Asus ZenBook S13 UX392FN (i7-8565U, GeForce MX150) Laptop Review

It keeps getting better. The 13.9-inch ZenBook S13 UX392 is the closest thing you can get to a Dell XPS 14 with even faster graphics performance than what the XPS 13 currently has to offer. Aside from a couple of head-scratching omissions, there's very little to dislike about Asus' latest flagship Ultrabook.

Asus unveiled its ZenBook S13 UX392 series at CES 2019 as the successor to last year's UX391 series. The OEM is doubling down on even narrower bezels on all four sides of the screen while still managing to keep the dedicated GeForce MX150 GPU option.

The new UX392 Ultrabook is notable for several reasons when compared to the competition. First, its webcam notch is a unique approach to narrowing the bezels without impacting the original position of the camera. Second, the system offers a larger 13.9-inch screen in a form factor that's the size of most narrow-bezel 13.3-inch Ultrabooks. Lastly, its trademark ErgoLift hinges have a distinct visual style that further differentiate the ZenBook series from other Ultrabooks.

Our test unit today is the higher-end SKU equipped with the Core i7-8565U CPU, GeForce MX150 GPU, 512 GB SSD, and 8 GB of RAM for $1400 USD. Other SKUs with the i5-8265U CPU, integrated UHD Graphics 620 GPU, 16 GB of RAM, and 256 GB/1 TB SSD are also available at different price points. Direct competitors to the ZenBook S13 UX392 include flagship Ultrabooks like the Dell XPS 13, LG Gram 14, HP Spectre 13, Huawei MateBook X Pro and MateBook 14, Lenovo Yoga C930, Samsung Notebook 9, Razer Blade Stealth, and the Acer Swift 7. We'll be comparing the UX392 to these aforementioned alternatives as well as its UX391 predecessor to find how what improvements the latest model has brought to the table.

Editor's note: Our ZenBook S13 test unit is a retail unit and not a pre-production or pre-sale unit from Asus. Our findings are representative of what you will get from retailers.

Case

Our biggest fear of having laptops with super narrow bezels and increasingly high screen-to-body ratios is chassis rigidity. A sleek and sexy design means nothing if it's as flexible and wobbly as a laminated piece of paper. The super-light LG Gram and Samsung Notebook 9 series, for example, have narrow bezels but they are are both significantly more flexible when compared to a MacBook Air or XPS 13. Fortunately, the ZenBook UX392 is surprisingly rigid from top to bottom despite its very small form factor. Both the lid and base exhibit no creaking and almost no flexing for a high quality first impression. The hinges and keyboard center are firm with no teetering and just minimal yielding with applied pressure, respectively.

Construction quality is excellent on our test unit with no uneven gaps or noticeable manufacturing defects.

If we are to nitpick, we still find the Spectre 13, Blade Stealth, and XPS 13 slightly more substantial in the hand because the skeletons of these alternatives feel thicker for potentially better longevity.

In terms of size and weight, the UX392 is slightly heavier and wider than last year's UX391 while being just as thick. In turn, the newer model is almost 20 mm shorter in length to make it feel even more compact than its predecessor. Many other 14-inch and even 13.3-inch Ultrabooks like the XPS 13 are heavier than the UX392 partly due to the ridiculously narrow bezels of the UX392 on all four sides of the display. Notable exceptions include the LG Gram 14 and Samsung Notebook 9, but these super-light alternatives lack discrete GPU options unlike on our Asus.

Connectivity

Port options have changed from the UX391 as the UX392 integrates both a MicroSD reader and a full-size USB Type-A port while dropping support for Thunderbolt 3. There is no integrated HDMI port either and so users will have to rely on the two USB Type-C gen. 2 ports for video output. Selection is limited as one would expect from a sub 14-inch Ultrabook.

Charging is accomplished via either of the two USB Type-C ports along the left edge. We would have preferred one USB Type-C port on each side of the laptop for charging convenience much like on the Huawei MateBook X Pro.

SD Card Reader

Transfer rates from the integrated MicroSD card reader are average at about 83 MB/s. Moving 1 GB of pictures from our UHS-II test card to desktop takes about 14 seconds compared to half that on the XPS 13. While some users will inevitably complain about the lack of a full-size SD reader, most competing Ultrabooks and subnotebooks lack card readers completely including the Lenovo Yoga C930, Huawei MateBook X Pro, Razer Blade Stealth, and HP Spectre 13.

It's worth noting that the MicroSD reader is not spring-loaded and a fully inserted card still protrudes by about 2 to 3 millimeters. We recommend removing the card first before stowing or risk damaging the card during movement.

Communication

The Intel 9560 offers Bluetooth 5 and a theoretical WLAN transfer rate of up to 1.73 Gbps compared to half that on most last generation Ultrabooks including Asus' own ZenBook S UX391. We didn't experience any connectivity issues during our time with the test unit.

Maintenance

The bottom panel is secured by eight T4 Torx screws. Aside from the relatively uncommon screw type, the panel is easy to remove and not tightly latched around the edges and corners.

Upgrade options are limited to the M.2 2280 slot as RAM and WLAN are soldered much like on the last generation ZenBook UX391.

Accessories and Warranty

Asus Mini Dock
Asus Mini Dock

The retail box includes a USB Type-C Mini Dock with USB Type-A, full-size HDMI, and USB Type-C and a protective sleeve for carrying the notebook. We appreciate these small extras especially since most other OEMs include only paper manuals with no other accessories.

The standard one-year limited warranty applies. Additional information on the manufacturer warranty can be found here.

Input Devices

Keyboard

Keyboard layout and tactility have not changed from the UX391. Key feedback and travel remain satisfactory with relatively quiet clatter overall except for the louder Space key. It's too bad that the Arrow keys are still half-sized and cramped. We still find the keyboard on the HP Spectre series to offer firmer feedback and deeper travel than on both the Asus UX392 and Dell XPS 13.

A three-level white backlight is included. We appreciate the fact that the printing on the keys are tan in color for a better contrast against the white keycaps. In comparison, the gray printing on white HP Spectre models is more difficult to see especially when the white backlight is active.

Touchpad

The clickpad is one of the more disappointing aspects of the UX392. While its small size is understandable and comparable to the trackpad on the XPS 13 (10.5 x 6.2 cm vs. 10.5 x 6.0 cm), feedback from the integrated mouse keys is weak and spongy. Travel is shallow to make the clicking experience unsatisfying. Furthermore, the trackpad surface tends to stick to the finger for an uneven glide. If there's one thing Asus could improve on, then it would definitely be the trackpad.

We're also somewhat disappointed that the trackpad does not feature a virtual NumPad as found on the ZenBook UX333/433/533 series. We're hopeful that Asus won't be phasing out the feature altogether.

Display

Asus offers no display options other than the default 1080p screen. Users expecting 4K UHD, touchscreen, matte, or native 120 Hz refresh rate may be disappointed. Even with this in mind, the narrow bezel display is easily the highlight of the UX392. It's bright at over 400 nits with both a high contrast ratio and wide gamut that are all indicative of a high quality panel at work. Since the screen is glossy, onscreen content appears crisp and free of any grains unlike on many matte displays. Response times are also much better than on the XPS 13 for noticeably less ghosting.

Interestingly, Asus has switched panel providers from AU Optronics on the UX391 to Tianma for the UX392. We definitely find the change worthwhile as this Tianma panel exhibits measurably better contrast, colors, response times, and color accuracy than on the UX391. The MateBook X Pro sports a Tianma XM panel as well albeit at a different resolution and aspect ratio.

Slight uneven backlight bleeding is present on our test unit that is thankfully minor enough to be unnoticeable.

* ... smaller is better

Color space covers sRGB almost entirely and 62 percent of the wider AdobeRGB standard. Results are a slight improvement over last year's UX391 and they are comparable to the displays of other flagship Ultrabooks including the HP Spectre x360 13 and Razer Blade Stealth. Graphic artists who demand an even wider color gamut may want to consider the larger ZenBook Pro UX580 series instead.

Further measurements with an X-Rite colorimeter reveal a surprisingly accurate display out of the box. Average Grayscale and color deltaE values sit at just 1.7 and 1.93, respectively, compared to over 5 on the last generation UX391. Our own attempts to calibrate the display improves both grayscale and gamma just barely. As such, an end-user calibration is not imperative since the display is already very accurate before any calibration.

Display Response Times

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
24.8 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 14 ms rise
↘ 10.8 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 40 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (25 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
47.2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 23.6 ms rise
↘ 23.6 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.9 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 77 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (39.8 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 not detected

In comparison: 51 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 9377 (minimum: 43 - maximum: 142900) Hz was measured.

Outdoor visibility is good when under shade because of the bright backlight. Its very glossy screen, however, will become apparent. Be prepared to fight the inevitable glare and adjust the display angle frequently especially when under bright ambient conditions.

Performance

Current SKUs are limited to the Core i5-8265U or Core i7-8565U with optional GeForce MX150 graphics. While its Whiskey Lake-U CPU options are newer than the Kaby Lake-R options on last year's UX391, raw processor performance is very similar between the two generations as our benchmarks below will show.

As suspected, the GeForce MX150 in the UX392 is the slower 10 W '1D12' variant compared to the faster 25 W '1D10' variant on the Razer Blade Stealth. VRAM has also been halved on the Asus from 4 GB GDDR5 on the Razer to just 2 GB. This isn't a surprise considering that previous generation ZenBooks are also equipped with the slower '1D12' GeForce MX150.

RAM is non-upgradeable and fixed at dual-channel 8 GB or 16 GB LPDDR3 2133 MHz.

 

Processor

CineBench R15
CineBench R15

CineBench results are within 3 percent of the average Core i7-8565U in our database taken from a sample size of 23 other laptops. In truth, however, this is barely any faster than the last generation Kaby Lake-R Core i7-8550U that the i7-8565U directly replaces. The older Asus UX430 with the i7-8550U, for example, scores just 3 to 6 percent slower than our UX392 and even other laptops with the less expensive Core i5-8265U show similar results. We recommend going with the Core i5-8265U configuration if possible as the performance difference will be minuscule at best.

Performance over time is slightly below expectations. By running CineBench R15 Multi-Thread in a loop, we can observe that CPU performance dips more sharply than on other laptops equipped with a Core i7-class CPU like the Huawei MateBook 13 or Dell XPS 13. The initial score of 728 points drops to 495 points after two loops to represent a steep dip of 32 percent. In other words, Intel Turbo Boost starts out strong before it eventually fizzles after a minute or so. This is further explored in our Stress Test section below.

See our dedicated page on the Core i7-8565U for more technical information and benchmark comparisons.

System Performance

PCMark benchmarks rank our UX392 consistently ahead of the last generation UX391 and even the Asus Zenbook 14 UX433FN equipped with the same CPU and GPU. In reality, however, the differences in scores are just a few percentage points on average and so users won't even notice any day-to-day performance benefits that Whiskey Lake-U can offer over Kaby Lake-R. The notable exception is the GeForce MX150 GPU which is significantly faster than the UHD Graphics 620 solution in the UX391 for digital content creation.

We experienced no software or hardware issues during our time with the UX392 test unit.

Storage Devices

Only a single M.2 storage slot is available with no internal secondary options. Our test unit ships with a 512 GB WDC PC SN520 NVMe SSD whereas our UX391 and UX433 were equipped with drives from Samsung and Intel, respectively. It appears that Asus sources from a wider pool of SSD providers for its ZenBook family. Note that this exact same Western Digital SSD can also be found on the MSI PS63.

Sequential read and write rates are about average for an NVMe drive. The Samsung PM961 can still outperform our WD drive by almost two times in terms of sequential read and write rates. Indeed, the WDC PC SN520 is only a PCIe x2 drive which is a bit disappointing to see on this pricey ZenBook.

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

GPU Performance

3DMark benchmarks rank our Asus 6 to 16 slower than the average GeForce MX150 GPU in our database taken from 43 other laptops. This is partly attributed to the slower 10 W GeForce MX150 in the Asus compared to the faster 25 W GeForce MX150 in laptops like the Razer Blade Stealth. The Razer, for example, is able to outscore our Asus by 18 to 40 percent. Nonetheless, users upgrading from the older GeForce 940MX or the UHD Graphics 620 will still see significant performance gains.

Gaming Performance

Real-world gaming performance is about 10 percent slower than the old GTX 950M whereas the Razer Blade Stealth with the faster 25 W GeForce MX150 is much closer to the GTX 960M. Even so, the ability to play popular titles like Fortnite, DOTA 2, and Rocket League at native 1080p and Low settings is great to have on such a compact laptop. We can record no recurring frame dips or performance throttling when idling on Witcher 3 for close to an hour.

See our dedicated page on the GeForce MX150 for more technical information and benchmark comparisons.
