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
Source: Techradar English Archive.org version
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.

12.20":

This range of display format is largely the upper limit for tablets and the lower limit for subnotebooks.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small in size and therefore easily portable. The tiny display has the added advantage of requiring little power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is exhausting for the eyes. High resolutions, which one is used to from a standard laptop, are almost not usable.

The same applies to tablets in this size range.
