Reviewers from Gizmodo have found the following[***]:
The 15-inch Galaxy Book Pro 360 is significantly thinner and lighter than an XPS 15. For such a thin system, Samsung still provides a comfortable typing experience. There's no place to store a stylus in a system this thin, but Samsung does include an S-Pen in the box. Samsung has put a lot of work into a number of pre-installed apps.

Pros[**]
  • Beautiful OLED display
  • Long battery life
  • Stylus included
  • Solid performance
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

Reviewers from Digitaltrends have found the following[***]:
The Samsung Galaxy Book Pro 360 has an AMOLED screen and is as thin a laptop as you'll ever use. It's not the first laptop to include an OLED screen, but there are a couple of special things to notice about its implementation. The 15-inch laptop comes with just one processor option: the Intel Core i7-1165G7. It was one of the best-scoring devices in its class in PCMark 10.

Pros[**]
  • Beautiful AMOLED screen
  • Good battery life
  • Good keyboard and touchpad
Cons[**]
  • Nothing in particular

Reviewers from Laptopmag have found the following[***]:
The Galaxy Book Pro 360 can convert into a tablet by rotating the screen back on its flexible dual hinges. At 14.2 x 8.9 x 0.8 inches, the Galaxy is considerably slimmer than the HP Spectre x360 15. The laptop's lid is a fingerprint magnet so keep a microfiber cloth on hand if that bothers you.

Pros[**]
  • Gorgeous 15-inch AMOLED display
  • Stylish design
  • S Pen included
Cons[**]
  • Hinges are unwieldy to use

Reviewers from Pcmag have found the following[***]:
The Samsung Galaxy Book Pro 360 is among the most “ultra” of the ultraportable laptop category. It has a roomy Super AMOLED touch screen, a 360-degree hinge, and an 11th Generation Intel Core i7 processor. The new S Pen is smaller than most digital styli, but it's easy to hold in one hand.

Samsung offers the Galaxy Book Pro 360 in either a 13.3-inch or a 15.6-inch configuration. All models ship with a Samsung S Pen in the box, which would normally cost about $32 on Amazon. Samsung's thin, light aesthetic extends to its port choices, including a pair of USB-C ports.

Reviewers from Theverge have found the following[***]:
The 15-inch Galaxy Book Pro 360 starts at $1,299 for an 8GB / 512GB model. All models ship with an S Pen, which is just like the S Pen on the Galaxy Book Flex. The Pro 360 was just fine for the large load of Chrome tabs and apps that I pushed it through.

Reviewers from Tomsguide have found the following[***]:
Samsung's Galaxy Book Pro 360 is a remarkably thin and light convertible laptop. It has a gorgeous AMOLED touchscreen and a speedy Intel 11th Gen CPU under the hood. While the webcam leaves something to be desired, the laptop's good performance makes it one of the best 2-in-1 laptops on the market.
