HWM (Singapore) - - Multi-Test -

It is no sur­prise that the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edi­tion shares the same de­sign lan­guage as the Galaxy Note 3. It uses the same leather­like ma­te­rial for its rear, which feels and looks good al­though we won­der how long it will stay free from dirt and stains. This shouldn’t be a con­cern for con­sumers who are plan­ning to get the black model.

Com­pared to the other 10.1-inch tablets, the Galaxy Note 10.1 sports a thin­ner bezel that still pro­vides suf­fi­cient space for your thumbs to hold with­out in­ter­fer­ing with the dis­play. Un­like most An­droid tablets, the Galaxy Note 10.1 has a phys­i­cal home but­ton flanked by ca­pac­i­tive menu and back but­tons. The S Pen is housed se­curely on the top right cor­ner of the tablet.

The Galaxy Note 10.1 runs on An­droid 4.3 Jelly Bean and the lat­est ver­sion of Sam­sung’s TouchWiz. TouchWiz is vastly im­proved with fea­tures op­ti­mized for use with the S Pen such as Air Com­mand and one-handed op­er­a­tion on all screens. Love it or hate it, the stan­dard suite of gim­micky soft­ware fea­tures (e.g Air Ges­ture, Air View and Smart Scroll) found on the Galaxy S4 are also found on this tablet.

The LTE vari­ant of the Galaxy Note 10.1 runs on the Qual­comm Snap­dragon 800 quad-core 2.3GHz pro­ces­sor and 3GB of RAM. Keep­ing the tablet pow­ered up is a 8,220mAh bat­tery. The Galaxy Note 10.1 comes with 32GB on­board stor­age ca­pac­ity and a mi­cro-SD card slot sup­port­ing cards up to 64GB.
