Features

While the HP Envy 5020 printer comes with a 2.2” display screen, the HP Envy 6055 printer does not possess any. Both the printers have a built-in display that can easily print up to 9.8 pages per minute and 22 pages per minute, respectively. Known to be productive printers among other HP models, both HP Envy 5020 and HP Envy 6055 printers possess the duplex printing feature. It makes the workflow a lot better.

Being HP printers, it is a job made easy courtesy of the HP Smart app. They provide exceptional wireless connectivity options, such as AirPrint, Mopria Print service, and Wi-Fi Direct.

Review

When you get to compare the HP Envy 5020 printer and the HP Envy 6055 printer, there is no way that the 5020 printer is superior to the 6055 printer. The HP Envy 6055 printer sits right on top, checking all the boxes, from printing speeds to the wide range of features. While both printers are fairly usable for home or small office, the HP Envy 6055 printer has a really low page yield and a regular replacement of cartridges is needed.

The printers are family-friendly. With good printing qualities and excellent color accuracy, both the printers are suitable for printing good family photos. Unfortunately, of the two printers, the HP Envy 5020 printer has a low page yield (which means there needs to be a regular replacement of the ink cartridges).
