Bulbul, 13 Mar 2017Why my Samsung Galaxy Tab E SM-T560 is still stuck on KitKat 4.4.4?Because we have two types of Galaxy Tab E 9.6:
- Tab E 9.6 international (or original), with Spreadtrum chipset, 5000mAh battery and 8GB of internal storage. Not planned to receive Android updates, because of chipset.
- Tab E 9.6 exclusive to the United States and Canada (released three months after the original model, practically a Value Edition), with Snapdragon chipset, 7300mAh battery and 16GB internal storage.
Jabal, 13 Jun 2017Whats the problem with Samsung to upgrade this tablet?The problem has a name: Spreadtrum.

If yours is the SM-T560NU or the SM-T567, it is the Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset model. It should already be on Android Marshmallow, it has 16GB of internal storage and 7300mAh of battery.
If yours is not those two, it certainly is the Spreadtrum chipset model. Certainly also it will be with Android 4.4.4 KitKat.

Those unlucky people like me, please be aware that there are 2 versions for this tab. One snapdragon us version and other one spreadtrum. Snapdragon verson upgraded to 6.0.1. Spreadtrum version struck at 4.4.4 and there will be no further updates.
mgsfoxhound, 02 Feb 2017Just got this for my wife the T560 and updated it 3 times now have 6.0.1 on it works fine no rootHi,
Can you tell your Tab model number from the "About Device" menu of the Settings.
Anand, 21 Jun 2017How did you manage to upgrade, can you please help me with the sameHi...by now you probably have it figured out....but if not...go to settings about device ...look at software information click on it there should be software update option...read my other comments on how to get the latest update...you can also just Google it ...type in the whole name brand like Samsung Galaxy Tab E with how to update the software...you will find all kinds of information about your tablet...even videos that will show you how to do it. You could also go straight to samsung website ...but probably better off with my first suggestion...My complaint I have is the have the nerve to offer the manual for the device and say it's unavailable in my language ( which is English lmao) and I do believe it says that in every language....which is pretty pathetic for a large company!!!! Why even add the option if it's not available. Anyways, Google is your best method for the help you need. You will figure it out eventually if you haven't already ;)
Rabz, 17 Jun 2017Its 4.4.4. So so frustrating. They sell it saying it has 5.1 lollipop. Sorry its a lie. It don... moreJust update your device...I think it's under "about this device" or click on settings and look and find search and just type in software update. Maybe you have the permission turn off ...there are many ways to get around in the tablet....sometimes I get lost lol...you think something of this size wouldn't be able to do some of the things that are available. It actually works for you and you have the ability to block every application and it may be blocked by the system default settings from the factory. I can't remember off the top of my head, but go on google to check how to update your tablet and be sure to specify the name of device like "how do I update the software on my Samsung Galaxy Tab E......" Hope this helps and just keep searching and you will love this tablet!!!
MarkH, 12 Jun 2017This tablet is slow. It has a hard time keeping up with the free x-wing game. It also does not... moreIf you got it for free why are you complaining? The reason why you are not happy is because you didn't purchase it for your specific needs. The design is suitable for the ones who purchased it, because we checked out all options and compatibility for our needs. If you wanted a compass and the other things you mentioned like the gaming issues etc... You would most likely look for a tablet or device that suits your needs. You shouldn't post a bad review based on your own needs, and the fact you didn't purchase it...they gave you the device for free...I wouldn't complain about something that was free on their own website...that's ungrateful for one...but most importantly; I'm glad you actually stated you getting it for free....complain to someone is fine but not on the company reviews when it was a free handout. Sell it and put it towards something that has what you are looking for 😊😉
Anonymous, 22 Jul 2017None. It doesn't have hdmi... Also mine is 4.4.2 kitkat.I think you can buy a cord that converts your device to hdmi...from charger Port same cord we use to charge tablet but with hdmi on other end. Check it out...just trying to help

This tablet is pretty flexible and very reliable. I stream on it all the time. Mirroring to the TV is only issue I have once in a while (probably not the tablet, but the stream provider) the tablet doesn't work very well to touch and navigate to fast forward the stream. I get awesome stream directly from this tablet. The quality of this tablet is like watching a small TV with the same options as a mini computer. I love it!! I highly recommend this tablet!!!! It's worth the price for this device!!!
JSMOOTH, 25 Jun 2017It's not a lie,mine came with 5.1,and now has upgraded to 6.0Only t560nu model gets 6.0.1 update
Ness, 29 Jun 2017Does it have some HDMI port? Micro, mini...? None. It doesn't have hdmi... Also mine is 4.4.2 kitkat.
