It's Big. I mean Big.

I've owned an og Note (AT&T), a Note 2 (Verizon) and a Note 3 (Verizon) is my current EDC. I like my hardware big, not because size is a virtue of itself, but because bigger screens are easier to see, and when you're north of fifty, that matters.
Everything about this tablet is super-sized, but unlike the fast food chain that phrase invokes, with no compromise in quality. I have the Verizon version of this tablet, and while the carrier made some compromises in functionality by not allowing the tablet to function as a phone, it is a minor point for me.
Processor and RAM are the best you can get for it's release date. If the interface experiences the occasional drag, it is because of the inefficiency of the TouchWiz shell and not for any lack of muscle under the hood.
The screen is a marvel. You'll have to be a very sharp-eyed wipper-snapper to see the pixels without putting a nose-print on the glass. The LCD technology is plenty vivid and enjoyable to gaze at. At full bright, this tablet is very bright.
I expected the weight to be up there, and it is. It's heavier than I expected, but there's a reason, and I think that reason is a worthy compromise. I believe the weight comes from the big battery, and that is one place I think you should invest your ounces. The battery is amazing, and lasts longer than any other tablet I've owned or heard about.
When you buy top-line tech, you're always making a choice. Do you want the gizmo that looks the best and earns the most envious...Build quality 9/10Reception 9/10Call quality 9/10Internet 9/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 8/10UI speed 9/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 9/10Display 10/10Battery 10/10

replaces my notebooks completely.
Good display. With Wifi and data network connection, it is ideal note taking mate for me.
S Note is too primitive. Samsung shall try to provide a now taking software like one note but local storage version.Build quality 10/10Reception 9/10Call quality 9/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 9/10Camera 9/10UI speed 10/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 8/10

NotePro wins my vote

Have had this tablet for about three months. I'm extremely pleased with the responsiveness, and the S-pen capability. Love it, and much better than carrying around pen and paper. So organized. Calendar function seamlessly integrates with maps and contacts and lets me know when I need to leave my house based on current traffic. What's not to love?Build quality 10/10Reception 10/10Call quality 10/10Internet 10/10Multimedia 10/10Camera 10/10UI speed 8/10Everyday usage 10/10Text input 10/10Display 10/10Battery 10/10

- S-Pen improved functionality

- s-pen is so small it's sometimes hard to use
