Samsung's Galaxy Book S took a while to hit store shelves, but as one of the first Snapdragon 8cx laptops on the market, it was arguably worth the wait. In his review of the thin-and-light always-connected PC, MrMobile calls it the "best combination of battery life, performance, and portability" that he's seen. Check out the review above for more.
MrMobile's thoughts largely reflect those of our own review, penned by Windows Central executive editor Daniel Rubino. The Samsung Galaxy Book S manages to pack solid battery life, great audio, a bright display, and LTE connectivity into a chassis that is impressively slim. The only downsides are the keyboard, which can feel mushy, and the potential for app compatibility issues on the ARM processor.
For anyone who works with graphics or wants to game, you'll want to look elsewhere. However, if you're looking for a PC designed to be tossed in a bag to get work done on the go, then the Samsung Galaxy Book S is worth a look.

Interesting review they should have made the keyboard light brighter.
This device is a great alternative to a Surface Pro X. Maybe it will drop in price some and I could snag it then.
