Awesome tab and Microsoft Office apps work fine.I switched from my note 10.1 2014 edition and although the specs are almost the same this aspect ratio is better for documents. Cause the captivate buttons don't get in the way.
KK, 09 Dec 2015I simply love it compared to my previous samsung note10.1 2014 edition.hhhhhh so do i
I have bought the SM-T815Y model. I have to say that is really disappointing as it can't run MS Office, as it is NOT SUPPORTED. How come a company promotes for technical specs for a product without even bothering highlighting the regional difference...TRANSPARENCY!
I have a sumsung galaxy tab 2 7.0 with a halfmoom bluish thing moving non stop without getting to apps
mony, 02 Dec 2015can this tablet be used as phone since it take 4g card?Yes, i use it with SMS and calls w/o problems
Ajju, 30 Nov 2015Guys I plan to get one of these. But which is better- 8 or 10 inches?? Pls let me know. I'd say that it is more of a personal preference but then I'd just be using a cliché.
Although, seriously, I think you are going to miss not getting the larger version if you're already debating between the two, so I would just go with the 9.7".
Serious question:Is it possible to fit the tab s2 9.7 into front jeans pockets to use as a phone? I can fit a tab s2 8.0 into my front jeans pockets easily so I was wondering if it is possible to go even bigger?
Second question:Does the LTE version of the tab s2 9.7 come with an earpiece for phone calls like the LTE version of the tab s2 8.0?
Thank you guys for your help.
Anonymous, 27 Nov 2015Going for HTC....best brand ever used....very disappointing with Samsung product....especially... moreCalling B.S. The lowest price for a used S2 tablet on the Amazon Marketplace as I post this is $379.99 (ironically, a full $50 more than the Cyber Monday price for a brand new one which is $160 off the $499 MSRP).
Perhaps nobody wants to buy from you because you've proven an unreliable seller?

Going for HTC....best brand ever used....very disappointing with Samsung product....especially with s2....selling it now for quarter price....still no one wants to but it.
bola, 25 Nov 2015Samsung is very disappointing with this tab s2. The aspect ratio is not as good as 16:9. The a... moreit lacks nothing all the gimmicks you have mentioned is just for filling the specs sheet.
Tab S2 is the next gen tab in terms of UI and functions. better get a physical experience at neary by samsung store and come back to conclusion.
Samsung is very disappointing with this tab s2. The aspect ratio is not as good as 16:9. The absence of flash for the camera is discouraging, the absence of stylus pen is more than disappointing. No infra red.
The worst is that I have no where to buy the older versions such as note pro 12.2, tab s 10.5 etc. The price of tab s2 is just too much with all it lacks.
I just have to wait if Samsung will improve on this s2 rubish and if it doesn't, I will everything about Samsung for life. It's painful that i sold my note 10.1 and now faced with this discouraging tabs at so much high price
Superb aesthetics, generally satisfactory except the presence of the irremovable bundled apps like LINE, Flipboard and many other apps that runs in the background and I do not use ever and would never will -- which causes unnecesary battery drain.
I hope Samsung would fix this because it is better than iPad in many ways and it would be a shame to lose out on battery life.
Give us the option to opt out from the bundled apps and/or disable them altogether in a convenient interface.
I need it mainly for work, manual reading and light entertainment.
Generally 8/10; the cons are the bundled apps and the poor battery life (for its class of device).
Anonymous, 15 Nov 2015Will this tablet receive Android Marshmallow? YEAH. Android Marshmallow update on the way
AnonD-465872, 15 Nov 2015Tab S have features...like Infrared and bigger battery capacity and optional Bluetooth keyboard.Kindly note, Tab S2 experience is entirely different from Tab S and other gimmick such as IR blaster etc not at all a big issue here. Tab S2 Battery capacity optimized with regard to the 5433 chipset infact with fully charge Tab s2 withstanding for a whole day including usage.
Over all its an next generation tab when compared to tab s !
