Samsung Galaxy Book S review: Incredible battery life, WWAN options sell this on-the-go PC

 

Samsung's Galaxy Book S laptop uses the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx chip, trading middling performance for a number of features that make on-the-go computing a snap.

Incredibly light, incredibly thin ; Superb 16-hour battery life ; LTE connectivity is designed in out of the box

Snapdragon 8cx processor still requires too many sacrifices ; Keyboard is mediocre

I prefer laptop keyboards with fairly substantial travel, something the Galaxy Book S lacks. Each key is firm and resilient, however, and wide enough to provide a comfortable landing space. The three levels of backlighting (plus off), aren’t...

Samsung Galaxy Book S review: A sleek laptop with mobile smarts

 

The Samsung Galaxy Book S is a Windows on Arm laptop with mobile smarts. Leaning on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8cx processor, Samsung offers 4G LTE, all-day battery life, and a fanless design. It's an ideal stylish companion for those who always need to be...

Exquisite ultra-slim design ; Excellent battery life ; MicroSD slot for extra storage

Thin keyboard doesn't have the best feel ; Native Arm app support remains hit and miss

Samsung’s Galaxy Book S is an ARM-based MacBook lookalike with LTE, 23-hour battery life, more

 

In addition to unveiling its new Galaxy Note 10 series , Samsung today also showcased the 13-inch Galaxy Book S. On the surface, the new Galaxy Book S looks a lot like the recently discontinued 12-inch MacBook , but under the hood, it could provide a...

Samsung Galaxy Book S (Intel) review: Slimline supreme

 

Does the Intel version improve on the Qualcomm model when it comes to functionality? Yes, but battery life takes a hit. Here's what to expect.

Full-fat app access (unlike Qualcomm model) ; Ultra-lightweight and slim design ; Subtle keyboard backlighting looks great ; Balanced asking price

Battery not a patch on the Qualcomm model ; No 4G/LTE either ; MicroSD cover quality is terrible ; Limited ports - no full-size USB-A

A lightweight looker that - despite the battery life being about 25 per cent less than the Qualcomm equivalent - is still a decent daily driver, with full access to Windows 10 Home and all that apps that you'll need.

Samsung Galaxy Book S review: Super battery life, subpar app access

 

With Qualcomm hardware this Samsung offers superb battery life and 4G connectivity. But the ARM architecture means app limitations, so be cautious.

Super long-lasting battery life ; Ultra-lightweight and slim design ; 4G LTE SIM slot for on-the-go use ; Subtle keyboard backlighting

Qualcomm hardware means app limitations - not everything from Windows Store is functional here ; Screen a little reflective ; Strong competiton in same price bracket

If a long-lasting machine for desk and on-the-go use is exactly what you want, this Samsung is a dream. However, only consider it if you need to do the basics - word processing, Office 365, browsing, videos, and such like - as the Qualcomm hardware...
