In the end they didn't take my iPad - I didn't notice that the front glass panel is starting to lift. So ended just getting one at retail price.
the trade up decent if your set is in mint condition. i was quoted 180 including the 100 overtrade for my s2 9.7 lte set. was deducted 50 due to a small dent.
i just walked away and managed to sell it on carousell for 240

bought my s5e 64gb wifi set during the shopee gss sale for <480 with voucher and credit card code plus shopback rebates

Yeah, would have been nice if my previous unit was in mint condition - the $100 trade-up value helps to offset the cost. But in the end, i only got the $60 discount.

Of course tab s5e is better than mi pad 4 in term of specs, build quality and UI. Mi pad 4 wins in term of price.
So, your decision for either tab s5e or mi pad 4 will be specs vs cost?

Cost aside, I would personally go for the S5e - gives me that peace of mind in terms of how mature/stable the firmware is.

I just got an iPad Air as a gift. I can't be using both tablets at the same time. I'm really wondering if I should let go of my s5e.

Any thoughts?

Do u game more or watch videos more? If game more, keep the iPad Air. If you watch more videos than u game, keep the TAB S5E.

I bought and returned the ipad air while waiting for S5e. Can it be returned? Apple store gives a full refund within 14 days of purchase.

My reasons were: aspect ratio cos I watch alot of videos and I didn't like the screen quality.

I feel apple can hold value. Samsung usually free fall after a while. Again it depends on urself. As in which aspect ratio u like and how u intend to use it

So i'm experimenting with cases right now. Purchased a cheapo TPU case and yes - even with the TPU case, the book case will still stick to the S5e. I don't like the sides of the tablet exposed as it's an easy target for dents. But due to the additional thickness, the book cover flap won't close flat - it will only be useful as a stand.

I have more cases coming on Friday - update you guys!

Hear say it’s very lagging.
I think gaming on Tab S4 is better than S5e

Is the S5e a good upgrade from S2 LTE? Thinking of trading my S2

For me, yes cos my s2 battery is weak and had to use in power saving mode at all time. The trade-in of s2 for new tablet s5e is no brainier for my case
