Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 review (2014 edition)

The 2014 Note 10.1 looks fantastic and has the best specs of any Android tablet out there, but we grew frustrated by its choppy performance.

Pros
  • Beautiful high-res display
  • Thinner, lighter and easier to handle
  • Incredible audio performance
  • S Pen functionality
Cons
  • Unusually sluggish performance
  • Battery life isn't as long as expected
