Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 SM-T810N 9.7 Inch

Samsung-Galaxy-Tablet-S2-SM-T810N-32GB-3GB-RAM-UKRight now, with it not long being released, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 SM-T810N 32GB is one of the most expensive Tablets to buy in the UK. And probably in most other countries too. It does have a lot of hype surrounding it and a lot of technology packed into its thin frame. So is it worth the considerably high price tag? Well, like all high-end Tablets, it has some great points and features and some that are not so good. First off, there are two S2 Tablets that are very similar. You have the 9.7 Inch, which is talked about here. And then you have a smaller version which is an 8 Inch.

Both are almost the same in every department, although a few slight differences are present. Of course the screen size is different, but also the battery capacity. The 9.7 Inch S2 comes with a battery that has a higher capacity. Higher by just under 2000mAh (1870mAH). The Galaxy Tab S2 SM-T810N looks really nice, although it does kind of remind me of a super stretched version of a Samsung Android Smartphone a little too much. But in saying that, so do most iPads when comparing them to iPhones.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 SM-T810N 9.7" Quick Specification:

  • Exynos 7 Octa-Core Processor
  • Android 5.1 (Lollipop) Operating system
  • 3GB RAM
  • 32GB built-in storage (Upgradable via SD Card)
  • 8MP rear camera + 2.1MP front (No flash)
  • Fingerprint ID feature
  • 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac
  • Bluetooth 4.1 BLE
  • Super AMOLED screen (2048 x 1536 Pixels)
  • 5,870 mAh battery capacity
  • Very thin (5.6 millimetres)
  • Lightweight (under 400grams)

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 SM-T810N 9.7 Inch 32GB is an excellent quality product that has a super fast loading time and is very easy to use. So it should be for the price. It looks as pretty as a picture. The screen is super clear, great for most things media related. Although, the screen ratio for this model was made to a 4:3 aspect ratio which is so far a bit of a disappointment for some people. However, the jury's not completely out because customer reviews in the UK are thin on the ground at the moment with the S2 SM-T810N 9.7" not having been out that long. Most people probably won't even notice the difference from the Widescreen that was used in the previous model.

There are a few other niggles, actually major drawbacks with this model. First off is how long it takes to charge up. There is no quick charge option which has been available on some of the previous model Samsung Tablets. So basically it will take a very long time (several hours) to charge this Tablet. So if you need your Tablet when travelling and you forgot to charge it the night before you could find yourself having to use your Smartphone instead. Also the battery life itself is pretty poor when compared to other Tablets costing around the same price, so the need for quick charging is even more important for this model, but sadly it's not there.

If your someone who regularly needs to take an SD Card out of your Tablet in order to put it into another device you may get rather peed off with the Galaxy Tab S2. An SD card ejector tool is needed for the Galaxy Tab S2 SM-T810N. If your out and about a lot with your Tablet and need to remove the SD Card this will be a pain to make sure you have your SD Card ejector with you all the time.


Overall, it's a good product if you can live with the niggles. But perhaps you should consider the Nexus 9, Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet (Buy product cover but a Superb Tablet), or holding out for the huge 12.9 Inch iPad Pro to see if that suits your needs better. There's always a supposedly better one on the way.. Where does it end eh! Want even more information on the S2..Still hungry? Check out the S2 Review over at Pocket-Lint.
