Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 14 review: AMD nails it again

 

Lenovo's IdeaPad Flex 5 14 is another in a line of budget laptops using AMD's latest Ryzen 4000 processors. We put it through its paces to see how it stacks up.

Extraordinary performance for a budget laptop ; Comfortable keyboard and touchpad ; Active pen included ; Excellent value ; Solid speakers

Mediocre display ; Boring look

Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 14 Review

 

Robust computing performance ; Excellent value ; Soft-touch, durable chassis ; Screen supports touch input ; Webcam privacy shutter ; Two USB Type-A ports

Relatively heavy for a 14-inch ultraportable ; Dim 250-nit display

Thanks to a brand-new AMD Ryzen processor, Lenovo's IdeaPad Flex 5 14 offers an extraordinary blend of performance and value for money, making it one of the best popularly priced 2-in-1 convertibles we've tested.

Lenovo Flex 5 (14-inch) Review

 

The Lenovo Flex 5 is a strong performer with an attractive design, but its dim display and shallow keyboard brings it down.

Attractive, two-tone design; Solid performance

Bland, dim display; Shallow keyboard

Lenovo Flex 5 Review: A well-rounded machine with some typical weaknesses

 

The Lenovo Flex 5 is a great laptop that you can use for entertainment or productivity. It has a great build quality, and the screen is top notch.

Great screen aside from glare ; Flexible design that allows for a myriad of configurations ; Great design, not an ugly slab of plastic

Weak speakers with little bass ; Screen glare can be annoying

The Lenovo Flex 5 is a great laptop that you can use for entertainment or productivity. The different positions to which you can adjust the screen make it very adaptable however you may want to use it. It has a great build quality, the screen is top...

Lenovo Ideapad Flex 5 (14) review – the optional GeForce MX330 has its perks and drawbacks

 

Today, we have the brand new Lenovo Ideapad Flex 5 (14). Its a stylish little 2-in-1, which should be good for work, light gaming, and, of course, be used as a table. Or, at least that's what…

Versatile and stable hinges;Good battery life;SD card slot and Wi-Fi 6 support;Doesn’t use aggressive PWM (LP140WFA-SPMB);Optional fingerprint reader

No RAM upgradability post-purchase;Extremely hot under load (Intel + NVIDIA combo);Covers only half of the colors in the sRGB gamut (LP140WFA-SPMB)

Lenovo Yoga 520 (Flex 5) (14-inch) review – the Yoga 720 on a budget with little to no trade-offs

 

With the higher price of the new Yoga 520, compared to the older Yoga 510, we get not only apparent visual improvement but also a much better chassis, more comfortable input devices, improved porta…

Good build quality;Great input devices;Decent IPS display for the more budget-oriented configurations;The panel doesn’t use PWM for regulating screen brightness;A lot of upgradability options for a 14-inch device (2.5-inch HDD + M.2 SSD slot + RAM slot)

Subpar battery life;The display appears to be a bit dim and color-deficient for the more expensive configurations with Core i5 and i7

LENOVO IdeaPad Flex 5 14" 2 in 1 Laptop - Intel® Core™ i5, 256 GB SSD, Grey

 

It is exactly what we were looking for. Light enough Dual purpose Robust hinges Easy to use

Battery life could always be better but it lasts longer than my Dell which cost 3 times more!

LENOVO IdeaPad Flex 5 14" 2 in 1 Laptop - Intel® Core™ i5, 256 GB SSD, Grey

 

Great to use as both a laptop and a tablet. Quick to start up.

Battery life is good but not as great as promised. Loses 5% when it isn't plugged in, even if it isn't on.
