Hp Pavilion 15 Radeon Graphics – The HP Pavilion 15 is an affordable 15” laptop with plenty of power and a high-quality aluminum housing. For less than 700 euros you get a high-performance AMD Ryzen 5 5500U and 16 GB of RAM. On paper, the cheap office laptop also qualifies for simple image and video editing.
Of course, the Pavilion 15 is also available in different configurations. The AMD version tested here is also available with a smaller AMD Ryzen 3 5300U. The Intel model offers a choice of 11th generation Core i5 and Core i7. RAM is traditionally 8 or 16 GB. All models have a 15.6-inch Full HD display with wide-angle IPS technology. SSD includes up to 1 TB. Pavilion 15 notebooks are priced from €500 to €1,100*, with AMD being offered at a lower price. Currently* €699, our test model hits the sweet spot. Because 16 GB RAM and 512 GB SSD should already be enough for most potential customers.

First impressions are important – and HP has already scored here: Because the Pavilion 15 is made entirely of aluminum. This not only looks stylish, but also feels good. The design remains quite reduced. I personally like this because there are still nice little details on a second look. For example, a decorative strip on the lid that makes opening easier. In addition, there is an inverted HP logo in the middle that tells your friend the manufacturer of your notebook. The principle is probably already known by a certain company with the bitten apple logo.

The form factor can also be witnessed in everyday life: At 1.75 kg, the Pavilion 15 has become pleasantly light. Thanks to the narrow edges of its screen, it barely takes up more space than older 14-inch laptops. So it should easily fit into most pockets and not be too intrusive on the go.
The processing fits and sits well above its price range. You will search in vain for creaking parts or excessive gaps. Only the bottom can be a bit thin for my taste, but so are the more expensive competitors.
The only minor criticism is the screen hinge: it moves quite slowly and thus prevents opening the notebook with one hand. Opening Pavilion 15 quickly with a cup of coffee in hand is not possible. However, the hinge has one advantage: It doesn’t matter if it’s on a train or a plane, it responds to strong turbulence mostly with a weary nod.
The HP Pavilion 15’s keyboard sits in a small indentation and has a nice pressure point. The keys don’t wobble too much and the case doesn’t drag when you type harder. In conjunction with the slightly higher key drop, the keyboard is also suitable for frequent typists. Thanks to the 15.6-inch form factor, HP was also able to accommodate a number pad. If you do a lot of scrolling in Excel, then this additional input option is definitely worth it.

The trackpad is also great and reacts exactly to your inputs. Since it’s shifted slightly to the left, HP is mostly thinking about better ergonomics for right-handed use with the Pavilion 15. It’s also nice that there are no blind spots or places where it stops responding to your commands.
All we can say about the built-in HD webcam is that it’s on par with the competition – and it hasn’t gotten any better in recent years. While smartphones and tablets are getting better and better at (selfie) cameras, laptops at all price points have been stagnant for years. This means: At poor 720P resolution, bright areas quickly degenerate into burnt white, and dark image content is pixelated and muddy. At the time of regular video calls via Zoom or Microsoft Teams, all laptop manufacturers are invited to make improvements here.
You can’t use the webcam to unlock the Pavilion 15, but HP has installed a fingerprint reader for that. After putting it on once, it recognized my index finger right away.
Last but not least: HP gave the delivery area very little plastic and uses cardboard instead. Good choise. Apart from the Pavilion 15, the packaging only contains the cable charger and a quick start guide. He doesn’t need more. Commendable: HP uses recycled materials for materials. This may continue and be taken by other manufacturers.

HP has also given the Pavilion 15 a good number of ports: A full HDMI port awaits you on the left. Beamer, monitor or TV connect quickly and easily. The USB Type-A and Type-C ports sit next to each other. Above all, peripherals can be connected through the former, while the USB-C port can also be used for charging.
Especially if you have a USB-C charger with 65W, a very practical thing. This means you can charge your smartphone and Pavilion Android with one power pack – but only one proprietary one is included in the scope of delivery. The two USB ports are connected according to the USB-A 3.2 Gen standard. 1. This is quite fast, but not the most advanced. You can learn more about the different USB standards here.
Otherwise, there’s a microSD card reader and the obligatory 3.5mm combo jack on the left. I would have preferred a normal SD card reader because as a frequent photographer you want to remove the SD card from the camera to get photos faster on the laptop.
Therefore, the choice of connection can cover most application scenarios well. Only a LAN connection is noticeably missing. For this you need to get an adapter.

Subjectively, the display of Pavilion 15 makes a good impression. Colors look strong, viewing angles are accurate, and there’s almost no reflection. So you can even use it in a noisy room to watch Netflix series together. At 15.6 inches, the Full HD screen also offers a good diagonal and image sharpness to be able to multitask adequately.
However, if you’re looking for a cheap laptop with photo and video editing potential, then I have to disappoint you. Because with 64% sRGB coverage, it is best suited for photo hobby work.
Therefore, all required colors cannot be displayed. In the expanded AdobeRGB and DCI-P3 color spaces, it appears even more colorless at 47% each.
Otherwise, the screen is quite bright with an average of 245 nits and thankfully barely reflective. However, you should not use pavilion 15 on the beach. Firstly it is not waterproof and secondly you will only see a milky version of your reflection. At least the uniformity of illumination is good – there are no halos, known as bad cloud formation with dark image content. Colors are also nicely reproduced homogeneously on the screen. In addition, the Pavilion can display 15 standard colors without major deviations.

So it’s mainly a notebook for surfing, watching videos and working. If you really want to edit photos, you can easily connect an external display via the HDMI connection.
AMD RYZEN 5500U is the real star of the Pavilion 15 ensemble. Unlike its direct predecessor, it is no longer reduced to six threads, but can use the full power of six cores and twelve threads. In this way, HP and AMD achieve a level of performance in the thin and inexpensive laptop that was only available in expensive workstation laptops a few years ago.
In everyday life, the six-core processor cannot be bothered even by the most demanding tasks. It exports 20 RAW photos processed in Lightroom in a good time of 1:02 seconds.
More than 60 FPS was possible at high settings and at Full HD resolution in Counter Strike Global Offensive. Although there were some drops at 50 frames per second, the first-person shooter was still playable.

As delivered, 433GB is still free on the 512GB SSD. The built-in SSD doesn’t set any speed records, but it’s still fast enough that you won’t notice any loading times in games or programs.
Thanks to the fast processor, you can also edit strong videos in DaVinci Resolve. The lack of a dedicated graphics unit is only noticeable when rendering with many effects
While the CPU cores reach between 46-48 degrees in idle mode, the HP Pavilion jumps up to 86.6 degrees Celsius under full load. That sounds like a lot, but since the AMD processor can easily reach 100 degrees, it’s still a good value. At the beginning of the stress test, all installed cores were checked at a maximum of 4 GHz. However, after a short time, they drop between 2.2 and 2.4 GHz. The temperature then drops to 65-68 degrees. Incidentally, despite the aluminum, the HP laptop case does not overheat. Running the gyro is still possible – as long as the thermometer in your workroom doesn’t go towards 30 degrees.
The Pavilion 15 even excels in the AIDA64 stress test at a relatively low volume. Of course, you’ll definitely hear when the notebook is really working – but it’s never loud or uncomfortable. In normal use, it rarely speaks and is almost always drowned out by normal office noise.

So while the fans aren’t annoying at all, some pre-installed software unfortunately did on the Pavilion too, which does just that with advertising pop-ups. The worst offender is McAfee Antivirus. The program often tries to get you to pay for a subscription and covers entire areas of the image with large banners.
Fortunately, everything can be easily uninstalled. Because otherwise there is also Amazon, Booking, Dropbox, ExpressVPN and others.
HP software is also up and running. Like HP Support Assistant. It keeps the main panel drivers up to date and at the same time provides contact
