2-in-1 Convertible HP Spectre x360 16 (2024) laptop review: A powerful Core-Ultra allrounder with OLED

Tablet or laptop? 2-in-1! HP's Spectre x360 16 is a premium 2-in-1 convertible with a new, high-res 16:10 OLED touchscreen and pen input. While last year's predecessor still used an Intel Gen 12 CPU, this year's model has skipped a generation and now uses a Core Ultra with an NPU for AI applications. Furthermore, the device has been given even more updates and in this review, we will be looking at whether they have improved the 16-inch Spectre.

The 2024 HP Spectre x360 16 is even lighter than its predecessor, makes use of a new CPU that skips an entire generation, features a new screen (whose resolution has sunk a little, however), a new case and a webcam that now has a 9-MP resolution instead of 5. So, lots of reasons to test the 2-in-1 convertible again and compare it to the 2023er HP Spectre x360 16

Aside from this, the Spectre x360 16 has to compete against other convertibles, including the Lenovo Yoga 7i Gen 8, the brand-new Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold 16, the LG Gram 2in1 as well as the Asus ExpertBook B5 Flip OLED.

Case - Metal with slanted interfaces

Even though it looks very similar at first glance: The case is new. The same can be said for the laptop's color, as instead of "Nocturne Blue", the aluminum case is now available in "Nightfall Black". Although, the black looks more like a brown-gray tone. 

Its beveled rear corners are once again striking, with ports on the left for headsets and a USB-C port with a charging function for the power supply on the right. Apart from that, however, the connections have changed significantly, but more on that later.

The Spectre is very stable thanks to its aluminum case, and the same can be said for the display. Even so, you can elicit very subtle noises from the base when twisting it. The two hinges also appear to be very stable and they allow for the screen to be rotated by 360 degrees so you can use the touchscreen like a tablet. Despite the grip gap on the front, it takes a bit of strength to open the lid, and it isn't possible to do with one hand.

Compared to its predecessor, the new 16-inch Spectre has lost around 100 grams of weight. Even so, 1.9 kg is no lightweight build in this class—the LG Gram (1.5 kg) is lighter, for example, and so is the Asus ExpertBook B5 Flip OLED. The other competitors all weigh around 1.9kg to 2 kg. 

The rest of the x360's measurements are roughly the same as its predecessor. Some competitors are noticeably thinner and 19.8 mm is rather on the higher end of the scale. The new ThinkPad X1 Fold 16 with its foldable screen is, of course, a special case.

Connectivity - A 9-MP webcam, but few ports

A lot has been changed in this field and not entirely in a positive way, unfortunately, as the new Spectre has noticeably fewer ports than its predecessor. It is a shame, for example, that its SD card reader has been done away with. Its old power connection has also been axed and the new model can only be charged via USB-C. In general, we welcome this, however, the manufacturer has ruined this by not installing an additional USB port specifically for charging. Instead, one of the existing two Thunderbolt 4 USB-C ports has to take on the job. As the manufacturer has also gotten rid of the device's SD card reader, an additional USB port would've been a good choice.

Its layout has also been changed: Now, the HDMI slot is on the right instead of the left, which may be an issue for right-handed people when dealing with bulky display cables—even if the port is very far back.

While the predecessor model already supported WiFi 6E, HP has topped this with the new model mastering the new WiFi 7 standard. 

Its transfer rates are very good within the 6-GHz frequency as well as the 5-GHz network.

Webcam

The laptop's predecessor already featured a 5-MP webcam for high-resolution video calls. Still, HP has provided a further improvement with the new Spectre 16's webcam even featuring a resolution of 9 megapixels with night-mode support (via infrared). 

However, its video resolution continues to "only" be 1,440p and the "unused" additional pixels are utilised by HP for a variety of effects such as auto framing etc. All this is supported via AI functions such as noise suppression. Within the HP Command Center's "GlamCam" section, you have a whole bunch of settings to choose from, from hand gestures to control the camera right through to security functions and screen time monitoring via the camera. The camera features a physical shutter that can be activated via the key (fn +) F2.

Although its pictures feature a high resolution, their color accuracy leaves more to be desired.

Security

Power button with a fingerprint scanner

A TPM 2.0 security module is integrated into the CPU.

The x360 16 also has a fingerprint scanner, which is integrated into the power button.

As mentioned above, the webcam also has a shutter.

Accessories and warranty

Aside from a 100-watt power supply and all the usual paperwork, HP has thankfully also included the HP Tilt Pen MPP 2.0 input stylus with the laptop. However, a laptop case, which was delivered with the previous model, is no longer included. 

HP provides the device with a two-year warranty for parts and labor. However, no on-site repair is possible.

Maintenance

The bottom plate is only secured via 4 Torx T4 screws. They can be removed quickly, whereby the two screws near the hinges are larger than the ones at the front.

Prying open the sturdy aluminum underside isn't exactly easy, but it can be done from the front, where the inlets for the speakers provide an attack surface. The clips have quite a firm hold, so you may have to pry the case open carefully with a flat spatula.

On the inside, you can access the fans, WLAN module, SSD, speakers and the battery. Unfortunately, the RAM is permanently installed and cannot be replaced. Many of the components are located under a black plastic cover, which can be easily lifted despite its adhesive surface.

Input devices - An input stylus and a large touchpad

Keyboard

The keys are a slightly lighter gray than the darker background. This and the white lettering make them stand out well from the rest of the laptop. 

The height of the up/down arrow keys is halved, but otherwise the keys are nice and big (approx. 1.65 x 1.65 mm) and the layout is very tidy. It doesn't feature a numeric keypad.

The webcam can be covered by pressing F2, and the push button is located somewhat unusually on the right shift key, which we quickly found very good, as it is easier to reach than on the top row where it can usually be found.

The keys feature a short to medium lift, but their feedback is pleasantly clear so that typing on the keyboard feels quick and smooth. Their typing noise isn't too loud.

The keyboard has uniform white backlighting, which also illuminates the special functions and features two brightness levels.

The touchpad

Similar to the new Razer Blade 16, the laptop's touchpad is very large (approx. 16 x 10 cm). However, this is a positive aspect of the Spectre, as we did not have any problems with unintentional palm touches.

Its surface is very smooth and we had no problems even with slow movements. Its sensitivity decreases slightly toward the lower corners but otherwise, its responsiveness is always good.

Clicking the integrated keys is remarkably quiet, but their feedback is still very noticeable—even though the pressure point is flat as usual.

Touchscreen and the HP Tilt Pen MPP 2.0

In addition to the keyboard and touchpad, the x360 16 can also be operated via the touchscreen using your fingers or the supplied stylus.

Both work very well. The Corning Gorilla Glass surface ensures that the pen glides along very smoothly, especially when used in tablet mode.

Display - A 2.8K OLED touchscreen with a 120-Hz refresh rate

Clear OLED subpixels
Clear OLED subpixels

The device's 16-inch touchscreen is an OLED panel from Samsung. Its resolution of 2,880 x 1,800 (2.8 K) is slightly lower than its predecessor (3,072 x 1,920 pixels), but thanks to its OLED technology, you get great colors and contrast levels. The screen features a 16:10 aspect ratio and a refresh rate of 120 Hz.

We measured an average brightness of 425 nits in SDR. In HDR, you can expect it to be about 100 nits brighter. As is typical for OLEDs, its brightness distribution is close to perfection, as is its black level, which raises its contrasts to a very high level.

The model supports a refresh rate of 48-120 Hz and features edge-to-edge glass, anti-reflective Corning Gorilla Glass and a blue light filter. Despite its nominally anti-reflective surface, it is still quite reflective—at least in dark surroundings.

Its response times are fast and OLED screens don't have to deal with any backlight bleeding anyway.

Straight out of the box, the Spectre 16's calibration is decent, however, its DeltaE values aren't as low as we would have hoped, with values sometimes reaching over 2. However, even our manual calibration only pushed the deviations down slightly. Still, the grayscale value could be brought below 2.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
1 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.5 ms rise
↘ 0.5 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 1 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.5 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
0.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.4 ms rise
↘ 0.4 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 1 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (33.8 ms).

Due to the OLED display flickering, we had to manually determine the screen's rise and fall times, which can be seen in the following screenshots.

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 480 Hz

The display backlight flickers at 480 Hz (worst case, e.g., utilizing PWM) .

The frequency of 480 Hz is relatively high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering. However, there are reports that some users are still sensitive to PWM at 500 Hz and above, so be aware.

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17942 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Outdoors, the screen's slightly reflective surface can't prevent all reflections but thanks to its good brightness and high contrasts, visibility remains decent in the shade. You should just avoid direct sunlight.

As is typical for OLED, the screen boasts very wide viewing angles. Its brightness and colors remain stable even when viewed from extreme angles.

Performance - Sole entertainer Intel Core Ultra

The business laptop is equipped with an Intel Core Ultra 7 155H featuring an integrated Intel Arc graphics card, 32 GB RAM and a 1-TB SSD. HP itself advertizes the Spectre as a productivity laptop for every situation. The touchscreen that can be folded into a tablet mode, pen input and the new Core Ultra processor with an AI chip are all its main selling points and make the x360 16 very flexible to use.

Testing conditions

There are no performance profiles listed for the Spectre x360 16 within HP's Command Center, and there is only a single balanced mode in the Windows power options. We used this mode for testing.

Only balanced mode is available in Windows
Only balanced mode is available in Windows

Processor

The high-end Intel Core Ultra 7 155H CPU comes from the new Meteor Lake series and integrates an NPU unit for AI applications. The processor has 14 cores (6 P-cores, 8 E-cores). The P-cores are capable of hyperthreading and there are two additional low-power efficiency cores, resulting in a total of 22 threads.

Its maximum turbo clock is 4.8 GHz. An Arc graphics card with 8 Xe cores is integrated into the processor.

The Cinebench loop already showed that the Spectre is more suited to short periods of load, while the slim convertible's performance drops over longer periods. Nevertheless, the new CPU outperformed the old Core-i models in its competitors and, as a result, won the (provisional) performance crown across all CPU benchmarks. This is at least until we test further devices with the new Core Ultra CPUs. For comparison: The same CPU is significantly weaker in the smaller 14-inch Spectre x360—see infographic (beige/brown curve). Its predecessor with the i7-12700H was outperformed by around 9 per cent across all CPU tests.

In battery mode, its Cinebench R15 multi-core performance dropped by around 32 per cent. The screenshots on the right show that its initial performance was higher when connected to the mains. However, its performance in battery mode was similarly good during the other runs at around 42 watts, although its performance also dropped to 22 watts towards the end of some runs in battery mode. On the other hand, it never consistently achieved over 40 watts when connected to the power, either.

System performance

In PCMark 10, our x360 16 came out on top overall compared to most of last year's competition, even if the CPU was a little weak in the Essentials. All-in-all, the system feels very fast and we did not notice any noticeable delays.

DPC latency

LatencyMon detected the first problems as soon as the browser was opened. These latency values increased slightly when opening several browser tabs. Overall, its values were still some of the lowest in comparison. However, we were disappointed with its playback of our 4K/60 fps YouTube video, as we detected 13 dropped frames in 60 seconds. The laptop has some catching up to do here, as especially for a productivity laptop, this value is painfully high.

Storage devices

HP has installed a 1-TB PCIe 4 NVMe SSD from Kioxia into the laptop. This storage device is ranked 37th in our SSD best list. The manufacturer uses 112-layer 3D TLC flash memory (3 bits per cell) and an SLC cache.

It performed very well within our test laptop—especially in the endurance test via DiskSpd, as we noted no throttling problems and its performance was very good in comparison.

The fact that it still only achieved third place across all tests and came a full 17 per cent behind our average rating for this SSD model is due to this model's very weak 4K read and write performance.
