Top 5 reasons to BUY or NOT to buy the ASUS ZenBook Flip 15 UX564

The ZenBook series is full of premium ultrabooks that can both be used for creative and business needs. The ZenBook Flip 15 UX564 is every bit premium, while also bringing a lot of power and portability.

The device also comes with a great display, according to ASUS, which has great color reproduction, more of which you’ll see down below. Some consumers are going to ask where is the OLED panel?

No need to worry, it is there, sitting behind a different nameplate. The OLED-equipped laptop is called the ZenBook Flip 15 OLED UX564, with the sole change being the different display.

Today we are presenting you with LaptopMedia’s top 5 picks about the ASUS ZenBook Flip 15 UX564.

ASUS ZenBook Flip 15 UX564: Full Specs / In-depth Review

4 reasons to BUY the ASUS ZenBook Flip 15 UX564

1. Design and build quality

The device is made entirely from metal and is very durable, with no flex from both the lid and the base. The lid is further reinforced by the Gorilla Glass display cover. The weight is also very manageable, coming in at 1.90 kg. The laptop also has a profile of 19.9 mm. In terms of the design itself, we get a black exterior with some silver hits on the hinges, the base and lid outline, and the ASUS logo. The lid cannot be opened with one hand, but the ErgoLift mechanism more than makes up for it, improving the comfortability and the cooling at the same time.

2. Display quality

The 15.6-inch Full HD IPS panel does a wonderful job that delivers comfortable viewing angles, a max brightness of 298 nits in the middle of the screen and 281 nits as an average for the whole area, with a maximum deviation of 9%. The contrast ratio of 960:1 can seem a little low, but the laptop is more than usable for every occasion. The laptop covers 90% of the sRGB color gamut and has decent although not perfect color accuracy.

Applying our Design and Gaming profile didn’t accomplish a lot bringing the dE value to 2.3 from 2.8. Here are the results from the test with the factory settings (left) and with our profile applied (right).

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 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.

3. Battery life

With a battery unit of 96Wh, the laptop crushed our battery life tests, lasting for 21 hours and 20 minutes of Web browsing, and 11 hours and 9 minutes of video playback. Now, we conduct the battery tests with Windows Better performance setting turned on, screen brightness adjusted to 120 nits, and all other programs turned off except for the one we are testing the notebook with. Here you can see the ZenBook Flip 15 UX564 compared against the previous-gen UX563 and other competitors.

In order to simulate real-life conditions, we used our own script for automatic web browsing through over 70 websites.

For every test like this, we use the same video in HD.

4. I/O

The ZenBook brings a nice selection of ports, giving you a total of two Thunderbolt 4 connectors, a single USB Type-A 3.2 (Gen. 1), an SD card reader, an HDMI connector, and a 3.5 mm audio jack.
