  • Beautiful AMOLED display
  • Excellent keyboard and touchpad
  • Good battery life
  • Not as powerful as the XPS 15
  • Not as bright as the Spectre x360 15


The 2020 HP Spectre x360 15 is considerably smaller than its predecessor, but still has the option for reasonably powerful components and a lovely OLED display. If you want a powerful laptop with the flexibility of a 2- in-1, then the Spectre x 360 15 is your best choice.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

, and that's by a hair. The touchpad isn't quite as outstanding, primarily because of its small size. If you want the Spectre x360 15's form factor with better battery life, then you'll want to opt for the version with a 10th-gen quad-core Intel Core i7-10510U CPU and the low-power 4K display. We wish the warranty was longer than a year.

  • Gorgeous 2-in-1 design

Reviewers from digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
The AMOLED version of the Spectre x360 15 offers the best display you can buy in a laptop. That will change soon, as the Dell XPS 15 and the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Extreme will also gain the same display. The 2-in-1 makes for a spectacular video binging machine, and it's faster than the typical laptop for creative professionals.

Reviewers from pcmag have found the following[***]:
The $1,849 Spectre x360 15 can certainly serve as a casual gaming machine. Its AMOLED screen, the 4K worth of pixels to push, and powerful hardware drain its large 72.9-watt-hour battery. Trimmer display bezels put it on par with some elite non-convertible 15-6-inchers.

  • Gorgeous 4K AMOLED display
  • Powerful Intel U-class processor
  • Good battery life
  • Somewhat heavy for a convertible
  • No Thunderbolt 3 port

Reviewers from pcworld have found the following[***]:
The HP Spectre x360 15 is a bit of a strange beast on the performance front. While it handles entry-level gaming fairly well, it's also prone to running hot. The laptop's 4K OLED screen is a joy to behold. Still, expect a high-end laptop's not quite the workhorse you'd expect.

  • Gorgeous 4K OLED screen
  • Sleek design
  • Comfortable keyboard
  • Middling battery life
  • No Thunderbolt 3 port
