The smallest Samsung Galaxy Tab E is now available at Verizon

 

Verizon is the only carrier to currently offer the 8-inch tablet.

Samsung Galaxy Tab E (9.6-inch, WiFi) T560N Tablet Review

 

Welcome. Samsung's Galaxy Tab E invites users to explore the world of tablets. The brand-new and inexpensive entry-level tablet leaves us with a favorable impression overall, but the lack of power prevents an even better score.

inexpensive, good build quality, loud speaker, doesn't get hot

all-plastic design, one USB port, performance not up to par, only 8 GB of storage

Samsung's Galaxy Tab E is an well-executed entry into the world of tablets. The review slate is solid and features all required communication modules as well as two cameras. The build quality is without flaw and the size is a good compromise. The IPS...

Samsung Galaxy Tab E review: Relatively cheap, but ancient and outdated

 

Reasonably cheap, but the ageing Samsung Galaxy Tab E simply doesn't cut it as a budget tablet in 2017

Price ; Build quality and design

Battery life ; Overall performance ; Display

The Galaxy Tab E might be relatively cheap at around £140, but there are simply superior alternatives on the market right now. Amazon's new Fire HD 8 (£89.99 From Amazon ) is much cheaper, has better battery life and offers a better experience for...

Samsung Galaxy Tab E Review

 

Samsung Galaxy Tab E is one of the best well-branded options available to you in 2015 if you are hell-bent on buying a tablet of this size, especially for watching...

• Big size affordability ; • Expandable storage ; • Aspect ratio great for watching movies

• Low-res screen ; • Old TouchWiz interface ; • 16:9 screen shape isn’t best for surfing web ; • No auto-brightness control sensor

The Samsung Galaxy Tab E is tablet made for watching videos. It’s a nicely built device with option to add SIM and micro SD cards for added utility. And since it lies in the below 20k price range, it offers a great value for money while giving tough...

Samsung Galaxy Tab E Review

 

Samsung launched the Galaxy Tab E (SM-T561) in India for Rs. 16,900, along with the Galaxy Tab A in India that we reviewed recently. It has a large 9.6-inch display, comes with 3G support and also has voice calling capabilities, which is rare to see...

Decent camera; Good Battery life; Good build quality; SIM support with voice calling

Low resolution display; Huge and bulky; No ambient light sensor; Gaming performance is below average

Overall, the Samsung Galaxy Tab E is an average 3G tablet for Rs. 16,900, which is priced a bit high considering its specifications. It is quite heavy and bulky, runs on old Android KitKat OS and the gaming performance is below average. Even though the...

Kort testrapport Samsung Galaxy Tab E (9.6-inch, WiFi) T560N Tablet

 

Welkom. Samsung's Galaxy Tab E nodigt gebruikers uit om de tablet-wereld te verkennen. Het splinternieuwe en betaalbare instapmodel maakt een goede indruk maar laat wat punten liggen door zijn gebrek aan rekenkracht.

goedkoop, prima bouwkwaliteit, luide luidsprekers, wordt niet te warm

volledig plastic design, één USB-poort, erg matige prestaties, slechts 8 GB opslag

De Samsung Tab E is een evenwichtige tablet die - met een prijskaartje van 180 euro (~$200) - een over het algemeen gunstige indruk maakt.

Recensione breve del Tablet Samsung Galaxy Tab E (9.6-inch, WiFi) T560N

 

Benvenuto. Il Samsung Galaxy Tab E invita gli utenti ad esplorare il mondo dei tablets. Questo tablet del nuovo brand è un economico entry-level che lascia una impressione positiva nel complesso, ma manca di potenza il che impedisce un punteggio migliore.

economico, buona qualità di costruzione, cassa potente, non si scalda

design tutto in plastica, una porta USB, performance non adeguate, solo 8 GB per l'archiviazione

Il Samsung Tab E è un buon tablet che - con un prezzo di 180 Euro ($200) - lascia una impressione complessivamente favorevole.
