70% Asus ZenBook 14 UX425 review: Reliable performer
Source: Gadgets Now English
Asus ZenBook 14 UX425 has a strong build, a matte-finish design which is scratch-free and a backlit keyboard with multi-functional keys. Its compact form-factor, fast processor and long battery life with quick charge support seem to be further making a point. Priced at Rs 95,990, the laptop can be a good choice for the office goers who want a reliable device with strong performance and long battery life.

The ZenBook UX425JA will compete with Xiaomi's Mi Notebook 14 Horizon Edition on the low end, and the Dell XPS 13 and HP Spectre models as well as the MacBook Air (2020) if you have a generous budget. The variant I tested officially costs Rs. 95,990, which is a lot to pay. Still, a laptop like this would have cost much more not too long ago. The Core i5 variant at Rs. 79,990 will be more attractive, and is an interesting option for those who want something one step up from the mainstream.

86% Asus Zenbook 14 (UX425) Review — A Truly Refined Machine But Not Without Its Quirks
Source: Pokde English
ASUS is asking for RM4699 for the ASUS ZenBook 14 (UX425), which is pretty reasonable for all the hardware they crammed into the machine. The battery life is good, the screen is great, keyboard is excellent and the trackpad is just exemplary. In a nutshell, it’s one fine ultraportable laptop. We can see that ASUS did put all of their knowledge into making it thinner, lighter and nicer to use, although the loss of the headphone jack is just absolutely uncalled for.

ASUS ZenBook 14 (UX425) Review – Good for school?
Source: The Tech Revolutionist English
It has been really quite a while since I’ve seen a sensible notebook computer in the market. The ASUS ZenBook 14 (UX425) is a value-oriented thin and light notebook computer that comes with premium design and features. Even though it is designed to be highly portable, ASUS did not make any trade-offs with this model. Therefore, we are still able to enjoy the notebook’s high performance, full-sized I/O ports and even the unique ASUS NumberPad 2.0.

Review – ASUS ZenBook 14 UX425: Great ultrabook but with a twist
Source: NLT English
I’d say yes. ASUS offers this laptop in two different sizes – either in 13-inches of 14-inches, but both of them are at the same price. My biggest complaint is this laptop not having an audio jack – but the importance of that varies depending on how you use your laptop.

85% Asus ZenBook 14 UX425 review (UX425JA – with Intel i7-1065G7 & Iris Pro)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
If you're looking for a portable everyday laptop that you plan to take to work or school and use for browsing, video streaming, Office apps, text editing, and these sorts of casual activities, this ZenBook 14 UX425JA should be on your list. The metallic construction, the excellent inputs and IO, the matte screens, the long battery life, and the snappy everyday experience, make this a good buy at around 1000-1200 USD, or the equivalent in your region. At the same time, this could be sturdier built, as well as more competent with demanding loads.

80% ASUS ZenBook 14 UX425 review: Is this the ZenBook we've been waiting for?
Source: Hardware Zone English
Comparisons against the older ZenBook UX434 are inevitable and the short answer is that you should pick the older ZenBook UX434 for performance and the newer ZenBook UX425 for portability. However, remember that the ZenBook UX434 doesn’t have Thunderbolt 3 ports nor does it support USB-C charging. On the other hand, the ZenBook UX425 doesn’t have a headphone jack. Each notebook has its pros and cons. Hopefully, ASUS will create the perfect ZenBook in the near future by melding the things we like about the two.

The best thing we can say about it is that it might be worth carrying around two dongles to take advantage of its excellent price/performance ratio. But the spoiler is the imminent release of ultraportables—including a newer ZenBook 14—with those 11th Generation Tiger Lake CPUs. It's almost certainly worth waiting for the next generation, if only to see whether the UX425JA's already tempting price is pushed even lower.

Source: Mobygyaan English
The ASUS Zenbook 14 UX425JA leaves a good impression with its thin and light form factor and clean minimalistic design. This is the lightest laptop you can get in the market right now and it’s impressive to see that it manages to fit a webcam inside even after being so slim and offering a 90% screen to body ratio. It’s a great laptop for the people who travel every day as its really portable and fits easily in your bag. The build quality is great and it surely feels premium. In addition to this, the LED Numberpad on the touchpad is something unique and gives the laptop a more premium feel.

ASUS ZenBook 14 UX425 review – a stylish ultrabook with humongous battery life
Source: Laptop Media English
In conclusion, this is a great little notebook that weighs just over a kilo, and its profile makes it feel lost in your hands. Additionally, ASUS was kind enough to include some USB Type-C dongles to potentially expand your Thunderbolt 3 experience. Not only that, but the NumberPad 2.0 and the ErgoLift hinge are nothing but bonuses, considering most laptops in this price range don’t offer such goodies.

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.

Intel Iris Plus Graphics G7 (Ice Lake 64 EU): Integrated graphics card in Intel Ice-Lake G7 SoCs based on the new Gen. 11 architecture with 64 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). The clock rate depends on the processor model ranging from 300 MHz base to 1050 - 1100 MHz boost. The Ice-Lake chips are produced in the modern 10nm process at Intel produced.

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 G1 (Ice Lake 32 EU): Integrated graphics card in Intel Ice-Lake G1 SoCs based on the new Gen. 11 architecture with 32 of the 64 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). The clock rate depends on the processor model ranging from 300 MHz base to 1050 - 1100 MHz boost. The Ice-Lake chips are produced in the modern 10nm process at Intel produced.

Intel Ice Lake:

i7-1065G7: Ice Lake based low power quad-core processor for thin and light laptops. The four cores clock between 1.3 - 3.9 GHz and should offer 18% more IPC (instructions per clock) than the previous generations (and therefore partly close the clock speed gap). Produced in 10nm at Intel.

i3-1005G1: Ice-Lake based low power quad core processor for thin and light laptops. Integrated two Sunnycove cores clocked at 1.2 - 3.4 GHz that support Hyperthreading (4 threads). Furthermore, the SoC integrates an entry level UHD Graphics G1 graphics card and Wifi 6 / Thunderbolt partly integrated. The chip is manufactured in the modern 10nm process at Intel.
