Fujitsu LifeBook U9311X in review - 1 kg business convertible with LTE

Now with Tiger Lake and Thunderbolt 4. Fujitsu now equips its light business convertible with the latest Tiger Lake processors and Thunderbolt 4, but retains the familiar case and 16:9 screen. Despite the updated hardware, the Lifebook U9311X now feels a bit dusty.

Case, equipment and input devices

We already know the magnesium case from the two predecessor models, the U9310X and U939X. It is still an extremely mobile business convertible with a weight of just over 1 kg (~2.2 pounds) including the stylus, but you can see the age of the case especially in the wide screen edges and the (by today's standards) tiny touchpad. The U9311X is also available in black if the red casing of our test device is too conspicuous.

An advantage is the extensive connectivity including a full SD card reader and even a Gigabit Ethernet port. Thunderbolt 4 is now also supported with the Tiger Lake update. Wi-Fi 6 with high transfer rates is also supported and an LTE module is also installed, but more modern options (Wi-Fi 6E and 5G) are already available here as well, which could be expected for a price of 2,300 Euros (~$2,716).

The keyboard is illuminated, but it still remains a small weak point. The keys are quite small and the pressure point is quite spongy. Other business convertibles from HP or Lenovo simply offer better inputs here.

Minimal halos in the lower corners

There are also no changes in the 13.3-inch IPS touchscreen with 1080p resolution (16:9) and anti-reflective surface, as Fujitsu relies on the same panel as last year. The subjective picture impression is still decent, but there is still PWM as soon as the brightness is at 30% or less. Halos are not a big problem, there is only a slight brightening in the lower two corners.

The sRGB color space is completely covered and after a calibration, the panel is also suitable for editing pictures/videos. However, the panel is already adjusted properly at the factory and the additional calibration is not necessary for productive tasks. The brightness is around 350 cd/m² and the contrast ratio is also good. Nevertheless, you have to watch out for reflections outdoors, otherwise comfortable use is no longer possible. The viewing angle stability of the IPS panel is very good.

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
37.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 18.8 ms rise
↘ 18.8 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. » 94 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (23.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
61.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 32 ms rise
↘ 29.2 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. » 96 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (37.6 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 211.9 Hz ≤ 30 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 211.9 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 30 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 211.9 Hz is relatively low, so sensitive users will likely notice flickering and experience eyestrain at the stated brightness setting and below.

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 21033 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Performance, emissions and battery life

Fujitsu uses the fast Core i7-1185G7 from Intel (Tiger Lake), which also supports vPro. Theoretically, this processor manages very high clock rates (up to 4.8 GHz), but this potential is hardly utilized. The processor is allowed to consume 40 watts for a short time, but it is only 22 watts after a few seconds. Thus, there is no real advantage over the previous processors here. The big advantage is the improved integrated graphics card, which can now be used for a bit of gaming. However, the performance remains stable in battery mode in contrast to the predecessor.

Overall, the system performance is very good, also thanks to the fast PCIe-SSD (3.0 x4), and the device implements inputs without noticeable delays. The test device also does not show any restrictions in our standardized latency test.

There are no restrictions in terms of temperatures, but the fan starts quite quickly during load and is also clearly audible, especially during high CPU load, but it usually remains deactivated in everyday office use. There are no annoying electronic noises like coil whine. The speakers are quite weak and many business devices now offer much more.

The battery life in the practical WLAN test is 7-8 hours depending on the brightness, which is slightly worse than the predecessor. The reason for this is probably the performance in battery mode, which is no longer reduced in the U9311X.

Verdict - Fujitsu's convertible needs a redesign

In review: Fujitsu Lifebook U9311X. Test device provided by Fujitsu Germany.
In review: Fujitsu Lifebook U9311X. Test device provided by Fujitsu Germany.

The leap from last year's Lifebook U9310X (or the older U939X) to the current Lifebook U9311X is quite small. Fujitsu does use current Tiger Lake processors from Intel and the two USB-C ports now support Thunderbolt 4, but everything else remains the same.

The magnesium case is still very light and offers extensive ports, but the 16:9 screen including the wide screen borders as well as the small touchpad show the case's age. The keyboard also has to admit defeat to other business devices.

The Lifebook U9311X is still a compact mobile companion including LTE, but you slowly notice the age of the design. We would like to see a 16:10 screen and better input devices for the next generation.

All in all, the U9311X naturally remains an extremely mobile companion with good connectivity. Especially in the area of display and input devices, competitors like the Lenovo ThinkPad X13 Yoga G2 or the EliteBook Dragonfly Max from HP often offer more. Furthermore, the performance yield is a bit disappointing and the full potential of the i7-1185G7 cannot be exploited at all; the cheaper version with the Core i5 should not have any major drawbacks in practice.

Price and availability

Our test configuration is available at Cyberport for €2,330 (~$2,735) or €2,280 (~$2,675) for the black model. A cheaper configuration with a Core i5 processor and a 512 GB SSD is available for €1,780 (~$2,090).

I grew up with modern consumer electronics and my first computer was a Commodore C64, which encouraged my interest in building my own systems. I started working as a review editor for Notebookcheck during my dual studies at Siemens. Currently, I am mainly responsible for dealing with business laptops and mobile workstations. It’s a great experience to be able to review the latest devices and technologies and then compare them with each other.
