Best tablet for taking notesSwelling the S Pen-toting tablet ranks once again, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 adds a slightly new look and more power to make the stylus-packing slate a great buy.
Available in Wi-Fi, 3G and 4G varieties, the Android tablet has reduced the screen bezel and upped the display quality to a sharper 2,560 x 1,600 pixel display. Under the hood there’s an Exynos Octo-core CPU and 3GB of RAM to help keep things ticking over. The stylus is still the star of the show of course and there’s plenty of apps to play around including Action Memo which uses hand-writing recognition to make sense of your scribbles.
It musters up an impressive 12 hour battery life, great by 10.1-inch tablet standards and even delivers decent snaps from its 8-megapixel main camera. All the changes help make the new Note another great full-sized tablet for people who still want that pen on paper-like experience.
