Lenovo ThinkBook 14 G4 Laptop review: Solid laptop with plenty of lightweight metal

Whether studying or working, the 14-inch ThinkBook exhibited a high degree of energy efficiency and durable casing in our test. Despite its small battery, this laptop featuring a Ryzen 5 processor from the Barcelo series lasts a long time. That makes this laptop a great companion.
Teaser

Lenovo has been making ThinkBooks since 2019. These laptops fall in line with many features shared between Lenovo's IdeaPad and ThinkPad brands. Like the ThinkPads, they are superior to IdeaPads in terms of their ports, but have worse displays when compared to the models for end customers. In terms of quality, ThinkBooks are similar to entry-level ThinkPads in the E Series. This means that the Lenovo ThinkBook 14 G4 will also likely end up in various offices. The new AMD Ryzen 5 5625U ensures a highly responsive system.  

We have compared the Lenovo ThinkBook 14 G4 to other 14- and 15-inch laptops for use in offices. The Lenovo ThinkBook 15 G4 also features among the comparison devices. This slightly larger laptop is almost identical to the 14-inch version. Other devices intended for use in offices include the Dell Inspiron 14, the Dynabook Tecra A40-J-12-E and the Schenker Work 15

Casing – Aluminium for cover and base

Silver and grey are the colours used for the ThinkBook's exterior. Lenovo has kept the design appealing and played around with the structures of the surface and cover somewhat. This produces a dual-colour effect despite this being monochrome anodised aluminium. The top of the base consists of a matching lacquered plastic. An aluminium alloy has once again been used for the underside of the base. The ThinkBook hearkens back to its origins, the design being typically Lenovo.

Features – Still no USB 4 in the Barcelo Ryzen

Despite the ThinkBook 14 G4 missing a number of features when looking at its ports, you can still work with its four USB sockets, HDMI and SD card reader. You will, however, have to do without Thunderbolt or USB 4. USB 4 is only possible with the new 6000 series of AMD CPUs.

SD Card Reader

The SD card reader on this ThinkBook was capable of achieving good speeds with our reference card. However the AV PRO microSD 128 GB V60 would also be capable of faster transfer speeds.

Communication

Since previous incarnations, Realtek has also developed a Wi-Fi module with Wi-Fi 6. The Realtek RTL8852AE provided good transfer speeds in the test, but was not quite able to keep up with the values produced by laptops with Intel's AX201 chip.

Webcam

With its crisp contrasts in addition to solid performance under favourable lighting conditions, this office notebook's full HD webcam impressed us in the test. Little ambient light results in a very noisy image. A mechanical cover can also ensure privacy. The wide-angle lens' fisheye effect is striking. The camera does not support Windows Hello face authentication.

Security

In addition to the AMD Ryzen 5, a fingerprint sensor as well as a Kensington lock slot ensure security. The AMD processor supports security features such as TPM 2.0 and SecureBoot.

Maintenance

The base of the notebook can be removed quickly. A number of upgrade opportunities can be found underneath. There is a free M.2 slot here. In addition to this, the existing RAM module of the NVMe SSD can also be replaced. Almost all components have also been installed into the ThinkBook 15 G4 in this way.

Warranty

The configuration used in our test only comes with a warranty of 12 months in Germany. Various warranty options are, however, available worldwide in the Lenovo Vantage program.

Input Devices – Flat keyboard

The touchpad and the notebook's backlit keyboard work reliably. The keyboard layout here corresponds to the ISO standard. Button spacing and size are reasonable. Typing here feels very similar to the IdeaPad keyboards. Low key travel and little haptic feedback means that the keyboard may take a little getting used to. However, once you are used to it, the keyboard is fine.

The touchpad is also more at the level of that on an IdeaPad. You won't find a TrackPoint like what you may know from ThinkPads on the ThinkBook 14.

Das matte und recht helle Full-HD-Display (1920 × 1080 Pixel) des Lenovo ThinkBook 14 G4 bietet keine besonderen Features oder Auffälligkeiten. 16:9-Format, 60 Hz und eine recht geringe Farbraumabdeckung sind für einen Büro-Laptop jedoch ausreichend. 

Die Ausleuchtung des Bildschirmes ist nicht sonderlich gleichmäßig und auch der Kontrastwert ist eher gering. Aber auch hier sehen wir die Anforderungen für einen Büro-Computer erfüllt.

Calman ColorChecker detected fairly high values with regard to colour deviations. The low colour space coverage is primarily reflected in the maximum values measured. This means that the full colours red, blue and green do not fall in line with the specifications. The calibration file from the info box provides only a minor improvement in terms of the average colour deviation to a Delta E of 4.5.

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
20 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 11 ms rise
↘ 9 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. » 37 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (21.7 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
29 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 14 ms rise
↘ 15 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 32 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (34.1 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 18278 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Because the Lenovo ThinkBook 14 G4's screen is matt, its brightness of 283.4 cd/m² is usually sufficient for use outdoors. Here, however, you should expect limitations depending on your position.

The screen retains its colour regardless of the angle from which it is viewed. The laptop's perceived brightness sees only a slight decrease when increasing the angle from which it is viewed.

Performance – Slight performance increase thanks to Barcelo

The Lenovo ThinkBook 14 G4 is available with either Intel or AMD processors in a number of memory variants. Our test laptop comes with the AMD Ryzen 5 5625U and 16 GBs of RAM. Of this, 8 GBs are contained in SO-DIMM RAM. The notebook's RAM can therefore be expanded. 

The configurations are clearly adapted to suit the requirements of an office laptop. However, while the ThinkBook is impressive when it comes to office and browser applications, it can't quite keep up with other laptops with regard to games and 3D applications. 

 
 
 

Test Conditions

Most benchmarks with the ThinkBook 14 G4 were conducted with the "smart cooling" performance mode active. This balanced performance mode is available through the Lenovo Vantage program. The maximum performance mode was also activated to determine maximum power consumption and fan noise.

Processor

As a mobile processor for smaller and lighter notebooks, the AMD Ryzen 5625U in the ThinkBook 14 G4 can make full use of its performance potential. With its Zen 3 architecture, this processor from the Barcelo refresh from the start of 2022 is powerful here. This is hardly surprising, seeing as the processor in this Lenovo laptop is able to work continuously at its maximum configurable TDP of 25 watts. The laptop will maintain this performance while in maximum performance mode. With "smart cooling" activated, the processor will receive 15 watts.

With turbo power, we measured around 50 watts here. This allows the processor clock to remain above 2.3 GHz even for long periods of time and reach up to 4.3 GHz for brief periods.  

Overall, the Ryzen 5 exhibited strong performance in the generic benchmarks. In the almost identical ThinkBook 15 G4, the processor benchmarks were conducted in maximum performance mode.
