HP Spectre X360 Laptop Review |After One year!|
Yes, i did even go ahead and answer you guys then and there, but i wanted to go ahead and let you know in this video and i’m very excited to make this video, because i’ve been having even more comments on how the laptop has been doing. How the reviews have overall, been doing on this laptop so i’m very very excited to make this video today now before we get this video started, i just want to let you guys know that this video kind of might be short and not so very detailed, because I did explain a lot when i first did the review of this laptop and also the six months later review. So this is just a year later same component, same structures just gon na be telling you guys how it all has been updated. How it’s all been doing so far and before we get this video started if you’re new to my channel hi, my name is maya. Of course i go by kitana. As you can see, my channel is called ketonology. I like to do tech, videos, makeup videos, overall, lifestyle, videos and, if you’re, not new, welcome back to my channel i’m so glad that you are here so let’s just go ahead and get started in today’s, video, okay. So the first thing i really do want to start off with first is the comments that i did write down on my tablet, and they were mostly the most asked questions like.
Oh my god guys. You have no idea. Of course, i love answering to all of your guys’s comments. So first question is: did you purchase the pen separately? No, i did not for the hp spectre. X360 laptop the pen does come with the laptop, is palm rejection good and does it work? Yes, of course, it does work, as you guys seen in my math note, taking in my, i believe it was art class taking video. I went and go ahead and show you guys how good palm rejection is. Palm rejection is really really good and you guys will see more examples later on in this video. Are you experiencing a lot of lags not at all me personally, i have not experienced any lags whatsoever. Of course, it would just have to be sometimes that the laptop is either loading but like glitches lags up to the point where i’m like this is happening too much. No, i have not experienced nothing like that. So far, i’ve been really really good without legs. Have you tried using any other brand stylist? No, i have not, and let me tell you why, because this is my personal opinion i don’t know if anybody thinks differently, which probably you do. I just like to use the stylus that come with the device, because i feel like no other stylist or it’s gon na be hard to find a stylist that is compatible with your laptop with your tablet, with your phone of course, phone and tablets.
I feel like they’re easier to find, but on laptops i feel like they have a certain type of stylus for it to work successfully. I feel like if you use a different brand that’s, where you start experiencing glitches, not so good palm rejection. Hp style is with hp, laptop microsoft, pro to a microsoft pro stylist, an ipad to an apple pencil, a samsung tab to uh s pen. So you get what i mean but that’s just my opinion. Can you multitask watch lectures while writing notes? Yes, you can because um – i remember that before i did have my desktop before i had my tablet. I was only with my phone and my hp spectre. First, i was worried because i was like oh no. I have a lecture that i have to watch, but i want to stick to my digital notes, so i did do the half and half screen where my half side was the lecture and my half side was my notes: no buggy at all. I really liked it. I feel like some people would be like how can you watch a lecture like this? I was very comfortable to be honest, can you upgrade your hp pen now? This is where i feel like. Yes, personally, you can because there’s two types of hp pens for this specific laptop, and that is the one that is battery operated, which is the one i have and the usb charging pen you can either upgrade to the battery operated or upgrade to the usb charging.
Me personally, i, like my battery, operated one. I just wouldn’t change it at all. How much was your laptop? My laptop was a thousand two hundred and ninety seven dollars and ninety two cents. Do you think the laptop can last a long time? Absolutely i feel like you can um it just really depends on how good you take care of it like i’ve mentioned before, i always take care of my devices like 100, so i personally feel like this laptop is going to last me a really really long time. If you want to tell me years five years, if you’re pushing it, maybe six or seven do you recommend a screen protector? This is where it’s a yes and no question, because it’s really up to you. I personally don’t have a screen protector on this laptop and there is no scratches. There is nothing like that when i’m doing my digital note taking the screen protector will not get in the way of your digital note taking, and it still helps with the palm rejection. Okay, so now we’re gon na go ahead and get started with the hp and i’m gon na be explaining it thoroughly on how it’s been good so far. Okay, so we’re gon na go ahead and start with the front of the laptop, and i do have the white hp spectre. X360, two in one laptop and as you can tell beautiful, with that hp logo that hp logo has not smeared on me or has not faded on me whatsoever due to the material that it’s made out of.
But of course it can get dirty sometimes so just make sure that you do clean it once in a while. Now i do have the gem cut design laptop. As i run my fingers through the sides of the laptop there’s, no dents there’s, no cracks, of course, because i do take care of my laptop. So as long as you’re taking care of your laptop, there should be no problems with edgings. Now you do have the bottom of the laptop, where you do have the protective gummies, which none of them have peeled off whatsoever. You do have your speakers on the sides, which are very very loud up to this day and you do have your cooling fan, which i will be explaining a little bit more in this video, because there are some pros and cons now on the left side of The laptop i do have the headphone jack, which i rarely use so that component is still successfully working. You can even use some cheap headphones and it will still work, and you do have your usb type, a protective port, which i really love the flap that the usb port came with because that’s. What makes the usb port very protective, as you can see in the next clip as i am putting the usb, the usb does not fall and trust me when i say i’ve put so many usbs into this port. That i’m surprised that this usb port has not gone loose, even the flap itself, it’s very firm when you take off the usb port, which is really really awesome.
Now on the right side of the laptop, you do have your micro sd card slot. I probably only use this about three times ever since i’ve had the laptop, but this component, this port does work really really well now, right next to it, you do have your camera kill, switch. You guys don’t know how many times i have turned this on and off due to meetings whenever i don’t have any meetings i just like to keep it off, but the button still works successfully. Now, when it comes to these usb type c ports, they still work successfully when it comes to charging devices and, of course, with just overall charging, the laptop the usb ports have not had any dirt in them, because of course, i would clean them very often. Charging works successfully, the power button even works successfully. Every time you turn it on now again with opening the laptop i do have the 13 inch screen display and this screen has had no dents, no scratches no black spots and overall i’m, just very impressed for the way it’s been holding up honestly again. It all just depends on how you’re taking care of your screens, as you can see, touch screen has been working very well. There has been no lags and i’m just very, very happy on how good this laptop has been holding up, especially due to how many times i’ve been writing on the screen, how many times i’ve been using it for how long i’ve been using it so overall.
In conclusion, the screen still works. Amazing let’s, not forget about that 0.9 megapixel front camera, which records at 720p at 30 frames per. Second, as you will see an example in the next clip, okay guys. So this is the camera to the hp spectre laptop me personally. I feel like the camera is good. This is a 0.9 megapixel which i feel like it’s a little bit more high diff for it to be a 0.9 megapixel. I might be wrong in that sense, but that’s what i did find out and research. I did try. Some previous recording to see how the audio was the audio is good again it’s, not that great, but it’s not like we’re up to the point where it’s like no, you can’t talk at all, but i feel like the audio it’s good um, especially if somebody wants To listen to you on a video chat on meetings for work or for school, you know like um lectures and i feel, like you have to talk during class. I feel like it’s good, so yeah. Let me know what you guys think in the comments. If you have any more questions about the camera, please let me know now moving on to the keyboard of this laptop, if you guys have seen all of my previous videos, you guys know how amazing i feel this keyboard is on this laptop, very satisfying, very comfortable. No keys have been misplaced, no keys have given me any trouble.
No keys have faded away whatsoever, especially me typing, for so much on this laptop. So trust me, everything still works great and, of course, backlit is brighter than ever. This bright light backlight has not faded on me whatsoever, especially with the three settings. As i mentioned before, you have the brightest mid, bright and completely off. So no settings have been dimmed whatsoever. It is still very bright in the night time now with the mouse pad. I was very impressed because i don’t know if you guys have seen my previous videos on how i showed you all the gestures that you can do with the mouse pad gestures have still been working successfully, which i really really like, as you can tell when i Zoom in and zoom out, it’s still very nice and smooth. I have not had any lags with the mouse whatsoever and i’m, just very, very impressed on how good it still is and on the bottom of the mouse pad. You do have your left and right click which i have had no problems with no stickiness, no roughness overall it’s, still good. Now, right next to your mouse pad, you do have your fingerprint scanner. I’M, going to be honest, the fingerprint scanner does make me have a hard time when logging in with the fingerprint scanner. It mostly asks me for my pin, but for some reason, while i was filming it was working successfully, but i just wanted to let you guys know on that, because it does have a little bit of a trouble.
Sometimes now you do have these protector gummies, which helps you whenever you are writing on your screen. I’Ve been having so many comments where it asks me aren’t. You worried that you’re gon na smash your keyboard and mouse pad because you’re putting pressure when you’re writing on the screen. No, i do not because that’s what those gummies are for and those gummies have held up pretty nicely and that’s. Why my keyboard and mouse pad haven’t messed up, because, thanks to those gummies now, as i mentioned before, you do have your eight gigs of ram on this laptop always fast to me. I really really am impressed on how fast a laptop has been going. You do have your intel core, i7, 10th gen processor and intel iris, plus graphics, as you can see in the videos really really nice graphics still holds up to this day. I just really am impressed on how hp really did put in their graphics into this laptop again battery life. I did mention it in my last video. It did go up to eight hours in battery life, but now after using it so much, i see that it’s now going from maybe six to seven hours. Due to how much i use it so make sure that you do have that charger in handy. For that huge amount of time, so just make sure that you keep that in mind, but overall not disappointed. Now i was very impressed about this topic, and that is the rotating hinges.
The rotating hinges are still very strong. They are not loose whatsoever, i’ve been getting so many comments on how the hinges have been doing. Let me just tell you guys they are still very firm, very strong. You guys do not know how many times i’ve done 360 tent view due to all the schoolwork. All school note taking so i’m very, very impressed on how strong the hinges have been doing now. I’Ve been having a lot of comments asking me how the note taking has been doing. Let me just tell you a rate one out of ten. I give it an 11 because the note taking has been so good for me, as you guys seen in all of my previous note. Taking videos note taking, has been very successful. I have not had any issues. Everything just works amazing, as you can see through my notes. I just been loving this laptop, especially when it comes to me being an engineering major it’s been amazing for me. So far, and, of course, without beautiful notes, you do have the beautiful stylus that helps you make those beautiful notes. The stylus has still been working very successfully, the two buttons for the different types of gestures, the precision point, as i’ve mentioned so many times very comfortable and very easy to use. And yes, this is a battery operated one, as you guys can see. I do have batteries inside and the amazing part is the batteries did come with the purchase as well with the stylus.
The stylus does come with the laptop believe it or not. Those batteries are the same ones that i got a year ago and they are still working, which is awesome and the last topic i’ve been getting so many questions about is palm rejection. Yes, palm rejection still works successfully. I’Ve had no issues whatsoever, as you guys can see as i’m writing down very inspirational words, so please please appreciate it, but overall there has not even been scratches on the screen, so i really really love this for note taking. This is where i wanted to talk about the overheating. Now before i did get my new desktop. I was video editing on my hp spectre me personally. I recommend that you do not video edit on this laptop. If you have your eight gigs of ram and if you’re using flamora, i use flamora for my video editing and let me just tell you that’s what caused a lot of overheating. My laptop was going through a lot of um. I guess you would say stress – or it was just going through a lot of components when it was exporting what it was rendering that’s when the laptop started really really overheating, and it was just too much for it. So that’s, where the vent fan started going crazy and i feel like that’s what i did to cost my overheating. You can prevent that from happening. Don’T. Be me if you’re gon na video, edit on the spectre laptop, i recommend going up to the 16 gigabytes of ram just so you can avoid the overheating.
Yes, there are some programs that are like easier for the eight gigs of ram. But again that was just my personal opinion and my personal experience, okay guys, so that is it for today’s video.
