Sony Xperia Tablet Z Wi-Fi - User Reviews

  • i need cover and scren plz

  • It can be connected via Wifi

  • can you please let me know its power consumption in an hour. mine is 10% in one hour with game of ludo.

  • I have it now Jan 2019, and I'm surprised how good it still working, specialy the batery. Great device !

  • Like the others I've upgraded to LineageOS 14.7 and the tablet still performs well. However it's now getting harder to charge so I'll install a new charging port.

  • Bought this beast on release and it still works like new after over 4 years. Even better actually with Android 7.1 thanks to LineageOS. Accidently sat on it once and bent it very slightly. You think the thing would care but nope. (Albeit the water resistance is almost certainly gone now because of a crack in the frame). Runs for days on stand by too. No noticeable scratches despite removing the protective cover. (Which I wouldn't recommend doing since that made touch input a bit oversensitive). I'm honestly flabbergasted how most manufacturers can't build tablets like this one nowadays.

  • Four and a half years from new and still faultless. A truly great tablet.

  • have upgraded last year from Lollipop to Cyanogen Android 6 and last month to Lineage OS Android 7.1.1 - no problems using TWRP to backup data then install Lineage OS - it's great to have the latest Android Nougat on a 3 year old tablet (got latest zip image from developer CaHbKaUp - an official version is promised later) more details at

  • So agree, i love this tablet, still running strong.

  • Been using this for 3 years now. worth every penny of it. hasn't given any trouble.

  • Incredible tablet !! About three years using it and excellent performance...One of the best, certainly.

  • Really it's unbelievable; I am so happy to have it

  • One of the best tablets ever. Cute design and smooth performance with android lollipop 5.1.1

  • I have it for 2 years now and it works perfect! The design is timeless!

  • Yes Data can be transformed to SD card

  • Great tablet with lollipop 5.0

  • its not 3g compatibale but its look very ultimate

  • Hi, maybe someone can tel if I can use pencil, stylus to draw, or maybe there is some special pencil? Thnaks

  • update to 4.4.4 .solved your problem

  • Super xperia tablet very like this tab.suer super im very happy

  • Great...4.4.4 updated.Everything ok.

  • It has 4.4.4 android.

  • I bought Sony Xperia Tablet Z Wifi from Ebay seller (Secondipity), it was manufacturer refurbished. Looked nice, but keyboard start blinking sometimes. I sent it back to them and ordered at the same way Sony Xperia Tablet Z Wifi+4G, the keyboard is still blinking sometimes. I don't know is the problem with every Sony Xperia Tablet Z Wifi or is the reason because it is manufacturer refurbished. Could anybody answer to this question? I would be very thankful about any information of that.

  • There will be two version of this tablet one with wifi only and another one with 3g&4g and wifi

  • Through Wi-Fi.

  • I am planning to buy this tab.I want to know how to connect to the internet because dis tab doesn't support SIM or 3G netwrok?

  • Hi I bought this tablet. It seems to be fine but something is weird about the display. I noticed that When a black background is being displayed, right corner of the screen at the bottom, is a little bit brighter than other parts. Is it natural or something is wrong with this tablet?!!!

  • I've upgraded to kitkat and it's running completely fine. I had issues unlocking screen and some freezing on Jellybean and now I no longer have this problem.

  • this is what we need to have as humans

  • Hi guys, has anyone upgraded Xperia Tablet Z LTE to Android 4.4 Kitkat yet? Is it working properly?

  • Those of u who complained about flickering..has d problem been solved? im planning to buy this tab. plz help!!!

  • Hi, with 32 gb sd card, walkman was able to play mp3, now with 64 gb, no songs... Songs are there, just wwlkman player somehow can't see them. Any ideas?

  • Great tablet easy to use, incredible resolution, better than the iPad, just got it and its the best purchase I've done so far, it seems that Sony is coming back

  • so you need a metal or glass back for....what?

  • I am very impress on this tablet because: .It has a higher resolution .Amazing 10.1 inches! .16GB Internal Storage plus 64GB SD card slot!! .IP57 Water and Dust Resistant .A fair 8MP camera plus 2.2MP front facing camera .Who cares about 4.1 Jelly bean? But upgradable to 4.3 Jelly bean Disadvantages: .Very EXPENSIVE! .Why not 4.4 Kitkat .Plastic body covering (back) That's all (Tell me your experience about this tablet.. T.Y)

  • The blinking seems to be a bug which is often seen when using keyboard in Chrome app. Let's wait and see if a fix will be released soon to fix this. Other than the blinking bug, the tablet is fantastic, best 150 euro i've spent :)

  • Best option to use when you take a shower or clean the dishes... It is light and the Walkman system, can update your songs (name, artist, album etc. with one click)... 1 Con... the facebook photos are too large and they may look washed. 5 gigas (Internet speed) and a router of 300 (N900) minimum required to see a HD Videos or Movies...

  • Please help tablet z screen always blink after i upgrade to 4.3.please help me

  • Hi guys please help me my tablet z screen alwats blink after i upgrade to 4.3.please help me

  • Hi, someone can help me by telling me if the apps can be transfer to SD? Because I am hesitating by getting the 32Gb or the 16Gb LTE, but I am not sure if 16Gb will be enough. I would surely go for the 16Gb/LTE if some of the apps can be transfer to SD as in Samsung phones. Thank you for the help.

  • i got new version 4.3 from 4 days and my tablet is better than before but i have problem in Sony select not open after upgrade

  • That i know. but in case if i wish to move 2 sd card. Is the new jellybean 4.3 update had this feature(move 2 sd)???

  • you dont need to move apps to sd the tablet lets you use all available space to install games or apps.

  • Got it yesterday and I am blown away by it.. I have been using iPad since the 1st gen and this was my first attempt outside Apple. I must say it is worth every dime. The sleekness, the build quality, the screen. It's a sheer delight to operate. Just upgraded it to 4.3 and it's even better now. And to top it all, the waterproof feature. I don't care what fanboys tell but I believe it is the best Android tablet around !!!

  • i would like to buy this tablet. so please clarify my doubt. Does it have move 2 sd card feature in the inbuild 4.1 jellybean or the latest 4.3 update??? iam a heavy gamer,. plz help.. Thanx in Advance

  • wifi model only supports wifi whereas the LTE model support also the sim card for 2g,3g or 4g network

  • LTE: 4G internet through cellphone provider, wi-fi not, simple explanation

  • Can anyone tell me wats the difference between the wifi and the LTE version.

  • I don't have this problem with mine. I suggest you return your unit as it appears to be faulty.

  • I have this device for more than a month now and its really a good device. The only problem with this device is that the lower half of the screen is less bright then the upper half, quite irritating.

  • yes is whaterproof like everithing that sony make now

  • For me one of the best tablet in the world, i'm whainting for the xperia Tablet z1 to replicate the best smartphone of the world xperia Z1

  • Is it waterproof?

  • I first bought the Tab 3 and found it very underwhelming. I traded it in for a Xperia z today and it is hands down a better tablet.

  • Asus Nexus 7 2013 FTW! \m/(-_-)\m/

  • xperia tablet z is the pest tablet in market now. you can not compaire it with samsung tab .it is even beter than note 10.1.

  • That's easy. It's Sony.

  • Can anyone tell me which tab is better between Sony Xperia Tab Z + Wi-Fi + 4G and Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 Thank you

  • Version 4.2.2 available from 28/08/2013

  • Has anyone seen the new version of Sony's rom yet? Version 4.2.2. As I like the current lay out of all the main buttons being near my thumbs I was wondering if anyone had seen or used the newer update.(I know its only rolled out to LTE version so far)

  • you are wrong sony is better than samsung ok!

  • If you got a different opinion state it with proof and not your personal opinion. or else post it in a Samsung forum...zzzzz

  • I recently got this, absolutely beautiful. Great design, sleek light weight. I did not wanted to spend more on LTE or 3G version as I mostly will use it in my home or office which has wi fi. the screen is gorgeous, photos and movies looks awesome. The processor is enough for games and other stuffs. I did not face any major lags. highly recommended..

  • I bought my Sony Experia Z yesterday and returned it today for a Samsung Note 10.1. Samsung is much better than Sony. Better graphics and colour and fonts, everything except the camera is better, and that i learned from my Samsung Galaxy 7.1.

  • Yes there is, the xperia Z Ultra is smaller, better, faster, and also water proof

  • Yes there is, the xperia Z Ultra is better and smaller

  • yes yes by end of the year

  • Yes, Sony announced that the tablet will get Android 4.3

  • Will it also get Android 4.3?

  • is it available in mauritius?

  • Sony go forward!!!

  • What makes also this tablet great that if you order from Sony, you'll get 6 month interest free finance. I've been looking for tablets for a few months and this is the one which combines all the great features what others don't. FullHD panel 2 gb RAM Quadcore CPU Reliable brand Great look Good price (if you choose finance plan, the 16gb wifi £63.18, the 32gb wifi £71.09 for 6 month)

  • Help..... I've found the clip manager small app and saved a few clips.But then couldn't find them! Then in notes I saw add clip and there they all where.But now I can not remove them!! PS this tab rocks loads better than Samsung as got 32gb and SD card

  • Definitly the best tablet out there. I've had pretty much all the new tablets now. This one feels the best, is the lightest and thinnest, has the most beautiful screen, and is the fastest on quadrant. (Reviews say 7300 but i got 8400 straight out of the box.)

  • it has a usb port or no ?

  • It's a best, shortest and most fully review that I seen. Thank you!

  • you mention emulators, have you tested epsxe?, if yes, have you test it with the openGL plugin? if yes, what settings did you used? i really want to use that plug-in but is beyond my understanding to make it fully work, i keep getting a lot of lag, with that plug-in only, all else is smooth

  • superb tablet, dual shock 3 compatibilty ( makes dead trigger very playable), emulators, super fast, i can't wait to test IM750 MHL adaptor so i can plug in to TV via HDMI, pin sharp screen, probably the best tablet for a long time. IM750 MHL adaptor, has anyone tested this for cec compatility ( ie, control tablet with tv remote)

  • if you compare (use compare tool on this page) this tablet with the xperia z and the ZL (5" phones), you will notice the specifications are practically the same, so the answer is yes, and actually it is clearly possible to install the tablet android on those phones

  • get MX player and all of its codecs, come people will tell you that you only need one or another codec but you can install them all, and you will be able to play any type of video file, also you should always use a class 10 sd card for better loading times

  • An absolutely brilliant tablet. Great for everyday task, including the occasional use as an umbrella.

  • The Xperia Tablet Z had little problem playing 1080p videos in MP4 and MKV format. DivX and XviD videos in HD however, seemed to present a problem as we only managed to get SD videos with these codecs going

  • 50/50, due to ipad mini popularity, its possible. Hail iOS!!

  • Ben, I think you need a game console, not a tablet, trolls...

  • Xperia Tablet Z waterproof test

  • Will Sony ever make a Tablet with the same specification of Tablet Z but with a size between 7 - 8 Inch?

  • an xperia tablet z is best of sony products ....more slimmer ..more elegance...& ilove it so much..... thanx sony

  • Has anyone actually testend the 64 gb sdxc compatibility ? The white papers say just 32 gb.

  • sorry hate to burst ur bubble but ur wishlist is not

  • Dear BEN, where the hell are you getting ur non-sense wishlist?

  • Ha... The could be rumoured sony xperia tablet z will have a cd reader these types of discs will be suitable: Playstation game discs, DVDs and blurays and CDs, it will have two ps1 or 2 controller ports, u can connect PS3 or 4 controllers via Bluetooth, plus: it will be available in all of the colours from these pages: ­ ­ And, The grand finale: Extreme water resistance: unlimited depth and unlimited time. =-D

  • Man, the sony xperia tablet z is not much the best of sony in a tablet... If the xperia tablet zxtra got rumoured then it will really be the best of sony in a tablet with a cd reader (can read Playstation 1,2,3 and so on games, DVDs and Blu-ray Discs, and CDs) and ps1 or 2 controller ports.. U can connect wireless ps3 or 4 controllers to that could be rumoured tablet...

  • Even Intel Core i5 PCs can't emulate PS2 smoothly (I get 21-27fps) and you want a tablet to emulate PS3 and PS4... LOL

  • Um, the tablet's screen is 10.1". Measure the cd. It may be smaller lol. Cos it's the best of Sony in a tablet, blu ray discs might be read well, too. =) the normal will be released in may, there could be a ZXtra in August if its rumoured. =)

  • dude, a cd reader would take too much space xD

  • I do not have this tablet but, I think they could make a Sony Xperia Tablet ZXtra with these extra features n specs: Play PS 1,2,3 and upcoming ps4 games by disc (U can put the disc in the tablet) Watch movies or play CDs by disc (U can put the disc in the tablet) Extra water resistance (Unlimited depth, unlimited time) Playstation controller ports There could be a BUZZ junior Cradle for playing buzz junior, but there needs to be room for the Playstation controller ports.

  • Personally, I really liked this Tablet! I live in the UK and I travel alot for my business, so having a Tablet that has near PC functionality with fast WiFi speeds that I can easily carry with me is absolutely essential to me. I have to say though, I found the SONY XPERIA Z Tablet that they have here in the UK absolutely PERFECT for this! In fact, my only initial gripe is that with tablets in general, you have to be much more careful about protecting the screen. But thankfully I managed to get around this pretty well by finding a decent case for it that has a strong lightweight lid, which totally solved the problem! Was pretty darn cheap too (I think it cost me less than 10 bucks on Amazon). One thing I really love about this case even more is that the one I found came built in with a magnetic sleep sensor, which automatically turns the tablet on and off INSTANTLY (no seconds to wait like on my old Laptop). Only one model I have found so far that does this feature though, which I think they called it something daft like the "G-Hub" case (stands for gadget hub, apparently!) but all joking aside, it truly was BRILLIANT! If anyone was curious, here's the link to it... Totally made my Tablet the best darned portable computer I have ever owned!

  • This device is due towards the end of May yet but for those impatient ones, you can get one already on ebay as this is already available in Japan but is costlier (about a $100 more than the SRP).

  • I couldn't wait for this sexay coming to Malaysia...! It's totally knock Apple iPad 4 out if on my hand now..It's SHOW OFF time, SONY ! Bravo !

  • Bad tablet? Have tried one? Afraid of sony to reach the top? Stop trolling, admire the beauty of the xperia.tablet z. No tablet can match this.

  • Dude that's their trademark!

  • sony xperia tablet z is very good tablet comparing it to another android tablets

  • man once again sony knocks 'em out with its brilliant technology yet i m really waiting for sony to change there design series and bring something new 'caz ..... All Xperias R THE SAAAME..!! still cant say that the design's bad

  • No led flash? 499� in 2013 year,and buy tablet without flash and voice call? Well, for that reason samsung will continue dominate ....

  • TO: SONY management, i hope they could read this post...i have a SONY XPERIA ACRO S phone, i'm really one of those happy owner of this unit, for 5 months now since i bought it. With my renewed trust with their products,i'm planning to by a XPERIA TABLET Z...I checked user opinions in this website about XPERIA Z PHONE, as i did before buying my ACRO S. Sadly, a lot of issues where posted on XPERIA Z phone... With that, i am again hesitating to buy the XPERIA TABLET Z...I hope SONY should give testing period on their new mobile devices first, prior to market release. To ensure its operation would be excellent... Just a wish though for SONY.

  • I found it intresting in most specification but I have to say its not really that good for a heavy use since its battery only 6,000 MAH� For such a high features and high screen resolution, its gonna drain too fast, its not gonna last for 10 Hr multimedia use as mentioned.

  • I still waiting for this device....

  • Congrats to Sony for the recent success....I was worried they were finished. Tablet looks sweet.

  • are u sure about the price ?

  • Impressed with the specifications. Waiting for launch.

  • for os on tablet i still choose ios, but for the design, i have to admit that xperia tablet z is the best. i only hope apple could use this design and glass like on iphone 4 on their next gen tablet since ipad 2 came out. but too bad their newest design is like ipad mini right now, it's not bad but still xperia z tablet design is better. if only there is ios on this xperia tablet and it will be perfect for me.

  • best tablet in the world. with water proof. first tablet full glasses...if now iPad 5 available ..I will choose the Z

  • is really necessary the resolution of the iPad 3?? Full HD is enough for standards, if you want really better resolution look for XD resolution or 4K res...only TV and some mac/pc have that res....

  • iPad killer?? No need to kill them. Apple is dying slowly, they need to bring Steve back to life. On the other hand, this tab is a beauty. I am definitely getting one. Cheers!!

  • this Tablet z realy up normal ,,, go sony ,,, like

  • This should has equip with Krait 300 or 400 rather than S4 Pro with mostly the sam spec as its phone

  • what!?!?!?!??!? thats really a bad tablet It's shame that they call it's water proof!! don't waste your money

  • this tablet is water proof?

  • as said by many tech webpages the price will start at US$499

  • where is usb host?!

  • Should be around a few weeks after the Xperia Z.

  • Are you sure about this price??!!! Cuz this is the Price of Xperia Tablet S... Any sorce for this....plzz let me know....thankx

  • omg i need this!!!! cant wait

  • Looks decent, Specs are also good. Just hope the performance is also better.. I am going to buy this..

  • 499 $ for 16 G 599 $ for 32 G

  • The best tablet ever!!!!

  • It looks great and thin. Of course it is better than others.

  • Lower screen resolution than iPad 3

  • when this tablet walk near ipad the Z has troll face

  • It agood one for acountry like iraq because there no good 3g and 4g networks and increasing the connectivity in the tablets is useless in iraq with more price

  • Any idea when the wifi-version will be coming to Malaysia? Can't wait to get this..

  • Absolutely yummy.want it now!!

  • any guess for expected price for wifi version 16 gb ?

  • absolutely an iPad killer

  • wow,absolutely an iPad killer
