aluminum. The interior doesn’t feel as strong as some of the premium laptops especially the panel around the keyboard and the screen panel tends to flex slightly with pressure. Coupled with a hard hinge, opening the lid requires two hands. However, these are just some minor issues considering the price of this laptop. In this price range, it is still one of the best. The outer part of the lid has a very clean design with just the “HUAWEI” word on it. The same accent is carried to the sides. The edges are rounded and almost all the IO, which consists of two USB-A port, a full-size HDMI port, the DC power cable connector and a headphone jack are placed on the left side. On the right is a single USB-A port. There is no USB-C or a card reader in this laptop. Despite all this, the MateBook D feels expensive and more than its price range. This alone is compelling enough reason to get it. As for the specs, the MateBook D 15-53010FDQ comes with an Intel KabyLake Core i5 -8250 CPU coupled with an Intel UHD 620 for very light gaming. It is shipped with 8 GB of DDR4 RAM and a 256 GB of M2 SATA SSD. As for the connectivity, the laptop is equipped with Wireless AS and Bluetooth 4.1. This is quite odd as even budget phones have started adapting Bluetooth 5. Another bug disadvantage is the lack of lighting for the keyboard. The speakers are also rather weak. As for the display, the MateBook D 15 comes with a matte 15.6-inch Full-HD screen. Early reviews have rated this display as moderately good and enough for the regular daily usage in a office. The brightness is on the lower side, but definitely very useful. The MateBook D 15-53010FDQ only features a 42 Wh, 65 W charger but this isn’t all that bad for that screen resolution. The keyboard is comfortable for typing but Huawei has made quite a few mistakes in this area. The keys are actually small for a 15-inch laptop and they need to be pressed firmly for them to register properly. In short, the Huawei MateBook D is a great laptop for its price. At a very low price, one can get a good looking laptop with some very good specs. Hands-on article by Jagadisa Rajarathnam

80% Huawei MateBook D 15 review (i5-8250U, UHD 620)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
The MateBook D 15 is still a competitive notebook in its class, even one year after its launch. It's not built on the latest hardware platform and lacks certain features, like a backlit keyboard or USB-C port, among others, but it checks most of the other traits regular buyers would expect from a compact and affordable all-day laptop: it's solidly built and lightweight, gets an IPS matte screen and decent speakers, performs well, runs cools and quiet, and lasts for a fair bit on a charge.

Huawei: Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. is a Chinese company founded in 1987 with focus on telecommunications hardware and 170000 employees. In the first quarter of 2016, Huawei had a market share of 8.2% in the smartphone market, making it the third-largest smartphone manufacturer in the world. Compared to the same quarter of 2015, Huawei increased its market share by more than 58%.
In 2014, Huawei created the sub brand Honor and offers certain smartphone series under this name. The name Huawei is usually not listed for these products.
There are a lot of reviews on Huawei phones with slightly above average ratings (as of 2016).
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

NVIDIA GeForce 940MX: Mid-range laptop graphics card based on the Maxwell architecture. Compared to the older 940M, the MX now also supports GDDR5 graphics memory and maybe slightly faster clock speeds.AMD Vega 8: Integrated graphics card of the Ryzen APUs based on the Vega architecture with 8 CUs (= 512 shaders) and a clock of up to 1100 MHz.Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

Manufactured in 14nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

7500U: Kaby-Lake based SoC with two CPU cores clocked at 2.7 to 3.5 GHz, HyperThreading and manufactured with an improved 14nm process.Intel Kaby Lake Refresh:

The four cores are clocked between 1.6 and 3.4 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading. The integrated GPU is clocked between 300 and 1,100 MHz. The SoC is manufactured in a 14nm+ FinFET process. AMD Ryzen 5:

2500U: Mobile APU that integrates four Zen cores clocked at 2 to 3.6 GHz. The TDP is configurable between 12 to 25 Watt (15 W nominal) and the integrated Radeon RX Vega 8 is clocked at up to 1100 MHz.
