Reviews for the Dell Latitude 3400

Dell Latitude 14 3400 review – a budget business solution
Source: Laptop Media English version
As a low-end business laptop, the Latitude 14 3400 has to be a good allrounder of a device to satisfy the market. We are not saying that it has to rock all categories, it just needs not to suck at them. From our limited time we had with this device, we concluded that Dell has put a lot of effort into this one. However, we feel that it is still not enough.
Single Review, online available, Long, Date: 07/17/2019



Dell has introduced an affordable 14-inches business laptop known as Dell Latitude 3400. The price range of the device makes it the best choice for small SMEs or even multinational corporations to be used by their executives. The overall design of the laptop is not something to boast about as it comes in as a typical 14-inches plastic chassis which feels incredibly sturdy and there isn’t anything fancy about the design on its own. The major drawback of this laptop has to be its display despite having a matte screen with 1080p resolution and an IPS panel, the display just isn’t good enough. The display has a high black level and low maximum brightness which results in weak contrast ratio. The low color space coverages make the device unsuitable for any color critical work. The low level of brightness will also be an issue when the device is to be used outside. Aside from that, color accuracy is extremely bad making the display quite bad even for watching movies.  The device also does not support single-handed lid opening. In terms of its keyboard, Latitude 3400 has included keyboard backlighting which helps distinguish it from other similarly priced laptops in the market. However, the keyboards are not the best choice for a good typing experience as the keys have just too short for travel and feels mushy in comparison to ThinkPad E490 which had both larger and more tactile keys. There is definitely a drawback in terms of typing comfortability and convenience for users with this ZenBook Flip 15.

As far as the port inclusion is considered, Latitude 3400 has all the ports that one would need for general usage, especially for hard working executives. This model incorporates a total of four USB ports, Gigabit Ethernet, a full-sized SD card reader, a Kensington lock slot along with a HDMI port. In addition, there is also a VGA port. The commendable inclusion within this model has to be the USB Type-C port. While the USB Type-C port can act as video output as it supports HDMI and DisplayPort with appropriate adapter, the port also supports USB Power Delivery (PD) which allows charging even without the proprietary charger that comes with the device. Asus ZenBook Flip 15 has been incorporated with the Whiskey Lake processors of Intel and there is also an option of purchasing the device with NVIDIA GeForce MX250 graphics card but for a higher price though. In terms of its battery, the device has two options which includes a 42Wh 3-cell unit and a 56Wh 4-cell unit for users to choose from. The 56Wh has been proven to support 11 hours of web browsing and 10 hours and 45 minutes of video playback after fully charging when tested. However, this does vary depending on the individual and the type of usage as it differs from one person to the other. As for the 42Wh model, it should last lesser than the tested version due to its smaller battery size. While the good and bad do exist, the choice of owning the device always goes to the user’s preference and need.

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

i3-8145U: Whiskey Lake based low power dual-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The two cores are clocked between 2.1 and 3.9 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.
