Sony S Tablet review
12 February 2014
Conclusion: If you’re choosing an Android device, then the Sony S Tablet is a clear front runner. There’s a lot here to make it stand out, even over quality competition from the Samsung Galaxy 10.1 and forthcoming Galaxy 7.7.
Pros: The tactility of the keyboard, The wedge shape, Comfortable typing, Power saving mode
Summary: Surfer's tablet. Manufacturers who are now launching their very first Tegra 3 tablet on the market have to come up with something special to stick out from the competition. Sony does this with the casing, equipment and one special feature: The Xperia Tablet S is splash-protected.
Pros: High build quality, Splash-protected case and ports, Compact size, Low weight, Full-blown configuration, Good screen, Decent battery life, Powerful platform, The build is very high-end. The Xperia Tablet S looks agreeably different compared with routine tablet designs. Its field of use is extende...
Cons: Poor cameras, Moderate Wi-Fi transmission, HDMI only via expensive adapter, The Wi-Fi module could be a bit stronger. Sony's Xperia no longer transmitted in areas where we still could easily browse with other tablets.
Conclusion: We liked Sony's first gen Android tablet, even though it was late to market. This time Sony's really hit their stride with the slimmer and better looking Xperia Tablet S. The 9.4" form factor is a winner for ergonomics and portability while maintaining that big screen experience.
Pros: Unique and ergonomic design, lovely TruBlack display, excellent AV remote.
Cons: Full HD tablet enthusiasts won't find that feature here.
Excerpt: Not long ago, we had mentioned how tears of joy had welled up in our eyes when we saw the performance and the slim package of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 750 . And quite rightly, we reckoned it was the closest an Android tablet got to an iPad 2 . What a difference a month or so makes.
Pros: Unique folded around book/magazine design, Bright and vivid display, Universal remote app is very useful, PlayStation certification is good news for gamers
Cons: Daylight robbery of internal storage space!, No HDMI out - just DLNA streaming, Unable to handle e-book PDFs
Summary: Sony tablet. Sony promises the usual hardware, but unique features for its first Android 3.1 tablet. Does the Tegra Tab offer more than just the fresh look of a magazine?
Pros: Wide viewing angles, Handy size, Stable case, Brilliant colors / high contrast, Good Tegra 2 processing power, Memory expansion via standard SD card, Remote control via IR sensor, 24 month warranty, A screen with great colors and first-rate viewing angles. A case that finally no longer looks like...
Cons: Videos/music can't be played from SD card, High-gloss screen surface, No video out, Short battery life in tablet comparison, High standby power consumption, High body temperature in tablet comparison, DLNA and streaming are nice and good. But to play a little movie from the SD should be within th...
Summary: Sony has succeeded in making an Android tablet that brings to bear a lot of the company's strengths. The design is unique and has a premium feel, the display is fantastic for watching video, and it's pretty nifty to be able to use this slate as a remote control.
Excerpt: Sony has to be different. It is a strategy which has seen the company both rise and fall, but it doggedly refuses to change its ways. So there's little surprise Sony's long awaited iPad rival shows all the benefits and drawbacks this approach brings.
Pros: The wedge design sets the Tablet S apart from the pack and an excellent camera, stylish revamp of the Android UI, exclusive media content and PlayStation certification will win it further fans.
Cons: Build materials lack flair considering the asking price and the choice of a 9.4in screen and tinny speakers undermine its media credibility.
Excerpt: The Sony Tablet S is a unique-looking offering floating in a sea of Android tablet knockoffs. Where you would normally expect to see a 10.1-inch screen, there is a 9.4-inch panel. Instead of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, it runs Android 3.0 Honeycomb.
