Test: Sony Xperia Tablet S

To the exterior is Xperia Tablet S a modest update of last year’s tablet with the similar name. But high performance and features such as water resistance and the folks making it one of the best plates right now.

Just over a year ago, Sony’s first tablet, Tablet s. This year’s Tablet have subtly different name Xperia Tablet s. In terms of design, the update is even more subtle. It has the same» folded newspaper «-edge at the top that makes the plate becomes thicker at the top but is really thin (8.8 mm). I like the design that stands out, and material sense. I like the format as well. Sony has opted for a somewhat smaller screen size than its competitors with its 9.4 inches. The screen feels nearly as big, but the plate is just over 2 cm less on the long side and it becomes easier to reach around the screen with your fingers when you hold it with both hands. The plate also gets just over a pound lighter than tiotums competitors and Ipad. If we delay us left on the outside we find a couple of odd design solutions. One is the memory card slot, which is for the larger sd kortformatet instead of micro sd which we are accustomed to mobiles. It’s not that silly thought, sd cards are much cheaper than the smaller cards with more memory. Less successful is the door to charging and usb port are not mired in the tablet. The door you better not waste, for it is related to one of the main selling points for the Xperia Tablet s: as long as the gaps are closed is Tablet weatherproof.*

Exactly how weatherproof Sony Xperia Tablet s is are a bit iffy. Sony specifies no ip rating which is otherwise customary when one measures the level of water protection. Rather than giving it as an example that you can use it in the rain or in wet fingers without worrying about. We interpret it to mean that it can withstand water splashes, but not to be submerged in the water, and we would not take a chance on to flush it under the tap. Some water protection feels anyway as a big plus for the plate, so keep track of the small connector plug.

Good but not best

I’ve been a bit spoiled by flat screens lately, so I don’t think the screen instantly impresses. First, the resolution of 1280 x 720 is no longer the best, and even if you are content with the sharper screens. But the viewing angle and pressure sensitivity is good. As usual, Sony delivers their devices with protective plastic on the screen, so if you think it starts getting scratched and scrubby out in a short time, you can peel it off the plastic film.

However, what is on top is the quad-core processor at 1.3 ghz, and Xperia Tablet s ports in the top tier on most benchmark I run. It is clear that the lower screen resolution not only is detrimental when the plate is capable of running graphics-heavy games without the hacks in the slightest, I otherwise had problems at higher screen resolutions.

The system is in Tablet Android Xperia 4.0.3. Sony has added some customizations of varying quality. On-screen keyboard, for example, is clearly better than the standard keyboard, and I especially like that you get both letters and digits at the same time, when it’s time to fill in the passwords in applications and Web sites.

I am less satisfied with the used down the plate with lots of Sony services and apps that are mostly Web links to sam working partner. I do a spring cleaning and cleans up Socialife (mostly an awkward way to read Facebook), Topics-Select Widget, Sony, Sony Reader (book store are not supported in Sweden), Music Unlimited (music shop actually works in Sweden, but I don’t need another music service), Xperia Games, Wildtangent Games and Gameloft Games from your home screens. I wish there was some way to get rid of them from the main menu.

I do not know what Sony done to SVT Play to work in full-screen mode, but does make it, something is not spoiled with on Android tablets. Another adaptation is the ability to turn on guest mode, where you get access to your own desktop where you can limit the applications that are available. This particular feature makes me either happy or sad.

A feature that I find is a discreet plus is that the plate has an infrared transmitter, and can act as General remote control for home electronics. There are still quite a few devices in the home that use such remotes, and Xperia Tablet s seems to have support for most.

Another fun feature is that widgets can run as the parent window. Via the menu in the bottom row, you can open the browser, a timer, calculator or really what widget you downloaded and be lying on top of the app running. All widgets can be moved around and scaled in size and provides some similar function as standalone video window, for example, Galaxy, but with slightly larger application area.

Several peculiarities

The plate has its peculiarities, for example, it can sometimes take up to two seconds for the screen to wake up when you press the start button, but on the whole I really like the Sony Xperia Tablet s. Plate is available in four variants, and personally, I would choose the cheapest if I would buy it. For 3 800 SEK, you get 16 gigabytes of built-in storage memory. For 1 200 SEK, you get 64 gigabytes, but for the money, you can instead buy a 128-gigabyte memory card for your plate. I would not pay $1 200 extra for 3 g, then I prefer to distribute wlan on my mobile. For SEK 3 800 is plate a good buy.

“On the other hand”

Daniel Hessel: Tablet S was a really good plate when it came last year, with lots of small details that made the signed to Sony something a bit more unique than the cut. Xperia Tablet’s continues on that track with how much fun extras. The downside is that the app for ir remote control feels very much more troublesome than what it could have been.
