Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet
Sony is no stranger to the tablet game and last year’s Xperia Tablet Z was an impressive device, but the company has gone one better this year with the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet.
At just 6.4mm thick and 439g it’s the thinnest, lightest 10 inch slate in the world and it looks good too, thanks to a metal frame. Sony has also ensured that it’s both water and dust resistant, so you need never fear spills again.
Its 2.3 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor and 3GB of RAM ensure it’s plenty powerful, easily keeping pace with any other tablet out there and it comes with Android 4.4.2 KitKat, so it’s fully up to date.
It’s also one of a growing number of slates that has 4G support, so you can take advantage of its big screen and enjoy streaming video on the move.
Speaking of its screen, the Xperia Z2 Tablet’s 10.1 inch 1200 x 1920 LCD display is pretty impressive. It only has a pixel density of 224 pixels per inch but it uses Sony’s Live Colour system, which ensures colours are bright and vivid while remaining natural.
It’s also one of the few tablets that recognises sound is important, and with that in mind it’s packed in Front Surround speakers, for an enveloping audio experience, or if you’d rather use headphones it also has digital noise cancelling smarts which allows it to block out up to 98 percent of ambient sound when paired with a noise cancelling headset.
The Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet also has a surprisingly good 8 megapixel camera, so it can take decent photos in a pinch or record video in 1080p at 30fps.
It has 16GB of storage which can be built upon with a microSD card of up to 64GB, so you can comfortably store all you music and videos on it. The slate also supports NFC and Bluetooth 4.0, for an impressive suite of connectivity options.
The Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet is out now in black or white and the 4G version will set you back around £500.
