Specs comparison: Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 vs Galaxy Tab S5e

No one expected a true successor to the Galaxy Tab S4 so soon, and the newly announced Galaxy Tab S5e doesn’t claim to be one. Samsung is clearly trying to put the Galaxy Tab S5e as an option on the market to tide over people until the Galaxy Tab S5 arrives, so those who have a Galaxy Tab S4 will not find the need to upgrade to the Tab S5e.

But that doesn’t mean people won’t be interested, and while we can’t say anything about the Galaxy Tab S5e before we get our hands on it, we can make it easy for you to see how the new tablet compares to the Galaxy Tab S4 as far as the specifications and hardware are concerned.

They should have included S Pen support. I see absolutely no use for a phone or tablet without S Pen.


I’m still paying SamSuck for my fully loaded S4……..


S5e doesn’t feature a 3.5mm headphone jack, that’s a difference that should be noted.


I’d have bought one if it had an S-pen and an LTE option. The S-pen is a real miss, I think, since the S3 and S4, and now all iPads have stylus support. The iPad can be had with stylus support for $279 on Amazon this week (albeit with no pen included).

The tab s4 is just too expensive. I think I may be looking at an iPad for the first time after two Nexus, a tab S2, and current tab S4 tablets.
