Display & Speaker Quality
Normally this is where our 'Features' page would be, but we're going to do a bit of evolving of our smart device reviews over the coming weeks and months. The display and speakers are one of the more important aspects of a tablet, so we'll give them their own section to breathe from now on.
Sony have chosen to give their Tablet S a decent 1280x800 TFT LCD, this gives it a nice sharp image, but it doesn't compare with the Retina displays in Apple's iPad, nor does it come close to ASUS' Full HD-based tablets like the Transformer Pad Infinity.
This doesn't make it bad, but if you're like me and use enough of these devices, it's something you instantly notice. The display to look at, aesthetically, is great - a nice black border around the tablet with the 'SONY' logo in the top left.
Moving onto speakers, the Sony Tablet S sports two down-firing speakers on its back, and they provide some decent audio for a tablet. They won't replace your normal speakers, but they get the job done. I thought they would've been louder, but you can't ask for everything, right?
I mostly tested YouTube videos - movie trailers, some of suspicious0bservers videos (he does some great science/space videos) which is mainly just voice - and the Tablet S provided some nice, clear audio. It definitely didn't come close to Samsung's offerings with their Galaxy Tab 8.9 tablet, but it was impressive nonetheless.
