    A comprehensive review for those “power users” worried about performance vs ipad air, December 16, 2015

    This review is for everyone who reads “tech reviews,” understands them and is debating this vs other tablets.

    I purchased this at best buy as I like the option to make hands on returns and exchanges for service, but I nearly skipped it due to the battery life.

    Let’s he honest, Apple products have a much better setup when it comes to tablets and battery life.

    Apple tends to optimize everything and the iPad air has a larger battery overall.

    Still, this tablet has many the selling points that Apple cannot touch.

    1. The screen itself is absolutely gorgeous.
    The pixel density is 320 vs 324 in an iPad air, but your eyes won’t notice that seeing as these specs are like megapixels on cameras and generally mean nothing past a certain point.

    Samsung screens scream color, this one is the same. I purchased an iPad mini and returned it because the colors on the device were washed out vs the note 4 phone I’ve used since it launched over a year ago.

    There is something absolutely magical about the screen on this device.

    2. Build quality. How it feels in your hands.
    Samsung has been guilty of shipping absolutely amazing screen/processor devices stuffed with innovative ideas in cheap plastic cases.

    This device instead uses a metal edge to create a premium feeling device. The back is a soft rubberized feeling plastic that does not have any flex like the nexus 9 tablet (where you can press down on it and it sinks in).

    It’s weight and feel is unparalleled. When you pick it up you realized that it’s extreme thin thickness is really special. Almost half a centimeter for those who live here in the USA. That is exceptionally thin.

    The buttons click, which is good. They extrude so you can find them in any light level, and I still appreciate the Samsung home button on the bottom, whereas most other android devices have gotten rid of physical buttons a long time ago.

    The only knock is the USB adapter. It isn’t in the center, so finding it when it is dark is a pain in the you know what.

    3. Cpu/graphics/ram
    This device is essentially a note 4 with more ram, which is good. It is a slightly newer revision of the hardware which is also good, but it won’t be at an iPad air 2 or Nvidia shield in performance.

    This is fine because first, the iPad air 2 will have restrictions you cannot do that the tab s2 allows (android is super open to customizable tweaks), and the Nvidia shield will not play some games due to the Tegra processor it uses. Some games just crash.

    This, coupled with a generous 3 gigabytes of ram makes the tab s2 a best in its class in terms of performance.

    You won’t have problems playing games through the end of 2017 and onwards with this, unlike older apple tablets that will become obsolete ad apple updates ios.

    4. Battery – my biggest complaint
    I can’t give this 4.5 stars, but battery would do it. Why Samsung chose a smaller battery is obvious. They wanted to he the thinnest and lightest anywhere. This means that you won’t have the 2+ days of casual use on an iPad, but let’s be real.

    Firstly, the device made a trade off. This is literally the thinness of a small magazine. It is a concession and you pay for the thin nature in battery life.

    Secondly, you can use power saving mode which for some reason isn’t enabled out of the box pm first startup.

    Software will help the battery as android marshmallow is launched, and the wifi version of a tablet won’t have the delays that phones have with updates because there is no phone carrier adding to and testing software, just Samsung updating.

    When this gets marshmallow, you’ll see a pretty big battery boost as this is a feature of Android marshmallow that Google is pushing, increased battery life on all devices.

    Lastly, buy a $20.00 powerbank on amazon with more capacity than the tablet has. You can get a 7000 milli amp battery back and always have hours and hours of power on hand if you cannot charge it.

    That’s all I have to say about battery.

    Overall Review
    Get this tablet.

    This is the best non Apple tablet ever put on the market. If you like technology, and want a great feeling, easy to use and future proof device, this will make you happy.

    If this is helpful to you, please make sure to mark it as a helpful review. Thanks.

    Absolutely great. Fast, great screen, feather light., September 4, 2015
    Homer (Cincinnati, Ohio) –

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0″ SM-T710NZDEXAR (32GB, Gold) (Personal Computers)
    This tablet meets and exceeds all of my expectations.

    Let me preface this by saying that I have an Amazon Kindle, Samsung Note 10.1 and do own or have owned the Samsung note 3 and 4. I am an avid Google/Android fan by virtue of the ability to customize the appearance and the open format.

    I actually own and have this device. I am not someone who read the specs and decided to publish a ‘review” of the device based on what is perceived as problems or concerns. .

    So, ordered it and arrived from Amazon one day after release. Thank you Amazon. I have been using it for the past three hours.
    Initial impressions: Fantastic.

    On the initial boot up, it upgraded to Lollipop 5.1.1 This is the newest and latest version of Lollipop.

    As has been noted, this device is thin and light. It belies expectations. It fits in a jacket pocket. I got the 8 inch as I have a 13 inch laptop and the 10.1 tablet that I also use is big. Those are not a pocket/handbag reader. This fits in my side pocket or jacket and is unnoticeable.

    It has no lag, no shutter, and no problems with instant screen changes. The touch screen and sensitivity is great.

    For those who are concerned that this upgrade may not be worth it, for me, it is a huge improvement. No lag and instant response.

    For android fans, the system asked my Google system password and immediately imported all of my paid and free apps. Everything installed duplicating all of my other Android products and apps.

    There is an interesting problem. I do like the Google Launcher due to the fact that it has information that is helpful to me. It does not “play well” with this system. It does not look good and has a problem with how it integrates. So, if I have not figured it out, let me know. As of now, I am stuck with the touch wiz. Which on this system is really quite good.

    The touch wiz is really not bad. I have accepted it and the new system is so fast and so quick that I will accept the Flipboard over the Google cards for the moment. And, I really only need most of the cards when using my cell phone.

    The image is great. I am not certain why there are concerns about the new format. It is ideal for reading and any news site. Netflix looks great, as does Amazon video and Hulu. Yes, the new format is not perfect for viewing movies, but honestly, that is not how I spend my life. The image is terrific. Blacks and contrast is the best I have seen on any screen. I beats my Note 4.
    I read the review that the finger scanner required a few tries.

    I use a Microsoft Exchange account which require a password for the system under the administrative requirement. This system accepts the fingerprint as acceptable.

    For me, after entering the fingerprint scanner information is almost never a provlem it works first or second time. It works in less than ½ second. I just hit the home button and it is instantly accepted. Absolutely great. A vast improvement from the prior systems used on the Note 4.

    And, the fingerprint scanner integrates with Last Pass. You can use it to enter passwords without re-entering your secure system password.

    So, how can I summarize:
    Fast processor and no lag.
    Google imports all the apps and allows complete integration
    Great screen for video and reading
    No lag and much improved screen response.
    A terrific finger print detector.
    Works with Last Pass and allows access to secure sites with a simple thumb print.

    The only con is a problem with the Google Launcher.

    I have read reviews that it is not a quantum leap above previous tablets. I am always surprised that reviewers on major electronic sites want every iteration of a product to be a huge change. Samsung has made a new format with a great screen and fast processor. The newest software and it works great.

    So, if you are in the market for a new tablet, this one appears to be great. As an aside, the gold color is a bronze/gold and not flashy or over the top. A very nice change from black and white.

    All in all, five stars. I am very happy.

    Best Decision I Ever Made While Buying A Tablet!, September 8, 2015
    AYDV (D.C.) –

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This is one of the best tablets out there currently and I am glad to have ordered it during its first week. After having used it for a while, let me tell you that this is the best tablet for $400. It gives me the most value for money, definitely better than owning an iPad mini 3 or whatever.

    I ordered the 8.0″. It is PERFECT! The thinnest tab I have ever held in my hands, this has the perfect combo of screen size, pixel density and processing power. (and portability)

    If you are an Android user, or if you are looking to get your first tablet, Tab S2 8.0 should be one of your choices.
    I loved the screen and although they are not “retina display”, they are sharp and crispy clear. Apple blows it up by calling the about same pixel density as “retina”. It’s almost the same thing. You will barely notice the pixels.

    For $400, I am so happy I got this high-end tablet that does all my works and is portable and thin that I can slide it in anywhere I want.
    The tablet is fast, fast enough to run a couple of apps and stuffs. It could have been faster I guess, but it is definitely fast enough to keep up with future updates on apps and OS. It doesn’t lag at all. So don’t worry.

    It gave me about 6 hours or mixed usage. I mostly used it for browsing internet and streaming short clips on YouTube and then Spotify the whole day. The tablet is so light I have to wonder how it manages to carry all that battery juice. I plug it in when going to bed, and then its ready to tackle whole another day of use. I have been using it a lot recently. I like it and even if I don’t have anything specific to do, I find myself exploring its many possibilities. There’s a lot android users can get out of this Tablet.

    The finger print reader is awesome! Initially I thought Samsung was trying to copy Apple and wouldn’t really deliver well. BUT as it turns out the finger print is read so well — just as well as those on expensive iPads. I have unlocked it 100 times and haven’t had any misses.

    There’s 3 GB of RAM. That’s what I wanted. It makes running ton of apps in the background easy.
    Rear camera is quite good! Takes fine pictures in sunshine. The front facing camera is okay, not really made for anything besides Skype calls.
    The speaker sound clear but they are only on the bottom so it is not going to sound stereo. I use headphones anyway.

    The best magic happens while watching YouTube videos. Yes you get black edges on top and bottom, you lose about 15-20% of screen to blackness, but that happens with iPad too! It happens to all those tablets that are 4:3 and not 16:9. Personally, it didn’t make any difference to me. The video was so clear on Tab S2 8.0 (WAY BETTER THAN ON MY 1080p LAPTOP) that I enjoyed watching random videos after turning the lights off.

    Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 is a neat little device. You’ll easily fall in love with this tablet. I did.
