Galaxy Book (2021) in review: The affordable Samsung notebook for office users

With long battery life. Samsung has been producing notebooks again since last year and now also places them in the cheaper price segment with the Galaxy Book (2021). The build quality and the equipment are good at first glance. However, we will clarify what is actually offered in everyday use in our review.

Samsung Galaxy Book

While the Samsung Galaxy Book Ion and the Samsung Galaxy Book S were offered for prices of over 1,000 Euros (~$1182) when they were released, the Samsung Galaxy Book is available for much less depending on the configuration. Our test configuration comes with an Intel Core i5-1135G7 with integrated Intel Iris Xe Graphics G7 as well as 8 GB of RAM and a 512 GB SSD.

However, with a price of around 900 Euros (~$1064), the Galaxy Book also has numerous competitors, of which we have selected the models below for comparison in this review. However, other notebooks from our database can also be added under each section.

Case - Sturdy notebook from Samsung

Samsung manufactures the case of the Galaxy Book from aluminum, which makes the device very torsion-resistant and robust. This also applies to the lid, which does not bend even when it is only opened with one hand. The maximum opening angle is 180 degrees.

Thanks to very narrow screen edges, the footprint of the Galaxy Book is smaller than that of the other notebooks in our test field. The weight of 1.6 kg (~3.5 lb) is also the lowest among the comparison devices we chose.

Equipment - Fast Wi-Fi in the office laptop

Samsung's Galaxy Book has a selection of common ports. The two USB-C ports stand out, although one of them is required for connecting the power cord. However, additional connections can be established with a corresponding docking station.

Communication

The Samsung Galaxy Book (2021) can establish wireless connections via Bluetooth 5.2 and WiFi 6. With our reference router Netgear Nighthawk AX12, very good speeds of 1,462 MBit/s on average are achieved when transmitting data and 1,623 MBit/s when receiving data. This result is enough for one of the upper places in our test field.

The Galaxy Book is also available with LTE in an optional configuration.

Webcam

Like most notebook manufacturers, Samsung only installs a low-resolution 0.9 MP webcam. The picture quality is correspondingly mediocre.

Accessories

The Galaxy Book comes with a matching USB-C power adapter.

Maintenance

Four screws are hidden under the rubber feet on the bottom of the Galaxy Book. However, the latter can be removed easily and are only plugged in, which means that no glue or similar has to be replaced. Once the screws are removed, the bottom can only be removed with a lot of patience. Inside, the WLAN module and the working memory are soldered, but two SSDs can be inserted or the existing SSD can be replaced.

Warranty

Samsung grants a warranty period of 24 months for the Galaxy Book.

Input devices - Large touchpad and number pad

Keyboard

The keyboard of the Samsung notebook offers a very flat stroke and a noticeable pressure point. It takes a short time to get used to typing on the keyboard, but after that typing is easy. The arrow keys are a bit small, and Samsung has included a number pad on the keyboard.

The power button is located on the upper right and is not marked separately. However, it is not possible to accidentally press the button due to the tighter casing. A backlight is not available.

Touchpad

Samsung uses a relatively large clickpad as a mouse replacement. It is well suited for navigating the mouse pointer and responds reliably to inputs triggered via touch. Mouse clicks triggered by mechanical pressure are also registered without problems.

According to our measurements, the contrast ratio of the Galaxy Book is a bit low at 730:1 and the black value is a bit high at 0.445 cd/m². As a result, colors do not appear very well delineated and black image content gets a gray haze.

The CalMAN analysis also shows that colors are displayed with too high a blue content.

Display Response Times

Display response times show how fast the screen is able to change from one color to the next. Slow response times can lead to afterimages and can cause moving objects to appear blurry (ghosting). Gamers of fast-paced 3D titles should pay special attention to fast response times.
       Response Time Black to White
22 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 12 ms rise
↘ 10 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 31 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is similar to the average of all tested devices (23.9 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
29 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 13 ms rise
↘ 16 ms fall
The screen shows relatively slow response rates in our tests and may be too slow for gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 22 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (37.8 ms).

Screen Flickering / PWM (Pulse-Width Modulation)

To dim the screen, some notebooks will simply cycle the backlight on and off in rapid succession - a method called Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) . This cycling frequency should ideally be undetectable to the human eye. If said frequency is too low, users with sensitive eyes may experience strain or headaches or even notice the flickering altogether.
Screen flickering / PWM not detected

In comparison: 52 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 15366 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 2500000) Hz was measured.

The IPS panel of the Galaxy Book is very viewing-angle stable. Content can be displayed even from flat angles without being distorted or displayed with incorrect colors.

Performance - Stable performance even over longer periods of time

Samsung offers the Galaxy Book with different hardware configurations. All of them are suitable for office use and rely on a modern Intel Tiger Lake CPU and its internal graphics unit for displaying image content. There are also differences in the installed mass storage. The working memory is limited to 8 GB and is only 16 GB in the LTE version.

Processor

The Intel Core i5-1135G7 used here is a quad-core processor that can process up to eight tasks simultaneously. The clock rates are between 2.4 and 4.2 GHz, whereby the cooling system and the set TDP value are largely responsible for the performance. The latter is set generously with a short-term value (PL1) of 32 watts and a long-term value (PL2) of 31.5 watts.

As our Cinebench R15 continuous load test shows, the CPU in the Samsung notebook can maintain its performance evenly over a long period. Both here and in the individual benchmarks, results in the upper midfield are achieved among the competing devices we chose. Here, especially the Lenovo ThinkBook 15 Gen2 shows a similar, but always slightly better performance.

System performance

In the PCMark 10 test for evaluating the system performance, the Samsung Galaxy Book achieves second place in our test field. The high digital content creation rate is particularly impressive in the individual disciplines. The system always runs smoothly in everyday use and does not exhibit any micro-stutters or the like. However, here again the Lenovo ThinkBook 15 Gen2 is the somewhat stronger notebook.

The performance of other notebooks in comparison can be seen in our CPU benchmark list.

Graphics card

In the Samsung Galaxy Book (2021) the internal graphics unit Intel Iris Xe Graphics G7 with 80 EUs is responsible for displaying image content. Its performance depends on the notebook's installed working memory and benefits from fast RAM in a dual-channel configuration, which is the case here.

The results of the 3DMark benchmarks are correspondingly good. Samsung's notebook can place itself ahead of our test field in every single discipline. For everyday use, this means that even simple image and video editing can be performed without problems. Our GPU benchmark list shows how other graphics cards compare to this.

Gaming performance

The performance of the Intel Iris Xe Graphics G7 is only sufficient for games that are a bit older or only have low demands on the graphics performance. Therefore, both the detail levels and the resolution have to be reduced, sometimes significantly, for smooth frame rates.

What kind of gaming performance can be expected in different titles can be seen in our GPU games list.

In simple operation with office applications and browser tasks, the Samsung Galaxy Book is mostly silent. However, the fan can reach a noise level of up to 45.7 dB(A) under load. Thus, the notebook is clearly audible, but usually only emits a steady noise. We rarely noticed a somewhat high-frequency fan noise. We did not notice any other background noise, such as coil whine or similar.

Temperature

Stress test
Stress test

According to our measurements, the surfaces of the Galaxy Book heat up to 44.8 °C (112.64 °F). The warmest point is at the lower left corner in the rear area of the Samsung laptop. The temperatures of the palm rests, on the other hand, remain moderate, so there are no restrictions due to excessive heat development.

The temperatures inside the Galaxy Book rose to up to 81 °C (177.8 °F) during our approximately one-hour long-term stress test. The clock rates dropped to an average of about 2 GHz, which is just below the base clock. However, the system could be used smoothly at all times, which is why we do not have to reckon with restrictions due to excessive heat development.
