Is the Asus ZenBook good

Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra review

Slender and (staggeringly) light. 

We've been playing with Asus' new ZenBook 14 (UX425J) for as far back as a week and I should state we were intrigued regarding how they figured out how to fit highlights and execution in a journal that weighs only a kilogram. It's an accomplishment of the building that is without a doubt, and immediately makes the UX425J one of our most loved ultraportables. 

At simply 13.9 mm, the UX425J is extraordinarily flimsy and weighs simply 1.13 kilograms – a hardbound book I was perusing gauges more than that. The structure is normal of any Asus PC: an aluminum skeleton with brushed metal on the spread, featured by the Asus logo. The dainty profile makes this simple to convey with your hands even without a pack. 

The screen is the primary thing you'll see when you open the UX425J. It's a 14-inch screen with a 1920-by-1080 pixel goal. The equivalent Asus-made NanoEdge innovation is available here, which offers an insane 90 percent screen-to-body proportion. 

The screen is splendid and with 100% sRGB shading extent uphold, you're getting splendid hues and astonishing picture quality on a screen that is totally visible even outside under daylight. Like different Asus journals, the ErgoLift pivot raises the console a happy with composing edge when the screen is opened. 

The head of the screen houses the 3D IR camera, which offers an additional layer of security since it tends to be utilized with Windows Hello when signing into the note pad. It's quick and immediately logs you in once it recognizes your face, however the webcam picture quality could be better. 

Directly down beneath is the place you'll discover the console. The scattered keys are agreeable to type and are illuminated so it's anything but difficult to type in any event when you are in dim environmental factors. There is no different numeric keypad, yet the Asus NumberPad 2.0 (the official name of the trackpad) can be changed into an enlightened keypad with only one bit of the sensor situated on the upper right corner. 

In spite of the flimsy profile of the UX425J, there's as yet plenty of I/O ports accessible. This incorporates USB. USB-C, HDMI, and microSD card peruser. I would have favored a standard-sized SD peruser on the note pad, however it isn't generally a major issue. There's likewise no 3.5 mm sound jack – except for stress not, the UX425J incorporates a USB-C to 3.5 mm dongle so you can even now associate your preferred earphones. There are likewise implicit speakers, yet we wished the sound yield could have been something more. 

Asus additionally stacked the UX425J with average equipment that permitted it to deal with an assortment of undertakings. It's fueled by an Intel Core i7-1065G7 CPU and cooperated with a super-quick 16GB of 3200MHz LPDDR4X RAM. There's likewise 1TB NVMe SSD for capacity, alongside Wi-Fi 6, and Bluetooth 5.0 help. 

The spec sheet is sufficient for the UX425J to deal with a run of the mill outstanding task at hand, it even was adequate enough to play a few games. I utilized this for two or three weeks as my essential work PC, and it didn't show a sign that it was battling considering the number of tabs I've opened on Chrome alongside the steady token of Outlook that I have another email. 

Something else I need to feature is the UX425J's unbelievable battery life. I wasn't actually ready for Asus saying that it can uphold as long as 23 hours of battery life, yet on certifiable use, I got around 7-8 hours before it began requesting that I plug it in. Utilizing the note pad essentially or watching content on Netflix or YouTube yielded more hours out of it, effectively permitting me to jettison the charger and simply the scratchpad when I head outside. Just on the off chance that you do need to charge it, the included USB-C quick charger can undoubtedly squeeze up the 67 Wh lithium-polymer battery from 1 to 40 percent in simply 30 minutes. 

Accessible for 3,699 AED, the Asus ZenBook 14 UX425J mixes the perfect measure of highlights, execution, and worth that makes it one of our most loved ultraportables.
