Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2, i3-10110U

82% Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2: A better balance of premium and practical
Source: Engadget English
Samsung’s Galaxy Chromebook 2 is much easier to recommend than the original. The company made smart choices about what to prioritize with this model, making it a computer that should satisfy a much wider swath of potential customers. I definitely wish the battery lasted an hour or two longer, but that’s my only major complaint. Besides that, it’s about as good of a premium Chromebook as you could ask for in 2021. There are much cheaper Chromebooks out there, but if you don’t mind spending extra for a great screen, sound and industrial design, the Galaxy Chromebook should be on your list.

80% Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 Review: Premium In The Right Ways
Source: The Verge English
It’s not incredible. The Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 is far from the longest-lasting Chromebook I’ve ever tested. But after last year’s Samsung Galaxy Chromebook couldn’t even make it five hours on a charge, my expectations were on the floor. I performed my first battery test on this year’s sequel in an optimistic but nervous state. Finally, several months after the Chromebook 2 was announced, I’m breathing a sigh of relief. To repeat: the battery life is not a disaster, folks. The battery life is fine.

80% Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 review: Still premium, but at a nicer price
Source: CNet English
It's unusual for the second generation of a device to have fewer features than the original and still have it be an improvement, but that's the case for the Galaxy Chromebook 2. Samsung dialed back on some of the features and components, making this sequel more affordable than the first-gen model. It also has much better battery life. And Samsung did it all without losing all of its predecessor's premium appeal.

Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2: Premium at a better price (and better battery life?)
Source: CNet English
Samsung launched three different S21 models, but the specs showed off today were not a surprise: An extensive leak from Android Police gave almost the entire spec sheet for all three phones, and promotional slides released by tipster Evan Blass confirmed most of those details.

Hands on: Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 review

The Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 improves on the original by culling the unnecessary features and hardware, which makes the laptop make more sense as a Chromebook.

Samsung Galaxy Chromebook 2 is a premium Chrome OS 2-in-1 at a better price
Source: CNet English
The Samsung Galaxy Chromebook is a beautiful 13.3-inch Chrome OS two-in-one with a gorgeous 4K-resolution AMOLED display and a strong Intel Core i5 processor. It's also $1,000 and has a relatively short battery life compared to some of its less costly competition. For its second go-round, the Galaxy Chromebook 2, Samsung made some feature tweaks to bring the price down -- and hopefully improve battery life -- while keeping the same premium look and feel of the original.

Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
