Samsung has today taken the wraps off the long-rumored Galaxy Tab Active 2 and naturally we want to see how it compares to its predecessor, the Galaxy Tab Active. Unfortunately, we don’t have the unit in our possession, so we can’t conduct any physical tests, but that doesn’t mean we can’t pit them head-to-head in a specs comparison.
