https://www.sammobile.com/2016/04/12/samsung-just-released-an-updated-galaxy-tab-s2-with-improved-performance/Looks like it was indeed updated. Can't comment on the performance vs the Huawei though.



The 2015 version has the Exynos CPU and a great GPU with TV out. The 2016 is a SD652 which is faster than the Exynos but the GPU is slower and it doesn't have TV out of any kind.

Verses the M3, they are very different devices:-

Movies - go M3 as its a 16:9 screen
Screen quality - Go S2 as its OLED
Weight - S2 as its insanely light
Battery - M3 as the S2 is small and Huawei do amazing things with battery optimisation
FP reader - M3 as the S2 is slow

Best to go and see them both in the flesh.

Awsome. Must be old age getting to me

Does anyone have experience of this and the Huawei Media Pad M3? I bought the Huawei from Amazon when it was £219 earlier this week but would this be better?

Nope. M3 is better. Latest tech and this is 2015.

I got a bit confused about this because it said 2016 in the description, was it not updated at all?

Looks like it was indeed updated. Can't comment on the performance vs the Huawei though.

Thanks. Looks like they might be fairly evenly matched.

Not to mention the insane low weight. Makes this tablet more comfortable to hold for long periods.

Even though I already own an S2, (which is now 2 years old,) I'm tempted by this as my battery is starting to suffer. HOT.

Thanks very much, really useful. The M3 is arriving tomorrow and i like the 16:9 screen so may stick with that. The S2 deal is still a cracker!

Sorry didn't notice that this is updated version. I was looking to buy from Argos but they do 2015 version.

You wont go wrong with either the 2015 or 2016. I'd pick the 2015 if you are a gamer or require TV out. Everything else, go for the 2016.

I don't fall in that category. I'm after a tablet that i could use for browsing and multi tasking. Thinking of s3 as it came down by £100 today.
But my alternate was the pixel c. Waiting for Currys to drop price.

I think T713 model is newer version or i could be wrong. Its the version I purchased recently.

The S2 is good for browsing but 3GB ram is ok today but not great going forward. The Pixel C also only has 3GB ram. Cheap out and go for this today or pay lots more and get the S3 which will last longer? The choice is yours.

T710 & T715 = 2015 Exynos
T713 & T718 = 2016 SD652

Well the only thing that puts me off is Android eco system. Most reviewers say android is not yet optimised for tablets.
Don't want to spend so much and technology doesn't support it.

Since Nougat, (which this tablet has,) Android has became better with tablet support as it now has a native split screen mode. You are correct that lots of apps don't have a special tablet version. Why not go to a store and check it out?

Yes the SD820 in the S3 is a beast compared with the SD652 in the S2. That extra GB or ram will also make some difference.
