HP Dragonfly Folio 13.5 G3 convertible review: No more Snapdragon or Windows on ARM

Trading Qualcomm for Intel. The 2022 Dragonfly Folio G3 directly addresses some key limitations of the ARM-based Elitebook Folio G2 for a much improved user experience. It's still a bit big, however, and it doesn't have as many ports as we would like.

Not to be confused with the clamshell Dragonfly G3, the Dragonfly Folio G3 is the 2-in-1 version with its own unique design and features. It's a very different subnotebook in many respects, but it targets the same market of office and executive business users. The Dragonfly Folio G3 directly replaces last year's EliteBook Folio G2.

Our review unit is a middle SKU with the 12th gen Core i7-1265U CPU and 400-nit glossy touchscreen for approximately $3900 USD. Other options exist with WAN, various RAM/SSD sizes, and the lesser Core i5-1235U, i5-1245U, or i7-1255U CPU, but the 3:2 1920 x 1280 native resolution remains constant across the lineup.

Competitors in this space include other 13-inch business-centric solutions like the MSI Summit E13 Flip, Dell Latitude 7330 2-in-1Lenovo ThinkPad L13 Yoga Gen 2, or the Microsoft Surface Pro series.

Case — Metal With Faux Leather

The chassis is an evolution of the original 2020 Dragonfly Folio G1 and the 2021 EliteBook Folio G2. It's most notable feature is the faux leather outer lid that partially wraps around the back of the base. The material is easier to grip than metal for tablet mode and it reduces visible fingerprints. It also adds a sense of "timelessness" to the overall visual design as opposed to the typical plastic or aluminum alloy solutions.

Chassis rigidity is just as good as last year's model since our 2022 version utilizes similar materials. HP's goal this time around was to improve serviceability and performance without sacrificing what makes the Dragonfly Folio series visually unique. Even so, the base of the system still exhibits slightly more flexing than on a Spectre 13.5 or Elitebook x360 1040 and so there is still room for improvement.

The top and bottom bezels are thicker than on most other laptops since they must support an uncommon 2-in-1 faux leather design and a large 8 MP webcam sensor. Even the more powerful Framework Laptop, for example, is slightly thinner, smaller, and lighter than the Dragonfly Folio G3. It's not heavy or large by any means, but The Dragonfly Folio G3 is certainly not the thinnest or lightest in its size class.

Connectivity — USB-C Only

The system integrates just two USB-C 4.0 ports each compatible with Thunderbolt 4 accessories and monitors. Most other business subnotebooks like the Dragonfly G3 or Latitude 7330 are able to integrate a wider variety of ports to reduce the reliance on docking stations or dongles.

Both USB-C ports are along the left edge with none on the right in contrast to the Razer Book which has one USB-C port on each side. The latter is advantageous as it allows charging from either side of the laptop whereas charging must be done on the left side of the Dragonfly Folio G3.

Communication

An Intel AX211 comes standard for Bluetooth 5.3 and Wi-Fi E connectivity. Transfer rates are both fast and steady and with no issues when paired to our 6 GHz router.

5G WAN is optional and the M.2 WAN module is easily removable. There is no eSIM support, however, and so owners would have to supply their own Nano-SIM cards.

Webcam — 8 MP!

The Dragonfly Folio G3 is one the first laptops to ship with an 8 MP webcam whereas other major makers are still utilizing 2 MP or even 1 MP sensors. Video recording of up to 1836p is supported as well. Image quality is one of the sharpest of any laptop as a result, but there are a few limitations. Firstly, video recording at 60 FPS is not supported with the default camera app despite the high MP count. Secondly, colors and usability in low-light conditions don't appear to be any better than most other laptops. And lastly, any movement appears very blurry likely due in part to the slow black-white response times of the display. It's an excellent webcam if under brightly lit conditions with minimal movement involved, but there's certainly still room for improvement.

An IR sensor and a digital webcam shutter are present. Activating the digital webcam shutter does not physically cover up the lens.

Maintenance

Unlike most other laptop makers, HP uploads official disassembly videos of many of its models including the Dragonfly Folio G3. We highly recommend checking out the video if you are interested in servicing the laptop yourself or seeing exactly what's inside and what can or cannot be upgraded. The manufacturer has made servicing significantly easier when compared to the older 2020 or 2021 models.

Removing the bottom panel requires a few more additional steps when compared to most other laptops due to the faux leather cover. Firstly, two plugs must be removed from the rear corners to expose two Philips screws underneath. Then, the faux leather can be carefully detached from the bottom base to expose additional Torx screws. Once inside, users will only see one M.2 2280 PCIe4 x4 slot for storage and one M.2 expansion slot for WAN. The RAM and WLAN modules are soldered.

Accessories and Warranty

The retail box includes an active pen that attaches magnetically to the right edge of the laptop. We appreciate that the pen comes standard considering that they are more often than not costly extras.

A one-year limited manufacturer warranty comes standard in the US which is disappointing considering that most high-end EliteBook models come with a base three-year warranty instead.

Input Devices — Like An EliteBook

Keyboard

Keyboard layout is identical to the Dragonfly G3 for a similar typing experience. HP Spectre and EliteBook keyboards tend to have crisper feedback to avoid the usual spongy feel that many other cheaper Ultrabooks suffer from.

A unique feature on many newer HP laptops is the user customizable key called "Programmable key". The key can be set to launch an app or to input a string of text. Most other laptops do not have this feature built-in or require third-party applications to achieve the same goal.

Touchpad

The clickpad is exactly the same size as on the Dragonfly G3 (12 x 8 cm). However, the one here lacks the NFC option of the Dragonfly G3 which is a shame for users who rely on the feature. Cursor control is otherwise reliable and with very little sticking when gliding at slow or fast speeds.

Feedback when clicking on the clickpad is shallow and on the weak side for a slightly unsatisfying feel. Clatter is quieter as a result, but a firmer click would have been preferable.

Display — 60 Hz IPS Only

There are three touchscreen options to choose from:

  • 1920 x 1280, IPS, 400 nits, matte, 60 Hz
  • 1920 x 1280, IPS, 400 nits, glossy, 60 Hz
  • 1920 x 1280, IPS, 1000 nits, glossy, Sure View, 60 Hz

Our measurements below reflect only the bolded selection above, but all are likely to have similar color coverages and response times between them. Users can expect 99% sRGB coverage and a good contrast ratio of ~1500:1 from our particular configuration. Ghosting is unfortunately very noticeable due to the slow black-white and gray-gray response times meaning any fast motions in videos or games will appear blurry. An OLED option would have solved this problem but, alas, there is no such configuration.

Sure View is tied to the 1000-nit panel with no option to separate them. Sure View is a mixed experience as it sacrifices some visual fidelity for narrower and more private viewing angles.

Our system shares the same Chi Mei CMN13C0 display controller as found on the Dragonfly G3 to suggest that HP is utilizing the same panels across both models.

The panel is well calibrated out of the box with average grayscale and color deltaE values of 3.1 and 2.3, respectively. Nonetheless, our own calibration attempt would improve accuracy even further with average grayscale and color down to just 0.9 and 0.6, respectively. An end-user calibration can therefore be beneficial but largely unnecessary for most users. Our calibrated ICM profile is available above for owners who may be interested.

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

This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (34.1 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 not detected

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 18278 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Outdoor visibility is decent only when under shade as brighter conditions will wash out colors and create even more glare. As mentioned earlier, HP offers 1000-nit panel options for better visibility outdoors. Lenovo and Dell have yet to match this feature with their respective ThinkPad or Latitude convertibles.

Performance — Proper Core U-series Options

 

Testing Conditions

We set our unit to Best Performance mode via Windows and Performance mode via the HP Power Manager software prior to running any benchmarks below. It's recommended that owners become familiar with HP Power Manager, Auto Lock and Awake, and the Programmable Key applications. Power Manager sets the different performance levels of the laptop, Auto Lock and Awake toggles the IR sensor and auto-dimming features, and Programmable Key customizes the function of certain keys on the keyboard.

Processor

CPU performance is excellent with multi-thread results that are 10 to 15 percent faster than the average laptop in our database equipped with the same Core i7-1265U CPU. Most notably, it performs consistently faster than the Core i7-1265U in the Dragonfly G3 even after accounting for any throttling. Users upgrading from an older 10th gen Core i7-1065G7 will see massive gains in multi-thread performance by almost 2x.

Turbo Boost sustainability is not indefinite which is to be expected from a U-series Ultrabook. Running CineBench R15 xT in a loop shows a performance dip of about 20 percent over time as shown by the graph below.

Storage Devices — PCIe4 x4 Support

There is only room for one M.2 PCIe4 x4 NVMe SSD with no secondary options. Our test unit ships with a 512 GB Samsung PM9A1 for maximum read and write rates of up to 6700 MB/s and 4900 MB/s, respectively. Unfortunately, the drive cannot maintain such high transfer rates over long periods as shown by our DiskSpd loop test results below. The Dragonfly Folio G3 lacks an SSD heat spreader meaning the drive must throttle to keep temperatures at safer levels. It takes a few minutes of heavy SSD usage before any throttling would occur, however, and so this should shouldn't be a problem for most users.
