Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy Book 15, i5-1135G7

60% Samsung Galaxy Book review: A cornucopia of compromises
Source: Digital Trends English
The Samsung Galaxy Book is, as I said at the beginning, a strange laptop. The model I reviewed is aimed at business users, but it doesn’t offer anything out of the box that many consumer laptops don’t also offer. Its biggest strength is solid productivity performance and a thin and light chassis, and while those are welcome to business users, they’re not exactly business-specific features. Most disappointing is the display, which should offer a better experience at the Galaxy Book’s price. Battery life was a mixed bag, with the laptop doing well in the PCMark 10 test but not as well in our other benchmarks. And in terms of look and feel, the laptop is a bit boring and lacks rigidity. There’s just not a lot to recommend this machine over its wide range of competition.

80% Samsung Galaxy Book (2021) review: An enticing new arrival
Source: Laptop Mag English
Samsung is getting good at developing laptops. That’s not to say its past efforts were failures, but it hasn’t quite reached the heights of being a leader in the market like it has with its Samsung Galaxy smartphones. However, the Samsung Galaxy Book 2021 is putting the company on a path to greatness. Not only does its 11th Gen Intel Core i5 processor impress by delivering fantastic overall performance for a $750 laptop, but its decent keyboard, port variety and thin design make it a promising notebook for professionals. With the ARM Exynos processor for laptops Samsung is expected to be working on, it’s exciting to see how the company will make its line of Galaxy Books even better. Still, there are some cogs that need some polishing to make the machine flow. While the laptop’s thin bezels make the most of the 15-inch display, the panel itself is dull. Samsung also needs to do something about their terrible touchpad and webcam, especially if it's promoting the latter by stating it can put on an “impressive video presentation”.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.

74.33%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
