Asus ZenBook Flip 15 Series

Asus ZenBook Flip 15 UX562FD-EZ077T

The Asus ZenBook Flip 15 is a 2-in-1 laptop with a powerful 8th-gen Intel Core i5 processor paired with NVIDIA’s GTX 1050 GPU. It gives users all the convenience and versatility of a 360°-rotatable 15.6” display in a stunning new design. It is thin and light, featuring the 8th-gen Intel® Core i5 processor, discrete graphics, an HDD with up to 2TB + a 512GB SATA SSD, USB-C ports, and a powerful Harman/Kardon audio system. The ZenBook Flip 15 is a timelessly elegant masterpiece, exquisitely crafted from solid aluminum, giving it a tough, scratch-resistant finish that has been designed to stay beautiful. The ZenBook Flip 15 uses incredibly tough and durable alloy steel in its any-position 360° hinge mechanism. It is available in two exclusive and elegant new colors with two different textures: Pure Silver and Smoky Gray. The Flip 15 uses a standard layout chiclet keyboard with white-colored keys and white backlighting. One thing that we noticed is that it does not have the last column after the NumPad, where the “-“, “+”, and “enter” keys are usually located. The touchpad, which also serves as a click pad, is smooth on the hands and does not have much resistance when gliding on it, which is good. The ultra-sharp screen has an amazing Full-HD resolution of 1920 by 1080 with wide, 178° viewing angles, so it is always easy and comfortable to view. With an incredible pixel density and 100% sRGB coverage, images and text are always pin sharp and ultra-detailed.  Furthermore, the screen has an ultra-narrow bezel. The result is a laptop with a 79% screen-to-body ratio that maximizes the screen area while minimizing overall size. To maximize the viewing comfort, the NanoEdge display also has a matte anti-glare coating which reduces annoying reflections. Asus ZenBooks have a history of having good color reproduction displays, which is always a plus for any user.

The audio quality is loud, clear, and crisp thanks to the Harman/Kardon loudspeakers. The highs, mids, and lows are more than decent enough. The AudioWizard app lets users choose which sound type they would prefer by picking from the presets or by customizing their preferred quality. The Flip 15 is a powerful 2-in-1 ultrabook, since it features an Intel Core i5-8250U, an NVIDIA GTX 1050 (2GB), a 512GB SSD, and 8GB of RAM that is expandable up to 16GB. This kind of setup is suitable for gaming as well as photo and video editing. Whether a designer, a developer or a gamer, every user will get the best possible graphics performance with the ZenBook Flip 15. The notebook features the revolutionary USB-3.1 Type-C port for any-way-up connections and super-fast data transfers, twice faster than USB 3.0. The USB-C™ port on the ZenBook Flip 15 incorporates the latest technology for versatile, ultra-fast transmission. The Flip 15 also comes with the latest 802.11ac Wi-Fi, with speeds of up to 867 Mbps - it is three times faster than older Wi-Fi generations.

82.1% Asus ZenBook Flip 15 (i7-8550U, GTX 1050, 4K, SSD, HDD) Convertible Review | Notebookcheck
Well-conceived convertible! The ZenBook Flip combines a multitude of devices into one. The suitability for gaming is no more a problem for the slim convertible than CPU-heavy applications are. This detailed review will show whether there is a catch somewhere.
ASUS Zenbook Flip 15 UX561UD review
Source: Yugatech English
The ASUS Zenbook Flip 15 UX561UD has promising specs and features for a 2-in-1 ultrabook. It is solid and well-built, it has a responsive and snappy touchscreen, a vibrant and color accurate display, loud, and clear sound speakers. The performance is pretty good since the device uses an 8th-gen Intel Core i7 processor. One major issue though is heat management due to bad exhaust vent placement. Other than that, its advantages more than outweigh its disadvantages. The ASUS Zenbook Flip 15 is priced at Php79,990 (see listing here). Now, is this laptop worth it? The answer is a yes especially for people whose purpose is for professional use.

Asus ZenBook Flip 15 UX561UD-E2029T

It looks like somebody told manufacturers to produce as many convertibles as possible this year. I can not think of any other reasonable explanation for this flood of convertibles. 13.3, 14, 15.6 inchers everywhere. If someone manufactures a 17.3-inch convertible, I will call it done.

Okay, let’s get back to the topic. The ZenBook Flip series is actually an entry series in Asus’ world of convertibles. While there are more elegant Zenbook Pro models out there, if you are looking for some budget-friendly yet performance-strong models, Asus has you covered.

Even though I am always trying to figure out why someone would ever need a 2kg convertible laptop and trying to imagine how long they can hold it in one hand while using the touch screen, here I am, testing one.

A 4K touch screen in a 15.6-inch convertible. If that does not sound interesting to you, try adding a GTX 1050 with an Intel Core i7-8550U to it. Combined with a 512GB SSD and a 2TB HDD, it feels to me that this laptop was intended to be a multimedia device on which you can store all your data, do some gaming, etc. But since the competition is too strong in that segment, Asus might have wanted to try something new and thus introduced the Flip 15 with an interesting combination of hardware.

The i7-8550U is a good processor, do not get me wrong. But is it suitable for gaming? That is debatable. While the GTX 1050 is not a great choice for gaming either, it is sufficient for multimedia.

Now, is this device for creative minds or media consumers? It depends on how long your work sessions are. I am saying this because the 8550U is a low-voltage CPU and can easily become hot. Having long sessions with, for example, some Adobe software can bring it to high temperatures pretty quickly. Therefore, I am not sure if it is going to be reliable for such work. I even slightly doubt that everyone could benefit from the touch screen.

I think this laptop could be a good companion to some artists who sketch. Combined with a pen (sold separately), it could be a good tool. But I do not see it becoming a good fit for regular users. With the given size and weight, I would aim for at least a regular-voltage CPU for better utilization.

ASUS ZenBook Flip 15 UX563 review – don’t let the ULV processor fool you, this is a very powerful machine
Source: Laptop Media English
ASUS ZenBook Flip 15 UX563’s display is touch-sensitive, has a super dense UHD resolution, comfortable viewing angles and decent maximum brightness and contrast ratio. Additionally, its default settings are adequate, while the backlight lacks PWM, which makes it comfortable for long periods of use.

ASUS ZenBook Flip 15 UX562 review – a well-designed product for artists that has a great multitasking enhancement
Source: Laptop Media English
ASUS ZenBook Flip 15 UX562’s IPS panel is touch-sensitive, has a Full HD resolution and comfortable viewing angles. Its advantages include a wide color coverage of 91% of sRGB and a lack of PWM for brightness adjustment. On the downside, our unit had an unacceptably high unevenness in terms of Luminance across the screen’s surface. This is petty, given the fact that this device relies heavily on its display.

Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Incorporated, a Taiwanese multinational company, produces motherboards, graphics cards, optical drives, PDAs, computer monitors, notebook computers, servers, networking products, mobile phones, computer cases, computer components, and computer cooling systems. The company's 2007 revenues reached US$6.9 billion. ASUS also produces components for other manufacturers. The Eee PC initiated the netbook boom in 2008.

In the notebook sector, Asus had a global market share of about 11% from 2014-2016, making it the fourth largest laptop manufacturer. In the smartphone sector, Asus is not among the Top 5 and has only a small market share (as of 2016).


With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Mobile: Mainstream graphics card based on Nvidia's Pascal architecture and successor to the GeForce GTX 960M. Is manufactured in a 14nm process at Samsung and the technical specifications are very similar to the desktop version.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Max-Q: Efficient mid-range graphics card for thin and light laptops based on the same GP107 chip as the normal GTX 1050 for laptops but at slower clock speeds. Offers a approx. 10 - 15% lower performance than the laptop GTX 1050 but at a much lower power consumption.

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

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.

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


Intel Kaby Lake Refresh:

i5-8550U: Kaby-Lake-Refresh based low power quad-core processor. The four cores are clocked between 1.8 and 4 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading. The integrated GPU is clocked between 300 and 1,150 MHz. The SoC is manufactured in a 14nm+ FinFET process.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  

i7-8565U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The four cores are clocked between 1.8 and 4.6 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.

Intel Core i5:

i5-8265U: Whiskey Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Kaby Lake but produced in a further improved 14nm++ process). The four cores are clocked between 1.6 and 3.9 GHz (Turbo Boost) and support HyperThreading.

Intel Comet Lake:

i7-10510U: Comet Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced in 14nm++). The CPU cores can clock between 1.8 and 4.9 GHz (all 4 cores 4.3 GHz max.) with HyperThreading (8 threads). The integrated memory controller supports DDR4-2666 and using cTDP up/down the performance can be adjusted by the OEM (10 - 25 Watt possible, 15W default).

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


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


1.9 kg:

This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.

2.1 kg:

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.


81.43%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
