Reviews for the Asus ROG Zephyrus G15 GA503QS
We’re liking almost everything about the Zephyrus G15. It’s got a beautiful design, has a premium build, great display and performance, large RAM and storage, and good battery life. The lack of a built-in webcam can be a minor issue, especially to those who are into video calls a lot, but the external webcam kinda makes it up for it. The lack of RGB might be a minor downer for some, but not a deal-breaker. As for the price, the ASUS ROG Zephyrus G15 GA503QS-HQ017TS (RTX 3080 8GB GDDR6 / 15″ WQHD / 165Hz / R9-5900HS / 1TB PCIE3 SSD / 16GB x 2) is priced at PHP 179,995. It’s a great option if you’re looking for something that is close to the power of the top-of-the-line Zephyrus S17 but with a lower asking price.

It's hard to pick holes – serious or otherwise – in the Asus Zephyrus G15. The only improvements I would make would be the addition of a biometric webcam and a fingerprint scanner. But neither of those comes even close to being a deal-breaker. I’m not sure the top-end version I tested is the best-value model in the range, but then quality always comes at a price. Everything else about the Zephrus G15 is spot on. This isn’t just a great follow-up to the G14, it’s also a supremely versatile laptop that should satisfy the demanding gamer, the creative wonk, the media binger and the general home or business user. Load up on guns, bring your friends, just as Messrs Cobain, Grohl and Novoselic suggested.

We were already super impressed with the Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 last year, calling it one of our favorite gaming laptops ever, but this year's G15 model really pulls out all the stops. Packing a super-powerful AMD Ryzen 9 5900HS chip and an Nvidia 3080 GPU along with a super-smooth 2560x1440 screen at 165hz with G-sync, the G15 is a powerhouse. It also looks pretty darn nice, and sports an excellent keyboard and decent battery life. It can even manage Cyberpunk 2077 on the go, what more do you need?

On paper, this Zephyrus G15 is an incredible-value 15-inch portable laptop, with the fastest hardware available in this segment as of early 2021, good inputs and IO, excellent speakers, a big battery, and what I consider to be the best multi-purpose display available right now. The value is in the 3070 and 3060 configurations, though, not in the expensive 3080 models, given the little performance gains these deliver in comparison. Furthermore, Asus took some weird decisions with this series, with an impact on its everyday practicality, performance in demanding loads, and thermals, among others. We'll get in-depth in the lengthy review down below.
