Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 LTE Tablet Review

 

Insanely slim. With a more compact chassis and a different screen ratio, the new Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 aims to outdo its predecessor. Our in-depth review will show whether this is a success despite – or because – of the shrunken dimensions.

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

only average performance, heavy throttling, color changes from flat viewing angles, only Micro-USB 2.0, no NFC, IR transmitter of the predecessor is missing

The highlights of Samsung's new tablet are the restrained, yet sophisticated and very slim construction as well as the new 4:3 Super-AMOLED screen. It can easily keep up with its excellent predecessor and convinces with a great contrast ratio, good...

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 review

 

Samsung's Galaxy Tab S2 is the best Android tablet you can buy.

Absurdly thin and light ; Sleek look ; Bright colorful screen ; Long battery life

It’s almost as expensive as an iPad ; Lacks premium all-metal build

For Android users, Samsung’s high-end tablets have always been the logical alternative to Apple’s iPad. The Tab S line started on a high note, and the second-generation is as excellent as the first. The bright sharp screen, thin and light body, as well...

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...

This feels almost completely obvious but the Tab S2 9.7" is definitely the most compelling tablet that Samsung has released to date, and I think it's a good overall upgrade over the Tab S 10.5". Over the course of the review I've found some aspects of...

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 gold, 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 gimmicky...

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.

AT&T Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 review: World's thinnest Android tablet offers less than Samsung smartphones

 

Given the new low cost Amazon Fire tablets focused on the media experience, it's tough to find a reason to buy an expensive Samsung Android tablet that offers less than Samsung smartphones.

Fabulous vivid display ; Thin and light design ; Fast LTE performance ; Responsive tablet experience

Limited battery life ; Terrible multi-application implementation

Galaxy Tab S2 review: A worthy counterpart for your smartphone

 

Samsung's second-gen tablet series knocks it out of the park again with solid performance and a lighter-than-Air chassis.

There are still people out there who shoot photos with their tablets. I’m not happy about this, but I’ve learned to accept that this is a thing that happens in the world. And anyway, it’s not like tablet makers are discouraging this behavior. Samsung...

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7

 

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 is a great Android tablet for multitasking, but you're paying a sizable premium over the smaller Tab S2 8.0.

Great multitasking features. Premium build. Good camera.

Pricey. Lots of bloatware. Average battery life in testing.

Conclusions The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 is one of the best Android tablets on the market. It's incredibly thin and light, has useful multitasking features, and excels at media playback. But its high price and average battery life make the 8-inch Tab...

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 is last year’s tech in this year’s tablet

 

Things are getting awkward in tablet land. On the consumer side, we've run out of ideas; maybe we use them to watch video, "babysit" our kids, or travel with them when it's too annoying to carry a...

Thinnest tablet on the market ; Gorgeous display ; Upgraded processor

Weak battery life ; Same old cameras ; TV-to-Tab feature limited to Samsung TVs

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 (9.7-inch) Review

 

Great review. Quick thing to note regarding battery though. Although web surfing battery drains faster than iPad Air 2, video playback battery performance slightly exceeds the iPad Air 2. Important factor if primary use will be for video consumption...

Brilliant and colorful AMOLED display; Swift octa-core performance; Can easily stream content to and from Samsung TVs; Shockingly thin and light; Microsoft Office apps included

Below-average battery life; Plastic back; Mediocre cameras

The Tab S2 combines awesome power and eye candy in a jaw-droppingly thin and light design, but its battery life falls short.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7-inch Review

 

Although we've waited more than a year at this point, we're seeing a successor to its popular and premium Galaxy Tab line. With the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7-inch, they're ensuring that they'll remain relevant, as this full-size offering packs a dose...

Thin and lightweight design ; Minimalized footprint makes it compact for a full-size offering ; Snappy processing performance ; Accurate Super AMOLED display

Short battery life ; No IR blaster or NFC ; Weak brightness output makes it tough to view display with the sun presents ; Underpowered internal speaker quality

Being that premium tablet it’s sought out to be, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7-inch comes in at the customary starting price of $500 for the base 32GB Wi-Fi model. That’s not too shabby considering it has the svelte construction, smooth performance,...
