Galaxy Book2 Pro 15 Review

 Test Galaxy Book2 Pro 15 an ultrabook that signs the winning return of Samsung


Samsung is making its return to the French request with its Galaxy Book2. The Pro interpretation is equipped with an AMOLED panel of elevation and an Intel Core i7 processor, all in a little lower than 12 mm thick and kg; a real stint of strength.


After two times marked by fort equipment of PC druggies, Samsung decides to make its return to this request. The Korean manufacturer thus arrives with the Galaxy Book2 declined, where the interpretation Pro is equipped with an AMOLED screen, and the interpretation 360 has a screen that switches to tablet mode — both being accretive. After the Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro 360 13, it’s over to the stint of the Galaxy Book2 Pro to pass into our hands.


The design of the Galaxy Book2 Pro 15 is particularly sober in its black interpretation. Veritably monolithic in appearance, its lattice is slightly meliorated on the frontal part. The aluminum cover sports a sandblasted finish analogous to that offered by Apple on its MacBooks. The rest of the lattice is made of plastic, with a piano treated against fingerprints. Despite its predictability and decoration weight, it has a satisfying severity. It’s, therefore, more rigid than the LG Gram 16, without still reaching the position of an all-aluminum lattice of an Apple MacBook Pro.

The opening of the hood gives regard to the AMOLED panel with a lustrous finish. This bone takes place in a particularly candescent plastic shell, but with fine borders.

The backlit keyboard is adorned with a three-column numeric keypad with a launch button in its upper-right corner that also acts as a print anthology. Typing on the keyboard doesn’t suffer from any blights. The keys are veritably slightly twisted and the quality picture.

The wide touchpad is in the same tone, with smooth gliding and 2, 3, or 4- cutlet Windows gestures impeccably taken into account.

The connectivity is varied and will satisfy all druggies. There are two Thunderbolt 4 harbors and an HDMI2.0 harborage on the left edge, a USB3.0 harborage, mini-jack, and a microSD anthology on the other side.

For wireless connectivity, Samsung didn’t bother and chose the Intel AX211 chip compatible with wifi 6E with an accretive speed of Gb/ s and Bluetooth5.2. The 720p webcam located above the screen, on the other hand, isn’t a miracle. It lacks details, indeed in good lighting conditions.

The cooling system of the Book2 Pro 15 is composed of two suckers and two radiators connected to a heat pipe that evacuates the calories of the 12th generation Intel processor. After a little further than 15 garbling beats, we plant a maximum temperature of 52 ° C above the function keys; the keys in the center of the keyboard are around 41 ° C. The temperature is a little high, it must be honored, Samsung has favored the operating silence, indeed in the so-called Optimized mode, since the noise nuisance doesn’t exceed 34 dB. You could use the Book2 Pro 15 in a library without the people at the coming table noticing. However, you must switch to Performance mode which releases the addict rotation speed; the noise also rises to dB, If you want to profit from further harmonious cooling and lower temperatures.

The disassembly of the Galaxy Book2 Pro 15 is originally simple 4 Phillips screws under removable pads that hold the shell. Still, the junking of the shell proves to be particularly painful. It’s necessary to find a switch at the hinges and also collectively release each of the holding clips that are spaced 2 or 3 cm piecemeal.

Inside, only the battery and SSD are removable. The RAM is soldered to the reverse of the motherboard, and the wifi chip is soldered to a supplementary board. Note in passing the presence of an alternate harborage. 2, free, to add an SSD to the right of the right addict.


The Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro 15 is furnished with the Intel Core i7-1260P processor joined by 16 GB of DDR5 RAM and a 512 GB SSD. This mongrel processor is composed of 4 so-called” high-performance “hyperthreaded cores and 8 so-called” provident” cores, all for a thermal envelope of 28W. During our garbling, the P- cores worked at average GHz, with peaks at GHz, while the theE-cores stabilize at average GHz, outside of GHz.

On all of our tests to determine the performance indicator, the Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro turns out to be a little faster than the Asus ZenBook 14 Oled yet equipped with the same processor (115 against 108). This is explained by a more aggressive setting on the part of Samsung, with an envelope of 51 watts allowed for 28 seconds-against 28 watts during the same period of time for the Asus-avant-garde-garden stabilization at 28 watts.

The Samsung Galaxy Book2 Pro 15 drops the LG Gram 16, of similar confines and which stagnates at an indicator of only 73.

The performance of the onboard SSD, on the other hand, has nothing extraordinary, Samsung has made the choice of a model that seems reserved for assemblers.

Therefore it reaches GB/ s in reading and GB/s.However, druggies who would add a briskly alternate SSD would be limited by this original SSD when transferring between the two storehouse units, in practice, this is further than enough for everyday use without retardations on Windows.


Quite logically, it’s in its product chains that Samsung has picked the screen that equips the Galaxy Book2 Pro 15. And he didn’t choose anything, since there’s an AMOLED panel of Full HD elevation (1920 x 1080 px) at 60 Hz. The manufacturer has thus remained fairly conservative by using a simple Full HD panel without HDR and with a refresh rate all the most classic.

Under our inquiry, the colors of this arbor are particularly faithful. Its Delta E is much lower than 3, the threshold under which the eye no longer perceives colorimetric drifts. Due to the generality of Oled panels, the discrepancy is nearly horizonless and the response time is nearly zero.

The color temperature (7248 K), on the other hand, is slightly more advanced than the videotape standard (6500 K) and thus slightly pulls on the blue.

The maximum brilliance of 398 cd/ m 2 doesn’t break the ceiling but is in the normal of the lately tested PCs.

Eventually, the antireflection treatment is veritably good since its reflectance rate is only on this lustrous arbor, not veritably far from that of matte crossbeams, which is below 20.


Samsung has arranged two speakers under the lattice. The disadvantage of this placement is the inhibition of the speakers when the PC is laid on soft material. When harkening, the Galaxy Book2 Pro 15 offers a nanny sound form, with still a little meager soundstage. The volume is satisfactory and there’s no need to spark any sound improvement software. We advise you to leave all Dolby Access advancements impaired to get the most natural sound picture.

The headphone affair delivers relatively respectable performance. Each statement is within the normal of our comparison. Only the power affair is adjourned, 110 mVrms, which is too fair to power a high impedance covering headset, for illustration.

Mobility/ Autonomy

As far as measures, Samsung makes a fortress. In any case, it’s from the side of the consistence (cm) that the Korean intrigues, If the reach (cm) and length (cm) of the Galaxy Book2 Pro 15 are inside the standard. Also, what might be said about its weight of just 1125 g on our scale. It’s likewise not the 65 W quick bowl that will overload your sack ( just 163 g with its USB-C string).

With similar measures, Samsung could have compromised on the size of the battery, but not at each. The father of the Galaxy managed to house a 68 Wh battery allowing the Book2 Pro 15 to last for 10 h 30 min under our usual protocol (Netflix playback under Chrome, screen brilliance calibrated at 200 cd/ m 2). A performance to be confided, especially since it does better than the Asus Zenbook 14 Oled (8 h 40 min) with the same processor with a 75 Wh battery. So it should be relatively possible to keep a full day down from a bowl or a backup battery.
