Performance, battery life of the HP Envy x360 15-ew0002sf
The HP Envy x360 15-ew0002sf is a thin and light 15-inch hybrid laptop for everyday multipurpose use.
It relies on 16 GB of RAM associated with an Intel Alder Lake Core i5-1240P hybrid low-power processor with a TDP of 28W against the usual 15W. Thus it provides good overall performance to satisfy many users.
This core is particularly suitable for multimedia work that takes advantage of the RAM and the multi-core, such as photo editing or video conversion.
In addition, thanks to the Intel Iris Xe graphics module directly inserted in the Core i5 Alder Lake-P, you can watch photos and videos but also play modest games.
On the storage side, we find an SSD that rivals the standard hard drives in terms of capacity with its 512 GB while being silent, more energy efficient, more resistant to shocks and much faster.
As a result, the SSD guarantees a much better fluidity and reactivity in use compared to a simple hard disk. The start/stop are much faster thanks to an SSD for example, as well as the treatments and launching of applications, and one arrives more quickly on the cards of the online games.
As for autonomy, expect about 6 hours of battery operation in light use for this versatile 2-in-1 hybrid Ultrabook whose transport is facilitated by its controlled weight and its thinness.

HP Envy x360 15-ew0002sf chassis, connectivity, screen
With its thin and light natural silver aluminum design that can be opened 360° to transform into a tablet, this versatile hybrid laptop has a stylish, sober and original appearance.
The screen features multi-touch technology that allows you to interact with the system and software by simply placing at least one finger on it, using gestures/pressures.
The touch technology implies a brilliant treatment of the screen: it gives punch to the colors but is much more prone to reflections in bright environments (e.g. outdoors) than an anti-glare treatment.

In any case, those who appreciate videos and more generally High Definition content will appreciate that the screen adopts a 16/9 format associated with a Full HD definition, classic characteristics at this price level. It’s a pity that the colorimetry is standard, inferior to that of high-end IPS panels. Fortunately, its vertical and horizontal viewing angles are important.
Above the screen is an infrared webcam that allows biometric authentication by facial recognition.
When not in use, it can be hidden with the shutter, a useful feature to protect your privacy.
Entering numbers is more complicated than on the majority of 15-inch models equipped with a numeric keypad as standard, a feature that is absent here.
In any case, we appreciate being able to backlight the keys of the chiclet keyboard to better distinguish them in low-light environments.
Versatile, this 2-in-1 Ultrabook benefits from good connectivity including 2 USB 4 Type-C Thunderbolt 4, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to a monitor or a TV for example, Bluetooth 5. 2 and Wi-Fi 6E ax (more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ac) for wireless communication and remote connection, an audio port and 2 USB 3.0 (USB 2.0 compatible) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect USB 3.0 peripherals.
