2022 HP Spectre x360 13.5 review: The pinnacle subnotebook convertible

For pros on the go. Last year's Spectre x360 14 was one of the best convertible laptops in its size category. This year's refresh addresses many of the shortcomings of its older sibling to be an easy recommendation for the hybrid work-at-home and office lifestyles.

The original 13.5-inch HP Spectre x360 launched in 2020 and it quickly became one of our favorite convertible laptops in its size class. The 2021 refresh would introduce very few changes for what amounted to essentially the same performance and user experience. Fortunately, the 2022 revision includes a handful of changes beyond the obvious CPU upgrade that interested users should definitely want to know about.

Our specific unit in review is the higher-end configuration with the Core i7-1255U CPU, 3000 x 2000 OLED touchscreen, and 16 GB of soldered RAM for approximately $1700 USD retail. Lesser SKUs with the Core i5-1235U and 1980 x 1280 IPS touchscreen are available for lower prices as well. A 1000-nit option exists, but only for certain 1280p IPS SKUs. All options otherwise come with integrated graphics only and no WAN.

Alternatives to the HP Spectre x360 13.5 include other prosumer or office-centric 13.5-inch laptops like the Framework Laptop, Microsoft Surface Laptop 4 13, or the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Yoga series. Note that the 2022 HP model is called the "Spectre x360 13.5" whereas earlier 2020 or 2021 models are called the "Spectre x360 14". We suspect that the manufacturer changed the name this year to more accurately reflect the 13.5-inch screen size.

Case — Rounder And Smoother

HP has revamped the 2020 design for the this 2022 refresh. Most of the changes, however, are largely superficial and with minor internal changes. Users can easily distinguish the 2022 model from the 2020 version by its rounder edges and corners, different keyboard layout, and repositioned ports. Otherwise, chassis rigidity remains just as strong as it was before for a luxurious impression and feel. We especially appreciate how much more serviceable and stronger the HP design is when compared to the closed Surface Laptop 4 13 and more creaky Framework Laptop, respectively.

Both dimensions and weight have not changed from the original 2020 design for better or worse. While that's not necessarily bad, there are several other 13.5-inch laptops that are thinner than our Spectre by a few millimeters or more like the Surface Laptop 4, Framework Laptop, or the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Titanium Yoga G1.

Connectivity — Thunderbolt 4 Support

The 2022 model retains all the ports on the original 2021 model albeit with the 3.5 mm headset jack repositioned. The corner ports continue to be a distinguishing feature of the Spectre series.

SD Card Reader

For some reason or another, HP has significantly downgraded the performance of the MicroSD reader from the previous generation model. Moving 1 GB of images from our UHS-II test card to desktop takes about 21 seconds compared to just 5 to 6 seconds on the older Spectre x360 14.

Webcam

HP has upgraded the integrated webcam from 1 MP on the 2020 model to 5 MP on this 2022 revision. The higher resolution is immediately noticeable for one of the clearest picture quality of any subnotebook webcam. In fact, this Spectre is the first in its size category to integrate a 5 MP webcam. Video quality is still limited to 1080p at 30 FPS, however.

Both a webcam shutter and IR sensor are included for privacy and Windows Hello support, respectively.

Maintenance

The bottom panel comes off easily with just a Torx screwdriver. We appreciate that there are no screws hidden underneath the rubber footing as well.

Users can swap out the SSD and WLAN modules while the RAM modules are fixed. The WLAN module was not removable on the 2021/2020 model as shown by the comparison images below.

Accessories and Warranty

The retail box includes a carrying sleeve, magnetic active stylus pen (MPP2.0 Tilt Pen), and a 4-port USB-C hub (2x USB-A, HDMI, and USB-C). We certainly love that HP throws in a bunch of useful accessories that other laptop makers tend to skimp on.

Input Devices — Comfortable Keyboard With A Large Clickpad

Keyboard

When compared to the 2020 model, HP has completely removed the right column of keys for the 2022 revision. This means that there are no more dedicated keys for PgUp, PgDn, Home, or End as these are now secondary functions associated with the arrow keys. If you rely on these keys a lot for your day-to-day workloads, then you might be disappointed by the sudden change.

Key layout and feedback are both otherwise very close to the 2020 model for a similar typing experience. We still find the keyboards on HP Spectre, Envy, or EliteBook laptops to be some of the best as they are not as spongy or shallow as on most other Ultrabooks.

Touchpad

The clickpad is even larger this time when compared to the 2020 model (12.5 x 8 cm vs. 11.5 x 7.4 cm) for more comfortable multi-touch inputs. Nonetheless, clicking on the integrated mouse buttons still feels softer and spongier than we would like.

While our 2022 test unit uses a different display controller than the 2021 model (SDC4160 vs. SDC4148), both are still 3:2 OLED panels from Samsung for the same viewing experience two years in a row. Core attributes like resolution, refresh rate, gamut, response times, and brightness have not changed. We would love to see 90 Hz or 120 Hz OLED options in the future similar to what Asus is currently offering on some of its ZenBook and VivoBook models.

The OLED panel is not calibrated at factory likely because this isn't an EliteBook or professional laptop which is a shame because OLED is capable of reproducing accurate colors. Average grayscale and color deltaE values are nonetheless still very good at just 2.3 and 1.78, respectively.

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.

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 60.2 Hz ≤ 100 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 60.2 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 100 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 60.2 Hz is very low, so the flickering may cause eyestrain and headaches after extended use.

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 19613 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Flickering is present on all brightness levels much like most other OLED laptop panels we've tested thus far. A frequency of 238 Hz is present from 0 to 37 percent brightness while 38 to 100 percent brightness would exhibit a frequency of 60 Hz.

Outdoor visibility remains the same as on the original since maximum brightness has not changed. Users may want to consider the 1000-nit IPS 1280p SKU if viewability is of utmost concern.

Testing Conditions

We set our unit to Performance mode via the HP Command Center software prior to running any benchmarks below. It's recommended that users become familiar with this software as the six power profile settings can be found here: Smart Sense (auto), Power Saver, Quiet, Cool, Balanced, and Performance.

Processor

CPU performance is excellent with multi-thread results that are faster than on the Inspiron 14 7420 2-in-1 or HP ProBook 450 G9 each equipped with the same Core i7-1255U CPU. Results are thankfully much closer to the Core i7-1260P or Core i7-1280P to be about 1.5x to 2x faster than the Core i7-1165G7 in last year's model.

We recommend avoiding the lower-end Core i5-1235U SKU as that option is barely any faster than the Core i7-1165G7.

System Performance

Storage Devices

Our test unit ships with a 1 TB Micron 3400 (MTFDKBA1T0TFH) PCIe4 x4 NVMe SSD for very fast sequential read and write rates of about 6600 MB/s and 5000 MB/s, respectively. Though it's outgunned by the Western Digital SN850 especially in smaller block sizes, our system is nonetheless able to maintain the maximum transfer rates of the SSD for extended periods as shown by our DiskSpd loop results below.
