Laptops have become an integral part of our lives nowadays. Whether for work or to take classes online from home, most people around the world have become much more dependent on their laptops. In fact, from a recent report Canalis Suggests that PC shipments (including tablets) in India grew by 72 per cent per annum in Q1 2021.
Taking this as an opportunity, Japanese technology company Fujitsu entered India last month and launched two new laptops. I have been using one of them for the last one month, which is converted into a tablet and combined with a stylus. The Fujitsu UH-X2-in-1 convertible laptop is priced at Rs 86,990, and the toned down version is priced at Rs 80,990.
I have been using the Fujitsu UH-X2-in-1 convertible laptop as my work device for the last one month. Most of my work includes writing, photo editing, attending meetings, and heavy internet and social media browsing, and in all of these situations the Fujitsu UH-X2-in-1 convertible laptop is flashing.
So, should you spend more than Rs 80,000 on a Fujitsu UH-X2-in-1 convertible laptop and it is your next working device? I answered this in a full review of the Fujitsu UH-X2-in-1.
Fujitsu UH-X2-in-1 Laptop Design, Build
The Fujitsu UH-X2-in-1 convertible laptop made in Japan comes in a color option কালো black and it looks quite subtle, in my opinion. However, if you are hoping that the device will be like one of the premium laptops of stylish design, then you may be disappointed. Another thing you may dislike is how easily the device registers smog despite being packed with a matte finish design.
The Fujitsu laptop offers quite good build quality and weighs very light, 7 grams – to be precise. But when it comes to design, it looks a lot less expensive than a laptop.
The company claims it is “India’s lightest convertible consumer notebook”. Although I haven’t tested all the consumer notebooks available on the market, I can be sure for this Fujitsu laptop. The convertible notebook is extremely easy to handle, which is rarely found on devices that provide such heavy features and great power.
When it comes to foldable phones or convertible laptops, one of the main concerns among consumers is how durable the hinges are. Well, when it comes to Fujitsu UH-X2-in-1 laptops, the hinges seem to be quite durable. Folding and unfolding the device is a breeze but you need to use both hands to convert the laptop into a notebook. People in Fujitsu claim that the device is quite durable and it goes through several tests to make sure it can withstand pressure and drops, which can certainly happen if you are an inexperienced person.
Another remarkable feature of this Fujitsu laptop is the walkum-powered pen, which the company claims has 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity. Stylus allows users to do lots of fun activities including doodling, taking notes and annotating documents. Notebook mode can also be used to watch videos or movies for a long time.
Since I use my laptop for most tasks, including lots of writing, browsing the internet and social media, photo editing and much more, I didn’t use the tablet mode much. But I must mention that my year old niece has enjoyed doodling using this stylus.
Fujitsu UH-X2-in-1 laptop display, keypad
The Fujitsu UH-X2-in-1 laptop adopts a large screen and plenty of media content suitable for work. The device has a 13.3-inch FHD touchscreen that provides anti-glare and 400 net brightness.
I have used the laptop as my primary work device and it always gives a seamless viewing experience. The curtain became quite bright in the indoor situation. However, unlike some of the latest generation laptops found at this price point, the Fujitsu UH-X includes quite a wide bezel at the top. The bezels on the other side are relatively thin.
Performance, connectivity of Fujitsu UH-X2-in-1 laptop
The Fujitsu laptop is powered by the 11th General Intel Core i7-1165G7 Tiger Lake CPU, a power-efficient quad-core chipset based on the 10nm fabrication process. It is clocked at 2.8GHz and can turbo up to 4.7GHz. The device comes with 16GB of LPDDR4X RAM and support for 1TB NVMe SSD storage. Graphics, on the other hand, are taken care of by an integrated Intel Iris Xe GPU.
Overall, the Fujitsu 2-in-1 laptop handles daily tasks very well, but it sometimes slows down when multiple activities are conducted at the same time. The laptop also gets a bit slow when running too many browsers at the same time.
I use my primary laptop for most tasks including lots of internet browsing, writing thousands of words on a regular basis, video calling and photo editing. The Fujitsu laptop was able to handle these tasks seamlessly, only occasionally when many tasks were performed at the same time, the device showed signs of shutter.
Although the performance where Fujitsu could offer better in my opinion, the keyboard experience I personally liked. The keys are well spaced and provide enough travel. The keys are also quite clickable. Since a large part of my work involves writing, I have been able to easily adjust to the keyboard and prefer to use it for my daily writing.
Interestingly, it also provides a two-level backlight that allows users to use the device easily even in a dark room. Like the keyboard, the precision trackpad is also quite responsive and in my opinion the right size.
The laptop has plenty of connection ports including an Ethernet port, a microSD card, two USB Type-A and two USB Type-C ports, an HDMI and a 3.5mm jack.
The device has side stereo speakers, which ensures that the sound produced will not be stained at any time. But as far as performance or sound quality is concerned, I believe it could have been a bit better. When making video calls, I often had to turn off the AC in the room to hear the speaker clearly.
The Fujitsu 2-in-1 laptop includes a 5-megapixel camera just above the keyboard, enabling users to conveniently click photos despite being folded in tablet mode. Just above the screen is a 2-megapixel FHD webcam and Windows Hello support, which is quite fast when unlocking the screen.
Fujitsu UH-X2-in-1 laptop battery
The Fujitsu UH-X2-in-1 convertible laptop is loaded with a 50Wh battery, which didn’t last very long in my busy working day. The laptop was able to last about 6 hours on a busy day, which is certainly not the best. The device takes quite some time to fully charge. It takes about two hours to complete the charge from 0-100 percent.
Fujitsu UH-X2-in-1 Laptop: Should You Buy It?
Overall, the Fujitsu UH-X2-in-1 laptop is a good package and provides customers with all the important features they are looking for in their laptops.
It is interesting to note that the Fujitsu laptop provides all the necessary connectivity options, a great keyboard experience, good performance, a study build quality and it is extremely light weight which allows users to easily manage it. There are also some areas for improvement. In my opinion, the battery life and design could have been a bit better, especially because of the hefty price it charges consumers.
I believe, for writers like me, the Fujitsu 2-in-1 convertible laptop is one of the best options available in the Indian market right now, of course, if the buyer is willing to spend that hefty price.
