Tablets are not dominating the market as first predicted, as the dawn of new Phablet era has engendered a whole new mentality. Larger Android smartphones have become the trend, and in future too we can expect it to continue to get bigger.
With 7-inch tablets dematerialized because of the existence of bigger smartphones, however, the need of a slightly larger tablet can come in handy; especially while playing games and watching fullHD videos. Looking from that perspective, Samsung Nepal has launched a new tablet called Galaxy Tab E that comes with a 9.6 inch 800 x 1280 pixels TFT capacitive display. The phone is priced at Rs. 27,990 and is the cheapest 9.6-inch tablet you can buy right now in Nepal.
Under the hood, the device is backed by a quad-core processor (Spreadtrum SC7730SE) running at 1.3Ghz supplemented by 1.5GB of RAM and 8GB of expandable storage. It has 5MP rear camera and a 2MP front camera. The phone comes with a 5000mAh battery and runs an outdated Kitkat 4.4 version of Android.
To be candid, the Samsung Galaxy Tab E hardware specs are disappointing, especially considering the asking point of Rs.28,000. At this price point, you can find a lot of other alternatives that can offer you with better design and performance.
