I'm using this tablet and a note 5 phone.
Everything about this tablet is faster than note 5 (which is a great phone by the way)
1) switching between apps and commands are a faster
2) opening apps and commands are definitely more faster
3) using an external flash drive on Table s2 is super fast (almost like on a home pc).
LIST OF PROBLEMS WITH USB flash drive on Note 5 phone:
1) moving multiple files within flash drives takes forever to cut a paste
2) copying or moving multiple files between note 5 and external USB flash drive is super slow!
I don't knownehter it.s a phone application/software that slows down NOTE 5 or whether it has to do with smaller size processor that is being used on phones comparing to tablet. But the major flow is using usb flash drive on Note 5.

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.
