Galaxy Tab S2 8" Tablet

I was given this tablet as a present. My plan had been to hang on to my Nexus 9 tablet for at least another 6 months, though it was starting to feel slow at times. Replace a 2 year old tablet with a 1 3/4 year old tablet?? Then I realized that Samsung this year had not (yet?) launched a Galaxy TAB S3 with an 8" screen.

Am pleasently surprised that the Galaxy TAB S2 has such a good feel to it and that it reacts quicker than the Nexus 9. Boot times are less than half. Although the resolution is the same 1536x2048, the display is even crisper (8" v. 9"). And I do like having a physical Home Button (rather than the software Home Button of the Nexus 9).
