Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) is a great Android device released back in 2013, with a really big 10.1" capacitive touch-screen, a great Quad-Core CPU running at 2300 megahertz, an 8 mega-pixels back camera and a 2 mega-pixels front camera.

The Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) feels a bit heavy for a tablet this size, with a weight of 19.29 oz. While the Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) is only 9.57 inches long and 6.75" wide, it manages to pack a 10.1" screen. This device is extremely slim and stilized, with a thickness of just 0.31". Samsung made this tabletavailable only in two different colors, black and white.

Samsung packed this device with a good level 10.1 inches screen, and a resolution of 1600 x 2560 , which makes everything look great. Its screen uses Super Clear LCD capacitive technology, and is multi-touch enabled.

The Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) is powered by an extremely powerful Quad-Core processor clocking at 2300 MHz, included in a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 MSM8974 system chip with a large 3 GB RAM. Graphic calculations generally uses a lot of CPU time, so the Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) uses a 450 megahertz Adreno 330 graphic processing unit to help handle those graphic tasks. This tablet has a 16 GB quite large internal storage and a slot for external memory cards, enough to store hundreds of games and apps without running out of space.

This device counts with wifi connection (which can be shared with other devices around, acting as a wireless modem), LTE 4G high speed connectivity and also HSPA+ connectivity, a lower speed 4G variation or the fastest 3G connection type, using HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS, EV-DO A and EDGE technologies. This tablet works with a Micro SIM card to connect to GSM networks.

This device has two cameras, an 8 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 2 megapixels front-facing camera. It can also film videos in Full HD 1920x1080. The camera also features a lot of cool features: auto-focus, flash, fast burst mode, smile detection shooting, face detection shooting and geo tagging.

This tablet has an amazing 8220 mAh Li-Ion non-replaceable battery that provides this tablet an incredible battery duration. An issue to take into consideration is that this tablet's battery isn't replaceable so you can't buy a new battery when it starts losing capacity, though with this big battery you will probably replace this device before it becomes an issue.

This tablet also includes many interesting features like Bluetooth (for communication with other tablets, computers and accessories), GPS Navigation, Infrared Transmitter and NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your tablet close to another NFC device or tag), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This device is a very solid device priced about $ 460, similar to other same level devices. The Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) is probably a very good choice no matter whether you will use it as a social tablet, love photography, will use it for work or will use it to play games.
