Samsung Galaxy Book 12 SM-W720NZKAXAR Review – The Perfect Companion For Your Samsung Smartphone

Samsung now has jumped into the two in one laptop market with their Galaxy series. Their new series now is not coming with Android operating system like see in these couple years, but it offers us a true desktop experience into our hands. The company is actually really wants to compete with Microsoft on this market by providing lighter and slimmer choice for the consumers. The laptop is also fully compatible to connect with Samsung phone through their integrated system. This is a good reason for anyone who has their smartphone.

There are so many worth things to say about it and I should probably say it as the best choice in detachable laptop with its great functionality. The super AMOLED is display is amazing and delivers vivid images that supports of HDR content.

I guess it should be interested to see at it closely and find the best and worst thing from it. That is what we are going talk about here. We are going to talk about it further on this article. To make it easier for you to understand, let’s we jump into the article.


The Book 12 is actually not designed like standard laptop where we have full screen keyboard, but it feels like is designed for tablet usage like we find on Ipad or their Android tablet. Both of screen and keyboard could be detached and surprisingly took me a while to figure out how to do it. It has four different viewing angles that you are able to set as your needs. Whatever your position, the display looks amazing and making it so comfortable to use for many hours.

As for dimension, the 2.6 pounds of weight and 0.6 inches are more than enough to make it as the thinnest and lightest laptop in the market. The system is only bit heavier than Surface Pro 4 that has total weight for 2.4 pounds. It’s not bad especially its still lighter than Acer Switch 12.

The company is placed the type-C ports and the headphone jack on the right side while keeping the only slot for SIM tray on the left side. On this case, there are two different models are available. The first one is with only WIFI connection and the second one is with SIM card support, so be make sure to check it before you decide to buy it. Then, the power button is placed on the top and you will see of both of 5 MP and 13 MP cameras on the front and back of its body.

Galaxy Book 12 3The system is featured of super AMOLED display that combined with 2.160 x 1.440 resolution. The display is so vivid and crisp and probably the best one that I have seen until now. Streaming of 1080p video on Youtube is resulted an amazing experience since I was able to see the detail clearly. The result is even better if you could find the video with HDR support since it allows you to see better range of color.

The display produces better color reproduction in comparable with other products. You can easily notice with bare eyes without needed to have specific device. The color reproduction is probably one hundred percent higher than Surface Pro. If you are looking for convertible laptop with best display, then I cannot recommend better choice than this one.

Keyboard And Battery Life

Let’s talk about the best and worst thing from it. The keyboard on this case is giving a good experience on typing. It’s required of 80 grams of force for getting accurate result on typing. I am easily able to type for more than 80 words for a minute and that is a good result since the size of keyboard is smaller than standard machine. I guess you should not have much problem on it.

The only worst thing I found here is located on its battery last that not that good. The battery only lasts for around 7 hours with WIFI and probably shorter with the LTE mode. The battery draining like a hell thanks to its amazing display. This is probably the thing we need to pay for its screen quality. Luckily, the charging process is done faster and fast with the type-C ports. I usually just plug of my Anker power bank when the battery is running out.
