    Great for an elderly person

    Purchased this device for my father. He learned to navigate the device easily. Only downside are the buttons on the bottom do not light up. So with someone of age they can't really see the buttons to return to homepage or go back. He has been on the tablet everyday since purchased.

    Buggy, bad screen, and badly designed

    Right out of the box it's lagging and slow. The colors on the screen are dull, and the two touch buttons on the bottom are completely useless at night because you cannot see them...

    It is the perfect size. My only problem is that I keep hitting the back button by mistake when I'm holding the tablet in my hand.

    It is a little slow turning on. And the back button doesn't respond well sometimes. While playing games the screen pauses and flickers frequently.

    This is a really nice tablet. My only complaint is that the touch buttons on the bottom are too sensitive. My husband has large hands and he is always hitting those and is very annoying.

    I love everything about this tablet. There's only one thing I can think of that would improve it - the "home" and " "return" buttons need to be lit up so you can find them. Other than that one little suggestion (not a complaint) it is excellent.

    The invisible buttons on either side of home button are annoying. If game uses dual controlling buttons these invisible buttons stop the game very easily. Miss the old Samsung tablet which was a larger screen for 10" and no invisible buttons. .

    Pressing the on button is hard on my thumb finger nail and I have to push it several yikes sometimes before it comes on. I had to get used to this new tablet but now I am doing pretty good with it. . I must tell you I am a senior and sometimes I am slow learning new things.

    Wasn't exactly what I wanted, but didn't have what I wanted in stock. Got home to find out that was the same tablet my husband bought a few months earlier for himself at about $25 or more cheaper. The only thing I really dislike is the placement of the screen on/off button. I keep accidentally hitting it and closing my apps.

    So this review is more of relating feedback from my mother as this wasn't purchased for myself. My mother loves the tablet when she uses it the screen is decent which I know cause I set it up for her of course. Battery life is good you can leave unplugged for days and still have decent amount of charge left. My only grip from using briefly is the fact that the capacitive buttons don't illuminate that's just poor design or for the cost Samsung didn't care enough to include.

    I new what I was buying and got just that. Nice tablet, good screen, plenty fast. Only problem I have is holing it in landscape tends to activate the side buttons. This gets frustrating.

    I bought one of these a year and a half ago that was an open box. My husband kept saying he didn't need a tablet, he'd just use the computer or mine when needed - except he needed it from the time he came home until he'd go to bed. He really liked HIS Galaxy Tab E. So, when I saw what a fabulous price they were on Black Friday, HAD to get another one for me, because I had recognized long ago that I'd lost custody of the first one I'd purchased. Only complaint is that it thinks a sleeve that crosses the back button on the frame is really wanting to go back rather than awaiting instruction from the much smarter finger (blouses are notoriously not as smart). Really nice product.

    I purchased this because I was in need of something a little more functional to work off of instead of my phone. It's my first tablet and has been serving its purpose well. Screen is large enough to work off of and keep at more of a distance. I haven't had the easiest time locating a decent stand and case yet though. And without one I find my palms hitting the back button fairly often which is annoying.

    Maybe I got a bad unit. It freezes a lot, back buttons and recent apps button do not work all the time have to press multiple times. Charges at very slow times. Took me about 5 hours to charge completely. I will be taking back since bought the protection plan.

    This tablet is perfect for online browsing and such. It lacks quality when it comes to streaming video due to a poor hard to hear speaker. It faces the rear and is not powerful enough to overcome ambient sounds. The battery life is better than expected and the processor does a good job. The only other thing that's not perfect is the location of the dedicated buttons at the bottom. I love the ease of them but I also accidentally hit them on a regular basis.

    The first Samsung tablet start button was very difficult to turn on. The second replacement is not much better. I don't like the fact that I don't have a lot of ram. I have to keep on clearing the ram. The manual does not give a lot of instructions for a new comer to a tablet. The only thing that saved me from frustration was that I have a samsung Tracfone .

    This tablet was recommended to me by the Best Buy rep at the store. If you use apps that require you to hold the tablet horizontally, you will inevitably, inadvertently, press the minimize or back buttons on this thing. There is a good chance that you will do it when you hold in upright as well. Horrible design. I have not found away to disable these two buttons. If you have Amazon Prime and want to watch a movie...forget you, this tablet won't do it. It makes me feel suspect of anything from Samsung,

    I am basically writing this review for my wife since she is the basic user. I set the tablet up for her and it was extremely easy to do. The graphics are excellent and it is easy to operate. The one thing missing, as in most tablets, is a way to completely empty the deleted e-mails all at once rather than having to individually select them. One button to dump all would be greatly appreciated. Have been a little disappointed in the availability of accessories such as screen protection and secure binder for the tablet but understand that this is a new offering in tablets according to Best Buy salesman. Anyway, my wife, who is not heavy on tech savey, finds the tablet easy to use and she does use it a lot.

    I brought this to replace my Samsung Tab 8. The price seemed right , so I got it. The Good. It's big 9.6 inches compared to 7 inches. The Bad. It doesn't have a stylus for note taking. The back button at the bottom is not very responsive. sometimes you need to touch it 3 or 4 times before it works. Same with the touch screen. Plus the the charger is at the top of the tablet. Not at the bottom. I want my old tablet back.

    Too many concerns for me

    I bought this Samsung - Galaxy Tab E - 9.6" - 16GB - Black to replace my Nexus 7 which now has issues such as losing the wireless while the Bluetooth is on, and having to tap the screen many times to get the apps to respond. I bought this model because it appears to have a higher screen resolution than the Tab A (Tab A-1024 x 768 vs TabE-1280 x 800), however, it leaves a lot to be desired compared to the Nexus 7 (1920? 1200). Another issue I was having is when connected to my Bose Soundlink Mini speakers, the audio on YouTube videos lag, making it annoying to watch. Note, it does NOT do this when only using the tablet speakers. Did not have this issue with my Nexus 7, Acer Chromebook nor my daughters iPad Mini. Also annoying is the fact that it is too easy to accidentally touch one the Back button or the Multi Screen button while holding it, making the app you were using disappear. It also seems like the wireless would keep dropping off, even more so in the far bedroom of my house. No issues like that with my Macbook Pro which is in the same room. Many times it seemed to have trouble playing YouTube videos no matter where you were in the house. Videos would just sit there waiting for the cache to surpass it. Took it back for a refund.
