Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 review: Flying first class

23 October 2013
Lightweight, agile and simply affordable, seven-inchers did, at one point, seem capable of pushing ten-inch Android tablets out of business. Even Samsung, with its device-for-every-taste approach had to admit defeat...

Bought it (LTE version) back then in 2014. Still usable in it's 7th year. Can still handle my Real Racing 3 game like a champ. Still gives me a full day of normal usage (phone calls & web browsing) from it's battery. Have fallen almost a hundred times and the screen is still intact. This has been the most value-for-money gadget I've ever bought.

            I have had mine since first release. Been using it for going on 5 years now. Love it! No serious problems. Email program, that was installed when I bought it, says I have 47 emails, but there's nothing there. I'll figure it out. Love samsung!

              I use mine since its first release. now using it over 4 years and it is still the best Samsung tablet, despite there are newer tablets even with S-pens. You can compare this device with newer release tablets to see that in written specs and features, it still beats them. I use it everyday to watch, surf, edit photos or to edit videos. (Please check VideoPad from NCH Software if you are interested in professional video editing or if you are working at the movie industry.) I used it as a PC replacement for about 2 years in 2015 and 2016. I wish I had full office abilities such as using macros in excel. for me only missing feature of this device is that a missing full feature office software. Powerful, stylish, feature rich, helpful companion.

                    I have not been lucky with my Samsung note 10.1 I bought in 2015. I never used it so much, and I only used it at home. One day it did not start, and when I connected to charge it did not charge. I sent it to Samsung reparation store being under guarantee. They repaired but did not know what happened. After a while, I had the same problem and I took it to the same place. They repaired it again but did not explained to me clearly what was the problem. I used it for almost one year, only in my home and not everyday, I was happy and started to feel comfortable using my Galaxy Note when one night I tried to turn on it and did not work. I recharged recently and the battery was charged in 92%. I tried to recharged but did not work. I sent it for reparation and I was informed the mother board collapsed, and it is nothing they can do!! I do not understand how it is possible a quite new equipment can be out of order so quick and without possibility to be repaired. I would appreciate any advise.

                        Hello. I have problem with my Samsung Galaxy note 10.1 LTE, 2014 Edition 32GB. There is some problem with failure of motherboard, I can’t find new one for replace.
                        Can you help me and send me correct motherboard specification number and recommendation where is possible to buy it?
                        I think that 2,5-year operation is too short time to finish manufacturing of spare parts for tablet repair.

                          I have had my galaxy 10.1 2014 edition for a little over a year and a half. I use it on a daily basis mainly for Internet and emails. I've noticed last few months that the battery it's not lasting as long as when it was new. I have to charge the battery very night where I could get away before with every other night. It is a little laggy but it does everything I wanted to do. I haven't had any firmware updates in quite sometime. Been about a year. I normally buy Samsung products I currently have an s5, s6 and a Galaxy Tab 10.1. Overall I'm very happy with Samsung's products but I do not like TouchWiz.

                              I have found this tablet the best given the ones available in the market. I have read a number of review articles comparing ipad Air and Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014.
                              These are the things I like about it:
                              1. Expandable memory;
                              2. File manager;
                              3. Ability to transfer files between this device and any other via Bluetooth;
                              4. Drag and drop, ease of loading files (pic, videos, docs etc) in and out of the device, without need for internet connection;
                              5. The use of stylus pen is incredible and matchless.

                              What I do not like
                              1. The device lags at times, I normally run a RAM test and close all apps which may cause this.

                              On overall, this is a great device one can own, smooth, nice, usable for different purposes, meetings, entertainment, research...

                                        Not that great. I just bought one. It's a laggy and buggy device. I made all the updates (3 soon after turning it on). Nothing changed. I'm telling you, I'm the owner of a Galaxy note 2 and a g. note 8, and they are incrediable better, more faster and smoother. I'wasn't expect nothing else than worst than that. Is similar in buggy and laggy as the my fist galaxy S (three years old device), or worst.
                                        The screen is amazing, the battery life disapointed. Previously this tablet I had an Ipad 2, but I sold to buy this one... Even hating apple i'm missing it. In the end, I rooted, freezed a lot of apps, and installed a new launcher, to improve what samsung should do by itself...
