Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet review: A top-tier slate with a familiar face

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
