Stellar Android Tablet
This is a great tablet. The included keyboard works really well, and is pretty easy to use once you adjust for the smaller size. I prefer the chicklet keys here over the flat felt buttons from a couple of tablets back. The screen offers beautiful, rich colors, and the tablet is very responsive. I had been buying a Sony tablet every year since launch, and finally took a break between the Tablet Z and this one, skipping the Z2 and the Z3.
My Tablet Z is still fully functional, and I am still using it alongside the Z4. The Z is showing its age though, which highlights the performance aspect of the Z4 Tablet. I prefer the way the Z feels in my hands over the Z4, though, which is why I haven't fully moved over to the Z4. The Z has a smooth, satiny touch, and the Z4 feels more like graphite. This isn't a problem, but is a design preference. I just like the feel of the Z better.
Everything else about the tablet is outstanding. It charges quickly, the battery lasts a long time between charges, and it is pretty fun to use. If you are looking for a great Android tablet that competes well against the iPad, you will want to consider the Xperia Z4 from Sony.
