We appreciate being able to hide the webcam behind a cover when not in use in order to protect privacy.

The screen has significant vertical and horizontal viewing angles thanks to its IPS technology, although it is not high-end here obviously considering the positioning of this laptop, which implies average color accuracy.
The screen is well suited for displaying High Definition content and particularly videos due to its Full HD resolution and 16:9 format.
Thanks to its anti-reflective treatment, the screen is also more readable than a glossy panel in bright environments (e.g. outdoors).

Performance, battery life of the Asus VivoBook Go 15 S1504FA-NJ311W

The Asus VivoBook Go 15 S1504FA-NJ311W could attract those who want to acquire an elegant, thin and light 15-inch High Definition laptop for everyday mobile use.

In terms of autonomy, it is indeed capable of lasting about 10 hours on battery for light use (see our test dedicated to a similar model), which will delight mobile users as well as some students looking for a laptop, especially since its controlled weight and slimness make it as easy to carry as an Ultrabook.

Obviously, to offer such autonomy, this laptop relies on energy-efficient components.
This is the case with its AMD Ryzen 5 7520U Mendocino Quad Core processor, which is low power and also houses the Radeon 610M graphics part.

This processor delivers good performance in everyday use, as well as for viewing photos and videos, especially since it is paired with a good amount of 16 GB of RAM, above average and very useful for multitasking.

Storage is also low power, as it is entrusted to an SSD that is more energy-efficient than a hard drive but also more robust, silent, and much faster.
In practice, the SSD ensures much better smoothness and responsiveness in daily use than a hard drive.

The SSD notably offers much faster startups/shutdowns and software launches than a hard drive.
Like a hard drive in terms of capacity, the SSD offers 512 GB in this case.
However, if more space is needed, an external storage unit can be used. Opting for a USB 3.0/USB-C device is then an interesting solution to benefit from fast transfers.
