Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 Review
What I’ve discovered is in the smaller tablets, not only is the screen size smaller, every thing else is less.
The larger 12.2” tablet is large enough at 12.2” to make you think you’re on a laptop with a 1.9 Ghz Quad + 1,3 Ghz Quad Octa-Core CPU, 3GB RAM and wi-fi. It has 32 GB storage and a microSD slot so you can ad additional memory.
The display is a 2,560 x 1,600 WQXGA resolution with the vivid display Samsung is known for on their cell phones and television monitors.
The 8 mega pixel camera with a flash allows you to zoom 4x and shoot full HD video at 1920 x 1080 at 30 frames per second. If you’ve been used to the camera function on the Samsung Galaxy family phones you’ll notice the similar layout in functions and settings and you’re still able to shoot in 10 different modes including beauty face, sports and panorama.
The screen is large enough so you can type as if on a laptop or you can add your own keyboard. For ultimate functionality I add both a keyboard and mouse, or when I want to travel lighter everything is self contained within the tablet weighing in at 1.66 pounds. Powering it uses the same cable as the Samsung Galaxy 5 and Note 3 allowing you to consolidate cables and the battery lasts up to 11 hours of video playback and up to 13 hours of Wi-Fi.
With the quad-core CPU and Android Kitkat you have the Android world of apps open to you. I can multi-task through various screens and enjoy movies with the privacy of a plug in jack for earplugs or Bluetooth, I can also write, or edit photos and videos.
With the stylus, I can also write notes and memos, draw or scrapbook.
The Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is a great piece of technology. Better than an e-reader, best of the tablets, the one thing it doesn’t currently do is replace my laptop which is still a necessity with editing for high def video and lack of software and apps currently available. For the most part, I’m glad to leave the laptop packed and make the tablet my road warrior. In the past several months, it’s traveled to England, Germany and France besides the United States. It’s exceeded my expectations as to what a tablet can be.
