If you like to work on the go and don't want the bulk of a laptop, then adding a keyboard to your 9.7-inch Galaxy Tab S2 is a great solution.

Check out our roundup of the best keyboards for your Tab S2!

Samsung Keyboard Cover

Samsung's own Bluetooth keyboard cover fits your Tab S2 perfectly. It's not magnetic but instead snaps onto the built-in mounts on the back for your Tab S2.

Don't be afraid to put a little pressure on there because it does take some doing to get it on. After that, it's smooth sailing and seamless typing.

The cover folds back to become a handy stand so you can type comfortably on your lap or on a table. When you're not typing away, the cover provides protection for your screen.

Samsung's keyboard cover is lightweight, adding very little bulk to your Tab S2, so your tablet remains as portable as ever and even more convenient.

Of course, this keyboard features Android hot keys so that you can seamlessly interact with your tablet.

Logitech Type-S

A titan in the accessories market, we'd be remiss if we didn't mention Logitech's Type-S keyboard for your Galaxy Tab S2.

The Type-S is incredibly portable, thanks to its thin design. You can also go roughly 6 months without recharging its battery, so you just have to worry about keeping your Tab S2 topped up daily. The handy auto on/off feature ensures that you're never wasting power.

Your tablet easily snaps into the Type-S, which has magnets to keep the cover closed and to create the stand. Like most keyboards, this one connects via Bluetooth.

If you're looking for lightweight protection for your Tab S2 with a wide-set keyboard that makes typing easy, then give the Logitech Type-S a whirl.

Fintie Blade X1

Fintie's keyboard cover features a removable keyboard that integrates via magnets, so if you're wanting to protect your Tab S2 but feel like a little less bulk, you can take it out. That being said, the Blade X1 adds minimal girth to your tablet even with the keyboard in place.

If, for some strange reason, you happen to be far away from your tablet, the keyboard will work up to 10 meters away.

This particular keyboard cover also adds a touch of style to your Tab S2, thanks to its textured PU leather cover that comes in eight different colors from vibrant robin's egg blue to a toned-down purple.

The stand is adjustable, so you can change the angle of your tablet on the fly to suit your comfort. If you're looking for a customizable case option that can change with your daily needs, then Fintie has you covered (pun intended).

KuGi Ultra-thin Portfolio Case

KuGi's well-reviewed case features a detachable keyboard and gives you up to 90 hours of uninterrupted work time, so you can enjoy having to charge this one maybe once a week, if not less.

This is another PU leather case, but with a softer finish giving your Tab S2 a refined and sleek look, while keeping it well-protected.

This is also an excellent option if you're on a budget, since you can find it for around $30. This is a sophisticated-looking case the functions well and protects your Tab S2 from bumps and dings, while leaving the necessary ports, buttons, and the camera available for quick and easy use.
