HP Pavilion Plus 16 Review: Premium multimedia laptop that could have benefitted from an RTX 4050

Nearly smashes the pavilion. HP aims to tap into the burgeoning entry-level creator market with the Pavilion Plus 16. The Pavilion Plus 16 is among the few laptops to feature the RTX 3050 6 GB GPU along with a Core i7-13700H, 16 GB RAM, and a QHD+ 120 Hz IPS display. While decent in its own right, comparison with similar laptops shows HP could have minimized some of the compromises for an even more compelling ₹1,24,999 (US$1,350) proposition.
HP Pavilion Plus 16 (2023) in review

HP introduced two new Pavilion Plus models recently as a more affordable alternative to the Envy series. We previously reviewed the Pavilion Plus 14 in both Intel Raptor Lake and AMD Zen 4 variants. Now, we take a look at the larger Pavilion Plus 16.

The Pavilion Plus 16 forgoes the "IMAX Enhanced" OLED panel of the Pavilion Plus 14 but instead offers an H-series processor and optional Nvidia graphics.

Our Pavilion Plus 16 unit features an Intel Core i7-13700H processor together with 16 GB RAM, 1 TB SSD, and a 16-inch 2560 x 1600 120 Hz IPS display. The Pavilion Plus 16 is among the handful of laptops that feature the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 6 GB Laptop GPU. This configuration will set you back by ₹1,24,999 (US$1,350) on the official HP India store.

Chassis: Sturdy, all-metal construction

Similar to the Pavilion Plus 14, the Pavilion Plus 16 sports a Natural Silver metallic construction for the A, C, and D covers while the lid is made of aluminum.

The overall build quality leaves little room for complaint. We did not notice any particular flex in the lid or the keyboard deck.

HP advertises a screen-to-body ratio of 89.74%, but the measured value comes to 83%. At 1.9 kg, the laptop weighs similar to other 16-inch multimedia laptops in vogue.

Connectivity: Consistent WLAN throughput

The Pavilion Plus 16 offers a decent port selection that includes a USB Type-A and USB Type-C ports including Thunderbolt 4.

Port placement is fine and does not hinder adjacent peripheral connectivity, but one of the Type-C ports could have been on the left side for a more even distribution.

Communication

The Intel Wi-Fi 6E AX211 WLAN card shows high, relatively stable throughput

The Pavilion Plus 16's iPerf3 performance in the 5 GHz band is a tad bit slower than what we observe with the Asus VivoBook Pro 16 with the same Intel Wi-Fi 6E AX211 WLAN card.

The Pavilion makes up for this deficiency against the VivoBook Pro 16 in 6 GHz receive performance but not by much.

iPerf3 performance in both 5 GHz and 6 GHz bands is fairly consistent without any hiccups unlike what we see with the Lenovo Slim Pro 7 with a MediaTek Wi-Fi 6E MT7922 chip.

Webcam

The 5 MP webcam produces decent images that are quite serviceable for video conferencing. Details are fairly well-preserved for a laptop webcam, but the camera can struggle in low light.

HP provides some nifty utilities such as HP Enhanced Lighting that brightens the screen around the subject and a Video Control app that offers additional framing and image adjustment options.

Security

HP provides a Windows Hello-compatible IR camera for the Pavilion Plus 16 along with a privacy shutter for the webcam. The IR camera performed reasonably fast during our time with the device.

Additionally, a TPM 2.0 module is present for meeting Windows 11's security requirements.

Accessories and Warranty

There are no additional accessories in the box apart from the 135 W power adapter and the usual paperwork.

HP offers a one-year warranty for the Pavilion Plus 16 in India. Buyers can extend this warranty for up to three more years by purchasing eligible HP Care Packs.

Maintenance

The bottom panel can be pried open after removing the four PH0 screws. The memory comes soldered, but the WLAN card, NVMe SSD, and the battery pack can be replaced if needed.

Input Devices: Full-size numpad with decent tactility

Keyboard

The Pavilion Plus 16's keyboard offers a decent typing experience. The grey keycaps offer good contrast with the Natural Silver chassis color. The numpad is spacious and comes in handy for number crunching in Excel. It lacks a Num Lock indicator, though.

The power button is located just beside the Delete key, which might confuse first time users. The top and bottom arrow keys feel cramped as well. A three-stage white backlight helps with low light legibility.

Touchpad

The 12.5 cm x 8 cm touchpad feels roomy and offers a smooth gliding experience with good feedback. However, the travel isn't as deep.

The entire touchpad acts as the left mouse button. Clicks towards the middle and base of the touchpad are more responsive than those at the top.

Display: 120 Hz WQXGA panel with a decent color profile and no PWM

The Pavilion Plus 16 comes with a 16-inch 16:10 2560 x 1600 WQXGA IPS panel with a 120 Hz refresh rate and a rated brightness of 400 nits.

We measured up to 415 nits maximum brightness with an average of 394 nits and a good 90% distribution. Being an IPS panel, the display is not immune from backlight bleed — this can be noticed in the lower corners under long exposure.

Subjectively, the Pavilion Plus 16 offers a good viewing experience that should be suitable for both work and entertainment.

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
6.7 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 3.6 ms rise
↘ 3.1 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 15 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.7 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
9.06 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 4.27 ms rise
↘ 4.79 ms fall
The screen shows fast response rates in our tests and should be suited for gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 17 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better 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 ≤ 100 % brightness setting

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 18305 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Response times are decent given that the Pavilion Plus 16 isn't targeted at the gaming crowd. We observed no PWM at all tested brightness levels, which is a good thing.

For more information, check out our article "Why PWM is such a headache". Our PWM Ranking table provides an overview of measured PWM across reviewed devices.

Outdoor viewing is generally fine at max brightness as long as there's no direct sunlight falling on the display. Viewing angles are stable, but we observed loss of brightness and color information at the extremes.

Performance: Core i7-13700H constrained by low PL2

Depending on the region, HP offers the Pavilion Plus 16 in Core i5-13500H and Core i7-13700H flavors along with optional RTX 3050 6 GB graphics.

 

Testing Conditions

The myHP app allows users to select between two operating modes: Balanced and Performance. The Balanced mode uses a 50 W PL1, which goes up to 60 W in Performance mode. The PL2 under both these modes is capped at 61 W.

The RTX 3050 6 GB GPU runs in MSHybrid / Optimus mode by default with no MUX switching possible.

We used the Performance mode for all benchmarks. The PL1/PL2 drops to 35 W / 35 W on battery power.

The Pavilion Plus 16's Core i7-13700H is hamstrung by a low PL2 value. This becomes particularly apparent with in multi-core benchmarks where it trails significantly behind the likes of the Dell Inspiron 16 Plus 7630 that sports an 89 W PL2 Core i7-13700H.

That being said, the Pavilion Plus 16's cooling seems to be very effective in ensuring a well-sustained performance during our Cinebench R15 multi-core loop test.

The Pavilion Plus 16 tops most CPU single-core charts, but the Schenker Vision 14 M23 is right on its heels in these tests.

System Performance

The WD PC SN810 offers decent read/write performance
The WD PC SN810 offers decent read/write performance

A Western Digital PC SN810 1 TB NVMe drive comes installed in our Pavilion Plus 16 unit. Cumulative drive performance is about 10% slower than the Samsung 990 Pro in the Schenker Vision 14 M23 and about 16% slower than the Samsung PM9A1 in the Samsung Galaxy Book3 Ultra 16.

The lower 4K read/write performance mainly contributes to this performance deficit.

Unfortunately, only one SSD can be installed in the chassis. There is no scope to add 2.5-inch drives either.
