Body, Connectors, and Display for Samsung-Galaxy-Book2
It’s a simple look that this versatile laptop features a slim, lightweight and anti-fingerprint design.
It’s well-connected with two USB-C ports, Bluetooth 5.2 wireless modules, and a Wi-Fi axe (Newer and more efficient than Wi-Fi axFor remote connectivity and connectivity, the handy HDMI video output to easily connect to a TV or monitor, for example, an audio port or two USB 3.0 ports (compatible with USB 2.0) ensuring transfers are up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you plug in USB 3.0 device.
A fingerprint reader is integrated into the power button, and authentication by biometric recognition is possible through Windows Hello technology.
The keyboard keys can be backlit, which is practical to distinguish them better in limited ambient light.
The screen allows viewing of high-definition content such as videos in Full HD resolution and 16:9 format. In addition, it has large viewing angles, both horizontally and vertically, thanks to its IPS technology. Since it is anti-reflective, the screen also provides better visibility in a bright environment (eg outdoors) than a glossy panel.
Performance and autonomy for this Samsung Galaxy Book2
The Samsung Galaxy Book2 is aimed at those who are looking for a discreet, slim and light laptop for general purpose nomadic use.
Many users will be satisfied with the overall performance of this thin and light Ultrabook as it is built around 16GB of RAM and an Intel Alder Lake-U Core i7-1255U processor.
In addition, the latter directly integrates the Iris Xe graphics part thanks to which you can watch photos and videos but also play mediocre titles while there is no dedicated graphics card on the board, which is tangible.
However, if the goal is often to perform work that consumes processor and/or graphics resources, it is better to choose a PC instead based on a non-low-power processor and/or a suitable dedicated graphics card.
The storage here is entrusted to a solid state drive (SSD) which greatly improves responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive. Because it is much faster but also less power consuming, more powerful and silent.
In practice, thanks to the SSD, we get faster start / stop processes, faster processing and running of applications, or even faster access to online game cards.
It’s a 512GB SSD built in here, a capacity similar to that offered by standard hard drives. Of course, in a tight 512GB case, you can use external storage like a USB-C/USB 3.0 device to take advantage of fast transfers.
Finally, in terms of autonomy and pending more concrete tests, bet around 8 hours of battery life in light use of this versatile Ultrabook that is easy to transport with its lightness, compactness and accuracy.
