HP Envy X360 15

With PC makers moving more toward using taller 16:10- and 3:2-ratio displays instead of widescreen 16:9 panels, models like the HP Envy x360 15 might soon be a rarity. On the other hand, 15.6-inch two-in-ones are already fairly uncommon. Still, this Envy is strong competition against models like Lenovo Yoga 7i and Dell Inspiron 15 2-in-1 for its mix of component options and design and software features. If you're looking for a big, widescreen two-in-one, this is a good place to start.

  • Size, weight are awkward for tablet use

Also, while it might arrive to you with Windows 10, it meets the requirements for a free upgrade to Windows 11. A two-in-one is going to be a great way to take full advantage of the new OS and its support for Android apps and its enhanced tablet interface. Although, its 15.6-inch size and 4.1-pound weight does make it awkward to use as a handheld tablet. Still, it's fine on a table and you can always use it in tent or stand modes, too. The Envy x360 15 has pen support, too, and it magnetically attaches to the body. However, not all configurations come with a pen (mine didn't).

The HP Envy x360 15 starts at around $650 but the configuration I tested is available directly from HP for a penny under $1,000. It's currently out of stock, but you can get it with 8GB of memory from Best Buy or 12GB from Costco. HP also offers options for a full-HD AMOLED display and a model with a discrete 2GB Nvidia GeForce MX450 graphics chip. In the UK, the Envy x360 15 starts at £900 and in Australia it's AU$2,999. 

If you are considering this for content creation, you'll want to pay attention to the display used in the configurations. There are three different panels and the entry-level option has a smaller color range and lower 250-nit brightness than the middle option I tested. The latter covers 100% sRGB color space and has a max brightness of 400 nits, although it tested at 97% sRGB and 45% of Adobe RGB and P3 color spaces and a brightness of 382 nits. There is a higher-end 4K UHD AMOLED panel as well, but you'll have to switch from AMD to Intel for that.

The AMD Ryzen 7 gets you better performance for your money, though. You miss out on Thunderbolt 4, but the USB-C port does support a display and high-speed data. Plus, with an HDMI port onboard, you can easily connect up to a second external monitor if necessary, or get a USB-C dock for a single-cable desktop setup. You can also take advantage of the two-in-one design and flip the display into stand mode and give yourself a clean-looking triple-monitor workspace. While the Envy x360 15 is no workstation, it's enough for basic content creation tasks. (HP even has a mouse to help creators multitask.) Similarly, this configuration would only be good for casual gaming or cloud gaming services.

A lot of tools for work and privacy

Like other Envy models, the keyboard is wide and comfortable without feeling too mushy. The key legends are big and easy to read, too. The precision touchpad is smooth and responsive -- no issues there at all. On the function key row along with media controls and screen and keyboard-backlight brightness, you'll find shortcuts for blocking the webcam and muting the mic.

If you are one of the many taking a lot more video calls now, the last thing you want are loud fans whirring away in the background or, worse, fans that are constantly cycling on and off while you chat. It sort of comes with the territory for thin laptops like this Envy, but pressing the F12 key launches HP's Command Center to help you control cooling depending on if you want top performance or need to keep the fan noise to a minimum. 

The same app also lets you direct network bandwidth to specific applications while another app, HP Display Control, gives you calibrated color presets for whatever you're doing, such as photo or video editing. Then there's HP's QuickDrop feature, which lets you instantly send files, photos, videos, URLs and other things from your phone or other devices to the Envy x360 15.

Probably the most interesting option is HP's Enhanced Lighting app. It essentially uses the 400-nit brightness of the display as a ring light to help brighten your face for video chats. You can get a similar result by putting a blank Word doc on your display and cranking the brightness, but obviously the app makes it easier and you can adjust the tone from cool to warm. 

Battery life is long, too

You might think with this being a larger, more powerful laptop, battery life might suffer. It doesn't. On our streaming video test it hit 11 hours, 5 minutes, which is in line with what HP claims for the model. Of course, it's going to come down to what you're doing with it, screen brightness, volume, etc., but getting near 8 hours of mixed use is achievable. It also charges quickly with its included power adapter that uses a barrel connector. You can also charge it via its USB-C port. 

While HP markets the Envy x360 15 as an option for creators, you don't need to be one to appreciate it. It's a bigger laptop with some helpful hardware and software features, which makes it nice for working from home. At the same time, it's still a manageable size and weight for the occasional commute. Add in strong performance and a long battery life and you're getting a lot of laptop at a reasonable price.

Two minute review

The HP Envy x360 15 (2021) sits right in the sweet spot between the lower-end HP Pavilion x360 and the more premium HP Spectre x360 2-in-1 laptops in price, performance and specs, but it isn't some undercard contender. The HP Envy x360 15 (2021) is one of the best 2-in-1 laptops of the year, even if it isn't the best choice for everybody.

The HP Envy x360 15 (2021) is well built, but there's nothing especially striking about the design. It is an HP laptop, after all, but it looks decent enough. The touchscreen display, on the other hand, is fantastic – even if it isn't a fancy 4K OLED. With up to 400 nits of brightness, the HP Envy x360 15 (2021) looks great inside and outdoors sitting at a coffee shop or – we imagine – on a work site.

Using the Envy x360 15 in tablet mode isn't the most natural feeling experience you can get with a 2-in-1. You can flip the screen on some hybrid laptops and feel like you're holding an iPad running Windows 10, but the HP Envy x360 15 (2021) is not that kind of laptop. 

It will never really let you forget what it is, and though Windows 10 tablet mode itself ran just fine, the laptop's weight and noticeable bulk when being used as a tablet might put some people off.

The HP Envy x360 15 truly shines in its performance, though, making the most of its powerful Zen 3 Ryzen CPU and absolutely running away with the 2-in-1 crown in nearly all of our benchmark tests. 

The Radeon GPU-equipped Envy x360 15 outperforms its rivals running Intel Iris Xe and in some cases by a substantial margin. Where things were closer, the Envy x360 15 still came out on top and while it's battery life isn't the absolute best we've seen recently, it's definitely high up on the leaderboard if not on the actual podium.

So, the HP Envy x360 15 (2021) is already one of the best HP laptops we've seen this year, but when you factor in the incredible price-to-performance ratio, you've got one of the best values for a 2-in-1 laptop going. 

Price and availability

Spec Sheet

Here is the HP Envy x360 15 (2021) configuration sent to TechRadar for review:

Size (W x D x H): 14.13 x 8.98 x 0.72 ins (358.9 x 228 x 18.28 mm)
Battery: 51WHr

The HP Envy x360 15 (2021) is available now with both Intel Tiger Lake and AMD Zen 3 mobile processors. There are lots of configuration options on HP's site to better customize it to your needs, but the starting configuration for the AMD models – which only have the option for the 15.6-inch, full HD (1080p) WLED display, some with only 250 nits of brightness – features an AMD Ryzen 5 5500U processor with Radeon graphics, 8GB RAM, and 256GB PCIe SSD storage for just $659.

The base model for the UK, starting at £850, features a larger 512GB PCIe SSD, but a last-gen AMD Ryzen 5 4500U processor, which will have lower multicore performance than the 5500U upgrade if you have the option and the budget for it.

Australia's base model uses the same Ryzen 5 4500U CPU as the UK model, but comes with 16GB RAM instead of 8GB and sticks with the smaller 256GB PCIe SSD, starting at AU$1,999.

The configuration we tested here at TechRadar, meanwhile, sells for $999 in the US and isn't available in either the UK or Australia, though you can buy an Australian model very similar in specs to the one we tested, only with a Ryzen 7 4700U, for AU$2,499.

Design

As we said earlier, the HP Envy x360 15 (2021) is an HP laptop aimed toward the more professional, enterprise crowd, so it doesn't take a whole lot of risks with its design. Still, the design is well-built with an aluminum alloy chassis that helps it feel sturdy, if heavy, and a more attractive darker metal tone than the HP Envy x360 15's Intel models.

The HP Envy x360 15 (2021) is also a bit beefier than some other 2-in-1s. It's 0.72 inches / 18.28 millimeters thick and weighing in at 4.11 pounds / 1.86 kilos, so it's definitely not the most portable 2-in-1 we've seen, but it's not the worst offender in this regard either.

We're talking about integrated graphics here, so the HP Envy x360 15 (2021) isn't loaded up on heat vents and the small air intake grill on the bottom didn't get noticeably warm while we used it over a couple of weeks. The downward firing speakers are a perennial complaint, but at least here they aren't the only speakers.

The keyboard deck manages to squeeze in two additional top-firing speakers  on either side of the keyboard, which does help with the Envy x360 15's sound quality, though it's still a 2-in-1 laptop speaker system. It'll fill a living room with The Sword's "Used Future" while you're cleaning up without much trouble or handle video conference calls, but it's going to get easily drowned out by a vacuum cleaner.

Those two speakers do squeeze the keyboard itself somewhat, but we still found it comfortable to type on since 95% of the keys we use most often aren't really affected. It's the Home key, the Page up key, and the like that have to get moved around a bit on the side to accommodate the smaller space.

The keys themselves are comfortable to type on and have good travel, while the trackpad is decent enough, but nothing particularly special.

On the bright side, there are a good number of ports, including an SDCard slot, two USB Type-C ports, and an HDMI out port. There's no docked stylus, though, which is a shame. The laptop is thick enough for a 2-in-1 that it could definitely fit one in somewhere.

Our review unit didn't come with a stylus, but other models online bundle an HP Rechargeable MPP2.0 Tilt Pen with purchase of even the base models, so while that's definitely better than not having it, you will still have to keep track of the stylus yourself. 

Performance

Benchmarks

Here is how the HP Envy x360 15 (2021) performed in our suite of benchmark tests:
GeekBench 5: 1,194 (single-core); 6,531 (multi-core)
CineBenchR23: 8,043
PCMark10 Home: 5,457
3DMark Night Raid: 14,705; Firestrike: 3,564; Time Spy: 1,412;
Battery Life (PCMark10 test): 13 hours 11 minutes
Battery Life (TechRadar movie test): 8 hours 16 minutes

The Ryzen 7 5500U absolutely exceeded our expectations, racking up impressive benchmark scores and running noticeably smooth and snappy for the weeks we used it.

It absolutely holds its own against the more expensive 2-in-1's running an Intel Core i7-1165G7, like the HP Spectre x360 15 and the Lenovo ThinkBook 14s Yoga, beating them both in several areas like multicore performance, and costing much less as well. 

The one area where the Envy x360 15 fell short was in single core performance, where it scored 300 to 400 points less in Geekbench, PCMark 10, and other CPU single-core benchmarks against the Spectre and the ThinkBook 14s Yoga. That isn't unexpected though, since Intel processors typically do better in single core performance but – as was the case here – AMD's Ryzen processors blow their rival's Intel chips away by 2,000 to 3,000 points whenever multi core processing or integrated GPU performance is measured. 

We were also surprised to see how well the HP Envy x360 15's Radeon graphics handled both benchmarks and real-world use. No, you really won't be able to run the best PC games on the Envy x360 15, natively, and without issue, but we've played Valheim with worse specs, for sure.

The Envy x360 15 also made short work of our Blender benchmarks, chewing through both Fishy Cat and Classroom renders in less than half the time as the ThinkBook 14s Yoga, making the Envy x360 15 a good option for creatives who are working with a really tight budget.

Battery Life

Battery life is another area where the HP Envy x360 15 (2021) excelled. With a 51WHr battery, we expected it to make it through at least a full workday on a single charge and found it did a little bit better than that, making it just over 13 hours in our PCMark 10 battery test. This is a little under five hours longer than the ThinkBook 14s Yoga and about 20 minutes longer than the HP Spectre x360.

It didn't do as well in our HD movie test though, making it just over eight hours and 16 minutes, but this is only about 20 minutes less than the ThinkBook 14s Yoga lasted in its HD movie test. And eight hours is still a lot of video, more than enough to last you through a transatlantic flight, now that those are starting to be a thing again.

This year’s HP Envy x360 is a big deal.

Traditionally, the Envy line has been HP’s midrange option; it’s a rung above the budget Pavilion, but a rung below the flagship Spectre. This model, which starts at $699, really blurs the latter line. It’s easily the best laptop under $1,000 that you can buy right now. Not only does the 2020 Envy x360 look as nice and perform as well as last year’s Spectre x360 (which starts at $1,099), but using it also feels quite similar to using HP’s $1,500 Elite Dragonfly, one of the best business notebooks on the market.

A big part of that is its processor. The new Envy can come with a few different AMD Ryzen 4000 chips. My $799 review unit has the Ryzen 5-4500U, along with 8GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD. (It’s also equipped with Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0.)

The six-core 4500U is intended to compete with Intel’s U-series Core i5, but its performance is comparable to that of an i7. It flies. Throughout my everyday browsing and streaming, as well as my fairly heavy load of office work that includes around a dozen apps and Chrome tabs with occasional downloads, Zoom calls, editing photos, and copying files, everything was smooth with no sign of slowdown.

Good Stuff

  • Compact and sturdy build
  • Good keyboard
  • Strong gaming performance for integrated graphics
  • All-day battery life

Bad Stuff

  • No Thunderbolt 3 or HDMI
  • The 16:9 screen is the bane of my existence
  • There’s some bloatware

Buy for $749.99 from HP

Even more impressive are AMD’s integrated Radeon graphics, which can handle some gaming. I was able to run Overwatch at 1080p at an average of 70fps on Medium and 62fps on High — both were quite playable. (The keyboard did get uncomfortably hot, though). Those results are comparable to what you can expect from a lower-powered discrete GPU like a 10W GeForce MX150. It’s impressive stuff for integrated graphics.

The system did not prove as well-optimized for video editing, unfortunately. I attempted to run our routine video test (which involves exporting a five-minute, 33-second 4K video) multiple times using hardware acceleration, and Adobe Premiere Pro consistently crashed during the export. Disabling the hardware acceleration in Premiere and relying solely on software got the job done, but it took an hour and 15 minutes. So if you’ll need to be working with Premiere Pro for video on the go, don’t buy this (at least until Adobe fixes that problem).

It’s not just the Envy’s chip that stands out; it’s the combination of the chip and the chassis. AMD processors have mostly been fodder for budget and midrange laptops for the past few years. It’s been uncommon to find an AMD chip in a premium option (in the vein of Lenovo’s Thinkpad Carbon, the HP Spectre, or Acer’s Swift 5). That’s what’s so exciting about this laptop: It pairs the Ryzen 4500U with a high-end design that looks and feels premium.

This is the nicest-looking Envy I’ve ever seen. Next to last year’s model, this one has a sleeker and chicer vibe. A big part of that is the display: the 2020 Envy has an 88 percent screen-to-body ratio, compared to 79 percent on last year’s model. Twenty-four percent has been shaved off the top bezel’s size, and while HP hasn’t fully eliminated its bottom bezel (as Dell virtually did with the most recent XPS 13), it has sliced off over 13mm. The result is that HP has been able to cram a 13-inch display into a much more compact footprint: the chassis is over 17mm shorter.

The displays on HP’s midrange laptops have knocked it out of the park in the last few years, and this Envy is no exception. The 13.3-inch 1080p display doesn’t have the contrast that you’ll see on higher-end laptops like the Spectre, but it’s certainly better than I’d expect from an $800 device.

HP sells 300-nit, 400-nit, and 1000-nit options, which all have 1080p resolution. You may want the brightest configuration if you plan on doing work outdoors, but the 400-nit version, which I tested, is just fine for indoor use. Colors are excellent, details are crisp, and I never had problems with glare, despite the panel’s glossy texture. The screen also supports HP’s MPP2.0 pen, though there’s no place on the laptop itself to store it when not in use. One thing to note: it is a 16:9 screen, so you won’t have as much vertical space for web browsing and document work as you would with a 16:10 machine like the Dell XPS 13 or a 3:2 laptop like the Surface Book 3. It’s perhaps the one demerit I can make against this display.

The Envy isn’t the lightest 13-inch laptop around at 2.9 pounds — I wouldn’t have wanted to carry it around with one hand or use it as a tablet for long periods of time — but the plus side is that it’s quite well-built and sturdy. There’s almost no flex in the screen or deck, and the whole aluminum chassis feels polished and professional. Holding it feels more like holding the Dragonfly than many midrange competitors. To nitpick, the hinge is a bit loose; occasionally, when I was trying to use the Envy with the screen tilted far back, it would inadvertently slip into tablet mode. This is far from a deal-breaking problem, of course.

The company has added a few hotkeys to the keyboard. There are kill switches for the microphone and webcam. F1 brings up Windows 10 online support, F4 toggles the keyboard’s backlighting, and F12 conjures the HP Command Center where you can adjust the Envy’s thermal profile (more on that later). There’s a learning curve here — I unintentionally bricked the mic a couple times — but each key has an LED indicator to help track what’s on and off.

The keys themselves are both firm and quiet, with a smooth and comfortable texture. It’s an excellent keyboard. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, typing on it feels like typing on the Dragonfly.

For ports, there’s a microSD slot, two USB-A, and a USB-C (no Thunderbolt 3, sadly). High-end laptops this thin often eliminate USB-A ports, but HP has managed to squeeze them in with trapdoor hinges that cover the bottom half. I like this selection because plenty of people still own older peripherals that use USB-A. In a perfect world, given the lack of Thunderbolt, HDMI would be on my wishlist.

The Envy comes with stereo speakers and a Bang & Olufsen audio control center. There, you can swap between presets for Music, Movie, and Voice, as well as equalizer settings for different tunes. The speakers sounded good (as laptop speakers go), and I didn’t mind watching videos or playing Spotify without anything external plugged in. The Voice profile even helped mitigate some background noise during Zoom calls.

As mentioned earlier, the Envy was often warm but never noticeably hot during my daily office work. Only during gaming was it uncomfortable to the touch. In HP’s Command Center, you can change the Thermal Profile. There’s HP’s Recommended preset, Comfort (to keep things cool), and Quiet (to keep the fans down). I mostly used HP’s Recommended setting for my daily tasks, and while I could usually hear a bit of a dull whine if I listened for it, the fans weren’t audible from a few feet away. (They’re quite loud on Performance, of course, which you’ll want to use for the best gaming results.)

Battery life is also good. With brightness around 200 nits, and with power and fans on HP’s recommended profile, I averaged about eight hours on a charge. That should get you through a workday and is longer than we got with the latest Spectre x360. (Of course, mileage will vary with more demanding tasks.)

Finally, bloatware is sometimes a concern on sub-$1,000 laptops. The device does come with some preinstalled, including McAfee, ExpressVPN, and Candy Crush, which you may want to dump to free up storage. But refreshingly, I didn’t encounter intrusive pop-ups or any other annoying stuff.

Reviews of budget and midrange laptops are often a question of what you’re trading off for that lower price point. I’ve pointed out some places where the Envy doesn’t quite measure up to the best laptops on the market (the dimmer screen, the wobblier hinge, the aspect ratio, the video editing troubles), but the only reason we’re even having that discussion is that this laptop feels like it’s competing with the top of the line. Between the Envy x360 and other $800 laptops, there’s no contest. This is aiming at the big leagues; this is a Spectre.

The thesis of this review is that I have almost no complaints. This is a superb computer, and it’s frankly bizarre that it’s only $800. Don’t buy last year’s Spectre. Buy this.

After that, we had a couple more partners and each time we return after a group sex or sex on the side, our feelings of love for each. Other are strengthened and marital sex becomes brighter. In the kitchen Alena easily found a Turk and a can of aromatic coffee. Feeling a little uncomfortable, she looked around the room and found a small apron hanging on a hook. Putting it around her neck and tying the ribbons behind her back at the waist, Alena felt her nipples rub against the hard fabric.
