Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet hands-on

0. phoneArena posted on 24 Feb 2014, 07:53

First and foremost, the thing is amazingly thin and lightweight – with no compromise to the integrity of its construction. Much like all the other products we’ve been seeing from Sony, the Xperia Z2 Tablet employs the same OmniBalance design language of its brethren, which means it’s distinctively an Xperia device of some kind. Holding it in our hand, it’s pretty comfortable to hold, as it bears a soft touch matte finish – allowing it to repel smudges and fingerprints...

Best tablet this year! But even then, I'm not interested in tablets. Just stretched out smartphones to me.

Best superscreen phone maybe. Best tablet is TabPro 8.4 & it's bros, cause they properly act like tablet computers with multitasking, fullscreen UI and more productivity.

Don't hate the messenger, I'm just telling how it is, and I have a hunch I'm gonna tell a lot of Samsung fanboys how the Z2 beats the S5 like a stepchild. (besides all that I quite like the Z2 tab, but 6000mAh gonna run out fast, plus ppi is not that impressive)

One of the best tablets but lets just wait for the reviews or comparison before we jump to the conclusion.

this is an ARMS CPU tablet so you can not run Windows legacy apps on it because they were designed for Intel/AMD CPU's. The Windows 8/8.1 RT OS was designed to run ON ARMS CPU Tablets. It would be nice to see Windows RT on this Tablet. People put Windows RT down which was a wrong thing to do because it did not run old windows legacy programs. if they knew something about CPU design they would have realized that
Mobile ARMS CPU's are not the same as the CPU's used on Full power Desktop and Server Computers. Mi9crosoft has to redo it's legacy programs for mobile ARMS CPU's and that will take time but again I say Wiindows RT OS would look good on this ARMS CPU tablet

Specs [w]hore here, PPI is meh and fugly screen-to-body-ratio. Tab Pro/note series is better.

I'm waiting for a tablet where I can code in it. :(
Tablets are pretty pricey as it's only useful for fun.

Color me intrigued. Still feel a little burned by Sony after purchasing the Tablet S and seeing the support for it disappear so quickly. I won't buy another tablet unless it has front facing stereo speakers (thank you HTC One), so thankfully this checks that off the list.

The bezel is less of a concern for me. The bezel on my HTC One is almost too narrow. I don't have small hands and sometimes have trouble with one hand operation when reaching across the screen.
