With the new Galaxy NotePro 12.2 , Samsung Malaysia is calling this as a progressive tablet which is designed to take on most of your day to day work in a portable device. Priced at RM2,999, the Galaxy NotePro 12.2 is rather expensive for a typical Android tablet.
Summary: Introduced this year at the Consumer Electronics Show , the Galaxy Note|Pro (NotePro from here on in) is a giant tablet, designed to meet the needs of the most demanding mobile professional. The specifications are mind-blowing so far as Android tablets go. It features a 12.2″ form factor, with WQXGA Widescreen (18:10 display ratio), running at 2560×1600 pixels (for those playing at home, that’s over four million pixels).

Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 Review: Huge Tablet, Not for the Average User, Great for Multitasking (Video)
31 May 2014
Conclusion: Overall, we give this model a 9 out of 10 for design, a 9 for hardware and a 9 for OS and UI. The final grade is 9 out of 10 and this device is not for you, the average user, but rather for medical professionals, business users, schools and people who want a Surface Tablet, but they also need Android.
Pros: good display, good audio, above average camera, business apps, stylus, multi window, remote PC, Magazine UX is actually nice, powerful hardware
Cons: big price, heavy in user’s hand, battery life could be better, not for average user, slight lag in multitasking and Asphalt 8
Excerpt: “Bigger is better.” That’s the mantra smartphone makers have taken to heart over the past few years. The tablet industry, meanwhile, has mostly focused on making pint-size, portable slates like the iPad mini and the Nexus 7. Not anymore.
Pros: Stellar battery life — lasts multiple days with heavy use. Beautiful 2,560 x 1,600 WQXGA display is great for watching video or multitasking. MicroSD for additional storage.
Cons: Some apps and design features seem more suited to a mouse pointer and PC than a tablet. Hefty price tag. Occasional performance issues.
Summary: Samsung is bringing its A game with the Galaxy NotePRO, the sophisticated design, the powerful processor, the interactive software, the superb display combined with all of the additional features Samsung threw in make this is an elegant and efficient addition to the Galaxy Family and it’s definitely a remarkable start to the year.
Cons: Physically large and expected to be expensive.
Conclusion: Yes, the Note Pro 12.2 is big and expensive. It currently costs about $200 more than the smaller, though otherwise very similar Note 10.1 2014 edition. Are the couple of inches worth paying that much for? You certainly don’t have to if you don’t want to. Samsung offers the Note line in 5.7, 8.0, 10.1, and 12.2-inch screen sizes. And there’s the Galaxy Tab line, also in several sizes, if you don’t need the S Pen.
Pros: Good size for S Pen use and multitasking, Reasonably thin and light for size, Bright, high-res screen, Great speakers, MicroSD support, Good battery life
Cons: Occasional performance stuttering, Screen isn’t IPS or OLED, $700-$750 price tag is high, Difficult to move around with due to size
Conclusion: It's far more difficult to recommend one tablet over the other than it is to recommend one phone over the other. With Samsung, the trouble is generally telling one Galaxy Tab apart from the next - even generationally they look very, very similar. But here Samsung opens a new door - this tablet is wholly unique.
Summary: The Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is labeled as a “business” tablet, and that gives it a completely different persona. This tablet may not completely replace your laptop for many tasks, but it does come quite close. The display is very good and comes in a typical Samsung style. There are the gamut of features including the complete S-Pen ecosystem of apps. A bunch of preloaded business centric apps give the tablet some extra productive capabilities than most tablets.
Pros: Very good quality screen, Lots of preloaded apps for business users, Quite thin and light, considering its sheer size, Works well for multimedia consumption
Cons: Costs a lot of money, Size may be a stumbling block for some users
