Huawei incorporated the Matebook D 15 with its trademark of bringing premium specs and features to midrange devices. The naming and design aspect of the Huawei Matebook D 15 led us to expect the laptop to go toe-to-toe with other premium 15-inch laptops. Admittedly, the Matebook D 15 looks and feels like a Macbook, but the laptop’s performance is definitely out of its league due to the Ryzen 5 3500U’s performance. The weak processor is compensated with a fast storage solution to help in cache and loading times, while its short battery life is solved with a phone-sized 65w charger.
Huawei’s previous Matebooks disrupted the market by offering superb performance and quality. At the price of Php 38,000, Huawei breaks the barrier of 15-inch premium and entry-level laptops with the Matebook D 15 sporting all the must-haves without the unnecessary nice to haves. It is merely a premium-looking notebook that can get simple tasks done without any drawbacks found on a regular office laptop. The Matebook D 15 is an easy recommendation for users who want the portability of a thin laptop but with the perk of having a bigger screen real estate to work at. If you find its performance lacking for your workload, then the second iteration of the Matebook D 15 featuring 4th gen Ryzen processors is something to look forward to in the future.
