Talking about the overall performance of the ASUS Zenbook 14 Flip OLED, we have used the laptop for 2 weeks. Its performance is good. However, while using Google Chrome, we have seen the problem of hanging 2 times out of 10. The laptop can be used like a tablet, but it gets a little hot from the side, so you may face difficulty in using it while keeping it on your lap. Apart from this, you will have a lot of fun while scrolling social media, watching videos, and listening to music.
The Asus ZenBook 14 Flip OLED packs a 75Whr battery, along with support for 65W fast Type-C port charging. The laptop’s battery is good in terms of backup. However, its battery backup suggestion is not accurate. Sometimes it says 2 hours of backup even in full charging and sometimes it says 9 hours.
Once you fully charge the laptop, you will easily get 5-6 hours of backup for office work. When used without the internet and watching movies or videos, the laptop can be used comfortably for 9-10 hours. It takes about 2 hours for the laptop to be fully charged.
Overall, the performance, build, display and battery life of the Asus ZenBook 14 Flip OLED are good. However, we did not like its webcam that much. If you want to buy a normal use laptop with a touch screen, then this can be a good option for you.
