Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) Review
Even though this new tablet gets a higher capacity 8220 mAh battery, up from the 7000 mAh one from before, we don’t see a huge leap with its performance, as we get roughly 1.5 days of juice with our normal usage.


Conclusion


Now this is somewhat interesting, seeing that there’s a peculiar difference between Samsung’s set of Android tablets. On one hand, the Tab series is now regarded as Sammy’s entry-level tablet offering, and on the other, the Note series is now occupying the upper end of the spectrum. Needless to say, the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition is getting the recognition it so happily deserves, which wasn’t something we can say with its predecessor.

Easily separating itself from the other stuff in Sammy’s tablet stable, this new Note 10.1 is deserving of all the upgrades it’s packing along – making it a strong competitor in the landscape! Higher resolution screen, check. Speedy performance thanks to its updated processor, check. New S Pen features, check-check!

With a starting price point of $550 for the 16GB Wi-Fi version, the pricing is undoubtedly a tad bit higher than some of its competitors, but we have to remind ourselves that it’s armed with the unique features of its S Pen – something that we don’t see too often with Android tablets. If the money isn’t a concern, the 2014 Edition of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is a great fit, but if you’re still looking out for savings, we’d recommend checking out the cheaper Google Nexus 10.
