Reviews for the Dell XPS 14 9440

Dell XPS 14 9440 review – Blazing Performance, Stunning Display, All-Day Battery Life
Source: Laptop Media English
If you are looking for a new powerful and compact machine, the Dell XPS 14 9440 also can offer solid premium build quality, a comfortable keyboard, and outstanding battery life. Of course, this gadget is expensive but that’s kind of expected. In terms of performance, this one is doing a better job than the smaller XPS 13 9340 with the same CPU. That’s normal because the main body is bigger as well as the cooling solution. That’s why the temperatures in long loads are acceptable and the CPU clocks are high, especially for thin 14-incher. In this case, the fans aren’t too loud and the base doesn’t become too hot. The base 1200p IPS display (HPXJN-145WU1) is very good. Calling this unit “basic” or “default” is a disgrace because it boasts a 120Hz refresh rate, a 95% sRGB color coverage, and a very good contrast ratio of 2100:1 which is a rare find when it comes to an IPS display.

2024 Dell XPS 14 Review
Source: Mobile Tech Review English
The Dell XPS 14 (9440) makes a design departure, as do the XPS 13 and 16 for 2024. They all resemble the XPS 13 Plus, a change that perhaps puts form ahead of function. Thanks to our sponsor Trend Micro's Premium Security Suite offers complete device and identity protection for up to 10 devices. The XPS 14 has a 14.5” display with FHD+ and 3.2K OLED options and it sports Intel’s new 14th gen Meteor Lake CPU with an AI co-processor. As ever, this is a CNC aluminum unibody Windows 11 laptop that competes with the 14” Apple MacBook Pro, Razer Blade 14 and Asus ROG Zephyrus G14.

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.
