Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold G1-20RL000GGE

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold Review: More Is Less
Source: MrMobile English
Ever since I was six years old and watching Inspector Gadget, I’ve longed for a proper “computer book” – and the Lenovo X1 Fold gets closer to that dream than I ever thought possible. Its large folding display is the most rugged and crease-free I’ve ever used, and it works together with a cleverly designed wireless keyboard companion and beautiful leather shell to deliver a laptop experience like no other. Fully deployed, the Lenovo X1 Fold rests on its built-in kickstand to serve as a 13.3” laptop; or, fold the screen in half and slap on the magnetic keyboard for a more compact 7” netbook. Use it in easel mode as a stylus-equipped tablet; and when it’s time to pack it in for the day, it collapses into a footprint no bigger than a hardback novel.

Instead, you could get a similarly spec'd iPad Pro with Magic Keyboard and 2nd Gen Apple Pencil for $1,577, to get both a great tablet and laptop experience. And those who want a great Windows machine should just get the tried and true XPS 13, which is only $1,225 when similarly configured as the X1 Fold. Neither of those laptops have folding displays, but after writing this review, we know when to fold 'em, and when to walk away.

60% Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Fold Review: Fun to fold, frustrating to use
Source: Mobile Syrup English
Lenovo’s X1 Fold is an excellent first attempt, but I think most people would be better off waiting for a second generation Fold. In so many ways, the X1 Fold feels like the future. It’s versatile, you can bend and manipulate it to adapt to nearly any workflow. And yet, when I try to use it, it grinds my workflow to a crawl.

The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold is a remarkable and gorgeous innovation, but its very underwhelming performance and battery life makes it hard to recommend for the price.

60% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold review: The first foldable PC is a winner, but not for the price
Source: Neowin English
The Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold has just so many flaws, but boy do I love it. When I started using it, I immediately felt like this could be something great. It's just a delight. But then the bugs start to kick in. I started getting annoyed by the tiny keyboard, and a big frustration for me was that it didn't have cellular.

55% Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Fold Review: A Folding Screen Filled With Potential
Source: The Verge English
The key word there is “yet.” Because with all that being said, I can’t wait for the second generation. Samsung’s first foldable phones were riddled with issues — but just over a year and several iterations later, the company is selling a folding device that’s very usable (albeit pretty expensive). I’m sure that’s going to be the case with foldable laptops as well. Lenovo has a groundbreaking idea, with a strong foundation to build on. I really hope it’s able to patch the Fold’s glitches without compromising on the components that are already exceptional. That would be a breathtaking device, one that would earn my unambiguous recommendation.

Lenovo Thinkpad X1 Fold review: a giant folding tablet held back by Windows
Source: Engadget English
We first got a look at Lenovo's Thinkpad X1 Fold last CES, and it certainly caught our attention. A giant tablet that folds in the middle like a book, and can be propped up with a kickstand, or folded in half and paired with a keyboard to transform it into a mini laptop. The technology on display is impressive, but the device is held back by it's software. It runs windows, which has always had problems as a tablet OS. It looks like the future, but buggy software, coupled with the sky-high price tag (starting over $2500), make it hard to recommend the X1 Fold.

64% ThinkPad X1 Fold review: Lenovo's foldable PC is nowhere near ready
Source: Engadget English
The ThinkPad X1 Fold is an impressive piece of technology that sorely needs better execution. It’s laudable that Lenovo was able to make a 13.3-inch OLED tablet that can bend, but on its own the $2,600 Fold is a seriously expensive Windows tablet. Throw in the $230 keyboard that fits neatly between the screen’s two halves for a faux laptop mode and you get a neat mini machine that’s only good for quick emails and tweets. But few, if any, people should spend nearly $3,000 to buy the X1 Fold when any Surface tablet would serve you far better.

60% Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold review: The world's first foldable PC
Source: Laptop Mag English
Given these gripes, the ThinkPad X1 Fold isn't practical for most people. Rather, it's a device I can see CEOs flaunting in board meetings. And the few people who do buy this PC will probably really enjoy using it. Throughout my time with the X1 Fold, I struggled to answer the question: "Does this even work as a concept?" Well, the growing dread I feel about having to ship this back to Lenovo says a lot, and I'm eager to see what comes next.

This was always going to be a tough product to judge. I really like having the ThinkPad X1 Fold around. Its small form factor doesn't take up much space and the gorgeous OLED panel beautifully showcased my favorite shows and movies. Also, the excellent build quality, crafted with a mix of high-end materials, earns Lenovo some hearty applause.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold review – the first foldable laptop has a lot to prove
Source: Laptop Media English
You don’t get to see such machines often. Before we wrap this review up, we have to say that it is a remarkable device, and we want to praise Lenovo for having the balls to make it. However, with every Gen 1 product, you should expect some minor issues that need taking care of. The first one here is the performance. This is not a powerhouse. You won’t be able to edit your videos or play the latest AAA titles. Accept it. However, you can do a ton more stuff. By the way, we had an early sample from Lenovo, so the performance might be better on a retail unit.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold Review - Folding Screen PC

Lisa Gade reviews the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Fold, the first Windows 10 tablet / convertible laptop with a flexible OLED display. The X1 Fold has a 13.3” OLED display with a 4:3 aspect ratio that can fold to a book-like posture or it can be used like a chassis laptop thanks to Lenovo’s magnetically attached wireless keyboard. The tablet also works with the Lenovo Mod Pen, which is a first for active pens on flexible displays. The Fold has an Intel Lakefield 5-core processor, 8GB RAM and your choice of 256GB-1TB PCIe SSD storage. It has a Windows Hello IR camera, 5MP front camera and is wrapped in a leather cover that doubles as a kickstand.

Intel UHD Graphics G7 (Lakefield GT2 64 EU): Integrated graphics card in Intel Lakefield G7 SoCs based on the new Gen. 11 architecture with 64 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). Similar to the Iris Plus G7 in Ice Lake CPUs but with a much lower clock speed of only 200 - 500 MHz and therefore only performing on a level with the Intel UHD Graphics 620. The Lakefield chips are produced in the modern 10nm process at Intel produced.

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

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


i5-L16G7: The Core i5-L16G7 is a SoC with 5 processor cores based on the Lakefield architecture. It uses one fast Sunny Cove core (known from Ice Lake CPUs) with up to 3 GHz and 4 small Tremont cores (Atom / Celeron). The CPU does not support HyperThreading / SMT. The rest of the SoC is similar to the Ice Lake chips, like the Gen 11 graphics card with 64 EUs (Iris Plus G7). The SoC is manufactured in 10nm.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

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.

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.
