Bottom Line

All-in-all, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 SM-T713 8-inch tablet performs well and is a great multitasker, but the battery life is somewhat low when compared to some of its competitors.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 SM-T713 8-inch tablet has received positive reviews for its improved Snapdragon 652 processor that delivers a good performance, the 2048×1536 (or 2K) Super AMOLED display and the responsiveness of the screen also received praise, along with the Multi Window feature and the 3GB of RAM, which makes multitasking a breeze. Furthermore, its lightweight and thin design also received a fair amount of appreciation. However, many found that in landscape mode, the 4:3 aspect ratio caused movies to letterbox, making the viewing area noticeably smaller. The Bloatware also received some criticism, along with its fairly average battery life. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 SM-713 is solid performer with a gorgeous display, but the letterboxing could annoy those looking to use their tablet for movie watching.
