Review Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1
Concept and design
The first thing that is surprising when we hold the new Samsung tablet is how thin and light compared to its competitors. With a thickness of only 8.9 mm, this tablet is even thinner than some of the latest smartphones. Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 also has a weight of 600 grams, lighter than the new iPad, which weighs 652 grams.
The design of the Galaxy Note 10.1 modern minimalist theme. Like most other Android tablet, the Galaxy Note comes with a landscape orientation as the default mode. As a result, the front camera is on the top on the landscape orientation or on the side when used in portrait position. White tablets that stop by the office YC pillowcase combines silver frame with white main color harmony. To the outside, the frame is thicker and there is a pair of speakers flanking the screen conveniently. Seen from this placement, 10.1 Galaxy Note is designed to hold in landscape. That’s why the placement of the speakers facing forward is very important, because the sound from the speakers will directly lead to ear users.
At the top of the tablet, which is located several important ports and buttons. MicroSD and SIM card slot is located here, protected by a plastic cover that neatly. 3.5 mm audio jack is also placed here, flanked by the Infrared port, a line with a screen lock button and volume. No ports other than port multi pin Samsung located at the bottom, so you have to use a converter from this port to use USB components. This port is also used to recharge the battery Galaxy Note 10.1, so do not forget to always bring innate wiring tablets when they want to travel. Overall, the design of the Galaxy Note 10.1 more attractive than the Galaxy Tab 10.1. The placement of the buttons and ports are also quite fitting. In one corner of the body, there is a useful for storing the stylus when not in use.
Stylus concept has existed since Microsoft introduced a tablet PC nearly 10 years ago, which was also adopted by Palm. However, since Apple popularized the tablet with the iPad, though the stylus becomes an item of ancient technology and outdated. Though the function of this pen very much, especially as input devices. With the S Pen, Samsung’s back hit the market armed with a credo of KIS (Keep It Simple). For what tired-tired of typing with the virtual keyboard if we could write with a pen just like writing on paper?
S Pen is the active stylus that does not depend on the conduction of static electricity from hands to operate a capacitive screen, so you can use gloves to use this stylus while interacting with the screen Galaxy Note 10.1. Then as an active stylus, the S Pen is able to detect the pressure so it is appropriate to create realistic images, especially in simulating the effect of a brush; artists or art students will definitely menggandrungi Galaxy Note 10.1. Please note, this stylus can be used in the Samsung Galaxy Note product line only.
As a flagship feature, the S Pen fully integrated into the operating system of this tablet. When removed from its place, it will display a menu bar on the right side of the screen that lead to applications that are optimized for the tablet’s stylus. One of these applications is S Note. S Note looks like a notepad app on the Android operating system, but the difference lies in the full integration with the S Pen. With the S Pen, the palm of our hands can touch the screen and automatically S Note will only accept input from the S Pen only. It impressed trivial, but in the end there is a tablet that allows users to write with a more natural position. Sensitivity S Pen is also very high, if like tracing (tracing) the image of the comic, you simply put the page you want to trace and trace over the tablet screen with the S Pen. However, not only the application notes only, S Note also has a “formula translator”. You can enter any formula in writing and the application will automatically find the derivative function by opening a second display via the Internet browser, it is suitable for students of economics or those who have struggled with math formulas.
Besides S Pen, one of the features of the Galaxy Note 10.1 is the ability to open two screens applications at once. Unfortunately applications that can run at once is limited to the default video player, the default email app, Polaris Office, S Note and Gallery. Then, due to the limitations of the Android operating system, you did see the two screens, but only one application is actually run. When I open the browser and S Note, for example, when browsing, then S Note will be in a state of hibernation, it is clearly seen when we want to enter the writing on the S Note that there is a pause / lag when switching applications. Just a video player that can run on both screens without any problems when the multi-screen mode. Even so, multiscreen function is very useful and one of the features that separates Galaxy Note 10.1 of its competitors.
Unique features that are not less than 10.1 is the availability of the Galaxy Note infrared port is included with the application Peel universal remote that is included. To set this remote to work with your TV, simply select the brand of the TV that was on the list. You can also manually enter the functions one by one in Peel. When you try a universal remote function, we are not surprised by the ease of setting it up. However, a somewhat surprising is the range of infrared Galaxy Note. Used at a distance of almost 10 meters, 10.1 Galaxy Note can still change the television channel. Given the limited space, we could not try more than that distance (because it met the wall).
