Deal: get the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 at a price of just $250
If you're looking for an amazing multimedia tablet at an affordable price, now is the time to check out the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0, which is currently available at a discounted price.

Several retailers have the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 on sale today at $250. The 8-inch version of the Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 has a list price of $399 and usually goes for about $349. Overall, you're getting a discount of about 28% compared to the usual price.

The main highlight of the Galaxy Tab S2 is its bright and vibrant 2048 x 1536 Super AMOLED display with an aspect ratio of 4:3. The S2 is slim as well, measuring an impressive 5.6mm across the waist.

If you're a mobile gaming fan, we'd like to point out that there are better alternatives out there. The Mali-T760 MP6 GPU integrated by the Exynos 5433 chipset that powers the Galaxy Tab S2 manifests the occasional performance hiccups when running demanding titles on the 2048×1536 Super AMOLED display, but the octa-core CPU (paired with 3GB of RAM) is more than capable of handling processing-intensive tasks. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 may not be the most powerful tablet when it comes to 3D-intensive mobile gaming but the slab handles other tasks with ease. 

The Galaxy Tab S2 8.0 also comes with an 8MP primary camera, a 2.1MP secondary shooter, and a 4000mAh battery. The deal is good for the 32GB version of the slab. If you need more storage space, just slide in a microSD card and you're good to go.

What do you guys think, is $250 a good price for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8.0?

I have a Nexus 7(2013) and my daughter has an Asus Zenpad S (4:3) and as much as I hate to say it, I covet that tablet because of the aspect ratio. Yeah, it's not perfect for movies, but for doing any work or even web surfing there is just more information on the page.

I could understand big tablet to be 4:3 But the main point for having 8'' tablet is, to be comfortable holding it in one hand. Right? And even inside very large overcoat pockets. If I don't care about it, I would better go for bigger tablet. So thanks, but no thanks. Stupid design decision

I have nvidia shield which is great to play games, watch videos, movies. I just hate the ratio when I am reading books on it. It would work well for me for few more years I guess.

This new version of the S2 actually doesn't come with the Exynos processor, but the SD652 instead. The latter is rather power efficient, has similar GPU speed and a slightly faster CPU (comparable to the Exynos 7420).

The nexus 7 is still the best tablet after using this for a month.

I figure with a Nexus 7 your still viewing the same or bigger screen being a 16x9 tablet? That's what I use for movies on my lunch break.
