Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy Book Flex 13.3
The Samsung Galaxy Book Flex 13.3 features a fancy aluminum case and a bright touchscreen. But the Windows convertible has to prove in our test that its inner components are convincing too.

The Galaxy Book Flex is an ambitious step into the world of convertibles for Samsung, but it’s done an excellent job. The 1080p OLED screen is just as excellent as you’d expect from a Samsung device, while the tiny bezels make it much more compact than most 13in laptops. Having the option to flip the screen a full 360 degrees is welcome, but it does mean the hinge is a bit more unstable than hoped. However, that feels like a minor point, especially when performance is so solid and it has such great battery life. There’s even a decent webcam for working from home, although it doesn’t support Windows Hello for face unlock. However, the superb physical fingerprint scanner more than makes up for it. The Flex can’t rival high-end laptops on internals, but for most people, this can be a great everyday laptop for many years to come.
