HP Envy X360 2-in-1 15.6 Inch FHD Touchscreen Laptop, AMD Six-Core Ryzen 5 4500U, With Backlit Keyboard, Fingerprint Reader, HDMI, Windows 10

HP Envy x360 15 is one of the first laptops that sport AMD’s latest 4th generation Ryzen U series processors. This model is the midrange laptop. Not only the HP Envy x360 15 2020 is a budget laptop that you can buy, but also perform well. HP Envy x360 convertible features a thin, light, and stylish chassis and has good performance. The price is also good at $835. With a comfortable keyboard, webcam privacy filter, and high-quality screen this 2-in-1 convertible laptop is a good machine. With the light and compact chassis, you can use this flexible machine as a conventional laptop or a tablet.

Availability

The Envy x360 offers different options that you can choose like AMD Ryzen 3, Ryzen 5, or Ryzen 7 processors, according to your requirement and budget. Also, Envy x360 offers 8GB or 16GB of memory, and up to 1TB SSD. To handle graphics output all configurations use the AMD Radeon Graphics built into the Ryzen processor. You can also configure your Envy x360 with 300-nit, 400-nit, and 1000-nit options, which all have 1080p resolution.

Performance

If I compare the Envy x360 15 with IdeaPad Flex 5 14, which has the same processor Envy x360 performs very well. So, you can use HP Envy x360 for editing images in Adobe Photoshop or video editing in any video editor software Envy x360 will perform well. Because the six-core 4500U performance is comparable to i7. So, you can also play games on Envy x360. To keep cool and fans down you can use the HP’s recommended preset like Comfort and Quiet. You can change this setting in HP’s Command Center.

Design

With a black color scheme and light and compact chassis, the HP Envy x360 convertible looks nicer and premium laptop. Envy x360 features a 720p webcam with a built-in privacy shutter. This is one of the laptops that HP uses this automatic shutter on a few of its most recent laptop models to provide the best solution to addressing the problem of accidentally leaving your camera on.

The Envy isn’t the lightest laptop but it’s a verry well-built and looks professional laptop. With a smooth and comfortable texture, the keys are firm and quiet. The Envy x360 also features stereo speakers and a Bang & Olufsen audio control center. There are different presets that you can adjust according to your need like music, movies and voice and also you can adjust for different tunes.

Display

Envy has managed to implement an 88 percent screen-to-body ratio and the result of that is a stunning four-sided bezel-less screen it’s absolutely an engineering marvel. Resolution is 1920 x 1080 which is perfect and that’s due to 88 percent aspect ratio so that means you get more vertical screen real estate when you’re working with different apps so expect attractive colors with good contrast. The Envy x360 doesn’t have the option of a 4K resolution or OLED display it’s available only in full HD.

There is a brightness of 400 nits, which is perfectly viewable in most indoor situations because Colors are excellent and details are crisp. HP Envy x360 convertible offers 300-nit and 400-nit options, which all have 1080p resolution. I should also mention that HP also offers the Envy x360 with a 1,000-nit display with an integrated privacy filter. The screen also supports HP’s MPP2.0 pen, but you have to store it separately because there’s no place on the laptop itself to store it when not in use.

Ports

HP Envy comes with two USB Type-A ports and has managed to squeeze them in with trapdoor hinges that cover the bottom half. There’s also a single USB-C port, a power port, a headphone jack, and a microSD card reader. Envy x360 also features 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6 Wireless connections and Bluetooth 5, although the entry-level version supports the older 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard. The HP Envy x360 15’s dual speakers project through grilles at the bottom of the laptop and offer the best sound quality.

HP Envy x360 15 Battery life

The HP Envy x360 gives you the freedom to work all day on a single battery charge. A special battery gives Envy x360 an amazing up to 8 hours of autonomy. If you’re looking for a 2-in-1 convertible laptop with the best battery life look no further than the Envy x360.

Verdict

This is one of the best 2-in-1 convertible laptops you can get. It is powerful enough to perform multiple tasks, a comfortable keyboard, and has a good battery life that you can use it for up to 8 hours without charging. With a black color scheme and light and compact chassis, the HP Envy x360 is one the best 2-in 1 laptops. Envy x360 sport AMD’s latest 4th generation Ryzen U series processors that perform very well.
