Summary: The Xperia Tablet Z is a beautiful, lightweight Android tablet with a great set of value-added features that complement the idea of using it as a second screen. With an IR blaster, waterproofing, a high-definition display and responsive software, the Xperia Tablet Z is one of the best Android tablets available.
Excerpt: Positioned somewhere between the Z and the Z Tab, the new Xperia Z Ultra is Sony’s latest flagship phone. Actually, calling this thing a phone (or even a phablet) is a bit of a stretch, given its whopping 6.44-inch display. It is, after all, only slightly smaller than tablets like the Nexus 7 and iPad mini.
Pros: Water and dust resistant. Spectacularly bright display with great contrast and wide viewing angles. 3050 mAh battery easily lasts all day.
Cons: It’s crazy big. Odd dock connector location on the left-hand side. Like on the Xperia Z, the tempered-glass front and rear panels are still huge fingerprint magnets. Grainy low-light photos.
Conclusion: The Xperia Z is a great phone and one of the best options on T-Mobile. Though T-Mobile users have a lot of other choices – the Nexus 4, Galaxy S4, HTC One, BlackBerry Z10, Galaxy Note 2, and iPhone 5 – the Xperia Z is the only device that is dust and water proof. If water damage is something you fear, you may want to choose the Z. Luckily, you don’t have to trade performance for water resistance. The Xperia Z is a beauty, but it’s also one tough phone.
Pros: Beautiful glass design, Waterproof and dustproof, Powerful processor, Great button placement
Cons: Glass case prone to fingerprints, Battery life weak
