The ASUS VivoBook 15 F515JA-AH31 is a fresh in the market multimedia laptop that is taking the world up by a storm with its budget-friendly price and terrific performance. If you have used or heard about the VivoBook 15 S530, the device is a lot similar to that.
Aside from the latest processors, the device does feature the standard chassis that ASUS is known for. But, even with mild alterations to the design, the device has created a rave in the market, all thanks to its price point.
Here, we are going to give you a quick rundown of everything that you need to know about the device with all the specifications sorted.
Design and build
Featuring a 19.9mm profile and weighing 1.80kg, the VivoBook 15 F515JA-AH31 stands out with respect to the design and portability. But, even the highly refined design, the laptop falls short on the build quality. It is made entirely out of plastic, but you can’t complain given the price point.
However, even with the plastic material, it is extremely soft and flexible for the user to operate as per their needs. The exterior part of the lid has a glossy finish to it, while the rest of the device has a rough texture with a matte finish. So, if you expect no scratches, you are setting yourself up for a disappointment.
Another good prospect to the design is the ErgoLift mechanism, which gives it a more comfortable typing experience.
The rest of the device has a very standard design with a backlit keyboard, which again is quite a stunning shock, given the price of the device. It also lacks a fingerprint reader, which means that you have to settle for the standard login process.
Next on the list of features worth discussing is the display. The ASUS VivoBook 15 F515JA-AH31 is equipped with a 15.6” FHD IPS display with 1080p screen resolution and narrow bezels. The aspect ratio of the device is 16:9 with a high pixel density of 142 ppi.
The best part of the display, aside from the vibrant colors and the crisp imaging, were the viewing angles. There was no risks of fading of overlapping, enabling you to make the most out of it. Even the correlated color temperature of the display was recorded at 6750K.
Coming round to the performance, the VivoBook 15 F515JA-AH31 is powered by up to Intel Core i3-1005G1, which is the best processor that you can get for the device. In case you aren’t much into graphics and gaming, you can settle for the non-dedicated GPU that the device comes with.
The combination of these processors, paired with the sleek display ensures that the user experience sleek and uninterrupted performance without any hassle.
The battery capacity of the device is 37 Wh, which is a disappointment because you know for a fact that you will need constant power connection to keep the device functioning. It enables the users to experience roughly up to 7 hours of screen time with moderate to heavy-usage.
Storage and Memory
Skipping aside from the actual processors and performance of the device, the VivoBook 15 F515JA-AH31 also features 128GB SSD for storage, which is a lot faster and efficient compared to the standard HDD storage.
As for the memory, it is integrated with 4GB RAM for seamless multitasking without any interruptions. It also runs on the Windows 10 Home in S Mode, which comes with a few tweaks and modifications than the standard available options around.
Another factor in this device that makes it a superior option is the comprehensive I/O ports, including fingerprint sensor, USB 3.2 Type-A, USB 3.2 Type-C along with the standard SD card reader and HDMI port.
But the connectivity doesn’t just stop there. The VivoBook 15 F515JA is also backed with the latest wireless connectivity options with dual band Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) that keeps you connected without any interruptions at all.
Wrapping it up, we can say that the new ASUS VivoBook 15 F515JA-AH31 is a masterpiece, given how cheap the device is. If you are looking for a very premium device, this is not the one for you. But, if you are okay with settle with the basic features and functions, this is not a pick at all.
The display and the battery are average and helps you get through the day seamlessly without intrusion, the same with the processors too.
