83.3% Asus ROG Zephyrus G GA502DU (Ryzen 7 3750H, GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q) Laptop Review | Notebookcheck
The Zephyrus G GA502DU wants to redefine what a budget gaming laptop should be. Its rare pairing of an AMD H-series CPU with an Nvidia GeForce Max-Q GPU is something we wish could have happened years ago. It offers a superbly balanced gaming experience at 1080p30 or 1080p60 in a chassis the size of a flashy flagship all at an affordable price.

82% Asus ROG Zephyrus G GA502 Review
Source: Think Digit English
As of writing this review, the Core i7-powered Zephyrus M GU502 costs Rs 1,42,990. This Ryzen 7-powered Zephyrus G GA502, on the other hand, costs Rs 99,990. If you’re planning to get the cheaper alternative so you can save Rs 43,000, you’ll be happy to note that you won’t be losing out on too much kit. You’ll end up with a (slightly) less powerful CPU and GPU but it won’t make a vast difference to your gaming experience, especially if you’re a casual gamer. The same goes for the display quality.

Asus ROG Zephyrus G Review
Source: Hardwareheaven English
The Asus ROG Zephyrus G is another gaming machine that has been impacted by compromised design in some areas. The screen, for instance, has poor colours, and the keyboard is light and breezy. It’s fine for casual gaming and for esports, but not for serious players.

ASUS ROG Zephyrus G GA502 Review: Thin And Light Gaming Powerhouse
Source: Unbox English
ASUS rarely makes missteps when they produce gaming notebooks, and their Zephyrus G GA502 thankfully isn’t one of them. Its stylish chassis blends well in most corporate settings (that giant ROG logo notwithstanding), and its thin and light chassis is great for people looking for a gaming notebook that literally won’t break their back.

86% Asus ROG Zephyrus GA502D Review: If You'Re A Gamer With A Budget Of Rs 1,00,000, Buy It
Source: Tech2.in.com English
Finding a gaming laptop in any budget isn't that hard. Picking the right one is. Between the plethora of features and a fair amount of marketing mumbo-jumbo, not to mention the multitude of CPU-GPU choices, it's nearly impossible for a layman to pick the right combo.

Asus has given us two choices at very different price points, but there's a lot that the ROG Zephyrus G GA502DU has in common with the Zephyrus M GU502GU. Of course the lower priced laptop lacks a few bells and whistles such as the RGB backlit keyboard and USB Type-C charging, but these are not things we would miss a lot. Even the 120Hz screen is not a huge step down from 144Hz.

The Zephyrus G GA502 is a competent multi-purpose laptop. It's compact and light and fast enough for daily chores and some gaming, lasts longer than the competition on a charge and is arguably the nicer looking and the nicer made option in its price-segment. However, you're going to sacrifice on the screen quality and performance compared to other laptops in its class, and you'd be lacking certain features that you might want, as you'll find out from our detailed review down-below.

ASUS ROG Zephyrus G GA502DU Review
Source: Yugatech English
Overall, the Zephyrus G is, by far, my favorite Zephyrus to date. Aside from its lightweight and slim form factor, it also delivers above-average gaming performance with a 120Hz refresh rate, which is suitable for First-Person Shooter games. Not only that, it has an impressive battery life for a gaming laptop. My only beef here is that there are times that it glitches out like when the screen completely turns all black for a moment then goes back to normal. I also would’ve preferred an SD card slot and RGB backlit-keyboard which should complete my whole gaming experience.

The Asus ROG Zephyrus G GA502 has strong VR-ready graphics packed into a super-light design, but its CPU and display are lackluster.

Source: Kitguru English
Overall, the ASUS ROG Zephyrus G GA502 has both exceeded and fallen short of my expectations. The main area of contention for me is that dull-looking display, and it may be hard to look past that if you are used to a vibrant monitor. Its other issues are more minor, however, and there is no denying the laptop offers a good level of 1080p gaming performance in a sleek and portable chassis. The excellent battery life also makes this a very realistic option if you want something to use at work or university.
