    A very solid tablet

    I have an iPad, but I was looking for a smaller tablet. Since I recently purchased an Android phone, I thought I would look at Android tablets. While I was in the store, the Samsung rep thoroughly explained the various Samsung tablets available and did a "compare and contrast" with iPads. The bonus was that this was an open-box item that saved me some cash. After using it for about a month, I'm completely satisfied with its performance.

    High points: very thin & light, excellent screen, fingerprint reader makes it easy to stay secure but sign in quickly. Low points: TouchWiz interface is really dated compared to the latest vanilla Android releases, and several basic Android apps such as Contacts are "not compatible"?! No quick charging or wireless charging. Overall: good value for the $249.99 holiday sale price I paid. Would not pay any more, certainly not list $399.99.

    Best Android tablet I ever seen.

    This tablet is lightweighted and it runs smooth as my Galaxy S6 phone. The display have richer colors than my old tablet, but I felt the LCD display of my old tablet looks brighter. I was using a 8.4 inch Tab Pro tablet before and I have a good impression on Samsung tablet. The battery life is much longer than my last one, but the volume from the headphone jack is not loud as my old tablet. This is the best android tablet I seem for now.

    Overall this is a fabulous tablet. It is fast and powerful and has a great screen. It is thin and lightweight and we love it. I would highly recommend this tablet to a friend. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because my wife has said it has shut down on her a couple times unexpectedly. This has never happened to me so I'm not sure what to make of it.

    I didn't even know they made 8-core processors! I do everything with this tablet now. I run at least nine programs at once between games, college homework, and electrical career. This tablet can do it all! Great graphics too! Just be sure to get a good protective case for it! I got the Zagg 7 layer protective glass, and a griffin brand protective casing. I dropped it a couple times and without the casing it would've been toast in the first week!

    I wanted a smaller tablet that would would be easy to hold and/or carry, but also one with a processor that would make it work fast. It is just the right size and works very nicely. I have had no problems with any of the functions of this tablet. I would have liked one that had its on internet connection, but I thought the difference in the cost was not worth it and this particular Samsung tablet did not come with that option.

    This was/is my first tablet, works well, have some issues with response to starting stopping recording and taking of photo's, not sure why, at times it's response is super, but then at times not so good. Maybe temperature may effect the sensitivity. I do have this issue with some other screens or devices, wish it had a setting to adjust this like some phones do May trade in for the S3 that's to come out, it will have a built in stylst.

    I wanted to replace my 10.1" and checked a lot of different brands and sizes. Ultimately, I test drove this model and was impressed. Since buying the table, I bought a cover at a well known book seller which was designed for their version of the same table. The high resolution screen is great for reading or movies while the battery lasts a very reasonable amount of time - depending on what you do with it of course. So I'm a happy owner.

    Ok Tablet

    Its an OK tablet, ran good for awhile but started having problems so they replaced the Processor. Its having problems again so I brought it back in, now waiting to see if it has the same problems. I had bought one before this and they had replaced it with this one, I wonder if it is the model? So 3 times I have had to deal with this. Anyway as long as you have insurance they will work on it or I would not buy it again.

    This is a decent tablet, but for the price, I'm sure Samsung could do better. Go back to the 16:9 aspect ratio on your tablets. Stop trying to follow Apple and make them follow you Samsung. Most tablets are used to watch videos, movies and view pictures. Most of which now use the 16:9 aspect. The battery life isn't that good either. Everything else is satisfactory.

    Many of the reviews mentioned issues with overheating, however I have not had any of these issues in the several weeks I have used it. Also, many who purchased had issues with bloatware, but I have not noticed any serious slowing of the tablet. I should say that I don't mind the bloatware, I just ignore/don't use it. Honestly, the tablet is faster, better looking, and more useful than I had thought, which is great.

    I finally decided to get a tablet and although I looked at apple I decided to go with the Samsung tablet since I've only worked with Samsung products till recently when I had to switch over to apple as far as my cell phone is concerned. With this tablet I didn't have to loose anything when putting stuff over from my phone to the tablet. It's light weight, small enough to fit in my handbag, and easy to use.

    Replaced my tab a with this S2. The pros are simple. Lightweight, quick to boot, easy to handle. The cons, not so good. Battery runs down quickly, even after turning off a lot of apps. That sort of defeats the purpose of having this tablet, because I do a lot of work in cafes and on the road, I don't want to get out my laptop. I would recommend this, with that one warning.

    I am still learning all the ins and outs of the tablet. I am not tech savy and wish all products would come with a manual. Besides that the only complaint I have so far is that it takes long to boot up, IMO. I like the fact that you can add more storage, you can download pics (with adapter) from camera (great for when I am on vacation) and I like the fact I can have a split screen and resize them.

    Disappointing for Samsung

    I was quite disappointed with this tablet. As an owner of the Samsung Galaxy tab s gen 1, this was a bit of a letdown. I didn't see any real upgrade, and the screen seemed dimmer than my older tablet. Also there was no screen mirroring with this one. Because this tablet was close in size to my older model Samsung Galaxy tab, I thought I wouldn't feel any difference, but yes, that small inch or so, did make difference to me.

    The look is so Crisp

    I love the clarity. My previous tablet the Samsung Tab 9.7A, (I enjoyed and blessed my grandmother with it), was in an otter box defender case, which made it too heavy for my purse. What a difference a few inches can make. I love the compact size, even in a case it fits nicely in my purse. The camera(s) is unbelievable, the pictures are so clear. The lighting doesn't bother my eyes. I love this tablet....

    Tablet will not turn on and won't charge. Tried to get help on the Samsung website and they gave me a link that doesn't work and aren't answering an email I sent. Went to the store to see the Samsung rep and he wasn't any help either. But I was most pleased when Best Buy could help me and their Geek Squad currently has the tablet and is seeing what they can do.

    I received my Galaxy S2 tablet as a gift to replace my iPad Mini 2 because it became slow I gotta to say this was the best gift I've received in a while this tab is fast really fast really thin and the screen resolution is really nice. The only downside to this Galaxy Tab is the screen is not as responsive as I hoped it to be but all an all great product.
