Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro 360 13, i5-1235U

If you want your next laptop to be a convertible, the Galaxy Book 2 360 is definitely worth considering. Despite not having top-of-the-line specs, it performs well across three key pillars of a great laptop: display, performance and battery life. Charging speeds are decent too, while there are more ports than you’d expect from such a thin and light device. However, it’s not all good news. The Book 2 360’s webcam is a real disappointment, while the keyboard and trackpad could both do with some work. These won’t be dealbreakers unless you rely on the internal camera for video calls, although the strength of the competition makes it more difficult to recommend. If you’re set on a Samsung laptop this will serve you well, but better value for money can be found elsewhere.

The Samsung Galaxy Book2 360 could be the best laptop Samsung has made. While Samsung's smartphones have long been popular with many users, its Galaxy Book range of laptops is developing a pretty good reputation too, and shaping up as serious competition for the likes of Apple’s MacBooks and the Microsoft Surface range. The latest addition to the Galaxy Book range is the second-generation Galaxy Book2 360, which is a really attractive convertible model that doubles up as either a laptop or tablet. It’s competitively priced, starting at $899.99/£849 (around AU$1,200), but Samsung hasn’t cut any corners, producing an elegant, slimline design that boasts impressive battery life.
