Samsung galaxy s2 monitor dpi

 

The 9.7-inch Samsung tablet boasts an eye-watering Super AMOLED screen that's sharp, rich in color and vibrant. As the bigger model in the Galaxy Tab S2 lineup, the larger screen is better for playing games and watching video than the 8-inch version. Otherwise, it boasts the same specs.

Tablets with a sharp screen, smooth performance and slim design are a dime a dozen, but the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 is the thinnest and lightest yet. With dimensions and performance comparable to its best competition, its slimmer size, brilliant screen and generous internal storage are small but significant differences that set it apart.

Editors' note: Except for their screen size, the 8-inch and 9.7-inch versions of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 are almost identical. Portions of their reviews are similar.

One of the things that the Galaxy Tab S2 has in common with its older sibling is an incredibly bright Super AMOLED screen. The 2,048-by-1,536, 8-inch panel packs 320 pixels per inch, and it really pops. Colors are vibrant and saturated, and video really shines here. AMOLED is serving Samsung well. The tablet's screen looks crystal clear in pretty much all lighting situations.

On the bottom of the Tab S2, are the micro USB port and dual speakers. On the right edge are volume and power buttons, along with a microSD slot that supports cards up to 128GB. The camera is square in the middle of the back panel of the tablet, and there are small, circular, magnetic holders for one of Samsung's proprietary cases on the left side, like last year's model.

Features
The Tab S2 has support for multi-window multitasking. While that feature was available on last year's tablet, it slowed the slate down significantly. But the Galaxy Tab S2 is able to keep up to six windows open without a hitch. I'm not sure who in their right mind would want six windows open; three seems to be pushing it without the screen becoming a giant mess. Two, for me, is ideal—it looks clean and I can switch back and forth between running apps smoothly. Still, it's nice to have the option for more if you want it.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 is among the best deals going in the tablet space. It has many of the same virtues as Apple's iPad Air 2 , which starts at $399 (£379 in the UK, and AU$569 in Australia): both are slim, light, fast and fantastic for consuming media. But the entry-level 32GB Tab S2 starts at $250 (£319, AU$549) and throws in a fingerprint scanner, a dazzling AMOLED screen with 2,046 x 1,536 pixels, a stellar 13 hours of battery life, and a microSD slot for adding storage. It comes in two sizes -- a compact 8-inch model and a larger 9.7-inch version ($350 in the US, £349, AU$699) -- each with a 4:3 aspect ratio that's particularly well suited to Web browsing and reading.

That noted, the premium tablet landscape is abundant with great choices. In September 2016, Apple gave a boost to its lineup of iPads, increasing the base storage capacity of the excellent iPad Air 2 from 16GB to 32GB, and dropping the 64GB model entirely. That makes the adjusted retail prices as follows: $399 for the 32GB model (£379, AU$569), $499 (£469, AU$719) for the 128GB model without cellular connectivity, and $629 (£589, AU$879) with it. We don't think the marginal price difference makes the tinier, slightly less powerful iPad Mini 4 the better deal.

Google's Pixel C was the first tablet made and designed by Google, and it's built to showcase everything that Android has to offer. But it's pricey, starting at $500 (£480, AU$670) for the 32GB model and $600 (£559, AU$800) for the 64GB version, and that's before you spring for the $149 (£209, AU$200) keyboard accessory. And then there's Microsoft's Surface Pro 4 . Equipped with robust processing power, a perfectly sized display and just-right aspect ratio, and a few critical add-on accessories, the Pro 4 has solidified the Surface's position as the gold standard for Windows tablets .

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 ($499.99, 32GB) is one of the nicest Android tablets we've seen, with a gorgeous Super AMOLED display, a more refined body than its predecessor, and a powerful processor for excellent performance. Thanks to its large 9.7-inch screen, it's better suited for multitasking than its 8-inch counterpart, the Tab S2 8.0 . But it slightly trails the smaller tablet in overall performance, and commands a hefty $100 premium for less than two additional inches of screen.

Design and Features
The Tab S2 9.7  is just about identical in design to its 8-inch sibling, only larger. It measures 9.34 by 6.65 by 0.22 inches (HWD) and weighs 13.7 ounces, a marked increase over the 7.8-by-5.3-by-0.22-inch, 9.3-ounce Tab S2 8.0. But for a larger tablet, it's even more svelte than the Apple iPad Air 2 (9.4 by 6.6 by 0.24 inches and 15 ounces), which is pretty impressive.

Like its smaller counterpart, the Tab S2 9.7 features a smooth, matte finish on the back and a subtle metal band around the body. On the bottom you have a micro USB port and dual speakers, and on the right are volume and power buttons, along with a microSD slot that supports cards up to 128GB. The camera is square in the middle of the back, and the small magnets that hold Samsung's proprietary case to the tablet can be found on the back right.
