    Samsung has a stronghold over the smartphone space, but its grip on the tablet market isn’t as tight. That market belongs to Apple, and making a tablet as good as the iPad is not enough for customers to be lured across to Samsung — the Tab S2 has to be better. Read more

    • 9.7-inch Super-AMOLED display, Thin and light form factor, Octa-core CPU, Refined finger scanner, Proficient 8-megapixel rear camera, Aluminium chassis
    • Lacking distinctive character, Build not as premium as Apple's iPad, Fewer hardware features, but still priced to compete against Apple's iPad

    Samsung’s update to its premium Android tablet line, the Galaxy Tab S2 is sleek, powerful and compelling — as long as you actually need a tablet update. Samsung has somewhat pulled back on its absolute tsunami of tablets of recent years; there was a time when that, taking LTE and straight Wi-Fi... Read more

    I apologise for the rather clinical analysis – let’s be a little less formal. I love the first generation Tab S – it is like a comfortable pair of slippers. The new kid on the block is faster, sleeker, and brasher. But it is an evolution – not a revolution. Read more

    • well, it's definitely bigger than my old 8" tablet, and faster, but .... (see bad points)
    • The trade-off for the size is there is nowhere to actually hold it, so if your fingers stray off the tiny edge, onto the screen, it negates your taps, etc. So have had to resort to a cover that is thick enough to give me something to hold onto. Also has shocking battery life, my old one used to l...

    • Bit pricey still considering S3 and S4 are out.

    • Ease of transferring information from one Samsung device to another. Amount of inbuilt data storage.
    • Battery life is too short. Needs recharging too frequently.

    • It's just a average tablet
    • Samsung bundled software is a pain - would rather have native Android functionality (no need for Samsung to create their own Android settings app!)
