Samsung temporarily cuts Galaxy Tab S2 prices by 100 Euros
For a limited time in certain European regions, Samsung will be giving 100 Euros cashback to all new buyers of a Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 or Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 starting February 4th, 2016. The promotion applies to all colors of the two models and even the LTE SKUs. MyDealz.com offers an overview of the applicable models. A very similar promotion was made available in North America late last year with $100 USD off certain configurations. The deal may have been successful enough for expansion to additional countries.
Before applying what is essentially a temporary 100 Euro price cut, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 and its LTE version retail for 350 Euros and 410 Euros, respectively, while the Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 and its LTE version retail for 430 Euros and 500 Euros, respectively. The deal makes the Galaxy Tab S2 series more price-competitive against the iPad Air 2, which currently retails for 430 Euros for the 16 GB SKU. The 32 GB Galaxy Tab 9.7 retails for just 330 Euros in comparison.
See our dedicated reviews on the Galaxy Tab 8.0 S2 LTE and Tab 9.7 S2 LTE for more information on the tablets. Like the current Galaxy S6 lineup of smartphones, the tablets will throttle under sustained heavy load. Otherwise, they provide average performance and battery runtimes. The AMOLED displays are the best part of the series with their vibrant colors and an unmatched contrast ratio.
