Description

It’s the world’s largest PC seller and fourth-largest smartphone company, so they know a little something about creating devices that are both powerful and portable. According to our tests, the IdeaPad Flex 5’s display brightness reached only 200 nits which is dim compared to the mainstream laptop average of 290 nits and the Envy x360 13 (364 nits). The Yoga 7i is a more premium device with a sturdier aluminum chassis, and it provides a better user experience, like a more colorful display, better-sounding speakers, and a more responsive touchpad.

A graduate of Middlebury College, I also have a master's degree in journalism and French Studies from New York University. Regrettably, the trackpad is not quite as ample, especially when you consider the real estate available. All the Intel and AMD options with integrated graphics will perform similarly, but the i7-1065G7 variant with integrated Intel Iris Plus graphics will perform a bit better.

As for the security features, the laptop comes with a fingerprint scanner which is fast and reliable. Just to give you the reference, we also added scores of the Acer Swift 3 with 11th gen Intel processor and Dell XPS 13(10th gen Core i7) for the sake of comparison. But the hinge was also sturdy enough to prop the device up in tent mode and held firm as I jotted down a few notes. But if you're partial, say, to running loads of browser tabs while you edit images - or some other typical multitasking scenario - you’ll quickly run out of system memory with only 4GB at your disposal, especially as some of that is pinched by the integrated graphics.

Overall, we were pretty impressed with the battery life on the device and on top of that, the fast charging is also pretty nifty addition. That translates into nearly 12 hours of video playback and nearly 10 hours in the more demanding PCMark battery test.You get a lot of ports here for your money, so most people shouldn’t have to spend any more on dongles and adapters, which is always a plus. Pay in 3 is a form of credit, may not be suitable for everyone and use may affect your credit score. It also gives you the option to customize a radial menu if you choose to assign it as a shortcut on one of these two buttons. Other features worthy of mention are the 720p webcam located on the top bezel and complete with a physical shutter and support for an optional digital input pen. The NVIDIA GeForce MX330 will give you the best GPU compute performance, although if you perform such demanding tasks, you're probably better off getting a true mobile workstation with a more powerful discrete graphics processor, like the NVIDIA GeForce 30- or 40-series GPUs.

You can see our unit's specifications and the configuration options in the Differences Between Variants section.

Side-mounted power buttons are easier to use when the laptop is propped up like an easel, but be careful not to accidentally press the button when you grasp the Flex 5 on its sides. There’s nothing unique or flashy about the IdeaPad Flex 5's design, but it certainly doesn't look bad. The IdeaPad Flex's keyboard provides a better typing experience, its touchpad has better tracking, and its webcam captures more details due to its higher resolution. The highest-end IdeaPad Flex 5i model, with an i7 and dedicated NVIDIA MX330 graphics, won't stutter nearly as much. Lenovo quotes a not-brilliant maximum brightness level of 250 nits on IdeaPad Flex 5s with a Full HD display.

Despite the maximum brightness level being just 250 nits, we found this bright enough for most situations, and we didn’t experience much glare even when working on this machine outdoors. The hottest it got after playing a 15-minute 1080p video at fullscreen, was at 76 degrees Fahrenheit on the touchpad, and 87 degrees on the keyboard.However, your battery will run out much faster if you run CPU-intensive tasks like photo or video editing or 3D rendering. Although palm rejection is good overall, it occasionally registers unwanted touches if you're near the top corners. The sections on the graph with noticeably shorter frame times (higher FPS) correspond to intervals with mostly static scenery. Apart from this, you can also purchase the Flex 5 if you enjoy viewing content on a laptop, care about additional security(privacy shutter and fingerprint scanner), and for those who want a good 2-in-1 hybrid. I easily opened the laptop with one hand without much trouble, and converting it into tablet mode was always a smooth experience.
