Huawei Matebook D15 with AMD processor is a great option for its price and its design. Except for the affordable price and its stylish design, the processor of this laptop is also enough for most occasions. If you are on a budget but yet looking for a laptop with a nice processor, Huawei Matebook d 15 with AMD Ryzen 5 is on my recommendation laptop list. There are two processor editions of Huawei Matebook D15 AMD, Ryzen 5 3500u is good enough for my daily use. So without further ado, let’s get started with this laptop review.

Light Weight with Stylish Look
Huawei Matebook d15 with the grey color is both low-key and good-looking. The laptop body is made of metal instead of plastic. Although it is made of metal, the weight of this laptop is surprisingly light, the side of the laptop is also very thin, which make it portable for those businessmen or student who often need to carry a laptop on their way to plane or library. The 15.6 inches FullView screen has narrow bezels, which is very suitable for video-editing or movie watching.
The keyboard is nothing to shout about, but the camera hide under the key is one of my favorite designs. With just one press, the camera will pop up. Though the camera is located between F6 and F7, the angle of view is still able to capture the face, and it’s not the extreme elevation. The power button has a built-in fingerprint reader, which means you only need to press the power button, your laptop will log in. This fingerprint reader combined with a power button is also a quite fascinating design.
On the side of the Huawei Matebook D 15, there are six ports for different use. The left side ports are two USB 2.0 ports and an audio jack. A USB-C, USB 3.0 and HDMI port are on the right side. USB-C port means you can use your phone charger to charge your laptop, which is not common in mid-range laptops.
Good Performance in Daily Use
The brightness and color accuracy isn’t that great compared to its’ design. Maybe it’s the blue light reduce function, the colors that appear is a little washed-out, which is not suitable for those who need an accurate color screen. The screen is ideal for people who spend a lot of time staring at a computer screen. It reduces blue light so your eyes are not so tired. The screen of Huawei Matebook D15 is rather s moderate eye-impairing blue light reducer screen.
The Huawei Matebook D 15 AMD is equipped with an AMD Ryzen 5 3500U processor, 8GB RAM and 256GB memory, and a Vega 8 integrated graphics. If you don’t need your laptop to do some hard work such as running some huge games or you don’t need to do anything like 3D modeling and rendering, it’s totally enough for daily use, The Radeon Vega 8 Graphics can hold some basic games but not those games that have high requirements for computer configuration. The SharkFin cooling tech makes Huawei Matebook D15 remain quiet and cool during gaming or other heavy tasks.
The multi-screen collaboration function of the Huawei Matebook 15 is also a highlight. The Matebook D15 can be paired with a Huawei phone through NFC. The screen of your phone will show on your laptop. This function can also allow you to use your phone on the laptop, and the files can be easily dragged and drop between the laptop and your phone, which makes the files transfer become easy and convenient.
Fast Charge Speed
The battery life can last almost 6 hours if you use it to watch videos. But the laptop is equipped with a 65W charger, the charging speed is very fast, basically, it only takes three hours to fully charge a computer.
The price of the Huawei Matebook D15 AMD is £600, a reasonable price for a laptop like this. Sometimes you can buy it for about £500 during a sales promotion. To sum up, it’s a quite decent laptop with a budget price, if you don’t use this laptop to run some heavy tasks or huge games, it’s worth more than it’s being sold for.
