Camera:

Nope, we're not at the very least sad to know this one is only brandishing a front-facing camera. To tell you the truth, if it helps to keep its price down, we'll tolerate the lack of a rear camera. Naturally, we can't have high expectations with the front-facing cam's quality, since it's pretty bare with the fine details and very grainy looking. Nevertheless, it's adequate for video chat, but not so much with self-portraits.

Multimedia:

Hello Windows 8 music player! By now people, it shouldn't surprise many to know it's the same old player we find on all other Windows 8 devices. Indeed, it relies heavily on the Windows 8 "Modern UI," but the audio quality from its two speakers is pathetic. Not only are they dinky with the power output, but some audible levels of strain and distortion are noticeable as well.

More than sufficient for watching videos, since its size is spacious and that there's a decent amount of luminosity, the Lynx's only major fault is found with higher resolution videos. On one side, it's great that there's a wide support for various video codecs, but 1080p videos are simply too taxing to play for this tablet. Well, 720p videos and below have no issues at all with playback.

unless you are an android fanboy, can you elaborate me what makes you think that choosing an iPad 4 is a joke? despite its stale OS, It has a stunning display, state of the art design and build quality with a good processor and battery back up. Its as worthy as nexus10 or any other android tablets.

well, thats a great choice. I have read that Surface's one helluva tablet. I am not against windows OS.My opinion was based on this review that this device struggles with poor performance. And thats just my opinion.

Nexus 10 is much cheaper than Ipad 4. It has a better resolution and better pixel density. It runs android. It has a better processor and better design (the speakers are amazing on the nexus 10)

Seriously guys, unless you really want the S-Pen there is no reason to buy a Note 10.1, it is one of the worst tablets out there IMO, i used one and it made strange noises when i was holding it from the plastic in the back, it is also strangely squeaky on the back. The iPad has a much better screen, build quality, more GPU power, and has a huge battery.

Unless you don't like iOS the iPad is without a doubt a better tablet than the Note 10.1. And this is coming from an Android fan.

Note 10.1 isnt the only android tablet on the market -.-
Nexus 10 is probably the best tablet at the moment. Highest resolution ever seen on a tab, fast processor, pure android jellybean, amazing build quality and much more

I'll choose the iPad, just for the design, great CPU and GPU, the display and un-laggy iOS. Dislike now... (sorry for my bad english)
