Asus ZenBook 14 Flip OLED (UN5401) Review

Reviewing convertibles is hard. There’s this temptation to compare a 2-in-1 with a conventional laptop, that you need to always keep in check.

The ZenBook 14 Flip combines the form and convenience of the Vivobook 13 Slate with the utility of the VivoBook Pro 16X and puts it into a single device.

The 14 Flip, being a ZenBook, is Asus’s premium offering be it in the choice of build materials, styling, or ergonomics.

It is instantly recognisable, too, with its hallmark concentric-circle finish on the lid.

The whole chassis is made of diamond-cut aluminium alloy. The laptop is MIL-STD 810H military-grade certified for durability.

It measures just 15.9mm and weighs 1.4kg, acceptable proportions for a 14-inch laptop.

Naturally, the main appeal of this 2-in-1 lies in the hinge. It can “flip” 360-degrees on its axis.

The laptop is MIL-STD 810H military-grade certified for durability.

It measures just 15.9mm and weighs 1.4kg, acceptable proportions for a 14-inch laptop.

The 14 Flip, also, comes with a high-quality OLED display with a 2.8K or 2880 x 1800p resolution, tall 16:10 aspect ratio, and HDR support baked-in.

The ZenBook 14 Flip has 2x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C, 1x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A, HDMI 2.0, a microSD card reader, and a 3.5mm combo audio jack in addition to Wi-Fi 6 and Bluetooth 5.0.
