The HP Envy x360 15" is a versatile laptop with a convertible 2-in-1 design, which allows it to be used as both a laptop and a tablet. It has a lower midrange price and offers an OLED touchscreen with a standard resolution, suitable for general use and media consumption. The AMD Ryzen 7 processor coupled with ample RAM makes it a good candidate for everyday tasks and can handle some more demanding applications. Its portability is considered good, given its reasonable weight and battery life, which supports typical usage for a decent duration. Additionally, this laptop features a backlit keyboard and a number of USB-C ports, enhancing its functionality and ease of use. However, it may not be the best option for intensive gaming or heavy engineering tasks, as it lacks dedicated high-performance graphics capabilities. Overall, the HP Envy x360 15" could be a good fit for users seeking a combination of performance in everyday tasks with the flexibility of a tablet. Give Feedback

Ratings by Category

Operating Noise:
4.6
PerfectRec’s Operating Noise Score is based on fan noise measurements. Laptops with a fanless design, such as Macbooks, receive the maximum score.
General Use:
4.5
The HP Envy x360 15" is well-suited for general use thanks to a capable processor and ample RAM, which ensure smooth multitasking and productivity. The OLED touchscreen offers high-quality visuals with wide color coverage, and the device's good battery life and portability make it versatile for various everyday tasks.
Content Creation:
4.5
PerfectRec’s Content Creation Score takes into account the many different features of the laptop that make it more or less suitable for photo editing, and video editing work. In addition to a strong emphasis on overall performance, this score also places very high importance on screen quality. Heat management, storage, keyboard and speaker quality are also incorporated, with fan noise rounding out this score.
General Use Screen Quality:
4.5
The general use screen score is based on the screen technology, contrast ratio, resolution, brightness, color gamut and color accuracy. This score does not take into account specialized display features for specific use cases, such as high refresh rate for gaming.
Battery Life:
4.4
PerfectRec’s Battery Life rating is based on hours of battery life in typical usage scenarios.
Software Development:
4.3
PerfectRec’s Software Development Score takes into account the many different features of the laptop that make it more or less suitable for software development. In addition to a strong emphasis on overall performance, this score also places very high importance on screen quality.

Portability:
4.3
PerfectRec’s portability rating takes into account the volume and thickness of the laptop as well as its weight.
Engineering & Design:
4.2
The HP Envy x360 15" is good for engineering and design due to its capable AMD Ryzen 7 processor and integrated Vega 8 graphics, ample RAM for multitasking, and a high-quality OLED touch-sensitive display with wide color coverage and high contrast for detailed visual work. While the device is portable and offers good battery life, its weight and dimensions reflect a balance between screen size and carrying convenience; the keyboard and speakers are also commended for their quality, contributing to an overall solid build suitable for engineering tasks.
Build Quality:
4.1
PerfectRec’s Build Quality Score incorporates case materials, display and keyboard flex, hinge quality, chassis rigidity, and overall reliability. Our assessment of build quality includes many details that are difficult to quantify. Our laptop experts use their best judgment to produce the final score.
Keyboard Quality:
4.0
The Keyboard Quality score is based on the PerfectRec experts’ assessment of tactile feedback, typing comfort, keyboard reliability and typing noise.
Gaming & AI:
3.6
The HP Envy x360 15" has an integrated GPU which is less powerful than dedicated gaming GPUs and a screen with a maximum refresh rate of 60Hz, which is fair for gaming but not ideal for high frame rate experiences. While its OLED screen delivers good quality visuals, the lower refresh rate might not be as smooth for fast-paced 3D games when compared with screens designed specifically for gaming.

CNET

Matt Elliott | January 2023
"Despite its good looks, stellar webcam and comfortable keyboard, the Envy x360 15 is hard to recommend because of its dim, 16:9 display. If the display isn't an issue for you, just be sure to wait for a good sale price. Otherwise, a more modern two-in-one with a 16:10 display such as the Dell Inspiron 16 2-in-1 or Lenovo Yoga 7i 16 provides a larger workspace without adding much to the size and weight of the system."
