SAMSUNG GALAXY Tab S5e SM-T720N WiFi 韓国版 並行輸入品 (Black, 128GB)
10.5” WQXGA Super AMOLED (2560x1600) 287 ppi
Galaxy S5eの主なスペックは、チップセットがSnapdragon 670、ディスプレイは10.5インチ2560×1600ピクセル、カメラは1300万画素＋フロント800万画素。さらに大きな特徴として、本体サイズは245×160×5.5mm、重量は400gで、かなりの薄さと軽量化を実現しています。片手で持ってみるとその重さは驚異的。そしてここまで薄いタブレットもなかなかありません。
- Super slim and super light. You can blindfold yourself and you wouldn’t know if you were holding an iPad pro or this tablet. No plastic, just metal, and glass.
- Round corners, no sharp edges, making it more as an IPad Pro feel. Overall, high-quality look and feel are defiantly showing.
- 10.5” AMOLED screen is a 2560x1600 resolution that shows where your money is going to. You can’t really explain it unless you see it.
- Took it outside on a clear sunny day and the image quality is still superb in direct sunlight. The Ambient light sensors do their job in adapting to a sunny day to a dark room.
- The deep blacks are excellent, and I love that you can tweak the saturation and white balance. You’ll be surprised that many Android tablets will not allow you to do that.
- Touch response shows not glitches, delay, or hiccups.
- The speakers are the best so far that I’ve heard from a Samsung tablet in a long. I would have to compare it to the 2018 IPad Pro. Extremely loud, great base, and an overall shock on how good they are as you can see the vibration coming out of the tablet (might be a Con but you’re never going to put it up that loud.)
- Any day performance will 100% work. Web browsing, movies, etc. A quick and snappy performance
- Was really impress of the wireless performance and in range. I never got below 100Mbps at my location (2 story house, one wireless router- no extensions).
- Surprisingly I found the desktop mode very productive. Running multiple apps in windows it made multitasking very effective. I’m not a fan of multitasking on a tablet but if you Bluetooth a keyboard and a mouse, you have a pretty decent laptop. This feature I believe is called the DeX mode.
- Playing Netflix for one hour I lost around 7% of battery life. It was playing at 1080p and on 80% brightness.
- Overall battery life is really good. I got two days, close to 11 hours of web, tablet gaming (medium power consumption) and Netflix. This is a pretty good steal given that some higher tablets need to be charged by the end of the day.
- A wise decision that they made the power button and the Fingerprint reader the same. Yes, the scan is fast, no complaints.
- Type-C USB 3.1 Gen1. This means it’s fast charging.
- Found no difficulty in holding the tablet as my hand position never covered the speaker grills.
- The Bixby assistant feature is just like a Suri. Had it in a loud/crowded room and Bixby picked up my voice. The field microphone will make this tablet become a google home in theory. I think this feature will be great if your hand are full.
- A minimalist design that follows the saying “less is more.”
Cons and Oks:__________
- It’s thin. I love this but without a case, this tablet will bend. I wouldn’t even trust it in my backpack without a case. You will be on high alert if you sit on it so you need a case of some sort.
- No HDR support which makes no sense since the display supports HDR.
- No headphone jack. This is not a phone, it’s a tablet and the best sound quality comes from wired headphones.
- This is an issue when you start doing “major” multitasking. The result is that the tablet slows down. You should always need maybe 2GB of free space but sadly the additional 4GB will not cut for deep multitasking (Get the upgraded RAM, if possible, if you’re playing to use multitasking beyond the average person). This will apply to those who want to make this tablet their main form of a laptop, which I'm strongly against this idea.
- No S-Pen support. This doesn’t make sense.
- Face unlocking is still in the testing phase in my eyes. You can use it, but the finger scan is still the way.
- Yes, there is bloatware. You can never get away from it.
- The camera is nothing to brag about. I don’t even use it as any phone within the past two years can provide similar quality.
- Android software overall has limited apps that support a tablet design. I hope this changes in the future but expect a lot of apps opening up as if it was a phone app, but just expanded. You will get some pretty big black borders.
- 0-100 I got a 2.30-time frame.
- Pretty cool that the back camera doesn’t stick out that much.
- I playing ultra-high games (60fps) will make the tablet shutdown. I played Legends on ultra-high and this issued occurred. Put the graphics on medium and it was fine. Just an FYI.
- Wish that added more screen as there is still a considerable amount more needless black border. It’s still an improvement from last year.
- I was told that Samsung will offer a $130. Kinda high in price for a keyboard case.
Samsung took a book out of Apple and followed the design method “less is better.” It’s slim, light, and beautiful in image quality. The battery life is great and for the price, it beats paying an arm and a leg for an Apple tablet. I will say that of all the tablets out there, this one considers the closest of a laptop replacement (But not there yet). Apple’s 2018 IPad comes close, but some unique software options to make this a unique experience. Some hiccups are on this product but the pros out powers the cons here.
Overall: First impressions, a premium experience without the ridiculous price tag. Still not a laptop replacement but an excellent tablet.
Hope I was a help to you.
Update: received my second S5e yesterday, same problem. I'm hearing from other people the same thing as well.
The first thing I noticed is the size: While having the same screen size as my iPad Pro 10.5, the Galaxy Tab is noticeably shorter, narrower, thinner, and lighter. It uses a wider aspect ratio on the screen (which has pros and cons), but for most movies and TV shows, than means the image you see on the Galaxy Tab will be larger than what you would see on the same size iPad due to it's more square-ish screen. (See my photo for size comparison -- the video is also about .6" larger diagonally on the Galaxy Tab.)
I spent a lot of time setting up the tablet just how I wanted, which for now kind of replicates an iPad. I chose the option to remove the app drawer and stuck with having folders of apps on my home screen. I then spent some time with the various apps I'm used to running on iOS along with apps that I normally ran on my phone. I have to say I am overall happy with the performance of the tablet. It is not quite as fluid as an iPad -- for example, when rotating the screen or opening app folders, the animation is occasionally ever so slightly jumpy rather than totally smooth. (I have the 128/6GB version, as I wanted the extra RAM.)
The speakers are really good, and there is no headphone jack. I have to say, given how thin this tablet is, I just might buy the argument that one wouldn't fit inside. (But I'd still rather have one.) A PASSIVE USB-C headphone dongle is included. This means that the included dongle will not work on many other USB-C phones. On the other hand, an active adapter like the one from my Google Pixel 3 will still work on the Galaxy Tab.
I am enjoying the screen -- it is bright and readable outdoors. It dims pretty low too, which is good for night reading.
I'm not a big gamer, and so my various casual games have no problems running on the tablet.
About the only issue I've been having is that I'm finding the fingerprint scanner/button a bit finicky. It's not clear to me the right way to turn on the tablet. Sometimes it seems like I need to press and hold, other times, just touch my finger to it, and other times it has trouble reading my finger on the first attempt. Some of this might be getting used to a very small/narrow reader, but it is a little annoying. At the time I wrote this, some other reviewers are saying there is a problem with the wifi when you hold the tablet sideways and cover the antenna with your hands. I could not recreate that issue on my device.
So, I'm pretty pleased and I think this will let me finally ditch the iOS ecosystem (and lightning cables). My actual star rating would be 4.5.
PS -- I do think a case is needed for this. It is very thin and, while it doesn't feel flimsy, some reinforcement is good. At the moment, Samsung's official (non-keyboard) case is a mind boggling $70 for a basic plastic folio case. I ordered one elsewhere, but I do think the official one looks good. Maybe if it goes on sale sometime.
Honest Reviewer gave a VERY comprehensive review on April 26, 2019, so I will only add a few things. Thin and light weight, easy to hold although I'd recommend a case of some kind for any tablet. Screen is beautiful. Speakers/sound is the best we've had in a tablet. No headphone jack understandable to get this thin so you will need bluetooth enabled headphones or speakers for external audio. Our Wi-Fi performance has been good, we have tried to duplicate the wi-fi issue reported by others that wi-fi reception varies with tablet orientation and have not been able to replicate the problem. The default Samsung keyboard covered up a critical portion of one account sign in screen, if this happens to you I would recommend installing Gboard (the free Google keyboard) or Swiftkey ($), which allow vertical size adjustment of the keyboard, before setting up other apps -- you can always switch back to the Samsung keyboard later if you like it better. Seven months in, no problems!
