Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet review
The tablet market has become a very different place since Sony first launched a 10-inch tablet. Where then the Xperia Z2 Tablet was a credible threat to the iPad in a new and exciting arena, the Xperia Z4 Tablet landed in a very different world.
And things have changed again since Sony launched this tablet in 2015. There's now competition from Google with the Pixel C as well as two new iPad Pro devices to compete with. The Nexus range has even dropped out of the tablet game altogether.
Sony had the chance to smash and grab with a fantastic Android tablet and it made a good product - it just didn't seem to sell very well.
And now there are even rumors of a Sony Xperia Z6 Tablet in the works as well - it'll be skipping the Z5 to keep up with the number of the flagship phone range - but no details are firm at this time. The main question is, is the Xperia Z4 Tablet still worth buying?
Design and display
Sony's design is as polarising as you can get – you really do either love it or hate it.
If you can see what the brand is trying to do, then the first thing you notice when picking up the Xperia Z4 Tablet is the weight. It's lighter than ever before at 392g, and the difference is noticeable.
The back of the Xperia Z4 Tablet isn't as cheap-feeling, or looking, as on previous iterations. This time around it's a high-end polycarbonate material that, while not feeling as nice as the iPad's brushed metal, looks great and feels easy and comfortable to grip.
Sony has managed to make the slate even thinner this time around, without giving it a flimsy feel. It's only 6.1mm thick, the same as the iPad Air 2, but you get the feeling it would blow away a little more easily than Apple's slate would.
At one point I was taking some photos of the sky with the Xperia Z4 Tablet (for reviewing purposes –I'm not into clouds or anything), and I did have to tighten my grip at one stage due to a slight gust – if you weren't paying attention this tablet could easily be blown from your hands.
Sony's infamous flaps are once again in play, there to keep the tablet water- and dust-resistant to a high degree of IP65 and IP68, but they don't protrude as much as on previous models, and are a lot less obtrusive at first glance.
The Z4 tablet is sturdier too, despite being thinner. When reviewing the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet I managed to break off one of the flaps by mistake – it just snapped off in my fingers when I was trying to open it to charge the tablet.
This time around Sony has taken the criticism of the flap system on board, and while not replacing them entirely, it has refined them to make them a little sturdier, and much easier to pop in and out without the risk of them coming off.
The waterproofing is a big bonus, and makes the tablet a lot more useable around the house – take it into the bath to read a book or watch a video and you won't have to worry about it slipping from your grasp.
I find the feature particularly welcome when I'm cooking – it doesn't matter if you manage to slather your slate in flour and grease while using your grimy finger on a recipe app, as you can just wipe it clean.
It's worth bearing in mind that Sony has recently said it doesn't recommend using its products under water even though they are waterproof. It basically means don't leave your tablet in water for days on end or get it soaking wet a couple of times a day.
Although the waterproofing arguably makes the Z4 one of the most robust tablets on the market, the rest of the design does give you the feeling that it would snap on the slightest drop.
The power button is on the left-hand side, with the volume rocker just underneath. Both are difficult to reach, but it's not clear where they could be better located on a 10-inch slate – you'll just have to deal with the fact that you'll be using two hands when changing the volume or turning the screen on and off.
A big design change is the lack of a dock connector at the bottom, which enables the tablet to be made that little bit thinner.
The display is a 10.1-inch stunning 2K job with a pixel resolution of 2560 x 1600. It looks great, delivering really sharp images, and is a real step up compared to the 1200 x 1920 setup we saw on the Xperia Z2 Tablet.
Watching video is a real treat here – you're getting 299 pixels per inch sharpness, better than the 264ppi on the iPad Air 2, in addition to the screen itself being significantly bigger than Apple's alternative.
As with previous models, Sony has surrounded the tablet with pretty hefty bezels. These have been whittled down a little further than on the Xperia Z2 Tablet, but they're still quite cumbersome.
I like them though – I've got some pretty thick thumbs to fit in those bezels and it means I'm not tapping the tablet when I'm focusing on a different area, as I sometimes find myself doing with a caseless iPad.
They're not to everyone's taste, though, and Sony could do with shaving them down a little more and making the slate a little smaller overall.
The display reproduces colours beautifully. Whether you're using apps,watching video or just browsing the web the image quality is very impressive.
The screen brightness leaves a little to be desired though; while using the tablet outside I sometimes struggled to see the picture clearly, and got a lot of glare off the front.
Here's a photo of it on full brightness and the image is really difficult to view on a sunny day.
I didn't have any issues while using it in our brightly lit office, but you're likely to need to set the brightness to maximum when you're out and about.

As superpowers go, being skinnier than an 8st weakling and lighter than a sack of feathers won't make Thor jealous. But then again Thor's not a tablet.
The Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet is a tablet and it has precisely those qualities: it's just 7.6mm thick and weighs a mere 389g. Plus, it now comes bundled with an also-skinny keyboard as standard (from most places). Marvel is probably selling the film rights as we speak.
All of which means that this Android tab really offers something worth ditching an iPad for. For some people, anyway.
What type of people? Those who want to do a bit of work or writing instead of just playing Soda Crush Saga 24/7. Some of the laptop-aping bits don’t perfectly work, but we like what Sony’s trying to do here.

Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet review
Sony has a few unique selling points up its sleeve, including one which may even tempt gamers away from Apple's tablets. PlayStation Remote Play support enables those with a PS4 to connect over the same Wi-Fi network as the tablet and use it as a second screen.
It's been available on Sony's other flagship products before, and this isn't the first time a tablet has been compatible, but the display on the Z4 Tablet is another level compared to previous Sony devices, and it just makes me want to use it to play games on.
Connecting up your PS4 here allows for a second 2K screen – you really can't fault that. I hooked the Z4 tablet up with my PS4 at home and, believe me, you're not going to want to clip it onto your controller. The weight isn't an issue, but it's just too big to wield.
Instead I found myself just leaning it up against something on a table, connecting up my controller and playing games in beautiful 2K.
The Wi-Fi signal dropped out once when first connecting, but from there I managed to fit in a full 30 minute GTA V session without any issues. I've even managed to connect it up and play a couple of games of Rocket League in my kitchen while someone else uses the TV in the living room.
You can play games without a controller and use the display instead, but I really don't recommend it unless you're just playing some puzzle games; it's too unwieldy. You've likely already got a PS4 controller if you have the console, so just connect that up and get the full experience.
It's a big selling point though – and will become more so as Sony begins to expand its Remote Play service so that it can run off different Wi-Fi signals. It'll be possible for you to play PS4 games running in your living room at home on the train, or in another country when you're on holiday.
Some might not like the idea of their PlayStation still running at home as you play it on a second screen, but it's arguably the future of mobile gaming, and it's a feature many are clamoring for.
Keyboard and docking
Sony has never really been one for accessories in the past, but it has decided to buck the trend with the Xperia Z4 Tablet and offer a Bluetooth keyboard alongside it.
I had one to test alongside the review tablet, and I loved it. I've always found Sony's slates to be a little difficult to prop up, so having a Bluetooth keyboard to dock it into so it doesn't fall over works a treat.
Sadly the dock only goes to one position. This is certainly not the Surface Pro 3, with countless options for propping it up, but it does give you a good view when you're typing and for watching movies.
The keyboard connects via Bluetooth – the tablet automatically recognises the keyboard and notifies you to turn on Bluetooth, which is a nifty feature, giving you a quick kick under the table to warn you why nothing's happening when you type.
I found that the keyboard connected quickly without any issues. The keys are well placed but they take some getting used to – but then again so does every new keyboard.
The trackpad is a little on the small side, and I found myself ditching it in favour of the touch functionality on the main screen. Some users will prefer the trackpad, but I found it a little slow as well.
Another smart feature is that the Xperia Z4 Tablet automatically opens up a little taskbar along the left-hand corner of the screen with key apps you're likely be using when the keyboard is connected.
These kick off with Google apps such as Chrome, YouTube and Gmail, but you can easily swap in other apps by pressing the two dots to the right to open up a menu.
The slate also snaps down onto the keyboard to give it that little bit of extra protection when it's in your bag. Be warned, though, that while the tablet is waterproof and dustproof, the keyboard isn't.
Everything just kind of works with the new Bluetooth keyboard, but the main sticking point could be the price. If you could pick it up alongside the Xperia Z4 Tablet for under £100/$120 it would be a great accessory, but my inkling is that Sony may want a little more for it; pricing hasn't been announced at the time of writing.
Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet review
The Xperia Z4 Tablet has a 6,000mAh non-removable battery inside, a hefty unit for any tablet, but it hasn't changed since the same cell was included in the original Tablet Z many moons ago.
Considering that Sony has upped the display – the biggest battery drainer – it begs the question as to whether the battery should have been improved as well.
The Xperia Z4 Tablet has a similar battery life to the 17-18 hours of video Sony was stating at the Z2 Tablet launch.
Sony should be praised for delivering that kind of battery life considering the sharpness of the Z4's display – you'll be able to get through a long-haul flight's worth of movies and not have to worry about the tablet dying on you.
We ran the Nyan Gareth video – our traditional battery test of a 90-minute straight video at 100% brightness – and managed to get a score of 79%.
Considering that the Xperia Z2 Tablet scored 72% this is quite impressive, and Sony has clearly made some improvements under the hood to obtain this level of performance.
I then ran the test again at 60% brightness, as personally I'm willing to sacrifice a little screen brightness for an extra film's worth of battery life, but I only managed to get a score of 81%, so it's not really worth dropping the brightness when watching video, as you won't see a big difference in battery life.
General battery life proved impressive as well. I had the Z4 idle in my bag idle over a weekend and I didn't see more than 20% of the battery drain, even though the tablet was connecting to Wi-Fi and receiving notifications.
It just proves that the big battery drainer here is the display – although it's worth it for such a beautiful-looking screen.
I did find charging an almighty task though. Tablets usually take quite a while to get up to full charge, but using my normal phone charger made for a particularly slow process. Fast charging technology would be a nice touch here.
Also it's worth noting that there's no wireless charging option, which would have been a welcome addition for those who don't want to be restricted by a cable.
The Xperia Z4 Tablet comes with Android 5.0 Lollipop, and you get to use all of Google's freshly implemented features.
However, Sony's UI is as prevalent as ever, which will disappoint some. It doesn't really add much to the Android experience, and I can see how it may confuse new users. Sony isn't likely to drop it though, so it seems that we're stuck with it.
Sony has also confirmed it will bring Android 6 Marshmallow software to the Xperia Z4 Tablet, but it's not ready yet. That's a disappointment considering Marshmallow came out in October 2015 and it's still not ready.
Sony has taken inspiration from Google's Material Design, but the new design language isn't fully implemented; I like the new minimalist design Google is offering with stock Android, but Sony changes all the icons to its standard look, which puts a dampener on the user experience for me.
One of the big new features of Android Lollipop is lock screen notifications, and these come in very useful. Instead of having to swipe down to read your latest goings on you can just hit the power button on the left-hand side and everything is there.
Tap and unlock to view the notifications in more detail, or just swipe them away if you're not that interested. It's smart, and it's one of the nicest Android additions we've seen in a few years.
With Samsung dropping a lot of its bloatware apps from the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, Sony is becoming potentially the biggest culprit for filling its devices with largely useless services.
Some of the pre-installed apps are useful of course, such as the PlayStation app – having this installed ready and waiting makes sense, especially with the Remote Play feature on the new tablet.
But there are also the likes of Sketch, Xperia Lounge, SocialLife and Lifelog, which I find utterly useless and which take up precious storage space – and the worst part is that none of them can be deleted.
Sony really needs to understand that people don't want to waste their precious storage space on apps they're never going to use, and filling its devices full of these will make people look toward stock versions in the future.
The slate also comes with a few third-party services pre-installed, including some useful ones such as Facebook, Spotify and Skype.
The addition of the Android Lollipop features is welcome, but Sony has some real work to do before I want to shout from the rooftops about its tablet software. It's a bland, functional interface that harks back to darker days of tablet design – although it should be said that it is thoroughly usable.
