86% Review Sony Xperia Tablet S | Notebookcheck
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. Our test will reveal its other specialties.
Sony XPERIA Tablet S Review
Source: Slashgear English
If you’re looking for a great stand-alone Android tablet, this isn’t it – it wasn’t made to be the one perfect stand-alone tablet and it doesn’t pretend to be that piece of equipment. Instead you’ve got the best Sony has to offer in a tablet form-factor, and with a quad-core processor from NVIDIA to back it up, it’s perfectly capable as a Sony companion for the rest of your Sony devices.

The most obvious rival to the Xperia Tablet S is Samsung's 10in, S-Pen toting Galaxy Note 10.1. But compared to Sony's smooth and sexy aluminium effort, the build quality now seems disappointing and we prefer the Xperia's more open, free-for-all stance on multi-tasking.

The Sony Xperia Tablet S has a unique design and useful Android additions, like the universal remote and light multi tasking capabilities. It's a nice home-entertainment-focused alternative to the Asus Transformer Pad TF300, but our enthusiasm is tempered by its bugs, oddball docking port, and poor battery life. The best overall 10-inch Android tablet out there is still the more expensive Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, but you may be interested in the Xperia Tablet S if you're primarily looking for an armchair, living room companion.

Sony hasn't had a great track record in tablets because of their experiments at making unique tablets. By moving back to a more traditional design, the Xperia Tablet Z is a good 10-inch Android tablet with some unique features like water resistance, IR blaster and NFC. The problems it that it's pricing puts it on the high end without many of the attributes that make the premium tablets.

We couldn't wait to get our greasy mitts on the Sony Xperia Tablet Z, having been teased ever since it was unveiled. But we didn't go into it blindly - so often, we've waited for the next big thing, only to feel that sense of 'meh' almost immediately. We never felt that with the Sony Xperia Tablet Z. The Sony Xperia Tablet Z is a triumph, a tablet that genuinely deserves consideration when you're in the market for a new top-end gadget. If you're against the iPad for any reason, or even just agnostic over your OS, the Sony has taken the best of Android and fused it with its own innovation to make a device that delights in more ways than we can count.

Sony Xperia Tablet Z: Slim and mean
Source: Inside HW English
Let’s first start with the bad part. Xperia Tablet Z shares a lot of common hardware with its older brother, Xperia Z smartphone. On the bad side that means quiet speakers (at least we got 3 more), and screen with smaller viewing angles. Unfortunately, list doesn’t stop there as all the software bugs Xperia Z introduced (and most of them cured after series of updates) are presented in Tablet variant several months later.

Sony Xperia Tablet Z: Our new top Android ten-incher
Source: Reg Hardware English
There’s very little to criticise the Xperia Tablet Z over. It’s thin, light, powerful, well-made, waterproof and it has a memory card slot. The battery life could be better but the cameras are both excellent by tablet standards, and the media playback apps and hardware are superb. In fact, I’d say the Tablet Z is the most convincing 10-inch tablet on the market at the moment and certainly the best that Sony has ever produced. If I was thinking about splashing out on a new smartphone and a new tablet, I’d spend the money on an Xperia SP and an Xperia Tablet Z, respectively. Never before would Sony have topped either my phone or tablet want-list, let alone both, so it’s clearly doing something right.

With a price tag of Rs 46,990, the Xperia Tablet Z is very pricey when you consider its overall performance. It has some neat tricks up its sleeve, like the IP55/57 certification and the IR blaster, but the comparatively low onboard storage, mediocre camera and battery life and the intermittent lag in the UI takes away from an otherwise pleasant experience. You can get a 32GB 4th Gen iPad with 3G for this money and that’s the route we’d recommend if you have this budget, as you’ll be getting a better display, camera and battery performance for a little less.

Xperia Tablet Z has taken the 'best Android tablet money can buy' title in India today. It offers a slew of features such as India-specific content, a good skin, slim and sexy form factor, and some brilliant power under the hood. On the downside, the device may be late in receiving Android updates and 16GB onboard storage isn't the best. Nonetheless if a powerful, weatherproof Android device is on your horizon with price not being a problem, you can consider this device. It is a worthy contender to the iPad, which will still be your primary weapon of choice if a robust apps ecosystem is what you want.

Sony has made a very desirable tablet in the Xperia Tablet Z. We particularly like its striking svelte design and features that you don't get with rivals such as NFC, its waterproof casing and infrared. However, its slightly lacking performance means the Nexus 10 will save you some money or the iPad 4 will give you a smooth experience for the same price.

Is all this enough to make up for the high price? The answer has to be no. We enjoyed using the Sony Xperia Tablet Z, but it’s 25% more expensive than the Nexus 10, and while it boasts a more elegant design and tougher construction, it fails to compete with that device’s screen, or its battery life. In short, the Tablet Z isn’t good enough to justify the extra cost.

Consumer tablets are really differentiating themselves now, and each of the leading ones have different strengths. The Transformer Pad Infinity has an optional keyboard dock that turns the tablet into a veritable laptop replacement. The Galaxy Note 10.1 has a pressure sensitive stylus and dual-screen multitasking. Microsoft's Surface RT has Microsoft Office, and no other tablet can touch Apple's iPad when it comes to offers a range of truly tablet-optimized apps, games and educational content. If you want the thinnest, lightest, and arguably fastest Android tablet on the market, the Tablet Z is the way to go, but you'll pay a premium and miss out on some unique features offered by the competition. Our Editors' Choice award remains with the Note 10.1, as its stylus and multitasking features make it more useful than any other tablet we've tested.

Sony gives you a lot for your $499: You get the thinnest and lightest tablet on the market -- and one that's water-resistant -- an innovative remote control, and all-day battery life. However, the sound could be better, and you can pick up the ASUS TF700 with a 1080p display for $379. The $499 Galaxy Tab 10.1 isn't nearly as sleek, but its pen input makes that device more versatile.

Sony's made its best tablet yet. It's a stylish relaunch of the company's Android tablet series, but we can't shake the feeling that the Xperia Tablet Z's benefits are harder to sell than, say, the crisp display resolution of the Nexus 10 or the app strength of the iPad. Features like NFC and the infrared blaster ensure it lives up to its promise as a TV companion, while the screen is capable enough to share among friends or prop up for an impromptu TV-watching session.

The Sony Xperia Tablet Z is a noble attempt by the Japanese firm to draw attention away from the more fashionable Samsung and Apple competition. The tablet's IP57 certification, lightweight and ultra-slim design, coupled with its entertainment and productivity services make it a compelling choice for any business user who is regularly required to travel for work. However, the Tablet Z's core offering is hampered by niggling issues such as poor software additions that can hinder performance and average battery life.

The Sony Xperia Tablet Z features the most impressive design we have seen to date. its most significant benefit is the thin and light form factor, packaged in an elegant -but tough- body. The battery life is excellent and the performance is really good for such a super slim chassis; as a matter of fact, the entertainment experience is highly enjoyable. We have always known that “specs” and synthetic benchmarks don’t tell the whole story and the Sony Xperia Tablet Z is probably the embodiment of that principle. In absolute terms, it performs very well, but when you look at it from the prism of design, aesthetics and overall user experience, it performs brilliantly. The Xperia tablet Z is everything that tablets were meant to be: fast, thin, light, with a good battery life — and you get some water and dust resistance as a bonus. What’s not to like?

With the arrival of the incredibly priced Nexus 7 and 10, the game has changed for Android tablets, but Sony seems to have received the memo, scrunched it into a ball and eaten it, never to mention its existence again. If your heart is set on a Sony tablet to match your living room set-up or if the waterproofing angle is a big deal, then the Xperia Tablet Z won’t let you down with a lovely screen, good performance and life-saving battery life. But at that price next to the iPad and Nexi, for many the Tablet Z just can’t compete.

Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet

The Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet is one of the more anticipated devices. The tablet comes with a Qualcomm MSM8974AB processor, which is a high end ARM quad core SoC with a clock rate of up to 2.3GHz. The Qualcomm Adreno 330 graphics adapter is capable of clocking up to 550 MHz. With a 6000 mAh battery, most people would not think much of it. However, the Z2 has a feature called stamina mode, which can help to prolong the battery life greatly, making it able to rival tablets with 8000 mAh battery.

One of the most attractive features of this tablet is the display. While its size of 10.1 inch is standard in this range, it has an amazing resolution of 1920 by 1200 pixels providing crystal clear clarity on it screen. What’s more, the tablet only weights 0.425 kilogram, which is probably the lowest weight of a tablet in its class. Connectivity will also not be an issue as it comes with Wifi and Bluetooth 4.0 wireless technology as well as GSM 3G HSDPA for Broadband Data and LTE 4G.

All in all, the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet is an amazing tablet if used for the right purposes. The mobility it provides as well as the clarity of the display is certainly something to think about. If the price is within budget, this phone is definitely worth looking at.

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.

It’s also a great way to present your creative work, like digital drawings and photography, to clients. The X-Reality color enhancement makes them look sharper. It’s light enough for extended handheld usage, so, with a few apps that can mimic the painting process, you could use the device for outdoor sketching and drawing. (Beware of sun glare, however.) Because of the waterproof feature, you may choose to operate the Z2 Tablet by the pool or in the bathtub with little or no anxiety of water damage.

The Xperia Z2 Tablet is definitely a solid rival that could cause some minor concern for Apple, so let's hope the company is innovating hard behind the scenes to launch something that enables us to write a comparison review in the future that can recommend the iPad without a shadow of a doubt, because right now, it's tricky to be completely convinced that Apple's ahead of the game.

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. We just wish that Sony would ditch the 16:9 screen ratio, as aside from watching films on with, it doesn’t lend itself well to many standard tablet tasks, such as reading in bed. If you have last year’s model, you won’t be missing much, but for anyone else thinking of grabbing an iPad rival, starting at £399, it’s still well worth considering.

The only aspect of the Z2 Tablet’s hardware that’s subpar is the camera, which may be a Sony Exmor RS sensor, but generally produces poor results. Luckily the camera on a tablet isn’t that important, so it’s unlikely it’ll affect anyone’s purchasing decision. But the good hardware of the Xperia Z2 Tablet is let down by poor software. Android on a 10-inch tablet just isn’t all that special, lacking when it comes to both applications and features, where iOS and Windows 8.1 succeed respectively. There’s nothing that’s especially terrible about tablet Android, but it’s still behind its competitors and there has been little improvement since the last time I used it.

Ultimately it is a matter of personal preference. Both these tablets stand head and shoulders above the rest of the 10in tablet world. They are thin and light, well made, designed and built. They offer great displays and excellent performance, decent cameras and so on. and they are priced the same.

The Xperia Z2 Tablet has all the right numbers - 1920, 801, 6000. That would be enough if it wasn’t for the fact that tablets win big on criteria you can’t put a number on - how they fit into your life, what they allow you to do that your phone’s simply too small for. Sony’s still got some way to go in packaging up its screen, performance and software expertise into more than a collection of brilliant components - a tablet with a real edge over its rivals. As it is the Z2 Tablet is a great movie machine, but a tablet costing this much needs to do more, and it’s out-worked and out-played by iPads, Samsungs and Transformers.

I haven’t been this impressed with a 10-inch Android tablet since the Samsung-manufactured Nexus 10. If I were considering a larger-sized tablet, I’d look Sony’s way.

Its only major setback is that it starts at $500, so you’ll really have to consider if what it offers is worth the cash you’d have to fork over.

iPad Air vs Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet comparison review: which 10in tablet is best?
Source: Macworld.co.uk English
As users of Apple products including Macs and iPhones, the iPad Air is the natural and more fitting choice for us. We'd choose the iPad Air not only due to its stunning design and easy to use software, but also because it ties in well with the our Apple ecosystem including iCloud, our purchased apps and our AirPlay compatible speakers. The Xperia Z2 Tablet is definitely a solid rival that could cause some minor concern for Apple, so let's hope the company is innovating hard behind the scenes to launch something that enables us to write a comparison review in the future that can recommend the iPad without a shadow of a doubt, because right now, it's tricky to be completely convinced that Apple's ahead of the game.

Xperia Z2 Tablet is the first Android tablet that rivals or beats the iPad Air: Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet video review
Source: PC Advisor English
If I am right that would in turn be bad news for this device: the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet. That's because this superbly thin-and-light Android tablet is at the same premium pricepoint as is the iPad Air. And, unusually, it offers a broadly similar premium experience. In some ways it is better.

The Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet is even slimmer and lighter, while it retains the original's distinctive looks and adds an eye-scorching Live Colour display. Meanwhile an improved processor and more RAM ensure that the tablet is right near the top of the performance tree. However, with the iPad Air and a whole range of improved Samsung tablets arriving in the interim, the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet simply doesn't impress as much as its predecessor did - but that's not to say it isn't one of, if not the, best Android tablet on the market right now if you're a fan of specs and design married together in an interesting and unique way.

When people trot out the tired "evolution, not revolution" cliché, it's usually to cast evolution in a pejorative light. I don't think that's fair. There's plenty of value and enjoyment to be had in the continuous refinement of a formula, especially when it one day results in a new iteration that works far better than the original could've.

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.

The Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet is surely among the fastest, most impressively designed Android tablets around, but it's somewhat unimaginative and lacks a distinctive feature to justify its $500 price tag. The display is good, but not spectacular; performance is good, but not industry-leading; the design is remarkably thin and attractive, but feels delicate. The Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 debuted at $549.99, but can be had for the same $500 price these days. It's got a sharper display, longer battery life, and built-in stylus support that is unrivaled in Android and iOS counterparts. The iPad Air, meanwhile, has a more durable design, sharper display, and better tablet-optimized app selection for the same price as the Z2 Tablet. Sony's latest play for the hearts and minds of tablet users is a good one, and might win folks over with its design, but it fails to distinguish itself in any other meaningful way.

90% Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet review: slim, light, powerful Android tablet is best iPad Air alternative
Source: PC Advisor English
The Xperia Z2 is a great looking and well built Android tablet. It is staggeringly thin and light for a 10in device, has a great screen, expandable storage and good performance. We like the OS and the camera. Indeed, our only issues with the Xperia Z2 Tablet is occasionally laggy web browsing, and the fact that the screen is poor under natural light. But priced in line with the iPad Air this is right at the top of the shop.

The Z2 Tablet may not be hugely different from its predecessor, but it's an improvement in all the ways that really count. It's slimmer, lighter and faster with an absolutely beautiful screen, and even has impressive battery life, lasting 15 hours in our video playback test. It's the best Android tablet by far, and there's little to choose between this and the iPad in terms of speed, ease of use and screen quality. If you want a 10in Android tablet, buy this one.

The Z2 tablet is a marked improvement over the original, it's powerful, light and inexplicably thin. Where it falters is in the design, not in terms of how it looks but more in how functional it is. The Z2 tablet might just be too wide for some - the bezels on the side are considerable but it 's certainly not a deal breaker. If you're looking for a large-tablet and want to keep Google as your main port of call then the Z2 should be at the top of your list.

Sony’s still got some way to go in packaging up its screen, performance and software expertise into more than a collection of brilliant components - a tablet with a real edge over its rivals. As it is the Z2 Tablet is a great movie machine, but a tablet costing this much needs to do more, and it’s out-worked and out-played by iPads, Samsungs and Transformers. Having said all that, the single-minded approach to media consumption will appeal to many, as will the all-day battery life and waterproof construction, and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that.

Priced at AED 2499, the Xperia Z2 Tablet is one of the finest tablet’s that I’ve come across. It’s the only tablet at it’s size that makes the iPad Air look thick and heavy. Simply put, Sony has done a superb job with the construction quality of the Xperia Z2 tablet. They have also made sure to equip it with a beautiful screen and all the latest specs currently available such as the quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor with the Adreno 330 GPU and 3GB of RAM.

The Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet doesn't offer anything particularly new or exciting beyond being terrifyingly thin and light. However, solid specs, a decent screen and the added flexibility of the dock port and memory card slot make it worth a close look if the idea of a larger Android tablet appeals.

The Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet is set to launch in the UK in March, with a price of £399 for the 16GB WiFi only model, £449 for the 32GB WiFi only model and £499 for the LTE model. The WiFi-only model can have a built-in capacity of up to 32GB, while the LTE version is limited to 16GB. There is a MicroSD slot, though, so you can always add further storage (up to 64GB if you need it.)

Convincing people they need an Android tablet - let alone a premium one - is no easy task. But the Z3 Tablet Compact is a lovely thing. It's a slim, light and reliable couch or commute companion. The screen looks brilliant despite being "only" Full HD. The waterproofing may sway people away from choosing an iPad Mini.

Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact review: Rain or shine
Source: GSM Arena English
Phones and tablets are converging - phones are already in the 5.5-6 inch range and 7-8 inch tablets are more popular than their 10" siblings. There was some speculation that the 7.9" iPad mini will eclipse the 9.7" iPad Air, but with the underwhelming mini 3 launch we're not so sure anymore. The Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact is a direct iPad mini competitor and Apple's neglect of the mini makes this a perfect time for Sony to strike.

Considering that it is last year's product, the iPad mini with Retina Display is hanging in there. We prefer the Sony, principally because it is more powerful, thinner and lighter, has a better camera and - glory be - it's cheaper. But the iPad mini remains a stunning device, and for those that prefer Apple it won't be a let down.

Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact vs Nexus 7 comparison review: Sony's new 8in tablet is a strong Nexus 7 rival
Source: PC Advisor English
Overall, both the Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact and Nexus 7 are brilliant smaller tablets. The Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact will offer you more in the way of power, connectivity, battery and capacity, but it'll cost you £100 more, so it really comes down to your budget on this one. One thing to keep in mind, though, is that there are rumours that the Nexus 7 is going to get an update soon, so it might be worth hanging on to find out what Google has up its sleeve before you buy the current version.

Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact hands-on review: A smaller tablet from Sony at last
Source: PC Advisor English
It's great to see Sony finally make a smaller tablet and the 8in form factor is proving to be increasingly popular. The Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact is super thin and light and is waterproof to boot. Hardware is decent but not mind-blowing so rivals like the Galaxy Tab S offer more gadgetry. Software is easy going with one key new feature in the form of PS4 Remote Play. It's a decent effort from Sony but we are waiting for the all-important price.

The Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact has an annoyingly long-winded name, but a decent slug of technology inside its skinny frame. I've got a couple of big reservations about this one though: given it's got so many Sony-branded elements within it, the price isn't likely to be low, and will therefore struggle against the likes of the Nexus 7 and even the iPad Mini. The screen is also lower-res than those around it, and while the Sony Bravia name comes to the rescue, my worry is day to day browsing won't look as sharp.

A strong first attempt at tackling the 8-inch tablet space, the Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact just comes up slightly short in a number of key areas. With a marginally better screen, improved camera and rejigged audio Sony could give Apple some concern. As it is, however, based on first use we would say the company is readying another also ran for market – albeit a very impressive one.
