80% Lenovo Ideapad Flex 5-1570 Review and Ratings
Source: Computer Shopper English
The Lenovo Ideapad Flex 5-1570 may not be the fastest convertible laptop that money can buy, but it offers a great balance between price and performance. Listed at $929, and available from online vendors for around $850 at the time of this review, it performs reasonably well, features plenty of screen size, and offers a design that works well enough for business, education, or personal use.

It's unwieldy, like all 15.6-inch convertibles, but the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5-1570 is an attractive 2-in-1 at a bargain price. If you're seeking a bigger laptop/tablet experience, it's worth grappling with.

80% Lenovo Ideapad Flex 5 (15”) Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
The Lenovo Flex 5 15 is a solid choice if you’re in the market for a large multimedia notebook. Good things about this notebook include its beautiful 15.6-inch touch display, good-feeling backlit keyboard, decent speakers, and storage expansion capability. It also put up outstanding battery life in our testing; it should last close to a full working day under normal non-strenuous usage. On the downside, the design of the Flex 5 15 isn’t particularly exciting, and its fans can be noisy when the system is stressed.

Comment

Model: The Lenovo Flex 5 1570-80XB0000US is a very affordable convertible laptop. At 2.13 kg (4.7 lb) and 2.03 cm (0.8 inch) thick, the Flex 5 1570 is similar in heft and size to the bend-back Lenovo Yoga 720 (2.09 kg/4.6 lb, 2.03 cm/0.8 inch). It is a stylish 2-in-1 laptop with powerful processing, vibrant 15.6-inch display, and long-lasting battery life. A user can boost their experience further with cutting-edge accessories like the optional Lenovo Active Pen for creativity and a fingerprint reader for instant login. The Flex's 360-degree hinges are plenty sturdy, as the Flex 5 stays in place in both tent and display modes. It is a thin and light, foldable, touchscreen laptop with multiple ways to engage; classic laptop mode for maximum productivity, stand mode for an optimal touch experience, tent mode for gaming & entertainment, and tablet mode for extra mobility and practicality. While its precision-cut beveled edges offer a clean, modern look, the enhanced touchpad provides smoother comfort and improved control. Finished in sleek aluminum, the Flex 5 is available in Onyx Black. For hardware specification, it features a 7th Gen 7500U (2.70 GHz) processor, 8 GB of RAM, and a 256 GB SSD. It is set up as a configuration that makes this 2-in-1 well-suited for highly productive days. With a Nvidia GeForce 940MX graphics card (with 2 GB of VRAM) on board, the Flex 5 will not support demanding games, but it can support more modest titles.

The excellent 15.6-inch display in the Flex 5 offers bright, colorful, hi-res picture quality. The 1,920 x 1,080 pixels panel produces clear and high contrast display. The Flex 5's touchscreen accurately tracks touch input and correctly registered swipe-in gestures. There is no latency when doodling in MS Paint, drawing in Fresh Paint or navigating the web in the Edge browser. The Flex 5's keyboard allows for a comfortable and productive typing experience. While the Flex 5's keys do not have a long travel (they have 1.3 mm, falling below the preferred minimum of 1.5 mm), they feature an acceptable 60 grams of actuation. Lenovo pre-loaded the Flex 5 with some apps. The user will find Lenovo Settings, which is valuable for its easy access to preferences such as Dolby audio presets and power controls for better long-term battery life. The Lenovo Companion app makes it easy to find system information, such as make and model number, serial number, and warranty status. On the IdeaPad's left edge, a user will find USB 3.0 and USB-C ports. Note that the latter is just a USB 3.0 data port with the newer connector, not a Thunderbolt 3 port—along with an audio jack, HDMI video output, and connector for the AC power adapter. A second USB 3.0 port, an SD card slot, the power button, the system reset pinhole, and the security lock slot are on the right edge. The Lenovo Flex 5 1570-80XB0000US is suitable for those who need a little bit of everything in a laptop.

NVIDIA GeForce 940MX: Mid-range laptop graphics card based on the Maxwell architecture. Compared to the older 940M, the MX now also supports GDDR5 graphics memory and maybe slightly faster clock speeds. With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  
7500U: Kaby-Lake based SoC with two CPU cores clocked at 2.7 to 3.5 GHz, HyperThreading and manufactured with an improved 14nm process.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

Lenovo: Lenovo ( "Le" as in the English word legend and "novo" (Latin) for new) was founded in 1984 as a Chinese computer trading company. From 2004, the company has been the largest laptop manufacturer in China and got the fourth largest manufacturer worldwide after the acquisition of IBM's PC division in 2005. In addition to desktops and notebooks, the company also produces monitors, projectors, servers, etc.

In 2011, Lenovo acquired the majority of Medion AG, a European computer hardware manufacturer. In 2014, Lenovo took over Motorola Mobility, which gave them a boost in the smartphone market.

From 2014 to 2016 Lenovo's market share in the global notebook market was 20-21%, ranking second behind HP. However, the distance decreased gradually. In the smartphone market, Lenovo did not belong to the Top 5 global manufacturers in 2016.


76.67%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
