Excerpt: The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is a complete and feature-rich tablet that is different from the other models in circulation for the ability to write directly on the screen with the stylus, the so-called S-Pen, so it is ideal for taking notes, to draw or to enter the text within images.
Pros: Full HD video footage; Memory; S-Pen; Front camera, quad-core processor, UMTS with HSDPA, SIM card slot, GPS.
Summary: Ultimately, we prefer the latest iPad for Verizon over the Note 10.1 because Apple's tablet has a sharper display, longer battery life and wider app selection. Plus, the iPad has a more premium design.
Conclusion: We end this review with a spot of deja vu. When we reviewed the Nokia 808 PureView , it was poor phone with a mind blowing feature - the camera. In the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, we have a mediocre tablet with incredible pen input.
Pros: Fantastic pen input, Good app suite, Thin and light
Cons: Underwhelming design, User interface is stuttery, Too much Samsung bloatware
Conclusion: Samsung has done an admirable job with the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet and it certainly offers some stiff competition to the family of iPads and other Android-based tablets. Whether or not it is a "game changer" remains to be seen, but for those not committed to the Apple cult, it is a very credible...
Conclusion: Samsung hasn't disappointed us with their new flagship tablet. The Galaxy Note 10.1 has everything we wish for in a tablet except a full HD display: a bright and sharp display, active pen input, an excellent software bundle with customizations that improve usability, dual band WiFi, an AV remote and...
Pros: Cutting edge fast CPU, S Pen, quality components, good speakers, AV remote.
Summary: A fresh note. Most currently-available high-end tablets feature Nvidia-based hardware solutions. While these are certainly good choices, Samsung chose to make use of its own in-house technology for the brand new Galaxy Note 10.1. In doing so, Samsung has hit a home run in terms of performance.
Pros: - Good manufacturing quality, - High contrast display, - Very high performance, - Good accessories, - Interesting additional features, - 50 GB Dropbox storage, - 3G version optional, That Samsung opted for a self-made processor that makes the combined Tegra 3 competition appear obsolete.
Cons: - Only 16 GBs internal memory, - HDMI only via adapter, - Not very bright display, - Mediocre speakers, The display could be a bit brighter, and more internal memory could also certainly be put to good use.
Summary: The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is Samsung's best 10-inch tablet yet. It's propelled by a powerful quad-core chip and the S Pen stylus marks it out from the competition (so long as you have a use for it).
Pros: Fast performance from quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM; Bright, bold screen; the S Pen stylus is a helpful addition on a tablet.
Cons: Feels somewhat cheap; No Android Jelly Bean; few apps make full use of the S Pen and some are buggy; Some S Pen features aren't enabled by default.
