As for its design, the Galaxy Tab S2 is one of the best looking tablets on the market. Even if the previous model of the large screen devices from Samsung had 10.7-inch, it looks like the Korean company opted for a more familiar size, 9.7-inch screen, like other tablets on the market, including Apple. However, users will find the same familiar home button, even if it shifted a little, and it also has a fingerprint scanner.
