There are two sizes of the Galaxy Tab S2 available, in a similar move to Apple’s iPad range. Here, we’re talking about the smaller 8in model, but there’s also a 9.7in model available. If you’re an Apple fan, those sizes might sound familiar, as the iPad mini is 7.9in and the iPad Air is 9.7in.
We’ll talk a bit more about the screen in a moment, but first let’s explore the design and build of the Galaxy Tab S2 8, which is a delight to hold and certainly felt on par with the iPad mini in terms of quality and comfort. It’s an incredible 5.6mm thick, and weighs just 265g, which is a whole millimetre thinner than its predecessor, and also thinner than the 6.1mm iPad mini 4 and lighter, too (the iPad mini 4 weights 299g). You can really feel the difference.
