Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet is good indeed. It's waterproof and it's lighter than Samsung Galaxy Tab A 10.1". That's why I love it. What I don't like is the trouble that comes with the waterproof feature. When the battery gets old and you want to change it, here comes the trouble. Because it's waterproof, so, when you remove the battery, you'll have to remove the display. As time passed, the glue around the display becomes difficult to remove. In order to get the battery out of tablet, the only way is to take out the display. If you do that, the chances of damaging the display is 80%. So, you'll have to change the display too. That costs you nearly half the price of tablet. It's really annoying. So, I wouldn't it recommend it because it's so troublesome.
Does someone have done a battery change in Sweden ?
Very good tablet - But impossible to get repaired. Need to change battery, lasts only one hour.
Sony service center has no exchange batteries available.
Can buy a non original replacement - but no shop which can do the replacement.
When I google there is only help for the tablet Z - not for the Z2 which is much more complicated, since you have to remove the display in order to replace the battery.
Car6on, 22 Jun 2018This tab is slim but many suffer from a deep sleep turn on problem where it will not turn on u... moreI have had it since 2015, it worked well without any issues. suddenly it went to deep sleep and is not turning on, I only get a red LED for few min 10-15min. Then Dead again nothing. Its been like this for more than a year. I dont know what to do with this Tablet. I bought it for a for a higher price and its simply not turning on at all.
This tab is slim but many suffer from a deep sleep turn on problem where it will not turn on unless battery is removed... google it. The screen is great but the headphone jack is on the bottom which does not let it sit flat when watching a movie. The usb charge port is covered which is annoy to remove for charging. I was able to upgrade it to android 6 with sonys rom but half the time I need it I cant use it due to the deep sleep problem...

Anonymous, 16 Oct 2017I'm interested buying this tablet, so is it worth in 2017?Absolutely. Z2 remains fast either on browsing the web or most 2017 apps from Play Store. I just dropped and broke my Z2 screen last week and is actively shopping on Amazon and Ebay for a second z2 tab. You could find a good one around USD$170-200. Just make sure you don't buy a "Verizon Demo" version. I won't pay more than $200. Good luck.
S, 08 Jun 2017Thinking to buy now new for 200 bucks. Is it still enough for reading, serfing the net, videos... moreI have one, and it is great! Got it for $175 refurbished. Just as good as my wife's Samsung Galaxy S 8.4, but with less screen quality. Lightweight and fast. I have searched a lot, and can't find anything better for the price.
Thinking to buy now new for 200 bucks. Is it still enough for reading, serfing the net, videos? using stylus? Or it is better for me to buy a more uptodate device like Samsung A Tab 10/1. thanx!
I want to use may z2 tablet in my projector what should I do my projector has no built in wifi please help me
Let model users, did you need to use Xperia companion for Android updates?
Anonymous, 22 Oct 2015Is this tablet worth buying? I would say no, some of you might differ with my opinion. Let me explain.
I bought this tab an year back, it hardly work fine for few months, i constantly had issues and it got back to normal by itself. one of the common problem is , it is not charging , all of a sudden it fixes by itself , i was still under warranty when i took it to Service center. Its a shock of my life what Service center had to say. There is a scratch on my Tab screen and this becomes the reason for service center to declare as damaged piece. And then started negotiating, Refurbished piece will be provided but i have to bare 60% of the cost of the piece. What an idea sir ji.
Absolute non sense , i bought this for 45K and a scratch on the screen disqualifies it a warranty piece. i would not go with Sony any more
