Hands on with the Snapdragon 835-powered HP Envy x2
« on: December 05, 2017, 10:45:28 pm »
Qualcomm has just partnered with Microsoft and launched a few laptops that run Windows 10 that are powered off their ARM processors. The question surfaces, "how good can it be?" While a Snapdragon 835 is plenty of CPU for a phone, how does it handle a desktop experience? While they run Windows 10, the models that launched on Tuesday - including the Envy x2 - run Windows 10 S. They will support Windows 10 Pro however. Take a look below and see how the Envy x2 handles real life.

   But from what I saw, the Envy x2 is a great 2-in-1 device. I'll be more interested to see how it runs on Windows 10 Pro, and how the performance and battery life changes when running emulated Win32 apps. After all, HP claims 20 hours of active battery life, and 700 hours of standby. Those tests tend to run apps that are optimized for battery life.Source: Neowin
