The Galaxy Tab E is a 9.6-inch Android-based tablet that was released by Samsung’s mobile division in 2015. It garnered overwhelming praise for its excellent build quality, which it achieves despite its all plastic build. Its bright and beautiful large screen coupled with loud stereo speakers made it a near-instant favorite among multimedia lovers. Although non-removable, users were happy with the 7300mAh battery cell that serves up a decent 15 hours of battery life on normal usage. Modest performance and poor cameras also weighed down the device, but going by the price tag, you really get what you pay for. The Galaxy Tab E is undoubtedly a very viable tablet for everyday use.
