Reviews for the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet

87% Review Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet | Notebookcheck
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.

iPad Air vs Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet comparison review: which 10in tablet is best?
Source: Macworld.co.uk English
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 Xperia Z2: What we REALLY thought of this Android fondleslab
Source: Reg Hardware English
Compared to the original Z Tablet the Z2 is thinner, lighter and more powerful but the price has stayed the same. I’m not sure you can ask for more. A larger battery wouldn’t have gone amiss but would likely as not have had an impact on the size so I can understand why Sony forwent it. Is the Xperia Z2 tablet our fave ‘droid 10-incher here at El Reg? Yup.

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.

The Z2 has a few issues. The port covers are more fragile than on the Xperia Z2 smartphone, and friends at sister website Know Your Mobile managed to snap theirs off. The screen works fine most of the time, but seemed to have trouble picking up touches to the navigation keys occasionally. The 8-megapixel rear camera is also disappointing.

Like the first Tablet Z, the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet is a tremendously attractive and thoughtfully designed tablet, but this time battery life and the screen are much better. It can’t match the iPad Air for all-round performance and its superior selection of apps, but its lower price helps it nudge ahead of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition in the battle for best full-sized Android tablet.

The second generation of Sony's 10-inch Xperia tablet is still one of the best high-end devices with the Android OS. It is mostly impressive when it comes to its excellent design, very pleasant dimensions, and waterproof casing, as well as its brilliant performance. Many will like that it comes with an almost pure version of Google's operating system, without pumped-up software modifications.

iPad Air vs Xperia Z2 Tablet comparison: thinner, lighter, faster than iPad Air - why you should choose the Xperia Z2 tablet
Source: PC Advisor English
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 main difference is that the iPad Air runs iOS7 and the Xperia Z2 Tablet runs Google's Android OS. Both have their supporters - which one are you?

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.

80% Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet review: Large Android tablets get their cool back
Source: PC World English
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. The Xperia Z2 Tablet is water-resistant, thin, and, because of its light build, easy to utilize on the train ride to work to get some work done. 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.

As users of Apple products including Macs and iPhones, the iPad Air is the natural and more fitting choice for us.

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 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.

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.

Simply put, Sony has done a superb job with the construction quality of the Xperia Z2 tablet.

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.)

Comment

Model:

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.

10.1": The netbook/subnotebook has a quite small display format. Nonetheless, it is a common format for netbooks. The advantage is, that the subnotebook/netbook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes. It is difficult to use high resolutions. » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


0.425 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
