i bought mine 2 weeks ago. was worried about the android 4.4.4 not upgradeing but mine upgraded up to marshmellow 6.1 right away. love this device .very pleased.
You look at a spec sheet saying it is lollipop and you say it's kitkat? It is really runningAndroid Lollipop.
I loved it until it shut down/froze while it still had charge.. and now it won't even charge. Also heated up to the point where I couldn't touch it. I shouldn't have to pry open a device to fix it. I didn't pay to play operation on an electronic device. If that's my sollution I am not interested. Tried everything else I read about and nada. Tablet seems to be fried and I haven't even had it for a year. Bs

You should look for Sony and Huawei. Sony and Huawei provide better services than Samsung.

Camera quality is the worst. WiFi connectivity is not good. can't do multi tasking. I would prefer Huawei or Sony. Stay away from Samsung.

I just (11/27/16) purchased a Tab E from Bestbuy. It came with Marshmallow (Android 6) installed. It does not have cell phone connectivity.
So far, I am very impressed with the whole thing.

Love Samsung, Love Android products!
nokas, 24 Nov 2016it says that comes with lollipop, so whats your problem?My dear, Samsung Galaxy Tab E 9.6 is still running KitKat 4.4.4. If you don't believe then buy Samsung Galaxy Tab E 9.6 then you would believe that who is right and who is wrong. still no update available for this device.
Experience with Samsung is that they quit updating software and Androidsoon after you buy it.
