Samsung Galaxy Book3 review: The Intel Core i5-1335U celebrates a solid premiere

The vanilla model. As the most affordable model in Samsung's 2023 range of laptops, the Galaxy Book3 comes with a brand-new Intel CPU. In our review, both the Intel Core i5-1335U as well as the entire laptop itself demonstrate what they are capable of in a duel with Galaxy Book3 variants and other 15.6-inch laptops.
Samsung Galaxy Book3 review

With the Galaxy Book3 series, Samsung has recently updated its laptop models to a new generation. Once again this year and in addition to the flagship Galaxy Book3 Ultra (normally around $2500 on Amazon) and the already reviewed Galaxy Book3 Pro (from around $1300 on Amazon), the range is rounded off by the vanilla model Galaxy Book3 for around $999.

In our review, the entry-level Galaxy's job is to prove how well it can fare compared to the sister models. Before us, we have the mid-spec variant of the 15.6-inch laptop with the NP750XFG-KA7DE configuration. The device is equipped with the Intel Core i5-1335U as well as the Iris Xe Graphics iGPU, 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage.

The new Intel processor is also celebrating its premiere in the Galaxy Book3. So far, we haven't reviewed any other laptops with the Intel Core i5-1335U making a direct comparison somewhat futile. In addition to the 16-inch Galaxy Book3 Pro with an Intel Core i5-1340P and last year's Galaxy Book2 with an Intel Core i7-1260P, the 15.6-inch Huawei MateBook D 15 (2022) and LG Gram 15 (2022) are equipped with the same iGPU.

Case: A sleek laptop with a dark aluminum case

Samsung sells the Galaxy Book3 in the colors Mystic Silver and Graphite. We reviewed the sleek and understated dark gray variant. For its case material, Samsung has chosen high-quality aluminum which impressed us with its premium finish. However, this is clouded by the fact the device is a fingerprint magnet. 

The wide hinge has a smooth feel and helps ensure the laptop can be opened easily with one hand (albeit with a slight creaking noise) although this causes the case to vibrate.

Samsung Galaxy Book3

Tipping the scales at a little over 1.5 kg, the Samsung Galaxy Book3 is a very light 15.6-inch device. Of course, in terms of mobility and class-leading stamina, it can't quite compete with the LG Gram but it still manages to leave quite a few other big competitors in its tracks. At 15.4 millimeters, the laptop's thickness is rather average and is in keeping with the other dimensions.

Features: Thunderbolt is reserved for the Galaxy Book3 Pro

Samsung has reserved Thunderbolt 4 for the Pro and Ultra models. Instead, the Galaxy Book3 has to make do with four USB 3.2 Gen1 ports, half of which are Type-A and the other half being Type-C. One of the USB-C ports is used for power supply. A single HDMI port is available for an external display. The ports are split evenly and can be found on both sides of the device. They are also far enough apart to allow the use of standard plugs.

SD Card Reader

In tests with our reference memory card, the AV PRO microSD 128 GB V60, the Samsung Galaxy Book3's built-in microSD card slot delivered poor everyday performance and lags significantly behind the current competition. Unfortunately, there are no improvements compared to the previous generation.

Communication

By contrast, the installed Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX201 Wi-Fi module does its job really well. Compared to its peers, it sits at the top of the performance table and is well above average and ensures fast wireless communication. A wired alternative is not possible due to the absence of a LAN port.

Webcam

Samsung has fitted its laptop with an average-quality 720p HD webcam and a dual-array microphone. Colors are captured with very high deviations (Delta E: 27,5). The camera can also be used for Windows Hello.

Security

In addition to a Kensington Lock and TPM but offers no other security options such as a fingerprint sensor. Those are only available in the Pro version.

Accessories

Samsung has included a 45-watt USB-C power adapter with the Galaxy Book3. At under 150g, this is not only significantly lighter but also more flexible than classic chargers found with other laptops - an advantage when taking the device on the road. 

One additional benefit: In terms of packaging, Samsung has avoided using plastic. On top of this, optional accessories are also available in the form of covers, cases, input devices and more. 

Servicing

The four screws used to open the case can be found hidden in the corners of the attached feet. Internally, an additional M.2 SSD can be fitted, thanks to the additional free slot. The battery can also be swapped. In contrast, the RAM is non-removable.

Guarantee

In Germany, Samsung offers the customary 24-month guarantee. The device can either be sent in for repair or the user can visit one of its local customer service plazas. 

Input devices: The Galaxy Book3 reveals some small weaknesses

Keyboard

Samsung has gone for a fully-fledged keyboard with a small numerical keypad. Apart from the half-sized arrow keys, at 16 x 16 mm, the normal keys are well-proportioned but feel a little spongy due to their short key travel. This results in a decent but not perfect, relatively quiet typing experience.

The F1 to F12 keys are home to the usual additional functions, for example, volume controls and display brightness. Samsung's various performance modes can also be selected here. By contrast, it's not possible to switch the keyboard backlighting on and off here.

Touchpad

The 12 x 8.5 cm, decent-sized touchpad sits a touch to the left of the center of the case. Moving the mouse arrow and multitouch both work well for scrolling and similar functions, thanks to the touchpad's smooth surface. Unfortunately, clicking the non-separated buttons on the lower edge result in quite loud noises. This could be quite annoying in quiet environments such as a library. 

Display: Poor color reproduction but sufficiently bright for outdoor use

Minimal clouding and IPS glow (exaggerated illustration)

Samsung hasn't done itself any great favors by choosing a Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) panel. At just under 300 cd/m², it is just bright enough to be used outdoors, even in sunlight, (see photos below) thanks to its matte surface. However, the backlighting could be somewhat more even. 

This BOE panel usually lags behind the competition. Amongst other things, this fact applies to the contrast as well as the color reproduction which shows weaknesses in terms of its color space coverage as well as a high Delta E value. However, the latter can be improved considerably by calibration. 

A positive aspect is the relatively low response times as well as the fact that PWM flickering is completely absent. Also, clouding and IPS glow are quite inconspicuous, with the display only showing slight traces of these phenomena.

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
11 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 2 ms rise
↘ 9 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.1 (minimum) to 240 (maximum) ms. » 25 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (21.3 ms).
       Response Time 50% Grey to 80% Grey
20 ms ... rise ↗ and fall ↘ combined↗ 3 ms rise
↘ 17 ms fall
The screen shows good response rates in our tests, but may be too slow for competitive gamers.
In comparison, all tested devices range from 0.2 (minimum) to 636 (maximum) ms. » 28 % of all devices are better.
This means that the measured response time is better than the average of all tested devices (33.4 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 17560 (minimum: 5 - maximum: 3846000) Hz was measured.

Performance: A mid-range Raptor Lake-U shows what it can do

The Samsung Galaxy Book3 presented here is equipped with an Intel Core i5-1335U processor. The manufacturer has opted against implementing a dedicated graphics card and, instead, has gone for Intel Iris Xe Graphics. This configuration includes 16 GB of LPDDR4x RAM (non-replaceable) running at 2133 MHz with quad-channel operation and a 512 GB NVMe SSD.

Samsung also offers the Galaxy Book3 in other configurations. The spectrum ranges from an Intel Core i3-1315U with Intel UHD Graphics and 8 GB of LPDDR4x RAM up to an Intel Core i7-1355U with Intel Iris Xe and 16 GB of RAM.

The performance measurements were made by selecting (if not otherwise stated) the "High Performance" mode using the Samsung settings app as well as the Windows "Best Performance" setting. Using these settings, the CPU clock levels off at 39 W PL2 and 23 W PL1 (dynamic).

Alternatively, "Optimized", "Quiet" and "Silent" modes can also be selected in Samsung's own app with the quieter fan resulting in significantly reduced performance ("Silent" mode: PL1: 25 W; PL2: 6). The switch between the performance levels is done either via the app or by using the key combination "Fn" + "F11".

Processor

The integrated Core i5-1335U originates from Intel's Raptor Lake-U series and is based on the Alder Lake architecture. The chip used here has two performance cores and eight efficiency cores. It is designed for mid-range laptops and supports 12 threads thanks to the hyper-threading of the P-cores. The P-core's clock speed sits between 1.3 to 4.6 GHz and the E-cores at 0.9 to 3.4 GHz, making it around 200 and 100 MHz faster than the i5-1235U from the previous Intel generation, respectively.

Samsung doesn't fully take advantage of the processor's potential. In our benchmarks, it had to narrowly admit defeat to the Galaxy Book2. However, last year we reviewed the predecessor with its more powerful i7-1260P. Nevertheless, it does enough to warrant being ahead of the Acer Swift X SFX16 and also the LG Gram 15Z90Q whose i5-1240P processor offers more cores but is tuned rather conservatively due to the battery life. The gap to the Galaxy Book3 Pro with its i5-1340P sits at an average of 10 to 20 percent.

In the Cinebench 15 endurance test, the integrated i5-1335U performed consistently over time but dropped slightly again towards the end. Using Samsung's "Quiet" mode setting, the performance dropped by around 15 percent according to Cinebench. Also, in battery mode, around 85 percent power is available using Windows "Balanced" mode.
