87.7% Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 LTE Tablet Review | Notebookcheck
Insanely slim. With a more compact chassis and a different screen ratio, the new Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 aims to outdo its predecessor. Our in-depth review will show whether this is a success despite – or because – of the shrunken dimensions.

70% That Premium Feeling
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
After spending close to a week with the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7, one thing's certain - this tablet is an excellent choice for those who want to travel light. Samsung has reduced the weight and size of the new tablet without compromising on build or rigidity, which is commendable. The 4:3 aspect ratio makes it comfortable to hold when reading or watching videos. At Rs 39,400 it's also cheaper than a similarly specced Google Nexus 9 or Apple iPad Air 2. Samsung has the edge over the other two when it comes to expandable storage and the ability to make voice calls.

The screen diagonal is used for small tablets.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

This weight is somewhat high for a smartphone. Smartphones with a big screen and small tablets weigh as much, usually.
