A very interesting trend is emerging. Some manufacturers revert back to slightly heavier laptops, in order to make them more competitive, while others – like ASUS, concentrate on making laptops as thin and light as possible. And it is quite successful in our opinion. Well, we said the same about Acer, who changes its Swift 5 to a fattier diet, making it gain 200 grams year on year. But sometimes, you need to go your own way, which may be completely different from the one of your competitors. Anyways, sitting at 1 kilo and 14.9mm, the Zenbook S 13 OLED (UM5302) establishes itself as one of the most portable laptops in its class. It has a surprisingly good performance and humongous rigidity, thanks to the magnesium-aluminum unibody. The battery life is also on point, with nearly 12 hours of Web browsing, or about 16 hours of video playback on a single charge. This can be contributed both to the large 67Wh battery and to the fantastic efficiency of the system. ASUS Zenbook S 13 OLED (UM5302)’s OLED touchscreen panel has a high resolution, comfortable viewing angles, and fantastic pixel response times (despite the 60Hz refresh rate). It fully covers both the sRGB and the DCI-P3 color gamuts, while the software it comes with, features emulation for either of these color spaces. We are happy to see that the color accuracy, in this case, is great, and you can comfortably use your device for professional work. And if you are worried about the OLED technology’s affinity towards PWM usage in low brightness scenarios, you should remain calm. ASUS has a great technology, called “Flicker-Free Dimming”, which eliminates the issue with very little impact on color accuracy. Some miscellaneous features include the fingerprint reader, AI noise cancellation, MIL-STD-810H compliance, and Wi-Fi 6E support. The NumberPad never disappoints, and the touchscreen works great. And you can lay the display down flat to present your content to more people around you. Now, there are some things that we’d like to address. Unfortunately, the memory of this device is soldered to its motherboard. With a maximum of 16GB outside the box, you can’t really expect to be on the sharp edge of technology in the future. Also, you have no SD card reader, nor a regular-size USB port. Quite frankly, ASUS supplies a USB Type-C to Type-A dongle inside the box. If these disadvantages are not too big for you, go on, and get yourself a Zenbook S 13 OLED (UM5302). The feeling you get when using the laptop is amazing, while its more traditional design makes it a more comfortable for use machine than the Dell XPS 13 Plus 9320.

Aside from a full makeover, the use of Ryzen 6000 series processors makes the ZenBook S 13 OLED (UM5302) a really good premium ultrabook in the Philippines. It’s more affordable than the previous generation, yet you are getting much more value for money with the ZenBook S 13 OLED (UM5302). The performance of the Ryzen 6800U and Radeon 680M integrated GPU make the ZenBook S 13 OLED (UM5302) a true competitor against Apple’s MacBook Pro M2.

The Asus Zenbook S 13 OLED is just a superb little laptop. If you want something lighter than a MacBook Air with a wide color gamut display, good performance and battery life and a smattering of convenient features, it's an easy recommendation. Here's hoping Asus can get supply up so people can more easily find it.

The Zenbook S 13 OLED is a nicely configured premium 13-inch laptop for $1,300, making it a true value. It provides excellent performance for such a thin and light machine, it enjoys an excellent keyboard and touchpad, and its display is to die for. There’s little to complain about. Maybe the build could be just the tiniest bit stiffer, its battery life is average, and it’s missing Thunderbolt 4, but those are the laptop’s only weaknesses. If you’re in the market for a 13-inch machine, the Zenbook S 13 OLED should be on your shortlist.

The ASUS Zenbook S 13 OLED is a fantastic thin and light notebook. The system is understated and attractive, it offers high performance across a variety of workloads, thanks to its Zen 3+ processor cores, RDNA 2-based graphics engine, and fast RAM and storage, and its display and input devices are top-notch. On top of the strong performance and highly portable form factor, the ASUS Zenbook S 13 OLED also features an excellent, stand-out 2.8K OLED display (with touch), the latest complement of IO and connectivity, including Wi-Fi 6E and USB 4, and battery life is phenomenal. If you’re shopping for a highly-portable, thin and light notebook, in the 13” category, the Ryzen 6000U-powered ASUS Zenbook S 13 OLED has it all. The only quibble we have with the ASUS Zenbook S 13 OLED is the lack of any additional ports beyond its trio of USB-C ports. That year’s model had a similar form factor, but also packed in a microSD card reader, a USB-A port, and an HDMI port. In terms of the platform, getting an 8-core / 16-thread Ryzen 7 6800U CPU with fast integrated RDNA 2 graphics in this form factor is great

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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
