Video: Samsung Galaxy NotePro 12.2 is a seriously impressive tablet that blows away other Androids

On the face of it the Samsung Galaxy NotePro 12.2 is a 12-inch Android 4.4 Kitkat tablet – modified with Samsung TouchWiz and Magazine UX.

It comes with Samsung's innovative pressure sensitive S Pen, 32GB of internal memory, a microSD card, 3GB RAM and a spilt Octa-core processor to manage both simple and heavy duty tasks. (See also: What's the best tablet?)

Where Samsung has to be given huge credit is for sheer quality of Samsung Galaxy NotePro 12.2's design. The now-standard Note range's rear-leather finish really helps this NotePro stand out from the rest of the market, while giving it a sharp look and pleasingly grippy yet sophisticated feel.

There's an acceptable amount of bezel on show, with the physical home button, front-facing camera and sensor neatly sunk in.

There is a slight problem with the tablet's overall size (295.5 x 204 x 8mm) and weight (739g), however. This isn't much of a problem if you are using the device on a desk, or on your lap, but trying to stand or use it with one hand is tricky and tiring to say the least.

What is undeniable with the Samsung Galaxy NotePro 12.2 is that it is oozing power, and you get the feel when its performing mundane tasks such as flicking around the home screen and opening and closing apps, that it's all just child's play for the Galaxy NotePro 12.2.

Verdict

The Samsung Galaxy NotePro 12.2 is a seriously impressive tablet that blows away the vast majority of Android tablets and leaves them eating its dust in terms of power. If you've got £600 to blow and want a tablet that's bigger than 10-inches then this powerhouse won't disappoint in terms of performance and looks, and to be frank it's your only option as it's the only device out there like this.
