Asus Zenbook 14 Flip OLED review

The Asus Zenbook 14 Flip OLED has a big ol' battery: a 75Wh capacity one that Asus advertises on the sticker right by the touchpad. This is a good 20% higher capacity than some key rivals, and almost double that of the HP Pavilion X360 14, which has a 43Wh battery.

You don't get anything like the real-world stamina of some of the AMD CPU laptops we've tested over the last couple of years from it though. Even if you use power-saver mode.

We find the Asus Zenbook 14 Flip OLED can last a respectable but not mind-blowing 9 hours 40 minutes when doing very light jobs like video streaming or basic productivity work - like writing documents. This dropped to nine hours when not using any special power-saving measures or modes, so all-day use is perfectly possible without much effort - as long as you aren’t doing anything remotely taxing.

You're not going to need a USB adapter as often as with a MacBook either. As well as two ultra-fast Thunderbolt 4 connectors, the Asus Zenbook 14 Flip OLED has an HDMI 2.1 port and a single USB-A. We're not talking desktop-grade connectivity here, but aside from a card reader it has what we need day-to-day.

The the Asus Zenbook 14 Flip OLED also has a 1080p camera with better image quality than the old 720p laptop standard, although its image becomes quite desaturated in weaker lighting.

This laptop's speakers are great, though, surprisingly so. Asus doesn't use the loudest software mode of this Harman Kardon array as standard either. Regardless of the sound mode used, the Asus Zenbook 14 Flip OLED sounds quite beefy, with a good amount of lower-frequency substance.

Switch on Dolby Access's Dynamic mode and perceived loudness almost doubles with some content. These speakers can more than do the job for the occasional movie stream, and perform well above the Windows slim and light norm.

ASUS ZENBOOK 14 FLIP OLED REVIEW: VERDICT

The Asus Zenbook 14 Flip OLED is a great all-rounder laptop, particularly if you think you might want to dabble in its more designer-style abilities.

It's a hybrid that dodges annoying screen wobble. It's an ultra-portable that has a keyboard with actual substance. It can last a full day of work and doesn't use a low-voltage processor some will find the limits of all too readily.

Issues include that it's a bit heavier than some competitors, and the technically advanced OLED screen has a slight visual pattern to its makeup that some may find distracting. We notice it less and less as each day passes, though, so if you're content with that for the sake of using touch-sensitivity then we can certainly recommend this Asus.

ALSO CONSIDER

Asus offers an even more powerful version of this laptop with a dedicated graphics card: the Zenbook 14 Pro OLED. It's only a touch heavier too, but you do lose the hybrid hinge - if not the stylus support. Pretty neat.

If you're here for the hybrid hinge, check out the HP Spectre X360. It's a much more striking laptop, and a significantly lighter one too. However, it uses Intel's low-voltage U-series chipsets so won't be able to hit the performance heights of this Zenbook.
