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!

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

I would suggest buying something newer and replacing the battery after 2 or 3 years.

Looking for the flat,lightweight,sleek old upgrade.
But not too expensive.
Received Feb Security patch(About 276MB) today.

Unfortunately it seems we'll still have to wait for few years. Samsung seems to be dropping OLED in mid-range tablets. The only hope now is Xiaomi or Google.
Pete, 05 Mar 2022Would live newer version with ANT+, Samsung were one of the few now even they don't. 😢This tablet has annt+ services installed.

I use my S5e for a third year now and do not see a reasonable successor to spend money on. I am spoiled now by 400gr tablet which I hold with 1 hand while reading the book, beautiful display and rich sound. There is no 400gr tablet like this on the market. Hope to see something like S8e this year

I really like this tablet. I've had few other tablets. But this one is great watching movies or YouTube. The sound is amazing.
Just received the December Security patch
This tablet needs a successor because there is no better value multimedia tablet. Premium Midrange/flagship killer tablets with OLED screens strike a perfect balance
Samsung should give last Android 12 update to tab S5e ....this is best tab under medium range and sell of this tab in all over India is very much .
