Samsung Galaxy Book S Review | Trusted Reviews

 

The Samsung Galaxy Book S feels like the start of a new laptop generation with a design so small and light that ‘ultrabook' now has a whole new meaning.

Incredibly light and small;Outstanding battery life;Lovely screen;LTE connectivity very handy

Performance only strong enough for basic tasks;Software compatibility issues;Not many ports

Samsung Galaxy Book S review: Super battery life, subpar app access

 

With Qualcomm hardware this Samsung offers superb battery life and 4G connectivity. But the ARM architecture means app limitations, so be cautious.

Super long-lasting battery life ; Ultra-lightweight and slim design ; 4G LTE SIM slot for on-the-go use ; Subtle keyboard backlighting

Qualcomm hardware means app limitations - not everything from Windows Store is functional here ; Screen a little reflective ; Strong competiton in same price bracket

If a long-lasting machine for desk and on-the-go use is exactly what you want, this Samsung is a dream. However, only consider it if you need to do the basics - word processing, Office 365, browsing, videos, and such like - as the Qualcomm hardware...

Samsung Galaxy Book S

 

The Galaxy Book S is officially the longest lasting laptop you can buy, but Windows on Snapdragon isn't quite flawless yet

Samsung Galaxy Book S review: Lighter than air

 

The Samsung Galaxy Book S is a lightweight, long-lasting masterpiece of laptop design – Windows on ARM finally comes of age

Fantastic battery life ; 4G connectivity ; Superb speakers

Mediocre keyboard ; Some Windows apps won’t run

With that in mind, I’d recommend the Windows Surface Laptop 3 13.5in over the Samsung Galaxy Book S for most people, based purely on grounds of performance and compatibility. However, if long battery life and 4G connectivity are imperative there’s...

Samsung Galaxy Book S Review: The First Intel Lakefield Laptop

 

Intel's Lakefield technology is here in a beautiful design, but the Samsung Galaxy Book S is pricey for its performance.

Lightweight, beautiful design ; Vivid, fairly bright display ; Lakefield runs all x86 apps

Way too much pre-loaded software ; Audio is flat ; Pricey for the performance

The Samsung Galaxy S is a beautiful, lightweight ultraportable that can run every program you would expect with Intel's new Lakefield processor, but Samsung has doused it in its software, and you pay a lot for the design.

Samsung Galaxy Book S review: ARMed and dangerous | IT PRO

 

So long, Surface Pro X - Samsung shows us how it's really done

Some x86 compatibility issues still remain

Samsung Galaxy Book S review: Incredible battery life, WWAN options sell this on-the-go PC

 

Samsung's Galaxy Book S laptop uses the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx chip, trading middling performance for a number of features that make on-the-go computing a snap.

Incredibly light, incredibly thin ; Superb 16-hour battery life ; LTE connectivity is designed in out of the box

Snapdragon 8cx processor still requires too many sacrifices ; Keyboard is mediocre

I prefer laptop keyboards with fairly substantial travel, something the Galaxy Book S lacks. Each key is firm and resilient, however, and wide enough to provide a comfortable landing space. The three levels of backlighting (plus off), aren’t...
