The best thing about this laptop is the screen then the weight. The Qled screen is absolutely the best LCD screen on the market with superior brightness, saturation and color accuracy. The 13.3" size screen in full HD is just beautiful and I believe they have applied an anti-reflective coating on the glass screen. So even though the screen is glossy there is very little refraction. The Ion is the only model with this AR coating. It is very similar to the 13" macbook pro screen but not as high resolution. In other words unless you have an OLED panel you will not find a better looking screen on any other laptop!!
The performance of this device is actually very good but I really think they could have used AMD Ryzen processors with much better results. The i7 this laptop uses is fast but it is not on the newer 10nm architecture which I would have preferred. I would have also preferred 12gb ram as a base for all models. All of that being said this thing is very fast for what it is. My complaints are more about future proofing. For what I use this laptop for it is very fast.
Now to the build quality and other features. The build and design of this laptop is one of my favorites of 2020. It has excellent industrial design and minimal bezels. Fit and finish are very good but not perfect. The silver finish is very good at resisting fingerprints. The keyboard is excellent. The glass trackpad is also excellent and can charge your phone!
Battery life is also very good. The claims by Samsung are inflated as are all battery life claims on a laptop but what I can say is for an ultra portable the 69 watt hour battery is very large and will get your through a solid day. That is with screen brightness on high, cpu performance set to high.
The speakers on this laptop are great and get very loud and have a good amount of bass. You have to get updates for the drivers in samsung update and then adjust the settings in realtek audio console but once you do the sound is amazing. I look at how small this thing is and the sound coming out of it and I am impressed.
To wrap it all up this is one of my favorite laptops to use. It is not a speed demon but it can handle it's own, it is super light and portable with great battery life. It does everything I need it to do and has a decent selection of ports including a thunderbolt 3 port. The fit and finish and design are all great. I really like the magnesium build. It does have some flex here and there because it is not using a thick piece of aluminum but a thinner stronger piece of Magnesium. I would just say that you should look for sales. The full retail price is too high IMO but the sale price is a good value considering the features you can only get in this laptop and the competition in the same price range.
Samsung has really done an excellent job with it's offerings this year. I am very excited to see what is to come. Just add more ram next time!!
The shell of the laptop flexes, especially the bottom where the vents are. I feel as if I need to be especially careful not to squeeze the laptop to avoid bending the casing. This hasn't happened so it may be me, but I don't want to tempt fate either.
The mouse pad is nice but sensitivity may be a tad high. I often engage the pad with my right palm when using the keyboard. I haven't found a way to throttle down the sensitivity.
For a laptop in this class, Samsung chose to include a traditional power plug instead of the newer magnetic type. Bad move by them there. A magnetic type of power cord would be perfectly fitting for this laptop and enhance it's respectability.
Ok now, aside from the above, there are so many things that I love about this laptop. The laptop is very light weight. It is beautiful to look at from the outside. The lit keyboard is nice. The screen is absolutely beautiful. The keyboard keys feel good. Aesthetically, this laptop is a winner - no doubt. For that reason, all the things that I don't like are overshadowed by how nice this laptop is. But at the price point, I feel that the quirks should not have been let go so it's only fair to take off one star for overall lack of value.
The laptop arrived with a faulty pixel. Amazon told me to contact Samsung support. I tried to do that but since I’m in Europe, the Samsung support site would not allow me to contact them through their web forms or chat function (there is no email). The site just kept complaining that I’m in the wrong region. So I contacted the local Samsung Service Centre but they refused to serve the product since it wasn’t bought in Europe. With Samsung you are always in the wrong region it seems.
Warranty wise, If you want to travel I would therefore not recommend Samsung products. This is too bad, really, because the laptop would be a pretty good travel companion. It’s very light for its size.
The battery is one of the best features. It is very good and you can limit charging to 85% in order to preserve battery health.
I’m quite baffled by the many glowing reviews of this screen. The only really good thing about this screen is the brightness which is quite amazing, but the screen is very reflective so even with that brightness, it can be hard to use it outdoors.
There is a lot of back bleeding, and the contrast is really not that good. I’ve used many lcd-screens that are better in that regard (and I’m not talking about oled screens). The lowest brightness setting is also still pretty bright so it’s not great for night use either.
The keyboard is ok, a bit cramped and off-center because of the numpad but ok. The keyboard backlight is very bad however. The automatic brightness detection frequently turns on the brightness even during bright conditions which makes the keys almost impossible to see since they are white. You can manually override the brightness in windows, so it’s only slightly annoying in that case. But in linux you have no control over keyboard backlight so then it becomes more of an issue.
In silent mode, the fan is almost never on and there is no coil whining so it’s dead silent most of the time should you want to use that mode.
The touchpad is downright bad. Two finger scrolls are terrible. It frequently fails to activate or it activates the drag function instead. Two finger clicks are also a hit-and-miss affair, with the cursor jumping wildly when you try to use it (also sometimes marking texts in the process). I'm not even that picky when it comes to touchpads, but compared to the last five touchpads I've used (chromebooks and regular Windows laptops) this one is the worst by far and the only one I feel the need to use a regular mouse with.
Linux works reasonably well, with the only real problem being the lack of control of keyboard backlight (the brightness still works, you just can’t control it). The sound will probably not work out of the gate, but can be fixed if you google the problem.
I could not get the fingerprint reader to work either, but that is a minor issue.
A very bright (but not very good) screen, excellent battery life, light and silent (if you are willing to sacrifice some performance by using silent mode), but otherwise a very mediocre product for a premium price. Samsung after sale support is not very supporting.
Update: The laptop got a BIOS (...or EUFI to be correct) update and now the touchpad is working much better. I no longer have any complaints about two finger scrolling and clicking. The touchpad is now perfectly fine, this also holds true for Linux use.
