ASUS ExpertBook B5 Flip (B5302F) – Top 5 Pros and Cons

ASUS must be doing something right with their business ExpertBook brand since it has some of the highest satisfaction ratings among other much more established business brands like the Latitude from Dell and Lenovo’s ThinkPads.

The ExpertBook B5 Flip comes with everything you might want from a business device, including efficient components that can also perform decently when needed and display options that can provide good visuals regardless of your surroundings.

Today we present you with LaptopMedia’s top 5 picks about the ASUS ExpertBook B5 Flip (B5302F).

ASUS ExpertBook B5 Flip (B5302F): Full Specs / In-depth Review


4 reasons to BUY the ASUS ExpertBook B5 Flip (B5302F)

1. Design and build quality

The laptop comes with a fully metallic chassis including an aluminum lid and bottom panel, along with a magnesium-aluminum alloy for the base. As with all ExpertBook devices, the chassis is painted in a Navy blue color, with some ASUS and ExpertBook branding on the lid. The metal that we have all-around results in some pretty good rigidity, with the laptop resisting our attempts when we tried twisting it. All of that strength comes in a package that weighs only 1.31 kg and has a profile of 16.9 mm.


2. I/O

The quantity of ports here is stunning, despite the small chassis. There are two Thunderbolt 4 ports, a single USB Type-A 3.2 (Gen. 2) port, a micro HDMI 2.0b port, a volume button (similar to your smartphone), and a 3.5 mm audio jack.


3. Display quality

There are two Full HD display options, with either an IPS or an OLED panel, of which we tested the latter. It provides comfortable viewing angles, a max brightness of 387 nits in the middle of the screen, 387 nits average across the surface, and a maximum deviation of just 4%. The contrast ratio is infinite due to the nature of OLED panels. However, there are some issues, mainly the constant flickering, also known as PWM usage. There is a DC Dimming mode, which limits the PWM, but not completely.

In terms of color reproduction, the display shows full coverage of the sRGB and DCI-P3 gamuts.

The color coverage gets low enough for proper professional work, with the best possible dE value being achieved with the stock settings and with the DC Dimming setting turned off.


Buy our profiles

In addition to receiving efficient and health-friendly profiles, by buying LaptopMedia's products you also support the development of our labs, where we test devices in order to produce the most objective reviews possible.

Office Work

Office Work should be used mostly by users who spend most of the time looking at pieces of text, tables or just surfing. This profile aims to deliver better distinctness and clarity by keeping a flat gamma curve (2.20), native color temperature and perceptually accurate colors.

Design and Gaming

This profile is aimed at designers who work with colors professionally, and for games and movies as well. Design and Gaming takes display panels to their limits, making them as accurate as possible in the sRGB IEC61966-2-1 standard for Web and HDTV, at white point D65.

Health-Guard

Health-Guard eliminates the harmful Pulse-Width Modulation (PWM) and reduces the negative Blue Light which affects our eyes and body. Since it’s custom tailored for every panel, it manages to keep the colors perceptually accurate. Health-Guard simulates paper so the pressure on the eyes is greatly reduced.

4. Cooling

The cooling solution keeps the temps low and the noise to a minimum. All of that comes from a single heat pipe with one fan.


Max CPU load

Intel Core i5-1135G7 (15W TDP) 0:02 – 0:10 sec 0:15 – 0:30 sec 10:00 – 15:00 min
ASUS ExpertBook B5 Flip (B5302F) 3.40 GHz (B+42%) @ 93°C @ 40W 2.96 GHz (B+23%) @ 94°C @ 30W 2.51 GHz (B+5%) @ 80°C @ 22W

The CPU gets hot but manages to cool down in the later stages, at the expense of its clock speed of course, which hovers around the base speed of the chip.

Gaming comfort

The hotspot on the keyboard comes with a low temperature of only 38°C.


1 reason NOT to buy the ASUS ExpertBook B5 Flip (B5302F)

1. . Optional backlight

The keyboard and touchpad are very good for a laptop of this stature, with the former providing long key travel and clicky feedback. However, we find it weird that the backlight is only optional because we would have preferred to see it come as standard, considering the price of the laptop. As for the touchpad, we have no complaints about it, as the smooth surface gets the job more than well done.
