    Nice!

    Can the USB slots also be used for things like keyboards and thumb drives?

    Unfortunately it does not act as a USB hub, although that would've been cool. Tried connecting a flash drive, no go.

    That's normal Windows behaviour.

    I guess this is specific to Samsung or USB C laptops/tablets because this doesn't occur with my Surface Pros. And I suppose it's better for the long term health of the battery.

    Majority of reviews for this tablet was the gorgeous display and it's competitive battery life. But despite of an incredible screen and strong battery life, if you aren't able to make liberal use of Samsung's Flow, there aren't many reasons to buy this one over similarly-priced competitors.

    I have seen it in any Windows tablet I had for the past 4 years at least: Cintiq Companion, Surface Pro 3, Surface Book 1-2, Galaxy Book.
    Windows tells the same thing all the times if you plug something that's almost fully charged: "plugged in, not charging".
    As I said, it is normal Windows behaviour.

    there is one major reason....significantly superior inking...


    can confirm have experienced this on multiple Windows devices including Surface (and initially made me think the charging mechanism was faulty)

    Immagine me the first time I saw this was on the Cintiq Companion and I immediately thought I had the infamous "plugged in not charging" problem that plagued that device. :D

    Haha, my first reaction with that happening on my GB12 was, 'Give me my 100%, dammit! I must have it before I can do anything else!'

    Is it normal that the power supply is not able to provide about ~15W to the CPU package?
    I did try to play a couple games while changing some parameters with ThrottleStop, and I can have one of the following situations:
    - I keep the power consumption of the CPU package under 10W, and the game does not play very well
    - I let the package absorb about 15W (could peak to 17 briefly), game runs very well but the battery slowly drains while plugged in (to the point of fully discharging if open for enough time)

    I'm mainly doing this by regulating the Speed Shift parameter.

    I think it would be a bit sad if the bottleneck is not the CPU but some internal power supply limitation, I'm using a PD charger through an USB-C Hub but they both should be able to provide more power than needed. It happened in the past with the Samsung charger too I think.
