I'm having a bit of a dilemma. This is my first tablet. Ok so tab s or s2? Im going to be using it for web surfing and media. Apart from web pages I wont be reading on it. Here's what I've learned and maybe you guys can help persuade me to pick one

Pros for Tab s,

Screen ratio for media
Stereo speakers
Infa red. (Not a massive pro)

Pros tab s2,

Newer and more premium feel
New os
Bigger internal memory
Lighter and smaller (not too bothered)

I think im more for the tab s but I feel the one thing that's really pushing away is that I love my galaxy s6, mostly because the new os which is the same as on the s2. When researching for my phone I heard allot about the s5 os being rubbish and that's what is running on the tab s. I'd rather suffer a smaller screen that an annoying or stuttery os.

Does that make sense? Or am I just being petty? Has anyone had any bother with the tab s?

Thanks for your help

Welcome to the forum

I have a Tab S 10.5 and from what I have read about the S2, I'll stick with what I have. It's still easy to handle.
