anahi, 24 Mar 2016Xperia z4 tablet or galaxy tab s2 9.7 ,which screen is better and less reflective ?Of course Samsung S2 because screen is super Amoled.
Best tablet!! I have using this for 6 months now and enjoying the unit very much. I think I only utilize 50% of its function, and Im still exploring other surprises it can give.. SONY rocks!!
bestdesigns, 17 May 2016SONY Z4 are an Excellent designs, IP68 certified - dust and water proof up to 1.5 meter and 30... moreDon't try to submerse into water even for 5 minutes. It is not water proof or even resistance. if you look at the warranty card. There is a disclaimer. The water proof is not even better than Z3 tablet. I tried it.
Rijalbabu, 25 Apr 2016I am confused... Which to buy ??? Xperia Z4 tab or Galaxy Tab S29 !!!! Which one would be best ?SONY Z4 no question !!!
SONY Z4 are an Excellent designs, IP68 certified - dust and water proof up to 1.5 meter and 30 minutes. Qualcomm MSM8994 Snapdragon 810
Can support SMS and Phone Calls Sony staff told me. I going to buy this tablets because ALL in 3 - 1. Office software can support this for android available.
Because bigger screen size as 10.1" No other tablets can support SMS or Phone calls except Smart Phone up to the MAX size 6" screen.

Which one would be best ?I would go with this one!!
Samsung has always problem with overheating, this tab has cooling solution, if I'm not wrong. Best to google about this.
Also this one has bigger resolution and better battery.
Xperia is dust and water resistant, which is very important!
The price is same.
So for me, the winner would be Xperia Z4 LTD!

Z4 user, 09 Jan 2016I have a Z4 + keyboard for one month and after reading a lot of reviews before and used the ta... moreNice sharing of unbiased review. In my country this tablet cost a lot more than a thousand dollar with keyboard and only sold for pre order only.you have to pay down-payment or full payments then wait for the unit to arrive in a couple of days or so. That's why I bought z5 premium instead of this tablet. I'll buy this tablet if the price goes down.
I have a Z4 + keyboard for one month and after reading a lot of reviews before and used the tablet I felt I might help others in making an informed decision.
If you notice the difference in pixel density displays then this is the tablet for you. Display is amazing compared to other screens. I now have a problem using my laptops. Blacks are amazing (I read some say is greyish... is not).
If you are audiophile then this is the tablet for you. HD sound quality (flac) is an big improvement. The new lines of Sony devices will be HD sound enabled. I will get some speakers with this because bluetooth and HD does not work. You need the new format so you can transfer large data of HD. Better to use a cable :)
Is even better then Z3 phone I have and that was already at Apple level. I did not compared directly with Apple, only the phone. To be fair I do not know exactly but this is not a killer feature for me is just a bonus that sound is much better.
Speakers are good and very clear for movie watching or even music but is only for acoustic type. I did not try boom boom as most probably it will be distorted. Does the job wonderful.
If you use big files (videos ...) then again this is for you because you can stick a 128 GB microSD inside and you almost have a laptop. This was the feature I need and killed the Ipad Air 2 alternative for me.
If you need to write a lot (emails documents ...) then having original keyboard is a big bonus. The keyboard reviews are all done by not users (to be polite) or ppl wanting to find faults in Sony.
Is very responsive and usable, you just need to touch any key one to wake up if you don;t use it for some time. Touch pad is responsive and you can control almost anything from special keys.
I do not understand complaints of being flimsy. You want a thin keyboard or else I buy a laptop.... Complaints of being heavy: show me a laptop under 400 g in total with android (i have a laptop with windows ...), Complaints of being small and difficult to type: do you want a small and thin device, almost the size of the screen? Then the keyboard is small too. If you dont like get a bigger keyboard ... I want to travel with it and type better then on the screen. This is much better.
It is still not a main stream feature (android physical keyboard) so some features in some apps are not behaving the same but mixed with swiftkey I type only first letter and then space bar for auto-suggestion to kick in. A feature that is not working is that you suppose to not need to type first letter and just hit space bar to post the auto-suggested word is not working.
Battery last amazingly long, I left it on for 2 days with mixed use and it dropped 3%. Probably is working weeks without a charge. I will not close it.
Another big plus (mentioned in only one review) is that you can stick the tablet vertically in the keyboard and use it in portrait mode (much more useful in working with documents). You can even stick your Sony phone too and work on him too (not necessary useful). This is a major plus!
The biggest negative is that there is no case for the combo (tablet + keyboard). You can only use a pouch type. However the keyboard is protecting the screen and the articulation is a great handle to keep the tablet (very practical to grip it from there, I guess it was intentional made like a protruding ridge).
In rest is a beast machine. I torrented 3 files in the same time (over 3 gb each) and it just mildly got warm in the back (just in one place). I got the fastest speed ever of download on a machine I own on my wifi: 3,3 Mb/s Impressive wifi.
I put a video (+ 3gb) to edit (crop, add a layer .,...) and it the only time processor got hot (only in one place and it did not start to cook, just hot) I got it done in 40 min where my laptop needed hours (didnt count but it was sensible more). Some problems appear (software related) because processing does not work in the background only in some apps. Even then is limited.
Only one game had manage to get the processor hot again, and it drain the battery faster then the charger could charge. I manage to drain the battery almost to 0 because I did not check.
I have experienced lags once but after uninstalling the last app i have installed it come back to normal.
So if you need large files, like android, need a great screen, great sound and full processor power then this is for you.
Did I mention you can wash it or drop it in water and you will not lose your investment!
I had also checked Samsung S2 (10 inch) as an alternative (it was very close to sony) but wateproof + 2k screen won. Also LTE version can be used as a phone (great for business phone, office like but you need hands free device).
Again, if you notice the screen differences in density then 2k is for you. Not sure if 4k can make a difference but depends on price.
Just get a screen protector (also a lens protector for the back camera) so you protect it.
Hope is useful for choosing what is best for you.
Dare I say it? Yes... Yes I think I shall. This tab, when coupled with its corrosponding keyboard, I would consider to be a Surface Pro killer. The keyboard launcher, the streamlined software, the ability to touch-type (which I am doing on it now), the barely-there profile, this thing is the most beautiful and functional piece of tech I own. 10/10

OMG ITS SO PRETTY!!!!!
This 'edge' nonsense is yet another example of planned obsolescence / defective by design / form over function. It is a *technical* flaw in the design to have the glass screen protruding out beyond the bezel, since that puts the screen into a much more sensitive position where it is exposed to impacts that it would otherwise be protected from.
Example; with a conventional flat display, impacting it against the edge of something, for example, a table edge (I'm not talking about a corner, which nothing can protect against, but an EDGE), with a protruding/bubble/round screen edge, it is possible for the glass to come directly in contact with the table. With a flat screen with plastic or metal bezel, it is *NOT* possible for the glass to come in contact with the screen.
