Default In depth review of the Note Pro 12.2 KitKat

I just love her (mobiletechreview) in depth reviews and felt like sharing! After watching or sweeping through I feel like I know everything about a device. This is of course interesting to us because KitKat on Note 10.1 2014 will most likely look very similar to this minus one or two "pro" features.
And I really like what Samsung has done to the general feel of their new Tablet Touchwiz! I'm gonna use Nova launcher anyway for homescreens but stuff like notification center or settings do look good. IMHO.

I'm using the magazine UI and it feels very responsive, I have no complaints.

Yes im using it on the Note Pro 12.2

It does not lag like the 10.1 2014, it could be the new KIt Kat or they actually improve performance on the UI, Hope when they release the update for the 2014 10.1, it will also benefit from the nice performance improvement.

I see zero lag on the 2014, but so far find the battery life for my comparative use very lacking.

Performance is equal to my stock Excite 7.7 and iPad 4 which are virtually instantaneous for both UI and app use.

I'm loving this new Tablet. The screen is amazing and the magazine ux is pretty cool. Didn't think it be much of an upgrade over the 10.1 2014 but it really is. Honestly they probably should have skipped the 10.1 2014 all together and just came out with the pro line. Battery is definitely better as well. Not sure it's really worth the full $750 I'm on the fence there..but I'm an early adopter I have to have my electronics obsession filled regularly so perhaps to me it is. Build quality maybe questionable.. It's definitely not in iPad league as far as that goes. But I still love it, definitely a unique device. It feels like a laptop without the keyboard if that makes any sense.

It's not an update. Just a bigger screen. Same resolution and insides. We will get the new software soon anyway

Isn't it a downgrade? The 2014 comes with 3gb ram?
