Review of Lenovo IdeaPad 5 Pro 14ITL6: sharp-looking 14-inch laptop

Small display. Big pixel count. The IdeaPad 5 Pro is not a typical office or business laptop with a variety of security features and ports, but rather a compact all-rounder. The biggest highlight of this 14-inch device is its high-resolution IPS panel with a 16:10 aspect ratio.

The IdeaPad 5 Pro is available with either AMD or Intel processors. Whilst the model 14ACN6 that we tested in 2021 has a Ryzen 5 5600U, the current model 14ITL6 features a Core i5-1135G7 with 4 instead of 6 cores alongside 16 GB of DDR4 RAM (soldered) and 512 GB of M.2 SSD (replaceable). One exciting feature is the display: it is very uncommon to find a 16:10 screen with such a high resolution of 2,880 x 1,800 in the 14-inch segment. This is especially impressive considering the fact that Lenovo promises 100% sRGB coverage and 400 cd/m² of peak brightness. We will be examining these claims later on. The IdeaPad 5 Pro 14ITL6 starts at 800 Euro (US$795).

The Lenovo laptop is competing with other 14-inch devices that are under 1,000 Euro (US$1,000) and weigh no more than 1.5 kg (3.3 lb), such as the HP Envy 14-eb0252ng and the Asus ZenBook 14 UM425U. Both devices can be found in the subsequent comparison tables.

Display

Unlike the AMD variant, the Intel-based device in this review doesn't offer a 2.2K touch screen (2,240 x 1,400 pixels). Instead, it opts for an even sharper display without touch support that is fairly matt and thus significantly less reflective. The 2,880 x 1,800 resolution is immensely high for a 14-inch laptop; some might even say that it is too high.

* ... smaller is better

Pixel density aside, we are mostly impressed with the values we measured from the 16:10 screen. Although the screen didn't manage to reach the specified maximum brightness of 400 cd/m², the IdeaPad 5 Pro still pulls ahead of most 14-inch laptops with an average peak brightness 372 cd/m² and clearly beats its touch-enabled counterpart (only 302 cd/m²). The non-touch version is also markedly better in terms of response times (13 to 29 ms instead of 35 to 45 ms).

Meanwhile, the differences in contrast are within reasonable limits. Due to the display's higher black level (0.3 vs. 0.22 cd/m²), the Intel version trails somewhat behind the AMD variant. That said, a contrast ratio of 1,343:1 is still a respectable figure for an IPS display. We especially want to compliment the high colour accuracy: right out of the box, the display's colour reproduction is already within the ideal range. We can also hardly find any fault with its colour coverage. At 99% of sRGB, 75% of AdobeRGB and 74% of P3, the screen should be able to satisfy most users.

As expected from IPS panels, the display has a good viewing angle. Owing to the relatively high maximum brightness, it is feasible to use the laptop outdoors, as long as the sun is not too intense or shining directly on the screen.

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
13.1 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 4.5 ms rise
↘ 8.6 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. » 24 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (22.7 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
29.4 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 13.6 ms rise
↘ 15.8 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 0.25 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 28 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than 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 19590 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Performance

Featuring 16 GB of RAM, an NVMe SSD and a quad-core processor, the IdeaPad 5 Pro is in the lower mid-range amongst all-round laptops. It struggles particularly with 3D applications because it lacks a dedicated graphics card and the integrated Iris Xe Graphics G7 with 80 EUs runs out of steam quickly.

Test conditions

The preinstalled Lenovo Vantage software gives users the ability to adjust and change the system in several ways. Under the menu item "Power and performance" (see screenshot), users are able to choose from three profiles. Our tests were carried out in "Intelligent Cooling" mode, which is active by default. Those who want more power can enable "Performance" mode, whilst "Battery Saver" mode is meant for users who want their device to be quieter and last longer on the go.

Processor

The Core i5-1135G7 is an exceptionally popular four-core model from Intel's Tiger Lake range. It is particularly well suited to thin and light laptops and can run up to eight threads in parallel using Hyper-Threading. However, the Intel chip struggles a lot to compete against the AMD Ryzen 5 5600U. Based on our performance rating, the Ryzen 5 is overall around 30% faster – this is unsurprising considering that the i5-1135G7 has to make do with fewer cores. We used Cinebench R15 to assess how the system behaves under longer loads and didn't observe any abnormalities other than some fairly small fluctuations in performance.

DPC latency

The IdeaPad 5 Pro 14ITL6 didn't perform as well in our latency test. LatencyMon indicated that the laptop has problems with processing audio and video contents in real time. However, this flaw is something that affects many other laptops.

Mass storage

Lenovo put a 512 GB Western Digital SN730 in the device. Even though this SSD is easily able to keep pace with SK Hynix and Toshiba drives, it started showing rather large fluctuations in performance after running our Diskspd continuous test for a while. This shouldn't happen in an ideal situation.

Graphics card

Whilst the version of Iris Xe Graphics G7 with 96 EUs (found on some higher-end Tiger Lake models) may be good enough for casual gamers, the 80-EU variant on the Core i5-1135G7 doesn't exactly bring great performance to the table. In our series of GPU tests, both RX Vega 7 and RX Vega 8 from AMD delivered slightly more performance.

Gaming performance

The lacklustre graphics performance became especially apparent during our gaming tests. Older titles were playable, but most of them couldn't run in their native resolution (Full HD at most) or at (very) high settings. Current titles often didn't run at smooth frame rates (e.g. Tiny Tina's Wonderlands & The Quarry) regardless of the resolution and detail level selected. But then again, the IdeaPad 5 Pro also wasn't designed to be a gaming device.

As expected, there weren't any performance dips or similar during the 60-minute test using The Witcher 3.
