Schenker Slim 15 Review: Wi-fi 6 laptop doesn't go to full capacity

Nino Ricchizzi, 👁 Sebastian Jentsch (translated by DeepL / Ninh Duy), 12/04/2019

New isn't always better. Schenker is entering the next round with the Slim 15 and is now relying on Intel's latest Comet architecture and exciting features. A fast WLAN module and a colorful keyboard illumination adorn our configuration. However, the new and faster processor does not fully exploit its potential.

Case, Equipment and Input devices

Schenker has once again opted for a mixture of aluminium and plastic components for the new Slim 15. The back of the display and the keyboard unit are made of metal elements. Whereas the display frame and the underbody unit are made of plastic. The transition between the two materials is precise and the overall feel is tidy. The hinges also make a robust impression at first glance.

The same applies to the input devices: nothing new in the West. The chiclet keyboard has a relatively wide and soft stroke with even and precise pressure points. Schenker also supplies a complete Numpad, which has to make do with somewhat narrower keys due to the space required. The real innovation is optical: Schenker provides a keyboard illumination with 23 selectable colours.

The touchpad used is sufficiently large and interprets all inputs as desired. Multitouch gestures are no problem either. What is new is that the fingerprint reader is now installed in the upper left corner of the touchpad. This limits the actual usable area somewhat.

Depending on preference, potential customers can choose between five different WLAN modules when configuring the Schenker Slim 15. Our present model has an Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200 module including Bluetooth 5.0. According to the data sheet, the 2x2 stream is supposed to achieve a transmission rate of up to 2.4 GBit/s gross. In our tests, the test candidate achieves a speed of 1.3 - 1.4 GBit/s. The data sheet shows that the 2x2 stream has a gross transmission rate of up to 2.4 GBit/s. In our tests, the test candidate achieves a speed of 1.3 - 1.4 GBit/s.

The large 6-in-1 card reader convinces as in our last test of the Slim-15-RED-Edtion. Using Toshiba Exceria Pro SDXC 64 GB UHS-II, the test notebook achieves higher read and write rates than the average in its class.

Display

Sub-pixel array
Sub-pixel array

A matt IPS panel with a Full HD resolution of 1,920 x 1,020 pixels is used in our test device. The BOE display has an average brightness of 294 cd/m². The brightness can also be maintained during battery operation.

The adjustment of the brightness levels of the display is technically realized by means of PWM control. Unfortunately, we notice particularly low frequencies of 250 Hz here. This can have negative effects on sensitive people.

The contrast of 1:086 and the deviations of the colors are, as usual with an IPS panel, decent.

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
31 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 17 ms rise
↘ 14 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. » 79 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (24.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
45 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 23 ms rise
↘ 22 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.9 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 70 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (39.4 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 detected 250 Hz ≤ 80 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 250 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 80 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 250 Hz is relatively low, so sensitive users will likely notice flickering and experience eyestrain at the stated brightness setting and below.

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9338 (minimum: 43 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

Performance, Emissions and Battery life

Performance, Emissions and Battery lifeThe heart of the new Slim 15 is an Intel Core i5-10210U from Intel's Comet-Lake-U generation. The new SoC has four cores with a clock rate between 1.6 - 4.2 GHz. In our case, according to HWInfo, we can only maintain a maximum clock frequency of 3.9 GHz. In our last configuration of the Schenker Slim 15 series, an Intel Core i5-8265U was installed. Whether there are differences in performance and how serious they are, we want to analyze on the basis of various benchmarks.

In the Cinebench R15, our test candidate scores 744 points. In the first run of the benchmark, the CPU calculates with 3.4 - 3.7 GHz. In the second attempt, the average speed is only 2.4 - 2.7 GHz, which is why the score drops to 602. In the further course, the willingness to perform decreases further, so that only a score of about 540 points is achieved. This result is slightly above that of the predecessor model of the Slim 15 with Intel Core i5-8265U. However, opponents like the Asus Zenbook 14 (i5-8265U) perform somewhat better.

The reason for the result are the temperatures inside: The test device barely warms up externally. Even under load conditions, the Schenker laptop stays below 40 °C almost everywhere. This can only be achieved if the heat development of the CPU is kept low. Even after over an hour in the load scenario, we notice that the processor doesn't get warmer than 65 °C on average. At this load, the processor clock drops to only 1.1 GHz.

Overall, the system performance is satisfactory. In combination with the fast PCIe SSD memory, the test device leaves a sovereign character.

We can also positively state that the battery capacity has increased from 36 Wh to 54.5 Wh. As a result, the Schenker Slim 15 now lasts around six hours while surfing the World Wide Web. Compared to the competition, however, we also see that there is even more air upwards. One explanation is the required power consumption. Overall, the current Schenker notebook was thirstier than its predecessor.

Verdict

The Schenker Slim 15, provided by Schenker Technologies.
The Schenker Slim 15, provided by Schenker Technologies.

Narrow, chic and fast - with air up. With these words the Slim 15 can be summarized in its newest version. The exterior is again adorned with a mixture of plastic and aluminium elements. The workmanship is satisfactory throughout. What is new in our current test configuration is the colour-backed keyboard illumination, the fingerprint reader and the fast WLAN module, which in practice transmits far more than one gigabit per second.

The input devices and the display were already tested for their suitability in the Red-Edtion. There were no serious differences here. Only the display in our version had a somewhat low PWM frequency. The main focus of the Schenker test device is the brand new Intel Core i5-10210U. The economical quad-core currently can't prove its performance due to a strict heat/clock ratio. But the test candidate doesn't get noticeably hot for any situation. The battery life is also rather mediocre, which we can unfortunately only date to around six hours.

Nevertheless, the Schenker Slim 15 is a fast and loyal companion in the office area. 

This is not least due to the large connectivity, a matt IPS panel and an extremely fast PCIe fixed memory.

In our configuration, the Slim 15 is available in the manufacturer's own shop for around 1,090 euros.
