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.
I want to upgrade my Xperia Tab Z from JB 4.3 to KitKat, I have the notification to upgrade it to kitkat Version 10.5.A.0.230, BUT I remember it was said here that there was another version coming soon (.233)and we shouldn't install the 10.5.A.0.230 because it has many problems. Now I'm just wondering till now no notification for version .233, and if I will be able to get the notification for version .233 if I don't install the version .230 first.
Can anyone help me with this?
thank you guys

AnonD-271557, 10 Jun 2014Should I buy Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet Wifi or Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition or Apple Air ... moreHi there. Sorry im not going to answer your question but i just wanna let you know that i have the same dillema too! Im undecided with all the tablets that you mentioned except for nexus 10 bcos that is kinda too old IMO. I want the stylus of the note, but i want the premium quality of the sony. And te ipad air is hard to resist bcos it is cheaper than the sony. So hard to make a decision right?!
I had this tablet for a week now and no issues at all its alright running 4G and I used wifi not not dropped once really good piece of tech
the heck? why did the screen cracked? what happened to the wifi? maybe it's you're fault and then ur calling sony to replace it and they refused.. go home
I have had it 3 days and the screen cracked the wifi kept turning off. Would never buy another
After some time of usage my z2 tab got creaking sound when holding or pressing the body at righthand landscape, really annoys me feels like the built or plastic not good..is it the some with other?
I put my Sony Vaio Tap 11 and Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet Side By Side and I found My Vaio Tap 11 is brighter than Xperia Z2 Tablet, but overall It's a good tablet. I don't think about camera since I don't take selfie with tablet.
ser, 16 Jun 2014the build is good thin solid light and nice to hold, battery is great, display excellent, but ... moreI just brought this and all I can say that this is perfect!.. sony did a very good job at choosing a next gen tab to beat the sony tablet z.. it has everything I need and even has an IR blaster.. not to mention that it is water proof.. to those complaining about the camera you should manually set the picture quality to 8 MP.. its default setting is at 5 MP thats why picture looks shitty.. very happy with the device
the build is good thin solid light and nice to hold, battery is great, display excellent, but camera is bad...even though we don`t usually take picture with 10 inch tablet but with its price and superior processor, sony should at least put a better camera maybe as same samsung note 10.1 2014..
