by birtanpublished on February 21, 2021

Yo what's good y'all off the trail and you know what man I know it took me like way too long to finally do this video and I admit it that's my bad I just been focused on like 40 different things that once worrying about that when I should just be worrying about focusing on one thing at a time and now the new galaxy books are about to come out the ion and the Flex that's about to replace this and I had this thing for like six months now but you know what since I had to stay for six months now I feel like I had this thing long enough to break it in and all that good stuff so this is it this is finally here

That's my 2019 notebook night pro consumer review man ain't it knows in a good minute let's get into it alright so yeah um I mean I'm back I solicit man I know it's been like a good minute it's been like three weeks of my best inside like uploaded an actual good video that sat down and edited all that like a legit video like it's been a little bit now and I apologize for that like I said that's my bad so we good with that now I come back to this and now back with something I really wanted to do was my 2019 notebook my pro review

Even though the new Galaxie books coming though because it's still a good laptop like just because the new galaxy books are about to come out don't mean that you should get this and basically I upgraded downgrading in terms of the price but upgraded from the surface book to it was a nice little laptop I like the whole laptop slash tablet thing where you can detach the screen and turn it into a tablet but I just had way too many issues with it and I was just like nah ain't gonna do this and that's why I'm here now for my 2019 notebook 9 Pro by Samsung so I mean it might not have a

Detachable screen where you can just detach it from the laptop but I mean you can still flip it around like a regular to one and use it as a tablet like this it's just gonna be weighted in how the surface book to do it but if you want to you can still go ahead and flip this thing around you can go ahead and set up as a stand like this like you don't really got worried about it if you want to use as a tablet you can accidentally just turned it off but ya had this thing for like about six months now and I'm not gonna lie like I've been feeling this laptop man as a Samsung Knight I

Think they did a pretty good job on this thing like I'm not even gonna lie nowaday not all Sun and rainbows and everything I obviously with this thing because there's some things I definitely don't like about it but I mean it's like cool over I use this thing for video editing and I work on render fee if y'all know buy renovate that's my website my business and all that that means I'm over here managing the website I'm over here making pictures I'm painting dotnet like I'm doing a lot of stuff with this a lot of creators stuff and this work good for

That so as a creator I'm feeling this thing and if you want so you can go ahead and go into the Samsung settings and tweak the screen if you want to like I can get my auto mode I can change the color setting it's like there's a bunch of stuff on here that you could do and this thing coming to active pins no not the s-pen that's called the active pin so basically what the active pen that has a quadruple a battery in it and it kind of works like the Microsoft pin but with this you can't use it on like a galaxy tab or your Galaxy Note or anything like that like you can with

Like the s-pen on the note you can use that on the tab you just can't do that with this notebook 9 probe now with the 2017 notebook 9 pro this thing actually had the s-pen like you could just put it right under here but with this thing they changed it all up in with the Galaxy books the expense coming back so whatever so when that comes out you can use the s-pen from your Galaxy Tab and you can use it on your galaxy book or your Galaxy Note same thing with the node you can use your S Pen on the tab in a notebook and a notebook guest pen you can use on either those whatever you

Get it you get the point but you can't really store this thing anywhere like it's magnetic but like you can't really put it in a reasonable spot like I could put it over here but like it's not really gonna stay on that will unless I just go ahead and put it up here that's better or you could put it over here but those are like the only two spots like it's kind of sucks but it is what it is now for me I'm not gonna lie I like the s-pen way better that's why I'm like kind of glad they're gonna do that with the galaxy book flex cuz imma get there but the active pen is

Nice too it works exactly like the Microsoft pen and a Dell pen because it has two buttons in one so basically I can go ahead and click on the front of the button go ahead and control whatever I need to do and I can go ahead and click the back of the button here to go and right click so imma go and show you that right now so I'm going hold on to this back button right here going to click on paint.net and then yeah there we go so you can see I just right click but let me actually go ahead and tell you all what's going on with this thing so for the screen you

Get a touchscreen sixteen by nine 13.3 inch 1080p LED display on the left side of the laptop you got two Thunderbolt three ports on the right you got a SD card reader a power button slash fingerprint reader and you got a USBC port and inside you got a if Jen Intel Core i7 mobile processor the 85 65 you you get eight or 16 gigs of RAM and you get 256 gigs of SSD or you get 512 gigs for the graphics you gotta integrated until you HD graphics 620 you got a four thousand eight hundred million power fast charging battery it's Bluetooth 5.0 and

You got 50 cc's of spill resistance oh alright then that's enough I'm gonna be honest with y'all I didn't know half the things I just read I'm gonna be real with y'all okay I don't really get that deep into computers but I want to go talk about the things I like about this and the things I'm not really feeling I don't really like and I'm going to talk about the things I like first so one of them is the design in this day like y'all when I first got this thing I was just like yo these things don't like it looks nice man because you got the diamond-cut design as they call it and

That's I'm I'm really feeling about this like I really like that design and it's just like really clean and minimal like I'm feeling the whole thing here but before I upgraded from the surface book I had this big old thing this thing came out in 2014 or something like that and it's a pretty cheap model from Samsung it's one of their Samsung notebooks but it was like this thing was 125 on Facebook marketplace so I wasn't really complaining and I really need a new computer so I got this and I liked it like I mean I ran this channel for this thing up until like July June or July

Somewhere around there so this thing's still trooping but another thing about the design is just look at those bezels man like they're basically not even they're like this so slim like that's modern man like I'm really feeling that like you see a lot of laptops out here they got like these thicker bezels and everything I'm not really feeling but with the notebook and I Pro you got something like this so that's dope and even with those slim bezels even got the camera still here at the top so you don't got to worry about that it's not unlike the bottom of the laptop like

There is on some other laptops I don't really get that I don't know why they do that but that ain't for me another thing I like about this day the build like this thing sturdy like you don't creak or anything when you use it like this is a pretty premium laptop like you're paying premium prices so I hope it's premium but still but like the build quality this is the best you're gonna get out here it's all aluminum that's not a one piece of plastic inside except for the keyboard and maybe the trackpad not sure what material that is but it

Feel good – that's besides the point but still basically young got worried about this thing breaking in like two years number three is portability so basically what I mean about that is that this thing is slimming light it's a good size for me it's 13 inches that's all they got though which kind of sucks but I mean I was kind of a good thing for me because like I had a 15-inch laptop as you all know this thing is 15 inches but I was forced to go to 13 inches and get this and now like 13 they're just way more than 15 inches but besides that like I said this thing is really slim

It's really light like it's really light it's crazy how light this thing is and if you put in a bag or something you're barely gonna notice it that could be a good thing or a bad thing if you worry about losing things a lot but I mean it's good for you it's not gonna hurt your back while you're carrying it in your bag all day but I mean like even look at the screen I think it's crazy thin and even though it's so thin that whole build quality thing comes into place on you even gotta worry about this number for the speed on here so alright let me clarify some things first

Basically most of my experience came from this old big old thing this is heavy too by the way though like listen to this but basically that notebook over there has a hard drive and it's like a really slow hard drive so to go to this that's a huge upgrade this thing at the SSD and then everything and it's one of those fastest and since these out there I don't know if it's made by Samsung or not I'd assume so because well they made this but that's why I think it's so fast one reason is because of the SSD but like you got a core i7 f gen and everything like that so it's just like

It's like blazing fast like I said that's a content creator I don't really got to worry about the speed on this thing because it got me they got an 8 gigs of ram model with 256 gigs of storage or they got 16 gigs of ram with 512 gigs of storage I got the 16 gigs one so I max this thing out as far as I know you can't upgrade this thing no so that sucks so like five years or now something like that you want to upgrade this thing I'm pretty sure you can but for now we smooth like this is good I added 4k videos and everything like that I'm

Editing right now on this thing in this video right here but it does a job good it has some lag when I'm editing a Vegas Pro but it's still good it's an ATP you ain't got to worry about no lag at all like that should be like your last number five how well it works the Samsung ecosystem I'm not gonna get too deep into that because I already did a whole video on the Samsung ecosystem but check this out my galaxy watch can unlock my notebook my phone can unlock my notebook to buchan go ahead and transfer files between them I can get my phone calls my notifications and I could

Even turn on my phone's hotspot from the notebook my samsung wireless charging portable battery can charge this notebook but this pretty much really only one thing that's missing from this ecosystem is me being able to use the s-pen for my note 9 and use it on my notebook for example or use a notebook best pen on my node or whatever what the galaxy booklet got the s-pen like I said so you can use it as spend on your no to your tab or whatever but yeah that's a good contender for the Samsung ecosystem especially because Samsung flows more reliable on here than any other Windows

PC I don't really get why but it is what it is number 6 is the keyboard in the trackpad on this thing man the keyboard in the trackpad on this notebook not pro guys like it's crazy like it's so reliable and it's moving everything like I just I'm really feeling it man so let me start off with the keyboard so the keyboard is don't got that much key travel I'm gonna be honest with you and I'm gonna let you listen to how the keyboard sounds on here and the key travel it feels nice so it's not like the butterfly keyboards on the MacBooks or anything but it feels good

Like I mean I like the keyboard okay like we got the point another thing with the keyboard is and I hated this with the surface book by the way but this guy auto-brightness on the keyboard so if it's light outside the keyboard backlight won't turn on and if it's dark obviously he'll turn on on the surface book I had to like constantly change the brightness on the keyboard because I want to waste battery or whatever or I just couldn't see the keyboard because I turned it off earlier as for the trackpad it's using those windows precision drivers so smooth scrolling

Gestures and everything like I don't got any complaints with that like one of my favorite things about this is that trackpad man all right so next up it's a screen on this thing so this is a Samsung notebook and this got a Samsung screen on it so I really think I need get too deep into that because we all know that sounds good at making screens already this is a Samsung notebook and since I put their own screen in there so I don't really get too specific about that because we all know how a samsung do this screen it's like they make some pretty good screen it's like do I really

Need to bring that up so you get the same contrasted colors and everything the screen is pretty crisp it get pretty bright and get pretty low too and basically typical Samsung you can go ahead and change the settings like I said already in samsung settings and make it more natural for when you're editing or picture editing where's that called photo editing and everything so you don't got to worry about the colors because like I said you could just change it in the Samsung settings but I already brought this up but the bezels

On here is like just really slim and I'm like that's one of my favorite things about this tool that just besides the trackpad at the screen like there ain't a lot of laptops out here that's gonna give you that full screen experience I don't even think the MacBook got those slim bezels yet I know the Dell XPS dude though number 8 is the active pen so the build quality on this active pen is pretty good like this is actually metal on you and yeah you can most definitely feel that's matter when you hold me but I mean if you're taking notes for college or anything with this active pen

That's gonna be good for you for artists I know somebody did a whole video on that on this notebook night pro so if you want to go and watch that links down below because I don't draw I take notes okay in I'm gonna take notes that much so but the active pen is a go I just don't like the whole storage team number nine is old Samsung pre-installed apps so it kind of ties into the Samsung ecosystem again but this thing come with Samsung pre-installed apps so they got some apps out here that you probably never seen before and they got some apps on here

That just literally comes to jag elsey phone your Galaxy Tab like we got Samsung knows we got live message which comes on the northern the Galaxy Tabs Studio Plus which is the video editor we got voice know Samsung gallery like Samsung flow we got a lot of stuff on you and on the Windows Store they literally just released some new apps like smart things which ain't not here which I don't get that it's not supported on here because it doesn't have an ARM processor which why Samsung you know that literally makes no sense right that would be dope to have smart

Things out here when I first saw it on here I was like finally and then I couldn't use it see ya Samsung work on that I need that out here but they got pent up in everything on here too like that just came out so that's nice and then you got other apps on here like online support so basically this is your Help Center for your notebook and you can go to your Samsung PC help and look at your articles or whatever but besides that you got like Samsung updated Samsung recovery like you got a decent amount of stuff on here you can just under stall all that if you want to

Though I don't know why you will want to uninstall some of these things like especially like Samsung notes or galleries to make that because those are literally just pictures from your phone your Galaxy Tab they just sync throughout everything so I wouldn't delete it but the fact that they even made a video editor on here it's interesting number 10 the indicator lights it's okay I know that sounds stupid but if you have a surface book or had a surface book you would know I couldn't even see what my surface book it was on or off like I

Will just have to guess and just press the power button and see whatever pops up so the fact that I gotta indicate the light on here now like I can sleep at night now number 11 I'm gonna just stop counting on my hands now the connectivity I'm here with the Wi-Fi and the Bluetooth it's pretty good on here like the Wi-Fi speeds on here is pretty good and the Bluetooth on here is actually Bluetooth 5 so that's really dope number 12 the fan on here is pretty quiet I'm assuming only has one fan but like the fan doesn't really ramp up or anything it

Stays off most of the time and even when it is running you can barely hear it so the fan on here is a go alright time to get to the point that some of y'all probably don't want to hear but some of y'all need to hear that's the things I don't like about this thing so the first thing is that the FN key on this thing is just annoying so they prioritize the f1 f2 f3 all those keys right there but they don't prioritize like the media keys like the volume and the brightness and all that and I like to keep that on but let's say

I want to go ahead and scroll with these arrow keys here how's it going to turn that off and then do it and then go and switch back like it's just annoying number two is that the diamond cut edge on here is actually pretty easy to scratch so – actually kind of dirty right now but there's actually a couple of scratches on this thing already and it's kinda hard to clean with this thing because if you grab like some of the fabric and try to clean it it's gonna cut the fabric like guys this thing is sharp if each other person to it with like a cloth or something it's not sharp

When you touch it but it might be sharp when you're trying to clean it number 3 set the graphics on this thing sucks I can only get an integrated GPU with the processor now that don't really affect my video editing but I just want to put that out there so if you're trying to play for night or something on this thing it's a no-go don't do it this is really for power users that don't really game or anything so I would just say put that all to the side and get something like I don't know the odyssey notebooks that's from Samsung because this ain't it chief number 4 is even though the

Speakers are like decently loud they have like zero bass like it's a lot louder compared to the 2017 noble 9 pro but compared to like the tab at 6 or something like that they don't match them ok I'm not really feeling it that much now with the galaxy Book flex they got AKG speakers so I'm hoping those are better but I hear they just kind of suck and number 5 the galaxy birds have delay with Bluetooth on here now I have to bowl 700 headphones or whatever those things are called they didn't have any delay but with these there's just delay for some reason

I don't know why but it's there so just know that we'll see if it's deer with the galaxy bug flexing the ion but I let's get to the last thing that thing worth point now battery life its average okay it's not that good but it ain't that great either so it's just average it got fast charging though but yeah I'm not that crazy about the battery life like that's just how it is like look how thin this thing is I do you really think they could fit that big of a battery in it but alright so let's talk about the BIOS now so the BIOS it's pretty limited it's

One of those you bf5 bios's I really don't even know what a UEFI is so basically you can't install like Windows 8.1 or Windows 8 Windows 7 Windows Vista or whatever you pretty much just stuck with Windows 10 but like I'm pretty sure nobody's really worried about that I can't figure out how to hack and touch this thing but you can't put Linux on it or one of those other OS is if you want to get it today for me I just pretty much just stickler for my stuff come with if I'm being honest and let's talk about the webcam on this thing so this is the webcam and the

Microphones on the notebook micro so I'm pretty much just in my kitchen with regular light and everything cuz like this died deal situation if you're using your webcam and microphone but yeah so this is the webcam quality so what do y'all think about it my opinion it's not really that good to me but like what would laptop be just like let's be real obviously I don't know what the microphone quality sounds like yet so I can't say nothing about that but what do y'all think about it another thing worth pointing now this has a Windows 10 home now Windows 10 Pro

So if you want Windows 10 Pro you gotta upgrade windows like you got to go into the settings go to update and security go to activation and then you gotta upgrade windows I really need Windows 10 Pro Windows 10 home is good enough for me but some people might care about this so if you want the Windows 10 Pro you gotta buy it or if you don't want to buy it you better go ahead and go on the Pirate Bay or something and find the illegal version I'm not gonna tell you how to do that I won't lie though I do do it like all the time like who do I look like paying for windows but yeah

Windows 10 home and one more thing this isn't one of those one finger lift laptops because if you try to do that it's gonna do that I don't get what people's thing is we're flipping a laptop of one finger but I don't even care about that type of stuff well apparently there's like some diehard people that need that on their laptop so if you care about that it ain't gotten it wait what that literally made no sense if you want it it don't got it but yeah I mean like overall I really recommend this thing like as a content creator

I'm really feeling this thing now I don't use the SD card because I just record with my phone and then transfer over with Samsung flow but I can't see as a concert creator like I said who records 4k videos and works on renovating pictures and making like graphics and all that stuff it's good for that if you want a game on this thing that's a no-no unless you want to get like an external graphics thing but I don't know how that works so I can't tell you about that but why isn't the fingerprint scanner working all of a sudden when they always do of

Course things just wanna break on the video and then of course when I want to show the issues on video it decides to work that's how life works kids so that's pretty much all I got for y'all that's my notebook knife pro review I hope it's good for y'all I hope y'all learned a lot from this and I'm gonna be keeping this thing even when I get the galaxy book flex I think if I decide I don't want to keep it I'm gonna just keep it initially when I get the galaxy book flex for comparison's and all that good stuff and then I'll purge it solely but yeah so do this thing get the

Jenning step of approval if you don't know what that is basically do I recommend it I got a hold Jenny stamp of approval thing like Esau that's right you saw this sticker right like come on this is a whole big thing now it started off as a Spotify playlist which you should follow so I'll leave the link down below it got the best rap music in the game right there that you should listen to just a shameless a little plug right there but yeah so what y'all think about the 2019 notebook night bro let me know in the comments below but yeah that's all I got for you also thanks for

Watching if you got any questions about this let me know in the comments below trust me I like I'll actually reply like I know that youtubers I always tell people to go ahead and comment on their video and never reply even though they never don't like okay like let's be real here but yes so me and my notebook and I Pro will see you in the next one probably just me but yeah peace so
