Wi-Fi Only (SM-P907A)     See other variants reviews Score: 9.1

Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 is a top quality tablet device released back in the year 2014, which counts with a high speed Octa-Core CPU (as a matter of fact they are really a Quad-Core ticking at 1900 megahertz and an additional Quad-Core at 1.3 gigahertz), a 12.2" capacitive display, and 2 cameras, an 8 MP back facing camera and a 2 mega-pixels front camera. Is that all? No, it's just the introduction of a much deeper review.

This tablet is quite a compact tablet, taking into consideration it packs a 12.2 inches display and it's just 11.64 inches long. Being just 0.31" thick,the NotePRO 12.2 is extremely thin and practical. This tablet isn't very light comparing to other devices , weighting 26.46 oz.

Samsung packed this tablet with a very good 12.2" screen, and a resolution of 1600 x 2560 , giving this portable tablet a good level graphic quality. Its screen uses Super Clear LCD capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch for gestures like pinch and zoom.

Samsung decided to power this tablet with a Samsung Exynos 5 Octa system chip, including an extremely fast Octa-Core CPU (they are really a Quad-Core speeding at 1900 megahertz and a Quad-Core clocking at 1.3 gigahertz) and a big 3 GB of RAM. Graphic rendering generally eats a lot of processing power, so the NotePRO 12.2 has a 600 megahertz ARM Mali-T628 MP6 graphic processing unit to help with that calculations. An excellent aspect of the NotePRO 12.2 is the 64 GB inmense internal storage and an external memory card slot, allowing the user to install lots of applications, games, photos and videos without worrying about running out of space at all.

This device features two cameras, an 8 megapixels back side camera and a 2 megapixels front-facing camera. It is also able to capture videos up to 1920x1080 (Full HD) at 30 fps. The camera also includes a few useful features: flash, auto-focus and geo tagging.

This tablet counts with Wi-Fi connection (and it can be shared with other devices as a mobile hotspot), 4G (LTE) fast connection and also HSPA+ internet connection, a lower speed 4G technology and the fastest 3G data connection, over HSDPA and EDGE technologies. This device uses a SIM card to use GSM services.

The Samsung Galaxy NotePRO 12.2 also comes with some nice characteristics as Infrared Blaster, Bluetooth and GPS (Global Positioning System), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This tablet uses a 9500 mAh high capacity non-replaceable battery, enough to provide the NotePRO 12.2 with an incredibly long battery duration. An issue to take into consideration is that this device's battery is not replaceable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it starts to lose its charge, although with such a big battery you will probably discard this tablet before it happens.

Samsung is selling this tablet for 1615 dollars, which is expensive for comparing with similar portable tablets. No matter if you are looking for a device for gaming, are looking for a tablet for work, need a tablet mainly for internet broswing and social networks or want it to take lots of photographs, this portable tablet is a very good choice for you.
