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 S review

 

Goodbye Ericsson. Can the Japanese powerhouse go it alone?

Fantastic screen ; NFC capability ; High quality camera ; Premium build ; Large internal storage

Easy to drop ; No microSD slot ; Slightly poor battery life ; Fat chassis ; Only Android 2.3

Update: We've taken a better look at the NFC capabilities of the Xperia S and played with the SmartWatch in a bit more depth - check out our findings.

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.
