This is the best tablet any one could expect for daily use . Basic games I.e. if u have only one large game or 4 small games it runs smoothly as butter no buffer issue. Battery backup and life is outstanding eg:- u can watch videos upto 12hrs continuously from 100% Charge. In sunlight photo is ok👍 I don't use tablet for photo or video so fine by me . Mostly I watch and stream videos. Look of this is so cool. Samsung made a very good tablet in a reasonable price. Samsung tablets are best 💫
Bought this second hand. I like it thin, nice speakers, my screen somehow has shades at its darkest but its okay.
But yes the screen did fall off, initially I thought this was because I used a clamp so I can watch movie at night in bed, but seems others also face same issue. What I did instead of reglue is buying a cover all case, such as unicorn beetle.
Performance issue is also there, not sure whats the culprit but lots of activities shows refresh icon for a while which I never see in my phone, this makes me reconsider on buying another newer android tablet.
Overall I recommend this if you can get at bargain price if you just want a tablet for watching movie or playing music, definitely not for gaming.
Regular Consumer, 09 Apr 2023As some say, screen is not well glued, I love it, in fact I have 3 at home for the family, and... moreThis literally happened to me today! lol What's the odds of looking up specs on old devices and seeing your comment about you having same issue? Well four years is pretty impressive since I literally use this every day as a TV and everything else
As some say, screen is not well glued, I love it, in fact I have 3 at home for the family, and all three have to be reglued, it separates easily from the frame with no effort. Apart from that, one os the three is strangely slow. I tried even reflashing system with Odin with no luck. Apart from that the screen es a marvel, and the 4 speakers sound truly amazing. Even today, 4 years after launch, I would look for one, as far as I know the only OLED with 4 speakers newer are much more expensive s6-7-8. For just watching content anywhere (I have done it even on the beach, seriously) the best.

Lavalass, 09 Aug 2022Is this tab good to buy now in 2022? I still love my tab s2. Looking for the flat,lightweigh... moreI'm on the same bus. I have an S2, still going strong but it has some issues, like the display won't light up,it always gets going in the end. Incredible machine and Super Amoled display, well ahead of its time. Now I've been eyeing the S5e which in terms of display quality and weight and also display ratio resembles the S2 the most. However, only two gigs or RAM and no support is probably a dealbreaker. But what else to get?

A little bulkier on the headphone side, sure it is, but the real estate inside the tablet is far more important, especially since if you are wanting wired headphones, you aren't worried about portability.
Runs really well still. Great tablet in 2019. Good job Samsung! Probably have to replace the battery soon though.
Ah another device that would be useful for my needs, but ONE problem: the idiots who designed it think if they force the 3.5mm jack to be obsolete, that will magically change the laws of physics, and reality. Gaslighting gets hard these days, and paying $lots for the privilege of being lied-to gets old. Fast. Saying the pathetic built-in speakers were tuned by AKG is like saying your go-kart engine was tuned by McClaren F1. So what? It's still not up to the job of transporting any weight or at any speed! It isn't to the minimum spec of being a car, let alone a good car. Same for the audio on this kind of crrrrrp. Resist!
John S, 02 Oct 2022I ordered a SanDisk 1Tb memory card for my Tab S5e before reading that the limit for cards for... moreSize of sdcard limits is about the number of files to address (the indexing of this takes a toll on the host device), also the MHz speed of the sdcard processor in the card, the compatibility with the card and the host device. You've heard of U1 U3, A1, A3 etc, right? Well there's even more to it than that.
All that aside, and being equal, the limit quoted by the manufacturer can simply be the latest size available and TESTED with the device when it was released to market. Unfortunately manufacturers don't necessarily keep testing after that (voluntary free labor via people testing their own purchases and posting the results on forums might do it for them though).
Good luck, and remember: always back up in duplicate as a minimum!
I ordered a SanDisk 1Tb memory card for my Tab S5e before reading that the limit for cards for the S5e was 512Gb (so say Samsung and everybody else). But now the card is fitted, the file manager says it is 1Tb, and as I fill it up the percentage filled up is correct ('4% full' etc). What is going on? Am I lucky? Or will it stop accepting files when it reaches 512Gb?
Thanks for any opinions.
Very good for watching Netflix ect but too slow and laggy for much else.
Anonymous, 14 Aug 2022I just got the July 2022 Android security update. Not bad for a three year old tablet.Updates twice a year is bad , update were very slow when it was new too.

Awesome tablet. Using it for almost 3 years. No hardware issues yet . But stopped major and security updates.
Good to watch videos and reading stuffs (Best Amoled Display )
Battery is average, but its okay this one the best compact tablet,also the thinnest one easy to carry also sim option available.
Note - Samsung stopped the security updates so not a good buy on 2022

Looking for the flat,lightweigh... moreIt is very sluggish and already was sluggish when it came out. 4GB of RAM is also too little. The only positives are display and speakers. I would suggest buying something newer and replacing the battery after 2 or 3 years.
