It's a personalized and customizable OS, allowing you to add your favorite apps or widgets to your homescreen. You can even download new themes using the Google Play Store, which offers access to more than one million apps, games, books, music, movies, and more. Android 6.0 Marshmallow overhauls permissions, allowing you to have finer control over what your applications have access to. It also marks the debut of Now on Tap, a context-sensitive update to Google Now that checks your current screen for keywords and then searches for them automatically. Other performance and security enhancements are included as well.

    Samsung Tab S2 reviews

    32GB Galaxy Tab S2 8" Wi-Fi Tablet (2016, Gold) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 218.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ever Clear, fast. I like the new aspect ratio. I had an S2 previously, lost it. Decided I did not need one with my new Samsung spectre 13 2 in 1 with ssd drive (very fast), but ultimately decided I like the convenience of an 8 for quick lookups and it has great apps. Samsung offers HCell app which works better than excel for my Windows excel spreadsheets. It supports for formulas (formulae?). This is the new one with the snapdragon processor and Marshmallow which I also have on my Samsung s5 phone. Super.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size, Great performance I've been using my Tab S2 for over two years. Performance and battery life are still great after two years of use. Durable too, still in great condition. I use it to play games, watch movies, surf the internet, and read novels. My girlfriend liked it so much, I had to buy a second one so she'd give mine back. It is the perfect size. Fits right into my hand, as well as in my coat pocket, and even in the back pocket of my jeans! I considered buying the Tab S3 when it came out, but since there was no 8 inch option, I stuck with my trust S2. The size is about the same as the average novel, so it's perfect for reading. Holding the tablet with both hands, my thumbs can reach more than halfway across the screen, which is optimal for playing most android games, especially emulators. As far as I'm concerned, this the best tablet on the market until an 8 inch S3 (or S4!) gets released.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not a happy customer S2 tablet I’ve had this tablet for just over a year (Xmas 2016) and the battery is done. It will not hold a charge and it takes forever to charge this thing. Keep in mind I hardly use the tablet, so it should be in like new condition. It’s a simple design and for the most part user friendly. But I just have to say it does not compare to the Apple products in my home. I would say this was my last Samsung tablet purchase but unfortunately my mom specifically asked for one this past Christmas. I’m hoping and praying it doesn’t fail her like the S2 has failed me. I’m so frustrated I’m sure I’ll NEVER purchase another Samsung tablet for me or my family. And of course the warranty expired this past Christmas. Thanks for nothing Samsung!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little tablet My trusted Nexus 7 was starting to show signs of aging. It was becoming too slow, would crash, and no longer receives the Google OS updates. I needed a small tablet that I can hold single-handed like a book and read in bed / on the couch, and has the screen resolution for me to enjoy the pictures I take and the CPU / memory to keep up with multiple browser tabs, photo editing while on trips, work related apps and more. I was also looking for SD card expansion slot so handling many pictures while on vacation would be easier. One week in, this tablet looks like it's exactly what I needed. I just hope Samsung delivers a stable Nougat update.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loving my new tablet I bought the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8 tablet which is the 2016 model. It is lightening quick and I use it to play a lot of games (Clash of Clans and Need for Speed for example). Tablet is light and easy to carry. I got a cover to protect it. The tablet can handle multitasking. I like the multiuser ability so that me and my wife can use the same accounts but switch users (kind of like a desktop). It has Android 6.0.1. Battery life is decent can last a day of gaming. The only cons I have is the auto brightness does not work as quick with changes in lighting and that can be irritating. The other con is that the front facing camera is not as good as the new galaxy phones. This can be detrimental for video-calling such as skype and hangouts, but not too bad. I bought it from B&H because of their excellent pricing (299$) and also no tax and free expedited shipping (can't beat all that).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another excellent Samsung product in our family! The Galaxy Tab S2 8" 32 Gig WiFi is a great value. It is fast, has a beautiful display, and in my opinion is very intuitive to use. I also have a Galaxy Note 4, so the very similar interfaces make going back and forth a breeze. I added a 64 gig micro SD card so I have plenty of room for all those pictures and music files that I am used to carrying. I migrated from a Nexus 7" 32 gig when the USB input on the Nexus failed. I was concerned that the 8" screen might be too bulky, but I quickly found that I love it. Bravo, Samsung!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best mix of features & performance I've owned a number of tablets over the past few years, and have had the S2 8" for a few months now. It is built solid, while being very light and comfortable to handle. The screen is nothing short of awesome, and the size is the perfect...large enough for great viewing while small enough for easy carrying around. The 32gb storage leaves me plenty of room for loading apps, and the fingerprint scanner works flawlessly (especially since the android 6.01 update). There is no lag and everything I use loads and runs smoothly. I use mine daily for reading books, watching videos, internet access, games, on-line shopping, and the occasional photo. This is a "daily companion" and I can not think of a single con to this excellent tablet.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little tablet I've had this for about a week now. I got it second hand, but in mint condition. I absolutely LOVE IT! This is replacing an old hand-me-down iPad mini 2 which was very frustrating with its limitations. This tablet is much better. My wife has an iPad mini 4, and she is jealous at the things this can do, and how easily it is done. I have a Samsung TV which works well with this tablet. I will definitely get another Samsung tablet when I eventually need a new one.
