So I picked up the 2014 note yesterday. I had the regular 10.1 note for a year already, but since it was stolen a few weeks back, my company insurance covered a replacement. I picked up the regular 10.1 and realized the 2014 edition came out a few weeks later. I was surprised by the difference and feel of this power house! I was still in the 30 return policy so I replaced it.
I Love everything about this tablet, I also played with the ipad air to see what the fuss was about and I must say, it was also smooth. Felt nice in my hands and the cosmetics was nice also. However, I am a big fan of openness, freedom and being in control of what's mine. This tablet does 10x more than the ipad and serves my needs perfectly. Can't wait till we get some Roms for this thing.
