Storage Performance and Battery Life
The Eve V, at least the model I received to review with 512GB of storage, uses an Intel SSD 600p, which is an entry-level PCIe NVMe SSD. You do get PCIe speeds, similar to the Samsung PM971 used in the Surface Pro.
Storage performance is good, often matching a number of top-end ultraportables or even outperforming them in tasks such as sequential reads. The 600p isn't as strong when it comes to write performance, though it still provides enough speed to allow fast app loading and basic I/o tasks.
The Eve V's battery life is pretty good, which basically validates their choice to use a Y-series CPU in conjunction with the 48 Wh internal battery. In tests like PCMark Home, the Eve V outperforms the HP Spectre x360, which uses a 58 Wh battery (21% larger) with an 8% larger display; a great result. It falls well within the range of devices we've tested with great battery life, so I think people will be pleased with these results.
