Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2 Review | Trusted Reviews

 

Ageing and underpowered internals, paired with a high price tag undermine an otherwise well-equipped ruggedised outdoor tablet in the Galaxy Tab Active 2.

Certified ruggedised design ; S Pen functionality is nice ; Good battery life

SIM/microSD inaccessible without removing back ; Dated internal hardware and software ; Disappointing performance ; Low internal storage

Although well-equipped for the great outdoors, the imbalance of performance and price means the Tab Active 2 only holds niche appeal.

Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 review: Buy now or wait for the pending features?

 

The second-gen Samsung watch adds some features, but many are pending software updates, so is it worth buying now or waiting?

Familiar sporty look with two size options ; Comfortable to wear day and night ; Touch bezel works well ; Easy-to-use software ; Decent fitness-tracking features

Software a bit clunky for sports tracking ; ECG and Fall Detection not available yet ; Battery life only slightly improved ; Underwhelming app support remains ; LTE model bumps up the price

If you’re looking for a round smartwatch that does fitness and core smartwatch features well in equal measures, the second-gen Active is one smartwatch worth checking out.

Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2 review: Is it tough enough?

 

Is the water-and-dust-proof Tab Active2 the hard case Samsung makes it out to be?

Has a SIM slot ; Pressure sensitive stylus ; IP68 water and dust resistant

Not very pretty ; Low quality display ; Weak storage

Although the graphics and display resolution aren’t all that great (no Full HD at £440, Samsung?) the screen is still bright and colourful enough to serve its purpose and the included S Pen is hyper-accurate and a genuine joy to use. So, while it’s not...

Samsung Galaxy Watch Active 2 review: ‘good’ is as good as it gets

 

The best* smartwatch for Android users.

Touch-sensitive bezel ; Offline Spotify ; Decent battery life

Requires too many Samsung phone apps to work ; Bixby ; No good mapping solutions

For Android users, “good” is as good as it gets. I’ll take it.

Samsung Galaxy Tab Active2

 

The 8-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab Active2 is a rugged, pen-enabled Android tablet that's good for business use.

Rugged and waterproof. S Pen works better than capacitive styli. Good video camera. Removable battery.

Slow performance. Low-resolution screen. Not much storage.

The Tab Active2 strikes a good balance between ruggedness and value. It's about the price of a sixth-generation iPad plus Pencil ($419 together), but Samsung's tablet is much tougher and waterproof, with a less loseable pen. That speaks to a more...

Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2 Tablet Review

 

Business to Go. It took Samsung almost three years to upgrade the Galaxy Tab Active. As before, it is water- and dust-resistant and should withstand drops fairly well. LTE and support for stylus input made the predecessor very popular with outdoor...

decent quality ; rigid and tough case ; user-replaceable battery ; S pen included ; support for MicroSD cards up to 256 GB ; bright display ; stays cool

mediocre battery life ; low-resolution display ; slow storage memory

No doubt: The Galaxy Tab Active 2 is a very tough all-rounder. The operating system is smooth and the device should be able to handle everyday tasks with ease. Internal storage is pretty limited, though, and while in theory the system does not require...
