Sony Xperia Tablet S

 

A solid update to the original Tablet S, but there are better Android tablets for the money.

Interesting design ; Full-size SD card slot

Low-res screen ; Ageing software ; Uncompetitive pricing

Sony does offer a few appy extras that aren’t just about trying to sell you things, though. Socialife is a Sony-made social network aggregator that bungs you Facebook and Twitter updates into a single, tablet-friendly feed. It also has a tab for RSS...

Still one of the best Android tablets around, especially for movie buffs

Lovely design ; Especially nice to hold in portrait ; Great video quality ; Movies Unlimited

Not Full HD ; Sounds a touch soft

Sony Xperia Tablet S

 

Sony came late to the tablet game, and when it did finally rock up with the Tablet P and S, it was hardly playing its A game. So now we have the Xperia Tablet S in our hands the question is obviously, has Sony addressed the issues, and is this a device...

Stylish, well-built, decent price, powerful, compact dimensions

Sony's entertainment services are baffling and over-expensive,

Sony was always going to struggle to get traction with tablets because it's a fairly crowded market and there's lots to choose from. Sony might make solid hardware, but so do most companies these days, so what is there to sell us on the Xperia over...

Sony Xperia Tablet S review

 

This second gen slate gains the Xperia moniker, a Tegra 3 chip and loses the chunk of the Sony Tablet S . With an IR Universal Remote, full SD card slot and DLNA sharing skills the Xperia Tablet S is gunning to take over your living room. But should...

Manages multi-tasking without drama, Quirky extras, The luxurious feel of aluminium

Full HD would be nice, Not the most powerful tablet out there

Sony Xperia Tablet S review

 

Thinner, lighter and splashproof

Great for music ; Mini apps ; Premium and distinctive build ; Powerful processor

Terrible battery life ; Underwhelming screen ; Glitchy camera ; Dated Android OS

This is the second time out the gate for the Sony Xperia Tablet S. It originally launched in September, but was quickly pulled from the shelves thanks to a manufacturing fault. That's unfortunate for Sony, because in the interim the Google Nexus 10,...

Sony Xperia Tablet S review

 

Sony's best Android tablet yet, with some useful family-friendly features

Sony Xperia Tablet S review

 

The Sony Tablet S was one of the more impressive Android tablets when it debuted in 2011. Now with its Xperia Tablet S, Sony has revised the design, upgraded to Tegra 3, and updated its media ecosystem.

The Sony Xperia Tablet S has a comfortable, high-quality design, a sharp-looking screen, storage expansion, and potential as a universal remote alternative.

Unfortunately Wi-Fi currently shuts off whenever the tablet sleeps, waking the tablet from sleep takes way too long, and its screen flickers intermittently. Price is a bit high for what's offered.

The Xperia Tablet S has an excellent design, but there are cheaper alternatives that provide similar and better tablet experiences.

Sony - Xperia Tablet S

 

The Sony Xperia™ Tablet S should not be confused with Sony's previous tablet with a similar name (The Sony Tablet S) as the specs, UI and subtle cosmetic design changes make this a totally different kettle of fish.
