Galaxy Book S (Intel Core i5) (Earthy Gold) | Unboxing & Comparison to Snapdragon Book S

by birtanpublished on November 20, 2020

Yo what's good y'all it's a trail and today i just got this galaxy book guest that just came in the mail from fedex with this multi-port adapter that came with it and yeah i already know that you're asking latrell i think you kind of already got a galaxy book that's unboxing done already yeah i did but this one is kind of special so this one actually has an intel processor instead of this snapdragon processor here so we'll talk about that more in a minute but let's get into it

Alright so we're here at the unboxing table as you can see and first up i just want to say something real quick okay so i hope this ain't the only unboxing experience we're about to get for 950 bucks because yeah that's how much i pretty much paid for this thing was 950 bucks and then i also applied my student discount to it so you can actually do that so when you're actually configuring your device on the order page you'll actually have this button here way at the bottom that says register now and you can choose whether you're a student

Or teacher or whatever so since i'm a student i went ahead and click on student and then instantly i got like 100 bucks off or 50 bucks off i don't really remember how much exactly so yeah that's really clutching here's one really weird thing about that so basically they don't ask for your student email or anything they just let you buy with the 50 or 100 off like you don't even have to be a student which is the crazy part but yeah for 950 bucks i'm really underwhelmed right now like look at the

Galaxy book that snapdragon version that's way better so i mean like we better have this box up inside this box right now so yeah like i was saying if you go on samsung.com right now you can go ahead and pick this thing up for 950 bucks and they'll actually throw in this free adapter right now so that's pretty cool so that's actually 50 cheaper than the snapdragon one so i'll go ahead and compare these two in the video and this is wi-fi only which really sucks so you can actually pick this thing up right now in the us in two

Colors and that's great here and finally earthy gold so thank you samsung i wanted earthy gold for so long now now it sucks because like i want the snapdragon one i don't really think i want the intel one because that's only wi-fi they don't have a lte one the only lte galaxy books that you can get right now in the us is actually the snapdragon one so you can't get this one in ote which really sucks and then like even in other countries it's the same exact thing with the colors

You can get the lte one in other countries with the intel one but you can with this so yeah that literally makes zero sense but this isn't your typical intel processor this is gonna be a little bit different this is going to be more resembling the snapdragon one but except this time we have a big benefit here of we can actually natively run x86 apps and x64 apps out here because this is still an intel processor we don't have to emulate any apps or anything

So yeah i mean besides that with our really boring unboxing experience i mean let's go check this thing out so i got all reliable on deck let's go and do this and i honestly don't think i'm gonna be keeping this thing because i really like my snapdragon oh yeah there we go i was just gonna say man that okay now i feel better now but i don't think i'm gonna keep this because well i like my snapdragon one and i like my ote so that's kind of a downside that i really don't like about this that it

Don't have lte now if this did have lte i might be reconsidering but right now i'm not but okay that made me feel way better so let's go and get this thing out the box and here we go so here's our earthy gold oh man i'm so excited for this this earthy gold already looks sick up in here so let's go and get out of our dryer sheet rapping right here and wow man i'm feeling that oh yeah this is boss right here so this is our earthy gold here and i'm loving this

So the thing about this is that this is gonna be the same exact body here as our galaxy book has here with the snapdragon processor everything inside the box is gonna be exactly the same including the charger the only thing that's really changing out here is the processor obviously but let's go ahead and open this thing up so my galaxy book guest with the snapdragon did not have this sheet here but yeah so that's our intel core i5 as you can see right there with that sticker right there

We got the energy star sticker and well yeah that's pretty much it so looking here at the bottom of the galaxy bookcase usually this is a semi-an sd card tray but now it's just going to be an sd card tray so yeah that sucks but i mean it is what it is i guess so let me go and show you my snapdragon galaxy book that's right here and then you will see that i have a verizon sim card over here so there we go there's our verizon sim card as you can see there and then you can just put an sd

Card up in there so let's go ahead and actually turn this thing on but i think we need to go ahead and plug it in first and yeah that's how it usually works with these galaxy bookcases now let's go ahead and get into the rest of the box here so we have our usual bucks and stuff so what we do with that we gonna take it out and then we throw it to the side and then we actually have an adapter in here so that's pretty nice we don't have an adapter with the galaxy book s with the snapdragon so that's really different so i guess we do

Have a little bit of a different unboxing experience but we do have the same fast charger here we have our usb8 usbc and then if we look up in here we got our long usbc the usbc charging cable so this isn't going to be your standard length this is going to be like appropriate charger length here for a laptop and yes so that was pretty much it for the unboxing experience so that was pretty interesting that came with this and like i said don't forget that we have this multi-port adapter so this

Isn't going to be a permanent bundle but right now if you get it you do get this for free so we have a usbc port usb 3.1 hdmi 4k and then we have a pd 3.0 so going ahead and cracking up to this box real quick and here we go so we have an aluminum adapter here as you can see so pretty nice build quality taking off the plastic and then you can see all of our ports so i mean it looks decent i wonder how much this cost out to look it up so just looking around this thing if you don't

Know what the snapdragon galaxy bookcase looks like i'll go ahead and show you around this real quick so we have our full keyboard here with the same exact keyboard layout as our galaxy book snapdragon as you can see these are what the two colors look like here side by side and if i go ahead and close these things you'll go ahead and see the lids so man i'm feeling this color so much y'all but this is what it looks like side by side so we got the gray and then we got the gold so let me know in the comments

Below which color are you feeling more now this kind of looks like blue and this lighting here but trust me in real life it don't look like that anyways on the left side we have a 3.5 millimeter headphone jack and a regular usb c port on the front we don't have anything on the right side we just have another usb c port and then we have our status light at the back we don't have anything and that the actual like bottom we don't have anything and update here my bad actually made a

Mistake so we actually do have some stuff at the bottom like some akg tuned speakers here and then we also got that sd card tray but all right let's go ahead and just get this thing plugged in so we can go and turn it on and there we go so just looking at the screen real quick i want to go and show you all that so we do have our samsung logo right here you can see that the bezels out here is pretty slim in there we got our webcam here alright turning this thing on and then you can see here that we have

Our samsung galaxy but guess logo so looks like pretty much the same exact boot up sequence except that this light doesn't blink when it turns on because i noticed that with the snapdragon galaxy because i know it's a little thing but when you turn this thing on or off this light will blink here so it won't actually just stay like a solid blue light it'll just blink so it looks like we're in the setup now i'm gonna just go ahead and skip through this and then i'll get back to y'all alright so i'm back here i got the thing

All set up and actually got a couple of important notes for y'all so i did forget to mention that this power button actually does double as a fingerprint scanner you actually do get a touchscreen display here and i'm also in the bios right now and this bios actually does look completely different from the samsung snapdragon one but you can see right there intel core i5 cpu 1.40 gigahertz and then 40 96 megabytes of ram so we have eight gigs of ram in here so yeah you can see right there pretty much confirms what we got up in here and

Now i'm gonna go and show you that in windows so i mean it is cool and all that this thing has an intel processor we have the earthy gold color here and it can support x86 apps on here but at the end of the day i still think that i'm gonna prefer my snapdragon galaxy book siri even if it is in the color that i don't really want but i think the lte and everything else is just really worth it for me now i will go ahead and do a speed test to see which one is actually faster in

Another video so stay tuned for that go ahead and subscribe and turn on the notification bell so you don't go ahead and miss that and as you can see there it did just log me in with my fingerprint but the last important note that i want to go and show you all that is when i go over here to my samsung apps and i scroll down we actually do have more samsung apps here than we have on the galaxy book snapdragon version so you can see here that these are some of the apps that we got on here pre-installed like samsung

Pc cleaner samsung recovery samsung update samsung settings all that type of stuff but do you notice one app that is missing out here smart things so since this isn't an arm processor basically this doesn't have smart things out here which kind of sucks but just going here in my system information you can see here that this is a x64 based pc as you can see right there but like i said y'all stay tuned for my speed test between this and that dragon galaxy books and then the intel one over

Here but i'm going to get out of here and as you can see here i do have the smart things apple been here but thanks for watching y'all if you like this video go and give this video a like and if you really liked it go and subscribe but go on follow me on my social media edison tech on instagram and twitter and facebook but instagram and twitter's almost active but for the last and final time these are the two colors here so let me know which one do you prefer but yeah so i'm gonna go and hop out of here so thanks for watching i'll see on

The next one and peace out you
