The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 is an android tablet which was released in July 2015. Its price has since reduced but some people have priced it above the real value.
This is not to say that it is worthless, infact the Galaxy Tab S2 is still one of the best tablets available in the market right now.
In Kenya the fair price of Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 is, Kshs. 52,000
Tab S2 Style
The tab s2 is one of the most stylish tablets in the market right now. If you are like me, that is having a keen eye for design, then you are in luck.
This tablet is really thin. Coming in at 5.6 mm, I will describe this as a slice of a tablet.
However, some have argued that this is too uncomfortable to hold. This might be true in the case of phones less than 6 inches is screen size, but that is not the case here. Since it has a wide holding surface, it won’t really slip out of your hands like other phones with aluminum finish do.
What is the screen quality of the galaxy tab S2 9.7?
Its screen leaves no stone unturned. The screen is a Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen.
The fact that super precedes the Amoled alone tell a million things about the screen. The quality is all the way convincing.
With a display resolution of 1536 x 2048 pixels and a pixel density of ~264 ppi the screen is really stunning.
What internal storage options are available?
Samsung has offered two storage options for the tab s2. First comes the one with 32GB of storage. This is for average users who will have a couple of files and apps in their devices. The other option offered is 64GB. This is the big brother of the other storage option. This is quite appropriate for those who have the tendency to download large apps and games from the Google Play Store.
Personally, on android devices, the storage is no big deal since I can buy a memory card and put it in the device.
These days, expansion memory are really cheap in various places. However, you should be careful not to buy fake ones that fail after a week of usage.
In this case the Tab S2 allows up to 256GB of storage expansion.
What is the performance of this tablet?
You can’t really have them all, right?…….Wrong. when it comes to performance, the tablet is really up there with the best.
The ram it offers is 3GB. This enables multi-tasking like a boss.
The ram will easily handle anything you throw at it and switching between apps is easy with no noticeable lag.
