The dimensions of the Note Pro 12.2 are bigger at 11.64 x 8.03 x 0/31 inches, whereas the Note 10.1 is smaller at 9.57 x 6.75 x 0.31 inches.

However, both the tablets have the same resolution of 2560 x 1600, but the Note 10.1 scores in pixel density, as it has a smaller screen, with 299 ppi as against the lower 247 ppi of the Note Pro 12.2. Both, however, make use of the Super Clear LCD technology for the display screen.
Camera and Battery
Both the tablets have a primary camera of 8 MP with LED flash and all the regular features of Autofocus, Digital Zoom and Geo tagging.

Hardware Specs Comparison
The Note Pro 12.2 as well as the Note 10.1 are both powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 with a quad core processor of 2300 MHz, Krait 400 and a system RAM memory of 3072 MB. However, the Note Pro 12.2 has a better built in memory of 32 GB, compared to the 16GB available in the Note 10/1. Both the devices can, however, be expanded to 64 GB with a microSD card.
Apart from the size of the two devices, there is not much difference between the two. The user experience in the Note Pro 12.2 is really amazing, but the big size can be a bit award and does not lend itself well to portability. Both the devices also have the leather type cover on the back offering a classy look to both the tablets along with the S Pen. All the usual Samsung apps come pre installed in both the phones, such as the S Note, the S voice, the Group Play, as also the S Voice, the WatchOn, the ChatOn along with some other useful apps, like Dropbox, Flipboard, TripAdvisor and so on.
One specific difference in the user interface is that the Note Pro 12.2 offers the Magazine UX, which is not present in the 10.1. The Note Pro 12.2 has excellent specifications and great features, but many might not like the huge size and might opt for the Note 10.1, which is more handy. However, multitasking on the 12.2 can be great, as you can open 4 window panes and also adjust the sizes. Tasks can be accomplished sooner and applications can be run side by side as well. With the Note 10.1, it is also possible to multi task with the split screen where you can work on two applications simultaneously. You can also open multiple apps, but the screen is smaller in this case. However, price might be a deterrent, as the bigger Note Pro 12.2 is certainly more expensive at around US$1000, when compared to the Note 10.1 offered at around $600. The Note 10.1 from Samsung is the perfect answer for portability and functionality, complete with S Pen and other high-end specifications.
