Lisa Gade reviews the Samsung Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 Android tablet with a quad core CPU and a 12.2", 2560 x 1600 Super Clear LCD. The Note works with the included S Pen and touch, and it has one of the largest displays found on a pure tablet design. It weighs 1.65 lbs. and is very thin at 0.32", so it's not a burden to hold. The WiFi model we review runs on the Exynos 5 Octa 5420 CPU with MALI T628 graphics. The LTE version will run on the Snapdragon 800 with Adreno 330 graphics. Features include Samsung's multi-window multitasking, their new Magazine UX home screen UI, dual band WiFi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 4.0, a GPS with GLONASS, 2MP front camera, 8MP rear camera and a IR blaster for AV home theatre remote control. The tablet has USB host and a microSDXC card slot. Pricing is $749US for the 32 gig model and $849 for the 64 gig model. Read our full written review here: http://www.mobiletechreview.com/table...

I have a way around the "skinny pen"- Create a vurtual and hollow pen (using either stiff paper with one of those pen deals you put on to save your fingers (gummy thingamabob?), and set it up so you can put the s pen inside it thus building a shell the right size for your prefrence, that you can put in and out- yes you eliminate the ease of carrying it with you, but what I do is carry it with me in the tablet bag/carrier or just use this when I plan to use the pen a lot and not when I'm only using it for a second.

I have been following you way before you stood in front of the camera in your reviews. ;-) wink wink nice to see such a wonderful person talking to me on technology I love. I think it's about time for me to give you the respect you deserve. It is great you are able to review products before they come out in the US but you are, let me say it right (well descriptive and well rounded) on your implementation of any device I stress any device. You are my go to every time plus I look up to you when I really need a real review on a device. One love and thanks for you just being you and Happy Valentines Day. I hope you had a great one your fan/friend Marshall signing off Cheers oh did I say you just made a great video of the Samsung galaxy note Pro yes you did

She's one of the best YouTube reviewers. Great job as usual #Lisa. I plan on getting the 64 LTE model, to go with my Note 3.
Also the internal storage memory is quite lacking (32gb) for a device this expensive.

Lisa, wonderful review and overview.  I've been watching your reviews for years, and you're one of the great, the few, trusted and unbiased tech reviewers in the field.  Thank you for what you do!  Anyway, I picked up a black 32GB Note Pro 12.2 from Best Buy a couple of nights ago.  I'm a bit of a tablet and phone addict, I have them coming out of the wazoo (it's not painful).  This guy is something special.  Beautiful screen (although I'm pretty sure it's some kind of pentile/non-RGB-stripe matrix, and I can see the cross-hatching - it's big and beautiful enough I can overlook this), fast speed, ample storage.  The touchwiz can be a little off-putting sometimes (I particularly hate how settings is split into tabs - I can never find the right tab first time) but it's really not that bad, and I like the look.  Magazine UI I can take or leave - it's basically flipboard - but I like the office/business page for seeing my work calendar and emails at a glance.  Yes, I could set up widgets for that - but I don't have to now.  Speakers are good, pen works great - the wacom accuracy is maybe even better than the surface Pro IMO.  The only slight dig software-wise I have is the version of S-Note.  I really dislike the interface for the new S-Note, and I hate that it shows a cover page image, rather than a thumbnail of the note, on the note list/overview page.  OTOH, S-Note now synchronizes well with Evernote, which is a large plus.  The other note niggle I have is that action memo notes do NOT get put into S-Note by default - you have to manually select and share them, whereupon they are turned into images.  This is a MAJOR step backwards in functionality which has been present since the Note 3 and Note 10.1 2014.  I cannot fathom why Samsung did this.  I love the tablet in most other ways though.
