3. Tips


These are some of the other bits you can do with your Galaxy Tab S2.

Free Microsoft OneDrive storage

The Galaxy Tab S2 comes with 'Microsoft Office package for Android', which means that you can use Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneDrive. When you start using one of them, you'll be asked to sign up or sign in with a Microsoft account. That'll give you 100GB of free 'cloud storage' in OneDrive, where your files, documents, spread sheets and presentations can be saved. The 100GB lasts for 2 years, then it'll go down. That means you need to cut down on how much you're storing (if you've filled it up), find a different storage space, or you can pay to keep it at 100GB+.

You can see anything you save in OneDrive from a computer, smartphone or tablet. Have a look at the OneDrive website for more information on what you can do with OneDrive.

Smart Manager

To keep your tablet running at its best, the Galaxy Tab S2 has its own 'Smart Manager'. This app lets you free up your memory and battery, and keeps your tablet secure.

Tap on the Apps icon at the bottom of your Home screen, then go to Smart Manager.

For a quick way to clean everything up, tap Clean all at the bottom. To see the individual settings for each one, tap 'Battery', 'Storage' or 'Ram'.

To use the 'Device security', you need to have signed in with a Samsung account.
