Samsung Galaxy Book Pro 360 13" in review: Samsung's new business class for convertibles

A convertible with endurance, is the Samsung Galaxy Book Pro 360 13 with up to 31 hours on battery power. The 3-in-1 laptop weighing just over one kilogram (~2.2 lb) is also well equipped. However, the developers had to make some restrictions in terms of cooling for the slim design.
Marc Herter, 👁 Sebastian Jentsch, Brian Burriston (translated by DeepL / Ninh Duy), 🇩🇪 🇳🇱 ...

With the Galaxy Book Pro 360 devices, Samsung introduces another convertible series to the Galaxy-Book series. Longer battery runtimes, new practical features and a dignified design are supposed to form the new business class. Unfortunately, with all the improvements, compared to the Galaxy Book Flex the possibility to store the S-Pen in the device has been lost. The computing power provided by the new Intel Core i5-1135G7 is a lot better than that of the 1035G4 of the "predecessor" and can keep up with the competition, but is still affected by heat buildup.

In the 13.3-inch format, the Galaxy Book Pro 360 is only available in the present configuration with a current i5 processor, 8 GB working memory and 256 GB SSD. The competition of 13- to 14-inch convertibles and detachables, like the MSI Summit E13 Flip Evo, the Dell Latitude 13 7320, the HP EliteBook Dragonfly Max Convertible or the HP Spectre x360 13, rely on a very similar hardware configuration. However, Lenovo also offers current Ryzen 5 and 7 mobile processors in some models of the IdeaPad Flex series and the Yoga series.

Case - Can it be a bit flatter?

Samsung's Galaxy Book Pro 360 looks like it is made of one piece of aluminum. The main design feature is certainly how incredibly thin the device is. The screen is less than 3 mm (~0.12 in) thin and still looks sturdy. When the laptop is placed flat on a table, it is very comfortable to use the S-Pen. As a tablet, the convertible is barely thicker than an Amazon Fire 8 at 13.5 mm (~0.53 in). Except for the two cutouts for the WLAN antennas on the bottom, the entire casing is made of aluminum. These two plastic parts are so well matched in color to the surrounding metal that hardly any difference is visible. All gap dimensions on the device are so small that they are hardly noticeable.

The S Pen can be magnetically attached to the case in different places. However, this also means that there are many areas where bank cards or other cards with magnetic stripes should not be placed. There are magnetic surfaces on the left and right of the touchpad.

The Galaxy Book Pro 360 is small and light compared to many other convertibles in our database. Only Dell's Latitude 13 7320 Detachable is thinner than the Samsung convertible with similar equipment.

Equipment - Thunderbolt 4.0 expands the functionality of the Galaxy Book considerably

Samsung does without USB Type-A ports in the Galaxy Book Pro 360. The three USB Type-C ports are simply more space-saving and integrate better into the slim design. Unfortunately, it will probably be necessary to carry at least a USB-C to USB-A adapter in everyday use. However, the Thunderbolt 4.0-capable USB-C port makes it possible to connect a docking station with screens and other devices. Samsung has also installed a 3.5 mm jack on the right for connecting headsets. Furthermore, there is also a microSD card slot that is connected to the system via USB 2.0.

SD card reader

The built-in SD card reader is very slow in the test with the AV PRO microSD 128 GB memory card due to the USB 2.0 connection. The Samsung laptop cannot keep up with the rivals' rates.

Communication

The WLAN module is not replaceable.
The WLAN module is not replaceable.

The Intel AX210D2W wireless module provides Bluetooth 5.0 and Wi-Fi 6 in Samsung's Galaxy Book Pro 360. The laptop was not quite convincing in the Wi-Fi test, at least not when sending data. However, the convertible shows a very good speed in the receive direction. The same wireless module delivers worse rates in MSI's Summit Evo.

Webcam

Despite the small amount of space above the screen, the 0.9 MP camera of the Samsung convertible is at least reasonably sharp, high-contrast and noise-free in appropriate lighting. The camera's color reproduction is still poor, but within the usual range for notebook webcams.

Security

A fingerprint sensor is installed in the power button of the Galaxy Book Pro 360, which works quickly and reliably. The Intel Core i5-1135G7 supports many current security features like TPM 2.0, Intel Boot Guard and others. Thus, the Samsung convertible can be well protected against unauthorized access.

The fingerprint sensor is integrated into the power button.

Accessories in the plastic-free box of the Galaxy Book Pro 360

Samsung includes a 65 W USB-C power adapter, a 2 m (~6.6 ft) USB-C cable, and an S Pen stylus in the plastic-free box of the convertible.

Samsung offers the multiport adapter EE-P5400 as an optional accessory which can be connected via Thunderbolt 4.0. However, the docking station cannot do more than cheaper devices on Amazon for 99 € (~$118). The Dockteck 7-in-1 Hub costs on Amazon only around 50 € (~$60) and even has a very fast SD card reader built in. With the money saved, you could additionally buy a 65 W USB-C-PD power adapter from Anker to give the notebook a permanent place on the desk without having to change anything.

Software

The computer comes with Windows 10 Home Edition and a variety of pre-installed Samsung apps. Some of them are certainly more useful than others. However, all apps can be uninstalled and accessed via the Microsoft Store at a later time. Many of the Samsung apps are only fully usable when a Samsung account and other Samsung devices with Windows or Android operating systems are present.

Instruction manual

A complete user manual can be downloaded from Samsung (PDF). However, some of the important information is very imprecise or simply missing. For example, the manual does not mention if and where the S-Pen can be attached or stowed. On the other hand, there are also some nonsensical instructions, such as how to safely handle lasers from CD and DVD drives. (page 103)

Maintenance

The four PH00 cross-slotted case screws that hold the baseplate in place are hidden by the four rubber feet. After removing these, it is not easy to remove the plate. Using a plastic opening tool, it was not possible to get into the tight crevices to pry out the case clips. However, a strong suction cup and a lot of traction made them give way, so the panel could be removed. Inside the Samsung laptop, however, there are few end-user replaceable or serviceable parts. Actually, only the M.2 SSD can be replaced. Even the fan is so small that cleaning is difficult.

When assembling, note that the rubber feet at the back are slightly thicker than those at the front.

The M.2 SSD is additionally secured with an adhesive foil.

Warranty

Samsung offers a two-year warranty on workmanship and material for the Galaxy Book Pro 360. Furthermore, battery, power adapter and USB-C cable are covered by a one-year warranty. If you buy the convertible via Samsung's website, you can also add the Care+ service plan for a one-time fee of 79.00 € (~$94). Accidental damage is also covered for the first two years.

Input devices - Samsung hardly leaves anything to be desired

The backlight is pleasantly even.
The backlight is pleasantly even.

Keyboard

The three-stage illuminated keyboard of the Galaxy Book Pro has normal-sized keys (15 mm x 17 mm), but the key drop and pressure resistance are so low that it takes some practice before you can type halfway reasonably with the keyboard. The haptic feedback of the keyboard is too low. Here, the flat design is contrary to the function, because the key drop is not even one millimeter.

Touchpad

The 5-point clickpad is almost too sensitive on factory settings when implementing gestures on the sensor surface. The fingers glide very well over its surface. The palm recognition also worked well in the test.

S Pen

Samsung's S Pen offers 4,096 pressure levels and has a position sensor, so the drawing point is always very accurate under the tip of the stylus. In addition, the position sensor allows changing the stroke shape depending on the holding angle in many applications. The detection distance of 1.5 cm (~0.6 in) is a bit small, so you have to be careful not to trigger the touchscreen when placing your hand on the screen. The pen's low weight of only 7 grams (~0.25 oz) makes it easy to work with.

Unfortunately, the pen has a small weakness. If you put it down on the display, an input is recognized and, for example, spots form on the picture you just drew. Ctrl+Z undoes the stain, but it is still annoying that the pen "runs out". Fortunately, the pen can be magnetically attached to the Galaxy Book Pro 360 in various places. We found the following places:

  • on the hinges
  • on the top of the back of the screen
  • left and right of the mouse pad
  • on the underside between the front feet
  • as an "antenna" on the right and left above the screen

Touchscreen

The 10-finger multi-touch screen also works very well in Samsung's Galaxy Book Pro 360. Touching the screen feels latency-free. There are no deviations of the inputs at any point on the screen.

Display - The AMOLED display looks great

Screen at set brightness from 100 % to 10 % (exposure time 1/6000 s corresponds to 1% of the display duration of one frame)

The Full HD AMOLED display of the Galaxy Book Pro 360 is well done. Rich colors and contrasts are the features of Samsung's display technology. The glossy display surface does not really disturb the overall picture due to the high screen brightness of 298 cd/m². Unfortunately, the flickering of OLED screens in the refresh rate (60 Hz in this case) is also evident in Samsung's picture panel. When updating the displayed image, a narrow area of the image is briefly turned off in most OLED drive modes. Depending on the brightness setting, more or wider stripes also go dark. However, flickering is a bit easier on the eyes than PWM controlled backlighting because the whole display doesn't go dark in the process.

Due to the display technology used, there is no screen bleeding or similar spots on the Samsung notebook. Black is black and white is white as far as this display is concerned.

With almost 100% AdobeRGB and DisplayP3 coverage and a good calibration ex-factory, the display is also well suited for creative minds, especially since the color space representation can be adjusted via the Samsung Settings app. The color space coverage was measured in the AMOLED native profile. Thanks to the high contrast ratio of 28700:1, even dark picture areas come into their own. The display is also HDR-capable.

The display is also easy to read in the sun

Samsung's display is actually not particularly bright, but it can be read well in the sun thanks to the high contrast. Reflections on the display glass can still be a bit annoying depending on the background.

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
2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 1 ms rise
↘ 1 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 0 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (23.9 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 1 ms rise

The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.8 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 0 % 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 detected 60 Hz ≤ 90 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 60 Hz (Likely utilizing PWM) Flickering detected at a brightness setting of 90 % and below. There should be no flickering or PWM above this brightness setting.

The frequency of 60 Hz is very low, so the flickering may cause eyestrain and headaches after extended use.

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.

Viewed from all directions, the display's colors do not change. Only the brightness decreases with increasing viewing angles. However, the brightness decrease is not so strong that it could be called disturbing. The change is much more noticeable in the camera image than with the naked eye.

Performance - standard for 13-inch convertibles

The Samsung Galaxy Book Pro 360 with a 13-inch screen is so far only available with an Intel Core i5-1135G7 processor, 8 GB DDR 4 working memory and 256 GB NVMe SSD. In the 15-inch variant, there is also the option of an i7 processor with 16 GB of working memory and 512 GB SSD.

There is no dedicated graphics card in any of the configuration options. The Intel Iris Xe Graphics with 80 EUs (96 EUs for the i7) integrated in the processor takes over all graphics tasks here. Thus, the convertible is only suitable for computer games to a limited extent.

Some settings can be adjusted in Samsung's Settings app to adapt the available performance or the fan's volume to the user's preferences. For the benchmarks, "High performance" was selected as the setting. The different settings influence the PL1 of the Intel Core i5-1135G7. At the highest setting, the processor has 22 W available in the long run, and a maximum of 7 W when the fan is turned off. A special feature is the restriction of the performance as soon as the convertible is moved. Samsung wants to reduce the surface temperature as long as the user holds the device.

Processor

The CPU used in the test device Intel Core i5-1135G7 is designed for particularly energy-saving operation and can also manage without active cooling. In the Galaxy Book Pro 15, the energy savings are also clearly evident with very long battery runtimes.

In the Cinebench R15 Loop, the low long-term performance available to the processor is noticeable. Other notebooks score slightly higher in the benchmark with the i5-1135G7 than the Samsung device, but others with an i7-1185G7 also score less. Despite the low PL1, the clock was briefly reduced in the half-hour Cinebench R15 stress test. The processor's performance was very low in "Optimized" mode and became even lower after moving the device. (Optimized loudness settings : Ø417)

In general, the measured values are no surprise, considering how little space is available for the processor cooler.

System performance

Samsung's Galaxy Book Pro 360 performs well to very well in the PCMark 8 and 10 benchmarks. The high Boost performance and the adequate working memory are particularly evident here. Samsung's convertible is sufficient for everyday use. Subjectively, there were no major performance gaps in operation, either.

DPC latencies

While playing our 4K 60Hz YouTube video with the Galaxy Book, only two frames were dropped. However, the latency test with LatencyMon revealed significant DPC latency issues when opening multiple browser tabs. With 5.5 milliseconds, the Galaxy Book Pro 360 is unfortunately clearly behind the competition. Thus, the notebook is rather not suitable for real-time applications.

Mass storage

The installed Samsung PM991 MZVLQ256HAJD SSD is not slow, but it is clearly behind the storage solutions of the contenders in the CristalDiskMark test. AS SSD determines slightly better rates. In our Benchmark table of SSDs and HDDs, the storage device currently ranks 213 and is thus rather mediocre.

Graphics card

The Core i5's integrated Iris Xe Graphics G7 with 80 EUs is well suited for everyday use and can easily handle high-resolution videos. Many games can be played with low to moderate detail settings. The Samsung notebook's graphics performance remains stable even without mains power.

The convertible is not designed for gaming, the focus is clearly on a slim profile and high battery performance. Thus, it is also acceptable that the scores achieved in the benchmarks are not quite as high. Compared with other light convertibles, the graphics performance of the Galaxy Book is quite good.

Noise emissions

Heat sink and fan in the Samsung Galaxy Book Pro 360

The fan can actually be turned off via Samsung's Settings app when using office programs, browsing, and HD video playback. Although the performance of the Galaxy Book Pro 360 is severely limited, it is easily sufficient for such applications. Then you only hear what comes out of the speakers. The volume optimized mode with the use of the microphones is also interesting. The test showed that the Galaxy Book Pro 360 was never louder than its surroundings. The fan also really revs up in loud surroundings in this mode.

However, the high-frequency noise that Samsung's laptop produces with its fan is unpleasant during high system load when the fan is fully revved up. Overall, however, the notebook is not really loud under any circumstances with 40.7 dB(A) at a distance of 15 cm (~5.9 in).
