HP 15-db0401ng laptop review: nowhere else

In the HP 15 we tested, the AMD Ryzen 3 2200U processor is working, which, in terms of power, is not inferior to the Intel Core i3. In terms of gaming performance, this laptop even surpasses the nearest competitor in the rating – it is equipped with an Intel-CPU. In combination with 8 GB of RAM and a fast SSD drive, this configuration offers a very high system performance. In addition to large RAM, it boasts the size and memory is constant: a 128-gigabyte SSD for the operating system and programs is complemented by a classic 1000 GB HDD. Here the user is not so quickly fill all the available disk space and at the same time he will have a fast system disk.

  • outstanding performance and equipment
  • 128 GB SSD and 1000 GB HDD
  • a lot of RAM (8 GB)


  • cheap looking body
  • low battery life
  • loud but comfortable keyboard
The display has a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels, that is, modern Full-HD, and it is also bright and with a matte surface, due to which interfering glare is significantly reduced. The rest is about an inexpensive display panel: the stability of viewing angles is insignificant, that is, the normal picture is visible only when facing the screen in frontal position, and the color space coverage is rather modest, which makes the colors pale, which is typical for this class of technology.

Unfortunately, the AMD Ryzen 3 processor is not energy efficient, and a 41 Wh battery can be considered average. Because of this, it turns out rather low battery life, which cannot be compared to that of similarly equipped laptops based on Intel Core-i3 processor:

HP Test 15-db0401ng: very simple case

With extremely generous equipment, the quality of the materials used is somewhat lagging behind: the case is made of simple and cheap-looking black plastic without any design frills. With the touchpad everything is in order, although he keeps braking a little. The keyboard purely visually and acoustically gives the impression of a cheap one, but at the same time surprises when typing: the surface of the buttons is pleasantly rough, so contact with the finger is reliable, the keys are not slippery. The height of the freewheel is somewhat small, but still normal, and the force of resistance to pressing is sufficient. As a result, when typing, you will feel pretty confident.
