Reviews for the Samsung ZX310

Samsung ZX310 review: Hands on
Source: T3 English
Samsung’s includes some impressive performance features on the SX310, which unfortunately we weren’t able to put to the test: including a 12-second Fast Start, three-second start from sleep and battery designed to last three times longer. Choose from 128 and 256GB SSD drives, improving start-up speeds by 60%. There’s no news yet on pricing and availability for the SX310, but from our brief time with the laptop, it’s certainly one of the most stylish laptops we’ve seen. Let’s hope it has the performance to match.

However, in our initial play, the Samsung ZX310 didn't quite seem to have the overall premium quality we might hope for and certainly no where near enough to justify its whopping MSRP of £1,399.

13.3": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.4 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist only few sub-notebooks, which weight less. 10 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
