87.7% Asus Zenbook Pro 15 OLED UM535Q laptop review: Like an AMD-powered XPS 15 | Notebookcheck
As one of the few 15.6-inch laptops to pair an AMD Zen 3 Ryzen 9 CPU with an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 Ti, the ZenBook Pro 15 OLED is able to offer more performance than most other ultrathin multimedia laptops out there. We would have preferred an older GTX 1660 Ti option, however.

ASUS ZenBook Pro 15 OLED (UM535) review – great display complemented by powerful hardware
Source: Laptop Media English
This device has been designed to be a tool for young content creators, who need a lot of performance and stability, without the need to tinker with their notebook. It is basically plug-and-play and delivers what it needs to. This includes a great performance from both the CPU and the GPU. And while the RTX 3050 Ti is no beast, it is still great for 4K video editing, and playing pretty much all current AAA titles at 1080p. At the end of the day, the ZenBook Pro 15 OLED (UM535) is one solid machine. One of its direct competitors is Dell’s XPS 15 9510, which is significantly more expensive and has an inferior cooling solution.

60% Asus Zenbook Pro 15 Flip OLED (Q529ZA) Review
Source: PC Mag English
This 15-inch laptop wows with its speedy, high-resolution OLED display, but then doesn’t offer the graphics needed by the type of users that would most benefit from it—namely, gamers and content creators. With the Intel Core i7-12700H, it’s halfway to being a suitable content creation convertible, but you are stuck with integrated Intel graphics, which puts a ceiling on its media-editing capabilities. Plus, despite the cool, deep blue aluminum chassis, we aren’t wild about the chassis or keyboard. Finally, the 720p webcam feels antiquated at this point. Better convertibles are readily available at this size and price, including the HP Spectre x360 16 and Lenovo Yoga 7i 16 Gen 7.

The Asus Zenbook Pro 15 Flip OLED has the full package: great looks, handles work and play like a boss, thin and light, an amazing OLED touchscreen, a solid sound system - the list goes on. Too bad it's so difficult to actually buy one!

[REVIEW] ASUS Zenbook Pro 15 Flip OLED (UP6502) - THE device for serious users
Source: Laptop Media English
Single Review, online available, Medium, Date: 07/16/2023
ASUS Zenbook Pro 15 Flip OLED (UP6502) review – a diligent product for serious users
Source: Laptop Media English
The Zenbook Pro 15 Flip OLED (UP6502) runs really quickly, considering its form factor. We see almost no implications derived from the small volume inside its chassis. The main reason for that, by the way, is the ErgoLift mechanism, and the quite large cooling capacity. Speaking of which, the Intel Arc A370M GPU is no match for the dual-heat pipe cooling solution. However, it is no match for the RTX 3050 too, especially in games. Whether it’s because of the suboptimal driver support, or this is just how much the hardware can do, we don’t know. What we know, is that ASUS Zenbook Pro 15 Flip OLED (UP6502)’s display has a high resolution, comfortable viewing angles, and blazingly quick pixel response times. They are paired with a 120Hz refresh rate, which results in an incredibly smooth viewing experience. Its full sRGB and DCI-P3 coverage mean that you are going to look at a super attractive image. Moreover, its color accuracy is good-enough for professional work. One thing that is not so great, however, is the presence of PWM. Again, “MyASUS” takes care of that with its “Flicker-Free Dimming” function. In addition to that, you get a long battery life. The 96Wh battery will get you through more than 12 hours of Web browsing, or about 11 hours of video playback on a single charge. Furthermore, you can choose from three performance presets, which do have an impact on performance, noise, and battery longevity. Naturally, noise is directly attached to comfort. This notebook is indeed, really comfortable. Its keyboard is clicky, and has long key travel, while the touchpad is super smooth and accurate. While the device comes with two Thunderbolt 4 connectors, an HDMI 2.1 port, a USB Type-A 3.2 (Gen. 2) port, and a MicroSD card reader, its HDMI port is the 18Gbps unit, which ties it with the standard HDMI 2.0. Not in last place, there is the soldered memory problem. Well, it works as intended, but it can’t be upgraded. On the bright side, you can find one M.2 PCIe x4 slot for storage. We are also happy with the build quality of the product, its IR face recognition scanner, and of course – the stylus work. Ultimately, the Zenbook Pro 15 Flip OLED (UP6502) has its downsides, but it was really exciting using it, and we are confident that it will satisfy its target user base.

69.62%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
