Reviews for the Dell XPS 13 Plus 9320 4K
The XPS 13 has been a very good subnotebook for years and Dell now offers two versions, which are not only different in terms of CPU selection. How does the new XPS 13 Plus with the 4K panel, frameless touchpad and completely new keyboard including touch bar perform in our review?

We had an honestly different experience using this laptop. It is not often when you find yourself trying to get used to a touchpad, and a function key row. To be frank, neither of the two was completely new, as the function row is kind of reminiscent of the MacBook shenanigans of the last few years. Respectively, the touchpad is a refined version of what Lenovo tried to do with its Yoga 9i (14″). However, to have both of these things together is definitely new. Another thing new to us is the edge-to-edge lattice-less keyboard. It too requires some time of getting used to. And the short key travel is not your best friend, by any means. However, it is pretty okay for typing. With that said, we would prefer a ThinkPad keyboard 10 out of 10 times. We almost forgot to mention the fantastic battery life. Dell has truly tamed the Alder Lake family, as this laptop is capable of delivering more than 20 hours of Web browsing on a single battery charge. At the end of the day, the XPS 13 Plus 9320 is an expensive, yet innovative laptop, which will definitely turn heads.

Use the optimized performance preset, turn down the screen brightness, close unused apps and you can likely push the battery life to a better place. But I don't feel confident that I could pick up this laptop in the morning and work on it all day without charging. It helps that there's an express charging preset for powering up part of the battery quickly. The nearly 4K screen doesn't do the battery any favors, although the fact that it's an OLED panel should help. That's one reason I'm cautious about recommending 4K laptops -- higher-resolution screens are a battery killer. The XPS 13 Plus has a lot of innovative ideas -- some of which are important, while others seem like change for the sake of change. We may even disagree on which is which. If I were working on the next generation of this laptop, I'd keep the design updates but suggest sacrificing a little thickness for a bigger battery so this could be a more travel-ready companion.

Despite my reservations around some of Dell's design choices, the XPS 13 Plus still looks and feels like an upgrade from the standard XPS 13. The large borderless keyboard is a touch-typist's dream, and the Infinity Edge display still looks fantastic.

I’ve enjoyed my time with the XPS 13 Plus so far. Not only is it a solid design with premium build quality and nice looks, it also has an easy keyboard to type on and an intuitive and yet invisible trackpad. And let’s not forget the great-looking OLED screen. All for a reasonable price. It’s not perfect though. I did not care much for that capacitive touch bar, for example, and I also wasn’t a fan of the so-so battery life and the minimal IO. We're getting in-depth on all these aspects in this review.

On a first look, with the premium build, the updated hardware, thermal design, and battery, as well as the improved audio and the multitude of screen options, the 2022 XPS 13 Plus might have what it takes to continue the series’ winning spree over the years. However, Dell decided to experiment with this generation by opting for an atypical keyboard and clickpad design, which could end up being either a success and a unique selling point, or a potential deal-breaker for this XPS 13 generation. Furthermore, they also gimped the connectivity of this series, dumping the card reader and the audio jack, both decisions that affect the laptop’s overall ergonomics in a negative way. I look forward to spending more time with this laptop and gathering my thoughts for a proper review. In the meantime, I’m curious what you guys think about the hardware changes, the OLED screen option, the inputs, and the USB-C-only connectivity of this 2022 Dell XPS 13 Plus 9320 series.
