Dell XPS 13 Plus Full Review

We share all the necessary information below with you so that it will help you a lot in buying a new laptop.

Design and Display

There’s an aluminum casing that looks premium and sturdy as ever, you’ll likely notice two Thunderbolt C ports but no headphone jack in the new XPS 13. Dell supplied the USB – C Type with a headphone jack connector. The headphone jack connector is in the box.

The higher model of the XPS 13 comes with a 4K OLED display, but the lower model comes with 1080p LCD options. The High model is equipped with a 3.5k OLED touchscreen with a brightness of 400 nits.

Keyboard

This laptop comes with a touch keypad and an edge-to-edge keyboard as there is no gap between the keys. This keyboard is very similar to the HP Specter X360 but Dell works more effectively than other companies’ keyboards. Among some of the buttons is the touch screen button which is new in this design. The touch trackpad is hidden under the wrist rest and there’s a capacitive function row that keeps things looking really clean and nice without confusing the Apple Touch Bar. This keyboard light is brighter and better seen outside.

TrackPad

A haptic path is used in this laptop that is unique in design when the laptop is on the drives that run under the trackpad and allows you to scroll and click like you’re used to not seeing where that trackpad is. This trackpad is similar to Apple’s MacBook professionals. On the Xps 13 plus you easily miss the trackpad area so you can’t tell you’re hitting it until you see the cursor move or if you click down and you feel a lot frustrated like missing a scroll where I mean to scroll or right-clicking when I mean to left-click on it.

Performance

The Dell XPS 13 Plus delivers professional performance in a compact form factor. This laptop comes with the Intel 12th Gen EVO chipset which consists of 14 CPUs consisting of six performance cores and eight efficiency cores. Our benchmark on Geekbench 5 is 3713 which is similar to the Razer blade 15 and Asus Zephyrus duo. It’s also closer to the much larger XPS 15. One of the bad points in the performance is the design of this laptop because it is very thin which is why the CPU does not work great.

In Geekbench 5.4, which measures overall CPU performance, the XPS 13 Plus achieved a single-core score of 1,797 and a multi-core score of 10.621. The multi-core number jumped to 11217 when we set the XPS 13 Plus to Ultra Performance mode. This beats both the MacBook Air M2 (1932/8919) and the MacBook Pro M2 (1,898/8911). The Lenovo Yoga 9i Gen 7 has just arrived at 1722/7150.

Battery and Power mode

This Laptop has 4 power mode

  • Cooling mode
  • Optimized mode
  • Quiet Mode
  • Ultra Performance Mode

If the Display runs at 150 nits, this laptop only lasts 7 hours and 34 minutes. That’s pretty weak and is actually in line with the 7-hour estimate Dell gave its own Netflix streaming test for this unit. To be fair, you should expect much longer endurance if you opt for a regular LCD panel. In fact, Dell rated the XPS 13 Plus for up to 13 hours for the Full HD+ model with a non-touch screen.

Webcam and Security

Dell XPS 13 plus also has dell’s Razor thin infinity edge bezels as a result the effect is still really cool and it looks nice. Webcam is a little better than the previous model but it supports 720p resolution.

The XPS 13 Plus works with a 720p webcam at a time when many laptop makers are upgrading to 1080p. But I thought the image quality was decent when I put this system up against the MacBook Air on a Google Meet video call. Although the image quality was grainy and darker than I liked, I thought the XPS 13 Plus did a better job of capturing more natural colors on the face. There was a more detailed picture.
