    A very nice upgrade

    It was time to go ahead and upgrade from my old Samsung tablet, as the battery was not lasting very long even though I had replaced it recently. I was skeptical that the larger, 9.7" size was all that necessary, but I'm glad I sprung for the larger device... The extra real estate is great. The faster processor and larger memory, as well as the updated Android OS are also worthwhile upgrades. I should be set for another few years.

    Very Happy with this Tablet

    I bought this tablet because the battery on my Galaxy 10 (2014) which I bought in 2013 is beginning to die. This is slightly smaller and does not have the pen, but I am very happy with it. It does all I want it to do whether take care of email, down load info , stream xfinity programs or read a book. Very good resoluiton and sound also. Was a good purchase--bought it on sale so the price was right too.

    An iPad Air, but Android

    This is a great, light tablet with a stellar screen. 4:3 aspect ratio is great for reading or use in portrait mode, but the older 16:9 Tab S might have been better for video or general landscape mode use. Also, the shorter width of this in landscape means that keyboards of the same width, like the official Samsung keyboard cover, are much too cramped to use at normal speed and ease. So this may be better for consumption than production. When this is on sale, no need to spring for the Tab S3 unless you really need the stylus. This is still more than fast enough and presently ships with Android Nougat.

    Samsung - Galaxy Tab S2

    I really enjoy using this tab. I bought it on black Friday at a discounted price, otherwise I could not afford to buy it. The battery life seems to be shorter than other Samsung tabs, but this is a lot thinner also and easier to hold and carry. The S2 is very responsive and screen is excellent. The screen is optimized for reading not for movies as it has a full format (4:3) - not a wide screen (16:9).

    Does not live up to the reviews

    Frankly I'm a bit surprised by all the positive feedback on the S2 9.7 inch tablet. While it is fast, thin and light - I will give it that - the screen actually hurts my eyes after very little use due to the "waviness" of its motion that apparently no one else is sensitive to. At first I thought it was just the one I bought, but I looked at the same model in several stores and they all suffer from uneven movement while quickly scrolling vertically, which really diminishes my experience from an otherwise crystal clear display. I also have a major gripe against Google/Android. Why they seem to find it necessary to remove useful features and options that would give the end user more flexibility and control over their own devices is beyond me. Similarly, it makes no sense why Samsung's own keyboard would change so drastically from device to device. If I've been using a Samsung Galaxy S series phone for years, then I'm used to certain symbols being paired with certain letters of the keyboard. So why move them around or remove certain ones altogether on the Galaxy S series tablet?? So I have to tap more buttons to access them and slow down productivity? Why take away buttons from the phone's email app, for instance, when there's even more real estate for them on the tablet's screen? Dumb. It honestly makes me angry that some executive at the top approved these obviously senseless decisions somewhere along the way, and IMHO ruined what could have been a truly awesome tablet. Sadly, because no one else makes a "better" tablet (though Asus comes close), and because I hate CrApple even more, I'm pretty much stuck with this if I want a tablet, which I do. Despite all its flaws, it runs ok for the most part, and is built pretty well. Since the 8" version at least doesn't have a wavy screen when held vertically, I'm settling for that and taking this one back. I'm still giving it 3 stars for overall quality and speed, clarity, and average everything else.

    Great,but I thought it would be like my galax Note 10.1, did not want to stray far from what I was familiar with. WAY different, but good, except for the screenshot ability. Had to download a pain in the behind app for that,because pressing the power and volume button at the EXACT same time proved next to impossible for me.I hope I can figure out this device. Wish things still came with paper manual. Really fast btw. Bought it because my research said that it would be a great successor to the Samsung Galaxy note 10.1. Secretly wish MINE still worked. It is good device overall. Would recommend it.

    I researched quite a few tablets before I purchase this one. I believe the ultimate selling point was the compatibility that it had with my Samsung Note phone. I love my tablet it is extremely user-friendly. I actually purchased a Samsung keyboard to go with it. It's multi-functional, I have all the features of a laptop with the weight and ease of a tablet. It truly is a great product not to mention it's cute too.

    Excellent travel device

    I replaced a previous tablet due to aged operating configuration. I had very little learning curve, The screen is clear and sharp, The weight is less than my previous tablet, enough to feel a difference in my carry bag. SD card tray is the only thing I miss from previous, This device has a pin tool to push into a hole. Not a huge problem since I store it on the charge cable. Overall it is great.

    My Galaxy Tab 10.1 finally gave up the ghost and after reading all of the reviews of different tablets, I decided to go with the TAB S2 9.7. Glad I did! Great replacement tablet and the battery lasts so much longer. It is obviously smaller but not so noticeable compared to the 10.1. Weight is better and the color & graphics are bright & great! Easy to setup and move all of my previous apps, pictures & more to the new tablet.

    Wife Loves Her New Galaxy S2

    Got this one for my wife for our 29th wedding anniversary, she loves it. She has been using one of those things named after a piece of fruit, no names please. It's the functionality of the S2 that makes it easier for her to got to the web when playing her online games or checking here emails and messages. It has great video and is way faster than her other thing. I know she is going to get more out this S2 and the AOS.

    Best Android tablet for the price

    I considered the Samsung Galaxy S3, but I did not consider the enhancements worthwhile considering the additional cost. After several weeks of use, I feel my decision was correct. I mainly use it for browsing, reading, videos (very good sound and excellent screen!!!), and games. Processor and RAM are more than adequate for such activities. By the way...I purchased an "Open Box" unit and no problems whatsoever.

    Best tablet I've ever owned

    I got this to organize my work and school stuff easier and found myself using this tablet more than my laptop. I switched over from apple and will never own another Apple device. This tablet is just as fast if not faster than my iPad air2. Thinner and lighter to boot! I can do more than I ever imagined on this and will always recommend this to friends.

    Actually replaced my laptop. Has everything I need. Does everything as expected. Has MS Word, Excel and PP. Battery life reasonable. User friendly. Can't find enything wrong yet. Still need to practice my writing skills but it already reads without a problem. The auto correct is too good to be true. If you write fast it may change your message, so be careful and check what you write. So far I am enjoying using it. I recomend it to everybody.

    Samsung tablet is a value choice

    I went to Best Buy to get an apple tablet but ended up choosing the Samsung Galaxy S2 10 inch tablet instead. My wife has the Apple iPad and it is very nice, but this tablet has done everything I could ask, and at a much, much lower price and it works with my Samsung phone, too. I use it all day long and the battery life is good. The screen image is great, many good apps available, and good camera. All in all, a great value!

    I bought this in place of Kindle. I have been a faithful Kindle user since they first came out, but I was really tired of not being able to get apps from Google play. My husband has a galaxy tablet and he really likes it so I got one too. My one big complaint is that it freezes a lot. It does it on every new app I open, but not right away. About 5 minutes into it the screen freezes for a few seconds then starts again. It does this about 4 or 5 times in a row then it's fine. My kindle never had this issue even with the same apps. It can be frustrating but not enough to return it.

    I love the ease of using this tablet. Not heavy. Just right. Being an apple fan for years I was not sure the switch would be great BUT IT WAS! Not as expensive as the apple products made it very appealing. My choice did not disappoint me. Would recommend to anyone. Even beginners. I would recommend purchasing a case to make it easier to hold on to an not drop. Will not hesitate to purchase another one in the future.

    I'm always a generation behind the "latest". That being said, when I got the Tab s2 on sale, I jumped at it. Sure, it's not the fastest, and it doesn't have the massive battery of the s3, but it works just fine for me for Social Media and watching CBS All Access and whatnot. It also works wonderfully for reading Comics. The screen is beautiful. I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

    Bought this for my mom for Christmas. Her old tablet was outdated and running very slow. She has a Galaxy S7 and I set this tablet up for her to mimic her phone and she absolutely loves it! It is much easier for her to look at this bigger screen while browsing the web or playing games at night before bed. She loves it and I would purchase another one if the need presented itself!

    The quality of Samsung electronics are EXCELLENT! This tablet is fast, sleek, and easy to use. I will only purchase Samsung Products because of the quality, price, and service. I have all Samsung Products in my home (Washer and dryer, Tv's, Tablets, Smartphones, Ear phones, and watches). My next Samsung purchase will be the Smart Refrigerator. Samsung beats any Apple Product.
