88.2% Asus ROG Zephyrus Duo 16 review: An unusual gaming laptop with a good battery life | Notebookcheck

80% Asus ROG Zephyrus Duo 16 review: Double display dreamboat
Source: Expert Reviews English
Is the Asus ROG Zephyrus Duo 16’s dual-screen setup a gimmick? Absolutely not. Maximising its useability does take a little while but, even after a few days with it, I could clearly see the benefits, especially as the design hasn’t resulted in too many compromises. The lack of any hand rest space below the keyboard is a bind if you regularly use your laptop away from a desk but, used on a desk, the layout is really little different from using a regular desktop keyboard. Moreover, the quality of those two displays, especially the trick 2K 240Hz, 4K 120Hz hybrid main screen, makes this machine an easy recommendation. The big issue is that very high price.

80% ASUS ROG Zephyrus Duo 16 review: twice the fun
Source: 91mobiles English
The Zephyrus Duo 16 is ASUS’ most prolific gaming laptop setup to date but carries a hefty price tag. My unit which has the mini LED display, top-of-the-line AMD silicone and NVIDIA’s best mobile GPU, will set you back a staggering Rs 3,61,990. Now you should definitely ask yourself if the ScreenPad Plus has some utility for your work. There is an undeniable air of superiority around the Zephyrus Duo 16 whether it is the sound system or crispness of the display or just the overall build of the laptop. If these aspects, along with the laptop’s breakthrough performance appeal to you and you can stomach the price, the Zephyrus Duo 16 could well be for you.

I had the pleasure of checking out the original Asus ROG Zephyrus Duo back when it originally launched (in a smaller 15-inch configuration) in 2020. At the time, Asus proudly declared it the world’s first dual-screen gaming laptop - a slightly loaded statement, since the manufacturer’s own Zenbook Pro Duo was already offering solid gaming performance in a twin-screen laptop. Still, for all the novelty the original Zephyrus Duo offered, it didn’t really impress me. The keyboard and trackpad were cramped together beneath the secondary screen, which felt poorly implemented at best. Gaming performance was great, sure, but poor speakers, an underdeveloped design, and noisy-ass fans all contributed to a less-than-stellar overall experience - a far cry from the best laptops. Fast-forward two years, though, and the Zephyrus Duo is back with a vengeance. Well, perhaps not vengeance exactly, but a bigger screen, better audio, and new internal components all mean that the Asus ROG Zephyrus Duo 16 is a big brother to the original laptop that means business.

86% ASUS ROG Zephyrus Duo 16 review: When two screens are better than one
Source: Engadget English
Look, with a base price of $2,500 that quickly climbs above $3K when well equipped, it's going to be tough to fit the ROG Duo 16 in most people's budget. On top of that, it's big, heavy and short on battery life. But for the kind of people who constantly find themselves seeking more screen space — especially when out and about — ASUS' innovative setup gives you more usable display area in less space than practically any other laptop maker. And while its keyboard and touchpad are cramped, combining big performance with a truly unique design feels like we're seeing an evolution of the desktop replacement notebook happen in front of our eyes. That means this thing will be a rather niche device, but if you're looking for something to cure your dual-screen FOMO, ASUS's ROG Duo 16 does it better than anything else on the market.

ASUS’ ROG Zephyrus Duo 16 is an innovative option for anyone looking for maximum screen space in a laptop. It has a 16-inch main panel and a 14-inch secondary display. And thanks to top-notch components, the Duo 16 offers excellent performance and gaming capabilities. You also get powerful audio thanks to a six-speaker setup and tons of connectivity, with the main downsides being weak battery life, a somewhat bulky chassis and a high price.

The Asus ROG Zephyrus Duo 16 is a best-of-breed gaming laptop with not one, but two fantastic screens, but you have to really want that second screen to make the expense worthwhile. What’s more, it actively makes the laptop less comfortable to use in a range of everyday tasks. If you’re not going to make the most of this laptop’s key feature, you’re arguably better served by a more conventional design.

The Zephyrus Duo 16 is a very capable multi-purpose laptop and a computer more powerful and able to run cooler than the standard ROG models of this generation. However, the two displays are its most important selling point, and the main reason you're going to pay a hefty premium for this Duo 16 over standard designs with similar specs and capabilities. So make sure you want and need those two screens on your laptop.

The Zephryus Duo 16, like its smaller predecessors, is an impressive machine for a rare few shoppers. Even setting aside price, the dual-screen design is useful and interesting, but not essential. Add in the enormous price tag, and it’s a machine only for early adopters and enthusiasts who want to have the latest, most powerful gadget. But no denying it: It is very, very cool. From the elegant design to the sharp twin displays to the leading-edge-powerful components, this is a classy laptop that will play your games at the highest settings while also turning every head in its viewing radius. It’s the same idea as the Duo 15, just better executed and more powerful. You can find better raw-speed values for high-end gaming laptops, of course. But if you have an unlimited budget and this seems like a system you must have, it delivers.

90% Asus ROG Zephyrus Duo 16 (2022) review: Double the screens, double the fun?
Source: Laptop Mag English
The Asus ROG Zephyrus Duo 16 (2022) is a remarkable gaming laptop that may be held back by its more striking feature, the secondary display. It seems to offer head-turning appeal and “why on earth would I want that?” in almost equal measure. After a couple of weeks, it has won me over, but the price point makes it tough to convince people to take the plunge on a new form factor. The good news is that with or without that secondary display, the Duo 16 is an outstanding gaming laptop with performance and graphics that match almost any other laptop on the market. And the mini LED display makes gaming, content creation and watching videos a pleasure. Come for the amazing gaming laptop and stay for its unique second screen that ultimately won me over.
