Samsung Galaxy Book Go: The $349 laptop that tests your patience

 

The Samsung Galaxy Book Go is energy-efficient and economical, but also exhausting

Great battery life ; Satisfactory speakers ; Decent keyboard

Dim, washed-out display ; Storage not upgradeable ; Awful touchpad ; App incompatibility issues

The Samsung Galaxy Book Go is a $349 Windows-on-ARM laptop with excellent battery life, but its laggy performance overshadows its endurance.

Review: Samsung Galaxy Book Go demonstrates the value of Windows on ARM

 

The promise of Windows on ARM finally reaches the entry-level PC market with the new Samsung Galaxy Book Go. With a thin, fanless design and a $300 starting price, it shows why Qualcomm-based PCs have a strong future. But is that vision ready for...

Excellent build quality ; Nice size display, trackpad, keyboard ; Fanless, thin design ; Windows 11-ready ; Samsung app ecosystem

Processor performance is OK ; Display quality is not the best ; Only decent battery life

Bottom line: Samsung merges its excellent laptop design chops with a low-powered ARM processor to make a very affordable laptop that falls just short of being great.

The Samsung Galaxy Book Go is a budget-friendly Windows laptop, but a poor performance makes it a poor Chromebook alternative.

Samsung Galaxy Book Go review

 

The Samsung Galaxy Book Go sounds good on paper, but lots of ports and 4G connectivity can't make up for a dim screen and dismal performance.

Great port selection & 4G ; Simple, slim design ; Good battery life

Unbearably under-powered ; Dim, basic display ; Super-slow charging

The Samsung Galaxy Book Go has an attractive enough design, plenty of ports, and perks like excellent battery life and 4G connectivity, but its performance problems overshadow them all. All the ports in the world don’t matter when a laptop is this slow...

Samsung Galaxy Book Go review: You’re better off with a Chromebook

 

The Galaxy Book Go is a budget 14in Windows laptop with a Qualcomm ARM CPU, a 4G modem and a few too many problems

Light and compact ; 4G modem included ; Excellent battery life

Dreadful display ; Non-native apps feel slow ; No touchscreen

What to make of the Galaxy Book Go, then? It certainly makes good on its two main promises of great battery life and always-on wireless connectivity, but its awful display is impossible to overlook. That’s a shame, because the keyboard is great and...

Samsung Galaxy Book Go review: A galactic disappointment | IT PRO

 

The ‘Go' stands for ‘Go and buy something else'

Lightweight, slimline design ; Fanless for silent working ; All-day battery life

Appalling display ; Frustratingly sluggish performance ; Windows on ARM still needs work
