As you'd expect from the TI OMAP 4430 CPU, benchmarks are just better than half of those from quad core tablets.

Last year's dual core Exynos CPUs with Mali graphics were some of the fastest on the market, and we're glad Samsung waited for the quad core Exynos 4412 to roll out the Note 10.1.

7.0

Like the 7.0, it has solid but unspectacular specs (a 1GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 1280 x 800 TFT display, 16GB or 32GB of internal storage, dual cameras), plus Android 4.0, all for a very reasonable $399.99.

In return you get a stunning 2560 x 1600 display with lovely colors and clarity, the S Pen for precise writing and drawing, Samsung's excellent Multi Window split window multitasking, good S Pen support from third party notes and drawing apps, a fast CPU, expandable storage and USB host.

Thankfully, even if you don't use the pen, the Note 10.1's fast overall performance, sensible design, great-looking screen, and useful features make it the best Samsung tablet yet.

What makes things even better, the camera app is rich in modes and settings – lots of the fancy stuff a Galaxy S4 can do with its camera, the Tab PRO 8.4 can do as well.
