Summary: The Xperia Tablet Z4 is out now, but we aren't going to say no to Sony to review an older device. I've had this for a few months now and I would still recommend it, and have recommended it to quite a few friends, who were in the market for a new slate.
Summary: The Xperia Z2 is an incremental upgrade from the Z1. With it, Sony delivers their best smartphone to date and fixes most of the Z1's issues. Not all of them, but nearly. And that proves that they listen and work on delivering us, the buyers, better and better devices. Chapeau!
Pros: sturdy, premium design, good screen, fast hardware, snappy and clean OS, lasts long on a charge, stereo front-facing speakers
Cons: camera still needs work, earpiece muffled and not very loud
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,...
Summary: Android tablets are a dime a dozen in today’s saturated smart mobile devices market. The need to provide potential customers with a slate device that performs as well as it looks is very important for manufacturers in order to carve a niche for themselves.
Pros: Excellent Performance, Display has excellent colour quality, Thin and light, Dust resistant and waterproof
Summary: Like all other manufacturer, Sony are currently struggling with problems in the high-end market. We get a faster SoC, a higher-resolution display, more memory - but we rarely see real outstanding features which would set a device apart from the masses.
Pros: integrated noise cancellation + In-Ears, high quality of workmanship, water-proof and dust-proof, high system performance, above average camera, decent battery life
Cons: workmanship partly deficient (sharp edges), gets quite hot under load, switching off certain functions, sensitive back panel
Conclusion: Is the Z2 currently the best full-size Android slate available? Well, that’s a bold claim. Suffice it to say, though, if you're willing to spend the bucks, we can't see many reasons for buyer's remorse.
Pros: Superior display quality, battery life, Light, thin, and attractive, Includes IR emitter and remote function, Resists water and dust
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.
Summary: The smartphone market is not the only one Sony is hoping to make an impact in, with the company introducing what its vision of a high-end Android tablet is with the Xperia Tablet Z at last year’s MWC.
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...
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.
