Lenovo Ideapad Flex 5 (15) review – Wacom drivers and a 4K HDR display option
Source: Laptop Media English
At least on the bright side, you get Wi-Fi 6 support, fast storage, an SD card reader on board, and decent battery life. So, despite the fact that the laptop comes with a lot of features, including an optional Pen inside the box, the poor 1080p panel just won’t deliver if you are hoping for something marginally close to professional. However, Lenovo also offers the Ideapad Flex 5 (15) with a 4K unit, which has HDR and VESA certificates. Additionally, one of the great options on the market is the ASUS ZenBook Flip 15 (UX563).

80% Lenovo Ideapad Flex 5 AMD Review – A Little Thick But Worth The Price
Source: Pokde English
The Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 is a solid choice if you’re looking for a productivity laptop that’s easy to bring around and has good performance without breaking the bank. You got solid build quality, good battery life, it’s a proper 2-in-1 laptop with touchscreen support, and it already has dual-channel RAM from the get-go. This is pretty good value for money.

Lenovo Flex 5 14" 2-in-1 Review
Source: Mobile Tech Review English
Lisa Gade reviews the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5, an affordable 14” Windows 2-in-1 convertible laptop with 360 degree hinges, a full HD IPS touch screen and Wacom AES active pen support. The Lenovo has an Intel 10th gen Core i5 CPU with UHD graphics, 16GB DDR4 RAM and a 512GB M.2 NVMe SSD for $650. It has good build quality, a fingerprint scanner, webcam with privacy shutter, MS Precision trackpad and a backlit keyboard. Not bad for the price!

Lenovo Ideapad Flex 5 (14) review – the optional GeForce MX330 has its perks and drawbacks
Source: Laptop Media English
So, the Intel version of this laptop is having a lot of struggles. The most prominent one comes from the cooling solution – especially when you have the GeForce MX330 onboard. During gaming (and with the “Extreme performance” profile applied) we saw the temperatures to not only creep up but maintain at 93C on the GPU and 97C on the processor. And if you choose the more forgiving “Intelligent cooling” profile, you end up losing performance. By the way, introducing a cooling pad drastically improves the thermals of the notebooks, as it appears that the design of the device is not optimized for airflow. So, at the end of the day, it might just be a better choice to pick the Intel Core i7-1065G7 only with its integrated graphics. Or just go for the AMD options, as they will provide a lot more headroom for productivity.

Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 14ARE05-81X2004YGE

The Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 14ARE05-81X2004YGE is an ultraportable productivity laptop that is slightly thicker compared to similar products, but that does not change the fact that it is easy to be carried around, as it weighs a mere 1.6 kg. Furthermore, it is a 2-in-1 laptop, so the hinge allows the screen to be flipped up to 360 degrees, turning it into a tablet as well. As for the lid, it has a Light Teal colour scheme which appeals to a younger crowd. Even though it is made of plastic, it is surprisingly sturdy as does not feel cheap or easy to break. In addition, the Lenovo logo takes up a small space on the top-left side, giving it a minimalist look with a clean finish.

As far as the display is concerned, this laptop has been equipped with a 14-inch Full-HD IPS touchscreen along with a webcam with a privacy shutter in the top bezel. It is worth noting that the display supports the Lenovo Digital Pen. The pen is actually an optional extra that offers 4,096 levels of pressure sensitivity and includes two customizable buttons. This makes it a full-fledged digital stylus, unlike the integrated digital pens included with premium 2-in-1s like the Lenovo Yoga C940 and the Samsung Galaxy Book Flex. However, the display does suffer from a relatively dim backlight rated at just 250 nits of brightness. While the display is definitely fine for darker homes, it appears to be less suited for brightly lit environments such as offices. In terms of its keyboard, the device carries a chiclet keyboard with white backlighting. It is actually derived from Lenovo's flagship ThinkPad keyboards with a few subtle differences. Apart from that, there is a fingerprint scanner just below the right arrow key with speaker grilles sandwiching the keyboard. However, as one would expect from a laptop of this size, the Numpad is absent on this device.

In terms of connectivity, there is a single proprietary charging port, an HDMI port, a single USB Type-C port and a combo audio jack on the left side of the laptop. On the right side, there is a power button, an SD-card reader along with two USB Type-A ports. There is nothing on the rear except for the hinges and a single air vent. As for the processor, the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 features the AMD Ryzen 5 4500U processor along with the AMD Radeon Graphics as the GPU. As for its battery, the laptop has been equipped with a capacious 52Wh battery and improvements unique to Renoir chips, such as the redesigned power interface with three distinct states. This simply means that the operating system can better communicate to the Ryzen 5 exactly how much power is required for a given task. Overall, the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 is a great device to be explored, depending on the need and preference of the user.

The Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 is a decent laptop-tablet hybrid that's well-suited for work and play. The lightweight build and long battery life make it a good choice for commuting and travelling, but the display is of middling quality, and some design choices, namely the trackpad, are a little awkward.

Comment

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.


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel UHD Graphics G1 (Ice Lake 32 EU): Integrated graphics card in Intel Ice-Lake G1 SoCs based on the new Gen. 11 architecture with 32 of the 64 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). The clock rate depends on the processor model ranging from 300 MHz base to 1050 - 1100 MHz boost. The Ice-Lake chips are produced in the modern 10nm process at Intel produced.

AMD Vega 6: Integrated graphics card of the Ryzen APUs based on the Vega architecture with 6 CUs (= 384 shaders) and a clock of up to 1.500 MHz.

NVIDIA GeForce MX330: Successor of the MX230 and most likely a renamed GeForce MX250/MX150 based on the Pascal GP108 chip with 384 shaders and a 64 Bit memory bus for GDDR5.

AMD Vega 7: Integrated graphics card of the Ryzen APUs based on the Vega architecture with 7 CUs (= 448 shaders) and a clock of up to 1600 MHz.

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.

AMD Vega 5: Integrated graphics card of the Ryzen APUs based on the Vega architecture with 5 CUs (= 320 shaders) and a clock of up to 1400 MHz.

AMD Vega 8 R4000: Integrated graphics card of the Ryzen APUs based on the Vega architecture with 8 CUs (= 512 shaders) and a clock of up to 1.750 MHz.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Ice Lake:

i5-1035G1: Ice-Lake based low power quad core processor for thin and light laptops. Integrated four Sunnycove cores clocked at 1.2 - 3.7 GHz that support Hyperthreading (8 threads). Furthermore, the SoC integrates a Intel UHD Graphics G1 graphics card and Wifi 6 / Thunderbolt partly integrated. The chip is manufactured in the modern 10nm process at Intel.

i7-1065G7: Ice Lake based low power quad-core processor for thin and light laptops. The four cores clock between 1.3 - 3.9 GHz and should offer 18% more IPC (instructions per clock) than the previous generations (and therefore partly close the clock speed gap). Produced in 10nm at Intel.

i3-1005G1: Ice-Lake based low power quad core processor for thin and light laptops. Integrated two Sunnycove cores clocked at 1.2 - 3.4 GHz that support Hyperthreading (4 threads). Furthermore, the SoC integrates an entry level UHD Graphics G1 graphics card and Wifi 6 / Thunderbolt partly integrated. The chip is manufactured in the modern 10nm process at Intel.

AMD Renoir (Ryzen 4000 APU):

R5 4500U: Mobile Hexy-Core APU using six Zen 2 cores clocked at 2.3 to 4 GHz and a Vega graphics card with 6 CUs clocked at up to 1500 MHz. The CPU does not support SMT / Hyperthreading.

R7 4700U: Mobile Octa-Core APU using Zen 2 cores clocked at 2 to 4 GHz and a Vega graphics card with 7 CUs clocked at up to 1600 MHz. Compared to the faster 4800U, the 4700U offers a slightly lower boost clock speed and does not support SMT / Hyperthreading.

R3 4300U: Mobile Quad-Core APU using four Zen 2 cores clocked at 2.7 to 3.7 GHz and a Vega graphics card with 5 CUs clocked at up to 1400 MHz. The CPU does not support SMT / Hyperthreading.

Intel Comet Lake:

Celeron 5205U: Comet Lake based entry level low power dual-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced in 14nm++). The CPU cores clock at 1.9 GHz (no Turbo) without SMT/HyperThreading (2 threads). The integrated memory controller supports  LPDDR3-2133/DDR4-2400 (down from DDR4-2666 in the Core i3 and better). The TDP is rated at 15 Watt but can be reduced to 12.5 Watt by the OEM (and the CPU then running at only 800 MHz).

i5-10210U: Comet Lake based low power quad-core processor (technically identical to Whiskey Lake and still produced in 14nm++). The CPU cores can clock between 1.6 and 4.2 GHz (all 4 cores 3.9 GHz max.) with HyperThreading (8 threads). The integrated memory controller supports DDR4-2666 and using cTDP up/down the performance can be adjusted by the OEM (10 - 25 Watt possible, 15W default). Compared to the faster i5-10510U, the level 3 cache was reduced from 8 to 6 MB.

AMD Lucienne (Zen 2, Ryzen 5000):

R7 5700U: Mobile Octa-Core APU using Zen 2 cores clocked at 1.8 to 4.3 GHz and a Vega graphics card with 8 CUs clocked at up to 1900 MHz.
