5. Samsung Galaxy Book, excellent display and top performance for creative and graphic designers
Here is a very performing device, one of the spearheads of the Samsung world: the Galaxy Book.
It is the only one to mount Windows 10 among samsung tablets.
Samsung has worked hard to perfect the 2 i n 1 format and with the Samsung Galaxy Book it certainly surpassed itself, surpassing the Galaxy TabPro S last year.
Although there have been great improvements compared to the other previously proposed tablets and the product remains all in all excellent, this Windows tablet continues to have something less than its rivals.
What sets it apart, however, is the great value for money, although it remains prohibitive for those who want a cheap tablet, in fact we always remain among the high-end convertible devices.
The hardisc is 250 giga, so very large, the processor is an extremely high performance i5 but the one that immediately catches the eye are the 8 gigabytes of ram that make it perfect for any multimedia use or in any case particularly taxing of volatile memory.
The rooms are a 13 Mp for the back and the 5 mega pixels for the front, an excellent match therefore.
It is equipped with two USB-C ports, a microSD slot and a mini jack output, the connectivity is 802.11 a / b / g / n / ac Wi-Fi (2 x 2 MIMO), Bluetooth 4.1 BLE.
It weighs just over 750 grams, therefore very light for the performance it offers.
It is sold in both the 10.6 and 12-inch versions, for those who need more monitor space.
The materials of which it is composed certainly do not shout to the miracle, but one cannot even complain, it must be said that the build quality of the display is excellent and impressive, a little more lacking is the plastic frame in which this it is wrapped.
This plastic, however, seen from afar gives the illusion of aluminum, so it aesthetically does its dirty work.
The edges are rounded giving the clear impression that this is first a tablet and as a second a laptop.
It is sold with a S-Pen stylus and a backlit keyboard included in the price, these run fortunately do not require any charge.
This is not only a great tablet to consume multimedia products, but is also suitable for « creators », in fact with these great performances you can not worry about the so-called bottlenecks, the use of Photoshop and Premier is smooth and yes they can post produce videos and images without any problems.
Writing or drawing with the nib is very easy and smooth, there are no delays, everything runs as smoothly as it should be in a top of the range product.
It is certainly an ideal tool for those who want to have a small light workshop with them without having to carry around the most bulky laptop, therefore for graphic or musical creatives.
Even the screen is well calibrated and pleasant to use.
The average battery life is between 5 and 6 hours, not much if compared to similar tablets, but we must always remember that in this case you are not running iOS or Android but Windows 10, so it’s a duration absolutely reasonable.
All in all a great product for those who do not want to compromise with multimedia performance and want a portable workstation, let’s think for example of a youtuber who wanted to record and edit their videos on the road.
