DESIGN & BUILD

There is a considerable difference in between the sizes of both these laptops. Zephyrus G14 is about 14 inches compared to Acer Helios 300 which has a size of 15 inches and is made up of aluminum just like other Acer models. However G14 is constructed out of magnesium and the shine on both the laptops when turned off reflect the history of their design. Both the laptops have HD quality resolution constituting up to 1080pixels. However, Helios shows a better contrast of the displayed images.

Both of the laptops come with the connectivity port containing almost 2-3 type c USB ports along with the Display and HDMI. The sharp features over Zephyrus sometimes seem a bit annoying but the Nvidia G-Sync technology present over here makes the refresh rate of 120Hz run effectively.

DISPLAY & SPEAKERS

With a 1080 pixels resolution, both of the devices are widely used for their efficient graphic qualities. In Zephyrus, the colors seem a bit dingy and distortion appears. The brightness and contrast ration over here is much effective than that of its rival.

Another issue which appears within both is the black light bleed which erupts when analyzed in details. However, it is not so prominently apparent on the screens.

Speakers’ location within both the laptops is almost the same, as they originate from left to the extreme right. However, the difference in between the sound quality is apparent. G14’s speakers are dope in terms of their impressive sound quality and volume controlling features managing the latency rates to a normal.

KEYBOARD & TOUCHPAD

Helios wins this battle without a very tough competition because here we get to see maximum number of keys which are quite bigger in size as compared to the small keys of G14 where you don’t find the up and down keys along with the num lock one. So, if you are used to of having maximum keyboard activity, G14 is not made for you. But, it gives you controls of mic, volume, video speed and several other actions while gaming via its keyboard shortcuts. The white lighting technology is used within G14 which is quite outdated compared to the RGB balancing technology of Helios. Besides, its predator buttons boosts up the fan too.

The touchpads are quite minimalistic in nature and precision drivers are used within both which handle the controls accurately. Helios because of its design is more prone to dust and damage, so the touchpad over here needs to be taken care of compared to the simple G14.

CAMERA & BATTERY LIFE

Sadly G14 comes with no camera which is quite disappointing for all the Zephyrus addicts. On the other hand, its rival comes with a 720MP camera which is not that good because of the blurriness and low microphone quality supporting it.

The battery life in Helios is designed as per a 58Wh which is less than 76WH battery of G14. But, this run time is only an estimate of perfect functionality. With hours of internet surfing and gaming, the batteries might last up to fewer hours per day.

PRICE COMPARISON

The difference in prices is sharp. G14 starts at about $1400 which is much expensive for a gaming laptop while having no advanced features. While Helios $1100 initial price is justified enough because of the features it offers.

FINAL VERDICT

Acer Helios 300 is the winner in between the tussle of these two gaming laptops. The chief reason behind this is its impressive yet suitable premium price coming with a camera, a good RGB management and a keyboard which is nothing but impressive. These features make it the favorite purchase of many of the gamers despite the premium price which easily gets compensated within the number of features it offers.
