ASUS Zenbook Flip review: With its regular additions of wide ranging laptops, Asus has made up quite a big name for itself in the PC/laptop market. Right now it has come up with a convertible laptop named ZenBook Flip. In most of the cases biggest drawback of any convertible laptop would be its short battery life. But in this case because of its power efficient Core m3 processor, Asus ZenBook Flip lasts over 9 hours. It is a combination of Asus’s thin and light laptops and a high-class convertible laptop. We have also done a full review of this laptop you can find the video link in the bottom.
ASUS Zenbook Flip review with details:
As its name suggests, ZenBook Flip is a 2-in-1 with a lid which can flip around and a touchscreen. When flipped around, the device can be used as a tablet and generally as a laptop. No fuss is encountered while launching the programs and switching between tabs is absolutely smooth. The speakers and the external ports are the only holes one will find on this ZenBook because it is totally fan less design. Because of this fan less design, it stays cool and nice even after hours of continuous usage.
Look and feel:
Its appealing aluminium design with a touch of purple gives it a look of an expensive product. The touchscreen display can be folded to 360 degrees to work as a tablet.
The laptop is extraordinarily slim with 1.37 cm of width. But has ample of ports. The power button is situated at the left side with the SD card slot, volume rocker and a single USB 3.0 port. And at the right side there is a USB type C port, 3.5 mm combo jack, DC power input and Micro HDMI.
There’s one glitch I’d like to mention. The volume rocker is a bit uneasy to use as I found that I kept on touching the power button by mistake.
Weighing just 1.27 kg, it is extremely light and compact being a laptop. Although, it’s not as light as the Asus ZenBook UX305 but yes, close to that. Overall, extremely convenient to use.
Talking about keyboard, it’s completely fine to use and well placed. Function keys are easy to use, just the arrow keys are a bit small and I didn’t see any use of having both the dedicated function keys and volume rocker, while not making a space for media control buttons like Forward and Play.
The Trackpad being fairly broad and smooth, is also fine. Navigation through small menus is comfortable because of a good tracking accuracy. Window 10 has an ample of features for multi-touch gestures and ZenBook is embracing it perfectly. With combination of touch screen, the laptop becomes the perfect machine.
The laptop has a pair of underside small speakers. Whilst using in the laptop mode, these are fine and delivers a pretty loud sound for a comparatively slimmer device. That too with a clear audio and good amount of detail. But during the tablet mode, it’s a bit doubtful as the speakers are totally blocked. Hence the sound is something not pleasant.
Battery life is splendid compared to its high performance. It managed to work for 7 hours 37 minutes with normal laptop usage and average brightness.
For a price upwards of 1.5 lakh the Zenbook Flip doesn’t make much sense for normal people. It is not meant for users looking for gaming machines. It’s meant for the people for whom portability and convenience matters a lot. The people who are ready to pay this much for a device which can give them touch screen functionality and a great battery life!
