Pros Of Lenovo Ideapad

Design and Build Quality

If You buy any Lenovo S series laptop you will get the same design, only the components will be different.

  • This is the strongest part of this laptop, basically, Lenovo takes all the good things from IdeaPad 330S and include everything into this laptop. Also, they are able to reduce the thickness and weight of Lenovo Ideapad S340 than the previous IdeaPad 330S.
  • The base panel of this laptop is made of plastic but it is coated with metal. So it gives you a premium feeling when you touch this laptop. Also, the top led of the Lenovo Ideapad S340 is made of aluminum which makes it very durable. The hinge quality of this laptop is also very good. 
  • The display of this laptop goes all the way to 180 degrees. So you can use this laptop on your bed more comfortably. 
  • This Lenovo Ideapad has little or no flex at all, So it can easily survive small scratches and occasional drops. Also, there is enough grip all around. So it should not drop accidentally from your hand.
  • WebCam shutter is another major plus point of this laptop. If you do not want your webcam your can just put the shutter on. So chances of accidental privacy breaches will be reduced.

Overall this is an awesome laptop from the design perspective. You will get a premium feel with this laptop. At the end of this section, I like to mention one small issue with this laptop, that is you can no open this laptop with one hand otherwise we do not have any issue with its design and build quality.

Display and Audio Quality Of Lenovo Ideapad S340

  • We use the 14-inch version of Lenovo Ideapad for our review. This non-touchscreen Full HD laptop with anti-glare technology. 
  • The maximum brightness of this laptop can goes up to 250 nits, but you may not need that. In our review, we use it at 60%-70% brightness, and that enough. The Lenovo Ideapad S340 has sufficient brightness for outdoor lighting. We are very much impressed with its display quality.
  • The sound quality of the Lenovo Ideapad S340 is neither good nor bad. Speakers are placed on either side of the base panel. They are loud but neither clear nor crisp, even when you enable the double sound. But on the brighter side, these speakers can fill a medium easily with its loud sound. If you occasionally play music through laptop speakers like me then it is perfect for you but if you want good sound quality then we would suggest you buy some good quality headphone or external mini speakers

Touchpad and Keyboard

  • This laptop gives you a full-size backlit keyboard, also you have the Numpad on the keyboard. In this laptop, Lenovo gives you two stages for your low light writing. We typed for long hours with these laptops and really find any mistakes in our typing.
  • The touchpad of these laptops is also up to the mark. Lenovo provides you a good and big enough touchpad and the responsiveness is also remarkable. The touchpad supports all normally used hand gestures. Also, the two keys within the laptops are fairly clickable and smooth. 

We do not find any major issue with either keyboard or touchpad. 

Performance Of Lenovo Ideapad S340

  • The performance of this laptop is out of the world. The hardware and software optimization on these laptops is very good. It takes 3-5 sec to boot up and when you open any application on this laptop, it will open within seconds.
  • Lenovo Ideapad gets its power from Intel 10th gen processors and 8 GB DDR4 RAM. Also, 256 Gb SSD makes it faster. Together they work as a team and gives you optimum performance.
  • This is a perfect laptop for light video editing or programming or internet surfing. I do not face any issues while working with Visual Studi Code or Android Studio. It can handle them with ease. I also tried some low-end games and found out that this laptop may not perfect for gaming but can handle a little bit of gaming easily.
  • Also, we do not face any heating issues on this laptop. Yes, it becomes hot when used continuously for log hours but that is ok for me.

Battery Backup

Lenovo claimed 10-hour battery life for this laptop, but when we used it for continuous video watching or gaming. This Lenovo Ideapad S340 need to plug in within 4-5 hour. However, we use it with full brightness and full sound. So you can safely expect 6-8 hours for normal use without electricity.

The charging of this laptop is also pretty fast. It supports fast charging with its 65w charger. It will fully charge within 1-1.5 hour when we charge it with the switch off mode. But when we charging it while using the laptop is takes a bit longer time.

Cons Of Lenovo Ideapad S340

  • Till now we have discussed only the good things about the laptop. Now we are going to know what is not that good on this laptop.
  • The price of this laptop is almost 60000 in India, So this should have a fingerprint scanner on it. Many less expensive laptops are providing this facility.
  • The next big concern for me is this laptop does not have any dedicated graphic card attached to its motherboard. So you can not play any high graphics game on this laptop. I don’t know why they do not include a graphic card as the processor is clearly capable of handle any high-end game.
  • Another issue is Lenovo only give you two USB port with this laptop. So if you use an external mouse and keyboard then you can not connect any other device without a USB hub. Though they compensate for that with a Type C port. But you can not charge your laptop with this Type C port, you can only use it for data transfer.
