I've had my Galaxy Tab 12.2 for a little over two months and so far I am very pleased. The included office software is very functional, the size is excellent for movies and video, photo editing applications are great with a large screen for more precise editing. Gaming is for the most part good, though some slowdown is evident on more graphically intensive games. Using an aftermarket keyboard application is useful to set the keyboard on the bottom right for one handed operation so you dont have to reach across the massive screen (an inherent issue if you buy a massive tablet, so beware, it's huge) the expandable memory slot is great for keeping the included memory from being cluttered with music, videos and pictures. Bluetooth connectivity with headphones suffers a slight lag, but very tolerable. The speakers are plenty loud, and I have used it for music in vehicles with no stereo. The battery life is great, though it diminishes faster with a lot of intensiventouch screen use. The UI is a little heavy handed, but I am partial to a more streamline no-frills experience and I could see the UI being pleasing to someone who wants to keep their news and social feeds in the front lines. I was a little surprised that of the 3GB of RAM only 1.6GB was available for use on average, meaning that the system UI takes a lot of resources which I do believe contributes to some of the complained about system lag. I would like to be able to disable the magazine interface, but that is personal preference. All in all I would recommend the tablet as it performs most tasks I throw at it very well. The multi window feature is great, I was using it at work the other day to browse my music playlist while reading a technical manual in pdf format. The screen is bright and sharp, and is very adjustable for dark viewing. I am enjoying the tablet a lot, if you are in the market for something larger for watching movies and productivity, this is a great buy. If you aren't up to holding a gargantuan tablet, you may want to drop down to the 10.1 or 8" model.

Registration process is frustrating and asinine. It should be more automated. You cannot cut and paste relevant ID numbers (serial# and Mac ID) Stupid... The frick Serial # is so small...Read complete review
Registration process is frustrating and asinine. It should be more automated. You cannot cut and paste relevant ID numbers (serial# and Mac ID) Stupid... The frick Serial # is so small it is hard to see even with a managing glass. Just my opinion.

Powerful tablet for a newbie
I was shopping for Android tablets to test/debug my coding. It was the AMOLED display with the amazing video playback that made the choice for me. The powerful processor inside convinced me I would not have lag-time problems switching around between apps. I have owned SmartPhones before this first tablet, the Pro 12.2. At first there was anxiety on my part if I had made the correct hardware purchase. The Pro 12.2 is a unique size and the choices for add-on accessories can be a limited. After locating a leather book cover for the Tab Pro I am happy to wait and add anything else later on. What I am mostly impressed with is the Pro 12.2 can do many things with just the wi-fi and the KitKat Android OS. The app stores offer many free and professional-grade apps. I like the FOSS -- Free and Open Source Software feel of instantly downloading and trying out software. I give 5-star in all categories except Value. I'm buying the Pro 12.2 before the holiday season begins and paying the retail price. But, the gut feeling is the Pro is ready for future Android updates and I have a solid hardware capable of running the next release of AndroidOS.

This the best tablet I have ever had.I would recommend this product to all my friends and family.If you would to get one and test it out for yourself.I can see much better with this tablet than my ipad.I can read more better then I could on my ipad.
Very impressive tablet!
This tablet has practically replaced my desktop. Just love the large screen! It was a little pricey but worth it; you get what you pay for. I had a cheap tablet that was junk. I liked that you could add a 64 GB card for more memory. This tablet does so much and I'm still learning new things. I'm partial to the Android operating system. As of yet, no problems. I'd recommend this product.

The galaxy tablet, with a keyboard is now my favorite way of surfing the net. More enjoyable than a mac laptop.
This product has great graphics and is easy to use
from Detroit, MI, USA
This product has great graphics and coupled with the size of the screen, it is very easy on the eyes. I was worried I would not be able to understand the technology but I had no trouble. I would highly recommend this tablet.

I've had an I pad for years (and still do) which is actually a good product, but like the Iphone, it just kind of sits there. When I go for a pad it's always the Galaxy 12.2 now. I love the features and the way it interacts with my Galaxy S5 and all their apps, like sisters. The screen resolution is excellent and performance is outstanding, never a hesitation. Battery life is superb and lasts all day even when I'm playing games and watching movies. I think it would take pages and pages to say all the good things it has. If you like the Galaxy phones you will love the Galaxy Tab 12.2 as much. It just brings everything to life in a bigger format. At first I was worried about not being able to get cellular service on it (only Wi-Fi) like the Ipad does, but now that I have tethering off my Galaxy S5 I can use it everywhere and anywhere. This product is amazing and I highly recommend it.
