The Samsung Galaxy Book4 Pro 16-inch tries to be more than just a nice face when it comes to high-end laptops. Powerful performance, an amazing display, and a plethora of features intended to please both creative pros and casual users are all promised by this sleek, elegant device. Whether it lives up to the hype will be seen.


Design and Display: Fashion and Utility Collide

Because of its sleek metal chassis and understated style, the Galaxy Book4 Pro 16-inch could be mistaken for a MacBook at first look. Thinner than 0.49 inches, this laptop is all about style and mobility. Though modest, the grey coloring provides refinement without being overly noticeable. A sensible option, the matte coating prevents fingerprints and keeps the laptop looking brand new.


The Book4 Pro's frame seems a touch flimsy despite its elegant look. Its upscale impression is diminished by a discernible creak when you lift it up from the corners. It is a little underbuilt in comparison to rivals like the HP Spectre x360. It is a delight to tote about, though, given that it weighs just 1.56 kg.

The Galaxy Book4 Pro excels mostly on display. Everything from intensive creative work to binge-watching TV is ideal for the 16-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X screen's brilliant colors and fine details. A visual feast, this 2,880 x 1,800 pixel display has a 120Hz refresh rate and 100% DCI-P3 color gamut coverage. 500 nits of peak brightness guarantee visibility even in bright surroundings.


But the shiny screen is easily fingerprinted, and tapping on the touchscreen can be annoying because of its wobbling. Notwithstanding these few disadvantages, the laptop's display continues to be one of its best characteristics.

I/O, Trackpad, and Keyboard: Practicality with a Touch of Comfort

The dedicated Numpad on the 16-inch device is one of its advantages over its smaller counterpart. For someone who puts in a lot of time calculating numbers, this is a blessing. There is enough of space on the roomy keyboard deck for comfortable typing, and the keys provide pleasing tactile response. Working late at night is made ideal by the three levels of backlighting.


The large trackpad allows a variety of multi-finger actions and is smooth and quick, albeit being a little off-center. There are enough of ports—two Thunderbolt 4 connectors, an HDMI 2.1 slot, a USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A port, a microSD card reader, and a 3.5mm combination socket. While having another Type-A port would have been nice, most demands are met by the current selection.


Though useful, the 1080p webcam has many shortcomings. Because of the laptop's specialized NPU, it can support Windows Studio effects like background blur and auto-framing; yet, the image quality isn't as good as that of certain rivals. Though the embedded fingerprint sensor in the power button provides a fast and safe method to unlock the smartphone, the lack of an IR camera for facial recognition is a lost opportunity.

Performance and Battery Life: Power Packed with Some Heat

The 16-inch Samsung Book4 Pro is a beast under the hood. Its six performance cores, eight efficiency cores, and two LPE cores, together with a powerful Arc integrated GPU, are all part of the Intel Core Ultra 7 155H processor. With 32GB of LPDDR5X RAM and a 1TB NVMe SSD, my review machine easily handled everything from project management tools to web surfing.

The specialized NPU kicks in for more taxing chores, improving performance in AI-driven programs like Audacity and Adobe's Creative Cloud suite. Extending battery life is one benefit of this job offloading from the CPU and GPU.

The 76Whr battery has a respectable six hours of operation on a single charge. Due mostly to the bigger, more power-hungry display, this is marginally less than the smaller 14-inch variant. That is still commendable for a laptop in this class, though.


For a system lacking a dedicated GPU, gaming performance is outstanding. While more demanding games like GTA 5 necessitate some graphical settings compromise, titles like Hades and Valorant function well at high settings. Under heavy use, the laptop can become somewhat warm; during demanding activities, core temperatures frequently rise above ninety degrees.

Comparos Says: A Chic Rival with a Few Drawbacks

Striking and combining performance, design, and utility is the Samsung Galaxy Book4 Pro 16-inch laptop. At Rs 1,89,990, it takes on titans like the HP Spectre x360. Though the Spectre has marginally better thermals and performance, individuals who value design and mobility will find the Galaxy Book4 Pro to be an attractive option because of its lighter design, dedicated Numpad, and gorgeous display.


The Samsung Galaxy Book4 Pro 16-inch is ultimately worth thinking about if you appreciate a stylish, sophisticated design and don't mind the somewhat flimsy construction. With enough power for most jobs, it's a chic partner for work and play.
