Confirmed. Second S5e tablet same problem. As soon as my hand covers that corner the wifi drops out. Tablet has a major design flaw. @samsungmobile @samsungmobileusa @samsungus @sammobileofficial @techcrunch @bestbuy #galaxytabs5e @foxnews I just added a new video of a short speed test while holding and laying flat.

Reports has said that the issue arises when you hold the tablet in a landscape orientation (the front camera being on the left side). Some users has said that it causes a weaker signal to the tablet, while others has said that their connection is disconnected entirely.
Despite that, users of the new tablet has said that if you hold the tablet in portrait mode or with the front camera to be on the right, the problem doesn’t occur.
As for the moment, Samsung hasn’t offered any statements on the issue. It is also unknown how widespread the issue is to the units of the tablet. Reports has said that replacement units that were sent to customers dealing with the problem still faced the same issue.
Pokdepinion: Well this doesn’t look good at all from Samsung’s perspective. I know it’s just a tablet, but people spent their well earned money on them. Hopefully we’ll hear soon from the company itself.
