Where should I start... Well, you probably watched bunch of "professionals" on YouTube reviewing the device, so I'm not going to spend much time going over same points over and over again, let me just focus on why I don't like this machine.
Design. Well overall look-and-feel doesn't matter much to me. PC is a tool, not a jewelry. There are some design flaws though. First, the touch pad - it is centered, which it probably shouldn't be. Ideally you want your fingers to rest on "F" and "J" keys, which are off-center, so your right palm always overhangs/rests on the touch pad. Even though palm rejection is good, it's very annoying when it doesn't do its job and you get an accidental click on an active element. USB C ports placement - there are two of them and they are both on the same side - which is not convenient. You would want to have one on each side, so that you can plug in the charger from anywhere. I suppose it's a cost-cutting measure (to not have a high power circuitry on the board), which I can't justify at this price point. There is a bunch of other small quirks that are annoying (all biometrics are inside, so when docked with lid closed - not usable, etc.), but not to the point to mention them in Amazon review, as they probably won't matter much for most of the people.
Screen is great, I have no complaints what so ever. I ordered highly praised "1 watt" FHD panel and I think it fits the laptop very well. To be honest I don't know why you want to have 4K on a 13 inch, just to crank up zoom to 300%, probably. I understand OLED is nice, but I don't see any need for it in a 13 inch laptop - lets face it, no professional will be doing photo or video editing on 13" laptop screen... I know there are some folks who do so, but that's for a consumer-grade footage from Sony RX0 or your DJI drone/GoPro, not for a footage from dual IMAX camera setup. I probably wouldn't even edit footage from RED on a 13 inch...
I wish screen was 3:2 (or at least 16:10), instead of 16:9, but that might be my preference for a particular usage scenario, although browsing the web on taller screens is usually more comfortable too.
Keyboard... is bad. I do have a bunch of laptops at my disposal and I notice significant downgrade in laptop keyboards year over year. I've seen some reviews saying that the keyboard on this thing is great, as it has 1 mm (or whatever) of travel - it might be great for 2020, when everything else is total junk, but compared to an almost 10 years old Dell Vostro - this keyboard just marginally okay. Although very same people would praise ThinkPad keyboard, so I guess they simply got their first laptop a few years ago and never dealt with 20+ years old mechanical IBM keyboards on ThinkPads. Overall, modern laptop keyboards are junk and getting worse every day, this is probably as good as it gets in 2020, apart from some gaming laptops that still offer mechanical keyboard. Oh yeah, and arrow keys are half-size, which is not usable, of course. If you ask me - I'd prefer the keyboard of my 2015 Yoga 900, which has shorter key travel, but full-size arrow keys.
Performance is good. These new 10 nm chips are actually surprisingly good. I have 1065G7 and it is pretty close in performance to 9750H, which once was (and maybe still is) in the "high-performance" category for mobile vertical. This new chip does lack 2 cores of course, which significantly impacts compilation times, but linear performance is on-par with the high-performance 9th gen.
Thermals are bad, though. Out of the box, installing bunch of Windows updates (100% on single core) it got seriously hot dead-center above the keyboard. Needless to say when I need to compile anything that takes more than 20 minutes on all 4 cores (which is more or less 100% of projects I'm working on) - I need to put it on the cooling pad to help with airflow. To be completely honest, I should say that it never shut down on me due to overheating, so thermal throttling is working well.
I also have WWAN in mine, which works well - very easy to setup: just put a SIM card in, let it install all "necessary" carrier bloatware and you are good to go.
Now, to the real problems...
Finger-print reader out of the box didn't work (Error 10, Device could not to start, bla-bla-bla..). Uninstall the driver and install one from Windows Update and you are good. It is a common problem with the Synaptics reader they used and some say that just resetting it in the BIOS helps, but in my case it didn't (and I don't know why it would, if installed driver is busted).
PSR (Panel self-refresh) does not work - the screen would occasionally turn black and will blink for every redraw, so you will have to disable it right away, until it happens half through your daily routine and requires a reboot. The whole point of PSR was to safe battery, so I'm not sure if this is an acceptable solution, given the advertised battery life. I have serious doubts it will be fixed with any driver update, as manufacturers these days roll out new products every half a year, immediately sending old ones to the trash bin with no support.
Finally, to top it off, they decided to use AX201 Intel's WiFi 6 chip, which is notorious for its wake from sleep (or rather not waking from sleep) problem. The workaround is to disable power safe mode for MIMO, which again impacts the battery life. Here some folks are reporting that latest driver from Intel directly (not yet on WU) fixes the problem, but for others even after update it's still an issue.
So, how good is the battery life, after all? See the screen shot and decide for yourself. I did 3 charges for it to accumulate some stats - discharged to 15% and recharge, then doing my usual business (IntelliJ IDEA, Visual Studio, Atmel Studio, Verilog, etc.). I guess if you will "hyper-mile" it by lowering the screen brightness, disabling keyboard back-light and throttling the CPU down to abysmal levels, while only surfing web - you may get better numbers, but if you really only need to surf web, why would you get 10th gen Core processor with Iris Plus? Just get a U-series or an Atom...
This leads me to the question of the target audience for this laptop. If you only need to use Word and Excel or surf the web - why do you need such a powerful CPU? If you are doing photo/video editing, you would want 15"+ screen, at least. For software development or any other near-IT business - keyboard is bad, unless you are die-hard vim fan and can't stand arrow keys for navigation. The only thing is probably light media tasks when docked - you get decent CPU and can use good external monitors, while at the same time allowing you to use the same laptop for light on-the-go usage. It would work out for me in exactly that scenario, if keyboard layout was a tidbit better, but unfortunately it is what it is... So, no, it goes to the pile of bad laptops over-hyped by kids from YouTube, sponsored by re-sellers/"manufacturers"...
Overall, these are very minor issues and this is a high quality product. As far as performance goes, I didn't have to push it, but it has a 10th gen i7 processor with 4 cores and 8 threads, which is really good. You shouldn't buy an ultrabook to play games or do any 3D modeling anyway, but I bet you could (just don't complain about thermals).
Amazing laptop. Hp has been improving so much these past couple of years with their products. The moment I unboxed this Laptop I immediately fell in love with it. You feel the quality of the cold aluminum and the slight heft of weight to it you can tell it is built with quality materials. I had an old 14inch Hp laptop from 2013 still stuck on Windows 8 so I decided to upgrade to this Laptop that I have been eyeing since it debut and I am pretty glad I waited for it. The spectre was gorgeous and still continues the amazing design. Love the fact that this is a two in one which adds so much versatility to it. It comes with a pen that's triple a battery operated.
