Following the path of Apple’s recent tablets, Samsung has incorporated a biometric fingerprint scanner into the tablet’s Home button. This feature will be quite convenient for the users. It could be used as a security measure by the users.
Users can use this feature to safely lock their tablets and they will be able to unlock it without having to type in the password every time.
The fingerprint scanner could also be used in the place of passwords in websites. In tests performed on the device, the scanner accurately identified the finger each time for which it had been trained and did not throw up any false matches. A password can be used as a backup of the fingerprint scanner.
The Home button is accompanied by the Recent Apps Button and the Back button which are silkscreened on its either side. The physical Home button is convenient for users, but there’s a fairly high chance that the other two buttons may get pressed accidentally.
The power and volume buttons are located on the right side of the device with the microSD card slot just below them. The microSD card requires a pin or paperclip to eject it, removing any chances of accidental ejection.
The pair of speakers situated on the bottom edge of the tablet is capable of producing quite a lot of sound. The sound may crack if the volume is turned up too high, but in lower volumes, the speakers produce decent quality sound.
The tablet comes with a set of proprietary connectors on its back which allows secure attachment of cases to it.
Stay tuned for more update on Samsung Galaxy tab S2.
