This is HP's Answer To The Apple MacBook Pro: 2020 Envy 15 Creator Core i7 Review

Like an Omen 15, but white. HP is betting big on 4K AMOLED, faster GeForce RTX graphics, and cheaper starting prices to challenge the all-popular MacBook Pro series and attract more content creators.

Traditionally, the HP Envy series has always been the middle-ground solution between the budget Pavilion series and higher-end Spectre series. More recently, however, the manufacturer has been pushing it more towards the high-performance direction to cater to demanding multimedia users and content creators. The latest Envy 15 model is being marketed as a direct competitor to the Apple MacBook Pro series and therefore other GeForce-powered multimedia laptops like the Dell XPS 15, Gigabyte Aero 15, or Microsoft Surface Book 3 15.

Perhaps the defining feature of the 2020 Envy 15 is its uncommon GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q option which is not found on many other laptops. This GPU alone should give the HP significant performance boosts against most other multimedia laptops that tend to top out at "only" the GTX 1650 or 1660 Ti. Outside of the GPU, 10th gen Intel Comet Lake-H CPUs come standard alongside the optional 4K UHD AMOLED touchscreen or lesser UHD Graphics 630. Our specific configuration retails for about $1500 USD on HP.com.

Case

It's been three years since we last checked out an Envy 15 clamshell and the latest model brings significant changes both inside and out. The newer design is smaller in footprint because of the thinner bezels but thicker in size because of the much faster processors inside. HP has also dropped the old "hooked" hinge design in favor of regular hinges akin to the MacBook Pro for a more professional no-frills look.

Hinge rigidity could be stiffer nonetheless. The lid tends to teeter a bit when adjusting angles which doesn't give a sense of longevity.

The system is slightly thicker and heavier than the MacBook Pro 15 while being slightly smaller than the MacBook Pro 16. Performance-per-volume favors the HP Envy because of its more powerful GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q GPU.

Connectivity

Unlike the Dell XPS 17 or MacBook Pro 16 and their ludicrous number of Thunderbolt 3 ports, the Envy 15 offers a better variety of options. Its full-size USB-A and HDMI ports will indubitably come in handy whereas the aforementioned Dell or Apple systems rely heavily on adapters. There is no Kensington Lock, however.

SD Card Reader

The system integrates a MicroSD reader instead of a full-size one. Transfer rates are decent, but they're nowhere near as fast as what you'd get from the Dell XPS 15 series or Spectre x360 15 series.

Accessories and Warranty

There are no extras in the box other than the AC adapter and paperwork. Nonetheless, a wide range of optional accessories and docking stations are available from HP.

The standard one-year limited warranty applies with free 90-day phone support.

Input Devices

Keyboard

Unlike most other keyboards, the large fingerprint reader on the Envy 15 replaces the Fn key for better or worse. This "feature" is shared between the latest Envy x360 13 and Envy 17t as well. It's a comfortable typing experience so long as you can get used to this change.

The F12 key doubles as a hotkey for HP Command Center which you will want to access frequently for fan control and performance control.

Touchpad

The Precision glass clickpad is slightly larger than the clickpad on the Microsoft Surface Laptop 3 15 (12.5 x 7.5 cm vs. 11.5 x 7.6 cm). Glide is smooth with almost no sticking even when moving at slow speeds. The main issue is that its integrated mouse keys are spongy with shallow travel and weak feedback when pressed. A firmer click would have made the clickpad easier and more reliable to use.

Display

HP advertises a 400-nit AMOLED touchscreen while our independent measurements show an average of 374 nits to be about 25 to 35 percent dimmer than the XPS 15 or MacBook Pro 16. HP is well aware of this brightness deficit and it says the Envy 15 makes up for it with the higher native resolution, faster response times, deeper blacks, and wider color space than the Apple alternative which we can confirm.

Interestingly, the screen is slightly grainier than what we are used to from a glossy display. Put up a completely white image at maximum brightness and the picture won't appear as sharp as a glossy Dell XPS 15. It's nothing drastic, but it's worth noting nonetheless.

HWiNFO is unable to identify the exact panel name as it only states the Samsung SDC4145 controller. Pulse-width modulation from 0 percent to 44 percent brightness is 240 Hz while pulse-width modulation from 45 percent to 100 percent brightness is 59.5 Hz which is similar in behavior to what we observed on the OLED XPS 15 and OLED Razer Blade 15. Perhaps not coincidentally, all of these laptops are using similar OLED panels from Samsung.

Users can choose between IPS 1080p matte 300 nits, IPS 1080p matte 400 nits, IPS 1080p glossy toucnscreen 400 nits, and AMOLED 4K UHD touchscreen 400 nits

* ... smaller is better

HP promises 100 percent DCI-P3 color coverage when configured with 4K OLED much like all other 4K OLED options on other laptops at the moment. Our own measurements show color space to be slightly wider on the HP when compared to the MacBook Pro 16 (88 percent vs. 78 percent AdobeRGB). Users can quickly toggle between sRGB, AdobeRGB, DCI-P3, or default by right-clicking on desktop.

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
2.7 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 1.3 ms rise
↘ 1.4 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 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 1 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (24.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey

In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 0 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (38.7 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 242.7 Hz ≤ 44 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 242.7 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 44 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 242.7 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 9588 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

The display backlight is not bright enough for comfortable use outdoors on a bright day. The glossy screen makes glare mostly unavoidable as well even when working under shade. If outdoor visibility is important, then the HP EliteBook series would be the better option for its super-bright 1000-nit panels.

Performance

There are no Core i3, Core i5, or ULV Comet Lake-U options as HP wants to position its latest Envy 15 as a high-performance multimedia laptop. However, users can still configure with only the integrated UHD Graphics 630 or the GTX 1650 Ti or GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q if desired.

Nvidia Optimus comes standard if configured with a GeForce GPU for automatic graphics switching. All benchmarks below were performed on HP Performance mode for the best possible scores.

Processor

While the Core i7-10750H in general isn't that huge of a leap over the Core i7-9750H, it runs surprisingly well on the Envy 15. Performance sustainability is excellent when running CineBench R15 xT in a loop as shown by our graph below. The Core i9-10885H is available for users who can benefit from having extra cores.

Storage Devices

HP uses the same Intel Optane H10 HBRPEKNX0202A SSD for both its Envy clamshell and Envy x360 convertible series. Standard NVMe options are available at configuration which we recommend over Optane for most general consumers due to price. You're likely not going to notice the advantages of Optane unless if you're a serious content creator working with tons of small 4K block file sizes.

GPU Performance

Though HP isn't marketing the Envy 15 as a gaming laptop, its GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q GPU is wholly capable of playing the latest titles at 1080p. Raw performance is only about 5 to 10 percent slower than the regular mobile GeForce RTX 2060 as found on most dedicated gaming laptops. Upgrading from the GTX 1650 Ti or GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q option to our RTX 2060 Max-Q will net about 65 percent and 15 percent faster graphics performance, respectively, on top of any RTX-specific features.

3DMark results are 50 to 75 percent higher than the Radeon Pro 5500M as found on the MacBook Pro 16 to the noticeably faster graphics solution.

Running the laptop on HP Performance mode results in faster CPU performance when compared to the regular HP Default mode. Our Fire Strike Physics score, for example, would jump from 15002 points to 18040 points.

Emissions

System Noise

The fans never idle even when set to the quietest settings through HP Command Center. Fan noise bottoms at 32.2 dB(A) against a background of 26.4 dB(A) to always be slightly audible no matter the onscreen load. It's not loud enough to be distracting, but don't expect this laptop to be as quiet as a typical Ultrabook.

Fan noise jumps noticeably when subjected to higher loads. Running Witcher 3 on the HP Default and HP performance power profiles would result in a fan noise of 50 .8 dB(A) and 53.7 dB(A), respectively, to be similar in range to many high-performance gaming laptops.

Temperature

Surface temperature development is largely symmetrical. Hot spots near the center can be as warm as 47 C to 51 C on the top and bottom sides of the laptop, respectively, compared to 41 C to 47 C on the MacBook Pro 16. The Envy 15 will feel more like a thin gaming laptop than an Ultrabook when under high loads in this regard.

Stress Test

When running Prime95 on HP Performance mode, the CPU would boost to 4.2 GHz with the fan kicking to gear once core temperature reaches 85 C. It eventually stabilizes at 4.0 to 4.1 GHz and at a core temperature of 86 C. If running the same test on HP Default mode, the CPU would stabilize at a much lower 2.1 GHz clock rate and 61 C core temperature instead. The performance differences between the HP profiles are therefore significant if running high processing loads.

Interestingly, average core temperatures when under extreme loads are not all that different from the MacBook Pro 16 even though the latter uses a slower Radeon GPU. When running Prime95 and FurMark, the CPU and GPU in the HP would stabilize at 88 C and 71 C, respectively, compared to 78 C and 79 C on the Apple.

Running on battery power will limit performance. A Fire Strike test on batteries would return Physics and Graphics scores of 11779 and 4440 points, respectively, compared to 18040 and 15578 points when on mains.
