User Reviews 1 User Reviews the colors, the brightness, the sharpness is a fantastic display and everything from Netflix to web browsing to Kindle books and apps look really great on this.
- The Tech Chap
User Reviews 2 We appreciated the sharp AMOLED display, though noted it was dimmer than last year's model. I thought the productivity software features were useful, and performance was generally fast. In my experience, the camera captured good detail in close-up shots. We got decent battery life from the tablet, enough for daily use.

Samsung unveiled its latest Android tablet this month, the Galaxy Tab S2

This slim and lightweight tablet packs an eye-catching display and swift performance into a compact metal frame.

At just 5.6mm thick, the Tab S2 lives up to Samsung's claims as the world's slimmest tablet available today. 

Tipping the scales at a mere 265 grams (9.3 oz), it feels incredibly light in the hand. 

Reviewers uniformly praise its svelte figure, using words like astonishingly thin and noting its featherweight portability.

That skinny body still houses capable hardware, including an octa-core Samsung Exynos processor, 3GB RAM, and a brilliant 8-inch Super AMOLED screen. 

Colors pop from this dazzling 2048×1536 resolution display while blacks look satisfyingly deep. 

Whether streaming movies or flipping through ebooks, visuals impress on the Tab S2.

While some lament the lowered screen resolution from last year’s Tab S, the new model outpaces its predecessor in speed. 

Apps launch rapidly and browsing through Android's TouchWiz interface feels fluid. 

Casual games also run smoothly thanks to the Mali-T760 GPU. Multitaskers should find the performance reliably quick.

The 8MP rear shooter captures respectable detail in close-up shots with vivid color. 

Its aperture could be brighter, but the camera otherwise functions fine for the occasional snapshot. 

On the connectivity front, the Tab S2 offers dual-band Wi-Fi but lacks NFC for mobile payments.

Where it falls short is battery endurance. The sealed-in 4000mAh cell lasts just a day of mixed usage. 

For a device so geared for travel and one-handed use, we expect longer run times from a single charge.

Samsung positions the Galaxy Tab S2 as a premium Android option. 

Early reviews laud its slender build and dazzling display while bemoaning only average battery life. 

For those seeking a lightweight tablet with serious visual punch, the Tab S2 warrants a close look. 

We’ll see how its slender frame holds up against Apple’s upcoming iPad updates this fall.
