At first glance, you will see that the device has a silver-colored, eye-catching silver coat, but in some other conditions, the gray color turns a little purple to look a bit attractive.

The space of the armrests is quite large, so I don’t feel tired when using it for long. Huawei has understood the desire of the user and brought a very close design, but unfortunately, the MateBook D 15 does not have a backlight on the bottom. An interesting thing about the MateBook D 15 keyboard is that there is an “underground” webcam right between the F6 and F7 keys. With a unique hidden mechanism underneath, MateBook D 15 brings a seamless style to the edge of the screen and attracts this mechanism.

- Hard drive: SSD 256GB NVMe PCIe and 1 TB SATA3 HDD.
Hardware configuration of Huawei MateBook D 15.
Looking at the above configuration, the point that caught my attention the most was the AMD Ryzen 5 3500U CPU of the laptop. As I mentioned in the previous hand, the R7 3500U CPU is the new processor that was launched in the first months of 2020. According to AMD, this chip will bring outstanding performance in the price range. Recently, I am also interested in AMD products when they bring powerful, stable and even superior processors in the price range.
I used GeekBench 5 software to measure the CPU and performance of Huawei MateBook D 15. First, in the CPU test, the GeekBench 5 software measured the single-core CPU score of 425 points and the multi-core score of 1,626 points. Meanwhile in the performance test, this prestigious software scores an average of over 7,000 points (specifically 7,074 points).

Effective heat dissipation
Besides configuration and performance, I also care about the laptop’s heat sink. I used the Huawei MateBook D 15 for more than a week and said, “Wow, a metal laptop but it doesn’t get hot at all.” I tried touching the top of the keyboard and felt a little warm, while the armrest is not hot at all, so it will not affect your experience.

In the past, I used two software to measure the heat sink, namely Real Temp and AIDA64. However, today I want to use a new software that is CPU CPUID HWMonitor. After a period of waiting, the software for the CPU temperature ranges from 45-50 degrees C. This is a normal temperature and it also shows that the heat sink of Huawei MateBook D 15 works really well. and effective.
4. MateBook D15 battery life reaches more than 4 hours
In terms of battery life, the Huawei MateBook D 15 makes me not disappointed when allowed for a long time to use. I rarely charge it, but it does not take too much time to recharge when Huawei comes with a quick charger in the laptop case.
Of course, not only me but even readers need to have specific data on battery life of Huawei MateBook D 15. Therefore, I used BatteryMon software to measure laptop battery life on condition as follows:
- Use 7 Chrome tabs, Photoshop and Lightroom at the same time.
- 100% screen brightness.
- 50% sound.
- WiFi and notifications open continuously.

With the above conditions, I have measured the battery life of the MateBook D 15 is 4 hours and 30 minutes in the usage time of 1 hour 32 minutes. Although the battery life did not reach as expected, I found myself 4 hours still enough to meet the deadline. Thanks to the long battery life, you will be assured to bring your laptop with you when you go out to run the deadline extremely convenient. But do not be subjective and should still carry the charger with you.
5. Warm sound

Did you know, Huawei MateBook D 15 is equipped with Dolby Audio Premium technology – the technology often used on today’s laptops. Dolby Audio brings outstanding advantages such as surround sound emulation when creating surround sound effects (sound coming from many directions) by software to make sound better.
It also filters audio for clearer sound and eliminates most background noise, improving audio detail.
In addition, what is more attractive about Huawei MateBook D 15?
And why not. Huawei MateBook D 15 also has one more special feature: PC Manager. It sounds strange, but I’ll just call quickly with the most outstanding feature of this app is Huawei Share, which allows you to connect your laptop to Huawei phones intelligently.
How does this feature work? Just need you open PC Manager, select My Phone and click Connect (connect), the app will automatically detect nearby Huawei devices to connect. I used the Huawei P40 Pro to connect and it only took a few seconds to finish it.

Once connected, you will be allowed to use two screens at the same time as the picture above is extremely convenient. That way, you can just use your phone, display the necessary information on the laptop screen or vice versa, activate the application on your phone with a laptop. When you use Facebook on your phone (while still connected to the laptop), the laptop screen will show the same interface and where you surf, the screen will surf the same.

I have used my phone to try texting and found that the laptop screen is displayed the same way. You can also click on the chat on your laptop to try typing in reverse, but I feel like Huawei Share is not complete and still flickering. In the camera app, both devices work very smoothly and rarely freeze.
