Chippy Does The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 overview. A lot has happened in 5 years.

In Oct 2010 I was fortunate enough to get one of the first Galaxy Tabs in Europe. The review video (and live review video) was done quickly and has since amassed over 280000 views. Today I posted a video overview of the Galaxy Tab S2 (8.0 and 9.7-inch) and it’s incredible to see how much has changed. We are talking good productivity levels, fast ‘real’ web and high-end connectivity that beats most of the Windows tables out there. The LTE 32GB version launched for €500 in Europe but is already below €450 now. That sounds like a lot but I paid 799 Euros for the first 3G Galaxy Tab! It was worth it then because it was one of the first ‘mobile internet’ tablets that really worked for me but having tested the Galaxy Tab S2 I’m sure that I would get €450 of value out of it. Here’s a summary of why I think it’s one of the best options out there for most people.

Boldfaced emphasis added by me.

And that’s why you should read his post and watch his video. He has a unique perspective about it.

Wake me up when they get serious.

After making a noise about opening an English-language version of their site, something weird happened a few months ago where the URL led to a Russian-language version!

Now it’s back to English but worse than it was to begin with — and it was pretty bad from the start.
