Tester av Samsung Galaxy Book Go

79.3% Samsung Galaxy Book Go in review: Silent office notebook | Notebookcheck
The Samsung Galaxy Book Go is a very affordable notebook that is suitable for everyday office tasks and web surfing. With the ARM processor, the laptop offers a very good battery life, but also limitations. We will clarify what these are in our test report.
60% Samsung Galaxy Chromebook Go review: a cheap day-to-day laptop
Källa: T3 Engelska EN→SV
The Samsung Galaxy Chromebook Go is a cheap and durable laptop that will be best for casual day-to-day tasks. To keep the price low, Samsung has made some sacrifices across the screen and hardware which is why it won't be so good for more demanding tasks like photo editing or gaming.

40% Samsung Galaxy Book Go review: A galactic disappointment
Källa: It Pro Engelska EN→SV
The Samsung Galaxy Book Go has plenty of appeal on the surface, but scratching below that reveals it’s only suitable for a very niche demographic: specifically people who have very low hardware demands and prioritise battery life over every other metric. Without sugar coating it, it was hard to open the Galaxy Book Go without a sense of dread. Compatibility issues mean Windows on ARM is still somewhat unappealing despite its ongoing development, and the quality of the display on this laptop is unforgivable for a product released in 2022. We can’t think of a valid reason that justifies how bad it is, even when considering its affordability. The Microsoft Surface Go 3 is available for £499 including the keyboard, but it has a fantastic display for the price and applications like Chrome don’t run like a pig in high heels. If we’ve learned anything from the Samsung Galaxy Book Go, it’s that a tight budget can only be pushed so far and Windows on ARM still needs more time in the oven. In the meantime, you should only consider buying the Galaxy Book Go if you want to experience what it feels like to use a laptop from 2012.

The Samsung Galaxy Book Go is simply a mixed bag, but a hard sell at the very best. This budget Windows laptop – on one hand, has a very good battery life and beautiful design, but there are just too many compromises to make it a worthwhile pick over a Chromebook or VivoBook 15. Overall, the Samsung Galaxy Book Go’s terribly slow performance and overall cheap design all combine for a less desirable machine. For the price, you’re better off spending on the Acer Chromebook Spin 513, and if Windows is a must-have, both the Acer A515-46-R3UB and Asus VivoBook 15 are excellent alternatives.

This is one of three different models of notebooks that have something that few notebooks have, a SIM slot so that when out and about you do not have to rely on your SmartPhone or dodgy open Wi-Fi to stay in touch. While I have seen this before it has only been on a very few Tablets and not on a full notebook like the Samsung Galaxy Book Go.

The Samsung Galaxy Book Go may benefit from an attractive enough design, plenty of ports, and perks like excellent battery life and 4G connectivity, but its performance problems overshadow them all. All the ports in the world don’t matter when a laptop is this slow and frustrating for basic, everyday tasks, and even at a relatively affordable price this is really a false economy. You’re much better off spending a little bit more for better performance elsewhere – or turning to a Chromebook for a budget laptop you won’t want to throw in the bin.

We have to imagine that, some time in 2016 or 2017, Samsung gleefully signed on to the Windows on ARM program, a move which eventually led to the Samsung Galaxy Book Go. We'd also have to imagine that Samsung is not feeling nearly as gleeful right now, because whatever Windows on Arm is supposed to be, the Galaxy Book Go just isn't it. Its failures aren't only the fault of the Snapdragon processor at its heart. That chip sure does its darnedest, and works at a decent clip when running things which are pre-baked to support it. It runs cool, the machine is super-quiet, and the phone-esque features that such a chipset brings (notably instant-on and ridiculous battery life) are a real highlight here. But challenge it in any way and it crumples. Whatever compatibility layer Windows 11 has implemented for x86 apps is generally pretty poor, which we somewhat expected. But we expected slightly more snappiness on the desktop; the 4GB RAM package in this laptop just isn't enough to do more than one or two things at a time.

60% Samsung Galaxy Book Go review: You’re better off with a Chromebook
Källa: Expert Reviews Engelska EN→SV
What to make of the Galaxy Book Go, then? It certainly makes good on its two main promises of great battery life and always-on wireless connectivity, but its awful display is impossible to overlook. That’s a shame, because the keyboard is great and hardware performance isn’t an issue, either. Windows 10 runs beautifully on the Qualcomm chipset, as do Windows on ARM native apps. But the performance penalty incurred when running x86 Win32 apps under emulation really knocks the shine off, as does the current inability to run x64 apps at all. An ARM64 native version of Chrome would go a long way to improving the situation – making the Galaxy Book Go a potential Chromebook killer – but your guess is as good as mine as to whether this will eventually come to fruition. The great battery life, quality keyboard and built-in 4G modem may well attract some interest at the price, and if all you want is a laptop for basic on-the-go productivity then it may suit, but that wretched display and inconsistent app compatibility inevitably lead the Galaxy Book Go to being just a poor man’s MacBook Air.

The Samsung Galaxy Book Go a budget Windows machine riddled with problems. While it may have a nice look to it, everything else is subpar, including the performance. The Galaxy Book Go feels sluggish in the real world, its display is very dim and doesn’t feel well made. It’s only worth a purchase if you’re desperate for Windows at a budget price.

60% Samsung Galaxy Book Go: The $349 laptop that tests your patience
Källa: Laptop Mag Engelska EN→SV
I’d only recommend the Galaxy Book Go to one specific type of consumer: the budget-conscious Samsung Galaxy loyalist who uses non-Chrome browsers (i.e. Edge and Firefox) for ultra-basic, low-intensity workflows. I’d also suggest gifting this laptop to someone you despise — like your mother-in-law. As of this writing, the Gateway laptop only costs $299 at Walmart. One downside, though, is that it’s not as power efficient as the Galaxy Book Go; it lasts 8 hours on a charge. I really wanted to like the Galaxy Book Go — it would have been nice to add it to our best laptops under $500 page. Samsung is one of the most reliable tech brands, but this Windows-on-ARM PC just didn’t make the cut.

Samsung Galaxy Book Go First Impressions: I can’t believe it’s so cheap
Källa: XDA Developers Engelska EN→SV
Thanks to the Snapdragon 7c Gen 2 chipset, a $349 laptop can be thinner and lighter than ever before, and it can get better battery life too (naturally, I haven’t tested battery life yet). It can even have 4G LTE, although this one sadly only has Wi-Fi; indeed, part of the Qualcomm value proposition was originally integrated cellular. But still, the cellular model is going to cost less than pretty much anything you can get with an Intel chip inside of it. I’m really excited to review this laptop. It’s my first Snapdragon 7c review unit, so that’s fun, although I’m not placing any unrealistic expectations on it. And really, I’m excited that it’s doing things at an entry-level price point that weren’t happening before.

Qualcomm Adreno 618:

Bara vissa äldre spel kan spelas flytande med de här grafikkorten. Kretsar med delat minne har fördelen att de utvecklar mindre värme och ger längre batteritid. De duger gott för kontorsbruk, surfande och enklare bildbehandling, men spel och HD-video är inte i syftet med de här kretsarna.

» Mer information finns i vår jämförelse av mobila grafikkort och motsvarande benchmarklista.


SD 7c Gen 2:

ARM-baserad SoC för bärbara Windows-datorer som tillverkas i 8 nm. Integrerar två snabba Kryo 495 Gold-kärnor (Cortex-A76 på upp till 2,55 GHz) för prestanda och 6x små Kryo 495 Silver-kärnor (Cortex-A55) för effektivitet. Erbjuder dessutom ett X15 LTE-modem, WiFi-5, Bluetooth 5.0och en Hexagon 692 NPU.

14.00": Den här skärmstorleken används i klasserna små bärbara datorer och hybrider, men är i övre delen av storleksskalan. De största enheterna i subnotebook-kategorin använder storleken. 

Större skärmar möjliggör högre upplösning så att detaljer som bokstäver blir större och jämnare. Å andra sidan är strömförbrukningen lägre med mindre skärmar och enheterna är överlag mindre, lättare och billigare. » För att ta reda på mer om skärmupplösning, läs vår DPI-lista.


1.38 kg: Bara mycket stora surfplattor väger så här mycket, men bland ultrabooks och mindre bärbara datorer är viktklassen vanlig. 


60.66%: Ett så här dåligt betyg är ovanligt. Det finns väldigt få bärbara datorer som fått sämre betyg.
