Sony Xperia Tablet Z: the best Android tablet on the market?

Android tablets, which really iPad can keep up with the Apple, unfortunately so far are in short supply. Samsung has some tablets on sale, really convincing just with regard to the processing and they weren’t display quality so far. Who would like to spend a few more euros for a Tablet and it want uncompromising quality, was happy to make little with Android.

The Sony Xperia Tablet Z might be the big exception, making it a contender for the best Android tablet on the market. The Sony Xperia Tablet Z is clearly visually oriented to the Smartphone Sony Xperia Z with the Sony has created the first revamp really standalone Smartphone with high recognition value in my opinion. This monolithic design with the striking angular shapes is also in big at the Tablet much here. Also it is very flat, light with 6, 9 mm (495 g) and waterproof – what you want?


Design and processing

the design notes for the Sony Xperia Z are evident when the Xperia tablet. The front of the 10.1 ″ tablet is made of Gorilla glass, the back is rubberized, which the Sony Xperia Tablet offers a really good hold Z. It is also very shallow (6. 9mm) and around 150 g lighter than the Apple iPad from Apple. For long reading session or Interneturfen so it’s somewhat more relaxed with the Android cars anyway.

Very nice feature, especially for the beach stay with the Tablet: the Sony Xperia Tablet Z is waterproof and dustproof (IP55 and IP57). It survived at least half an hour in one meter of water. The tablet to take is so safe in the bathtub.

Highlight of the Sony Xperia Tablet Z: the display

The Android Tablet comes in spite of the extremely flat casing stands out: this undoubtedly with the angle-stable IPS display begins, which is already one of the major highlights of the Sony Xperia Tablet Z. Apparently Sony has taken seriously the criticism at the Sony Xperia Z, which was criticized for its pale colours and somewhat poor viewing angle stability.

The display no longer has this problem: the 10.1 ″ resolves the large screen with 1920 × 1200 resolution. The pixel density is 224 DPI just below the Apple iPad, the 16:10 format is beneficial. Videos can be ideal look with the Sony Xperia Tablet Z, but some sites benefit from the 16:10 format (instead of 16:9). Thanks to the BRAVIA 2 engine colors and contrasts beautiful look.

Hardware and equipment

Quad core is 4 x 1.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor clocked (chipset Qualcomm chipset APQ8064), large 2 gb memory available. Internally different sizes to choose from: for the LTE tablet, there’s 16 gb internal storage, 16 gb or 32 gb Wi-Fi version. In all versions, the memory can be expanded map anyway via micro SD.

As extra there is an infrared interface at the top of the device, with which you can control his TV or his hi-fi system. The Sony Xperia Tablet Z is so good with the corresponding apps as a high-end remote control – Sony has pre-installed already a fairly comfortable solution. Also convinced the camera equipment of the Sony tablet, which is generally not exactly standard for tablets. I could but thanks to the really light weight quite imagine that the Sony Xperia Tablet Z a “ always ” device for many might be. The 8 mega pixel camera with Sony Exmor R sensor is likely high on the Sony Xperia Z come close. An LED light there is no Z at the Sony Xperia Tablet but. The front camera with 2 mega pixels is average and can be used perfectly for video telephony.

Software and battery life

With Android 4.1.2 Google has significantly improved the scrolling behavior of Android. The update with the descriptive name “ project butter ” is already recorded at the Sony Xperia Tablet Z and ensures smooth scrolling through menus. About Android Sony’s user interface, which I but here not want to dwell on (at the end of the article you can find here another video with more impressions of the software) is of course again.


Unfortunately, the strong hardware Sony Xperia Tablet Z has a price: is mAh battery already (depending on the intensity of use) after approximately 4 hours actually huge dimensioned 6000 use empty. This is for a Tablet but unfortunately very little, in particular because the loading of the Sony Xperia Tablet felt double Z takes so long. This is probably the tribute for a large display, processor and the flat a strong quad-core design of the tablets.
