Reviews for the Acer Swift 3 SF313-53-78UG

Acer Swift 3 (SF313-53) review – more vertical space gets you through your workdays
Source: Laptop Media English
Acer Swift 3 (SF313-53)’s IPS panel (BOE NE135FBM-N41 (BOE08BC)) has a high resolution, comfortable viewing angles, high maximum brightness, great contrast ratio, and 99% of sRGB coverage. Additionally, its backlight doesn’t flicker at any brightness level. Another thing we were impressed by, was the color accuracy. Especially when our Gaming and Web design profile is present, we monitor an Average dE of 0.6, which is among the best we’ve ever tested. So, no matter your workflow – Web design, interior design, art, photography, engineering, or e-commerce, this laptop will provide everything you need, to get the most accurate color representation. By the way, thanks to the high maximum brightness, working outdoors should be no issue, even with the glossy display.

80% Acer Swift 3 SF313-53 review (2020 – Tiger Lake hardware and 3:2 display)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
This Swift 3 SF313-53 is an interesting mid-range ultraportable with a focus on daily-use productivity, thanks to its 3:2 display. This is what primarily puts it on the map, as one of the more affordable ultrabooks with Tiger Lake hardware, good IO, a big battery, and a solid-quality 3:2 display. On the other hand, buyers should be aware of the quirky inputs, poor audio, and potential panel flickering.
