Reviews for the Asus VivoBook Flip 14 TM420UA-EC004T

70% ASUS VivoBook Flip 14 review: a portable 2-in-1 for budget users
Source: 91mobiles English
I feel that the VivoBook Flip 14 is a well-made product with its thin and light design. The touch functionality is very much a rarity in this price range and gives the laptop a distinctive edge. AMD’s Ryzen chip powering the laptop is also quite efficient at performing moderate to easy tasks. However, the not-so-impressive display and battery life can play spoilsport. Buy the VivoBook Flip 14 for its great form factor, touchscreen capabilities and overall decent performance.

70% Asus Vivobook Flip 14 review: Can be your daily work companion
Source: India Today English
At around Rs 60,000, the Asus Vivobook Flip 14 is a solid option for those looking for a work companion. It packs decent features but doesn't come without flaws. While the design feels solid and the keyboard feels right for most tasks. The display is the biggest letdown of the laptop and makes the Vivobook Flip 14 feel like an overpriced device. Because of the sub-par display on the Vivobook Flip 14, you will never actually enjoy the 2-in-1 form factor of the laptop. The battery life is another weak point of the package. If you want a laptop strictly for work that involves working on presentations, research, writing work, and browsing the internet, then the Asus Vivobook Flip 14 should meet that requirement. However, if watching videos, movies, or hard-core gaming is to be considered, then you should look elsewhere.

Asus Vivobook Flip 14 TM420 Review: The Ideal Flip-Screen Notebook For Those Looking To Doodle
Source: Tech2 English
The Vivobook Flip 14 is a smart, modern device with a great build, an average display and great battery life. If you’re looking for a flip-screen notebook, go for the Flip 14. If you just need a workhorse, however, I’d hold off till the Mi Notebook and Realme Book reviews are in. While they offer similar specs, both brands are promising laptops with larger and superior displays at a lower price.

60% Asus VivoBook Flip 14 (2021) review: Ambitious ultraportable with some flaws
Source: Android Authority English
The Asus VivoBook Flip 14 is a premium-looking offering from Asus. As we have come to expect from Asus laptops, it performs quite well and looks the part. However, it has a few glaring issues that become harder to ignore the more you use it. The chassis doesn’t feel cheap at first, but there are hints that it won’t hold up very well over time. The form factor promises great media consumption functionality, but the display fails to deliver. It’s barely usable outdoors — despite the fact that a laptop like this attracts folks that need a powerful laptop that can be used on the go. The battery life is impressive, and this laptop can comfortably handle home and office workloads. At the end of the day, this form factor really deserves a better screen and to have fewer issues with the build. The Asus VivoBook Flip 14 is bound to get your work done, but its rougher edges make it tough to recommend over the competition.

ASUS VivoBook Flip 14 TM420UA Review – Best everyday 2-in-1 on a budget?
Source: Techraman English
The Asus VivoBook 14 is a good everyday machine. Barring heavy gaming, it is quiet good on performance level for your CPU intensive tasks. Being a 2-in-1 convertible with touch screen, it is also a decent package for content consumption on the go.

ASUS VivoBook Flip 14 TM420 Review Philippines: Ryzen Tall
Source: Unbox English
The ASUS VivoBook Flip 14 TM420 is a great laptop for anyone looking for a fairly powerful device for general work in the Philippines. It’s fairly flexible owing to its design, has a powerful processor, and doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. It should be on top of your list if you’re looking for a new, decently-priced laptop. Our ASUS VivoBook Flip 14 TM420 review makes a clear case for this particular laptop for anyone looking for something that won’t break the bank in the Philippines. It has a good mix of performance, battery life, and design, and while the screen isn’t the best in the world, its sub Php 50K price tag makes it an attractive choice for a mid-range laptop.

AMD Vega 7: Integrated graphics adapter of the Ryzen APUs based on the Vega architecture with 7 CUs (= 448 shaders) and a clock speed of up to 1,600 MHz.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


R5 5500U: A hexa-core APU designed for use in ultra-thin, upper mid-range laptops. The Ryzen features six Zen 2 CPU cores running at 2.1 GHz to 4.0 GHz alongside the Vega 7 graphics adapter (448 unified shaders running at up to 1,800 MHz). One could be forgiven for thinking Ryzen 5 5500U is a renamed Ryzen 5 4500U - which is not the case. Ryzen 5 5500U is most similar to Ryzen 5 4600U, the most noteworthy difference between the two being the faster iGPU model of the former.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


14.00":

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.

Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. is a major Taiwanese computer hardware manufacturer based in Taipei, founded in 1989. Under the Asus brand name, the company manufactures a wide range of products, including laptops, desktops, motherboards, graphics cards, monitors, smartphones and networking equipment, complete systems and PC components for end users.

Under the ROG (Republic of Gamers) brand name, ASUS manufactures gaming laptops known by gamers for their powerful specifications, dedicated graphics cards, high refresh rate displays and advanced cooling systems.

Beyond gaming, a wide range of notebooks are offered for different needs and budgets, from ultra-slim and lightweight ultrabooks to versatile 2-in-1 convertibles and budget-friendly options. In 2023, Asus had a 7% global market share of the PC market.

Customer satisfaction with ASUS notebooks concerns performance, the features, and the good price-performance ratio of ASUS notebooks. However, as with any brand, there are occasional reports of problems such as overheating, driver compatibility, or build quality issues.


66.67%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
