16:9 and HD video are here to stay. But this tablet gives users more choice. I never use a tablet in portrait position unless an app forces me to do so. So this model isn't for me. Good to see 16gb tablets might be history some day. Why no flash for the camera?
Jarret, 03 Sep 2015Why Samsung downgrade the battery? 6000 mAh is betterBattery size can only be determined by the space left over after the tablet is designed.
go home galaxy tab s 8.4 users go back to your own page we dont need your opinion , stop bragging about tab s is more superior cause of the downgrades , btw as a user of tab s2 it feels more premium than tab s and faster, slim and lighter tho. ,for those who says it is an apple copy by its aspect ratio it is a no.. tab s2 dont look the same as the ipad

For may people (including me), this specific game is the main reason for buying a tablet in the first place.
If I may add a few comments, as I own a tab s 8.4 and a tab s2 8.0 at this time. I have read that many of you say the tab s2 is a step back. Though I can agree on a couple points, such as removing the flash on the camera, and the removal of the if blaster does take a step back, the rest is a step forward. I know I did not mention the lowered battery, but I do not notice a difference in battery life from the tab s to the s2. Someone before also asked what chipper these use. The tab s 8.4 uses a Samsung exynos series 5 5420 chipset (32 bit octa core using the arm big/little architecture quad core arm v7 @ 1.3 ghz, quad core arm v53 @ 1.9ghz) with a Mali t628 gpu. The tab s2 8.0 uses a Samsung exynos series 7 5433 chipset (64 bit octa core using arm big little architecture quad core arm v53 @1.3 ghz/ quad core arm v53 @ 1.9 ghz) with a Mali t760. So even though clock speeds are the same, the performance is much better both in pure processing power and graphically for gaming. While I am not a huge fan of the 4:3 aspect, it is neither good not provide bad in my opinion. I can say that side by side the color on my tab s2 is slightly better. The s2 feels significantly lighter than the tab s though in reality it is only approximately 50 grams lighter. So what does all this really mean? I can say that even Web browsing at times on my tab s8.4 was leggy and no I'm not talking about my hsi speeds here. I mean chrome, internet, puffin, whichever browser I used, the interface lagged at times. Over all there could be said that the tab s 8.4 would...hesitate. That being saie, I have not experienced such on my tab s2 8.0 so far. I hope this at least helps a few people.

I think my tab s 8.4 has more feature than this tab s2. Why samsung not upgrading the spec, but downgrading it? It will be more perfect if Samsung add the s pen feature for this tab, i will buy it absolutely.

Seriously? This is consider a downgrade from galaxy tab S. As a gamer i using galaxy tab S i already is unsatisfied with the battery life compare to ipad mini 2 which pack 6000+ mah i dont understand this is SAMSUNG or APPLE ? Why copy so much now? Ipad mini 2 to 3 fingerprint same as tab s to tab s2 are samsung so desperate? IM so dissapointed.
For those who wan to buy galaxy tab S2 please reconsider i would highly recommend u to get Galaxy Tab S which have better feel of holding ,battery life and the ratio of screen is perfect.
