Sony Xperia Tablet Z2 LTE Review

The Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet comes as a direct successor to the Xperia Tablet Z device. As befits a Sony, the new generation brings significant improvements. This primarily refers to the new quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor and the latest KitKat Android. So, the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet brings the latest and greatest from the world of hardware and software, so there is no reason not to declare it one really great device in advance.

The new generation of Sony tablets is very thin. The device has only 6.4mm at the waist. Even if you did not know this information, it would become clear to you the moment you took it in your hands. The device weighs 426g, which is considered a good result. This is, in essence, the main reason why this device costs so much. It is clear that perfection has a price, which is everything but low. Still, the build quality could be a bit better, as the tablet doesn’t instill too much confidence in the stamina, but nothing that would put you in serious doubt that it will be damaged by some awkward movement.

The Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet looks pretty much the same as its predecessor, with no front buttons, with a pronounced glass effect. And the background is not too loaded with details. There are only the Sony logo. What this tablet had to avoid were the wide edges of the screen. As a result, the tablet loses little of its activity, and a large area is wasted. However, this situation also has a positive side, because you can put your fingers on that plastic surface when you hold the tablet.

Like all Sony devices, the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet is waterproof. All ports on the outside are covered. There is also an infrared port on the surface with which you can control the TV.

This 10.1-inch screen comes in full HD resolution. At 224 pixels per inch, it is not a champion, but it is excellent in displaying multimedia content. The picture is extremely clear. The display of the text is outstanding and it is impossible to notice the pronounced pixels. The photos (and the colors on them) are great. The reason for this is that Sony has applied Triluminous technology, which it uses in the production of TV. The colors are strong and deep, and if that doesn’t suit you, go to the settings and choose the combination that suits you.

Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet specification and performance
In this rather skinny “package” Sony has managed to put a very powerful processor with the latest technology. It runs at an impressive 2.3GHz with support for as much as 3GB of RAM. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that the tablet has absolutely no problems working. Without stopping, everything flows smoothly and it is really a real pleasure to use this tablet. Even those pretty demanding video games work very well. That’s why the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet doesn’t have a target audience. It is simply good for all categories of users. Of course, if you can afford it.

The 6,000mAh battery has pretty good results. For mixed use (of just a little bit), the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet can provide just over 13 hours of operation. However, the situation is somewhat different when you play games, because then the battery simply melts. A minor complaint is the time it takes to charge the battery and it usually lasts longer than usual. If you use the tablet for less demanding applications, then the battery may last, but if you plan to travel somewhere for a couple of days, be sure to bring a charger with you.

The 8MP main camera is reasonably good. It is clear that you will not be able to replace the camera from a smartphone with a 10-inch tablet, but it is practical for taking photos at home. The photo quality is good. The colors and brightness are at a good level. Of course, when the lighting is dimmer, the photos get noisy, especially because there is no flash, which is definitely a mistake.

Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet Conclusion
The Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet is a step up from its predecessor. The difference between them is not huge, but it still exists (see a comparative overview of the two tablets HERE). One of the biggest arguments of this tablet is the shiny and thin design, as well as the water resistance that will save it from sudden contact with water. The quad-core processor is ideal for every task you have for this great tablet. The last but inevitable question is is the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet worth that much? Try to give the answer yourself after looking at similar competing devices.
