Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 review

 

Overall a very good tablet, but it still doesn't quite match up to its main rival...

Sturdy build ; Sharp, bright screen ; Good battery life ; Hi-res audio support

Colour balance not quite right ; Some stutters when gaming

Samsung’s flagship tablet does plenty right for Android fans, but the Apple’s iPad Air 2 still gives it enough to think about

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.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 review

 

This ultra-light Android tablet is a budget 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 represents an upgrade in size and name only. It has a thinner and lighter profile than its predecessor, 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 review: A small and skinny tablet with a supreme screen

 

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 is so small and light, you'll forget it's in your bag -- or hands.

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 8.0 review

 

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 is the best compact Android tablet there is

It may be a bit slower, but the Galaxy Tab S2 wipes the floor with Apple's tablet when it comes to battery life. In our video-playback battery test, the Samsung tablet kept going for 14h 7m, while its Apple rival gave up the ghost after just 10h 43m.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 Review: In Depth

 

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 Review: We review the 9.7-inch model of Samsung's 2015 business and entertainment tablet, another powerful-yet-portable device.

Incredibly thin ; Powerful hardware ; Screen well suited to productivity ; Long battery life

Plastic heavy design ; Deja vu

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 is a solid choice for anyone after an entertainment or business tablet, thanks to its sharp, vibrant screen, slim and light design, smooth performance and excellent battery life. However, it doesn’t really do anything...
