The Samsung Galaxy Book Flex 15 is a blue bombshell with a bright QLED display, but suffers from an oddly placed fingerprint scanner and half-sized Shift key.

The Samsung Galaxy Book Flex is a device with a lot of potential – a gorgeous display and excellent battery life would make it a desirable device. But a few odd design choices make it hard to recommend.

Besides our not knowing how the retail version will perform, the Galaxy Book Flex does have some flakiness around the S Pen air-gesture feature, and an uncomfortable keyboard. But there are also plenty of positives. Innovative features like the S Pen stylus itself and wireless charging are unobtrusive enough that you can ignore them if you don't need them, and they don't hurt the laptop's impressive track record in the crucial areas of build quality, weight, and price. Overall, the Galaxy Book Flex is shaping up to be an excellent 2-in-1 convertible laptop.

Throughout this Samsung Galaxy Book Flex review, I've been impressed more often than not. Amazing battery life and decent 10th Gen Core i7 performance combine for a 15-inch laptop that is made for work, while its built-in S-Pen is a boon for the creative class.
