Basically, the Galaxy Note Pro and the Galaxy Tab 12.2 are enormous with their 12.2 inches display. The Galaxy Tab Pro 10.1 is almost the size of the iPad Air yet it appears small next to the 12.2 inches tablets. On the other hand, the Tab Pro 8.4, which is a bit larger than the iPad mini looks very small next to the 12.2 inchers. The tablets feel relatively light and are adorned with faux leather and plastic.

If you prefer smaller tablets, the Tab Pro 8.4 has a big advantage as it sports the same 2560 x 1600 resolution squeezed into a smaller display. Among all the tablets, it has the sharpest display at 359 ppi. However, the stylus along with a number of stylus-based software can be the biggest selling point of the Galaxy Note Pro.

It is also worth to note that the Galaxy Note Pro and the Galaxy Tab Pro 12.2 come with bundled premium services like Dropbox, NY Times, Bitcasa, Bloomberg Businessweek, Evernote, Cisco WebEx Meetings and Blurb. According to Samsung, these services cost up to US$700.
