There's no doubt the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 is an impressive tablet. It's slim, light and has a generally excellent screen, as long as you're willing to put up with a slight yellow tint for the sake of excellent contrast. However, it sits in an odd position in the tablet market. It's the same price as the iPad Air 2, which has superior performance, if worse battery life, and is up to £200 more than the price-yoyoing Google Nexus 9, which isn't as nice an object but has stronger performance. However, if you can't stretch to Sony's £500 Xperia Z4 Tablet and want a high-end Android tablet, the Galaxy Tab S2 is a great buy. It wins a Recommended award.Read more

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 is a lightweight tablet that's a lightweight upgrade over the 2014 Galaxy Tab S. Andbeyond the thinner and lighter design, it can't keep up with the iPad Air 2.
There's still plenty of reason to invest in this reading and web surfing-friendly tablet. Its size and shape is better suited for everything but video, and for some, that's a big plus.
It has stronger multitasking functionality to rival iOS 9 and features that Google isn't premiering until the Android Marshmallow launch. Samsung is slightly ahead of other Android tablets, even if this year's update is as small as the form factor is thin.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 is an upgrade in size and name only. It has a thinner and lighter profile with a new 4:3 aspect ratio, but the specs bump is small and battery life is short.
-Thinner, lighter design
-New 4:3 display
-microSD card slot
-Small specs upgrade
-So-so battery life
-Camera is mediocreRead more

If you're interested in a tablet for reading, watching movies and playing Hearthstone, you have many worthy tablet options, and the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 is one of best. In comparison to its main competition, the Apple iPad Air 2 and the Dell Venue 10 7000 , the Galaxy Tab S2 offers more for your money.
The Galaxy Tab S2 offers 32GB of internal storage for $500 (£399) which is the same price as the 16GB models of the Apple and Dell tablets. (The Dell tablet is not available in the UK) For the equivalent amount of storage, you'd pay $50 (£33 if converted) more for the 32GB version of the Dell, and -- since Apple doesn't offer 32GB models -- you'd have to pay an extra $100 (£80) for the 64GB iPad Air 2. The Dell and Samsung tablets also have microSD card slots to further increase their storage capacity to 128GB.
The Apple iPad is arguably the most popular tablet around and its user-friendly operating system and robust App Store give it an edge over Android models. However, if you haven't invested a lot of time or money in iOS apps, and don't care about the Apple tablet's "cool factor," the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 is just as good as the iPad Air for casual use. If you want a smooth performing tablet with a large screen that's easy on the eyes and wrists, the Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 offers one of the best deals.Read more
