If you’re after a wonderfully thin and light tablet made for entertainment, the Tab S5e is made for you. It is all of those things, and one of the nicest takes on a mobile big screen, because it’s light, simple, and easy to get across.

Samsung has cut down on the internal specs of the device, while keeping the glitz and glam on the outside.

If you like watching movies and TV shows while on the move or even when just lying on your couch and don't want to disturb everyone with the TV then this is an excellent option for that. However, we can't really recommend it for anything else.

The screen and speakers and great, as is battery life, with weaknesses few and far between. The lack of 3.5mm jack irks, while we prefer the games and apps library of iPad OS, but that's about all that counts against this Samsung.

Samsung has cut down on the internal specs of the device, while keeping the glitz and glam on the outside. It could definitely do with more RAM, which would have helped with the DeX mode. But Samsung truly makes up for all that with the brilliant display and audio on the device. The Galaxy Tab S5e can elevate the media viewing experience with these two features to flagship levels.

Just make sure you’ll find a use for it in the long-term, as your smartphone does everything it can, and is usually right by your side. Provided you do this, it will be a welcome addition to anyone’s home.

The tablet is the slimmest and lightest we have seen so far and the display looks crisp in nature. The in-built Samsung DeX works fine, though it is not yet ready to replace your laptop. The speaker performance is quite excellent and the software experience is smooth as well. The performance is one area of the tablet, so don’t expect too much from it. That said, the tablet still makes sense if you are one of those who like to consume lots of content on a large screen.

It’s meant to hit the sweet spot between the affordable Galaxy Tab A-series tablets and the high-end Galaxy Tab S4 (or the upcoming Tab S6), which should make it an ideal choice for people who are enticed by the idea of a gorgeous bigger, portable AMOLED screen but don’t see the point of spending the exorbitant high-end price. It has an awesome screen, outputs rich audio, has a long-lasting battery and if you are accessorized, the Dex can be really handy for more aggressive usage.

It is light-weight with an excellent display and speakers, which are crucial in a tablet. The Samsung Dex support means you can connect this to a bigger screen, get mouse support for better productivity. The keyboard is useful for quick notes and on-the-go usage. The battery life is excellent. The major let down in the tablet is the processor, which is just not as powerful. The overall performance could be smoother, faster for the Galaxy Tab S5e.

A thin, light, affordable tablet that does it right

from Ausdroid

This is affordable without being cheap and nasty, powerful without being overly so, and capable of handling everything thrown at it. Really the only aspect that is a bit disappointing is the camera.

The mid-range processor powering the Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e helps bring its price down, but Samsung has retained the key features that make it so appealing — the screen and the sound. Although the low pixel density does occasionally show at times, the screen is, for the most part, a capable one. Coupled with the excellent speakers, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e is excellent for media consumption, most Android games, and every other purpose you can think of for a tablet.
