Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 Review: Conclusion

galaxy-notepro-12-2-review-ssnlfGoing into this review, I didn’t think I was going to like the Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 much. It was nothing personal against Samsung, just that I’ve begun to appreciate smaller tablets. I switched to an iPad Mini with Retina Display, and the Google (GOOG) Nexus 7 is my current favorite among Android tablets.

But after using it, I can see the appeal of the Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 and its big display. As I mentioned earlier, it’s tough to beat when it comes to multimedia, whether that’s games or watching movies. Having 12.2-inches of space and four million or so pixels means you can cram a lot more on that screen too — something that business users and multi-taskers will appreciate.

The Android tablet experience continues to improve too. This Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 review was my first encounter with Android 4.4 (KitKat), and that certainly didn’t hurt the experience. Even the battery life was decent (in the range of nine hours), unexpected for a device with such a large display to light and drive.

If you’re looking for a big tablet, SSNLF currently has the mass market to itself with the Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 — at least for now. There is strong competition for the prosumer market in the iPad Air (as well as some of Samsung’s other tablets) and the enterprise market in Microsoft’s Surface line. But the Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 is certainly a contender in both areas.

As of this writing, Brad Moon did not hold a position in any of the aforementioned securities.
