Some questions regarding this tablet.
Hey XDA, i'm a student from Ecuador.
This year at my school, we're required to have a tablet for digital texts. I was looking at the options available here (as school starts in less than a week, so that takes away the chance of importing any tablet), and while looking i came across this device at a Sony shop.
I'm interested on it, but i have some questions that the Sony rep couldn't answer me.
Is this tablet pretty fragile? I had a Nexus 7 (2012 model) which broke pretty quick, and i really don't have money to buy two tablets in a year.
How's the performance on the long term? It doesn't degrades like the Nexus 7?
Are there any better options than this device?
How good is Sony on updates? It would be really good if my tab was on par with my Nexus 4, Android version wise.
And lastly, how good are the speakers? I can't give an opinion of it because the place was overcrowded.
