KUU G3 Reviews

KUU G3 Reviews

KUU G3 is an office laptop equipped with AMD Ruilong processor, which KUU withdrew recently. It is divided into two configurations: G3 and G3 pro. G3 uses amd R5 4600h processor and G3 Pro uses amd R7 4800h processor. Its performance is more than twice that of previous KUU laptops. Even now there are amd laptops of Lenovo, HP and other brands on the market. The price of G3 is much better than theirs. So G3 is the best choice for office people.

Of course, except for the GPU part, the appearance of G3 is also amazing. It uses an all metal shell, which is very textured and feels very smooth. In terms of appearance, G3 is no less than traditional brands. There are two type-C full function interfaces on the side of G3. You can do anything with it. You can use it to transfer files, charge, and even charge your phone. This is very cool!

Hat means that it can not only do the work of your standard office laptop and take on demanding projects, but it offers a design aesthetic and feature set that would put most typical laptops to shame. 

Of course, all that glitz comes with a price tag to match. Our model clocks in at $729.

Generally speaking, you can only buy Intel Celeron or old I3 / i5 processor laptops at this price.

But in KUU, you can buy AMD r5-4600h!

This is KUU, a brand that will always stand with consumers and the king of cost performance!

Packing that powerful hardware into such a slender chassis does have its drawbacks, of course. The KUU G3 runs pretty hot, particularly if you’re using it for demanding tasks such as 3D rendering or 4K video editing.

This is no gaming machine either; the lack of a proper graphics card means that the latest big games will be beyond your reach. However, the AMD Radeon™ Graphics can handle more than you might expect at lower resolutions - perfect for puzzle games, or low-poly indie titles.

The drawbacks don’t outweigh the benefits, though - not even close. And these problems really aren’t unique to the KUU G3, either; there’s no laptop lighter than the KUU G3 that can play games better, or manage heat more efficiently. It’s an undeniably top-notch product, and for that we award it five stars.


Straight out of the box, it’s clear that the KUU G3 is a high-quality piece of hardware. The brushed metal finish means the whole laptop feels robust, and the same build quality extends to the namesake 180-degree hinge.

Naturally, weight is a factor here. Despite its sturdy chassis, the KUU G3 is as lightweight as they come, weighing in at just over a kilo. It’s easy to hold in one hand, and the near bezel-less screen means that the overall size is only a little larger than the display itself.

It’s impressively thin, too; perhaps not the absolute thinnest and lightest laptop on the market, but it’s up there with the other major contenders. However, that super-thin design means that there’s limited room for heat management inside the case.

The KUU G3’s cooling is handled by two small fans that sit together on the base of the laptop, and while they do run quietly (unless you’re thrashing the CPU with demanding software), they’re not particularly powerful.

Fortunately, the rest of the design is free of such engineering mishaps. As we said, the screen bezel is practically non-existent, and the display itself is a glorious AMOLED panel. Blacks are black as pitch, while bright colors pop with vibrance and the maximum brightness is great even in well-lit spaces.

The keyboard is also a joy to use, softly backlit in white with nice large keys despite the compact design. There’s no numpad - and the arrow keys are frustratingly truncated - but these are issues that plague almost every 13-inch convertible laptop. The trackpad definitely beats out many of its contemporaries, though, with a wide touch area and satisfyingly firm click.

Physical connectivity is well-handled, with two Thunderbolt 3 enabled USB-C ports and a single USB-A port that opens on a sprung clasp; the port itself is larger than the super-thin edge of the laptop, so it snaps shut when not in use. It’s a nifty bit of design that we’ve seen before, but rarely done this well.


AMD Ryzen laptop CPUs pull their weight and then some, so pairing one with a solid 16GB of high-speed RAM means that the KUU G3 chews up everyday work tasks with ease. Web browsing, streaming videos, and using the Microsoft Office software suite are all smooth and easy to do on the HP Spectre x360.

This laptop isn’t satisfied with just that, of course. More complex tasks like rendering and video encoding are more of an option here thanks to the expanded memory and new, more powerful processor. Of course, if you’re working with high-intensity software on the regular, you might want a system with a more powerful graphics solution.

The AMD Radeon™ Graphics dominated older integrated graphics in our tests, powering through with high scores in our graphical tests compared to previous models. Performance in our Cinebench rendering benchmark wasn’t quite as impressive, but was still good for an ultralight laptop.

Gaming on the KUU G3 is definitely an option too, although only at the decidedly casual end of the spectrum. Recent triple-A releases aren’t likely to run well without severely dropping the resolution and graphical quality, but slightly older games or titles without demanding graphics should run fine. We enjoyed a spot of Tomb Raider and the excellent indie gem FTL: Faster Than Light with good performance at 1080p.

There are some integrated features boasted by the KUU G3 that all fall under one umbrella: privacy. This is the ideal laptop for anyone wary of the risks posed by an online presence, with multiple features designed to keep you and your data secure.

There’s also a fingerprint scanner just below the keyboard, letting you login quickly if you have your fingerprints recorded.



Battery life

Battery life is one of the only areas where the KUU G3 doesn’t outright excel. The battery life is still good; standard use will see it last all work day, around 10 hours, without needing to charge.

The battery does charge quite fast thanks to the USB-C connector, charging from empty to 100% in barely more than an hour. It’s easy to charge while in use, too, thanks to the angled USB-C port ensuring that the power cable won’t get in your way.

Buy it if...

You want lightweight performance

The HP Spectre x360 delivers the best in convertible laptop performance without compromising its ultralight and sleek design. This is a laptop that can handle the sort of tasks that you’d need a desktop PC for five years ago, and it’s awesome.

You need flexibility

Swapping between laptop and tablet modes on the HP Spectre x360 feels like a dream, thanks to the gorgeous 4K touchscreen and robust two-point hinge. With good battery life and the help of Windows 10’s Tablet Mode, this device is as flexible as they come.
