Samsung Unveils Galaxy Tab S2, Taking Tablet Experience to the Next Level

Latest Galaxy tablet combines big screen and Super AMOLED Display to upgrade user experience

Years ago, the winning formula for gadgets was based on how small you can pack convenience into a single device. As a result, phones became slimmer, sleeker and ultimately, smaller.

But then something shifted.

As technology adapts to the changing consumer lifestyle, a gadget became more than a gadget. It was a way to connect, explore, and do so much more; and a device that could live up to this promise became a necessity. It prompted makers to shed the traditional concept of portability that said smaller was the only way to go.

In short, there are instances when bigger, is in fact, better—take it from the brand who pioneered the introduction of big and large screens for mobile technology, Samsung.
