Samsung - Laptop reviews

Samsung is a strong brand in the world of technology, especially in the manufacturing of smartphone. But in the laptop field, Samsung is a relatively minor player in the laptop market.  Samsung is not much improvement in the design and configuration of the their products. In 2015, Samsung did nothing to raise their laptop brand.

Design (10/15)

There's no denying that the Ativ Book in its many sizes (Ativ Book 9 (2015), Ativ Book 9 Pro, Ativ Book 9 Plus) is a sexy, sleek laptop. The inky blue-black aluminum chassis is gorgeous, with a premium look and feel. The lines are clean and the curves are rounded. And it rarely weighs more than 4 pounds. The problem is that the design language hasn't changed in the past three years. However, for 2016, the company is introducing a new, even-lighter line of Book 9 laptops in 13.3- and 15-inch sizes.

HP - Laptops Reviews

Of the few Samsung laptops we reviewed in 2015, most were good but not great. Despite their attractive aluminum designs and rich displays, the ATIV Book 9 and 9 Pro failed to deliver the same level of battery life, performance and pricing we got with competing systems. The company's Ativ Book 9 Plus was easily the best system it produced, with a bright, high-res screen and an attractive design.

Tech Support (17/20)

We received excellent support from Samsung's phone agents and live-chat service during our tech support showdown, but it failed to deliver in every category. The company's customer- support reps on Facebook did a poor job of responding to our queries in a timely manner, and its online documentation database was out-of-date, focused almost entirely on Windows 8 and not Windows 10. We'd also like to see Samsung add laptop purchases to its Samsung Plus loyalty program.

Warranty (1/5)

Samsung backs its laptops with a modest one-year warranty where you're responsible for shipping costs if you need to send a product for service. The company also says it won't service "altered" products, which means that upgraded laptops won't be covered.

Generally speaking, Samsung machines are useful if you need high-end productivity software.

Software (3/5)

Samsung hasn't done much new with its apps this year, but it still provides a host of helpful utilities. SideSync, which lets you view your Galaxy smartphone or tablet's screen on your laptop, remains one of our favorite pre-loaded apps. Samsung also offers its own settings menu, software updater and recovery tools.  Unfortunately, a few of Samsung's ATIV books came with bloatware such as Candy Crush, iHeartRadio and Netflix.

Innovation (3/10)

Known for making a handful of extremely thin Ultrabooks, Samsung spent the past year refreshing its existing models, without adding any substantial new features or designs. However, in 2016, the company will be releasing its 13.3- and 15-inch Notebook 9 laptops, which weigh just 1.85 and 2.84 pounds, respectively.

Value and Selection (6/15)

With the exception of a few inexpensive Chromebooks, Samsung makes a very limited selection of lightweight laptops with hefty price tags. Windows laptops from Samsung range from $1,200 for the ATIV Book 9 (2015) to $1,600 for the ATIV Book 9 Pro, which makes for a narrow range of both machines and prices. Generally speaking, Samsung machines are useful if you need high-end productivity software, but they're not great for gaming, and they're too expensive for most everyday consumers.

There reviews above that was synthesized and shared to you. We hope that it will help you have more useful information about Samsung laptops. Wish you can choose a good laptop.
