With the ambition of creating a 2-in-1 multipurpose device (laptop hybrid tablet) to compete with Apple’s ecosystem, Samsung has unveiled the Samsung Galaxy Book, the successor to the Samsung Galaxy Tabpro S. This is a tablet model running Windows operating system.
Display: Super AMOLED touch 12inch full HD + (2160×1440)
Storage Memory: 256 GB SSD
Ports: 2 USB-type C ports; SD card slot, headphone jack
Connectivity: 802.11 a / b / g / n / ac Wi-Fi (2 x 2 MIMO), Bluetooth 4.1 BLE
Camera: 13 MP auto-focus camera; 5 MP front camera
Volume: 754 g
Dimensions: 291.3 x 199.8 x 7.4mm
The Samsung Galaxy Book comes in two versions, 10.6 inches and 12 inches, with the larger version starting at $ 1,129. This version is powered by Intel Core i5 7200U processor (Kaby Lake), 4 GB memory, 128 GB SSD, Full HD + (2160 x 1440 pixels) Super AMOLED touch screen, key pad with S-Pen stylus.
The 10-inch Samsung Galaxy Book Edition starts at $ 629 and uses a 1920×1080 Full HD TFT display instead of AMOLED as the 12-inch version. This version is equipped with Kaby Lake Core M3 processor, 4 GB memory and 64 GB SSD. The Samsung Galaxy Book version is $ 100 cheaper than the low-end version of Microsoft Surface Pro 4, which features a removable keyboard but is half the size of the US technology giant.
If you add more than $ 100 to $ 200, you can double the memory capacity of both Samsung Galaxy Book versions, however when the 12-inch version will have 8 GB memory.
The Samsung Galaxy Book’s biggest minus is in the plastic case. Overall, this is a good tablet and impressed with the quality of the screen, but the case material is too poor and not worth the price.
Compared to the Samsung Galaxy Tabpro S predecessor, the Galaxy Book possesses many similarities in design but is a bit thicker. Samsung also adorned the 2-in-1 tablet with many highlights, such as the power button and volume knob at the top, a rear camera with a resolution of up to 13 MP. Meanwhile, the front camera is only 5 MP resolution and does not support infrared so it can not login using Window Hello.
The Samsung Galaxy Book also comes with an S-Pen pen and turns it into the first computer to have a built-in stylus. This pen can be drawn, written on the screen and also erased. The pen was inserted into a small niche attached to the keyboard.
Samsung has also made great efforts to create this discrete keyboard. However, when using Samsung Galaxy Book as a laptop, this keyboard does not create the comfort to work. In a nutshell, the design of this removable keypad does not really fit and work well. This is because Samsung wants the keyboard to act as a platform for the tablet rather than as a core part of the whole machine.
Samsung Galaxy Book belongs to the same segment of Microsoft Surface Pro 4 and even Apple iPad Pro. And obviously, the more equipped with modern hardware, the greater the difference. The 7th generation Core I processor on the Samsung Galaxy Book is a bit more powerful than the two rivals from Microsoft and Apple and passed the performance test. In the actual use conditions, there is almost no difference.
Samsung Galaxy Book completes simple tasks, including basic photo editing. However, if you perform some tasks that require higher performance, this laptop hybrid tablet sometimes has a slight delay.
Monitor and battery life
The Samsung Galaxy Book’s screen makes it a pleasure to do anything from reading, surfing the Web to the Netflix service experience. Samsung has created a pretty good screen thanks to the technology and experience available in the manufacture of mobile phones. Though losing to Microsoft Surface Pro 4 on screen resolution, the Galaxy Book has a full color display, which enhances the experience of watching videos or playing games.
As a more product focused on performance, we can not expect Samsung Galaxy Book to have a great battery life. On the PCMark 8 battery life test, this laptop hybrid tablet reached 3 hours 10 minutes, 5 minutes less than Microsoft Surface Pro 4. And like many other devices, it can achieve impressive video playback time 7 hours 32 minutes.
The Samsung Galaxy Book also comes with a built-in rechargeable USB Type C technology that allows full battery charging in less than 3 hours. Actually, this is not an impressive number. The charging light is located just below the front camera and lights up in red when plugged in.

Samsung Galaxy Book comes with a lot of accessories, especially keyboards that many competitors in the price range are not integrated. In addition, this 2-in-1 tablet has a very impressive display with brilliant color display. In addition, it also possesses compact size, is quite thin and lightweight, suitable for moving.
While it comes with many accessories but the Samsung Galaxy Book is still inferior to the opponent in a few points. It can only biometric login through a second device, namely a Samsung smartphone that has the Samsung Flow application installed. While, this feature is available on the 2-in-1 tablet from Microsoft. And the last thing we did not like about it was the design of the keypad that made it feel really uncomfortable to work.
If you are not a fan of Samsung and do not use other Samsung products, such as smartphones, you will not be attracted to this hybrid laptop if it is standing next to competitors at same price range. It does not feature live biometric logging via infrared cameras such as Microsoft Surface Pro 4.
Anyway, the Samsung Galaxy Book also shows the efforts of the Korean electronics giant to compete with the Microsoft giant. However, the Galaxy Book is not really complete and impressive enough to be able to compete with Microsoft products.
