    Awesome at Almost Everything!!

    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.

    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.

    Great Android tablet

    I wanted to upgrade from an iPad Mini 3 for a while, and since Apple seems to be in no hurry to update their Mini line (other than barely updated Mini 4), I decided to look at competitors. I already have an Android phone, so OS was not a factor to me, however as a tablet, I do think now that Android is better option due to its customization and flexibility. Now my tablet feels more like a tiny computer rather than an oversized iPod Touch. Not to hardware. It's Samsung so the build quality is outstanding. I got a Samsung branded book cover for it and it uses a very cool connection system where you don't see any parts of the cover anywhere around your tablet, leaving it minimalistic yet protecting the device well. Screen is the same resolution as iPad Mini, but somehow I can see pixels on Galaxy when I couldn't see them on an iPad. At the same time the screen is much brighter with better colors. Performance of the tablet is flawless, it does everything effortlessly and quickly, can't complain there. Wi-Fi feels stronger, I get much better reception in parts of my house where iPad Mini was struggling. Fingerprint scanner is super quick, probably about the same as iPad's though. Now here is where it loses one star. Battery life. It's not bad by any means, but I'm comparing it as if I was deciding between Galaxy and iPad Mini. iPad has a better battery life as far as I can tell. No tests were done here, just feels like I have to plug the Galaxy in much more frequently than the iPad. Overall I'm very happy with this tablet. Unfortunately there are not too many high end Android options when it gets to tablets, but this Galaxy might be about the best overall tablet on the market right now. iPad Mini is still a very good product, but if you're serious about your computing and want to have something more than just a social media and gaming machine, you owe it to yourself to give a Galaxy Tab S2 a try.

    Good tablet!

    This is a very zippy tablet with ample system space and beautiful display. Under heavy use, it does get a little warm as well as drains battery rather quickly. For example, if making Skype video calls you can chew through a battery in about 2 hours. If 50/50 sleep and active use, I get about 8-10 hours battery life. I use mainly O365 (a lot of eMail and Outlook), Skype for Business, Twitter, XFinity WiFi app and ESET Mobile Security daily, and occasional Google apps like Maps, Search, YouTube, etc. The cameras are average image quality and the speakers are fairly small and poor so plan to use earbuds for some functionality. I was hoping to use as a car GPS but even max volume is not very distinguishable in a car setting. The GPS does work fantastic and the Wifi is great. GPS acquires position quickly and handles interference (bridges, overpasses, tunnels) well and the WiFi gets a strong, solid, fast signal even with weak or far access points. Construction is solid. No concerns in my pocket getting in and out of cars, chairs, etc. as it does not flex and built strong. Light drops are fine too. Screen is bright, wonderful color and amazing contrast. The screen is also very strong and incredibly scratch resistant. Cat game tested and polydactyl cat approved with NO scratches after rigorous fish and mouse scratching high-scores. Touch screen/tactile feel is above average. Lighter taps have good reponse. Swipe and gestures are positive with little error even initially. Price point is a bit high, especially given it's a 3GB RAM memory device with 2kx1.5k display, but the 32GB system storage is spacious.. so look for sales.

    Great power, bad options

    Posted
    FrugalLiver

    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.

    Poor Wi Fi connectivity

    First of all, I like the size and feel of this Tablet. That is the good. The bad is the fact that I, along with many others, have lot's of issues trying to connect to certain wifi. I can connect at home, but cannot connect at my workplace on the open wifi provided by my employer. When it does connect, it disconnects often, and usually does not reconnect. As this is happening, I check the wifi settings and it says that I am connected, but none of my apps will work. I spent an hour with a useless chat and went thru the usual garbage and got nowhere. When I look at all of the other users having this same issue, things like "reset to factory", "manually set up wifi", "reset the time and date", "change routers" etc are what I see. I did not pay $350 for a tablet, and expect that in this day and age, I would have to do anything except turn it on and connect. I owned an Ipad 2 for over 6 years and never had one problem with it. I just decided to try the Android system. Along with the connectivity issue, I guess I am just an Apple user at heart, and am hoping that after the 31 days I have owned, this, that I can get it returned to Best Buy and get another Ipad.

    My First Android Tablet

    I recently switched to Android products after being a fan of the "other" company for years. I now have an android phone and this tablet was my first Android tablet and I love it. I was worried about learning a new operating system but my fears were easily waylaid after just a few days with this tablet. The eight inch screen is just right for me and is crystal clear and bright. It's also very light and easy to handle. It works like a charm and I've had no problems with it. I only get about two days of battery life out of it which is a lot less than my old tablet from the "other" company but then I'm almost constantly using it so it was to be expected. The best thing about a Samsung tablet (as well as their phone) is the fact that even though the internal memory isn't that big (32 or 64 GB), you can add a large capacity MicroSD card that increases the memory greatly. This is much cheaper than paying an extra $100 for every step up in memory with the products from the "other" company. It also makes the tablets and phones cheaper in price. I'm just sorry I waited so long to wise up and go the Android route.
