Let’s just go more in-depth by discussing why should you go for this laptop
This Lenovo Flex 14 is perfect in terms of aesthetics. The most noticeable thing is this laptop is super light as it is just 3.5lbs. You might be surprised, aren’t you?
This 2 in 1 laptop with 14 inches of FHD screen laptop is enjoying a competitive advantage. If you want to upgrade your laptop then body aesthetics might not matter for you but if it’s not like that then you will probably prefer aesthetics as well as power performance so in such a case this laptops’ aesthetic may not satisfy you.
Unlike some other expensive products of Lenovo which are available in silver-gray and clementine orange, its notebook has just black color and also has simple gray plastic that you may find a little odd but that doesn’t mean it is unattractive. What matters most is the performance and it is spectacular in performance.
Moreover, this notebook boasts a pair of 3oo-degree hinges as it is 2 in 1 laptop. It also allows you to use a laptop in clamshell mode, tablet mode, tent mode. All in all, it is one of the sturdiest laptops Lenovo has ever produced.
14 inches Full HD Wide Display
No doubt this is the most exciting release from Lenovo in a while but you probably won’t get us until you get it out of the box. This laptop comes with a touch screen option which is decent with 250 nits.
Most of you guys will say that 250 nits are not enough and the screen is a little dim so we respect your opinion but now due to the covid 19 pandemic most of you are doing work from home better say you do work indoors so a screen with 250 nits is adequate for you. Let’s just ignore such minor drawbacks.
Furthermore, if we talk about screen indoor quality then the screen is bright and crystal clear and it looks very attractive for a lower-tier laptop. The angle views are great as it is IPS and the color scheme is also very fine and decent. Compared to the previous model it is way better and looks very charming.
If you are fond of digital drawing then You can also use it for drawing and stuff as they are also providing another handy tool i.e. a digital pen with this 2 in 1 laptop. It would be better to clear that this is not specially made for drawing purposes or it is a professional laptop but you can use it for spending a good time. Ultimately, the touch screen works like it is supposed to.
Powerful CPU and GPU | Performance
In our time with Lenovo flex 14, we were quite surprised by its outstanding performance. We see Lenovo always claims that its processor is spectacular in performance so we again test its performance and we came to know its AMD’s Ryzen R5 processor is really good in performance with an amazing balance between speed and efficiency.
This processor is AMD’s latest release for such a budget 2 in 1 laptop. It can work effectively for short daily routine tasks and also deals with demanding stuff on adobe or photoshop like video editing.
Moreover, this Lenovo notebook also tackles taking notes on the go and editing spreadsheets, and so on. The fact that this laptop is what you always wanted because you can also use a Radeon Vega 8 graphics card keeping it within budget.
Furthermore, you don’t have to worry about power consumption because the 12nm process mainly focuses on a higher clock rate while consuming minimal power.
Keyboard and Touchpad
Another good aspect of this laptop is that it has a handy keyboard and touchpad. The touchpad is very soft and beneath the keyboard bottom right corner, there is a fingerprint reader, which you can use to unlock your Windows profile, and also you can open windows hello supported apps with a single touch.
You see a little trackpad there that allows you to interact with the flex, giving a responsive experience but requires a fair amount of pressure before it can click.
Speakers and Ports
This Lenovo Flex 14 has ideal speakers for desktop users who don’t want something luxurious and prefer simplicity, no-fuss audio, and stuff. On the bright side, it is also ideal for tablet users who prefer the loud audio sound.
The laptop is featured by the easy access volume control. This is best for home and office. These speakers perfectly support video calling and spoken audio messages as well as skype tests.
You will be impressed by the overall clarity and volume and the way speakers hold during skype calls. In addition to the laptop’s port, Lenovo’s convertibles are better than others in the same price range.
On the left side, you see a USB-C port, power adapter input, audio jack, and an HDMI port. On the right side, you see there is a NOVO Button, power button, card reader, and a pair of USB ports. Sadly, there is no external GPU enclosure but in such a price range it is not a big deal.
Lenovo claims that Lenovo Flex 14 has a long-lasting battery up to 10 hours of constant usage. The battery life is so impressive and Lenovo even proved it by testing battery life. They tested by putting full brightness and continuous web browsing as well as they even tried video calling.
The results were amazing and the battery lasted for 13 hours which is beyond expectations. Many users always complain about the device battery that it doesn’t last long and they have to carry a charger and plug with them to avoid any kind of inconvenience.
Ultimately, this laptop will never disappoint you in terms of battery. Nowadays due to pandemics, we are doing our jobs on a laptop by staying at home, teachers are giving online lectures and students are taking virtual classes. All tasks are being done with laptops.
So, we need something that will last longer and we don’t have to rush for charging. Lenovo Flex 14 fits perfectly with the current situation.
