When it comes to its features, practicality and performance, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 leaves its competitors a long way behind. On the other hand, the same cannot be stated for its display, which is solid, yet not nearly as impressive.
The conclusion is clear — this is an excellent tablet, one of the best offered at the moment, even when all available mobile operating systems are taken into account (iOS, Android OS and Windows 8 RT), but there is still room for improvement.
Users who will be using the S Pen frequently will be most satisfied, given that this provides the Galaxy Note 10.1’s greatest advantage, despite all other qualities hardware or software-wise, with excellent S Apps. Those who do not require the S Pen will also be pleased with this device, but they could be equally pleased with other devices, regardless of the manufacturer, and even saving a few bucks at the same time.
- Exceptional performance
- S Pen and S Apps practicality
- Solid build and modern and elegant design
- Enduring battery
- Insufficiently high screen resolution (and pixel density)
- Proprietary 30-pin connector
- Just average photograph and video quality
