Samsung and Verizon have buddied up to bring the 2017 version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab E to Verizon, offering a decently powerful tablet that should be perfect for those bed-based Netflix binges at a reasonable price.

The news isn’t all that surprising — Verizon has offered previous iterations of the Samsung Galaxy Tab E, and while the tablet certainly isn’t flagship quality, it still has a lot to offer.

Under the hood, the specs aren’t amazing but they should offer plenty for most basic users. The device offers 1.5GB of RAM, coupled with 32GB of storage — though thankfully if you want more storage you can get more through the MicroSD card slot. The battery on the tablet comes in at 5,000mAh, which is capable of lasting 24 hours of use on a single charge. The display comes in at 8.0-inches, with a resolution of 1280 x 800.

When it comes to software, the device ships with Android 7.1.1 Nougat, and it’s unlikely that this tablet will be a focus for Samsung to bring to Android 8.0 Oreo.

Perhaps the best thing about the tablet is that it comes with support for 4G LTE, so if you’re looking for a budget tablet that you can bring on the road with you and not lose a data connection, then this may well be the right tablet for you. The rear-facing camera on the tablet comes in at 5 megapixels, while the front-facing cam is 2 megapixels. Safe to say, you probably won’t be buying this tablet for its camera.

So how much will the new Galaxy Tab E on Verizon set you back? Well, you have a few options. You can get the tablet for as little as $10.41 per month for 24 months, $150 with a two-year contract, or you can just pay $250 outright to get the tablet without having to deal with plans or monthly payments.

The Galaxy Tab E is an entry-level tablet, and while it may seem enticing there also may be better options for you in your price range. If you’re looking for something slightly more powerful, it may be worth looking into Samsung’s Galaxy Tab A series, which is a little more expensive but has a lot to offer.

There’s a big problem with Samsung’s new Android tablets
The back of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 Ultra.

“Android tablets are a lost cause.” I come across this recurring theme more often than I would like, but there’s some truth to it. As someone who pushes Android tablets as a daily workhorse, I’ve defended on numerous occasions how the ecosystem has matured over the past few years after Android 12L and foldable arrived on the scene.

But compared to the iPad, Android tablets keep falling short. With every brand trying to create its own unique software flavor for tablets that vary dramatically in terms of firepower, no two Android tablets seem to offer a uniform experience. iPads, on the other hand, do deliver experience uniformity irrespective of the screen size.

How one bad decision is ruining all of Samsung’s new phones
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 in cream, blue, and black.

This summer’s Galaxy Unpacked event was the usual great fun. We got a new Galaxy Z Fold 5 with an improved hinge and more powerful chip, plus the Galaxy Z Flip 5 with a cover screen that’s large enough to see what’s going on. These were joined by the return of a much-loved design in the Galaxy Watch 6 Classic, with some refinements to make it even more classy, plus a standard Galaxy Watch 6 and a full new lineup of Samsung tablets.

However, Samsung’s latest product lineup also confirms the road I’ve feared the South Korean gadget maker has been on for at least a few months now. Samsung is getting more serious and less fun and whimsical in its product designs, especially when it comes to color choices.

3 reasons I’m disappointed by the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 with its main display open.

During its Galaxy Unpacked July 2023 event, Samsung dropped a bunch of new products for everyone — from next-generation foldable phones to new wearables and a diverse range of tablets. One of the new device reveals was the Galaxy Z Flip 5, which has been expected along with the Galaxy Z Fold 5.

Though I’m still fairly new to the scene of foldables, I have seen the appeal — and in some cases, I prefer the form factor over the standard glass slab that most phones are nowadays. But honestly, there isn’t a lot with the new Galaxy Z Flip 5 that’s drawing me in. Instead, it’s a bit underwhelming.
