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

Ratings in depth It's become a bit of a cliche, but a year really is a long time in technology. Less than 12 months ago, Sony launched the ridiculously slim, light, and powerful Sony Xperia Tablet Z, and it seemed like a tablet ahead of its time.

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

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...

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

 

The Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet is out now, with a starting price of £399 for the 16GB WiFi-only model. This scales up to £449 for the 32GB WiFi only model, and £499 for the 16GB LTE model. There's no 32GB tablet with cellular connectivity.

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...
