Samsung Galaxy Book3 Pro 16 review: Office laptop with Core-i5 power and a long battery life

Imbalanced. Despite the 16-inch format, the Samsung Galaxy Book3 Pro 16 can be considered a mobile laptop because of its compact size, low weight, and very good battery life. In addition, it offers an AMOLED display in the work-friendly 16:10 format (2,880 x 1,800 pixels) and a powerful Core i5 processor.

With the Galaxy Book3 Pro 16, a mobile, compact, and light office laptop, we are now looking at the third and last model of Samsung's current 16-inch lineup. We have already tested its 2-in-1 sibling, the Galaxy Book3 Pro 360 16, and the more powerful Galaxy Book3 Ultra 16 (Raptor Lake H, RTX 4050/4070). What these laptops have in common is an AMOLED panel and meager storage equipment. The competitors include devices such as the Acer TravelMate P4 TMP416-51, the Lenovo ThinkPad T16 G1, the HP EliteBook 865 G9, and the LG Gram 16.

Case - Samsung offers the laptop in two colors

The gray black (Graphite) aluminum case offers an elegant and sober look. Samsung uses matte, smooth surfaces here, without adding any showy design elements to the laptop. Alternatively, Samsung also offers a version in beige color that should be more eye-catching.

The case doesn't show any faults in workmanship. The gaps are small and even, and we don't notice any material protrusions. Although the base unit can be warped more significantly than the lid, this remains within limits. The hinges hold the lid tightly in position with a maximum opening angle of about 125 degrees, and the lid can be opened with one hand.

The slim and light Galaxy Book places in the middle of our comparison field, without reaching the compact size and particularly the low weight of the LG Gram 16.

Equipment - Samsung Galaxy offers Thunderbolt 4

Samsung has equipped the slim laptop with one USB-A connection (USB 3.2 Gen 1) and two USB-C ports (Thunderbolt 4). The latter ports also provide the laptop with power (via Power Delivery) and are also able to output a DisplayPort signal, resulting in a total of three video output ports (2x DP, 1x HDMI).

The connections are placed toward the back on the left and right side, leaving the areas next to the palm rest free from any cable connections. All the video and power connections are on the left side, although it would have made more sense to distribute the Thunderbolt 4 ports over both sides.

SD Card Reader

With maximum transfer rates of 77 MB/s (transferring 250 jpg image files of 5 MB size each) and 82 MB/s (copying large data blocks), the microSD storage card reader offers a medium-fast storage speed (using our AV PRO microSD 128 GB V60 reference card).

Communication

Under optimal conditions (without any other WLAN devices in close proximity and close distance between laptop and server PC), the laptop reaches excellent WiFi data rates. The Samsung laptop uses an Intel AX211 WiFi 6E chip. Since it doesn't offer an Ethernet connection, you'd have to use the corresponding USB adapter or a docking solution if necessary.

Webcam

The webcam (2.1 MP, max. 1,920 x 1,080 pixels) doesn't offer a mechanic lens cover and delivers standard fare in terms of the quality. There is a lack in color accuracy, and with a color deviation of about 14, the target of DeltaE < 3 is missed.

Accessories

Besides the usual documentation (warranty information, quick start instructions), there are no additional accessories included with the laptop.

Maintenance

In order to be able to take off the bottom of the case, you first have to remove all the screws that are hidden underneath the four rubber feet (slotted, not glued). After that is done, you have to carefully(!) remove the bottom plate, since it is fixed tightly and could otherwise be damaged. Using a flat prying tool or other suitable tool such as a spatula, we recommend starting in the area of the fan vents on the back. After the bottom plate is off, you gain access to the SSD (PCIe 4, M.2-2280), the fans, speakers, and the battery.

Warranty

Samsung offers a two-year warranty for its 16-inch laptop in Germany. An extension by one or two years would cost 79 or 149 Euros (~$87 and $165) respectively.

Input Devices - The NP960XFG includes a keyboard illumination

Keyboard

The smooth, slightly concave keys of the chiclet keyboard, which includes a number block and three-step illumination, offer a short stroke and clear pressure point. The key resistance is decent, and the keyboard doesn't have any give while typing. Overall, Samsung delivers a keyboard here that is suitable for everyday tasks.

Touchpad

A ClickPad serves as a mouse replacement. It measures 15.1 x 10.8 cm (~5.9 x 4.3 in), and its smooth surface facilitates sliding of the fingers. It responds to inputs also in the corners and offers a short stroke and clear pressure point.

Display - AMOLED in the 16:10 format

Subpixel grid
Subpixel grid

The reflective 16-inch display has a resolution of 2,880 x 1,800 pixels in the work-friendly 16:10 format. As typical for OLED screens, it offers an excellent black value and short response times.

While the brightness of the display surpasses the requirements, in battery operation it remains below the maximum determined in mains operation. A positive feature is that the panel doesn't show any PWM flickering. The EliteBook offers a significantly brighter display.

* ... smaller is better

We can attest a good color reproduction to the display already in the state of delivery, and with a deviation of 2.3, the target of DeltaE < 3 is met. A calibration does not bring any additional improvements.

The sRGB and the DCI-P3 color space are covered completely and the Adobe RGB color space almost completely. Using the preinstalled Samsung Settings software, the display can be adjusted toward targeting one of the three color spaces. Here, we use the "Vivid (AMOLED native)" default setting.

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.
       Response Time Black to White
2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 1 ms rise
↘ 1 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 6 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.4 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
2 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 1 ms rise
↘ 1 ms fall
The screen shows very fast response rates in our tests and should be very well suited for fast-paced gaming.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 5 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (33.7 ms).

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 not detected

In comparison: 53 % of all tested devices do not use PWM to dim the display. If PWM was detected, an average of 17803 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

The panel offers stable viewing angles and can be read from any angle. Due to the reflective display surface, it is difficult to read the display outdoors.

Test Conditions

The laptop offers four manufacturer specific performance modes (see table below). You can switch between the modes using the "Fn" + "F11" key combination or the Samsung Settings software, which is the control center of the laptop. In this test, we use the "Optimized" mode for the benchmarks and the "Quiet" mode for the battery tests.

Processor

The Alder Lake Core-i5 1340P processor consists of four Performance cores (hyperthreading, 1.9 to 4.6 GHz) and eight Efficiency cores (no hyperthreading, 1.4 to 3.4 GHz), resulting in a total of 16 logical CPU cores.

The benchmarks deliver results above ("High Performance" or "Optimized") or below ("Quiet" or "Silent") the CPU average until now, depending on the selected performance mode. In all cases, there is sufficient performance for everyday operation. The more relevant single-thread performance (164 points) is reduced more in battery mode than the multithread performance (1,818 points).

The CB15 loop test shows that constant multi-thread load will cause the Turbo clock speed to decrease in each successive run, before it starts varying from the seventh run. The processor is unable to maintain a constant level. The "High Performance" profile will ensure a higher average clock speed and less variations.

System Performance

The smoothly running system is able to handle office and Internet applications, as well as games in low settings. The working memory delivers transfer rates that are at a normal level for LPDDR5-5200 RAM. However, at only 8 GB, the storage capacity is extremely meager, with the price level of the laptop demanding at least 16 GB.

DPC Latencies

The standardized Latency Monitor test (with web surfing, 4k video reproduction, and Prime95 high load) reveals some conspicuous behavior. Even though the laptop shows very low latencies, the test reveals a driver problem that prevents video and audio processing in real-time. Future software updates might lead to some improvements or also make things worse.

Storage Solution

Samsung has equipped the laptop with a PCIe 4 SSD (M.2-2280) from Western Digital that only offers a 256 GB capacity, which is not enough for a 1,700-Euro (~$1,879) laptop. While it delivers good data rates, it is not one of the top models among SSDs. On the positive side, we did not observe any thermal throttling. The Samsung laptop doesn't offer any space for additional storage media.

A PCIe 4 SSD serves as the system drive.
