Sony Xperia Tablet Z: A Strong Contender for Best Tablet
I HAD to have one of these as I’ve been looking for my ideal Android tablet for some time, and so far, the majority of the pro websites have given the Sony Xperia Tablet Z very positive reviews. Not wanting to wait several weeks, as Amazon states for their shipping times, I bought one straight from Sony…and I couldn’t be much happier! Just about every tablet I’ve tried has had defect issues, build issues, too low screen resolution (or underpowered when it was hi rez), etc., etc. Although it’s not perfect, with everything I’d LIKE to see in a tablet, I think it’s overall the best tablet currently available.
I know it’s been said in many reviews, but seriously, this thing is amazingly light and well balanced. At roughly the equivalent in weight to an iPad Mini, it’s a remarkable feat of engineering. Yet it’s also quite solid and exceptionally well made. There is no tablet lighter and thinner than the Z…period.

You can use this tablet in ways that would be impractical with a full-size iPad or Nexus 10. Things like holding it in one hand or reading an ebook for a couple hours. It also looks great.
1920×1080 at 10.1 inches isn’t anywhere near the pixel density of the Nexus 10, but it’s within striking distance of the retina iPad. You probably won’t notice the difference unless you’re actively looking for it. Text is sharp. Viewing angles are great. Colors look good. It gets very bright.
-The IR blaster
It’s actually pretty cool. Grab Sony’s TV SideView app and you get an attractive TV guide. Selecting a show and letting the tablet change the channel without touching the remote is a neat trick.
-Port covers are a pain to open up. This seems to be a side-effect of…
Sony hits a home run….possibly a grand slam
Years ago, the word Sony was the name for the latest in cool products like the walkman. In the last decade, the name Sony has become an afterthought..tv’s taken over by Samsung, cell phones and tablets dominated by Apple. However, the sleeping giant has awakened..xperia phones selling very well and well reviewed, the first 4k tv and the playstation 4 around the corner.
