Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition Review And Specifications

Samsung has split its forces in 2 within the in progress pill war, with the entry-level Tab vary sitting below the premium Note vary. because the biggest device within the elite category, then, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 will arguably be seen as Samsung\'s new flagship pill.

That definitely seems to be the case after you examine its specs, too. another of these \'throw in everything however the room sink\' efforts that Samsung looks to favour.

If the pill war were to be judged on bullet points alone, few may get up to the new Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. however after all, that is not however it\'s done. It\'s selected look, feel, intuitiveness and seamless performance, and on these counts the Galaxy Note 10.1 still trails behind the iPad Air.

Front angle

That\'s to not say that this follow-up to last year\'s original Galaxy Note 10.1 is not a particularly sturdy pill. It\'s simply that the total is somewhat but the add of its components.

Some of the blame for this could be distributed to the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014\'s but stellar style. whereas it is a marked improvement over last year\'s chunky plastic model, it\'s still a deeply uninspiring pill to wield, and does not feel something like its £450 (around $740, AU$820) tag

Headphone corner

As you would possibly expect given the Note stigmatisation, Samsung has cursed  several of the planning cues from the superb Samsung Galaxy Note three. the difficulty is, a fascinating look and feel weren\'t specifically among that device\'s several sturdy points.

So, you get identical faux-metallic outer rim and same faux-leather back, that is much an excessive  fake for my feeling. The latter truly makes the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 feel lots grippier than its precursor, and  pill itself feels pretty solid within the hand. however the preponderant feeling is one in all of} cheapness.
Needless to mention, the distinction with the marginally cheaper iPad Air isn\'t a becoming one for Samsung\'s latest pill.


Still, the new Galaxy Note 10.1 has created style enhancements elsewhere. it is a good bit slimmer (7.9mm down from eight.9mm) and lighter (535g versus 597g) than its precursor and its facet bezels ar significantly dilutant.

This helps cut back that acquainted automaton pill attribute of feeling too stretched - particularly once control in portrait read.


Of course, nearly certainly|you most likely} will not be doing an entire ton of that. Samsung clearly in10ds you to use this life-size pill in landscape for multimedia system and internet browsing, as proved  by the orientation of the Samsung brand and {therefore the|and additionally the} positioning of its hardware keys.

These ar the by-now-familiar Samsung trio of a physical tonic key flanked by electrical phenomenon menu and back controls. The latter 2 light once in use.

The volume and power keys ar positioned sanely on the highest left-hand edge (when control in default landscape view), associate degreed ar straightforward enough to find once looking at a movie in a very poorly lit space, {for example|for instance|as associate degree example}. To the correct of those keys is associate degree IR LED, that permits you to use the pill as universal remote (more on it later).

Volume power

With the microUSB port settled on very cheap of the device, this leaves the left and right edges absolve to hold a speaker every, so providing true stereo - albeit slightly tinny - sound. The speakers\' wise position high on the device implies that can not} cowl them once holding the pill naturally, that could be a thoughtful bit that a stunning range of makers do not suppose to incorporate.

Just below the right-hand speaker is that the Galaxy Note 10.1\'s microSD slot, which allows up to 64GB of further storage - terribly handy once choosing the 16GB model that i {used to be} sent.

MicroSD, speaker

I\'ll proceed to debate the S Pen\'s usability later within the review, however from a style perspective it is a terribly solid, light-weight and useful however somewhat low cost and plasticky object. Rather just like the pill as an entire, you would possibly say.

Of course, the foremost necessary element of any pill is its screen, and during this department the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 is great. it is a sizable improvement over last year\'s model.

Samsung has boosted the resolution two-fold to try of},560 x 1,600, that is that the same resolution because the Google Nexus 10. Indeed, as Samsung engineered that pill, it\'s most likely identical show. Either way, it offers a equally spectacular image, with associate degree iPad-topping degree of sharpness at 299 ppi.
Overall, it\'s still maybe just about as balanced an image as you will find on a membrane display-sporting iPad, however it\'s totally pleasant to appear at all the same, and it definitely will vivacious HD con10t (such as movies and games) justice.
