Dell Latitude 15 5510 laptop review: Office notebook with prepared WWAN

M.2 or SATA drive. By using an Intel Core i5 of the Comet Lake generation, Dell places the Latitude 15 5510 in the mid price range around 1,100 Euros (~$1,290). Business features, such as a smart card reader, are retained, and everything is already prepared for WWAN, which can be installed subsequently. Our test report explains what performance buyers can expect in everyday use.

Dell Latitude 15 5510-D90XK

The devices of the Latitude series are designed for office users and offer more or less extended business features depending on the price range. Hence, the rather simply equipped Dell Latitude 3400 costs around 600 Euros (~$700), whereas a Dell Latitude 5500 can cost more than 2,000 Euros (~$2,343).

The Dell Latitude 15 5510 is placed in the mid price range and costs 1,100 Euros (~$1,290). It offers an Intel Core i5-10310U with an integrated UHD Graphics 620 as well as 16 GB of RAM and a 512 GB SSD. With these specs, the Dell laptop has to compete against the rivals listed below. Below each segment, additional laptops can be added to the comparison.

Case - Robust office laptop made of plastic

Dell manufactures the Latitude 15 5510 from durable plastic. The processing is clean and offers a comfortable feel. We couldn't find any uneven gaps or similar issues. The screen is held firmly in its adjusted position by two hinges and can be folded back up to 180 degrees.

The Dell notebook is slightly thicker than the other laptops in our comparison. In terms of the remaining dimensions, it ranks second.

Connectivity - Fast microSD card reader and good maintenance possibilities

The Dell Latitude 15 5510 offers many connections. There is an unoccupied bay for a WWAN module just behind the SIM bay and the USB type C port can be used to charge the device. The latter also offers DisplayPort functionality. There is a mains connector as well but since the shipped AC adapter has a USB type C connection, it is only an additional option for users who already own a compatible power supply.

Input devices - Dell laptop with point stick

Keyboard

The keyboard of the Latitude 15 5510 offers a two-step background lighting and is protected against splash water. When typing, the relatively small keys provide a good pressure point and give the fingers a firm grip. The Enter key is a bit small, but the separately realized keys Pos1, End, Del and Ins are on the plus side. 

Touchpad

Users of the Latitude 15 5510 can choose between a touchpad with separate mouse buttons and a point stick with its own mouse buttons. All mouse buttons provide a distinct pressure point and offer a comparatively deep hub. Both the pad and the stick are well suited for mouse pointer navigation.

The Latitude 15 sports a 15.6-inch Full HD IPS panel with 1920x1080 pixels. The brightness is only sufficient for indoor use with its 258 nits and illumination is very low at 74%.

From a brightness value below 90%, the display also flickers at a frequency of 1,000 Hz, which is due to PWM. This could cause problems for users with sensitive eyes.

Dell Latitude 15 5510 outdoors

Outdoors, the Latitude 15 5510 should only be used in shaded places with a straight view of the screen. In strong light or less straight viewing angles, the brightness of the screen is too low to display image contents clearly.

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
34 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 18 ms rise
↘ 16 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 88 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (24.3 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
44 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 23 ms rise
↘ 21 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 64 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (38.6 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 1000 Hz ≤ 90 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 1000 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 1000 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9596 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

The IPS panel of the Dell Latitude 15 5510 has stable viewing angles. Image contents can be viewed from almost every angle without being distorted or displayed with falsified colors.

Processor

Our SKU is equipped with an Intel Core i5-10310U. It has four cores and clocks between 1.7 and 4.4 GHz. However, the cooling system is largely responsible for how long high frequencies can be maintained. Our Cinebench R15 loop shows that the performance of the Latitude 15 5510 slowly drops with increasing duration.

In the individual tests, the Core i5-10310U can hold its own against laptops with a Core i7-10510U, but it has to admit defeat against AMD's Ryzen processors, especially in terms of multi-core performance.

Graphics Card

An Intel UHD Graphics 620 is responsible for displaying contents on the screen of the Dell Latitude 15 5510. This GPU only qualifies for simple graphical applications and profits from RAM in dual-channel mode. Our test unit only offers single-channel RAM, which is why there is potential for improvement. 

Results in the 3DMark benchmarks are at the lower end of our test field and only the Acer TravelMate P215-52 has an even lower score in 3DMark 11. The performance of more graphics cards can be compared in our GPU benchmark list.

Gaming Performance

The integrated Intel UHD Graphics 620 is only suitable for very old or very simple games. Therefore, results in our test games are modest. Even with older and less demanding games such as Dota 2 Reborn, users have to rely on low resolutions and details to achieve smooth frame rates. 

To see how the GPU performs in other games, check out our GPU gaming list.

Temperature

Stress test
Stress test

Our measurements attest the Latitude 15 surface temperatures of up to 46.2 °C under load. But this value is only reached directly above the air outlet, which is why the Dell laptop can be nevertheless placed on the lap without problems.

During our stress test for about an hour, temperatures in the case reach up to 76 °C. Right from the start, clock rates drop down to around 700 MHz and therefore clearly below the base clock rate. Until the end of the test, clock rates rise again and stabilize at around 1.5 GHz, which is also below the base clock of 1.7 GHz. Hence, users must expect system performance to drop significantly under longer loads.

In review: Dell Latitude 15 5510. Test unit provided by:

The Dell Latitude 15 5510 is a solid office laptop with many optional features. This includes a smart card reader as well as the free space for a WWAN module with already prepared antennas. The input devices are suitable for writing longer texts, at least after some getting used to. For mobile users, the long battery life could be an argument, since it is very good with 10.5 hours in our Wi-Fi test. 

With the Latitude 15 5510, Dell offers a solid office notebook with many business features.

Also on the plus side are the fast WLAN transfer rates and the fast microSD card reader. However, users who want to work outdoors are most probably going to be disappointed by the low brightness. Basically, the Latitude 15 also offers good maintenance possibilities, which means that the RAM can be extended and the mass storage device can be exchanged. The latter can be done via M.2 bay or SATA port, but unfortunately, these ports can't be used at the same time.

I made my first IT walking attempts on a 386 with 4 MB of RAM. After that followed various PCs and notebooks, which I looked after and repaired in my circle of friends and acquaintances. After an apprenticeship as a telecommunications systems engineer and several years of professional experience, I graduated with a bachelor's degree in industrial engineering. Today I live out my fascination for IT, technology and mobile devices by writing test reports. In my free time I like to devote myself to vegan cooking and spend time with my family, which includes a whole range of animal roommates.

Because of my interest in computer games I started studying computer science, became a psychologist, but stayed true to the games and the hardware. For example during my year abroad in London as a games tester at Sega. In my spare time I find a balance between PC games and sports (meanwhile mainly indoor soccer and running after my toddler), playing guitar and building bamboo bikes (well, so far only one under guidance).
