Review Performance Sony Xperia Tablet Z + Specs

The Sony Xperia Tablet Z has dual band WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, an FM radio and a GPS with GLONASS. There's a front 2MP video chat camera and a rear 8.1MP camera with Sony's Exmor R sensor and HDR but no flash. It can shoot 1080p video and offers image stabilization. For more technically adventurous types, the Sony Tablet is rootable and you can install custom ROMs. Sony is very good when it comes to supporting devs who wish to customize their tablets and smartphones.  This is definitely a better than average tablet camera, though it doesn't impress us nearly as much as the Z smartphone's 13MP shooter.

Sony Xperia Tablet Z Review

Display: Mobile Bravia 2
Sony's full HD 1920 x 1200, 224 PPI Mobile Bravia 2 display is absolutely lovely. Colors are rich and natural with a wide color gamut, it has great contrast and blacks are pleasingly deep.

Horsepower and Performance
As of this writing, the Tablet Z takes the honor as the fastest Android tablet according to benchmarks. We've seen the quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU clocked at 1.5GHz in several high end smartphones since the fall of 2012, and this is the first time it's made its way into a tablet.

USB port handles HDMI and USB Host for Peripherals Too
One of the appealing things about Android tablets is that they behave more like portable computers than does the iPad. The tablet can output wirelessly using DLNA or via HDMI to a monitor, projector or HD TV. It can access USB peripherals like flash drives, game controllers, keyboards and mice. USB 3G/4G dongle drivers are not available for stock Android.

Sony's Playstation Mobile, Music Unlimited, Video Unlimited, Crackle streaming movies/TV shows and more are loaded on the tablet. We particularly like the AV Remote that can control most any piece of home theatre gear.

The front 2MP camera is better than average, yielding bright and not too noisy video chat footage in Skype and Google Chat. The rear 8.1MP camera with Exmor R sensor looks great on paper, but it only performed well in good lighting.

Battery Life
The Xperia Tablet Z has a 6,000 mAh Lithium Ion battery that's sealed inside. Granted, there are tablets with higher capacity batteries on the market, but the Sony holds its own thanks to the power frugal Snapdragon S4 Pro and Sony's good power management.
