How is Samsung Galaxy Book S battery life?

The lowdown on Samsung Galaxy Book S battery life

While a lot of laptops get around 8-10 hours of battery life these days, the Galaxy Book S purports to get an impressive 23 hours on a charge. The stellar battery longevity can be attributed to the device's ARM Snapdragon 8cx processor. It offers power equivalent to a mid-range Intel i5 CPU while significantly cutting down on battery drain and allowing devices to last much longer than they normally would with other types of processors.

Aside from the competent and battery-saving CPU, there are lots of reasons to get yourself a Samsung Galaxy Book S. Coming in at 0.96kg and at only 11.8mm thick, it's absurdly easy to carry around with you. Without a doubt, it's one of the least cumbersome laptops in existence.

In addition to that, it also has a nice 13-inch HD touch screen with awesome color accuracy, premium AKG speakers equipped with Dolby Atmos, and dual USB-C ports (not Thunderbolt 3) that can be used to transfer data and charge the device simultaneously. Pair all of this with the Samsung Galaxy Book S' pleasant low-profile keyboard, and you have yourself a great little laptop.

If you're a fan of Windows Hello, Windows 10's biometric security system, the Samsung Galaxy Book S is partially compatible with that, too. While it does not work with facial recognition, the device does come with a fingerprint reader that you can use with Windows Hello. This will allow you to keep the device safe from people who would otherwise be able to spy on your computing activities while you were away or not looking.
