First Long Review (In Thai): Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0

See this Google Translate link [original link].

Despite the fractured English, it’s worth looking at.

AnTuTu is again impressive:


Over the 50,000-mark, as first reported and contradicting two other scores that were 10,000 points less.

There are many sample photos at the review.


Unfortunately, none of them are full-resolution. Nonetheless, I looked at them carefully with zoom and I couldn’t find anything wrong with them. The greens were sharp without muddying and edges were well-defined without looking algorithmically-enhanced (and therefore fake). It’s not as good as an iPad camera but it’s a big improvement over past cameras in Samsung tablets and I don’t think people will cringe at having to use it — except in low light, since there’s no flash.

The one point of the tablet as a demerit is the size of the battery. But it seems this complaint is based on the battery’s capacity and not the stamina of the tablet.

There’s also a video of the review (it spends too much time on the damn custom cover, so be prepared to skip the first seven minutes):

I see that Palm Swipe is available for screensnapping. That’ll be a relief after the Insignia Flex Elite 7.85! I’ve used Palm Swipe before, on the Tab A models.

The MultiView demo in that video is a trip, with three panes open at once.

I’m very eager to test this tablet. I hope to give it the Extreme Test, by attempting a download of the full 290MB version of The American Magazine and trying it with Foxit Mobile PDF and SmartQ Reader.
