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 high quality Android tablet released in January 2014, packing a Octa-Core CPU (actually, there is a Quad-Core at 1.9 gigahertz and another Quad-Core speeding at 1.3 GHz), a big size 12.2" multi-touch capacitive screen, and two cameras, an 8 MP back facing camera and a 2 megapixels front side camera.

Samsung equipped this tablet with an extremely powerful Octa-Core processor (actually, it has a Quad-Core at 1900 megahertz and an additional Quad-Core ticking at 1.3 GHz), included in the Samsung Exynos 5 Octa system chip with a big 3 GB RAM memory. To help with graphic intensive games and applications, it also uses an ARM Mali-T628 MP6 graphics processing unit running at 600 megahertz. The NotePRO 12.2 counts with a large 64 GB internal storage memory and an SD card slot, more than enough to install lots of applications, games, songs, pictures and videos without having to worry about running out of space at all.

The NotePRO 12.2 has an amazing design, with a thickness of just 0.31 inches. Although the Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 is only 11.64 inches long and 8.03 inches wide, it's still able to fit a a 12.2" screen. Samsung appears to have forgotten about weight optimization in this 26.46 oz tablet.

The NotePRO 12.2 has a very good 12.2 inches display with a 1600 x 2560 resolution, which makes it hard to see the pixels that compose the display. This display uses Super Clear LCD capacitive technology, and is multi-touch enabled.

This tablet is equipped with two cameras, an 8 mega-pixels back camera and a 2 mega-pixels front camera. The Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 can also shoot videos in 1920x1080 (Full HD) at 30 frames per second. In addition, the camera features some interesting characteristics: auto-focus, flash and geo tagging.

This tablet has Wi-Fi connection (and it can be provided to other devices around, as a mobile hotspot), LTE 4G high speed data connection and also HSPA+ data connection, a lower speed 4G network or 3G fast connection type, over HSDPA and EDGE technologies. The NotePRO 12.2 uses a SIM card for GSM connection.

This device counts with a big 9500 mAh non-removable battery that can keep it running for several hours without charging it. An issue to consider is that this device's battery isn't replaceable so you can't buy a new battery when it starts to lose capacity, while with its 9500 mAh you will probably replace this device before that becomes an issue.

The NotePRO 12.2 also comes with many interesting features like Bluetooth, GPS Navigation, Infrared Transmitter and Near Field Communication (NFC), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This tablet might not be such a good choice considering it is priced $ 1615, while other similar tablets cost a bit less than that. No matter whether you need a tablet to play lots of games, will use it mostly for social networks and internet browsing, you love taking photographs or want a work tablet, this device is probably a great choice for you.
