Ever since the announcement of the iPad back in 2010, there have been only a handful of Android counterparts that possess that ‘must have’ craze that Apple has managed to achieve for most of it’s products, be it the iPad, iPhone or Mac.
Samsung wants to address this issue, or so it seems, with the launch of the Galaxy Tab S2.

Released in September 2015, Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S2 tablet is the successor to last year’s Galaxy Tab S. Pricing wise, the Galaxy Tab S2 goes up against HTC’s Google Nexus 9 and the Apple iPad Air 2.

It features a 9.7 inch Super AMOLED display with a QXGA resolution and a pixel density of 264 ppi. Sunlight legibility is extremely good and the tablet is very comfortable to hold and use, thanks to the sizeable side bezels which let you comfortably grip it without accidentally touching the screen.

The Galaxy Tab S2 gets a much needed upgrade in the build and aesthetics department. It is thinner, lighter and houses a light weight metal frame with a plastic back, as opposed to the plastic body which we saw on last year’s Galaxy Tab S.

This tablet comes packed with Android 5.0.2 Lollipop with Samsung’s TouchWiz skin on top. You get the typical Samsung apps such as SideSync, Smart Manager, S Planner and the Galaxy App store. Samsung also preloads the Microsoft Office Suite, Skype and OneDrive. To top that, you also get 100 GB of free OneDrive storage space for two years!

On the UI front, considering that Samsung wants you to use this tablet for serious stuff too, they’ve included a split-screen mode that allows you to to multitask between two apps (fortunately, most of the stock apps and a handful of third-party apps can be used this way).

Overall, the interface feels smooth and we didn’t encounter any major lag or stutter during the animations. This tablet is also well suited for enthusiastic readers. The low weight and slim body make it very comfortable for reading eBooks for long durations.

Under the hood, this tablet is powered by an octa-core Exynos 5433 SoC backed by 3 GB of RAM. You also get LTE support for Indian bands.

Additionally, this tablet houses a nano-SIM slot which allows you to use this device to make calls (if that’s what you need a tablet for). There are two memory variants: 32 GB and 64 GB both of which are expandable upto 128 GB.

At the back is an 8 megapixel camera with autofocus. This camera captures a decent level of detail in it’s photos and also allows for QHD (2560x1440p) video recording. There’s a 2.1 megapixel camera at the front which allows 1080p video recording and captures some decent selfies.

Samsung have also included a fingerprint sensor on this tablet, which makes a lot of sense and makes it very easy to unlock this device. The fingerprint sensor is embedded within the home button, as is the case with several smartphones nowadays.

This tablet is available in 3 colours: Black, White and Gold.
