ASUS ZenBook Flip 14 UM462 review (Ryzen 7-3700U, RX Vega 10 graphics, 512GB SSD)

The Indian laptop market has a wide range of models and with OEMs rapidly expanding their product lineups, users have a lot of options to choose from. Likewise, Asus has been expanding its laptop lineup-up in India with newer ZenBook, VivoBook models, and recently we reviewed the premium ZenBook Pro Duo with the dual-screen, gaming-centric ROG Zephyrus G, as well as the latest 10th-gen Intel Core-based VivoBook S532 processor. While these are 15.6-inch laptops, there are some users who prefer a smaller form factor, and the company’s ZenBook Flip 14 is aimed at those users. We’ve been using the 14-inch ZenBook Flip 2-in-1 for a while now, and in this review, let’s see if the 14-inch convertible is worth the money. The Asus ZenBook Flip 14 has a stylish design with enough physical ports. The left side of the laptop has a USB 3.1 Type-A Gen 1 port, USB 3.1 Type-C port, HDMI port, and DC jack. The right side houses the USB 2.0 Type-A port, audio jack, and card reader. Since it’s a convertible laptop, the power button is on the right side rather than next to the keyboard.In terms of construction, it has a metal chassis and as usual, it also comes with ErgoLift hinges. But this time around, I don’t like the ErgoLift hinge because it’s a bit stiff and the transition between laptop and tablet mode isn’t smooth. Unlike other VivoBook models in this price range, ASUS has great display on this monitor. That being said, there’s no ScreenPad 2.0 in this model, which we’d like to see as it’s a great addition and also makes multitasking easier. Additionally, this is a touchscreen laptop, and the touchscreen is responsive and works as expected. The stylus also works well and responds well. However, it’s worth noting that palm rejection isn’t all that great.ZenBook Flip 14 is powered by an AMD Ryzen R7-3700U processor paired with 8GB DDR4 RAM and a 512GB PCIe x2 SSD. Graphics duties are handled by the integrated AMD Radeon RX Vega 10 GPU, a third-generation Ryzen processor that can be overclocked up to 4 GHz.ZenBook Flip 14 batterylifeThe Flip 14 is powered by a 42Wh 3-cell lithium-ion battery, and Asus promises up to 9 hours of battery life on a single charge. But the convertible lasted just over 4 hours in our testing, and we noticed the battery draining quickly during video playback, which was odd. Additionally, it takes 2 hours and 45 minutes to fully charge the ZenBook Flip 14 using the included 65W power adapter. Overall, since it is a convertible,ZenBook Flip 14 battery life could have been better.Here’s a breakdown of charging times measured at different intervals:So, should you buy the ZenBook Flip 14? The performance of the Ryzen 7-3500U is very good and consistent, and Asus has done a great job with the display this time around. In my opinion, the ZenBook Flip 14 is great as a standalone laptop, but not so great as a convertible. There’s room for improvement in the convertible department, and if you can get past the shortcomings mentioned below, the ZenBook Flip 14 is an affordable compact laptop.
