What to know about the touch screen

The 13-inch HD display on the Samsung Galaxy Book S has full touch enabled, meaning that you can use your fingers to tap on things instead of clicking on them if you'd like. This is great to have when watching movies or videos as you can more easily pause or play them, and some people also prefer using touch when browsing the web, too.

Aside from the HD touch screen display, there are plenty of other reasons to get a Samsung Galaxy Book S. If you're after a portable device, this laptop is arguably one of the best ones in that department since it only weighs 0.96 kg and is 11.8 mm thick. The device also comes with amazing AKG speakers outfitted with Dolby Atmos technology for premium sound, as well as dual USB-C (not Thunderbolt 3) ports for both charging and data transfer. Together with the comfortable low-profile keyboard, these features make the Samsung Galaxy Book S an excellent choice.

Perhaps the best thing about the laptop, though, is the ARM Snapdragon 8cx processor. This CPU offers power comparable to a mid-range Intel i5, but the true value in it lies with the impact it has on battery. Most other laptops usually have a battery that dies out at around eight hours, but this one has a staggering 23-hour battery life. This flexibility is invaluable to people who want to take their device with them but don't want to worry about the hassle of charging.
