Samsung’s Galaxy tablets continue to evolve and become better than its predecessors. The new Galaxy Tab S2 is an excellent device that establishes the versatility and strength of Android tablets. An overview of this impressive-looking device will give a fair idea about how the tablet performs and functions.
How the tablet looks
Measuring 9.7 inches, the Galaxy S2 has a large display screen. However, its super-slim design of 5.6 millimeter thickness makes it lightweight. The device weighs a mere 392 grams. Although the device feels lightweight and portable, the materials used for building the device do not feel frail or flimsy.
The Galaxy Tab S2 has a metal cover on the front, while the back cover is made of plastic. The volume and power buttons appear on the right side of the device, and the center button along with the Menu controls are positioned in front of the Tab S2.
You can expand the internal memory storage capacity in the device with a microSD card by inserting it in a microSD card slot found on the right side of the tablet’s body. At the bottom of the device, you will find a micro-USB charging port and two inbuilt speakers.
Running on an eight-core processor and 3GB of RAM, the tablet performs incredibly well. As for the software, the device has Android 5.1 running at its core. While the tablet features an array of great features, it has a few drawbacks, too.
When the tablet runs high-end apps and games and is put under heavy multitasking, it continues performing with dexterity, unlike other tablets that tends to become sluggish at this stage. Power is not an issue when operating this tablet, but the battery charge can run for 7 hours at a stretch, which is not good when travelling for long hours, reports Australian Business Traveller.
CNET reports that the Galaxy S2 9.7-inch tablet is the slimmest and thinnest tablet ever and has a sharp screen with rich color details. The only drawback is that children or adults with smaller grips will find it difficult holding its large-sized display screen. The price of the tablet starts at $500.
