One of the standout features of the Xperia Z2 Tablets is definitely the display, with Sony choosing not to just cram more pixels into its 10.1-inch display, but use some interesting technology to make the panel stand out from the crowd.
The 10.1-inch display on the Xperia Z2 Tablet is one of the best we've laid our eyes on, with some beautifully deep colors - something Sony attributes to its Live Color LED which adds the red and green elements into each LED. Not all of the colors just 'pop' on the Xperia Z2 Tablet display, but all of the colors in the world cannot replace the need for a display with a higher resolution.
We also have some front-facing stereo speaker which actually sounds quite good, and while they won't fill the entire room with audio, the bass behind them is actually better than normal. But it's the next feature that makes the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet really stand out on its own: IP55/IP58 rated waterproofing and dust resistance.
Waterproof Tablets Are Great!
Most people don't need to have their tablets have waterproof abilities, but if it's included in the price - which it is - then why not? Sony has provided an IP55/IP58 rating on the Xperia Z2 Tablet, which means we have a near waterproof and dust resistant tablet here.
I have two young daughters, so for my testing I actually used the Xperia Z2 Tablet in the shower and in the bath. I was playing back the Frozen soundtrack through Spotify on the tablet, without a problem - all while it was sitting against the shower, having water sprayed up onto it.
The next test saw me dunking it into the bath before my daughters jumped in, with my eldest daughter Delilah freaking out (she's four) at the fact that I had my tablet in the water. After a few seconds of me explaining that it was waterproof, she thought it was "cool" that the tablet was waterproof. So guess what we listened to for the rest of bath time? Let it go... Let it go.
