I have an LG G2 and the Note 2014 and in almost all everyday task, such as browsing,
the LG beats the Note. One of the most striking differeces is with Swiftkey. On the Note, there is a very noticeable lag when I type fast...both in the keypop animations and whats being typed on the screen. On the LG G2, everything seems instantaneous. I think it has alot to do with the governor/power management of the Note. I've looked at BBS stats and the Note spends alot of time at 250mhz. Between 1.9ghz and 250mhz there really isnt much activity. That tells me that for most tasks the Note sticks to 250mhz, and jumping straight to 1.9 only when pushed. Its great for battery life, but its probably whats slowing things down on this tablet.

Galaxy s5 browser
all i want is some basic browser that can open in fullscreen (and i mean full screen without the status bar) and it should have touch friendly controls that apears only when you touch the screen. but it seems like am asking alot.

so far the only browser i liked is the S5 browser, its amazing and i wish someone can port it to note 10.1 2014

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.
