Today we have spotted a useful Samsung ATIV Q video review that offers a conclusion about this hybrid dual-booting tablet or notebook.
The 16-minute YouTube video review that you can see below this story gives a really good observation of the Samsung ATIV Q, but before you view it you may want to know some of the main specs of the device. The ATIV Q is powered by a 1.6GHz Intel Haswell Core i5 processor, has Intel HD 4400 graphics, a 13.3-inch qHD+ display with 3200 x 1800 resolution, 4GB of RAM, and a 256GB internal SSD storage.
Users can switch operating systems with one touch of a button, and it has a flexible hinge so that it can be used as either a tablet or a laptop. It also supports use of the built-in S Pen stylus. The video review of the Samsung ATIV Q begins with some spec details, before looking at the hybrid form factor, described as sturdy. It then goes on to look at the keyboard, display, interface, processor and much more.
Pros of the device are seen as the high-resolution display, form factors and the ability to switch between the Android and Windows platforms. When it comes to cons, the keyboard arrangement and lack of backlight are criticized. Other drawbacks are that in tablet mode the USB 3.0 and HDMI ports are not reachable, and also that the record resolution seems to have some difficulties with app and interface scaling.
In conclusion the Samsung ATIV Q earns a 9-point rating with huge amounts of praise for aspects such as its “zippy performance,” and simple conversion. Ultimately the device is described as “raising the bar so high for all portable computer makers that only the price can be a deterrent.”
