Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro 13 review: Subnotebook with efficient Alder Lake i5

Extremely mobile. The Galaxy Book2 weighs less than 1 kg and is powered by a 12th generation Intel i5. It is also extremely thin thanks to its OLED display. The result is an extremely portable notebook that Samsung has endowed with stamina and performance, but also with the usual weaknesses.

If you require a laptop that is extremely portable and always ready to go, the Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro should at least be on your shortlist. At 13.3 inches, it offers a sufficiently large work surface while remaining lighter and smaller than most competitors. With a 12th generation i5 CPU, 8 GB of RAM and a 256 GB SSD, it is not necessarily aimed at a performance-oriented clientele, but it possesses enough power to handle almost all tasks adequately. Then there is the OLED display, which displays virtually all content a little more vividly than on a IPS, and which delivers a perfect black.

If you want to upgrade at any point, you can only (currently) choose the larger Galaxy Book, which we have already reviewed in the earlier version with an Intel Tiger Lake processor. A decision in favor of the Galaxy Book2 is therefore primarily based on size and battery life, which puts it in direct competition with an LG gram 14 that also promises maximum mobility. The somewhat dubious stability of both notebooks is thus something that we simply have to accept for now.

Case: Galaxy Book in a compact chassis

The very flat, somewhat inconspicuous but nevertheless sleek case has a slightly color-contrasting screen lid out of aluminum. Otherwise, plastic dominates. The extremely low weight of under 900 g would hardly be possible otherwise.

All parts appear to fit together very precisely. Nowhere are the edges wider than absolutely necessary. In this way, Samsung ensures that the OLED display alone is the centerpiece and the notebook remains enormously compact for its screen size.

At the same time, there is no question of torsional rigidity: both the display and the base bend if they are only held at one corner.

Samsung has devised a trick to prevent users from handling the screen too roughly: A concave in the bottom part allows the screen to be opened only in the center. The very well positioned screen cannot be grasped at the corners.

We found the strong sensitivity of the entire case to fingerprints annoying and these can only be removed with effort.

Easily overlooked when viewed from the side
The maximum opening angle is 133°
The 65 watt power adapter is also unobtrusive

The merits of the not-so-stable case are clear: With dimensions in the A4 range and a thickness of 11mm, the Galaxy Book2 Pro takes up no more space than a stack of paper. At a weight of 885g, not including the inconspicuous power supply adapter, it is one of the smallest subnotebooks - mind you, with a normal size keyboard and pleasant display dimensions. Even a small backpack or an already well-packed bag will still be able to accommodate the Galaxy Book.

Connectivity: A Samsung subnotebook with all the essentials

In keeping with the extremely compact casing, there is only a small selection of ports, which commendably include HDMI and a card slot for microSD.

USB-C and Thunderbolt 4 are also installed on the left. Unfortunately, charging is not possible from both sides. Nevertheless, the positioning makes sense. The USB-C port, which only achieves the data rate of USB 3.0, can be used for charging, while Thunderbolt remains free for everything else. 

The USB-A port on the right side is unconvincing in terms of transfer speed. USB 3.0 is not exceeded here either. But this is still sufficient for simple USB sticks, external HDDs or the mouse. Nevertheless, 10 Gbit/s would have been desirable and up-to-date for both USB-A and USB-C.

SD Card Reader

Our measurement with the AV PRO microSD 128 GB V60 reference card did not reveal any abnormalities. The card slot of the Samsung Galaxy Book falls quite unerringly in the range of the average value for subnotebooks. This level of performance is sufficient for transferring 32GB in less than 10 minutes.

Communication

Wi-Fi 6E is fast on the Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro 13. The transmission rate of over 1.5 GBit/s for sending and receiving is very solid and allows for the rapid transfer of large chunks of data.

Webcam

Samsung has been able to install a Full HD camera in a 3mm thick display frame. Full HD corresponds to twice the number of pixels offered by most competitors.

Unfortunately, the resulting image quality looks unusually grainy and has problems with changing light conditions. The adjustment to a darkening background in particular takes a lot of time. The color fidelity is also limited. Nevertheless, Full HD alone ensures that the Galaxy Book2 provides decent image quality during private video calls.

A good microphone also contributes to this. The dual-array design always picks up the voice at a similar volume from different spatial directions. Even from a distance of 2m and with intrusive background noise, this works convincingly.

Maintenance

Opening the baseplate is surprisingly uncomplicated. The four rubber feet are not glued, but merely clamped. They can thus be levered out without damage and each have a screw underneath.

No tools are needed to detach the baseplate. Although Samsung uses the typical plastic clasps for the Galaxy Book2, they can be unfastened with little effort.

The battery and SSD are then freely accessible for replacement. Even the standalone fan can be cleaned easily. The other components, especially the Wi-Fi module and RAM, are firmly soldered.

Input Devices: The Galaxy Book offers decent quality

Samsung has installed a standard-size keyboard into the case, which is only 30cm wide. This is immediately noticeable when typing because it works flawlessly. Even the slight yielding of the keyboard frame is less annoying than would be expected from such a slim subnotebook.

The key travel amounts to just under one millimeter. More is simply not possible due to the Galaxy Book's overall thickness of 11mm. As the keystroke is firm and minimally audible, it is generally pleasant to use.

Moreover, the keyboard backlighting improves visibility in dark environments. The availability of three brightness levels to choose from means that there should be a suitable setting for every environment. However, there are no special features such as a proximity sensor to activate the backlight

The key pressure of the touchpad is also minimal. This is by no means optimal, but it is perfectly adequate. Thanks to its large size and high sensitivity, all forms of input succeed as desired. In terms of design, it is understandable that physical buttons have been omitted, but it would have certainly increased usability.

Display: OLED makes the difference in the Galaxy Book2

A dark film scene shows quite impressively what the OLED display is capable of. Because the self-illuminating pixels simply remain switched off when black areas are displayed, a deep, dark black is actually shown.

This naturally has an effect on the contrast, giving the colors a completely different vibrancy than on an IPS or TN panel with a backlight. Added to this is the slightly above-average peak brightness of 403 cd/m², near-complete coverage of the DCI-P3 color space and an outstanding response time of 4ms.

All in all, this is perfect for streaming suitably high-quality content - aside from the small screen size.

Thanks to OLED technology, screen bleeding cannot occur. However, typical for OLED displays (Samsung calls it AMOLED in the case of an active matrix OLED) is the darkening of individual stripes in the image, especially at lower brightness levels. This results in a phenomenon that is somewhat comparable to the flickering caused by pulse width modulation.

Our measurements showed a refresh rate of 61 Hz at less than 90% screen brightness, which is perceptible, but the effect should not be confused with flickering: it is more like a smooth image gradient. So those who are sensitive to PWM flickering should not be bothered by this particular dynamic of OLEDs.

The bottom example photo shows an exposure time of 1/160 s or 6ms. Here, the aforementioned distortion (black bars) is no longer perceptible. At only 1 ms, on the other hand, far below human perception, the black bars are unambiguous. Even at maximum brightness, one such bar is present, but only visible at an exposure time of 1/4000 s.

* ... smaller is better

No wishes remain unfulfilled in the representation of colors. The particularly extensive DCI-P3 color space is virtually completely covered. Only the color space AdobeRGB 1998, which extends far into the green, cannot be completely covered by the OLED display.

This is sufficient even for professional requirements, especially considering that, after calibration, even the largest deviation from the actual color is still below the usual threshold for human perception. Uncalibrated, on the other hand, a trained eye may still notice one or two color distortions.

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.

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 61 Hz ≤ 90 % brightness setting

The display backlight flickers at 61 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 61 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 21819 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Strong reflections massively restrict readability
Strong reflections massively restrict readability

Thanks to its peak brightness of up to 400 cd/m², working outdoors seems possible, at least in theory. However, this value drops to 330 cd/m² in battery mode. Furthermore, the advantage of the low black level cannot be fully exploited in bright environments.

In combination with a reflective display, not much can be seen, at least in sunlight. Away from the light and in the shade, on the other hand, display content can be read relatively normally as long as there are no reflections from bright surfaces in the background. Overall, the strengths of the Galaxy Book's display come to the fore indoors.

Changes in brightness or colors cannot be observed regardless of the viewing angle. As the panel is not built up in layers, the illuminance in particular does not diminish even from a sharp angle. However, a slight blue tint that is typical for OLEDs can be observed from an angle of almost 90°.

Performance: Samsung's laptop has little room to unfold

The Intel Alder Lake i5-1240P processor used in the Galaxy Book2 Pro does not have to hide in terms of computing power, even if it cannot fully utilize its potential here due to restrictions of space and the focus on a long battery life.

Only 8GB of RAM, on the other hand, is a point of criticism, even if it should suffice for most tasks. Either way, the notebook may resent the spontaneous opening of thirty browser tabs and respond with a somewhat longer loading time.

All in all, the subnotebook - as is typical for its class - is designed for quiet and long lasting operation. If you want top performance, however, you would need a much larger, heavier and more expensive laptop.

Test Conditions

Samsung has installed a separate function key for performance profiles. The secondary function of F11 allows the selection of High Performance, Optimized, Quiet and Silent. All performance tests were carried out at High Performance. Here, the processor consumes 40 W for fractions of a second, gradually dropping to 20 W over a period of 28s before falling even further.

The other performance modes are mainly for fan control. At the lowest level, the CPU's power supply is reduced to 9 W so that the fan remains silent. Here, the setting has no effect on battery life, as the processor remains well below this level of power consumption for simple surfing or video streaming.

Processor

The Intel Core i5-1240P provides impressive fundamentals, namely four powerful cores as well as eight additional processors geared towards efficiency. Because the so-called performance cores are also capable of hyperthreading, up to 16 computing tasks can run in parallel.

However, Samsung had to limit the performance significantly. Instead of the usual 28 W of power supply, the CPU is only allowed to treat itself to 20 W. The standalone fan, which hardly gets enough airflow in the slim case, can only dissipate the heat to a limited extent. Over longer periods, computing power cannot be maintained and the power supply is further limited.

This should never be a problem. A few seconds of maximum performance are sufficient for tasks that have to be carried out when surfing, streaming, editing documents or graphics. Afterwards, the processor has enough time to cool down again.

The trimmed performance (at least in the Cinebench 15 loop) is nonetheless still on par with an i7-1165G7, which is used in strong business notebooks. However, the gap to a better-cooled i5-1240P remains more than considerable. Further processor benchmarks can be found in our database.

If constantly high performance is needed over longer periods of time, the system gradually adjusts the current consumption allowed. In the example shown here, this remains at 16 W after nine minutes. In this way, the core temperature can also be kept at 70 °C. Higher temperatures would make the case uncomfortably hot.

Because the throttling starts after a few moments, the measured performance remains constant, for example, when Cinebench is run repeatedly.

System Performance

Aside from the continuous performance of the CPU, the Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro is on par with its competitors. Despite its limited cooling capabilities, the current processor architecture can keep up with the previous generation - in much smaller and lighter housing.

This is exactly the impression one has when using the subnotebook. Processes start immediately and are completed quickly. At no time does anything stutter: this also applies to the additional power-reduced modes and battery mode. Only multitasking proves to be somewhat of a challenge.

DPC Latencies

The latencies in Prime95, Microsoft Edge and YouTube during 4K video playback are clearly too high. The long waiting time in the kernel mode driver framework likely indicates a conflict between some drivers.

As long as no real-time audio processing takes place, which is usually not carried out on a subnotebook, this should not play a role. On the other hand, it is remarkable that not a single frame was omitted during 4K video playback.

M.2-SSD with 80 mm

The measured values of the SSD are average. Compared to competitors with PCIe 4.0 for the connection of the SSD, the mass storage device used here appears slower.

On the other hand, the M.2 SSD achieves the typical values for the model used, and at no time should the write and read speeds have a negative impact. To the contrary: the system should never be able to fully utilize the given transfer rates.

Graphics

The Intel Alder Lake processor also uses the Intel Iris Xe 80EUs GPU, which we already know from the predecessor. The values are thus only marginally better compared to a Dell Latitude 5320, for example, and are on the same level based on the usual fluctuations.

The i7-1165G7, as in the LG gram 14, is clearly ahead here because it uses the stronger Iris Xe 96Eus variant. For most tasks that demand a graphics card, the performance here should be sufficient. Image editing and video editing succeed at a basic level, but take some time.
