Galaxy Note 10.1 Review

| January 29, 2013 | Reply

A big thanks to Lamarr Wilson for the video. Not a proper review, but so damn funny :)

Our Review:

Firstly, the Galaxy Note 10.1 is available in deep grey or white. Personally, I’d go for the white since I think it looks better in that colour. The grey one looks like the Galaxy Tab 2.

Take a look at the latest Samsung Galaxy S3 Review

Overall, this is a nice looking tablet, it’s full of plastic (Samsung just loves their plastic), but it must be said that they do a nice job making it look sleek and well finished.



 

Cool S Pen

With 10.1” large touch screen and built-in S Pen, Samsung have actually improved  the sensitivity and accuracy on this new model. By the way, the pen is actually digitally active, so in effect it’s talking to the tablet constantly with every little move.

There’s a metal looking surround at the front of the tablet  and some nice stereo speakers (at the front) which is a big thumbs up from me. By doing this, it looks less like the iPad and actually looks like a different design completely.

Can Use Existing Accessories

Its got a standard Samsung dock connector which can be used with any existing Samsung 10″ accessories and adapters such as chargers, keyboards etc.

On the top of the tablet you’ll find the usual suspects, power button, volume controls, SD card slot, IR blast which enables to control your other Samsung devices (notably your TV) and a 3.5mm headphone jack.

On the front you’ve got your  a 1.9 megapixel camera and at the  rear you’ve got a 5 megapixel camera with LED flash just like the Samsung Galaxy SIII.

1280 x 800 PLS Display

As I’ve previously mentioned the tablet has a  10.1” large touch screen, 1280 x 800 PLS display (some people were moaning that Samsung should have produced a 1920 x 1200 display). To be fair, I think Samsung managed to pack a lot of features into this unit. I’m definitely going to give them a hard time over it. They’re also trying to keep the price down on the tablet too, so you can’t have it all I’m afraid.

The colour saturation on Samsung screens is just adorable and a pleasure to look at. So if you want to watch movies on this thing or even high def Youtube clips, this is great!

There’s plenty of accessories avaiable with this as well as a cool looking bluetooth one (for those that just have to have a keyboard).

Running Android 4.0 Ice cream sandwich, you can get Jellybean on some networks, but Samsung are usually super slow in handing out any updates.

It has a 1.4GHz quad core Samsung Exynos CPU, 2GB RAM and 16GB/32GB storage, dual band WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, and a GPS with Glonass.

The battery life is pretty good with an average 6 hour of video playback (which ain’t that shabby). Probably 2 – 3 days of moderate use like using the apps and producing documents.

You can purchase these with either 16 or 32GB of storage and it has 2GB of ram. You can use a micro SD card if you need more memory to store additional files, music etc.

By tapping n the right hand corner you can bring up all of your function setting like WIFI, sound and GPS (a standard Samsung interface) which is handy if you want quick access to these controls.

Overall, I’d give this a 10/10 on all fronts and highly recommend it. If you’ve got other Samsung products, then this will certainly complement them.

I set up Hot Deals Monster because I was frustrated with the lack of deals specifically targeted to Men. I wasn't interested in cheap nappies or 10p off my next box of cornflakes. I wanted real, interesting deals that would genuinely help and save money for the male consumer.
