Sony's Z3 Tablet Compact is a well-made, thin and light device with a stunning display, brisk performance and robust battery life. Still, it's difficult to recommend at this price ($445 and up) when there are other thin and light flagship tablets that cost less, many of which offer higher-resolution screens and more capable cameras.

It doesn't offer staggering value, but a very slim, very light waterproof frame and good performance keep this riding high among the most attractive choices for on-the-go tablet fondlers.
