Make the most of innovative, chic tablet use with a difference thanks to the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1" Tablet.

Magnificent multitasking

This tablet PC features a quad-core processor, with Android™ 4.1 Jelly Bean powering effortless multitasking capabilities, and a 16 GB hard drive (expandable via the microSD slot) offering excellent levels of storage.

The Samsung Galaxy Note offers inventive use with the multiscreen button, meaning you can do two things at once without having to minimise the first screen.

Do homework and have your notes up at the same time, watch a film and find out information about the actors, there is really no limitation to what you can do.

Precise S-Pen performance

The versatile S-Pen offers an innovative way of sketching, drawing, or completing other creative tasks. The Galaxy Note Tablet recognises what you pen on to the screen and converts it into on-screen text, accurately recognising your pen strokes.

This Samsung tablet PC also comes with Adobe® PhotoShop® Touch allowing you to create dazzling multilayered images and apply professional effects.

Versatile functions

This tablet PC boasts two cameras, ideal for chatting on the web or capturing the moment as a snap or movie.

There is of course the wide range of apps available from the Google Play™ Store to enhance the use of your tablet, giving you great options and things to keep yourself busy.

If you are lost or need directions then utilise the GPS functionality and guide yourself to your destination, the Samsung Galaxy Note has it covered.

Your WiFi is boosted too thanks to the WiFi Channel Bonding feature, using two bonded channels instead of one so you can access web-based information in half the usual time.

Get the most out of your tablet

A tablet is a truly mobile device. It is designed so you can get the information you need, for work and pleasure, whenever you want it and wherever you are. But only if you are connected!

Mobile Broadband is the best way to get online on the go. If you choose a Wifi Tablet you are relying on being within reach of a Wifi hot spot such as an Internet Cafe. This can be expensive, both for the Internet access and the coffee!

A Mobile Wifi gives you a hot spot in your pocket; it picks either a 3G or 4G signal wherever you are, at speeds that will amaze. Each mobile Wifi lets you connect up to 5 devices at the same time - great if you are in a group. Also perfect if you are using it at home, as the whole family can connect at the same time.

For more information ask in store about how you and your tablet can get online on the go.

For stunning, portable and flexible computing, look no further than the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1" Tablet.

The note 10.1 has such a poor screen. Gave me eye strain every time I used it. And laggy.

Heat given though. Good price.

Believe it or not. Never suffered with eyestrain before I bought the note 10.1 when it first came out nor since I sold it. Had numerous android tablets since and no eye strain.

I read it, but that's how it starts, I first noticed mine on the nexus, and while reading newspapers. Maybe it was just the tablet, time will tell.

Maybe. Doesnt explain how its the only device to give me eyestrain, which hasnt happened with any phone/tablet I've owned since, in an 18 month period.
Oh, and I wear specs already, stable prescription.
Edit: it's always possible I got one out of a bad batch.

Edited by: "stoney73" 8th May 2014

I have a Note 10.1. No problems with the screen or eye strain. I'm over 40 and have to wear reading glasses. The reason the screen is the resolution it is is that at the time, the wacom stylus it uses did not support full HD resolutions. Presume it does now and the second gen one is higher resolution.

Also no problems with lag. If anything, I find my first gen iPad mini lags more.

Good price.

Try a 10.1" Tab version then you'll know what a poor screen and lag is.

I personally don't like the Tab range at all which I've voiced many a time on this forum. If I was forced to buy a Galaxy Tab it would be the 8" version, the only other Tab I quite like is the 8.4" Tab Pro. I'd go for a Note over a Tab any day. As always check out reviews online.

The tab pro is good. Besides that though, they are generally lower spec than the Note range. And no s-pen.

And bear in mind, the s-pen is a proper stylus. Not a rubber tipped piece of rubbish like the ones you buy to use on other capacitive screen devices. Huge difference. I use mine for note taking at work all the time. (Sometimes the tablet, sometimes the Note 3 phone. They're both good ...)

Screen technology has its quirks. Some screens give some people headaches and eye strain, some don't. Like striplights.

They shoot photons directly into your eyes afterall. Given they're trying to make money they're bound to come up with a couple of less than ideal solutions over the years.

I have. I've also had the 7 inch tab 2 (twice for my sins), a nexus 7 2012, tab 3 7 inch, amongst others I tend to change tablets every 4-5 months usually. Buy new, sell on just before next gen comes out.
I could accept the tab 10.1 lagging due to its low spec cpu/ram. I couldn't accept that the note 10.1's lag even with a quad core a d 2GB ram.

Note 2 is far superior, this is getting a bit long in the tooth now, still a much better option than the cheapo Tab range, however with this low resolution unlike the Note 2 in that essence is the same as the budget Samsung tablets.

An ok buy for anyone considering pen support and build quality rather than being bothered by screen quality.

Indeed, there is a lot you can do but it would involve rooting and installing a custom ROM, that could be said for any Samsung tablet. My favourite Android tablets are Nexus 2012/2013 and Sony Xperia Z. I'd like to try an Xperia Z2. My next tablet purchase will probably be a refurb Dell XPS10 (Windows 8.1 Full), as possibly I can get a cheap refurb through work.

True. I used to root all my devices, but stopped once I got the note 3. I haven't rooted my g pad either, mostly due to skygo refusing to run on rooted devices though.

I think it's only after you've used several 'good' tablets you start to perceive real world differences between them and are able to pick out those that have unnacceptable, which you'd only call unacceptable after that much experience, lag. I mean it's really tiny fractions of a second here right?

My first two Androids were such total shtie no one with any experience would even call them Androids (OT-983 and Storage Options something) although they both did EXACTLY what we bought them for - testing websites on Android and playing music. Then Dad got an S4 and Android started to make more sense to me. Now we have a Galaxy Tab 3 8 and, again, it's gonna do a great job.

I call an Android bad when it has 250MB onboard storage and, no matter how much you install apps to the sd card, they still use a bit on internal so I can only ever fit less than 10 apps on there... Welcome to the Alcatel OT-983!

Trolling? How? You are the one doing the trolling.
And yes, bad batches do happen, especially whwn a new device starts production.

Edited by: "stoney73" 8th May 2014

Got one of these a year ago refurbished from PC world. Use it all the time. Resolution is a little low, but doesn't bother me in the slightest. The stylus works well too, it's precise pressure sensitive. i'm an animator and use it for occasional sketching / 2D anim tests. only a small amount of lag but better than the similar alternatives i tried.

The TAB PRO range just got a hefty price cut in USA
This maybe a clearing of the SKUs ?

It is compared to what you can get now but we all know that it doesn't take long for new devices to be released with better specs.

I've had mine for almost 2 1/2 years, it was very good when I bought it and it still is. (_;)

Glad you added the "IMO" as I was just about to sue

Awful tablet in reality.

Bought one when they first came out, luckily through amazon, and it went straight back.

First impressions out of the box are not good at all. It creaks and flexes from the moment you touch it. Turn it on, and you're greeted by a washed out PLS panel with poor viewing angles and a severe lack of pixel density (at the time there were many smaller tablets with 1080p screens.

Just don't waste your money. Spend a hundred quid more and get the 10.1 2014 edition if your heart is set on one of these.

Likely a lack of sales. Samsung seem to enjoy trying to overprice their products even more than Apple. Made even worse by the fact that everything is plastic.

Plus the general public do not buy expensive android tablets. They buy iPads. And when they can't afford iPads, they go to Argos for an unbranded PoS for 50 quid, then label all android tablets as being awful.
