60% Lenovo Flex 5 (14-inch) Review
Source: Laptop Mag English
The 14-inch Lenovo Flex 5 is a powerful, attractive 2-in-1 that falls short with a dim display and a shallow keyboard. It had the potential to be great, but those cut corners make the Flex 5 only good at best.

85% Lenovo Flex 5 14 review: AMD Ryzen 4000 is a game-changer
Source: Neowin English
Sure, the Flex 5 isn't perfect. The display isn't nearly as bright as I'd like, although it's fine for regular indoor use. Also, the pen storage design is just not good. I don't want to call it terrible because there are worse ways of doing it, but it's annoying. You have to remove the pen just to press the power button or to plug in a peripheral. And the thing is, the pen is docked exactly when I want to plug in a peripheral, when I'm at my desk.

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 5G Review: Incredible Battery Life With Caveats
Source: Hot Hardware English
Generally speaking, laptops are a series of trade-offs. Some folks might be willing to compromise on battery life to get more outright performance, or would be happy to tether a traditional laptop to their phone as an internet hotspot. For those folks, there are other options. However, for those who value incredible battery life and 5G connectivity without the need for a hotspot or tethering above all other considerations, there's a short list of devices out there that can deliver and it starts with the Lenovo Flex 5G. It's for this demographic and in that situation that we're proclaiming this system HotHardware Approved. The Lenovo Flex 5G is an excellent example of what Qualcomm's Snapdragon 8cx always-connected PC platform has to offer.

Source: PC World English
If you absolutely, positively need a 5G laptop this very second, by all means, head on down to your local Verizon store and sign up for the Lenovo Flex 5G. It delivers the goods once it connects to a 5G signal (provided you can find one), it delivers all-day-plus battery, and it boasts a solid (if heavy) design with a bright full-HD display and plenty of biometrics. But the Flex 5G’s Snapdragon 8cx processor constrains its productivity performance. Given the army of competing 5G laptops that’s about to arrive, our instinct would be to wait on this one.

80% Lenovo Flex 5G review: Insane battery life at a cost
Source: Android Authority English
The Lenovo Flex 5G is a device hindered by compromises. The laptop hardware itself is fine, but not as spiffy or appealing as a $1,499 laptop should be. Lenovo’s display is great inside, but falters outdoors due to the glossy glass. While the keyboard is excellent, and augmented by truly useful shortcut keys, the touchpad is average and the ports are limited. Performance is where the Flex 5G really shines. The Snapdragon 8cx chewed through all my productivity apps with ease, and battery life is absolutely out of this world. 5G speeds were excellent, though Verizon’s signal is hardly ubiquitous. This performance, however, is offset by the lack of support for 64-bit x86 apps.

70% Lenovo Flex 5G review: The best Windows on ARM PC, but the 5G tax is way too much
Source: Neowin English
All-in-all, this is a really great PC, with a pretty 1080p display, a nice and quiet keyboard, and cellular connectivity. It's just a mid-range laptop with flagship pricing, and that couldn't be more evident than by the fact that it doesn't ship with a pen, or that you can't configure it with more than 8GB RAM. I love Windows on ARM PCs for a lot of reasons, so it pains me to say this, but I really don't feel like I can recommend the Flex 5G.

Lenovo Flex 5G review: 5G in a laptop, if you can find a signal
Source: Engadget English
Lenovo's Flex 5G is equipped with Qualcomm's 8cx processor, a mobile chip with 5G connectivity. The 8cx is theoretically capable of great performance, but we found the Flex 5G painfully slow. It's also an ARM processor, meaning it has limited compatibility with many programs, some of our favorite benchmarks wouldn't even run. The bright spots are excellent battery life, a good keyboard, and that 5G antenna, though we were never actually able to find a 5G signal.

Lenovo Flex 5G Review: The First 5G Laptop
Source: MrMobile English
It’s thin; it’s light … and it’s always connected to the internet. By now, the formula for laptops like the Lenovo Flex 5G is pretty well established: instead of a chip from Intel or AMD, at its core sits an ARM-based Snapdragon 8cx that has much more in common with smartphone silicon. Instead of being built for power, it’s built to wake up quickly, use battery power sparingly, and maintain a constant connection to the web.

60% Lenovo’s Flex 5G proves it’s too early to buy a 5G laptop
Source: The Verge English
There will be better 5G laptops in the future, but like the state of 5G in general, we’re not there yet. And it’s not clear when more options that support 5G will arrive, be cheaper, easier to find, or more convenient to use. For right now, Lenovo’s Flex 5G is an incredibly safe bet as a first-generation device. Compared to what the first round of 5G-enabled phones looked like, there’s not much about the design that sets it apart from other laptops. And until support for ARM processors improves drastically, the fast but fleeting 5G service that’s available currently through Verizon isn’t appealing enough to make this investment — or the monthly cost for Verizon’s 5G — worthwhile.

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.

79.2% Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 14 Ryzen 7 Review: Fastest 14-inch Convertible In The Market | Notebookcheck
As if the mobile Ryzen 4000 series wasn't already impressive, the mobile Ryzen 5000 series kicks it up another notch for even higher performance-per-dollar to outclass every other 14-inch convertible currently available.
85% Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 14 review (2021 Flex 5 14ALC05 model, Ryzen 7 5700U)
Source: Ultrabook Review English
With the AMD Ryzen 5000 hardware inside, the Flex 5 is one of the most powerful 14-inch budget laptops you can get right now. It's also a convertible and doesn't compromise on the build quality, inputs, audio, IO, or battery life, but it does come with one major deal-breaker: a dim and washed-out display with a 60% sRGB panel. That's just not for me and I'd rather pay extra or even sacrifice on the performance just to get a usable display instead. You, however, might feel otherwise, and if that's the case, you'll hardly find a better value laptop in this class. My entire experience with this notebook is documented down below.

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.

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.

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.

Qualcomm Adreno 680: Integrated graphics card in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx SoC for Windows laptops. According to Qualcomm 2x faster than the previous Adreno 630 in the Snapdragon 850 for Windows PCs with a 60% improved efficiency (thanks to the 7nm process).

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.

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 Kaby Lake:

i7-7500U: Kaby-Lake based SoC with two CPU cores clocked at 2.7 to 3.5 GHz, HyperThreading and manufactured with an improved 14nm process.

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 4.1 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.

Qualcomm Snapdragon:

SD 8cx: ARM based SoC for Windows laptops that is manufactured in 7 nm LPP at TSMC. Integrates 4x Kryo 495 Gold cores (Cortex-A76) for performance and 4x Kryo 495 Silver (Cortex-A55) for efficiency. Furthermore offers an X24 LTE modem (2GBits download), ac-WiFi and a dual-channel 32-Bit 1866 MHz LPDDR4x memory controller.

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.

AMD Lucienne (Zen 2, Ryzen 5000):

R5 5500U: Mobile six core APU using Zen 2 cores clocked at 2.1 to 4 GHz and a Vega graphics card with 7 CUs clocked at up to 1800 MHz. Similar to the old Ryzen 5 4500U.

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.
