Reviews for the Asus NovaGo TP370QL

Asus NovaGo TP370QL (Snapdragon 835) Convertible Preview | Notebookcheck
PC with smartphone SoC. The Asus NovaGo is one of the first devices equipped with a Snapdragon 835 processor, which is usually used for smartphones and tablets. We got our hands on a pre-production sample and tested how the compact convertible handles Windows and daily tasks.
Asus NovaGo review pt 2: It’s more versatile with Windows 10 Pro (but not any faster)
Source: Liliputing English Archive.org version
Fortunately, Qualcomm is already working on next-gen processors designed specifically for notebooks, and ARM has revealed its own roadmap for laptop-class processors. It remains to be seen whether any of those developments will lead to ARM-based notebooks and tablets that offer the level of performance you’d expect from a PC with an Intel or AMD chip. There will always be some issues with app compatibility, but at this point I’m just hoping future Windows on ARM devices will offer better performance reliability for the apps that they can run.

Asus NovaGo review: The promise and the problems with the Always Connected PC
Source: Good Gear Guide English Archive.org version
If the Asus NovaGo intrigues you, despite all its caveats and inconveniences, then I can very hesitantly recommend it. Asus and Qualcomm certainly satisfy the basic premise of an all-day, always-connected PC, a necessary evolutionary step for the platform. But when one of the vendors involved with the product recommends that you join the Windows Insider beta program to apply bug fixes as they’re implemented, this is a problem.

Asus NovaGo review pt 1: Windows 10 S on ARM really isn’t ready for prime time (yet)
Source: Liliputing English Archive.org version
At least not the first generation. Hopefully lackluster reviews like this one don’t prevent Asus, Qualcomm, Microsoft, and other partners from making second-gen and third-gen Windows on ARM hardware, because I’m looking forward to seeing what’s possible in the future even if I’m not thrilled with what’s available today.

Source: Engadget English Archive.org version
For now, I struggle to see the appeal of the NovaGo as a primary workhorse, but it's more than capable as a secondary laptop specifically for productivity on the go. It's a valiant first effort from ASUS, Qualcomm and Microsoft that will hopefully get better the second go around.

The Asus NovaGo makes good use of its Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 brain for long battery life and always-on cellular, but the performance feels more like a phone than laptop.

On the surface, the Asus NovaGo is just another laptop with a 360 degree hinge. However, it's what's hidden that's important here. The Snapdragon 835 brings with it a data connection wherever you go and amazing battery life. At least, that's the theory until we test it fully.

Asus NovaGo initial review: Windows 10 but always connected
Source: Pocket Lint English Archive.org version
One of the things that might make you sit up and take notice is that the Asus NovaGo has already declared that it will cost $799 in the 8GB/256GB configuration, but there will be a 4GB/64GB version for $599, which is cheaper than most Snapdragon 835 smartphones.

The idea of these always-connected, Snapdragon 835 laptops is seriously interesting. Being connected to fast LTE everywhere, without the faff of tethering or hunting for Wi-Fi, surely must be the future. The idea of having a laptop that can comfortably last a day, or more, without a charge is fantastic too. So let’s hope it lives up to the billing.

What we can say right now is that ASUS and Qualcomm have a shot at creating something really special that significantly improves certain aspects of PC computing. Fro our discussions with employees of those companies, it is fair to say that the expectations are realistic: from a computing standpoint, these laptops are designed to provide extraordinary battery life to very common usage models.

Comment

Model: The Asus NovaGo TP370QL is one of the world’s first Windows on Snapdragon laptop und truly defines connected mobility. With its Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, this ultrathin and light convertible laptop takes users further. It gives user an always on, always connected computing experience. The ASUS NovaGo packs a great user experience in a sleek, lightweight package that doesn’t weigh user down. Asus engineers reaped the benefits of a fanless design and a small 10 nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor to create an astonishing device with an incredibly thin 1.52 cm (0.6 inch) profile, and overall weight of just 1.41 kg (3.1 lb). The Asus NovaGo has a plastic and metal construction with silver highlights that make it extremely elegant and durable. It features a Gigabit-Class Qualcomm Snapdragon X16 LTE modem for download speeds that exceed home Wi-Fi. It also boasts a battery life up to 22 hours, which is twice that of current laptops. On top of that, additional stylus support makes the Asus NovaGo perfect for entertainment and productivity on the go, while a Nano SIM or built-in eSIM ensures seamless connectivity across borders. The always-on ASUS NovaGo is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 Mobile PC Platform to keep the device up and running throughout the busiest of days. Built on Qualcomm’s most power-efficient architecture to date, a user gets up to a whopping 22 hours of video playback and over a month of connected standby on a single charge. Users can leave the cords at home and power through a day.

It also features 8 GB RAM, up to 256 GB of UFS 2.0 storage, a USB 3.1 Gen 1 port, and HDMI. The 13.3-inch NanoEdge display in the Asus NovaGo has an ultra-thin 8.9 mm bezel that enables it to fit into a much smaller frame. With its NanoEdge design, ASUS NovaGo features an incredible 78% screen-to-body ratio and a larger display area for more immersive viewing. Its Full HD display features 178° wide-view technology, 100 % sRGB color gamut, exclusive Asus Splendid with Asus Eye Care technology, and Asus Tru2Life Video technology. Normal laptops go into sleep mode when users close the lid or leave it untouched for a period of time, but not the Asus NovaGo. Capable of lasting weeks, not days, in connected standby mode, it keeps all data synced to the cloud. The Asus NovaGo wakes up frequently to check for new emails, receive notifications, and perform other tasks so it is always ready. The Asus NovaGo has a precision-engineered, durable 360° multi-gear hinge with a silky-smooth action to gives the freedom to use it anyway you like. It also offers a great touchscreen experience with its 10-point multitouch display with Asus Pen support. The Asus Pen has an amazing 1024-level pressure-sensitive tip, which detects every nuance of movement, enabling users to write and draw just like they would on paper, notebook, or canvas. The NovaGo is an experimental laptop. It is aimed to compete with the lower-end Intel and AMD processors such as the Intel Core-M and Atom processors.

Qualcomm Adreno 540: Integrated graphics card in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC. Slighly optimized architecture compared to the Adreno 530 but with higher clock speed due to the new 10 nm process. In the beginning of 2017 one of the fastest graphics cards for Android based smartphones.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.
