Reasons Why The Huawei MateBook D 15 Should Be Your Next Laptop
Huawei recently launched in the Philippines its newest notebook, the MateBook D 15. It’s a good-looking machine that packs a punch for its asking price. And if you’re thinking of upgrading your gear, let us give you reasons why you should get this device.
1. FullView display w/ Uni-Metal Body
If you don’t like thick screen bezels on a notebook, then you will love the 15.6-inch FullView display on the Huawei MateBook D 15. The bezels are only 5.3mm thick, which results in an immersive 87% screen-to-body ratio. It also has a 1080p resolution, an IPS panel for good viewing angles, anti-glare protection, and is certified by TÜV Rheinland for low blue light. Just select Eye Comfort Mode, and it will automatically adjust the white balance and color tone to avoid eyestrain.
To complement the nice display, Huawei equipped the MateBook D15 with a premium metal body that only weighs 1.3 kg and measures 16.9mm thick. So, not only is it easy to carry around, but it’s also portable, durable, and looks elegant.
2. Huawei Share
One of the challenges of working on a notebook is transferring files from your mobile device. Huawei makes it easy on the MateBook D 15, especially if you have a Huawei smartphone with the help of Huawei Share. It revolves around the three Cs: Connect, Cross, and Continuous. You start with Connect by linking your smartphone to the notebook with the help of proximity-based auto-discovery. And then Cross, as you can easily drag and drop files between devices even without an internet connection. It also has a Multi-Screen Collaboration feature that lets you view your smartphone’s content and control it from the notebook. It’s like running two devices with different systems from the same screen. And Continuous, as you can continue unfinished documents and conversations from your smartphone to the notebook. All the user needs to do is tap the Huawei smartphone on the MateBook D 15. It’s that simple!
3. Fingerprint Power Button
We’re used to seeing fingerprint scanners in more expensive notebooks, that’s why we’re impressed that the MateBook D 15 has this feature. Huawei also integrated it into the power button to go with the sleek yet uncluttered design. Users can also use this to log in to Windows, so not only it’s more secure, but logging in to your account is more convenient.
4. Recessed Camera
Another design feature that Huawei implemented on the MateBook D 15 is the recessed camera. Instead of putting it on the display bezel, it’s placed in the top row of the keyboard. All you need to do is press on the key, and the camera will pop up. When you’re done, press it down again. The design is uncommon, but it provides the following advantages: 1) The camera doesn’t take up unnecessary space from the display. 2) It is angled in an upward direction allowing you to capture a better view of yourself when making video calls. 3) For additional security, as you can be sure that the camera is not recording you when not in use.
5. Three 2-in-1 Scenarios
Huawei boasts what it calls the three 2-in-1 scenarios, which are the integration of features for better user experience. We already discussed the 2-in-1 fingerprint and power button for a one-click startup and login to Windows, and the 2-in-1 notebook and smartphone integration with the help of Huawei Share. The third one is the 2-in-1 USB Type-C port that can accommodate charging and data transfer. Also, the light and compact charger can charge your smartphone at full speed.
6. AMD Ryzen CPU, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD + 1TB HDD
Although priced lower than most ultrabooks, the MateBook D 15 is equipped to handle your productivity needs, including light gaming. It has an AMD Ryzen 5 3500U processor, Radeon Vega 8 Graphics, 8GB DDR4 RAM, 256GB SSD, and 1TB HDD. Keeping the system cool are fans that use the Huawei’s Shark Fin Design 2.0 for better airflow and reduced noise.
7. Attractive price tag
Lastly, the price, the Huawei MateBook D 15 has an SRP of PHP 37,990. Given the features mentioned above as well as the quality, this device offers a lot of value. It’s a Jack of all trades laptop that’s easy to recommend to people who value portability.
