Our opinion on this Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro

Samsung returns to the French market with its Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro, versatile dark Ultrabook with 15-inch Full HD AMOLED screen with much more faithful colors than average which is efficient thanks to its 16 GB of RAM and its Alder Lake-H Core i7-1260P processor with 12 hybrid cores and Iris graphics solution Xe capable of running modest games. Equipped with fast SSD storage which reinforces its responsiveness, this thin and light laptop PC which runs Windows 11 benefits from a backlit keyboard, a fingerprint reader or even connectivity with 2 USB-C, Thunderbolt 4 and Wi-Fi ax.

This Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro faces the competition

This Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro is now available at Darty and the Fnac. He positions himself as one of the alone in its category to offer a screen with such faithful colors with Thunderbolt connectivity as well as such a recent processor (Alder Lake).

Chassis, connectivity, screen of this Samsung-Galaxy-Book2-Pro

With its thin and light anthracite design, this versatile laptop has a discreet look.

Its connectivity is good, consisting of 2 USB-C including 1 Thunderbolt 4, Wi-Fi ax wireless modules (more recent and efficient than Wi-Fi ax) and Bluetooth 5.1 to connect and communicate remotely, an audio port, a practical HDMI video output to easily connect it to a TV or monitor for example, or even 1 USB 3.2 (compatible with USB 2.0) guaranteeing transfers up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 if you connect a USB 3.0 device.

You can authenticate by fingerprint recognition using the integrated fingerprint reader, via Windows Hello technology.

The chiclet keyboard can of course be backlit, which is practical so that you can better distinguish its keys in a dimly lit environment.

The screen of this Ultrabook will appeal to a maximum of users because it is AMOLED which implies much more faithful colors than average with very deep blacks, low latency but also significant viewing angles, both horizontal and vertical. Furthermore, as it is anti-reflective treated, the screen offers better visibility than a shiny panel in a bright environment (eg outdoors). It is also very suitable for displaying High Definition content such as videos thanks to its precise Full HD definition and its 16:9 format, while its Eye Care certification reduces harmful blue light by 6.5%.

Performance, autonomy of this Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro

This Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro may interest those looking for a discreet laptop for everyday versatile use on the go.

As it is based on an Intel Alder Lake-P Core i7-1260P processor with 12 hybrid cores associated with 16 GB of RAM, it delivers solid general performance capable of satisfying a maximum of users.
Creators will particularly appreciate this core since it guarantees much faster processing than a classic Quad Core and 8 GB DDR4 under software using multi-core (and therefore the 12 cores of the Alder Lake-P), such as in video conversion or photo editing.

The Alder Lake-P Core i7 houses the Iris Xe, the unique graphics solution of this configuration which therefore does not have a dedicated graphics card. This versatile Ultrabook is therefore not designed for demanding graphics work such as demanding games. On the other hand, thanks to the Iris Xe, we can still watch photos and videos but also play modest titles.

On the storage side, we find a silent SSD while being more energy efficient than a hard drive, more resistant to shocks and much faster. As a result, the SSD ensures much better fluidity and responsiveness on a daily basis than a simple hard drive.

Thanks to the SSD, processing, starts/stops and software launches are much faster than with a hard drive for example, and we can access online game cards more quickly.
And of course, if you need more space, you can rely on an external storage unit. Choosing a USB-C/Thunderbolt/USB 3.0 device is then an interesting option for obtaining fast transfers.

Finally on the autonomy side, while waiting for more concrete tests, count on around 8 hours of battery operation in light use (logically it would be much more in practice) for this versatile AMOLED Ultrabook whose compactness, finesse and lightness are more interesting than the medium make transportation easier.
