The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 comes with a 10.1-inch display, 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, 2 GB of RAM, 7000 mAh battery, Exynos 4412 Quad system chip and an Android 4.03 operating system that is upgradable to Android 4.4.2 KItKat with over the air updates. You might also have the luxury of finding some custom ROMs from the XDA-Developers forum that allows you to update to Android 4.4.4 or Android 5.0 Lollipop since this is a favorite device.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is the largest tablet in Samsung’s extensive range that aims to give just about everyone the chance of buying something that suits them. It’s also the tablet that is the best as they usually give the largest tablets the best specs also. Knowing that the best specs come in the larger sizes, it would be natural to assume that the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet was a huge success, but it didn’t take off that well.

Could it be because Samsung already has so many tablets in its range and people have no idea what it is they are buying anymore? Possibly. It could also be because the original launch date was pushed back and the tablet market just isn’t as strong as it once was in previous years. Still, if you’re shopping around for a new tablet and want to buy something of quality, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 is one of the best of its time.
