Hello, guys. Today, in this article, I"m going to review the Acer Aspire 3 A315-57G laptop in detail.

Bạn đang xem: 1

In addition to that, I will also compare it with other laptops to lớn give you an idea of what lớn expect from the same price range laptops. So, let’s get started. But before I begin, read my dedicated article on laptop specs written in easy-to-understand language.


Furthermore, the reviews unit that I have received from New Delhi, India has the following specs.

Technical Specs of Acer Aspire 3 A315-57G Laptop

The Build unique and Material

*

This Acer Aspire 3 A315-57G laptop is all-plastic build. Though the material is plastic, it"s pretty solid and sturdy enough. The plastic lid is enough capable lớn withstand the flex. The smooth plastic silver finish base is also quite solid enough.

Dimensions & Weight

The dimensions of this Acer Aspire 5 A514-52G are 36.3 cms (14.3 inches) in width, 25.1 cms (9.9 inches) in depth, and 2 cms (0.8 inches) in height. In addition to lớn that, I have also measured the weight using Propert’s weighing scale. The weight is

For máy tính only: 1.9 kg (4.18 lbs)For máy tính xách tay with charging accessories: 2.15 kg (4.73 lbs)

The purpose to check the laptop’s weight with its charging accessories is khổng lồ give you an idea about the weight you may need to carry during traveling. When compared to other laptops, it found much lightweight.

Display quality and màu sắc Reproduction

Size and Quality

This Acer Aspire 3 A315-57G is coming with a 15.6-inch Full HD TN display. And, it has a 60Hz refresh rate. The display is surrounded by an 8.5mm thin bezel which gives you more screen-to-body ratio. It has better viewing angles with a 940:1 contrast ratio, thanks to the TN display. However, the viewing angles are not as good as of IPS panel.

The contrast ratio for this display is below-average (1000:1). At vanhoanghean.com, we recommend the minimum 1000:1 value for it. Next, see the color gamut of the screen.

Screen màu sắc Reproduction

I have measured the screen màu sắc gamut lớn measure color reproduction efficiency. For that, I have used the Spyder 5 PRO. Và the SRGB, AdobeRGB, and NTSC results for this 15.6-inch TN display are in the below image.

*

As shown in the above image, the màu sắc gamut for this laptop’s display is 58% of SRGB, 44% of AdobeRGB, và 41% of NTSC as produced by Spyder 5 PRO. The colour gamut results are not good for professional photo and đoạn clip editing. But, they are perfectly fine for students, document preparation, programmers, content writers, and many more.

Display Nits at different Brightness levels

*

This Acer Aspire 3 A315-57G display has reached 223 Nits at 100% of screen brightness at the center of the screen as shown in the above image. So, below an average brighter display. The average brighter display should have nits value of at least 290 to lớn 300. The 300 nits display allows you lớn work in direct sunlight without having pain in your eyes.

Screen Flex

When intentionally moved the display of this máy tính up & down with fingers, I found little flex but it wasn"t problematic for me. Despite not having an aluminium lid, the display has managed to withstand the flex as much as possible. In addition khổng lồ that, the 180-degree hinge of this máy tính has also contributed lớn the prevention of the flex.

The hinge is found running mostly along the base. The length is above-average that helped the screen lớn resist the flex. It is to note that I failed when I have tried to mở cửa the display with one finger. That shows the uneven distribution of weight across the hinge.

Keyboard

Build unique and Flex

*

The chiclet keyboard of this Acer Aspire 3 A315-57G máy vi tính is made of all-plastic including island. The keys have black background & white texts on it including secondary function icons. At vanhoanghean.com, we also recommend đen keys with white text on it because it offers better, faster, and easier visibility while typing.

When pressed the keyboard of this máy tính xách tay down hard with fingers with a fair amount of pressure, I found little flex there. But, lớn be frank, it wasn’t even problematic for me during aggressive typing.

In addition to lớn that, the WASD part isn’t highlighted here, which isn’t even required since this Acer Aspire 3 A315-57G laptop is not a gaming machine.

Backlit

It"s pretty awkward that the keyboard of this laptop has no backlit. Backlit helps you in typing in low-light or night area. But, on the other hand, it also contributes lớn battery drain. At vanhoanghean.com, we recommend a backlit keyboard for máy tính xách tay under Rs 50,000 price in India.

Typing Experience

*

While typing on this keyboard, I found the keys were travelling on average 1.5mm of distance downside. That’s a exactly minimum that we recommend. At vanhoanghean.com, we recommend at least 1.5mm of travel for keys for tactile feedback. In addition, I found the feedback consistent.

However, typing on this keyboard is also bit noisy. But, okay. The nguồn button is placed just next khổng lồ the Multiplication key of Num pad. However, it"s not problem for you while typing because, accidental wrong-press won"t trigger any action. It"s because you"ve khổng lồ long-press the power nguồn button to execute the function assigned lớn it.

Small và Very Closely Placed 2 Arrow Keys

There are 2 arrow keys - Up và down arrow keys, which are too small in kích cỡ and placed very close to one another. And, that can trigger accidental wrong-press. I"ve also complained about such placements for Asus, Acer, Dell, và HP laptops.

So, overall, the keyboard is better than the asus VivoBook Ultra 15 M513 & Mi Notebook 14 Horizon laptops. This keyboard doesn"t bend down while normal typing, unlike mi Notebook"s keyboard.

Touchpad

*

The 4.1-inch plastic touchpad of the Acer Aspire 3 A315-57G laptop is smooth, responsive, & accurate. However, it"s not Windows Precision-enabled unit. Furthermore, it doesn"t click down anywhere. It has two buttons integrated at the bottom for left & right clicks. The sound of clicks is also a bit audible.

This touchpad will surely not help you in gaming. For that, you need to lớn buy a dedicated gaming mouse.

Fingerprints on the Smooth Surface

*

After using it continuously for a week, I found that the surface of this máy vi tính attracts fingerprints. But, you can easily clean it using a micro-fiber cloth. In addition to lớn that, unlike Alienware m15 R2 gaming laptop, I found no change in surface color over the use. In Alienware’s trắng version, I found it was getting slightly yellowish at some of the parts.

RAM

This Acer Aspire 3 A315-57G máy vi tính is equipped with an 8GB of 2666MHz DDR4 RAM. Out of 8GB RAM, 4GB is a soldered RAM that you cannot upgrade. And, the remaining 4GB of RAM is upgradeable lớn 20GB of maximum.

So, A quite big amount of RAM Acer is giving to you for smoother & better multitasking. See below the other laptops that allow you lớn upgrade the RAM.

Processor và Graphics

The intel Ice Lake series vi xử lý core i5-1035G1 processor và an NVIDIA MX330 Graphics is responsible for the great performance of this Acer Aspire 3 A315-57G laptop.

So, let’s kiểm tra some of the benchmarks to lớn see where this máy tính xách tay stands in terms of specs.

Cinebench R20 Score

Here, I took 3 runs of Cinebench on this máy vi tính and shown the average of it. Cinebench is a tool khổng lồ measure the single & multi-core scores of the CPU. In this Acer Aspire 3 A315-57G laptop, I can vì CPU undervolting because of the dedicated NVIDIA MX330 GPU.

*

The Cinebench R20 thử nghiệm without a cooling pad has resulted 403 single vi xử lý core score và 1314 multi chip core scores. The same kiểm tra with addition of a cooling pad has raised the CB R20 multi vi xử lý core score to 1315. And, with 0.15v CPU undervolting, the CB R20 multi vi xử lý core score has raised to lớn 1369.

So, it directly tells that the cooling pad is bit helpful whereas the CPU undervolting has raised the multi bộ vi xử lý core score to 1369.

Now, the question is what these scores tell?

First of all, During the testing, Cinebench R20 puts an excessive load on the CPU to execute the tasks. By doing so, it will kiểm tra the machine’s cooling solution also which other tool doesn’t except for 3DMark. So, when the CPU comes under a heavy load, thermal throttling takes place in the processor and it reduces the performance.

For example, If your CPU has a max clock tốc độ of 4.5GHz, then you will reach 4.1GHz max during gaming or găng tests. The reason for not picking up the limit is thermal throttling. So, If the Cinebench R20 score of the máy vi tính is high means the máy tính has a high powerful CPU with better thermal management.

Now, let’s check Geekbench benchmarks.

Geekbench 5 Score

*

When tested this Acer Aspire 3 A315-57G máy tính using Geekbench 5, I found this máy tính xách tay has scored 1041 for single-core và 3687 for multi-core.

Now, what does this score tell?

It tells the performance of the laptop. The higher the score, the higher the performance. Here, you have khổng lồ consider the multi-core score. Look, Geekbench doesn’t put an excessive load on the CPU lượt thích Cinebench R20. And, Geekbench considers mainly productivity tasks lượt thích emailing, browsing, multitasking, & etc to lớn evaluate the hardware.

And, such ways cannot give you an idea about the cooling solution. Because tiny tasks don’t make much weight on the CPU. Hence, If the máy tính xách tay has a higher Geekbench multi-core score means its capability for productivity is much better. But, at the same time, information about thermal throttling and the cooling solution will remain unanswered by this tool.

Hence, for gamers and programmers, Geekbench isn’t a tool khổng lồ evaluate the laptop. It’s better to consider Cinebench here. And, for normal users or office users, this one seems lớn be getting the job done.

Average CPU và GPU Clock Speed

*

To kiểm tra the CPU và GPU clock speeds, I have used AIDA64 tool.

In a bít tất tay test at an tự động fan without a cooling pad, the CPU and GPU clock speeds were 2841MHz and 1249MHz, respectively. The same demo with a cooling pad has raised the CPU tốc độ by 8MHz và kept GPU clock tốc độ same at 1249MHz. So, no noticeable change has been observed.

But, with 0.15v CPU UV, the CPU clock speed was increased khổng lồ 3267MHz & GPU to 1257MHz. It clearly indicates that the use of a cooling pad for this máy tính xách tay is useless. But, I found CPU undervolting helpful for this laptop. Hence, only buy it if you’re about to waste your money.

Furthermore, this Acer Aspire 3 A315-57G máy vi tính is not a dedicated gaming laptop. So, TDP (Thermal design Power) measurement isn"t necessary here as it won"t make an influence on the office-level uses. So, it’s void to measure. Hence, for a non-gaming máy tính like this one, I have skipped such a test.

Video Editing Performance

The clip editing performance of this máy tính xách tay was tested by two ways.

Average of the đoạn clip export timeMultitasking during video clip export

Average of the video clip export time

In this test, I have exported the 16 minutes and 13 seconds long video on YouTube 4K H.264 preset using Adobe Premier CC. & I have repeated the same demo 4 times further lớn show you the average result.

*

So, during my kiểm tra of clip export in 4K preset, the Acer has ended up in on average trăng tròn minutes & 51 seconds. That’s too much.

Multitasking during video export

The motive khổng lồ conduct this thử nghiệm wasn’t other than to rate the smoothness of this máy tính xách tay when the CPU is busy with intense work. I have checked the following during the video export, the touchpad, keyboard, và laptop’s response time.

But, I found this máy vi tính almost smooth. But, lớn be frank, Lenovo IdeaPad L340 was much smoother than this one.

Thermal Performance

Average CPU và GPU temperature

This chạy thử was performed to tell you whether the CPU undervolting và cooling pad are efficient in temperature reduction with stable or increased performance. For the stress test, I have used the AIDA64 tool. So, the results are in the below image.

*
At idle: The CPU & GPU temperatures were 48 và 49 degrees Celsius.During găng tay test at tự động fan: The CPU temperature was raised lớn 81 degrees C & GPU to lớn 72 degrees C.With addition of a cooling pad: The CPU temp was reduced by 2 degrees C whereas GPU temp was unchanged.With 0.15v CPU undervolting: The CPU temp was further reduced to 76.1 degrees C and GPU khổng lồ 69.4 degrees C.

So, the CPU undervolting is found khổng lồ be worthy in this Acer Aspire 3 A315-57G laptop. However, the cooling pad also contributed little small reduction but that’s not useful.

Laptop’s Exterior Temperature

At idle at an tự động hóa fan, the exterior was near khổng lồ mid 30 C – a pretty cool.

During the áp lực test at the tự động hóa fan, the palm rest was found cool lớn touch. The middle of the keyboard was at mid 45 C. The sides of the middle of the keyboard were found less hot compared khổng lồ the middle part. The exterior above the function keys was a bit hotter to lớn touch. Furthermore, there was no difference between the QWERTY part & other keys in terms of temperature.

During the same thử nghiệm with a cooling pad, I found nearly similar results that I have got without it. It was a little cool to lớn touch.

Fans Noise Emission

*

At idle, the single fan of this Acer Aspire 3 A315-57G máy vi tính has emitted 34.3dB of noise which is not even heard. During the stress test at an auto fan, the màn chơi was increased to lớn 48.7dB.

In addition khổng lồ that, the gaming laptops like Lenovo Legion 7i, Dell Alienware m15 R2, MSI GS65 Stealth-004, and like have more noisy fans than this one. The noise màn chơi during gaming at performance mode increases to 60dB. And, that’s become equal lớn the noise emitted by a washing machine, hairdryer, và electric toothbrush.

But, such scenario is not the case with this laptop.

Camera & Microphone

The 720p camera & microphone are placed at the top bezel of Acer Aspire 3 A315-57G display. When I have tested both outdoor, I found both are below-average in quality. I have rated both of them 3/10. In addition, I can"t expect Windows Hello tư vấn here for camera.

Acer could equip at least an average quality camera và a microphone.

Speakers

The 2 speakers are located on the sides underneath the laptop. Hey are below average at maximum volume và a bit tiny with a little bass present. In addition khổng lồ that, while watching the YouTube video, Digitech’s sound cấp độ meter has measured the sound. The sound level was 78dB and changing around it.

Ports on Acer Aspire 3 A315-57G laptop

1 nguồn input1 Ethernet (RJ-45)1 HDMI 2.02 USB 3.1 Type-A Gen-1

Right Side

1 3.5mm Audio/combo jack1 USB 2.01 Kensington lock

Backside

There"s nothing on the backside of this Aspire 5 máy tính xách tay except air exhausts. It looks like Acer isn"t interested khổng lồ put anything there unlike Lenovo in their Legion series gaming laptops.

Air Intake Vents

This Acer Aspire 5 A315-57G máy tính xách tay got too many air intake vents on its back cover. Acer might put them khổng lồ let the cool air enter to cool the máy tính xách tay down possibly, but my tests have revealed very different results. When I have used the cooling pad during the găng tay test, It has shown near to lớn zero effect.

And, it"s not surprising that having a lot of air intake vents actually cool down the laptop. All of the cooling solutions of the máy tính xách tay depends on the fans and the heat pipes. In addition to that, the CPU thermal paste also plays a major role in this case.

Battery

*

The 36Wh battery is powering this Acer Aspire 5 A514-52G máy tính and lasted for 42 minutes during continuous stress tests using AIDA64. And, 4 hours và 21 minutes on YouTube Watching at 1/2 of screen brightness, keyboard backlighting turned off, and background apps disabled.

Gaming Benchmarks

Here are the gaming benchmarks. I have tested PC games at maximum-settings for half an hour.
