Here's my experience with the tablet after 1 month of use.I have the WiFi version, and so far everything works perfectly.
I haven't had any touch screen issues so I guess that was fixed with the latest firmware. Screen brightness, color etc. is really great, except the screen can get a bit reflective when viewing outside on a sunny day, but since I use it mostly inside its not a problem for me.
The design is sleek, and its very light for its size so holding it for a longer period of time with one hand is not a problem. Also the back of the tablet is some kind of non slippery rubber/plastic so the grip on it is really good.
It's also very fast with no lag.(with that hardware under the hood that's what you'd expect).
Battery life is Ok i guess.I get around 8-10 hrs of on screen time, and I do mostly web surfing, some gaming and some videos/youtube.
The camera is kinda bad but I guess it's like that on most tablets, and i really don't intend to take photos with it anyway.
All in all Sony did a really good job and I'd recommend it to anyone.
updates screw up my tab, loss bluetooth and wifi send back to sony have to wait 3 week- month repair :(
does it support multi tasking like opening multiple pages without closing the other pages
I am about to buy one but have to choose between this 1 and the Z3 compact tablet.
What do you think ?
it seems that when making call using loudspeaker people on the other end are hearing a lot of disturbance,noise...but when using earphone it's OK..anyone got the same problem?

Hi everyone, i want to get a new highend android device and i'm confused between this tablet and the xperia z2 phone, help out.
After my previous tablet spoilt, I researched around and got this. Let me share my experience with it.
I've had this tablet for a month and it's really all I ever need. It runs fast enough for anything and I haven't had any hardware related problems as of yet. I bought the cover and have dumped it in my bag (with a makeshift cushion bottom), travelled halfway around the globe with it, edited my code-heavy website and more.
If you are looking for a boombox, a drawing tablet or a battery hunk, this is not for you. The sensitivity is rarely annoying and I've gotten used to it. The display is decent enough to watch anime. WiFi and LTE is fast enough, sometimes faster than my computer (maybe the OS). The design is sleek (woots!). When I listen to my headphones, I need to remove the cover as it gets in the way. When putting this upright (which is most of the time during work), I have to choose 1 of 2 positions to use due to the positioning of the audio jack. The battery lasts for about a half day when surfing the net and streaming music. I tried running stockfish chess engine with 2GB RAM and ponder on and it worked fine, almost beating Houdini on my computer (almost). The camera is bad as is on all tablets. The audio recording is choppy, even after clearing it.
I picked this tablet because it had the fastest processor, which is rarely found on a tablet. I must say I'm quite satisfied with it.
