Laptops with Windows 10 and Snapdragon 835 SoC in the MWC, first contact

In the MWC 2018 we had the possibility of having a first contact with the first generation of laptops with Windows 10 using Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processors, some notebooks that give the starting signal to a new line of products. Commenting with the brands how they see the landscape of this hardware, they say it is clear that they still have a long way to go but the general thinking is positive since the user will not found a fragmented ecosystem like Windows 10 RT.

The first model we could test was the  Lenovo Miix 630 a 2-in-1 model that has a 12.3-inch screen, 1920 x 1280 resolution, 48-hour battery up to 20 hours with screen on playing video at 150 nits, has Easy recognition system, integrated touch pen and Lenovo eSIM for its integrated 4G modem. In this model we had 8 GB of RAM and the Windows 10 Pro system version, we must said that the system moved very smoothly and no appreciable difference is noticed with another conventional laptop moving the Windows environment or opening Office in full version . Keep in mind that we could not prove anything outside the Windows 10 preset system but the feeling was positive.

The second model that we had the opportunity to test was the ASUS NovaGo TP370QL in a demo version where we could see the battery life time with the screen on that theoretically arrives until 22 hours. In this model has a 13.3″ screen with 1920 × 1080 resolution, this version has 4 GB of RAM and the operating system was Windows 10 Pro, as we seen Windows 10 S is missing in combat (luckily). In this case it also behaved correctly but the system did feel slower perhaps because of the limitation of RAM as it would be with any other x86 laptop. In general, as we see a quite positive experience but limited by the few real tests that we have been able to perform. We hope to soon to see more in detail one of these models and perform all kinds of tests.
