Build and Screen

Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 9.7 flaunts an awesomely slim design, measuring just 5.6 millimetres in thickness – thinner than the ultra-slim iPad Air 2. It has a plastic chassis accentuated with a metal frame, which probably explains why it weighs significantly less than the iPad with an all-metal body.

As its name suggests, the tablet crams in a massive 9.7-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen with an impressive resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels – same size and resolution as the one on the iPad Air 2. The multi-touch display has a pixel density of 264 pixels per inch.
