I have been using this tablet for the past 4 months and has fallen in love with it.Samsung has done a great job with this tablet .With the S-Pen , the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet(now onward referred as SGN) increases the productivity of the device by a huge margin compared to other devices in the market.
Unlike previous Samsung devices whose back was made of plastic , the SGN has the same leather finish as seen on Samsung Note 3, which makes it more appealing than other Samsung tablets.The device is only 7.9mm thick and weighs only 470g ,making the device extremely portable.
The 10.1 inch screen with a pixel density of 299ppi , makes it great for web surfing and reading e-books.
The S-Pen ,along with the S-Note makes the device a substitute for note books.For those out there who wants a tablet to take notes during lectures ,this is the device for you.The Muli -Tab option also enhances the productivity of this device.
The only flaw i found in this device was the placement of the 3 buttons in the front.When using the device in portrait mode ,as the buttons are fixed on the panel , its difficult to navigate.Also their is a lag when changing from one viewing mode to another.
With it's amazing screen and productive stylus options makes this device a keeper.
