Although it lags a little bit and that some of its features such as the android apps compatibility is not working so well, as a laptop with light weight and that is 360° reversible, it is pretty awesome.
Purchased as a replacement for a laptop for netflix, it has evolved into an app machine I use for my numerous apps I use on my phone.
It doesn't have a lot of travel and the keys do feel a bit 'cheap'.However, if you type a lot you'll have no problems at all.The machine is light, very attractive and thin.It's responsive and quick.I cannot speak to battery life as I've not run it flat yet.This machine is replacing an Acer C720 and I'm extremely pleased with it.Obviously with Chromebooks setting up is extremely simple.Running Android apps on the Samsung Chromebook Plus is very good.
I was looking for a replacement for my MacBook, but I didn't want or need to spend so much money on a laptop that I would mainly be doing web browsing on (I can use my desktop for anything that requires real muscle).
The two biggest gripes that people have (the small keyboard and the lack of keyboard back lighting), are over exaggerated and I have never had a problem with them.Pros:- amazing screen- ChromeOS is a pleasure to work with- keyboard & trackpad are excellent- build quality is better than $1000+ windows/mac laptops- battery life is awesome- integration with google services is seamless- very easy to use for both novices and professionals- touch screen and stylus are a good bonusCons:- OP1 chipset can stutter sometimes, if you'll be doing HEAVY work on Chrome you might want to go with a chromebook with an m3 processor or betterOverall: This is the best money I have spent on a tech product in a long time.
The Chromebook isn't it.
The reason I bought this computer is I wanted a lap top with a touch screen, and what attracted me to this specific one is the description that the product can run android apps from the google play store.
I don't even know where to begin with this half baked product, In my opinion Samsung should have never released this product in its condition, I'm a diehard Samsung fan boi and this item thoroughly disappointed me, I should just be glad it didn't explode on me, the idea was great but the execution was a flop, Google never delivered on the software and Samsung failed on the hardware, as soon as I started using it I noticed the software and hardware issues, the screen was flickering randomly and the build quality was questionable, clearly not Galaxy grade material, I was going to try the Chromebook Pro version but Amazon pulled that before I could order it, my only other safe option at this point is the Galaxy Tab S3....
It has a great HD picture but that's about it, it runs smoothly but if you are a student looking for a reliable laptop this one is not for you.
I should mention that I was using a 128 GB microSD card , and moved as many things there (such as downloads) as possible.The problem was so bad that I assumed I had a defective unit, so I returned it and ordered another.
