Frequencies listed for all models to my knowledge will only work properly for data and cellphone on AT&T networks. Any other GSM carriers in US will not function as expected. Us Carriers have full control over data and Voice over cell. These models from non us sources (international) do have a cell phone App that functions as a Speakerphone and depending on your carrier system (GSM/CDMA) allows you to make and receive calls like any normal cell phone with exceptions. Because most foreign frequencies do not match US carrier frequencies, calls and data through US carrier Cellular systems will be sporadic at best. I had the t815 international model unlocked from Amazon. Was T-Mobile UAE version. Phone functioned to some degree, cellular data on listed 3G was non-existent. That device was returned as non functional. All US versions of Galaxy Tab S2 are Wi-Fi only if not connected to a carrier. Carrier version devices are Wi-Fi and cellular Data only. No GSM carrier sells the device with speakerphone capability. All US carriers list Samsung's information on frequencies and also lists frequencies for international versions. That information covers literally all frequencies in the world I assume. That said however, I rather doubt the device could be bought as stated. Very misleading information that makes buying a cellular device as a Tablet and a phone in US a costly and extremely frustrating experience.
Good luck with this information.

The S2 is newer and has basically the same hardware. Ok so the processors are like couple hundred Mhz faster but the S2 is a true octa-core rather than 2 quad cores like in the Tab S. Wont notice much difference there. The Tab S has a better screen pixel density and battery life. I can use a 256GB micro SD and I read that S2 is 128GB. What you will notice is the graphics processor which is 2 generations newer in the S2. Get the S2. I kind of think the 10.5 screen is too big at times. Why would you not always get the newest tech? But if its a big diff. i cash then the Tab S will be solid for the next 2 years at least. All ofther specs are the same or you wont notice. I heard that I can't get marshmallow and you yes but Sprint told me otherwise plus you can always do the boot copy flash method. Oh ..noinfared on the S2 if you are a user.

There would be yourself, the people that repair it and those that handle it during the postage process; not to forget the people who would cut thier feet on the shards of glass left after you smashed it.
Seems the editions seen the to my country Nigeria are different. The Samsung galaxy tab s2 we buy here do not allow multi user accounts as seen in many reviews. Does anyone please have an explanation for this?
Overall it is a good tablet. The only thing i would complain about this tablet is the volume button. After using it for a couple of months my both up and down volume button stopped working.
Dearest readers.This Tsb S2 9.7 is another upper midrange economical tablet with premium specifications written here.Again according to the uncle's Samsung up to dating new policy,Samsung uses the best apps for it smartdevices which is praiseworthy!But One recommendation:This battery size is what smartdevices of other xxx brands have been using!!The right sized battery for this good tablet according to the todays standard must be at least 9200 MAH!!Other using apps with the logical price are satisfying!Thanks the best listening Samsung for reconsideration(based on previous recommendations tothe ununcle)+Thanks all.Justice Rights.Omid12omidvar.Waiting for actions....!!!
