As the name implies, the HP Spectre X360 is a 2-in-1 convertible. The flexible yet sturdy hinge allows the notebook to transform into a tablet.
The included HP Tilt pen stylus is a love-hate relationship. Yes, it’s a smartpen that definitely beats any normal stylus. But the button signal range and latency breaks the overall experience. It’s better to use your fingers and only use the stylus for drawing or signing.
The almost bezel-less makes for a wonderful viewing experience though slightly sacrifices in tablet mode. It’s hard to hold the Spectre X360 one-handed without accidentally touching the screen causing unnecessary actions. Holding it on the right part on a portrait is no problem thanks to the slightly thicker chin area but you’re out of luck if you’re holding it on the left side as shown in the image above or if you’re holding it in landscape orientation.
Once the laptop is flipped more than 180 degrees the keyboard is immediately disabled. The glossy screen definitely glares depending on the lighting condition but is reduced thanks to the AMOLED display’s 1000 nits brightness.
