Samsung’s Own Antennagate Has the Galaxy Tab S5e Dropping Signals When it held in a particular way

Galaxy Tab S5e

Right now, Samsung is having quite a bad time. Even if you ignore the release of Galaxy Fold that has been postponed and the Galaxy S10 5G that exploded, yet there is another problem.

According to reports, Samsung’s new Galaxy Tab S5e loses WiFi signal if you hold the device in a particular way.

It might sound familiar to you because it’s very similar to the time Apple managed to ship the iPhone 4 ahead of the Antennagate scandal.

For the time now, it’s Samsung’s turn, and it seems that if you hold the tablet with your hand by covering its left-corner while in landscape and with the camera to the left, you’ll lose WiFi connectivity.

Galaxy Tab S5e Dropping Signals When it held in a particular way: Problem still exists

The interesting thing here is that this is probably the orientation the tablet will spend most of its time in, so it can be expected that how the thing was tested during the stage of development. But alas, the problem still exists.

It is suggested by SamMobile that the issue is the fact the WiFi components are in that particular section of the tablet and if that is indeed where the antennas are, we’d tend to agree.

As we saw with the iPhone 4, the severity of WiFi signal degradation differs as it depends on the person – or the hand – that is holding the tablet, so there is a chance that you may not be affected at all. If you are, though, we’d suggest to hold it differently. Because, you know, that joke never gets old. Right?
