ASUS VivoBook S14 S435’s display can be used for professional work (with a little help)

If you saw the VivoBook S14 S435, you wouldn’t think that it’s a creator-type of the machine. First of all, the VivoBook brand is tailored towards younger consumers, offering good performance and good-looking designs. The VivoBook S14 S435 in itself is a great daily driver, as it covers a lot of ground, while not charging a lot for it. It comes equipped with up to a Core i7-1165G7 and the Iris Xe Graphics G7, which shows a lot of performance (for an iGPU, at least).

However, one area where the laptop surprised us was the quality of its display, which shows a lot of promise, especially in the realm of professional work.

ASUS VivoBook S14 S435: Full Specs / In-depth Review

Display quality

The laptop has a 14.0-inch Full HD IPS display which has comfortable viewing angles, a maximum brightness of 380 nits in the middle of the screen, and 384 nits as an average for the entirety of the display area. This calculates a maximum deviation of 9%. The contrast ratio is very good, sitting at 1590:1.

The color coverage surprised us a lot as the display covers 98% of the sRGB color gamut. This ensures vibrant and deep colors.

We tested the color accuracy both with the factory settings and with our Design and Gaming profile. We got great results with our profile, which brought the dE value down to 0.9, which is a standard matching value. This makes the panel ready for professional work, which is exceptional for an already very versatile device.

Below you can see the results both with the factory settings (left) and with our Design and Gaming 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.
