LG Gram laptop review, a good choice

Time:2020-03-24Popularity: Author: raodeng


LG laptops are rare, but the new LG Gram can change it nicely. This 14-inch ultra-portable laptop has a gorgeous display, a click-through keyboard and long battery life. LG's 2.2-pound system also includes sound impact. Unfortunately, when you use the touchscreen, the lid shakes and the performance of the laptop is not as expected. Overall, LGGram is an excellent multimedia laptop that you can take with you. Designing LGGram has a minimalist grey look that is too dull for my taste. The chassis is made of metal alloys (nano-carbon and magnesium), the only thing worth noting is the silver Gram logo protruding from the center of the lid. When I lightly press the lid, it bends more than I want. When I touch the display, it shakes, making the touch screen function a bit frustrated.


On the plus side, there are almost no bezels around the display, which makes the content popular and the case can still be mounted on the smallest webcam on top of the lid (there is no nose cam here, just like on the Dell XPS13).


The island keyboard on Gram looks very neat and its technical font reminds me of something in Bourne movies. However, the keyboard looks a little weird because it doesn't immerse into the case; it's just flat. The touchpad is almost integrated into the chassis, but fortunately, it doesn't have the same metal texture.


The LG Gram weighs 2.2 pounds and 12.7 x 8.3 x 0.6 inches, making it the lightest consumer laptop among its competitors. The HP Spectre 13 is the thinnest, with a 0.4-inch chassis, and the Huawei MateBook XPRO is the heaviest, at 2.9 pounds. The Dell XPS139370 is among the thickest, along with LG, 0.6 inches. Even though LGGram is thin, it has a fair number of ports. Starting from the left, there are a power jack, a USB 3.0 port, an HDMI port, and a USB-TypeC port. On the right, there is a secure lock slot, a USB 3.0 port, a headphone / microphone combo jack, and a microSD slot. The 14-inch, 1920 × 1080, IPS touchscreen display displaying LGGram is bright and colorful, and the smooth panel doesn't have too much glare.

According to the colorimeter, LGGram's panel covers 128% of the stable SRGB color gamut, giving the display a good lead over 112% of average advanced laptops and 111% of Spectre13. XPS 13 and MateBook XPro account for 117% (130 on 4K) and 124% respectively. With a brightness of 307 nits, the LG Gram just surpassed the average of 305-nits and hit the Phantom 13 (247 nits) again. However, the XPS13 and MateBookXPro are both brighter, averaging 372 nits (4K on 4K) and 458 nits, respectively. Keyboard, touchpad and touch screen Despite the very low travel, only 0.9 mm, LGGram's backlit keyboard is stylish, comfortable to use and has excellent click-through rate. I just want the backlight to be set on the slider, not low or high. I typed 64 words per minute in the typing test, which is not far from my 68-wpm average.

When I draw a demon cow in MS Paint, LGGram's touchscreen panel tracks my fingers well and accurately, but as I said before, the screen is disturbing. Audio

Thanks to the DTS Audio app, LGGram's speakers are full of epic passion as they fill the Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" medium-sized conference room. The soft, hypnotic sound is accurately presented in the introduction, especially when the next verse is brought into the rhythm keyboard. An important highlight was the end of the song, when Freddie Mercury sang his heart, while intense guitar solo, bass guitar riffs and thumping percussion synchronized to create a gorgeous listening experience. With customizable treble and bass, LG gives you full control over your sound. performance

LG Gram can meet all your needs, from more than 30 tabs in Google Chrome to the Blast Queen, while messing up some fools in Overwatch. With LG Gram's 1.8GHz Intel Core i7-8550U CPU, 8GB RAM, 512GB SSD storage and Intel UHD620 graphics card, all this is possible.

In Geekbench4's overall performance test, LGGram scored 10,549, which is slightly lower than the average of 10,791 advanced laptops. However, using the same processors, MateBook XPro (12,913), Spectre 13 (13,388) and XPS13 (14,180) all perform better. LGGram copied 4.97GB of multimedia files in 30 seconds at a rate of 170 megabytes per second. Although this may not seem slow, it is well below the average of 288MBps. MateBookXPro did not exceed the average, with 283MBps, but Spectre 13 and XPS13 completely exceeded it, with 339 and 508MBps, respectively. In the HandBrake test, LG Gram spent 22 minutes and 55 seconds transcoding 4K video to 1080p, which is close to the average of 22:15. This time is even faster than the MateBook XPro's 27:18, but it is overlapped at 16:00 in the XPS13.


Battery life LG Gram will guide you through the workday and then some work. When I was surfing the Internet at 150 nits via Wi-Fi, the LG Gram's battery lasted 10 hours and 46 minutes. This beats the average of 8:19 premium laptops as well as the time of Spectre13 (5:16) and the display of MatebookXPro (9:55). Although the XPS13 with 4K display lasted 8:23, the 1080p configuration beat LG Gram 11:59. Cooling

Although this ultra-thin laptop is full of powerful features, it is still very cool. The underside is only 89 degrees Fahrenheit, far below our 95 degree comfort level. The center of the keyboard and touchpad reaches 90 degrees and 81 degrees, respectively. It is equipped with 1.8 GHz Intel Core i7-8550U, 8GB RAM, 512GB SSD storage, Intel UHD 620 graphics card and touch screen display. The lower-priced version also has a different price, which can be reduced to 1.6GHz Intel Core i5-8250U and 256 SSD. This particular laptop is also white.

With its almost non-existent bezels, vivid display, and awesome speakers, the LG Gram is a rugged multimedia laptop that's so light that you hardly notice it in your bag, which is very convenient Carry, LG Grami, is a good choice.
