Samsung Galaxy Book 12-inch Review

Score: 80 / 100

Samsung Galaxy Book 12-inch is a breath-taking Windows device launched many years ago, coming with a huge 12" screen, a high performance 3.1 GHz Dual-Core processor, and 2 cameras, a 13 MP back facing camera and a 5 megapixels front facing camera.

The Book 12-inch is only for sale in silver color. Samsung appears to have forgotten about weight optimization in this 26.6 oz tablet device. Talking about its materials quality, this tablet is mostly made of Metal . The Book 12-inch is just 0.29" thick, taking it to the thinnest device's category. This tablet is quite a compact tablet, taking into consideration it has a 12" screen and it has just 11.47" long.

Samsung decided to power this tablet device with a Intel Core i5 system chip, holding a high-tech Dual-Core CPU speeding at 3100 megahertz with a big 8 GB RAM. This tablet comes with an excellent 256 GB internal storage memory and an SD memory slot, allowing you to store hundreds of apps without thinking about how much storage capacity is left.

This tablet is equipped with two cameras, a 13 mega-pixels back camera and a 5 megapixels front facing camera. It is capable of shooting videos up to 1920x1080 (Full HD).

This tablet is equipped with a good looking 12-inches display with a 2160 x 1440 resolution, which makes it hard to see the pixels taking part of the display.

This tablet includes wi-fi connection (although it can't be shared with other devices around, as a mobile hotspot). The Samsung Galaxy Book 12-inch doesn't have a SIM card, because it doesn't support GSM services.

This device counts with a 5070 mAh incredible non-removable battery, enough to provide this tablet with an extremely long battery life. An issue to evaluate is that the Book 12-inch's battery is non-replaceable so you can't buy a new battery when it starts to live shorter, although with this big battery you will probably replace this portable tablet before that happens.

This tablet also includes a handful of nice features like Bluetooth (4.1 ) and GPS (Global Positioning System), and a couple sensors likeLight Sensor and Accelerometer.

This tablet is probably the right one for you no matter if you want it to take lots of photos, will use this device to play tons of games, will use it as a work tablet device or will use this device mostly for internet broswing and social networks.
