Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5i 14IAU7 convertible review: Core i5-1235U done right

High performance for cheap. If you want to maximize performance while minimizing the damage done to your wallet, then the new IdeaPad Flex 5i 14 may be worthwhile. Its 12th gen Core i5 CPU runs faster than most 11th gen Core i7 options while costing hundreds of dollars less.

The 2022 Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5i 14IAU7 succeeds the 2021 IdeaPad Flex 5 14 by refreshing both the internal and external hardware for what should be faster performance and a cleaner visual design. It's a budget consumer convertible to contrast Lenovo's more expensive prosumer Yoga series, SMB ThinkBook series, or professional ThinkPad series.

Configurations range from the 12th gen Core i3-1215U to the i5-1235U or i7-1255U CPU with 8 to 16 GB of LPDDR4x RAM. All options come with the same 16:10 1200p IPS touchscreen and no discrete graphics. Our unit in review is the middle-range Core i5 option retailing for about $700 to $800 USD.

Competitors in this space include other budget-to-midrange 14-inch convertibles like the Dell Inspiron 14 7420 2-in-1, HP Pavilion x360 14, Asus VivoBook Flip 14, or the Acer Spin 3 SP314.

Case

The visual changes between the 2021 and 2022 models may appear minor at first glance because they sport the same drab gray colors, but there are several differences upon closer inspection. The rear corners are now rounder, the bottom ventilation grilles are larger, and the hinges have been completely redesigned. The latter in particular addresses the weak hinges we mentioned on the 2021 model for a firmer display that can hold its place better at more angles.

Aside from the changes above, chassis rigidity is about the same as before. The lid is quite rigid due to its thickness and edge-to-edge glass reinforcement, but the base warps more easily when applying pressure down its keyboard center which is common on other budget models like the HP Pavilion or Asus Vivobook.

Users expecting the new design to be smaller and lighter than the outgoing model may be disappointed as the new model weighs about the same while being longer in length but shorter in width and height. Even so, the system still has a smaller footprint than the pricier Yoga 9 14. Overall dimensions are almost identical to the competing Dell Inspiron 14 7420 2-in-1.

Connectivity — Thunderbolt 4 Support

Port options remain identical to the 2021 model. This is one of the few inexpensive convertibles to support Thunderbolt 4 as some competing models like the Dell Inspiron 14 7420 2-in-1 don't support Thunderbolt at all.

Keep in mind that the HDMI port is 1.4a only and so any external 4K monitors at 60 Hz should be connected via USB-C DP instead.

We would love to see the proprietary barrel AC adapter port dropped on future models in favor of two USB-C ports. Most other laptops have already made the transition to USB-C charging only including the aforementioned Dell.

SD Card Reader

Transfer rates from the integrated card reader are decent considering the price point. Moving 1 GB of pictures from our UHS-II test card to desktop takes about 13 seconds compares to 36 seconds on the Dell Inspiron 14 7420 2-in-1 or 6 to 8 seconds on the more expensive Dell XPS 15.

Communication

Configurations include Wi-Fi 5 or Wi-Fi 6 with no Wi-Fi 6E option likely to save on costs. Wireless performance is nonetheless excellent and stable when paired to our Asus AXE11000 router.

Accessories and Warranty

There are no extras in the box beyond the AC adapter and paperwork. An active pen is optional. The usual one-year limited warranty applies if purchased in the US.

Input Devices — Bigger Clickpad

Keyboard

Much like what we discovered on the 2021 model, the backlit keyboard keys on the 2022 model offer crisper feedback than on the Asus Vivobook Flip 14 but with overall shallower travel than on the more expensive HP Envy or ThinkPad series. Feedback on the Space key in particular can feel too weak for users who might be accustomed to desktop keyboards or high-end business-centric laptops. If you've typed on an IdeaPad laptop in the past, then you'll know what to expect here as Lenovo hasn't made any huge changes to their keyboards for years.

Touchpad

The clickpad is larger than the one on the 2021 model (12 x 7.5 cm vs. 10.5 x 7 cm) for roomier cursor control and multi-touch inputs. Unfortunately, clicking on the clickpad hasn't gotten any better as feedback is fairly weak and shallow for an unsatisfying feel despite the sharp auditory click. Simple actions like drag-and-dropping or double-clicking become frustrating to perform. We recommend using an actual mouse or the touchscreen whenever possible.

Display — Limited Colors

Most display attributes remain the same as on the 2021 IdeaPad Flex 5 14ALC05 even though our newer model utilizes a different underlying panel. In particular, both color space and response times are still poor or average at best which is unfortunately par for the course when it comes to budget 14-inch convertibles. Users are encouraged to upgrade to the Lenovo Yoga, Dell XPS, HP Spectre, Asus Zenbook, or MSI Summit series if brighter and deeper colors are priorities.

X-Rite colorimeter results show a decently calibrated display out of the box albeit with a color temperature that's slightly on the cool side. Calibrating the panel ourselves would improve deltaE values across the board, but deeply saturated colors remain inaccurate due to the narrow color space mentioned above.

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
22 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 13.2 ms rise
↘ 8.8 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. » 36 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (22.7 ms).

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. » 43 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (35.9 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 19601 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The display is brighter than on last year's IdeaPad Flex 5 14 by about 50 percent for better visibility outdoors. However, it's still not bright enough to overcome glare or be comfortable for viewing under most outdoor conditions.

Performance — Faster Than Expected

 

Testing Conditions

We set our unit to Extreme Performance mode and Performance mode via Lenovo Vantage and Windows, respectively, prior to running any benchmarks below. It's highly recommend that users become familiar with the pre-installed Vantage software as key OEM updates, performance features, warranty claims, and more can all be found here. A few screenshots of Vantage below show how deep the customizations allow.

Processor

The Vaio FE14 and Gateway Ultra Slim 14 each left us feeling bitter about the underperforming Core i5-1235U. To our surprise, however, this same CPU in the Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5i 14 is significantly faster to the point where it can handily outperform most laptops running on 11th gen Core i7 U-series CPUs or older. Raw multi-thread performance is a whopping 60 to 75 percent faster than on the Vaio FE14 even after accounting for any performance throttling.

Performance sustainability could be better nonetheless. When running CineBench R15 xT in a loop, scores would dip by 22 percent over time which is a slightly steeper fall than on most other U-series-powered laptops.

There are unfortunately no Core P-series CPUs to choose from. For such an option, Lenovo wants users to consider the more expensive Yoga 9 14 series instead.

DPC Latency

LatencyMon reveals DPC issues when opening multiple browser tabs of our homepage. 4K video playback at 60 FPS is imperfect as well with 15 dropped frames during out minute-long test video. Lenovo could certainly reduce the amount of preinstalled bloatware to limit interrupting background activity.

Storage Devices — PCIe4 Support

Our unit comes with the midrange Samsung MZAL4512HBLU SSD which is appropriate on a budget-midrange convertible like our IdeaPad Flex. Unfortunately, the drive here on our unit would exhibit throttling likely due to the thermal limitations. Running DiskSpd in a loop would show excellent transfer rates of around 3300 MB/s during the start of the test before throttling to only 1100 MB/s as shown by our graph below.
