ASUS has just launched the stylish ASUS ZenBook Flip S in India…See price & specs
ASUS the well-known maker of smartphones and laptops has brought their new premium laptop- the Zenbook Flip S…Zenbook series has been well-known for its premium design and power. Zenbook Flip S is a premium looking design which is just 1.1kg and only 11.2mm thin…
Well, when you see the laptop you might get carried away with its looks…But, when performance, display and battery life comes to concern you might get disappointed in comparison to its price…
Haven’t seen the laptop? Have a look at the trailer:
The price of ASUS Zenbook Flip S in India is about 1.3 lakhs INR…
So, let’s start the detailed discussion regarding this laptop:
Well, ASUS has always been perfect in design point of view in any Zenbook series…The Zenbook Flip S will never fail you with its design…Well, to be honest one might honestly buy it just for its design and look. The three things which I liked the most are:
- Ultra-thin and light:
The Zenbook Flip S weighs only 1.1kg in spite of the fact it has a premium aluminum body. The chassis is forged from a single block of metal that’s carefully honed until it’s a mere 11.2mm thin.
- Diamond-cut highlights to the edges
The edges of this Zenbook has been crafted with diamond cut edges which gives the premium feel…
- Unique 360° ErgoLift hinge
The Flip is a 2-in-1, meaning it can be used as a laptop, a tablet, a tent (an upside down “V”) or a display. Thanks to the new 360° ErgoLift hinge which gives a silky-smooth, stepless action, and it holds the display securely at any angle.
The NanoEdge multitouch display on ZenBook Flip S offers all the quality you’d expect from such a beautiful laptop. The ultra-sharp screen offers an amazing up to FHD resolution of 1920 x 1080, and it features 178° wide-view technology — so imagery looks great from almost any angle. And with an incredible pixel density of 331ppi, images and text are always pin-sharp and ultra-detailed.
But well, the screen brightness might make you sad because the panel measures just 254 nits of brightness, which is not only below average (289 nits)…
Well, performance comes to concern ASUS will not disappoint you at all because it features the fastest 8th gen Intel Core Processor. Also, the 512GB SSD fires the laptop to the extreme…The main features are:
- 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor,
- 16GB of 2133MHz LPDDR3 RAM,
- An ultra-fast 512GB M.2 SSD, and
- A USB-C™ port for display output, data transmission, and fast charging.
To be very honest the ZenBook Flip S has enough power for tab hoarders and multitaskers to fiddle with it all day without even a lag at all…
Connectivity and Battery Life
The Zenbook Flip S features fast-charge technology that facilitates charges of up to 60% capacity in just 49 minutes. Also, it equips a 39Wh Li-polymer battery that the company assures you to give 11hrs of battery life. But in practice according to Laptop Mag Battery Test, it can endure only for 7hrs and 8 minutes over WIFI.
ASUS Golden Ear team and audiophile specialists at Harman Kardon has given this laptop an astonishing sound which you can experience in very few laptops.
ZenBook Flip S features two separate high-quality speakers powered by a smart two-channel amplifier, to bring you true surround-sound that envelops you with distortion-free, cinema-quality realism. ZenBook Flip S really does give you the most incredible sound you’ve ever heard on a laptop.
Keyboard, Touchpad, and Stylus
Flip’s keyboard at just 1 millimeter of travel, which is way too flat (preferred 1.5mm or more). The 63 grams of pressure required to actuate the keys made them feel mushy. The keyboard is full-size backlit as well…
The 4.4 x 2.7-inch touchpad is spacious, accurate and smooth. It is great at picking up gestures like pinching to zoom, swiping to show all of my open apps and tapping to open the action center.
ASUS Pen is an active stylus with a slim and elegant aluminum design and a premium feel. It’s the perfect accessory that allows you to accurately draw, write or annotate in any supported app. Windows Ink allows you to create sticky notes, capture ideas and details — as they happen. You can even take a screenshot and share it in one click.
What actually might definitely disappoint you in this laptop is the webcam. Well, there’s not much given about the webcam on the official site but it has only 640 x 480 shooter…
This is quite unexpected, especially you spent thousands of dollars on buying the laptop…Even much cheaper laptops provide at least HD resolution…
To Sum Up all we Have:
|13-inch 1,920 x 1,080 touch display
|1.8GHz Quad-Core Intel® Core™ i7-8550U processor
|16GB DDR3 SDRAM 2,133MHz
|128MB Intel HD Graphics 620
|802.11ac Wi-Fi; Bluetooth 4.1
|Microsoft Windows 10 Home (64-bit)
It is available in two colors: Royal Blue & Smoky Grey
The ASUS ZenBook Flip S is a stone-cold stunner of a laptop that will turn heads wherever you go. Though it may have some cons of webcam, brightness and a flat keyboard…
Still, the speakers are loud and clear, and the display, while on the dim side, offers up a ton of colors. Featuring the latest 8th gen Intel processor it is very powerful as well…
But honestly its a decent effort to make this laptop the best looking and the best performer…Well, if the webcam is not an issue for you then you can definitely buy the ASUS Zenbook Flip S…
