Samsung Galaxy NotePRO SM-P900 64 GB Tablet - 12.2 - 1.90 GHz - White - 3 GB RAM - Android 4.4 KitKat - Slate - 2560 x 1600 - Bluetooth - Wi-Fi Only

Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 is a very solid Android device launched back in 2014, having a big size 12.2-inches multi touch capacitive screen, a great Quad-Core processing unit clocking at 2.3 gigahertz, an 8 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 2 MP front camera. But it's time to get into more details.

Samsung ships this device with an extremely powerful 2.3 GHz Quad-Core processing unit, bundled in a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 MSM8974 chip with a big 3 GB of RAM. Graphic intensive apps and games usually uses a lot of processing time, so it also has an extra Adreno 330 graphics processing unit running at 450 megahertz to help with that calculations. The NotePRO 12.2 comes with a huge 64 GB internal memory and a slot for an SD memory card, allowing the user to store hundreds of apps and even the largest games available nowadays without having to worry about filling the tablet.

This tablet is just 0.31" thick, making it one of the thinnest tablets nowadays. The NotePRO 12.2 is a compact tablet, taking into consideration it features a 12.2 inches display and it only has 11.64" long and 8.03 inches wide. The NotePRO 12.2 doesn't feel very lightweight for a device this size, with a weight of 26.56 ounces.

This device features two cameras, an 8 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 2 MP front camera. This tablet can also film videos up to 1920x1080 (Full HD) at 30 fps. In addition, the camera includes a few useful features: auto-focus, flash and geo tagging.

Samsung packed this tablet with a good level 12.2-inches screen, and a resolution of 1600 x 2560 , making everything look very good. This screen uses Super Clear LCD capacitive technology, and has multi-touch detection.

This tablet offers wi-fi connection (which can be shared with other devices as a mobile hotspot), LTE 4G fast connection type and also HSPA+ connectivity, that is a slower 4G type or fast 3G connection type, over HSDPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. This tablet uses a SIM card for GSM carriers.

This device also includes many interesting features like Bluetooth (4.0), GPS (Global Positioning System), Infrared Port and Near Field Communication (NFC), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

The NotePRO 12.2 packs a 9500 mAh large non-replaceable battery, enough to provide this tablet with a marvelous battery duration. An issue to take into consideration is that this device's battery isn't replaceable so you won't be able to replace it when it begins to lose its charge, whereas with so much capacity you will probably replace this device before that becomes an issue.

The NotePRO 12.2 costs around $ 1615, quite a high price for this kind of device. This device is definitely the correct choice for you if you want a work tablet, love photography, are looking for a social device or are looking for a gaming device.
