Very fast processor
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is an Android 4.0 tablet made with note taking in mind. Unlike many other tablets, it comes with a special stylus - the S Pen, which offers precision superior to that of generic capacitive styli. In terms of specs, its 10.1-inch PLS TFT display has a resolution of 1280 by 800 pixels, and its quad-core processor runs at 1.4GHz. A pair of cameras is also on board - 5MP main one with auto-focus and LED flash, and a 2MP front-facing shooter.
Amazing Wacom S Pen is stylus heaven
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is ugly and innovative, powerful and limited, a success and a disappointment. With its superb quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM, it's the most powerful Android tablet yet, while its stereo speakers mean it's the best-sounding. Its Wacom-based S Pen and tailored apps/interface make it an amazing creativity tool, and it comes with some great pre-installed software like Photoshop Touch.
Granted, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 lacks the one competitive spec that other top-tier tablets specifically the Acer Iconia Tab A700, Apple iPad, and Asus Transformer Pad Infinity TF700 have at the same or lesser price. Samsung's rendering enhancements help lessen the sting of this omission somewhat, but the difference is clear, particularly with text-heavy content.
Stylish, superb media playback
It's a much over-used expression, but the Note is an iPad killer. We aren't pretending that Samsung has quite the same build quality as the Apple, and we know people are beholden to the iTunes ecosystem, but the Note has so much that's unique and features that we'd actually use. Its screen is its biggest letdown, but it's not bad, it just doesn't compare well to the iPad 3. It is, however, a great tablet and is very deserving of its score.
Cutting edge fast CPU
Samsung hasn't disappointed us with their new flagship tablet. The Galaxy Note 10.1 has everything we wish for in a tablet except a full HD display: a bright and sharp display, active pen input, an excellent software bundle with customizations that improve usability, dual band WiFi, an AV remote and more. Though the casing is plastic, fit, finish and quality (including the internal hardware design) are excellent.
Fast performance from a powerful quad-core processor
The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is Samsung's best 10-inch tablet yet. It's propelled by a powerful chip and the S Pen stylus marks it out from the competition (so long as you have a use for it). While the underwhelming screen resolution and lack of Android Jelly Bean software are disappointing, if you're willing to shell out, it's still a sound Android tablet.
It's hard not to be immediately sceptical of a device that on the face of it is the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 with an S-Pen thrown in.
Once you spend some time with it, you begin to see the benefits and understand why having a souped-up stylus on a big screen makes more sense than having it on the 5.3-inch Samsung Galaxy Note. It's the closest we've come to a real pen on paper experience on a tablet, but is that enough?
I don't understand why anyone would buy an Ipad over this tablet. I have done alot of research & have owned & still do have an Ipad but it just sits in the drawer now. Unless you like being confined to itunes for all purchases & no expandibility or flash. This is the way better tablet. & there is no need to pay extra for the 32 gig when you can just add a 16 gig sd card for $12. Also it is a bit higher price on here. bought mine at H H greg for $289.00
Seamless docking experience
The new iPad is still the best all-round tablet you can buy, and is backed up by a fantastic eco-system of apps, magazines, music, games and content. It's the more pleasing and polished option, and if your main aim is to keep cost down and entertainment high, the TF300 still falls short.
Individual needs and budget will determine if the Asus Transformer Pad TF300 is right for you, but we applaud Asus for marrying value and performance, and the TF300 comes highly recommended.
Well-built, still thin and light
With its Transformer Pad 300 - or TF300 to give it its model name - Asus has done it again. For under £400 you get a convertible 10in tablet with an IPS screen, Tegra 3 quad-core power, oodles of connectivity and battery life, and a keyboard dock that transforms (if you'll pardon the pun) it into a genuine productivity tool and basic netbook equivalent.
No problem with opening apps quickly and coping well with multi-tasking
The Transformer Pad 300 offers an attractive package for a reasonable price. £399 will get you 32GB of storage and the keyboard dock thrown in too. The excellent selection of ports, decent screen, competent performance and Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich round-off a solid effort from Asus.
Sharp IPS LCD, Sturdy metal build
The Coby MID1065 is one of the least expensive 10-inch Android tablets you'll find. While it makes some performance sacrifices for a low price, its sharp display and healthy selection of ports make it worth considering if you're on a strict budget and need a large-screen slate.
Working perfectly well
I got this about a month ago, so far it's worked perfectly. Almost no bloatware, runs every app I've installed on it (including Dosbox to play old Windows games like Heroes Might&Magic 2).
Video playback is perfect, and plays every format I've thrown at it so far.
When Apple touted the so called 'retina display' I thought... "why?" I didn't have a tablet back then but I didn't see why a 10" device would need a super-high resolution... and I was right.
WOW! IMPRESSIVE DEVICE FOR THE MONEY!!
This device rivals some of the nicer tablets I have used(Polaroid, HP, etc). Most importantly, the touch screen is very responsive and not cheaply constructed like most of the lower grade tablets . Its actually glass, instead of the cheap plastic, which is a BIG plus when it comes to kids and cleaning it. Although its not "true" HD display, the widescreen format and resolution are surprisingly comparative to it.
Great phone/tablet phablet!
Had it for a few weeks now, working great. I drain the battery too quickly with my gaming. Phone works, tablet working but laggy or slow. It's my first tablet so I really don't know how good it is. Still learning to use it, but I like so far. Fit in needs. Part of my decision to get his with 3G or 2G is because I don't plan to use it that way. I am working with wi-fi and speed varied by provider and I have my own wireless mobile hotspot.
Great Tablet For The Price
First off...for people expecting an Ipad or Galaxy Tab...you're not going to get it for the price. What you will get is a nicely packaged mid-level tablet. It's light weight and smaller size make it great for carrying around. Despite the smaller 7" screen size, it has very good graphics for games, movies and books. The touch screen can be a little quirky in response, but it's functionality doesn't suffer in the least.
