Galaxy Book Flex 13.3 in review: Samsung convertible with bright display
With the Galaxy Book Flex 13.3, Samsung delivers a very stable and visually appealing convertible. The screen isn’t quite as good as we could observe with the Galaxy Book Ion 13.3, for example, but it’s still one of the better ones of its kind. The touchscreen reacts very directly to touch input, and working with the included S Pen is also easy. The keyboard and ClickPad, which provide a pleasant feedback, deserve praise as well. The fact that the connectivity is a bit poor can also be easily overcome thanks to the two Thunderbolt 3 ports.
Buyers of the Samsung Galaxy Book Flex 13.3 get an appealing Windows convertible that is especially distinguished by its good input devices.
In the end, there are only minor aspects to criticize. One example is the fact that microSD cards are housed in a fixed slot that can only be removed with a special tool. This makes the frequent swapping of memory cards unnecessarily difficult. Also the fact that the screen and the base don’t lie completely flush with each other in tablet mode somewhat tarnishes the good overall impression. Convertibles like the Fujitsu Lifebook U939X or the Dell Latitude 7200 are a bit more user-friendly.
