I have bought over 15 tablets in the last 2 years. all but 3 have been in the 7" realm. the other 3 were 10". I never bought an iPad (far to expensive, and being locked into their apps is not what i wanted) Many tablets i have bought are great in certain areas and suck in others. The primary feature other than speed is the display. I need it above all bright and great quality. The closest one i have found to fit the bill was the BlackBerry Playbook. But the lack of apps is what made it not so good to use. Now that i am in the market for something larger than 7" and smaller than 10" i found this sony tablet. After receiving it i noticed right away how great it felt in the hands, and how light it was. The screen is beautiful and bright. I love everything about this other than the way to short charging cable. Sony, you need to either make it 2-3 feet longer or at least offer a longer one. I wish i would have bought this tablet long ago, my quest for a great tablet is now over!

This is a nice iPad alternative tablet for Android lovers and "don't want to pay for Apple products because of their prices" people like me. However, Sony REALLY has to do something about the Power management. I have had issues with the tablet being left in my should tablet bag (which was made for an Apple iPad, Funny) in sleep mode and it heats up. This also kills the battery. If you are not using the tablet why is it still running to the point of heating up, like some old cell phone that heats up while talking on it. Really Sony this is a Must Fix! I've been download Power control apps from the Google App store but none have worked. Really I should not have to. I bought this tablet over the Galaxy Note 10.1 because of the great reviews and the IR Blaster for Tv's but it's a waste when the tablet battery keeps dying! Then when you connect the charger it takes forever to recharge (overnight). That's just too long. Before this table I had the Toshiba Thrive and it would charge in about an hour, or so... Never overnight. I'm happy that Sony addressed the Wifi issue and put out the firmware update to fix this issue... Now they need to fix this issue. I am trying, everyday, not to regret purchasing this tablet over the Note 10.1 but this battery is bugging me. Please fix Sony! Hope someone from Sony reads these reviews!

Living the Sony Lifestyle!

By iwantDash2

Comments about Sony Tablet™ S:

They have fixed the wifi issue. I have no problem connecting to my network. Again and Again! I have 2 Sony TVs and Home theater set up and the DASH. I have been wanting this tablet for along time. I mainly use a Blackberry Playbook for work with the BB10 Phone. If my need were not so business slanted I wouldn't buy anything else but Sony products. The Xperia will now be my home command center. FINALLY ! Thanks Sony! I am in the IT business and around electronics, computers and printing equipment every day and really Sony has been great. I have a XBR 6 tv that is 4 years old and a 3dHx800 that is two years years , both amaze me. Esp the XBR 6 , I use it for my main computer 32 inch screen. It has stayed flawless since day one. I even use it to play hardware demanding flight Sims from DCS. The Xperia gets me deep into the Android system. I don't like some of the apps that nag and advertise movies like one of the angry bird apps. Google statements about apps is also scary about all the info they want to collect, you really want to try and limit these company's spying of your personal information. Sony Please fix the Dash! Bring back Radio functions and ability to wake to a streaming radio station we pick. The c10 Dash used to be great. but the server move and other things have caused too much to happen to it. Sony please expand and integrate into the New Blackberry phones and Tablets. I am sure there is room for your apps and things there. Allow us to integrate all of our Sony products with the New Blackberry BB10 Systems! They rock and do not come with all the baggage and lag that the Android system have. You know the QNX runs critical systems on this planet, Android does not. THANKS! : )

Very happy with purchase, but....

By SonyGrrrl

from Buffalo, NY

Comments about Sony Tablet™ S:

I guess I too am a "Sony Loyalist," my son jokes that I have Sony tattooed on my butt somewhere. I love my tablet, and I find almost new things to do with it every week. However, out of the box my headphone jack provided a lot of static (I think this has to do with the way headphones don't snap in) and within 3 months, it had quit completely. It was a covered repair (and I advocate getting the warranty plan, anyways) but it seems like a design flaw, not just bad wiring. The design-by-committee problem strikes again, with the port cover for the side attached by a piece of plastic to the unit with the cover for the place you need to plug in a charger not attached at all, and just screaming to be lost. A future design improvement would be to make this little plug also attached, as well as covering the headphone jack for true splashproof use. Although I had a very long customer service phone call, this is the second time I've used Sony's repair services, and they are fast and courteous.

Better than the older model

By oister85

from Tampa FL

Comments about Sony Tablet™ S:

I like the feel of the tablet it has the aluminum body just like ipad. Xperia tablet s performs way better than the older version. Web browse is really smooth. I'm glad that sony put a better speaker in the tablet. Games performs really well, it has memory expansion. I like to mention it has 8 megapixel camera, the camera could be better for 8 pixels but is decent. Overall of the tablet is good for the money you would like it is a great alternative. I recommend it.

sony Xperia Tablet S

By Godson

from va

Comments about Sony Tablet™ S:

Good app and ultimate universal remote. Keep tabs on what your kids are watching even when you're not around. Sony's exclusive Guest Mode feature on Xperia Tablet makes it easy to set up parental controls, ensuring they only have access to family friendly entertainment options while helping you manage their digital lives. An effortless user switching option allows personalized configurations for different users, displaying different wallpapers, apps and widgets depending on who's logged in. Plus, as the device "owner", you have the power to select and manage which apps and widgets are accessible by other users.

Best tablet on the market

By BigcLittle

from Pa

Comments about Sony Tablet™ S:

I was shopping for a tablet for about 6 months and I made the best choice I ever could have. Love the ir remote the first night I had it I was working and was trying the remote on every tv, Home theater, and receiver we had and the remote is far easier than I thought it would be. also the guest mode is nice if you have children you can set the privacy settings for each guest and they can be password protected.

Couldn't Have Made a Better Purchase

By LoyalToSony

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about Sony Tablet™ S:

I just have to say this tablet smokes all the tablets including the iPads. The screen isn't retina but it is a 1280x800 resolution (720p HD) screen that just looks amazing! You also get the ability to add on a full size SD card which you don't get no where else. The back camera takes awesome pictures at 8 megapixels, and panoramas as well, and the video at Full HD 1080p all amazing. The processor is extremely FAST, have 15 apps open at a time and no lag. The graphics on it are amazing, they are perfect for gaming high intense graphics gaming. The speakers sound loud enough. I looked at all the possible choices I could have made from different brands and no one matched the specs this amazing tablet has! And also I got this tablet as well because Sony is the #1 brand in my opinion when it comes to any electronics I just love the Sony name and seeing it makes me remind myself I have the best product ever. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TABLET YOU WON'T REGRET IT!
