Samsung Galaxy Book 12

With half the tablet market chasing after Microsoft’s Surface slate, it is no wonder Samsung has decided to up the ante this year with the Galaxy Book 12, considering last year’s TabPro S failed to wrangle market share from Microsoft. For starters, the Galaxy Book 12 features an AMOLED 3:2 aspect ratio 1440p screen which delivers a very sharp, vibrant and pleasurable viewing experience. This is because Samsung is considered one of the best display manufacturers in the market. Moving on to the heart of the Galaxy Book 12 is its Intel 7th gen Ultra Low Power Core i5-7200U processor which provides a balance of performance and power consumption without sacrificing battery life, along with 8GB of memory which should be more than sufficient for the average business user. Naturally as this is a Windows based tablet it comes pre-installed with Windows 10, however this version of Windows 10 comes integrated with Samsung Flow which interfaces with Windows Hello and allows a biometric log-in with a Bluetooth connected Samsung Galaxy S6 or newer smartphone fingerprint reader. In addition to biometrics Samsung Flow can also load your phone’s notification which is a plus for ecosystem integration. One commendable feature of the Galaxy Book 12 compared to Microsoft’s offering is that by default it ships with Samsung’s keyboard cover and the S pen which is a bonus considering its premium price. Speaking of its input devices, the keyboard is quite enjoyable to type on with decent feedback and is quite suited for extended typing sessions, especially for the target business audience. As for the included S pen, it is quite comfortable in the hand which enables a satisfying writing experience. This can also be attributed to its support for 1024 different pressure levels. Users can also choose the classic Staedler design should they wish to. 
While the features that have been crammed into the case are remarkable, users may also want to consider stability and reliability. In this regard, the case of the Galaxy Book 12 is made of aluminium and quite well built, and the keyboard has a rubberized feel to it. Unfortunately, due to the way it was designed, the inbuilt stand can only be adjusted to 2 positions which limits its use to solid flat surfaces only. As this is a tablet, one should expect excellent battery life to last throughout the average working day. And with up to 11 hours, indeed it more than does. Another notable feature of the Galaxy Book 12 is its support for Fast Charging which allows the tablet to be fully charged in 3 hours thus limiting our dependency on the wall outlet. All things considered, if the user has already an established Samsung ecosystem, the added features might come in handy, but otherwise there is no harm either.

The 12in Galaxy Book is by far the best in the range. It offers a solid 2-in-1 Windows 10-based experience, truly excellent screen performance, and an all-day battery life, with the power to meet most daily work needs. It's an impressive device, and comparable to Microsoft's excellent Surface Pro 4.

Samsung has undoubtedly made a better product than last year’s Tab Pro S, but it’s still found wanting. The plastic build is unforgivable at this price point and while performance is decent, it’s not a product that is all that compelling to use.

We like that the keyboard and S Pen are included in the box, unlike some key rivals. Plus, the screen is downright gorgeous, and the tablet is thin and light, making it excellent for portability. However, it falls short of truly contending with the king of 2-in-1 PC devices, the Surface Pro.

If you’re after a highly portable Windows 10 machine, then something like the Samsung Galaxy Book is going to be right up your alley. It’s super thin — even with the keyboard cover attached — and with built in 4G capability, this is a truly use-anywhere device. There’s a few things that don’t make too much sense, though. The S-Pen truly feels like a little bit of an afterthought and it really isn’t necessary to make the most of out of the Galaxy Book.

The Samsung Galaxy Book is one of those devices that makes it difficult for a review to give a clear recommendation. We can’t definitively say whether or not it’s worth a purchase because that really depends on what you value. There’s a lot to love here. The Super AMOLED screen is nothing short of breathtaking, and you’ll be hard knocked to find a better display on a convertible. Overall performance is quite good and the battery life is acceptable for most use cases. Additionally, the keyboard is one of the best wrap-around peripherals we’ve tried, and the magnetic design is one of the best solutions we’ve tried.

If you're looking for a lightweight 2-in-1, this is a good alternative to the Surface Pro. Between the colorful display and bundled accessories, it's great for watching Netflix, finishing a class project, or fine-tuning that presentation. The 12" model is the more expensive option, but the larger display and higher resolution won't disappoint. Even if you're drowning in open tabs, it shouldn't freeze up on you, thanks to the 7th Gen Intel Core i5 Processor.

Samsung's Galaxy Book doesn't get anything totally wrong. And if it were a few hundred dollars cheaper than the Surface Pro, it could find an audience. But as it is, the good things about the Galaxy Book (its display and overall performance) are come with some big tradeoffs. Battery life in particular has been a big letdown, and though the keyboard cover is better than it was last year, it's still not as good as what Microsoft offers.

Source: iTech Post English
The price of $1,430, for the Core i5 model matched with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, which seems reasonable, especially when comparing it with many of the highly portable to-end laptops now on the market. An all-rounder laptop ideal for professionals who seek a 2-in-1 and who can live with USB-C, this laptop is worth to invest. The Galaxy Book is a real productivity hybrid laptop with the bonus of being flexible and highly portable. It is surely a 2-in-1 that Microsoft will need to worry.

In all aspects, the Samsung Galaxy Book is an improvement over last year’s Galaxy TabPro S. The keyboard is much better, the stylus is much better, the trackpad is much better, the stand is much better, 2 USB-C ports is much better, having a MicroSD card slot is much better… the Super AMOLED screen is about the same, but much better than most other Windows 10 tablet screens. Pricing wise, the Galaxy Book is about on par with other comparable 2-in-1 Windows 10 tablet PCs like the Surface Pro 4 once you factor in the price of a clip on keyboard. Samsung even smartened up about the range of models they’re making available, too. The Galaxy TabPro S was only available in one configuration. With the Galaxy Book, you’ve got 5 options with prices between $629.99 and $1329.99 to fit your budget. It’s great to see Samsung stepping up their Windows 10 tablet game this year and the Galaxy Book is a worthy competitor.

Source: Slashgear English
The selling point of a 2-in-1 is its flexibility. Don’t need to type? Leave the keyboard behind. Need a traditional keyboard and trackpad? Snap them on magnetically. While manufacturers might argue that makes it the best of all worlds, personally, I’d rather have a regular hinge and less likelihood of the two sections of my notebook coming apart. Then again, my typical usage relies heavily on the keyboard, and I’m no digital artist.

80% Samsung Galaxy Book (12-Inch) Review and Ratings
Source: Computer Shopper English
Our biggest reservation about the Samsung Galaxy Book is its $1,329 price. The $1,129 entry-level model is a bit easier to live with on paper, but with just 4GB of RAM, it's tough to argue for if you're planning to do any kind of multitasking (or just keeping more than a few Chrome tabs open). While the Galaxy Book's performance is very good, its screen second to none, and its battery life stellar, upward of $1,300 is a lot to ask for in even the most premium Windows portable these days. And that's doubly true of one that lacks Windows Hello support or a fingerprint reader for secure login.

We had limited time with the Galaxy Book but our first impressions are good. Samsung has definitely improved the obvious flaws of the TabPro S from last year and produced a product that it will market heavily against the upcoming Surface Pro 5.

Samsung claims the Galaxy Book should last up to 12 hours on a charge. But we'll have to get it into our labs to prove that. No pricing or availability have been announced. Stay tuned for a full review when we have it.

Samsung Galaxy Book Hands On: Another Entry in the Crowded 2-in-1 Market
Source: Lowyat.net English
It’s also worth noting that we still have no idea how much the Samsung Galaxy Book 10 and 12 will cost – availability of these two tablets have not been announced too. As it is, the Galaxy Book tablets are impressive in their own right (especially the S Pen support and HDR display of the Book 12). But whether or not it can compete on equal ground with the Surface Pro 4 would depend on how well Samsung price its new Windows tablets.

Samsung Galaxy Book preview: A viable Surface alternative
Source: Pocket Lint English
The Samsung Galaxy Book has a great form factor. We like the look and the feel and on paper at least, there are two different devices here to appeal to different types of users. The Galaxy Book 10 will have ample power for those looking for mobile Windows working, without stepping into the realms of serious processing of things like video that might need the additional grunt of the 12-inch model.

Samsung Galaxy Book hands-on: Samsung goes head-to-head with Microsoft’s Surface
Source: It Pro English
Experts have been predicting that the 2-in-1 market will take off like a rocket for a while now, and Samsung is clearly banking on this being the case. However, its new Galaxy Book range is going up against the iPad Pro and Surface Pro in the business device market, neither of which have been particularly succesful in denting the popularity of traditional PC form factors.

Both the 12- and 10-inch Galaxy Books look like seriously impressive hybrid devices. However, from what I’ve seen, outside of their branding and aesthetics, they're completely different devices that cater to two different markets.

Samsung Galaxy Book Review
Source: Yugatech English
For a 2-in-1 Windows tablet, the Samsung Galaxy Book has done a pretty good job on providing its users a seamless experience. It has a 10.6-inch display which allows users to view their favorite contents. It runs on Intel Core M3 which is pretty satisfactory for daily usage. Since it comes with an S Pen, scribbling down notes and sketching are quite an experience. It’s also portable and only comes with a little heft. So if you’re someone who’s always on-the-go, then this tablet is for you to try.

Samsung Galaxy Book Hands-on, Initial Review: Surface Competitor
Source: Unbox English
The Galaxy Book comes in a variety of configurations. Our review unit had around 64GB of eMMC storage, expandable via microSD up to 256GB, along with 7th Gen Intel Core m3 processor and 4GB of RAM. Windows 10 runs everything, and from our experience the 10.6-inch Galaxy Book is pretty capable of handling most productivity tasks and programs, though you’ll probably not want to run games or any program on it that requires a lot of processing power to run smoothly.

Samsung Galaxy Book 2 tablet review: Performance takes a back seat to battery life
Source: Good Gear Guide English
The Samsung Galaxy Book 2 delivers fantastic battery life, marginal performance, a lovely display, and optional LTE. If you’re not doing much more with it than office work and web browsing, we see no reason not to buy it. We still encounter some apps that simply won’t run on a Snapdragon chip, though, and we’re hesitant to recommend anything that may yield a similar experience. Buying a notebook or tablet that can’t run the one app you need is a frustrating experience.

83% Samsung Galaxy Book 2 review: A better, but limited Surface rival
Source: Engadget English
Samsung’s Galaxy Book 2 looks like the ultimate Surface Pro rival, thanks to its crisp, vibrant display and handy new kickstand. Its long-lasting battery and speedy gigabit LTE are compelling draws, too. But its Snapdragon 850 CPU causes some programs to perform slowly and limits app compatibility. For $999 with a keyboard and S Pen, the Galaxy Book 2 is a reasonable deal, but only if you often travel for long distances.

While the Galaxy Book 1 was a clear improvement over the Galaxy TabPro S, the Galaxy Book 2 is not such an obvious improvement. There are some improvements of course. The battery life is better, the kickstand is better, the pen is better in some ways… but there are some areas where the Galaxy Book 2 is lacking. It only has 4Gb of RAM and 128Gb of storage now and there currently are no options for higher-end hardware. It’s only available with the Qualcomm ARM processor architecture, and that’s a performance problem when running standard Windows programs since they need to be run through an emulation subsystem. What’s more is you can’t use the 64-bit versions of those Windows programs since the emulation only supports 32 bit applications.

65% Samsung Galaxy Book 2 review: the Surface Amateur
Source: The Verge English
All of this makes the Samsung Galaxy Book 2 rather frustrating. It has a great, super portable form factor, long battery life, and built-in LTE, which should make it a great computer for road warriors. But then it’s hampered by its processor platform and lack of RAM, which make it hard to work efficiently on. Those who only have to do a handful of tasks for their work might not have an issue with the Book 2’s performance, but anyone that juggles a lot of web browsing with other productivity apps will likely hit the Book 2’s wall rather quickly.

Samsung Galaxy Book 2 first look: The next step in Snapdragon-powered laptops
Source: Trusted Reviews English
It might look a bit dull, but the Samsung Galaxy Book 2 has a lot going for it. LTE connectivity, thanks to the Snapdragon 850, a gloriously colourful screen and both the keyboard and S Pen stylus included in the box plus impressive-sounding battery life mean it’s got a lot to offer. It’ll all come down to performance though and how the Galaxy Book 2 operates under stress remains to be seen.

The bottom line is that WOA will not be as fast as an x86 desktop or laptop, but it will be sufficient for office productivity, playing 4K video and web browsing – all in the familiar Windows environment. It may also be a challenger in the Chromebook market.

How to describe my experience with Samsung's Galaxy Book2 in one word? Seamless. Between the Windows tablet's long battery life and Gigabit LTE wireless, you can work on it all day anywhere you want and then close it up, run to catch your train and open it up again to keep working on your commute home. Or you could watch some Netflix, catch up on email, read a graphic novel or sketch out one of your own with the included S Pen. Powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 850, the always-connected tablet PC gets up to 20 hours of battery life.

Samsung Galaxy Book S Shoot-Out: Intel Lakefield Vs. Snapdragon 8cx
Source: Hot Hardware English
We began this shoot-out thinking that the full x86 compatibility of the Core i5-L16G7 was going to be nothing but an asset. Coming into this, we expected better single-threaded performance, similar battery life thanks to Lakefield's low TDP, and full x86 compatibility. In the end, we got the full x86 compatibility, but the rest of the numbers didn't look very good. Overall, of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx's performance relative to the Core i5-L16G7 is excellent and the battery life for the Arm-based system is in another league. As a result, we have to give this version of the Galaxy Book S a pass.

100% Samsung Galaxy Book S review: ARMed and dangerous
Source: It Pro English
After our experiences with the Surface Pro X, we weren’t expecting terribly much from the Samsung Galaxy Book S; a sleek and shiny package, maybe, but with little to recommend it above and beyond similarly-priced Intel-based laptops. Instead, what we got was a laptop that not only looks amazing and goes toe-to-toe with rivals on performance, but also delivers one of the most staggeringly long-lived batteries we’ve seen - and all for less than £1,000 after tax. That’s some seriously impressive stuff, and well worth overlooking some lingering compatibility issues for. If this is the future of Windows on ARM, then it can’t come soon enough.

Overall, we think the Galaxy Book S is a solid device, and by far the nicest Windows on Arm laptop we've laid our hands on thus far. If your use cases align with its strengths, including media playback, web app productivity, and the need to always be connected while having great battery life, this machine is worthy of serious consideration. With our few complaints about apps that didn't quite worked out, the Galaxy Book S running Windows 10 is also far more useful beyond web browsing than any Chromebook.

Samsung Galaxy Book Flex Review
Source: Mobile Tech Review English
Lisa Gade reviews the Samsung Galaxy Book Flex 13.3” 2-in-1 convertible laptop with S Pen and a QLED Quantum Dot display (this is the first laptop with a QLED display). It’s also available in a 15.6” size. This is a stunning redesign from Samsung, and the Ultrabook has a very rigid yet slim aluminum casing finished in Royal Blue with silver accents. The Flex runs Windows 10 on the 10th gen Intel Ice Lake Core i7-1065G7 with Intel Iris Plus graphics. It has WiFi 6, a fingerprint scanner and the trackpad doubles as a Qi wireless charger. Given the Wacom EMR S Pen, it’s a great pick for artists.

Hands on: Samsung Galaxy Book Ion review
Source: Techradar English
Samsung is making some wild promises with its Galaxy Book Ion line of laptops, namely 20 hours of battery life with QLED displays. But, is that enough to be excited for laptops with no firm price or release date? Not really, but they’re at least more interesting than Samsung’s Flex flagship laptops.

As soon as you clap eyes on the Samsung Galaxy Book Ion, you can tell this is a special machine. This is no MacBook Air clone, clad in dull grey aluminium, but a laptop with its own identity that hits all the right notes for a 13in ultraportable: it’s light at 970g, robust and packs a stunner of a screen.

The Samsung Galaxy Book Ion is aimed at casual laptop users who want the best experience possible. A glorious QLED display, long-lasting battery life and ultra-portable premium design make it a worthwhile alternative to Dell and Microsoft systems, but that high price will be hard to justify for some, especially with the sub-standard keyboard and lack of a decent integrated graphics performance.

The Samsung Galaxy Book Ion is a nicely designed thin and light laptop that boasts an impressive amount of power, along with some genuinely unique features - though not all of them are successful. It has a stunning 1080p screen and a truly impressive battery life, but it's also very expensive, meaning it won't be for everyone.

84.4% Galaxy Book Flex 13.3 in review: Samsung convertible with bright display | Notebookcheck
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.
90% Samsung Galaxy Book Flex review
Source: Tech Advisor English
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.

Samsung now also offers its compact Galaxy Book S with an Intel processor. Compared to the ARM model, you get better compatibility with apps, but in return there is no LTE modem and the battery runtimes are also shorter. We checked if there are any other differences between the two models.

We began this shoot-out thinking that the full x86 compatibility of the Core i5-L16G7 was going to be nothing but an asset. Coming into this, we expected better single-threaded performance, similar battery life thanks to Lakefield's low TDP, and full x86 compatibility. In the end, we got the full x86 compatibility, but the rest of the numbers didn't look very good. Overall, of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx's performance relative to the Core i5-L16G7 is excellent and the battery life for the Arm-based system is in another league. As a result, we have to give this version of the Galaxy Book S a pass.

Samsung Galaxy Book Ion 15 NP950XCJ-K01DE

The Samsung Galaxy Book Ion 15.6 is one of Samsung’s first and possibly one of the earliest notebooks to use quantum dot (QLED) technology. Other major highlights of the Galaxy Book Ion are its lightweight build and wireless-charging touchpad. This time, the 15.6-inch Galaxy Book Ion launched by Samsung uses a thin and lightweight design, it measures W355.0 × D227.2 × H14.9 mm and weighs 1.52 kg, so it is very easy to bring out the street. In addition, a silver-white design was used for the build, and a matte material for the laptop surface. In terms of the configuration, it is equipped with Intel's 10th generation Ice-Lake Core processor, 16 GB of LPDDR4X memory and 1TB NVMe SSD. As for graphics, it is also equipped with a Nvidia GeForce MX 250 2GB GDDR5 dedicated graphics card. The screen supports 360° rotation and uses a QLED touch screen (Quantum Dot LED) with a resolution of 1920x1080 pixel, a peak brightness of 600 nits, and excellent colour performance. It also has an outdoor mode. When it is used outdoors, as long as this mode is activated, the screen brightness will be further improved, so that everyone can clearly see the content displayed on the screen, even in the sun. The display is so different that users will immediately feel the difference when they switch from a different laptop. The QLED display just makes it that much better for content playback.

For connectivity, it supports the latest WiFi 6, features integrated AKG stereo speakers and fingerprint recognition for Windows Hello functions, a dual-array microphone and a 720p camera on the top, plus, it comes with an S Pen stylus that allows for easier note taking. The expansion options on both sides include two conventional jacks, namely Thunderbolt 3 and a microSD-card reader. Powering the laptop is a non-removable 69.74Wh lithium battery. It can be used for more than 21 hours with a full charge. It is also worth mentioning that as long as the Wireless PowerShare function is turned on in the software, the TouchPad of the computer can be turned into a wireless charging pad. It can charge a phone as long as it is placed on it, but the user cannot use the TouchPad while charging. Overall, the Samsung Galaxy Book Ion 15.6 is an attractive laptop with a great display panel. It also features good performance with the hardware. It has achieved a great balance between a lightweight build, performance and appearance, but at a slightly higher price point.

Although unconventional in a number of ways, so many of those features - user-expandable storage and RAM, an eye-catching finish, NUM pad, large screen aspect - will only add to this laptop's appeal. It's good to see Samsung back in the game and trying things a little differently, with positive effect.

Comment

Samsung: The Samsung Group is composed of numerous international businesses, all united under the Samsung brand in South Korea. The meaning of the Korean word Samsung is "tristar" or "three stars". The Samsung brand is one of the most important brands of South Korea. Samsung is an international notebook manufacturer of medium size according market shares and reviews.

In 2015 and 2016, Samsung had a market share of around 24-25% in the global smartphone market and was undisputed market leader. In the laptop sector, Samsung is on the 8th place in the global manufacturer rankings from 2014-2016 with 1.7-2.7%.

 

In 2016 Samsung slipped into a crisis due to exploding smartphone batteries and a failed recall action.


Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel HD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2) found on some Kaby-Lake CPU models (15 W ULV series).

Qualcomm Adreno 680: Integrated graphics card in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx SoC for Windows laptops. According to Qualcomm 2x faster than the previous Adreno 630 in the Snapdragon 850 for Windows PCs with a 60% improved efficiency (thanks to the 7nm process).

Intel UHD Graphics 620: Integrated GPU (GT2, 24 EUs) found on some Kaby-Lake-Refresh CPU models (15 W ULV series). Technically identical to the previous Kaby-Lake GPU called HD Graphics 620.

Intel Iris Plus Graphics G4 (Ice Lake 48 EU): Integrated graphics card in Intel Ice-Lake G4 SoCs based on the new Gen. 11 architecture with 48 of the 64 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster).

Intel UHD Graphics G7 (Lakefield GT2 64 EU): Integrated graphics card in Intel Lakefield G7 SoCs based on the new Gen. 11 architecture with 64 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). Similar to the Iris Plus G7 in Ice Lake CPUs but with a much lower clock speed of only 200 - 500 MHz and therefore only performing on a level with the Intel UHD Graphics 620. The Lakefield chips are produced in the modern 10nm process at Intel produced.

Intel Iris Plus Graphics G7 (Ice Lake 64 EU): Integrated graphics card in Intel Ice-Lake G7 SoCs based on the new Gen. 11 architecture with 64 EUs (Execution Units / Shader Cluster). The clock rate depends on the processor model ranging from 300 MHz base to 1050 - 1100 MHz boost. The Ice-Lake chips are produced in the modern 10nm process at Intel produced.

NVIDIA GeForce MX250: Successor of the MX150 and still based on the same Pascal GP108 chip (similar to the desktop GT 1030) but with higher clock speeds. Available in two versions, a normal 25 Watt version and a low power version with 10 Watt TDP and reduced performance. The 25 Watt version e.g. offers a 21% higher boost clock than the old MX150 leading to a 5% performance gain.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel HD Graphics 615: Integrated graphics card in some Kaby Lake Y-series processors (4.5 Watt TDP) with 24 EUs (GT2) and no dedicated graphics memory. Clocks with Update to 1050 MHz depending on the CPU Model.

Qualcomm Adreno 630: Integrated graphics card in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC. According to Qualcomm 30% faster than the old Adreno 540 in the Snapdragon 835 with 30% less power consumption.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.
