Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 review

 

This ultra-light Android tablet is an iPad challenger

Thinner, lighter design ; New 4:3 display ; microSD card slot

Small specs upgrade ; So-so battery life ; Camera is mediocre

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 is an upgrade in size and name only. It has a thinner and lighter profile with a new 4:3 aspect ratio, but the specs bump is small and battery life is short.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8 review

 

We've tested the new Galaxy Tab S2 with an 8 screen to bring you our full review of the worthy iPad rival.

We loved the Galaxy Tab S2 since the very first time we got our hands on it back in August, and upon further investigation and after spending more time with it we just love it even more. It's a tablet well worth considering if you've been thinking...

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 review

 

Small but mighty, Samsung's mini Android tablet is seriously good

Ultra-portable size ; Pin-sharp screen ; 13 hour battery life

Patchy sound

The best of the small­ Android tablets, with a fantastic display, loads of power and excellent battery life.

  (Rating Hidden)

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 Review

 

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 is one of the best Android slates available, with a brilliant screen and premium appeal.

+ Brilliant Screen ; + Lots of power ; + Fingerprint scanner

- Average battery ; - Weak camera ; - Plastic back

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 is an impressive attempt at challenging the iPad. Samsung’s tablet is the equal or better of the iPad Air 2 in almost every way, from screen, to performance, to features.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8in review

 

A fantastic screen and superb build quality make this Android tablet a competent rival to the iPad Mini

Excellent screen; Attractive design; Good battery life

Slightly outdated internals; Unnecessary pre-installed apps

This compact tablet ticks virtually every box for premium devices, with a superb display and a premium feel.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 LTE Tablet Review

 

Shrinkage. Samsung's new 8-inch tablet looks just like its larger sibling, the Galaxy Tab 9.7. The internals are very similar as well, but can the device offer the same amount of performance despite the reduced dimensions?

very thin and light, sophisticated build quality, microSD-card slot, AC Wi-Fi & Bluetooth 4.1, fingerprint scanner, precise touchscreen, video recording in QHD, telephone functions with earpiece, smooth handling, great display with excellent contrast...

significant throttling in the stress test, only Micro-USB 2.0, no NFC, IR transmitter of the predecessor is missing, GPS not as good as on the 9.7-inch model, color changes from flat viewing angles

Like its larger sibling, the Galaxy Tab S2 9.7, the smaller version can impress us with its sophisticated and slim design as well as the new 4:3 Super-AMOLED screen. The panel manages both: It can produce very rich and natural colors. The user can...

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 Review

 

The first Android tablet I ever used was the original Galaxy Tab. It was a 7" Android tablet running Android Froyo, and it seemed a lot like a large version of my Galaxy S. In hindsight, it wasn't a very good tablet, but Samsung was one of the first...

In the end despite its issues the Tab S2 9.7" is probably the best Android tablet I've reviewed, if only for its incredible lightness and amazing display. Unfortunately I just don't think those things are enough to justify the $499 price tag, and the...

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 ( white, 8-inch)

 

Running Samsung's Android -based TouchWiz user-interface, the tablet is similar to the company's flagship Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge smartphones, which also utilize the UI. Though it lacks an exciting or cutting-edge feature, the absence of a...

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 has bright and vividly colorful screen. Its rail-thin design is comfortable and ultracompact. It comes with 32GB of storage, a microSD card expansion slot and fingerprint scanner. Battery life is long.

Unlike previous models, there's no IR blaster.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2's brilliant screen, plentiful storage capacity and slender build make it a great tablet for everyday use at home or on the go.
