A Big Note!

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - TEST BENCH -

Sam­sung has come out with a wide ar­ray of tablets in its Galaxy range. Some are re­ferred as Galaxy tabs while only a hand­ful be­long to the Note fam­ily.

The Galaxy Note 10.1 was first launched in early 2012. The new one has the same name but with the "2014 Edi­tion" tag. It is ba­si­cally the tablet ver­sion of the Galaxy Note An­droid ph­ablet with a sty­lus.

Sam­sung has tossed in a 10-inch bright dis­play with 2600x1600 pixel res­o­lu­tion. The colours are rich and the text is sharp. Be it watch­ing movies, read­ing books or play­ing games, ev­ery­thing ap­pears su­perb on the tab. Sam­sung has re­placed the plas­tic back by adding a plain, faux leather back panel. The sil­ver edges look stylish.

What makes the Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014) dif­fer­ent is the 'S-Pen sty­lus', tugged on the right edge. Re­mov­ing the pen pops up a few op­tions on the screen to give you quick ac­cess to fea­tures like ac­tion memo, screen write, S Fin­der and Pen Win­dow.

In this com­puter age, some peo­ple still pre­fer the pen-and-pa­per ex­pe­ri­ence to jot down notes. The S Note fea­ture al­lows this as it is very con­ve­nient to take down notes.
