Expert Review

27 February 2015
  • 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

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...

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,...

9 July 2014
  • 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
  • Cons: Expensive, Subpar camera

Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet Review

9 July 2014
  • 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

Expert Review

1 June 2014
  • 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.
  • Pros: + Amazing Camera, + Excellent Battery Life, + Great Display
  • Cons: - A bit on the big and heavy side, - Can get rather hot, - Can only record 4k in short bursts

Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet

24 May 2014
  • Summary: While the battery is a concern, the Xperia Z2 Tablet is still a good-looking slate that's loaded with more than enough power for anything you're likely to throw at it. It's a good choice if you're looking for a more affordable iPad alternative with 4G LTE -- particularly if you've ever lost a gadget...
  • Pros: The Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet's processor is searingly powerful and copes well with games. It has a bright, vivid display and its razor-thin body can be taken in the shower without worry.
  • Cons: It loses its battery far too quickly in standby mode. Huge bezels around the display don't look good and make the body needlessly big, and its slim design has resulted in the whole thing being a little flexible.

Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet Review

20 May 2014
  • Summary: Inside the Xperia Z2 Tablet we find a 22.8 Wh (6,000 mAh at 3.8 V) battery, which is a reasonable size for a tablet this thin and light, but not hugely amazing. Windows 8.1 tablets I’ve reviewed in the past, such as the Asus Transformer Book T100 , managed to pack a 30+ Wh battery into their 10-inch...

Review Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet

13 May 2014
  • 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.
  • 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.

Sony Xperia Z2 Review: Excellent Cameraphone, Everything Has Been Upgraded from Predecessor, Design’s Not Impressive (Video)

13 May 2014
  • Conclusion: Sony Xperia Z2 gets a 9.2 out of 10 for design, 9.6 out of 10 for hardware and 9.5 out of 10 for OS and UI. The smartphone gets from us a 9.43 out of 10 and it’s the best Android cameraphone I’ve tested this year. It’s also a major upgrade from the Z1, that was a letdown.
  • Pros: improved screen from Xperia Z1, lighter than you’d expect, good battery – 11 hours, good stereo speakers, excellent camera, night capture is great, great video capture, lots of voice call options, better grip, waterproof and dust proof, 3 GB of RAM
  • Cons: low benchmarks, same design format for about 2 years, same UI for 2 years, could be brighter, big headphones coming out of the ears, a bit of overheating, lots of bloatware
