i am also looking at the S5e. Thinking whether to get this or the Tab A 10.1 (2019) since i only use it for movies.

It seems like this tab s5e has the wifi issue in Singapore as well.
Tested at the cee show 2019 by rotating the tablet to landscape mode (front cam on the left) and using my palm to cover and support it.
Indeed it dropped till no signal at all.
Still contemplating to get this tablet with this known issue
That is sad the issue is also affecting local sets. Currently, the solution is to turn it the other way round so that the camera is on your right hand side instead. This way, the Wifi signal is preserved in landscape mode.

Ya, that's kinda sad.
Consumers need to hold the tablet in the "correct" orientation to fix samsung problem.
Maybe that's y they are giving free book cover now to hopefully counter or minimize the issue from surfacing. Lol

Iím currently using Tab S4, it it worth to upgrade to Tab S5e?

Like the thinness of the tablet, s4 quite bulky
Stick with your s4 as it has the s pen function and a much better processor. S4 is still considered as a flagship tablet whereas s5e is not.

I think processors are comparable. If you don't need the pen, I think tab 5e is a better buy as it has 6gb ram for some version

Managed to see the tablet at Gain City. Its much thinner and lighter compared to Tab S4.

Now a question of where to buy to get the best price 🤔

There is a new Tab A 8.0 (2019) coming up with S-Pen support. Think of waiting for this or get S5e. S-Pen is very good to have. But don't know when SG will launch it.

Definitely cheaper than Samsung.

Tab A screen resolution no good
My parents got 1, don’t like the resolution. Tab S5e has better resolution.

Indeed. I tried to cover the area and saw immediate signal drop.

If itís hardware issue, gg to the buyers.
