When you think of a product that has a close resemblance to an iPad, it is the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2. The only difference is the price drop which is not what Apple has in mind. Well, good news for Android fans, Samsung won’t be making devices based on their Apple counterparts. However, they will not be doing more to differentiate their products either.
Here are the basic specifications that you can see and feel the difference but still look at how comparable the Galaxy Tab S2 is from its competitor at Apple.
When it comes to design, Samsung really had considered making it feel a lot comfortable and perfectly fit on both hands compared to its predecessors. As a matter of fact, it is already built to be a lot lighter to comfortably grip in a single hand.
In comparison to the iPad series, the new Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 just weighs about 389g for its 9.7-inch tablet, while it also weighs around 265g for its 8-inch version. This means that the new model has neatly shed some weight off its predecessors.
To conceptualize how light it is, the 9.7-inch screen version has 237x169x5.6mm dimensions, while the 8-inch model has a 199x135x5.6mm dimensions. This even beats the 6.1mm sub-pencil thickness of Apple’s new iPad.
Based from the Galaxy S6 and Note 5 mobile smartphones, the display has been impressive. This is what holds true for the Galaxy Tab S2 as well. This has been made possible with the bright Super AMOLED screen having quite vivid colors with the resolution of 2048×1536 pixels. Basically, the Galaxy Tab S2 dons a pretty sharp and vibrant display capacity that is centered on three reasons, namely Flipboard reading, iPad rivalling, and Web surfing.
Specs and Performance
This unit lays in an Exynos 7 5433 octa-core chip combined with another 1.9GHz quad-core processor having a 1.3GHz quad-core processor to begin with. RAM capacity is still at 3GB. However, this unit doesn’t quite absorb the internal hardware that the Note 5 and Galaxy S6 has in common.
