Samsung Galaxy Tab E 8.0 is a new Android tablet built to offer great multimedia experience – even to your kids. The slate, which features a massive display and humongous battery, offers a cheaper alternative to offerings in its maker’s Tab S flagship range.
Display and Camera
The huge display loaded onto this behemoth should ensure it makes for a great device for watching movies and playing games. The touchscreen on the Samsung Galaxy Tab E 8.0 measures 8 inches diagonally – just as its name suggests.
But it has a resolution of 1,280 x 800 pixels, which may be considered rather measly for a display this huge.
The tablet is fitted with a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera with an f/2.2 aperture, autofocus and HD (720p) video recording capability. For selfies and video chats, you are provided with a 2-megapixel front-facing snapper also having an f/2.2 aperture.
Power and Performance
Under the hood, the Samsung Galaxy Tab E 8.0 is fitted with a quad-core Qualcomm MSM 8916 processor whose speed is capped at 1.2 GHz. RAM of 1.5GB capacity should enable you enjoy a relatively responsive performance.
The slate will be powered by Android 5.1.1 Lollipop operating system which will very likely have Samsung’s TouchWiz user interface on top of it.
Users are in for non-stop – more precisely, all-day – fun with the provision of a high-capacity 5,000mAh Lithium-Ion battery.
This juicer is expected to support up to 117 hours of music playback or up to 13 hours of video playback. You can even extend usage time with the aid of an Ultra Power Saving Mode.
Onboard storage capacity is 16 GB, extendable by up to 128 GB through the use of a microSD card. The Samsung Galaxy Tab E 8.0 is built to be kid-friendly with a Kids Mode that allows you manage what your children can have access to and how long they can.
The Slacker-powered Samsung Milk Music app is also onboard for enjoyable music listening experience. The Samsung Galaxy Tab E 8.0 tablet features blazing-fast 4G LTE as well as 3G, microUSB 2.0, Bluetooth 4.1, and Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n for connectivity.
