The display, though not high resolution, is bright and colorful thanks to Samsung's PLS technology that's similar to IPS, and the tablet is attractive even if it is cursed with Samsung's love of shiny plastic.

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.

Galaxy Tab 3 10.1  vs Note 10.1 

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.
Galaxy Note 10.1

Display: Considering that this tablet targets individuals who are big into photo-editing, it's unfortunate to find its display flaunting WXGA 1280 x 800 resolution – underwhelming to say the least.

the $370 price on amazon is not for the 2014 edition. The Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 16GB is $549.99; 32GB $599.99
see the difference between 2012 version and 2014 version before talking about thiswebsite
just a quick google search shows that the note 10.1 doesnt have an absurd 2560x1600 screen but a 1280x800 (WXGA) screen. i would check your facts before making a website like this.
