Starting at the price of 500 dollars, the new Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 is an incredible design tablet that comes with an amazing screen. The new 9.7-inch tablet also comes with premium specs that can compete with any other high-end tablet on the market.
Despite of packing a large amount of internal storage, this tablet comes with a lighter and slimmer body, being compared with Apple iPad Air 2 and Dell Venue 10 7000.
Moreover, it comes with an eye-watering Super AMOLED screen that is rich in color, sharp and vibrant. Like many other tablets with a large screen, this tablet is perfect for watching videos, playing games or surfing the WEB.
However, the new Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 is the slimmest and thinnest tablet on the market. It is 5.6mm thin and weighs 0.86 pounds. Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 is also probably the best looking tablet on the market, and more refined compared with those who are preferring aluminum builds like Dell Venue 10 7000.
On the right side of the tablet, users will find the volume rocker, the power button and microSD card slot. On the bottom edge, there are located the Micro-USB port and two speakers with a headphone jack. The edges are nicely rounded, giving a good feeling while holding the tablet. There is also a decent space for holding the finger on the side when using the tablet.
The new Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 runs on Google’s Android Lollipop 5.1, but with Samsung’s TouchWiz overlay. However, for users who already use a phone or tablet from Samsung, they will be familiar with the company’s interface.
Under the hood there is an octa-core Exynos 5433 chipset, with 32GB of internal storage and a microSD card that can go up to 128GB. Other interesting features are Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac MIMO, being considered faster than a regular Wi-fi, and Bluetooth 4.1 with low-energy function (BLE). The battery life will last approximately 12 hours, which is less than the 8-inch model, but it is a good amount of time for a 9.7-inch tablet.
