[Deal Alert] Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 8" for $239.99 and 9.7" for $279.99

When I was looking for a replacement for my Nexus 7 (2013) a couple of months ago, I did my due diligence in research and settled on the Galaxy Tab S2 8". I wanted a tablet I could carry around while walking (I edit AP articles like this, so nothing over 8.5"), with a great screen, Android Nougat (by default or updatable to it), and a decent processor, RAM, and storage. The Tab S2 8" filled all those boxes and I ended up paying about $300 for it. Now you can get it for $239.99. I wish I could go back and wait, my Nexus 7 was still working, dammit Rita!

Verizon's Exynos-based Galaxy Tab S2 updated to Android 7.0 Nougat

Samsung is far from the best company when it comes to product names (remember the Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch?). In a similar vein, there are actually two tablets called the Galaxy Tab S2 - one released in 2015 with an Exynos processor, and another in 2016 with a Snapdragon chip. Verizon's Snapdragon model already received an Android 7.0 update, and now it's the Exynos model's turn.

T-Mobile is rolling out Nougat to the Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, and Galaxy Tab S2

Samsung and its carrier partners can take a long time to get big system updates rolled out to older devices, but at least it happens. Some OEMs would have abandoned a phone from 2015 by now, but T-Mobile is rolling out a Nougat update to the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge, which was promised a few days ago. Bonus: the Tab S2 on T-Mobile is getting the update, too.

Samsung confirms the Galaxy S6, S6 Edge and Edge+, Note5, and more will get Android 7.0 Nougat in the first half of 2017

Well, this is a first. Of all the major OEMs that we cover on Android Police, few give us more headache when it comes to their Android updates than Samsung and LG. HTC, Sony, Motorola have been known to reveal which devices they plan to update to a newer version of Android and to give a timeline of that update, a practice they have followed over the past few years, but Samsung and LG? Radio silence. That frustrated us as reporters and you as users because you never knew if a phone you bought last year would get bumped to a new Android version or not.
