Well, I got mine the other day. I've already got a problem with it. When the galaxy note goes into standby mode, you cannot get back in. I put the password protect option on, the standby went on after 5 minutes of no use. I get the screen with the password box on it, however the box doesn't allow me to type the password in. I have to shut down the tablet to get it to start back up. I've tried other security options, however they all work the same way. It's driving me nuts..........
jason, 23 Aug 2012This is real review:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1838739&page=1Well, Samsung have a lot of "fans"!
ASUS Transformer Pad TF300TG and Asus Transformer Pad Infinity 700 are both better than Note 10.1!

Whatever you trolls said. I didn't regret selling iPad3 and went for note 10.1. Functionality, freedom and creativity are far better for the same price. I am loving it.

http://www.androidpolice... moreVery good review!
Yes, Note 10.1 is too expensive! The 2 Gb ram and front facing speakers are the only good things about Note 10.1! Why no NFC when users probably have S3 with NFC?
Mini apps: "This idea, and even the execution, is great, the problem is all these apps suck. Most of this is just useless. A clock app with no timer or stopwatch, an email app that can't look at emails, a redundant music app that takes up half the screen, a note app that doesn't respect data - this isn't well thought out"
(Pop up play is not as good as "SuperVideo, Floating & Popup", because that can even stream youtube videos in a pop up resizeable window!)
Split screen: "The reason this is so slow is because the two apps aren't actually running in the foreground together. Samsung doesn't have the technical ability to actually make this work, so they used a bunch of tricks to make it seem like two apps are running at once, when really one app is "on" at any given moment", so this is not real "split screen"!
Even on my S3 the "low battery" warning pop up already at 15 procent, that is too early with still a lot of battery left!
"Stock Android is so good now, messing with it is like getting a fully-cooked meal from a famous, 5 star chef, and then smothering it with ketchup"
"The hardware is pure, unadulterated garbage. The build quality is so bad, I think it gave me cancer. Samsung gave us last year's display tech and saved their best tablet screen for Apple"
"This tablet is bad at any price point, but, somehow, Samsung found the courage to charge five hundred dollars for it"
Samsung make aluminum alloy called Duralumin for Series 9 laptop and they make the iPad display, so why not use these on their Samsung top tablets, and phones?
i guess many potential buyer should read this before make any move..
ahah, 22 Aug 2012u spend 500$ in these gadgets, to do what? surf the net, and write something on it???.... com... moreTablets can be very useful! I have often wanted to be able to disconnect the screen from my laptop, and it is often more userfriendly to use a touch-screen than the touchpad! The camera on tablets are very useful because the big screen and a pen is perfect for editing pictures, and the tablet can use the keyboard dock when taking stable pictures or videos! Children love to be interactive on a tablet touchscreen, so tablets schould replace most textbooks i schools! With a tablet you can carry around an entire library of books, and it have a more readable big screen than a phone, and you can use it to read in bed and that is not possible with a laptop with none removeable keyboard!
Was itching to finally get a decent tablet with pen input but will probably skip this as the reviews have been lukewarm at best. Hopefully Microsoft Surface Pro will deliver decent pen input with HD resolution.
u spend 500$ in these gadgets, to do what? surf the net, and write something on it???.... com'on, this is ridiculous. these tables became just useless gadgets, so u walk downtown with ur tablet and take pic, and take note...people will laugh at you.better to get a cell phone, and a nexus 7 tu surf internet at home. u don't need to have all these useless fonction on a tablet...the S pen?? ahahahah!!!! it disapeared 10 years ago because it was useless and now they tell u it s usefull... u sheeps!!!!
scoopyscoopy, 22 Aug 2012Why ASUS Transformer Pad TF300TG is a better value?
- pop up play (nope)
- smart stay (nope)... moreASUS Transformer Pad TF300TG is clearly better value for money!
- pop up play (YES, use the player "SuperVideo, Floating & Popup" from Google Play on any android!
- smart stay (why, I never use it on my S3?)
- mini app (? what is that?)
- slit screen (could probably be fixed with a software update, but it is not too difficult to jump between open fullscreen apps)
- pin input (? what is that?)
- 2 Gb ram (Ok Note have more ram)
- 32 or 64 Gb sd-card (YES it has a micro sd-card slot that can use even 64 Gb if FAT32!)
- better stereo speaker (speakers are bad on any tablet, use headphones or external speakers!)
- touchWiz (almost stock Android is better and faster easier updates)
- Samsung dedicated apps (there are many better and free alternatives on Google Play)
- 1280x800 (YES, the same)
- phonecalls (who use tablet for phonecalls and why pay for mms when you have e-mail? but sms is available on both!)
- audio and video codecs (free on Google Play)
- N8000 better quality (ASUS is not bad quality but it is a lot more value for money because you get an excellent keyboard dock including an exended battery for the same, or less, money as a Note 10.1!)
- ir port (have you ever used that?)
AnonD-252, 21 Aug 2012ASUS Transformer Pad TF300TG is a better alternative that give a lot more value for the money!Why ASUS Transformer Pad TF300TG is a better value?
- pop up play (nope)
- smart stay (nope)
- mini app (nope)
- split screen (nope)
- pin input (nope)
- 2 GB of RAM (nope - you can't extend it if you want more)
- 32 GB or 64GB card can be as cheap as $50 or $100 according to class
- better stereo speakers (nope)
- touchWiz (people said boring, but I think it's the best)
- Samsung dedicated email, calender and other apps definitely better than stock android ones
- 1280 x 800 resolution for 10 inch is not the end of the day ( may be for iFans).
- 2G & 3G phone calls, sms and mms (nope)
- a lot of video and audio codecs which Sammy has thrown in.
- N8000 may look cheap but better quality then Asus
- IR port (nope)
- And a lot more.....
Jon (Swe), 18 Aug 2012"And for all the usefulness of an S-Pen, we would prefer the Transformer Prime TF700T wit... moreASUS Transformer Pad TF300TG is a better alternative that give a lot more value for the money!
I hope Microsoft Surface gives a better specs as I am likely to give up Note 10.1 for the Windows 8 Pro version coming next year.
Anybody can tell me?
I ever used iPad 3 & another android tablet, however some android tablet ( Asus tf700) have bigger quad core and ram than iPad, but when I do anything iPad look smoother than . So I want some user gs note 10.1 tell me, I don't want to wast money anymore, if good, I'll sell my iPad 3 for it.
HTC FLYER didn`t make the tablet with stylus successful. Hope Note will make it. By the way, can Android multi-tasking in split screen get patented. Otherwise, the Fruit company will one day incorporate into iOS and claim they invented it again.
i wonder why GSMArenea didnt include microsoft's Surface on the list.... i think it can be a good rival of the note 10.1!!! they are the same is some ways... they both use a pen...
but i think they only compare the available product....
ryan, 19 Aug 2012hi to all i had samsung tab 10.1.. spect below compare this beast note 10.1...with my opini... moreactually super AMOLEDs r more power efficient than LCDS except when viewing white pages ..that mainly will be visible when browsing ... other wise watching movies and normal use would save more battery than LCDs ...the reason that there is no SAMOLED here is probably due to unite price ....they are more expensive than LCDs
hi to all
i had samsung tab 10.1.. spect below compare this beast note 10.1...with my opinion...i don't mind with the resolution not amoled. its already perfect for me. if it use amoled it will be power hunger...with pls screen..its good enough for me , as long my tablet can stand long enough during playing games or stand by...i did not plan to play my tablet under shine sunny day....if it amoled i believe some of us will low the brightness to safe-standby- battery power...it no point at all.. it a wise choice for samsung did not make note 10.1 amoled...i had galaxy note and s2...i lower the brightness to 30% to safe battery..but when i'm thinking back what is the point i'm doing it...it super amoled the screen should be bright so more power hunger.... believe me...i will prefer long lasting tablet power compare to super amoled screen
