The Dell Inspiron 14 7435 offers good general performance with a larger storage capacity, making it suitable for daily tasks and moderate multitasking. It's more portable than the Lenovo Flex 5 16 and has a longer battery life, which makes it a strong candidate for those who are always on the go. However, the Lenovo Flex 5 16 has a higher resolution display with better color accuracy, contrast, and brightness, which translates into a more vivid and sharper visual experience, ideal for creative tasks or enjoy media content. The Lenovo also slightly outperforms the Dell in more demanding 3D and engineering tasks owing to its processor and integrated graphics, but both are not optimal for intensive gaming. Consider the need for portability versus screen quality and performance for heavier computational tasks when making your decision. Give Feedback

PCMag

Eric Grevstad | August 2023
"We see no shame in an economy laptop missing the four-star mark. Frankly, we considered giving the Inspiron 14 2-in-1 three-and-a-half stars for its low price, competitive performance, and long battery life. Unfortunately, working with a screen that can't deliver at least 300 nits of brightness is simply no fun to the point of detrimental. Still, if you're looking for a convertible laptop on a tight budget, it's worth keeping an eye on Dell's sales and discounts. That Lavender Blue model is fairly tempting."

Andreas Osthoff | April 2023
"The Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 is a solidly equipped, 2-in-1 in the lower price segment. Performance is definitely sufficient for everyday tasks and in tests the battery proved itself to be very economical. That aside, there is a lot of standard fare on show and a search for real highlights ends in vain. The low color coverage and reflective display can be avoided by going for an optional 2.5K display but this also presumably results in poorer battery life. The cooling uses only one fan and leads to a raised temperature on one side of the device under load. Additionally, there is very loud fan noise, also under load or when gaming. On top of that, we also occasionally noticed electronic noises."
