Sorry for the late reply. So far everything about the laptop isn't too bad but problems with gaming.

DoTA can run up to 100+ fps but it drops to below 20 after a few minutes and then it goes back up again.
So basically I feel its just a 1d12 MX150 problem..

Trackpad can get wonky sometimes, especially after the laptop becomes slightly warmer..
The screen always gets fingerprint marks cause the bezel quite thin and my fingers kena lah haha.

One thing that annoys me is that everytime I plug in my earpiece, I need to click on an option before sound comes out of it.
Anything else you need to know? Keyboard typing is quite pleasant~

Probably hit thermal limit (which is set really low inside firmware/BIOS - around 75C), causing heavy throttling for a while

But bo bian, in the end now seldom play games.. want to prolong the battery and other components as long as possible.
Keep worrying about new stuff hahaha.

I already undervolted and tried running the gpu at lower clock speed but it doesn't stay there. Around 65C also it throttle sometimes

Maybe VRM throttling?

undervolt also same issues? wondering what is the solution for UX433 frame rate drop..
i noticed that once the resolution were changed, the games seems running smooth without undervolt..
anyone experience this with other model laptop (with MX150)?

my bro Aspire 5 didn't have this issue

I believe most MX150 laptops don't have this issue either unless they have poor cooling

I own the zenbook ux333fn, and overall experience is great.

Touchpad sometime jumpy. But after I upgraded the BIOS from 203 to 301, so far I did not encounter any jumpy touchpad anymore. Maybe it is still there but lesser occurence.

I still don't understand why people complaining about the gaming performance on this laptop. We all know this laptop definitely NOT a gaming laptop, hence please don't expect any good experience in game.

The MX150 GPu is just a "nice to have" things. But don't expect you will have a good exp in gaming just because of that.
To Rate this laptop from gaming perspective is not fair.

Working with Photoshop so far no issue.
Daily browsing and do some office thingy stuff also "you don't say".

This laptop is having a great overall performance per value. Small and compact size is one of my favourite. I can bring my work anywhere even with a small workspace. No regret buying this laptop.

For additional info, the MX150 clockspeed for this zenbook model is lower than the standard MX150 on another laptop.

Thus, lower graphic performance will be expected.

Play around with the Turbo Limits settings in ThrottleStop FIVR (if that's what you're using for UV)? Lowering (well... halving actually) Turbo settings on my Envy 13 (a similar MX150MQ "slim-and-toasty") does help with the throttling on "normal" mode (limit is 60-70c).

And if that fails, you can try turning off Turbo Boost off completely. Sure, you're gonna be stuck at base clocks (and sometimes games load slower as a result) but at least you won't have those annoying throttle "hiccups" that happen with full boost.

However, I do agree with black_orphen in that you've got to remind yourself that these aren't "gaming" laptops we're dealing with in the first place lol. They can't be thin as they are without sacrificing something in return - even with the "slower" ("cooler") Max-Q MX150. Just think of 'em as "kinda-game-capable-with-enough-tweaks" Ultras and you'll be a lot happier.
