The GD's Fit and Form are excellent, this thing is thinner than the Note Pro 12.2 that it has replaced. It really looks like an Android tablet until you turn it on.
Backlit keyboard works well and is comfortable. I like the fact that unlike the Surface Pro 4, when I remove the keyboard all I have in my hands to hold is this sleek tablet.
As one would expect, out of the box it is a very fast windows environment. I have installed Lightroom and Photoshop and performed some minimal testing with those programs. All I've done in Photoshop is adjust the raw photo's settings in Camera Raw and that works just as fast as my 12 gig i7 desktop. I haven't done any layering yet. Lightroom seems to be a bit slower when going from the Library mode to Develop mode, like maybe a second or two, just enough time to see some pixelation but that's it, everything else seems to work the same.
I've already updated Win 10 to the Creators update and all seems fine.
It charges pretty fast, going from an out of the box 53% to 100% in an hour. Battery duration has been all day when I use it as a tablet, I have noi as yet, and really don't plan to use it as a portable desktop except when I travel with it.
HDR movies look amazing on it and the sound is good enough to forego headphones unless you need privacy.
I picked up some under $10 USB micro to USB-C and USB-USB-C adapters from Amazon and they work fine as well as a perfectly fitting case. Amazon also sells a 90+mbs 128g Samsung EVO Select MicroSD card for 44 bucks that perform slightly below it's rated speed when used in the microsd slot and at gull speed when used in a USB 3 card reader plugged, with adapter, into the tablet.
Hi Folks, I've had my Verizon version of the Galaxy Book 12 LTE for about 2 weeks but can't find another owner online in any of the forums. Am I the only one?
