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

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.

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.

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 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.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is made from plastics. This has come to be accepted as standard from Samsung. But it is not because they just do not care, but because it is the best choice for what they set out to do. It keeps the weight down, which is important as devices get bigger and it is still sturdy. Design-wise, the device looks like most other Samsung devices out there at the moment, which is not a bad thing. Despite the proportions, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 still manages to be comfortable for one handed use. Buttons are only on the right side, with nothing but a microUSB port on the left. The S-Pen, which used to be one of the selling points of this device, seems unnecessary now. Android just does not seem to require stylus input, though there are undoubtedly users out there who cherish the S-Pen for specific purposes that are more niche.

The 1280 x 800 resolution and 189 ppi make for a beautiful display. As usual for Samsung, they have included plenty of bells and whistles, in the form of Samsung apps and features. It is enough to perplex the uninitiated in some cases or to simply take up space while the user only uses a handful of everyday apps. The Exynos 4 Quad that runs at 1,6 GHz paired with 2 GB RAM ensures smooth performance with no problems, and the battery life is decent. Overall, this is a great device, and is up there with the best 8 inch devices.

Bridging the gap. The Galaxy Note 8.0 with its powerful hardware and S Pen is designed to seamlessly integrate into Samsung's Galaxy portfolio and fill the gap between 5.5-inch and 10.1-inch devices. Can Samsung continue their success with this new member and potentially outsell the iPad Mini? We will have to see.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 Tablet is a solid product that feels well-built when you pick it up and handle it. Dropping it is probably not the best idea, but if you did so accidentally I’m sure it could survive a few bumps and bruises. Like most devices, the Galaxy Note 8 doesn't come with protectors or a case and this is left up to the consumer.

Samsung is the most prolific manufacturer on the planet. The Note 8 is the true goldilocks device of Samsung’s ever-growing Note range of tablets and smartphones. It offers excellent performance and it’s also rather eye-catching. We’re just not sure whether it’s worth more than the iPad Mini, however.

The Note 510 is a great performer with lacklustre build quality. The iPad mini is better built and has a larger apps ecosystem. The Galaxy Note 510 on the other hand has voice-calling, a better display, the S Pen functionality, expandable storage, multi-window capabilities and the Android OS with access to the Google Play store and Samsung app store. Both choices are good, and it comes down to price, and ecosystem preference for the user.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8: Proof the pen is mightier?

The Fire HD 8.9 also lacks many of the Note 8’s key and subsidiary features but at £230 is cheaper still and has a larger, 1920 x 1200, screen. The 16GB Nexus 7 is less than half the price. If the Note 8 included 3G in the £340 asking price - surely not an impossibility if Asus can offer the 3G FonePad for £180 - or was £50 cheaper, it would be an easy recommendation over all the competition, Android and iOS alike, but as it stands the price is perhaps a wee bit high.

There's one main problem with the Galaxy Note 8.0, and that's its high price tag. The tablet likely will appeal to fans of Samsung devices, but when Asus and Google are bringing out similarly specified tablets at a fraction of the price, we think the tablet will struggle to compete, even given its calling capability.

While you get two more cores with the Note 8.0 and the S Pen, and generally slightly better specifications, the choice as always boils down to the camp in which you are when it comes to software: Apple or Google. That said, if Android’s your tablet shtick, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is worth a look. The tablet is quick and works well and the S Pen’s a fun party trick that few other vendors can provide.

Overall it's an interesting concept, for those that want a tablet and smartphone in one device, aka a phablet, and think the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and rivals aren't big enough then this will be a likely front runner. However, you will look rather silly making a phone call if you don't use a hands-free method.

The Note 8.0 is an interesting tablet, that much is certain. It's one of the more powerful solutions on the market, and one of the only "tweener" options for those who aren't satisfied with other 7- and 10-inch form factor alternatives that abound. It's also equipped with a stylus (S Pen), which allows it to be far more functional that your average tablet.

If you love the idea of a traditional writing and drawing experience and prefer the more portable appeal over the Note 10.1 (or think the Note 2 is too small) then this is for you. If you're not really sold on the idea of brainstorming ideas with an S-Pen, but want a smaller sized tablet, the Nexus 7 or iPad Mini are cheaper options to go for instead.

There's a lot going for this design though. The size, we felt, was the perfect blend of portable and practical. There's enough space to use the S-Pen, but it will still fit in a winter coat pocket, just about. It is a well-built device and in the time we've spent with it, we've found ourselves thinking, "I could really enjoy owning one of these" far more than we thought "eugh".

The Galaxy Note 8.0 has a bunch of features you don't see on Apple's tablets, the Google Nexus 7, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 (7.0)$187.99 at BUYDIG.com or the Amazon Kindle Fire HD, most notably the S Pen and infrared TV remote. While you can duplicate those functions with other tablets, they require costly, clunky accessories. In a world where you can get a top-notch Android tablet for $200 and an iPad mini for $329, though, it's just too hard for me to recommend that you spend $400 instead. Artists, especially, will adore the Galaxy Note 8.0. But our Editors' Choice for small tablets, the best mainstream choice, remains the much less expensive, still very-capable Google Nexus 7.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 is going to be your perfect Samsung GALAXY S 4 companion – it’s got the same design aesthetic, it has a lot of the same features, and they both come in white! Of course when you find yourself marveling over the fact that the GALAXY S 4 is able to compete with this tablet for processing power, you’ll be a bit baffled about your Note purchase. The S-Pen will save the day, on the other hand, as there’s really nothing on the market that compares with what Samsung has done with this little value-added utensile.

The Galaxy Note 8.0 is made for people who loved the experience with the Galaxy Note 2 with the S Pen and who like to take advantage of a larger display without breaking the bank. The Samsung Multi Window feature is perfect for this type of form factor. Knowing that one of the primary use of tablets is movie consumption while travelling, we would have expected a little longer battery longevity for the Galaxy Note 8.0. Nonetheless, the latest Samsung tablet packs serious performance in a thin and light body that can still be held with one hand. The entertainment experience is great, and the imaging quality is sufficient for a tablet usage.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 SM-N9005

Ah, the phablet. It won't fit in the pocket of skinny jeans, and it gives hands a workout because of its size. Fans of the Galaxy Note 2 should note that the screen has grown from 5.5 inches to 5.7 inches, and is now an impressive 1080 x 1920 Super AMOLED display. Like most Samsung offerings, it is solidly built and even good looking with its metal frame on the sides. The back is plastic that is textured to look like leather, complete with faux stitches. At a quick glance, this looks pretty good, but it really is quite tacky looking if you're paying attention. Still, it is the best looking of the Note line. Samsung have managed to make the Note 3 slightly smaller than the Note 2 overall, and lighter too despite larger screen, more performance and better specs.

Under the hood is the 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor and 3 GB of RAM. Multitasking poses no problems which can be expected since the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 features the best specs among Android phones at the moment. Samsung has significantly improved the S Pen functionality with the Air Command controller. Triggered when the user slides out the S Pen, it allows one to launch great S Pen friendly apps with a single tap. Battery life is great and it will easily last more than a day of heavy use. Overall, this is a great device, and easily recommended as long as the size of this phablet is acceptable to the user.

It's a big handset that certainly won't be suitable for everyone, but it has already come down in price since it launched. It is currently available SIM-free for £549 direct from Samsung. On contract you can get the handset free from Vodafone on a two year, £35.50 per month contract with unlimted minutes, unlimited texts and 4GB of 4G data. If you can stump up that much cash per month for the full length of a 24-month contract then this is an outstanding slice of technology. There's not much choice when it comes to such giant phones, but when the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is this good, that's not really a problem.

Source: V3.co.uk English
Winning five rounds to the Galaxy Note 3's two, the LG G3 is the overall winner. Featuring a more intelligent design, crisper screen and significantly better camera, the LG G3 is one of the finest Android smartphones currently available. However, with the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 over halfway through its product lifecycle this really isn't all that surprising. LG's real competition is yet to arrive and things could well change with the launch of Samsung's fabled 2014 phablet, the Galaxy Note 4.

Galaxy S5 vs Note 3 head to head review
Source: V3.co.uk English
Having won four rounds to the Galaxy Note 3's two rounds the Galaxy S5 is the winner of our head to head review. Featuring a more ergonomic, water and dust resistant design, more robust portfolio of security services and significantly better rear camera than its phablet predecessor, the Galaxy S5 is currently the best Samsung handset available. However, featuring a larger, but equally impressive screen, slightly better battery and useful S Pen Stylus, there is still plenty to like about the Galaxy Note 3. If Samsung had got its act together and updated the phablet to the current KitKat version of Android and new version of Touchwiz, the battle would have been far, far closer.

After several weeks with a Galaxy Note 3 in hand, it’s clear that it is the best large-screened, stylus-supporting smartphone you can get. The S-Pen is the perfect companion tool for annotations on the fly, with some seriously impressive software enhancements – especially S Note and Action Memo. Performance from the Galaxy Note 3 is fantastic, and this time both the Exynos and Snapdragon models are up to scratch. There’s still no HMP support for the octa-core Exynos, but the lag is gone and performance is largely on-par with the Qualcomm model. I’d still be wanting Snapdragon-only features such as LTE and 4K video recording in my Note, but the Exynos model is still a solid choice.

There are a lot of large smartphones on the market, but none takes advantage of its sprawling display the way the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 does. Between the built-in stylus and all of the apps it can be used with, the Note 3 is the most versatile phablet around. We just wish it were able to take advantage of Sprint's Spark network.

For Rs 45,000, the Note 3 offers an excellent screen with solid multimedia performance. The stylus implementation is nicely done. So in short, if you're fine lugging around a big phone that requires both hands to operate, go ahead and buy the Note 3. It's one of the most powerful, oversized handset you can currently get in India. On the other hand, considering the phone's 45k price, the phone's interface doesn't feel premium. In fact, it feels cluttered at many places. The design is another aspect where Samsung needs to work on. So if you're not overly finicky about the specs, the LG Optimus G pro is a very good alternative. Priced under 30,000, it's a good Rs 15,000 cheaper too.

The Note 3 is an excellent evolution of the series and is by far our favourite large-screen phone. It is powerful, long lasting and has some noticeable improvements over the previous Notes. Ultimately its suitability will come down to whether or not the form factor is suitable for your needs – we know enough people in the pro- and anti-Phablet camps to try and make that decision for you. But if you want a larger screen than standard, and are prepared for the compromises that feature brings, the Note 3 is far and away the best option. Yet another truly excellent piece of hardware from Samsung.

From outsider to favorite in only three years
Source: Inside HW English
In the end, what’s left to say for Note 3 and gear? First of all, this general increase in number of everyday devices that are transformed into smart devices is becoming a trend, which is not a bad thing at all. Second of all, Note 3 isn’t much of an upgrade for Note 2 owners and it just isn’t worth the investment. Note 3, as an upgrade from a smaller model is an ideal solution.

If you haven't got the idea by now, the Galaxy Note 3 is a nice device. It's not without its flaws of course, and the way that Samsung sets things up on it is a little weird, but overall it's a solid product. One thing that I love and yet the default setting bugs me is the S Pen Keeper.

You can find the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 retailing online for about Rs 47,000, which is still a very high price for what’s on offer. Granted, the phone is packed to the gills with the latest hardware and specs but it lacks that premium look and feel. Faux chrome and leather is not something you want to see when you’re shelling out more than Rs 40,000. And then there’s all that plastic, which doesn’t really help its case. Samsung’s TouchWiz can get freaky at times too as we experienced random slow-downs and moments where the phone would just switch off when the display is off. However, nothing beats the Note 3 when it comes to battery life and stylus input as it's still among the best in the biz. I’m not sure if the falling rupee value is to blame entirely but all flagship smartphones seem incredibly overpriced and they really need to come down a notch or two, especially the droids. If you own a Note 2, then the Note 3 won’t really feel like much of an upgrade apart from the fact that it’s slimmer, lighter and has a slightly better camera.

Nokia Lumia 1520 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 3 comparison review: specifications and price
Source: PC Advisor English
In some ways (not least of which is that we’ve not got our hands on the 1520) it’s too early to give concrete buying advice. However, on the other hand, the fact that the Note 3 runs Android is a big advantage over the Lumia 1520 which runs Windows Phone 8. Both phablets have good cameras, but each has different strengths and weaknesses. With very similar processors, neither will disappoint when it comes to performance. We’ll update this review once we’ve fully tested out the Lumia 1520.

Put simply, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is the best phablet in the world right now. Its glorious 5.7in screen pumps out crisp detail and punchy colours while still remaining pretty portable, at least compared to the gargantuan 6.4in Sony Xperia Z Ultra. Not everyone will be, and for those people there are more fantastic flagship phones available than ever before, as just a glance at our Top 10 list of the best smartphones in the world will attest.

The Galaxy Note 3 has excellent performance in a 5.7” form factor, making it the perfect device to perform the tasks you would do on a smartphone or a tablet (reading books or watching videos), effectively nullifying the need to buy both devices. “Phablets” have become more common nowadays, and we have seen our share of them, like the 6.4-inch Sony Xperia Z Ultra, the 6-inch Acer Liquid S2 or the 6.3-inch Samsung Galaxy Mega.

While the Note 3 did put up some of the best numbers we’ve seen from any smartphone we’ve tested to date, in real-world use, it was also noticeably faster and more fluid than many other devices we’ve used. The speedy Snapdragon 800 SoC with Adreno 330 graphics, relatively fast internal storage, 3GB of system memory and Android 4.3 team up to produce an experience that’s currently among the best in the Android-based smartphone market.

Having won four of our six categories, Samsung's retained its crown as king of the big screen smartphone makers. The Galaxy Note 3 has a better screen and processor and is far more comfortable to use than the HTC One Max.

With its nearly 10 hours of battery life, big and bright screen, sharp camera and powerful software, the Galaxy Note 3 is the ultimate high-end smartphone. Consumers looking for a smaller device on Verizon should consider the 5-inch Galaxy S4, 4.7-inch HTC One or the 4-inch iPhone 5s. Those looking for lower rates should consider T-Mobile or Sprint, which have smaller LTE footprints but charge a lot less per month.

Samsung Galaxy Note 3: Once, twice, three times - a Very Large Phone™

Impressive though it undoubtedly is, the new Note 3 doesn't eclipse the Sony Xperia Z Ultra. The Ultra’s screen is larger and more natural in hue; Sony’s tweaked version of Android is a darned sight less confusing than Samsung’s; the bespoke Sony media apps are better if only by a small margin; and the battery life seemed better. And of course it’s waterproof.

If you are in the market to pick up a large screen smartphone (larger than 5.5-inches) with some impressive specifications and a lot of preloaded apps and features, the Galaxy Note 3 is a very good pick, especially if you're enamoured by the apps and potential of the S-Pen. However, if all you're looking for is a large display, then we would advise you pick up the Sony Xperia Z Ultra. The LG Optimus G Pro is another alternative worth considering, if the above two don't entice you. Both the G Pro and the Z Ultra pack some impressive hardware with the Z Ultra boasting of weather-proof capabilities as well.

However, you’ll have to contend with the extra applications and features that the company bundled with the Note 3. You must manually turn off features like Smart scroll when they’re not in use if you want to preserve battery life (and, possibly, your sanity), and you must ignore the fact that Samsung’s less-superior S-Voice is the default personal digital assistant. In exchange, you’ll have a powerhouse phone designed for multitaskers, with a quad-core processor, forward-thinking video-recording abilities, and battery life sufficient to get you through long, ardous days. In essence, that’s really what we’ve come to expect from our phones in this day and age, even if they don’t quite fit in our back pocket.

The real question with a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is whether you think it’s more convenient to carry a phone or tablet or a combination of the two. As tablet/phone hybrids go, the Samsung Galaxy note 3 is hard to beat. The screen is gorgeous, the processor means it’s mighty fast and the camera is excellent – especially the 4K video recording. Battery life is more than decent and the features offered by the S pen stylus are neat. And the handwriting recognition is good.

To use a term of phrase borrowed from that other mobile giant, this is Samsung's best Note yet. It's better in pretty much every way, with the possible exception of that speaker. The display is bigger, but it never makes the device feel inflated, which is some sort of dark magic in its own right.

Sony Xperia Z1 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 3 smartphone comparison review - which is the best Android phone?
Source: PC Advisor English
It's a close run thing, and we'd recommend you handle both of these handsets before you buy. The Note 3 is the better performer, but we're talking about a level of performance on both phones which is more than adequate for everything you need to do. It has a bigger, more colourful screen - but not everyone wants a huge screen and the Xperia Z1 has a sharper display anyway. Camera wise we'd err toward the Z1, but neither is earth-shatteringly good. And battery life is about even, albeit with the Z1 again marginally on top. They run similar software similarly well, and although only the Z1 is waterproof, they are both built to last. You pays your money you takes your chance. Two great phones that show how far Android has come.

The Galaxy Note 3 is very much an evolution, with the specs starting to top out. The 3GB of RAM, the 13MP camera and octa-core processor are all nice additions, as well as things like superfast 4G on board. It's excellent sonically, can display superbly crisp images, and has a number of tweaks to the camera that mean it can take decent snaps. Those are the things we want to judge the Note 3 on, not the ability to click the S Pen in a different manner. We're not sold on the design of the back, nor the high price - but there still seems to be an appetite for the Note range, so perhaps this is just the handset Samsung needs.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, 2014 Edition

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, 2014 Edition is the latest installment of Samsung’s popular Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet. Focusing on design, the screen size is 10.1 inches and Samsung has updated the exterior with sharper edges and a more slim line look. The rear panel is made from faux leather with faux stitching. The overall button layout is familiar with the large middle home button being in between the touch sensitive back and menu buttons. The speakers have been moved to the sides of the device instead of the previous forward facing position.

The Wifi/3G version comes with 1.9 GHz Quad + 1.3GHz Quad chipset and the LTE version is shipped with the 2.3 GHz Quad chipset. Both versions come with 3 GB RAM and internal memory of 16 GB, 32 GB or 64 GB; with the ability to support microSD up to 64GB. The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, 2014 Edition comes with an 8MP rear camera with LED flash and 2-megapixel front facing camera. The battery capacity is a whopping 8.220 mAh and powers the Android 4.3 (JB) operating system.

The S Pen has been improved with the advanced hover-over feature which allows the quick shortcut menu to pop up with the press of the stylus button. Handwriting recognition has also been enhanced making it brilliant to use on the device. Samsung has definitely improved the initial Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 making the 2014 Edition a strong upgrade.

Update Craze. Samsung has been bringing "updated" devices to the market as often as possible. The new Galaxy Note 10.1 from 2012 is now succeeded by the "Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition". The hardware is the latest on the market but can it, and the software, secure the top spot in the market?

It’s expensive for an Android tablet, but it’s more fully featured than both the Amazon Kindle HDX and the Nexus 10 and is the strongest all-round rival to the iPad Air. Our preference still lies with the iPad Air for its more appealing design, superior tablet-specific apps and faster performance, but Samsung is steadily closing the gap.

Of course, it could be too late by then, as the inexorable tablet tide continues to wash dreamy Droid devices onto our shores with blink-and-you’ll-miss-it regularity, but the potential is there. In fact, we’d say this is Samsung’s best tablet yet. It's just a shame that that's still not quite good enough to dethrone the mighty iPad.

Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet vs iPad Air vs Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014): the weigh-in
Source: Stuff TV English
On paper, the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet beats its rivals across most of our categories, but that battery life is a niggling concern; will it be enough to make best use of its features? For the time being, Apple's iPad Air is still comfortably ensconced in the top spot on our Top 10 Tablets list. But we foresee the latest Sony tablet giving it a run for its money. Check back for our full review of the Xperia Z2, and our updated showdown.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition is a top-quality tablet. It's as fast as a Kindle Fire HDX, has a good screen, decent great battery life, stylus support and expandable memory, along with infrared, universal remote-control support. It's expensive for an Android tablet: at £399, this tablet is £70 more expensive than both the Amazon Kindle HDX 8.9in and Nexus 10. It's more fully featured than both, however, and the strongest all-round rival to the iPad Air in the larger-tablet sector yet. Our preference still lies with the iPad Air for its more appealing design, superior tablet-specific apps and faster performance, but Samsung is steadily closing the gap.

80% Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014) review: the 10-inch high-end Samsung tablet gets a little makeover
Source: PC Advisor English
This latest Samsung offering joins the esteemed ranks of the Note series, which has been largely responsible for the phablet craze of the past two years. The main thing that distinguishes this 10in tablet from its brethren Galaxy Tab 10.1 is the inclusion of the S-Pen stylus and accompanying software. To save you losing the S-Pen Samsung has included a neat slot in the upper right hand side of the case. You might think this would result in a thick, or at least bulbous, device but the Note 10.1 is decidedly slim in the hands. It's reasonably light too thanks in part to the predominantly plastic construction. Take a look at Best Android tablets.

So back to the important question - is the Note 10.1 better than the iPad Air? It’s good, but it’s not quite an iPad killer. The 2014 Note offers smooth performance and is the better device if note taking is a priority. But the iPad Air has 475,000 apps build specifically for its large screen, a better screen and superior battery life.

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition video review: one of the best 10 Android tablets around
Source: PC Advisor English
Aside from the Touchwiz interface and fake stitching, the Note 10.1 is a very good tablet. It doesn’t feel as premium, nor look as classy as the iPad Air. The other problem is that the Note is £50 more expensive than the equivalent iPad Air, but the S-Pen is a genuine benefit for those who want it.

Samsung's tablets get classier and better each time. The Note 10.1 2014 edition is excellent. It's effective, well-built and has a gorgeous screen. It's well-sized, light enough to manage and the S Pen stylus is a very well executed addition. It's not cheap, and there are plenty of alternatives that are almost as good as the Note and will save you money. Still, this is a fine and appealing tablet with lots of features and a great processor running it all at speed.

80% The Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014) is the Swiss Army Knife of tablets
Source: Techradar English
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 is a bit of a Swiss Army Knife, in that it offers a slightly compromised tool for almost every job you could imagine. If you demand supreme flexibility from your full-size tablet above all else, then the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 is pretty tough to beat. Not only is it light and powerful, but the S Pen will prove extremely useful to those who still struggle to be truly productive on a finger-operated touchscreen. However, if you're a couch surfer or a more general tablet user, Samsung's somewhat undesirable hardware design and overly fussy software mean that the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 lags quite far behind the likes of the iPad Air and even the Nexus 10.

The exterior and design of the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition is superb. The leather-like rear backing adds a nice touch to an industry that's in dire need of design innovation. The 2560x1600 Super Clear LCD is perhaps the most gorgeous display in the tablet universe, and the 8MP rear camera is probably the most accomplished that you'll find on any slate today.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 3 2014 Edition is an excellent upgrade to the first generation even if it shares some of the same problems at release as it’s predecessor. This is a premium tablet at a premium price that’s worth it if you’re looking for a great pen-enabled tablet. If you don’t intend to use the S Pen, the Note isn’t significantly more exciting than the Sony Xperia Tablet Z (currently $420 on Amazon).

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 is a good tablet that will stick on our list of Android tablets that deserve serious consideration because of its well-implemented stylus.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition picks up exactly where last year's model left off, making key upgrades to the display and internal components, while building on its core stylus and multitasking features. But for all its upgrades, this year's Note 10.1 feels rougher around the edges, and the frequent app crashes were a source of frustration. Fortunately, though, the bugs and app compatibility are things that can be fixed with time via software updates, which Samsung has been better about as of late. One key sticking point this year will be price—at $550 for the base 16GB model, the Note 10.1 is now more expensive than the $500 Apple iPad, which is still king when it comes to tablet apps. The iPad, however, can't match the Note 10.1's multitasking or pressure sensitive stylus, and those are two features that genuinely change how useful a tablet can be. It's also worth mentioning that Apple is expected to release a new iPad in the coming weeks. We don't have any details on pricing or features, but it will likely be a strong contender.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.2 2014 Edition takes the concept of the Galaxy Note series and gives it just as fine a quality as the newest Galaxy Note handset in a full-sized tablet edition. It’s as simple as that. With a display that’s bright enough, color accurate enough, and sharp enough to keep up with and out-do the competition here in 2013, this machine does more than just make us excited about what’s waiting in 2014′s crop of slates. Samsung sets the benchmark for fine quality and unique abilities with the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition, and with the Exynos 5 Octa processor under the hood, it’ll be ready to roll with the most powerful apps for many moons, as well.

60% Galaxy Note 10.1 review: It takes more than high-end specs to make a great tablet
Source: TechHive.com English
Android tablets still have a long way to go before they can match the experience provided by Apple's slates. The 2014 Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 has improved specs over its predecessor, but the random slowdowns and overabundance of Samsung software make it hard to recommend over Google's new Nexus 7. If you're craving a tablet with a larger screen and can't do without the stylus, you might be better served to pick up an iPad and spend some extra cash on a dedicated Bluetooth pen instead.

This year's version of the Galaxy Note 10.1 is a tad more expensive than its predecessor, but is it worth the $550 for the baseline model? In terms of hardware, there's no doubt that Samsung has massaged all of the sore spots from the first Note 10.1: it's thinner and lighter; it offers a gorgeous display and top-notch sound; it packs better specs; and it sports a cleaner design.

And in six months time, this could be a five-star tab. Improvements to the day-to-day performance are vital, and those could be implemented through firmware. A stampede of creative tablet apps onto Google Play would help a great deal, too.

The Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 edition) costs a lot of money. And if you haven't already balked at the price tag, then what this gets you is pretty much the fastest Android tablet out there, with an excellent display to spice things up further. But equally, what you get is an overload of features that you may or may not use.

Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2

The Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is designed for the "prosumer" with extensive productivity and multitasking being the focus. It has a stunning 12.2" WQXGA display with plenty of real estate. The Enhanced Multi Window feature splits the screen in four different ways for seamless multitasking.

While the LTE model uses a Snapdragon 800, 2.3 GHz Quad-Core, the 3G model features an Exynos 5 Octa-Core (1.9GHz Quad + 1.3GHz Quad). Both models come with 3 GB RAM, a choice of 32 GB or 64 GB depending on the region and the capability to support micro SD up to 64 GB. The device is fitted with an 8 MP rear and a 2 MP front camera. Other hardware features include USB 3.0, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS+GLONASS. The entire setup is powered with a 9500 mAh battery giving it plenty of juice. The LTE model weighs 735 g and the 3G model weighs 750g and comes in two colors, black or white.

The S Pen is improved with the hover shortcut function found on all latest Note series devices. Handwriting recognition is also enhanced which makes it a delight to use on such a big screen. The device also introduces a new application called Remote PC. This allows the user to remotely access a PC or Mac directly from the tablet. The Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 runs on Android 4.4.2 (KitKat), is definitely well-built, and will satisfy users looking for a larger screen to work on.

Surface Pro 3 vs Galaxy NotePro 12.2 comparison: two powerful 12in tablets but only one will replace your laptop
Source: PC Advisor English
Overall, both the Surface Pro 3 and Galaxy NotePro 12.2 are impressive tablets that offer stunning, big, bright and colourful displays. They're both ideal for multi-tasking – running more than one app simultaneously, side by side – though you won't be able to run powerful desktop apps like Photoshop on the Android tablet like you can on the Surface. If you're simply looking for a tablet with an enormous display, you'll probably find you're better off with the NotePro 12.2, but for a device that could potentially replace your laptop completely, it's the mid- to high-range Surface Pro 3 models you're after.

The Samsung Galaxy NotePro 12.2 is a seriously impressive tablet that blows away the vast majority of Android tablets and leaves them eating its dust in terms of power.

Samsung's thumb-achingly ENORMO Galaxy Note Pro 12.2
Source: Reg Hardware English
At around £650, the Note Pro is not a cheap device. Sony’s new Xperia Z2 10-inch tablet costs £250 less though, to be fair, the more comparable Tab Pro 12.2 can be yours for around £550. Still, you do get an awful lot of tablet for your money and the long battery life will be an appealing feature if you are a dedicated slab fondler. Moreover, the pre-loaded business software could find favour among corporates types or those fated to BYOD.

70% Samsung Galaxy NotePro 12.2 review: a 12-inch powerhouse of a tablet that's too big for it's own good
Source: PC Advisor English
The Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is a tablet that is pretty much on its own in the Android market, that said it appears very well built and packed full of interesting software. It’s not a tablet that we can recommend for the average user, but if there is much of a market out there for powerful big screened tablets then the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is going to be leading the charge.

In fact some convertible Ultrabooks, which offer a balance of tablet and laptop features, cost even less than the Note Pro, such as Lenovo's Ideapad Yoga 13, which comes with an Intel Core i5 CPU, 4GB of RAM, a 128GB SSD and 13.3-inch 1600x900 screen. So as much as we want to like the Galaxy Note Pro, we really can't see any reason to be excited by it. Perhaps its near twin, the Galaxy Tab Pro, will offer better value for money, but we can't help but feel that as far as Android tablet sizes go, 12.2 inches is well past the point of diminishing returns.

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. However, the big screen size may be an issue for some users, and I am not really sure why the same could not have been replicated with the same screen size as the one on the fantastic Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet.

67% Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 review
Source: PC Pro English
The NotePRO 12.2 is aimed at a professional market (it's too heavy to compete with other consumer-focused tablets), and there are undoubtedly business scenarios where a larger-screened tablet makes sense, particularly with a pressure-sensitive stylus. That's not to say the Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 isn't a fabulous piece of hardware. We love the screen, we love the S Pen, we love its general performance (although not the responsiveness of the new UI elements), and we like the design. If you're looking for a versatile tablet-style device for business, however, this isn't the one we'd recommend. Save up a little longer and go for a Microsoft Surface Pro 2 instead.

Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2: First impressions
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
What's nice about the NotePRO is its compatibility with Android phones and Google services. You'll have to weigh whether that's more important than running Windows software and whether all that is worth the $750 price. And keep in mind that compared with Apple's iOS system, Android still doesn't have as many apps specifically designed for the tablet's screen size. Many tablet apps are simply larger versions of phone apps. The iPad is also cheaper, starting at $499, though the base model comes with half the storage available in the NotePRO's $750 model.

Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 vs Surface Pro 2 head to head review
Source: V3.co.uk English
However, for us here at V3, the Surface Pro 2 beats the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 in a few key areas. Reviewed as a purely business tablet, the Surface Pro 2 features an admittedly less pretty, but more functional design and superior performance. Thanks to the use of Windows 8.1, the Surface Pro 2 also features a more robust portfolio of business and productivity focused services. By comparison, while cheaper and still very enterprise friendly, the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2's victories tended to be more consumer focused. That said, for those interested in a device for work and play the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2's display and superior battery mean it will be better for certain consumer purposes, like media consumption.

We like the NotePro 12.2’s large screen, and its business-focused nature, but we think many people would be better off spending much less on the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014. The NotePro 12.2 can’t replace your laptop if you rely on MS Office or specific software, though, and the lack of a physical keyboard is another disadvantage when you can buy an Ultrabook for around the same price. We think the NotePro is too expensive at £700, especially when tablets are still an uncommon sight in the workplace.

80% Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 review Samsung throws everything into the fledgling maxi-tablet category
Source: Techradar English
As the first significant manufacturer to step forward with its vision of a super-sized tablet, Samsung has quite a job on its hands to convince the world that there is a genuine need, and that this isn't just a gimmick. If nothing else, the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 successfully answers that question to the affirmative. It's not a tablet you'll want to lug around with you or whip out in public, and it is dauntingly expensive. But if productivity is foremost in your mind as you shop for an Android tablet, the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2's combination of huge HD display and S Pen interactivity is a compelling combination.

Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 deep-dive review: Almost a laptop replacement
Source: Computerworld.com English
All this doesn't come cheap: If you want the Wi-Fi-only versions, you need to be willing to shell out $750 for the 32GB model or $850 for the 64GB model. If you also purchase the keyboard, mouse and cover that I used at MWC, it can add up to $170 more. At that point, you might be asking yourself: Why didn't I get a Chromebook for $320? Samsung is known for offering many different models of the various devices it makes and already has a range of tablet screen sizes -- it has now added a 12.2-in form factor. The Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is powerful and capable, and could be valuable for many students and mobile workers if they can adjust to typing on a virtual screen or with a Bluetooth keyboard. If only it didn't come with such a high sales price.

80% Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 review: Excellent tablet, but no notebook replacement
Source: Zdnet.com English
At the start of this review we said the Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 offers a glimpse of a future where tablet-based working is the norm. It's certainly the closest we've seen to a tablet that could see us through a working day without recourse to a notebook. But there's still a way to go. The bottom line is that, compelling though the Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 is, £649 (inc. VAT; £541 ex. VAT) will buy you a well-appointed notebook that offers more capability for the average mobile professional.

Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2: Don’t Ditch Your Laptop Just Yet
Source: Recode English
The Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 uses Samsung’s latest processor and, generally, performance was smooth. The tablet did become slightly sluggish when working in multiple apps. Battery life was solid. Though I didn’t do a formal battery test, the tablet lasted more than a day with moderate to heavy usage before needing to recharge. Despite the productivity features and extra-large screen, the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 can’t match the power of a laptop, and with its sky-high price tag, it’s hard to recommend even as a standalone tablet. You’re better off investing your money in one of the many affordable Windows 8 devices, or going for a less-clumsy tablet like the iPad Air or even the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition.

Surface Pro 2 versus Galaxy Note Pro: a productivity smackdown
Source: PC World English
With phones, tablets, phablets, and ultrabooks available in a staggering array of sizes and configurations, true road warriors can order up pretty much what they want. And that includes operating systems. I worked for a prolonged period on a Chromebox, just to see if it could be done, but in the end I returned to Windows. In the final analysis, if I were forced to spend my own money, I’d pick the slightly cheaper Note Pro. But if I could charge the bill to my company, I’d ask for the Surface Pro 2. But in the end, I mostly chose the Surface Pro 2 based on subjective preference, rather than any technical roadblocks on Android’s part. And that’s a flimsy ledge for Microsoft to cling to.

70% Samsung Galaxy Note Pro review: Android's bid to replace Windows in the office
Source: PC World English
Spending $750 for an Android tablet seems exorbitant. But the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro offers a larger screen, excellent battery life, and access to the Android and Samsung app stores. The sum of its parts—a large screen, excellent fantastic battery life, multi-app windows, and equivalent PC software—not only make the Note Pro a viable choice for a tablet enthusiast, but a jumping-off point for an adventuresome road warrior to leave the Windows world entirely. If only Samsung could knock another $150 or so off the price.

Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 review: a tablet that proves bigger isn't always better
Source: Engadget English
To me, the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is quintessential Samsung. It's emblematic of that spaghetti-to-the-wall approach we've seen the company indulge in time and again. I don't know that the Note Pro 12.2 needs to exist because I don't know that there's actually a niche hungry enough for this product.

With its big, high-res screen, octa-core processor, deeply integrated stylus and powerful office suite, the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is a strong choice for business users. However, the device feels bulky, and you'll need to spend more than the somewhat steep $749 price to add a keyboard. For that kind of money, we would hope to get a true clamshell-shaped hybrid, like the $799 Lenovo Yoga 13 or $650 ASUS Transformer Pad TF701T.

Or at least - not yet. What's it good for? Multi-tasking, viewing documents, conferencing and catching up with the news. What's it not so good for? Long stretches of typing, gaming and using in impromptu situations. The NotePRO 12.2 might not be perfect and it certainly isn't cheap, but in one or two iterations, this could be the go-to business tablet Samsung is aiming for. When it's lighter with a zippier interface and more apps compatible with its nifty features, it will be worth that steep price. The NotePRO 12.2 is a typically Samsung gamble and it largely pays off. Now, we've just got to find somewhere to put it...

Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 vs iPad Air head-to-head review
Source: V3.co.uk English
Even though the iPad Air scored an impressive five stars when we reviewed it on release last year, since then the market has moved on and having won four of our nine rounds to the iPad Air’s three, we’ve got to give the best enterprise tablet award out of these two devices to the Samsung Galaxy Note 12.2in. However, with two of the rounds resulting in draws the battle has been a close one and both tablets certainly have merit in the workplace. The Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 offers users a sizeable display, an array of productivity-focused applications and services, a robust battery life and a useful S Pen stylus. But to counter this, the iPad Air boasts a more travel-friendly design, more robust security and is significantly cheaper.

The Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is not a tablet suited for most people. It’s big, it’s relatively heavy and it’s quite expensive. However, this is an area without many rivals. If a 10.1-inch screen isn’t big enough and a pressure sensitive stylus is a must, this is actually a very successful tablet. The Samsung UI remains overwrought in places, but looks better than before and works pretty well on the big screen. And the S Pen works better than ever before thanks to the increased screen space.

Our general experience with the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 has been positive. While the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 does cost a hefty £650, it comes loaded with a number of key services and features that help justify it. On a hardware level, the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 features a decent screen, powerful processor and a decent battery life. Samsung's backed these impressive specs up with a number of security services and applications, such as S Note and Knox. The combination of top-end hardware and useful productivity and security-focused software make the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 one of the safest and most business-friendly tablets available.

Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 LTE (SM-P905)

The Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is designed for the "prosumer" with extensive productivity and multitasking being the focus. It has a stunning 12.2" WQXGA display with plenty of real estate. The Enhanced Multi Window feature splits the screen in four different ways for seamless multitasking.

While the LTE model uses a Snapdragon 800, 2.3 GHz Quad-Core, the 3G model features an Exynos 5 Octa-Core (1.9GHz Quad + 1.3GHz Quad). Both models come with 3 GB RAM, a choice of 32 GB or 64 GB depending on the region and the capability to support micro SD up to 64 GB. The device is fitted with an 8 MP rear and a 2 MP front camera. Other hardware features include USB 3.0, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS+GLONASS. The entire setup is powered with a 9500 mAh battery giving it plenty of juice. The LTE model weighs 735 g and the 3G model weighs 750g and comes in two colors, black or white.

The S Pen is improved with the hover shortcut function found on all latest Note series devices. Handwriting recognition is also enhanced which makes it a delight to use on such a big screen. The device also introduces a new application called Remote PC. This allows the user to remotely access a PC or Mac directly from the tablet. The Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 runs on Android 4.4.2 (KitKat), is definitely well-built, and will satisfy users looking for a larger screen to work on.

70% Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo review: An excellent, cheaper option if you’ve always wanted a Note 3
Source: Tech2.in.com English
The biggest issue with this phone currently is the unoptimised firmware and terrible lag, for which we recommend you hold off on your purchase till Samsung figures out how to fix it. The purple flicker on the display only happens on the homescreen and is something that doesn’t affect apps or video playback. If Samsung can sort this mess out with a KitKat update then we don’t see any reason why you shouldn’t buy the Note 3 Neo. It has excellent battery life, a capable camera, powerful CPU and GPU which can easily run the most demanding of games and a well-rounded set of features.

60% Review: Samsung GALAXY Note 3 Neo
Source: Techtree.com English
The Note 3 Neo (Rs 38,000) is a watered-down version of the original Note 3 (Rs 42,500). The Neo lacks the Note 3’s Full HD screen, 13 megapixel camera, and 3 GB RAM. If you like large screen phones with stylus, it makes sense to stretch your budget by 4.5k and purchase the Note 3. On the other hand, if you’re looking for a powerful handset, the GALAXY S5 is a much better deal for Rs 28,000. Long story short, there’s no point in buying the Note 3 Neo for its current price of 38,000.

All points considered; if you are looking for a sturdy phablet with a powerful stylus for note taking, a big, beautiful screen and great battery life, then look no further than the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo as it might just serve the purpose. But be warned, the performance of the Neo is middling for an expensive device. At the time of this review, online e-commerce websites were retailing it at approximately Rs. 36,500 whereas the Note 3 retails for Rs. 43,500. Give the elder sibling a serious thought before settling on the Neo. If you don't need the stylus and can live with a smaller screen, we would also suggest that you take a look at the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact and the LG G2, which perform better.

Is the new Note note perfect?
Source: Techradar English
It is big and it is clever: the Galaxy Note 4 looks to be Samsung's best Note yet, toning down the gimmick and adding real innovation to what is becoming one of the best phone ranges around. The biggest relief is that the software changes are innovations rather than annoying bloatware. Samsung does have a habit of adding gimmickry to its handsets but the big changes here are actually beneficial to how you use the Note.

Source: PC Advisor English
Arriving a good six months after the Samsung Galaxy S5, it's no surprise that the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has significantly faster hardware. It's important to note, however, that all flagship smartphones are now very fast, and the chances of the average user being able to tell the difference between them is minimal. However, what might sway you in the new Note's favour is its larger, higher-resolution screen and potentially longer battery life. Whether it sways you enough to part with an extra £200 over the S5 will depend on your budget.

Hands-on: Samsung Galaxy Note 4 review
Source: Pocket Lint English
When we were first shown the phone playing back a video on screen it was less the significant resolution and more the way the image "pops" from the screen that impressed - a feature derived from the 2.5D glass panel which, despite being flat in the hand, is ever so slightly curved within to deliver this effect. It's subtle, but unlike any phone we've seen before it.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 hands-on review

The Note 3 was a superb phone, spending many a week in our Smartphones Top 10, but the Note 4 has all the ingredients to surpass it. Its screen is bright, vibrant and sharp and its insides are some of the most powerful we've seen to date. Throw in an even better S Pen, a specced-up camera and an improved design, and there are plenty of reasons to be excited about Samsung's new gigantaphone.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 vs Galaxy Note Edge comparison review: Curved screen or not?
Source: PC Advisor English
Apart from some minor differences like storage and battery size, the Galaxy Note 4 and Galaxy Note Edge are separated by the curved screen feature. We don't think it's a gimmick but you need to decide whether it's worth paying an extra £100 for.

Samsung Galaxy Note Edge hands-on review: The Galaxy Note 4 with a curved screen
Source: PC Advisor English
The main reason to buy the Galaxy Note Edge over the Galaxy Note 4 is that curved screen on the side which we actually think it useful rather than a gimmick. However we don't know how much extra this will add to the price and we fear this will be one very expensive smartphone.

Hands-on: Samsung Galaxy Note Edge review: The Note 4 with curved screen edge in surprise Unpacked unveil
Source: Pocket Lint English
The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is certainly a spectacle. But we can't see it taking off as the next big thing. We think it's more about Samsung showing off just how darn clever it is. We'll give the company that, as it did bring a smile to the face, but it's the standard Note 4 that's really stolen the show.

The Edge has all the tasty specs and software tricks of the Note 4, with an unusual and eye-catching design thrown in for good measure. While the second screen's usefulness is debatable at this stage, it might be quirky enough to tempt users away from the standard Note 4. If the price is right that is.
