by birtanpublished on October 2, 2020

what's up people varun here so today we have with us lenovo ideapad s340 this is a 14 inch device powered by a ryzen 5 3500d processor so let's unbox this quickly find out how the laptop is and then let's review it together all right let's open this box up okay so we are greeted with the paperwork let me pull this out yes charger so this is your power card

And this is your normal barrel connector your barrel charger anything else in the box nope empty let me put this aside let's remove this let me remove the plastic quickly all right yep for a 14 inch device this is a bit heavy yeah but the fit and finish on top is is pretty amazing actually for a budget laptop let me open this yep so yeah this is lenovo ipad s340 so in the box you get the laptop

The power cord and the charger and some paperwork this is the paperwork that's it so this was your unboxing experience for lenovo ideapad s340 now let's jump to the review all right people another day another exciting budget laptop for you guys we are reviewing the lenovo ideapad s340 today the model number is one for api it comes with ryzen 5 3500 processor 8gb of ddr4 ram and a combination of 1tb

Hdd and a 256 gb ssd of internal storage i bought this for 43 000 rupees and i opted for the abyss blue color as it looks much more premium than the platinum grey offering to start of the review let me touch based on the display first as this is its only weak point it's a 14 inch full hd ips display with a resolution of 1920 by 1080p you won't notice anything if you're looking dead on but as soon as you move your head or display around you will notice where lenovo has cut

Corners the viewing angles on s340 are not great at all the colors are washed out and the contrast is poor you cannot do any color intensive work on this but for content consumption and normal home office work this display will serve its purpose if we talk numbers the display covers 51 of the srgb color gamut and the next count is 250. the screen to body ratio is nothing to write home bought as well the bezels surrounding the display panel are slim on top and the sides the bottom bezel is unusually large and

Sticks out like a sore thumb overall at this price point you get a very basic display which is ok for regular use now let's point our focus to build quality and design when i unbox this laptop i couldn't believe that i was holding a budget laptop although the body is made of plastic lenovo has done something unique here they have weaved carbon fiber threads into the chassis which makes it much more stronger than the normal plastic body chassis you

Experience on other budget laptops also the laptop has a rubberized finish on the base which makes fingerprints harder to stick to the surface on the lid s340 has an aluminium finish which looks nice overall the build quality is quite sturdy the 180 degree hinge specially is really strong and doesn't flex the bottom of the s340 is clean with the air intake grilles and rubberized pads the heat vents are located at the bottom chassis behind the keyboard and they are quite large which keeps this laptop cool lenovo

Calls s340 ultra 10 and light but for a 14 inch device this weighs 1.6 kgs which is quite heavy one unique feature of this laptop is the privacy shutter camera button slide it open when you are ready to be on the camera and push it back into place when you are done super nifty if you're worried about your privacy if we talk about the performance ryzen 5 3500u with 8gb of ram and vega at graphics

Doesn't disappoint either for regular use this laptop is amazing you can run multiple programs and s340 will handle everything with ease no thermal throttling here and this laptop keeps it cool under heavy load the 256 gb high performance ssd also helps in fast read and write speeds now comes the gaming radeon vega 8 graphics with 2gb of video ram helps immensely in gaming as well i tried fortnite and it worked like a charm without any lag or stutter on medium settings you can play aaa titles on low settings

If you wish this is not a gaming laptop but for casual gamers who are into not so demanding titles this is a perfect machine battery life is decent as well during my testing this laptop lasted for around 6-7 hours while doing normal stuff like browsing and streaming music with brightness at eighty percent it supports fast charging as well and will charge up to fifty percent in less than an hour now let's talk about the keyboard i loved typing on this keyboard the

Keyboard has a springy and responsive feel with enough travel to satisfy everyone below the keyboard you will see the trackpad and it's really good as well it's an okay size and supports windows gestures as all budget laptop goes it requires some pressure to register a click but this isn't a surprise at this price point the number of ports on offer here makes up for things like the lackluster display on the right you will find two usb type

A 3.1 gen 1 ports and an sd card reader on the left you have the charge port and hdmi connector a usb type c 3.1 gen 1 port and an audio jack the usb c does not support charging sadly in terms of upgradability there is good news as well you have the option of upgrading both ram and the storage ram can be upgraded to up to 24 gb lastly speakers are super loud not loud like the macbooks but when i compare with the other budget laptops

They are much much better they are located on the bottom sides and produce good output which can fill a room easily all right time for final thoughts this is one of the best budget 14 inch laptops in the market right now for under 45k you cannot get a better deal the look and feel is premium performance is snappy battery life is quite good and the keyboard is amazing for casual gamers this can be a perfect choice as well thanks to vega graphics the biggest letdown like a lot of budget laptops

Is the display which is very basic but if you can look past that then it can be a really good laptop for your regular home office lifestyle as of now this laptop is out of stock on flipkart and selling for about 50k on amazon india better to wait it out as festive sales are just around the corner and the same laptop will see a reduction in price to the tune of around 10 to 20 percent if you can get this one below 45k it will be a steal of a deal
