Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014)

Verge Review

When I was in high school, I fantasized about leaving my numerous spiral bound notebooks behind in favor of a handheld digital drawing board. That technology didn’t arrive in the form of the iPad until after I finished college, but that didn’t stop me from buying one the weekend it was released, along with that weird rubbery case and a $30 stylus. I used the stylus maybe three times, and it wasn’t at all like taking notes in my notebook — it was more like drawing on a tiny white board with a...

    I think that this tablet by Samsung is good but not good enough, the design is wonderful, but there are disadvantages in performance and disadvantages as well as in mimicry bitten characteristics of other companies

    We can say that there is a creative touch in this model of tablets, this does not mean that the tablet is a competitor in the market on the contrary, is a very strong competitor, especially for Apple

    thank you

    I'm coming from an iPad and so far I'm loving the Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 Edition). The display is bright, sharp and vivid, producing an excellent color palette. Unlike David's review, I have not noticed any significant performance issues or lag. This tablet is a multi-taskers dream, and the CPU seems to keep up.
    Probably my only complaint would be the recharge time. Battery life is comparable to an iPad but it takes much longer to recharge. I wish they would have equipped this tablet with USB 3, like the Note 3 phone. I also really have no complaints with TouchWiz (I've never understood the big deal with TouchWiz). Personally, I use Apex Launcher but TouchWiz provides some really cool software features you wouldn't get with a Nexus device (ie: Multi Window, layered windows, dual camera photos, S Pen features).

    PROS
    - Design (the faux leather a great improvement)
    - Light and thing
    - Great display (best Android tablet display to date)
    - Battery life (comparable to iPad)
    - Overall performance (I never had the lag issues David mentions)
    - Multitasking and S Pen features exclusive to the Galaxy Note line
    - Dual stereo speakers (with they were front facing but they sound loud and full)
    - Bundled software (Sketchbook Pro, Bloomberg Businessweek)

    CONS
    - Viewing angles could be better
    - Slow recharge time (would have been better with USB3
    - Rear camera (I literally never used my iPad's camera so I really don't care about tablet camera performance, but if you do, its not so great)

    8.8/10
