There are a ton of great tablets out there and to help you differentiate the good, the bad and the meh.  We at Have Sippy are taking a look at the Samsung Galaxy Not 10.1 2014 Edition.    This tablet has a huge screen, is responsive, easy to use, and fun.  It’s great even in the sun, has little to no glare, and has a great battery life as well.


The Galaxy starts off with the familiar Galaxy Note 10.1.   The Galaxy Note starts with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.  With an impressive 2560×1600 WQXGA 4 million pixels display pictures and video look incredible and the size of the screen is almost.  Images are sharp, videos clear.  With a 1.9GHz Samsung Exynos 5420 Quad-Core Processor games and applications scream with speed.  Each app opens quickly and easily.  The tablet also has a 8M camera with flash and 2M full HD capabilities.  The camera does a good job and pictures are sharp video it can record at 30 fps in 1080p resolution.

One of the most interesting aspects of the Galaxy Note is the S Pen.  The S Pen is like a super smart stylus.  Not only is it for dragging and clicking and writing but also navigation via the Air Command Menu.  With this menu users can get additional information about a  highlighted object with Air View.  Also available are: Scrap Booker which lets you copy and paste anything for later use.   Action Memo lets you write down a note at any time.  s Finder, helps organize and keep your data in order.  Screen Write is a lot like the print screen on a desktop.  But instead also opens up an graphics program to play with to your heart’s content.  Last but not least there is the Pen Window, that acts like a Picture in Picture for the Note.  You can open an App in an App.  IS open a calculator while working on a  word document, watch a silly cat video between worksheets in Youtube or simply check your calendar before making an appointment.

The Galaxy Not 10.1 2014 Edition is light, quick and fun to use.  The Note is available everywhere and retails for $499 for the 16 GB model and %550 for the 32 GB model.

  1. I would love to have one of these. I think the S Pen would be really handy. Thanks for the review.

    interesting,,ive been wanting to try one,but not sure I want something that small yet,,even with glasses I don’t think I could read that tiny screen

  3. I’ve been looking at the Samsung tablets lately. I’m working a lot while I’m out now in an effort to keep up with all the demands on my time. I was considering a Note 3 as well. How does the S-Pen hold up over time? Have you had any problems misplacing it?

    • Samantha says

      So far, I’ve had no issues with it. I’m a fairy careful (and anal retentive) person, so I don’t often misplace things, but if you are more like my husband, what I did for his tablet pen was use rubber bands to sort of “tether” it to the tablet so he won’t keep losing it. Hope that helps! 🙂
