Bought one for the company warehouse as their iPad was giving them headaches not seeing the Wifi. Anyway, they didn't like the RDP ability on the Galaxy - something the iPad is good at..when it works 80% of the time.
So I took the galaxy home for a play.
It's heavy, like..."my arms really aching" heavy. Just under half a Kg, it feels lot heavier after 10 minutes.
OS is good. Bright, slick, quick and clear. Just like your Galaxy phone but a lot bigger.
I don't like the really reflective screen, it's a real pain if theres strip lights in the room or your outside. All you see is strip lights or sky, so it's difficult to see the screen in some environments. A matt screen would have been much better IMO.
Google handwriting is good though, so I may use it to take notes in meetings.
I've learnt tablets aren't really for me. I got bored pretty quickly, put it down and picked up the laptop. it basically reinforced what I already thought. Bit of a toy, nothing serious. And for just over a £100, what more could I expect. At least I didn't buy it.
I got it a few days ago good for the price but the camera quality is not very good it looks better when you look at it in the gallery but still not very good also it has no led light so it doesn't have the flashlight function so you cannot use the flash when taking pictures in dark lighting also it doesn't come ready installed with allshare cast function which allows you to play a video or a film that you have downloaded on the tablets video player onto your smart tv wirelessly. you can download an app for this function (but not allshare cast as this is a default app and not available on the app store) but you still cant play downloaded films onto your tv which is a bummer because id rather watch it on the the big screen with everyone spaced out watching comfortably instead of everyone crowded round a small screen you could get a hdmi cable (but that's quite expensive) or screen mirror but the video is very laggy when mirrored but all the other features are great it depends really if you watch a lot of downloaded films which personally I do or like to pair your device to a smart tv

Anonymous, 28 Dec 2015It won't connect to a TV because it is not MHL compatible. Wish I had known that before I boug... moreIt IS mhl capable, you just have to get the right mhl adaptor. It's just a differenice in the pins. 8 pins vs 9 pins. Do your research!
On my second tab e since Christmas have to change again as the screen will flicker on certain sites been in contact with Samsung been through factory reboot and updates still the same have had second one 24hrs will try another if same will go back to iPad.
My microphone won't work and my home and power buttons just stopped working all of a sudden.also the Google app pops up all of a sudden when I'm in the middle of playing a game or watching a movie...ugh

It won't connect to a TV because it is not MHL compatible. Wish I had known that before I bought it. What a piece of junk. Who makes something in this day and age that is not MHL compatible? Stupid!! I am hoping they create a software update for this. Otherwise...stop buying Tab E's! And if you can still return yours, send it back!
