Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy Book Flex2 NP930QCA-KA2DE

60% Samsung Galaxy Book Flex2 5G review: In need of improvement
Source: Expert Reviews English
On the face of it, the Samsung Galaxy Book Flex2 5G has it all: impressive performance and battery life, a high-resolution camera and 5G capability, plus a built-in stylus and well-made 360-hinge. Its display is excellent and it’s about as slim, light and attractive as 2-in-1 laptops get. Alas, all the good work is undermined by two major issues. The first is the keyboard, which is hugely disappointing; it’s rattly, shallow and the backlight is patchy. And the second is the price, which at £1,649 for the Core i5 model and £1,849 for the Core i7, is very high. For that sort of cash you’d rightly expect perfection, or nigh on it. Alas, the Samsung Galaxy Book Flex2 5G falls a little short of that.

70% Samsung Galaxy Book Flex 2 5G review: A toy-box of features unlike any other
Source: Pocket Lint English
This laptop offers a toy-box of features. It has 5G connectivity, an S-Pen stylus, a QLED screen for added brightness, and a wireless charging touchpad. However, you seem to pay for each and every one, and not all of the laptops basics are handled as well as in some cheaper alternatives. So we're throwing those toys out of the pram.

Samsung has refined and tweaked the Galaxy Book Flex experience to become the most complete convertible laptop you can buy. You’ll need deep pockets, though.

100% Samsung Galaxy Book Flex2 5G review: a premium laptop at a premium price
Source: T3 English
The Samsung Galaxy Book Flex2 5G comes with a high asking price but has plenty to justify it, including an integrated stylus and 5G connectivity. Add in an excellent screen, 11th-gen Intel processors, and a well thought out design, and it's a hard laptop to find fault with.

If you don’t care about 5G and aren’t fussed by the Samsung Galaxy Book Flex2 5G’s S-Pen, this laptop probably isn’t the best option for your money. The HP Spectre X360 gets you better core tech per pound, and if you don’t need a hybrid then the Lenovo Yoga 7 Slim is a great buy.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
