    Engadget Review

    Unless you absolutely need the Note 12.2's extra screen real estate and Remote PC feature, you're better off getting the Samsung Note 10.1 2014 Edition instead, which offers a similar experience for $150 less.

    Pros
    • Great size for consuming media
    • Relatively thin and light, given the large screen size
    • Remote PC feature works well and is easy to set up
    Cons
    • Too similar to the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition, which costs $150 less
    • Middling battery life
    • Sluggish real-world performance on the WiFi-only model (the LTE version will use a different processor)
