Reviews for the Asus Zenbook S 13 OLED

90.1% AMD Ryzen 7 6800U Efficiency Review - Zen3+ beats Intel Alder Lake | Notebookcheck
We had to wait quite a while but we finally got our hands on AMD’s latest mobile processors from the Ryzen 6000U generation. We compare the Zen3+ cores of the new Ryzen 7 6800U with Intel’s current Alder Lake-P platform as well as Apple’s M1 Pro SoCs. Who builds the best chip for compact laptops? Update: Results for Ryzen 7 5800U added
90.1% Asus Zenbook S 13 OLED laptop review: Subnotebook impresses with fast AMD Ryzen 7 6800U | Notebookcheck
Asus' new Zenbook S 13 is an extremely compact notebook weighing just over 1 kg that does not cut back on a whole lot of performance thanks to the new AMD Ryzen 7 6800U. The OLED screen ensures good image quality that is free of PWM thanks to a software solution.

The Asus ZenBook S 13 OLED lives up to its name – its OLED display is stunning, with huge quality and clarity. Beyond that, this laptop is slim, light and has a great keyboard. Its battery life impresses, and it’s got the power for multi-tasking and mainstream creative work. Its price even undercuts most rivals. That’s not to say the Apple MacBook Air M2, Dell XPS 13 and other rivals are without their charms. Apple’s machine is faster. The Dell XPS 13 is slimmer than the Asus and it has Thunderbolt, and the XPS 13 Plus is available with faster processors and OLED panels. There’s no doubt that the ZenBook is a great competitor, though – easily able to stand alongside those other laptops. Its great screen, solid internals and lengthy battery life make this an excellent ultraportable.

90% AMD Ryzen 7 6800U Review – with ASUS ZenBook S 13 OLED
Source: Kitguru English
The most notable downside that I see with the Ryzen 7 6800U is that its media consumption capabilities are still not as good as they should be. Intel’s competing solutions even from as far back as 10th Gen Ice Lake have better capabilities with real-world media types in my own testing. And even in isolation, the inability to play 8K60 content from YouTube is not really a great showing for a 2022 market where 8K60 video output genuinely is not unreasonable. Still, there’s plenty to like from the Ryzen 7 6800U; excellent power efficiency delivers excellent battery life, and that efficiency also allows the powerful chip to be squeezed inside alluring, ultraportable laptops such as this sub-15mm, 1kg ASUS ZenBook S 13 OLED. The ASUS laptop is glorious – they’ve done a really good job at deploying high-end hardware that is fitting of the highly-competent Ryzen processor. Ample Type-C connectivity, impending USB4 support, a 2.8K OLED touch display – this laptop ticks many boxes.

100% Asus Zenbook S 13 OLED Review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
The Asus Zenbook S 13 OLED is one of the best laptops I’ve ever reviewed. Its cutting-edge AMD chip is super-speedy, even capable of playing games, while the high-resolution OLED display is breathtaking for video. Its fans can get irritatingly loud under strain, and the lack of USB-A ports is irksome – but those are minor blemishes on an otherwise fantastic all-rounder laptop.

85% Asus Zenbook S 13 OLED review: Good things come in small packages
Source: India Today English
If you have come this far, you know that the Zenbook S 13 OLED is best suitable for business and creative professionals who want performance without any compromise on the battery life. Add to it the OLED screen, which is sharp and offers accurate colours. Design is usually subjective and, if you ask me, I really like the overall design. I do wish for an SD card slot, considering the laptop’s target audience. A less powerful version of Ryzen 7 6800U, with no high refresh rate display and no dedicated graphics, is a clear sign that the laptop is not a go-to gaming machine. However, you too, like me, can do some casual gaming on the Zenbook S 13 OLED. If you want a macOS alternative for a similar use case, there is the new MacBook Air M2 coming soon. Apple has already unveiled the MacBook Air M2 and it is expected to go on sale soon in India. The Air M2 is priced at Rs 1,19,900 for the base configuration. However, we still have not reviewed the laptop, so there’s no easy recommendation as yet for that one. The generation-old M1 MacBook Air is still up for grabs but we would suggest waiting for the M2 MacBook Air since it comes with a bunch of upgrades over the outgoing model.

Review – ASUS Zenbook S 13 OLED UM5302: Another near-perfect laptop, but for different reasons
Source: NLT English
So in conclusion. Previously, I called the ASUS Zenbook 14 OLED UX5402 with the Intel Core i7-1260P a “near-perfect” laptop. Then, is the ASUS Zenbook S 13 OLED UM5302 the perfect laptop? Well, not exactly. As an ultrabook, the performance is absolutely magnificent. I’d say it’s at the top of its class, especially for an x86 chip that only consumes 28W. The build quality is something that you may or may not prefer since it’s lighter in weight, and it also has a 60Hz touchscreen OLED. Honestly, for me, I’ll pick this Zenbook S 13 OLED UM5302 over the other laptop. This suits my usage behavior more. For the local availability, the Zenbook S 13 OLED UM5302 is priced at RM5,999 for the exact same configuration that we are reviewing, and there are no other configurations available. I think the price is just too hefty. And that’s all we have to share with you. This is a magnificent laptop.

Source: Ultrabook Review English
The ZenBook S 13 is a more compelling ultrabook than any of its 13-inch ZenBook predecessors before, and one of the best-value ultraportables available as of mid-2022. That's partially a consequence of the multiple improvements that Asus brought to this design, as well as of the implementation of the excellent AMD Ryzen 6000 hardware platform, even if it doesn't run at its full potential in this compact and power-limited chassis.

Source: Ultrabook Review English
We’ll know more once we get a final review unit with the finalized BIOS and software. We’ll be able to have a better picture of the power settings, overall performance, and the noise/thermals of this configuration. Based on what I’m seeing so far, this ZenBook S 13 is going to be an excellent ultrabook, quiet and efficient with daily use, and a competent performer for its class when needed. I’m not entirely happy with Asus pushing their OLED panels so aggressively, though, and no longer offering any IPS options. This OLED screen sure looks awesome, but I’m mostly using my laptop outside when traveling, so I preffer an anti-glare matte finishing, as well as the hassle-free experience of a proper IPS panel. The other potential deal-breaker for me is the USB-C only IO, as I preffer having at least access to an USB-A port without requiring an adapter. The previous ZenBook 13 offers a USB-A port and a full-size HDMI, but this 2022 model does not. Still, if these aren’t bothering you and you are in the market for a versatile 13-inch ultraportable, then the Asus ZenBook S 13 UM5302 could be the one for you.
