Customer reviews & ratings
Love this Tablet.... Samsung has done a great job with this unit. Same price as the new Ipad but has more RAM (3gb vrs 2gb)..more internal storage (32gb vrs 16gb) also has a micro sd card slot to increase up to an additional 128gb. PRO's: Very fast Octa processing ( dual quad processors) I read a few reviews complaining about WI-FI connection speed. Did a speed test and recorded download speed of 125.6 mps which is the same speed as my wired desk top. Comcast is my provider. Outstanding color and graphics. Microsoft Office is preloaded. Fingerprint sensor took a little time to get working but works great. CON's Does not ship with a user manual but a very good PDF manual is available and can be downloaded to a computer. One of the major reasons I like this tablet is the micro sdcard slot. I was hoping to be able to easily switch cards with different data, but changing the card is more difficult than I expected. To open the door to insert the sd card an included special tool is need. This is a tiny tool that has to be inserted into a small hole in the face of the drawer and is extremely fragile. I'm surprised that Samsung designed a great Tablet yet couldn't come up with a better way to open and close the SD card drawer. I hope that they are available because I can see this easily breaking or being lost.
This product is very light, color and resolution is great and came with Microsoft Office apps: Word, Excel, Note, and PPT. Very pleased with that because I will use this with my classes.
Great Size and Feature Set
The Tab S2 9.7 is very versatile. It has great WiFi connectivity. With the addition of a USB to Ethernet adapter the tablet can be added to wired networks. I also discovered that I can charge the tablet from my external battery while using it. Many tablets only charge while using the manufacturers charger or a USB connection when the device is powered off. It works very well as a laptop replacement especially with the addition of a keyboard.
great tablet for everyday use
I use my tablet for most of my electronic needs. Reading, movies, game play, email, and general web surfing. I have owned 5 tablets, my last one was a samsung galaxy tab pro, and this has the best proformance and screen. I use my tablet for about 10 hours a day. Being able to have mutiple apps running and see them at the same time saves me from waiting for one to complete before doing another. Cool running, great support and seamlessly synics with my phone and cloud.
this product has a lot of great features
my Samsung tablet is so easy to use its has great sound and beautiful picture quality It has great features for the gamer or for students going to school or college or for the average person . I have not had any trouble getting my emails or playing my games or shopping on line . If you want a tablet for everyday use or for school this is the one to have.
Fast, thin and great resolution.
Love the new s2 tablet. It's very quick with 3 gigs of memory and the resolution is crystal clear even in the day light. Has office already loaded and other useful apps. The new design is thin and the 9.7 screen is great for easy viewing. The sound from music and video is fantastic and clear. Would buy again in a heartbeat.

Off the Charts
WOWZA! Simple integration...... instant sync. with my samsung cell phone.... WINNER!
This product has a low battery.
Well, Galaxy Tab s2 is a nice product, but one of improving about its battery which is too low. When I charged it a night, it will be lost battery in two hours that is not fitting with the high display. Thus, I really hope the Galaxy Tab can improve more over before.
AMOLED Screen in 9.7" is inferior compared to 8" version
Screen: The AMOLED Screen in the Samsung Tab S2 9.7" is inferior compared to the 8" version due to its sub-pixel layout. The 9.7" utilizes a RGB S-Stripe type OLED display which more often than not Contrasting text often looks fuzzy or ghostly with a purple / green rainbow fringe surrounding the letters. This is due to it including vertical blue pixels with large black gaps. Samsung stopped using the S-Stripe layout in favor of diamond pentile layout after numerous user complaints about the fidelity of the Galaxy S2's screen, so why they would they keep using this inferior technology on their premium Android tablet is beyond me. I've included two pictures to help illustrate the subpixel layout of the 8" and 9.7". Device: This device is fast and its ability to split-screen and pin apps apps on top of unsupported apps is a great addition to Android. Thrilled that Samsung included a MicroSD in this device, however, it is very hard to access. Batter: The battery life is okay at best and could really benefit from quick charge technology.
Overall satisfied with the design and feel
Overall satisfied with the software , weight , processor speed and display of this tab
BTW, I wish they added the Theme Store (that would be amazing)
versatality thats endless
i have the s2 8" ive had it well over 3 yrs. im sad to say the charging port has finally worn out. i love my tablet so much. im able to produce documents like a pro. play games like a wanna be pro and watch movies. make or recieve phone calls you name it this tab is tops. no scratches on the screen still after all these years. great camera. great storage. head phone jack. im going to miss it. ive hardly set it down in 3 years. literally ive used my tablet 10 plus hours a day at least 5 days plus a week. ..
Works perfectly, found my wi fi easily. Beautiful screen, powerful device. Many apps to choose from. So far had no problems with it.
Best tablet ever my son loves it he can't put it down its everything we were looking for in a tablet ... People go out and get you one the best by far I'm going to get me one
really good, fast
Have so much fun, it's easy to used, I can carried everywhere
This is my second Samsung tablet
This is a great tablet it's sleek and lightweight more memory than my first tablet had
Most useful device I've ever owned.
I've had this device since July 2016, and it's incredible. I also own a really powerful laptop, but there are some things this tablet does that it just can't. It has the advanced mobility, offline capability and long battery life that the laptop doesn't have. When I'm on the go, this thing will have you covered. It's also a pleasure to look at with its saturated 1440p screen, and it runs apps and games like a charm. Never lags. It's got all your Google and Microsoft products right there where you need them, and it's extremely customizable. There's also plenty of storage space to last you a long time. I recommend getting a protective case with it, though. This thing's extremely valuable, and your heart will shatter simultaneously with the screen.
Not sure why they thought it was a good idea to take the larger tablets back to the 90s with the 4:3 aspect ratio, but it chops off many apps, and watching widescreen movies in letter box, may as well save the money and buy an 8" tablet. Out of the box 45 minutes, right back in, taking it back to the store tomorrow.
Perfect for me
This is my first tablet of any kind and I love my tablet more than my phone. It is the perfect size for me to take with me any where. The fact that it has Microsoft Office included on the tablet was the biggest seller to me. I love Samsung products because I believe, they are of high quality. I wish I could load my ITunes account on here, but it's ok. I'll get an IPhone for that.
Worth Every penny!
I have been holding off upgrading my tablet for sometime now. I owned a google nexus 7 for the past 4 years and have loved it. Nothing really pushed me over the edge with it to get a new one. Until that is, it was stolen. So I was forced to go with a new tablet. I enjoyed the smaller size of the 7" tablet, but it just wasn't practical to do the things I needed to do with it. So, after months of research and countless reviews, well... reviewed. I went with my Galaxy Tab S2 9.7" All i have to say is WOW! I still can't get over how light it was when i first took it out of the box. I thought i was shipped one of those empty store display models by mistake. It was beautiful, it's honestly the first piece of tech I've owned in a long while that has made me giddy. It does everything I as of it, and doesn't blink. It's powerful, lightweight (you'd think that wouldn't make that big of a difference, but try holding it and reading from it for just 20 minutes, your arms and hands will thank you...) but most of all, it does what I tell it to do, when I tell it. Technology has finally caught up with us. Needless to say, I love this thing and look forward to exploring it and pushing it to it's limits. Impressive Samsung... Most Impressive.
