Dell G3 15 3500 laptop in review: Robust gaming notebook with 144 Hz screen

Room for two SSDs. The Dell G3 15 is a classic gaming notebook with a massive appearance and a fair amount of performance. Inside you'll find gaming-capable hardware, the heart of which is an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060. In our review, we show what the laptop from Dell has to offer for everyday use.

Dell G3 15 3500-G4DG2

In addition to Alienware notebooks, Dell also sells gaming laptops under its own brand name. This includes, among others, the Dell G5 15, which we were recently able to view in a pure AMD version. Now we'll take a look at the somewhat cheaper G3 series, of which we could already get an impression with the Dell G3 15 3590, for example. This series also includes our current test device, the Dell G3 15 3500, which offers an Intel Core i7-10750H, an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060, 16 GB RAM and a 512 GB SSD in the configuration tested in this review.

With this equipment, it must be able to compete with the similarly priced competitors, which we have listed in the table below. Under each section you can also add other notebooks from our database for comparison.

Case - Solid gaming laptop

Dell manufactures the G3 15 from a very robust plastic. This does not give way even under strong pressure and gives the gaming notebook an extremely robust impression. Although small decorative stripes here and there provide an eye-catcher, the G3 15 looks rather classic overall. The screen is also very torsion-resistant and can be opened with one hand without distorting it. The maximum opening angle is around 140°.

Input devices - gaming laptop with backlight

Keyboard

The keys on Dell's gaming laptop allow your fingertips to stay firmly in place and respond to input with a distinct pressure point. Frequent writers will also get along well with the keyboard, whereby the somewhat small Enter key takes some getting used to. The arrow keys are also narrower, but the free space around them prevents any mistakes.

Under poor lighting conditions, the two-stage white backlighting makes it easier to read the key labelling.

Touchpad

A ClickPad is available as a mouse replacement for users in the Dell G3 15. It is large enough and its smooth surface allows for easy navigation of the mouse pointer. The mouse buttons, which are positioned in the lower area, trigger with a quiet clicking sound and they offer an even pressure point on both sides.

Screen-bleeding
Screen-bleeding

The Dell G3 15's screen is made up of a 15.6-inch IPS panel and offers a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels and a refresh rate of 144 Hz. The brightness is at a good level with an average of 298 nits and is therefore high enough for second place in our range of tested devices. However, this does not apply to the illumination of the panel, which is very low at 81%. With dark picture contents, light screen bleeding is also noticeable.

According to our measurements, Dell refrains from using PWM, which means that even users with sensitive eyes don't have to worry about problems when using this gaming laptop.

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
8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 4 ms rise
↘ 4 ms fall
The screen shows fast response rates in our tests and should be suited for gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 8 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (24.2 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
14 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 7 ms rise
↘ 7 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 12 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (38.4 ms).

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 not detected

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9658 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 151500) Hz was measured.

The IPS panel of the Dell G3 15 has a very stable viewing angle. Screen content can be viewed from almost any angle without being distorted or displayed with distorted colours.

Performance - Suitable for Full HD gaming

The Dell G3 15 is aimed at gamers and offers the corresponding hardware equipment. Besides the configuration tested here, models with Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1650 Ti and GeForce GTX 1660 Ti are also available. Additionally, an Intel Core i5-10300H is available as an alternative processor. In each variant Full HD gaming should be possible even with slightly higher graphics settings.

Processor

The Intel Core i7-10750H used here is a processor with six cores that can process up to 12 threads simultaneously. The clock rates lie between 2.6 and 5 GHz, whereby the cooling system is largely responsible for how long high clock rates can be maintained.

In the extended test with The Witcher 3 on the graphics setting "Ultra", the Dell G3 15 shows only slight variations in graphics performance over a long period.
