Schenker Vision 16 2023 Review: 16 inch lightweight with many ports

Featherweight ultrabook. The new Schenker Vision 16 premium ultrabook with a lightweight magnesium chassis has the newest Intel CPUs and a matte WQHD screen with 240 Hz. It is pretty upgradable, as usual with Schenker.
Schenker Vision 16 Ultrabook with 240 Hz display

Aside from the Vision 16 Pro, Schenker also offers the Vision 16. The especially lightweight 16 inch ultrabook offers the newest Intel Raptor Lake chip Core i7-13700H. Dedicated GPUs are reserved for the Pro models. While last years model of the Vision 16 achieved a weight of 1.45 kg, the new model weights 1.5 kg, which still makes it one of the lightest 16 inch laptops of the market.

Instead of the 90 Hz screen of last years model, the new Vision 16 gets the 240 Hz WQXGA panel of the Pro variant. Liquid metal to transfer the heat of the Core i7-13700H is still utilized, though the cooling system was reworked to make the Vision 16 less noisy under load.

The Vision 16 is available from €1.539. This base model has 16 GB DDR5-4800 memory and a 500 GB M.2 SSD by Samsung. Our review model is equipped with 32 GB memory and a 1 TB M.2 Samsung 990 Pro SSD. With Windows, the reviewed version is available for roughly €1,660.

Update 30.08.2023: Because of the weak result, we repeated the DiskSpd benchmark. The same review unit was used, with a clean Windows installation. The results improved significantly, leading to a better total score of 88.6 percent instead of 88.4 percent. This means the total rating is now 89 instead of 88 percent.

Chassis - 1.5 kg magnesium laptop

The chassis is identical to the Vision 16 Pro and pretty much unchanged to the preceding model. We are reviewing the silver variation, while we reviewed the Vision 16 Pro in black. The silver version stands out more and reminds us of the MacBook Pro 16, due to the oversized touchpad. The magnesium chassis (base and screen cover) keeps the weight low with just 1.5 kg. There is only a slight give in the center of the keyboard, otherwise the chassis is rigid. The hinges are not very strong and allow for a good amount of screen wobble.

Connectivity - Thunderbolt 4, full size SD card reader and many USB ports

The ports are identical to the Vision 16 Pro, too. Dongles or adapters are not necessary for this ultrabook, thanks to the good port selection. Compared with a MacBook Air, the Vision 16 has basically all the ports most people will need. On the left, there is a 3.5mm audio jack and a full size SD card slot. The two USB A 3.2 Gen 1 ports make dongles for a mouse or keyboard unnecessary. Also practical is the HDMI port, though this is only HDMI 2.0b, not HDMI 2.1. The Thunderbolt 4 port on the left and the USB C port on the right complete the connectivity options. Thanks to the dedicated proprietary charging port, none of the other ports are occupied during charging. The only thing missing is an Ethernet jack.

SD card reader

The Schenker Vision 16 has an SD card reader, but it is a pretty slow one, as the 22.7 MB/s write speed and 27.7 MB/s read speed we measured with our reference card (Angelbird AV Ori V60) attest. For heavy users, an external card reader might be the better option. For casual use, the card reader should suffice.

Communication

The AX201 WiFi 6 module in the Vision 16 delivered good results while receiving data, but it showed weaknesses when sending data. The experience may vary though, as the same WLAN module in the nearly identical Schenker Vision 16 Pro delivered better results.

Webcam

The FHD webcam of the Schenker Vision 16 can create acceptable pictures. It is sufficient for video conferencing, as long as lighting conditions are not bad. The 2 megapixel webcam enables a biometric log-in via Windows Hello, thanks to the integrated IR sensor.

Maintenance

The bottom cover of the Schenker Vision 16 is secured with a total of nine screws. The four screws on the front and the middle screw on the back are shorter than the other screws. The internal space is very similar to the Vision 16 Pro except for the missing GPU, the lower amount of heatpipes and the smaller right fan. The last aspect will become relevant for our performance measurements. 

Users of the Vision 16 are enabled to change both RAM modules, the WiFi modules, the M.2 SSD and the battery. There is also a free second M.2 SSD slot.

Warranty

Schenker offers a base warranty of 24 months, which includes Pickup & Return service as well as a fast repair in the first six months. At will, a 36 month warranty can be selected and expanded with various warranty packages, like a fast repair for the whole warranty period.

Input devices - huge glass clickpad, but less-than-ideal keyboard layout.

The input devices of the Vision 16 are solid. The touchpad is very large and precise, but there are some weaknesses when it comes to the keyboard.

Keyboard

The keyboard has a dedicated numblock with full-sized arrow keys, shortening the right Shift key and displacing the additional enter key of the numblock. The numblock is a rather compressed version and not very usable for quick number entry. This begs the question why Schenker included the numblock at all, as the whole keyboard is shifted to the left because of it. Due to the shifted keyboard and the shorter right Shift key, typing is negatively impacted and the keyboard requires a longer time to get used to it.

As far as the keys them self go, the offer a very good and precise typing feel with a solid, not too loud typing noise. It is backlit with two levels of brightness and all keys are lighted evenly.

Touchpad

A highlight of the Vision 16 and the Pro version is the large glass clickpad (15.4 x 10 cm). Using the trackpad is easy and thanks to the large surface, gestures and cursor movement are smooth. The precision of this touchpad is very good. It could be slightly less noise when it comes to the click mechanism though, and hitting the right-click area can be tricky.

One of the highlights of the Vision 16 ultrabook 2023 is the new WQXGA panel (2,560 x 1,600), which was exclusive to the Pro version with last years model. Instead of 90 Hz, this years moodel of the Vision 16 offers a refresh rate of 240 Hz - unusual for office laptops.

Despite the fact that both versions of the Vision 16 use the same screen this year, the Vision 16 slightly outperformed the Vision 16 Pro in our review. We attribute these differences to normal quality variance between panels. The brightness of the screen should reach 350 cd/m² according to Schenker, which our measurements confirm. 

The high frequency of 240 Hz creates a smooth user experience. The real advantages of this smoothness while gaming are wasted on the Vision 16 though, unless it is combined with an external Thunderbolt GPU.

* ... smaller is better

The measurements of the black value came out to a solid 0.28 cd/m², which results in a contrast ratio of the screen of more than 1,200:1. Still, the IPS display can not compete with the deep black values of OLED panels.

The deltaE value of the screen prior to calibration sits at a good 1.7 and we were able to improve it down to 1.0. In comparison, the display of the Vision 16 Pro had a deltaE of 3.4 prior to calibration. The difference is especially noticeable in terms of the greyscale. Ex factory, the Pro version had a greyscale deltaE of 4.9, while our Vision 16 review sample had a much lower greyscale deltaE of 1.3.

We did not detect and blue-hue like with the screen of the Vision 16 Pro. Due to the good ex-factory calibration, we did not use the Schenker color profile in the control center. The difference in measurements between Vision 16 and Vision 16 Pro show that the quality of the screen is luck. As always, we the color profile we created for the Schenker Vision 16 is available to download for free in the grey box above.

As the screen covers the sRGB gamut almost completely, the Vision 16 2023 is suited for simple photo editing. For professional photographers or videographers, the screen is not good enough, as the wider AdobeRGB and DCI P3 are not cover sufficiently.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 4 ms rise
↘ 4 ms fall
The screen shows fast response rates in our tests and should be suited for gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 15 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.8 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
11 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 5 ms rise
↘ 6 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 18 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (34.3 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 18719 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Thanks to the matte screen, the Vision 16 is usable in outdoor environments. Direct sunlight should be avoided though, as it makes work rather hard.

The viewing angle stability is good, but not at the level of OLED screens. The display loses contrast when viewed from extreme angles.

Performance - Core i7-13700H can not run at full capacity

Instead of last years Intel Core i7-12700H. the new model of the Vision 16 offers the newer Intel Core i7-13700H. While the predecessor offered a RTX 3050 Ti, this year model only contains the integrated GPU of the Intel processor. Also part of the package is 32 GB DDR5 RAM and a 1 TB M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD.

Testing conditions

Schenker offers multiple profiles in the Control center application, but the manual profile is not available anymore as it was the predecessor. The TDP thresholds of the processor are thus not changeable by the user. All performance benchmarks are done in the "Enthusiast" mode, with a TDP of 45 W. In the mode "Quiet" of the Control Center app of Schenker, the TDP is fixed to 15 W. For the battery testing, we use the "Balanced" mode, which also has a TDP limit of 45 W.

Processor

In the Vision 16, the same Core i7-13700H from Intel's Raptor Lake generation is used as in the Vision 16 Pro. Since the power limit is rather limited, the temperatures stay low, but performance suffers and the processor is slower compared with the Vision 16 Pro. The Multi core performance in the Cinebench R15 loop of the Vision 16 is roughly 15 percent worse than the Vision 16 Pro. We attribute this lower result to the worse cooling system of the Vision 16. Since we measured a rather low temperature of 62 degrees during the Cinebench loop, the processor does have headroom to perform better. In battery mode, the CPU is limited to 35 W, which lowers the Multi core performance by 20 percent.

Mass storage

In the Schenker Vision 16, there are two PCIe 4.0 slots for SSDs. In our review sample is a 1 TB Samsung 990 Pro M.2 SSD. The benchmark results with DiskSpd show clear weaknesses in terms of read and write speeds of the SSD. The AS SSD measurements paint a better picture, with speeds more fitting for a high performance SSD. The same Samsung 990 Pro SSD was used in the review sample of the Vision 16 Pro and delivered better results there.

Update 30.08.2023: Because of the weak result, we repeated the DiskSpd benchmark. The same review unit was used, with a clean Windows installation. The results are much improved, though not as good as the Schenker Vision 16 pro. Even under prolonged load, the SSD performance stays stable.
