Sentiment Score 54%
Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following***:
The move from 16:9 to 3:2 has resulted in a larger, heavier, and thicker build than the UX392. Overall dimensions and weight are actually much closer to the 13.5-inch Surface Laptop 3 or MateBook X Pro. There's not much to upgrade beyond the M.2 SSD as both WLAN and RAM are soldered.
