Format-Test: Sony Xperia Tablet Z - light tablet with user qualities

On Tablet-market , we will closely, but Sony is the matter with a certain ease: Its latest model for the device class, the Xperia Tablet Z is designed to win with a low weight and water resistance. format. at the device over several days has looked more closely and tested in practice.

Gleich der erste Eindruck: Das Ding ist wirklich sehr leicht, gerade im Vergleich zu anderen Tablets. Ein Blick auf das Faktenblatt (und später auf die Waage) zeigt: Es wiegt 500 Gramm. Das wird unter anderem dadurch erreicht, dass das Tablet besonders dünn ist (knapp sieben Millimeter) sowie durch den massigen Einsatz von Kunststoff. Allerdings wirkt das Xperia Z dadurch weniger stabil als andere Geräte - eine Schutzhülle scheint ratsam. Erstaunlicherweise ist gerade diese Leichtigkeit anfangs irritierend - man ist es offenbar eher gewohnt, schwerer Trümmer in Händen zu halten. Gerade bei längerer Nutzung zahlt sich das geringe Gewicht aber aus. 

( strong display

the 10, 1 inch large full-HD-screen(25, 7 centimetres ) provides a very good image, the resolution is 1920 mal 1200 image points. Just watching movies or watching TV-really is reminiscent of the programmes"genuine" TV-enjoy. The touchscreen responds well to inputs, but not outstanding quickly. Sometimes you have two-, three times on the display candid, in order to receive a response. The screen is scratch resistant, covered on the other hand , but also quite easily - Fat fingers must be careful. In the open, use is almost impossible with a strong incidence of light - but that is in all devices of this kind as. Use in swimming pool as E-Reader seems to be little useful, unless you hide or hide in the dressing room.

Why swimming at all? Well, the Xperia Tablet Z is waterproof and dustproof, according to Sony were the"forms of protection" FE55/IP57. this means: the thing is resistant to dust, nor"temporary incorporation of water" up to a depth of a metre. ."Strahlwasser " - for example , a Roman Empire - does not matter to the tablet. When testing this water resistance in a washbasin resp. under the water stream is shown: The tablet really does not get off. it must be ensured ., the fastenings will of the parties to close. So if you have the tablet in the pool, the tub or into other liquid-filled containers: An unintentional immersion does not matter.

3D-Sound only conditionally audible

The other features of the Android-Tablets ( version 4.1) we are appealing, the 1, 5 GHz-Snapdragon-Processor ensures fast handling of various tasks. The limitations of the camera and loudspeakers are as expected: 8 .-megapixel-he is a good thing for a maximum of snapshot, but nothing. But who wants to take photos with a tablet? Just like you can ask: Who wants to listen to the tablet music? the federal loudspeakers are"3D Sourround Sound", but the feeling is only one, if you let the tablet circling around your own body a few times. Otherwise it is recommended to connect external loudspeakers, for example via Bluetooth.

as regards other equipment is only the list by the acronym, which dominates the tablet: DLNA, USB, NFC, LTE, HDMI-Output and so on. this device could also provide a universal-Remote control for various other devices, for example , for the television. This function has not been tested in practice, we must believe that the manufacturer, that it works .

battery pack? Well. . . .

The battery should have a useful life of up to ten hours, in practice it showed weaknesses: intensive use of the tablet led to an end after about five hours, while watching videos with higher brightness setting even much earlier. This makes the Xperia Tablet Z not worse than most other tablets in this class, but not better. For this the device at the back is not warm as is the case with comparable models.

Bei geizhals.at derzeit ab rund 480 Euro (Version mit 16 GB, ohne LTE) erhältlich. Zum Vergleich: Das Samsung Note 10.1 kostet dort ab 410 Euro. 


The Sony Xperia Tablet Z is an interesting alternative to the already established tablets thanks to its water resistance and a very good display. it is particularly easy and, it is bad for camera, Battery power and loudspeaker.
