So far, this particular tab E 9.6" is running 6.0.1 and has a 7300 MaH battery. Very quick and snappy and streams video very well. Dunno what every bodies problems with buying on such an older version of android but bought this one and has the newer version preinstalled.
visited all markets and checked Samsung Galaxy Tab E 9.6. everywhere it is stuck on KitKat. That's why I did not buy. KitKat is very veryyyyyyyyyyyy old. poor tablet

Fixerman, 19 Dec 2016Bought Dec 2016 still stuck on 4.4.4. HelpKitKat is a very old version of Android. You should contact Samsung customer service. Retailers told me Samsung has not planned to upgrade the Android version of Samsung Galaxy Tab E.
Tablet is good but android Kitkat is not good. KitKat is too old software. At least it should run Lollipop. Sony and Lenovo is better than Samsung.
Not a good product. I checked in the many markets, this tablet is still running KitKat 4.4.4. KitKat is very old. I will never buy.

I've had mine since last Xmas and it is running 6.01...no problems at all...just wish it was MHL compatible, cannot seem to be able to hook it up to hdmi
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

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.
