Sony Xperia Tablet Z review: the company's best Android tablet yet

The Xperia Tablet Z serves as an excellent second screen. Remote functionality is easy to set up, while the display is one of the best we've seen from Sony's Xperia range, if not the market in total.

Pros
  • Wide viewing angles
  • Infrared blaster and remote apps easy to set up
  • Water-resistant, stylish design
Cons
  • Weedy charger, temperamental micro-USB port
  • Frustrating waterproof covers
