Reviews for the Samsung QX412-S01DE
Sneaker. Without a drum roll or any clamour from the market, a familiar face sneaks into the virtual shelves in a larger form factor. The 14-incher combines the best materials and potent performance with perfect ergonomics and battery life. Is it the jack of all trades device?
