Multi-window mode has the additional feature of pulling images and text from one window screen to another window in both Tablets. They also come with a Radio app that picks up local stations without using an internet connection.

Tab A has the SIM and Micro SD card slot are on the side. Samsung features two switches on the back for turning the display on/off.

The operating system is well compatible with Samsung's TouchWiz interface. Samsung has come a long way with its interface and made it natural to use.

Besides the essential toolkit, Samsung adds parental control software on both the tablets and the mode gets activated by a user-given password. Once entered, the tablets show only user-defined apps and files exclusively. For exiting the mode, users need to give the same password.

Both Samsung Galaxy Tab A and Galaxy Tab E offer superb design and excellent usability. The Tab E has both 3G and 4G supporting voice calling which is certainly a cool feature and should be appreciated.

The only concern is the storage space that Samsung features in both the tablets. We hope Samsung will soon introduce a 32GB edition of both the tablets.
