ASUS ZenBook 13 UX325EA-DH51 Review And Specification

 

ASUS ZenBook 13 UX325EA-DH51 Review And Specification

With the most recent 11th generation processors and a full HD OLED panel for stunning, brilliant colors and good CPU performance, our favorite Asus ZenBook 13 is back for 2021. The UX325EA-DH51 device we're examining has Windows 11 pre-installed, but other than that, it's identical to the Asus UX325EA-DS51 from last year, which ran Windows 10.

Again, the AMD Ryzen 5000 variation of the same device with a Radeon graphics card makes it a superior alternative over the Intel Iris Plus option; both models support Thunderbolt 4. However, the ZenBook 13's lack of a headphone connector prevents it from being genuinely outstanding.

Even if it is one of the greatest Ultrabooks currently available, that doesn't imply it isn't. The Asus ZenBook 13 UX325EA is one of the best-looking ultrabooks and can easily compete with the Dell XPS 13 and Apple MacBook Air (M1, 2020), but it costs far less than either of its rivals due to its attractive design, lightweight frame, and 400-nit OLED display. It is also far lighter than the two of them, falling short only of the lightest notebooks, such as the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Nano.

Design

ASUS ZenBook 13 UX325EA-DH51 Design

Unquestionably, the Asus ZenBook 13's design is one of its key distinguishing characteristics. An Ultrabook designed by Asus that is extremely thin and light weighs just 2.51 pounds and measures 0.55 inches. The Asus logo is emblazoned off-center on the front of the aluminum chassis, radiating outward in a stylish brushed metal pattern. It's a work of art that you can proudly display in public.

An Ultrabook has a great range of ports, including two USB Type-C, one USB Type-A, an HDMI 2.0 output connector, and a microSD card slot. You'll see that there is no headphone jack, which, in all honesty, we would have preferred to have had instead of a microSD card slot.

Display

When watching movies, the ZenBook 13's display is vivid with fine detail. Despite Windows 11's strong touch capabilities, which are essential for everyday computing chores like web browsing and program window minimization, the Asus ZenBook 13's lack of a touch-enabled screen is still acceptable. A 4K display option is also absent from the ZenBook 13.

Full-HD (1,920 by 1,080 pixels) LED-backlit panels are the sole displays offered in the Asus ZenBook 13 UX325EA-DH51 series, and they can be set to either 400 nits or 300 nits of brightness. If you don't want to sacrifice brightness for battery life, the 300-nit backlight might be a better option. Our review item has the brighter version, which we highly suggest.
An HD (720p) webcam with IR sensors that supports Windows Hello and face recognition logins is located directly above the display. Even with bright interior lighting conditions, the video quality is average and the picture is little noisy.

Keyboard and Touchpad'

ASUS ZenBook 13 UX325EA-DH51 Keyboard

Although some users may find the keyboard layout overly crowded for a 13-inch laptop, the edge-to-edge keyboard is comfortable enough for regular usage. Regarding the touchpad, it is adequate but not as comfortable or snappy as the one on the XPS 13. Even yet, we enjoy the tapping experience because the touchpad can be turned into a calculator with fictitious lighted buttons.

Contrast that, though, with the distinctive ScreenPad found on select high-end ZenBook models. The Apple Touch Bar is a feature that is a must-have, whereas the ScreenPad combines a touchpad with a secondary touch screen.

However, one feature that jumps out is the ErgoLift design, which raises the keyboard toward you as the screen is fully extended, making typing more comfortable than it otherwise would be.

 A Battery's Life

The company's Project Athena initiative's second phase, Intel Evo, includes the 11th Gen CPUs. Evo has a number of specifications that laptops must meet in order to be certified by Intel. For 1080p devices, one of those is a battery life of at least 9 hours.

With 13 hours 41 minutes of surfing over Wi-Fi at 150 nits of brightness, the ZenBook 13 UX325EA outperforms those predictions. That is significantly better than its main rival, the Acer Swift 3 (11:24), and almost three hours longer than the 10:02 premium laptop average, while the MacBook Air leads the group with over 17 hours on a single charge.
