Samsung Galaxy TabPro 10.1 review

 

We're not sure what the TabPro 10.1 has more of - pixels or freebies. But does it offer pro performance?

What a screen ; Magazine UX + business freebies = gold ; Light for a 10in tab

No S Pen ; Performance stutters ; Google Play still lets 10in tablets down

One serious screen and the smartest extras we’ve seen on an Android tablet, but the TabPro just isn’t quite slick enough

Samsung Galaxy TabPro 10.1 review

 

Samsung is certainly no stranger to tablets. But you might be left scratching your head and wondering what's what given how many model numbers and sizes are available throughout its ranges. Of all the "Pro" Samsung tablets, the Galaxy TabPro 10.1 is...

Excellent display, lots of power, Android & Samsung software works well, decent battery life, multi-tasking options

Expensive, that faux leather and plastic build, software approach "doubles up" access approach

Of all the "Pro" Samsung tablets, the Galaxy TabPro 10.1 is among our favourites. It's just the right scale, is slim and light, yet packs plenty of power in too.

Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 review

 

The Galaxy Tab Pro middle child

Bright, hi-res screen ; Powerful processor ; Slim, light design

Convoluted Magazine UX ; Cheaper plastic feel

With the massive Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 and diminutive Tab Pro 8.4, this 10.1-inch slate is the most socially acceptable, narrowly avoiding the title of awkward middle child with its impressive screen and powerful insides.

A lovely high-resolution screen and some useful productivity features, but the Tab Pro's performance is disappointing

Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 review: A premium slate that doesn't perform under pressure

 

The Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 is stylishly thin and comfortable with a stunning screen, however, its performance under pressure is one of a rookie, not a pro.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 is lightweight and comfortable to use, with a stylishly thin design that provides sufficient grip support. Performance is fast for simple tasks and it includes a ton of software perks.

$499 is an expensive starting price for any tablet. When multi-tasking, performance significantly lags with random freezes and unexplainable app crashes.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 delivers everything casual tablet users will need, but it's all tied down to an inflated price tag that makes comparable options more attractive to budget-conscious shoppers.

Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro hands-on review: CES 2014

 

Samsung has announced a range of new tablets at CES 2014. Here's our hands-on review of the Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 tablet from Las Vegas.

We like what Samsung has done with the Galaxy Tab Pro in terms of hardware but the software is barely recognisable as Android 4.4 KitKat. This leaves us somewhat unsure about the device so stay tuned for a full review.

Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 review

 

A 10in business tablet capable of challenging Apple's iPad Air

Robust security, decent application offering, good display, reasonable camera by tablet standards

No S Pen, uses previous generation processor

Despite featuring a few niggling flaws, like the lack of an S Pen Stylus and an older Snapdragon 800 processor, the Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 is a very good tablet. Coming with Samsung's Knox security service and productivity focused Magazine UX skin...

Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 LTE - A Non-stylus Note Striving to be Pro

 

Recently, there has been a trend in pushing devices tailored for the enterprise market space. Samsung's new Galaxy Tab Pro series of tablets panders towards this market space as a step below the Note series, but does it deliver? We take the Galaxy Tab ...

Very light and thin; Superb display; Enterprise-level apps bundled out of the box

Designed for enterprise, but is better suited for content consumption; Portrait handling hampered by Home button; Stutters observed, more so in multi-tasking; High price

Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 review

 

Samsung seems to be hell bent on producing a device for everypossible niche and demographic at the moment, and it's starting toget just a little bit confusing. Just to remind you, the Tab is thetablet without the stylus (the one with is the Note) and...

Terrific screen, powerful processor, slim and sturdy build

On the pricey side, microUSB 2.0

The Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 expands the size of the original8.4 for an extra £100 or so. It looks good, works fast and comeswith a few new interface tweaks. Otherwise, it's much the same, andchoosing between the two will simply depend on the size...
