Asus VivoBook K15 OLED review: An excellent laptop for work and play

The VivoBook K15 OLED laptop from Asus is the latest offering that tries to offer more for less. This is also the company’s first laptop in the VivoBook line-up to ship with an OLED display, and we will talk about how it looks in a bit.

But the most important thing that probably makes the VivoBook K15 OLED more appealing is the price point. It starts at under Rs 50,000 and goes all the way up to Rs 81,990 for users who want the best processor under the hood.

The display is the biggest highlight of the VivoBook K15 OLED, but more things make this laptop an ideal machine for work and play, where you can shuffle between your office tasks during the weekdays to multimedia consumption during the weekends. I got the VivoBook K15 OLED unit with an Intel Core i5-1135G7 processor that’s priced at Rs 68,990. In this review, I will try to break down the overall package to tell you whether it is worth buying.

Asus VivoBook K15 OLED review: Gorgeous display

I like to start my reviews by talking about the design of a device, but considering the display of the VivoBook K15 OLED is the biggest highlight. So why not start with the most important factor?

It features a bright panel that offers a peak brightness of 600 nits and 100 per cent DCI-P3 colour gamut compared to 62.5 per cent on most rivals around the same price. Compared to the LCD displays at this price, the VivoBook K15 OLED offers an OLED panel that provides richer and more vivid colours. Texts appear sharp, and images are crisp. Asus claims that the VivoBook K15 OLED packs a cinema-grade industry-standard panel, and I don’t doubt that.

In recent months, the display on the VivoBook K15 OLED has been one of the most versatile panels I have used or reviewed and, in my opinion, offers a better display quality overall than the Microsoft Surface Laptop 4, which I reviewed a few weeks back.
