Reviews for the Huawei Matebook D 15-53010FDQ
Source: Ultrabook Review
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.

Model: 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.
