HP Omen 16 Review And Specification

HP Omen 16 Review And Specification

 The official relaunch of the HP Omen 16 last year seems, in my opinion, to be the last straw for gaming laptops with their iconic red stripes and vibrant lights. HP's second generation of gaming laptops is more of a redesign and refinement than a comeback.

The new Omen 16 appears to be more concerned with refining its gaming style and thermal system than it is with adding new capabilities. It was a favorite among midrange gamers last year's Omen 16. It is available in both AMD and Intel versions at launch, with AMD having the only choice for the black color and Intel having the white color.

The HP Omen 16 is a unique and unexpected laptop because it's one of the few that uses AMD for both its processor and graphics card. This is peculiar because HP has chosen to run fully on AMD technology in a graphics market dominated by Intel's RTX 30-Series cards. At slightly more than one thousand dollars, a strong performance from the Radeon RX 6600M would put portable GeForce RTX 3070 systems, such as the Alienware m15 R7, to significant competition.

Outstanding as a laptop for gaming is the HP Omen 16. It has a nice, understated appearance and a 4-zone RGB keyboard backlight that can provide color as needed. Even while the Omen isn't the thinnest and lightest laptop we've seen so far, its luxury feel comes from the metal plate used to carve the keyboard.

Despite being built of plastic, the Omen 16's touchpad is quick and its keyboard is comfy. It works great at 1080p for gaming, and with titles that support it, AMD's upscaling technology allows you to take that picture up to 1440p.

It has adequate connectivity, including an Ethernet port, a USB Type-A port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack on the left side. There are two more USB-A ports on the right side, while two USB-C, an HDMI output, and a power jack are located on the back.

In general, we believe that the Lenovo Legion 5 Pro is slightly more powerful than the HP Omen 16. As always, the kind of games you want to play and what's on offer at the time should guide your decision when purchasing a gaming laptop.

Fantastic features and design

Although it's not the most exquisite gaming laptop we've seen, HP's Omen nevertheless has a sleek appearance and a ton of capabilities. Its subtle style is complemented by its matte-black aluminum and plastic construction. The speakers feature a stylish, geometric pattern, and the lid sports a tiny, iridescent logo. In terms of appearance, the Omen 16 is more sophisticated than the Victus and the basic Dell, while still being sleek and understated like the Lenovo.

It also has a lot of useful functions. Along with a speedier USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C port, an HDMI 2.1 connection, a mini-DisplayPort connector, an SD card reader, and a full-sized USB 3.2 Gen 1 port that can charge devices even when the laptop is off.

Poor construction quality

The Omen 16 has a sleek appearance, however the build quality is somewhat lacking. In contrast to the Lenovo and Dell, which feel solid, the screen flexes and the undercarriage rattles. You'd better get a protective sleeve if you want to take it out on the road frequently.

Moreover, the touchpad and keyboard are mediocre. In contrast to the greatest gaming keyboards we've previously tested, I think the buttons on this keyboard are too soft, even though they are quick and comfortable enough for typing and casual gaming. The experience with the Dell G15 is noticeably more solid. Once more, there is no number pad on the keyboard, and the power button is inconveniently positioned above the Backspace key. Furthermore, despite the keyboard's four-zone RGB LED backlighting, it appears to have faded somewhat.

In other places, the trackpad is made of plastic rather than the smooth glass found on the majority of other laptops, and the clicking sensation is not very pleasurable. It seems squishy on the bottom edge and a little stiff at the top of the pad. As always, my advice to players is to connect a USB gaming keyboard and mouse in its place.
