Asus Zenbook 13 UX333 || Review 2020 



ASUS ZenBook 13 UX333FA-A4118T 13.3-inch FHD Thin and Light Laptop (8th Gen Intel Core i5-8265U/8GB RAM/512GB PCIe SSD/Windows 10/Integrated Graphics/1.19 Kg), Royal Blue Metal

Price: Rs.72,990/-



I have the 2017 ZenBook. And the reason I have it is to show you the difference to the 2018 ZenBook. 
Now these are both 13" laptops but as you can tell there is a massive difference in size. And that's because ASUS has shrunk down the bezels all around display. 
It's taken it down to much less than a centimeter on all four sides. Like, I don't need a backpack for this thing. I can just carry it around with me and be stylish and stuff. It's like a book size. It's impressive is what I'm saying. It's good. Technology moving forward. (slow electronic keyboard music) - The new ASUS ZenBookalso keeps the web cam at the top of the display where it belongs and it also has IR cameras so you can do Windows Hello authentication. The display is nicer, they're brighter than the old generation. And the laptops are just so much smaller. 
You basically lose nothing and gain a ton of goodness. Okay, I lied. You do lose something. You do lose a USB-A port. You still get USB-A and USB-C and you can charge with USB-C. And you no longer have an SD card reader. It can only read Micro SD. Aside from the super obvious upgrade and display, the keyboard is also new and improved. It now has a back light and it's not the old classic type.

So that's a significant upgrade. And ASUS is also adding it's Ergo Lift hinge design which basically tilts the bottom part of the laptop just a little bit up so it makes it easier to type on. And sinks the display down a little bit. This really contributes to the whole sense of this being a bezel-less display.
 Again, it has a few milometers of bezels but you really don't notice them when you're actually using the thing. And it's really advanced look and feel. It feels like it's super high end and premium whereas the ZenBook line,the non-pro version, isn't really ASUS' top of the line stuff which is pretty cool. You know it's a high end feel in a device that is cheaper. 
So ASUS is launching the new ZenBook 13, 14, and 15. And 14" is actually smallerthan its previous 13". So that's how big of a leap it has been between 2017 and 2018. All of them have Intel 8th gen core processors inside of them. And you can get them started at Rs.72,000/- up to Rs.89,000/-

That's with a 16x9 10HZ display again across the line. You can get a touch screen option and if anything I would really want to upgrade or anything else it's the RAM which still has the four gigabytes. Really not sufficient for most people. Otherwise the standard spec is pretty nice. You get a much better display, a better keyboard, a back lit keyboard. And of course just a much smaller, more convenient form factor. Unlike making the laptops any thinner, which left it small of any benefits, reducing the bezels reduces the footprint of the entire machine, makes it that more convenient, portable, and easy to move around without needing to carry a big old technical backpack. And I'm really liking this trend which mirrors the one weal ready have with smart phones. So these are ASUS' new laptop upgrades series for 2018. For more from the show and for other beautiful, lovely, amazing advanced technology keep it up to the Verge.

What I would consider to be one of the most comfortable keyboards I've used in a laptop recently. So this device is standard Zenbook quality. It's aluminum all around with this chamfered edge that's bronze or copper depending on how you look at it. I'd say it's more of a copper but that's just me and it's very well-built, it is a Zenbook flagship, these are always well-made. Now this hinge is what makes this laptop special. They're calling "ErgoLift" and it's not the first time we've ever seen a device do this, like the whole idea of when you open the device it lifts up, like we've seen other devices do it. We've seen other Asus devices do it. We've seen (Dell) XPS devices do it It's certainly not new, but these guys do it better than anyone else that I've seen. The idea is to lift up the keyboard So there's a bit of a tilt, so it's a more comfortable typing position as well as opening up the bottom so it's not touching the surface of whatever you're typing on, and the tilt is just right. It's an awesome keyboard experience; it's a great layout, clean, white backlighting. The arrow keys are in the proper spot and each keystroke has this nice feel to it on these chiclet (island-style) keys My only knock on it, is that the Page Up and Page Down stuff? There's no dedicated buttons for them, and if you want to use the hotkeys for them up top, they're in a weird spot, you have to take your fingers off the cursor and push them in the function keys But still despite that odd Page Up Page Down positioning It's an awesome keyboard and it's seriously one of the best keyboards I've used. If I had to type for a long period of time for like an essay or development or any kind of like extensive keyboard use, this would probably be my top pick.

The trackpad is also quite good, it's Windows Precision, good tracking and button mechanics. The fingerprint sensor's in the top right corner. It's not my favorite spot, but overall good trackpad. The port selection is somewhat limited. There's one USB-C on one side and then the other side has two Thunderbolt 3's and one audio jack that's built into the screen component and that's basically it for ports. The speakers are, well, they actually sound really good, just the speakers themselves, but they're positioned in... not a great position. So when you have it just kind of like in a regular laptop position that ErgoLift makes this almost like an echo chamber underneath the laptop and you can hear the sound just bouncing around and distorting a little bit. If you just have the speaker's pointing straight up top, they sound really clean but you're never going to use them like this. And in the regular laptop position, they don't sound as good. The screen that I have in this model is a 4K panel It looks really sharp, almost to the point of being too sharp like I've never really needed a 4K panel on a 13-inch device, but that's what this one has. It's bright, it's color accurate, it looks good. There is a 1080p option available which I think is a better choice for most people, but if you're a photo editor or something,  they do have the 4k screen and the webcam's up top in a normal position

Okay, let's talk about performance. This device can be equipped with some very powerful hardware. We can get the (Intel) 8th gen 4 core CPU and 16 gigs of RAM, you can deck it out pretty heavily and for short bursts, that 8th gen CPU is really good. But thermally it's not a strong performer and it casts a bit of shade on this whole device for me. Now depending on what you're using this for, this may or may not affect you but for me, someone that looked at this as a potential video editing machine, it needs better thermals. At stock settings, it will power and thermal throttle pretty quickly, the fans are really quiet, which is easy on the ears, but it just limits what this product can do. So on XTU (Intel Extreme Tuning Utility), I played around a little bit, cranked up some stuff and it can run boost for longer but it can't maintain it. I really wish they'd just gone with a more aggressive thermal solution. I feel like the fans could have been louder, I feel like the fans could've been bigger or maybe throw in two fans, The thing is, this thing is so quiet that like, it just- I get what they're going for, right? 

It's a business laptop and you, like those people want really quiet devices and they even have like this Quiet Mode which makes it run essentially silent but throttles even harder I just wish there was a way to crank up the fans and avoid any kind of thermal limitations but there isn't and it also says something about the ErgoLift, so The idea of this ErgoLift was obviously primarily for a more comfortable keyboard experience but it would have been nice if there was some kind of airflow through that gap but there isn't, it does raise that hot surface away from your lap so if you're typing on the keyboard on your lap, it's a little bit more comfortable, but there is no airflow. Okay inside, we're looking at a battery. that's 50 watt hours. Not a huge battery, but we're getting around six and a half, seven hours of battery life, which is pretty respectable. The Wi-Fi card is built on board (You) can't remove it, same with the RAM, can't remove that, you got to configure it at purchase The NVMe (SSD) is removable, and the one they're using is fast. They're the PM961 drives from Samsung. So the Zenbook S is a device, in that premium, Ultrabook market. Obviously, it's not going to be a cheap device; It starts at eleven hundred dollars ($1100), goes up to like fourteen, fifteen hundred dollars ($1400-$1500) It's competing with stuff like the (Dell) XPS 13 the Razer Blade Stealth, the LG Gram. They're all expensive devices and I would consider this one, kind of reasonably priced, considering the hardware that you're getting. If you're looking for something that's like, productivity based. If you want a good keyboard and you're using it for school or work or photo editing, this is a good pickup, this makes sense. But if you want something that's a little heavier, like video editing or if you want to play games with an external GPU I would look at something else.
