Thanks Samsung to bring this size and of aspec ratio 4:3. I like to read newspaper along with books like many other. Keep up the good job with this weight. As for those who do not like this aspec ratio please stay on your gadget and do not be selfish and let other enjoy this size and this weight.
I have owned samsung galaxy tab s8.4 LTE for a year.i loved it alot and waited to see its next generation tab s (2).Now by knowing its release and its specifications i am completely disapponinted due To its Spuarish build due to which its not possible to handle it by one Hand ,smaller screen resolution with 310 to 320 ppi only as compared to 359ppi.The camera is still 8 mp/2.1 mp.Hoping that it will be improved and will record 4k but its not.I was hoping for a snapdragon processor howerver it is improved but very little.No expandable storage option with microsd.The battery has also been disappointingly dropped to 4000mah from 4900mah.All in all according my point of view will might be a better tab for a reader of books or bussines men.SO I WILL NOT UPGRADE TO THE NEW TAB S 2 BECAUSE MY TAB S 8.4 IS BETTER THAN THE NEW ONE.DISAPPOINTED BY SAMSUNG and DESIGNERS THIS TIME.OVERALL.... LOVE THE SAMSUNG.
This doesn't differ so much from my Tab s 8.4 LTE
Shame Samsung nothing new .. just a bit faster processor than an already fast one & square 4:3 CRT-like design than modern useful 16:9 ... Shame Lame
And just 8 M.pixel ... may be 16 or @least low 13 M.pixel be Good enough ... & slow motion video " 240 -120 Fps @ 720p @ least " ... & numerous modes in camera like prolonged exposure setting like an option " open shutter till 4 seconds @ least " .... & 3D shooting " double lens " would be interesting >-<
& No S-pen yikes .. wasted screen sheer size " which is also a downgrade from my 8.4 Tab s "
Not to mention battery low Capacity "4000 Mah from 4900 " fsssss & pffffffff
Not Innovative ... So ill keep My very Good Tab s " one " until Samsung change their managers & designers & un-innovative Technicians " not leveled to intelligent engineers" >-<
I also own Tab S 8.4, but compared to Tab S2 8, It still be better than this new version both spec & dimensions. A lot of feature is decreases or not avaliable any more as Resolution (lower), Battery (lower), LED Flash (no more), Infrared Port (no more), Drop Box cloud storage (no more),...
Let's see what's price in my country?

TearLight, 02 Aug 2015lol you don't need a tab for taking pics , vids. buy a phone bro much easier for filming , com... moreLOL your opinion does not speak for all of us, we tabbers love to take our tablets anywhere and a little love on the camera department wont hurt, why buy a separate device if you can own an all to one machine. just like when you phone users wish for a better camera, remember the early days of camphone where people wished for a better camera and most people advised "you dont need a phone to take pictures, buy a digital camera!" where are we now?

Am I wrong or last year's samsung tab s 8.4 has better specification, especially better battery and screen resolution?
I have the tab s 8.4 and execpt for 1440p video and 32/64gb memory, my tab is actually better. Especially the higher screen resolution. If I hwd 64gb internal memory instead of 16, that would have been great, but even niw, no reason to upgrade.

Persisky, 26 Jul 2015I really like to see the person who is responsible for the design of tab s2 in person. I alway... moretalk for yourself ! Samsung is still number in smartfons and they make only what people want.It's that clear !
Persisky, 26 Jul 2015I really like to see the person who is responsible for the design of tab s2 in person. I alway... moreNot sure if he design the tablet too but his name is Kevin Lee. He is already pulled down from his position in Samsung design team. He is the guy who design that band-aid Galaxy S5 back panel and Note 3 leather back. He let out his anger by stating that Samsung will never be able to design without him. And I might exagerated the story a little. Just a tiny bit.
smaller dan tab 8.4,is perfect for holding with one hand for everybody
