Samsung Galaxy Book 2


We have one just one question. In a world where everything is a game of speed, what was Samsung thinking launching such a slow device that is driving us to the brink of a fit? Yes, it’s lightweight which is a big plus considering carrying it around is not much hassle. The device has overly crammed with features and add-ons but the biggest issue with it is the low-power Snapdragon 850 processor instead of Intel guts.

It did, however, perform considerably well in terms of battery life, clocking in almost 14 hours, beating Intel CPU’s but it still doesn’t quite live up to the potential of a Snapdragon chip for Windows. The device is not capable to last us a whole day without needing to be charged, especially not if you’re relying on the built-in LTE connectivity. Samsung says that if you leave the device in the default Windows 10 in S Mode setting, you’ll get much better battery performance – the downside is that you can only use apps from the Microsoft Store, which is rather inconvenient. For $1000, you expect better, since this machine can only deal with light workload. Moreover, throughout testing, the device is said to max on memory and CPU capacity, since it has a capacity of only 4 GB. Realistically, it should be priced at half of what’s quoted. To conclude, we say poor value for money.
