Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014) Review

A Powerhouse Tablet to Compete with the iPad Air from Samsung

Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1

Before buying the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 Edition), I must have read over 50 reviews. All on a variety of competing tablets including the iPad Air.

A couple of months ago, I was convinced that I was going to buy the iPad Air on release. I already had a bunch of accessories and peripherals in my wish list at Amazon. When the iPad Air was finally released, I was so disappointed, it was just a large iPhone 5s in my eyes.

I love Apple products and was all set to buy the iPhone 5s too. However, when that got released, I played with it side by side against my iPhone 4s to see what had changed. With both running IOS 7, and looking at this from a mid to heavy users point of view, I could barely see any difference between them. The Three Network however, wanted an additional £10 per month on my contract for the iPhone 5s​. Yeah right!

I bought the Samsung Galaxy S4

Both the iPhone 5s and the iPad Air seemed to have no new features that I was looking for. Expandable memory, multi-tasking and so on. Apart from faster chips and slightly enhanced software, they were just the same as they ever were.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 has a amazing screen, a ton of cool features and all sorts of funky stuff to keep me amused. It was a long and painful period of reviewing tablets, playing with them and working out what functionality I needed. The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014 edition) was the obvious choice.

It would compliment the Galaxy S4 and meet all my photo, video and internet needs. But...after a month or so, how is my love affair with Samsung devices holding up?
