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.

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.

Bridging the smartphone-notebook gap

This really has a great keyboard, something that most hybrid computing devices miss out on. It is hard to find fault with the performance, particularly with the added productivity boost that the DeX Mode offers with the desktop-like computing experience. This is the most productive an Android tablet has ever been, and that itself is worth its weight in gold.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e is the best Android tablet available in the market as of now. The competition may be stiff from the likes of Apple but with the Tab S5e, you’re getting so much more that makes the iPad appear like an expensive paperweight. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e not just boasts the features to take on the tablet market; but also, enough going for it to disrupt the laptop segment.

The right balance of hardware and features at the right price

from Firstpost

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e is a well-designed tablet that packs great hardware given its pricing. My only gripe is the shortage of RAM and the lack of HDR10 support with the otherwise gorgeous display.

A fairly affordable premium Android tablet

from Android Authority

The dearth of apps that have been optimised for the experience plays a big role in this. However, if watching video content, browsing, and maybe editing a few light documents is all that you want to do, the Tab S5e is a great package that should delight users.

The Tab S5e competes against the iPad 9.7 and the Microsoft Surface Go, which are priced in the same range, and while it beats them in some regards, it loses in others. At this price point, it’s pretty obvious that you can’t get them all, but if you’re looking for an affordable tablet with premium features that doesn’t cost a fortune, the Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e is certainly an option that’s worth considering.

An excellent Android slate

from Tech Advisor

We're really impressed with the latest tablet from Samsung, bringing the brilliant screen from the Tab S4 into an even better design. The excellent speakers remain and the speakers are great, too. You'll only be potentially put off by the lack of a headphone jack and the mid-range processor.
