Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 Review

ROG Zephyrus has been the best lineup for gaming activities and hence it has launched Zephyrus G14 newly in India. Great design, superfast performance, and obviously gaming anywhere are the primary features of the device. It has got good specifications and design. 

Design and build quality of Asus Zephyrus G14

Earlier, gaming laptops were about managing under limits but not having it anywhere. However, many gaming laptops including this are do-anywhere gaming laptops. The primary considerations about the laptop are AMD Ryzen 9 4900HS and an Nvidia RTX 2060 Max-Q. It has 14 inches of screen size and 1.7 kgs of weight. It has also got 16 GigaBytes 1Tera Byte of M.2 NVMe PCIe 3.0 Solid State Drive.

Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 Review

This is the smallest Zephyrus laptop with the 14-inch display and H-series processor. The hinge of the laptop is the reason for better typing but it blows hot air out of the vents to the screen. While extreme gaming, this issue could be faced.  

The laptop has an integrated fingerprint reader on the power button. The fingerprint reader works so quickly and accurately with the windows hello feature. 

Using the AniMe Matrix, I used to change back patterns, showing Mario like thing running to the battery percentage and other preferred personalizations. 

The laptop has two speakers at the top and two at the bottom in a magnesium alloy frame. To the right of the laptop, there is a USB Type-C port and two USB Type-A port, and a big vent. To the left, there is a power adaptor port, HDMI port, USB Type-C port, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. 

The laptop has a great build quality which gives a solid and premium feeling and yes it’s portable as it weighs less. On typing fast, the screen wobbles a bit. 

Display and Audio of Asus Zephyrus G14 

The product I reviewed had a 14-inch WQHD IPS panel having a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels with a basic refresh rate of 60Hz. The same model also comes without a WQHD display having a higher refresh rate. I would like to have an FHD screen with a 144Hz refresh rate. The display has 100% sRGB color gamut support, Pantone validation, and supports AMD FreeSync technology which makes it one of the best on a laptop for editing videos or photos.

Keyboard and trackpad of Asus Zephyrus G14

After the MacBook 2017, this laptop gave me the best keyword experience. The keycaps were rightly spaced and a good feeling of key travel. The keyboard is backlit. Asus has one of the best trackpads ever on the Windows PCs. The windows trackpad driver makes it precise and seamless to use. 

Performance on Asus Zephyrus G14

This laptop claims to be both for gamers and Creators as well. Unfortunately, it lacks in performance a little bit. After a game session of 15 minutes on Watch Dogs, the laptop got heated up. But the office work and regular low-end usage could give an appreciable performance. Though it has some heating issues on tough gaming. 

Battery of Asus Zephyrus G14

The laptop gave a good power backup on a battery of 6-7 hours on writing articles, streaming music, and browsing the internet. The best thing about the device is that it supports 65W charging. The charging time was one and a half hours with 180W charger on charging 0-100% whereas on 65W charger it took three complete hours. 

Opinions on the laptop

This laptop has a good performance, smooth touchpad, good keyboard, and better battery life which is fine on considering a gaming laptop. This can edit your videos too. Though it puts me in dilemma for suggesting this device to anyone as it has some heating issues.
