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.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 review

 

The 9.7-inch Samsung tablet boasts an eye-watering Super AMOLED screen that's sharp, rich in color and vibrant. As the bigger model in the Galaxy Tab S2 lineup, the larger screen is better for playing games and watching video than the 8-inch version....

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 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. In smaller hands, it's not as easy to use as the 8-inch model.

The large, sharp screen of the 9.7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 is great for watching media and playing games at home or on the road.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 (8-inch) Review

 

The smaller of Samsung's two new tablets, the 8-inch Tab S2 is a powerful little slate featuring a stunning AMOLED display and a fast octa-coreExynos processor in a very svelte, lightweight design. While its battery life could be better, the Tab S2...

Gorgeous AMOLED display; Strong performance; Svelte design

Short battery life; Blurry front camera

The 8-inch Tab S2 impresses with its very slim design, gorgeous display and powerful performance, but its battery life is short.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0

 

Samsung has upgraded the Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 tablet from the original Galaxy Tab S in just about every way, including a premium new design, top-of-the-line performance, and a very good camera.

Premium feel. Extremely thin and light. Sharp screen. Powerful processor. Solid camera.

Many new features require additional Samsung devices. Some bloatware. Average battery live.

Performance and Conclusions The Galaxy Tab S2 runs Android 5.02 (Lollipop) and is the powered by the same processor as the Galaxy Note 4 : an octa-core Exynos 5433 chip. That makes it a very powerful machine. On the Antutu Benchmark test, which...

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8-inch Review

 

Steep competition is everywhere we look, including this space where 8-inch tablets can be fetched for under $300 at this point, so the $400 cost slapped to the 8.0-inch Galaxy Tab S2 might seem too high to some folks. Regardless, we're certain a few...

Thin and lightweight design makes it comfortable to use ; Rich with high-end specs ; Better-than-average recharge time ; Good camera performance

Lower display resolution than last year’s offering ; No IR blaster or NFC ; Weaker brightness output makes it tough to view display with the sun presents

There’s a lot to think about if you’re contemplating picking up the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0-inch. First and foremost, you’ll need to know it carries a $399.99 premium to pick up. While steep, it’s not all that surprising. For the price and all, you...

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 Review

 

As competitive as the current tablet market can be, the Galaxy Tab S2 shows why Samsung remains a strong player. While its battery life leaves room for improvement, strong specifications and stellar design make the S2 a versatile tablet.

Samsung uses an excellent Exynos processor for the Tab S2.

The tablet suffers from average battery life.

Samsung's latest tablet offers stellar speed and specifications for home users.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 review

 

The Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 takes a proven formula from Samsung's recent phones and tablets, and brings it together into one solid package. It checks a ton of boxes and is a great tablet offering, but there are still shortcomings — not the least of which...
