Samsung Galaxy Book: Multifaceted Mobility

The Galaxy Book is one of the latest offerings from Samsung’s line of tablets that promises to provide the combined work-and-play experience with convenience for people on-the-go and for a price of almost Php 45,000.

Not only has this 2-in-1 tablet computer boasts a stunning display and a sleek design, it also offers incredible performance which anyone can deal with – be it business or leisure. Imagine having a vivid 10.6-inch AMOLED display while delivering superior performance, thanks to its 7th Generation Intel Core M3 backed by a 4GB RAM. Weighing 644 grams, it is light but packed with features that are likely meant for doing various tasks such as doing office duties, video watching and mind you, even sketching. 

The version of the Galaxy Book that we got comes with a relatively measly 64GB. However, there’s also a version of where its internal memory size is double to 128GB. Storage can be expanded to 256GB through a microSD card.

Another upside about the Galaxy Book is the bundled stylus, which is quite as fast and responsive as it gets. The S Pen has the similar size of an ordinary pen. It is also sensitive to pressure. Not bad for having a noob’s chance of trying the likes of drawing, calligraphy or lettering. Plus, Samsung’s Notes provides a very convenient venue to scribe or jot down notes the way you wanted.

Putting the Galaxy Book on the table and using it for multi-activities is an expedient experience. However, doing so can result in having its battery module to become hot and you might find it too inconvenient to hold.  

In terms of imaging, the Galaxy Book’s 5-megapixel camera is capable of matching those entry-level smartphones when it comes to taking selfies. It may not necessarily an upside but somehow, it fares better than any other webcams out there.

Connectivity-wise, the Galaxy Book supports Wi-Fi 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.1. For the wired connection, it comes with a USB 3.1 Type C port with speedy charging support.      

The Samsung Galaxy Book boasts its own enhanced version of keyboard with keys positioned more distant from each other. It is like having the suitable tablet version of a laptop computer or even a desktop OC. With a magnetic cover, which can be slid up or down, it offers an easy way to attach or detach, depending on your preferences and purposes.

Overall, the Samsung Galaxy Book is poised to give others some competition and their users value for their money. It is a multifaceted mobile device for work and leisure.
