Samsung Galaxy Book Pro 360 Review
Samsung Galaxy Book Pro
Samsung Galaxy Book Pro Samsung has released several bookstores in recent years. While there were some great devices with an overall recognizable brand name, most of them were Samsung’s purchases of interest; Nothing really enters the main conversation.
So it seems reasonable that the Galaxy Book Pro 360 is not a direct sequel to any previous Galaxy book. Rather, it is an attempt to combine the best features of Samsung’s previous PCs into one device that Samsung knows can do better.
It worked. The Samsung Galaxy Book Pro 360 targets a specific audience, but in two areas – LED screens and heavy three-pound weight – it’s an exciting device with little competition in the market. But the really remarkable thing is that you don’t have to sacrifice much to get special features. It is solid in other important areas, involves the right software, and has some important issues. If there is one device that can pull the Galaxy Book out of Samsung’s super fan base and into the mainstream market, this is the one.
The 15-inch Samsung Galaxy Book Pro 360 starts at $ 1,299. For the base price, you get Core i7-1165G7, 8GB RAM, and 512GB storage. For 200 GB, I can upgrade to the model I’m reviewing, which has 16 GB of RAM and 1 TB of storage. The only difference between these configurations is that it only comes from the original “Mystic Navy” (the unit color I have), while the more expensive one comes from the “Mystic Bronze”. There is also a 13-inch model, starting at 1,399.99 and will support 5G at some point (although it hasn’t arrived yet)
It is competitive pricing. Samsung’s latest ultraportable touchscreen Galaxy Book Flex has MS 1,399 MSRP for the 8GB / 512GB model (although it is on sale right now). The comparable models of the Surface Laptop 4 and Surface Pro 7 Plus start at a much lower price of $ 1,499. All Galaxy Book Pro 360 models ship an S Pen similar to the S Pen in the Galaxy Book Flex, which is 2.5 times thicker. As I mentioned in my initial look at Book 360, it actually looks like an actual pen (especially compared to the S Pen you find on Galaxy Note phones, which are like comparable toys), though I wish Is that it was somewhere in the chassis to hide it.
The quad-core i7-1165G7 is the same processor that powers many of the best consumer laptops on the market. The Pro 360 Chrome was great for loading tabs and apps, and I pushed it to the test every day. The performance is excellent, and I rarely hear fans moving (sometimes I hear the coil screaming from the processor). Keep in mind that there are no unique GPU options. But the Iris X graphics can provide a hand for some lightweight gaming and graphic tasks.
Then, there are many customization features that you can change in the Samsung Settings app. If you want complete silence, you can switch between the cooling profile and the “no fan” mode. You can change “Studio Mode” to improve the quality of your video call – not day and night. I found it better in low-light settings. One feature I don’t like is the incognito screen. Which suggests a privacy screen, but makes the app you use translucent or dark (it doesn’t work on every app). This makes snooping difficult, but it also gives a unique feel. You can achieve a similar effect by lowering your screen. If you see hyper-sensitive content, I would invest in a laptop with a real privacy shield (like HP Elite Dragonfly).
There are some bonuses for those who are devotees of Samsung. You can expand your display on the Galaxy Tab S7 or S7 Plus and quickly transfer files between Galaxy devices with Samsung’s fast functionality. The Pro 360 is pre-loaded with some Samsung software, including Samsung specifications (synchronous between devices) and smartouts.
Most (very few) of my questions on the device came from outside. One, the blue chassis is a fingerprint magnet (breaking the lid after half a day of use). I also experienced some palm rejection issues from time to time on the touchpad. Which improved, but it did not go away when I dropped it at very low sensitivity. I know some people prefer the flat keyboard, but it is too flat for my taste, traveling only 1mm.
The 13-inch Samsung Galaxy Book Pro 360 will be one of the lowest 13-inch OLED laptops in the market. 15-inch layer OLED is very common, but it is not uncommon to look outside of manufacturer-focused workstations with unique GPUs. This is especially true since the resolution is only 1920 x 1080, not 4K.)
The screen is very sharp with vibrant colors. (Our colorimeter covers a maximum of 100 percent of the DCI-B3 color range and 100 percent of the SRGP color range). We expect from the OLED panel, it offers bright white and unique black color. If you looking for a 15.6-inch laptop with an OLED display. You are unlikely to find a laptop for a lower price.
He said that there are many things to keep in mind. At first, it was not very bright, with only 276 nits rising in my test. Even though I used it, it kicked off some vision. Secondly, it is 16: 9, a ratio that I have always cursed for many aspects. Third, when you type or use the touch screen, some stagger. This is not the worst stagger yet, but it is.
Another unique feature: the Samsung Galaxy Book Pro 360 is not really easy to carry. It will be a few millimeters thicker than the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra (0.46 in). At three pounds, it is one of the lightest 15-inch laptops you can buy. Known for their lightweight construction, the 15-inch Surface Laptop 4 and Galaxy Book Flex weigh around half a pound. I am not considering buying 15-inch laptops anymore because they weigh; This is the first 15 inches that I reviewed and I see it moving throughout the day.
The third advantage is something I did not expect: battery life. This laptop has a 68Wh battery. Which is not larger than 15 inches (although it is larger than you often see on a 15W processor with integrated graphics). It has a battery suction display. Samsung’s last attempt at an OLED laptop was to disappoint battery results. So I was wondering how long the Galaxy Book Pro 360 will last. I took an average of 10 hours and 23 minutes on a single charge during my test, using about a dozen Chrome tabs. Some pages with a screen with 200 pages of light. You use it only for entertainment, not for the primary driver of the job, you can grow up even more.
I am a fan of the 15-inch Samsung Galaxy Book Pro 360, and I think its audience is very vocal. This laptop is for you to consider if you are looking for the best entertainment experience on the big screen. When you are outside and around and take notes for class. The points if you are already plugged into the Samsung ecosystem. Not everyone needs that kind of laptop – but if you do, it feels good.
The weight of the device is a huge advantage. But even more interesting is that you don’t sacrifice much to gain that weight. You get a premium build, a processor with plenty of RAM and storage, a good port, a good screen with stylus support, and full battery life all at a competitive price. The thing that makes this laptop worth its price is the icing on the lightweight chassis cake – which is not something that you have to compromise a ton of other things.
If you are a fan of Samsung, which has not yet sold the Galaxy Book Series. I would say that it is available, I wanted the hinge to be strong. I wanted the keyboard to be less flat, and I wanted the screen to be sharper. But I could not find anything that significantly hindered the overall experience. Once upon a time, Samsung dropped the 2-in-1.
