B12 , 13 Apr 2016I'm reading alot of thes comments about the Tab E and it's - "it's the worst" "its barely does... moreIt's not even worth half it's asking price. Here in UK it's on 'offer' at £139, Alcatel pixi 3 10 tab, almost identical specs, but better screen free Bluetooth keyboard and case sells for £79!
Have both side by side...pixi brighter, better colours more vivid...it's faster, and does not get so not.
It's a no brainer the competitors have this junk beaten...
Firstly, it's got a poor screen...very poor. Low res with evident light bleed. Build quality very sturdy, but has so many faults can only recommend not buying. Capacitive buttons too easy to accidentally press during games. Very sluggish and only Android 4.4.4 even now!
Lenovo which used to be poor like this have made leaps and bounds recently in quality.
Even the Alcatel pixi 3 10 tab which costs exactly HALF the price is a lot better...brighter more vivid screen, later o/s and faster.
Will be returning this horrid Samsung mistake!
Royalliner , 26 May 2016Could it be used to make normal GSM calls ?!yes, but only the version t561.
I've had this tablet for 5 months now, here's what I can tell you. I have the SM-T561M model, with 3G running Android KitKat 4.4.4. This model uses a chip made by Spreadtrum, but US models have the Snapdragon 410. I got it for roughly US$ 180.
Times I've noticed lag: when downloading something to the SD card (might be because the card sucks), when running a Launcher (tried Nova and Google now, both lagged a bit) and when opening the desktop version of a site in chrome (scrolling becomes laggy). Other then that, I haven't noticed any major slowdown.
It can makes calls, send sms messages and has Samsung's multi-window (great for watching YouTube while web surfing). The ram consumption sits around 800mb of the available 1,5gb. 1080p video playback is choppy so I'd say stick to 720p. Games run great, my model has a Mali-400 MP4 dual-core gpu. Modern combat 5, NOVA 3, Dead Trigger, GTA 3 & San Andreas, AVP evolution all run fine.
Its a tablet for someone who isn't super picky about performance and wants a bigger screen (personally I bought it because of the multi-window and low price).
Hope this helps =)
PS: You get 4.98gb of the 8gb storage.
sisilia, 15 May 2016Hi I want to get Samsung tab E 9.6 but I`m not really sure if it`s good or not. Can someone te... moreThis is a bad decision financially. It's thicker and heavier than similar Samsung tablets, only offers 1280x800 resolution at 9.6" for a whopping $230 for the smallest capacity. Granted, you can add cards. If you're looking for a better deal, the 8" Galaxy Tab 8 with 16GB on board and near identical specs (with 4:3 aspect and 1024x768, a slightly lower resolution) is a much thinner tablet, much lighter, and costs about $60 less, while graphically outperforming the E by quite a bit.
