Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 Review: Really, Really Big

There’s no getting past first impressions, and the first impression of the Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 is that it’s big. Really, really big. Take a look at the photo. That’s not an iPad Mini sitting on top of my Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 review unit, it’s an iPad Air — Apple’s largest tablet.

It helps that it’s relatively thin and light weight (for its size), but the fact that Samsung goes with a 16:10 aspect ratio instead of the 16:9 that Microsoft (MSFT) uses with its Surface 2 tablet (reviewed here) makes it seem less top-heavy when held in portrait mode.

That being said, two-handed grip is definitely required with something this large, and finding a comfortable position in which to use it is a little more challenging than with a typical tablet.

However, thanks to Samsung’s multi-window display capability (up to four apps can be run and displayed simultaneously in their own windows) and four million or so pixels, this may just be the best multi-tasking and multimedia tablet around. It would be great for presentations, too. That’s all made possible by the massive display of the Galaxy NotePRO 12.2.
