The new Galaxy Tab S2 is a top of the range tablet that is aimed firmly at the Apple iPad Air 2 market.


It is available in two screen sizes, 9.7″ and 8.0″.The screen has a very impressive resolution of 2048×1536. The screen aspect ratio is 4:3, which is the same as the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 4.
The 4:3 screen aspect works best for viewing web pages and text heavy applications but a traditional 16:9 ratio is better suited for watching movies.

The 9.7″ tablet has a 5870mAh battery while the 8″ version has a 4,000mAh battery, these are less powerful than on the comparable Apple products but in the case of the 9.7″ model it will still allow browsing the web over Wi-Fi for up to 8 hours or 12 hours of video playback.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 comes with Android 5 (lollipop) installed and the 8-core processors keeps everything running smoothly. Samsung have incorporated a split-screen mode which makes multitasking a pleasant experience on the larger screen size.

Other important specs to note are :- 32GB internal Storage, supports microSD and microSXD to easily increase storage space. 3 GB Ram, 1 x USB 2.0, 3.5mm headphone port, Bluetooth 4.1. There is also a 8 Megapixel rear facing camera and a 2.1 Megapixel front facing camera. The cameras are no match for those on top of the range smartphones, the bulk of a tablet make it an awkward experience anyway.

PROS: A very competent tablet, light weight and comfortable to hold.
CONS:  The short battery life was a recurring complaint across most reviews.

Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 – Critic Reviews

90 – Samsung Galaxy S2 Review

‘Apple has the edge on design with its aluminum finish, but the Tab S2 is lighter and its screen is magnificent.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab s2 was awarded a Digital Trends Editor’s Choice award and they found it difficult to separate this from the Apple iPad Air 2.

80 – Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 Full Review

‘It’s a tablet well worth considering if you’ve been thinking about buying the iPad mini 4, as it can contend and sometimes outshine Apple’s tablet when it comes to design and power.’

Pcadvisor were impressed by the hardware benchmarks scored by the Tab S2. They were less impressed by the camera on the tablet but conceded that not many people will take that many photo’s using a tablet anyway.

‘The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 is a lightweight tablet that’s a lightweight upgrade over last year’s Galaxy Tab S. And beyond the thinner and lighter design, it can’t keep up with the iPad Air 2.’

Although techradar liked the light weight and small profile of the Samsung Tab S2 they did not believe that it was a big leap forward from the Samsung Tab S.

The ratio of the screen on the S2 works best when viewing webpages or reading text and it was noted ‘Its size and shape is better suited for everything but video, and for some, that’s a big plus.

Although they thought it was the best Android tablet on the market they believe it to be behind the iPad Air 2.

‘Unbelievably fast and light with amazing display but some shortcomings’

Customer reviews of the the Tab S2 are generally very favourable, the problems arise with Samsung customer support should anything go wrong with your tablet.

Most of these complaints are in fact when the tablet is bought from an overseas seller, the warranty would then not be valid in your own country.
