While Apple was that with the introduction of the first iPad, the tablet market revived, it is Samsung that in recent years the busiest been experimenting with different types of tablets. The Koranic manufacturer brought out models in all shapes, sizes and price ranges: cheap 7 “tablets, tablets for children, exclusive expensive tablets and of course tablets in the Galaxy series, which are equipped with a stylus.

In that category Samsung last month introduced a number of new models, the 12.2 “NotePro was by far the most memorable. Yet few manufacturers have dared to bring with screens that are significantly larger than 10 tablets out”, but in the If the NotePro is to understand the choice. well Note the tablets have always been designed with the supplied stylus for people who want to sketch and draw, and a larger canvas can not hurt.

Overall, still runs on Android, but the home screen of the TouchWiz skin is properly transferred to the shovel and has little more away from the traditional full-screen icons.Alternatives

The NotePro 12.2 “with its large screen and stylus features extensive such a stranger in our midst, it is hard to find. Comparable alternatives result, however, we will not be put off. We started looking tablets containing at least one stylus and preferably a large screen from that quest showed you an end with a big bag of money,. many expensive Windows 8 tablets come complete with stylus Those costs, however, well over 1000. euro, which they regard as price no serious alternative to the NotePro 12.2 “.

The Note 10.1 2014 Edition is apart from the screen almost identical to the NotePro 12.2 “.

In this review we take NotePro 12.2 “under the microscope, and we see how the large size like in practice and whether the changes in software terms provide a better user experience. Additionally, we have, as always, of course, the invidiuele components extensively reviewed and tested . Conclusion

It is not easy to achieve. An unambiguous conclusion about the NotePro 12.2 “It is abundantly clear in any case that the NotePro a niche product is that the mainstream user probably does not appeal. People have become accustomed to the idea that a tablet handy and is mobile, and although you’ll be fine in a backpack can fit the NotePro, it is essential to use a device other than smaller tablets and there is still the finest work if it is flat on the table. He is also a suggested retail price of 749 euro considerably more expensive than the most popular tablets today.

“In this price range we expect a tablet, proverbial flies”

All this makes the NotePro 12.2 “to a product for which you have to choose because you like a big screen and a stylus will. But imagine, quite explicitly, you are that person, then you get value for money? Partly within and in part not . Samsung has succeeded in the product to stop a lot of functionality and software, there is much added value, with free trial subscriptions to Netflix, NRC, The New York Times and Business Week. And then there are of course Samsung’s own apps and additions to Android.

Samsung knows how to do so with all the extras and ancillary matters, impress but if we focus on the core user experience, it makes the NotePro, apart from the good stylus integration, less impressive. In this price range, with hardware of this level we expect a tablet, proverbial flies. In daily practice NotePro 12.2 “performance is less smooth and fluent tablets that cost much less than that is not new to Samsung, this. Criticism has long been hearing from many angles and we hope that Samsung in the development of its software will put more emphasis on performance.

It’s relatively poor performance and the high price of food and throw a spanner NotePro a completely positive assessment deny. The almost identical Note 10.1 is about 250 euros cheaper, for example, while you are buying just for a little more money Surface Pro 2, with powerful hardware, also a stylus and the ability to be much more graphic software like Photoshop, to turn. In many areas the individual NotePro can fight, but when he went all-round product in our eyes just short.
