The ASUS ZenBook Flip S, a 2-in-1 notebook with a 4K OLED screen that he claims is the best price on the market.
Let’s take a look at the exterior. ASUS ZenBook Flip S has to say that it has a premium luxury from the back cover, a metal spun-metal pattern rotates towards the ASUS logo according to the concept of the Zen way, plus a diamond cut. Cut, highlighted with red-copper (Red Copper), contrasting with the black Laptop, Jade Black makes it stand out. But this model is only available in this color, one color But even so, there is a spot on the back cover, which is more likely to collect fingerprints, who has oily hands may need to wipe a little more often!
The body material is made of Aluminum Alloy, which is strong but light. I’ll take it up and measure it to see how much weight it is. Weighed at 1.2 kg and the thickness of the device was measured at 1.39 cm. It is considered to be in the thin and light notebook group.
Starting with the highlight screen of the ASUS ZenBook Flip S, this model uses a 13-inch 4K HDR OLED glass screen. Mid fifty thousand Anyone who wants to take advantage of the beauty of the OLED screen is considered quite interested.
We usually hear the OLED layer on the TV rather than on the laptop. That is because of the high-performance technology. And the price is quite expensive If compared in the mobile industry, it is the flagship level.
I have to admit that the beauty of color and clarity is superior to conventional notebooks using IPS screens and 1080p resolution, this OLED screen is guaranteed by Pantone Validated to have the color gamut used in the movie industry. For example, DCI-P3 is up to 100%, if hitting the sRGB value is 133%, it is considered quite high. Regarding the color gamut If it is a normal screen, it will decrease with brightness, but the OLED screen is not like that. The color display remains 100% of the brightness range. (Increase – reduce the brightness to see) there is no distortion, regardless of the brightness level.
In addition, the screen has a maximum brightness of 500 nits and has a VESA DisplayHDR 500 level, that is, it can clearly show dark-in-the-dark details, like the Netflix trailer I am currently showing.
For those who suspect that this divine screen can be used for applications that require precision in color such as Will I have a graphic design? The answer is to unpack and use. The screen does not need a new color carbide. Because he has made it since the factory It is also certified by TÜV Rheinland that it can reduce the blue light that is harmful to the optic nerve by 70%.
Come to look at the title, it is said that it is the ZenBook Flip S, the screen itself has the ability to fold 360 degrees.
- Ordinary notebook model (This one still has an ErgoLift that raises the Laptop 3 degrees to help with typing. Cooling and sound.
- Set for writing, taking notes or drawing.
- A tent for watching movies or setting up a presentation
- And a tablet that folds the screen 360 degrees, here I find a few points where the hinge is not close, can still be a little bit open, but it does not affect the use.
Regarding the strength and durability of the hinge, ASUS has already tested that it can be folded more than 20,000 times. If we fold an average of 10 times a day, it will take more than 5 years.
3D IR Camera
Another highlight of this model is the front camera is a 3D IR Camera that supports unlocking the device. With a face scan via Windows Hello, unlocking is quick like this (scan the face to see), the resolution of the front camera is still HD or 720p.
Usually laptops with a folding screen like this, plus a ASUS ZenBook Flip pen, this model also comes with a new ASUS Pen in the box. This pen is considered to use a new design with built-in magnet. Can be attached to the device The points that can be attached are at the edge of the back cover, the edge of the screen, the side and the bottom of the keyboard. Another special thing is Supports heavy-light pressing up to 4096 levels from trying to use with the White Board program that comes in the device, it is considered usable. Drawing or taking notes is smooth. Can help reduce the use of paper. Save the world again
On the keyboard side, this is an Edge-to-Edge keyboard design, giving the keyboard a suitable size for each key. Use the full size of the laptop, from the left edge of the device to the right edge, there is a light under the 3-level adjustable button, the typing experience is comfortable. But the buttons may be a little short, if anyone has ever used a large button to use this model may have to adjust a bit.
Next down to the touch pad, this one is very wide. It can be comfortably pressed with two thumbs and the touch is good. If you notice in the upper right corner, see anything. NumberPad 2.0. Press and hold for 1 second, you will see the number pad.
Usually, the sides usually have a gray Intel sticker attached to it, but this ASUS ZenBook Flip S has the latest Intel Evo stickers. Specified criteria Performance, endurance, battery, charging, built-in AI and much more Conclude if this sticker is guaranteed to be good in every way!
The rest of the stickers are Perfect Warranty, accident insurance that covers 80% of the spare parts for the first year, the general warranty is 3 years and Microsoft Office Home and Student 2019 is installed that includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote. To have Windows 10 Home provided since the factory Turn on the device immediately. Do not waste time loading. And no additional costs for a single red laundry.
As for the ports, it is interesting because there are two Thunderbolt 4 ports in the USB-C format, the highlight is the data transfer speed of 40GB / s and can be connected to two separate 4K displays or if it is 8K, can be one. This is also a Power Delivery that supports 65W charging via a USB-C adapter, as well as sharing the battery to charge other devices like PowerBank. Another advantage that I like is the adapter to charge the mobile phone. Ok One adapter to charge all USB-C devices.
Talking about charging The Showdown Editor has tested the battery charge 0-60%, it took about 49 minutes with the battery capacity at 67Whs or about 4200 mAh. From the trial for about 1 week, it was found that if general use, such as printing a meeting Long distance, the battery will last for about 5-8 hours, but if used heavily, the battery will stay for 2-4 hours only, it is considered less but understandable because the 4K screen consumes a lot of power, plus it supports the touch screen.

The other ports have one HDMI and USB-A version 3.2 Gen 1, while the 3.5mm headphone port and the Lan port are not available. But it also comes with an adapter in the box. As for the power button that is on the side close to each other, the on / off button is located here, it allows convenient use when folding.
