Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet is a high-level Android portable tablet launched in 2014, packed with a 10.1-inches capacitive screen, a high performance Quad-Core processor clocking at 2300 MHz, and two cameras, an 8.1 mega-pixels back camera and a 2.2 mega-pixels front camera. That's all? No, it's just the tip of the iceberg.

Being just 0.25" thick,this tablet is incredibly slim and stilized. The Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet only has 10.47" long, but it's able to fit a a 10.1 inches screen. This tablet is offerred in 2 different color options, black and white. This tablet is much lighter than what one would expect from a portable tablet of this size.

Sony designed the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet with a good looking 10.1 inches display, and a 1200 x 1920 resolution, which makes everything look very nice. Its display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and is multi-touch enabled.

This tablet ships with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 MSM8974-AB system chip, including a very fast 2300 megahertz Quad-Core processing unit and a huge 3 GB of RAM. Graphic rendering often uses a lot of CPU cycles, so it also uses an Adreno 330 GPU working at 450 megahertz to take some work out of the CPU. An interesting feature of this tablet is the 16 GB quite large internal storage and a slot for an external memory card, which allows you to install a couple hundred apps without running out of space.

The Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet is equipped with two cameras, an 8.1 megapixels back facing camera and a 2.2 mega-pixels front-facing camera. This tablet also captures videos in Full HD 1920x1080. To complete the camera, it also features a lot of interesting characteristics: auto-focus, fast burst mode, face detection shooting, digital image stabilization, HDR mode and smile detection shooting.

This tablet provides Wi-Fi connectivity (and it can be shared with other devices around, as a mobile hotspot), 4G LTE high speed connectivity and also HSPA+ connectivity, that is a slower 4G network and fast 3G data connection, using HSDPA, HSUPA and EDGE technologies. This device uses a Micro SIM card for GSM carriers.

The Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet also comes with some nice characteristics as NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your tablet close to another NFC device or tag), Bluetooth (4.0) and GPS (Global Positioning System), and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

The Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet uses a 6000 mAh big replaceable battery, enough to provide the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet with an incredible battery duration.

Sony sells the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet for $ 249, which is a rather high price for comparing with other similar devices. No matter whether you will use this device for gaming, you love taking photographs, want a work tablet device or are looking for a social tablet device, you will definitely love this device.
