Taiwanese review here:

http://www.mobile01.com/newsdetail.php?id=17131

優點
1. 外型極致輕薄,9.7吋Wi-Fi款厚度只有5.6mm、重量只有389g,是市面上10吋左右平板中最輕薄的。iPad Air 2的厚度是6.1mm、重量434g,Xperia Z4 Tablet 10.1的厚度是6.1mm、重量是389g。
2. 價格跟著iPad Air 2 16GB版,但同價位下容量比iPad Air加倍,還能擴充記憶卡至128GB。
3. 採用今年Galaxy S6以後的新介面,UI經過瘦身後拿掉不少軟體功能,操作流暢度因而明顯比先前三星的平板順很多。
4. 雖然電池容量較Tab S減少,然而實際上的續航力並未降低,線上影片播放時間約多了半小時,達到將近10小時半。
5. 指紋辨識升級為與Galaxy S6相同的按壓式指紋辨識,操作時輕按一下即可將螢幕解鎖。

缺點
1. 外型雖然輕薄,然而實機質感跟iPad Air高比例的金屬材質比起來,還是有差了一點。以往三星平板都是16:10比例居多,Tab S2改為4:3雖符合網頁與電子書比例,但對於常用平板看影片的人來說,調整為全螢幕時影片比例會稍微變形。
2. Super AMOLED的特性是對比與亮度高、色彩豔,久看仍會覺得過豔,建議將螢幕色溫調整為「基本模式」或是「閱讀模式」。
3. 主相機拿掉了LED閃光燈,無法把平板當成手電筒來使用。
4. 跟今年的A8與Galaxy S6系列手機比較,不支援主題更換功能,在介面上還是略顯單調。
5. 長時間玩遊戲或看影片時,背面會有發熱的情形,但跟今年高通Snapdragon 810比起來發熱狀況算還好。

Don't really like the gold on samsung product. Black seem nicer Cheapest 8" I found was from J2 which is $575 when I bought another G4 just now. Was told stock will be arriving tonight so I left. Might be heading back tml to get it.

Really light. But the price for that processor. Hmm. Holding Tab S right now. The 4:3 really works better for my usage

Would really like to see what the battery life is like after the rather large reduction in capacity. Can't really see why they thought 6.6mm thickness of previous S was too thick!

Why does the wifi version and the lte version price not much difference .. If the difference less than $50 ppl would choose lte instead of the wifi version

Most 3rd parties start selling.
Prices are similar...wonder the telco price.

When i held the tablet last evening, i was amazed
Both 8.0 and 9.7 feels extreme thin and light..(lighter than ipad air 2 and mini 3)

its like ipad with superamloed.
Reading/browsing feels great

Media comsumption will b "crop" due to 4:3 ratio.

I guess some games might hv issue due to apect ratio.

Th 8.0 feels kinda small but ppi is higher than 9.7 (same screen resolution)...but the keyboard for 9.7 will b a plus

The demo set happens to be a 16G unit...user space available 9gb++

Bro with hands on with the Tab S2 please share more details on gaming with this device...

A noob question: How current 16:10 games fit on the screen? They stretch vertically to fit or leave black bars at top and bottom?
