At the back is an 8 MP camera module with LED Flash while the secondary camera gets a 2 MP Full HD unit.

Since this is more of a media consumption device, Video codec support options are in the plentiful with H.263, H.264, MPEG4, VC-1, Sorenson Spark, MP43, WMV7/8 and VP8 support at Full HD resolutions. To power all those full length HD video and games is a massive 9,500 mAh battery. GALAXY NotePRO packs 32 GB or 64 GB of in built memory, depending on which model you choose which is useful for storing the high end games and the those non-converted HD videos.

Will you take the leap and buy one? Or would rather choose an iPad Air which is cheaper has better tablet optimised apps and games?
