Dell Inspiron 15 3505 in review: Quiet, affordable office laptop

Home office. The Inspiron 15 3505 shines with low noise levels, two drive slots, and a moderate price. The installed Ryzen 5 APU does not reach its full performance potential. The battery life is poor.

The Dell Inspiron 15 3505 is a simple office laptop that comes in the 15.6-inch form factor. Today's unit is the physically identical sister model of the Inspiron 15 3501, which we have already tested. In this case, our 3505 test device is powered by a Ryzen 5 APU and starts from around 450 USD. Its competitors include devices such as the Acer Extensa 15, HP 255 G7, Fujitsu Lifebook A3510, and the Lenovo Ideapad 3 15ALC6.

Case & Connectivity - No USB-C for the Dell System

Dell uses a slim, matte black chassis with roughened plastic surfaces. There are no deficiencies in terms of the build quality. However, there is room for improvent regarding the rigidity and robustness: The base unit and the lid are overly susceptible to twisting from the corners and the chassis yields under pressure. The battery is fixed. The components are accessible after removing the bottom plate.

Although the Dell system comes with three USB-A ports (2x USB 3.2 gen 1, 1x USB 2.0), there is no USB type-C port. It is possible to connect an external monitor via HDMI. The SD card reader (reference card: AV PRO SD 128 GB V60) is one of the slower models.

Even though the recorded Wi-Fi transfer speeds are more than acceptable under ideal conditions (no other Wi-Fi devices in proximity, low distance between the laptop and server), they are slow compared to more modern solutions. The reason is not hard to identify: The installed Wi-Fi module (Realtek 8821CE) only supports transfer rates of up to 433 Mb/s.

Input Devices - 3505 with Optional Backlit Keyboard

The flat, roughened keys of the non-backlit chiclet keyboard offer shallow travel and a distinct actuation point. While the feedback is decent overall, it could have been slightly more crisp. The keyboard slightly yields while typing - this effect is more pronounced in the center than towards the edges. Overall, Dell has delivered a keyboard that is suitable for day-to-day use.

A multitouch ClickPad (~10.5 x 8 cm / 4.13 x 3.15 in) with a smooth surface and good gliding properties serves as the mouse replacement. It responds to inputs all the way into the corners. The pad offers shallow travel and a distinct actuation point.

While the contrast (940:1) of the matte 15.6-inch display (1920 x 1080 pixels) is still okay, the brightness (231.4 cd/m²) is too low. We consider values above 1000:1 and 300 cd/m², respectively, good. We did not detect PWM flickering.

* ... smaller is better

The color accuracy of the screen is very good ex-factory with the colors only slightly deviating from their ideal values. This is not visible to the naked eye. We were able to improve the accuracy slightly by calibrating the display. The display does not suffer from a blue tint. The color spaces AdobeRGB (42 %), sRGB (60 %), and DCI-P3 (40 %) are not fully covered.

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
28 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 16 ms rise
↘ 12 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 62 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (23.3 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
36 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 16 ms rise
↘ 20 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.692 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 36 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (36.8 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: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 21819 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The IPS panel has good viewing angles and can be read from any position. The screen content also remains discernible outdoors, provided the sun does not shine too brightly.

Performance - Ryzen 5 APU Does not Reach its Full Potential

With the Inspiron 15 3505, Dell has created a 15.6-inch office laptop with enough power for office and web use.

Test Conditions

The manufacturer does not provide the Inspiron with any power profiles or presets. Instead, we used the Windows default profile "maximum performance". The power limits of the CPU are 25 watts (PL1) and 30 watts (PL2).

Processor

The CPU of the Ryzen 5 3450U APU consists of a quad-core processor with a base clock of 2.1 GHz. Via Turbo, it is able to increase its clock speed to up to 3.5 GHz. Simultaneous multithreading (allows once core to process two threads) is also supported.

During Cinebench R15 multi core, the CPU runs at 3 to 3.1 GHz for a short time. The CPU clock subsequently drops to the 2.8-to-2.9-GHz range. The CPU clock during the single thread benchmark sits at 1.5 to 3.5 GHz. In battery mode, the CPU reaches clock speeds of 2.4 to 3.1 GHz (multi thread) and 1.4 to 2.4 GHz (single thread).

We run Cinebench's R15 multi core benchmark in a loop for at least 30 minutes in order to determine whether the CPU turbo is permanently active while on mains. The turbo is only active for 2 to 3 minutes. Afterwards, the CPU runs at speeds close to the base clock.

System Performance

The system is smooth and responsive. We did not encounter any issues. The integrated APU offers sufficient performance for office and web use. The system also produces good PCMark results. The installed DDR4-3200 RAM runs at 2400 MHz ("DDR4-2400"), since the APU does not support higher memory frequencies. Thus, the memory transfer rates fall behind those of comparable laptops such as the Fujitsu Lifebook A3510.

Furthermore, Dell leaves some compute performance on the table due to the RAM only running in single-channel mode. Dual-channel mode can be enabled by installing a secondary memory module.

The RAM runs in single-channel mode.
The RAM runs in single-channel mode.
