Just wanted to share some data from the newest XPS 13 Convertible review, since the technical specs are similar (at least regarding CPU and battery):
- 46 Wh battery
- i7-7Y75 (as Eve V top model)
- 8GB RAM
- screen resolution is only 1920x1080, keep that in mind for comparison of battery runtime
- Idle: min 3.1W, max. 4.9W, average 4.3W
- Full load: average 24.3W, maximum 22.8W (at least that's what the reviewer believes to have measured...)
* Idle: 16h 11min
* WIFI test: 11h 26min
* Full load (max. brightness): 2h 55min
Measurements of power consumption seem faulty to me, based on a 46Wh battery (but notebookcheck has these power consumption errors in every single review that goes online, it never adds up. I guess they use some sort of device for power consumtion measurements and never seem to realize that the proposed numbers don't add up with the measured runtimes):
- Idle: 16h 11m (16.18 hours) runtime would imply an average power consumption of 2.84W.
- Full load: 2.92 hours would equal 15.75W (15.77W precisely) average power consumption
The measured runtimes in hours on the other hand are much less prone to errors. It's just a stopwatch after all... (at least I hope that runtimes are not some sort of calculation based on the first 10 minutes... who knows when looking at those numbers in the review...)
But this makes me very confident that the V will have a great battery runtime.
Outdoor readability of the Dell is mediocre, brightness in only 302 nits (Eve V has a promised brightness of 450nits and a special anti reflection coating. Btw, I'm soooooo eager to see that in action!!!). Why Dell? Why are you runinig this otherwise great device with such a screen? There are some pictures of the screen in sunlight in the review (see links below).
