amazon Dell XPS 9310 reviews
Design – Still number 1
To be most precise, this is a replacement Dell XPS 9300. Everything from looks, design to build quality, this XPS 9310 is identical to the 9300 that was released.
In terms of design, the entire body is finished with monolithic aluminum, accompanied by extremely sharp CNC cuts; the minimalist but “luxurious” design philosophy is always pushed to the maximum by Dell XPS laptops. The XPS 13 9310 still weighs only 1.2 kg, the same as the 9300, so if you are someone who does a lot of moving work, the XPS 9310 is still the number 1 choice.
Of course, the 9310 is still in the high-end Ultrabook segment on the market, so in terms of finishing quality, this machine is still number 1. The flex phenomenon does not appear in any of the machine’s components; aluminum material on The chassis is also carefully selected and built. In addition, the chassis is still reinforced with a layer of carbon fiber-like what Dell did on the 9300. Overall, in terms of design, if to compare it directly with the Macbook Air, I would choose the XPS 9310.
There are two reasons for me to choose the XPS 9310. Firstly, it’s really beautiful, really high-end and luxurious. Second, the screen is designed in a 16: 10 ratio, overflowing all four borders, which impressed me. That is enough!
Monitor – Shouldn’t be judged by parameters.
I have to admit, the screen parameters on the Dell XPS 9310 caused me a very confusing feeling. Of course, I had to measure the screen directly with the SpiderXElite bug before concluding.
All color ranges of the machine are well represented: 100% sRGB, 76% AdobeRGB, 80% P3, screen brightness up to 486.5 nits (quite close to the 500 nits announced by Dell). However, the problem is that the color deviation of this screen is very large, up to 4.11.
My experience on the screen brings satisfaction. Bold colors make perfect entertainment but are not suitable for high-precision graphics work. That is also true because the XPS 13 is almost born for entertainment and office work.
Of course, if you look closely, this screen cannot be the 13-inch Macbook Pro because the XPS 9310 is only equipped with a Full HD screen (there is a QHD version, but the price is much higher). But for the vast majority of office users, Full HD is already more than enough resolution to display clearly.
The rest, the remaining parameters of this screen are still the same as those of last year’s XPS 9300: 13.4-inch size and using IPS panels, 16:10 screen ratio overflowing all four edges to provide an immersive experience in terms of visual infinity.
In general, this is a screen in the form of “weak parameters, strong experience” I really can’t fault the Dell XPS 9310’s screen.
Performance – Don’t expect too much from Intel Tiger Lake
The version I’m experiencing is equipped with an Intel Core i7 – 1165G7 processor, 16GB of LPDDR4X RAM 4266 MHz bus, and 512GB of NVMe SSD, then of course, with basic office and multimedia tasks, this machine can easily perform without any problems at all. Word, Excel with many heavy sheets, content making, photoshop, image color blending, XPS 9310 can all be completed well.
However, the machine will generate quite a few problems when entering deeper tests. Typically when I test this machine with Cinebench R20. With the first run in the single-core test, the score came out about 517 points – this score is quite good. But the TDP is not stable, it always fluctuates between 14 and 20W, and the CPU temperature reaches 100 degrees Celsius. That is an alarming number for a thin and light Ultrabook.
In the first multi-core test, the core temperature also reached 100 degrees, but the TPU was stable at 18W; the score was also quite good, about 1500 points.
On the second test, the single-core score dropped significantly, only 467. TPU was still unstable, and the temperature still reached 100 degrees Celsius. The full-core results were still quite similar compared to the previous test. First, the TPU is about 18W and reaches 100 degrees Celsius.
The second test that I do on the XPS 9310 is playing games. This machine can completely pull the Fortnite game with the highest graphics settings, the average FPS for 55 to 60; the temperature reaches the threshold of 90 degrees Celsius. However, frame jerking happens quite often for users with this game. If I want the most stable Fortnite experience on the Dell XPS 9310, I will reduce the graphics settings to the lowest level.
In general, with the above “very alarming” test parameters, especially when stress testing, I recommend that you “shouldn’t work too hard” on this machine only high-end thin and light Ultrabook reference system.
Keyboard and touchpad cluster: This is the deciding factor that I will not buy it.
As a content creator, I have experienced a lot of Ultrabook models. The typing experience and the feeling of using the touchpad are almost the two things I appreciate the most on an Ultrabook model. Here is my feeling of using the keyboard and touchpad on the Dell XPS 9310.
Firstly, the keyboard cluster on the Dell XPS 9310 feels 90% similar to the second-generation butterfly keyboard on the Macbook. That is one of the typing sensations that I don’t like. Although it has a very good bounce and the layout of the keys is very reasonable, the key travel is quite shallow – less than 1mm, and I am not familiar with this type of key travel.
Second, the touchpad on the Dell XPS 9310 gives me a very bad feeling to use. Although I have updated all drivers related to the touchpad, the tracking ability of this touchpad is still extremely poor. In addition, the touchpad size is also quite small and covered with mate, so the ability to move and multitouch on this touchpad is really poor.
In general, for a high-end office Ultrabook, I was hoping that Dell would do the above two things well. But the Dell XPS 9310 let me down quite a bit.
Connectivity and battery life
Because it is a re-make version of the Dell XPS 9300, the number of ports on the Dell XPS 9310 is the same as its predecessor: 2 USB Type C ports that support Thunderbolt 4 protocol, one microSD card slot, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. Surely you will have to buy an additional conversion dock if you decide to stick with this machine for a long time.
I like that Dell equips this machine with an SD card slot, not a microSD slot as it is now. If I were allowed to choose between SD and microSD card slots, I would choose the SD slot because of my work needs and the popularity of this card.
As for battery life, according to the manufacturer’s announcement, the XPS 9310 can last about 8 hours onscreen. However, Intel ensures that this machine can operate “stable” at 28W of power in all cases, even when unplugging, so when I unplug the charger and turn on the best performance mode, the screen is bright about 50%. Only a Wi-Fi connection is on; the onscreen time of the Dell XPS 9310 only stops at about 5 hours, which is quite weak for a high-end Ultrabook.
I will decide not to buy it for three main reasons, including the poor user experience of the keyboard and touchpad assembly and poor battery life compared to an Ultrabook. The rest, to be fair, everything on the Dell XPS 9310 is quite comprehensive, from design, quality to perfection to the experience of using high-end Ultrabooks.
So who should buy this machine? Perhaps it will be fans of the beauty of XPS or those who require a beautiful, luxurious Ultrabook and, above all, lightweight, maximum convenience in moving. As for me, the Dell XPS 9310 is still not convincing enough and makes a big difference in the high-end Ultrabook segment.
