What are the notable differences (Besides Screen Size) between this Tablet and the Note 2014 Edition 10.1? Feb 18, 2014
The battery life on the 12.2 is noticeably longer. It easily outlasts the 10.1 doing similar tasks. The 10.1 doesn't have bad battery life though. The 12.2 is heavier by a little over 200g. The 12.2 has usb 3.0 host on the right side so file transfers to and from the 12.2 are much faster than the 10.1. The 10.1 has a 2.0 micro usb on the bottom. The 12.2 can also multitask with four windows versus only 2 on the 10.1. This is due to the larger screen though. *The back on the note 12.2 seems a little more leather-like than the back on the 10.1. It seems softer and a little more grippy. This isn't really much though. *The metal surround on the 12.2 looks a little more like metal than that of the 10.1. *these last two differences are only noticeable if you have both devices side by side*
The $699 tablet is the Note Pro. The $599 tablet is the Tab Pro. The only hardware difference is that the Tab Pro does not have S-Pen capability. Also, the Tab Pro does not come with a 12-week trial subscription to the NY Times. Other than that, the two models are the same. So if you don't want or need the S-pen, you can save yourself $100.
Can microsoft office run on this tablet? Mar 22, 2014
no, nor do you need to because the tablet comes with a full version of Hancom Office Suite, which gives you word processing, powerpoint and excel. Hancom Office is also compatible with all word/excel/powerpoint files. you can open your existing Office files (word, excel, powerpoint) and continue working on them and save them. ... "Hancom Office Suite is new, but it feels unbelievably familiar. Powerful apps for word processing, spreadsheets, and presentations with support for common file types allow you to manage all your work on the go." ... http://www.hancom.com/en/product/office_android.jsp
What features does galaxy have? Mar 14, 2014
Star systems and nebulae dust are the main visible features of galaxies although dark matter and black holes make up for over 70% of the mass. Seriously do you want to be more specific? The main features are listed under the amazon product pictures. Smh.
$100 more bucks for an extra 28~gigs? ouch. might as well just buy the 32gb edition and then pick up a Sandisk 128gb SD card that comes out soon (yes, it's compatible) and get more for your money. just my opinion though!

Can a keyboard attach to this? Mar 9, 2014
In addition to the OTG solution mentioned, you can also use a Bluetooth keyboard without any cables or adapters. (edit: after I typed this, I noticed that C. Carmona already added that info to the original answer via a comment. I'm leaving this answer in case someone doesn't notice the comment and read it).
How long are you guys finding the battery takes to fully charge? My note pro 12.2 takes all night or 8 to 10 hours to reach 100% from 30% - 50% . Mar 10, 2014
make sure you are closing all your apps before charging back up, press the "Recent apps" soft button (left of the home button) then press close all. clear your notifications as well, swipe down then press X under the sound bar. I've noticed that turning off wifi also cuts down on recharge time and greatly increased standby time when the tablet is not in use for hours at a time. i'll update this post with more info when i charge mine from 5-10% to full, as i haven't brought it down that far yet. keep in mind that this is quite a large capacity battery (9,500 mAh) hence the 13 hour use time without charging, compared to the recent iPad Air's 8,800 mAh/10 hour battery. its going to need some time to get back up to fully charged.

Does the screen feature palm rejection as in I can rest my palm on the screen while i'm taking notes or using the pen? Feb 20, 2014
Yes, I have owned the tablet for a week now. When writing notes with my s-pen, I have no problems resting my hand directly on the screen. I love this tablet.
