LG Gram 14 (2022) laptop review: Sleek, lightweight & economical

Featherweight. The LG Gram 14 is an impressive laptop and strongly represents the sub-1kg (~2.2 lbs) class. In 2022, the compact 14-inch laptop receives an upgrade to the Core i5-1240P and (finally) a matte display, both of which we will review in detail.

Last year's 2021 model based on the Core i7-1165G7 received an excellent score of 88 % in our review. Now, LG has released its promising successor. The main differences and improvements are a matte display, which still uses the 16:10 aspect ratio and a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels (still only 60 Hz). At least on paper, the CPU upgrade looks huge as well. Instead of a quad-core Intel Tiger Lake chip, the 2022 model uses the 12-core Intel Alder Lake Core i5-1240P. The remaining specifications of the Gram 14Z90Q are less interesting. 16 GB of RAM and a 512-GB NVMe SSD are equally standard at the 1000-USD price point (the device starts from about 1080 USD). Finally, Windows 11 Home is the operating system of choice.

Case

Visually, not much has changed in terms of the case. However, LG now uses a more delicate font for the key legends and a rubber bar instead of round rubber feet on the back of the case to improve the stability. The build quality of the new chassis is excellent. Although the surfaces, which consist of a magnesium alloy according to the manufacturer, feel more like plastic than metal, the Gram 14 looks fairly premium.

That being said, users should not expect too much in terms of the rigidity. Under a moderate amount of pressure, both the center of the keyboard and the touchpad area yield noticeably. Similarly, the lid is not very resistant against twisting attempts from the corners. Regardless, most users should still regard the rigidity as still acceptable for a laptop this thin. The design of the Gram 14 warrants no criticism. The thin look (height of just 16.8 mm or ~0.62 in), small bezels, decisive desing language and the white color scheme make the 14-inch device very attractive.

The low weight is the LG Gram's biggest strength. 980 g (~2.16 lb) makes for a very lightweight device, which makes its competitors look outdated and heavy at 1.3-1.4 kg (~2.87-3.09 lb). Barely any laptop is as portable as the Gram 14.

Connectivity

Ports

The port selection is similar to that of the previous model. While an audio jack, an HDMI output (with an unspecified version), and two USB 4 type-C ports with Power Delivery and DisplayPort or Thunderbolt 4 occupy the left side, a microSD card reader, two traditional USB 3.2 type-A ports, and a Kensington lock are located on the right. Since the ports are near the back on both sides, there should be no interferring cables when using an external mouse.

SD Card Reader

The performance of the card reader is fairly average. At almost 70 MB/s when transferring photos, one might confuse our test device with the Lenovo IdeaPad 5 Pro 14. Only the Dell Latitude 7420 is able to significantly outperform its peers (almost 200 MB/s).

Communication

An Intel module handles wireless networking. In combination with our new Asus reference router (for which we do not have results from competitors), the Wi-Fi 6E AX211 reaches an excellent range. A transfer rate of 1700 Mb/s when receiving data from a distance of 1 m (~3.28 ft) warrants no criticism.

Webcam

Unfortunately, the webcam is not quite as good as the Full HD resolution suggests. While the higher resolution results in a slightly better sharpness compared to many competitors, it falls short overall in terms of the image quality (e.g. due to poor color accuracy).

Accessories

Aside from some paperwork, the laptop also comes with a 65-watt charger that is not only very compact (~9.5 x 6 x 2.5 cm / ~3.74 x 2.36 x 0.98 in), lightweight (~230 g / ~0.51 lb), and beautifully rounded-off, but also matches the white chassis.

Maintenance

Since the screws on the bottom plate are hidden beneath (glued) rubber parts, we decided against opening the device (device courtesy of a store). Teardown videos, which show the internals of the Gram 14 are available on YouTube.

Input Devices

Keyboard

In light of the thin construction, the keyboard feels surprisingly good. The feedback and actuation point are crisp and distinct, respectively, compared to other 14-inch laptops, while the key clatter can be relatively loud. During normal typing, the keyboard barely yields. Typists who are not necessarily bound to quiet environments such as libraries, should be pleased with the Gram 14. There is room for improvement when it comes to the layout, however. The ANSI layout enter key is present even on ISO region models, which also feature a split left shift key. Furthermore, the combined insert/delete and the power button being part of the main key row is less than ideal. Meanwhile, the cramped arrow keys are unfortunately present on many other laptops.

Of course, the Gram 14's keyboard also includes a backlight with two brightness levels. Depending on the time of day, viewing angle, and ambient light conditions, the combination of white keys and the white backlight can make the key legends harder to read. Here, black keys or a different backlight color may have been better.

Touchpad

There are no real surprises when it comes to the touchpad - and that is a good thing. At around 11 x 7 cm (~4.33 x 2.76 in), it is sufficiently large for a 14-inch laptop. Thanks to the smooth surface, it offers good gliding properties while being comfortable to use. The integrated buttons on the bottom half of the pad offer a moderate haptic feedback. Similar to the keyboard, the key clatter is definitely noticeable. Furthermore, the clickpad could have been stiffer near the corners, where it can be pushed relatively far into the case. The supported multi-touch gestures work reliably most of the time. We found no issues with the precison of inputs, either..

Display

In terms of the display, LG once again uses one of its own models. Both professional users and outdoor enthusiasts should be pleased with LG's decision to replace the glossy panel of the older model with a matte version.

Although at 305 nits, the average brightness is slightly lower compared to the predecessor's (332 nits), the screen's content is significantly easier to discern in many situations and eyestrain is reduced. Similarly, a slightly lower contrast (1312:1 vs. 1600:1) and a slightly worse black value (0.26 vs. 0.22 nits) will likely be seen as worthwhile tradeoffs for the non-glossy surface by most users.

In other aspects, both panels panels perform fairly simlarly, which may not be a coincidence considering their similar IDs (LP140WU1). Both the 100-% DCI-P3 color space coverage and the color accuracy are excellent outside of the faint blue tint ex-factory (our calibrated ICC file is availble for download to the right of the illumination graphic).

The response times of the display are less impressive. Almost 25 to 48 ms represents a relatively poor value that is not ideal for gaming. Here, some competing 14-inch laptops (such as the Lenovo devices) perform better. We are also hoping for a display with a slightly higher maximum brightness of 400 nits or more on the next generation, since some competitors already manage to reach this value. The viewing angles of the LG Gram 14 are good due to the underlying IPS technology. We did not detect PWM flickering or similar issues.

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
24.5 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 10.3 ms rise
↘ 14.2 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 0.4 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 48 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (22.7 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
47.5 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 21.3 ms rise

The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.25 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 78 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (35.8 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: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 19454 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Performance

In terms of the performance, the LG Gram 14 is a mid-range device. The manufacturer uses a balanced combination of components, which - outside of gaming and other 3D applications - make the ultrabook fairly flexible.

Testing Conditions

The preinstalled and well-organized Smart Assistant contains various system settings. Most of the important settings are available directly in the first menu. The thermal profile heavily influences the performance and noise characteristics. Unless stated otherwise, we performed all of the following benchmarks using the default setting normal.

Processor

The CPU performance is disappointing while using the normal mode. Even though the Core i5-1240P is nominally significantly faster than the older Core i5-1165G7, its benchmark results are only slightly higher. This is very surprising, since the Alder Lake model doubles the 11th gen CPU's 8 threads (the 4 performance cores support hyper-threading).

For significantly better results, the Gram 14 has to be set to the thermal profile "high", which dramatically increases the performance. 1500 instead of 950 points in Cinebench R15 Multi-Thread represents an improvement of almost 60 %. However, this still puts the Gram 14 behind the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Pro, which is equipped with the same CPU. It seems like the cooling solution of the Gram 14 is at its limit with the Core i5-1240P.

GPU Performance

The 14-inch laptop has to make do without a dGPU. Since the Iris Xe Graphics G7 of the Core i5-1240P only has access to 80 EUs as opposed to the older Core i5-1165G7 Iris Xe's 96 EUs, the GPU benchmark scores are slightly lower. In the 3DMark benchmarks, the predecessor's GPU performance is around 40 % faster on average. Despite being restricted to the same EU count, the Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Pro is also faster (~ 15 %), which reflects poorly on the cooling solution and the performance management of the Gram 14.
