On the other hand, if you are a business professional that constantly uses their device for multitasking, then the price tag may be worth it. Especially when it comes to processing power, access to business applications, security, and performance. Samsung has designed this device with the professional in mind. If anything, it is worth taking a test drive as it will probably prove to serve you well over the long term.

80% A big tablet with a big price tag

If you're looking for a super-sized tablet your options are fairly limited, yet Samsung offers up two with the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 being joined by the incredibly similar Note Pro 12.2. The latter has the advantage of the S Pen stylus which is useful on screens this size, yet the Tab Pro 12.2 makes do without and it fails to really excite. Yes it has a big screen and a whole lot of power, but build quality could be better and the sheer size of the Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 makes it a little cumbersome to hold.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 is not a tablet for everyone. Indeed, I have trouble believing it's a tablet for anyone given its screen issues, lack of stylus and relatively high £550 price. However, we'll look into its real-world uses in our full review.

Its pressure sensitive tip offers enough resistance to let us accurately doodle away and the handwriting recognition is just as good, turning the Note Pro 12.2 into a genuinely useful creativity tool - as opposed to a pure consumption device, which is the category most tablets tend to fall into.

ARM Mali-T628 MP6: OpenGL ES 3.0 capable graphics card for smartphones and tablets (e.g. included in the Exynos 5420 and 5422 with 6 cores).

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


5420 Octa:

Exynos 5 SoC with four Cortex-A15 cores, four Cortex-A7 cores and an ARM Mali-T628 MP6 GPU. Successor to the Exynos 5410.

12.2":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

0.75 kg:

This weight is typical for small tablets.


Samsung: The Samsung Group is composed of numerous international businesses, all united under the Samsung brand in South Korea. The meaning of the Korean word Samsung is "tristar" or "three stars". The Samsung brand is one of the most important brands of South Korea. Samsung is an international notebook manufacturer of medium size according market shares and reviews.

In 2015 and 2016, Samsung had a market share of around 24-25% in the global smartphone market and was undisputed market leader. In the laptop sector, Samsung is on the 8th place in the global manufacturer rankings from 2014-2016 with 1.7-2.7%.

 

In 2016 Samsung slipped into a crisis due to exploding smartphone batteries and a failed recall action.


87.5%: This is a good rating above average. Nevertheless you should not forget, that 10-15% of all notebook-models get a better rating.
