I love this tablet. I upgraded to the S2 9.7 from my iPad mini 2, which was getting a bit beat up and had become incredibly laggy after the iOS 10 upgrade. I also wanted a bit of a larger screen for watching movies and reading eBooks/articles. I love the AMOLED display, which is much brighter and more vibrant than my mini's, and the processor gets the job done for all of my everyday tasks. If I were buying a tablet primarily for work (which I am not), I probably would have gone with the iPad Pro, but the Pro's price didn't seem worth it to me for my particular needs (web browsing, video streaming, and reading). The SD card slot is also worth its weight in gold, and I'm so impressed by how thin and light this device is, even with the larger screen size. Also, although I've read several reviews bashing this tablet's battery life, I'd like to add that I've been getting really good battery performance from my S2--I have been routinely seeing 8-10 hours of "screen on" time, mostly from watching Netflix and Amazon Video. If you have a Samsung smartphone (like I do), I also highly recommend this tablet because of the "SideSync" app, which allows you to wirelessly connect your phone and tablet and mirror the two displays/quickly transfer data between the devices. Too cool! The device's "cons"--no latest-generation Exynos processor, no QHD resolution, no all-metal casing--are, at least for me, not really "must have" features. I don't really notice the lack of these things in real-world usage, and I really wouldn't want to pay the premium price for them, anyway. So, in general, I'd recommend this tablet for casual users like myself.
