Dell Inspiron 15 5585 sports the latest AMD with Graphics performance and outstanding results, particularly a leap ahead of the Intel UHD Graphics that should satisfy Fortnight gamers, rocket League, & other undemanding titles. The Inspiron 15 5585 is the AMD new version of the Intel-power Inspiron 15 5584, but this is more than a CPU swap. Our review below will show significant differences between the two models concerning the chassis, battery life, motherboard, and overall performance. This series is an inexpensive alternative to fancier models like the HP Specter series, Dell XPS series, Asus Zen Book series, and the Lenovo Yoga 900 series.

All current Inspiron 5585 SKUs come with AMD’s latest Zen+ CPUs ranging from the Ryzen 3 3200U – to Ryzen 5 3500U & Ryzen 7 3700U with integrated Vega graphics. While storage and RAM vary, the display remains fixed at 1080p IPS only. Today’s test unit is the higher-end configuration retailing for about 780 dollars to compete with another budget 15.6-inch multimedia laptop, including the HP Pavilion 15, Lenovo Idea Pad 720s, Asus Vivo Book S15, or the Acer Aspire 5.

Case for Inspiron 15 5584:
Dell Inspiron 15 5585 laptops are looking more and more like XPS laptops these days. Even the outer lid’s silver coloring and smooth surface texture are identical to the XPS 15, and first impressions from a visual standpoint are more impressive than others than an HP Pavilion 15 and a Lenovo Idea Pad 330. However, once you open up the lid, all the signs of a budget laptop begin to show. The palm rests and keyboard deck are made of a cheaper plastic than the outer lid & the plastic bezels aren’t nearly as sleek as the edge-to-edge glass bezels of the XPS 15. The chassis feels hollow & not as firm as it could have been, especially since there is slight-moderate flexing when pushing down on the center of the keyboard keys of Dell Inspiron 15 5585 and outer lid. Construction quality is more imperfect on our test unit as well as we can spot an uneven gap between the hinge and the chassis. The creaking is minimal, bright side, and the base is relatively rigid around the corners when considering its entry-level category.
Older Asus Vivo Book systems, for example, tend to creak and twist more easily. Even though it is similar to the Inspiron 15 5584, the weight and size are different from the 5585. The model AMD is slightly thinner (19.5 vs 22.5 mm), lighter (1.8 kg vs 1.9 kg) and shorter (359 mm vs 364 mm) than its Intel counterpart. It’s still relatively long in-depth due to the display’s thicker top and bottom bezels, and so several other 15.6-inch laptops are smaller, like the Asus Vivo Book S15 S532.
All the parts of Dell Inspiron 15 5585 are here but with a new USB Type-C port & a small change to port placement. All parts are easy to reach, with most of them now tightly packed along the left edge. It is worth mentioning that the RJ-45 port is Fast Ethernet only, or it doesn’t support Gaps transfer rates.

Dell advertises Power Delivery via USB Type-C, or we can confirm this as the system is compatible with our 130W USB Type-C charger. In addition, the system can charge via the proprietary AC adapter port and the USB Type-C port, making the former redundant.
SD Card Reader:
The integrated card reader of Dell Inspiron 15 5585 is fast as the pricier XPS series. For example, transferring 1 GB of pic from our UHS-II SD card to the desktop takes about 27 seconds compared to just 8 seconds on the XPS 15.
However, an inserted SD card still protrudes by about half its length or unlike on the HP Pavilion Gaming 18, where the SD card sits flush against the edge for safer transport.
As an AMD-powered laptop, it is understandable that the Dell Inspiron 15 5585 ships with a non-Intel WLAN module by default. The 1×1 Qualcomm Atheros QCA9377 performs at one-fourth the speed of the more common 2×2 Intel 9260.
However, performance remains sufficient or reliable for day-to-day browsing or streaming to the everyday home user. As shown below, the Qualcomm module is in the uncommon M.2 1630 form factor. The motherboard still supports M.22230 if users want to upgrade or swap WLAN modules.
The Dell Inspiron 15 5585 comes with the same LG Philips LP156WFC IPS panel on the recent Asus Vivo Book S15 S532F. These two laptops share similar contrast levels, color spaces and response times for a similar visual experience. The very narrow color space automatically ranks this panel as a budget offering fit for the inexpensive Inspiron family. Even subjectively, colors are not as vibrant as you may find on an Asus ZenBook and Dell Inspiron 15 5585 XPS.
The backlight is about half as the XPS 15, but it is otherwise similar to other budget laptops like the Lenovo IdeaPad 330. While we appreciate that there are no horrendous TN or 768p options, this is still an entry-level IPS display from top to bottom.
Display Response Times:
Display response time shows how fast the screen can change from one color to another.

Slow response times can lead to afterimages & cause moving objects to appear blurry. Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay attention to response time.
The critical layout may differ from the Inspiron 15 5584, but the backlit keys feel the same. Feedback is ever-so-slightly firmer than on the XPS 15, with click Enter and Space keys that typists can appreciate.
Unfortunately, the Arrow keys are tiny, and the lack of dedicated Page Up & Page Down keys makes this Laptop a poor choice for large spreadsheets compared to Intel Inspiron 15 5584.
The click pad is identical to the Inspiron 15 5584 down to its large dimensions (10.5 x 8 cm) or textured plastic surface.

We find cursor control to be smooth & accurate even if moving at slow speeds, but the feedback from clicking is still far weak & could have been firmer.
We stress the system to identify any potential throttling or stability issues. For example, when running Prime95, the CPU will spike up to 3.4 GHz for a few seconds before dropping to 2.7 GHz to maintain a core temperature of 88 C.
After about 10 to 12 minutes, however, clock rates continue to fall to 2.4 GHz for a slightly cooler core temperature of 83 C. This behavior mirrors our CodeBench loop test above, where performance drops steadily over time.
Battery Timing :
Although the 43 Why battery is small, actual runtimes are longer than average on the Dell Inspiron 15 5585 for the budget category. We can record a WLAN runtime of 7 hours compared to almost half that on the Inspiron 15 3585 and Idea Pad 330S when subjected to similar conditions.
Accessories & Warranty:
There are no accessories in the box than the standard manuals and AC adapter. However, the standard one-year limited warranty applies. Like HP and Lenovo, Dell Inspiron 15 5585 offers one of the broadest warranty options extending up to four years. Charging from empty to total capacity is slow at about 2 to 2.6 hours, whereas most Ultra books can fully recharge in 1.5 hours.
