Hands On: HP Envy X2 with Snapdragon 835

Posted on December 5, 2017 by Brad Sams in Hardware, Video Reviews with 43 Comments

Today HP and Qualcomm pulled back the covers on the new ARM-based PCs and one of the first devices is the Envy X2. I got to spend a little bit of time with the device and you can get a closer look at the hardware in the video below.

While we can’t do any serious testing with these machines, initially, they felt good for a first run device. What I mean is that they were responsive enough and should hold up well for most of your everyday tasks but don’t expect to be playing high-end games on these types of devices.

With battery life being stated at 20 hrs and standby time of 30 days, these are some serious claims by Qualcomm and HP. That being said, I’m highly optimistic about future ARM devices and hope that these machines live up to all their promises.
