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 (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.
