Hope they bring a better tw ui.
It's the most functional and like it or not it actually has more features than all the other os/ui combined..

Yes but they wrap it up in an ugly interference. And Samsung is still a slight step behind other OEMs when it comes to a lag-free experience. They need to optimize Touchwiz better.

These tablets use the new Magazine UX UI and not TW UI.

I don't notice any lag with my S3 or Note 10.1 (2012 model) seems silky smoth to me. Even if there is some slight lag that i can't notice I would gladly use it over other useless phones or tablets. For me multi window along with cascade windows a must have feature or otherwise I don't need it and I do like my S pen. I am not a Samsung fanboy but I do like their highly functional products. I would not consider anything else at this point. I may upgrade to Note 3 soon but my Note 10.1 is serving my needs very well and I have don't have a huge need to upgrade yet. I like the new model but i prefer my soft onscreen buttons over physical ones. That's sort of holding me back for now.
