The 2014 Edition of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is a feature-filled tablet, but only power users will probably have the patience to unleash its true potential. - Stewart Wolpin, Mashable

The 2014 Edition of the Galaxy Note 10.1 is more than a simple upgrade from its predecessor of the same name; it is a complete overhaul and the device is better for it. While the Tab series is firmly mid-tier, the new Note 10.1 aims to rule the new tablet market. With 3GB of RAM, a quad- or octa-core processor, up to 64GB of internal storage, support for microSD cards and a stunning 2560-by-1600 resolution Super Clear LCD display, the device leads the spec roundups of most current tablets. Alex Dobie of AndroidCentral says “even if you’re not going to use the S Pen all the time, the new Galaxy Note 10.1 looks to be a strong Android tablet offering in the large form factor space.”

The list of features doesn’t stop there. S-Pen, Air Command, 1080p video recording, 4g LTE Cat4 support, GPS+Glonass, an 8-megapixel rear camera, front-facing 2-megapixel camera dual-band N and AC wireless support and infrared ports round out the offerings. If there is a feature available, Samsung has made sure the new Note 10.1 supports it. While these features might seem like a bit of overkill, Samsung’s use of TouchWiz and Android 4.3 make it easy to access new features and push the productivity of your tablet. A massive 8,220-mAh battery, even with the high-resolution display, offers more than enough power for a full day’s use.

One of the best examples comes from the ability to display multiple apps at once. Options include splitting the screen with two apps or drawing windows with the S-Pen for windowed access to a variety of apps, including YouTube, a calculator and more. When in landscape mode, capacitive buttons at the bottom of the display help make switching between apps and launching features a snap. Sascha Segan of PC Magazine notes “Multitasking has really blossomed as well, boosted by a fast processor (a 1.9GHz octa-core on the WiFi version, a 2.3GHz quad-core on the LTE models).”

When it comes to device design and materials, Samsung appears to be moving away from the pure plastic design in a few areas. The back of the device features a grippy faux-leather texture and chrome-color accents around the side add some additional styling as well. Brad Molen of Engadget says “While this likely doesn't add anything to the tab's overall durability, it at least exudes more of a ‘classy’ look -- though it isn't a perfect solution to a lengthy build quality concern, we at least prefer this over the previous model's glossy plastic, which loved fingerprints more than life itself.”

The Good: Cutting-edge hardware, beautiful display, S-Pen input, great battery life and a bounty multitasking features.

The Bad: Still plenty of plastic to be found, hardware button in portrait orientation is awkward, S-Pen can be a little difficult to retrieve and redundant pre-installed apps waste storage space.

A do-it-all tablet with a gloriously hi-res screen

from Stuff (about 1 month ago)

The Note 10.1 2014 can do everything you want a tablet to do - plus ten other impossible things you’re not sure you needed it to. More clever than an iPad, with a better screen than nearly every other Android tablet and with microSD expandability, this is a lean, mean full-sized tablet from Samsung.... More

The 10-inch high-end Samsung tablet gets a little makeover

from PC Advisor (3 months ago)

Touchwiz and fake stitching aside the Note 10.1 is a very good tablet with the added S-Pen feature for those who want it.

Innovative multitasking functions with attractive and easy-to-use design

from Know Your Mobile (3 months ago)

Successfully translates all that was good about the Note 3 into the larger tablet design. A really great tablet with fantastic stylus and multitasking capabilities, however, Exynos chip lacks punch.

Largely fast, reliable performance but too expensive

from What Hi-Fi (3 months ago)

After falling short in the tablet market for a while now, Samsung has finally produced a tablet that could well prove a genuine Android alternative to the iPad – though its premium price may prove the first stumbling block. It still can’t match its Apple competitor for video or audio prowess... More

Great screen, improved design, and decent camera

from TechRadar (4 months ago)

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... More

True multitasking with excellent screen

from Digital Versus (4 months ago)

The Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition is a good successor to the 2012 model, although it's somewhat marred by lags, perfectible battery life and humdrum graphics capabilities. That said, it has an excellent display and great uses for the stylus. It's a choice buy for anyone looking for a tablet version of... More

Sub-par overall experience on the device

from Phonedog (5 months ago)

The Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) is a device that looks great on paper, and it even carries that over to the device itself. The changes that Samsung made to the physical design of the tablet are welcomed changes, and it's a lightweight tablet that's easy and comfortable to hold even for long periods... More

Only consider it if budget is no concern.

from Mobile Syrup (5 months ago)

Samsung has crafted what appears to be the best 10-inch Android tablet experience on the market right now. The S Pen features that were useful on the Note 3 are essential here, and the Note 10.1 should be considered by anyone who needs pressure-sensitive pen input. At $599, it’s cheaper than the... More

It’s powerful, with a great screen and a huge collection of apps

from Expert Reviews (5 months ago)

It’s powerful, with a great screen and a huge collection of apps, but the only reason to buy the Galaxy Note 10.1 over its rivals is for the stylus. Unless you specifically want a pressure-sensitive pen for handwriting and graphic design, the Kobo Arc 10HD has slightly faster internals and the... More

Expensive, but you definitely get everything you pay for

from TabletPCReview (5 months ago)

While the Note 10.1 2014 has some small foibles, on the whole it's an extremely well-designed, well-engineered, and well-built device. It's intended by Samsung as an iPad competitor, and that's exactly what it is: an very high-specced device, with a lot of extra features which are, on the whole, very... More
