Team Samsung Galaxy Book or Team Microsoft Surface Pro?

Galaxy Book
Alastair Archibald (3 months ago)
Team Surface Book. I have had iPads with KBs, a Surface Pro 4 and a Galaxy Tab Pro S and have come to the conclusion that I prefer "mostly a laptop / sometimes a tablet" to vice versa.
hasher22 (3 months ago)
For me, I only need it for light work. But the samsung no USB3 port kills me BUT it comes with the pen and keyboard, whereas I love the surface but no pen and keyboard....

Matthew Moniz Can we use Adobe premiere for video editing on the surface pro i7?
Justin (5 days ago)
You want to bring a desktop quality using a tablet believe me there is no way. I think both are almost same speed, shouldn’t mention which one is super fast therefore fit on business that’s so funny.. but consider design and or the price. Thanks!

The surface pro is not good for artists, that pen jitter is a big no no
jerin ram (10 days ago)
does any of this support revit architecture software?
David Wild (10 days ago)
I had a Surface Pro 3 i5 but it died before I'd even had it for two years..... Now I own a Galaxy Book. I am a professional teacher and I use the pen for writing notes for my students (live) using both devices. I find the Galaxy Book FAR better to write with than the SP3.... and it works 100% of the time, every time whereas the SP3 I kept having to unscrew the pen and then re-screw it up to get re-connected. In front of a class, this is BAD. ... so for me the Galaxy book is better. The screen is also far better. Same configuration of memory/HD and processor for both, by the way.
Katherine Binamira (22 days ago)
Love this video. Im deciding on which of these 2 I'll get. Can Galaxy Book support Adobe Photoshop/Illustrator?
Dana M (1 month ago)
After testing both of these devices extensively, this reviewer is incorrect about the surface being better for artists. Unless you are doing 3D rendering or video work, the difference in processing power is not an issue. The Galaxy book's EMR pen blows any AES pen out of the water in terms of precision for artists. I honestly cannot recommend the surface for any illustrators, but I would put the book nearly on par with any wacom cintiq product. I've tried tons of NTrig/AES pens, all of them have jitter issues and are dreadful in many common illustration programs like Clip Studio. If you want mobile sketching, the Galaxy book is on par or better than any AES pen device and I would say it is also better than the Ipad pro/pencil.
Dana M (1 month ago)
As a sketchbook, I found I was getting very good battery life out of the book I tested. I never tried drawing until the battery ran out, but I also drew for at least a few hours on end and still had a lot of battery left over. Samsung claims 101-11 hours of video playback but I don't know how true that is. I'd bet you can realistically get 6-8 hours of drawing on a full charge. I also didn't really do much video watching, but I did do a lot of reading on it, and never really had to charge it before I was done with whatever I was reading. I only had one for a few days to test out, but I plan on saving and buying one for myself.
astro ganger (1 month ago)
thank you for this info, but what about the battery life on the book ?if for watching the movies for how long it can stands? thanks
Alheli Espinosa (1 month ago)
I have the surface pro 4 and the battery only lasts 4 hours on power saving mode so I'm not sure if I would recommend this laptop tbh
Sereno Pittman (1 month ago)
Compare the tab s3 against the surface pro to see witch one show the best
Akikaze (1 month ago)
A bit late to the game but although you are putting lot of work in making your videos really professional looking and that's a good thing, owning a galaxy book I always cringe when ppl say that it's hard to use the cover : Samsung added a little drawing on the cover to explain how to fold it and yet seems like none of the youtube testers did see it. I know the kickstand in the surface pro line is better but please before making a video please look at the product more carefully. Also, the surface pen and the S pen use two different technologies that makes them completly different. Surface pen got a battery and it's the pen handling all of the work while with the s pen it's the screen that handle recognition. Mean that the S pen is generally better while the surface pen got more function (more buttons and an eraser on the back)
adrian noble (1 month ago)
I found the S-Pen a little more accurate than the surface pen. They both do have the same level of pressure sensitivity.
Guy Beaulieu (1 month ago)

thatOne (2 months ago)
There is no way the Surface pen is more accurate than the S-pen, and most artists etc would choose Wacom & the S-pen over the Microsoft pen. I can't believe you could do a whole comparison on these devices and the pen tech basically gets a cursory mention...

Matthew Moniz (5 months ago)
Yup!
ah man im so lost on which to buy still, I want a tablet thats best for my digital art... The samsung galaxy book comes with that nice wacom pen... It's hard to find reviews that focuses on just this aspect... But after hearing you say about the surface pro having i7 ahhhh what does one doo.
Brian Watson (4 months ago)
Laurence Page Illustration check out Mobile Tech Review, she goes more in depth with the s-pen and digitizer sensitivity. Either way you have to choose between i7+ kickstand+ more ports+ N-trig =Surface OR OLED+ highly accurate color gamut+ Wacom pen and digitizer+ USB-C= G BOOK. It's a tough decision, good luck!

Stefano Azzalin (5 months ago)
Good comparison video. Only one thing that's totally wrong: the s-pen with its accuracy is so much better for artists than the new surface pen, they're just in two different leagues. ;)

Stefano Azzalin thanks,I will check it out.I lean towards the galaxy book as well.I don't know why,I don't trust the Microsoft surface pro as much...
Stefano Azzalin (5 months ago)
just a stranger if you take a look at my videos I just published one regarding the s-pen. I also have one with the new surface pro but that is in Italian. You can still see the problems I had with the new surface pen though. Which is the reason I asked a refund and got the Galaxy Book. ;)
just a stranger (5 months ago)
Stefano Azzalin in what sense?can you elaborate?I'm on the hunt of one of these convertible devices,and I am more inclined to buy the galaxy book.I am really interested in the drawing aspect as well as note taking -I assume it must be good for making notes of maths, equations etc?Does it turn your handwritten notes into typed ones?

Saito C (5 months ago)
UnitedWeStand4EVR you should get the laptop because I think the new pro is slower. But the laptop is more expensive I think. Look at chrome books their much cheaper. MUCH cheaper. Look at the new chrome books. But if you want Microsoft specifically look at the laptop because it was MADE from and for students.

Jin yoon (5 months ago)
I just got the galaxy book 12 to replace my surface pro 3. I've also tested the recent pro in the microsoft store. My general thoughts. Things they share in common: 1. Both are very light and amazing for travel and daily carry. Battery life may not be amazing, but you should be able to get through the day. A true pleasure coming from a traditional thinkpad user. I think generally, anyone would be happy to have either one for regular use. 2. For lap use, neither is that good, but galaxy book is pretty bad. Galaxy book feels better to hold as a tablet for extended periods though imo. 3. Don't really like the keyboards for each and prefer to use the logitech bt keyboard (k810) and bt mx anywhere mouse. I'm admittedly a bit particular in regards to input devices though. Differences: 1. The pen on the galaxy book is far superior, particularly when trying to carefully and slowly draw straight lines. The surface with ntrig has a known jitter issue that I find very annoying. That being said, their is noticeable offset at the corners of the galaxy book, which has always been an issue with wacom based boards, this doesn't really bother me. Galaxy does have more parallax. Surface does have access to the surface dial which I have not used. Pros and cons, but as a digital art enthusiast who also owns an ipad pro and android galaxy tablet, I find myself drawing more with the galaxy book whereas I grew frustrated with the surface. If you do draw, highly recommend clip studio paint, which has a nice tablet mode and palm rejection. 2. I'm currently pretty surprised by the lack of accessories for the galaxy book in regards to cases and other things. Surface definitely wins here in the amount of options. This is a bit annoying for galaxy book as I like using a separate keyboard mouse, so cases that fit this need are limited for galaxy book. 3. I've had annoying issues with wifi/bt connection on the surface pro 3, dunno if this has been resolved (I assume so) but def worth checking out the forums prior to purchase. No such issues thus far with galaxy book.

Jin yoon hi, i was looking to buy a 2 in 1 for the first time in my life and since you had the surface pro 3, can you please help me? I was looking to buy at first a surface pro 3 because i only counted with 750$ but i just saw the galaxy book 128 gb/4gb ram 12" in 947$ in amazon so i don't know if i buy the surface pro 3 or put the extra cash for the samsung book, i'm a medicine student and my use will be only with office and media consumption, maybe some gaming too, well hope u can help me, thank you in advance :)
David Smith (5 months ago)
Great video - you should have mentioned you were comparing the Galaxy Book 12 - not 10 - you didn't mention the slower CPU and less RAM was only available on the 10". http://mobilesyrup.com/2017/06/07/samsung-galaxy-book-2-in-1-now-available-in-canada/
PHeMoX (5 months ago)
Uhm no, Microsoft most definitely absolutely did not 'invent' the 2-in-1 category at all. That's as uniformed as stating Apple 'invented the tablet or touch screen phone'. There were netbooks, EEE books and ultrabooks with touch screens way way way before. Even the detachable (or flippable / "rotatable") screen wasn't a world's first. Think about the HP TouchSmart series or the older tablet-PCs. We actually had very expensive early iterations of laptops-with-a-touchscreen many years ago. Even some in very small form factors like HP Mini 5102. You can't really say Microsoft invented 'the hybrid'. I would however argue that the operating system was perfected to support a device of this category. Windows Mobile was crap for early touch screen smart phones like HTC 9100 or whatever. Comparing that to say Samsung Galaxy with Android or the later iPhones with iOS is of course a world of difference.

Galaxy Book Pen should be just as accurate as the new Surface Pro, it was the same amount of pressure levels and tilt support. That being said I havent used the 2017 Surface, but I do know from experience the S Pen is better than the Surface 3 and 4 pens.

Microsoft made a stupid mistake thinking people want to replace the Surface Connector with type-c. We want the display port to be replaced with type-c! Keep the god damn charger, it's good!

But then again why are you buying a 2 n 1 that's like 2 grand if you can make a productivity desktop for less or at the same price? So idk why they are marketing for high productivity...it obviously is a daily commute 2 n 1. That I really I'm thinking of buying...it's beautiful. 🤣

Awesome video Mathew. I was actually looking forward to getting a 2 in 1 and really did my research to get either of them, but ended up getting the iPad Pro 10.5. They are all great devices though.
Changiz K Baluch (6 months ago)
Matthew Moniz I already have a 15 inch MacBook Pro, but it is too heavy to carry everywhere I go. Initially, I was in dilemma to get rid of the MacBook Pro and get a surface pro which is more convenient to carry around. However, the surface pro model that I was interested in was too expensive, and anything less than that model wouldn't be worth it especially if it was to replace my MacBook Pro. So, I finally decided to keep the MacBook Pro and get the iPad Pro 10.5, which is even more convenient than the surface pro to carry around when I travel, and in my opinion it has a better battery life too.

Thank you for the video it was fantastic and what I was waiting for. I am a college student and I want to take notes for my classes and read books from the device I want to buy. So, I wish you have talked about Core M version of Samsung Galaxy Book 10.6 inch version, is it still enough for watching movies or mark up note? Is Surface Pro Core M version significantly better in performance than Samsung Galaxy Book? Samsung still includes pen and keyboard even in the cheapest modification whereas Surface Pro does not.
Çınar (6 months ago)

Matthew Moniz (6 months ago)
I don't recommend the 10" version. It only comes with 4GB of ram and the display is only FHD / TFT. I'd stick to the 12" version. As for the surface pro it's the same thing. the Core M3 only comes with 4GB of ram which i feel is not enough these days. 8 should be minimum.

Good review. I tried them both and think Your review is fair and true. But one thing You said needs to be corrected in my opinion: The S-pen on the SGB is much more precise, accurate and fast than the Microsoft pen on the SP - especially when You take notes very quick and do not want to handwrite huge letters.
