Asus VivoBook S510 review: Weak battery life hobbles this capable ultralight

 

The Asus VivoBook S510 impresses with its looks, feel, and agility with day-to-day office tasks, but it falls painfully short in a key area: battery life.

Thin and light shell for a 15.6-inch ultrabook ; Built-in fingerprint reader ; Above-average speakers

Limited display brightness ; Poor battery life

The $799 VivoBook S510 looks enticing, given its 15-inch display, peppy productivity and solid selection of ports, all crammed into a sleek 3.7-pound shell. Unfortunately, the S510's weak battery life means you'll be searching for a power socket much...

Asus VivoBook S15 laptop looks good, weighs less

 

The $800 S15 base model is very mainstream on the inside, but if you're looking for a big screen and less weight, it's worth a look.

The Asus VivoBook S15 puts a big 15.6-inch screen in an ultraportable body starting at a reasonable price. It has a spacious backlit keyboard, a responsive precision touchpad with a built-in fingerprint reader and nice-sounding stereo speakers. It's...

Battery life is brief compared with its competitors.

The Asus VivoBook S15 makes a good coffee shop laptop for those who want a bigger screen. Just make sure to pick a table near an outlet.

Asus VivoBook S15 S510UQ (i5-7200U, 940MX) Laptop Review

 

The Unfinished. Asus' multimedia-office newcomer compels with its elegant design and a particularly light and compact case, but can hardly keep up in the gaming arena with its GeForce 940MX. Despite many good attributes, we cannot give a purchase...

many variants to choose from ; light, compact, thin ; premium design ; flawless workmanship ; security features available ; good touchpad ; very good contrast ratio ; subpar SSD ; quiet ; decent sound system ; battery saving software available

case stability could be better ; 2x USB 2.0 ; port positions not ideal ; slow SD-card reader ; spongy keys ; display could have been brighter ; insufficient color space coverage ; bad webcam ; battery life much too short

Sorry Asus, but your stylish VivoBook S15 S510UQ is to some extent a failure. The test unit is sold for almost 1000 Euros (~$1180) on the market, and that rhymes neither with the mediocre case stability nor a keyboard that is just barely okay. And what...

Asus VivoBook S15 S510UA (i5-7200U, FHD) Laptop Review

 

Super sleek for cheap. Imagine the XPS 15 9560 stripped down to ULV configuration levels at half the starting price and you get the new VivoBook S15 S510 series. While this sounds good on paper, chassis quality leaves a lot to be desired.

2x internal storage bays, upgradeable RAM ; maximum CPU Turbo Boost performance ; relatively easy serviceability ; thin and very lightweight ; attractive chassis design ; decent stereo speakers ; USB Type-C Gen. 1 ; low fan noise ; no PWM

weak key feedback; disappointing trackpad ; unusual surface temperature development ; below average battery life ; no Thunderbolt 3 or mDP ; flexible plastic base ; slow SD reader

The VivoBook S510 series was designed to be more affordable than the ZenBook, XPS, or Spectre series without being any heavier or less attractive. It is, an essence, a budget-mainstream notebook wrapped in a super-thin flagship design. Asus has...

Asus VivoBook S15 S510UQ review: Attractive price and core spec, but battery life is a worry

 

When a 15.6-inch laptop with a 7th-generation Core i7 processor becomes available for well under £1,000, it catches the eye. When that laptop boasts a narrow screen bezel and brushed metal finish, it gets a second glance. However, it's unlikely that a...

Core i7 CPU and discrete GPU ; Compact chassis for a 15.6-inch laptop ; Competitive price

Moderate battery life ; Too much keyboard flex ; Only 256GB of internal storage ; VGA webcam

ASUS VivoBook S15 (S510UQ) review – a great multimedia solution that you can actually afford

 

ASUS has recently started pushing the mid-range multimedia market segment with a number of VivoBook laptops but if you don't have the extra money for the high-performance VivoBook Pro 15 N580…

Fairly good build qualityо;Pretty portable for its price;Good touchpad;Display with high contrast and decent maximum brightness;The display doesn’t use PWM for regulating screen brightness;Good sound quality

Spongy keyboard;Exceptionally high inner temperatures under heavy workload;Screen with limited sRGB coverage;Unsatisfactory battery life

Asus VivoBook S510U

 

An attractive mid-range laptop, for a good price. Asus VivoBook S510U.

Good-looking and durable ; Smooth performance ; Well-constructed keyboard

Occasionally iffy touchpad ; No dedicated graphics ; Screen lacks colour accuracy

There are other portable mid-range laptops available at the same price, but the Asus VivoBook S510U serves up some good specs in an attractive and rugged metal chassis.

Asus VivoBook S510U review

 

An average laptop for the average user

Solid performance ; Sturdy build quality

Fingerprint sensor placement ; Finicky touchpad ; ‘Meh’ battery life

This Asus VivoBook S is an affordable laptop that doesn’t stand out from the crowd, yet still hits all the marks.
