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.
