The "1-Minute" Review
- Poor battery performance
- Performance stuttering
- Pre-installed software bloat
The Xperia Tablet Z features a more durable build than others with certifications for waterproofing as well as dust proofing while managing to keep a slim and sleek design similar to other Xperia’s. At 10.1 inches, this tablet has great entertainment value because of Sony’s exemplary Bravia Display technology and sound technology expertise.
Thanks to a quad core processor, it should be no slouch when it comes to performance, but all that power and Sony’s lack of software efficiency leaves it marred by hiccups and battery drain. According to GSM Arena’s tests, “the Tablet Z lasted a little over 7 hours, which is nearly two hours less than the Apple iPad mini.”
“The tablet's IP57 certification, lightweight and ultra-slim design, coupled with its entertainment and productivity services make it a compelling choice” says Alastair Stevenson of V3 UK. If you can deal with Sony’s un-optimized software and bloat, this tablet is worthy of your consideration.
