The Samsung Galaxy Tab E sports a 9.6 inch display with a 1280 by 800 pixels resolution. Admittedly, this 9.6 inch screen is not the best in the entry level segment in terms of pixel density. However, what the display lacks in pixel density quality it more than makes up for in brightness. At 452 cd/m, the brightness of this glossy display is quite satisfactory and is almost impervious to reflections in really bright sunlight. Thus, it is possible to use this tablet in bright sunlight.
One of the best things about the Tab E’s display is that it retains maximum brightness even when not plugged in. Colors on this glossy display are not too saturated. Additionally, this IPS display has exceptional viewing angles. Thus the display is visible even in sharp angles. Though this IPS display cannot compete with that of the pricier Lenovo 10 Pad, it is still an exceptional screen given the price of the Galaxy Tab E. Additionally; the display promises a unique user experience both in the outdoors and indoors. Generally, this 9.6 inch screen does not disappoint.
Design and Built
With an uncanny resemblance to the Galaxy Note 3 Neo, the Galaxy Tab E has the same design as other mobile devices from the South Korean tech giant. The plastic casing of this tab is well constructed with rounded corners and void of gaps between different sections. Furthermore, the rear panel of the tablet has a rough texture that prevents the tablet from slipping from your hand. One of the unique design features of this tablet is the non-chrome Samsung logo that sits on its back panel. The primary rear camera with its chrome bezel protrudes slightly. The back panel of this tablet has a unique patter.
Interestingly, to gain accesses to the tablet’s inner components such as the battery, you have to remove the display first. This means that it is virtually impossible to remove the battery. In terms of weight, the Galaxy Tab E is not the lightest tablet out there as it weighs 490 grams. However, this is the standard weight of entry level tablets. With a thickness of 8.5 mm, the Galaxy Tab E is also not the slimmest tablet on the market. In regards to physical dimensions, this tablet measures 9.52 inches in height and 5.89 inches in width.
The 9.6 inch display of this tablet is flanked by a home button that is sandwiched between two capacitive navigation icons. On top of the tablet is a USB port, which is also used for charging.

These rockers are easy to access with the power button placed just below the volume rocker. This tablet comes with a power adapter and leather cover.
User Interface and Software
The Samsung Galaxy Tab E runs on the android 4.4 kitkat operating system. It is still not clear whether Samsung will offer an update to a newer OS version.

Released four years ago, this processor is backed by an ARM Mali 400 MP4 graphics card. For multitasking this tab comes installed with 1.5 GB of RAM. The 8 GB of internal storage capacity available on this tablet can be expanded up to 128 GB using a micro SD.

However, Samsung offers a 3G version of this tablet that costs more than the standard WLAN device. The tablet supports both GPS and GLONASS.

Housed under the rear panel of this machine is a 5000 Mah battery that according to the manufacturer can last up to 8 hours of web surfing.

The main camera comes with a 5 megapixels resolution while the secondary front facing camera has a resolution of 2 megapixels.
