HP Spectre 13

In 2011, after the release of the overwhelmingly popular MacBook Air, Intel set out on a journey to subvert all preconceived notions of what a Windows laptop should be. Up until that point, Microsoft-powered notebooks were notoriously cheap, unwieldy and – perhaps worst of all – lacked the cool factor of their Apple-made counterparts. 

This effort resulted in the Ultrabook category, and six years later, as laptops have diversified even further into various subsets, Ultrabooks have reached a level of near-perfection that’s virtually unparalleled. 

As evidence of this, HP recently loaned us the 2017 reimagining of its Spectre 13 Ultrabook for review, a vast improvement upon last year’s. At 0.41 inches thick, the HP Spectre 13 has upped the goal of unbridled thinness almost two-fold. Best of all, it does so without obliterating neither performance nor your finances in the process – perfect for Black Friday deals hunting.

Price and availability

At $1,119, the ceramic white HP Spectre 13 we reviewed rivals the $999 (£1,299, $2,299) model of the Dell XPS 13

For that price, you’re signing up for a zippy Intel Core i7-8550U processor, 8GB of RAM, 256GB of PCIe-based SSD storage space and a 13.3-inch, 1,920 x 1,080-pixel touch display. 

Granted, the Dark Ash Silver Spectre 13 starts at $1,099 and comes with an Intel Core i5-8250U instead of an i7.

In the UK, there is only one HP Spectre 13 configuration available, and that costs £1,599. 

It’s mostly the same as the model we reviewed, only this one has a 4K (3,840 x 2,160) touch panel and double the storage.

Unfortunately, at the time of writing, this year’s HP Spectre 13 isn’t available yet in Australia.  

As such, we recommend those folks consider the Dell XPS 13 or the 2016 HP Spectre until HP decides to release its newest model in the AU.

Design

If there was ever a reason to shell out 120 clams over the best-in-class Dell XPS 13 in favor of the HP Spectre 13, it’s that the latter is a looker. In deservedly praising companies like Razer for their design accomplishments, HP shouldn’t go overlooked. 

Here’s a company that’s done a complete 180 in design these past few years, to the point where it’s more difficult than ever to criticize its product composition strategy. The lavish gold trimmings, which bedeck the discrete, two-prong hinge as well as the edges of the device, have become a signature element of every laptop in the HP Spectre family.  

They’re in full force here, as they were with the 13-inch HP Spectre of yesteryear, but there’s admittedly more to admire here. HP took the stellar design we appreciated over a year ago and downsized the screen bezels to the extent that the HP Spectre 13’s predecessor now looks antiquated in comparison.

Today, the HP Spectre 13 is 12.03 inches wide and 8.83 inches deep. Bearing in mind that last year’s Spectre was already exceptionally thin and light, this is a welcome refinement over the 12.8-inch width and 9.03 inch depth we were graced with before.

Meanwhile, the keyboard feels like a full chiclet, akin to the Apple Magic Keyboard for iMacs rather than what we’ve experienced with the MacBook Pro’s dinky butterfly switches that are susceptible to getting stuck. 

The Dell XPS 13, on the other hand, comes in at 11.98 inches wide and 7.88 inches deep, making it the more compact notebook of the three – at least in those areas. In terms of thickness, the XPS 13 is generally fatter, thanks to its ascending height of up to 0.6 inches (again, compared to the 0.41-inch HP Spectre 13) when the lid is closed. 

The MacBook Pro, on the other hand, is 11.97 inches wide and 8.36 inches deep, but 0.59 inches high. Having said that, the HP Spectre 13 gives the impression that it occupies far less space than the 2017 MacBook Pro we used to write this review.

Still, there was a glaring difference in the screen resolution that gives Apple’s laptops the clear-cut advantage. In a world where our 5-inch phone screens are exceeding 400, sometimes 500, pixels-per-inch (PPI), the 166 PPI pixel density of the HP Spectre 13 is approaching unacceptability for a laptop that costs over a grand.

The good news is that, upon ordering the HP Spectre 13, you can net yourself a much sharper 4K Ultra HD screen for an additional charge of $150 in the US. As it stands, we highly recommend doing that, especially if you’re accustomed to flagship smartphone screens at it is.

There’s also the trackpad, one area we would argue MacBooks remain in the forefront. You can touch or, if you want to put some muscle into it, click the touchpad on the HP Spectre 13, but you can’t personalize the amount of force it takes for a click to register or the sound it makes when it does. That’s where Ultrabooks, including this one, struggle the most.

A port in a storm

Similar to the MacBook Pro, the HP Spectre 13 doesn’t have a lot of ports in tow. This is likely the point in our review where you have either decided that you loathe the device or you’re willing to overlook the shortage of ports, because you understand that it’s a necessary compromise for the sake of mobility and that you’re investing in the future of inputs. 

By name, that future is called Thunderbolt 3, an interface that leverages the (in)famous USB Type-C port for transferring data, displaying video and charging the device that houses the port in addition to charging outside devices connected to it. It’s reversible, too, so it’s easier to use in the dark than USB Type-A proper. In other words, it’s supposed to be the be-all-end-all of ports.

The problem is that, although Apple has been using USB-C exclusively in its MacBooks since 2015, there aren’t a lot of accessories out there that use it natively even still. 

Worse yet, because the HP Spectre 13 dons but three USB-C ports and a headphone jack, the USB, HDMI and DisplayPort accessories you currently own will require an adapter to use them. While two of these are Thunderbolt 3, indicating data transfer rates of up to 40 Gigabits per second, power delivery and DisplayPort 1.2, the other is a slower and less versatile USB 3.1 Gen 1 port ideal for charging.

Luckily, HP thought of this when it sent us the Spectre 13 for review. Out of the box, we were given adapters for USB 3.0, HDMI and RJ45 Ethernet to USB Type-C. After contacting a customer service representative at HP, however, it turns out that, alas, none of these accessories are included in the retail version of the Spectre 13.

But, enough about ports, let’s talk performance.

The HP Spectre 13 is a notebook full of surprises, which is why we’re quick to forgive it on its handful of shortcomings. We’ve already gawked over its seductive appearances, but what you may not have realized is how fast this thing moves. 

It doesn’t exactly have a leg up on the competition, as the Dell XPS 13 does come outfitted with the same specs, but as of this writing we’ve yet to benchmark a model sporting 8th-generation Intel Kaby Lake Refresh processors. For that reason, the HP Spectre 13 performed better than what we have to compare it to.

In the 3DMark graphics tests, the differences between the HP Spectre 13 and it’s closest rival – the long-chattered-about Dell XPS 13 – were negligible. 

In Sky Diver, for instance, a test designed specifically with gaming laptops and mid-range PCs in mind, the HP Spectre 13 scored just 136 points more than the Dell XPS 13. 

To put into perspective how marginal of an upper hand that is, Microsoft’s Surface Book 2 garnered 14,427 points in Sky Diver.

The HP Spectre 13 isn’t a graphical powerhouse, nor is it claiming to be. 

Gamers, 3D modelers and aspiring video producers ought to look elsewhere – a desktop maybe? – for high-end media leviathans.

As for CPU testing, the HP Spectre 13 unsurprisingly took the crown, especially in multi-core Geekbench, where it amassed 13,733 points compared to the Dell XPS 13’s 7,802. This is the first time we’ve seen a quad-core processor in an Ultrabook after all, and so far we can say the results have been, well, so good.

We can’t draw as many direct comparisons with the MacBook Pro, but we will say that the HP Spectre 13 did beat it out in every mutual test we conducted.

Battery life

Instead, this laptop’s fate is hinged on a sweet balance between battery life and sheer processing might.

In these, the Spectre didn’t quite compare to the Dell XPS 13’s otherworldly 7 hours and 13 minutes.

But, having lasted a minute less than 6 hours looping a 1080p movie in VLC Media Player, it comes close to the MacBook Pro’s hearty 6-hour and 37-minute spiral.

We liked

As a pioneer for Intel’s 8th-generation Kaby Lake Refresh processors, the HP Spectre 13 prevails. As a showcase for HP’s own design remedy, the Spectre 13 is equally important. It may not have earned a perfect five-star review, but you shouldn’t write this one off. 

By combining a unique aesthetic and featherlight dynamics with performance that punches above its weight, the HP Spectre 13 is one for the books, and we would go further to say your wallet to boot.

We disliked

Don’t expect the HP Spectre 13’s imperfections to equal pitfalls. In the grand scheme of things, they’re a lot more minor than this negative nancy would suggest. 

Could the trackpad give you more options? Sure, but we haven’t used a Windows laptop whose cursor clicker can quite match that of a MacBook Pro. Do we miss having a wide range of ports on our laptops without the need to convert to the #donglelife? Also, yes, but it’s clear where the future is headed and the HP Spectre 13 is but a pitstop to that destination.

Final verdict

If you’re in the market for an Ultrabook that can handle the average workload with ease and crashes next to null, the HP Spectre 13 will treat you well. 

Someone will probably ask you about it, whether you’re taking notes in a classroom or freelancing from a coworking space – we can’t stress it enough, that’s how fierce this machine looks. 

And, unlike the new Spectre’s closest competitors, a handsome look doesn’t substitute industry-leading guts.

Asus ZenFone V

The Asus Zenfone V is a Verizon exclusive smartphone running Android 7.0 and sporting a $240 price tag. The bargain bin price and exclusive seating might keep it from getting on people’s radar, but it’s easily worth a peek.

For its low asking price, you'll be getting some surprisingly premium features, like an AMOLED display, microSD storage and a Snapdragon 820 that, while last-gen, still packs a punch. Asus has really filled this budget-minded phone to the brim.

Design

The design is uninspired, with nothing too exciting on the front, aside from its beveled edges. Its back has a “Zen” aesthetic that’s little more than a circular finish on metal housed beneath glass. All said, it still looks premium with a metal edge and glass on the front and back. 

The materials give it the look of a quality device, and it even has a relatively robust hand-feel, but the structural integrity is still somewhat questionable. There’s no water resistance rating, so it shouldn’t take any baths or showers, and it doesn’t have the latest Corning Gorilla Glass. It’s probably best to avoid dropping this one, unless it’s into a case. The phone noticeably flexed with light bending pressure, and regrettable damage seemed just a slight push away, and a tad further than we wanted to test. Even the vibration motor felt a little wobbly, as patting on our pocket would get it to vibrate as if a message had come in.

The front of the device has a selfie camera at the top, and capacitive Back and Recent Apps buttons at the bottom on each side of the fingerprint scanner button, which actually (refreshingly) depresses. The volume rocker and power button are in easy reach of the thumb on the right edge of the phone. On the bottom edge, there’s a speaker port, a USB-C charging port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The main camera in on back, centered near the top.

The display on the ZenFone V is plenty to be pleased with at its price. It’s a Full HD display that is plenty sharp at 5.2 inches, and the visuals on AMOLED continue to be a pleasure to the eyes.

Features and performance

For $240, it would be reasonable to expect maybe a Snapdragon 430, 2GB of RAM, a slow but functional fingerprint scanner, 16GB of storage and a camera that simply gets the job done. The Asus Zenfone V said “nah” to that. 

It has a dated, but still powerful Snapdragon 820 processor paired with 4GB of RAM that didn’t show any signs of breaking a sweat during our testing. Its 32GB of internal storage may not be much, but it can be expanded greatly with a microSD card. The fingerprint scanner was snappy. And, the camera we’ll talk more about soon.

The Asus Zenfone V ran smooth throughout our time gaming, streaming videos, browsing the web, or just diddling around on it because making eye contact on the subway isn’t how things are done in 2017. Few phones at this price point offer performance this impressive.

The Asus ZenUI 4.0 wasn’t our favorite user interface for Android 7.0, feeling a bit too cute with all of its light blue circles everywhere, but it didn’t feel like a tax on the system, or our patience. It even came with an almost frightening number of options for different animations for flipping between pages on the homescreen. It even adds in some nice features that Android wouldn’t have otherwise, like a “Glove Mode” that actually seemed to work and ZenMotion gestures that open apps when a letter is drawn on the screen while the display is off. As an exclusive, it did also come with some bloatware from Verizon that could not be uninstalled.

While on the note of sour points, Zenfone V’s speaker turned crunchy at higher volumes, with high frequencies clipping. It offers an “Outdoor Mode” meant to boost the volume, but it seemed more like an EQ shift and did little to improve the sound quality at high volume.

But, the cameras bring it all back. It has a 23MP f/2.0 rear camera with optical image stabilization, and it can shoot video in 4K with electronic image stabilization. The front-facing camera boasts a respectable 8MP f/2.0 sensor.

The numbers being what they are, the cameras and the accompanying software is great. Switching between shooting modes is easy, and the camera software is just packed with features. It has the standard modes, like Auto, Panorama, and a satisfying pro mode.Then there are the other fun modes, like the Filter mode, which is less like Instagram and more like Photoshop (think Pencil and Cartoon) and even gets rendered in real time in the viewfinder. Another nifty mode is Super Resolution, which stitches together multiple shots for a massive 96MP image with extra smooth edges. There’s even a “Selfie Mode” that automatically detects faces and takes a picture, allowing for group selfies using the superior rear camera.

All in all, the rear camera is shockingly good for the price, and really helped round out the experience of the phone.

Folks looking to find a weak point might think about the battery, but the Asus Zenfone V is loaded with a formidable 3,000mAh battery that can fully charge in under 2 hours or go from 0% to 20% in just 15 minutes (Asus claims it can get 60% charge in 37 minutes, but we couldn’t repeat this in our testing). Watching a 90-minute video in Full HD with the phone at full brightness, the battery went from 100% to just 87%, which means this phone is ready for back to back movies.

Verdict

The Asus Zenfone V is a budget beast that deserves to fly but is chained down by Verizon exclusivity. Even so, this phone would still feel like a reasonable deal at $400, but it’s only $240.

There’s some much going right for this phone, making it easy to forget about some of the nitpicky detractors. That’s before factoring in the price, which would outright banish them from our minds if we didn’t have to do a comprehensive review of the device. 

Is it disappointing that the design is nothing new? If it were $700, yes, but it’s $240, so no. Is it disappointing that it’s not super durable or waterproof? If it were $700, yes, but it’s $240, so no. Is a little bloatware and an overdone UI disappoint? If it were $700, yes, but it’s $240, so no. Rinse and repeat.

The only gripe that really holds up in the face of the price tag is the Verizon exclusivity. This is an insanely good budget phone, and there are plenty of mobile customers at T-Mobile and MVNO carriers, like Cricket, Boost Mobile or Project Fi that would gobble a phone like this up. 

The screen, the camera, the powerful internals and the simple but classy design pull this phone together in a great way, and tacking a $240 price tag on the box makes it a no-brainer. Unfortunately, tacking Verizon on the box limits who can buy this phone, but for Verizon customers or those looking for a great budget phone worth switching carriers for, the Asus Zenfone V is worthy.

Optoma HD142X Projector

Bigger is almost always better in the world of home cinema, but most of us overlook a projector in favour of an ever bigger flatscreen TV. But, now selling for just $544 (UK£489/AU$1299), Optoma's bargain HD142X DLP projector might change that. 

It's not like our trepidation with projectors developed over night - in fact, there are good reasons why people tend to avoid a projector when setting-up a basement home cinema. One is resolution; while new TVs generally come with 4K resolution, only the most expensive projectors around do that. Not much has changed on that in recent years, and the Full HD1080p (1920x1080 pixels) resolution of the HD142X will put-off some. 

However, elsewhere the HD142X has got some tempting features that make it a standout in the terms of value. Its 3,000 ANSI lumens of brightness means it can be used in any ambient light conditions, so at any time of the day – this isn't just a movie machine after dark. Optoma says it will last for around 8,000 hours, which is about a decade if you watch a two-hour movie every day. 

That's one hurdle that the HD142X gets over, and it jumps another with its integrated 10W mono speaker. Okay, so that's not nearly as much power as your home theatre sound system, but unless the HD142X is destined for a bedroom or separate home theatre room, it's probably going to be enough for occasional gaming in a living area. 

An affordable and compact DLP projector designed to be taken from a cupboard or drawer to create Full HD movies or games at a moment's notice, Optoma's HD142X will persuade many that flat panels are passé.

Design

To say that the Optoma HD142X's style is bland and uninteresting is a massive understatement, but that's projectors for you, and at least this DLP projector is reasonably small. Measuring 3.7 x 11.7 x 9 inches (386 x 162 x 280mm) and weighing 5.5 lbs (2.49kg), it's hardly super-light, but it's easy enough to hold under an arm and make a dash for the attic/bedroom/home theater den. 

At first glance it might appear rather barren on the back panel, however its two HDMI inputs (both HDMI 1.4a for MHL and 3D support) will be enough for most users. Nearby is a 3.5mm audio output, a 12V trigger for adding it to custom home theater control systems, and a USB slot that's for firmware updates only. 

Sadly the remote control is small and cheap-looking, with poorly placed buttons. However, it's responsive and is back-lights in blue light for five seconds or so whenever you touch it, which is useful if you're watching it at night.  

Setup

Modern consumer electronics products are all about the user interface ... but somebody forgot to tell the projector industry. 

Inside the HD142X are some rudimentary menu systems that belong in the last century, though in practice it's relatively simple to get going. Able to project an image sized at 28 inches (from 32ft.) to a whopping 305 inches (from 32ft.), the HD142X uses a manual zoom lever and keystone correction to get the image dead-on. We're not a huge fan of that latter tech, because of the image distortion it creates (a manual lens shift lever and a zoom are much easier and more accurate), but with the HD142X we managed to quickly create an image whose geometry we were happy with. 

Picture presets include Cinema, Bright, Vivid, Gaming, sRGB and Reference (making possible a professional ISF calibration), and for those who want to stretch the quoted 8,000 hours lamp life even further, the bulb can be set to fire in Bright, Eco and Dynamic modes.  

Perfromance

The HD142X is all about quiet brightness. Don't underestimate how useful is to have a projector that can be used at any time of day, and at the HD142X's low price, its 3,000 ANSI Lumens is a good value feature. 

However, the HD142X manages to perform a neat trick by pumping out enough light while its fan remains reasonably quiet. In our test the HD142X never got louder than 65dB, and we have no problem sitting close by. 

Use it in the daytime in Bright mode, and the HD142X creates bright images that are perfectly watchable, and whose colors are only slightly overcooked. 

Straight out of the box, the Cinema picture preset –  which uses less than half of the lumens this projector is capable of – offers up contrasty images in a blackout, as you might expect from a DLP projector. 

While watching Rogue One: A Star Wars Story from a Blu-ray player, we noticed a surprising amount of shadow detail in black areas of the image, which looks clean and sharp all the way around the image. Color is accurate, well saturated and natural-looking, and though we did notice rainbows from the color wheel, whether you do or not will depend entirely on how susceptible your eyes are (many people never, ever notice it).

As a bonus – or perhaps a pointless distraction – the HD142X also deals in 3D, but we were not supplied with a pair of IR-based 3D shutter glasses for this review and couldn't put it through its paces there. 

From a more practical point of view, having a built-in speaker should be an absolute boon. Sadly the HD142X's 10W mono speaker is something of a token effort, with muffled sound that lacks any clarity. On both voice and music it narrows the soundstage, and lacks any kind of low-frequency action. 

So that speaker is a waste of time, right? Strictly speaking, yes, but the accompanying audio output on the rear of the HD142X means you can plug a pair of headphones in without getting any amplifiers or other audio equipment involved. It's extra effort, but it'll be well worth it in the end. 

We liked

The HD142X is not an exciting projector. Take the 8,000 hour lamp life guarantee. It's not much fun, but it will save you some trouble in a few years. Nor is there anything particularly special about its Full HD resolution, while its 10W integrated speaker could be better. 

However, taken as a package, there's little the HD142X can't do well. Though you might expect excellent color and contrast from a projector these days, the HD142X performs well with both straight out of the box, which is rare. Expect clean, crisp images with plenty of accurate color, and more contrast and shadow detail within black areas of the image that you've a right to expect at this price. And we loved the brightness of the lamp, which meant we could use the HD142X at midday and still see the image clearly.  

We disliked

This is a single-chip DLP projector, so of course it does come with the slight irritation – to some (not all) eyes – of DLP rainbow effect, so those who are susceptible should avoid it. The two HDMI inputs are going to be fine for most users, but for those wanting to set-up the permanently with a games console, a Blu-ray player and a set-top box of some kind, a third would have been nice. 

It would also be great to see a wider use among projector manufacturers of a manual lens shift lever, which makes the a projector easier to aim, and which the HD142X notably lacks. The HD142X also has a poor remote control and a dated, boxy design.  

Final verdict

Versatile and with plenty of core technical quality, the HD142X is a highly impressive proposition for the money. Aside from its whopping 8,000 hour lamp life, there's nothing groundbreaking here, and the fact that it offers only a Full HD resolution may disappoint some. However, forget 4K resolution – that's not coming to a projector of this price for a good few years yet – and bask in the HD142X's big, sharp images, its impressive contrast and shadow detail, and, above all, its irresistible ease of use. 

Long story short, if you're after a projector that you can take out of a cupboard for the occasional big screen movie or gaming night, the compact, versatile and great value HD142X is hard to beat.

Google found to be collecting Android device location data even with location services turned off

Google Pixel XL hands-on video review

Typically when you disable a setting on your phone, like Wi-Fi or location services, you think that that feature is turned off. It turns out that that's not necessarily the case with Android devices, though.

It's been discovered that Android devices have been gathering location data and sending it back to Google, even if location settings have been turned off. That's according to a report from Quartz, who says that this issue has affected all modern Android devices since early 2017.

The data being collected is the addresses of nearby cellular towers. While it would be difficult to pinpoint a person's precise location with that info, you could use data from multiple towers to triangulate a location to within about a quarter mile.

This location info was being collected from devices even if location services are disable and without a SIM card installed. These devices will send the location data to Google each time they reach a new cell tower if they've got a cellular connection, or whenever they connect to Wi-Fi if there's no SIM card installed.

Android figure large

Google confirmed that it's collecting location data from all Android devices, saying that it "began looking into using Cell ID codes as an additional signal to further improve the speed and performance of message delivery" back in January 2017.

A source speaking to Quartz said that cell tower location data was being sent to Google following a change in the Firebase Cloud Messaging service, which is owned by Google and is used to send notifications and messages. 

Google said that it plans to cease collecting this cell tower location data from Android devices — at least as it pertains to this service — by the end of November.

The issue here is clearly that Google has been collecting location data from users even if those people disable location services. Some people don't like to be tracked, and while the data collected by Google may not pinpoint a person's location, it can narrow down the area a person is in by quite a bit. And while this data is encrypted as it's sent to Google, it's possible that the device could be hacked or infected with spyware and be forced to send that location data to a third party.
