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 the design along with the ...
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: Sony Xperia Tablet Z2 tiene todos los ingredientes para convertirse en uno de los tablets de referencia en 2014 . Un procesador potente con una batería que le complementa perfectamente , ligereza y elegancia en su diseño y protección contra el agua y el polvo son algunas de las características que dan personalidad propia a este terminal. Otro de los aspectos a tener en cuenta es la buena relación calidad/precio .
Pros: Rendimiento, Sonido
Cons: Biseles demasiado anchos, Cámara en condiciones de poca luz
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 frame, although the ARM components inside the Z2 Tablet should be more power efficient than their Intel counterparts.
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 through water damage.
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.
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.
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
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. The first iteration was something that was very appreciated, and was deemed one of the best of 2013 , and, much like it has done with its smartphone lineup, Sony has further refined its vision and introduced a tablet this year which is even better than its predecessor.
