HP Spectre Review – Full Review & Benchmarks

HP Spectre Review – Full Review & Benchmarks

The top surface is made of aluminum with new HP logo on it. The new watermark of HP is in gold color which looks pretty amazing. The bottom surface is Carbon Fiber which is good but it doesn’t have flexibility like LG Gram. It is very easy to get internal parts. You have to remove rubber strips and a couple of screws. There is 8GB of RAM which is sorted on so you can’t replace it.

You will get 256GB SSD which is quite faster but if you want more than you can easily replace it. The hinges are very strong. The back portion is made of metal with gold finishes. The built quality is excellent. The display has some flex. The material is used to make this laptop is good but it shows fingerprints on it.hp spectre

The display 13.3-inch FHD IPS panel which is covered with gorilla glass. The display is bright and It is outdoor usable. The viewing angles are nice. The color accuracy is excellent so you can do color accurate work on it. I think they did an awesome job on display. At the top, there is 720p webcam which is decent.

The ports selection is nice. On the right side, you will find three USB C ports. Two of them support thunder bolt 3. There are an audio jack and USB A which is the external cable.hp spectre

The inside surface is made of aluminum. The keyboard on this thing is nice. It has 1.3mm key travel. It has backlit and keys are very responsive. The layout of the keyboard is good & the typing experience is also good. I think this is the best keyboard I ever used in ultrabook.



The trackpad is decent. It has glass surface on it. The tracking is not so good. The buttons are good but it skips sometimes. To be honest, I don’t like this trackpad.

The speakers are decent and well positioned. The sound quality is good but it is not loud. The sound has some bass. The maximum volume is kind of low on this machine.

The cooling system of HP Spectre is unique. They use the hyperbaric cooling system on it which is new technology and it helps to get this thing properly cool. So, when you are doing light work like emails, video streaming, MS Office & web browsing it doesn’t put a load on CPU. It handles temperature very well.hp spectre

But when you are doing video editing and playing some demanding games then it may put a load on CPU and fans are running but when you play more than 15 mins the fans get louder. The low demeaning games hit 55fps on 1080p resolution and lowest graphics settings. The modern demanding games hit 40fps which are not so good for better gaming experience.

The battery life of this HP Spectre is kind of low. It has a 38WHr battery and It gives 5 hours of regular usage which is very low for the ultrabook. You can use any of the 3 ports to charge this thing. It has a 45-watt adapter for charging.

This unit has very thin chassis. The display is awesome but it is not touch screen. The keyboard has backlit and very good key travel. It has comfortable to type. The trackpad isn’t so great. It skips sometimes while clicking. The speakers are well positioned but it not so good. The processor is 2.5GHz Intel Core i7-6500U.

The GPU is Intel HD Graphics 520 which allows low depending games very well but when you play modern demanding games it loses some frames. The RAM is 8GB LPDDR3 which sorted on, you can’t replace it. It has 256GB SSD which is little faster and easily replaceable. It has a 38WHr battery and it gives 5 hours of regular usage. This HP Spectre costs you around $800.

In my opinion, I think HP did a fantastic job. I really like this ultrabook. I don’t like some of this features like battery life, speakers and trackpad otherwise this is the ultra portable and super thin ultrabook. If you want to do video editing on this then you should purchase Intel i7 model with faster drives. Otherwise, for regular usage and for a student this is a good choice. I think it is worth it!

That’s it for this review. I hope you will like it. Thumbs if you did and share if you love. Leave your thoughts below and tell me if you like HP Spectre or not? and you’re gonna purchase this or not? And if you purchase this then tell me which features you liked about it. I love to hear from you.

Super thin & well-built ultrabook!

The top surface is made of black aluminum, which is very smooth & different material from last year model but is shows fingerprint on it. On the top surface, it has green-lighted Razer logo. The bottom surface is made of same material. At the bottom part, there are some intake vents & rubber strips, which allows air circulation. This is the best-built quality ultrabook I ever used.razer blade stealth

The display is very rigid & less flex. The hinges are very solid and perfectly tuned. It is one-handed open. The display is 12.5” Quad HD Touch Display. The resolution is 2560*1440. The bezels are very thick. The viewing angle & contrast of the display is excellent.

The color accuracy is also awesome. You can do the color accurate work on it like video editing & photoshop. The screen is glossy and it also shows some reflections but the display is bright enough so you can use this outdoors.razer blade stealth

The webcam is good and it is 2MP. It is very sharp & image quality is good.

The keyboard chassis area is little flexible. The material is same here and it leaves fingerprints on it. The keyboard is Razer Chroma. You can change the color of particular every key from the software. The keyboard has anti-ghosting it means once you press any key, it lights all keys.

So much fun from the keyboard side! The key travel is short but I feel good trying. If you are not comfortable with short key travel, it takes the time to get comfortable. The layout is good. The typing experience is also good.

The trackpad is good. It is made of glass, which I like most. The texture is good. The tracking is not so good because it skips sometimes. The buttons are smooth and very responsive.

On the right side, you have USB C, which supports Thunderbolt 3, which you using to charge this laptop and you can also connect external GPU. Next is USB 3 and audio jack. On the other side, HDMI port & a single USB 3 port. There is no SD card slot.razer blade stealth

It is very easy to get in internal parts. There is 8GB RAM which is sorted on the motherboard so you can’t upgrade it. You have to stick with 8GB RAM! Storage drives are replaceable. The drives are very slow. The write speed is relatively slow. So, in my recommendation, you should replace this with faster drives.

The gaming performance is good, not excellent because of integrated graphics. But still, you can play low-end games at 53-55 FPS at lowest graphics on the 1080p screen. For demanding games are also playable at 42-45 FPS, for better performance you should low the graphics and resolution. High-end games re not playable on integrated graphics.

If you want to play games very smoothly you should go for Razer Core, which is external GPU. You can boost graphics and play games very smoothly. For that, you have to purchase Razer Core, put your favorite video card into it and you are ready to go! So, this is the option for gaming.

The battery performance is excellent. It has a 45WH battery. It requires 2 hours to get a full charge. For normal daily usages it gives 6-7 hours of battery life and for gaming, it gives 1-2 hours of battery life.

The speakers are not so good. Speakers are on the both sides of the keyboard. The sound is not loud and the bass is also bad but at maximum volume, sound doesn’t distort.razer blade stealth

The Razer Blade gets very hot because of GTX 960M and super thin design but this model has low volt CPU & integrated graphics, it stays cool. Overall this device is thermal comfortable.razer blade stealth

The fans are good. It cools system very well. Under full load, fans are very quiet.

HP Omen Review – Full Review and Benchmarks

ReaHP Omen Review – Full Review and Benchmarks

Super thin & well-performing gaming laptop!

The top surface is made of plastic with soft touch rubber coating on it. It has a diagonal pattern on it. To be frank, I don’t like soft touch rubber material because when it gets old, it loose scratches on it. So, built quality is okay. This laptop looks awesome. The bottom surface is made of plastics but there is no soft touch rubber on it. It has some ventilation ducts.

hp omen 15The screen is good & little flexible. Hinges are very tight and it is not one-handed open. Overall built quality is decreased compared to last year model & also price. So it is understandable. The display is 15.6 inch Full HD IPS UWVA anti-glare WLED-backlit & non-touchscreen.

The resolution is 1920 x 1080. The display is pretty bright. It has bad color accuracy & viewing angles. I think this is the worst display I ever used! But you can upgrade to 4K IPS display to get better results.

The webcam is 720p HD & It is good. It has real sense 3D camera for Windows Hello next to webcam.

The keyboard area has also a diagonal pattern on it. It has smooth surface instead of soft touch. At the top of the keyboard, there is a power button & speakers. The keyboard is good and it has red RGB lighting. Keys are good and key travel is also nice. It is very comfortable for typing. The number pad is at the right side of the keyboard. I like the keyboard.

The trackpad is weird because it is wide and comparatively small. Buttons are hard and need more force to click. Tracking is decent and it doesn’t skip while using it. The overall trackpad is good & I like it.

The sound quality is not so good. It is loud but when you have at nearly maximum volume then it gets distort. So, I don’t like the speakers.

The GPU is GTX 960M but you can upgrade it. The gaming experience is good. On the ultra setting, it crashes nearly 55-60 fps on demanding games. But for high-end games, on ultra setting, it crashes 40-45 fps. You have decreases graphics setting for high-end games. So, the overall gaming experience is good, but if you upgrade it to GTX 965M you will get awesome results.

The cooling system is good and fans are also good and it cools very well. But fan noise is little loud compared to other gaming laptops.

You have to remove a couple of screws to get into. There are 2 slots of RAM and it is upgradable. There are 2 slots of memory drive. One is for SATA drive & other is for M2 PCI, both are upgradable. 61WH battery and it requires 2.5 hours to get a full charge.

Apple Watch 2 Review: Virtually Perfect

Apple Watch 2 Review: Virtually Perfect

Excellent watch! I loved it!

Apple watch looks classy and modern compared to other smart watches. It has an aluminum case & very smooth rotating crown. Buttons are tactile and very responsive. The best part is, it’s a scratch proof. It looks pretty cool!

Sports band is included in the box so if you are using it as a fitness tracker then definitely you should use it with Sports Band. It’s a waterproof and 50m or 165feet underwater, I like this most because it’s a new feature and If we compare to the previous model, it’s only splash proof, not water resistance. So, this year model has some new and good features.

The best part is, the speakers are waterproof so when you play it then you will see it throws water out from speakers. So, this is another cool feature and the sound quality is also maintained.

apple watch 2

As I say, these bands are exchangeable. It is very simple to change the bands. On the other side, you will find a button near to band, just press it and wipe it out!

The screen is awesome. It’s too bright and you can use it in direct sunlight. It has in-built GPS tracker which it more accurate with compare to other smart watches GPS.

Another awesome feature, which I like most, is answering phone calls. You can answer the phone call from your wrist! The microphone is excellent and you can talk from your wrist if you are in the small room or silent place. But in crowd place, you have to put your wrist near to your mouth & ears for better communication. The sound of the microphone is very clear & loud enough. So, if you are in silent room or area then it works perfectly.

Notifications come through nicely. For the text messages, you can reply back or send quick responses provided at bottom of the screen and also voice to text. Voice recognition is excellent and works pretty well. It also provides scribbling which works great. But it is not for me! Because my finger recognition is not exact with Apple recognition. But it’s an option so without typing full sentence you can type it by voice and scribbling. So, it’s great & I love it! Emojis are also available.apple watch 2

The home screen is good and there are lots of good options for backgrounds, which are default, and you can download more. Swiping right-left is decent because you have to swipe edge to edge for perfect swiping otherwise you can’t swipe properly. I tried so many times to get perfection! But it is good because it prevents accidently changing of the screen. Swipe down to open notification bar.

Press the button to get all apps and it works great. You can also rotate that button and see some changes on your screen. It is best because you don’t need to swipe more and more for apps. If you press the button long time then it enables Siri, which is great. You can also quit the app which running in the background or you forget to close that app. below the crown allows you to close the app.

As a fitness tracker, Apple watch is almost same compared to other fitness trackers. But Apple gives you some more interesting things on it. It gives you complete information of calories you burn, steps, movement and much more. You can see all your activity on a color chart. The movement throughout the day is indicated by Pink Color, Green color for exercise and how much you have been staining is indicated by light blue color.

Read More: JBL Flip 3 Review

When you log into Run and it gives you a timer and BPM with sense your heartbeats, which is enough data but if you need more like bar chart and line chart of the activates you should try 3rd party app. Because this feature is missing in this watch.

Another awesome feature is accurate heartbeats tracking. As we know, most of the fitness trackers are not much accurate for heartbeats tracking, but this Apple Watch allows heartbeats tracking and it gives you more accurate results compare to another fitness tracker. This feature I like most in Apple watch!apple watch 2

The battery life is great. Apple claims 18 hours of battery life. To be frank, for regular usage, I got around 35-56 hours of battery life, which is awesome. It includes regular usage like fitness tracker, texting and checking notifications etc. These results you will get only when you don’t use it too much like check the time at every 5 mins, answering phone calls and listening music for a long time! [It doesn’t include this!] Otherwise you will get 18-19 hours of battery life that Apple claims. And if you don’t use it too much, then you will get around 2 days of battery life. It takes 2 hours to full charge.

In my opinion, I really enjoy Apple Watch Series 2. It gives you awesome look with awesome built quality. It is water resistance but not splash proof. You can use it 50m underwater. Waterproof speakers, which throw the water out from it. The bands are exchangeable. It is very easy to wipe it out. It also gives you sports band, which helps you while running and swimming. The screen is awesome and too bright. You can use it in heavy sunlight. Inbuilt GPS tracker is very accurate. You can answer the phone calls direct through the wrist. Notifications come nicely and allow you to reply, voice to text and much more. The home screen is good and it has so many inbuilt backgrounds. It allows accurate heartbeats tracking & very long battery life. It will cost you around $600.

So, If you are using Series 1 and want some more features then you should upgrade it. I know it’s over priced but it also gives you excellent features compare to other smart watches and fitness trackers. If you want only fitness tracker then this is not for you. You can try other fitness trackers. It is compatible with iPhone 5 and later. If you are Android user & other then iOS user then this is not for you. So, if you are looking for a smartwatch for your iPhone at this price rate then definitely you should try this one.

That’s it for this review. I hope you like this review. Thumbs if you like and share if you love. Leave your thoughts below and tell me you gonna purchase this or not and did you liked it or not which feature you like most? I love to hear from you!
