80% Samsung Galaxy Book2 Review: Scores high on utility
Source: The Times of India English
At a starting price of around Rs. 66,000, the Samsung Galaxy Book2 is at par with most of its competitors that you can buy. This is a handsome-looking laptop providing decent performance, especially for working professionals. Though you may miss a good battery backup, a fast charger fills the need. Samsung could have broken the trend and stuffed it with a bigger battery, considering its large 15.6-inch display. Also, the audio output could have been better with nicer speakers. Nonetheless, if you have a budget of Rs. 66000 the Samsung Galaxy Book2 is a solid laptop for consideration.

Samsung Galaxy Book2 review: Not the brightest, but still a star
Source: Business Standard English
Priced Rs 69,990 onwards, the Samsung Galaxy Book2 is a capable thin-and-lightweight laptop with a large 15.6-inch screen. It is not perfect but has a strong foundation geared towards performance and ease of use in order to compensate for the modern-day frills that it lacks. That said, the Galaxy Book2 would get eclipsed by feature-rich laptops in its segment, but it is a good package in its own right.

15.60":

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.

72.5%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
