Hello, guys. Today, in this article, I am going to review the HP 14 DK0093AU laptop in detail. In addition to that, I will also compare it with other laptops that I have reviewed.

Table of Contents

So, let's get started. But, before I proceed, read out my article on the explanation of laptop specs to get the basic idea on specs. Furthermore, I have received this review unit from New Delhi. And, it has the following specs.

Technical Specs of HP 14 DK0093AU

  • Wireless Connectivity: Bluetooth 4.2 and 802.11ac Wi-Fi

The Build Quality and Material

All plastic build of HP 14 DK0093AU laptop.

So, this HP 14 DK0093AU has all plastic build with a smooth lid and interior. The color is almost light silver, and there is an HP logo on the center of the lid. In addition to that, all the edges and corners are rounded.

So, the build quality is similar to Asus VivoBook Ultra 15 and Lenovo IdeaPad S145.

Dimensions and Weight

The dimensions of this laptop are 32.4 cms (12.8-inch) in width, 22.6 cms (9-inch) in depth, and 2 cms (0.8-inch) in height. The weight of this laptop was measured using a propert weight meter. And, it is for

  • Laptop only: 1.74 kg (3.84 lbs)
  • Laptop with charging accessories: 1.86 kg (4.1 lbs)

The purpose of measuring the weight with accessories is to give you an idea about the weight that may need to carry while traveling. So, this laptop is lighter than Asus VivoBook Ultra 15 (1.8 kg) and Lenovo IdeaPad S145 (1.85 kg). But heavier than Mi Notebook 14 Horizon (1.35 kg) and Dell Inspiron 14 3493 (1.7 kg). When compared in terms of weight to other laptops of similar price, I found this machine at 3rd position out of 6. See the comparison in the below chart.

A chart on the comparison of the weight of HP 14 DK0093AU laptop with others.

Display Quality and Color Reproduction

Size and Quality

The 14-inch FHD 60Hz IPS display of DK0093AU laptop.

The 14-inch 1080 60Hz IPS non-touch display is surrounded by almost 1cm thick bezels. It has good viewing angles, thanks to the IPS panel. So, it has a better one when compared to Dell 14 3493 (WVA panel), Lenovo IdeaPad S145 (VA panel), and VivoBook M513 (VA panel).

It found nearly similar in quality except for bezels to Mi Notebook 14 Horizon.

Color Reproduction Efficiency

The chart of screen color gamut results

As shown in the above image, Spyder 5 PRO has ended up the testing with 61% of SRGB, 51% of AdobeRGB, and 44% of NTSC color gamut results. So, the display is falling on average side in terms of color gamut. However, the results are pretty good when compared to other laptops of similar price range. See it in the below chart.

A chart on the comparison of screen color gamut of this laptop with other laptops of similar price range.

When compared, I found this laptop at second position out of 6. It's similar to Mi Notebook 14 Horizon. So, overall, not a good display for content creators like professional photo & video editors, designers, and like.

Is the display enough bright?

A chart on brightness levels vs nits reached by a display of this laptop.

The HP DK0093AU's display has reached 231 Nits at 100% of screen brightness. Based on the results, It looks a little low brighter when compared to Acer Nitro 5 (246 nits), Mi Notebook 14 Horizon (250 nits), Asus VivoBook M513 (245 nits).

A chart on the comparison of display nits at 100% of screen brightness of this laptop with other laptops.

When compared with other laptops, I found it average in terms of Nits. In addition to that, the IPS display has below an average screen contrast ratio of 740:1. Except for screen contrast, It seems okay.

At thanalysis, we recommend at least 300 nits for the display to properly see the content of screen during sun light. Both Lenovo IdeaPad S540 and ThinkPad E14 have average display nits, 299 and 306, respectively. At the same time, their prices are also quite higher.

Screen Flex

When intentionally moved the screen up and down with fingers, I found some flex there. The flex was caused due to the plastic lid, and it was little more than average. But, that wasn't a problem for me during normal use.

In addition to that, the hinge is running mostly along the base. While trying to open the display with one finger, I failed. You must have to put your second hand on the base to open this machine. So, that demonstrates the unevenly distributed weight across the hinge.

Keyboard – Tactile, Flex, Build, and RGB Backlit?

Keyboard Flex and Build Quality

Keyboard has silver keys with little darker fonts on it. The keyboard is build of plastic material.

The keyboard has a smooth plastic island. The silver color plastic keys have little darker fonts on it. They are a little bigger than average, and the fonts on them are not easily visible as compared to laptops with black keys.

While pushing it down hard using fingers with fair pressure, I found little flex there. But, I faced no issues during normal use. If you want to go for a laptop with almost no keyboard flex, then go for Dell Inspiron 14 3493.

Overall, in terms of keyboard flex and build quality, I found it pretty good.

Backlit?

It's a bit awkward that this keyboard has no backlit. A keyboard without a backlit account more minutes in battery life, but you will have a problem during typing in a low ambient room. If backlit concerns more for you then, it's better to go with Asus VivoBook M513. It has a 3-level of single zonal white backlit.

Tactile Feedback?

Typing experience consists of many things like tactile feedback, clicky keys, typing noise, shallow feeling for poorly designed keyboard, and many more.

During typing, I found the keys were traveling between 1.3 to 1.5mm distance down. It means that the keys are giving inconsistent tactile feedback. And, some of the keys are not. In addition to that, I felt the keys a little bigger than average when I have typed on it for the first time. But, over time, I got used to it.

In addition to that, the power button is placed at the top of the keyboard. It looks a bit separated from it. So, there are no chances of the accidental wrong press.

Small and Messy 2 Arrow Keys

Small and Messy 4 arrow keys of the keyboard of this laptop.

The Up and Down arrow keys are smaller and placed quite close to each other. Such a placement always led to accidental wrong press. And, like Dell laptops, Lenovo IdeaPads, and ThinkPads, I always complain about these small arrow keys.

But, they aren't a problem for office use. And, this isn't a gaming laptop. Hence, you don't have to consider it important.

So, overall, If the backlit and consistent tactile feedback doesn't matter for you then, this is the machine for you else better going with Acer Nitro 5 AN515. Its keyboard has both backlit and tactile feedback. VivoBook M513 has also a backlit keyboard but, it isn't tactile.

Precision Touchpad?

Smooth, responsive, and accurate 4.5-inch wider plastic touchpad with two dedicated buttons at below for clicks.

This 4.5-inch wider plastic touchpad is smooth and responsive. It is not Windows recognized precision unit. In addition to that, it doesn't click down anywhere and, it has two separate buttons at below to register clicks. Unlike Dell Inspiron 14 3493, it found accurate at gestures handling.

It's average in terms of quality when compared to the laptops in the ₹50,000 price range. Furthermore, it is a little solid in terms of the build as it doesn't bend down. While reviewing my Mi Notebook 14 laptop, I found its touchpad was bending down little more than average.

For a precision touchpad, go with Acer Aspire 3 A315-23 laptop.

Still, I recommend buying a dedicated mouse.

Fingerprints on the Smooth Surface

Fingerprints on the smooth silver color matte plastic finish.

After using this HP 14 DK0093AU laptop for 8 days, I found the fingerprints were shown up but, they weren't directly visible as the smooth plastic matte finish has a silver color. In addition to that, I found no color change in the interior over the use.

I am telling this because while reviewing the Alienware m15 R2 gaming laptop, I found its white interior slightly yellowish at some part. Also, it was hard to clean. But that's not the case with this machine.

RAM

HP has equipped an 8GB of Single Channel 2400MHz DDR4 RAM which can also be upgradable to 16GB. So, a quite big amount of RAM for you to make the multitasking better and smoother compared to a 4GB RAM.

See below other laptops that allows you to upgrade the RAM.

  • Acer Aspire 3 A315 (review) – 2666MHz 8GB Single Channel DDR4 – Upgrade to 12GB
  • Asus VivoBook Ultra 15 M512 (review) – 3200MHz 8GB Dual Channel DDR4 – Upgrade to 12GB
  • Lenovo IdeaPad S145 (review) – 2400MHz 8GB Single Channel DDR4 – Upgrade to 12GB

Furthermore, Dual channel RAM gives better performance than the Single channel one. Asus VivoBook Ultra 15 has Dual channel 3200MHz DDR4 RAM

Processor and Graphics

As my review unit was restricted from touching the internals, I was unable to remove the bottom cover. But that didn’t stop me from getting internals’ performance.

AMD's Ryzen-5 4 Core 8 Thread processor and Vega 8 GPU is powering the performance of this laptop. The CPU has a base speed of 2.1GHz which can be boosted to the maximum of 3.7GHz.

To make this DK0093AU laptop even faster, HP has put 256GB of PCIe-based SSD storage in addition to 1TB of 5400RPM hard drive. So, your project files are going to load quickly. You can edit multiple large files very smoothly, thanks to the solid-state storage.

Now, let's check some of the CPU benchmarks.

Cinebench R20 Score

I have taken 3 runs of Cinebench to show you an average of it. Furthermore, Cinebench is a tool used to measure CPU performance.

As this HP laptop has an AMD processor, CPU undervolting isn't the case for this machine. And, normally, for laptops under 60,000 price, CPU undervolting doesn't make a noticeable change - at least what I found. Hence, the CPU Cinebench score was tested with and without a cooling pad to show you whether buying a cooling pad is worthy or not.

The chart of Cinebench r20 score of HP 14 DK0093AU laptop for with and without a cooling pad.

So, without a cooling pad, the single and multi-core Cinebench scores were 354 and 1476, respectively. With a cooling pad, the multi-core score has raised by 1 and, the single-core score was at its previous position. Here, a cooling pad is found ineffective to increase the score.

In addition to that, when compared this HP 14 DK0093AU in terms of Cinebench R20 Single core score to other laptops of similar price range, I found this one at last position. See it in the below chart.

A chart on the comparison of Cinebench R20 single core score of this laptop with other laptops.

In this comparison, Dell Inspiron 14 3493 is found at first position with a score of 443 followed by Asus VivoBook Ultra 15 (441 score) and Lenovo IdeaPad S145 (441 score). An interesting thing here is that Mi Notebook has just scored little above than this laptop despite Core i7 CPU.

When compared in terms of multi core score to the same laptops, I found Asus VivoBook Ultra 15 at 1st position out of 6 with a score of 1852 followed by Dell Inspiron 14 3493 (1751 score). In this comparison, Mi Notebook has performed worst with just 891 multi core score.

A chart on the comparison of Cinebench R20 Multi core score of this laptop with others.

So, overall, this laptop is quite powerful, thanks to the Intel Core i5 CPU. Now, the question is what these scores tell.

First of all, During the testing, Cinebench R20 puts an excessive load on the CPU to execute the tasks. By doing so, it will check machine’s cooling solution also which other tool doesn’t except for 3DMark. So, when the CPU comes under a heavy load, thermal throttling takes place in the processor and it reduces the performance.

For example, If your CPU has max clock speeds of 4.5GHz, then you will reach 4.1GHz max during gaming or stress tests. The reason for not picking up the limit is thermal throttling. So, If the Cinebench R20 score of the laptop is high means the laptop has high powerful CPU with a better thermal management.

In the case of this HP 14 DK0093AU, the multi core score is 1476. However, it’s less compared to Asus VivoBook and Dell Inspiron 14 3493. Take a note that Asus has equipped Ryzen processor in its VivoBook while Dell has an Intel Core i5. So, a big difference in scores between VivoBook and this DK0093AU is in the cooling solution and thermal throttling.

Now, let’s check Geekbench benchmarks.

Geekbench 5 Scores

A chart on the Geekbench 5 single and multi core scores of this laptop.

When tested this laptop using Geekbench 5, it has scored 674 for single core and 2718 for multi core. In the following chart, I have compared both scores with other 5 laptops of same price to give you an idea of what to expect from this laptop.

A chart on the comparison of Geekbench 5 Single core score of this HP 14 DK0093AU laptop with other similar priced laptops.

In the Single core score comparison, this laptop has secured last position. The 1st position is hold by Dell Inspiron 14 3493 with a score of 1161. Let’s compared the Multi core scores.

A chart on the comparison of Geekbbench 5 Multi core score of this laptop with others.

In the Multi core score comparison, this machine has found at last. The first position is secured by Lenovo IdeaPad S145 with a score of 3851 followed by Dell Inspiron 14 3493 (3476). So, Geekbench performance of this laptop is quite on the poor side.

Now, what does this score tell? It tells the performance of the laptop. The higher the score, the higher the performance. Here, you have to consider the multi core score. Look, Geekbench doesn’t put an excessive load on the CPU like Cinebench R20. And, Geekbench consider mainly productivity tasks like emailing, browsing, multitasking, and etc to evaluate the hardware.

And, such ways cannot give you an idea about the cooling solution. Because tiny tasks doesn’t make much weight on the CPU. Hence, If the laptop has higher Geekbench multi core score means its capability for productivity is much better. But, at the same time, information about thermal throttling and cooling solution will remain unanswered by this tool.

Hence, for gamers and programmers, Geekbench isn’t a tool to evaluate the laptop. It’s better to consider Cinebench here. And, for normal users or office users, this one seems to be getting the job done.

As this machine has a quite lower Geekbench score, it's not recommended for everyday productivity tasks. You should go for Lenovo IdeaPad or Dell Inspiron 14 3493 laptops than this one - frankly speaking. Let's check PCMark 10 benchmarks.

PCMark 10 Score

A chart on the comparison of PCMark 10 score of this laptop with other laptops.

When tested this HP 14 DK0093AU using PCMark 10, I found it at last position with a score of 3789. Mi Notebook 14 Horizon is at 1st position in this comparison with a little higher score of 4391.

PCMark 10 scores involves tasks we do everyday like web browsing, video conferencing, some office work on MS Excel, or entire MS Office, digital content creations like video and photo editing. It also checks for gaming, but for non-gaming laptops I skip that test.

So, PCMark 10 score is also similar to the Geekbench. It’s true that the way they choose to evaluate the hardware is different but the same information you won’t get in its score that you get in the Cinebench R20.

In our case, the comparison of this laptop with other similar priced laptops revealed that Mi Notebook 14 Horizon has highest PCMark 10 score. That means the better productivity. But, at the same time, if you look at Cinebench multi core score, you will find it at last but this one at 3rd position.

It means Mi’s notebook has a quite poor cooling solution than this laptop. So, heavy users shouldn’t buy it. At the same time, It has a highest productivity capabilities due to Core i7 CPU and MX330 GPU.

Now, let’s check 3DMark Fire Strike benchmarks.

3DMark Fire Strike Score

A chart on the comparison of 3DMark Fire Strike score of this laptop with others.

When tested this laptop for 3DMark Fire Strike benchmarks, I found this laptop at average position with a score of 3563. 3DMark represents the graphics rendering capabilities of the laptop.

In this comparison, Mi Notebook is found at the first position (3912 score) due to its MX330 NVIDIA Graphics with 2GB of memory.

Average CPU Clock Speed

The CPU clock speed was measured by performing the stress test using AIDA64. The results of an average of 3 runs are in the below image.

The chart of average CPU clock speed measured during stress test using AIDA64 tool with and without a cooling pad.

In the stress test without a cooling pad, the CPU speed was 3271MHz. And, it was the same even when I have used a cooling pad.

In addition to that, It’s useless to measure the GPU clock speed. Because it’s integrated on the same silicon board. It’s not for heavy tasks. Hence, it’s better to skip. Furthermore, this HP 14 DK0093AU machine is neither a gaming machine nor it has even MX series GPU. So, it's void to conduct the TDP (Thermal power design) test.

As gaming requires more resources, it’s become worthy of measuring the TDP and different ways to reduce it. But that’s not the case with this machine.

Video Editing Performance

The video editing performance of this laptop was tested by two ways.

  • Average of the video export time
  • Multitasking during video export

Average of the video export time

In this test, I have exported the 16 minutes and 13 seconds long video in YouTube 4K H.264 preset using Adobe Premier CC. And I have repeated the same test 4 times further to show you the average result.

The chart on the video export time taken by this laptop.

So, during my video export test using Adobe Premier CC, this HP 14 DK0093AU laptop has exported the video in an average of 28 minutes and 48 seconds. That's too much. See in the below chart where I have compared it with other 5 laptops of nearly same price.

A chart on the comparison of video export time of this laptop with others.

In the video export time comparison, this laptop is found at 3rd position. Surprisingly, Mi Notebook 14 Horizon is at 1st position with 1100 seconds of export time. If you see the overall comparison then all laptops except Mi Notebook have taken too much time for video export. And, at the same time, this one has also higher screen color gamut values than this one. So, that makes Notebook 14 much better than this laptop for video editing.

Multitasking during video export

The motive to conduct this test wasn’t other than to rate the smoothness of this laptop when the CPU is busy with intense work. I have checked the following during the video export, the touchpad, keyboard, and laptop’s response time.

So, During this test, I found this laptop almost laggy. As it has no dedicated NVIDIA graphics, not even of the MX series, the expectation of good performance is useless. Overall, I found it below an average for video editing like Inspiron 3493, IdeaPad S145, and Asus VivoBook Ultra 15 when compared to Mi Notebook 14 Horizon edition.

Thermal Performance

This test was performed to tell you whether the cooling pad is efficient in temperature reduction with stable or increased performance. For the stress test, I have used the AIDA64 tool. So, the results are in the below image.

A chart on the average CPU temperatures at idle and during stress tests.

At idle, the CPU was 48 degrees C hot. In a stress test at an auto fan without a cooling pad, the CPU was found 79 degrees hot. With a cooling pad, its temperature was reduced by 2 degrees. So, that's the result of an average of 3 runs.

So, the use of a cooling pad has shown a change of 2 degrees – to be frank – it’s not noticeable. Hence, my recommendations are on the “Not to buy” part.

Furthermore, in the following chart, I have compared the temperatures of laptops (the same and below price) measured during stress test at an auto fan.

A chart on the comparison of CPU temperature of this laptop with others.

As per the above chart, this laptop found to have a better thermal management. In this comparison, it is found at the second position after Acer Aspire 3 A315-23 (78 degrees Celsius). This temperature readings gives you an idea about its temperature when you are dealing with processor-intensive tasks like video editing, programming, and like.

In this comparison, Mi notebook 14 is found to be bad in cooling solution (86 degrees Celsius)

Laptop’s Exterior Temperature

At idle at an auto fan, both the palm rest and a keyboard were found pretty cool.

During the stress test, the keyboard was found at mid 40 C. The top of the base was near 50 C. At the same time, Both touchpad and a palm rest found cool. And nearly identical results obtained when used the cooling pad.

So, in terms of thermal management, this laptop is pretty average compared to other laptops I have reviewed. When compared to Asus VivoBook M513, this one found little less in cooling it down.

Here, again, the cooling pad is found unworthy for this laptop.

Fans Noise Level

A chart on fans noise level produced by this laptop during stress test and at idle.

This HP 14 DK0093AU laptop has only one fan, like, in other laptops in ₹50,000 price range.

At idle, the fan's noise was 33.1dB - completely silent, even than other laptops I have tested. During the stress test, it was 48.9dB louder. So, In the conference room, this laptop won't distract you and the guy sitting next to you. Furthermore, see in the below chart where I have compared the fan’s noise produced by other laptops.

A chart on the comparison of Fan noise of this HP 14 DK0093AU with other laptops of similar price.

As per the above chart, this laptop is found at average position. In this comparison, Lenovo IdeaPad S145 is found to have the most silent fan (47.1dB) followed by Mi Notebook 14 Horizon (47.9dB). And, Dell Inspiron 14 3493 is found to have the most noisy fan (50.7dB) in this comparison.

In addition to that, the gaming laptops have the most noisy fans. If you read my review articles of Dell Alienware m15 R2, Lenovo Legion 7i, MSI GS65 Stealth-004, and Razer Blade Pro 17 gaming laptops, you will find the noise emitted by their fans was reaching 60dB. And, that’s become equal to the noise emitted by washing machine, hair dryer, and electric toothbrush. But, this one isn’t a gaming laptop. Such scenario is not the case with this laptop.

Camera and Microphone

The 720p camera and a microphone with status LED at the top bezel of HP 14 DK0093AU laptop.

The 720p camera and a microphone could be at least up to the mark. It's really not for the video conference. During a video call, I found it was capturing the picture with a lot of distraction. And, the microphone was completely useless when used outdoor.

Furthermore, both are placed at the top bezel. Here, this laptop has no Windows Hello support, not even it has a fingerprint reader. For little better camera quality, go with Asus VivoBook Ultra 15 M513.

When compared to other 5 laptops of same price range, I found this one at the last position. See it in the following chart.

A chart on the comparison of camera quality of this laptop with other laptops.

In terms camera quality comparison, this one has gained last position along with Dell Inspiron 14 3493 laptop. When compared in terms of microphone quality to the same laptops, the results are pretty same for this machine. See in the below chart.

A chart on the comparison of microphone quality of this laptop with others.

Speakers

The 2 top-firing speakers are placed at the top of the keyboard underneath the machine. One thick belt of tiny holes which is located just top of the keyboard is for the audio outlet. The speakers are not loud at maximum volume. In addition to that, they also sound a bit tiny with a little bass present.

Digitech's sound level has metered the 78.1dB of the sound level while watching the YouTube video at maximum volume. For more detailed information about speakers' quality, I have done the LatencyMon test. And, the LatencyMon results were just an average.

A chart on the comparison of speaker's quality and sound level of this laptop with other similar price laptops.

As per the above chart, this HP 14 DK0093AU is found at 2nd last position out of 6. But, its sound is very clear to hear like Asus VivoBook Ultra 15 and Acer Aspire 3. Furthermore, Asus VivoBook is found to have awesome combination of speaker's loudness and clarity compared to other laptops of similar price range.

Ports on the HP 14 DK0093AU laptop

Left Side

Ports on the left side of this machine.

On the left side of this laptop, there are the following ports from left to right.

  • 1 Kensington Lock
  • 1 USB Type-C Gen-1 (For data transfer only)
  • 1 SD card reader

Right Side

Ports on the right side of this machine.

On the left side of this laptop, there are the following ports from left to right.

  • 1 Audio/Combo jack
  • 2 USB 2.0 Type-A
  • 1 HDMI 2.0 output
  • 1 Gigabit Ethernet
  • 1 Power input

When compared to the same price laptops, I found 2 other laptops have this port. See in the below chart.

A chart on the comparison of the availability of USB Type-C port of this laptop with others.

Backside

HP seems not to be interested in putting anything than air exhausts on the back of the laptop.

Air Intake Vents

This HP 14 DK0093AU laptop has a mid-laptop-sized belt of air intake holes of almost one and a half inches thick. But, thermal tests revealed that even the cooling pad is unable to make any noticeable change in CPU's temperature.

Battery

The chart on the battery life test results for stress test and YouTube watching.

The 45Wh battery lasted for 1 hour and 32 minutes during the continuous stress test. And, during YouTube watching at 50% of screen brightness and background apps disabled, it has lasted for 6 hours and 51 minutes.

When compared in terms of battery capacity to the same laptops, I found this notebook is ranking on the 2nd position. See in the below chart.

A chart on the comparison of battery capacity of this laptop in Wh with others.

When compared in terms of battery life while watching YouTube to the same laptops, I found this notebook is ranking on the 2nd position out of 6. See in the below chart.

A chart on the comparison of battery life measured while watching YouTube of this laptop with others.

When compared in terms of battery life during stress test, the results are again found pretty same.

A chart on the comparison of battery life measured during stress test of this laptop with others.

So, in terms of battery life, this one is on the average line.

Storage

This laptop has got 256GB of PCIe-based solid-state storage in addition to 1TB of 5400RPM HDD to provide a possible high performance. I have used the CrystalDiskMark tool to test its speed. And the results are below.

A chart on the SSD storage speed test using CrystalDiskMark tool.

The SSD reading and write speeds are average, 1587MB/sec and 854MB/sec, respectively.

So, this is the end of this article. I haven't check any gaming benchmarks because AMD Vega 8 GPU isn't capable of gaming. It's even not capable of running emulators smoothly.
