Quality wise, yes OLED is far better and these new Samsung made E4 OLEDs have very good blue light filter which reduces strain to your eyes. However, almost all OLED displays in laptop use PWM to control the brightness which might cause some issues with people sensitive to that. This one, use PWM below 60% brightness and the frequency is 60Hz. So, below that brightness, if you're sensitive to PWM, it may cause headache.

Photo editing, it is okay. Not much suitable for 4K video editing or even higher end 1080p editing as it doesn't have dedicated GPU.

It's a high-end screen stuffed into a low-end shell. This is a Vivobook, so expect build quality along the lines of a Pavilion/Inspiron/Ideapad.

This review had information about a similar model with the same screen: https://www.notebookcheck.net/Asu...404.0.html

The good news is the display is very good, with one caveat being that it utilizes low frequency PWM for dimming, so people who are sensitive to that should look elsewhere.

Bad news is that despite a lot of ports, the ports they chose are not very good: USB-A 2.0 instead of 3.0, USB-C without Power Delivery or DisplayPort, and HDMI 1.4 instead of 2.0.
Though the specs and price are comparable, you've either already bought this ASUS because of the OLED screen or not. The specs are solid, but for this price you're either paying the premium for the OLED screen in the case of the ASUS or the thin-and-light construction on the LG Gram. While the LG Gram's construction has its adherents, there are no doubt a larger group of OLED fans (such as myself) for whom comparing specs to something like the LG Gram is meaningless.

In part, the rarity of OLED laptops allows ASUS to set their price points/tier whereas LG has to "earn" its price premium over similarly equipped laptops that might cost $100 less (or more!). Put another way, you could get the LG's specs in a cheaper laptop (and which is by extension true of the ASUS since they're the same) but you aren't going to find that OLED screen in any other laptops at this price point (with Samsung being the closest competition).

Good luck!
Jon

Bring on the mainstream OLEDS!

I'll try this out to see if can improve my streaming entertainment, i.e. is it calibrated well? Yes, I know Pantone...

Battery capacity on lower side. I was really interested in this until I saw 42Wh battery. Won't last more than 4 hours on medium usage. My current laptop has 56Wh and have U series processor but hardly last 5 hours.

The LG gramhas pretty much best in class battery life. it has a MASSIVE 80WHr battery, so basically double the battery of the Asus vivobook, and most other laptops, but still remains a feather-light 2.47lbs.

You cant go wrong either way, but the Vivobook with the oled is more of a PC for media consumption, photo editing, etc. While the LG gram is like a traveling/commute/school laptop, you buy it for mobile use, because of both the lightweight and long battery (something like 21hrs of mixed use)

Even though the LG Gram can do all those things I think of it as a top option for working. The screen is also pretty decent for most people though.

Which is false. HP spectre is a good budget option with solid specs. Dell XPS a little more premium but the claim of 1.5k being entry point for OLED is simply untrue. Source: used to own a 4k HP Spectre x360 @ ~1k
