    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.

    The tablet is thin, yet sturdy. It has great speed and a great screen. I personally enjoy the 8 inch screen. I was using the 7 inch Samsung galaxy and maybe with getting older and my eyes getting weaker, the 8 inch screen is easier to read and still manageable to hold easily in one hand. As I get older, I may write the same things about a larger screen in the future. The higher resolution adds amazing clarity and the faster processor runs program flawlessly. Would definitely recommend this tablet.

    I used to have an iPad mini, and when I switched phones, I found myself getting more and more frustrated with the iPad, so I started looking into Samsung's tablets, and this one had the best reviews, for what I needed it for. It is mostly for entertainment, games, streaming shows and such. I much prefer the Hulu and Netflix app via this tablet. I love the multi-tasking function and being able to split the screen. I will never go back to an iPad. For price and functionality this was a great buy.

    I bought this after my son threw my 2012 Google Nexus 7 tablet into the bathtub one day during a tantrum. This tablet and screen are bigger and brighter. I think the keyboard on the Nexus tablet was better and more intuitive, with better swipe typing capabilities. But this tablet is fast, has a great weight and feel, and an outstanding touchscreen. It multitasks very well, and I often jump back and forth between Gmail and Firefox, Adobe Reader, and Google Keep for notes with no issues.

    I got this tablet for myself after my first galaxy tab 2 crapped out 3 years ago, the battery was dying out and i was in need of an upgrade. Decided to go with this one cause i couldnt imagine settling for any other brand than the galaxy family. Super portable, i take it with me everywhere and fits in my bag. I mostly use my tablet for studying literature and reading, so far i have no complaints.

    Buy it if it's on sale

    I got this on sale for $250, and I'd say it's an ok value at that price point but certainly not for the full price of $400. While it's fast and lightweight, I find it somewhat difficult to read websites on here. I've tried adjusting the brightness, size, etc, but the weight of the text is too light. I would have gone with the larger size tablet for better readability if it had been available at a lower price, but I didn't have this problem with my last 8-inch tablet (a Kindle Fire HD).

    If I could give less than 1 star I would DO NOT waste your money on any Samsung tablets They are really poorly made, if you can use it at all they go into loop mode turn on and off multiple times. Sent back to Samsung and they "repaired" it, which means I still have the same problems -- waste of money. I would note the tablet is only 8 months old. When the problems started it was in the first month and nothing has changed even with their "repair". Buy something other than Samsung--

    This is actually the second Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 that I own and still this is my favorite android tablet besides the 2013 Nexus 7. I love everything about it, from the slim size to the beautiful screen and also battery life. It is very little and has a solid build. Now watching or reading anything on that screen is AMAZING!! I would highly recommend to any one looking for an android tablet. Since it is older you can also find them used now for cheaper as well.

    I have extensive experience with non-Andriod tablets and have taken a multi-year hiatus from Andriod. I was never happy with previous Andriod stability, but this has been rock solid. Had an application which required Android and made this purchase a necessity. Solid tablet, like the ability to expand with an SD card. Good screen resolution and overall power. Has been stable for drone flight and networking utilities which push the boundaries on other tablets. Happy with the purchase.

    Salesperson at Best Buy was great. Had a problem 4 days after purchase and called Samsung tech support and they are a joke. After telling them my problem and answering questions they said they could not help me with an answer. Told me I had to take it back to place I bought it. When I got home two weeks later I went back to Best Buy and they solved it for me. For that reason I would not buy another Samsung product. I do not have a problem with the service or people at Best Buy they were great.

    I have had the tablet for a few weeks now. I love the clarity of the screen. I love the light weight. It is big enough to watch and enjoy a movie and small enough to fit in a purse or bag. The gold border is the best part as it gives a frame around the border of games and movies. The battery lasts around 5 hours which is not long for some people but just fine for me. I put a 128 gb card in which added to the 32 gb giving 160 gb memory. It is fast and has loads of storage.

    Tablet freezes with kindle application reader. Originally planned to get a Kindle, as I explained in store that reading would be the primary function for me, but was talked into this one instead by the representative. Also doesn't seem to hold a charge long even when using reader mode and having brightness turned all the way down. Not sure if I just got a lemon or if they are all like this, however I will be returning this item. Pretty disappointed with the performance.

    So i have owned and researched many tablets over the last few years. I now have a Ipad mini and a samsung s2. I purchased this for my wife and i'll tell you the graphics are better than any on the market, the machine itself is a great tablet. Whatever you think of Android or Samsung, when it comes to use and quality, you will not match this in the 8 inch tablet category. while I love my Ipad Mini retina, the emoled screen on this tablet is awesome.

    Yes!.. I prayed before I made this purchase. Because I wanted to make sure that I was not being frivolous with all the claims they were being made regarding its quality and performance since I already had a tablet. but as it turns out I really did not have a tablet because this S2 outperformed my wildest dreams and imaginings. Samsung you have outdone yourself!! Graphics.. Sound.. Responsiveness.. Memory size.. sleekness.. It has it all

    Purchased the Galaxy S2 9.7 to replace a 4 year old Motorola 10 inch tablet. After using the Samsung for a couple of days I am disappointed in the performance of the product. I think the price of this tablet should be closer to $75.00 and not $399.00. The apps are slow to open and the touch screen has a bit of lag to it. The speakers are poorly placed and the sound quality is extremely bad...very tinny. I will be returning this tablet to Best Buy this weekend.

    Best feature: Light tablet

    The best feature of this tablet that it is very light and can be carried easily. The picture quality is excellent. But the only downfall of this tablet is that it runs the battery fairly quickly as opposed to the earlier models. I can go 2 to 3 days without charging my Tab A tablet but with the S2, I have to do it almost daily.

    I've had mine since last fall. It's just a bit too wide to fit in a jeans pocket but still very carryable. Excellent hardware, beautiful screen, fingerprint reader works well. And a couple of months back, it upgraded to Android 7.0 (Nougat). I'll also recommend the Galaxy Tab S2 8.0" Book Cover case. It has snaps that fit into the S2 to hold it very securely while maintaining a very thin profile. The case is expensive, so watch for a sale.

    I love this tablet,don't know why I waited so long to buy it. bought it to play games mostly (free slots) and it is not only great with the slot games, but I can do so much more. I can check my emails, search the web. It is a perfect size, fits in my purse and the battery lasts a long time, even when playing games. Very, very happy with this purchase. FYI the Geek Squad was great in setting it up for me and teaching me how to use it.

    I'm slightly familiar with Android operating systems, and Samsung brand. This tablet has expandable memory, which my prior tablet (not Samsung) did not have. The display is big enough to read, not to mention looks fantastic. Easy for me to figure out new (to me) features, still exploring all of them. Was excited to find I could print from this tablet (wirelessly send to my existing printer). Very, very happy with this purchase!

    I bought this tablet to replace an old iPad mini. The resolution is so so clear and the response time is awesome....so fast. Love it. The smaller mini size is perfect for me, because it fits nicely in a purse and is not too heavy when reading for hours. Setup was so easy as it it copied all my apps, settings, and even Wi-Fi passwords automatically from my android phone. I found this tablet easier to use than the iPad.
