Dell Inspiron 15 5515 laptop review: Enduring office notebook with untapped potential

Solid workhorse. Dell's Inspiron 15 5515 is an office notebook that comes in a simple and sleek design, accompanied by up to 4.3 GHz of fast AMD Ryzen 7 power and a rather large battery. In this review, we put the laptop through its paces.

The Dell Inspiron 15 5515 in the H8P8F configuration is an affordable office notebook grounded in AMD's Ryzen 7 5700U. The manufacturer combines the octa-core CPU with 8 GB of RAM, does without a dedicated graphics solution, and installs everything in a plainly designed, 15.6-inch clamshell case.

Our review reveals how well the Dell Inspiron 15 5515-H8P8F performs under testing and in practice. The laptop has to compete against two rivals with the same CPU: the Acer Aspire 5 A515 and the Asus VivoBook 15 with an OLED panel. Several other rivals also join the fray, most of which have slightly weaker processors and should not be able to keep up with our review candidate. In theory, at least.

Case & Equipment: Plain Dell notebook made of aluminum

The Dell Inspiron 15 5515 comes in an aluminum shell, simply designed and in the Platinum Silver color. The choice of materials gives the device a high-quality feel, reflecting an equally professional manufacturing process. The hinges holding the monitor are quite taut, but still allow for one-handed opening. The base lifts slightly when opened.

In terms of dimensions, the device is ahead in the class of 15.6-inch contenders, so it is one of the most compact notebooks. It also leads in terms of weight, recording around 1.6 kg. Together with the power adapter, it weighs just under 2 kg. Not so heavy after all. 

All ports are distributed on the left and right side of the case. An SD card reader is also among them, but lags behind the majority of the comparison field in terms of data rates. WLAN speeds, on the other hand, are decent. Unfortunately, we cannot say the same of the HD camera (1280x720 at 30 fps) with its dual-array microphones, which captures solid images, but not particularly accurately with an average DeltaE of just over 25 colors.

After unscrewing the baseplate, you can change the battery, clean the fan and increase the RAM thanks to a free slot.

Input Devices: The large keyboard impresses

Dell utilitzes nearly all of the 15.6-inch device's dimensions, installing a keyboard and numpad which correspond to the width of the entire case - apart from the near 1.5 cm thin edges on the left and right. This allows for roughly 1.7x1.7 cm keys that are easy to type on. Noise development remains within limits.

Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of the touchpad, which has been placed slightly off-center under the space bar. The two click surfaces on the lower edge, which are not haptically separated from each other, produce clearly audible feedback. Otherwise operation is impeccable: fingers glide well over the smooth and haptically pleasant surface.

Dell places the usual additional functions for controlling the three-stage (bright, dark, off) keyboard backlight, media playback and more on the F1 to F12 keys. A fingerprint sensor is also located on the top right.

Display: Neither bright nor color accurate

Light clouding and stronger IPS glow

The 15.6-inch display with an aspect ratio of 16:9 has a Full HD resolution (1920x1080). It is matte and thus basically suitable for outdoor use. Unfortunately, the rather negligible brightness values of approximately 240 cd/m² throws a spanner in the works. So there are more suitable devices for regular outdoor use. We also noticed PWM flickering at 1250 Hz at a set brightness of 90% and below, which shouldn't cause any problems in everyday use.

Otherwise the performance of the IPS panel from BOE is average in most of the measured values, sometimes even better than the comparison models - apart from Asus' OLED model, of course. However, the weak color space coverage and the rather large deviation in color reproduction are clear points of criticism. The display is therefore unsuitable for professional graphics and video editing - this also applies to the rest of the hardware...

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
31 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 16 ms rise
↘ 15 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.4 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 79 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (23 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey

In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.25 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 66 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (36.3 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 detected 1250 Hz ≤ 90 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 1250 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 90 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 1250 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 19737 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Performance: The Dell Inspiron 15 5515 wastes potential with the AMD Ryzen 7

The present review sample is equipped with the AMD Ryzen 7 5700U with eight cores, the integrated AMD Radeon RX Vega 8 iGPU, 8 GB DDR4 RAM (single-channel) and a 512 GB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD.

Alternatively, Dell also offers the Inspiron 15 with the same CPU with 16 GB of RAM and 1 TB of storage. The model series is also available with a number of other processors from AMD and Intel.

Testing Conditions

Dell provides the AMD CPU with 27 watts PL2 (Short Burst) and 11 watts PL1 (Sustained). The Dell software does not offer different performance modes. Testing was mostly carried out under the Windows performance modes "Best Performance" and "Standard" in the AMD Radeon software.  

Processor

The AMD Ryzen 7 5700U octa-core CPU consists of eight Zen 2 cores, so not of the new Zen 3 architecture. The cores have a maximum clock of 4.3 GHz and a base clock of 1.8 GHz. The processor, launched in early 2021, offers 8 MB of level 3 cache.

The CPU starts very strongly in the Cinebench R15 endurance test, but then falls behind the performance of the competing models with the same CPU and even below the Huawei MateBook D 15 with the weaker AMD Ryzen 5 5500U. On the other hand, it clearly outperforms the other two Dell models.

This also reflected in the CPU's performance rating, since it has to concede defeat to the aforementioned competitors and usually ranks below the CPU average. At least in the Cinebench multi-core benchmarks, the Dell Inspiron 15 5515-H8P8F performs very well.

System Performance

The fact that the Dell Inspiron 15 5515 does not exhaust the potential of its CPU can also be seen in the system benchmarks. Coupled with a manageable amount of RAM as well as a rather slow SSD, the result is only a midfield ranking in the end - and again behind the aforementioned contenders with 5700U/5500U CPUs from AMD. This is not even enough for a consistent ranking above the office average. Nevertheless, solid work with common applications is possible for this device class, such as office applications and the like.

Storage Devices

As already briefly mentioned, Dell did not do itself any favors by choosing the SSD from Toshiba, which reveals significant weaknesses in performance values and often lags behind the field - especially in the endurance test (i.e. Sustained Performance Read).
