jolikur, 22 Apr 2016will this device will receive the marshmallow update?according to GSMarena's news, the rollout for marshmallow has begun for the s2 8.0 :) -- like, 20 hours ago.
I have an immediate need for a tablet, so I was just looking into this
I was looking at this and the Teca LTE-830 4G. That is 2/3 the cost of this tablet now-a-days (~200 vs. ~300), has a nice 16:10 ratio still and 4GB of ram. Much worse screen (is fhd though), heavier/older build, worse camera, and a "2.0ghz octacore" which I cant imagine what it is. The LTE may or may not work in the US (most chinese devices dont have the same antennas we use in the US).
The reasons I went with the samsung instead of the teca are: they are both reasonably cheap, and the extra gig of ram would be nice but not essential. the processor is likely a Helio P10 and about ~10-20% slower. the display is not nearly as good. and most importantly, I can't find the manufacturer, nor a review online. And I have no idea if it will _ever_ get an upgrade to Marshmallow or Android N soon.

Hi. I want to buy SAMSUNG Galaxy Tab S2 8.0. But is there multi user function?
This device was good when I bought it newly and after an update from Samsung,it got crippled.It's now tripping off and back on more than fifteen times a day and it's only just a month old,I hate taking my device to the service except for something really serious because in the past when I took my other Samsung devices to the service they all came back scratched or mis-handled,After paying for a device,they don't care about it anymore.If you are thinking of buying this device,think properly so you don't feel the way I feel now.
why this device released with 32bit android whereas its cpu can support 64bit os.
Does it upgrade to 64 bit os in marshmallow?
Aldokrist, 11 Mar 2016What about the Camera it doesn't has flash. Is it still good at Night? No. If you are an exigent photographer, you will not appreciate the photos taken at night. In otherwise, at day, the photos aren t bad at all in my opinion.
Lia, 12 Mar 2016Hi can this phone make out phone calls and receive incoming calls? No. Unless it saids 3G model which is not this case.

I want this to be my main phone, so I want to be sure it doesn't run out of juice during the day. How much % is left at the end of the day? Thanks for answering.
OMG WTH i have the samsung tab s and now looking at this one the tab s2 is a downgrade. you get less talk time on the upgraded version, less overall battery life, less cpu power, less lol no flash as they have taken this off, less screen size, how can they make less and call it an upgrade. i have been playing with the tab s2 for a a week and can not see any difference compared to the tab s in fact i feel i have been had, done over, been seen coming again by Samsung. just like the samsung S6 that made away with everything that made Samsung attractive. dont waist your time and save a few quid stick with the samsung tab s and you will have a few quid to spend at the pub or on the wife :)
I used it for bout 6 months it feels freak I hand and very smooth performance
Anonymous, 30 Mar 2016pls..How good is the battery of the LTE model?/ Approximately how long does it last on average?The battery is the only disappointment i have with the tablet. With heavy/medium use i get just over 1 day use.
I have a Lumia 640XL from Microsoft since I wanna try a Windows phone coming from a Sony Xperia Z3 that got busted after using it for almost a year. Specs wise it's a downgrade but performance wise I didn't feel that it was a downgrade but I miss having an Android device. Having another smartphone with an Android OS is useless so better yet buy myself a tablet. This tablet is perfect for me! The size, the look, the performance, everything suit my taste! I am going to get it in 2 weeks once I receive my paycheck! :)
