Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet

 

Sony hasn't done enough to improve its 10-inch tablet

Very slim and light, Good rear camera, Water and dust resistant

Over-saturated display, Lower resolution screen than its peers, Weak and tinny speakers

Expert review by : What Hi-Fi? (whathifi.com)

Sony Xperia Z2

 

Superb picture, Incredible sound, Waterproofing, Brilliant camera

Reflective front, Unwieldy design, Some bloatware on top of Android

Bringing as much style as it does substance, the Z2 will not disappoint

Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet review

 

Thinner, lighter and more powerful, can the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet beat the iPad Air?

Slim ; waterproof chassis ; Fantastic screen ; Great battery life

Large bezel ; Lots of bloatware

Expert review by (whathifi.com)

Sony Xperia Tablet Z2

 

Another solid tablet from Sony, but it just doesn't do quite enough against the mighty iPad

Fine screen – if not the best ; Clean and detailed sound ; Clutter-free interface ; Waterproofing

More detail on rival tabs ; Still a lack of optimised Android tab apps ; Reflective front ; Chassis flex

Overall, the Sony Xperia Tablet Z2 is an impressive piece of kit – with its superb screen and sound, battery capacity and user-friendly interface, it ticks all the right boxes to deserve a place on your shortlist.

Tablet season 2014 is upon us and vying for your attention is the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet. It's slimmer, lighter and more powerful than its Tablet Z predecessor and offers some standout features such as waterproofing. From a features perspective the Sony...

Waterproof, slim and light, microSD slot, plenty of power, quality construction, software improvements

Bezel size to excess, display resolution behind the competition, display colour is warm, reflective glass

From a features perspective the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet has a long list of positives: waterproofing, that new slimmer and lighter design, a quality construction and all the power of the Snapdragon 801 processor. It's premium, priced as such, and waves a...

Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet review

 

Sony's 2014 tablet arrives before its flagship smartphone - if you liked the Tablet Z, you'll love this [updated with video]

Waterproof ; Perfect screen for movies ; Light ; All day battery life

Expensive ; No killer first/third party tablet apps ; Big bezels = a very wide tablet

A solid Sony with a brilliant screen, this waterproof tab just doesn’t have the edge over rival Androids

Hands-on: Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet review - Pocket-lint

 

The Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet replaces the Xperia Tablet Z, running with the tagline that it's the world's slimmest and lightest waterproof tablet. Regardless

Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet review

 

An evolutionary change doesn't stop this being a remarkable tablet

High-power ; Live Color screen ; Great design

Screen too low-res ; Sharper edges

The Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet is a powerful, well-balanced slate that needed a slight bump in screen quality to truly compete with the best.

Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet vs Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet comparison

 

Sony may not have announced its Xperia Z4 flagship smartphone yet, but it did unveil a brand-new Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet during MWC 2015 in Barcelona at the beginning of March, the successor to the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet and Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact....

Sony's year-old Xperia Z2 Tablet really impressed us when it launched, and still impresses us now. If you already own the Z2 Tablet and are thinking about upgrading, we'd recommend holding on to it – it remains a great tablet that can still compete...

Xperia Z2 Tablet is the first Android tablet that rivals or beats the iPad Air: Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet video review

 

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...
