Reviews for the HP Spectre x360 16-f0008ca

70% HP Spectre x360 16 review: The right 2-in-1 at the wrong time
Source: PC World English
The HP Spectre x360 16 is a decent 2-in-1 with a gorgeous OLED display and an outstanding design. It has a discrete graphics card, too—a rarity for convertibles. There’s only one big problem… the processor is obsolete. Intel’s Core i7-11390H was never an outstanding choice and today, with Intel 12th-gen Core processors hitting stores and AMD Ryzen 5000 processors widely available, it’s not suitable for a high-end device. The lackluster CPU performance and battery life makes it fall behind the competition. In fact, you can already buy the HP Spectre x360 2-in-1 with an Intel Core i7-12700H processor – but only at Best Buy (for now). This model is not available on HP.com. It also doesn’t have Nvidia graphics, which is a bummer. Still, it shows additional 12th-gen Core models are likely to come sooner than later. I recommend waiting for their arrival.

2022 HP Spectre x360 16" Review - OLED + RTX
Source: Mobile Tech Review English
The 2022 HP Spectre x360 16” follows the 14” model’s redesign with a bigger 16:10 aspect ratio display, a less angular interpretation of HP’s old Gem Cut look and powerful internals for a 16” 2-in-1 convertible Windows laptop. Sporting an Intel H35 Core i7 inside and NVIDIA RTX 3050 graphics, performance is similar to the Surface Laptop Studio and it’s more powerful than the Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro 360. A 2-button pen is included. The PC has Thunderbolt 4, USB-A, HDMI, a microSD card slot, Wi-Fi 6E and a 5MP webcam. As ever, it’s a premium, elegant aluminum convertible with pen and touch.

80% HP Spectre x360 16 Review: Big, Luxurious 2-in-1 for Creatives
Source: CNet English
There are also things like Wi-Fi 6E for the fastest wireless performance; an IR camera for face recognition, as well as a fingerprint reader to simplify sign-ins; and helpful software for managing system performance and content creation. Even if you're not a creative, all of the Spectre x360 16's features add up to a great two-in-one experience. It's something you likely won't mind working on every day. And with the additional graphics boost, you can do a little gaming in your downtime, too.

80% HP Spectre x360 16 Review
Source: PC Mag English
The HP Spectre x360 16 is one of the most stylish entries in the increasingly crowded field of not-quite-workstation laptops for creative pros and digital dabblers. (We're wrapping up this review and haven't even mentioned the Apple MacBook Pro 16 and Dell XPS 15 yet.) It has one notable drawback (a merely adequate quad-core CPU, versus some competitors' blazing eight-core chips), but one notable advantage: the 2-in-1 ability to switch from laptop to tablet mode. Its glorious screen pushes it very close to Editors' Choice award territory, but even as a near miss, it's worth a long look if you're partial to big convertibles.

HP Spectre x360 16 Review: It’s a lot of computer, but it’s awesome
Source: XDA Developers English
The bottom line is that this is a phenomenal laptop for creators and artists. That’s also why I say it’s not for everyone. The HP Spectre x360 16 is a lot of computer. If you’re looking for something that weighs three pounds and is comfortable to carry around, this isn’t it. This thing is big, weighing over four pounds. It’s awesome, but you have to want that particular kind of awesome.

HP Spectre X360 16 Review - with 4K OLED Display - 16t-f000 / 16-f0035nr
Source: Lon.TV English
HP's new Spectre X360 16 has a gorgeous 4k OLED display in one of its configurations paired with an RTX 3050 GPU. While not great for gaming it might be something creative professionals might be interested in.

HP Spectre x360 16 review: A big, beautiful convertible laptop
Source: Engadget English
The x360 16 has everything we’d want in a big-screen convertible notebook. Just don’t give up on the dream of using it as a tablet, though.

HP Spectre x360 16 review: A big, beautiful convertible laptop
Source: Engadget English
As much as I love our review model's OLED screen, the better x360 16 deal is the LED-equipped $1,700 model with the same CPU, RAM and RTX 3050 GPU. It has a smaller 512GB SSD, but you can always upgrade that down the line. If you're less concerned about gaming performance, the entry-level $1,500 model drops the RTX 3050 for Intel's Xe graphics. As the only big-screen convertible game in town, HP could have easily phoned it in with the Spectre x360 16. Instead, it’s given us a powerful premium notebook that can do some gaming amid a flurry of Zoom calls, and look good while doing it.

80% HP Spectre x360 16 review: Finesse, not power
Source: Digital Trends English
HP’s replacement is the Spectre x360 16, a slightly larger 2-in-1 with a 16:10 display and some significant design changes to the iconic Spectre gem-cut design. The only problem? It missed the upcoming wave of Intel 12th-gen Core or AMD Ryzen 6000 updates, which gives it an uphill climb as we head into 2022. I reviewed the high-end $2,030 configuration of the Spectre x360 16 with a 35-watt Core i7-11390H, Nvidia RTX 3050 GPU, and a 16-inch 4K+ (3,840 x 2,400) OLED display. It’s a beautiful, high-end laptop for sure, despite the shortcomings in performance. Buy the Spectre x360 16 for its display, keyboard and touchpad, and solid productivity performance. Just don’t expect it to keep up with the leaders in creative applications.

80% HP Spectre x360 16 review: Finesse, not power
Source: Digital Trends English
The HP Spectre x360 16 is a very well-built and attractive convertible 2-in-1, offering a spectacular OLED display, an excellent keyboard and touchpad, and good productivity performance. Judging by just those measures, it’s a solid alternative as a large-format 2-in-1. The only concern is that many people buy large laptops for creative work, and the Spectre x360 16 underwhelms in this arena. It’s also using last year’s CPU, and it will fall even further behind in performance once laptops with Intel’s 12th-gen processors start rolling out. That doesn’t make it an unworthy purchase by any means, and there’s not a better 16-inch 2-in-1 on the market today. It’s just something to keep in mind as you pull out your credit card.

HP Spectre X360 16" (2022) Review - The Best 2-in-1 Laptop?
Source: Matthew Moniz English
The 2022 Hp Spectre X360 is now 16-inches instead of 15. It's still one of the best looking Convertibles on the market and the updates to the design and software make it even better. There's tons of 2-in-1s on the market but this is still one of my favourites. HP Spectre X360 Review 2022.

i7-11390H: Tiger Lake (H35 series) based high end quad-core SoC for thin and light gaming laptops and workstations. The four CPU cores clock with 2.9 - 3.4 GHz base clock (28 - 35 W TDP) and up to 5 GHz Boost clock.

16.00":

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.

HP: Founded in 1939, the US company is a major server and printer manufacturer and one of the leading IT companies in the world. Until 2015, the company was called Hewlett-Packard Company. After a split, the computer division was renamed HP Inc.

76.25%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
