    Very Solid Android Tablet

    This is one of the best tablets I've ever owned. From the build quality to Android functionality, it's great. The tablet is incredibly thin and lightweight but doesn't feel cheaply made. The 4.3 aspect ratio of the screen is great for anyone considering transitioning from an iPad. The power, volume, and home buttons are easy to press. The back of the tablet is slightly rubberized to that it doesn't slip out of your hands. The screen bezel is very thin so the display area is maximized. The screen itself is great. Very bright, produces vivid colors, and is great for watching HD videos on NetFlix or YouTube. Game play is good as well. The octa-core Exynos processor seems to be handling games (Asphalt 8 and Carrier Landings Pro) just fine. Android Marshmallow (v.6) runs very smooth with no lag. Android 6 supports multi tasking through split screen but not all apps are supported. I usually root my tablets and install custom firmware, but this table runs Android M so well there really isn't any need. I've been running the tablet for about 2 months now and I haven't run into any app force close issues. If you're looking for a tablet that is fast, stable, thin, and lightweight, the Samsung Tab S2 fits the bill.

    Overheating!!!!!

    I bought this tablet yesterday and after charging it used it to download some apps. It was hot so I let it cool down. All I did was go on Facebook and it was too hot to even touch. This heat comes from the upper right area of the tablet on the backside. I went back to Best Buy and exchanged it hoping it was just mine. The new one did the exact same thing. Taking it back. This is the newer model which has a faster processor than the S2 8.0 710. Not sure if that is the problem but I cannot even hold it, it gets too hot.

    I bought this tablet yesterday - 2016 model (SM-T713 - less expensive, better processor and should provide improved battery life over 2015 model). I am thrilled enough with this tablet to take time to write a review. The screen clarity is stunning - terrific resolution, color and brightness, and color and brightness can be adjusted to personal taste. It is just the right size for portability and reading, e-mail, web surfing, texting (yes, you can send/receive texts from it with an app such as "mysms" available via the Google Play store). This tablet is thin, fast, light and nicely designed. I love the fingerprint reader! I was surprised by how well it works (as well as on an iPad Mini 3). The 4:3 aspect ratio of this tablet is really preferable when doing everything but watching movies, and movies still look beautiful on it. You just get the letterbox effect with widescreen movies (black lines above and below), which is a compromise for movie watching but not a deal breaker. It runs the latest Android operating system (provides better battery life and is current for now) and supports dual band wireless ac (fastest WiFi). It works great on my fast 5GHz WiFi network unlike my other two tablets. I feel that this tablet is perfect in every way for my needs except the speaker volume is too low and somewhat tinny sounding for my taste. The workaround is to connect a bluetooth speaker or use headphones when volume and sound quality are important. Other than the sound being lower than I would like, I have nothing negative to say about it. It doesn't claim to support Miracast, a connectivity method I prefer since that creates its own WiFi network between two devices and doesn't require an Internet connection. That is especially convenient when in a hotel and watching a movie on the TV that has been downloaded to the tablet. I will test that, but various other options are available that allow the tablet to connect to a TV, projector or other device. That is not a deal breaker either (and it might work). Choosing a tablet is really very subjective, but this is as close to perfect as they come for my intended purposes. It should be a reliable, quality product that provides a lot of use and enjoyment.

    Battery life is very short for this tablet. For the cost the battery life should be longer. Camara is good.

    Met my Expectations

    I was going back and forth as to whether I wanted a iPad Mini4 or this tab s2. I wanted something that could replace my kindle for reading but do more than a kindle is capable of. Whenever I used my kindle for anything other than reading, it reminded me of how bad Amazon's owe android version is and I wanted a device with good android or full apple. I could not get the deal I wanted on the ipad so I jumped on the savings I was going to get on this Samsung. I love it. It has been a great experience and is very responsive. I have only played a few games but it works well and does not seem to stall out or show signs of hiccups that sometimes happens with these devices if they cannot keep up with the graphics requirements. I would recommend this device to others.

    Great power, bad options

    I bought a Samsung Tab S a long time ago, and have the S5 phone. A just to give you some background. PROS: This tablet has a few things going for it. It is a super power in the tablet niche. The processor and ram are top notch. The screen resolution is great! The weight is phenomenal, so freaking light. 8" is a perfect size. CONS: The multi window is bunk... total bunk. It's not like the old samung where you can just pull it over on any app you are doing. It only works with Samsung approved apps... that's a HUGE no... One thing I always liked was being able to pull up Google on any app without closing it. Spend $400+ on a tab you expect some good stuff. There is no vibration or flashlight as well. Seriously Samsung, it's bigger than a phone, make it at least as good if not better... 3 star, simply because Samsung went cheapo on this and still wants a premium price. Not going to buy another Samsung unless they get their act together.

    The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 is an excellent tablet that is built very well and performs great. The screen is captivating and it's weight makes it a pleasure to hold. I can say after a month of heavy use the tab s2 is still extremely fast and fluid running Android 6.0.1. There are only two problems I have with the tablet. First and biggest issue is the sound. It has only one speaker that is weak and underpowered, at least in comparison to the ipad mini 4. I believe all tablets should have two front facing speakers. It just works best and doesn't seem to difficult or expensive to do. The second and only other gripe I have is although I like holding it because of it's size and weight it's bezel isn't as rounded as the ipad mini 4 and it bothers my hand when holding it certain ways. Overall I think this is a great tablet and would highly recommend it.
