The company claims that the Note Pro 12.2 would offer the users with productivity, similar to that of a PC. However, the present generation has started to accept the tablet PC device. On the spec sheet, the Android tablet comes with high-end features and specifications, which are similar to that of any high-end tablet. The Note Pro comes equipped with a large display, as compared to other 10-inch tablets. Even if the comparison is made with the Note Pro 12.2-inch tablet, the latter would be ahead in the race with its unique S Pen stylus. But, would it be enough to stay ahead in the lead?
The release of Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 edition boasts of a remarkable spec sheet to that of its predecessors. The Note 10.1 2014 edition comes equipped with a sharp display and an entirely new design. The S Pen of the Note 10.1 2014 edition comes with certain enhancements as well. Regardless, the Note 10.1 2014 would be competing against various prized tablets presently available in the market.
Let us stack these two tablets against each other in terms of design, to determine a better looking tablet of the two.
Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2
Samsung Electronics adopted the faux leather look in the design of the Note Pro 12.2 design. The sophisticated and buttoned down look, makes the handset appear an all leather tablet from a distance. However, the tablet is still all plastic, but provides a nice feel than the normal glossy finish. Regardless, the glossy plastic attracts fingerprints and makes the handset more slippery. The metallic rim around the Note Pro provides the tablet with a high-end look.
The designers and engineers at Samsung Electronics managed to keep the tablet within the 8mm range, similar to other high-end tablets in the smartphone arena. The dimensions measure 295.6mm in stature, 204mm in breadth and 7.95mm in thickness. This is the maximum compactness a 12-inch tablet can get.
The bone of contention is the weight of the tablet, which comes at 753 grams. As a result, it is difficult to carry around or hold in hand for long duration.
S Pen Stylus
The Note Pro 12.2 comes equipped with S Pen stylus, neatly tucked in the silo, placed in the top right corner of the tablet. The S Pen stylus can be easily pulled out and pushed in the silo. It can be easily handled and comes with an action button, comfortably placed on the S Pen stylus.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014
The Note 10.1 2014 edition is entirely different from its predecessor, the Note 10.1 tablet.
The glossy finish has been replaced by an artificial leather casing, providing the tablet with a more premium look. In addition, the device comes with design accents such as the silver trim bezel and stitching on the rear, which harmonizes the overall design of the Note 10.1 2014 edition tablet. Despite the changes made in terms of material used in its manufacturing, the device still provides a plastic feel in appearance. In terms of design, it carries the same traditional look characteristic of Samsung Electronics. Regardless, the tablet comes at a thickness of 0.31-inch, providing a thin profile and lightweight design.
S Pen Stylus
The Note 10.1 2014 edition comes equipped with an updated S Pen stylus. It comes in a shape of a pencil, easy to grasp and easily tucked in the slot provided on the tablet. It is pressure sensitive and comes with an advanced Air View feature.
