    liking it better and better as I go on

    My phone was a Samsung so thought I would really like the Samsung tablet but I think I like my I-Pad better. There are better games on the I-pad and there is just no way you can put those games on the Samsung tablet. And the games you can put on are nothing but ad,ad,ad. and its so frustrating. I just hate it and then you may lose the game. I will keep playing with it as it is getting better and better to navigate. It just doesn't seem to be user friendly. But it is a real nice tablet.

    Nice heavy duty tablet

    This tablet has been thru heavy duty use from a 4 and 16 year old kids. Very heavy use. I am using an Armor Griffin case (the military specs) to protected, this case was the best investment for this Samsung tablet. Still working great at this time, is not slow or anything. I reset it to factory every once in awhile to bring it back to new, it helps to refresh it (obviously you have to back up your files, music, pictures, etc). I do not know when am going to need to buy another tablet, but when the time comes I will think again about another Samsung.

    We purchased this for my 11 year old son for Christmas. Prior we have owned a no name tablet which never worked well and we owned a Kindle which quit working after a little over a year. We were initially looking at getting an iPad however I can't believe how expensive they still are, even the older models. With this being said, we decided after reviews that this Samsung Tablet was better rated and priced to meet our needs. We own 3 iPhones and 3 iPods so it is not that we are not familiar with Apple products. It was the best deal for the money without compromising quality of product. We are very happy with this purchase.

    Low Budget Tablet

    I bought this tablet because the Bestbuy rep said it would be able to run any game I downloaded on it. I downloaded several MMOs, baseball and football games on it and it was choppy on the lowest game settings. If you're looking for a tablet to game on I would stay clear of this Galaxy Tab E. As for the Bestbuy rep, he either just tried to make a sale regardless of the product or he didn't have a clue about their products. Regardless this one's going back to Bestbuy.

    Great Gift for my 8 year old Galaxy 9.6 Tablet

    I promised my son that if he earned good grades, I'd get his old tablet fixed. Instead I went to best buy and purchased this one. They are always good when it comes to electronics and they didn't disappoint, This tablet is just the right size for him. Its a tad bit bigger than the others, which was great because I don't have to worry about it being so small he will drop it. This tablet does everything and I was able to link it to my phone so I can keep tabs on what my son is doing on it. I set a bedtime timer, limit how many hours he can play a day, and it tracks his location. I love it.

    First time tablet purchase and user. I never thought I would adapt to using a tablet as I've become accustomed to using laptops and desktops. I love Samsung products and this one tops the list with all others. It's user-friendly with many features. I'm very satisfied with my purchase (in addition to getting it on sale) and will be purchasing accessories to enhance my tablet experience!

    Great Tablet for Mom

    Bought this for my mom for an early Christmas present as her iPad was needing to be replaced. She has a samsung phone and took quickly to the tablet as the operating systems are nearly identical. It's simple design with observed 10+ hour battery life have made it a great and useful addition to my mom's routines. She pointed out that the texture on the back does make it less slippery to hold when it does not have a case on it.

    Best Tablet, awesome battery, no regrets

    I bought this tablet for my 3 yr old brother after his Nook HD+ tablet started malfunctioning. My bro loves his new tablet, he can't put it down! He has absolutely no problems playing his games and watching his youtube videos on the tablet. the size is just perfect! I am actually considering to buy another one for myself (though I would love to buy the tab E in white!!) :D and the battery life is excellent. it will usually last an entire day with heavy usage. This was actually one of the main reasons why I went with the tab e over the tab a, because the battery on the tab E is larger

    Just make sure you don't get an open box

    Other than an IPad, Samsung sets the standard. Nice and quick, sharp and bright, everything you'd expect a Samsung tablet to be. Two little things to watch for, though: 1. Since this was new to Best Buy, they didn't have any cases or screen protectors when I bought at the end of December. I had to buy them both from Amazon (and likely got them cheaper than BB would charge). This may have changed since then, though. 2. I bought it open box, but whoever had returned it hadn't logged out iif their Google account, so I couldn't get in and had to return it. They gave me a new one at the Open Box price since they said they should have caught that, but it was still an annoyance.

    Tablet runs on Android and is very responsive compared with my past Google/Android devices. It's compatible with external hardware such as Bluetooth keyboards and Smart TV's. The relatively short battery life is one of its drawbacks but it has a decent charging rate. Also, the screen size is nice--- big enough to comfortably watch videos but not some monster that you have to prop up with your hands. Overall, I'd recommend it to anyone to buy as a gift or for personal use--- another great Samsung product!

    A decent tablet but a few flaws

    Posted

    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    I think even though this tablet is 9.6", it was a bit pricey. Two issues with it to begin with. First, the adapter that came with it, is a slow charging adapter, the tablet supports fast charging. Fortunately I have the Galaxy Edge and I used the fast charger, but something to be aware of, you'll need to get a faster charger. Second, this tablet's OS is Lollipop and not Marshmallow, Samsung has seemed to abandon any updates of this Tablet. Not a great tablet to play any games where there's frame rates involved, it's a bit slow and sluggish. However overall it's a good tablet, smudges everywhere you do need to clean it daily if not hourly.

    I purchased this as a gift for someone (my son) that I knew wanted a tablet. I looked at most of what was in my local store, comparing available models and brands. I picked this one because it would fit perfectly into my lifestyle, and I thought it might fit his too. When I gave it to him, he told me he had been looking at different models and brands as well, and this was the exact one that he had decided he was going to get for himself. Its use was mostly to be for entertainment, but does lots of other things too. It is the perfect size for carrying around and using anywhere there is wi-fi. I'm glad I chose this one over the others.

    Screen is jacked

    I was excited to get this tablet at a good price on sale. I got it home got it turned on and the screen is complete garbage. You can see every line of pixels on it. It makes everything look terrible. If you hold it 4 feet away then it is ok but that is not its intended used for anyone. I got this to watch some shows and read comics. I tested Netflix on it and it is not watchable at all. I would never have bought this if I known this was the case. I am returning it first thing tomorrow and getting the Lenovo.

    I love this tablet i can do everything i need to do on it, games, movies, music. I really only purchased a tablet so i could have a bigger movie screen while im on the go. I havent really used it much for pictures mostly because im so used to taking pictures with my phone. The only real downfall i have personally with this tab is there is no flash on it so i cannot use the flashlight app with this tablet, and i guess i wont be able to take pictures in the dark. Other than that im satified with my purchase.

    This is the third tab. of this make an model I have bought for this young man in three years. The first the battery was defective but he had cracked the screen and Samsung would not honor the warranty. The second one bought Christmas 2017 was taken by one of his sisters when he visited home. And now on the third one. He only wants this one because he does what he wants and it does hold up well considering the rough use it gets. This one stays home now so his family will not steal it.

    This is an Android tablet with a 9.6 inch display, 1.5 GB of memory, 16 GB of storage, and a slot for an up to 119 GB SD card. It is working well and I haven't had any problems with it other than the fact that in the case for a 10 inch tablet that Best Buy sold me for it, it won't fit in the glove compartment in my car and the hole in the back of the case for the rear facing camera was not in the right position so that I had to enlarge it with a key hole saw. Of course that is a problem with Best Buy's case, not the tablet.

    The new Samsung tablets are slick. They have a nice large screen, with a high resolution. They can be customized to your liking. We set it up to have certain apps on the various screens dependant on how often they are used. You can create folders and categorize the apps. I like Samsung tablets more than iPads and they are much cheaper. Having the option for external storage is a bonus. You can add a micro SD card for storing music or pictures without taking up space on the internal storage. Very user friendly!

    Not the fastest, but does what I need

    This tablet is certainly not going to win any performance contests, but it's a solid piece of hardware for what I wanted to do, which was watch videos and check email. The tablet is not as fast as my phone (Galaxy S7), so sometimes I have to sit a moment while something opens or processes. Battery life seems pretty astounding. In standby mode, this tablet will last days and days. In use, I'd say I get on the order of 6 - 8 solid hours of activity. Bottom line - I probably could have spent 3 times as much and gotten a sweet tablet, but I kind of doubt I would have used that capability. This tablet has fit the bill very nicely.

    I have never owned a tablet before. I have a PC at home and my Samsung Galaxy J3 phone is my PC away from home. Didn't need a tablet. I purchased the tablet for my wife who does not have a smart phone and is tied to the PC. I wanted to introduce her a device that has all the access of the internet and email but with the convenience of a phone. Works just like my Samsung Galaxy J3 android phone with a larger screen. I am familiar with architecture and operation. Plenty of memory. I am happy with the purchase.

    So I went online and wanted to look for a tablet within my budget. I searched online vast and far for a "perfect" tablet. Behold I came across the Galaxy Tab E. I was excited because I found it at a decent price due to it being refurbished. I bought it and once I charged it up the problems started. I would be watching a video on landscape mode and I'd brush the "back" button and it would take me out of the video. The keyboard on this thing is horrendous. Although it did have some pros. Books/Comic books did look decent on it and so did the movies. I'd say if you're in the market for a tablet just go ahead and save your money and get an iPad.
