Samsung Galaxy Book 2 review: A better, but limited Surface rival

 

Samsung's Galaxy Book 2 looks like the ultimate Surface Pro rival, thanks to its crisp, vibrant display and handy new kickstand. Its long-lasting battery and speedy gigabit LTE are compelling draws, too. But its Snapdragon 850 CPU causes some programs...

Excellent battery life ; Sturdy kickstand ; Fast and always available gigabit LTE ; Brilliant screen S Pen and keyboard included

Performance lags Intel systems ; App compatibility remains questionable

But Samsung and Qualcomm cannot ignore Intel's performance advantage forever. While Microsoft has made strides in enabling native 64-bit app compatibility for Windows on ARM, it still needs to work harder at reducing the speed tradeoffs. I like the...

Samsung Galaxy Book2 review: Your workday just got longer... but in a good way

 

With a Qualcomm mobile chipset inside made for Windows PCs, this tablet is a glimpse at the future of work devices.

The Samsung Galaxy Book2 successfully borrows the Microsoft Surface Pro design formula, while adding long battery life and Gigabit LTE wireless. Its $1,000 price includes its backlit keyboard cover and S Pen.

The Galaxy Book2's processing performance, while improved from earlier Qualcomm Windows PCs, is still behind Intel Core i-series PCs.

The Samsung Galaxy Book2 is a clear-cut example of the always-on, always connected future of PCs. If you want to work anywhere at anytime and don't mind adding a device to your data plan, it's worth consideration.

Samsung Galaxy Book 2 tablet review: Performance takes a back seat to battery life

 

Samsung's Galaxy Book 2 includes the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 chip, which enables this Windows tablet to achieve industry-leading battery life at the cost of some performance.

Absolutely the best battery life we've seen, period ; Re-engineered tablet chassis is on a par with competition ; $999 price tag is very competitive, and includes keyboard and pen ; Optional LTE gives you connectivity on the go

Low overall performance ; Included apps aren't really necessary ; Is this app going to work? There's always some doubt

Physically, the Galaxy Book demonstrates that changing horses midstream sometimes necessitates a new harness and tack. The Galaxy Book 2 is a tad shorter, a bit wider, slightly thicker, and 0.08 pounds lighter than its predecessor. More importantly,...

Qualcomm 850 CPU still sluggish compared to Intel chips; Pen magnet not strong enough; Kickstand digs into lap when you're typing; Battery life is good but doesn't wow ; The Galaxy Book 2 boasts an awesome OLED display and built-in LTE, but this...

The Galaxy Book 2 boasts an awesome OLED display and built-in LTE, but this Snapdragon-powered 2-in-1's performance and battery life aren't quite good enough.

Samsung's Galaxy Book 2 Tries to Do Too Much, Fails

 

Using the Samsung Galaxy Book 2 I'm reminded of the time I tried to install curtain rods in an old apartment using just the tiny Philips-head screwdriver on my Leatherman. I got the job done, but it was a real pain in the ass.

Good battery life. Keyboard and stylus are included in the price.
