After a couple of laptops, in the form of Galaxy Book Flex and Ion, which flattered to deceive, Samsung shook things up with a simpler range of Galaxy Book Pro devices. Both the Pro and Pro 360 were luxury-free machines, focused on build quality in a thin chassis, and it worked. Now, Samsung has returned with the tracking range, including the sequel to one of our 2 in 1 favorites, the Galaxy Book2 Pro 360. However, Samsung has not tried to reinvent itself again, with iterative updates that have supposed a lot. of the novelties of this last model.
The Galaxy Book2 Pro 360 is clearly not designed to be stunning, with a fairly standard shell look, and this is especially the case with the simple silver model I tested. In contrast, it is the feeling of quality of the device, along with its thinness of 11.9 mm, and a manageable weight of 3.11 pounds (1.4 kg), which is worth appreciating. Still, the Burgundy and graffiti options are half trying to liven things up a bit.
The quality of the device is unfortunately betrayed by a key issue and a smaller detail. During my test, the machine picked up some small marks below the screen. These marks are not so noticeable, but since they have only been transferred to a bag for just over a week, it is disappointing to see them emerge so easily. Want to get more, extra take care of this Samsung laptop to make sure it stays flawless. You should also choose your color choice wisely. The blue version available for last year’s model was a kind of fingerprint magnet, so the silver color may be the safe choice for a neat look.
The thinness of the Galaxy Book2 Pro 360 is a key reason why it works just as well as a 2-in-1 machine. 15.6 inches I tested for this review, so I would expect the smaller 13.3-inch version to offer even more. comfort in this regard. The continuously excellent S Pen is included with the Galaxy Book2 Pro 360 range and works quickly and accurately in tablet mode. You can use it in store or shell modes, but this is not where a pencil case works best.
Evolution not resolution
As with the previous model, the quality of the screen is a big selling point for this laptop. The screen is extremely bright, extremely colorful and provides stunning contrast. Some may be dismayed that Samsung is back with a Full HD panel here, but the lack of pixels does not tell the whole story. This AMOLED screen is awesome. And combined with the 360 hinge, it makes it a great device for watching movies and TV, as well as for watching your own photos and videos.
Speakers add to the experience, with some of the best sound from laptops. Audio is booming in the right places, even for a slim device, as well as maintaining its detail and accuracy at high volumes. They’re not entirely MacBook level, but they’re up there with the great Dell XPS speakers.
The 16: 9 screen also helps with the movie viewing experience, reducing those black bars that frame your favorite movie. However, this aspect ratio seems outdated alongside some pretty thick bezels, as most of Samsung’s rivals have switched to aspect ratios such as 16:10 and 3: 2. As such, you won’t get a very productivity-friendly screen, which offers a higher screen that compresses more text.
The usability of the Galaxy Book2 Pro 360 laptop as a tablet is a saving grace. It’s not a replacement for a more square screen, but positioning this device in a vertical orientation, in tablet mode, gives you a very high screen for browsing articles and scrolling through social media.
