How we score

The Engadget Score is a unique ranking of products based on extensive independent research and analysis by our expert editorial and research teams. The Global Score is arrived at only after curating hundreds, sometimes thousands of weighted data points (such as critic and user reviews).

Engadget Review

Not only is the Tablet Z2 the thinnest and lightest tab Sony has ever made, but also it's far and away the best. It's trim design and strong spec sheet makes it a strong competitor against similarly sized tabs from Sony's arch-rival, Samsung.

Pros
  • Incredibly thin andwaterproof, too
  • Snappy performance
  • Sony's Android UI is thoughtful and lightweight
Cons
  • Relatively short battery life
  • Glossy screen
  • Middling speakers
  • Both cameras are underwhelming
