HP EliteBook Dragonfly Max Convertible Review: Sure View Has Its Ups And Downs

Feature-rich. There's so much to like about the 13.3-inch Elite Dragonfly Max from its portable design to its 5G options and comfortable keyboard. However, Sure View hampers the visual experience significantly and it can't be ignored.

After launching the first generation Elite Dragonfly G1 in early 2020, HP is now readying its second generation models with 11th gen Intel Tiger Lake-U for 2021. The two new models are the Dragonfly G2 and even higher-end Dragonfly Max packed with more features and performance than on the original G1 model. The main differences between them are summarized in the table below, but they all otherwise share similar chassis designs and dimensions.

Our test unit has been fully configured with the Core i7-1185G7 CPU, 16 GB RAM, 1000-nit Gorilla Glass 5 Sure View touchscreen, Snapdragon X55 5G LTE, and 512 GB PCIe SSD for about $2500 USD. Other options include the Core i7-1165G7, 32 GB RAM, or no WWAN broadband.

It's worth noting that there are no Iris Xe Max discrete GPU options despite what the model name may suggest. All SKUs at the moment come with integrated Iris Xe graphics across the board. The "Max" in this case is to differentiate the configuration from the lesser Dragonfly G2.

Alternatives to the HP EliteBook Dragonfly Max include other 13.3-inch business laptops like the Lenovo ThinkPad X13 Yoga G2MSI Summit E13 Flip EvoAsus ZenBook Flip S UX371, or the 14-inch Dell Latitude 14 9410.

Case: A Professional Spectre

The MIL-STD 810H certified magnesium skeleton is similar to the original Dragonfly but with a few superficial differences. Firstly, HP has added a sparkling black finish which slightly roughens the texture compared to the super-smooth metal of the original. Secondly, more of the mechanical and metal parts have been sourced from recycled materials for sustainability purposes. Chassis rigidity remains excellent with no creaking and very little warping. The center of the outer lid flexes most to applied pressure, but we don't find it to be of any concern.

When compared to HP's other high-end 13.3-inch convertible, the Dragonfly Max doesn't necessarily feel any stronger or weaker in terms of quality. Instead, it's the visual style that separates the two laptops. The all-matte Dragonfly design is arguably a better fit for professional environments than the flashy gold-trimmed Spectre.

Much like the original Dragonfly, the Dragonfly Max continues to be one of the smallest and most portable 13.3-inch business Ultrabooks in the market. The competing Dynabook Portégé X30W-J is even lighter by over 200 grams, but it lacks the optional WAN and 5G features of our Dragonfly Max.

Connectivity: Now With Thunderbolt 4

Port options are identical to the 2020 Dragonfly but with two important upgrades: the Thunderbolt 3 and HDMI 1.4 ports are now Thunderbolt 4 and HDMI 2.0, respectively. The latter update is particularly important as it allows users to connect 4K60 external monitors. For future models, we hope to see USB-C ports along both the left and right edges of the laptop much like on the Razer Blade Stealth for easier charging.

There is no SD card reader as HP wants to push QuickDrop instead.

Communication

An Intel AX201 comes standard for Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1 connectivity. If configured with 5G, the unit will come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon X55 with support for SIM and even eSIM. All supported 5G bands can be found on Qualcomm's product page for the modem. HP offers the option between AT&T or Verizon, but T-Mobile will also work.

Webcam

The Dragonfly Max is unique in that it's one of the first 13.3-inch laptops to ship with a 5 MP webcam instead of the usual 1 MP or 2 MP sensor. Users can take pictures at resolutions of up to 2560 x 1920 or record video at up to 1440p and 30 FPS. Though picture quality is noticeably sharper, the camera still suffers from the same issues as most other laptop webcams including poor performance at low-light conditions, poor colors, and no 60 FPS recording option.

Security

The additional security features help differentiate the EliteBook series from the Spectre series. The Dragonfly Max Comes with Automatic DriveLock, fingerprint reader, IR, webcam shutter, Secure Erase, TPM 2.0 and vPro, Sure Click, Sure Start, BIOSphere, Sure View, Sure Sense, and more with many that are exclusive to the Elitebook family.

Maintenance

The bottom panel is secured by five easily accessible T5 Torx screws with none hidden underneath the rubber feet. Users can service the battery, WLAN, WWAN, and M.2 2280 SSD while the RAM modules are soldered.

Accessories and Warranty

The retail box includes no extras beyond the AC adapter and paperwork. A carrying case or stylus would have been nice add-ons.

A 3-year limited manufacturer warranty comes standard compared to just one year on consumer-level laptops like the Spectre or Envy series.

Input Devices: One of the Best Keyboards on a Convertible

Keyboard

key feedback is sharper, deeper, and firmer than on most other Ultrabooks where the keys are typically shallower and spongier. Clatter is moderately loud, however, but the slight increase in noise is well worth the more comfortable typing experience.

Key layout has changed from the 2020 version to be more in line with the latest Envy laptops. Most notably, HP has removed the Calendar key for a much more useful Programmable or user-customizable key.

Touchpad

The Precision clickpad is larger than the one on the latest Spectre x360 13 (11 x 6.5 cm vs. 11.1 x 5.6 cm). Traction is smooth and with just very little sticking when gliding at slow speeds. We find feedback to be softer and quieter than on the Spectre x360 13 when clicking, but it's not overly soft to be considered too spongy.

Display: Sure View has its Downsides

Interestingly, the Dragonfly Max uses an InfoVision IPS panel instead of the AU Optronics one as found on the original Dragonfly. HP says the low blue light filter for reducing eyestrain is exclusive to the Dragonfly Max similar to what Dell offers for some of its XPS laptops. Innate characteristics like response times, contrast ratio, and color coverage are otherwise nearly identical between the Dragonfly Max and original Dragonfly.

Image quality leaves a lot to be desired. While glossy displays are normally known for offering sharp texts and images, the Dragonfly Max incorporates an additional Sure View layer to limit viewing angles for privacy concerns. This layer has an unfortunate side effect of blurring the underlying pixels for blurrier texts and images. Its impact on display quality isn't minor either as we can immediately see how much cleaner and crisper competing laptops like the Dell XPS 13 can be. Even the glossy Sure View-free Spectre x360 13 can provide a much cleaner image than what our Dragonfly Max is capable of.

Keep in mind that the advertised 1000-nit brightness of our test unit is the official rating for the backlight before factoring in the Sure View layer, RGB layer, and Gorilla Glass overlay. Actual brightness is closer to the 700-nit to 800-nit range as a result when Sure View is off. Enabling Sure View will drop display brightness even further.

The display is well-calibrated out of the box with very low average deltaE values and a nearly perfect gamma of 2.198 in spite of our Sure View comments above. End-user calibration is not necessary as any changes would be minimal as shown by our CalMan results below.

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
32 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 18.8 ms rise
↘ 13.2 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 240 (maximum) ms. » 81 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (24.1 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
44.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 20.4 ms rise
↘ 24.4 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. » 68 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (38.2 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: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9716 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 151500) Hz was measured.

Viewing angles and outdoor visibility are not as good as we had hoped despite the bright backlight. The Sure View filter impacts viewing angles so strongly that even the main user might have a hard time seeing everything on the display clearly. Not only is glare very noticeable, but everything becomes white and illegible if the screen is turned by just a slight angle. You'd be better off with a 400-nit or 500-nit display without Sure View than a 1000-nit display with Sure View if outdoor visibility is a concern.

Performance: 11th Gen Tiger Lake with iris Xe

All SKUs come with either the Core i7-1165G7 or Core i7-1185G7 vPro and nothing less. High-end HP laptops like the Dragonfly continue to support Intel CPUs only; for AMD Ryzen options, users will have to look at lesser Envy or clamshell EliteBook models instead.

Our unit was set to Best Performance mode prior to running any performance benchmarks below for the highest possible scores. The system comes with HP Context Aware which will automatically reduce performance if the laptop is not on a flat table. HP says this feature will be disabled if the Windows performance slider is set to Best Performance.

 

Processor

Raw multi-thread performance is below average with CineBench xT scores that are 30 percent slower than the average laptop with the same Core i7-1185G7 CPU. It's still a significant leap over the older Whiskey Lake-U options on last year's Dragonfly, but it's not as big of a difference as it could have been.

Single-thread performance remains excellent and faster than most other U-series laptops as per usual for Intel CPUs.

System Performance

PCMark scores are consistently ahead of last year's Dragonfly model especially in Digital Content Creation where the more powerful Iris Xe GPU can make the most difference.

We experienced no software or hardware issues during our time with the test unit. However, expect a lot of popups during the first few days of use from the various pre-installed HP applications.

Storage Devices

Our unit comes with a 512 GB Toshiba XG6 NVMe SSD which is the lowest option available. Users may configure up to 2 TB or simply upgrade themselves. HP isn't offering any Optane options unlike on most Spectre laptops.

Transfer rates are excellent at almost 2500 MB/s sequential write and 3300 MB/s sequential read compared to just half that or slower on the 512 GB Intel SSD 660p, Samsung PM991, or SK Hynix BC511. However, there's no guarantee that all Dragonfly SKUs will come with Toshiba XG6 NVMe SSDs.

GPU Performance

Graphics performance is disappointing with 3DMark results that are 20 to 27 percent slower than the average laptop in our database equipped with the same Iris Xe 96 EUs GPU. Furthermore, frame rates may fluctuate when gaming due to the fluctuating clock rates when under high processing stress. The Dragonfly Max isn't a gaming machine, however, so the below-average Iris Xe performance isn't a huge issue. Users upgrading from older UHD Graphics 620 or even Iris Plus will still see noticeable improvements.
