9 Things You Need to Know About the Galaxy Tab S2Share open/close
Whether used for browsing the web, reading e-books or watching videos, the tablet is slowly but surely becoming the preferred device to improve one’s efficiency in an on-the-go world where there are simply not enough hours in a day. The launch of the Galaxy Tab S2, packed with many innovative features and boasting an ultra-thin design, has ushered in a new era of portable productivity. Here are nine things you should know about what this amazing device has to offer.
When it comes to consuming content, laptops are too big and bulky. Smartphones can be too small. Yet, at just 5.6mm thin and only 389g (9.7 inch) and 265g (8.0 inch)*, the Galaxy Tab S2 is just right. As the thinnest and lightest tablet on the market, toting around the device, which is available in two sizes, is equivalent to carrying a light magazine or a coffee tumbler. As such, the tablet fits effortlessly into a small bag, is easy to handle with one hand and is ideal to carry when on-the-go.
Ever order something while on an online shopping binge, only to have the item show up at your doorstep in a completely different hue? Those days are over, as Super AMOLED technology reproduces lifelike colors in their truest form, leaving no room for unwanted surprises. Similarly, videos and photographs are more vivid, and a higher contrast ratio delivers more detail.
The Galaxy Tab S2’s stunning Super AMOLED display makes it perfectly designed for reading and viewing content. By recreating a similar viewing experience of browsing through traditional print media, the tablet also makes it comfortable to read digital content, including e-books, magazines, webpages and newsfeeds.
An improved, reading-optimized ratio allows the user to enjoy a seamless reading experience across the entire screen without distracting margins or unnecessary scrolling, while Reading Mode decreases eye strain and allows for longer reading sessions.
In a fast-paced work environment, the Galaxy Tab S2 is the ideal device for maximizing workplace productivity and managing tasks efficiently when on-the-go. The tablet’s MS Office Solution allows for the creation and editing of documents, tasks that would normally be done on a PC. And for those who might not be quite comfortable utilizing a touchpad to perform such tasks, the optional Book Cover Design Keyboard delivers a PC-like experience that’s far more portable.**
To access such documents already stored on a PC or laptop, the tablet’s OneDrive*** cloud storage provides business continuity by letting users access the content across all devices.
Away With Wires
Similarly, when the situation calls for it, built-in BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) technology enables automatic connectivity between the device and TVs or smartphones, making everything from giving presentations to watching TV as easy as a tap of a button. Bye-bye, cumbersome cables!
The Galaxy Tab S2 has taken into account our innate need to multitask and gives users the ability to run and access multiple apps at once. Whether you want to watch videos while chatting with friends, or scroll through a presentation while taking notes, the tablet’s split view, all at once.
Need for Speed
Speaking of saving time, the tablet offers an ultra-fast network performance with fifth generation Wi-Fi 802.11ac and 2X2 MIMO technology. Two internal Wi-Fi antennas double the connection and offer more stability and speed than ever before. If that weren’t enough, the tablet’s Download Booster utilizes Smart Bonding technology to seamlessly combine Wi-Fi and LTE for even faster network speeds when you need a bit of a boost.
Everyone wants to keep their contacts and content secure, but keeping track of and constantly entering passwords can be quite a hassle. Fortunately, the fingerprint scanner technology of the Galaxy Tab S2 makes authentication quick and painless. Similarly, pre-installed anti-malware provides an added layer of security to the device to ensure you’re always protected.
A Camera for All Lighting Conditions
While the Galaxy Tab S2 is built to enhance productivity, it was also designed to incorporate a number of cool features to improve usability, too, including an upgrade to its camera. Thanks to its increased lens aperture, which allows for 35 percent more light than the previous model, the tablet now has the ability to take brighter and better pictures, even in low-light conditions.
It’s easy to see why tablet owners spend considerably less time on other devices after purchasing a tablet. Its features save time, allow for enhanced productivity and multitasking and are perfectly portable. And with the incredibly thin and light design of the Galaxy Tab S2, along with some great added user benefits, it’s clear that the tablet will continue to convert consumers and is a gadget trend that is here to stay.
