Sam­sung gal­axy Book

Mul­ti­faceted Mo­bil­ity

HWM (Philippines) - - Gear - By Nestor Domingo Jr.

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 at the price of al­most php 45,000.

Not only that this 2-in-1 tablet com­puter boasts a stun­ning dis­play and a sleek de­sign, it also of­fers in­cred­i­ble per­for­mance that 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 pro­ces­sor backed by 4Gb ram. Weigh­ing 644 grams, it is light but packed with fea­tures that is 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 it where its in­teral mem­ory size is dou­bled 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-task­ing ac­tiv­i­ties is an ex­pe­di­ent ex­pe­ri­ence. How­ever, do­ing so can also 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 be nec­es­sar­ily an up­side but some­how, it fares bet­ter than any other we­b­cams out there.

Con­nectvity-wise, the Gal­axy book sup­ports Wi-fi 802.11ac annd blue­tooth 4.1. For wired con­nec­tion, it comes with a USB 3.1 type C port with speedy charg­ing sup­port.

the 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 pc. With a mag­netic cover, which can be slided up or down, it of­fers and easy way to at­tach and de­tach, de­pend­ing on your pref­er­ences and pur­poses.

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