Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet Review

 

Facelift with small flaws. The successor of the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet, the thinnest and lightest 10-inch tablet, has the designation...Z4 Tablet - logical. Just as logical are the updated internals, the slightly reworked chassis and the improved...

Very light and very thin, Rubberized back, Waterproof and dust-resistant, Very fast components, Bright and high-contrast display, High resolution, Usable cameras, Decent speakers, Fast Wi-Fi and LTE, Telephone function

Insufficient stability, Thermal issues with throttling, Power adaptor insufficient, Extremely long charging time, Mediocre GPS performance

Thin, light, waterproof, powerful and top features – this is familiar for Sony tablets nowadays. All these characteristics also apply for the Xperia Z4 Tablet. This could already be the end of the verdict, if there weren’t some issues. But let’s start...

Sony Xperia Z4 tablet review

 

Sony might not be the first to come to mind when you think about tablets, but if you're in the market for a stellar Android model, you should pay attention to its latest release. The Xperia Z4 tablet, not to be confused with the Xperia Z4 smartphone ,...

The Sony Xperia Z4's slim, waterproof design is simultaneously sleek and solid. Running the latest version of Android, it features a colorful user-friendly overlay. It has a sharp HD screen, and its performance is fast and smooth.

The optional Bluetooth keyboard is cramped to type on and has a frail plastic build.

For novice Android users with a desire to greatly personalize their experience, the Sony Xperia Z4 is a beautifully constructed tablet with high-end specs that won't disappoint.

Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet review: the new netbook?

 

Netbooks didn't have a lot going for them, but they had a clear purpose. Their cramped keyboards, dull displays, and feeble processors couldn't detract from their eminent usefulness as fast note...

Thinner, faster, lighter, yet still waterproof ; The USB port is open, but the tablet's still waterproof ; You can use it in the shower, because it's waterproof

Keyboard dock could have been a differentiator, instead it's a disaster ; Upgrades from last year's model aren't significant ; Cheaper alternatives like the Nexus 9 do almost everything just as well

Sony Xperia Z4 tablet review: a great device saddled with a terrible dock

 

Sony's Xperia Z4 Tablet is a fantastic Android device lumbered with a pointless keyboard dock. If you can pick one up alone, it might be the perfect tablet for you, but it's too expensive to recommend with the dock included.

Incredibly thin and light ; Near-flawless performance ; Water- and dust-resistant ; PS4 Remote Play

Very reflective display ; Poor main camera ; Keyboard dock is a useless addition

If Sony sells the Z4 without a bundled keyboard dock in the US -- the company has not responded to my request for comment on the matter-- then it'd be easy to recommend this to anyone looking for an Android tablet. Yes, it has shortcomings -- namely...

Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet - Sony's answer to the Surface 3?

 

We loved Sony's waterproof Z2 Tablet and Z3 Tablet Compact, and now Sony has launched the new Z4 tablet. With an upgraded QHD display and octa-core processor, as well as a new Bluetooth keyboard dock that turns it into a 10-inch laptop, the Z4 looks...

Powerful Snapdragon 810 octa-core processor ; Ultra-thin and lightweight design; IP68 certified ; QHD 2,560 x 1,600-pixel display ; Stereo speakers

Poor battery life ; Expensive ; Not much different from last year's model

The Xperia Z4 Tablet has a new display and a new processor, but it doesn't really feel like a new product. The Z4 delivers exactly what the Z2 Tablet did last year: great build, waterproof durability, minimalist design, and a top notch display and...

Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet review: the almost-perfect tablet

 

At MWC 2015 in Barcelona, Sony unveiled the Xperia Z4 Tablet, the successor to the Xperia Z2 Tablet (yes, we know Sony doesn't seem to know how to count). It is currently the world's thinnest and lightest tablet. The ultra-thin 10.1-inch tablet is now...

Very lightweight for its size ; Brilliant display ; Very good performance ; No crashes despite Snapdragon 810 ; Great build quality

Average battery life ; No LED flash on camera

Not many manufacturers manage to bring a thin and light tablet with high-end hardware and stellar performance on the market, let alone one that is waterproof. Sony has, once again, succeeded with flying colors. It's pretty rare that we see a device...

Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet review: Sony has won us over

 

Sony's tablet heritage is well-known in the Android community. The Japanese company knocked it out of the park with the Xperia Z2 Tablet, and has made some enormous strides since then. And although the company's lineup hasn't achieved anywhere near the...

Beyond that, we don’t have too many complaints about the Z4 Tablet. If you’re looking for something a little more advanced than the Nexus 9, it’s worth your time. To hear many more thoughts about the Z4 Tablet, check out Jon’s video review above.

Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet review

 

Lighter, faster… a real iPad Air 2 rival

Gorgeous display ; New improved design ; Strong battery life

Problematic UI ; Only 32GB option ; Expensive price tag

Sony's Xperia Z4 Tablet is one of the best Android tablets available on the market right now, and is one of the only slates capable of putting up a fight against the iPad Pro 9.7.
