Sony Xperia Tablet Z2
4 October 2014
Summary: Sony has impressed us again with its latest take on the tablet, and has created what could be one of the best slates to guzzle down media on. Its waterproof skills are still a treat, and as it’s lighter than the iPad Air, you won’t even notice it in your bag - and that’s what you want from something to kick back with when you have some downtime, wherever you are.
Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet Review: Ridiculously Slim and Powerful Android Tablet
24 July 2014
Excerpt: We review the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet! Sony wowed everyone when they unveiled the Xperia Tablet Z with its almost impossibly thin body, great design and awesome hardware. That’s probably the reason why the company opted to go with the same general design with its successor, the Xperia Z2 Tablet, injecting a few refinements to […]
Conclusion: The Xperia Z2 Tablet is not perfect, but it’s a winner. Its $500 price tag is steep for an Android tablet, but this time around Sony is a step above most devices out there. When your biggest rival is the iPad, you’re on the right track. The Z2 matches or bests every Android tablet out there.
Pros: Incredibly thin and light, Vibrant, high-resolution screen, Comfortable to hold, Powerful processor & specs, MicroSD for more storage, Water and dust resistant
Cons: Lacks tablet app selection of iPad, Rear camera does not impress, A few of Sony’s UI modifications are clunky, Must remove waterproof cover to access Micro USB, $500 is expensive for an Android tablet, So thin that you can flex it in your hands
Conclusion: The best way to define the Xperia Z2 is that it smoothens the rough edges on the Xperia Z1. It’s by no means a revolutionary product but with 6-month product cycles, Sony never intended it to be one. But what a good job has Sony done fine-tuning a product that started its journey with the original Xperia Z. The Sony Xperia Z2 has everything that defines a flagship product and then some. Simply put, I find it as the best Android smartphone that is currently available.
Summary: Fast tablet. It is the thinnest and lightest tablet of its class, yet there is no apple on the case. There is also no aluminum case, only plastic. A high-resolution display, a fast Snapdragon 801 and the familiar IP-certification complete the package. Our review shows why it is still not enough for the top spot.
Pros: Thin construction and low weight, Fast SoC, MHL 3.0, Micro SD port, Protected against dust and dirt, Good display, Decent battery runtimes, Sony makes a lot of things right and equips the tablet with a fast and modern SoC and a great display. We also like the current Google Android 4.4 KitKat.
Cons: Display frame susceptible to pressure, Position and sound of the speakers, Mediocre microphone, The tablet has excellent multimedia features, but the sound is not really convincing. We would have expected better speakers.
Excerpt: We review Sony's Xperia Z2 Tablet, the full ten-inch follow-up to last year's Tablet Z, packing a gloriously vibrant screen and updated specs. Time was, Apple’s iPad was the sexiest tablet around by miles. Chunky plastic Android wannabes just couldn’t come close for design, but then Sony’s Xperia Tablet Z turned up and made a nation of tech lovers weep with joy.
Pros: Still gorgeous and water-resistant, Vibrant updated screen, Lighter and thinner, SteadyShot and new camera features
Cons: Rain is its nemesis, No 4k or slow-mo video, Not a huge evolution
Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet review: A top-tier slate with a familiar face
22 April 2014
Conclusion: Not only is the Tablet Z2 the thinnest and lightest tab Sony has ever made, but also it's far and away the best. It's trim design and strong spec sheet makes it a strong competitor against similarly sized tabs from Sony's arch-rival, Samsung.
Pros: Incredibly thin and waterproof, too, Snappy performance, Sony's Android UI is thoughtful and lightweight
Cons: Relatively short battery life, Glossy screen, Middling speakers, Both cameras are underwhelming
Summary: The Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet is a great piece of hardware. The wonderfully light and thin chassis makes this tablet a pleasure to hold, and its rich, vivid screen is fantastic for watching that latest episode of "Game of Thrones." The fact that it's water-resistant means you can catch up on the Starks while taking a bath, too.
