LG Gram 16 (2022) Laptop review: Lightweight device with stability issues

Finally a matte display. The 2021 version of the LG Gram 16 received a good rating from us last year. As part of its 2022 update, LG has dealt with one of our major points of criticism: the reflective display. Find out what else is new in our detailed review.
LG Gram 16

At 1300 Euros, the model we tested (16Z900) certainly isn't the cheapest deal you'll find in the office segment. The device is equipped with a Core i7-1260P from Intel's Alder Lake generation, 16 GB of soldered DDR5 RAM (5200 MHz) and a 1-TB NVMe SSD in M.2 format. Images are displayed on a 16-inch 16:10 IPS screen with 1560 x 1600 pixels which supposedly covers just under 100% of the P3 color space (unlike the 15-inch model we tested recently). The operating system is Windows 11 Home 64 Bit.

The LG Gram 16's competitors (most of them heavier) include other 16-inch notebooks equipped with a Core i7-1260P, such as the Lenovo Yoga 7 16IAP7 and the Dell Inspiron 16 7620, although these devices are actually convertibles/2-in-1 notebooks. We have also included the Lenovo ThinkPad T16 G1 with a Core i5-1240P in the comparison. This device's iGPU only has 80 instead of 96 EUs.

Case

With the exception of a few minor details (shape of the camera, key labeling), the case looks exactly the same as last year's version. According to LG, it is made of a magnesium alloy, which sounds great on paper. In practice, we were not particularly impressed by the material. It feels and sounds more like plastic to us, and – and this is the bigger issue – isn't very rigid and stable. Particularly the center of the base unit is very sensitive to pressure and the display cover warps easily. The laptop would probably have benefited from slightly thicker (which also means heavier) materials.

No device can compete with the Gram 16's low weight. At 1.2 kg, it is very easy to carry around with you. Competitors weigh quite a lot more at around 2.0 kg, although this also makes them more stable. We are very pleased with the 16-inch device's looks. Thanks to its narrow bezels and elegant yet discreet design (the Grams are available in white, gray, or black, depending on the model), the notebook will look good in any scenario. The workmanship is satisfactory and the hinges do a good job, although the lid tends to slip quite quickly when subjected to vibrations.

Connectivity

Port selection

The port selection is similar to that of the old Gram 16. While the left side harbors an HDMI port (with no further specifications), an audio jack, and two modern USB 4 ports with support for Tunderbolt 4, DisplayPort and Power Delivery, the right side features a microSD card reader, a Kensington lock and two classic USB A ports (3.2 Gen2). All ports are positioned towards the back of the device, which gives users plenty of space when working with an external mouse. Unlike other Grams, the device does not come equipped with a USB-to-LAN adapter.

SD Card Reader

The card reader's performance is average. It reaches a speed of 87 MB/s during sequential reading and 76 MB/s when transferring photos with our reference SD card. These results are very similar to those of the Lenovo Yoga 7.

Communication

The new Gram sets itself apart from its predecessor in terms of Wi-Fi speed. LG has upgraded this device from an Intel Wi-FI AX201 to a Wi-Fi AX 211. At a distance of 1 m to our current reference router (Asus ROG Rapture AXE11000), the 16-inch laptop achieved approx. 1600 Mbit/s when sending and receiving. This is an excellent result.

Webcam

Although the webcam has a slightly higher resolution (Full HD) and more accurate colors than most office notebooks, you mustn't expect too much from the Gram 16's webcam.

Accessories

Apart from a nicely light and compact 65-watt USB C power adapter, the device only comes with a few brochures. 

Maintenance

Any maintenance work on the Gram 16 would be rather complicated, as all screws are hidden beneath rubber covers. Because we received our test unit from an online shop rather than from the manufacturer, we chose not to open the chassis. 

Warranty

The device has a 24-month warranty.

Input Devices

Keyboard

With the exception of the meager stability, the keyboard made a good impression on us. While the layout (small one-row enter key on the German version, tiny arrow keys, three-column number pad, ...) and feedback/typing aren't perfect, we believe most buyers should be perfectly happy with the keyboard. As would be expected, the device features white backlighting with two levels of brightness.

Touchpad

The touchpad is gratifyingly large at 13 x 8 cm. The relatively smooth surface ensures good gliding properties, and precision and gesture-support are satisfactory. The clickable bottom section is comfortable to use, but rattles somewhat, which impacts perceived quality.

Display

Although the new screen has a lower contrast ratio (1144:1 instead of 1505:1) because of the slightly higher black value (0.32 instead of 0.22 cd/²), we were much happier with the matte screen than with the predecessor's reflective panel.

* ... smaller is better

The luminosity is slightly higher by 40 cd/m² (347 instead of 309 cd/m²), which makes the Gram 16 easier to work with in bright surroundings, especially when working outdoors (although there remains plenty of room for improvement). Color accuracy has also improved compared to the previous year's model. Even ex-works, the Delta 2000 value is within the ideal range below 3.

No improvements were made in terms of response rates (they remain mediocre) and color space coverage. The latter was already very good last year, with almost 100% coverage of the sRGB/P3 color space and 85% coverage of AdobeRGB. The viewing angles are what you would expect from an IPS display.

We hope that the next version will be equipped with an even brighter display with 400 or even 500 nits and a faster refresh rate (144+ instead of 60 Hz).

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
19.7 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 7.4 ms rise
↘ 12.3 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 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 38 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (21.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
45.7 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 20.5 ms rise
↘ 25.2 ms fall
The screen shows slow response rates in our tests and will be unsatisfactory for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 76 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is worse than the average of all tested devices (33.7 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 17803 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Performance

The Gram 16's performance is mid-range for office notebooks. The 16 GB of RAM and 1-TB SSD should suffice for most users for the coming year.

The easy-to-use LG Smart Assistant lets you select the cooling mode from various options. Our tests were all done at the standard "normal" setting unless stated otherwise.

Processor

The Core i7-1260P is home to four performance cores that support hyperthreading and eight efficiency cores without hyperthreading. This means that the chip can work a total of 16 threads in parallel. The Gram 16 doesn't do particularly well during the Cinebench loop, which measures performance over an extended period of time. First, because its performance starts to drop significantly from the second round, and second, because the results fluctuate greatly throughout the test. This is not a particularly good sign for cooling or energy management. The cooling mode "high" (see graph) avoids this problem but also makes the device noticeably louder.
