Samsung’s latest line-up of high-end tablets has taken a different dimension in the Galaxy Note Pro series.
The Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 is not only attempted as a direct competition for the iPad Air, but also for the notebooks. On the other hand, the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 is a device that is expected to directly compete against the iPad Air, primarily because of its screen size.
The Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 features a 10.1 inch display that provides a 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution. This means that the device will be able to provide just under 300 PPI, of pixel density, whereas, the figure is substantially better than the 247 PPI offered on the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2. Despite having the same resolution, the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 offers a lower pixel density, because of its larger 12.2 inch display. Samsung offers the same Super clear LCD technology, compared to the Super AMOLED technology, found in several other devices in its portfolio.
Primary differences, between the two devices, arise in the performance department, where the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 offers power from Exynos, while Snapdragon 800 runs the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014. Both processors are extremely fast; but there are several situations where the snapdragon processor excels. The Exynos chip, due to its octa core nature, performs extremely well in high-end gaming. The speed of the snapdragon processor depends upon the model chosen with the LTE models coming with a quad core 2.3 GHz processor. The ability to handle multitasking is similar in both devices due to the 3 GB of RAM.
Despite differences in terms of performance, the two devices have almost similar levels of imaging capabilities. They both come with an eight megapixel camera, complete with the standard set of features like full HD video recording and LED flash. There is also a front facing two megapixel camera. Recognizing the tablet’s ability to support a wide variety of connectivity options, the growing need for video conferencing is aptly satisfied in the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 and the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014.
Due to its slightly larger display size, the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 has to come with a 9500 mAh battery, compared to the 8220 mAh battery on the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014. The life of the battery, however, is similar on both products, with each of them expected to easily last around 12 hours, even with heavy multimedia usage. The Galaxy Note 10.1 2014, though, lags slightly in this regard, with an unexpected battery life, of around 10 hours under similar conditions.
Both devices come equipped with a stylus, similar to that seen in the Galaxy Note 3. This helps take advantage of the tablet’s immense computing power. Both devices offer up to 128 GB of storage through a combination of internal memory and external memory card support.
The 16 GB variants of the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 come with a price tag of $497 while the 32 GB variant, which is the base, of the Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 costs around the same figure.
