Sony Xperia Tablet Z is a mid level tablet released some years ago, in 2013, with a great performance 1.5 gigahertz Quad-Core processor, a huge 10.1-inches multi touch screen, and 2 cameras, an 8.1 megapixels back side camera and a 2.2 mega-pixels front camera.

Sony decided to build the Sony Xperia Tablet Z using a good performance Quad-Core processing unit speeding at 1500 MHz, bundled in a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 chip and a great 2 GB of RAM memory. Graphic rendering often uses lots of processing power, so this device counts with an additional Adreno 320 GPU running at 400 megahertz to improve overall performance. This tablet has aquite big 16 GB internal memory and an SD memory slot, which allows you to store a couple hundred games and applications without any trouble.

The Sony Xperia Tablet Z feels much lighter than what you would expect from a tablet this size. Sony sells the Sony Xperia Tablet Z in black and white. The Sony Xperia Tablet Z is slim and practical, being just 0.27 inches thick. This device is only 10.47" long and 6.77 inches wide, but it's still able to fit a a 10.1 inches display.

This tablet has a good looking 10.1-inches screen with a 1200 x 1920 resolution, making everything look colorful and brightful. Its screen uses TFT capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch for gestures like pinch and zoom.

The Sony Xperia Tablet Z is equipped with two cameras, an 8.1 megapixels back-facing camera and a 2.2 megapixels front facing camera. It is capable of shooting videos in Full HD 1920x1080. This camera also has a lot of valuable features: auto-focus, digital image stabilization, fast burst mode, face detection shooting, HDR mode, smile detection shooting and geo tagging.

This tablet packs a high capacity 6000 mAh Li-Polymer non-removable battery, enough to provide the Sony Xperia Tablet Z with an incredibly long battery duration. An issue to take into account is that this tablet's battery is not replaceable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it begins to get older, even though with such a big battery you will probably replace this tablet before that happens.

This tablet provides wifi capability (and it can be shared with other devices around, as a mobile hotspot), LTE (4G) high speed connection type and also HSPA+ connection type, a bit slower 4G network or fast 3G connectivity, supported by HSDPA, HSUPA and EDGE technologies. This tablet uses a Micro SIM card to use GSM services.

This device also includes many interesting features like Bluetooth (4.0), GPS Localization, Infrared Blaster and NFC (Near Field Communication), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This tablet is a quite good tablet and it's priced about 435 dollars, which is similar to other similar tablets. This device is the correct choice no matter if you need a work tablet, want this tablet majorly for internet broswing and social networks or are looking for a gamer tablet.
