Galaxy Tab E Review: Samsung’s Affordable Tablet Out Of The Game? Specs, Features To Compare
The Samsung Galaxy Tab E is a large 9.6 inch display 4g LTE tablet, however, how does it fare compared to the more modern models?
The specifications, as presented in Samsung's official website, are as follows:
* 1,280x800-pixel resolution * Android Lollipop 5.1.1
* 16GB internal storage
* MicroSD card slot expandable up to 128GB
The Display is definitely crisp and bright thanks to the tablet's 1280 x 800 resolution. The viewing angles are good, however, manual adjustments of the brightness based on the lighting condition are often required as it lacks an ambient light sensor.
Samsung's signature of having a home button at the bottom of the display along with back buttons on sides can also be found in the Galaxy Tab E. The built is still solid, despite being made of plastic. In fact, it's textured finish on the back provides a comfortable grip.
The user interface is mostly similar to what we see in Samsung smartphones. Five home screens and widgets are available with shortcuts that can be created for quick launch. Similar to other Samsung models, the multi-window feature is also available on the Samsung Galaxy Tab E, allowing two apps to run side by side.
The Galaxy Tab E's 5000mAH offers a fairly long life of approximately 17 hours. The Ultra power saving mode also helps in conserving the battery while limiting the number of apps for usage.
Its 2 MP camera in the front is capable of recording videos at VGA resolution, which is quite dismal nowadays. Meanwhile, its 5 MP autofocus camera at the back comes with no flash support rendering the images captured decent, but not sharp.
Many people can agree with the verdict found in Cnet that the Samsung Galaxy Tab E has plenty of affordable competitions. Still, the tablet has cellular capabilities, and at the current retail, it is definitely one of the most affordable 9.6 inch 4G LTE tablets in the market.
