​Thanks. S2 is only £90 more so I went for that instead.

Where?
Found this a really good tablet. Read a lot of pdf's, online magazines, photographs, web browsing... been really good and a nice size and resolution. Battery life not brilliant and I don't do films on the tablet. Sound is good, You Tube etc. Had a Nexus 9 before but that seemed to get a few glitches, no card slot and cr*ppy battery life. No complaints. Does everything I want.

​Samsung site says "free sd card with all tablets" even though it doesn't show when you click on tab s2 9.7.

If anyone wants to recommend a tablet of similar price and the reasons why that would be great for me and others.

​They aren't brilliant, plus from previous experience the GPS chips are garbage on MTK powered devices.
