I don't know what this company is doing every thing become worse first is the note 5 then the tab s2
Samsung why are you doing this ????
Please listen to your costumers not trying to be like apple
Pros wen compared to Tab S series
Processor and 64 BIT OS
32GB Internal memory
Remaining all !!
Why the hell would this S2 be an upgrade over the S 10.5? The S 10.5 has a bigger screen and still much better resolution. The amount of pixels of the S2 screen is really sad..
This thing should be called an S0 because i would have believed it if they had launched it in June 2013

Baadshah, 08 Sep 2015Hi friends If anyone can reply me which is the best samsung tab S 8.4 , 10.5 ,S2 8.0 or 9.7.... moreIf you use it for reading and surfing the internet, the tab s2 9.7. If you use it for games and movies, buy the 10..1
I got the S2 9.7. On a scale of 1-10 the ipad is a ten, this is a ten as well. I like it more because I like the Droid OS and Google Play. Although whats really cool is if you have an ipad, you can transfer everything from your apple ID to the new Samsung! The screen its just something you see, it just is gorgeous.
Holding in Hand - 10 sleek, and light.
Style good. Although I had to get the black, It will be available in Gold and White.
Another reason I have gone away from Apple is the cases. Apple really kills it because they charge big time royalties on there cases, making them very expensive. And the ones made by Samsung, like the book case is so perfect. Its $60 but really worth it. If I spent that $60 on Apple, there are no cases as good. For example the Note 3,4,and 5. have the Samsung Note Cover that when you open it, its also made of so well it almost gives you the feel of no case at all. With Apple for example the 6 plus is the best phone I have ever held in my hand. And I realized that I am going to have to by an expensive case that covers the entire beauty of the phone.
So I went back to the Note 4, because the flip cover. I cant see the point in buying the 6 Plus, because the greatest attributes are hiding under a 3rd party cover.
What makes this a truly great tablet, is its a Samsung and the fact it comes with full versions of OFFICE!!! and once you register it, you can register it on a PC, and 4 other devices!! giving full versions of each. In the past it was this is close to a laptop. I want to get away from Windows. Windows 10 is horrific. This with the Keyboard is a high end laptop. Specs are better or the same. I am being bold by saying that this is also going to be as efficient as a PC. I think I am at the point where I can finally say goodbye to windows.
Raw speed. I did benchmarks, and the iPad always was ahead slightly but they are both big time. You notice the speed and screen first thing first. It feels like the hardware is so good it just breezes through the Droid system, everything is instant.
There is no Stylus, on the Note A, which is WiFi only, there is one with a stylus.
Its expensive. It depends on what your looking for the 9.7 and the 8.0. Its like the ipad and ipad mini. I am doing it basicly because I traded in an S, for the S2 and the rest of it is on my wireless plan.
It has the SD card slot. No removable battery.
The timing is interesting. the Ipad air wont be upgraded for a while. This unit verses the iPad Air is in Samsung's favor just because they are being very aggressive to be better than the iPad. The reason why the timing is so interesting for me is. I got the free download of Windows 10. I cant believe how bad it is. I would like to convert my PC to another operating system, like Apple or Chrome, this unit will be my replacement for my laptop and PC.
I like these reviews like mine! But the best thing is you go to a Wireless store hold it and run some benchmarks and surf the web. My verdict is, 10.
If anyone can reply me which is the best samsung tab S 8.4 , 10.5 ,S2 8.0 or 9.7. I am thinging to get 1 .Please help me out.
Thanks & GOD BLESS
It would be great if it has a Pen like the Note and if if is voice capable, make voice calls via SIM card (GSM network).
The upgrade (I call it an upgrade) from the wide to the 4:3 screen is the most important change on it, something that made me bying the iPads for so many years. I do consider it as a near future purchase to replace my iPad which I hate in many aspects but the screen ratio.
there are alot of differences in the actual tablet and what is listed here, it is Lollipop 5.1.01, the processor is: Samsung Exynos 5433 Processor, not a quad core. go to the official site and check it out, they are calling it the best on the market as of now. the capabilities of the s2 9.7 blow the doors off the "I" anything. do a little reading and I think you'll agree its worth the money and you'll actually use it.
samrose, 05 Sep 2015Ipad air 2 best than s222222... no way!!!! i pad su cks
AnonD-437264, 05 Sep 20151. Can I open PowerPoint and word using this tablet?
2. Can I open flash memory using speci... morein answer to your flash question:
I've only ever used custom roms but, I would presume as long as the stock android allows the developer section, and you can set stock rom to install apk's from external sources, then there is no reason why you can't install the apk from adobe's site then use firefox beta app to then make use of it.
As thats what I do with my older galaxy s4
Hope that helps
