Rated 5 out of 5 by StiffyMcStuffin from Amazing!!! I absolutely love this chromebook. The only real complaint I've heard is the battery life. But honestly I haven't noticed it being an issue at all if you keep the brightness at a reasonable level. Also with 4k oled screen, totally worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MYKALONA from Nothing but a cool red paperweight! DO NOT BUY this laptop! It broke within 5 months after receiving it. At that time, Samsung took it back and gave us a new one, but it still never worked well, many glitches and was very sensitive. We needed to send it back AGAIN for repairs and the laptop was still unreliable. Very expensive, but did not live up to its high price point. In summary, 4 months after it's warranty ran out, it died again, so this time we are buying elsewhere. Lesson learned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chrmbk from Touch pad problems Very great chromebook product, however I'm not too sure if I'd reccomend. The only problem I have with this device is that the Touch pad starts to glitch and eventually goes out(temporarily). This usually starts to happen when I use dual touch or click and drag. To make it work again, I have to close my chromebook and wait a few seconds. Thanks to the touchscreen, I can still get the job done, however with this being my daily laptop for work, it's still a big inconvenience! I've contacted customer support for help, restarted my device multiple times, and nothing has changed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Azian from Trackpad Issues that Samsung Chooses to Ignore purchased the grey version of this chromebook for my daughter in college and on day 1 the touchpad failed. returned and got this red version. 6 months in the touchpad fails and i get it replaced under warranty, no biggie. well, 5 months later the replaced touchpad fails. get that replaced under warranty again, no biggie. so now my warranty is up (it's been 5 months) and the touchpad is failing again. but this time samsung won't replace it because it's under warranty. they can see there is clearly an issue here but they don't care. check the forums, the comment section, or buy one yourself and watch the touchpad fail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RSL Indy from Beautiful Slug` maybe i just got a dud. but even after a warranty repair, this chromebook isn't performing as well as my old one that has much lower specs. maybe it's the chrome os. but for a device with an i5 processor to run this poorly, and for the price, i'm really disappointed. the display is great. the device is lightweight and attractive. but even typing this review on it is painful with the lag. i was looking for the use of android apps on a laptop platform. the samsung tablets are high performers, but they require a flat surface to work in "laptop" mode due to their miserable keyboards. i hoped this would be the solution. it is not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by YoungProdigy from Screen is 4k but flickers a lot watching videos! i was expecting a good experience because i was buying a samsung product. however, the laptop was unpleasant to use as the screen flickered, and i couldn't find a fix. it made watching videos distracting. the system also became unbearably hot when using it on my lap. the battery life was disappointing as it didn't last half of what samsung claimed it would. i finally had time to return it today but can't because today is unluckily the fifteenth day. i thought they at least gave a month window for returns. overall, i regret my purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kyle from Do Not Buy!!! i was originally going to buy a different chromebook, but i let the salesman at best buy talk me into this model. worst computer mistake i have ever made. while it does look good and the specs are good, the touchpad has failed twice in the six months i have owned it. each time i have to ship it out (spending my own money) and do not have it for roughly 2 weeks while it is being repaired. if i wanted a computer with no working touchpad i would have bought a tablet. despite all the other features this chromebook has, it is all made worthless by the constant touchpad failures. i do not recommend this product at all because of these issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JDM3 from The features perfect...It was beautiful, but... we purchased the grey chromebook in april '20. it was what we needed as everything went online, and my son was schooling virtually via. it stopped working suddenly with no warning in september '20; 5 months for a brand new, higher end chromebooks. we were thrilled to have another samsung product. this was unfortunate. we thought it was a fluke. we received a refund and ordered a fiesta red one in september. it was beautiful and worked just as well, synced to my phone. all was well, until 2 days ago, which is not even 10 months for this one. once again, totally dead. it won't charge or turn on. so it may appear to be perfect for a few months, but if you are using this everyday, and it is getting its use, it will not last. don't get it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Beth from Wanted To Love, But Had A Few Issues when i first got this laptop, i absolutely adored it. the color and display were absolutely gorgeous. i loved the flexible design and touch screen abilities. unfortunately, after only a few months my mouse pad began to get fickle. my touch screen was fully functional, but sometimes i would not be able to move my cursor using the mouse pad. the screen is also not very durable due to its slim design. i only had the laptop for a few months when one night i closed it normally and opened it a few hours later to find spider web fractures all over the screen. slightly disappointing for the money spent, but would have loved without these two issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RGF1 from Problematic Chromebook ordered the product in april 2021 and just a month later started having issues with the screen locking up that required power cycles to recover. it progressively got worse until finally did not turn on at all. sent it back under warranty and was returned with a new motherboard. in december 2022 the touchpad started becoming unresponsive. a power cycle would restore touchpad operation for a shorter and shorter period of time. performed a full restore after started getting a system critical failure screen that said to reload the operating system when sitting idle for a few minutes. the os failure screen and touchpad failure continued to occur after the full restore from the thumb drive load of the os. the touchpad is now at the point it works for a couple of minutes after a restart.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cool Cool from AWESOME Chromebook. Terrible Battery Life this thing is really great. looks awesome, is fast, has plenty of storage for work, and cloud-based stuff. i recommend it. unless you are not going to be near an outlet. the battery life on this thing is trash. like trash trash. if you are going to be on the move for 6 or more hours, get something else. if you are going to be leaving your office and bringing this into a meeting for up to a few hours, it is perfect for you. oh and i read some reviews that said many of the streaming apps don't support this thing's beautiful display- also true. i didn't get this for movies though. i got it for short-term on-the-move meetings. 5 stars all around. except battery life. negative one star.

Rated 5 out of 5 by B Dawg from Best Chromebook Out There this chromebook is, frankly, the best on the market. the specs make this system very quick and speedy, and the screen is absolutely gorgeous. plus, this system includes a stylus and a micro sd card slot for expanded storage. one downside is that the keyboard is "off." i can't quite place it, but the keyboard seems misaligned to me, and i find myself having typos again and again. another downside is that the speakers are puny (i listen through headphones so this is a moot issue for me) overall, i love this chromebook and am glad that this system is on the market

Rated 5 out of 5 by tmeddleo from Limited-time experience for a high price after owning this device for 15 months, the track-pad frequently does not function. this is a well documented problem you can find on reddit and the samsung forums. unfortunately, the device only comes with a year-long warranty so this common hardware issue is up to you to pay for. on-top of an initially poor battery life that has worsened, i suggest you do not go through the trouble of owning this. especially for the same price you can get a higher quality apple device that has gone through better quality assurance testing

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lincoln from Trackpad issues constantly i would wholeheartedly steer you away from this laptop. for the price, i shouldn't have to constantly reset my laptop for issues with the trackpad not responding. after researching this on forums, it is a constant issue pervasive throughout this product and has been for a prolonged period of time. the fact that this happened at least once every hour of using my laptop the past 2 days literally 2 days after the return window ended seems to be a ...very poor coincidence. i'd rather have a less capable, off brand chromebook than this thing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bowler from Good Chromebook this device is good for many tasks. however the trackpad is not good and will not work on first click. it take multiple pushes and becomes very frustrating. the touch works good on the trackpad but sometimes you need to click in certain apps. alternatively you can use a external mouse but this is not ideal for travel. this chromebook was very expensive. i will look else where when i upgrade. lastly if you have note phone..samsung notes does not work on galaxy chromebook.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bladeduffer from The Porsche of laptops. Best I have ever used incredible machine. it's superb build quality is unlike anything i've ever used. everything on this feels absollutey premium and the screen is a marvel to behold. performance-wise this thing is a beast and never slows down. i have never had any overheating issues i've seen mentioned and have only felt it get warm. i do wish the battery life were slightly better but if i'm just browsing i'll get 6 hours easy. to be honest i'm never on it for more than 3-4 hours at a time anyway. again, like a porsche, this is a premium quality high performance machine that never ceases to amaze. bravo, samsung!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mark from About 2.5 to 3 stars screen is great and then everything is just ok. i read a lot of reviews and they are pretty much right. a lot of crashing, every time you open it you have to restore from your last session. i was willing to live with that if the screen was that nice, and it is. but just less then a year later the pointer/cursor disappears but touch screen will still work fine like a tablet. after 3 to 5 restarts is works fine again. i did sthe powerwash also to try and fix. when this works idt does work very nice. so if you want to take a chance on just ok this is it. glad i had bought on sale. this would be a good $200 chromebook maybe.

The mouse pad randomly stops working here and there and the only way you can fix it is by signing out your account and powering it off completely . at first i thought that i ruined the Chromebook my self. but then i found out that my sister was having the same problem with her Chromebook. other then that the Chromebook is a really good product i honestly have mixed feeling about it. so buy it at your own risk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Disappointed from Disappointed i was quite excited to get this upgraded chromebook. on the good side it is lightweight, fast, very solid and has a crisp display. but there are a few big issues. as others have mentioned it runs very hot. i mean to the point you have to lift it off your lap after a bit because it is hot! the other most annoying thing is the ambient light sensor, in that there is no way to turn it off. it constantly does these wild swings in dim to bright, back to dim, etc. it will drive a person crazy. overall this chromebook is just ok. i wanted it to blow me away but it has fallen well short of that. i own over a dozen samsung products and have always been a big fan. but this has been a real disappointment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChromeOS Tech from First Samsung Laptop I've Owned everything about this chromebook is amazing except the battery life which is around 4 hours making it non-portable laptop to date and intermittent trackpad freezing (seems to appear when using file manager, not sure). it does get very warm very quickly but it is a good processor and that only happens when i play intensive android games. each year i purchase a new chromebook for review and personal use, then donate my current one to someone who needs a computer. i feel bad donating this version because of the issues. now that it’s out of warranty i won’t be sending it anywhere for repairs or parts to be replaced. this is the first time i’ve invested in a laptop from samsung.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Srikanth from Recurring trackpad issues mouse pointer moves on its own and clicks on its own. it stops working after 15 to 20 minutes of use. happens more when it is used on a lap, when your palms are rested for typing on the side of the trackpad. the problem started within 2 months of purchase. it was repaired under warranty only to resurface again in two months. it's super annoying especially when it clicks submit button when we don't intend to. this system also overheats a lot. looks great but extremely delicate

Rated 5 out of 5 by StarfishLove from Awful touchpad I have had this chromebook for almost 2 years. The first year was great. I took notes with the stylus and it was fast and did what I needed it to do for school. However, the second year after some updates I have had so much trouble with the touchpad bugging out. It works for a few minutes then stops. Not to mention I have lost all my files because it reset itself multiple times and i have to powerwash it. Some apps like Word are not supported anymore which is frustrating too. Overall I used to love this chromebook but I'm switching back to windows.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dan8288 from My first Chromebook and more than pleased! This is my first Chromebook and I think it's awesome. The super AMOLED screen is beautiful and a big selling feature for me. The size, weight, and features are right in the "Goldilocks Zone", just right for my needs. The one negative is its poor battery life. It's not much of an issue for me since I use it and home and plugged in the vast majority of the time. It can run hot if processor-intensive activities are used for a while (20+ minutes).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Raumulin from The track pad is awful! yes, a known problem with "fixes" all over the internet but they are only temporary. i fight every single time i use this chromebook with the track pad freezing/locking up or just not responding. i paid $1,000 for a book three years ago. i planned for the purchase to last me 5 years, and two years in, i've been dealing with a worthless track pad. to fix it, i purchased a $20 usb-c wireless mouse, rather than ship it back to samsung. i have been a loyal samsung user (phones (7), tv, fridge, washer and dryer) for over a decade. this is the most disappointing purchase i have made. i would have rated the chromebook five (5) stars, except you can't get past the weak link of a track pad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Huckabloon from Truly exceptional device after a few days of using the galaxy chomebook i am really impressed. the machine is incredibly fast, the screen is unbelievable, and it's an incredibly versatile device. the only downside is battery life (4 - 5 hours in real-world usage) but that isn't a big problem for me personally. it has a premium feel and build quality that is a small, but significant, step above apple's macbook pros. overall, an excellent chromebook!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CosmicCuriosity from Beautifully Flawed samsung did an amazing job building this chromebook. it might be the most premium laptop i have ever held. the svelte design with the chamfered stainless steel border contrasted against the gorgeous red color is a sight to appreciate. but there are some serious flaws. the battery life is only 4-6 hours, the laptop constantly crashes in sleep mode, and trackpad issues seem to be very common on this model. these issues were present on the first day i received the machine and i should have returned the device instead of trying to research, powerwash, and reinstall the os. as the machine stands, it's hard to recommend. samsung was so close to building the perfect chromebook which makes the flaws in it that much more disappointing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Themaddbaker2 from Wasn't as impressed 1st thing right off the bat, when i took it out of the box, the battery was completely dead. typically any product including cell phones that i've purchased have a partial charge. it was also heavier than i expected or really liked. i wasn't completely a huge fan of all the features and would've liked an option to have it added to an individual phone line so it didn't have to be directly linked to my phone. also for the price it should have an option not to add data or internet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Professor AdMan from After a rough start, I remain a fan it was originally out of my price range until i was able to catch a sale and get it for $300 less. the galaxy chromebook looks amazing and feels solid. i enjoy movies or music while working. i edit small video files (i read you can’t on chromebooks). i didn’t buy it for gaming, but my games play fine. so far, no serious heat issues. i only get 5-6 hours of battery, but i work from home, so it’s mostly plugged in. speaking of battery, after two weeks, i returned it due to a battery issue, and samsung repair got it back to me quickly. i just liked my galaxy chromebook enough to deal with it and keep it. overall, it does what i need it to do. let your needs (& price) help you pick your best laptop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NatB from I still cannot understand how the screen is broken my husband gave me this sleek chromebook as a christmas present and i loved it. i even put my old windows laptop on the side. this chromebook has been well taken care of that i was so shocked when i noticed dome fine broken lines on the screen; at first, i thought it was maybe done dust and i tried to clean it up; the lines will not go away. then, i lowered my head to look at the screen like sideways and that's when i noticed the screen being broken. that is such a shame; it's been only 2 months; that is so revolting and a pure waste of money.i guess i am going back to my old windows laptop, even though it us a little but it still standing after 6 years!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Airick from Great Chromebook - Poor Battery Life samsung has outdone themselves with this high end chromebook. the display is fantastic, the keyboard is great and the design is sleek. not to mention the fact it has ample memory and is lightning quick. the issue is the battery. no matter how i adjust the settings (reduce the screen brightness, turn off bluetooth, etc.) the battery does not last all day. i would at least expect the chromebook to last a solid 8-10 hours but the best i can get out of it is about 6.5-7 hours. not good for a high end system. i hope samsung will work with google to come up with a true fix because this is a great chromebook but the battery life does not meet expectations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nick from Worst Chromebook ever This is by far the worst piece of electronic equipment I have bought from samsung. The mouse pad doesnt work even after troubleshooting. The battery lasts 2 hours at the most when unplugged. The mouse tracker ghosts on me when I surf the web and will exit all my screens and then re open, close and again its ridiculous. They wont even honor the warranty or give me any type of support. 900 dollars down the drain

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kososs from Don't buy this crap! Chrome os absolutely worthless don't even think you may like it. It's even doesn't have spell check in Gmail app. Absolutely inconvenient to use. You will find more useful any tablet but not this laptop. After few times trying just laing on shell as garbage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sti_xx1226 from Major Touchpad Problems I purchased this beautifully designed Chromebook in June 2023, so just a few week's ago from the time I'm writing this review. After about 3 days of receiving the device in the mail, I needed to start working on a research paper for an online class. I was about 15 minutes into my research when I needed to click and drag a file to a new folder I created for my research articles. My touchpad became unresponsive and my onscreen cursor began acting very erratic. I ended up restarting the device and this did not resolve the concern. I followed all of the troubleshooting steps found on Samsung's website as well as Google's and this did not resolve my concern. About a week ago I "powerwashed" (factory reset) the device and this did seem to temporarily fix the touchpad concern, and when it did malfunction, the trouleshooting steps founds online did resolve the problem, but for only about 10-15 minutes. For this to be my everyday laptop, I am HIGHLY annoyed that I cannot double click, or click and drag using the touchpad without causing it to wig out. I attend an online university and 100% of my course load is done at home and supposed to be on this laptop. I am thankful that the screen is touch enabled, or I would be so far behind. I have contacted Samsung support and will be sending the device in for repairs, but after researching this problem online, it seems that others have also tried these steps to no avail. I hope Samsung is able to figure out what the cause of this issue is. It seems to have affected a great percentage of customers who purchased this same device.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WendyAnn from Purchased in Dec. of 2020 & still going strong. I got this model in December of 2020, just before the 'stripped down' Chromebook 2 came out & after getting used to this one, I feel, for what I was looking for, that I made the correct choice. It'll be 3 years in December & there are still features I have yet to try out & possibly use on a regular basis. We went on a cruise in April & because this laptop is so light, this is the one we took with us & both used. We already have an HP lap & desktop so this was basically something for surfing the web, watching videos & the occasional face-time video chats/meetings & so far so good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jackson from Awful. Avoid! like everyone else... the track pad went out after about a year of light use. only the top part works. it's a well-known issue samsung does nothing about. the device gets hot very fast. the battery life is pretty dismal. for some reason when i type the space bar inputs two spaces randomly. i've tried every adjustment known to man to get it to work. the only great thing about this product is the screen. now i have a "premium" chromebook that's ready for the garbage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Raw Bear Toe from Good, but. Worked great for the first couple of years. Then the trackpad went wonky. Nothing would fix it, updates, factory resets. It would work for a little while after a reset, then it stopped working. I bought it when it was $1000. I have cheaper way older laptops and have no problems. If it wasn't for the touch screen and stylus still working I would have given it 1 star. Other than that the performance is still great and everything else works.
