The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 is a bestselling 2015 9.7-inch tablet that received positive reviews for its ultraslim design, colorful AMOLED display, high-end performance, exclusive multitasking features and preinstalled Microsoft Office apps. However, its battery life is below average, its plastic back doesn’t feel premium and the cameras are of mediocre quality. All in all, if you need best looking tablet with class leading hardware, one of the sharpest displays and the most intuitive software features, the S2 9.7 is definitely a winner. However, if you have no use for such specs, there are many value for money options with a much longer battery life.
