Last month, Sony released probably one of the most impressive tablets of this year, a skilled performer that means serious business and makes its competitors tremble when hearing about just a few of its specs. I’m talking about the Xperia Z2 Tablet, the new Sony flagship from the world of tablets. Being a successor of the Tablet Z, the new version inherits its beautiful appearance and even brings more improvements that enhance both its interior and exterior. If you’re currently using a tablet or just thinking about getting one, read the following review and find out if this slim & smart fellow would match your demandings.
The Xperia Tablet Z2 comes in a box that holds a charger head, a microUSB cable for charging and making data transfers and the user manuals.
Let’s see what the flagship brings regarding design and appearance. The Tablet Z2 stands at 266 x 172 x 6.4 mm and has a reasonable weight of 439 grams. With these “measurements”, the device is one of the slimmest and good looking tablets you can find, being extremely elegant due to its aluminum framing and thin profile. The OmniBalance design is here, yet the Z2 Tablet features soft, matte plastic on its back instead of glass, this way being lighter and more durable.
If you’re used to managing tablets, handling the Xperia Tablet Z2 is a piece of cake, as it’s very light and will feel comfortable in your hands. This slim and charming fellow is also a tough guy, having an IP58 certification for being dust proof and water resistant for up to 30 minutes under up to 1 meter.
The tablet comes with a 10.1 inches capacitive touchscreen that has a resolution of 1920 x 1200 pixels, a pixel density of 224 ppi and is powered by the Sony Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2. The colors offered by this screen are very vibrant and pleasing, the viewing angles are very wide, yet this combination has a little to suffer because of the screen’s reflectivity. You’ll see what I’m talking about when using the tablet under direct sunlight.

In terms of software, the Xperia Tablet Z2 comes loaded with Android 4.4.2 KitKat and also offers some enhancements brought by Sony to the interface. Browsing through goes smooth and without any issues, lag is out of the question here and so are freezes. And that doesn’t surprise me, given the tablet’s impressive list of specs. On that list, we’ll find a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset, having a quad-core 2.3 GHz Krait 400 processor, Adreno 330 GPU, 3 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage which can be expanded with a microSD card of up to 64 GB.
For watching movies, the tablet comes with a capable player that is connected to Gracenote and supports MP4, AVI and MKV files without any hiccups. You also have subtitle support and the possibility of customizing them, TrackID TV for recognizing what show’s currently playing.
The audio player is, of course, the Walkman player, which does a great job and offers a lot of features for you to enjoy. Such as the Infinite button for looking up your song on YouTube, artist information on Wikipedia and also finds the lyrics. The ClearAudio+ functionality is also present for determining the best settings (according to what you’re listening to). An FM Radio with RDS support is also on board.
The Tablet Z2 comes with an 8.1 megapixels snapper with autofocus that features an Exmor backside illuminated sensor and offers photos with a maximum resolution of 3264 x 2448 pixels. The camera application offers a lot of settings and features, such as face and smile detection, geo tagging, panorama, touch focus, HDR, Social streaming (it can upload your video to your Facebook profile) and more. The image quality is pleasing overall, but not anything unseen before from an 8MP snapper.
The tablet Z2 shoots some fine 1080p videos at 30 fps. There’s also a secondary 2.2 MP camera on board and can also shoot 1080p@30fps.
In terms of connectivity, the Tablet Z2 comes in two versions: a Wi-Fi only one and a Wi-Fi + LTE, which has quad-band 2G and penta-band 3G. Also in the package is support for dual-band Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, Wi-Fi Direct, Hotspot, DLNA, Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP, NFC and microUSB 2.0. There’s also an Infra red port that allows you to control a wide range of devices.
Surfing the web on the Xperia Tablet Z2 is a great experience due to its powerful hardware. Google Chrome also does a wonderful job, the pages are loaded fast and look nice on the tablet’s display and you have an army of features for improving your browsing experience.
Some other useful features offered by the Xperia Tablet Z2 are the Office Suite 7 for viewing and editing document files, a GPS receiver with support for GLONASS and Google Maps for navigation.
With these being said, it figures that Sony’s Xperia Tablet Z2 is one of the best tablets out there and can hardly be defeated when it comes to performance and looks. Especially looks. If you want something smart, but extremely good looking and thin, this is the tablet for you. And don’t forget about its IP58 certification, which turns this baby into a real soldier that’s ready to join you wherever you go.
