Reviews for the Dell XPS 14 2024 OLED

86.3% Dell XPS 14 2024 review - The multimedia laptop with the slowest RTX 4050 Laptop in the world | Notebookcheck
Dell has presented the XPS 14, a new multimedia laptop of which we have tested the high-end variant with an OLED panel and the GeForce RTX 4050 Laptop. At almost US$3,000, the device costs an arm and a leg and especially when it comes to performance, you shouldn't set your expectations too high.
80% Dell XPS 14 review: A slick design is slowed by an underperforming display
Source: Laptop Mag English
The Dell XPS 14 has much to offer, from its incredible performance and battery life to its stellar design and bright display. However, I can’t ignore how disappointed I am by the display’s color. I’ve seen budget Chromebooks that seem to be more colorful than the XPS 14. However, if you prioritize portability and a display bright enough to withstand the outdoors, then the XPS 14 might be right for you.

80% Dell XPS 14 OLED review: A vibrant and gorgeous display
Source: Laptop Media English
The XPS 14 OLED has a modern sci-fi design, vibrant display, admirable battery life, and powerful performance for productivity and gaming tasks. It’s also great at photo and video editing, too. If you need one laptop to handle all your computing needs, you could do far worse than the XPS 14 OLED. On the other hand, it does suffer from a subpar webcam, a lack of USB-A ports, a soft keyboard, and a dim display. Many of these issues can be addressed using an external webcam, laptop docking station, or USB adapter. For some, the soft keyboard may even be a plus. If you want the perfect laptop that doesn’t require any accessories to excel in your work and home lives, the XPS 14 is perhaps not the laptop for you.

80% Dell XPS 14 review: What the XPS Plus should have been
Source: Tom's Guide English
The Dell XPS 14 and the rest of 2024’s XPS laptops might not go over well with some folks due to their unconventional (and controversial) design. I can sympathize since I’m not enamored with the capacitive function row and invisible touchpad. However, I think this laptop’s strengths make up for its weaknesses. Contentious design aside, the XPS 14’s performance makes it a great Windows laptop for everyday work and even modern gaming (with the right configuration). The bright and colorful 14.5-inch OLED InfinityEdge is worth the cost of upgrading because makes everything look amazing and I had a fun time typing on the compact keyboard. And while I question the lack of physical function keys and touchpad, I still love the overall svelte profile. If you don’t mind the unorthodox design, the Dell XPS 14 is one of the best Windows laptops you can buy.

90% Dell XPS 14 9440 review: a stunning laptop that gives Windows users a real MacBook competitor
Source: Techradar English
The Dell XPS 14 is a fantastic new entry into the storied XPS lineup, and it gives the MacBook Pro 14-inch its strongest competition yet thanks to its gorgeous OLED display, powerful processor and GPU, and svelte design. The XPS 14 isn't cheap, however, and there are some design quirks that many might not like. But overall, there are few Windows laptops that can compete right now.

Dell XPS 14 hands-on review: What the XPS Plus should have been
Source: Tom's Guide English
I’ll share my verdict on the Dell XPS 14 once I’ve tested the consumer model. But based on my time with this enterprise version, I can tell this will be one of my favorite laptops of the year. I’m not a fan of certain aspects, such as the capacitive function row and lipless lid. But the XPS 14's gorgeous OLED display, svelte design, portability and RTX-powered gaming performance more than outweigh the negatives. Starting at $1,699, it’s also reasonably priced for what it offers.

70% Dell XPS 14 review: getting past the red flags
Source: Digital Trends English
I’ve been wanting Dell to make a laptop like the XPS 14 with discrete graphics for a long time. And in a lot of ways, the XPS 14 doesn’t disappoint. The performance is quite good, the screen is fantastic, and the laptop itself is beautiful. But is it a true MacBook Pro alternative? It certainly aims to be, including in its pricing. It’s hard to get a true apples-to-apples configuration, but since the MacBook Pro’s starting model come with its mini-LED display, the XPS 14 actually ends up being more expensive in certain configurations. There’s a lot more flexibility in how you can configure the XPS 14, but if you want both the OLED panel and the RTX 4050, you’re looking at a starting price of $2,400, which is actually $300 more than a similarly-configured M3 MacBook Pro.

First Impressions: Dell XPS 14 (2024)
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The redesign of the standard Dell XPS 13 did not go well, marking a huge fall from grace. However, the XPS 13 Plus was a silver lining, albeit an expensive one. The new XPS range gains that pricey style across its 13-inch, 14-inch and 16-inch models and it’s the middle child that looks the most interesting. The Dell XPS 14 is looking like a promising contender for one of the laptops of 2024 but a high starting price could be the key factor that holds it back.

Dell XPS 13, 14 and 16 hands-on at CES 2024

Dell is bringing the bold design of last year's XPS 13 Plus to the rest of the XPS lineup ahead of CES 2024 in Las Vegas — and now that includes new 14-inch and 16-inch models. The "Plus" name is also gone entirely: the new models are simply called the XPS 13, 14 and 16. They all sport the defining featured of the XPS 13 Plus: A seamless glass wrist rest, which hides an invisible haptic touchpad right in the middle; touch sensitive function buttons above the keyboard; and large key caps for more comfortable typing. And notably, the larger two models fix some of my biggest issues with the XPS 13 Plus.

Hands on: Dell XPS 14: a well-balanced thin and light Ultrabook
Source: Techradar English
Overall I'm impressed with what Dell is offering this year, as it seems that its refresh has addressed most of the issues we've found in previous iterations of the Dell XPS line. The only exceptions are the touchpad and function taskbar, which are both invisible with no buttons or ridges. The aesthetics are gorgeous and distinctive as befitting the series, with a great keyboard and incredibly vibrant display. Coupled with a revamped webcam and ventilation system, it finally feels every bit one of the best ultrabooks that it was meant to be. There are also the upgraded specs, including a CPU from the Meteor Lake line, that should guarantee some excellent performance once it can be properly benchmarked. Hopefully, the Dell XPS 14 will finally surpass the previous models with these enhancements. And maybe someday the non-tactile function key touch bar will be permanently retired.

14.50":

14 inch display size represents a middle ground between the small subnotebook formats and the screens of the standard 15 inch laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, provides good resolutions with usable detail sizes, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact. 

In the past, 14-inch devices were very rare, but now they are the standard for laptops after the 15-inchers.
