Google Play Magazines and Zinio magazines are a pleasure to view and even the typically tiny text in magazine articles is readable without zooming, which is quite a feat on a small screen.

Reviews Word on the street for the Samsung Galaxy TabPRO


9.0
Yes, it has a price tag to match, but that's fair enough when you're getting the fastest CPU and graphics, an amazingly high resolution display that looks great, an AV remote, dual band WiFi 802.11ac, GPS, the latest version of Android and a stellar Office suite.

7.7
The Note Pro beats the Windows RT-based Surface 2 on software options, but right now Microsoft's tablet has the best keyboard on any tablet and its multitasking implementation makes less of a performance hit.

8.0
Enriching browsing, Adobe Flash support is in, and the 7in form is a good size for reading web pages.

7.4
It's not as fast as the iPad, but still quite good (and still better than my home Wi-Fi at points).

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Screen

The Galaxy Tab 7.7's display sports a resolution of 800x1280, which is great for this screen size, making even smaller text and other details appear crisp.
by PhoneArena (Sep, 2011)
It's a bright display too, with good contrast and decent, though not Super AMOLED, black levels.
by MobileTechReview (Mar, 2014)
The display has very good color saturation and you can mildly customize color balance using Samsung's display modes presets.
by MobileTechReview (Jun, 2014)

Operating System

That's the highest resolution you'll currently find on an Android tablet, and text is pin sharp and photos are very detailed.
by MobileTechReview (Jun, 2014)
Without a doubt, the Android 3.2 operating system makes a world of difference, as the device faster, more productive and efficient in its performance and capabilities.
by PhoneArena (Sep, 2011)
It's the closest thing to true multi-window multitasking I've ever seen on Android, and it's excellent.
by The Verge (Mar, 2012)

Operating system

Remote PC can control Windows, Mac and Linux PCs remotely, albeit with some lag.
by MobileTechReview (Jun, 2014)
We've seen Samsung's multitasking before, and it really shines on bigger screens.
by MobileTechReview (Jun, 2014)
Samsung built a solid, high-end tablet with great internals and a great display, but equipped it with an operating system that's just not up to the task.
by The Verge (Mar, 2012)

Apps

Not much added value here with these mini-apps, but as long as their presence doesn't bog down the interface speed, we can live with them.
by PhoneArena (Sep, 2011)
It can handle everything except full screen games (we tested it with Steam games like Skyrim).
by MobileTechReview (Mar, 2014)
The Email tile is handy for example, but I wish there was a Gmail tile.
by MobileTechReview (Mar, 2014)

Camera

Samsung's own more budget-minded $349 Galaxy Tab 4 10.1 has a lower resolution display, lower resolution cameras and a slower CPU, but it offers many of the same features including Hancom Office, the AV remote, card slot and multitasking in a very similar looking package.
by MobileTechReview (Jun, 2014)
The rear 8-megapixel camera takes sharp enough pics, but there's still a dearth of color within the images.
by c|net (Feb, 2014)
The 3.2-megapixel camera on the back isn't particularly high-res, but does all right, and the 2-megapixel front-facing shooter is actually better than its equivalent on most tablets.
