    A Great Little PC Alternative

    Remarkable little device with stellar visuals, snappy performance, and an amazingly slim package. While the tablet is thin, the craftsmanship is noticeable and it feels well made. The performance was beyond expectation, and the software zips along at an impressive clip. The visuals are sharp, and the improvement over an older Kindle was astonishing. Before seeing the tablet in action, I believed it to be overpriced. After a few weeks with it in my hands, I feel that the cost is justified. Fantastic tablet that could potentially serve as a PC alternative for cruising the interwebs or watching video.

    We purchased this tablet to go to Alaska and keep a journal and take additional pictures. With limited internet we didn't want to take our laptop and drag that along. I purchased the separated keyboard to use when we were not on the road. The size and weight of the tablet was great. The keyboard worked great at night or when you had extra space to type. Camera on tablet took good pictures up close or mid distance, but you lost clarity when you tried to fully zoom.

    I love my tablet. I have been looking for sometime and wanted an Android. I looked at the 10" too but after reading other reviews, decided that the 8" was the right size. I like how it synced with my Galaxy S4 and copied all the apps. I just returned from a trip that I didn't want to take my laptop and the tablet did what I needed it to do. The pictures I took with it were great and the screen resolution is fantastic. I have watched some live TV on it too when I have been connected to my WiFi. I added a 128GB card to it as well. It has been a VERY worthwhile purchase!

    I had an I-pad and it worked fine. But I needed something that was more like Linux. I love this tablet. I was actually wanting to get to 10.1 but I made a boo boo. But it works well for what I use it for which is just a small tablet that I can check out my media apps. Facebook, Twitter, snapchat, all of Google Apps for just about anything you could think of. I love my tablet except the spell check is possessed I am 40% sure someone is changes to my post just as I hit post. When I go back I wonder if I was even speaking English lol!

    I replaced my older tablet with this Samsung Galaxy S2, when it was on sale. My former tablet was used a lot for taking photos, and I got some really good ones with the large screen and good resolution. This one will be used for photos also, especially when with friends or a group. It is easier than the phone to see the output with the 8" screen, especially with group close-up shots. Another hobby is reading, and the tablet is great for that. Of course the email, news and entertainment uses are nice as well. Overall, this tablet will fill all my needs and then some.

    Great size, great screen, amazing battery life. This makes my endless hours of cardio fly by. I am on this everyday keeping entertained while performing mindless cardio. Also has saved my sanity in numerous flights. I use this for music while cooking. I like the smaller size for traveling, especially when packed into the bags of my motorcycle. Only downfall is wimpy speakers but I'm using headphones or a Bluetooth speaker 99% if the time so it's ok. If you want an Android tablet going with tht S series is with it for the extra processing power and storage.

    This is the best Samsung tablet ive come across. Great display, thin, but cheap shortcuts that really stop it from great. There is no slot for a data sim card , only the financed models through cell phone companies are to have them. Worse, the charger is an inferior micro USB that really takes the shine off this expensive tablet. If you afford to buy this without a cell agreement , you should get unlocked data capabilities and you should get a USB type c charger option , which is the future of charging. This micro USB tiny plug and socket will be broken like all the phones within a year

    Great tablet. Bright screen. OK camera. OK battery

    For the kinds of things I use a tablet for - drawing and gaming mostly - this one works like a charm though I miss the size of my 8 1/2 inch tablet it replaces. Couldn't use a larger one and still easily travel with it daily. The screen is bright and still clear even when it is dimmed for low light conditions. Battery hangs on all day with fairly constant use and a lot of uploading and downloading. I'm not a fan of all the software Samsung insists on adding to the tablet right out of the box, but at least this model has memory to spare to put up with it.

    Poor Battery Life

    I had purchased this before at a well known warehouse club, but returned it after realizing that I would be able to play all of my movies and tv shows on it. After finding a work around to that first world problem, I purchased it again from Big Blue, and also because it was on sale for dirt cheap, but I'm finding that the battery life is pretty poor. After fully charging it, and letting it sit for a few days, the battery had drained 30%. My iPad Air has a much better battery life than that. Maybe I got a lemon, or am expecting too much, but I'm seriously considering returning it.

    When I purchased this tablet, I had also purchased a new cell phone. The salesman was so concerned about the add on and why I should buy from BestBuy that he neglected to tell me that he sold me a non data model. so after a few months of use, at home on wifi, i decided to add it to my cell providers data plan. Well, I then found out that I couldn't because it was a wifi only tablet. Talk about being upset! He also neglected to give me my gift card for the Samsung VR! I will no longer purchase my cell phones, tablets of computers from Best Buy.

    So Far, So Good

    We purchased the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 as a Christmas 2016 gift and replacement for our Google Nexxus tablet that broke. So far, so good! We were accustom to the operating system already and wanted to stay with it. So far, this tablet has been great! The processing system is super fast and the look is sleek and thin, we can take it anywhere. Others have mentioned how slow the battery recharge time is, but we simply keep it charged when not in use and it does the trick. We're also able to use it for a long time before it dies again. I would definitely purchase again.

    I was originally looking at the Nook version of this tablet at Barnes & Noble. Every store I checked were out of them. So I bought the actually Samsung model at Best Buy. I bought this as an ebook reader primarily. It's a perfect size and light weight for that purpose. It also has a beautiful display that makes reading a real pleasure. The new Tab S3 version just released is much larger and less desirable as an e-reader, so I very much like my purchase. If you're looking for a great reader tablet and can still grab this model, I would recommend you do so.

    Great Android Tablet

    I been looking for a new 8 inch tablet since my old LG GPag 8.3 from 2012 started to act up on me. I wanted something in this size but also wanted something which was higher end and majority of the 8 inch tablets on the market were lower end than the LG G Pad. Since the Galaxy Tab S3 game out this dropped in price so I picked it up. Screen looks great, however I am not use to the swap postion of the buttons Samsung loves to do on all their devices. The device is a bit wide to hold one handed but is light and thin so holding it to hands is not a huge issue.

    Small tablet, but it does it all

    For myself I like a smaller tablet, it just fits my style, need for portability and comfortable to hold for long periods of use. It has a super screen and powerful processor. It has amazed me with its abilities. No quality issues, I guess if I want to complain it has to be their lack so far to upgrade the Android in this model to 8.0. I am somewhat surprised by this even though it is an older model offered by Samsung, it certainly has the power and abilities to fly with this operating system.

    I am an apple guy. Then i wanna try something different. Everything else about this tablet is excellent, beautiful display, good size and fast processing units except for two things. 1. there are problems with the battery, it died in one day even in standby. I thought it was the setting i messed up then i reset and didn't install too many apps. It still not good.....Then i ended up give up and returned it. Maybe i got the unlucky one. 2. App store. google doesn't have too many good HD app for android tablet. But this does not have anything with samsung.

    Bought this to replace my Samsung Galaxy 8.9 which could not run android 6.0 Apps, and eventually died. Tablet works well, with a coupla faults which make it a Four: Square harsh-feeling edges w/o a case, speakers along short side (inferior sound when using landscape orientation for video and is 4:3 not 16:9 (less desirable for high-def video watching, Samsung puts some of their own inferior (in IMHO) apps on it (pre-installed) and lastly they invert the "back" and "apps" buttons at the bottom of the device from the standard Android positions.

    Arrived as promised, had to order since not in stock. Had trouble with email on third day. Came to Geek Squad and he was able to reactivate by downloading a yahoo app. Then two days later the tablet went fizzy, blacked out and blinked the logo for awhile, then completely crashed. Lol, very dramatic death. Returned the next day. Best Buy is always great with customer service, which is why we buy our electronics there. I'll probably switch back to an iPad mini.

    Yes, I love my Samsung Tablet! Galaxy S2 - 32 GB, Gold, octa-core. It's lightweight, it's speedy. Great camera. I downloaded several of my favorite apps. I can read documents, reply to email. And I'm a kindle speed reader. The battery is very functional for me. And I paired it with a Flintie keyboard and case that I purchased online. What a great light weight alternative to packing a laptop. If you're thinking about purchase - I say yes. (Unless you are a very large man - then I recommend packing the laptop. :) )

    Great replacement for Samsung Galaxy Tab3 8".

    I was looking for a replacement for my 4 year old Galaxy Tab3 8" tablet and this fit the bill perfectly. The buttons & controls are the same as my Galaxy S6 phone so its easy to go back & forth between them. Much better screen than the old Tab3 8" and surfs much faster. My wife & I purchased one for each of us. She also needed a replacement for her old Tab3 8". The processors in the old tablets were slowing down.The batteries were not holding a charge very well and took a long time to charge.
