After weeks of using review LG Gram 17 (2022). For a Multitasker like me, the 17inch screen to work correctly is a great screen. You can split 2 tabs, making it parallel without having to worry about tabs being split. Besides the wide screen with beautiful colors, the images I received are also more standard.
Movie watching experience
The movie watching experience on the LG Gram 17 (2022) is a must-see. Wide screen with WQXGA resolution and IPS panel, I no longer feel uncomfortable when watching action movies and movies about my Harry Potter wizarding world because the colors are pale or the black color keeps getting patchy. due to the TN panel of the old laptop.
One more point, the laptop in my hand is equipped with 16GB RAM, so with 20 Chrome tabs and 2 Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Premiere apps exporting Video, it is still enough to run without freeze or lag (fan spinning). a bit noisy)
Not born for gaming and graphics
Of course, with the i7-1260p configuration and 512SSD, I can handle more multi-tasking. But one thing you need to note that, LG Gram 17 (2022) is not born to handle graphics or video tasks because it only uses Intel’s integrated graphics card. So, using the LG Gram 17 (2022) to do professional graphics or video, or even play hardcore games, can’t feel as smooth as professional models.
However, the consolation point here for Multitaskers is that the basic tasks of Photoshop, Video or entertainment games can still be performed at a light level.
LG Gram 17 (2022) owns a pair of 1.5W speakers at the bottom and back of the machine with a pretty good Decibel level. Normally when increasing the volume to the maximum level, the Laptop models will more or less have a slight crackle. But with LG Gram 17 (2022) , I have not felt it. And its sound is also quite loud compared to conventional 17-inch laptop models.
With this sound quality when playing games is quite good because it clearly shows where the enemy is, but for listening to music, it is a bit not very good if you open it too loud, because basically the speaker shows the sound too clearly. so the feeling of music will not be very chill.
Review LG Gram 17 (2022): Keyboard
When reviewing LG Gram 17 (2022), I really liked this keyboard. Because I’m basically a fan of the Fullsize keyboard, it will provide the full functionality of a keyboard and especially the popular numeric keypad.
However, the keyboard is a bit fingerprinted – I think it’s harder to see fingerprints with the white and gray colors, and if you have OCD, buying the black LG Gram 17 is a bit not a perfect choice.
The larger space on the Fullsize keyboard will make typing more comfortable and the fingerprint reader will be integrated in the power button.
The touchpad is also quite stable, and it’s incredibly smooth as you move your fingers; and especially it’s sensitive.
LG Gram 17 (2022) is equipped with a fairly large capacity battery and meets a long working day (usually 8 hours); which by the end of the job, the battery remains.
