TechSpot: Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 Review

Samsung is touting the Galaxy Tab S2, which comes in 9.7- and 8.0-inch variants, as the thinnest tablet on the market. The high-end hardware you’ll find in this device, including the Exynos 7 Octa SoC and 2,048 x 1536 Super AMOLED display, make it a serious competitor to the iPad Air 2 and latest iPad Mini. It might end up being let down due to software, but at least Samsung has essentially gone all out with hardware.

At 5.6mm thin for both the 9.7- and 8.0-inch models, the Tab S2 is a good 0.5mm thinner than the iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 4. That half millimetre mightn’t sound like much, and in isolation it’s not, but it helps make the Tab S2’s untapered slate-like design feel extremely thin in your hands, even more so when you consider the size of the device overall. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 is the first tablet I’ve seen this year that made me want to try out Android on tablets once again.
