Asus VivoBook S13 S333JA Laptop Review: Great Display For Cheap

Solid option for students. Asus is positioning its latest VivoBook series as a solution for younger users on tighter budgets. Though it's nowhere near as fancy or appealing as the ZenBook, the VivoBook S333 is still a major improvement over the older VivoBook S330 series.

Asus unveiled the VivoBook S13 S333 series at CES 2020 alongside the larger VivoBook S15 S533 series. The newer models would ship with updated Intel processors and brand new chassis designs that emphasize "user personality" in an attempt to appeal to the younger generation. A quick look through Asus' official product page for the VivoBook S13 S333 shows exactly the kind of market and userbase the manufacturer wants to attract.

Our test unit here is the VivoBook S13 S333JA equipped with the 10th gen Ice Lake Core i5-1035G1 CPU, 8 GB of soldered RAM, 1080p IPS display, and 512 GB of storage for approximately $600 to $700 USD retail. Other SKUs of the S333 are available including the newer S333EA which comes with the latest 11th gen Intel CPUs. We'll be comparing the system to its predecessor the VivoBook S13 S330 as well as other budget 13.3-inch Ultrabooks like the Lenovo IdeaPad S540, 2020 HP Pavilion 13, or Huawei MateBook 13.

Case

Chassis rigidity is better than expected despite the low price. The base exhibits no creaking with minimal flexing and even the lid is quite stiff. Overall quality is in between that of the cheap Lenovo IdeaPad S540 and more expensive ZenBook S13.

An easy way to distinguish the S333 from other laptops or is its yellow-colored Enter key. Though purely aesthetic, it makes us wish that other color options were available aside from only yellow.

The system is 3 mm thinner than the last generation S330 while length, width, and weight are all nearly the same. Competing 13.3-inch laptops like the IdeaPad S540 or 2020 HP Pavilion 13 are thicker, heavier, and/or larger than our Asus.

Connectivity

Port options and even positioning are almost identical to the VivoBook S330. While we're relieved that nothing has been dropped, we're also bummed that nothing has been improved. The HDMI port, for example, continues to be 1.4 instead of 2.0 meaning 4K60 external monitors are not supported. Furthermore, the USB-C port here does not support DisplayPort or Power Delivery meaning users will have to upgrade to the pricier VivoBook S13 S333EA or ZenBook series instead for such features.

SD Card Reader

Transfer rates from the MicroSD reader are slow at just under 30 MB/s to be over two times slower than the card reader on the ZenBook 13. Plan to wait about 50 seconds per gigabyte if moving files between the laptop and MicroSD card.

Note that the MicroSD card can be difficult to remove since the reader is not spring loaded.

Maintenance

The bottom panel is difficult to remove because its edges and corners are both sharp and tightly latched to the metal base. We can at least appreciate that there are no hidden screws underneath any of the rubber feet.

Once inside, users can only upgrade the M.2 SSD as both the WLAN and RAM modules are soldered.

Accessories and Warranty

There are no extras in the box outside of the AC adapter and paperwork. The usual one-year limited manufacturer warranty applies.

Input Devices

Keyboard

The keys offer 1.4 mm of travel with crisp feedback when pressed. Clatter, however, is louder than average especially when pressing the Enter or Space keys.

All keys and symbols are lit when the white backlight is active. Keep in mind that the backlight should be disabled when working in well-lit environments because the white light contrasts poorly with the silver key caps.

Touchpad

The clickpad is smaller than the clickpad on the ZenBook S13 (10 x 6 cm vs. 10.5 x 6.2 cm) and the top right corner is not even usable because the space is reserved for the fingerprint reader. It can feel cramped as a result especially for vertical movements. Glide is otherwise smooth and textureless if moving quickly while slower movements have moderate sticking for more accurate clicking.

The integrated mouse clicks are loud when pressed with shallow travel and weak feedback. Clickpads with weak feedback are usually quiet when pressed, but this VivoBook seems to be an exception.

We would love to see the dedicated fingerprint reader on the clickpad be merged with the Power button in future models

Display

The VivoBook S13 S333 uses the same Chi Mei N133HCE-EN2 IPS panel as found on the Lenovo ThinkBook 13s and Fujitsu LifeBook U7310. Contrast is high at over 1000:1 while brightness is about 100 nits dimmer than on the higher-end ZenBook 13. Interestingly, both the VivoBook S330 and S333 exhibit the same 26040 Hz pulse-width modulation frequency at 29 percent brightness to suggest that Asus is using the same backlight on both models.

Color space covers almost all of sRGB to be wider than expected for such an inexpensive laptop. Image quality is significant improved over the older VivoBook S13 S330 which covers just 63 percent of sRGB. Colors are noticeably more vibrant and closer to what a pricier ZenBook can offer.

The display is poorly calibrated out of the box which is a shame because its colors and contrast are otherwise impressive as noted above. Color temperature in particular is too cool and RGB balance is off. After calibrating the panel ourselves, the average grayscale and color deltaE values would improve noticeably from 4.2 and 2.91 to 1.9 and 1.45, respectively. We recommend applying our ICC profile above to get the most out of the display if owners don't have access to a colorimeter.

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
25.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 16 ms rise
↘ 9.2 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 46 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (24.2 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
35.6 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 18 ms rise
↘ 17.6 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 32 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (38.4 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM detected 26040 Hz ≤ 29 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 26040 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 29 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 26040 Hz is quite high, so most users sensitive to PWM should not notice any flickering.

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9672 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 151500) Hz was measured.

Outdoor visibility is passable if under shade as any brighter will wash out the screen. Users may want to consider higher-end XPS, ZenBook, or Huawei MateBook X Pro models if outdoor visibility is a concern.

Performance

Only Intel 10th gen Ice Lake or Comet Lake and 11th gen Tiger Lake Core U-series CPUs are available. Discrete GeForce MX250, MX330, or MX350 graphics are also available if configured with a Comet Lake CPU. AMD Ryzen is not an option at least at the time of writing.

We recommend SKUs with 16 GB of RAM because RAM is not upgradeable.

Processor

CPU performance is good for a Core i5 CPU. Though Turbo Boost performance is limited, clock rates are at least relatively steady over time as demonstrated by our CineBench R15 xT loop scores below. Overall performance is most similar to the older Kaby Lake-R Core i7-8550U. It's too bad that there are no AMD Ryzen options at the moment as the similarly priced Ryzen 5 4500U would have been more powerful than our Core i5-1035G1 at the same TDP.

Upgrading to the more recent Core i5-1135G7 or i7-1165G7 SKU will see relatively minimal CPU performance benefits over the i5-1035G1. GPU gains, however, would be significant because of Iris Xe.

System Performance

PCMark 10 results are slightly better than what we recorded on the VivoBook S13 S330 save for the Productivity benchmark where our S333 underperforms. The latest 11th gen Core i7 and 3rd gen Ryzen 5 or 7 laptops handily outscore our budget Asus.

We experienced no software or hardware issues with our test unit. However, users should be aware of the pre-installed McAfee and MyAsus applications. MyAsus is especially important as key system settings are toggled here.

DPC Latency

LatencyMon reveals DPC latency issues when opening multiple browser tabs on our homepage. 4K UHD video playback at 60 FPS is otherwise smooth and with no dropped frames during our test. CPU and GPU utilization are relatively high at 21 percent and 48 percent, respectively, compared to half that on the latest Core i7 Tiger Lake-U systems.

Storage Devices

Our test unit comes with a 512 GB Intel 660p SSD which is a mid-range NVMe drive. Installing a higher-end SSD like the Samsung PM981 is possible, but the PCIe x2 interface of the budget VivoBook will bottleneck its performance. The cheaper Intel drive is therefore reasonable for keeping costs in check without significantly impacting the user experience.

See our table of SSDs and HDDs for more benchmark comparisons.

GPU Performance

The UHD Graphics G1 is roughly 40 percent faster than the aging UHD Graphics 620 but still well below the Ice Lake Iris Plus G7, Tiger Lake Iris Xe, or the dedicated GeForce MX150/250/350 series. Even amateur video editors or light gamers will want to consider something more powerful than what is available on our review configuration.
