Xperia z 2 tablet or Samsung Galaxy Note (2014) or Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro?
I hope you get to see this in time if you're buying one...
The two advantages are waterproofing and the magnetic dock. The magnetic dock is particularly relevant if you are already used to using an attached keyboard with Android.
If your portability requirement is ploppability, i.e. you are not literally typing on your lap
but always on a surface of some sort, then a bluetooth keyboard and then either a
stand folio case or the magnetic dock are great. And when you don't need a full keyboard
it is a much better tablet than the detachable tablets are.
You will want a magnetic dock. It keeps you from flipping open the micro-usb cover port
all the time. That would undermine the waterproofing, and if that isn't important to you
then why get the Xperia? You then plop in a 64 or 128 GB sdxc card and never open any
of the ports on your tablet after that. 16 GB is enough for apps when you can place your
music and your movies on the sd card.
If you're *not* watching movies then the galaxy note might be better, since the extra
resolution could be useful if you're mostly doing text editing and/or code development.
But the extra resolution doesn't do much good when movies are shot to be seen in 1080p.
The higher quality display with "only" 1080p works better for movies.
but Sony Xperia Z2 has faster processor speed (2.3 ghz vs 1.9 ghz) , more pixel front camera (2.2 m vs 2 m) ,
I personal prefer to Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (2014), by compare them at
I have to say the lag that people talked about on the Note is only noticeable using touchwiz, with the Nova launcher it's hardly there at all, the tablet flies. I love the s-pen and drawing on the Note is a pleasure. I suspect the Z2 is marginally less laggy but we're really comparing a Ferrari with a Lamborghini, they're both very high performance.
Moral of the story: Avoid PC World.
