Craving for an LTE-enabled Android tablet with support for America’s largest wireless network, but feel the Galaxy Tab S2 is a little on the expensive side, while the LG G Pad X8.3 fails to hit the sweet spot as far as display size goes?

Then the just-released Samsung Galaxy Tab E should fit you perfectly, given it’s large yet not uncomfortably so, at 9.6 inches, plus fairly affordable. With two-year Verizon pacts, the 5.1 Lollipop-powered slate costs $130, and 200 extra bucks buy you the Tab E free of contractual obligations.

That’s a whopping $270 south of both on and off-contract Tab S2 9.7 prices, though obviously, you get what you pay for. Literally everything about the flagship is watered-down, from the 1,280 x 800 pixels resolution screen to a mysterious quad-core 1.3 GHz SoC (Spreadtrum?), 1.5GB RAM count, 16GB internal storage space, 5MP rear camera, and chintzier construction.

Wait, no, there’s actually one pivotal department the GTab E is better than its cousin in, namely battery life, courtesy of a much larger 7,300 mAh juicer with Ultra Power Saving Mode capabilities. Unveiled back in June in a Wi-Fi-only configuration, this is not to be mistaken for the Tab A 9.7 announced in April, which went after iPad Airs with a familiar 4:3 display aspect ratio, 1.5 and 2GB RAM options, and slightly slimmer body than the Tab E.
