Sentiment Score 43%
Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following***:
The Inspiron 15 5502 excels in serviceability and expandability with its 2x SODIMM and 2x storage bays. Its integrated mouse buttons are horrendously spongy and shallow for an unsatisfying experience. Upgrading to the Core i5-1135G7 is recommended especially since you can skimp on RAM or storage.

Pros
  • Long battery life
  • Decent CPU performance
