i traded my open box BB Tab S4 from last years SD for 155 towards this a few weeks ago when it was 349. I was granted 250 trade in by Samsung. So I guess technically I paid 255 for the S5e (the original 155 for the traded in S4 from a few months ago, +$100 difference between 250 trade in value and 350 S5e price). Because the S4 had a small almost unnoticeable scratch on the center of the screen, I'm that OCD. Sure the S5e is a little less powerful, but I dont game on any mobile device and the CPU's are actually pretty close between the two.

I love these tablets in general, OLED and quad firing speakers are amazing and i also like dex (dont use it but like the idea!).

That said my concern with the S5e is performance, it's decidedly mid range, and I can see it stuttering the animations and such, similar to the S4 did. I worry about the longevity of any device that shows signs of struggle now. That said, it's probably fine, it's not like it's trash performance.

I did a little amateur test, I set my iPad 7th gen 10.2 next to my tab S5e and touched post links on a forum at the same time. I figured since 95% of what I actually do is websurfing, I wondered if there would be any difference. Well there was, the iPad opened the posts a split second faster every time. Is it a big deal? Again, YMMV.

I think my One Plus 7 Pro spoiled me. It's kind of underrated how powerful the SD 855 in general is (865 didn't seem to be as much of a jump). The thing trashes the entry level iPad for example which is a speedy machine. To put another way the SD 855 torches a Intel Core M3, too. That and the 90hz and 12GB Ram on my OP7 pro combine to spoil me I think as I'm used to speed in my most used device.


Still like the Samsung OLED tablets a lot, if you're not an apple person I recommend them. I wish the Tab S6 would go on some type of fire sale....knowing Samsung's history though it wont (other than YMMV vary retailers things, which are hard to catch).

If Sammy would sale the Tab S6 for 449 (it's successor should be coming soon) and still grant the current 300 traded in they do for the S5e, or even 250, I'd jump on it. The Samsung trade in program is great, high values, they take the price off the top, and it's so easy to do (they send you a prepaid label, you have 15 days from receipt of your new tablet, no packaging or accessories required just literally the bare tablet, couldn't be much easier). There are most likely overblown tales on SD of them rejecting trade ins, but they accepted mine which had a few scratches without issue. And you can have them send it back if it fails their standards (which they dont seem to have any other than you factory reset it, it turns on, and no cracks) so there was no risk on my end, as I knew I could get 250 for it on swappa in the unlikely event they rejected it.

Searching EPP on slickdeals will show some ways to get EPP. I think student emails can avail of the same pricing as well. Good luck Smilie

I got the S6 recently, and I can't recommend it enough. I got it for reading digital comics and a few games, but even just reading web articles on it is great. The screen quality is amazing.

I hear the AMOLED screen and quad speakers look/sound great, but I hear it's slow... Does anyone have experience with it being annoyingly slow?

Last year i bought the tab s5e 64gb version and to me, it wasnt slow at all. Not fast like my galaxy s20 plus, but not slow. I played some demanding games and they ran good. Too bad i only had it for 2 weeks, it broke while being on the bed. Not sure how it broke, so i think its a bit fragile.
