It also has a pretty good camera, particularly for a tablet. You'll fi nd an 8.1Mp camera around the back. This has autofocus and captures 3264 x 2448 pixel images which look good on the Xperia Z2 Tablet's display.
Additional features include Exmor RS for mobile, which is designed to help users take goodlooking shots in any light, as well as geo-tagging, touch focus, face- and smile detection, HDR and a panorama.
The rear-facing camera captures 1080p video at 30fps. Up front there is a 2Mp webcam for selfi es and video chat. Here are some test images and test video footage, all taken from the rear-facing camera. Click to view at full size. One problem we had was that we found it di cult to see what was on the screen when taking photos in natural daylight.
Sony's Xperia Z2 Tablet runs Android 4.4 KitKat, with relatively little customisation. It does have Sony's user interface over the top of vanilla Android.
It's a stylish customisation that thankfully doesn't take over the OS in the way that Samsung and HTC's do. KitKat is Google's best ever tablet OS. Feature rich, easy to use and good to look at. It o ers full access to the Google Play app- and media stores, as well as Sony's own stores and apps.
You can simply mount the Xperia Z2 Tablet as external storage on your PC, but Sony also provides software to make pairing and synching a little easier.
We haven't yet had time to properly test the Xperia Z2 Tablet's battery life and will update this review when we do. Our early experience of using the Z2 Tablet suggest that it won't be a problem, despite the killer power specs.
That 6000mAh battery cell should help. And, according to the company, there's also the Battery STAMINA mode, designed to prolong battery life. We'll test it and get back to you. Find out more about which tablet to buy in our tablets buying advice.
