Dell Latitude 7320 Detachable: The Surface Pro 7+ Killer?
Well, i wanted to see what the latitude line from dell would have to offer and i just took delivery of the dell latitude 73. 20 detachable it’s, also a two in one surface, pro 7 plus competitor. That brings a lot to the table. You got a gorgeous 13 inch, full hd plus display you got the three to two aspect: ratio, a slim, all metal design and also has a keyboard cover that has a pen very similar to the surface pro x. It stores and charges in the keyboard cover we’re going to get into that and more in this video, hey everybody it’s andrew – and this is the dell latitude 7320 detachable coming up Music. Now, while we take a look at the specs in the interest of transparency in full disclosure – i’m not being paid by dell i’m, not being sponsored by dell, all the opinions you’re about to hear are my own dell is not getting copy approval. That means they’re. Seeing this video for the first time, just like you now, this review unit was provided by dell and once this review is done, i’ll be sending it back. Pricing starts at 1559, us i’ll leave a link in the description below for more information and where you can buy one and with specs and pricing. Out of the way let’s find out what you get inside the box, let’s open it up now inside the box. Of course, you get the unit itself we’ll get to that in just a little bit, but you also get a 60 watt very compact, ac adapter with a usbc cable, and you get the extension cord along with some warranty and setup information now holding this unit.
For the first time, this thin and light detachable has a really nice two tone finish: it’s, an all metal design that is very thin and light at only 1.7 pounds or 0.789 kilograms for the detachable alone. But once you add the keyboard cover and the pen, it adds a little bit more weight, we’re going to get to that in just a moment now the keyboard cover and the pen are separate purchases, and dell was kind enough to send that along for me to Check out to show you guys just exactly what you get now. This keyboard cover is very similar to the surface pro x keyboard, which has a places store in charge of the pen. Now the pen is a separate purchase they sent one over as well. As i mentioned now, the pen looks like a carpenter’s pen, just like the surface pro x. It has that flat bottom to it. It also is rechargeable in stores on that keyboard cover we’ll talk about that in a little bit use the wacom aes technology, which is great for taking notes, sketching out artwork we’ll, go over that as well. Also in this video and in the full review, you get a tip remover tool and some extra tips for the pen now you’ll notice. It has some really sturdy hinges and that metal kickstand really gives you a nice viewing angle each and every time. So far. Looking pretty good now, the connection to the keyboard cover is very sturdy, so you won’t be losing it anytime, soon, really rock solid.
In that regard. On the left side, you get your kensington lock port, a thunderbolt 4 port that does data charge display out. You can run multiple 4k monitors as well as one ak monitor. You have a speaker, grill your volume up and down, and a 3.5 millimeter headphone microphone combo jack on the right side. You get a second thunderbolt 4 port that does data charge, display out as well and a second speaker grill on the top. Is your power button and on the back? Is your fingerprint scanner? Okay, let’s talk about what i believe is the star of the show, and that would be its display and what we’re looking at here is a 13 inch full hd plus display it has a resolution of 1920×1280 and yes, that means this has a three to two Aspect ratio the same as a surface pro 7 plus it has really deep blacks, good white points, excellent contrast and a low delta e score of 1.65, meaning this is a color, accurate display. It also covers the color gamut really well: 98 srgb, 76 adobe rgb 79 of the dci, p3 wide color gamut and 71 ntsc, making this a great choice for content creators to do lightroom, photoshop and, of course, video editing. Now this has a low blue light filter which helps reduce eye strain and that’s. Of course, always good, and this is a super low power display, which means this is going to be very efficient when it comes to battery life.
We’Ll get into that in the full review, but we’ll talk about that in a little bit as well, because i’m seeing really good battery life. Now, as far as the display itself it’s a really bright display, which dell claims will get up to 500 nits and i actually measured 492 nits making this a really good choice for both indoor and outdoor use. Now it is a somewhat glossy display, but i didn’t notice a lot of glare or reflections. The viewing angles also are very good, and i also love the fact that it has slimmer bezels than the surface pro 7 plus giving it a sleek and modern look. Now. This also has pen support and, as i mentioned earlier, the pen is a separate purchase which uses the wacom aes technology stores and charges in the keyboard cover, as i mentioned, and it is great for taking notes sketching out artwork. I will do a more in depth. Look at it in the full review, but so far it’s working pretty well now it is shaped like a carpenter’s pen with a flat side, very much like the surface pro x, and it actually really is good. I, like the convenience factor of having the pen with you all the time, so this is the dell latitude 7320 detachable here for 2021, a 1080p webcam uh, actually pretty good. Let me know what you think about the video quality. Let me know what you think about the audio quality of the built in mics.
I am curious to know: we’ve actually been seeing some much better webcams uh. We saw with the hp elite dragonfly max, and now we have a nice webcam here with the dell latitude 7320 detachable again. Let me know what you think about it in that comment section below. So this is the rear facing camera and, as you can see my dog max – and you can see the background of my studio here – i have a lot more work to do in the studio of course uh. But this is the rear facing camera and you can see all the boxes in the back over there uh the rear facing camera on this uh two in one. So let me know what you think about it in the comments section below now that rear camera is an eight megapixel world facing camera and i would say, it’s decent for a two in one. I wouldn’t use it as your main camera, but it is actually pretty handy to have it in a pinch, so uh kudos to that and for those wondering here it is next to one of its competitors. The lenovo thinkpad x12 detachable, which i recently took a look at so i’ll, leave a link in the description below for those that didn’t check it out a really nice detachable, especially if you’re a thinkpad fan. Now i do prefer the keyboard cover on the thinkpad it’s. A little bit more sturdy a little bit more rigid and gives you more of that thinkpad like keyboard experience over the one you get with the devil, though the one with the dell is more akin to the one you get with the microsoft surface, pro 7 and 7 plus, but i do prefer the keyboard on that x12 detachable and speaking of that keyboard, cover really decent key travel, good tactile feedback and it is comfortable to type on for extended periods of time.
You could also raise it to get a nice typing angle, just like you can, with the surface pro 7 and 7 plus. It also has a multi stage backlight, which allows you to get work done in a dark room or a dimly, lit environment and that’s always good. Now the touchpad is working well, it’s a little bit undersized for my liking, although it is responsive, two finger scrolling is buttery smooth and all the gestures work as you’d expect. Now my unit is running the 11th gen tiger lake processor it’s, the low powered version, which is the core i7 1180 g7 with integrated iris xc graphics, not quite as powerful as its bigger brother, which would be the 1185 g7. So the numbers are not going to be quite as good but i’m not expecting the top performance on this because they went with a quiet experience. You will notice the fan kick in, but it is extremely quiet and won’t be a distraction to you. So they went for the quiet experience over the high performance experience and that will be good, especially for the business traveler on the go. So you won’t see the actual numbers. Be that great, although definitely good enough to do microsoft, office, email, web browsing consuming media, it all worked fine. Now my review unit has 16 gigabytes of lp ddr4 xram that’s soldered into the motherboard there’s no chance for you to upgrade that on your own. So make sure you get enough ram for your needs.
It also has 256 gigabytes of pcie nvme, ssd storage. I don’t think that’s user accessible either i’m, not sure if there’s a way to get inside this laptop so make sure you get enough storage for your needs. When you check out and speaking of that storage here are the reads and writes that are included with that 256 gigabyte, nvme ssd drive, the 7320 detachable has a 40 watt hour battery and my initial testing so far is showing over 11 hours on my continuous web Surfing test over wi fi at 150, nits again, i need to do further testing but you’re, looking at anywhere from eight to nine hours on what i call mixed use, but of course your mileage may vary depending on the task at hand. So please keep that in mind. It has wi fi six, along with bluetooth, 5.1 and both so far working really great. Now it also has the optional 4g lte. You can get it with a qualcomm snapdragon x20 lte, a modem and that’s great for the business traveler, who needs an always on connection on the go and that’s going to help, certainly with productivity. Now, of course, this is an option. It doesn’t come standard. You will have to pay extra for that modem and i didn’t see any option for 5g at least not yet now. As far as the sound is concerned so far i would say: they’re adequate they’re average at best they’re, two side firing speakers and i would say they get loud enough.
But again, i think, having a nice good pair of headphones would enhance the audio experience than rather relying on those two speakers i’ll test them more in my upcoming full review, to give you some more info, okay, so far, 24 hours in what do i think about The dell latitude 7320 detachable as a surface pro 7, 7 plus alternative. I got to say i really do like it, especially with that slim all metal design. I, like its bright vivid 13 inch display really comfortable keyboard cover, and i love the fact that the pen stores and charges in the device and speaking of the pen working really well so far for taking notes sketching out artwork. I like the dual thunderbolt 4 ports. I like the option for the 4g lte, although would be nice to have a 5g option. Who knows? Maybe that will be coming soon and the decent performance, although not world class performance, especially when they are going for a quiet experience with that low fan noise, which is really good now, the things i’m not crazy about, of course, is that there’s, no user, upgradability there’s. No sd card reader and it can get expensive, although it is on par with the surface pro 7 plus for business users, but no real deal breakers here so far. Ladies and gentlemen, i have to do my full testing and i will bring you my full review. Coming very soon so stay tuned. So what do you think about this bad boy? The 7320 detachable from the latitude line uh dell sent this over and i’m actually pretty happy.
They did. You like, i like that two tone finish here on this metal thin light versatile device very similar, of course, to the microsoft surface, pro 7 and 7, plus very similar in a lot of regards. There are some differences, of course, really nice webcam on this got a facing 5 megapixel, 1080p webcam. You got an 8 megapixel world facing rear camera that has actually produced pretty nice, video as well decent shots as well. Of course, it’s not going to replace your high end smartphone in terms of the camera, but definitely handy to have this on a device like this uh battery life is looking good so far, as i mentioned, with that 40 watt hour battery i’m, seeing 11 plus hours On my continuous web surfing test eight to nine hours, i think with mixed use again, i need to do further testing as far as performance again, like i said, they’re going with a quiet performance here – very low fan noise. Of course, that’s good. If you’re a productivity person, a business user, you want to keep it quiet optional. 4G. Lte on this, of course, is great when you’re on the go and you’re on a business trip, and you need to have that always on connection. This can certainly uh give you that, of course, that’s optional it’s not standard. I don’t know about 5g, as i mentioned. Hopefully that will be coming soon, not user upgradable, but neither is most of these type of devices uh user.
The ram is not user upgradable. The ssd is not user upgradable, wi, fi, six, bluetooth, 5.1, all working well but i’m curious to know what you think. Let me know in the comment section below now: it’s, not cheap. It is expensive, but, like a lot of these business focused devices uh, they will tend to buy these in bulk and we’ll get a discount from dell. So keep that in mind so please hit the like button.
