Reviews for the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1

86% Review Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (GT-N8010) Tablet | Notebookcheck
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. As well, the Korean manufacturer has reintroduced the use of the formerly ubiquitous stylus.

But because they aren’t, and because we’re truly lovers of a unique experience, it’s easy to recommend this tablet as one of the most versatile smart devices on the market today. With the S-Pen, fun and entertaining connectivity with the rest of the Samsung Galaxy devices for media and communication, and one of the newest versions of Google’s mobile OS onboard, the Galaxy Note 10.1 is certainly the hottest Android tablet carried by Verizon today. Have a peek and start penning away!

Nexus 10 vs Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet comparison review
Source: PC Advisor English
The Note 10.1 is an interesting and useful tablet. It's S-Pen offers creative options that make it unique amongst today's breed of tablets. It is reasonably priced and performs well. But the Nexus 10 is a game changer: the first tablet that can outperform the iPad, and priced to shift. It's just a shame it is tough to get hold of.

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10.1 is a bold experiment; the concept clearly has potential. However, the execution is wide of the mark – despite glimmers of excellence, the fiddly S Note software sours the experience. With the right software, the Note 10.1’s appeal could be rejuvenated, but as it stands, it’s an intriguing concept that just doesn’t quite come off.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Review
Source: Ubergizmo English
If you don’t use the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 as a stylus device, it is a good tablet, but chances are that you can find very competitive offers out there that will outperform it in one way or another. The value of the Galaxy Note 10.1 is clearly not in the “specs” alone.

Granted, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 lacks the one competitive spec that other top-tier tablets—specifically the Acer Iconia Tab A700, Apple iPad, and Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700—have at the same or lesser price. Samsung's rendering enhancements help lessen the sting of this omission somewhat, but the difference is clear, particularly with text-heavy content. But, when you factor in the handy stowaway S Pen and Samsung's pen-optimized software, and suddenly the Note 10.1 gets an edge all its own. Throw in the Galaxy Note 10.1 Wi-Fi tablet's solid performance, and the Note 10.1 is squarely back in the mix.

Even without its S Pen features, the Galaxy Note 10.1 is an incredibly competent tablet. Featuring a powerful quad-core processor, superb battery life and lightweight, travel friendly design, the tablet is a solid choice for any user looking for an alternative to Apple's iPad.

Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10.1 adds multitasking and stylus control to Android, but it won’t be everyone’s ideal tablet.

So, really, is a stylus enough of a difference to make you choose this tablet over another? Actually, the more you use it, the more natural it becomes. And the nippy processor and extra RAM mean the Note 10.1 flies along very agreeably. The display is good, but not amazing. This tablet won’t win over Apple-fanciers, or those who want the faux-laptop qualities of the Asus Transformer series. But it’s smart, speedy and enjoyable to use.

It’s hard not to be immediately sceptical of a device that on the face of it is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 with an S-Pen thrown in. You really have to be sold on the S-Pen because in every other department, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 pales in comparison to the new iPad, Asus Transformer Pad Infinity and even the Google Nexus 7. Maybe the next iteration of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 will deliver the full package because at the moment, it’s not quite there.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 lacks one competitive spec that other top-tier tablets--specifically the Acer Iconia Tab A700, the Apple iPad, and the Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700--have at the same or a lesser price: a high-pixel-density display. Samsung's rendering enhancements help lessen the sting of that omission somewhat; but the difference remains clear, particularly with text-heavy content.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 USA Review
Source: Slashgear English
This tablet-like device, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, is Samsung’s best effort to date in the 10-inch category of devices. You’ve got a fabulous 10.1-inch HD display as well as some excellent front-facing speakers, making this one of the top entertainment devices in tablet form on the market. With the Samsung Exynos quad-core 1.4GHz processor under the hood, you’ve also got the power to work with beastly apps like Photoshop Touch, to play videos at full HD, and to blast your enemies to oblivion in the most high-end games on the market.

So, there's nothing wrong with the well-priced Tab 2 10.1. But neither is it anything special. Given that the iPad has had a significant upgrade since the first Tab's release, and that the Android competition is fiercer than ever, it looks slightly outdated here.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 offers features you won’t find on iOS. But a third party stylus won’t cost the earth if you really need a pen substitute and for creativity, developers continue to push the most innovative and interactive apps in the direction of the iPhone and iPad. The Note has carved out a creative niche amidst tough competition from the very affordable Nexus 7 and the workaholic-friendly Transformer Infinity. But the iPad is still the tablet to beat.

10.1": The netbook/subnotebook has a quite small display format. Nonetheless, it is a common format for netbooks.
