Panasonic Toughpad FZ-B2 Tablet Review
Inexhaustible. Panasonic shows just what it takes to survive an industrial workday with its Toughpad FZ-B2. It impressed us with its casing and performance. However, weaknesses were found, primarily in the screen and cameras.
For the original German review, see here.
More than just strong inner values are needed to withstand the industrial workday. Instead, it is necessary to fulfill a certain quality standard in terms of build and stability. Panasonic's Toughpad FZ lineups are to meet these demands. We are dealing with a fully ruggedized, 7-inch Android tablet powered by an Intel processor and 2 GB of working memory. We have examined the business line before. Not long ago we tested the Windows version, which only looks slightly different. The price for our model ranges from 1000 to 1600 Euros (~$1129 to $1807), depending on the included accessories. Equally robust contenders can also be found among the competition. For example Samsung's Galaxy Tab Active that is available for 500 Euros (~$565). HP's Pro Slate 8 also proved to be a worthy business rival in our test. The review sample was sold for 600 Euros (~$678). The one-inch bigger Sony sports 3 GB of working memory. Buyers do not have to dig particularly deep in their pockets at a price of approximately 480 Euros (~$542) here, either.
