Dell Latitude 5310 2-in-1 convertible in review: 11-hour long-distance runner

Office in 360 degrees. The manageable office convertible holds a few trump cards: It is quiet, sturdily built, has good input devices, a nice display, an excellent microphone, a fast card reader, and component maintenance is not a foreign concept either. Will you hold all the trump cards with the Latitude 5310?

Dell's Latitude 5000 series is the solid mid-range between the 7000 high end and the 3000 entry level. Nonetheless, the test device is not cheap as a result. It seamlessly joins the upper class of the HP Spectre, the Lenovo Thinkpad X1, and the Samsung Galaxy Book in terms of price.

What does the Latitude 5310 2-in-1 have to offer? Quite a bit and almost no drawbacks as our review will reveal.

Case and connectivity: Hardware upgrades are possible

The light magnesium case is very solid, especially the lid and the hinges are uncommonly rigid. The matte, dull finish does not pick up fingerprints and feels grippy in the hand. There's no rubber coating.

The bottom cover can be easily removed, revealing two RAM slots, the fan, the Wi-Fi module, and the SSD underneath. All of this can be replaced as well as the 60 Wh battery. Dell doesn't use on-board RAM, and one slot is free in our 16 GB test device (single-channel).

The USB Type-C port outputs DisplayPort 1.4 and supports Power Delivery; a corresponding power adapter supplies energy to our test device. Unfortunately, there's only one Type-C port, which is why the simultaneous use of the DisplayPort and the power adapter is not possible.

The card reader supports microSD cards and has very fast read speeds. With the AX201, a modern Wi-Fi 6 chip is on board; its performance is above average in the test but not when receiving.

Dell's standard warranty only covers 12 months, but extensions are available.

Input devices - Stable

The keys offer a firm stroke, a clear pressure point, and a small conical curvature. This results in a quick and quiet typing experience. The four-millimeter spacing and the separated arrow keys make typing fast, accurate, and easy. Moreover, the keyboard backlighting has two stages.

With its two agile buttons, the ClickPad can be used quickly and unerringly. The buttons have a clear travel, a cushioned stroke, and they are quiet, just like the keyboard keys. As is usual with a Precision touchpad, there are multi-touch and multi-finger gestures.

The touch panel is located under a pane that occupies the entire screen up to the edges. However, the display area is smaller; the screen-to-body ratio is 72%. Fingers glide comfortably on the glass, and actions are implemented without delays.

Display

Subpixel grid on the 1920x1080 Chi Mei CMN1382
Subpixel grid on the 1920x1080 Chi Mei CMN1382

Dell uses an IPS panel from Chi Mei with a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels. The brightness of almost 400 cd/m² is impressive. This makes outdoor use possible as long as there is shade to reduce the reflections of the glossy panel. However, the luminance is limited to 327 cd/m² (center of the display) on battery power.

The competition, unanimously equipped with Full HD displays, can do a better job, at least in terms of brightness. PWM is used to regulate the brightness in this panel; it kicks in at brightness levels of 80% and below. Because the frequency is quite high at 2,500 Hz, the majority of users shouldn't have any complaints about this. Furthermore, with a black background and maximum brightness, you can see screen bleeding at the top and bottom edges of the display. However, this is only noticeable with the naked eye when using a black background.

* ... smaller is better

The contrast of 1,126:1 is not bad in principle, but it lags behind the competition in comparison. At least the colors are accurate out of the box and without calibration. Nevertheless, the effort of performing a calibration with the spectrophotometer is worth it. We were able to reduce the Delta E values of the grayscales and colors from 2.4 to 0.7 and 3.3 to 0.7, respectively.

Only 99% of the small sRGB color space is covered, but the competition manages this as well. Therefore, the Latitude is suitable for professional graphic designers and photo editors.

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
24 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 14 ms rise
↘ 10 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 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 49 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (21.3 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
36 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 18 ms rise
↘ 18 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 45 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (33.4 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 detected 2500 Hz ≤ 80 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 2500 Hz (worst case, e.g., utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 80 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 2500 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17560 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The processor, an Intel Core i5-10310U with four cores (Comet Lake), is a typical all-rounder for small and light laptops that are meant to be enduring but also quiet. The clock rate has a wide range from 1.7 to 1.44 GHz, whereby the latter can only be achieved with a single core.

The processor is supported by 16 GB of RAM in single-channel mode (one module) and a 512 GB SSD from SK hynix.

LatencyMon showed us noticeable DPC latencies. Real-time video-editing is not possible based on the available drivers.

Processor

The Core i5-10310U doesn't perform as fast as it could in the Dell laptop. In return, however, it runs consistently, and the score doesn't drop even after 10 passes. The base clock speed is not undercut.

The comparison with other Intel systems using the same or the subsequent higher CPU generation (Tiger Lake) shows that the Latitude is moderately powerful. The chip can't fully exploit its performance in the 5310, probably in favor of a cool surface and a low noise level.

Storage

The SK hynix is inferior to the Samsung SSDs of the competition in all disciplines. This does not have an impact on the system's smooth operation, but our benchmarks show slowness in a variety of areas such as sequential reading.

Graphics card

The integrated UHD Graphics 620 is Intel's own graphics processor for the simplest hardware support. In this way, the iGPU helps to decode videos like when watching HD or 4K material on YouTube, for example.

The UHD 620 isn't really intended for gaming, unless it's games from the Microsoft Store. The red areas of our small gaming round show that there's not much to get even with older titles. Due to the single-channel memory, the UHD 620 performs a bit worse than usual.

Emissions: Latitude quiet as a whisper

Noise emissions

The Latitude has a fan? You might certainly find yourself asking this question when using the laptop in the office for web browsing and Word documents, because the small fan hardly ever kicks in. The chances of having a whisper-quiet operation are very good with the 5530. However, we did hear it during continuous load, first at 30 dB(A), then at 36 dB(A) in the stress test.

Temperature

The temperatures rise considerably, up to almost 45 °C (~113 °F) under constant load (at certain points). However, even in this state, the palm rest and the keyboard's center area remain reasonably lukewarm at 25 to 35 °C (~77 to ~95 °F).

Speakers

The small speakers are located on the right and left under the palm rest, and sound bounces off the table top. The sound has balanced mids, but bass is not present in any way.

The good microphone pickup with the dual-array mic next to the webcam is praiseworthy. This is an excellent quality for video conferencing.

Energy and battery life: 11-hour runtime

Energy consumption

Compared to the laptop's class, power consumption is very low at three to almost seven watts. Under load, it briefly increases to 55 watts and then remains at around 49 watts in the stress test. Moderate load manifests itself in 42 watts. The competition is often power-hungrier in this regard, especially during maximum load. It's shown here that Dell has reduced the short-term maximum TDP (PL1).

Verdict

Dell Latitude 5310-23VP6
Dell Latitude 5310-23VP6

The Dell Latitude 5310 is a 13-inch whisper-quiet 2-in-1 work device that doesn't impress with performance but combines numerous ergonomic and design advantages. While the Core i5-10310U doesn't fully develop its performance, the user benefits from an operation that is mostly whisper-quiet, a long runtime (11 hours in our Wi-Fi test), and moderate heat generation.

The touchscreen is appropriate for its purpose in terms of brightness and contrast, but it's not a highlight. Color reproduction and color-space coverage are better aspects, and the 13-incher beats the competition here.

You have to deal with the glossy touchscreen if you want the 2-in-1 version. Otherwise, there is an alternative Latitude 5310 in clamshell format. The looks and ports are almost identical.

The maintenance options are a success in any case. All components, except for the SoC, can be easily removed and replaced, including the battery. Dell has a service manual online for this.

Price and availability

The Dell Latitude 5310-23VP6 variant that we reviewed is currently available for a good 1,400 Euros (~$1,722) at notebooksbilliger.

The less expensive entry-level model with 256 GB of storage and 8 GB of RAM costs considerably less, just under 1,200 Euros (~$1,476).
