Samsung Galaxy Book2 Review

Score: 9.63/10

Samsung Galaxy Book2 is a fascinating Windows device launched a few years ago, which features a 2950 MHz Hexa-Core processing unit, a really big 12 inches display, an 8 MP back-facing camera and a 5 megapixels front-facing camera. That's everything we have to say? No, it's only the shortest summary in the world.

Being just 0.3 inches thick,the Book2 is incredibly thin and practical. The Book2 only has 11.32 inches long, but it still manages to hold a 12" display. This tablet is for sale in color silver. Apparently Samsung forgot about optimizing the weight in this 28 ounces tablet device. Talking about its materials, the Book2 is majorly made of Aluminum .

Samsung sells the Samsung Galaxy Book2 with a great Hexa-Core CPU speeding at 2950 megahertz, packed into a Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 SDM850 chip with a large 4 GB RAM memory. A great aspect of this tablet is its astonishing 128 GB internal storage memory and an external memory slot, allowing you to store tons of apps, games, songs, photos and videos without thinking about filling it.

Samsung designed the Samsung Galaxy Book2 with a good looking 12" display, and a 2160 x 1440 resolution, which makes all photos and videos look great.

This tablet offers wifi capability (and it can be shared with other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE-A 4G really quick connection type and also HSPA+ connection type (which is a lower speed 4G technology) and fast 3G connectivity, using HSDPA and HSUPA technologies. The Book2 works with a Nano SIM card for GSM connection.

This tablet has two cameras, an 8 megapixels back facing camera and a 5 MP front camera. It is also able to shoot videos in 4K 3840x2160 at 30 fps. The camera also counts with time lapse video.

This tablet counts with a big 6120 mAh non-replaceable battery that can keep it running for several hours, although you may find yourself looking for a place to charge it after some heavy use. An issue to evaluate is that this device's battery isn't removable so you won't be able to replace it when it begins to last shorter, whereas with such a huge battery size you will probably discard this tablet device before it becomes a real problem.

The Book2 also features a handful of interesting features as Fingerprint Scanner, Bluetooth (enables communication with other portable tablets and accessories) and GPS Localization, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This tablet is priced $ 1000, not a really offer for this kind of tablet device. This device is very appropiate for you no matter if you love photography, will use it for work, want it to play games or will use it as a social tablet device.
