Samsung Tab S6 Lite and Samsung Tab S5e which one is the king?

Samsung tablets are one of the options to be recommended for those looking for a tablet option other than the iPad. Recently, we have seen that the Android tablet options have started to increase even more, but Samsung has been one of the indispensable players in the tablet arena for a long time. We see that the South Korean company has stepped on the gas on the tablet side in recent years. The increasing number of models is the clearest indication of this. In the middle of last summer, a new option such as the Galaxy Tab S6 was offered in the upper segment.  With the S Pen capacitive stylus out of the box.

On the other hand, It has become customary to say that the tablet market is going through hard times, their sales are declining. The reason for this is that tablets are successfully replacing smartphones with large screen sizes and long life of older tablets. It so happened that the scenarios for using tablets make them devices out of time - they watch movies, browse web pages, play and much less often work fully, using all the possibilities to the fullest. The life cycle of smartphones is maximum, they are used until they are broken or they simply do not become obsolete. And this is a problem for the sale of new devices, there is nothing in tablets that will force people to change an old device for a new one. Yes, performance improves, screens get better, software versions are updated, but all this fades into the background, since the use cases for most remain the same. A mass, typical buyer chooses a tablet at the moment and does it according to quite predictable parameters - he is interested in design, device capabilities, plus the overall price / quality ratio.

In 2019, Samsung did something unusual: instead of updating its flagship Tab S4, they first released the Tab S5e, in which they implemented the concept of a successful product with an advantageous price / quality ratio. The model was created for the buyer who is not looking for the very best characteristics, but buys a tablet for the maximum period, while using it typically - movies, games, browsing the web, and so on. This does not mean at all that there are performance flaws, it is more likely that the chipset was not set to the maximum in terms of capabilities, since for most it will be useless most of the time. For a couple of months with the tablet. In this article, we will make a compersion between the Tab S6 Lite and theTab S5e to see who the king is.

 Design & Display.

 Today, just as large-screen smartphones take up smaller surface area than before, the same is true for tablets. The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is not a compact tablet with its 10.4-inch screen. However, when we remember the 10 inch screen tablets of the old, they come in a more compact and comfortable body than them. While horizontal usage was at the forefront in such tablets of the past, we see that Samsung gives priority to vertical use in Galaxy Tab S6 Lite. The front camera of the tablet, the camera placement on the back is made considering that vertical use will be more. In this way, we can say that the tablet does not cause any discomfort.

The Galaxy Tab S6 Lite is considered slim as well as being a tablet with a relatively small surface area. It has a body thickness of 7 millimeters. We can say that a weight of 467 grams is acceptable for a tablet of this size. Although "Lite" is a tablet, Samsung has chosen metal as the material for this product. Aluminum covers the back and sides of the tablet. This combined structure meets the glass in the front. We have a product that does not look ordinary and gives the feeling and impression that it is a valuable tablet. It is not very troublesome to hold and use, it takes longer than normal to give a feeling of fatigue. In short, we can describe a tablet that looks both valuable and ergonomic for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite.

We see the USB-C port on the lower edge of the Android tablet. There is also a speaker on this side. We also see one of the same speakers on the opposite edge. So the stereo speaker is one of the features of this tablet. 3.5mm headphone jack and microphone are among the other elements that are included with the speaker on the top edge. The volume keys, the power button and the second microphone are also lined up on the right edge. We also see the microSD card slot towards the bottom edge. You can open this tray with the help of the needle that comes out of the box. The SIM card slot naturally does not support cellular connectivity.

It would not be wrong to say that the back side resembles the iPhone 7 series devices with the antenna lines. There is an 8 megapixel camera in the upper left corner of the back. There is a Samsung logo in the middle. This logo is carefully placed on the body and further enhances the elegance of the tablet. Towards the bottom, we see the AKG logo. The back of the model in our hands in Oxford gray looks quite generous in keeping fingerprints and dirt.

On different case, the first thing that distinguishes the tablet is that it is very thin: the thickness of the case is 5.5 mm, the weight is 400 grams. It is impossible to call it very light and weightless, but hands do not get tired of holding the tablet even when watching several episodes of some movie.

Please note that the antenna inserts are visible on the back surface, they are distributed closer to the edges of the tablet. The display has narrow bezels, but their very presence is a plus, in the tablet it is possible to accidentally press the screen if the bezels are minimal or completely absent.

There is a USB Type C connector on the bottom end, a microphone on the opposite side, and another on the side. There is also a paired volume control key, as well as an on / off button, a fingerprint sensor is also inscribed in it.

Tab S6 Lite and Samsung Tab S5e which one is the king?

 As far as display is concerned, Samsung Tab S6 Lite comes with a 10.4 TFT display.  It is good for watching movies and even playing. It can be sticky sometimes because it has no accurate control of viewing.  But you can manage without it. It occupies 81.5% of the front of the device. Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite has 1200 x 2000 resolution with 224 PPi.

the aspect ratio is 5: 3, in other words 15: 9. Content in 16: 9 aspect ratio, which is still considered the standard for videos, can be played on this screen with very little loss of field of view. For example, when watching 16: 9 videos on YouTube, only very thin bands are seen on the upper and lower edges. So, watching videos, one of the important things to do on this tablet, is done satisfactorily. Apart from that, the thin and long screen is also useful for holding the tablet vertically and reading books, newspapers or magazines. However, we anticipate that you will hold the tablet horizontally while browsing the web or using most apps.

. The brightness level is sufficient, and the brightness can be adjusted automatically according to the light intensity in the environment. It can be said that it is on average in terms of viewing angles. When you look at the tablet from the edges, you can see what is happening on the screen, but the brightness decreases and the colors become slightly pale. There is no special setting in the screen settings that allows to change the color profile. On the other hand, the black color depth of the screen is low. The black areas look more like dark gray. This reduces the color vividness, causing the images to look pale. Fortunately, the high resolution takes some of the effect of this situation. During the time we experienced the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite, our most common task was watching videos and we didn't have much trouble in general.
We said that the Android tablet has two speakers. These are tuned by AKG and are good at delivering a stereo sound effect. There is a sufficient volume output for a tablet. We also found the speaker good in terms of environmental sound effect and saturation. The bass effect is not felt much. At maximum volume, the treble does not burst. There is a fine and adequate sound system for a tablet at this price level. If you want to watch movies, you can enjoy them without the need for an external speaker or headphones. The presence of a 3.5mm headphone jack also makes your hand a little more comfortable in using headphones.

There is no keyboard accessory suitable for the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite yet, but you can connect a Bluetooth keyboard to prepare your documents or edit. You can also use the S Pen with Office applications. However, as we have experienced from the OneNote application, the palm detection performance of the S Pen needs to be improved.

Speaking of the ready S Pen, let's continue from here. The capacitive stylus is also included in the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite's box.It is possible to comfortably grip this stylus, which is shorter and thinner than Apple Pencil. There is a button on it, just like the S Pen that comes with Galaxy Note smartphones. Using it, you can perform various movements. There is no housing slot for the S Pen on the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite. Instead, you can attach it to the magnetic field on the right edge of the tablet and carry it with you. But the magnetic force is not very high, so it would be good to find another way for long-term storage or transportation. The accessories available for the Galaxy Tab S6 Lite also offer efficient storage ways for the S Pen in general.

It is possible to take advantage of many S Pen functions performed on the smartphone on the Tab S6 Lite. For example, when the tablet's screen is off, take the S Pen in your hand and hold the button on it, while simultaneously touching the pen tip to the screen. The closed screen memo interface will open. Now you can take handwritten notes and draw without having to unlock the screen of the tablet. The notes you take in this way are saved in the Samsung Notes application.

Naturally, the Samsung Notes app offers the best experience of drawing or taking notes with the S Pen. We said above that we have difficulties in writing naturally with the OneNote application. However, Samsung Notes offers the use of writing with a pen on normal paper. We can say that the same is true for third-party applications such as ArtFow and Autodesk SketchBook. On the other hand, the speed of the S Pen is also good, the texts we write or the lines we make quickly fall on the screen. Thanks to its pressure sensitivity, you can also sign artistic works such as pencil works.

Apart from writing or drawing on the screen, you can navigate the user interface with the S Pen. When you bring the tip of the S Pen closer to the screen, you will see the Contactless Command icon on the right side of the screen. Or, you can quickly open the Contactless Command interface by holding down the button on the pen. From here, you can quickly create notes, take screen notes, select a specific part of the screen and take notes, and use tools such as Live Messages, AR Scribble. Within the S Pen settings, you can perform settings such as contactless command, contactless display and so on.

On the flip side, Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e comes with a 10.5 Super AMOLED display which is the same display that the A51 has. The screen occupies 81.6% of the front of the device. Samsung Galaxy S5e has a resolution (1600x2500) with 288 PPI.

This is an excellent display, simply the best in its class, it has no direct competitors. Adaptive brightness, color temperature and other settings let you choose how the colors on the screen appear for you.

Many people consider AMOLED screens to be poisonous in color for old memory, but their color accuracy is high, which means that there is no talk of any toxicity, this is a perfectly tuned matrix, you can watch movies with good quality. In short, everything is fine here - resolution, brightness, colors, viewing angles. In its price segment, this is one of the best displays, there are no alternatives as such.

Unlike the older model S4, as well as the S5, the S5e does not support S Pen, you can use third-party styluses, but there is no additional layer in the screen, the accuracy will be normal, not high, the degree of pressure will also not be recognized. Keep this in mind if you need a drawing tablet.

It doesn't matter if you have an HDMI cable or a keyboard case, you can still directly connect a wireless keyboard, mouse to the tablet and turn on DeX mode. In fact, this is the use of a tablet with a DeX interface, which is as much like a computer as possible and allows you to work comfortably in different windows, a kind of work mode. Our phones are used in our DeX station, and this is very good, since they provide ample opportunities, in particular, we connect different peripherals this way. And this tablet is no exception, you can get exactly the same features in it. It's a workhorse, but only for those who need it.

There are four speakers at the ends (tuned by AKG); the sound that the tablet gives out is very loud, and in most situations you crank it not to the maximum, as in other devices, but by about 65-70%.
