Engadget Review

Sony's Xperia Z4 Tablet is a fantastic Android device lumbered with a pointless keyboard dock. If you can pick one up alone, it might be the perfect tablet for you, but it's too expensive to recommend with the dock included.

Sony's Xperia Z4 Tablet is the best Android tablet available on the market right now, and the only one capable of putting up a fight against the iPad Air 2.

For novice Android users with a desire to greatly personalize their experience, the Sony Xperia Z4 is a beautifully constructed tablet with high-end specs that won't disappoint.

The Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet has all the style, power and stunning screen quality necessary to make it a true iPad Air 2 rival.

Apple’s 2015 MacBook is one attempt at creating an evolved version of the netbook, and Sony’s Xperia Z4 Tablet ... offers another. The big difference is that the MacBook is a flawed representation of a future that is yet to come, whereas Sony’s hybrid offering is just flawed.

The Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet is one of the slickest Android tablets out there. It has power that will leave many standing, but you'll have to pay a high price to own one.

After spending time with the Sony I have genuinely found what I believe to be the best tablet around. ... With some work I think Remote Play could be amazing for Sony, and when it worked well on the Xperia Z4 I loved using it, but it’s too buggy to be used be really serious gamers at the moment.

Superb battery life, plenty of power, a slim body and super vivid (maybe too vivid for some) screen make it one of the best Android alternatives to an iPad Air 2.

The first time I saw an Xperia Z4 Tablet was at the Mobile World Congress earlier this year. I called it ‘love at first sight’ — what a bold claim. Now I’m glad to say it was more than a holiday romance.

The Z4 Tablet is not as powerful as something like the Microsoft Surface 3, which also relies on its keyboard cover to give it its edge over rivals, but it's slimmer and lighter and available for a similar price. Ultimately, it's a great little tablet, whether for work or play.
