Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014) Review

32 GB Score: 7.92/10

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014) is a great Android device released a few years ago, provisioned with a big size 10.1 inches multi-touch screen, a high performance Quad-Core CPU speeding at 2300 MHz, and two cameras, an 8 MP back-facing camera and a 2 mega-pixels front camera.

Being just 0.31" thick,the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014) is extremely thin and good-looking. This tablet is a very compact tablet, given that it has a 10.1 inches display and it is just 9.57" long. Samsung is offering this device in two different colors, black and white. This tablet is a bit heavy comparing with today standards, weighting 19.29 ounces.

This device is equipped with a high performance Quad-Core processing unit ticking at 2300 MHz, included in a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 MSM8974 chip and a great 3 GB of RAM. Collaborating with graphic calculations, it also has a 450 MHz Adreno 330 GPU. A great point of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014) is the 32 GB astonishing internal memory and an external memory card slot, more than enough to install hundreds of applications and even the heaviest games available nowadays without worrying about filling the device.

Samsung equipped the Note 10.1 (2014) with a very good 10.1 inches screen, and a 1600 x 2560 resolution, which makes everything look vivid. This screen uses Super Clear LCD capacitive technology, and is multi-touch enabled.

The Note 10.1 (2014) features two cameras, an 8 mega-pixels back-facing camera and a 2 megapixels front camera. It also captures Full HD 1920x1080 videos. In addition, this tablet's camera also includes a high number of valuable characteristics like flash, auto-focus, face detection shooting, fast burst mode, geo tagging and smile detection shooting.

This tablet uses an amazing 8220 mAh Li-Ion non-replaceable battery, enough to provide the Note 10.1 (2014) with an extremely long battery duration. An issue to take into account is that this tablet's battery is non-removable so you won't be able to replace it when it begins to have trouble holding its charge, although with its 8220 mAh you will probably buy a new tablet before that becomes a real problem.

This tablet counts with Wi-Fi capability (which can be shared with other devices acting as a router or modem), LTE 4G high speed internet connection and also HSPA+ connection type, a lower speed 4G variation or the fastest 3G connectivity, over HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS, EV-DO A and EDGE technologies. This tablet works with a Micro SIM card to use GSM services.

This device also comes with many interesting features like Bluetooth (4.0), GPS Navigation, Infrared Blaster and NFC (Near Field Communication), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

Samsung is selling this tablet for 1505 dollars, which is not very cheap for this type of device. If you will use it majorly for social networks, want a tablet for work, want a device for playing games or you love taking pictures, this tablet is definitely a great choice .
