Still doesn't answer the question though does it? Doesn't even state if the LG Gram lasted 24 hours so it's a pointless comparison imo. Without an answer yes or no the article is pretty much clickbait.

EILI5 - asus claim 24hrs due to battery capacity 72wh. Test show its only 5hrs and also made comparison to another laptop with similar capacity but found that LG perform better. Hence, possible difference be due to screen tech.

My point being the 24 hour thing is just for Asus and can be tested independently. By comparing the 5.5 hour and the 8 hour only serves to tell us that it's worse than the LG, it does not tell us whether it can really do 24 hour because the LG wasn't tested for 24 hour either.

Perhaps a more suitable test would be to charge the Asus to full, install Batterybar, do light productivity tasks for an hour, see how much capacity is drained then extrapolate the results to see how many hours it would last.
