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.

Samsung Galaxy Book 12 Convertible Review (First Impressions) | Notebookcheck
Office to go. Samsung promises the highest productivity for people on the go with the new Galaxy Book 12. The Windows based tablet is always shipped with Keyboard Cover and S Pen. We had the chance to have a closer look at the convertible at the MWC in Barcelona. Here are our first impressions and benchmarks.

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.

85% Samsung Galaxy Book 12 4G — Australian Review
Source: Ausdroid English
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.

Samsung’s Galaxy Book touches all the bases of what makes a solid Windows tablet: a sharp display, very good performance, and excellent battery life, all for a reasonable price. As for Samsung’s choice of USB-C—a port expander or dongle might not be the most convenient option, but it will carry you through. Eventually, you’ll begin shifting your own personal ecosystem to the newer connectivity format.

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 Galaxy Book review: You're better off with a Surface Pro
Source: Engadget English
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.

Samsung Galaxy Book 12: A 2-in-1 Surface Pro Rival To Beat
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.

Samsung Galaxy Book 12 Review: OLED Display Meets S Pen And Portability
Source: Hot Hardware English
Either way you look at it, the new Samsung Galaxy Book 12 is a gorgeous 2-in-1 device offering the kind of performance you'll find in a premium ultrabook, but with 1.5 pound portability and a stunning OLED display. It's a solid option in convertible devices, if you're willing to make the leap price-wise. When you consider, for a tablet 2-in-1 hybrid, that the display is such a critical aspect of the total package, the Samsung Galaxy Book 12 is a standout device worthy of consideration.

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.

The Galaxy Book’s $1,430 price tag is high, but with Windows 10 Pro, keyboard case, stylus and one-year warranty, it comes complete. A similarly configured Surface Pro 4 costs $1,200, but its Type Cover keyboard costs an extra $130, bringing it to $100 less than the Galaxy Book 12.

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.

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.

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 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.

Samsung's latest 2-in-1 now looks much like the competition, but with a key change: it uses Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon processor, which delivers game-changing battery life but anemic performance.

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.

Samsung Galaxy Book 2 Review
Source: Pocketnow English
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.

Samsung has seriously upgraded the Galaxy Book's aesthetic in this sequel, and the switch to Snapdragon should make it much more appealing to anyone who needs to be able to work on the go. The lightweight design makes it even better for travelling, even with the new metal construction.

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.
