Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is Great Android for Student

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 black friday, I have waited a month before reviewing as I wanted to have plenty of time to wring it out. I am totally impressed with this tablet. Do not listen to others about "build quality". So what if it has a plastic back? It won't dent that way and it's plenty solid. I have no issues with that and I think the build quality is extremely good. This is my 3rd Android tablet and is by far the most useful. I admit, I did mainly get this for the S-pen and it's drawing capabilities. While that is outstanding, this is a very solid and productive tablet for the casual user to the business minded. All of the office type apps work flawlessly, wifi through my network and I can print documents, full Word, Powerpoint, Excel, etc. I use this thing all the time for my business and I don't leave the house without it. Now onto the drawing or S-pen portion. Once you get the hang of the program's available for this, it's a blast to use!! I have always liked drawing and doodling and this just works. My fav app so far is the Sketchbook PRO version. The Photoshop app works well too but I'm really still learning how to use that. I love the fact that I can whip this out and start taking notes if needed for a meeting, do voice record, draw up a quick display or graph. Fantastic. I use this a lot as well for Netflix and other media consumption apps and that works fantastic as well. I have read a lot about the people having issues with the screen. NO, it's not the highest resolution out there but it does work and it's beautiful. The reason this does not have the latest and greatest screen resolution is due to the WACOM portion not being compatible for that high of resolution. that's what I am told anyway. If you MUST have the best screen, you may not want this however, I don't see how anyone can have a problem with it. Did I mention this thing is a speed demon??? After a month, not a stutter, shudder, or squint out of it. It takes all the apps, movies, music, docs I can throw at it and it doesn't miss a beat. Very impressed with that after previous Android tabs. By the way, I am coming from a Toshiba Thrive 16GB and a Kindle Fire.

, In summation, if you are looking for a tab that you can actually be productive at and get office type of work done, this is it. It's great at media consumption but any tablet can do that. This thing is actually USEFUL!! Build quality, excellent, screen, excellent, processor, excellent. And the speakers in FRONT??? Genious!! This is actually too loud sometimes depending on your surroundings. WHY no one puts the speakers on the front is beyond me. Makes total sense. Once you get the hang of the S-pen, it's awesome and no gimmick. Very useful tool and the S-pen feels great in the hand---with the one exception of how you hold it. It will take random screen shots if you don't keep that button on it from under your finger. Just get used to not putting it under your finger and it's fine. A++ tablet and I personally think it's the best on the market at this time. Don't hestitate if you are on the fence, just GO GET IT!! You will be impressed. Way to go Samsung

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 black friday, There are enough reviews dealing with specs and benchmarks, I will only offer my opinion having owned other tablets. This tablet it amazing, it is fast and can really multitask. The Stylus is the key, it is accurate and smooth. Writing with the stylus is like writing with a pen, there is so much potential for software developers with this device. The S apps are user friendly, multiscreen is a very nice feature as well as the floating apps. I have used the photoshop app that is preinstalled, it is similar to the photoshop for PC/MAC just not as robust, having this top level tool on a tablet really takes it to the next level of functionality. The line between tablet and laptop is narrowing with the Galaxy Note. Between the unique software and powerful processor the other players in the market are going to have to step up their game.

I bought Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 black friday this tablet for the quad core 1.4 processor and GPU, and the specs altogether, but it was the S Note application together with S Pen that inclined me to the write this glowing review. Let me start by saying I had low expectations for the S Note app. I expected a half-assed branded app, put out to brag about as a feature. What Samsung has delivered here is instead something that can rival LaTex in final product: Neat, orderly notes. Never mind the smooth, accurate, and responsive pen input, this tablet comes loaded with a pretty accurate function input tool, a shapes tool, and a writing-to-type input feature in it's productivity tools. Hand write and equation as the professor spews his dirty intellectual filth on his white board, and I jot it down, poorly, and Samsung picks up the slack by turning into a neat formula. I hit "insert", size the object down a la MS word, and move it with a drag gesture to place it where I wish. The take away here is this: If you're a student, don't buy and iPad, buy one of these. If you're a writer or an engineer or anyone who actually wants neat documents made on the fly WITH YOUR HAND, pick one of these up. The iPad just can't compete for productivity. And if you're on the Microsoft side of things with your tablet preference, good news: Samsung owns the stylus tech, the algorithms, and the app, so expect to see a Win RT S Note released on their Win 8 surface products. That said, the way they pull of android on this tablet, it's quite capable without x86! I have to mention that this machine is pretty powerful.
