HP Pavilion x360 15-inch (2021) 2-in-1 Laptop Review: Dim screen, high price

Versatile. HP’s 2-in-1 device features the Core i5-1135G7, 16 GB of dual-channel RAM and an NVMe SSD. This is why it can handle all modern tasks. The touchscreen can be operated with the fingers or the HP Tilt Pen.

Case - The wrist rest area is not rigid

The housing of the HP Pavilion x360 is made of plastic. The display lid and the top of the chassis have a non-reflective silver-coloured surface which feels smooth to the touch. The wrist rest area has a texture which resembles brushed aluminium. The back plate has a rough surface and a greyish colour. You can't replace the battery without disassembling the laptop first. There is no quick maintenance hatch, either.

The build quality is solid. We did not notice any defects such as chinks where different pieces of plastic meet. However, the chassis is not very rigid. A small amount of pressure is sufficient to bend in the housing on either side of the keyboard. However, the display lid is quite stiff.

The hinges can hold the display in a set position. The display lid can be opened with one hand. When fully open, the display lid raises slightly the upper portion of the chassis.

The Pavilion x360 and the HP Envy 15 are the largest and heaviest devices in our comparison chart. However, other competitors have 14-inch screens.

Connectivity - HP convertible supports Power Delivery over USB-C

The Pavilion x360 features two USB-A ports (USB 3.2 Gen 1) and one USB-C port (USB 3.2 Gen 2). The Type-C port supports Power Delivery and can output a DisplayPort signal. There is also an HDMI port. The Pavilion x360 comes with HP’s proprietary charging port. Alternately, the laptop can be charged with the help of a USB-C power adapter (45 W minimum).

Card Reader

The microSD card reader achieved very good data transfer rates with our reference-grade SD card (Angelbird AV PRO microSD 128 GB V60). When copying JPG files, we saw a maximum transfer rate of 74.3 MB/s. When copying large files, the transfer rates peaked at 85.3 MB/s.

Communication

The Wi-Fi module (Intel Wireless-AC 9461) supports the following Wi-Fi standards: 802.11a, b, g, n, and ac. Bluetooth 5 is also supported. The Pavilion x360 did not achieve good data transfer rates in our Wi-Fi test which is to be expected considering the Wi-Fi card is not designed to break past the 433 Mb/s limit.

Web Camera

The Pavilion x360 has a low-resolution 0.9-MP web camera which produces subpar photos and videos. The colour reproduction is especially poor with a DeltaE 2000 of 22 (the ideal value is less than 3).

Accessories

The box contains the usual accessories (warranty information, quick start guide).

Maintenance

The bottom plate of the Pavilion x360 can be removed. To do this, all screws on the underside need to be undone. It is worth mentioning that there are screws under the rubber feet, which are quite brittle and therefore need to be removed with care. After all the screws are undone, the bottom cover can be removed with the help of a spudger or a guitar pick.

Warranty

The Pavilion x360 comes with a 12-month warranty. A two-year warranty extension will cost buyers an additional 50 Euros (~ $60).

Input Devices - Backlit keyboard

Keyboard

The chiclet-style keyboard offers a decent travel distance and a clear actuation point. However, the keys feel a little mushy. The keyboard deck exhibits some flex when typing. The backlight offers two luminance levels. All in all, the Pavilion x360 has a decent keyboard.

TouchPad

The HP laptop uses a TouchPad (12.5x8 cm) as a replacement for the mouse. The pad has a clear actuation point and short travel distance. It reliably recognises inputs, even in the corners.

Touchscreen

The 10-point touchscreen has no trouble recognising inputs. It can be operated with the fingers or the HP Tilt Pen MPP2.0 (3J122AA; €80/$95), which is sold separately.

Display - Dim IPS panel

Both the brightness (246.1 cd/m²) and the contrast ratio (859:1) are too low. When running on battery power, the maximum brightness amounts to only 216 cd/m². As a rule, we consider a screen brightness of at least 300 cd/m² and a contrast ratio of at least 1000:1 to be good.

* ... smaller is better

Right out of the box, the screen offers a decent colour reproduction. However, with a DeltaE 2000 colour deviation of 6, the display misses the mark (DeltaE less than 3) considerably. The display does not suffer from a bluish cast. The HP laptop cannot cover both the sRGB colour space and the Adobe RGB colour space. It can only cover 59% of sRGB and 38% of Adobe RGB.

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
28 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 15 ms rise
↘ 13 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 61 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (23.9 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
42 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 19 ms rise
↘ 23 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. » 56 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (37.8 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: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 15315 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

The Pavilion x360 comes with an IPS display. Therefore, the screen content can be read from any angle. Outdoors, the device can only be used when the sun does not shine too brightly. In broad daylight, the display is too dim and reflective to be usable.

Processor

The Pavilion x360 comes with Intel’s Tiger Lake-based Core i5-1135G7 which features four cores with a base clock of 2.4 GHz. Thanks to Intel’s Turbo Boost technology, the clock rate can be increased up to 3.8 GHz for all cores and 4.2 GHz for a single core. The processor supports Intel’s Hyper-Threading technology (one core can process two threads at the same time). 

The CPU runs for a short time at 3.8 GHz in the multi-core section of the CineBench R15 benchmark. Then the clock rate starts to fluctuate between 1.7 GHz and 3 GHz. The clock speeds range from 1.7 to 4.2 GHz in the single-core section of the benchmark. When running on battery power, the performance of the processor drops significantly.

When compared to other laptops with the Core i5-1135G7, the Pavilion x360 leaves a rather mixed impression. It offers a very high level of single-core performance, but it achieves only mediocre results in the heavily threaded benchmarks.

Single-core (plugged in)
Single-core (plugged in)

We check whether or not Intel’s Turbo Boost technology can be used over an extended period of time by running the multi-core section of the CineBench R15 benchmark for 30 straight minutes in a continuous loop. The clock rates fall considerably shortly after the benchmark is initiated. All in all, the Turbo Boost technology is not fully utilised.

Gaming Performance

Even though the 2-in-1 laptop is not meant for gaming, it can still achieve playable frame rates in many games—on low settings and at low resolutions. However, the iGPU will not be able to handle the latest AAA titles.
