Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold 16 laptop review: Unfolding the future

A glimpse into the foldable tablet future. The 2021 ThinkPad X1 Fold 13 felt like an early experiment with a lot of rough edges and performance limitations. Fast-forward a few years and Lenovo's second attempt at a foldable ThinkPad feels much more refined and competitive against traditional clamshell laptops.

Lenovo was one of the first major manufacturers to launch a foldable laptop with the 13-inch 2021 ThinkPad X1 Fold 13. While its cool factor was undeniable, its limited performance and ergonomics made the system feel more experimental than refined. For 2024, Lenovo took everything they learned about the ThinkPad X1 Fold 13 to create the even larger 16-inch 4:3 ThinkPad X1 Fold 16.

Our review configuration comes equipped with the Core 7-1250U, but other SKUs are available with Core i7-1260U vPro and WWAN to appeal to larger businesses. All configurations utilize the same eye-catching 16.3-inch 2560 x 2024 foldable touchscreen.

Direct competitors to the ThinkPad X1 Fold 16 include the Asus Zenbook 17 Fold and HP Spectre Foldable 17. It can also be considered as an alternative to the Microsoft Surface Pro series.

Case — Putting The Book In ThinkBook

The chassis retains the black and gray color scheme of the 2021 model but with added woven fabric for a more professional and "executive" feel. Most notably, there is no more unsightly gap between the screen when in the "closed book" position which contributes to the flatter and cleaner design.

Chassis rigidity is also excellent. There is almost no visible flexing when applying pressure on the back or touchscreen or when attempting to twist the unit from its corners. We can notice a bit of audible creaking when doing so, but it's minor enough to not be worrisome. Needless to say, both the visual design and material rigidity are vastly improved over the original.

Certain aspects could still be better. Firstly, opening the tablet is more difficult than it needs to be as there is no grip along the smooth edges. And secondly, the maximum angle of the hinges is closer to 178 or 179 degrees instead of the full 180 degrees. It sounds small, but it's a big enough limitation to make the crease down the center more noticeable during use.

When folded open, the Lenovo becomes as thin as a traditional tablet albeit much larger and a fair bit heavier at 1.3 kg. As a Windows device, however, the included Bluetooth keyboard is vital for operability since the OS isn't as optimized for touch as Android or iOS. Thus, the combined weight of the tablet, keyboard, and kickstand is actually just as heavy as a full-fledged laptop like the Dell XPS 15.

By itself, the tablet portion is about 200 g lighter than the Zenbook 17 Fold and also noticeably smaller and thinner. Even so, it's not as travel-friendly as most will want to bring along the separate keyboard and kickstand as well.

Connectivity

There are three USB-C ports on the Lenovo compared to only two on the Zenbook 17 Fold. In return, however, the Lenovo lacks a 3.5 mm audio jack which might annoy some users. We nonetheless appreciate that there is one USB-C port on each side of the tablet to accommodate the various modes and viewing angles of the foldable design.

Keep in mind that only two of the three USB-C ports are compatible with Thunderbolt 4 devices, but any port can be used for charging the device or for external displays.

The wireless keyboard has a USB-C port as well albeit only for charging purposes.

Communication

The model ships with an Intel AX211 as standard for up to Wi-Fi 6E support whereas the 2021 model was limited to Wi-Fi 6. We experienced steady performance and reliability when paired to our Asus AXE11000 test router.

WWAN SKUs include a nano-SIM slot for 4G support.

Webcam

The model sports a 5 MP webcam with IR for Windows Hello support similar to the original 2021 version. There is still no webcam shutter, however, which is an odd omission for such an expensive product.

Maintenance

Like most tablets and especially foldables, the ThinkPad X1 Fold 16 is not designed to be easily serviceable by the end user. RAM upgrades are not possible and replacing the SSD is not recommended for risk of voiding the warranty.

Accessories And Warranty

The retail box includes a Lenovo Precision Pen 2, magnetized Bluetooth keyboard, and a magnetized back cover that doubles as a stand. The keyboard and stand in particular are vital for the usability of the model and so we're glad to see them included as standard instead of as optional accessories.

The standard one-year limited warranty applies if purchased in the US.

Input Devices — A Bit Clunky In Practice

Keyboard

The layout and size of the backlit keyboard keys resemble the keyboard on the ThinkPad T14s. Key feedback and travel, however, feel lighter and closer to an IdeaPad keyboard than a traditional ThinkPad keyboard. Thus, if you're accustomed to typing on a ThinkPad, you might find the keys here to be a bit softer than usual.

The keyboard can also be used on other PCs via USB and so it is not exclusively tied to the ThinkPad X1 Fold.

Touchpad

While the keyboard is more comfortable than expected, the opposite is true for the clickpad. Its small size (11 x 5 cm) doesn't pair well with the large 4:3 screen and so multi-touch inputs feel very cramped. Furthermore, feedback when clicking is spongy and extremely light which makes for an unsatisfying experience. It's clear that Lenovo expects you to have a mouse ready or to use the touchscreen whenever possible instead of the tiny clickpad.

Display — The Star Of The Show

Sharp OLED subpixels from the glossy overlay

The 60 Hz display is a Sharp LJ163B1JX01 OLED panel currently found on no other laptop in our database at the time of writing. The high quality panel covers DCI-P3 in its entirely alongside the usual OLED benefits such as perfect black levels and fast response times. Unlike on most other OLED panels, however, the one here lacks a glass layer and so it is both less resilient to damage and more bumpy when using the included stylus.

The large 16.3-inch size and spacious 4:3 aspect ratio are highlights of the foldable touchscreen. It is nonetheless falling a bit behind when it comes to refresh rates as laptops like the Asus VivoBook Pro 16 are already shipping with 120 Hz OLED options.

HDR600 is supported to make the ThinkPad Z1 Fold 16 an excellent multimedia player in tablet mode. If Windows HDR is disabled, then regular SDR content will be limited to around 400 nits.

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
1.04 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.44 ms rise
↘ 0.6 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 2 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.5 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
0.99 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 0.5 ms rise

The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 1 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (33.7 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 detected 240.6 Hz ≤ 100 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 240.6 Hz (worst case, e.g., utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 100 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 240.6 Hz is relatively low, so sensitive users will likely notice flickering and experience eyestrain at the stated brightness setting and below.

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17909 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Pulse-width modulation or flickering is present at 240 Hz on all brightness levels much like on the Zenbook 17 Fold.

Outdoor visibility is decent under shade but subpar if under brighter conditions or direct sunlight. At 400 nits, the display is about 30 percent dimmer than the display of the iPad Pro 11. Glare is almost always present.

OLED viewing angles have always been very wide, but they are put to the test on the ThinkPad X1 Fold. More specifically, the bottom half of the screen when in laptop mode suffers from noticeable brightness and color degradation since it is at a much wider angle relative to the user's eyes. The differences aren't enough to make texts or webpages unreadable, but you'll want to keep color-sensitive content like image editors and video on the top half of the screen for the most accurate colors.

Processor

A major criticism about the older 13-inch model was its extraordinarily slow 7 W Core i5-L16G7 CPU. Lenovo has thankfully heard the complaints and has outfitted the 16-inch version with a 9 W U-series CPU instead. Despite this, the Core i7-1250U here is already two generations behind and it hasn't aged very well when compared to even midrange Ryzen CPUs like the Ryzen 5 7530U. It's certainly faster than the Core i5-L16G7 by very wide margins, but it's nowhere near as fast as most traditional 15-inch or 16-inch laptops and it still lags behind the Microsoft Surface Pro 9.

The passively-cooled approach also impacts performance. When running CineBench R15 xT in a loop, for example, our initial score of 1085 points would fall to 820 points after 2 to 3 loops to represent a performance drop of 25 percent over time. This shows that the ThinkPad X1 Fold 16 is best at short bursts as longer and more demanding loads might begin to throttle the CPU.

System Performance

PCMark results are almost 2.5x higher on average when compared to the 13-inch model to represent a significant performance upgrade. The delta is wide enough that users can feel the difference in speed when simply navigating through Windows, launching applications, or switching between browser tabs. The overall user experience is therefore closer to a regular laptop and much smoother for multitaskers than the original 13-inch model ever was.
