Rated 5 out of 5
by technogeek1963 The best Android tablet on the market period.
I only had this tablet a day, but this tablet is so terrific that I wanted to share my enthusiasm with the public. SONY has outdone themselves. This tablet is great, because it's so light weight and responsive. The only problem I have is a minor software issue. when I open up Chrome the menu tab on the right is not too responsive. As for the display, I think it is very good. I consider myself a techno buff/guru. This tablet has met my expectations and needs. Oodles to Sony. Did I mention how light weight it is. That is so awesome in my opinion!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Squirrel Very happy with the Z2
I have had the Z2 about 3 weeks and like the product very much.
- It is incredibly light weight and easy to hold
- It is incredibly fast and able to multi task apps without lag
- the screen is great for reading documents (my main use)
- The thing is waterproof (tested and confirmed). I have a Z1 phone that I also think is great and was the reason why I went for Sony again for the tablet. The flaps that protect the ports feel a bit flimsy but are actually really tough - I've practiced a lot with my Z1 and the don't break or wear out.
- The Sony ecosystem is good - I connected my phone and tablet with a simple touch through the nfc.
- battery life I have found to be excellent - easy get a full day continuous use, however charging is not fast (the Z1 magnetic charger does however fit the Z2).
- Please provide additional accessories sony - I have the cover but would like screen protectors
- A Samsung style stylus would be useful
- The headphone jack is in the wrong place - this should be on the top of the device - why put it underneath so it doesn't stand in landscape properly ?

Rated 1 out of 5 by Alexus Beware of major existing issue
If you are planning on ordering this tablet - be aware of its currently existing issue. At some random point during the usage of the tablet its touchscreen may stop registering the touches properly. For example, it may start to "skip" some of your touches or might register a single momentary touch as a "double tap" or a "long tap", making the whole tablet feel very "laggy" and barely usable. As of June 4th, 2014, this STILL happens even after the latest official software update, and this happens for MANY people all around the world (a simple Google search for "touchscreen problem" for this specific model will show you that). Luckily there's a "quick fix" - if you start getting this "touchscreen lag" you can just put tablet to sleep by pressing the power button then immediately wake it up by pressing the power button again. After that the "touchscreen lag" usually goes away. Unfortunately this "fix" is very temporary and after some time the "lag" appears again. If you do not want to deal with possibility of getting this "lag" on your tablet - I highly recommend waiting for a PROPER software fix which will completely and permanently get rid of this issue.

Rated 3 out of 5 by AlexandreQMJ Some huge fails
Sorry, I really loved this tablet, when you get it in you hands, even if you are used with good piece of tech gadgets you will become impressed, but are 2 huge mistskes with this one.
1 - The screen has problems, Sony tried to fix it, but wasnt enough, the problems continue happens, hope more updates come to solve this.
2 - This tablet has a huge design problem, and i'm suprise that no one notice that, the headphones jack is in the worst place that could be. Sony made this tablet to be a landscape tablet, and with the oficial cover is terrible to use it with earphones, the headphones should be in the side or in the top of the tablet, the only way to use it like this is take the tablet off the cover and put it upside down, but it is too much work to do it everytime. With 3 weeks using it I notice that, and i'm really suprise how the Sony designers(one of the good features of the brand) didn't saw that.
In my opinion the jack could be in the same side of the tablet, but in the side, not in the bottle(terrible place)
On all other stuff comparing with others this tablet is just perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by normie05 Best Tablet I have owned
I am pleased with the picture quality. It has a deep rich picture. The sound is very good as far as tablets go. The bluetooth is tops. It picks up my network and external speaker with no effort once you set it up. The batter could be a tad better as I like my pic brite. The sony staff at the sony store needs to be trained a bit better with product info. I had many call backs on bad info they provided. Like the hdmi cable I ordered and the sales rep forgot to say I needed the adaper for the cable etc. Intrest rate on my promo was not set up good. Months to pay back etc. I was told 24 months but got only 6 month to pay. Be careful the call center is not in the usa. Many of the sales persons dont know there stuff. Next time I will be more prepared before I call the sony store..All in all get the tablet you wont be sorry. Its a keeper

Rated 4 out of 5 by Greenboots Beautiful Picture Quality
Pros: The picture quality is stunning. 3D works great. The ability of the tv to upgrade picture quality works great too. Normal DVDs and .avi files look like HD quality video.
Cons: the sound quality is very poor wo we had to invest in a sound bar. The tv does DLNA and will connect to my Plex media server however the video controls are very limited. There is no fast forward only the ability to skip forward or backward 30 seconds. When you do skip forward or backwards it takes about 8 seconds to actually skip so basically you're skipping about 22 seconds. if you pause your video more than a minute or so the tv loses connection and you have to start the video over from the beginning. If you were an hour into the move when it disconnected it will take about 15 minutes of skipping to get back to where you left off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MollyM Wow! My best tablet!
I own many tablets and this is one of the best. The clarity of the screen is the best. The speed in which I can navigate through sites is super fast. The looks are sleek and suggest a price well over what it costs. Movie viewing is rich looking and preferred over all my tablets. I read many reviews before purchasing this and there were a few remarks on the battery life. I do not see this. (and I am a gamer). I downloaded my reader apps and also read from it, (which is preferable to any of my two well know readers) . I am a very satisfied buyer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Greg3675 Perfect for My Needs
I've had the Sony tablet for about 8 months now and really like all the features. This is the first tablet I've owed so don't have any previous experience. I read all the reviews and comments and decided on this tablet for a couple reasons
1. Fast processor
2. Water proof (I use on my boat)
3. Very comparable to the IPADs
If I had one complaint it is the location of the head phone jack -- not a convenient location......
Video playback is great, speed is great, pictures are really nice..... I would highly recommend this Tablet.
