Reviews for the Asus ROG Flow X16 GV601RM-M5038W

81% Asus ROG Flow X16 Review: Flexible Big-Screen Gaming
Source: CNet English
This is a non-standard take on a gaming laptop, so the usual calculations about price, performance and features may not fully apply. If you're looking for a basic mainstream gaming laptop with an Nvidia 3060 card, this ain't it. If you like the idea of a gaming hybrid that can fold into a kiosk mode and work with a gamepad, that's something almost no other gaming laptop can do. If you're especially interested in the XG Mobile as an add-on device that can work across different types of Asus computers, the X16 is a key part of that ecosystem and one of only a handful of ways to get that kind of modular performance.

ASUS ROG Flow X16 Review
Source: Yugatech English
The ASUS ROG Flow X16 is a near perfect laptop as I said earlier, the only cons I found were very nitpick-y quirks such as the device getting hot at certain spots when under load or the fan noise getting pretty loud (which do note is only noticeable in a quiet environment). Aside from that, the ROG Flow X16 just impresses. The laptop has a beautiful display, a great combination of power and portability, and a design that other laptops would drool for. Again, currently, I’d nominate the ASUS ROG Flow X16 as my laptop of the year so far. At its price point of PHP 164,995, I’d say it eakes out every single peso you’d spend on this laptop, it’s that good. So if you’re looking for a no compromise, media, creation, gaming, and portable laptop, the ASUS ROG Flow X16 should be at the top of your list.

90% Asus ROG Flow X16 review: A pricey game changer
Source: Laptop Mag English
The Asus ROG Flow X16 is a spectacular big screen ultraportable — a convertible, adorned with a subtle aesthetic, paired with uncompromising power that refines how you play games on-the-go.. A mesmerizing screen, strong battery life and decent port selection complete the package, resulting in a system that is fantastic for both work and play. But things do heat up fast under strenuous conditions, and all of this potential comes at a steep price when compared to other similarly specced laptops. Trust me. If you can afford the luxury, you will not be disappointed.

90% Asus ROG Flow X16 review (2022 GV601RM model- AMD Ryzen 9, RTX 3060)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
The convertible form factor is a major selling point of the ROG Flow X16, but to me, a 16-inch tablet isn't necessarily that useful. Instead, what makes this series my favorite all-purpose ultraportable of this generation is the balance of uncompromised features, excellent performance, fair temperatures for this class, and quiet fan noise levels that are offered here on the Balanced mode, which no other ultraportable that I've tested can match. These don't come cheap, though, so expect to pay a premium for the X16s over the regular clamshell Zephyrus ultraportables.

16.00":

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.
