Reviewers from gizmodo have found the following***:
The Galaxy Book Flex has a great, but simple design, a brilliant screen, and a handful of useful extras. Its Core i7 CPU, 8GB of RAM (or 12GB on the 15-inch model), and 512GB compares favorable against a similarly specced XPS 13. But you don't have the ability to upgrade to a 4K display, a larger SSD, or more RAM, or even downgrade to a Core i5 chip.

Pros
  • Slim, stylish design
  • S Pen stylus is a nice addition
  • Good battery life
Cons
  • No 4K display

The Galaxy Book Flex is everything you could want in a modern laptop. It's sleek, portable, and powerful — and beats some of the best laptops in key areas like display and battery life. The addition of the S Pen housed within the chassis is only the icing on the cake. Samsung offers a limited one-year warranty at the time of purchase.

Pros
  • Gorgeous 4K display

The Samsung Galaxy Book Flex 15 is my favorite 2-in-1 laptop so far. The dark blue hue of this stunning $1,399 convertible will turn heads. Samsung's decision to implement a half-sized Shift key to squeeze in an adjacent fingerprint scanner is beuddling. The top bezel of the Flex 15 features a tiny 720p webcam.

Pros
  • Super-bright QLED display

Samsung uses the Intel Core i5-1035G4 quad-core processor in the Galaxy Book Flex 13.3. It can process up to eight tasks simultaneously and offers clock rates between 1.1 and 3.7 GHz. The Galaxy Book's IPS panel has very stable viewing angles. Image content can be viewed from almost any angle without becoming distorted.

Reviewers from notebookcheck have found the following***:
The Galaxy Book Flex offers enough performance for office and internet applications. The Core i7-1065G7 (Ice Lake) quad-core CPU runs at a base clock speed of 1.3 GHz and can turbo boost up to 3.4 GHz on all four cores. The preloaded Samsung Settings applications supports a so-called “Silent Mode” which can lower noise emissions significantly at the expense of performance.

Pros
  • Matte IPS display

Cons

The Samsung Galaxy Book Flex is an excellent 2-in-1 convertible laptop. The stylus and wireless charging are unobtrusive enough that you can ignore them if you don't need them. Audio quality is remarkably good for such a small laptop. Samsung supports the Book Flex with a one-year warranty.

Pros
  • Attractive, lightweight design

Reviewers from techadvisor have found the following***:
The Galaxy Book Flex is an ambitious step into the world of convertibles for Samsung, but it's done an excellent job. The 1080p OLED screen is just as excellent as you'd expect from a Samsung device, while the tiny bezels make it much more than most 13in laptops. There's even a decent webcam for working from home, although it doesn't support Windows Hello for face unlock. The Flex can't rival high-end laptops on internals, but for most people, this can be a great everyday laptop.

Pros

The 15.6-inch display is one of the most colorful and bright we've ever used. Sound quality still isn't quite on the level of a MacBook Pro, but it's good enough to watch some Netflix on your lunch break. Performance is top-notch, though the Nvidia GeForce MX250 found in the unit we reviewed here isn't available in the US.

Pros
  • Beautiful display

The Samsung Galaxy Book Flex is one of the best 2-in-1 laptops I’ve tested. It has a lovely blue design, a stunning QLED screen, a fantastic battery life and a bundled stylus for doodling and sketching. It is an expensive device though, costing as much as £1349 with the 13-inch model available in the UK.
