One thing that can really be said about the Samsung Galaxy Book Flex is that it looks really, really nice – especially if you get the blue version. Its built-in S Pen also attracts a lot of attention, as does the bright QLED display for which it’s designed. There is a 15.6-inch model and 13.3-in model (the “Alpha” version), both of which have an ultra-bright QLED touchscreen.
The Quantum Dot technology allows you to use the pen for just about anything. Draw whatever you want or take notes – the process is as natural and fluid as possible.
The aluminum material from which it’s made really makes this Galaxy Book look refined. The Samsung logo is placed around the center-left area on the lid and really catches the eye with shiny letters. The top bezel manages to squeeze a small 720p webcam. The large trackpad takes up almost half the deck space beneath the keyboard. When not using the Pen, the trackpad provides a smooth experience for interacting with the Galaxy Book.
You just need to be careful when typing due to the right shift key being made smaller in order to make room for the fingerprint scanner key. For some users, this might take some getting used to.
Some of the specs with the Samsung Galaxy Book Flex vary, including the display. Regardless of whether you choose the 15.6-inch model or 13.3-inch model, you can choose 8GB or 12GB of memory.
