Design and Build for Asus ZenBook UX370
Coming to the design and built part of the Zenbook it is impressively thin, light and beautiful. The laptop is incredibly slim and light and measured measuring 12.32 x 8.58 x 0.43 inches. The laptop only weighs 1.1kg which is amazingly light. The laptop is a convertible laptop which means who you flip the display to use it as a laptop if you want.
The body part of the UX370 is made up of glass and aluminum with proper golden edges all over. The top side of the lid has a textured concentric signature finish from Asus which is kind of attractive and adds up luxury feel.
Coming to the other area of a laptop like a palm rest area, it has proper space which is needed by a person which working on it. We also get a full-sized keyboard which works well. The keys also make a sound while we use them. They are made up of solid plastic and not rubber which makes it way better while typing. The spacing between the keys are proper and are well comfortable while typing. Take my words while using the keyboard of UX370 you are going to love the typing experience.
It has a decent VGA camera for a web face to face chatting with your friends. I really don’t know why brands add VGA camera in these high-end models. In low light, it will struggle a bit, due to which I will suggest you use additional LED light in front of your face.
The trackpad which we get in on UX370 works great. It is as smooth as we get in any Macbook. We also get a fingerprint sensor inbuilt on the right side of the laptop. The fingerprint sensor works well and is accurate.
Ports on Asus Zenbook Flip S UX370
Ports are the thing which you are going to miss on this laptop. On the left side, we get USB Type C 3.1 port and besides it a 3.5 mm audio jack. We also get an air went on the left side.
Coming to the right side we get another USB Type C 3.1 port. Beside it, we get a Fingerprint sensor, power button and volume rockers which works quite well. Rest there is nothing much which we need to explain over here. Rest, when we get such compact, small and lightweight beast we can adjust out with these minimum ports.
Display and Speaker on Asus Zenbook Flip S UX370
The ZenBook UX370 gets a 13.3-inch IPS Full HD (1,920x1080p) multitouch display. You can also use the stylus to control and operate the OS. To make it better Asus can also add up an anti-glare coating on the display still, Watching content like movies will just going to give you an amazing experience. The display is reproducing vivid colors which offer sharp, bright, and great picture quality. Overall this IPS panel works well on this laptop.
The Asus ZenBook UX370 comes with stereo speakers. We are getting four stereo speakers placed on the deck of the laptop. The speakers which we get are from Harman Kardon and are above average in performance rather I loved the sound output. The sound from these speakers gives you above average bass as well as quite a loud sound which we get also tweak using the AudioWizard app.
Performance on Asus Zenbook Flip S UX370
Coming to the main part which is performance, here Asus ZenBook UX370 comes with Core i7-8550U CPU which is supported with 16GB of DDR3 memory, and a 512GB SSD. This all is supported with integrated Intel HD 620 graphics card. With this integrated graphics, we get easily do 720p gaming, Photo, and video editing. We can also watch 4k movies and Web Browsing.
The only issue I find in the laptop is that due to too much slimness and high-end specification it heats up to 42 degree Celsius while watching HD movies and editing videos on premier pro. You can also do normal gaming on the laptop. With this lightweight, it is still enough for office usage.
Battery Life on Asus Zenbook Flip S UX370
According to my usage, while working on a word or using a web browser for typing articles and surfing it was leading me about 7 to 8 hours and rest depends on work to work. If you are doing Photoshop, Premier pro and other high-intensity work it will hardly lead you to about 2 to 3 hours battery backup. At this price, it seems to be ok to me because you can always upgrade the battery from external market according to your usage and work.
Verdict on Asus Zenbook Flip S UX370
If you want a high-end slim and light laptop which is also a 2-in-1 laptop then Zenbook Flip S is well worth a look for you. It is perfectly fine for daily office use. The best thing is you will love the typing experience on this laptop.
