More reasons to love your Galaxy Tab S2
By Samsung Australia, 23.10.2015.
Samsung's popular tablet range has a sleek new entrant, the Galaxy Tab S2, and it will keep the whole family entertained.
Its slender build and exquisite screen certainly turns heads, but the stylish Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 is much more than just a pretty face. Whether it's keeping you entertained or your kids, there are plenty of reasons to fall in love with your new tablet.
The Galaxy Tab S2 comes with the choice of an 8 or 9.7-inch display, but whichever size you prefer your favourite movies can look crisp and vivid thanks to the stunning screen. You can tweak the image settings – depending on whether you're watching movies, flicking through photos or reading books – but try the Adaptive Display option which can automatically adjust the colour, contrast and brightness helping the picture look fantastic in almost any environment.
Dive into the Google Play store and you've got a world of entertainment at your fingertips, but it's also easy to carry around your own entertainment library. The Galaxy Tab S2's micro-SD card slot can hold a memory card storing up to 128 GB of movies and music copied from your computer – perfect for staying entertained while offline 1.
When you are online you've got a wealth of streaming music services at your disposal, but make sure you check out the free Samsung Milk Music app 2.
It's your own personalised radio streaming service – just choose a genre you love and it will keep the great music coming.
There's no need to put aside the Galaxy Tab S2 when it's time to curl up with a good book, as this lightweight Samsung tablet makes for an ideal eBook reader. You'll find great eBook apps like
Kindle and Kobo and these apps are even smart enough to remember where you were up to when you open your book on another device.
Once again the Adaptive Display option can help ensure the screen is bright enough for reading outdoors but still easy on your eyes when you climb into bed with your favourite author.
Children love to play with tablets and the Galaxy Tab S2's Kids Mode offers a great way to keep them entertained. It also helps ensure inquisitive little fingers don't dive into your email, delete apps or mess around with your settings.
Kids Mode lets you create a list of safe apps for your children to use, keeping youngsters out of trouble while ensuring they don't constantly need your help to jump between their favourite games. You can create different profiles for different children, set time limits and restrict access to the movies and music stored on the tablet.
The Galaxy Tab S2 offers a great battery life, but if you're looking to go even longer between charges then tap "More" in the Wi-Fi settings and select "Keep Wi-Fi only on when plugged in" so the Wi-Fi goes to sleep when the tablet is sitting idle on your coffee table. There's also an Ultra Power Saving mode, which lets you cut back to the bare essentials when you're running low on juice so you're not left in the lurch.
