Going by your description it is a WIFI tablet, not 5G.

That said just tether it to your mobile.

Anytime.

I have owned a few 5G tablets and never used a SIM, worse I have a 5G laptop with a 5G SIM but barely use the SIM as I always find WIFI.

Yes you can byt just going to settings, Connections and mobile hotshot.

Not sure if the S10 supports auto sharing hotshots between your account devices.

I will, I have noticed that some apps have a split screen like the WhatsApp I am currently using, is there any way of having a full screen?

WhatsApp is a unique pain for this, in the end I preferred it.

To change this there was a setting under Advanced but I cannot find it.

Other settings to definitely try when you have 2 or more Samsung devices are these.
