    It sure is good looking and portable but lack a bit behind in features. But if someone wants to get some cool features without spending more bucks, then it is a good choice.

    I didn’t like it miuch. It’s pretty much the same as Galaxy Note 2, just two inch more.
    Moreover, the resolution is not even close to the new retina iPad. So, not makes an interesting gadget to buy. -_-
