It Has Been Just Slightly Over Half a Year Sincy Intel Announced Its 11th-Gen Processors.Immediatly After that, we Saw ASUS Announcing A Refresh of Its Line of Laptops and Convertibles, Including the Zenbook Flip S and Its 4K OLED DISPLAY.FAST Forward to 2021, and We have Another ITRENITION OF THE CONVERTIBLE LAPTOP.

Of Course, a New Processor and a look, does not constitite a whole laptop make.That Said, What Exactly Are We Getting with this Particular Zenbook Flip S OLED?Let’s Find Out.

Specifications

In Essence, The Asus Zenbook Flip S OLED ACTUALLY HAS A LOT in Common with The Base Flip 13, The only Notable Exception is the Display.The Flip S Oled Comes with A 4K Display, While the Base Model Comes with A Full HD Panel Inst,.

Design

IF You’re Familiar with The Company’s Products, You’ll Notice that asus Zenbook Flip SLOKS VERY SIMILAR to the ONes that Came Before.At Least, The Top Lid sodes.Not Exactly Surprising, SincE it is the Company’s Signature look.

Speaking of Signature Looks, The Fact that Zenbook Flip S OLED IS A Convertible Means that Key Feature is a Little Less PonouNced, and That Is the Ergolft Hinage Hinage.It’s Still There, No Doubt, But You May Feel The Slicht Height Difference While Typing.

As for keyboards, the one with the zenbook Flip S OLED IS Pretty Comfortable to Type on.Well, as Comfortable as it can find on a laptop Anyway.It has, in fact, a Familiar Typing Experience as the Regular Zenbook Models, and Especially that of the Zenbook 13.IT ALSO HAS Three Levels of Backlighting, Which in My Opinion Is Plenty.

Moving on, The TrackPad Retains a Unique Signature Feature that Has Become Someting of A Necessity: The Ability to Double As the Numpad.Depending on the Frequency You Actually Use it, it may may not be someting you app..But, as frank kafka Wrote: Better to have it and not need it, Rather than NEED IT and Not HAVING IT.ALSO, IF Do Use It Offten, The You’ll Likely Encounter Issues Similar to the OND PRENDING ZENBOOKS, and that is Exerting Gorilla-Like Strengith Inter to Turengith Inter To Turna.

Retains almost all ASUS’ signature design elements.

There Are the Lips, of the Laptop.The Bottom Lip Just Out Ever So Slightly, with the Middle Section Sinking in.This Makes It Easier to Flip The Lid Up.IT ALSO HELPS that Most of the Laptop’s Weight is Distributed Throughhut The Lower Half, Throwh that’s to Be Experateded.

At the Bottom of the Base, You have Elongated Rubber Feet Distributed to the Four Corners.Thus Pretty Thin, Seemingly Just Enough to Prevent.

ASUS ZenBook Flip S OLED Review: Flexing Those 11th Gen Intel Core Muscles

The Ports that The Laptop Has is a bit interaild.On the One Hand, It Has a Full Hdmi Port on the Left, with Two Usb-C Ports.And on the Right, You Only One Usb-a Port Accompanied by the Power Button.There’s Plenty of Space, At Least on the Outside, for a 3.5mm Audio Jack, But You Won’s Find One Geere.Which is a Little UNFORTUNATE, BUT AT LEAST An Adapter Comes Packed in the Box.

Flipping it over into Its Tablet Form Takes Little Effort, While the Hins Strike a Very Goodween Smoothness and Stiffness.This allows the zenbook Flip S13 to hold its shape Very well!.Throw Tablet Mode Still Retains that Weird Sensation that Comes from Holding the Keyboard Folded Around the Back.

User Experience

The Zenbook Flip S Oledles Pretty Much As You’d Expect from A Modern-Day Laptop.The fact that it’s a concavertible means that it is with a tuchscreen, Which is a lot Moreful That Sounds While in Laptop Mode.Thanks to its precision, and the fact that pointing and touching is More Precise than Swiping on the Mousepad, I Use Mode a Lot More of the I Did the Latter.

That’s not to say That the TrackPad is an appalling Performer.On its OWN, It Gets the Job Done Just as Well as the Best Out there.It’s Responsive and Fairly Accurate, But It’s Just No Replacing to Simply Tapping On the Screen If You’re Going for Precision Precision.

While the Asus Zenbook Flip S Oled Caned as a Tablet, It’s Probably Best to Keep the Use of That Mode to a Minimum.Simply BecAuse While it’s Light Enure that Don’t Feel Its Weight While it’s in your bag, you’ll definitly feel It’s in your hand Hands.

Still feels quite hefty as a tablet.

Under Normal Circumstances, IT WOLD Be Quite Difficult to Navigate a 13.3-Inch Display with A 4K Resolution.Fortunatly, The Laptop Comes Pre-Magnified, So The Experience is More Akin to that of a Full HD Display.Thour on a Personal LEVEL, 13.3 Inches Is Still a Tad Too Small, and I Personally Prefer it to be an inch bigger.The Display Itself Is Great, With Beautiful, Accurate Colours.

One Other Issue Throw with the Zenbook Flip S OLED IT IT GETS VERY HOT.This Happens in Two Scenarios, One of Which IS I’m Giving it Beans.Imagine a Phone That’s Spend The Last Half An Hour Playing Games, And That’s ABOUT THE TEMPERATURATURA WHEN I am MAKING THIS LAPTOP Earn Its Keep.The Second Scenario When Its Being Charged.You’ll Ideally Not Want to Use It’s It’s Charging, Even More SO in Tablet Mode.

On the Numbers-Crunching Side of Things, The Zenbook Flip s Oled Comes with the New 11th Gen Intel Core Processor.SPECIFILLY FOR REVIEW MODEL, IT Comes with the Intel Core i7-1165G7.It’s an Intel Evo Model Too, Which Also Means Iris Xe Graphics, Which Intel Has Made Interesting Comparisons to Other Integrated Gpus.

That Being Said, The Synthetic Benchmark Scores ABOUT EXACTLY WHERE YOU Expect them to be.Sure, You Can Game with Itsewhat, But You’ll Definiteli To Tone Down Your Settings.

Battle Life

The Synthetic Benchmark Score for Battle Life, Oddly En feing, Paints a Very Different Picture Compared to Actual Real -world Usage.This is BecAuse The Benchmark Scores Don’t look Very Flattering.

In REAL-WORLD USE, It Gives Me An Average of Nine Hours of Use Which Involves Mostly Typing, Web Surfing, and the Ocsional Video Watching.And this is on its Default Power Settings.It is Mildly Impressive, But This Figure Only Goes Up by An Hour When I Bring the Brightness Down To Its Minimum and Power Settings All up Down To Maximise Efficide Efficide Efficide Efficide Efficide Efficise Efficide Efficide Efficime Efficide Efficime Efficide Efficime Efficime Efficime Efficime Efficime Efficime Efficime Efficime Efficime Efficime Efficime Efficime Efficime Efficime Efficime.

Competition

The Highlight of the Asus Zenbook Flip S OLED is the fact that it’s a convertible that rouses the 11th Generation Intel Core Processors.SO, there AREPLEA of SUCH MODELS BY OTERALAUFACTURERS THAT IT IT CAN BE Compared to.

Samsung Galaxy Flex 2

One of the Samsung Galaxy Flex 2.It comes with the same 13.3-Inch Display Size, But it Also Has a 15.6-Inch Option.Throw The Latter Will Make Use of an Nvidia MX450 GPU.

That Being Said, It’s Pretty Unlikely that Samsung Will Be Bring this to Malaysia.After ALL, The Company Left the Local Laptop Market Years Ago.

Lenovo Yoga 9i

Another Option and One Know for Sure Is Available Here, Is the Lenovo Yoga 9i.IT Comes with A 14-Inch Display, Which Woold Behold If You’re Like Me and Find That Size to Be Perfect.Other items in the Spechet Include Up To 16GB of LPDDR4X RAM and 1TB PCIE SSD Storage.

Pricing Starts from RM6499.Throw If You Want an Extra Touch of Luxury, You Can Get One with A Leather Cover for An Rm410 Premium.

Asus Zenbook Flip 13 Oled

Of Course, Another Competition to the Asus Zenbook Flip S OLED is the Company ’Own Zenbook Flip 13 Oled.It is essentially the same laptop, with the only notable difference Being the Display Which, on This Model, is a Full HD OLED SCRENTEAN.

And for that Reduction In Resolution, You Also Bump The Price Down by A Fair bit.Down to RM5199, to be Exact.YOU CAN ALSO GET THE VERSION with the Intel Core i5-1135g7 Inst, to Push It Down Further to RM4699.

Conclusion

The Asus ZenBook Flip S Oled Is Certainly The Laptop for Those Whant a Convertible and Want to Keep Things on the Smaller Side of the Scale.Size is Still Up To Personal Preference, Especially Where The Display Is Conceerended.

The fact that it is a concavertible also gives it a Few Extra Plus and Minus Points.On the Former, There’s The Touch Screen.It’s an undoubted Benefit that Will Remove a Lot of the Frustration of Using A Laptop Mousepad.But on the Flip Side, At Least in this ITRENITION, The Trade-Off Is the Ergolift Hinge Being A Little Less Pronouments.

So with all that in Mind, Shoup You Get the Zenbook Flip S OLED?Sure, If Convertibles Are Your Thing.Throwh One Thing to Keep In Mind Before You Make Your Purchacing Deposion Is the Heat that it Generates.IF You’re Fine with Managing that, The Its Price of RM6799 IS ALSO Just Around the Ballpark of What You’d Expect from A Convertible.
