Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact review: light in the hand, heavy on the wallet

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.

Pros
  • Thin and light design
  • Stunning display
  • Fast performance
  • Long battery life
Cons
  • Expensive compared to similarly sized flagship tablets
  • Sony's Android skin feels dated
  • Poor camera
