Android tablets have come along way since my first tablet, the Motorola Xoom. This tablet feels very minimal and sleek. Currently running Android Pie I believe. Setting up seemed about same vs a phone.
The newest hardware has no buttons on the face, making it look like a giant S10+. The big draw for this tablet is smaller size and price. I'm glad I waited for the S5e over the S4. The spen is nice but not for an extra $100+
I've played music, movies and games on this tablet and has performed great. Also paired some BT devices like headphones, speakers and keyboards with no issues. Really like to multitask with this tablet: play some games on my PC while I stream a movie or music. Also bought an app called Pulse that sends texts from phone to my tablet.
The bad: as with tablets, always seems like Android software struggle with apps that only show a Black screen.
Great everything about it!!!!

Great Android Tablet!

Although I was mainly using my 5-year old Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 for watching videos, running some apps when I needed to was becoming painfully slow. I was ready for something a bit faster, a little bigger and with more built-in storage. This new Galaxy Tab S5e (64GB) is exactly what I was looking for!
The size is great! For a 10.5" screen, having a thin bezel all around and no physical front home buttons, it is not a whole lot bigger than my old 8" tablet. It quite a bit smaller than the (2016) Galaxy Tab A 10.1" tablets that my kids have. And SO THIN!! It's thinner than the 8" and weighs about the same, if not a little bit lighter! (check out the pictures comparing the sizes)
This display is great, with the Super AMOLED screen and a resolution of 2560x1600. So far, the new OneUI that comes with the Android 9 (Pie) is quite a bit of an improvement over their previous UI (which is why I've never really liked Samsung phones, even though we love then many other Samsung items we own - from TVs to Appliances). Also, I like the "double-tap" to turn on the screen (similar to my LG phone, which I always seem to try on all screens), just wish it could turn the screen off the same way. My only nit-pick is that when scrolling to the next Home screen or application page, the "slide" when you barely swipe could be a little quicker, especially in Landscape (you can swipe fast to make it go faster, but it's not what I prefer to be required to do). Also, one thing I wish that would work with it is an S-Pen (the kids' Tab A tablets have them).
The thin on/off button is on the side and is also the fingerprint scanner. It is recessed a little bit to keep from hitting it accidentally. The scanner seems to be fairly responsive, even with its smaller size, so no issues so far. You can also set up facial recognition, but I won't be using it.
Battery life has been extremely good so far. When on Standby, it may use about 5-10% a day. After a week of usage, with maybe 7 hours of video and 5 hours of streaming radio, I finally decided to charge it again, and it was only down to 25% left.
The cameras are OK, but I won't really be using it for pictures. It has a 13MP rear camera and a 8MP front camera. The rear camera does have some of the different modes you see on most phone cameras, such as Panorama, Hyperlapse and Live focus, along with the Pro mode to manually changes some of the exposure settings.
Luckily, I mainly use bluetooth headphones when listening to music/videos as there is no longer a built-in 3.5mm headphone jack. But a USB-C to 3.5mm adapter is provided.
All in all, this is a great Android tablet with a nice, lighter-weight design!
Prepare to be stunned by a tablet display! The Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e has a gorgeous Super AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2560x1600. The front of the tablet is almost all screen with very small bezels and the back is made out of a metal (aluminum I believe). The Snapdragon processor never left me wishing for more speed and the included microsd card is very nice to have alongside the built in 64GB of storage. There are four speakers two on each of the smaller sides of the tablet and they get surprisingly loud and are clear. The tablet is so thin and light I don't think your hands would ever get tired from holding it. Samsung's Android skin called "OneUi" is very slick and alongside their UI customization app Goodlock you can get the added benefit of multi-tasking free floating windows and other features that are unavailable on other Android tablets. There is an included fast charger that allows you to quickly charge your tablet or you can disable the fast charge in the tablet settings. Samsung really knocked it out of the park with this tablet it's down right perfect.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e excels at what it was designed for — movies, games, browsing, and reading. The amazingly thin and light body is only a part of the appeal, as the stunning 10.5-inch AMOLED screen makes watching it a joy. This is whatFull Review
A:AnswerAlso a lot of sites and professional reviewers are saying it does NOT have a GPS. TechTablets.com proved it does not have one by showing a GPS app showing ZERO GPS data. And Amazon questions were answered by actual customers showing that it has no GPS as well. And Samsung themselves advertises no GPS at all in their specs for the S5e, not even in the manual. What gives? If no GPS is in the specs, or on Samsung's own website how can we be sure it has GPS?
