I owned this device for a few months. It was not at all a good experience. Sometimes the tab would work great and snappy, but sometimes it tends to lag hard making it difficult to do the basic tasks even. I used it mainly for videos and note taking and this lag sometimes made those two tasks a frustrating experience. Dex was snappier initially but would take a long time to load and sometimes do some weird thing like kicking out of apps. Once a whole note was destroyed as it kicked me out of nebo app which i use to take notes. Some bugs are seen here and there and sometimes wifi would not connect. My advice is that don’t bother with this tablet and save some money and buy another tablet like tab s7 or ipad pro so that you can get an experience without frustrations. I ended up trading it to an ipad pro and i really enjoy it without any of the problems i had with tab s6.
how is the durability of the tablet? is it still good to be bought than galaxy s7 fe? good screen?
Sixth Wave, 24 Dec 2021Am using this tablet since December 2020 and didn't use the camera a single time 😆Same for me, I use this tablet since its launch in 2020. Camera's on tablets are not at all important to me. If any, it would be the selfie camera that I'd use for Skype for example. But I don't use it on my tablet. It's mainly used for browsing, watching videos, drawing, and email.

I was really disappointed because this tablet does not have a flash light at the back which should be there because flashlight is common on all phones/tablets, it also doesnt come with a hand free.

Appart from the Matepad 10.4, you can get the Matepad 11 bundle that comes with pen, keyboard and mouse for about 50 to 60€ more than the S6 lite.
For me personally not having Google Services is not a deal breaker, I mostly depend on the notes app and browser, but of couse that's me, the S6 lite certainly is good for price if you depend on Google.
Anne, 25 Nov 2021Is there a place (slot) for the S Pen built into the tablet? Thanks!No slot. There is magnet on the side of the tab to stick the pen but better buy case.
Ive used this device 6 month...i dont know why when im using it as host on zoom, using SQUID or TOUCHNOTES teaching maths online, i get kicked out soooo many times. I use fiber internet which has ping less than 10ms. Gosh its soo annoying

Last year I bought this tablet because for the price it was the cheapest tablet+pen available, even the cheapest IPad+Apple pen was still more expensive than this, and that IPad only has 32gb storage which is not enough for 2020.
I've been using this Galaxy Tab s6 lite since the 15st of last month October, I decided to buy it over the Huawei matepad 10.4 and Huawei matepad 11.
I went with the s6 lite becouse it came included with the stylus and had Samsung Dex.
But recently I am getting regrets over my purchase, I use this tablet for college and while it has been pretty stable for the most part, I've started to have little bugs and issues that totally have been destroying my routine and giving me a bad experience in general.
The first bug I encountered was that one part of the screen was not registering the s-pen, the issue was caused by using a universal case that uses rubber straps that holds the tablet to the case, those rubber straps was putting to much pressure on the screen making the s-pen not work on a specific part of the screen, so if you are planning to buy this tablet I would advise to buy a proper case and not go with universal cases, thankfully this issue was easily resolved by getting a proper case.
Second bug is a little bit more worrying, the wifi in my unit has not been particuly good since the last update, sometimes the wifi works great, and other days the wifi automatically turns off and I can't turn it back on again without restarting the tablet.
For last this isn't really a bug, but I wanna talk about the perfomance, the perfomance on this tablet is not great, it's OK but for this price you can get a lot better especially if you live in Europe, I have had the Samsung browser, Brave browser and my note-taking app Samsung notes crash on me countless times, sometimes even in the middle of class where I really need this apps to work.
My classes demand that I have the browser and my note-taking apps open, unfortunately the 4gb of ram can't keep up with even the basics of tasks for me, sometimes I'm using notes and need to use the browser open in the background, the background app always refreshes for me.
And I don't even consider myself a power user, I have no games on the tablet and just have been using it for college.
My honest advise don't buy this tablet, I could only recommend this tablet if you want to watch videos or watch movies, for the rest like note-taking there are better options out there.

I also got a new one directly from Samsung around the same time. Aside from one being gray and one being blue they have both looked and worked identically. I have yet to have any issues from them. My 5Ghz wifi speeds have always exceeded 400 Mb/s throughput.
