HP Envy X360 2-in-1 Convertible Yoga Flip Touchscreen Ultrabook Laptop Review

HP is the top-notch brand in the world of computer electronics. It provides users with unique and innovative products that satisfy the demands of the customers with useful features, sturdy design, and excellent performance. Here is the review of HP Envy X360 2-in-1 Convertible Yoga Flip Touchscreen Ultrabook Laptop – for more information see TheTechInsider.org.

Design

The exterior surface of this incredible device is coated with a brushed, bright metallic plastic with a glossy bright bezel on the borders of the screen. Moreover, on the body of this ultrabook, you can see monochrome logos of HP, Envy, and Beats Audio that enhance the overall look and increase its class even more. On the corner of the right wrist rest, there is a sticker of Intel’s Core i5 processor.

All in all, in looks, this device looks way smarter, brighter, and more mature than the other available X360 laptops. Also, its screen is even bigger than most 2-in-1 machines. It has a 15.6-inch screen, weighs about 2.4 kg, and has a maximum thickness of 24 mm.

However, the build quality of the HP Envy is slightly disappointing. If you press the wrist rest portion with pressure, you might feel that the keyboard is bending upwards. Also, the display might flicker if you push the rear of the screen with light pressure. Apart from that, its hinge is robust and works extremely well while switching between different modes.

Some people might have issues with its large size and weight, but a large screen is a very beneficial feature as it makes working on the laptop easier and less complicated than smaller screens. However, due to its huge screen and bulkiness, it is also less manageable than rival devices. Moreover, it comes with two USB 3.0 ports and one USB 2.0 connector, an SD card slot, and an HDMI output as well as Gigabit Ethernet.

Performance

The performance of the HP Envy X360 is average when it comes to using it in different modes. It does work amazingly as a conventional laptop, but the tablet mode might deliver a less-than-desirable performance. The 15.6-inch widescreen is only comfortable to use when you’re placing it on a table or using while sitting on the sofa. But if you wish to use it with only one hand, you might have some difficulties.

Apart from that, it possesses a Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080, which displays high-quality images and videos. However, in some cases, you might find that the contrast is too low, making the colors look weak and washed out. Hence, the overall performance is okay if you don’t have issues with the perfect visualization of media and if you don’t want to use the tablet mode with one hand, but if these factors are critical for you, we would suggest you buy a different hybrid laptop.

Pros

  • Sleek design
  • Sturdy laptop-to-tablet switching system
  • Convertible multimode functions
  • Excellent Core i5 processor
  • Provides high-quality Beats-branded audio

Cons

  • Built quality is mediocre, and the lid is flexible
  • Possesses an average battery life
  • Tablet mode is not convenient to use with one hand
  • Contrast is too low in dark situations
