Overview Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2

Android version and market relevance

In October 2017 was announced tablet Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2. It is located in a series of Galaxy Tab Active among many other tablets Samsung.

The most important thing you need to know before buying is the version of Android on which the tablet is launched, so to speak, out of the box. And Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2 is working on Android 7.1 Nougat, which by the way is not so bad, as for the tablet in 2017 release. But here it is still important to know whether this model is updated to a more recent version. Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2, unfortunately, is not updated to any new version of Android. And it′s very sad, so we would advise you to look at other tablet models that are called in our catalog DROID-tablets.

Perhaps it will be important for you that the tablet has support for high-speed mobile networks. This version supports GSM/HSPA/LTE networks and works with only one SIM card. We advise you to look at android-tablets with two sim-cards.

Screen, body and battery

A weaker battery Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2 received a volume of 4 450 mAh. In this case, the tablet has a medium-sized LCD touchscreen with a diagonal of 8 inches.

The thickness of the case is 9.9 mm. This is a very thick case, we advise you to look in our catalog tablets with thin cases that fit comfortably in your hand.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2 case has dust and water protection. Today, this feature has already become the standard. Since 2017, more and more tablets have been manufactured with the protection of the enclosure according to IP67, IP68, etc.

Support stylus implemented in Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2. With it, you can always draw or write something on the tablet screen. The stylus is hidden in the case and gets out of there only when you need it. It is convenient and very functional.

Main camera and selfie camera

Let′s briefly tell about cameras at Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2: the main camera received 8 megapixels, and the front camera was placed in front on 5 megapixels. See examples of photos and videos taken on this tablet to assess their quality. And be sure to check out the video reviews of this model before buying, perhaps you will learn something very useful and change your mind about buying, or vice versa :)

Processor and Internal Memory

After a lot of leaks, we now know all characteristics of the Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2. The tablet received 8-core processor on the chipset Exynos 7880 Octa. RAM is built-in 3 GB.

But the most interesting is the built-in memory of 16 GB. This is the only option that is produced by the manufacturer. Looking for memory cards? There is a special slot for card format microSD up to 256 GB.

Price for Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2: buy or not to buy?

The tablet Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2 got into our price segment “Flagships tablets from $500” and began to be sold in November 2017 at a price of $500. Evaluation of the characteristics, probably, you have already folded, and if not, here is our result. Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2 is a very smart tablet with a convenient screen size and a cool main camera. And to all this we add that the battery, unfortunately, is weak here.

Is it worth buying now this model of the tablet, we are talking about our status “Droid-or-Junk”. Of course, at the beginning of sales, almost every tablet becomes a Droid, and we advise buying such models. But over time, the situation is changing, no one updates the Android version in the tablet, and in six months or a year this tablet can already become a Junk. In this case, we advise you to go to the DROID tablets page in our catalog, where we always show the most current models on sale for today. There are variants from different price segments, so you will have plenty to choose from.
