I'd like to buy this tab, which is better either to get it from samsung outlets or from local mobile shop? What's the pros and cons?
Anonymous , 26 Aug 2016I used mine as cellphone. Work just fine. But not really convenient due to it's size. If you have used the Tab S2 as a cell phone, could you supply the:

Nishantha, 10 Aug 2016Today I got Marshmallow 6.0 OTA update for my Samsung Tab S2 - SM-T715Y. very beautiful interface. Hows it working? I postponed my installation since ive read a lot of issues with this marsmallow? Pls share me how its going on your tabs2 t715y, thanks!
FYI, I just added a (long) comment on the Tab S2 9.7" conversation (may be delayed for moderator review). Basically asking to hear from anyone who has successfully (or unsuccessfully) tried to use their Tab S2 LTE version (or other tablet?) as a cell phone. I have an (now old) Galaxy S-3 with AT&T in the USA but would love the added size of a tablet for ease of interacting with the full range of smart phone applications, including phoning and texting.
Notsoglad, 17 Aug 2016Got android 6, installed it, bought a SD card, and discovered, no possibility to turn SD card ... moreThis from Samsung through Android Authority;
Samsung decided not to use the Android Marshmallow Â“adoptable storageÂ” model. We believe that our users want a microSD card to transfer files between their phone and other devices (laptop, tablet, etc), especially the photos and videos they shoot with the camera.
With adoptable storage, first of all the card may be erased the first time it is inserted into the device. This behavior may be unexpected by many users and we donÂ’t want our users to lose their files. Second, once Marshmallow starts using a card for adoptable storage, it cannot be read by other devices, so it loses this ability to be used for file transfer. Adoptable Storage is also primarily targeted towards emerging markets where devices with only 4-8GB of onboard storage are common. We think that our model of using microSD for mass storage is more in-line with our ownerÂ’s desires and expectations for how microSD should behave.
Got android 6, installed it, bought a SD card, and discovered, no possibility to turn SD card into internal memory. There you go.

Most likely the workmanship of your cover, there is a certain working distance/material used to enable the proximity sensor to work.
If not, 3rd party covers like Mercury or Goosperry won't work even.
Today I got Marshmallow 6.0 OTA update for my Samsung Tab S2 - SM-T715Y. very beautiful interface.
So to sum up, in the same price (today both 715 and 719 cost the same) which one is better?
9x10 = 91, 21 Jul 2016you cant use the tablet whille charging. you need to turn it offBecause you are using a low powered 500mah charger. Swap it for a proper USB charger and you can charge and use at the same time.
macky2green, 12 Jul 2016So what's the DIFFERENCE between the 2016 and 2015 versions aside from their product model cod... moreThe specs explained it all... 2015 has exynos CPU and mali GPU while the 2016 has Snapdragon CPU and adreno GPU. Performance wise, you can google it.

Promise u wil love dis.
I use my Samsung Tab S2 8 lte to make standard GSM calls no problem, just inserted the sim from my phone and works perfectly all the contact, call and message apps were pre installed it's like having a 8 inch phablet. All my contacts and text messages were installed automatically using my Samsung account. The sim card has 5 gig of data to use on 4g unlimited texts and calls. I use a Sony SBH52 Bluetooth device to take calls so as not to hold the tablet to my ear when out in public. Sony have an App which you meet to download first, the setup was simple. I love this tablet. I've also linked my Note 4 to it so now I can make and receive calls and text messages from 2 mobile numbers it's like having a dual sim phone. Great for splitting business and personal calls also good if roaming. I'm not sure if the phone call functions are available if the tablet is purchased through a mobile network. Mine is unlocked so perhaps that's the difference. I've also noticed that unlocked LTE versions have a speaker above the Samsung logo and the network locked 4g versions don't they look like the WiFi only versions.
Amazing device. Fast & lots of space. Even the Samsung retailer has given me FREE 16Gb of Microsoft card Class 10 & tampered glass. 7 days of using, no regret. It cld be better if it comes with rear flash from low light photo.
