Android tablet makers had a brave run in the iPad in its early days, but competition has narrowed as tablets and convertibles Chrome OS and Windows 10 are flooding the market.
Samsung, however, still offers a slew of low-priced Android tablets, including the popular Galaxy Tab E. This economical tablet has not been updated in several years, but it's still worth considering its current price of $ 150. However, for the right price, the similar Galaxy Tab A is the best buy.

There are several versions of Galaxy Tab E being sold online. Let's take a look at each of the templates available so you do not spend your money on an outdated product.
The easiest ways to differentiate each model of the Galaxy Tab E are the display sizes and version of the Android operating system. The original Galaxy Tab E of 9.6 inches was released in 2014, running Android 5.1. This larger version is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 quad-core 1.2GHz CPU and comes with 1.5GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. A microSD card slot allows you to expand up to 128 GB of storage space.
The 8-inch version of the Galaxy Tab E, released a year later, has very similar specifications – a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, 1.5 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage – but supports LTE connectivity for the AT & T, T -Mobile and Verizon. .
Owners of any of the Galaxy Tab E versions are satisfied with the performance of the tablets and their display quality, based on thousands of ratings averaging between 4.2 and 4.6 stars in Best buy and Amazon. On the other hand, some users disagreed with the quality of their 2 and 5 megapixel cameras and the low output of the speaker.

Although the general reception of the Galaxy Tab E is overwhelmingly positive, it is important to remember that this tablet was launched four years ago when our demands for mobile devices were not what they are today. Compared to modern smartphones and tablets, the Galaxy Tab Es screen resolution of 1280 x 800 is poor, and its processor is weak. Also, please be aware that Google is no longer compatible with Android 5.1 Lollipop, so you might want to upgrade to the latest Android 7.1 Nougat operating system.
The Galaxy Tab E is a solid low-budget tablet for everyday use, but the Galaxy Tab A, an upgraded version of the Galaxy Tab E 8-inch, has twice the storage, a more powerful processor and runs the Android 7.1 Nougat OS from Cashier. You can occasionally find the Galaxy Tab A for sale for about $ 150, making it a better buy than the Galaxy Tab E.
There is a third version of the low-cost tablet from Samsung, called Galaxy Tab E Lite. I suggest you ignore the attractive price of $ 70 and stay away from it. The tablet runs an older version of Android – Android 4.4 KitKat – and displays a fuzzy screen of 7.0 inches and 1024 x 600 pixels.
