HP Spectre x360 13 (2019) Review: A Beast Inside

HP’s spectre line up has always been one of the best-looking laptops in the market since it was launched and the design this year is just more of what we saw last year.

The spectre series laptops have also always been one of the best 2-in-1 laptops in the market with that said people’s expectations for the new HP Spectre x360 2019 are high this year.

HP Spectre x360 13 (2019) Review

The base variant of the HP spectre x360 costs around $1,010 and comes with an Intel i5 processor there are many different specifications that the HP Spectre x360 can be bought with, but the availability of these variants will highly depend on your location.

But even with all the fancy design and new features is the HP spectre x360 worth buying? Well here’s our full review for the 2019 HP Spectre x360.

Design and Features

The 2019 HP spectre x360 has had some major design upgrades when compared to the last years model, the design is much fancier than it ever was in the previous generations. One big change in design this year is the laptop’s corners.

All the four corners that are situated at the side where the hinge is located have now been turned diagonal. The left diagonal corner of the deck now houses the power button while the right diagonal corner on the deck houses a USB type-C port.

Some people can find the placement of the power location a bit weird or less accessible but that’s just the way HP has put it this time.

The back of the lid houses the HP logo, the laptop is mainly available in two colors, one being the “Dark Ash Silver” while the other being the “Poseidon Blue”. Talking about the screen the HP Spectre x360 has a 13.3 inches touch panel with 1080p Full HD resolution, there is also a 15 inches version available for this laptop.

The screen is surrounded by thin side bezels but has a huge top and bottom chin. The top chin houses the perfectly positioned webcam while the bottom chin houses another hp logo in the center. Considering how fancy the laptop looks and costs the huge top and bottom chins are just a bitter disappointment.

The webcam on the Spectre x360 is a Full HD Infrared camera that supports windows hello for facial recognition. The screen also comes with corning gorilla glass protection which is a necessity for any 2-in-1 laptop these days.

The laptop also supports the HP sure view technology which when activated will block many viewing angles that won’t allow your screen to be visible to others in public but that’s not all the laptop also comes with a free stylus that can be very useful for content creators.

The deck is sufficiently big and doesn’t feel overcrowded at all. The keyboard has a nice layout but it lacks the num pad which can be an issue for some people. The keys on the spectre x360 are evenly spaced and responsive.

HP Spectre x360 13 (2019) Review

Right above the keyboard is the speaker grill, the speakers on the laptop do get considerably loud. For additional safety, a fingerprint sensor is located right beneath the keyboard.

The trackpad is located at the bottom of the deck. The trackpad on this laptop is just okay. There are many other laptops available in the market with better trackpads but considering the laptop is a 360 degree foldable 2-in-1 laptop the bad trackpad is forgivable.

Performance and Specifications

The laptop is available in many specifications, the base variant of the laptop can be bought at a price of about $1,010 with an 8th generation Intel i5-8265U processor and 256 GB of SSD storage, the highest customizable version can probably be bought an Intel i7-8565U processor, 512 GB of storage, 16 GB of RAM, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050Ti and 4K display but the availability of that variant is highly dependable on the location you are buying it from.

The performance on this laptop is just fine, it’s definitely not for gamers but the laptop will do most of your day to day work and is best suited for content creation but if you need a laptop that can do most of your work and still be able to run some games you can buy the Spectre x360 with a 4GB Nvidia GeForce 1050Ti graphic card.

There aren’t many issues like thermal throttling while day to day work but the laptop can get a bit warm while high usage. The battery life is one of the biggest strengths of this laptop, according to the listed information on HP’s site the 13 inches version of this laptop should get you around 22 hours of screen on time.

Verdict

The HP Spectre x360 is no doubt one of the best 2-in-1 laptops you can buy in the market right now, most of the specifications in the laptop can be customized which makes the performance highly variable but overall the performance is good and the battery life is just phenomenal. The only thing that is not good is the trackpad and it can drastically be improved.
