Samsung Galaxy Book review

 

Samsung has addressed everything that was wrong with 2016's Tab Pro S and made a decent 2-in-1 laptop. But pitted against Microsoft and Huawei, does it make a case for itself?

Samsung has undoubtedly made a better product than last year’s Tab Pro S, but it’s still found wanting. The plastic build is unforgivable at this price point and while performance is decent, it’s not a product that is all that compelling to use.

Samsung Galaxy Book (12-inch) review

 

The Samsung Galaxy Book rightfully belongs on the quickly growing list of impressive Microsoft Surface Pro contenders.

The Samsung Galaxy Book has an excellent screen, strong performance and long battery life. For a 12-inch tablet, it's compact. A keyboard cover and stylus are both included.

It can get hot if multitasking for a long time. The keyboard case is wobbly if not sitting on a sturdy surface. The kickstand situation isn't as solid as the Surface's.

The Samsung Galaxy book beats the Surface on value by including a keyboard cover and stylus in the box, but the Surface's design is still much more refined.

Samsung Galaxy Book 12-inch review

The Samsung Galaxy Book is a high end tablet that is looking to take on the Apple iPad Pro and Microsoft Surface Pro. Unlike those two, it has a secret weapon - the keyboard is included, in theory giving you everything you need for that tablet/laptop...

Samsung Galaxy Book 12in review

 

Samsung's best hybrid yet, but still lagging behind the best of the bunch

Superb screen; Keyboard and stylus included; Thin and light

Pricey for its performance and quality; Average battery life

Although it fixes most of the issues of its 10.6in sibling, the 12in Galaxy Book markets itself too closely against the Surface Pro, which only serves to highlight its limitations. While the best of Galaxy Book range by far, performance and build...

Samsung Galaxy Book2 review: Your workday just got longer... but in a good way

 

With a Qualcomm mobile chipset inside made for Windows PCs, this tablet is a glimpse at the future of work devices.

The Samsung Galaxy Book2 successfully borrows the Microsoft Surface Pro design formula, while adding long battery life and Gigabit LTE wireless. Its $1,000 price includes its backlit keyboard cover and S Pen.

The Galaxy Book2's processing performance, while improved from earlier Qualcomm Windows PCs, is still behind Intel Core i-series PCs.

The Samsung Galaxy Book2 is a clear-cut example of the always-on, always connected future of PCs. If you want to work anywhere at anytime and don't mind adding a device to your data plan, it's worth consideration.

Samsung Galaxy Book 2 review: the Surface Amateur

 

Samsung's latest 2-in-1 has a lot of promise, but it comes up short

Thin and light design ; Long battery life ; Integrated LTE ; Keyboard and pen are included

Windows 10 on ARM still has program compatibility issues ; 4GB of RAM is limiting ; The processor isn’t powerful enough for demanding work

Samsung may have come the closest to making my dream computer, but the Book 2 just doesn’t have enough of the pro I need to be my everyday computer.

Samsung's new tablet looks like an iPad, acts like a Surface

 

Samsung's Galaxy Book challenges Microsoft for the two-in-one title, but it's off to a wobbly start.

The Samsung Galaxy Book has an excellent screen, strong performance and long battery life. For a 12-inch tablet, it's compact. A keyboard cover and stylus are both included.

It can get hot if multitasking for a long time. The keyboard case is wobbly if not sitting on a sturdy surface. The kickstand situation isn't as solid as the Surface's.

Samsung Galaxy Book (12-Inch, LTE)

 

Samsung's Galaxy Book is a high-end 2-in-1 convertible with a gorgeous Super AMOLED screen and category-leading battery life. But it could use a bump up in memory and storage to merit its $1,300 price tag.

14 hours of battery life. Very thin and light. 2,160-by-1,440 Super AMOLED screen is sharp and brilliant. 4G LTE connectivity. Keyboard cover and S Pen are bundled.

4GB of RAM and 128GB SSD. Lacks a kickstand. USB Type A adapter is not included. Pen storage is flimsy. No Windows Hello or fingerprint security support.

The Samsung Galaxy Book has a top-notch screen and category-leading battery life, but several shortcomings hold it back when compared with other laptop-replacement tablets. There is no excuse for 4GB of RAM and a 128GB SSD when you're paying more than...
