It might come as a surprise, but while the Note 8.0 is a lot bigger and heavier than the Note II it feels a little more manageable in the hands and certainly isn't likely to get too heavy too quickly. The official weight of the 3G-equipped version is 338g, making it 26g heavier than an iPad Mini at 312g.
Essentially, the Note 8.0 is a tablet version of its other category-spanning Note devices and continues the user experience well, feeling less awkward in the hands than the oversize chassis of its smaller siblings.
