One of the key benefits for the Nexus 10 for hardcore development is that its superlative resolution allows it to pull off that fancy simulation of pretty much any Android config.

I have the note 10.1 and I'm considering the N10.
Multitasking in the note is great, is it a step back to give away 2 cores?

I always want a tablet but never get as nearly all Samsung tablet was lagging especially the tab 10.1, then I seen note 10.1 where quite smooth but still not smooth enough in it UI, you still spot from time to time lagging, that time it still running ICS.

Then my friend buy the Asus padfone2 and I was really impress with it performance, extremely smooth no lagging issue, I nearly buy it but I notice it don't have dev support here and it screen kind of more yellowish. I give up at the end.

Then I check out this Nexus 10, from all video I seen, it really impress me the whole performance. Nexus 10 was the right choice tablet for me, it extremely smooth and great sharp clear display.

If you ask me in market which tablet can buy for 10.1 size now, first choice will be Nexus 10, then padfone2 and lastly note 10.1, all this 3 was usable tablet.

Note 10.1 was much smooth after upgrade to latest jelly bean and all Samsung add on customize was a plus for it. But those cool features was fun to have not a must for me.

Smoothness and performance wise, note 10.1 will be in rank 3 for me, it ain't bad just not extreme top performance for me.

No because the cores that the nexus 10 does have are A15 cores which are far superior to the A9 cores in the note 10.1 plus the GPU is much much improved and it has open CL support.

Default I own both, and if I was only able to have one...

....I would have to pick the Note 10.1

It is hard to explain why, but if I had to generalize - it is because it is simply more interesting and, for me, is much more usable as a daily driver than any other tablet. I am lucky to own several tablets: Xoom Wifi, Nexus 7, Nexus 10, Galaxy Tab 7 7.0, Galaxy Note 10.1, and iPad 3 32GB/3g. I have also owned the Lenovo K1 10.1" and the Transformer Prime along with a rooted Kindle Fire with JB on it.

I have owned them all within weeks of their launch. There is no question whatsoever that the Nexus 10 is faster than the Note. I base my performance measures using Octane Benchmark on Chrome Beta which benchmarks on Octane than any other browser that I have found. (The Note averages a little over 2,000, whereas the Nexus 10 averages a blazing 3,800!)

The JB 4.1.2 update for the Note has made it even more useful - a smoother experience for certain. I actually like Touchwiz after the JB update. To me, the Nexus 10 seems just plain now. I never thought that I would say that as I was always striving to get the pure Android experience.

I like that Samsung still supports Flash in their 4.1.2 build (in the default browser). Flash is still a must for a 100% web experience, though I am not a huge fan.

I do like the Nexus 10, and was very happy that Samsung, not Asus (!), was building it for Google. My past Asus experiences were terrible (I try and forget the Transformer Prime) and though I had high hopes for the Nexus 7, it has proven to be solidly an Asus product - laggy - feeling little, if any faster than the Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 with the recently released JB 4.1.1 update on it.

I think the ideal tablet would be a cross between the two devices - perhaps that would be the perfect Android device I have been waiting for (no, unfortunately, none of the ones I have now can be considered that perfect one). If the Nexus 10 becomes the basis of the next gen Note, then we may just may have the perfect device.

I have also owned both of these (my forth and fifth Samsung tablets after the 8.9, 7.0 plus and 7.7). I prefer the Nexus 10. Here are my reasons:

1: Build quality. The Nexus 10 has Soft-touch plastic on the back. The Note 10.1 has a flimsy sort of platic on the back. This difference in design is the difference between feeling like Samsung made a giant SGS3 on the cheap (having liked the SGS3) and wow, I have a premium piece of electronics. While that may not matter compared to whats under the hood to some... for my $500+ dollars... (ok, I bought the note 10.1 for 330 and the 32gb Nexus for 440 but still) I shouldn't have the worst build quality of a 2012 Samsung Tablet

2: Screen. The screen is better. This screen is the best screen on a tablet.

With the downsides of losing remote, microsd and pen. I didn't use the remote on my other samsungs so it was no big deal. MicroSD... that was a major issue. I have an AT&T LG Optimus G with a 64gb card and had a 32 GB card on the Note 10.1. I looked and saw I use 25gb regularly (given how many games I like to keep. My plan is to use Titanium to save game progress and uninstall/reinstall games as I intend to play. The pen never meant anything to me... I just wanted a faster tablet than the 7.7 not made by Asus (and grew weary of the Kindle Fire 8.9).

The 10.1-inch Super PLS TFT display with 2,5601,600 pixels is Nexus 10′s ace up the sleeve, the highest screen resolution on the market. But Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 comes with Android 4.0.3 ICS plus the Value Pack apps that get the most from the stylus and the motion controls, that provide some of the Samsung Galaxy S3 experience, and it is very fast when it comes to browsing and launching apps.

So which one to choose depends on your real demand.
