I'm in the market for a new tablet. I have a Note 2 and I love it. I was originally thinking about getting the Note 8. It looks like a nice compact tablet. I was just in Best Buy and I used it for a bit. I then saw the Note 10.1 there also. I like how it has the front facing speakers and it's a bit bigger. So my question, what do you think is a better buy, since the 10.1 is only $70 more.
