The Samsung Galaxy Chromebook is what you get when a company takes a swing at doing everything right, landing all the punches, and delivering on all fronts. When we talk about Chromebooks and what makes them great, the pillars are pretty simple: build quality, screen, keyboard, trackpad, internals/speed, and battery. Most of the other stuff can be forgiven. We can live with sub-par speakers or a different port selection than we’d like, but if the pillars listed above don’t deliver, there’s simply a feeling of incompletion.
With Chromebooks, this is unfortunately the norm. Devices large and small tend to get some or most of the main pillars right, but fail in a few areas. We’re left saying things like, “If the screen was just a bit better - passable, even - then this would feel like the perfect Chromebook.” To be fair, this is true of phones, tablets, Macbooks, iPads and Windows laptops alike, but the feeling is always the same. A few tweaks here and there feel like they could have been made along the way and some of these good devices would go from OK to extraordinary.
Largely, however, this reality just isn’t the case with the Samsung Galaxy Chromebook. Instead, I’m left with a very short list of things I could ask for to be changed (preferences, really) and a single flaw that may make this otherwise-brilliant Chromebook a non-starter for some of you. Other than that one flaw, however, Samsung has delivered a package that undoes what I routinely expect when reviewing a Chromebook.

    I just checked camelcamelcamel and these were $699 on Amazon a month ago. Priced at $799 now. I might wait and see if it gets back to 699 and if it does, I'm going to jump on it.

    Device is great.
    Get a portable battery pack......
    its 2021, you should have one anyway if you "travel" so much an need a 12hr battery...
    Stop forgetting to plug it into the wall at any chance you get. There are work around for such a great user device~~~
    This things is what you need. Nothing is better.
    Please prove me wrong, always into testing out new Chromebooks :)

    Help! I enjoyed your review very much. I wanted a new computer and decided that a Chromebook would be a good choice. Also wanting a premium product was necessary as I do hold onto things for a long time. I have actually purchased a Galaxy Chromebook based in part on your review, and at the reduced price of $699 and consider it a great value, except for the apparent battery life issue. When I googled that topic I read that last year Samsung and Google were actually aware of the problem and in fact were working on the issue. That posting was in May and indicated this information was confirmed by you.
    Unfortunately I have not been able to find any follow up since then. Has there been any update to software that was created by Google/Samsung to correct this issue? I have about 11 more days to decide to keep this computer and would appreciate knowing if this issue has indeed been successfully addressed.
    Many thanks for your interesting and informative reviews. I look forward to hearing from you on this issue as soon as you are able to respond. I may in fact keep it regardless but it would be great to improve on the battery life.

I have a windows laptop that is 2 years old and totally fine. I don't know, I am on the fence. Is it worth it at $799? Thanks in advance.

    It is now down to $800, not bad for 256GB and an AMOLED screen, if I do indeed buy this it would primarily be for watching movies at work (I'm a security guard and sit in my car at work😁). So HBO Max, Disney+, Movies Anywhere, Vudu, not a problem? It does have Bluetooth, right?

    As a home-based casual user, I can always have the device plugged in to overcome the battery limitations when running at full blast.
    My only consideration is the screen size when I'm so used to a minimum 15".
    But all this is mute as it's not available in Australia!
    Bummer.

    First of all I would never pay 1,000 for a Chromebook even if they fix the battery life. If you 1,000 to spend on a laptop find a good windows or MacBook instead of wasting your money. Now I do think Chromebooks work better for someone who is one a low budget as cheap Chromebooks tend to last longer.

    You talked me into it. Got it. Love it. Would I pay $999? No. Black Friday and my company perks discounts saved me $300. I can watch movies, while working. I get over 5 hours (which is enough for me) and I'm not feeling the heat. It's good for what I need it to do and the red looks like some Tony Stark/Iron Man laptop. And I subscribed.

      ​@• cocomuffin • I am really like my Galaxy and am now in the process of putting together a desk set similar to the one that Chrome Unboxed did a video about. I have ordered the Logitech M355 Mouse, the K580 Bluetooth Keyboard, Logitech Z207 Stereo Speakers, and a Samsung USB-C to HDMI adapter to use once I buy an Ultrawide Monitor. I think I am going to buy the Samsung model: J791 monitor. I am moving away from using a Mac and going all in with Chromebook as my main everyday at home and on the road computer.

    Saw this great review when initially posted and held off my purchase to see what would be done with the battery issue. Just pulled the trigger 3 days ago since Best Buy has these on sale for $899 and my old, Samsung Chromebook 2 was starting to have issues. My experience in 3 days of use? Wth Chrome OS 86, playing music at than more than decently loud levels, brightness around 80-85 percent, watching youtube videos at at least HD, probaly around 10-15 Chrome windows open, keyboard backlit to around 30-40 percent, I'm getting at least 7 hours. Also, turned off Bluetooth and Ambient Colors but other than that I'm not being carefull or mindull of battery use so clearly Samsung/Google have done some updates. Still, this thing is the Porsche of Chromebooks It is built like a Porsche and performs like one. Get one if you can!

    at some point i just gotta ask the obvious question: whats the actual point of this product? Its specs are very good and all, but at the end of the day its still "just" a Chromebook that isnt able to do absolutely anything above and beyond what Play Store offers.....yes crazy screen and i5 etc...but for what? Its not like you can really take much advantage of that stuff while using such a limited OS....you cannot even properly edit a video on this thing....and then pay 1K bucks for it?! I might be missing the point here, but i seriously dont get it....at least me, when i think of chromebooks i think of something like a Lenovo Duet...a small compact, light, affordable half-tablet-half-laptop kind of deal for an unbeatable price....and its specs is just enough to run most things 99% of ChromeOS users will run anyway and in the box you will find the kick-stand AND the removable keyboard included, for 299 bucks....so...yeah....i dont get it....

      @hsv most people who need to work more than 4 or 5 hours away from an outlet most likely would not be looking at Chromebooks anyway. Even if they did, it's a trade off. Every single computing device has a trade off, NONE give accurate battery estimates and some users reported upwards of 6 hours on the SGC. Since not every single person getting more than 4 hours battery life reports their findings, we will never know the actual battery life on this. I don't take a handful of tech reviewers' findings for battery life as codified truth as their is no standardized testing for battery life. A consensus on a small subset of people does not equal absolute truth. Also if you are a power user, chances are your laptop that lasts 8 + hours probably weighs less than he SGC with a battery bank. Yes battery life is a flaw, but to me not fatal. Many electronics have flaws that people learn to live with because they can live with it. Also we are indoctrinated with numbers and specs. In 2020 my device MUST have USB C, headphone jack ,10th gen, 8 hours + battery life, etc. We demand these things because some manufacturers gives it to us. Without even realizing what we actually need day to day. For 6 months I told myself I'd never get it because I don't need 4k screen, battery life is shit, I hate 16:9 screen. This after seeing reviews. Yes reviews can inform our decision but they shouldn't make our decision for us. For me, there is no other device this sleek, light and with this design language so the trade off of low battery life is worth it (only other one is Samug Galaxy Flex - I prefer Chrome OS) I love it! Worts and all. I gladly would pay $999 Not sure of camera as I don't use it. I got my open box for $600 but it's brand new. Best Buy having Black Friday sale on these for $799.

      Just pick one up and try it. I've heard people say it lasts 6 to 8 hours. ALSO I can easily be swayed to NOT get it because of this review BUT what I realized is, I have to have a device in my hands for a few days to determine what I can compromise on. I find mostly, the negative reviews are overblown and I end up loving the device more than I thought I would!

    Why don't you do an update and show what the battery time is now, given the "but they promised to improve it" line in the review.
    Has anything been done that improved it even a minute?
    Is it ONLY the screen given other 10th gen i5 last long. Has you never asked Samsung about offering a 2k screen that would look good but actually last? I'd love to get one and replace the screen immediately - if a decent price could be had.

      you can use it while charging, and hook up Galaxy S8. You must have a gmail account to set it up though. Just create a gmail address to set it up but then never use it. You can check aol mail on the browser

    I may buy this despite the low charge life. I went to Best Buy to see other Chromebooks and was disappointed with the screen size. (I knew I would be, but had to see for myself.) So, if I'm going to suffer a small screen, it may as well be the best one out there.

    Thank for your review I bought one, not worrying about the battery life I am usually someplace I can plug in. My girlfriend loves also and has taken it over and she is Mac or nothing. Can you recommend a Chromebook in a 15.6 inch that has a keyboard as good as the Samsung Galaxy? Thanks

      nothing exists that is this good in 15.6. They're all cheap, heavy, chunky, dim screens and look like for special needs students. However, Asus C436 is 14 inch and VERY nice.

      exactly. People who see a negative review just trash it and don't even consider that their own use could be better.

      You aren't the first to say this... I assume you have it on a reasonable brightness? How is the pen (input & usability within ChromeOS? And how is it in tablet mode? I'm in the UK and patiently waiting (hoping) for it to be released here.

    Samsung needs to update this exact device with an ARM CPU and the exact same 1080P FHD QLED screen that ships with the Galaxy book flex laptops.
    Also, perhaps a color other than hot red.
    That will take care of the battery life and heat issues. It will also lower the price. Since the new QLED screens by Samsung look fantastic. These minor changes will make this device the king of All Chrome books.

    For those who are sad about the battery life, look up the Samsung Book Flex. It's frickin amazing. I mean it's not a 4k display, only a 1080p, but that battery life 10-12 hours, Danggg!

    I ended up going back to this Galaxy after exchanging it for the HP 360 for $399. The screen just killed the HP for me and the was only $125 more and will usually be plugged in. HP was almost unusable on my balcony even in the shade with brightness at 100% which I don’t like doing. HP’s keyboard is fantastic and the reason had it, but everything else is so much better on this Galaxy. I write much for Runnergy blog and text is so much sharper.
