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 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 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...

Samsung Galaxy Tab Active2 review: Rugged Android tablet built for business in the field

 

The Apple iPad is a superb tablet for home, office, and school use, but isn't great when you are outside working in the dirt, gravel, slime, and other harsh elements to get work done. This is where the new Samsung Galaxy Tab Active2 drops in and helps...

Solid design with crisp, clear display ; S Pen support with hefty stylus ; Removable long-lasting high capacity battery ; microSD expansion card slot ; Water, dust, and drop resistant ; 3.5 mm headset jack
