Comparing a 10.1" display against a 4.7-5.7" display running on the identical CPU/GPU and expecting the same graphics performance is a bit nuts. I'm too lazy to calculate it and usually get it wrong but if you break both displays down to square inches and multiply it by the PPI you'll see why the N10.1-14 appears "slow" in comparison to the devices everyone's mentioning. Compare its browsing against the Nexus 10 and TF701 which have the same resolution and what's poor suddenly looks good.
I can show you the difference though. In off-screen benchmarks the Tab Pro 8.4 scores as well as any S-800 device (the 8.4, 10.1, and 12.2 are all pushing the same total
number of pixels, the PPI goes up and down depending on screen size).
Onscreen, it's a whole different story.
So with anything involving graphics and screen painting the N10.1-14 is going to take a hit compared to other devices that are serving less pixels.
