The best Android alternative to the iPad is skinnier and cheaper
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 are two of the most impressive tablets I've seen all year.
They're super fast performers with vivid HD screens yet they're design is my favorite thing about them.
They're two of the thinnest tablets around and they're so light weight they're basically as easy as a magazine to carry around.
The texture of the plastic back feels like something in between rubber and slate It's really pleasant to touch and makes them ultra comfy to hold.
My favorite is the eight inch model, since it's super easy to use in one hand and conveniently portable.
However, I like that the 9.7" model is as thin as the smaller one, but better for watching videos thanks to its bigger screen.
Both tablets have the same screen resolution and the super AMOLED displays are bright, colorful, and easy to see when using outdoors.
Tablets also have a fingerprint scanner, run Android Lollipop, and house high end specs that result in speedy performance.
In comparison to the Apple iPads, the Samsung tablets are a better deal.
For the same price as and iPad Air 2 or Mini 4 you can get a Galaxy Tab S2 with double the amount of internal storage Plus the benefit of increasing that via the microSD card expansion slot.
If you're looking for a great Android tablet these are two of the best you can get.
